Manila, Philippines, April 17, 2018 — Caltex Fuel Your School, the multi-awarded fuel-to-donate program that has helped thousands of teachers and millions of students in public high schools, is now going to the areas of La Union, Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Norte, Abra, Benguet and Mt. Province.
This was announced on April 5, 2018 during the MOA signing ceremony between partners Chevron Philippines Inc. (CPI), Northern Star Energy Corporation (Northern Star), and American Chamber Foundation Philippines (ACF).
“By supporting highest-need public high schools, Caltex contributes to honing competitive graduates who will positively impact our economy. Supporting education and improving learning of students inspires us to grow bigger as a business.” said Louie Zhang, Country Chairman of Chevron Philippines Inc.
Caltex Fuel Your School aims to raise three million pesos for highest-need public high schools in the region selected by the Department of Education. ACF will screen the projects and purchase equipment based on the schools’ project proposals. Northern Star is leveraging their 26 stations in the region and also donating P1.5 million directly to the project.
“We are very excited about Caltex Fuel Your School. We value education as a company and believe that a well-educated community will drive growth that will help sustain the local economy. Our retailers will be glad to work with their community to help our public high schools,” stated Juan Miguel Delgado, Chief Operating Officer of Northern Star Energy Corporation.
Caltex will donate one (1) peso for every liter of fuel purchase in the 26 participating Caltex stations in the Northwest Luzon from June 1 to July 31, 2018. This is the fourth edition of Caltex Fuel Your School, after successful runs in Metro Manila, Davao, and Bicol where a total of P11 million pesos was raised and used to buy digital microscopes, multi-media projectors, laptops, calculators, telescopes, laboratory equipment and other learning equipment.
