Supporting Local Classrooms
Wednesday, 26 October, 2022
This August, we fundraised money through test drives for school supplies at Harnish Auto Family, as well as donating to Lincoln High School for Subaru Loves Learning. These campaigns in total allowed us to donate over $15,000 to local schools and teachers to ensure they had an amazing school year!
Volkswagen, Subaru, and Chevrolet Buick GMC of Puyallup all teamed together to donate $10 for every test drive taken to put towards local schools through Donors Choose, a classroom funding site where teachers can share their projects. Together, we raised over $4,000 with donations and matching offers for teachers in the Puyallup and Tacoma area providing things like books, science kits, art supplies, and classroom materials. Chevrolet of Everett also partnered with the Everett Public School Foundation to donate backpacks full of various school supplies to help out different classrooms in the Everett area!
Mrs. Pick from Roosevelt Elementary says, “Thank you so much Subaru of Puyallup for helping my students get materials to love science! These projects are going to be so much fun for them to learn through! I’m excited to offer fun, hands on, engaging projects and lessons! Thanks for your support to my classroom, students, and myself! We appreciate you!”
Donations were made to teachers at Sunrise Elementary in Puyallup, Maple Lawn Elementary in Sumner, Roosevelt Elementary in Tacoma, Edgerton Elementary in Puyallup, Frederickson Elementary in Puyallup, as well as the Puyallup Digital Learning Center and the Everett Public School Foundation. We were excited to be able to provide these various supplies to the teachers in our area to create the best experience for their students this school year. Thank you to all our teachers for all you do for our kids and community, and thank you to our customers who allow us to help our community in this way!
