Chef Matt Cohen, owner of New South Pub & Catering at
   the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum, has recently joined the board of
   directors for the Savannah Chapter of the American Red Cross.

   “I am truly honored to have been asked to join the board,”
   says Cohen. Cohen, who has been involved with many of the local
   charitable efforts held by the Red Cross over the years, chose to join
   the Board of Directors for the Savannah chapter because he believes in
   helping those in need. “Disaster victims need immediate
   assistance during and following a crisis,” says Cohen,
   “and the Savannah Red Cross is there right away.” Cohen is
   also an advocate for the Red Cross because he is very
   community-minded, and every dollar raised for the Red Cross in
   Savannah gets spent on local victim relief.

   Executive Director of the Savannah Red Cross, Robin Wingate, says that
   they are absolutely thrilled to have Matt join the Board of Directors
   for the local chapter. “Matt’s willingness to share both
   his time and talent to help charities better serve our community is
   well-known. His passion for cooking rivals his passion for helping
   others and we look forward to his incredible energy!”
