***ORIGINALLY A PRESS RELEASE FROM CARS.COM***

 

CARS.COM PROVIDES BACKPACKS AND SUPPLIES FOR STUDENTS

 

Taking a cue from the corporate headquarters in Chicago, Cars.com Santa Monica recently took part in their own “Build a Backpack” program for needy school children.  Employees spent their own money to buy 22 backpacks and filled them with much needed school supplies for elementary to high school students.

 

Cars.com was happy that they were able to take a small step in making a huge effect in a child’s academic future.

 

Pictured below, Vince King and Bonnie Tilley (right) of Cars.com Santa Monica were greeted by Marolyn Freedman, Director of Pupil Services, Tim Cuneo, Superintendent, and Kimberly Curry, Head of Student Records, from the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District.
