Residents and visitors of Southwest Florida are invited to a special "Fuel Up Night" at participating Circle K convenience stores Thursday, April 19, to kick off Circle K's annual Fueling Our Schools fundraising campaign.

The campaign invites customers to purchase fuel at a specially marked fuel pump, with Circle K donating one-cent of every gallon of fuel purchased to a participating local school (up to $2,000 per school). Schools will use the donations to address different areas of need, such as technology, resources, teacher incentives and more.

On special "Fuel Up Nights," customers have an opportunity to make an even greater impact. On these dates, 10 cents of each gallon of fuel sold at select Circle K stores will be donated to participating schools.

Community events will also be held at select stores.

To date, the Fueling Our Schools campaign has raised nearly $900,000 for local schools.

More than 350 Circle K stores across North America participated in the fundraising campaign in 2017.
