IRVING, Texas, December 21, 2021 — FleetPride, Inc. announced today that its Senior Director of Marketing, Victoria Roberts, recently presented a $30,000 donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® on behalf of the company, after successfully launching the company’s first ever GivingTuesday campaign. The funds donated will support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude: Finding cures. Saving children.®
“I am incredibly proud to be a part of this great organization and delighted with how quickly our employees and customers rallied around our first GivingTuesday effort,” said Roberts.
FleetPride kicked off its 2021 GivingTuesday efforts on Nov. 30 by encouraging customers and employees to make a purchase through the new FleetPride.com, with a percentage of online sales from that day benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Partnerships like this are fueling the $11.5 billion, six-year St. Jude strategic plan, which includes tripling its global investment to impact more of the 400,000 kids with cancer around the world each year.
Because of generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food, so they can focus on helping their child live.
“Working together to raise funds for this cause is something the entire team was honored to be a part of,” said Mike Duffy, CEO of FleetPride. “This time of year, we have so much to be thankful for. To give back as a team, with the support of our customers, is incredibly rewarding for us.”
As a leader in the industry, FleetPride is committed to strengthening its charitable efforts and has long-term plans to continue raising awareness and support for organizations like St. Jude.
