  • So long as I can help others, even a little, I am happy.
  • … I think the only way to show our commitment to the community is by becoming active in it and by helping people who really need help.
  • It is very exciting for Jan and me … that the charitable giving we believe in so strongly will continue beyond our lifetime through the Foundation.
  • …the biggest pleasure I get is to be able to do something for somebody else. And I mean that from the bottom of my heart.
  • Every organization needs volunteers and concerned people to give of themselves - in time, resources or caring about others.
  • All of us only have a certain amount of time given to us and when you give some of that time to express your appreciation, I believe it is the most important thing you could do.
  • The future of every community rests in the hands of its children.
  • The main thing I think in this life is that you leave something behind…something that stands for what you stand for.  And one thing I really stand for is our kids.
  • As a community, we must realize that some young people require extra help outside their families to solve their problems and find direction in life.
  • When we look around in our communities, we often find there are so many who need someone to care.
  • I believe in sharing my success with others and I abide by the golden rule of doing unto others as I would like to have them do unto me.
  • I was raised in the Depression … I remember. I remember what it was like to struggle and need help.
  • Working together we can make a difference in our community, one child at a time.
  • Everyone has something they can contribute to their community. It isn't just about money.
  • The main thing is that you leave something behind. Never forget where you came from and try to give something back.
  • … I think all of us leave some kind of legacy, not just to our family, but to the community and the people we've worked with and lived with.
  • The motivation is children and education and giving the people of this community an opportunity.
