Donors Choose

More than a dozen local classrooms are among hundreds across Harris County that cashed in on a special, one-month initiative funded by Chevron to help fund student projects inside public schools.

During the month of October, Chevron donated $1 to the Fuel Your School program in partnership with the online charity for every eight gallons of gasoline bought at either a Chevron or a Texaco gasoline station in Harris County. Up to $1 million in funds were available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Chevron has also underwritten several Spring Branch ISD science-related initiatives this year, including the JASON Project and a recent district visit by hurricane researcher Shirley Murillo, with Miami-based NOAA.
Spring Branch ISD teachers who received funds included Theresa Trevino of Rummel Creek Elementary. She used her funds to develop a hatching project involving ducks.
Other SBISD funded projects included requests reported from the following schools: Hollibrook, Hunters Creek, Rummel Creek, Spring Branch, Spring Shadows and Sherwood elementary schools; Spring Forest and Landrum middle schools; and Northbrook and Stratford high schools.
Individuals who wish to donate directly to benefit teacher projects like these can continue to do so at Project lists are available there to make direct donations.
