pOpshelf Celebrates First Birthday with The Confetti Foundation
Nov 05, 2021
“During the past year, we have been thrilled to open new stores and bring the fun, joyful and differentiated shopping experience to customers, and we are humbled by the warm welcome we have received in each community we serve,” said Matt Frame, pOpshelf’s director of store operations. “We look forward to continuing our meaningful partnership with The Confetti Foundation, helping celebrate children’s birthdays, including a special celebration in conjunction with our anniversary.”
For pOpshelf’s first birthday, the Company and The Confetti Foundation partnered with Tri Star Children’s Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee to create a big birthday surprise for Jhocelyn V. of Nashville. She celebrated her eighth birthday at the hospital and was surprised with lots of gifts and party swag including an iPad, art supplies, balloons, streamers and more, bringing smiles to her and her mother on Jhocelyn’s birthday.
pOpshelf’s partnership with The Confetti Foundation reflects the company’s commitment to serving communities it calls home. Since last fall, pOpshelf and The Confetti Foundation’s partnership has provided more than 1,700 children’s birthday parties to children who spend their birthday in a hospital, pediatric oncology clinic or hospice facility.
“Joy and delight are at the heart of the pOpshelf experience. What better way to bring joy and special memories to others than birthday celebrations,” said Denine Torr, vice president of corporate social responsibility at Dollar General. “We are proud to partner with The Confetti Foundation to provide birthday parties to children in hospitals, pediatric oncology clinics or hospice facilities. We hope these celebrations bring a welcome distraction, positive memories and normalcy during a difficult time.”
