NEWS RELEASE
CIRCLE K
*************************
Orillians are invited to a special Fuel Up Night at participating Circle K convenience stores on Thursday, April 19 to kick off Circle K’s annual Fueling Our Schools fundraising campaign.

The campaign invites customers to purchase fuel at a specially marked fuel pump, with Circle K donating .25 cents of every litre of fuel purchased to a participating local school (up to $2,000 per school). Schools will use their donations to address different areas of need, such as technology, resources, teacher incentives and more.

On special Fuel Up Nights, customers have an opportunity to make an even greater impact. On these dates, 2.5 cents of each litre of fuel sold at select Circle K stores will be donated to participating schools. Community events will also be held at select stores (contact your local Circle K store for event details).

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 Orillia, those that fuel up at the Circle K at 8023 Highway12 in Orillia will help raise money for Orchard Park Elementary School.
