The Crosby Group, a global manufacturer of rigging, lifting and material handling hardware, announced its Rigging for the Troops program for the third quarter of 2021. The Crosby Group will donate a portion of its U.S. sales to the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation, up to $25,000. The Crosby Group manufactures a range of product solutions from brands that include Crosby, Gunnebo Industries, Crosby Straightpoint, Crosby BlokCam, Speedbinders, and McKissick.
Fallen Patriots provides college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty. After government programs, the average shortfall in college funding is $25,000.
Melissa King Ruths, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management at The Crosby Group, said: “Together, with our distributors and end users, we are proud to support such an important cause and help fulfill the educational funding requirements of young people who have been affected by military casualties.”
In addition to raising funds, The Crosby Group is launching a weekly contest to help raise awareness of the initiative on social media. Visit riggingforthetroops.com for more information.
