Airline High School will accept a $2,000 donation from Kangaroo Express Friday, Jan. 30 at 7:45 p.m. during halftime of the boys’ basketball game.

The donation was made possible through Kangaroo Express’ Valero Spirit Pump Program, which invites local school communities to purchase fuel at a specially marked Valero fuel pump. From September through November, Kangaroo Express donated one-cent of every gallon of fuel purchased at the “Spirit Pump” located at the 2651 Benton Road Kangaroo Express in Bossier City to Airline High School.

Kangaroo Express donated $2,000 to each of 43 schools across the Southeast, and the total donation of $86K will support a wide variety of student enrichment initiatives.

Airline High School will use the donation for its athletic sports programs.

Kangaroo Express guests are invited to participate in the Valero Spirit Pump program and support local schools again starting January 1, 2015. For the 2015 program, Kangaroo Express will donate up to $344K to a total of 172 schools.
