Attorney Alison Cox, who practices from the firm's Martinsburg office, is involved in many community organizations. "Part of my impetus for taking a position at Bowles Rice was the encouragement the firm gave for me to engage in community service to build my practice and assist the firm with client development," said Alison. One of the organizations she is currently involved in is Hospice of the Panhandle, where she serves as a member of the Board of Directors.
Today, courtesy of the Bowles Rice Foundation, Alison was able to present a donation in person to Hospice of the Panhandle CEO Nikki Bigiarelli (photo, left) and Maria Lorensen, Development Director (photo, right). The timing of this donation is serendipitous, as November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month. Earlier this month, Alison shared a blog post on what she has learned from serving on the Board of Directors at Hospice of the Panhandle.
"While serving my community is a commitment of time and resources, the benefits to me professionally and personally are worth the additional time and effort," said Alison. "And as Winston Churchill famously stated, 'We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.'"
