ARBOC Specialty Vehicles of Middlebury, IN, the leader in the low floor bus market, recently held its annual dealer seminar in conjunction with its charity golf outing and raised $50,325.00 for the Spirit of Alexandria Foundation. As a supporter of the foundation, ARBOCs donations of over $400,000 in the past 10 years have aided the foundation in establishing mobile nature classrooms as well as various ecology & science scholarships for children. “We are very grateful to all our partners, dealers and vendors for their generous and kind donations that make this possible” said Don Roberts, President & CEO of ARBOC and a Board Member of the foundation.
The Spirit of Alexandria Foundation was created by Leah & Craig Bennett to carry on the legacy of Alexandria Bennett, granddaughter of one of ARBOC’s founders, Jim Bartel. Through this foundation, it is her family and friends mission to help children experience nature. “We are thrilled to be able to make this donation to the foundation,” said Don Roberts. “I know my friends at the Spirit of Alexandria Foundation are incredibly appreciative of our efforts to support their goals of connecting children to nature”.
