CarMax Discovery JamCarMax has been an engaged and caring partner for years, but this May and June SCAN had the unique opportunity to work with CarMax employees on a number of projects.

CarMax made a huge difference with a recent $25,000 grant to SCAN’s Circle Preschool Program. We were thrilled to have Melissa Ragsdale, CarMax Ambassador, visit the preschool in May to learn about the program, hear about the immense impact CarMax’s gift has on the children served by the preschool, and talk directly with Kathy Ryan and Denise Powers about their work.

On June 12, a group of 9 CarMax employees spent the morning beautifying the Grace Street office entrance, organizing basement storage, painting canvas hearts and assembling sensory kits! We are still in awe at the incredible job they did cleaning up the front porch and planting beautiful flowers. Thank you all for making SCAN a friendly and beautiful place for families to visit!

Also during the month of June, SCAN was part of the CarMax Discovery Jam. SCAN staff, Kristen and Sarah, worked with a talented, creative bunch of CarMax employees as they guided us through a process of evaluating our website to maximize SCAN’s outreach efforts. We look forward to continuing this partnership and making positive changes to how we reach SCAN supporters online!

Thank you to CarMax and all the individual employees that do so much to protect children and strengthen families in our community. We are truly grateful for your partnership and your passion!
