Sponsors of Savannah Maritime After Hours Donates $1,500 to Ronald McDonald House of the Coastal Empire
Maritime community leaders, Ben Goldberg of JIT Warehousing and Logistics, Larry Hearn and Ryan Faulk of Savannah River Logistics, Billy Robinson and Jed Young of Port City Logistics, presented the check to Bill Sorochak, executive director of the Ronald Mcdonald House of the Coastal Empire.
The donation was raised through after-hours networking events held the first Wednesday of each month. The donation was increased this year by $500 to support the growing needs of the House and their residents.
“We are incredibly thankful for Savannah Maritime’s annual donation,” said Sorochak. “This year’s monetary increase will allow our organization to help our families even more, and I can’t stress to the public enough that, really, every penny means something to us.”
