Chevron believes that effective education, including science, technology, engineering and math, can foster bright young talent for the future workforce and healthy economic growth of our communities, and the country.
Through a shared vision—the Fuel Your School initiative—Chevron is working with DonorsChoose.org to organize funding for eligible projects in public schools across country. In this way, Chevron can help teachers and students get the supplies they need for their classrooms. To date, Chevron’s Fuel Your School has contributed more than $800,000 to Hawaii’s public schools. In 2014 alone, 22,189 students benefitted; 247 teachers participated; and 121 public schools were served statewide.
Hastings & Pleadwell was approached by Edelman to manage community outreach, traditional and social media relations, and events for Chevron’s Fuel Your School campaign in Hawaii. Using a grassroots approach, H&P works closely with Chevron Hawaii and Donors Choose teams to help Hawaii’s classrooms receive project supplies.
