Convenience Retailing provides grants to schools

Wilde Lake, Centennial and Oakland Mills high schools, Dasher Green Owen Brown School and Running Brook Elementary School have received a $500 grant each from Convenience Retailing LLC, which owns and operates the Dorsey Hall Mobil and Columbia Mobil service stations.

Rick Levitan, a partner of Convenience Retailing LLC, has donated and raised money in addition to the grants, which ConocoPhillips awards to its top franchisees for distribution to schools. The total amount presented to the five schools for 2002-03 was $6,400.

Customers who have repairs done at the two stations can request 10 percent of the bill to be donated to one of the five schools.
