Featured Volunteer

Meet Reba Stewart…

Reba joined the FFB family through her employer, LANE Construction. Since her first VisionWalk just a couple of years ago, Reba has worked to not only build Team LANE’s fundraising, but also their number of walkers. She has taken on a can-do attitude and looks for any opportunity to share the VisionWalk story! Through LANE, Reba was able to host a picnic and carwash to raise funds and awareness for the 2016 VisionWalk. Because of the support LANE and Reba have provided to other organizations in the community, Reba was able to rally support from many in the community to make their 2016 VisionWalk team a great success. For her outstanding attitude and excitement about our goal to cure blindness, we have asked Reba to serve as your 2017 VisionWalk Chair. Please join the entire FFB Charlotte Chapter in welcoming Reba to our Chapter and wish her luck as VisionWalk Chair!
