Today Mike Durkin, CEO and President of United Way came to tour the American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts. United Way is one of our largest donors and Mike has been with United Way his whole career.  He is working toward promoting the partnerships of organizations like the American Red Cross to help promote powerful community engagement. 

The tour started with a brief introduction and interview which led into a tour of the 4th and 5th floors of the Red Cross’ Cambridge headquarters.  Durkin visited the Health Care Job Training department which included a classroom visit on the 2nd floor. The tour proceeded to the 1st floor where Leighton Jones, the Director of Emergency Services, gave a brief update on the Red Cross Disaster Services Program.  It ended with a trip to the Red Cross Food Pantry in Boston.
