Townsend Elementary School has receives a $500 grant

Townsend Elementary School has received a $500 grant from the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance program to support the school’s reading program. Rogers Petroleum, Inc. and Townsend Shopping Center worked with school officials to secure the grant which is one of 4,000 available to schools across the country served by Exxon or Mobil stations. The grants were made possible by funding from the Exxon Mobile Corporation.

“Townsend Elementary School works hard to make learning interesting and fun,” said Jerry Sullivan (owner/operator of Townsend Shopping Center). “As an Exxon retailer, I am proud to help the young people of Townsend.”

The ExxonMobile Educational Alliance program is designed to provide Exxon and Mobil retailers with an opportunity to invest in the future of their communities through educational grants to neighborhood schools. ExxonMobile believes that, as members of the community, local retailers are best qualified to work with local educators to help identify schools and programs most in need of support.

Townsend Shopping Center met stringent eligibility criteria before applying for and being awarded this grant, including having a commitment to provide a superior buying experience for customers.
