Global has always supported community events and charitable organizations, but as the company grew and expanded, we wanted to do more than just celebrate our growth and success with our employees and their families. We wanted to make a difference.
So in 2014, Global Facility Management & Construction launched “Global Gives Back,” to further our ideals, commitment to the community and to foster a culture of giving.
“The core of our business is to help people by improving their environment, so it’s a natural extension for us to make life better for people, not just by what we do in the office each day, but what we can do in our communities as well,” says CEO Lauryn Blank.
When Sean and Lauryn met the founder of J.A.C.K, they knew it was the right organization for Global Gives Back.
J.A.C.K., Join A Cause for Kids, is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization whose mission is to help families in financial distress as the result of an ongoing battle with pediatric cancer. At the age of four, Jack Perlungher was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. The strength and courage that Jack displayed during his 13 month battle was an inspiration to many. Since so many people came together to support Jack and his family, the Perlungher family felt they should give other families support in their time of need. Join A Cause for Kids enables them to do that in Jack’s memory.
Over the years, Global Gives Back has raised funds for Autism Awareness, Holiday Food Drives, and disaster relief efforts. In 2015, Global Gives Back has already raised over $1000 for Light It Up Blue, and will continue its fundraising efforts throughout the year.
