Crosby Marketing Communications has celebrated its third Annual Inspiring Actions That Matter™ Day of Service. The Crosby team donated more than 360 staff hours in a single day and a total of $15,000 to three regionally based nonprofits.
Crosby temporarily closed its Annapolis, Md., headquarters and Washington, D.C. offices for the day as staff members volunteered at organizations in the Washington/Baltimore region. Projects included:
- Planting flower beds, fixing playground equipment and doing repairs at Chrysalis House, which provides addiction treatment and prevention services to women and their at-risk children;
- Interacting with residents and painting a mural of iconic D.C. monuments for SOME (So Others Might Eat) Senior Services, a home for formerly homeless seniors;
- Cleaning and adding plantings to a habitat restoration area with the Severn Riverkeeper, a group dedicated to protecting and restoring the Severn River.
“Inspiring Actions That Matter is in our organization’s DNA,” said Raymond Crosby, president and CEO of Crosby, “Our staff loves the opportunity to give back to the community and these nonprofits in an impactful and meaningful way.”
As one of the largest agencies in the Mid-Atlantic, Crosby, a Capitol Communicator sponsor, is ranked #3 on Washington Business Journal’s list of largest regional ad agencies, and #34 on O’Dwyer’s list of largest independent PR firms, #13 for Environmental PR and #9 for Healthcare PR.
