Drendel's Corner Mobil donates educational grant to Leggee Elementary

HUNTLEY - In his ongoing commitment to the Huntley community and in his effort to promote a better education for today's youth, James Drendel of Drendel's Corner Mobil (located at 13280 S. Rt. 47, Huntley) donated a $750.00 grant through the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance program to Leggee Elementary in support of the school's math and science programs.

Drendel worked with school officials to secure this grant, which is one of 2,400 available to schools nationwide that are served by Exxon or Mobil stations.

"Principal Scott Iddings works hard to make learning interesting and fun," Drendel said. "As a longstanding member of the Huntley community and a Mobil retailer, I am proud to help the young people of Huntley succeed and to help contribute to the resources necessary for their road to tomorrow."

Drendel met stringent eligibility criteria before applying for and being awarded this grant, including displaying a proven commitment to provide an exceptional buying experience for customers who frequent Drendel's Corner Mobil.

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.
