The American Red Cross on Long Island recently welcomed four new individuals to its board of directors—J. Bryan Anthony, philanthropist and returning Long Island Red Cross board member; Joe Campolo, managing partner of Campolo, Middleton & McCormick; Joseph Louchheim, president of the Press News Group; and Nancy Simmons, executive vice president and chief administrative officer at Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center.
The Long Island Red Cross board of directors now comprises 38 business and community leaders who volunteer their time to help oversee the organization’s mission on Long Island. The Long Island Red Cross responds to approximately 200 disasters a year, and serves more than 2.8 million residents.
“I’m thrilled to welcome these four civic-minded Long Islanders to our board of directors,” said John Miller, CEO of the Long Island Red Cross. “I know that their experience, enthusiasm and community spirit will help to further the mission of the Long Island Red Cross in countless ways.”
“The American Red Cross is such a prestigious organization. I am proud to be part of it again and to help support its mission and all the volunteers out in the community on a daily basis,” said Anthony.
“It is an honor being able to give back to an organization that has directly helped me during my time enlisted in the military,” said Campolo.
“Serving the Red Cross as a member of its Long Island Chapter board of directors allows me to leverage my interests in volunteerism while helping to guide and grow a vital organization that has a positive impact on so many lives over a huge geographic area,” said Louchheim.
“I joined the board of the Red Cross because of its mission, history and real time humanitarian efforts to those in need of relief. I hope to make a meaningful contribution to the work of the Red Cross and am honored to serve,” said Simmons.
