Belmont High School’s science program will soon be the beneficiary of a little lovin’ as Cityside Subaru is donating 150 books to the high school’s science program through the Subaru Loves Learning Project, part of the Subaru Love Promise Campaign.
The presentation was made at the Belmont School Committee meeting on Oct. 10.
In partnership with the Science Books & Films (SB&F) Project at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the books will supplement existing curriculum by supporting K-12 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education, while also helping to build reading and literacy skills. The ultimate goal of the donation is to engage young learners in the world of science and inspire them to want to learn more.
“Education is very important to us, we spend a lot of time training our people,” said Cityside’s General Manager Richard White to the committee and Belmont Superintendent John Phelan, Belmont High Principal Dan Richards and District Science Director Elizabeth Baker.
“Anytime we can leverage our relationship with Subaru to help bring more money and programs to the community, we are all for that,” said White.
The dealership is located at 790 Pleasant St.
In 2015, Subaru created the Subaru Love Promise Campaign, a pledge to do right by the communities in which local retailers live and work. It is a promise to make a positive impact in the world by focusing on improving our neighborhoods and communities.
Other Belmont and Boston-area charities and non-profits that benefit from the Subaru Love Promise Campaign include:
- MSPCA, Animal Rescue League of Boston
- Foundation For Belmont Education
- Dan Scharfman Memorial 5K race
- Fenway Health Initiative.
