Cora George first learned about Martha & Mary through her church on Bainbridge Island. She believed in caring for children and seniors and found that Martha & Mary mirrored her values. Community service, friends and family, and her faith community were supremely important to Cora, even as she pursued a successful business career.
Through her service and dedication to Martha & Mary, Cora found great satisfaction as a volunteer, trustee, and donor. Her cooperative leadership and business savvy made her an effective Board member, and she enjoyed working in the Martha & Mary gift shop, making friends with residents and staff of the Health and Rehab Center. We were greatly saddened when she passed away in late 2012.
Cora believed deeply in the meaningful difference that Martha & Mary makes in the lives of Kitsap seniors and children. She cared so much that she planned ahead to help us continue this work after she was gone. Cora included Martha & Mary in her estate plans and made us a beneficiary of one of her investments, leaving us a very significant donation.
An extraordinary gift like Cora’s is more than a contribution. It’s an invitation to you and our entire community to join together with Martha & Mary to nurture kids and care for our frail elders.Receive email updates when we add updates.
