SPRINGFIELD, Mo – Kum & Go presented a check Thursday afternoon to the Foundation for Springfield Public Schools.
The check was from money raised from their Gallons for Growth fundraiser. The check presented was for $7,030.13. During the 24-hour fundraiser, Kum & Go contributed three cents for every gallon of gas pumped at Springfield Kum & Go stores, plus gave $5 for each new &Reward membership activated to the Foundation.
This is the ninth year Kum & Go has held a fundraiser for the Foundation for Springfield Public Schools. The money goes towards the Foundation for Springfield Public Schools Back to School grant program.
“Kum & Go’s contribution is a fantastic kick-off for our Back to School grant program fundraising effort,” said Executive Director for the Foundation for SPS Natalie Murdock. “We truly appreciate our partners at Kum & Go and their support of our SPS students and teachers! Our tremendous thanks to Kum & Go for their commitment to our community and education.”
