We are so thankful for the long-time support of the Burns family to Volunteers of America North Louisiana. The entire family has worked to brighten the lives for so many of those we serve.

 

In addition to being Evergreen Society donors, they have held holiday parties, played games, visited with residents, and served on our Board.

 

Chase Burns, Board of Directors member, represented this remarkable family on March 9, 2021 and announced the establishment of the Joan Townsend Reinsch Fund within our endowment to provide critically important resources to help Volunteers of America serve children of God needing support in very significant ways.

 

“It is such a pleasure to join with you and your family in honoring Beth’s mother by creating something that will benefit our community in perpetuity,” said Chuck Meehan, President & CEO.

 

Tori Burns, who is also a Board of Directors member, recently shared this about her grandmother, “Her greatest legacy was her children, so how appropriate it is that the endowment fund for Children’s Services will be named after her.”
