"We believe in the mission and work of the charitable organizations we are actively supporting during our lifetime and want to leave a significant donation to be used after we are gone to help ensure the continued good work of these organizations.

We have chosen West Valley Community Services as a charity for our legacy gifts because of the important work it does in our community in meeting needs like hunger and homelessness. WVCS needs this type of community support for its long-term viability."
