Press Release
Wednesday, January 09, 2013

Crowley Maritime Corp donates check & personnel will help in field enhancements to benefit more than 500 local children and adults.

Children attending YMCA summer camps and playing on sports teams in the Arlington area will soon benefit from Fort Caroline field enhancements following a recent donation from Jacksonville-based Crowley Maritime Corp . A check will be presented by Crowley’s David Holden, director, human resources, to the YMCA during a ceremony scheduled for Sat., Jan. 12, at 10:00 a.m. on the field. Shortly thereafter, Crowley employees and other community volunteers will work together to lay new grass seed, install fencing, add an irrigation system and perform other tasks to improve the field’s safety and function.

The upgrades will allow more than 500 children each year to participate in outside YMCA activities, including nearly 225 children who attend summer camp programs, 60 who attend after-school care and 220 who participate in team sports, such as flag football and soccer. The field will also serve adult sports programs, including lacrosse, kickball and rugby.
The YMCA’s Fort Caroline field is a 31,050 square-foot property located at 8301 Fort Caroline Road.

"Crowley takes pride in this opportunity to make a difference in the Jacksonville community and for its children," said Holden. "Our employees have served the local area through a variety of philanthropic organizations, including volunteering for the Safe Harbor Maritime Academy, Second Harvest Food Bank, Heart for Children, Northeast Florida Hospice and so many more. This spirit of giving back has made a tremendous impact in Northeast Florida and beyond.”
