Thank you for promoting inclusion! - Adriane M

Thank-you Rick Kerstetter and Subaru of Dayton for supporting inclusion throughout the Miami Valley. The donation we received through the Share the Love campaign has provided NCCJ the opportunity to facilitate our Anytown Youth Leadership Retreat. At Anytown, high school students learn how to be active allies and inclusive leaders within their school and community. They connect with community leaders and learn practical skills that will last them a lifetime. One of the participants commented that "Anytown was a great experience that I will always remember. Thank you to everyone that made it possible."

Still Helping During a Pandemic - Jessica G

2020 has been a unique year at the Humane Society of Greater Dayton. Normal events such as our annual Furry Skurry 5K had to shift to online events. Despite the adjustments that needed to be made throughout the year, Subaru of Dayton continued to provide support and love to the animals in our care. Through their presenting sponsorship of our 2020 Virtual Furry Skurry, they directly impacted hundreds of animals that needed medical care and support at our shelter. They also partnered with us for the fifth year in a row for our Snag a Subaru raffle drawing. Thanks to their support, we were able to raffle off a 2021 Subaru Crosstrek. We sold tickets for $25 each and this year sold a record-breaking 2,444 tickets. All of the proceeds from this raffle went to the animals in our care. This support helps us provide spay/neuter surgeries, protect animals from cruelty or neglect and find loving forever homes to so many homeless animals. We are so grateful for the continued support and love that all of the staff at Subaru of Dayton provides to our animals. We are also grateful for all of those community members who participated in their annual Share the Love event and chose to designate the Humane Society of Greater Dayton as their charity of choice. These funds do so much for our shelter and for that we are beyond thankful for the support!

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.

For the House family a visit to Kettering Medical Center in January 2018 led them to an unexpected cancer diagnosis. Glenda House was diagnosed with Diffuse Large B cell Lymphoma.

As part of the Subaru Loves to Care program, Brad Hamilton of Subaru of Dayton and Cris Peterson, Dayton Area Director at the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society met with Glenda and her husband Thomas along with Terry Burns, President of Kettering Medical Center.
