S-OIL announced on May 13 that it has donated 280 million won to the Korea National Council for Social Welfare through the "S/S Sharing N Campaign."

The campaign is a community-based corporate social responsibility (CSR) program aimed at sharing warmth with needy neighbors in welfare facilities close to service stations (S/Ss), which have good knowledge of communities around them.

Employees of around 250 S-OIL S/Ss and marketing officials of S-OIL participate in the campaign every year. They offer donations to local welfare facilities for children, the disabled and seniors. They also regularly clean up the facilities, distribute food and join cultural activities together. To this end, S-OIL launched an S-OIL S/S Service Corps at each sales office across the nation to regularly conduct volunteer activities with S/Ss.

S-OIL CEO Hussain Al-Qahtani said, "COVID-19 is taking everyone to a road unknown, but it shall pass. It’s more important to look after the needy neighbors in difficult times like this and share with others, which is one of the core values of S-OIL."

S-OIL launched the S/S Sharing N Campaign with the Ministry of Health & Welfare and the KNCSW in 2011 in order to implement community-based CSR programs with local S/Ss. The refiner donated a total of 3.5 billion won over the past nine years by matching 2,580 S/Ss and welfare facilities across the nation.
