Once again Red-Kap has partnered with the ExxonMobil Education Alliance Program.
This program will donate $2 million throughout the country by allowing Mobil and Exxon gas stations to nominate schools in their neighborhoods to receive $500 grants to be used for math and science curriculums. Red-Kap has participated in this program for several years.
This year $500 grants were secured for nine different schools in our marketing area. Red-Kap has gone a step further by adding $100 to each of the grants so that each school received $600 for a total of $5400. “Handing out these checks is one of the favorite parts of my job.” says Jon Kaplan.
Red-Kap also raised $2,500 in September by donating $1 for every car that was washed in their 3 carwashes to Rotterdam Junction flood victims. Other large contributions this year included Ellis Hospital and the Schenectady Boys and Girls Club.
