Dick Hannah Dealerships was proud to be the title sponsor for the 2017 Write From the Start School Supply Drive supporting students in the Evergreen and Vancouver public school districts. Did you know that nearly 50% of students in Vancouver qualify for lunch assistance? This is an indicator of financial need and means that hundreds of families likely struggle to provide basic supplies for their children’s education.
During the summer of 2017, hundreds of collection boxes were distributed to dozens of local businesses to collect supplies from customers and employees. Those boxes were collected on August 20 at our Stuff The Bus event at Dick Hannah Honda. For more than five hours, cars, truck, vans and trailers pulled into the lot to fill a huge school bus with supplies. All together, more than FIVE TONS of supplies were collected.
We’re looking forward to another successful school supply drive in 2018. Stay tuned for details as we join forces with other local businesses to support our neighbor families so they can begin the next school year Write From the Start.
