The Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge announced today the recent creation of the Valley Program for Aging Services Endowment Fund.

The estate of Leonard Penland, a Waynesboro resident who died in 2009, made the first contribution of $100,000. Mr. Penland wished to honor Lewis Coiner of Waynesboro (Coiner was the first executive director of the Foundation) in support of his work with elderly citizens.

Penland indicated that he hoped to provide a way for VPAS “to further its purposes.”

Paul Lavigne, President of the Valley Program for Aging Services, has been notified of the gift. Additional contributions to the VPAS Endowment Fund are welcome by check payable to the Community Foundation, P.O. Box 815, Staunton, Va. 24402.
