Meet our New Board Members!

We are proud to welcome our new board members to Community Servings. They are wonderful additions to our organization and we feel privileged that they joined our cause to provide food and nutrition services to the critically ill. 
  
  • Catherine Matthews has been an avid volunteer her whole life. Growing up with critical illness in her family, Catherine understood early in life how illness can affect one's family. "The work that Community Servings does for its clients helps to create the kind of society that I want to live in. I am proud to contribute whatever skills I have to enable Community Servings to continue and even expand its mission." 
  • John Milligan is retired from his position as Executive Vice President at Fleet Bank. This year, John served as a committee member for Community Servings' annual spring gala, LifeSavor and on the finance committee. "I am very impressed with the agency's operations and fiscal soundness. The LifeSavor event is a true homerun." 
  • Doreen Rigby is the Executive Vice President of Global Operations at State Street Corporation. She joined to "give back to the community specifically as it relates to African Americans and women. Community Servings heavily supports individuals from these groups and it provides an opportunity to serve on a board that supports a significant need in society. "
