Dimmitt Automotive Group is proud to participate in the Florida Hope Scholarship Program. The program provides private school tuition for student victims of bullying and violence.
Bullying is a major problem faced by students today. A whopping 70% of young people have reported witnessing bullying. And almost a third of our nation’s students have reported experiencing bullying or violence in school. But for many families, transferring their child to a private school isn’t an option.
In 2018, the Florida Legislature launched a program to support those victims. And Dimmitt Automotive proudly signed up to participate. Now, when a student in public school experiences bullying or violence at school, the child’s family can go to the Florida Department of Education for help. The Hope Scholarship will help to transfer the student to a private school. Any student from kindergarten through 12th grade who has experienced bullying is eligible. The Hope Scholarship Program is not based on financial need.
When you purchase a vehicle at Dimmitt Automotive locations, you can be a part of the solution. At the time of sale, let us know that you would like to give a portion of your sales tax to the fund. Choosing to help costs nothing. There aren’t any additional fees.
As always, Dimmitt Automotive group is grateful for the opportunity to be a positive part of the community.
