“We are thrilled to support their disaster relief programs and look forward to learning more about their educational programs,” FBP Site Project Director Greg Wilkett said. “We know there is a great need for their services and are proud that we have several employees at the site who volunteer and are making a difference in their communities as well.”

Regional Philanthropy Officer Jeffrey Hornyak has been with the Red Cross for about three years.
