Constancy in Giving Supports Constancy of Service

“We put our trust in New Danville. It is not a blind trust; it is well earned. We donate consistently to support consistency of community,” said Vernon Friday. His wife, Lois, nodded in agreement. She added, “It takes special understanding and patience with love, which is why we support the general needs of New Danville. Everyone there has those special traits.”

Vernon and Lois are the grandparents of Justin, a Meadowbrook resident since 2014.  Prior to living on-site in New Danville’s residential community, Justin attended the day programs. It is because of his growth and development over the years that the Fridays have made more than 50 contributions, ranging from automated monthly payments to donations of woodworking equipment.

They have been members of the Founders Circle donor recognition when they were able to use the automatic process to make monthly contributions.  Donors who use automatic payments are called “Sustainers” in the new, recently rolled out donor recognition program. “By being blessed, we try to pass it along,” Vernon said.
