Fueling the Community Program helps Parker’s Convenience Stores give back.
Parker’s recently donated $3,500 to Toombs County Public Schools and $2,000 to Vidalia City Schools through the company’s popular Fueling the Community program, which donates a portion of the sale of every gallon of gas on the first Wednesday of each month to area schools.
Check donations took place at special ceremonies at Lyons Primary School, Lyons Upper Elementary School, Toombs Central Elementary and Sally D. Meadows Elementary School.
Jeff Bush, director of operations at Parker’s, presented the checks to public school administrators, students and teachers, who accepted the donations on behalf of the local school systems. These gifts are part of more than $100,000 Parker’s donates to local public and private schools each year.
“We understand the value education brings to the community in Toombs County,” said Bush. “On behalf of everyone at Parker’s, we are delighted to support teachers at Toombs County Schools and Vidalia City Schools. We are deeply grateful for their commitment to educating the next generation.”
