Thanks to the efforts of Willkomm’s Washington Avenue Mobil at 6840 Washington Avenue, Willkomm’s on Spring at 1215 N. Green Bay Road and Willkomm’s PETRO Mobil at 717 S. Sylvania Avenue; Case High, Gifford Elementary and Yorkville Elementary Schools have all been awarded a $500 Exxon Mobil Educational Alliance grant.
“As a Mobil retailer, I am proud to help our local schools and continue to build our strong ties to the Racine community,” said Jim Willkomm, Willkomm’s Co-Owner.
The Exxon Mobil Educational Alliance program is designed to provide Mobil retailers with an opportunity to invest in the future of their communities through educational grants to neighborhood schools. Exxon Mobil 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.
