BOSTON — CITGO Petroleum Corp. is teaming up with the Boston Red Sox in hopes of hitting a home run for charity.
Now through October, CITGO has teamed up with its local New England partners, SEI Fuels, H.A. Mapes, Global Partners and Tradewinds, to install Red Sox-branded pumps at 23 locations in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Maine in what is called the Spirit Pump campaign.
When customers visit these unique gas pumps, a portion of their purchase will be donated to the Red Sox Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that raises funds via special events, corporate sponsorships and grants. These funds go to the Red Sox Scholars Program, the Red Sox Foundation’s RBI and Rookie League, the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base Program, The Dimock Center and The Jimmy Fund.
Customers can also look for “Fuel Change” donation boxes to receive a unique Red Sox Foundation baseball mobile in-store at the register by donating $1 or $5 to support the organization.
“We look forward to contributing to the fantastic educational and community service programs of the Red Sox Foundation that serve children and families across New England,” said Alan Flagg, CITGO assistant vice president of supply and marketing. “The Red Sox Foundation Spirit Pump initiative is just one way that CITGO and its local Marketers and Retailers fuel good for others, not only in New England communities, but in cities throughout the 29 states in which CITGO operates.”
