Chevron’s Fuel Your School Program Returns to Jackson County

Chevron makes it easy to help generate funds for local teachers and students in collaboration with DonorsChoose.org

 Throughout the month of October, Chevron will offer its 2018 Fuel Your School program in Jackson County.

Chevron contributed $210,000 to local public school projects in October and November 2017 through the annual Fuel Your School program and an additional company contribution.

Chevron’s 2017 Fuel Your School program helped 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.

The program is an innovative collaboration with DonorsChoose.org, an online organization that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need, in Jackson County.

Fuel Your School is now in its seventh year in Jackson County and will generate up to $50,000 this fall, which will help fund classroom supplies and materials, including those focused on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), and hands-on activities to help connect real world experiences to classroom learning.

From Oct. 1 through Oct. 31, 2018, the Fuel Your School program will donate $1, up to a total of $50,000, to help fund eligible classroom projects when consumers purchase eight or more gallons of fuel at participating Chevron and Texaco stations.
