2020 Subaru Loves Pets - Jennifer H

Throughout the month of October, we partnered with Subaru of Dayton for the 2020 Subaru Loves Pets campaign. Their support helped us promote adoptable dogs and cats who typically get overlooked in shelters because they are an “underdog”. This means they are usually a senior, visually impaired, are in a wheelchair, deaf, disfigured, etc. Many of these animals are overlooked even though they have a lot more life and a lot more love to give, and just want to find their forever home! Thanks to Subaru of Dayton, we were able to find forever homes for so many amazing pets! One of the cats we were able to find a home for was Myrtle, a 13-years-old sweet and sassy cat that was in our shelter for 88 days before finding her forever home. Being a senior cat, she continually was overlooked, but thanks to the support of Subaru of Dayton, we were able to really highlight her and together became a cheerleader for her, which in turned helped her find the loving forever home she so deserved. On behalf of Myrtle and all the animals impacted through our partnership with Subaru, thank you so much for your support and for helping us give them their second chances! #SubaruLovesPets #SubaruOfDaytonLOVESPets

Fight! Fight! Fight! - AMBER H

On Thursday, June 27th, 2019, Subaru of Dayton and the Tri-State Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society delivered 50 blankets for patients and messages of hope to the patients of Kettering Cancer Care. President and CEO at Kettering Medical Center System, Wally Sackett, Cris Peterson, Area Director of the Dayton office, was alongside Brad Hamilton, General Manager of Subaru of Dayton presenting the blanket to active treatment patient, Mary Grubb. Mary shared with us about her diagnosis and journey as she initially went in to the doctor thinking she had bronchitis. She expressed how much she loves her doctors and how her diagnosis has been fairly manageable! Brad loves participating in the Subaru Loves to Care initiative as he lost his father to cancer. Brad allowed Mary to take a message of hope from the box. She read it aloud, “Fight! Fight! Fight!” – This was Brad’s message. The blankets delivered by Subaru are truly making a difference in many patients’ lives, just like Mary.

Customer service is the most important item. - Robert K

I leased my Subaru because Adam Ervin sold me. I like my Subaru. Taking some time to learn how to and operate all the accessories. Adam has been very helpful with my training. Takes a 90 year old a little longer to learn things today.

Subaru of Dayton and LLS Blanket Delivery - Cris P

What should have been one of the most joyful days of Andrew Rourke’s life – the birth of his daughter Nora Rose - was turned upside down. Just two hours before little Nora Rose made her entrance into the world, Andrew received word that test results showed he most likely had cancer. It was a Tuesday and little Nora was born healthy and happy. On Thursday she went home with her family. The following week Andrew started treatment for Stage 3 Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Today as members of the LLS staff, Kettering Hospital and Subaru of Dayton delivered blankets to patients at Kettering Cancer Center, there was much to celebrate. As Andrew finished his last cancer treatment he was surrounded by several family members and a giant bouquet of purple balloons. Andrew was presented with the blanket, care card and craft kit from Subaru of Dayton. “When you get a cancer diagnosis, you feel like your life is over. Then you find out your prognosis is good and you are going to get your life back” … Tears of joy and relief overtook Andrew and he had to pause. He continued by saying “when I see Nora Rose, I will always look at her as my little angel.” As we were leaving, Brad Hamilton, General Manager of Subaru of Dayton, gave Andrew a big hug, told him that it was an honor to meet him and to be able to deliver blankets to those in the fight of their life.

Subaru of Dayton Loves Teachers! - Bethany H

In August 2015, Subaru of Dayton launched a campaign to raise funds for Ms Bethany Hamilton's preschool class at the Kettering Early Childhood Education Center in Moraine Ohio. From Miss Beth - "I am so extremely grateful that I have been chosen for this opportunity. I struggled last year with not having a fully supplied classroom and had to ask parents to donate any old toys they no longer wanted for the preschool children to use. If I don't change out the toys every week the children become bored and difficult to keep engaged. I also struggled with having enough toys to meet all of their developmental and physical needs because they have varying disabilities. Some are still in the infant/toddler stage and others are ready for kindergarten!" With help from our customers, we were able to buy a large portion of her wish list and show our community's children we love learning!
