Fuel Your School organizers Chevron Philippines Inc. and AmCham Foundation conducted an orientation with Northern Star Northeast Luzon (NEL) Caltex retailers to discuss the mechanics of the program and the expected inputs from Northern Star as a major partner. The orientation was held during the first quarter 2019 Northern Star NEL Zone Meeting in Tuguegarao, Cagayan on March 22, 2019.
The retailer partners enthusiastically committed their support for the program. Caltex will donate one (1) peso for every liter of fuel purchase in the 22 participating NEL Caltex stations from June 1 to July 31, 2019 to raise three million pesos to purchase modern school equipment for the 30 highest-need public high schools in the region. Northern Star is leveraging on its retail network to raise awareness and obtain financial contributions. It is also donating P1.5 million directly to help assure the success of the project. Last year, Northern Star tapped its Northwest Luzon network resulting in the most successful edition of Fuel Your School to date.
A similar orientation was held by the organizers for teachers from schools shortlisted as participants by DepEd in Northeast Luzon. The event was held in the DepEd office in Tuguegarao.
Fuel Your School will have its Media Launch on May 29 to announce the final beneficiaries selected by AmCham based on project proposals that have been submitted.
