On Wednesday, October 23rd, Domino C-Stores presented Grove School with a donation of $6,311. This is the company’s first donation for the second year of their Fueling the Classroom Program, an ongoing program to benefit all communities within the Domino C-Stores service area.

“On behalf of Grove teachers, administration, students, and parents we want to thank Domino C-Stores for their generous donation,” said Whitney Longacre, the teacher that nominated Grove School for Fueling the Classroom. “We will be using the funds for a fun, innovative way to get our students reading in and out of the classroom! This gift will be used to purchase a book vending machine that will encourage and reward positive choices and hard work while creating a love for reading. Thank you Domino C-Stores for giving back to local schools!”

“We appreciate all of the hard work from the teachers, administrators, and students at Grove,” added Jennifer Brannon, the manager at Domino #127 in Shawnee. “It’s really exciting to be able to give back and support them in their efforts.”

As part of Fueling the Classroom, Domino C-Stores is donating two cents per gallon of fuel purchased with Domino Rewards or Shell Fuel Rewards every day. Domino has donated over $46,000 to local schools since the start of the program in October 2018.

A new school will be selected to receive a donation each month. Schools can be nominated on the company’s website at dominocstores.com/fuelingclass. Voting then takes place on social media.

You can now vote on the recipient of the October donation on the Domino C-Stores Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
