For the Easter holiday, Maureen's Hope Foundation donated 70 spring baskets to Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital. The baskets were placed at the bedside of each pediatric patient who spent Easter in the hospital. This is the fourth consecutive year that Maureen's Hope Foundation has donated spring baskets to pediatric patients at the hospital.
Founded by Susan Bertrand of Baldwinsville, Maureen's Hope Foundation was started in memory of Bertrand's sister, Maureen Humphrey, who died of cancer at the age of 31. The foundation offers practical support and assistance to people in the community who are battling cancer and other life altering illnesses.
