Chevron contributed $210,000 to local public school projects in October and November through the annual Fuel Your School program and an additional company contribution.

Chevron’s 2017 Fuel Your School program generated $50,000 to help fund 70 classroom projects, including 33 focused on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), to help connect real world experiences to classroom learning for 8,803 students at 33 Jackson County public schools.

Through the Fuel Your School program, Chevron contributed $1 when consumers purchased eight or more gallons of fuel at participating Chevron and Texaco stations in Jackson County during the month of October, generating $50,000 to help fund eligible classroom projects at local public schools. Pascagoula Refinery employees were able to contribute an additional $160,000 through employee gift code redemptions on the DonorsChoose.org site.
