What Are We Doing?

This summer, we have the honor of taking part in the Subaru Loves Learning Community Commitment initiative, which aims to provide K-12 students with an array of STEM learning materials. This initiative is just one piece of the Subaru Love Promise—a promise that aims to improve the communities in which we live. We’ll be supporting the Subaru mission in Wilsonville by donating 150 books to Lowrie Primary School come mid-September.

Why Are We Doing It?

Subaru put it best when they said, “We believe in making the world a better place. That’s why we build fuel-efficient vehicles in eco-friendly plants. That’s why, over the past 20 years, we’ve donated more than 50 million dollars to causes we all care about, and our employees have logged more than 28,000 volunteer hours. And that’s why we created the Subaru Love Promise.”

By participating in this initiative, we can help draw attention to meaningful careers paths and support the desire to innovate in the worlds of science and engineering.

How Are We Doing It?

Subaru of America is teaming up with the American Association for the Advancement of Science(AAAS) in order to supply these students with tens of thousands of award-winning science books that the AAAS has deemed the best of their kind. The AAAS comprises more than 100,000 members who continuously strive for the advancement of engineering and science.

According to Subaru, “Over 50% of the fastest growing jobs in the U.S. are in the fields of science and only 26% of high school students are ready for college level science. With the inclusion of outstanding K-12 science trade books in the classroom, teachers can help bridge the gap.” In order to facilitate effective learning in local classrooms, our upcoming book donation will include extensive blog posts, book lists, and lesson plans. This way, students can get the most out of the donation and, as a result, further themselves and their communities.
