Student Charity of the Month

C89.5 joins Carter Subaru to present the Student Charity of the Month campaign. Every month, we’ll spotlight a local nonprofit or charity as selected by students from Nathan Hale High School. Many students volunteer with local charities, or have benefited from their services personally, or are simply interested in learning more about their work. Carter Subaru is proud to support increased awareness of these vital organizations impacting our community, while fostering philanthropy among young people.
