HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Circle K on Hardy Street in Hattiesburg hosted a "Fuel Up Night" for Oak Grove High School Thursday.

The national chain pledged 10 cents from every gallon of gas sold from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m.

It's all part of the company's "Fueling Our Schools" fundraising campaign.

Free food and drinks were also on hand to those who stopped by.

"We are thrilled to know that people in our community are reaching out to support our schools and give back," said Oak Grove Lower Elementary teacher Renee McInarnay. "The students seem to know that as well as the teachers and everyone around us."

With this fundraising campaign, Circle K hopes to strengthen it's relationship with customers by fostering local school districts.
