Connecting People Who Care with Causes that Matter

Memorial Fund for Late Minisink Valley Counselor Established Within Community Foundation

Family members of the late Christine Verheyleweghen Thomas have recently established a charitable fund in her memory at the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan, ensuring her legacy is carried on forever. The Christine Thomas Memorial Fund for Helping Others will provide grants to nonprofits that support suicide prevention initiatives. Scholarships may also be awarded to graduates of Minisink Valley High School.

Christine spent nineteen years as a school counselor for both the Minisink Valley and Port Jervis school districts. She was a tireless advocate for those in need, which was made evident by the countless students who maintained contact long after they parted ways professionally. This fund, established in her honor, will forever memorialize Christine for her lifetime of love and “helping others.”

Charitable contributions to Christine Thomas Memorial Fund for Helping Others may be made to CFOS-Christine Thomas Memorial Fund for Helping Others and sent to the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan, 30 Scott’s Corners Drive, Suite 203, Montgomery, NY 12549. Secure online donations may also be made here. The Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.  All gifts are tax deductible under current tax laws. For more information, call the Community Foundation at (845) 769-9393.

On Saturday, May 12, 2018, NCPA will present a new Major Spring Fundraising Event, a Latin Dance Party Concert/Celebration featuring Tito Puente Jr. and his Ensemble, at the Ritz Theatre in Newburgh, NY. NCPA Board member Linda Magnusson Rosario and her husband Steve, have graciously agreed to underwrite this event, but we need your help to not only ensure a sold-out concert, but help pave the way to make this opportunity an annual spring fundraising event. 

How can you help? It’s simple- please mark your calendar, and help publicize the event, become a NCPA Latin Dance Party Ambassador by reaching out to your personal and business contacts to become sponsors of the vent, to buy tickets and/or place an ad in the vent program. 

We are also organizing a committee to assist with the event logistics, and if you’d like to be part of this committee, please contact me at DAassociatespr@gmail.com. 

Show your support today! We appreciate your assistance in making this Annual Spring Event a cornerstone of our NCPA fundraising efforts.
