Fairway Subaru presented a butterfly garden habitat to the Hazleton Area Education Foundation for the Life Skills Garden Project at Valley Elementary/Middle School.
During the Subaru Loves the Earth initiative in April 2016, Subaru sponsored the National Wildlife Federation’s Butterfly Heroes program. The National Wildlife Federation’s Butterfly Heroes program is designed to help increase monarch butterfly populations through the planting and building of habitats butterflies need to survive, while also raising awareness that 1 out of 3 bites on our dinner plates is made possible by pollinators. To support the efforts, Subaru and local retailers, like Fairway Subaru in Hazleton, worked to establish additional butterfly habitats in local communities across the country.
Fairway Subaru has donated their butterfly habitat to the Hazleton Area Education Foundation to be used in the Life Skills Garden at Valley Elementary/Middle School. The Life Skills Garden, made possible through a Bimbo Bakeries Good Neighbor grant, will be maintained by the fourth through eighth grade Life Skills and Autism Support students. The goal of the Life Skills Garden Project is to facilitate engagement in horticulture based activities paired with social skills development for students with intellectual disabilities.
The Subaru Love Promise is a pledge by Subaru to do right by the communities in which they live and work. This is Subaru’s promise to continue making a positive impact in the world and our local community.
The Hazleton Area Education Foundation is a 501(c) (3) non-profit charitable organization whose mission is to enrich the Greater Hazleton community by supporting programs and initiatives that provide enhanced academic, cultural and athletic opportunities for students of the Hazleton Area School District.
