Our pink truck is designed to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research and to provide financial assistance for testing for those in need. Wilson Oil & Propane donates 1¢ per gallon for each propane delivery this truck makes to the Susan G. Komen Philadelphia Foundation.
As science continues to advance treatments and work toward the cure, Komen Philadelphia’s Community Grants Program focuses on saving lives today from this horrible disease, while also establishing foundations that better the odds for future generations to survive breast cancer. The majority (75%) of our funds is used to advance Komen Philadelphia outreach and our Community Grants Program in our local service area. The remainder is used to empower science to find the cures for ALL women and men, of the present and future.
Breast cancer is the leading cause of death for women age 35 to 50. Early detection is the key to survival. The O’Connell family and staff at Wilson Oil & Propane support the communities we serve. Over the past five years we have donated $25,000 and are committed to donating $5,000 per year.
