Rairdon’s Back-to-School Drive Benefitting Hopelink

Rairdon’s family of dealerships was looking for the answer to one question: How can we give our underserved students a helpful push toward the finish line? Here’s what we came up with (we think you’re going to like it).

Rairdon’s Back-to-School Drive is July 15

Education, the tools for school, and a brighter future–all of these are pieces of the same puzzle…

So Rairdon is putting them together with a back-to-school drive July 15th – August 15th.

The drive comes as part of a partnership with Hopelink, the local favorite that works to combat poverty (oh how we love them).

From July 15th to August 15th, for every new or used car sold, Rairdon will be providing a

back-to-school kit to local Washington-area students living below the poverty line.

What’s Inside the Back to School Kit

The back-to-school kit will include 3-ring binders, scientific calculators, composition notebooks, divider tabs, graph paper, headphones, highlighters, index cards, pencil boxes/pouches, sharpies/dry erase markers, USB flash drives, and multi-colored backpacks. Basically, everything a student would need to be prepared for school each day.

List of Participating Rairdon Dealerships

13 total Rairdon dealerships will be participating in the back-to-school drive. These include:

  • Honda of Sumner
  • Honda of Burien
  • Honda of Marysville
  • Nissan of Auburn
  • Subaru of Auburn
  • Dodge Chrysler Jeep of Kirkland
  • Dodge Chrysler Jeep of Monroe

More About Hopelink

We really can’t overstate the importance of Hopelink to the local Seattle area.

Hopelink gives those in poverty access to direct services as well as connections to qualified resources to make the organization’s theory of change a reality.

This theory of change enables those who are in need to move from having basic necessities met (think food, nutrition, and housing) to becoming equipped to exit poverty.
