A joint effort between Chevron and My Class Needs – a Canadian-based not-for-profit group – has benefited more than 5,300 students throughout Surrey.
The effort, Fuel My School, recently wrapped up, and successfully raised $565,000 to fund 448 classroom projects across the Lower Mainland, according to a news release.
The school programs aimed to bring “real world experiences” to the classroom, with a focus on science, technology, engineering and math.
“This program is so rewarding to be a part of,” said Adrien Byrne, policy, government and public affairs representative for Chevron.
“We are able to help foster learning and development for students in new and exciting ways.”
