As a passionate philanthropist, Thomas Zenovic gives back to his community through participation in a variety of charitable groups and causes, including the Eagles’ Wings Foundation (EWF). Through the support of people like Thomas Zenovic, the EWF provides disaster relief after storms and other catastrophic events.
The Eagles’ Wings Foundation was started in 1999, amidst relief efforts in the Bahamas in the wake of Hurricane Floyd. EWF’s leader, Scott Lewis, had been appointed to the position of incident commander to deal with the calamity, and subsequently this led to the formation of the organization’s first leadership team. Since its inception, the group has continued to learn from each of its deployments, and this has improved their response capacity as well as their ability to serve as a resource for other organizations. Some of the major disasters to which they have responded include the Deepwater Horizon oil spill of 2010, the Japanese tsunami and earthquake of 2011, and a series of hurricanes that occurred in 2004 and 2005. EWF regularly works with government organizations, assuring that disaster victims receive the most efficient response possible.
