Circle K in Tucson hosting 'Fueling Our Schools' night

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Tucson community is invited to support local schools - simply by fueling up at their neighborhood Circle K.

Circle K's Fueling Our School campaign encourages the community to use specially-marked fuel pumps to raise money for local schools. Year-round, one cent of every gallon of fuel sold on these special pumps helps support vital classroom needs (up to $2,000 per school). 

On Thursday, April 19, the community can make an even greater impact. During this time, 10 cents of every gallon of fuel purchased at participating Circle K stores will be donated.

Schools can use their donations to address different areas of need, such as technology, resources, teacher incentives and more.

To date, the Fueling Our Schools campaign has raised nearly $900,000 for local schools.

More than 350 Circle K stores across North America participated in the fundraising campaign in 2017. In southern Arizona participating locations include:
