GRENLEC’s Community Partnership initiative continues to touch lives as the company has distributed $83,000 to Care Institutions and Programme for Adolescent Mothers (PAM).
The island’s sole electricity company handed over cheques to the recipients during a brief ceremony held last week Thursday at its Dusty Highway office.
Senior Manager at GRENLEC, Jeffrey Neptune said the company recognises the sacrifices that the various institutions have made and is proud to have contributed over the years towards the development of the social fabric of Grenada.
“As one of the leading corporate citizens, GRENLEC is truly committed to giving back to the citizens of Grenada. GRENLEC has given tremendous support over the years and continues to support social development”, he said.
“Our commitment to the citizens of Grenada goes far beyond that of
social development but stems into the field of educational development and we hope that the contributions that you receive today from GRENLEC will go a long way in terms of augmenting the social and educational programme of your various institutions,” he added.

We believe that given this opportunity, (we) will help them in the future, giving them a chance at life and the elderly – they would’ve made their contributions already – so we giving back to them and we want to thank GRENLEC for helping us to do that,’ she said.
