It’s World Teachers’ Day! Today and every day, teachers captivate young minds and inspire a passion for learning. Sadly, they also often spend hundreds of dollars from their own pockets to provide needed materials and supplies, especially in public schools. Whether you have school-aged children or not, you can help support San Diego Unified classrooms by participating in Chevron’s Fuel Your School Program.
Fuel Your School is an innovative collaboration with DonorsChoose.org to support teachers and help fund classroom materials in San Diego public schools. From Oct. 1 through Oct. 31, 2017, when consumers fill up with 8 or more gallons at a participating Chevron or Texaco station, $1 will be donated – up to $400,000! – to help fund eligible classroom projects for public schools within the city of San Diego.
All Chevron-branded and Texaco-branded stations in the city of San Diego are participating. Find your nearest station here: chevronwithtechron.com/findastation.aspx.
Parents, the Fuel Your School program can help make a big impact for San Diego Unified students. Tell everyone you know – friends, relatives, even the cashier at the grocery store – about fueling up in October, and be sure to visit FuelYourSchool.com for details.
San Diego Unified teachers, sign up and post your eligible classroom project request at DonorsChoose.org, an online charity that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need. Post classroom project requests on the DonorsChoose.org website, and when a project reaches its funding goal, DonorsChoose.org purchases the materials and ships them to the school. Be sure to let your students and their families know that you are participating!
In honor of World Teachers’ Day, Chevron would like to give one San Diego County teacher a $50 gas card. Teachers, enter for your chance to win by posting the name of your school and what you teach. Parents, post the name of your child’s teacher and school or what they teach. One entry will be randomly selected to win a $50 Chevron Gift Card!
This article and its giveaway is sponsored by Chevron.Chevron encourages public school teachers to post classroom projects for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education to help prepare students who may be interested in these types of advanced technical jobs. However all eligible classroom projects can participate in the program.
