Social Responsibility

Each year Paramount strives to ensure that there are positive social effects associated with the way we operate our business. We understand the importance of supporting our local community as the community’s success ultimately becomes Paramount’s successes. This past year Paramount undertook several charitable engagements to give back to the community and reinforce our core values and our mission.

Paramount proudly hosted it’s 16th staging of its Annual Waltham Park Community Christmas Treat and were also excited to host our very first tour for guests from the Top Hill Primary School. Students, teachers and family had an impactful and memorable experience In touring the newly minted lube plant and participating In Innovative chemistry experiments with our dedicated staff.

Throughout the year, Paramount’s staff came out in force to participate in various charity runs to include Digicel Foundation Imagine SK Run, Sagicore Sigma Corporate Run. and the Colour Me Happy 5k.

Colour Me Happy 5K Run

Proceeds in aid of building basic schools through the Kind Heart Foundation.

Kind Hearts is a branch of the Richard and Diana Stewart Foundation founded and operated by Richard and Diana’s six grandchildren, ages ranging from 19 to 29. Since its inception in 2010, Kind Hearts has partnered with Youth With a Mission to build homes in the rural areas surrounding Montego Bay and with Food for the Poor to build seven basic schools in 7 years. In 2018, the foundation made history as the first Food For the Poor donors to build back-to-back basic schools in Jamaica.

In each instance Kind Hearts Ltd. Has raised funds for the projects and assisted in the actual building process. The basic schools built in conjunction with Food for the Poor meet all the Ministry of Education construction and operation requirements.

This year, the GOAL is to build the EIGHTH school with Food for the Poor.
