Life can have a meaning after life has passed; through a legacy and through far-reaching gifts into future generations. Mrs. Glaser is a regular donor who has also included Cherry Street in her estate planning. She explains, “Our riches are not ours, they are God’s.”
Chuck passed away in August 2017. Giving back to others has been a part of her marriage all along. “Even before Chuck and I were married he supported Cherry Street.” With her husband’s passing, Mrs. Glaser has continued their goals. The Glasers have always sought to disburse funds to organizations that are “doing things to spread God’s word and perpetuate the Christian Life,” explained Mrs. Glaser.
As they got older they decided to sit down with a financial planner to ensure their children were provided for, they were provided for in their retirement, and they could use their blessings to be a blessing to others in the future.
“One of the things I like about Cherry Street Mission Ministries is because; as they say; it is not a hand out but a hand up. It’s a way to help transform people from a life that cannot be sustainable into a life of redemption. And that’s one of the reasons why I continue to support Cherry Street.”
Mrs. Glaser reflected on Luke 12:48 “From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked”. In these uncertain times Mrs. Glaser has a thought about the pandemic we are experiencing. “As Christians we have to continue to trust the Lord . . . He will supply all of our needs in every way. And when it comes right down to it you will find out what’s really valuable in this world post COVID-19. It’s the love that we shared only with those around us and sharing with those who need it.” Mrs. Glaser hopes to inspire others to consider Cherry Street in their planned giving and estate planning.
