Many thanks to the Volunteers of America, a national nonprofit organization. VOA provides support programs to more than 2 million worthy disabled people in the USA every year. In 1965 a client named Bob and Doug Martinson were appointed as co-trustees for Bob’s nephew after the nephew’s mother was killed in a boating accident near Ditto Landing. The nephew, had Down’s Syndrome. He died in March of 2011. VOA had provided Bob’s nephew with employment, room, board, transportation and counseling for around 20 years. Each year the income from the trust fund was distributed to VOA. When he died, Bob and Doug jointly decided to distribute the remainder of the trust funds to VOA in appreciation of the support he received from VOA.
