HAWTHORNE, Calif, 03/14/2017 /SubmitPressRelease123/
As a part of the Subaru Love Promise initiative, Subaru Pacific is asking the members of their community to help collect school supply donations for the Harbor Teacher Preparation Academy. From pens and pencils to calculators and binders, the Hawthorne, CA, Subaru dealership is seeking donations that will enrich classrooms and give students access to the tools they need to learn and grow. Donations can be dropped off at Subaru Pacific, located at 14700 Hindry Avenue in Hawthorne, CA, during regular business hours throughout the month of March. Community members are also invited to join Subaru Pacific on Thursday, March 16, for the dealership’s Third Thursday Customer Appreciation event at 5:30 p.m., where there will be a designated drop-off area.
All donations will benefit the Harbor Teacher Preparation Academy (HTPA), a four-year Early College high school set on the campus of Harbor College in Los Angeles. The school was founded in 2002, with the mission of increasing graduation rates and college enrollment among at-risk/highly capable students, and to simultaneously address a teacher shortage by educating students who have a strong interest in becoming teachers. HTPA places a precedent on nurturing students who have high potential, but face barriers to their success. The school’s population includes students from single-parent households, as well as students who speak a primary language other than English and students who come from low-income households.
“As a member of the LAcarGUY family of dealerships and thanks to the Subaru Love Promise, Subaru Pacific has always made community involvement a top priority,” said James Hartzberg, General Manager of Subaru Pacific. “Community service is a main tenet of our dealership because we believe stepping up to help those around us is key to our success as a community. We want to do our part in building a better future for today’s students and tomorrow’s teachers.”
