Choptank Transport has been recognized by the Maryland Chamber of Commerce for their philanthropy. Choptank's charitable giving includes over a dozen organizations but the company's involvement with the March of Dimes and their Thanksgiving dinner donation which feeds over 250 people in need each year, was of particular note.
Every year, the Maryland business community contributes millions of dollars and countless volunteer hours to charitable organizations throughout the state. The Maryland Chamber of Commerce, together with the Baltimore Business Journal, will honor three area businesses or institutions with the Business Philanthropy Award at an event on November 9, 2016 at the Baltimore Marriot Waterfront Hotel.
The awards are presented as part of the Philanthropy Day luncheon held by the Maryland Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP). This is the 16th year that the Maryland Chamber of Commerce has honored the philanthropic efforts of area organizations.
The awards are divided into three categories:
Small (employers with 1-100 employees)
Medium (employers with 101-500 employees)
Large (employers with over 500 employees)
Choptank Transport falls into the medium-size employer category and will receive an award at the luncheon.
Those who provided outstanding support for local nonprofits, 501(c)(3)s and/or schools, between September 2015 and August 2016 were eligible for this year's award.
