In recognition of its support of local food insecurity relief efforts, Crosby Marketing Communications has been named the 2023 Community Partner of the Year by the Anne Arundel County Food Bank (AACFB). Crosby President & CEO Raymond Crosby accepted the award at the food bank’s recent Feeding Hope event.
The annual award is given to a business that has gone above and beyond to support the mission of AACFB. In the past five years, Crosby has donated $240,000 to the food bank, as well as volunteer time.
“Not only have the financial contributions of Crosby Marketing made a difference for our neighbors experiencing food insecurity, but their generous gifts have motivated others to support our important mission,” said Leah Aiello Paley, Chief Executive Officer of AACFB, in announcing the award.
“We thank the AACFB for this tremendous honor,” said Raymond Crosby. “We are proud to give back to our community and help make a positive difference in the lives of our neighbors.”
