Concord, NH, — On November 15th, during an inaugural appreciation reception that was hosted by Future In Sight the Client Services Committee surprised John and Jayne Nucci of Chester with the 2017 Jo Adcock Service Award.
The Jo Adcock Service Award is presented each year to a volunteer(s) who has proven leadership skills, provides outstanding service and commitment to the field of blindness and who has been volunteering for at least five years in the state of New Hampshire.
John and Jane have, as a team, been volunteers for Future In Sight since the spring of 2011. Over this time they have supported our mission in a variety of ways: they have been matched to support the needs of a client, are members of the Manchester Advisory Committee, are members of the annual Walk for Sight Committee, offer to drive clients to appointments and errands on an ‘on-call’ basis, provide rides to clients attending Future In Sights group meetings and events, have been Ambassadors representing the agency at countless health fairs and expos, and are members of the Development Committee. On top of all of these commitments, they always offer additional time if help is needed with various tasks such as hanging posters, dropping off materials, delivering supplies, etc. Over the years, John and Jane have volunteered a total of 1,016 hours of time and have driven 10,793 miles to support the work of Future In Sight and the clients that we serve! In the words of one of our clients, “John and Jane Nucci are fabulous people. I’m fortunate to receive assistance with transportation from them. I enjoy their company very much. They always give 150% when advocating for Future In Sight. It’s a pleasure to have them in my life.”
