Global Partners has completed Shell’s 2021 Giving Pump Campaign, donating $1,800 to the Genesis Foundation for Children. Global has been a longtime supporter of The Genesis Foundation for Children, funding their programs and services that treat patients with rare diseases and genetic disorders, from conception and pregnancy through childhood and adulthood.
The Giving Pump campaign ran from Aug. 1-Sept. 30. Customers participated by filling up at the specially marked pump at any of the participating locations. A portion of the proceeds from each store were donated to the Genesis Foundation.
“We’re pleased to participate in Shell’s Giving Pump Campaign and donate to the Genesis Foundation for Children. The work of the Genesis Foundation is transformative for the families it serves. We’re thankful for their work, and pleased we can support them,” said Mark Consenza, senior vice president with Global Partners.
“Please accept our sincere gratitude for Global Partners’ generous donation to The Genesis Foundation for Children through its recent Shell Giving Pump Campaign. We are excited to apply this gift to help expand our patient base at The Feingold Center for Children at Boston Children’s Hospital. Our relationship with Global is a close one, for which we and the countless patients and families your organization has supported over many years are most thankful. Because of Global, many children and young adults facing rare diseases and genetic disorders are living full and happy lives,” said Matthew Hoffman, president of the Genesis Foundation for Children.
