Windsor Elementary School has received a $750 grant from the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance program to help fund activities for Windsor students.  A portion of this grant will support the purchase of playground supplies to be used by all Windsor Elementary students at recess.  These supplies will compliment the $47,000 worth of new playground structures Windsor’s Parent Teacher Club has been installing for the past few years and will help buy other supplies as needs arise.  Harry Singh, owner of Windsor Travel Plaza, worked with Mr. Finke, principal at Windsor Elementary, to secure the grant, which is one of 2,400 available to schools across the country served by Exxon or Mobil stations.  The grants were made possible by funding from the ExxonMobil Corporation.

“Windsor Elementary School works hard to make learning interesting and fun,” said Mr. Singh.  “As a Mobil retailer, I am proud to help young people of the DeForest/Windsor Community.”

The ExxonMobil Educational Alliance program is designed to provide Exxon and Mobil retailers with an opportunity to invest in the future of their communities through educational grants to neighborhood schools.  ExxonMobil 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.

Windsor Travel Plaza and Mr. Singh met stringent eligibility criteria before applying for and being awarded this grant, including having a commitment to provide a superior buying experience for customers.

“The students and staff at Windsor Elementary greatly appreciates the support of Mr. Singh and ExxonMobil for their generosity,” said principal Mike Finke.
