CHSC Receives Bequest

CHSC extends heartfelt thanks to Ms. Emma Marie "Emrie" Thoresen, a long-time donor who supported the many programs and services we offer. Emrie passed away in 2019, but her generosity was extended with a wonderful gift from her estate. Her gift means Emrie will be inducted into our Heritage Society.

Says Dr. Jennell Vick, CHSC Executive Director, "I'm humbled by the generosity of Ms. Thoresen. She supported over 50 organizations in the region during her lifetime and CHSC is so proud to have been part of her estate plans. This gift will go a long way toward sustaining our programs in this, the first year of our second century!"

Leaving a planned gift to CHSC through a charitable bequest in your will or living trust is an outstanding way to combine your desire to support our mission and your overall financial, tax, and estate planning goals.
