To John, philanthropy is about giving back to his community.

“Philanthropy allows me to give back to the community that has given so much to me and provide opportunities for future generations,” he said. “I truly believe a lot of the experiences I had growing up here helped mold the person I am today, and I want others in the community to thrive.”
