Sponsors of Savannah Maritime After Hours Donate $2,000 to Ronald McDonald House of the Coastal Empire
(SAVANNAH, GA) For the fifth consecutive year, Savannah Maritime After Hours presented a holiday donation to the Ronald McDonald House of the Coastal Empire. This year, the donation was increased by $500, for a total of $2,000, which will be used to support the growing needs of the House and their residents.
Maritime community leaders, Ben Goldberg of JIT Warehousing and Logistics, Larry Hearn and Ryan Faulk of Savannah River Logistics, and Jed Young of Port City Logistics presented the check to Bill Sorochak, executive director of the Ronald Mcdonald House of the Coastal Empire.
Each year, members of the Savannah Maritime After Hours are able to raise these funds through networking events held on the first Wednesday of each month.
“A small donation during the holidays can make a big difference for these families during such a stressful time,” said Ryan Faulk, Partner of Savannah River Logistics. “We believe families are stronger together and a sick child heals faster when they are surrounded by love and support. And we are extremely grateful to all of our members who make this annual donation possible.”
