Peacock Subaru Hilton Head, as part of its effort to improve education in its community, donated 150 award-winning science books to Okatie Elementary School on Thursday, Sept. 27.

Throughout the month of August, the dealership, located at the Peacock Auto Mall on Highway 278 near Bluffton, S.C., asked customers to personalize custom labels for the science books that were supplied by the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

"We're pleased to take part in the Subaru Loves Learning initiative, which reflects the desire of our team members and customers to improve the education and the lives of those in this community," said Warner Peacock, president and CEO of Peacock Automotive. "It reflects the larger goal of the Subaru Love Promise Community to make a positive impact in the world in which we live and work."

Okatie Elementary is a National Blue Ribbon School that has earned "Palmetto Gold" statewide honors for student achievement and closing achievement gaps. Its mission, based on science, health and technology, is to meet students' academic needs while promoting character development, leadership and healthy lifestyles.
