High schools get a portion of profits from designated gas pumps at Riiser gas stations.
Riiser Energy has donated close to $41,000 to 11 high school through the use of its “Pride Pumps,” according to a report by Fox News WZAW.
Pride Pumps, debuted in 2015. The pumps feature a logo of the high schools they benefit and two-cents per gallon of gas bought at the pump are donated to the high school.
Todd Kopplin, Riiser vice president of retail noted many of the locations only had a Pride Pump set up for part of 2016. In 2017, donation totals are expected to be even higher.
Schools that have a Pride Pump include Wausau East, Wausau West, D.C. Everest, Wausau Newman, Coleman High School, Gillet High School, Merrill High School, Mosinee High School, Edgar High School, and Marathon High School, and Northland Lutheran High School.
The total contribution will depend upon the gallons sold through the Pride Pump, but it is anticipated to result in an annual donation to these districts of between $4,000 and $7,000, Fox News WZAW reported.
