Nick Crounse, our director of strategic communications, recently joined the Capital Roots board of directors after volunteering on the organization's marketing committee for more than a decade.

Capital Roots works to reduce the impact of poor nutrition on public health in New York’s Capital Region by organizing community gardens, providing healthy food access, offering nutritional and horticultural education for all ages, and coordinating urban greening programs.

Bestpass has also been supporting Capital Roots for more than a year through the Toll Sponsorship Program. Through the program, Bestpass sponsors toll for Capital Roots fleet vehicles, including the Veggie Mobile®, a mobile market that travels to inner-city neighborhoods to deliver fresh, affordable and local produce.

Nick has been with Bestpass for nearly four years. He also serves on the board of directors for the Public Relations Society of America Capital Region NY chapter.
