SOL has made financial donations of $4,347.00 and $8,694.00 to the St Vincent and the Grenadines Red Cross (SVGRC) and World Paediatric Project (WPP) respectively.
Parkland Fuels Inc. of Canada is the majority shareholder of SOL, and as part of Parkland’s social Investment Programme called “Parkland Pledge” the donations were made to both charities, a release from SOL states.
Each employee of SOL can pledge money to be donated to selected charities. Employees can pledge all their allocation to any one charity or apportion it as they deem fit to both charities.
