The Tampa community is invited to a special “Fuel Up” Night at participating Circle K convenience stores on Friday, October 21 from 4 – 8 p.m. to kick off Circle K’s inaugural “Fueling Our Schools” fundraising campaign. Starting October 21, one cent of each gallon of fuel sold at specially marked Circle K fuel pumps will be donated to a participating school (up to $2,000 per year).
Each quarter, schools will use their donation to address a different area of need, such as technology, resources, teacher incentives and more. The campaign empowers residents to make a meaningful contribution to local schools by simply fueling up at their neighborhood Circle K store.
On special Fuel Up Nights, residents have an opportunity to make an even greater impact. During these nights, 10 cents of each gallon of fuel sold at select Circle K stores will be donated to a participating school.
Participating Circle K convenience stores can be found across the country. In Florida, participating locations are in communities throughout the following counties:
Alachua, Bradford, Brevard, Broward, Charlotte, Citrus, Clay, Duval, Escambia, Flagler, Gilchrist, Hernando, Highlands, Hillsborough, Lake, Lee, Manatee, Marion, Monroe, Nassau, Orange, Osceola, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, Putnam, Santa Rosa, Seminole, St. Johns, St. Lucie, Sumter, Volusia and Wakulla.
