People for Care and Learning recently acquired a new leadership team with Travis Johnson serving as its executive director. An integral part of Travis’ family already, PCL participation is nothing new. Kelly, his wife, worked as director of Buy a Tree—Change a Life, an organization they founded to assist children globally and locally.
Travis’ journey with PCL began when former director, Dr. Fred Garmon, invited him to visit Cambodia, and his involvement progressed into a fully committed and all-encompassing aim to continue a transformative work of inspiring hope and empowering potential.
Joining the leadership team is Dr. Fred Toke who works directly with the executive director as the Chief of Operations. Fred is a prolific communicator and is a gifted organizational leader. Continuing in engagement with PCL is former executive director, Dr. Fred Garmon, who will serve as special adviser to the executive director.
PCL’s donors and volunteers have broken poverty cycles, redeemed and transformed, and have provided hope. The most successful year to date was 2016 where 38 churches in 12 states mobilized over 2,000 volunteers who sold 10,670 trees to help children.
Travis states: “PCL isn’t just an organization. It is a family; it’s a force for good; it is a great hope made up of people like yourselves. We cannot accomplish the highest hopes of this organization without you!”
