“I am grateful for the support of JE Dunn Construction and honored to accept this responsibility with an organization dedicated to removing barriers and offering hope and opportunity to deserving teens,” said Pope. “ODBI’s board is passionately engaged and actively working to expand our positive impact in the lives of those in need.”

A Certified Public Accountant, Pope joined Orange Duffel Bag Initiative in 2013, seeking, he says, “to be part of a great charitable organization that is making a real difference in the community it serves.” In 2015, he became ODBI treasurer.
