Campaign Features Ways for Drivers to Donate While Charging
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, July 28, 2021 – Volta Industries, Inc. (“Volta Charging”), an industry leader in commerce-centric electric vehicle (EV) charging networks, which has entered into a definitive agreement for a business combination with Tortoise Acquisition Corp. II (NYSE: SNPR), successfully worked with Sacramento Splash, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children understand and value our natural world through hands-on science education and outdoor exploration, in a recent media campaign.
The campaign, which occurred leading up to the recent Sacramento’s Big Day of Giving, ran on 192 Volta Charging charging station screens in the Sacramento-Stockton-Modesto, CA and San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose, CA markets. The campaign focused on the core components of Sacramento Splash’s mission by highlighting messages of spreading curiosity in the great outdoors, connecting more children with nature and inspiring the next generation of scientists. The campaign also prominently featured a QR code so drivers had the ability to make a donatation to Sacramento Splash while they charged. Ultimately, Sacramento Splash surpassed its fundraising goal. The partnership with Volta Charging won the The Best Business Partnership award given by the Sacramento Regional Foundation, which yielded Sacramento Splash a bonus $2,500 donation from the foundation.
“Having close mission alignment was critical to our campaign, which is why partnering with Volta Charging was so important to the success of our campaign,” said Mackenzie Wieser, CEO Sacramento Splash. “Our focus is to help children understand and value our natural world and the campaign connected that message to EV charging infrastructure, which shares the same goal of helping the climate and planet.”
