Phillips Energy Raises $2,000 for The Samaritan Group on Giving Tuesday 2020
Phillips Energy is pleased to announce that thanks to the support of the community, it was able to raise $2,000 for The Samaritan Group as part of its Giving Tuesday annual fundraiser.
Giving Tuesday is a movement to encourage charities, families, businesses and individuals to follow the post-Thanksgiving shopping blitz with efforts to help local communities.
Phillips Energy made this year’s donation from a portion of retail sales on Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2020, including fuel sold at the gas station near Gloucester Point, to The Samaritan Group.
The Samaritan Group provides funds for Gloucester families seeking temporary financial assistance. The Samaritan Group is funded by fundraisers like this, United Way designations, churches, civic groups, memorials and private donors.
Phillips Energy has remained committed each year to the Giving Tuesday movement, Vice President Elizabeth McCormick said, because “it gives us an opportunity to take our collective giving spirit and spread it a little further by helping people and causes in our community who need it most.”
Over the years, Phillips Energy’s Giving Tuesday efforts have supported the Bread for Life Community Food Pantry, the Alzheimer’s Association, the Laurel Shelter, the Gloucester Housing Partnership, and the Gloucester Mathews Humane Society.
