Little Warriors - Jessica D

In early October, our rescue received a plea for help. A very young couple, with no knowledge of proper care for animals or the vet care that a pet needs, had an accidental litter. They needed help ensuring that the puppies went to good homes and help to cover the cost of spaying the mom. At that time, the puppies were not old enough to be weaned from the mother dog, so the pups needed to stay in the home for a little while longer. During this time, our rescue placement coordinator, Lee, worked tirelessly to make sure that there was a place for these puppies when the time was right. At no time did we receive any indication that the puppies were in any type of distress. When the time came for the puppies to move into rescue and be weaned from the mom, the dog owners stopped communicating with rescue. At that time, we were extremely concerned that these babies had been given away or sold, which can be a terrible fate for dogs in our area. Two weeks later, Mayberry4Paws finally received word that the puppies were still in their care but that they were not doing well. At that time, the owner informed us that one of the puppies couldn't even stand up. That is when Lee jumped into action. On a Saturday morning, she quickly drove over and picked up the puppies. They were, indeed, in really bad shape. Their lives were hanging in the balance. Two, in particular, were so weak that they could not support themselves or stand up and had trouble keeping their eyes open. After picking them all up, she quickly gave them some honey to attempt to liven them up for their trip. They were suffering from worms, flea anemia, and dehydration. After getting a dose of honey, two of the puppies livened up for the trip and were crated for the drive. The other two continued to show signs that they may not survive. Lee kept those two puppies in her lap, throughout the drive, so that she could keep tapping them and lifting their faces to make sure that they would stay conscious and stay alive. Rescue quickly got the puppies dewormed, bathed to rid them of fleas, new puppy vaccinations, and administered fluids intravenously to help with their dehydration. They also helped to get the lame puppy back on his feet. As you can tell, from the picture progression in the video, all of these puppies are alive and well today, thanks to rescue. The mother of this litter will now get spayed, paid for by rescue, and will no longer have to go through what she has. On November 6, 2021, these puppies got their happy ending, as they were tranferred to a larger rescue with greater ability to provide on-going care that will soon lead to them being ready for adoption.

Reading is a Treat - Michelle P

Rockford Elementary School would like to thank Scenic Subaru. We are holding a Reading is a Treat event so students can go "Trick or Treating" to pick out a book of their choice. This even would not have been possible without the kindness and generosity of Scenic Subaru. Our students are lucky to have business in our community like Scenic Subaru that care so much about their education and take an interest in helping.

Suburu Spreading the Love - Joshua E

My name is Joshua Edwards and I'm the director of operations at The Shepherd's House, a homeless shelter in Mount Airy, NC. About a month ago, Landon at our local Subaru dealership (Scenic) reached out to me about a program that Subaru does to help organizations. This year he said they were giving out blankets to organizations that could use them/need them, and I told him we could definitely use them! So what did we do with the blankets? Shortly after we received the blankets, we were scheduled to host a winter giveaway (to give coats and blankets to those in need for the cold weather coming) at our sister agency Helping Hands, with the help of one of our partner agencies called Partner's Behavioral Health. We were able to give away some of the blankets at this event. We also complete surveys with the homeless once a year, called the Point in Time count (PIT). The PIT count gives the government and our local communities a clearer image demographically of who may be experiencing homelessness on any given night. Every year when we complete this count, we like to reach out to our partner agencies and get things like blankets, coats, and food to give out. The remaining Subaru blankets we have will be used to give out to those in need the night of the PIT count. When we get donations at The Shepherd's House, we like to make the most of them by helping as many people as we can. When Landon reached out to me, I knew we had a million uses for the blankets but wanted to give them out in the most effective way. Through this Subaru program/donation, we will be able to give a nice, warm blanket to each and every individual we come across the night of the PIT count. Some may be sleeping under bridges, in their cars, and even in the woods, but with Subaru’s help at least I know that these people in need will be a little bit warmer that night. It is because of partnerships and generosity like this that we are able to help those in need. We are extremely grateful for this donation, for our local Subaru dealership stepping up and connecting us to this program, and it is my hope that Subaru continues to offer programs to assist organizations in their communities. Thank you!

"Love Can Change Everyhting" - Robin H

Foothills Food Pantry has been the recipient of Scenic Subaru's -"Share the Love" event for four years. During that time more than $30,000 has been gifted to the Pantry. Each year Subaru has supported our efforts in providing emergency groceries for local families. In 2019 approximately 3,950 families utilized our services: this number including family members represents approximately 8,900 individuals. Subaru has been a blessing to our community and families that live here. COVID-19 has had an impact on all of us. The number of families visiting the Pantry have tripled. This number has leveled off, but I feel Mid- May 2020, there will be another increase in families needing assistance. Subaru's support will allow us to meet the community's need, and "Together We Make a Difference" Whatever trouble this world may bring, Subaru's Share the Love event reminds us, That Love can change everything. God Bless, Wishes of Health & Wellness go out to All !! Robin Hardin, Coordinator Foothills Food Pantry

In Time of Need - Katy W

I have attempted to find the words to express my thanks and appreciation for all of the work that was done to repair the car for Katy Williams. Any words that come to mind seem inadequate for the work and care that was taken by the staff at Scenic Subaru and the Subaru Corporation. When I reached out to the dealership for help in mid -February, I felt it was a long shot , but I was holding on to the hope that I might get some type of assistance. The help that was provided exceeded all my expectations, and I will be forever grateful to everyone that had a hand in this grand gesture. I have been working in community health and social work since 2002. Helping people when they have hit rock- bottom has been a major part of my job responsibility. I have worked with many organizations over the years, but my experience with Scenic Subaru has far been the most positive. Oftentimes my requests for help are declined from the start, or managers will not return my calls. Scenic Subaru, specifically Keith Easter, has shown care and concern for Katy's situation from day one. Mr. Easter has called or texted me with updates, spoken to outside donors and arranged to accept payment from a community club. He has gone above and beyond, just as the entire organization has for this situation. Without the help of the Subaru Corporation and Scenic Subaru, Katy Williams would not be able to get the medical care that she needs. Your contribution is so much more than an automotive repair. It has given a 13-year-old hope that she may be able to walk unassisted again because now she can get to the Shriner's Hospital in South Carolina. I pray God continues to bless each and every person and business that has had a part in this grand gesture. Again, I cannot thank you all enough for your kindness and generosity. Thank You, Amanda Draughn
