Don “K” Subaru recently made donations to assist with providing healthy snacks for Evergreen schools.

Laurie Barron, superintendent of the Evergreen School District, Melissa Hardman, principal of Evergreen Crossroads School and Sherry Odegard, principal of East Evergreen Elementary, on Oct. 14 accepted the donation of a $2,000 check, an additional $400 from AdoptA-Classroom.org, and a large number of healthy snacks and classroom supply kits from employees of the local Subaru dealership.

“We could not be more grateful for the generosity of Don “K” Subaru and the entire team here at the dealership,” Barron said. “We will use these funds and supplies to provide healthy snacks for our students to keep their energy high and their mental focus strong during their long school days.”

“We believe strongly that every child should have the materials and tools they need to be successful,” Kevin Kaltschmidt, general manager of the local dealership said. “We are excited to pursue that vision by continuing our Subaru partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org. When we

asked Principal Odegard what she needed, she did not hesitate. She told us that her students needed enriching snacks to help them get through their days. We are delighted to help.”

Subaru Love Loves Learning is a key pillar of the annual Subaru Love Promise program sponsored by the car manufacturer and supported across the nation by Subaru dealers like Don “K” Subaru. The five annual, month-long efforts are Subaru Loves the Earth, Subaru Loves Pets, Subaru Loves to Care, Subaru Loves to Help and Subaru Loves Learning.

“Don “K” Whitefish is committed to local involvement as just one more way to say thank-you to our many loyal customers,” Kaltschmidt said. “We are determined to remain an employer of choice in the valley and to give back as much as we can to our area nonprofits that do such good.”
