Every year, teachers spend hundreds of dollars out of pocket on classroom materials. Chevron is returning this fall with its Fuel Your School program, which has purchased more than $569,788 in supplies for Alaska schools since 2013.
In October, Anchorage can help fund these projects by filling up at Chevron stations. For each fill-up of eight gallons or more, Chevron donates $1 to fund projects posted by Anchorage teachers to DonorsChoose.org, up to $100,000.
New this year are Student-led Projects and Student Life Essentials Projects, which provide warm clothing, food and more for underserved students.
