Chuck and Zita Harris – Leaving a Legacy

In 2015, we lost two dear friends in Chuck and Zita Harris, both passing away within a couple of months of each other. Although they are no longer with us, because of a generous estate gift, they will now be able to support the services of Senior Neighbors on an annual basis into the future through the Senior Neighbors endowment fund.

Chuck and Zita Harris joined the Senior Neighbors Legacy Society in 2007 indicating that they had designated Senior Neighbors in their will with an estate gift. Although they officially joined the Legacy Society in 2007, they had been loyal supporters of programming to seniors since the early 90s. Upon their acceptance they stated, “We believe in Senior Neighbors and the wonderful work they do to help seniors in our community. We want to ensure that Senior Neighbors will continue to offer innovative programs and services long into future.”

We are extremely grateful for the generosity of Chuck and Zita Harris, their kindness will be a true blessing for countless seniors for many years to come.
