BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 30, 2022--
Stay wild - it's good for your health! As a dynamic driver of statewide land conservation, Conservation Florida proudly announces Cross Country Healthcare as a corporate sponsor for its This Brand Saves Land philanthropy campaign.
This Brand Saves Land is a corporate cause-marketing partnership that provides a meaningful way for businesses to join a larger land conservation movement that directly impacts the quality of life for present and future generations of Floridians. Florida is one of the fastest growing states in the nation, with an estimated 1,000 newcomers each day, just as we lose 100,000 acres of natural and rural land to development each year. With this comes a greater demand for water and the development of rural and natural lands for urban use. How we manage our natural resources over the next 10 to 20 years – what we save and what we pave – will undoubtedly determine Florida’s conservation future and the future of Florida as a whole. Conservation Florida is on the front lines - and Cross Country Healthcare just joined us.
“As a part of our commitment to social and environmental responsibility, Cross Country is dedicated to the future of the communities we serve," said John A. Martins, President and CEO of Cross Country Healthcare. "These efforts reflect the values-based culture that our organization is built upon, and we are proud to be a corporate sponsor of This Brand Saves Land and partnering with Conservation Florida to ensure the growth of our home state.”
As a This Brand Saves Land corporate partner, Cross Country Healthcare will help conserve Florida's unique and irreplaceable wild places by donating to support Conservation Florida's mission to protect Florida’s natural and agricultural landscapes for future generations. Cross Country will help protect what keeps Florida Florida, including native plants and wildlife, freshwater, wildlife corridors, family farms and ranches, Florida’s economy, and nature-based recreation.
"The impact of Conservation Florida’s land-saving work is amplified and multiplied when we come together as Floridians to protect what is precious within our state," said President and CEO of Conservation Florida, Traci Deen.
Thanks to the support of partners like Cross Country Healthcare, Conservation Florida is leading the way in land and water conservation in Florida. Corporate partnerships are a driving force behind Conservation Florida's collaborative and strategic land protection efforts. We invite all Florida-based brands to link arms with us in saving land by raising critical funds that fuel our mission to conserve the unique character of Florida’s irreplaceable landscapes.
