Each year, Parker’s convenience stores donates more than $100,000 to area schools through the Fueling the Community program.
Parker’s recently made a $5,000 Fueling the Community donation to the Liberty County School System in a special ceremony held at the Liberty County Pre-K Center.
The company’s popular Fueling the Community program donates a portion of the sale of every gallon of gas on the first Wednesday of each month to area schools.
Jeff Bush, director of operations for Savannah, Ga.-based Parker’s, presented the check to public school administrators, students and teachers, who accepted the donation on behalf of the Liberty County School System. Every year, Parker’s donates more than $100,000 to area public and private schools through the Fueling the Community Program.
“We are deeply honored to support educators in Liberty County,” said Bush. “Giving back to the community is part of the Parker’s DNA. We believe that education has the power to transform lives and to uplift communities.”
