Parker’s donated $20,000 to Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools as part of the company’s Fueling the Community charitable initiative Thursday. Godley Station School Principal John K. King accepted the donation on behalf of Board of Education at a ceremony at the 48th Parker’s location, which recently opened on Benton Boulevard.
“Every time we get funding from Parker’s, it goes right back to help our students,” King said. “This donation provides additional funding for technology that gets our kids ready for 21st-century skills that will help them succeed.”
Parker’s donates a portion of every gallon of gas sold on the first Wednesday of each month to area schools through the Fueling the Community program. PumpPal club members can select which school will receive the proceeds from their Fueling the Community gas purchase.
“It’s exciting to give back to the community,” said President and CEO Greg Parker. “At Parker’s, we believe that education has the power to transform lives and to uplift communities. We are grateful for the Chatham County teachers who are educating the next generation of students and preparing them for future success.”
Parker’s operates 48 convenience stores in Georgia and South Carolina.
