Rex Altree, has announced that he and his company, SafePro Auto Glass, will be doing a fundraiser for his children’s school, Quartz Hill Elementary, of Gilbert Arizona. Mr. Altree has volunteered to donate and run this fundraiser over the next five months (January 1st through May 31st).
This fundraiser will be for Gilbert residents who have their windshields replaced, either paying out of pocket or using their Insurance, through SafePro Auto Glass. Rex Altree and his family owned company will donate a minimum of $50 dollars for every insurance windshield replacement purchased through SafePro, and $20 if customers pay out of pocket. All the money will go to Quartz Hill Elementary School. This money will be donated for teachers K- 6 for purchasing Classroom supplies or things that the school may need. This means that a minimum of $50 for every windshield replaced with insurance, and $20 for cash replacements, would go straight to the school’s teachers for classroom supplies that teachers might have to pay for out of pocket otherwise.
When asked why Mr. Altree decided to do this fundraiser, he replied: “Our two children went to Quartz Hill from kindergarten through the 6th grade and both had a very positive learning and educational experience. For my kids to have received such a quality education, in the great Quartz Hill School environment, was and is incredibly important, and will shape who they are for a lifetime.” Mr. Altree also stated: “The Principal, Mr. (Michael) Hallock, is the best! He has built a very strong team of educators at Quartz Hill that did more than just educate my kids, they provided a place of safety and gave them an environment where learning was fun and enjoyable. They also provided mental and emotional support. To young children, these are all critical factors to successful learning and growing up.”
Mr. Rex Altree, was then asked for more details as to motive behind the fundraiser, to which he replied: “I know that a lot of times teachers have to pay for many materials themselves. I hope we can help these teachers by doing a fund raiser. The way we have it set up provides three key components. First it encourages my local community to get involved in raising money for the school. Second, it will help to alleviate some of the financial concerns that many of the teachers go through. Finally, it will bring some positive publicity to the school and the District. It will help show our local community what an excellent job they have done in fostering the education of our children, and shine a spotlight on these truly inspirational educators! We are proud, and truly grateful, that we can play our part as both a family and a local business, in supporting the teachers and our school.”
