For Immediate Release
Lancaster, Pa. – Barley Snyder is proud to announce that Bethesda Mission of Harrisburg has named attorney Michael J. Crocenzi as its “Volunteer of the Year” for 2017.
Crocenzi, who joined Barley Snyder in July, has been a volunteer at the mission for 10 years and was on the organization’s board of directors from 2007 to 2010. He helps with pro bono legal advice for Bethesda Mission, mostly on employment matters and risk management. He also volunteers by helping serve meals at the mission.
Crocenzi is a member of the firm’s Employment Law and Litigation practice groups. He also works in workers’ compensation, employment litigation and labor law. In addition to his work with Bethesda Mission, he’s been a member of the Fairview Township Board of Supervisors in York County and is the president of the Red Land High School Football Boosters.
“Bethesda Mission has always been something that’s been close to my heart, and I strongly support its mission and values,” Crocenzi said. “The work the mission does in Harrisburg is so desperately needed to keep families together, to help the quality of life in the Capital Region and to share the good news and love of Jesus Christ. No one knows when they’ll need an organization like Bethesda Mission, but they’re glad it’s there when they do need it. I am very humbled to receive such a high honor from this wonderful, hard-working community organization.”
