Education depends on small business

587 × 226

With school now a week underway I just thought I would talk a little about some of the ways that we at Lake Charles Toyota choose to invest our support dollars.  It would astound you if I listed every item that we expend in a month to support our school efforts.  Every small business in our community is a vital key in meeting the needs of the schools.  Small amounts add up to make significant impact.  It may not be as eye catching as some of the big companies or individuals, but the masses are very important to the fulfilling of the needs.

 

We support McNeese, Sowela, and Calcasieu Parish School Board schools, teachers, and students with funds to pay for student activities as well as supplies, clothing, and even food for hungry kids.  A sample list of these includes:

$5000 Brentwood Elementary playground equipment

$5000 annual scholarship to Sowela automotive students

Fox 29/ABC Pack the Bus School Supply Drive sponsorship, benefitting DeWanna’s Closet

On site lunch preparation and serving lunch to CPSB educators

Merryville HS scoreboard

Positive Connections school sign

Lagrange HS digital sign

Barbe softball infield tarp

Lagrange HS softball equipment

Pride of McNeese Marching Band sponsor

Sax in the City event sponsor, Music makers 2U and music education

$5000 to CPSB for Buster the Bus school bus safety program

Sponsor of KPLC Class Act Award to recognize educators

 

These are just a sample of the types of investments we have made in education in our area over the past year.  We are proud to be able to do it.  It is our way of returning to our community some of the financial support that they have given to us.
