Subaru of Corvallis Shares More Than Just Love - Kate C

I knew that the team at Subaru of Corvallis was very community minded and had shown how much they care over the years. I have seen it many different times. When I joined a nonprofit organization that provides services and support for survivors of domestic and sexual violence, they didn't hesitate to say: "What can we do to help?" They are always there to support families in need. They understand that when someone makes that crucial decision to leave a violent home, they often are not alone, the kids go with them. It is a family in crisis and trauma. It takes funds to help that family get to safety and a new life. Subaru of Corvallis's most recent donation will help 20 families with application fees for safe housing. Amazing ! They make a difference in our community, they step up when asked, they help us help families and we are so grateful MKC Executive Director CARDV cardv.org

A Love Promise Community Commitment Story. - Michael R

Thank you to Subaru of Corvallis for your support to the Military Science Scholarship Endowment Fund (MSSEF).

Subaru keeps pets with families - Emily J

At Heartland Humane Shelter & Care we recognize the impact that animals have on our lives and strive to preserve the human-animal bond. Our Safe Housing Program embodies this, providing free and confidential care for the companion animals of families in crisis situations in our local community. At Heartland we know that animals are family, and are sometimes the only family a person has. For those fleeing domestic violence, needing medical treatment, or without permanent housing, the safety and well-being of their animal companion should not be an another thing they have to worry about. Since 2002, Heartland has been providing care to animals and comfort to families through the Safe Housing Program. We offer this care, including boarding, vaccinations, parasite treatments, spay/neuter if needed, and more to families at no cost, so the humans can take care of themselves and get back on their feet. In 2020, with wildfires, record temperatures, medical emergencies, and homelessness affecting more people this past year, The Safe Housing Program provided care for animal companions with the promise that they would be reunited after people received the help they needed. With support from Subaru of Corvallis, Heartland was able to cover the costs for 6 animal companions in the Safe Housing Program, providing a full 30-day term of boarding, medical care and, most importantly, peace of mind for the families who were reunited with their animal companions.

How to Make an Impact? Ask the Corvallis Team! - Kate C

Subaru of Corvallis Shares the Love in so many ways. Our programs have expanded into south Benton County. Transportation is required for our staff to adequately provide outreach services including helping kids get to and from our Therapeutic Classroom, and parents to have access to food, resources, and services. We were so honored to not only receive the 2019-20 Share The Love donation, but also a much needed food donation from their “Fill The Forester” campaign. As the year wrapped up, we were able to provide some holiday cheer and had a good start for the 2020 service plan. And then came March of 2020; everything changed. The pandemic has been especially hard for low income and marginalized families. Classes were canceled, home visits needed to be reinvented and families needed our services more than ever. When we received our Share The Love donation from Subaru, it was like a lifeline for our client families and our staff. We received an astonishing $26,233! The timing was impeccable! This wonderful support helped us to deliver over 300 food boxes, and more than 850 activity/educational packets to our families all over Benton County. Other funds were earmarked to help purchase books for the kids to help bolster early reading exercises, and to help cover operational costs for children’s therapy. Our local Subaru of Corvallis Dealer provides the type of local community support that is so impactful and this year especially, immeasurable! We are proud to partner with such a community-minded group of people lead by the General Manager, Dustan Simmons and Sales Manager Scott Goff! We thank you for helping the kids in our community get a great start in life.The Old Mill Center for Children and Families offers 6 programs throughout Linn and Benton Counties providing early education, prevention, intervention, mental and physical therapy to kids from birth to 18 and their families.

Subaru Makes a Difference in Our Community - Teagan O

I am an outreach and events coordinator at a small nonprofit called the Corvallis Environmental Center. We serve the community by providing nature-based educational programming to children and grow produce in our educational garden that is then donated to those in need. Subaru has been an invaluable partner and generous supporter over the years of this work that is so important to our community. They have always loyally supported our events through sponsorships and I can always call on them to help us promote our programs. Subaru has helped us achieve our goals of providing nearly 12,000 lbs of fresh, healthy food to struggling families every year, and providing quality, outdoor education to our futures generations! We cannot express enough how grateful we are for their support and how much it means to the community. Thank you Subaru of Corvallis!

The Steadfast Support of Subaru - Jennah S

Ever since I got my license, I'd dreamt of driving my own Subaru. I've always looked at Subaru as not just the car that gets you to whatever adventure you want to go, but as a symbol of a trustworthy company, creating vehicles in line with my outdoors geared mindset. Now, as an owner of a Subaru, I can get anywhere I want to go and I'm more of a believer than before. But, it's more than just the car itself, it's the character of the company. I work for a local, Corvallis, non-profit organization and organize multiple community events throughout the year. Although, with a small team and limited resources, we truly could not do the work we do alone. Subaru of Corvallis has stepped up to be a core partner of the Corvallis Environmental Center in 2018, supporting not just one but all of our events, and allowing us to better connect with the community to provide education, engagement, and inspiration. Our work focuses on making Corvallis a more healthy and sustainable place. With the incredible sponsorship from Subaru for all of these events, we are able to take our work where we want to go. Subaru has helped us to move forward, whether it be actual wheels on the road or community support for organizational growth, I still trust and appreciate their steadfast support tremendously. Thank you for all that you've done Subaru. For the places that you've allowed my adventurous, outdoors loving self to get to, as well as the achievements of the Corvallis Environmental Center that you've also helped us get to as well. We appreciate you so very much!

Corvallis Subaru - Innovative Way to support kids - Kate C

The Subaru of Corvallis team is just amazing! During the 2017-18 NCAA Women’s Basketball Season, the Subaru team notched a $5.00 donation for every assist that the Oregon State University Lady BEAVS had during their games. That generous donation tallied to a $3,000 contribution to the Old Mill Center for Children and Families. Over the course of the season, Subaru also sponsored 10-second video clips showcasing several local agencies who make a difference in the lives of children. These were played during the games. This was a very selfless act that exemplified the commitment to their local community that Subaru shows year round. The money raised for the Old Mill Center was earmarked for those programs that specifically work with children deemed at high risk for child abuse and neglect. Much needed supplies were purchased for the therapeutic classrooms as well as for in-home visits. These programs are for children from birth to 7 years old. Overall the Center provides prevention, intervention, therapy and early education to over 800 children annually, and touches the lives of over 2,000 children in the community. Support like this is critical to helping our children heal and our families thrive. Thank you Chip Edwards, General Manager and the team of Subaru of Corvallis! You continue to make a difference in our community.
