GenTent Safety Canopies®, LLC is a small business based in Nottingham, New Hampshire. In March, 2020 GenTent announced it has expanded their philanthropic and educational efforts by reaching an agreement with Direct Relief®, a federally recognized charitable organization. The agreement enables GenTent Safety Canopies to offer an ongoing campaign to support Direct Relief’s COVID-19 response and future efforts in hurricane preparedness and response.
As a safety focused and socially responsible small business, GenTent has committed to supporting Direct Relief and their campaigns in support of Coronavirus response.
“GenTent has always been about a singular message of safety, and often when we were responding to natural weather events, like hurricanes, we are left scrambling to figure out how we can help beyond just stocking an affected area, or a onetime donation.” said Brian Thomas, Marketing Manager for GenTent Safety Canopies. “Creating a support system with Direct Relief allows us not only to approach response efforts for devastating weather events, but also gives us further reach for education and support. One of our objectives for fiscal year 2020 was to find a clear path for our social responsibility efforts; supporting Direct Relief has supplied us with the means to help put those efforts in to direct and measurable results, making an immediate difference.”
GenTent will begin support of Direct Relief effective immediately launching a crowdfunding fundraiser for COVID-19 relief efforts. GenTent has committed to supporting Direct Relief with additional donations this year, as well as multiple percent of proceed campaigns geared toward support Direct Relief’s hurricane preparedness program and efforts.
