Continuing a seven-year tradition, Crosby Marketing Communications recently held its annual Inspiring Actions That Matter™ Day of community service. Crosby’s 89 employees spent the day performing 712 hours of volunteer service and the company also donated $20,000 to four charities.
Crosby staff volunteered at these nonprofits in the Baltimore-Washington region:
- The Baltimore Station helps veterans who are overcoming obstacles to regain self-sufficiency through an innovative therapeutic residential and outpatient treatment program. Crosby staff prepared and served meals to veterans and helped with clean-up projects onsite.
- Rebuilding Together Anne Arundel County repairs homes for low-income residents and disabled veterans in need. Crosby team members (see photo) made repairs and renovations on two homes in Severn, Md.
- Watershed Stewards Academy develops citizen leaders to foster community change for clean waters. The Crosby team worked with the group to tackle several projects on the grounds of St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Annapolis, which is located in the Severn River Watershed. Work included building rain gardens and using native plants to reduce stormwater runoff.
- Small Miracles Cat & Dog Rescue in Ellicott City is a nonprofit, no-kill shelter dedicated to providing care and finding homes for cats and dogs. Crosby’s work at Small Miracles included cleaning cages, feeding animals and helping with maintenance projects.
To provide support beyond volunteer hours, Crosby made a $5,000 donation to each organization, for a total of $20,000. To date, Crosby has contributed 3,400 hours of employee time and $110,000 to charities and nonprofits as part of its Day of Service program.
