In continuation of its work to support the students of the Camden City School District, Camden-based Subaru of America said it will “adopt” all middle school classrooms in the district, by providing critical learning materials to students.
The adoption, which covers grades six through eight, is part of the Subaru Loves Learning initiative, a partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org to give all students an equal opportunity to thrive in the classroom.
In all, seven schools, 88 classrooms and 1,184 students will be adopted through the initiative. Additionally, flexible funding will be provided for teachers to purchase supplies customized to their classroom. Subaru will also provide school supply kits of classroom essentials, packed by employees at Subaru of America.
“All students deserve the tools to thrive and succeed in the classroom, and we want our friends and neighbors in Camden to have every opportunity to get a great education and achieve their goals,” Thomas Doll, CEO and president, Subaru of America, stated. “We hope this ‘adoption’ from Subaru helps support a great school year for all.”
“Middle school is a pivotal moment in a child’s education, and lacking essential learning materials adds extra burdens to students, parents and classrooms,” Katrina McCombs, superintendent of the Camden City School District, stated. “Thanks to Subaru, the Camden City School District can focus on doing what we do best: helping students in our school district achieve their highest potential.”
As part of the Subaru Loves Learning initiative, Subaru of America and more than 600 participating retailers are working with AdoptAClassroom.org to help teachers and schools purchase the tools and materials they need for their students. The adoption of classrooms in the Camden City school district reinforces the automaker’s dedication to enhancing the learning experience for students, especially in their hometown of Camden.
