Car dealers support John Wetten Elementary in Gladstone
Gladstone students at John Wetten Elementary will benefit from two grants awarded by local car dealers. Carlos Martinez, general manager of Town and Country Honda, first presented a check for $1,000 from Northwest Honda Dealers, and then matched it with a $1,000 grant from his local dealership.
Martinez said the school was chosen for the grant because of its dedicated teachers and strong base of parent volunteers.
"We found not only a hard working school, but also one that could really benefit from the money," said Martinez. "We love supporting the families in any way possible and watching our Gladstone community continue to grow."
"We are very grateful for this gift," said Principal Wendy Wilson. "As a school working to meet the diverse needs of students, this will help us provide supplies, program support and equipment."
