Representatives with a major car manufacturer are doing their part to help support students in our area.

On Wednesday, March 14th, officials with the Subaru of America Foundation stopped by the Mastery McGraw Elementary School in Camden to present a $10,000 check to Education Works.

The non-profit organization works to provide after-school programing for youth and young adults in the Camden and Philadelphia areas.

Officials say with the help of the funding, Education Works will be able to continue to provide opportunities that will make a world of difference in the lives of the students they serve.

"Any opportunity and every opportunity like this could lead to something greater," said Miles Wilson, president and CEO, Education Works. "We never know, we may not be around to see it, [but] we know ... that when you give young people the opportunity to get exposed to a set of things, sky's the limit."

The funding from Subaru will be used to support a STEAM-based, or science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics, curriculum for after-school programing activities for nearly 200 students in grades K-12 at Woodrow Wilson High School, Mastery East Camden Middle School and Master McGraw Elementary School.
