Fall 2019 Volunteer Sign Up


Dear Friends of School Fuel,


We are so excited to be starting back up for the fall 2019 semester. It is going to be an amazing year, as we are adding 3 new schools, the new elementary school, Rodriguez Elementary, and both of the middle schools, Goodnight and Miller! We will need lots of help to make this growth and transition smooth.

On top of that, we are moving buildings! Our new location will be 1331 State Hwy 123, next to Goodnight Middle School. We will be on the left side of the building, but the 1st garage door. Watch our Facebook for ways you can help with that move, we are hoping to be all moved in the week before our first packing date.


We will be letting everyone know about opportunities to help with the move and with School Fuel weekly service activities.
