Charitable Giving

Garden Spot Village depends on contributions from donors like you.

Your donation to the Garden Spot Village Benevolent Fund helps to support residents who need financial assistance. 

A Gift By Credit Card

To make a gift by credit card, please call Janine Ziegler at 717-355-6288. 


Ada was small in stature, but I never met anyone with a bigger heart. Her spirit for charitable giving touches me.

“I wish it was more,” she always says with a smile when handing me a check.

Unlike some people who feel others with more money should give to meet the needs of Garden Spot Village, Ada gives unselfishly from her limited resources.

At 80 years young, she believes it’s “only right to support the community we call home.”

Thanks to people like Ada who have given to our Fellowship Campaign, residents and families can enjoy a beautiful chapel/auditorium for spiritual and social fellowship. Her gifts to the Benevolent Fund help to provide continuing care for those who need financial support. Every contribution, small or large, benefits our residents today and in the future.
