VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Charles Barker Automotive donates a $56,000 Sprinter Van to An Achievable Dream school.

An Achievable Dream's mission is to provide field trips and activities to students outside of the classroom, however the school did not have proper resources to do so.

Local car dealer, Charles Barker Automotive donated a 2019 Sprinter Van, retailed at $56,000, to An Achievable Dream.

“Transporting our students safely is always our primary goal. This amazing gift of a Sprinter Van dedicated to our Dreamers will allow us to continue to open a world of opportunities for our students,” said Lee Vreeland, President and CEO, An Achievable Dream, Inc. "We could not be more grateful for Charles Barker's support of our organization."

Chairman Charles Barker was not aware that the school lacked transportation services initially, but says he is now thrilled to play a part in An Achievable Dream and “Inspiring Hope Through Education.”

“Having a dedicated Sprinter Van enables the Academy to plan daily transportation needs as well as them the flexibility to use it a moment’s notice or in case of an emergency,” Barker said.
