The Hospice Foundation of Cortland County (HFCC), a nonprofit foundation that supports Hospicare, welcomed two new board members in 2020: Nancy Wainwright and Evelyn Sammons.
A resident of the Cortland area for more than five decades, Evelyn Sammons is a past board member for HFCC and for Hospicare. Now retired after a 30-year career with the Homer School District, Evelyn enjoys reading, hiking and biking. She is a strong advocate for hospice, believing that all patients and families in the Cortland area can benefit from the full range of services available to them, including grief counseling.
Nancy Wainwright, a resident of Cortland County for 70 years, served as secretary for the Marathon Elementary School for over two decades. Nancy enjoys traveling, reading and spending time with family. She views her volunteering as a way to “pay forward” her gratitude for the hospice services her family members have received in the past. Nancy is also a strong advocate for fundraising, understanding that philanthropy helps patients receive exceptional care.
Hospicare thanks the entire HFCC board for the ways in which they support Hospicare’s mission!
