The 2017 Dolan Class Project has truly blown us away. 33 classrooms came together within the last two months to better our community through fun and unique outreach projects. The students and teachers that participated took the project seriously and made it their mission to impact others.
It was a joy to read through the submissions and watch the videos put together showcasing their hard work. These classes did it ALL – from putting together “Blessing Bags” for the homeless to collecting pajamas for children in need. The 33 participating classrooms found needs in our community and met them with kindness and the desire to help!
The Dolan Team is honored by the level of support and buy-in from teachers, administrations, students, parents and community members throughout this year’s project.
On behalf of Dolan Auto Group, I would like to extend a BIG thank you to all of the classes that submitted and a special congratulations to the 12 that won!
