On Thursday, March 23, 2017, representatives from Annapolis Subaru presented a check for $27,090 to The Summit School as part of the Subaru 2016 Share the Love event. From November 17, 2016 to January 3, 2107 Subaru of America donated $250, to the customer’s choice of charities, for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased. Customers could select from four national charities, as well as, a Hometown Charity. This year, Annapolis Subaru selected The Summit School as their Hometown Charity. If the customer selected The Summit School as the receiving charity, Annapolis Subaru added $50 to each donation.
“Annapolis Subaru has always been a generous partner to The Summit School. We were honored to be chosen as the Hometown Charity and want to thank Annapolis Subaru for their ongoing support,” said Dr. Joan Mele-McCarthy, Executive Director of The Summit School. “We will use today’s gift for our scholarship fund and to educate the community not only about learning differences and the importance of early identification and access to evidence-based programs, but the resources available through the Summit Resource Center and The Summit School.”
The Summit School was founded in 1989 with a mission to educate children with unique learning profiles to their full potential. Today, Summit remains the only school program to exclusively serve bright students with dyslexia and other learning differences in Anne Arundel County. Summit’s transformative effect on their students, who once feared school but now love to learn, and their compelling success stories, often inspire others to seek the specialized education they need.
A special shout out to our friends at Annapolis Subaru, Pat Wergin, Executive Vice President, Billy Sadtler, General Manager and Michelle Eichhorn, Marketing Director, who visited The Summit School to present the gift. Thank you!
