AmeriGas continued one of its community Give-Back-Locally programs, “School Days,” this summer, recently dishing out money for school supplies to a Virginia elementary school, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported this week.

All participants have to do is save their AmeriGas propane receipts and deposit them in their school’s School Days receipt box. Then, AmeriGas will pay 2¢ for every gallon collected up to $2,000 per year. The funds go toward supplementing teachers’ supplies such as computers, books, art materials, and sports and band equipment. Funds could even be used for educational field trips. Program administrators said five schools across the country received the maximum benefit last year.

Beaverdam Elementary is the latest school to take advantage of the program, receiving $769.58 from the company this week.
