Once again Red-Kap has partnered with the ExxonMobil Education Alliance Program. This program will donate $2 million throughout the country by allowing Mobil and Exxon gas stations to nominate schools in their neighborhoods to receive $500 grants to be used for math and science curriculums. Red-Kap has participated in this program for several years.
This year $500 grants were secured for nine different schools in our marketing area. Red-Kap has gone a step further by adding $100 to each of the grants so that each school received $600 for a total of $5400. “Handing out these checks is one my favorite parts of my job.” says Jon Kaplan.
Red-Kap also raised $2,500 in September by donating $1 for every car that was washed in their 3 carwashes to Rotterdam Junction flood victims. Other large contributions this year included Ellis Hospital and the Schenectady Boys and Girls Club.
Matt attained both his undergraduate degree and MBA from the University of Memphis. He is a Gulf War veteran having served in the US ARMY. Prior to coming to Red-Kap, Matt’s experience includes Retail Management with AMOCO and BP, Lubricant experience with Castrol and EXXON, he has managed and created multi-branded distributorships and has been particularly successful in managing fuel which will certainly help Red-Kap provide new value to its customers in the year to come.
