The Circle K convenience store chain has come up with a terrific promotional campaign that is a great example of a company meeting its responsibility to make a positive contribution to the communities in which it does business.
More than 360 stores in the U.S. and Canada are participating in the campaign, which contributes one cent of every gallon of fuel sold at specially marked pumps to participating schools. The goal is to raise more than $700,000, with up to $2,000 contributed to individual schools.
The campaign will be kicked off Nov. 9, Nov. 16 or Dec. 7, depending on region, with 10-cent per gallon contributions for gas sold at those special pumps.
"Circle K is committed to serving the neighborhoods where we work and live," said Jeff Burrell, vice president of global fuels. "This innovative fundraising program continues to expand every year, impacting and empowering even more students and schools along the way."
