FLOWERY BRANCH – BP and Clipper Petroleum are continuing their financial commitment to supporting East Hall Schools for the third year straight year via the Fueling Communities grant program.
During halftime of Friday’s football game between East Hall and Banks County, BP and Clipper Petroleum presented a total $17,500 to East Hall area Schools: $10,000 to East Hall High School; $5,000 to East Hall Middle School; and $2,500 to White Sulphur Elementary School.
The use of the funds will support a wide spectrum of programs and activities at each school, including student leadership programs, extracurricular clubs, academic teams, athletic teams, and technology upgrades to enhance learning. BP and Clipper have donated over $57,000 in the last 3 years to East Hall schools.
The BP Fueling Communities program provides grants to local organizations that are nominated by BP’s Branded Marketers like Clipper Petroleum to support the communities in which they do business. Fueling Communities gives back to local organizations that support health, education, youth, food and housing to spread charity and goodwill.
“The East Hall community has been so supportive of our stores in Rabbittown and Lula for so many years,“ said Ed Hong, Vice President of Retail Operations for Clipper Petroleum’s Circle M convenience stores. “We are happy we can give back to these schools during these challenging times. We hope that this money is able to touch every student in some way at these three schools.”
