Automaker to Donate More Than 40,000 Science Books to Schools Across the Country as Part of the “Subaru Loves Learning” Initiative
Camden, NJ - Subaru of America is proud to announce its donation of more than 1,700 award-winning science textbooks to 17 Camden schools, continuing the brand’s commitment to education as part of its “Subaru Loves Learning” initiative. This year, Subaru partnered with The American Association of the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to help provide much needed learning materials to teachers and students and promote science education around the country.
Subaru employees, led by president and COO Thomas J. Doll, personally delivered the new science textbooks during a ceremony held at Catto Community School in Camden, which included remarks from Doll, Paymon Rouhanifard, Superintendent, Camden City School District, Dana Redd, Mayor of Camden, Board of Education President Martha Wilson and Catto Principal Byron Dixon. Late last year, Subaru broke ground on its future U.S. headquarters in the city of Camden.
“The ‘Subaru Loves Learning’ initiative is all about supporting causes in our local communities that we and our owners care deeply about, including the continued education of our youth,” said Thomas J. Doll, president and COO, Subaru of America. “As we prepare to make Camden our new home, it is important to us at Subaru to support the community and through this donation we hope to make a positive impact on the local youth and inspire the next generation of scientific minds.”
The ‘Subaru Loves Learning’ initiative is part of the brand’s Love Promise philanthropic platform, created to support the causes dearest to Subaru and its owners in their local communities. In partnership with AAAS, Subaru and its retailers will donate more than 40,000 science books to schools around the country as part of this program.
“My team and teachers across the District thank Subaru of America for its generous donation of these award-winning science books,” said Superintendent Rouhanifard. “As the number of jobs in science-related fields continues to grow, we appreciate partners like Subaru for helping give Camden students a strong foundation in the STEM subjects.”
