Welcoming the newest staff member .... Sarah!

Hello! I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Sarah Wainio, and I am The Ulman Cancer Fund’s newest staff member. I came to UCF by way of AmeriCorps’ program Volunteer Maryland. I am so excited and honored to be able to help with UCF’s mission to empower young adults, families and the community to take control of their cancer experience.

Here you can find more information on AmeriCorps and Volunteer Maryland:

Below you will see a picture of my fellow Volunteer Maryland Coordinators (for other organizations) and Volunteer Maryland staff:

A little background on me… I’m a recent graduate from Fordham University in New York. I graduated from Fordham with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology and a second degree in Philosophy. I have a long history of volunteerism, including volunteering in Thailand and Israel. I also worked in volunteer management at the public radio station WFUV 90.7. Now that I’ve finished school I feel a very strong connection to spending time volunteering in my own community.

During my 11 months here I will be working to recruit, energize, and recognize volunteers. If you are interested in hearing about our volunteer opportunities at The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults please contact me at
410.964.0202 ext 109

Also, keep in mind that October 24th is National Make a Difference Day! Start thinking about how you can help now!
