Global Partners Dedicated to Ending Child Abuse

share:

Over the past three years, Global Partners has been a strong advocate and supporter of the Children’s Trust. For two months, each fall, the company collects funds to help end child abuse and neglect by putting out coin canisters near the checkout area in each of their stores and inviting customers to donate the spare change in their pockets.

All those coins have added up to tens of thousands of dollars in each of the last three years. Thanks to the generous support of Global Partners, the Slifka Family, and their customers, this partnership has generated nearly $275,000, ensuring more children will grow up safe and healthy. Thank you, Global Partners, for raising more awareness and resources for the Commonwealth’s children and families.

"We are so thankful for the continued support and partnership of Global Partners, the Slifka family, and the incredible response from their customers in helping to stop child abuse across Massachusetts," said Suzin Bartley, Executive Director of the Children’s Trust. "This support is critical to help make a difference in the lives of children and families and bring the important issue of child abuse to light."
