Whitefish dealership donates to East Evergreen Elementary

| November 29, 2023 12:00 AM

Whitefish dealership Don “K” donated $2,700 to East Evergreen Elementary School last week as part of the Subaru Loves Learning month campaign.

Subaru Loves Learning is an annual giving program associated with the national organization,  AdoptAClassroom.org. The effort allows a dealership to adopt a local classroom and provide teachers with flexible funding to purchase school supplies and other resources.

Evergreen Elementary School is a Title 1 School whose students come from Kalispell and Evergreen areas of the Flathead Valley. There are approximately 375 students enrolled from pre-school through fourth grade. There are 32 dedicated teachers plus support staff. 

East Evergreen Principal Sherry Odegard and her team received the donations from Kevin Kaltschmidt,  general manager of Don “K” Subaru. 

"These funds and these kits will be used to help those students most in need with healthy snacks and excellent tools for classroom enhancement," she said. "Without Don “K” we would not be able to support our students to this level. Thank you so much!”
