WSAU.com: In Marshfield, fueling up your vehicle can now help support local schools.
That’s according to Marshfield School Board member Mark Konrardy, who says the owner of the Baltus Oil Company will make a small donatation to the school district for every gallon of gas purchased from a specially marked Marshfield Tigers Pride Pump.
“John Baltus, with Baltus gas stations, made a proposal,” Konrardy said. “He would like to put in a ‘Pride Pump’ and we thought it was a very good idea, and very good for the school district.”
“He’ll pick one of his gas stations, pick one of the pumps, and he’ll put the Marshfield School District logo on it,” Konrardy explained. “And a certain amount of those proceeds will then go to the school district.”
