Parker's Convenience Stores Donate $12,000 to Effingham County Schools

October 7, 2020

The Effingham County School District was excited to receive a $12,000 donation from Parker's Convenience Stores today! We are thankful for everyone who participated in One Cent Wednesdays - by choosing our schools, you helped contribute to this sizable donation from Parker’s Fueling the Community program. And thank you, Parker's, for this generous donation and for supporting local schools!

As part of their Fueling the Community program, Parker’s will donate 1¢ for every gallon of gas sold on the first Wednesday of every month. To participate, pay with Parker's PumpPal Debit when you fuel up! Parents and other supporters of our school can become PumpPal Debit members by downloading the Parker's app and selecting a school to receive the donation. You can also pick up a Parker's Rewards card from any Parker's location. You can call Parker's at (912) 231-1001 or visit for help with this worthwhile project!
