Greg Holm, Board of Director
After living his entire life in Orinda, California, and 32 years working as a Firefighter for the Orinda Fire District, Greg and his wife Karen moved to Truckee in 2004. Because their family was always surrounded by animals (dogs, cats, horses) it was natural for both of them to become active volunteers for the Humane Society of Truckee Tahoe when they moved to Truckee. In 2007, looking for a “little more to give”, Greg began volunteering for Project MANA where today he is active in their Food Express, FACE, and Distribution programs. After many years volunteering with Project MANA, Greg became a Board Member in 2012. Greg’s motto is, “I get much more than I give”.
