By BBN Staff: Tropic Air, as part of its ongoing #TropicGivesBack charitable campaign, donated over $1,300 split between the San Pedro Roman Catholic School and the San Pedro Tourist Guide Association.
The donations benefited the school’s marching band and an environmental program for the association. Two checks for $692 each were presented to Roxani Kay and Philip Leslie, representing the school and association respectively.
It was the largest fund raiser of the year, the company said.
“Tropic welcomed the opportunity to help these two organizations. We have a keen appreciation of the important roles that both music and environmental education play in our island community, and a long-standing commitment to corporate social responsibility,” said John Greif III, Tropic Air’s president. “Through music and respect for the environment, we hope to inspire future generations to pursue their dreams.”
“Like many of our community initiatives, the inspiration for our support comes from our staff who are volunteering in and contributing to their communities”, said Steve Schulte, Tropic Air CEO. “This is a wonderful opportunity for our team members in San Pedro to give back to local organizations and the members of the community they serve.”
