“We are thankful for the efforts of the American Red Cross and others who are working together to provide basic necessities and assistance to those affected by this storm,” says Jeff Kolesar, interim president and CEO of Renaissance.“With thousands of people suffering losses from Hurricane Ian, we trust the Red Cross to help with relief and recovery efforts.”
