Bequests and Supporting the Troops

Bequests and Supporting the Troops

Milton and Beatrice have been faithful supporters of The Salvation Army. They believe it is important to support and encourage The Salvation Army in its mission to serve others.

Milton: Several years ago, Beatrice and I decided to become part of The Salvation Army's mission. I remembered how The Salvation Army helped me.  We wanted to help them, help others.  For that reason, Beatrice and I have made cash donations over the years to help others.

Beatrice: We wanted to do more than to just make gifts. Milton and I have been careful over the years and have accumulated some resources. We plan to be generous with family, but we also have the ability to be generous with charity.

After talking it over, we decided to leave a bequest in our Will. Our attorney took the simple language available from The Salvation Army and included a nice bequest. We are delighted that we will be helping others through The Salvation Army.
