You may "Leave a Legacy" to the Rehabilitation Center for Children and Adults, Inc. like the following friends who have helped people with physical disabilities since 1990. and Harriett Cornell gifted over three million dollars in their estate plans to support the Rehabilitation Center for Children and Adults.  These funds provide physical, occupational and speech therapy for people with physical disabilities who are uninsured or under-insured. The Cornells requested a simple recognition plaque to read, to help others with post polio syndrome. Freddie and Bill Koch were friends and neighbors of this generous couple.  Board member Freddie Koch said the Cornells had been aware of the Rehabilitation Center and were very interested in its charity work, adding, they never turn anyone away because of an inability to pay. Spreckels Munn donated to the Rehabilitation Center for Children and Adults because she knew about the programs from her friends and family who had benefited from therapy services.  Through attorney and friend, Martin (Skip) Purcell, she made some major gifts to the Rehabilitation Center.  Mrs. Martin (Connie) Purcell delivered the checks from this quiet benefactor, stating only that “the donor knows of your good works.”  In January 2000, Mrs. Munn passed away leaving a will that provided generously for the Rehabilitation Center and many other charities.  As a result, the Rehabilitation Center received over five million!  Mrs. Munn’s gift is one of the largest on record for the Rehabilitation Center.  Along with others who have remembered to ‘leave a legacy,’ she assures that children and adults with physical disabilities will receive quality care regardless of their financial situation.

Naoma Donnelley Haggin gifted one million dollars in her estate plan to support the Rehabilitation Center for Children and Adults. These funds provide physical, occupational and speech therapy for people with physical disabilities who have no or limited insurance. Naoma served on the Board of Governors, chaired the Annual Soiree and was a major donor. The Physical Therapy gym, where she received therapy services, is named in her memory. Addressed as "Nay," she carried a gentle, graceful demeanor and supported many other community programs. In appreciation for her extraordinary contributions toward helping others, Nay was appointed, in memoriam, to the Rehabilitation Center's Honorary Board of Governors on April 7, 2004, placing her name in its history in perpetuity.
