Bruce Strazza Keeps Giving
Often the impact someone makes in giving is unknown, but the reach of consistent giving grows broader each year. Earth Data's construction inspector, Bruce Strazza, recently saw his consistent giving recognized as part of a broadening awareness of the need to help those struggling with substance abuse and addiction.
Bruce recently spoke as a recovery advocate during the presentation of the William Donald Schaefer Helping People Award to Talbot County Sheriff Joe Gamble and former Tidewater Rotary Club President Lucie Hughes. Comptroller Peter Franchot presented the award in recognition of the Talbot Goes Purple initiative, a program designed to raise awareness and reduce the risk of substance abuse.
In recognition of Bruce's care for those who need recovery from addiction, Comptroller Franchot presented him a commemorative medallion. The gold medallion bears the Maryland coat of arms and reads, Excellence—Serving & Sacrifice.
Bruce does not care for members of the recovery community in hoping for recognition. It is his personal experience that urges him to take part in Talbot Goes Purple and other initiatives to help end the opioid epidemic and help others in need. It is his selfless drive that encourages everyone at Earth Data to give back. He said it best to Earth Data president Mark Williams. "None of this is possible without your personal support and the support of my team members at Earth Data." Thank you, Bruce. Well done.
