Palm City, FL, August 26, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Sol, Inc., the world leader in solar LED outdoor lighting donated two Greenway™ solar LED pathway lighting systems to the Boys & Girls Club of Martin County. The donation was recently featured in the Scripps Treasure Coast ‘Luminaries’ and the Treasure Coast Business Journal.
Mat Churchey, Director of Operations for the Boys and Girls Club of Martin County added, “The Boys and Girls Club of Martin County are very fortunate to have been chosen by Sol to receive our new solar lighting. The new lights will not only enhance the beauty and safety of our Palm City Club but also gives us a great tool in teaching our members the importance of thinking green and energy conservation. We are fortunate to have a company such as Sol that is willing to unselfishly give of itself in making our community a better place to live.”
Sol’s solar light donation program allows employees to identify local organizations that will benefit from Sol’s efficient LED lighting. Once a charity has been identified, a team of volunteers participate in assembling the solar lighting systems and installing them at the charity’s facilities during after-work hours. Charities are chosen based on several criteria including that the organization demonstrate a need for solar lighting, is registered as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and is allowed to install solar lighting on their premises. Sol will be funding an additional five charities over the next 6-8 months.
“Our entire staff supports this worthwhile project that gives us a chance to give back to our community, especially during these tough economic times,” said Michael Sonnenfeldt, chairman of Sol, Inc. “We are providing an environmentally friendly lighting system that improves the safety and comfort of local organizations that are making a difference in the lives of others.”
The donation to the Boys and Girls Club is part of Sol’s ongoing philanthropic effort in making solar lighting equipment donations to those in need. Along with providing solar lighting to Florida based charities, Sol donates to disaster relief efforts. Past recipients include: Hurricane Katrina Recovery Lighting (2005), Hurricane Rita Recovery Lighting (2005), Peruvian Earthquake Relief (2008), Port St. Lucie Florida Bus Shelters (2008), and Chapman, Kansas Tornado Redevelopment Lighting (2009).
