The Commonwealth LTC Foundation Receives Gift

The Commonwealth Long Term Care Foundation, an affiliate of VHCA, has received a gift of $50,000 from the estate of Maria Teresa Regirer.  The gift will be used to fund Regirer Nursing Scholarships presented annually to deserving CNAs, LPNs and RNs working in VHCA member facilities.  Walter and Maria Teresa Regirer funded these nursing scholarships with an initial contribution of $250,000 and now Maria Teresa Regirer’s estate has added $50,000.

Steve Morrisette, VHCA President, said “Walter and Maria Teresa Regirer were always proponents of continuing education for long term care providers.  What a great legacy they have left us and we will be able to provide significant scholarship help to hundreds of LTC nurses for many years to come because of their generosity.”
