SUBMIT A STORY

Community

In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.

In 2020, Subaru and its retailers made a donation to Feeding America to provide 50 million meals to help feed people in need during the COVID-19 crisis,* making meals available at 199 local food banks across the country.

*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks.

Community

Environment

Subaru and our retailers are committed to protecting and preserving the Earth, not just by our words, but also by our actions.

Since 2018, as part of the Subaru Loves the Earth initiative, Subaru and retailers across the country have partnered with TerraCycle® and have collected over 9 million pieces of hard-to-recycle trash from their communities. Items such as snack bag wrappers, coffee cups, or used cabin air filters from service areas have been diverted from landfills and given a second life by TerraCycle when it is converted into durable furniture and other usable items.

Environment

Health

Subaru believes we all should have a chance to lead a healthy life. That's why Subaru and its retailers, like us, partner with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society® (LLS) and their local hospital or cancer treatment center to give warm blankets and encouraging messages of hope, written by retailers and Subaru customers in their stores, to support patients facing cancer. Through our partnership with LLS, we've supported nearly 300,000 cancer patients nationwide. We're proud to be LLS's largest automotive donor.

Health

Education

Subaru and its retailers, like us, are continuing our support of education and high-needs schools in our communities through Subaru Loves Learning(R) by providing teachers across the country with funding to purchase the school supplies and resources they know are needed to help students thrive in the classroom. Through our partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org, Subaru and its retailers will have supported more than 470,000 students nationwide and are proud to be their largest corporate supporter.

Education

Pets

Subaru believes all pets deserve a loving home. That's why Subaru and its retailers, like us, host adoption events and donate $100 to our partner shelter for every pet adopted during the month of October*. Through our partnership with local and national organizations, we have donated over $51 million, which has supported the adoption, rescue, transport, and health of over 420,000 animals. We're proud to be the largest corporate donor to the ASPCA.

*Subaru retailers will donate $100 for every pet adopted from partner shelters from October 1, 2023 through October 31, 2023 up to $3,100 per retailer.

Pets

The Subaru Share the Love® Event

Subaru and its retailers believe in giving back to our communities. That's why for every new vehicle sold or leased during the Subaru Share the Love event, Subaru and its retailers, like us, makes a donation to national charities that our owners care about and to over 2,100 local charities where Subaru owners live and work.

Now, after 15 years, Subaru and our retailers have donated over $256 million to charity all to give back and to make the world a better place.

The Subaru Share the Love<sup>®</sup> Event

How is Austin Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

At Austin Subaru, our Love Promise to the Austin area can be seen in the many contributions we've made to children's health, the arts, animal well-being, and more. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of the Austin community, but to serve it as well. "We are all About Austin!"

Love Promise Stories from Austin Subaru

Subaru and Austin Subaru believe in making a positive impact on the communities in which we live and work. We uphold that belief through our Love Promise Community Commitment. Every month, we select inspiring stories from customers and partners from around our area who strive to support our collective commitment and feature them here.

Alva's Success Story

Our team at Austin Pets Alive! is thrilled to share a heartwarming story about a sweet puppy named Alva. For over 12 years, Austin Subaru has played a prominent role in our mission and it's because of their support that we're able to tell inspiring stories like this one. Alva was diagnosed with a neurological condition that keeps her from being able to adequately control her movement, and as a result, she remained in a fearful state for most of the time. She spent over 500 days living at Austin Pets Alive!, and while we were doing our best to provide Alva with what she needed, she had been through a lot and needed extra care. Not only was she struggling with her condition, but in that 500 days she was adopted and returned to Austin Pets Alive! to no fault of her own which can be a very traumatizing experience. Little did Alva know, she was on her way to a brighter and happier future. After working extensively to treat her condition and build up her self confidence through various training programs, Alva was spotted on Instagram by an adopter and they began visiting her at APA! each day to build a trusting relationship with her. After two months of this, the adopter finally brought her home and Alva is currently living the amazing life that she deserves! While Alva's story is significant and holds a special place in our hearts, she's not alone in what she's experienced. Here at APA!, we regularly receive cats and dogs with medical conditions who are in need of treatment that other shelters cannot provide due to high costs. Oftentimes, we are their last hope and if it weren't for Austin Subaru sticking by us through all of these years, we honestly wouldn't be able to provide as many at-risk and overlooked pets with a second chance to find a loving home. 2023 was particularly special because not only did Austin Subaru support us as they've done for many years, but they pledged to have us as their Subaru Loves Pets Pillar Partner for the entire year. Through this year, we really strengthened our partnership more than ever before and we are so thankful that they have pledged to have us as their partner yet again in 2024. Thank you, Austin Subaru, for giving us the opportunity to tell wonderful stories like Alva's!

Beautifully Loved and Austin Subaru

Austin Subaru, thank you so much for sponsoring this year's Beautifully Loved Fashion Show! This event is everything to our team, and I'd like to take this opportunity to shout out Austin Subaru and provide some information about why their support for Beautifully Loved is so important. Here at Beautifully Loved, our mission is to provide care and empowerment to people struggling with chronic illnesses, as well as their family members. Not only are the illnesses tough, but the treatments that go along with them are time-consuming and energy draining, so that leaves little desire to put the effort in to properly care for themselves. For those caring for a family member with an illness, all of their energy is going into caring for their loved one, so the same issue applies to them as well. That is where Beautifully Loved comes in, because by providing experiences that promote wellness, beauty, and fashion for these special patients and their families fighting through hardship, we want to remind them that they are seen, valued, and overwhelmingly loved. We want them to know that, while they may not have the resources or energy to fully care for themselves, we are here for them and are always thinking of ways to bring them joy and confidence. Our annual Beautifully Loved Fashion Show is a fantastic way to recognize pediatric patients and help them shine from the inside out! Each model in the fashion show is a patient from Dell Children's Hospital, McLane Children's and other surrounding children's hospitals, and this event truly is the highlight of the year for them. Before they hit the runway, all of the kids are pampered with professional hair and makeup services, dressed in clothes from boutiques around Austin, and they get to do an exclusive photo shoot. This is all incredibly important because during these moments, they're not thinking about the cancer or other illness they're battling, and they're not worrying about the struggles they are going through in their day-to-day life. In these moments, they get a vital boost of confidence and are reminded of how beautiful, strong, and inspiring they are! A lot of time and resources are needed to make sure this event goes off without a hitch each year, and Austin Subaru has been a huge supporter in the years that we have been doing this event. Their team genuinely cares for these kids as much as we do, and having them by our sides through this has meant more than words can express. This year, Austin Subaru did a sponsorship of $5,000 for the Beautifully Loved Fashion Show, and we look forward to continued partnerships with them!

12 Annual APA! No Kill Anniversary Party

For over 12 years, Austin Subaru has been a huge supporter of Austin Pets Alive (APA!), a non-profit organization that rescues animals who are at the highest risk for euthanasia. These poor animals are innocent and fully capable of being part of a loving family; all they need is a little bit of support. Austin Subaru knows that APA! can't do all of this hard work on their own and that's why we've been committed to them for so long. We love their mission, and we believe it is our duty to support them in any way we can. In September 2023, APA! hosted their 12th annual No Kill Anniversary party, an amazing way for them to celebrate being the longest-running no-kill community in the country. The event featured live music, an adoptable kitten/puppy "petting zoo", and the announcement of which APA! dog or cat would wear the Mayor of Pawstin title! The Mayor of Pawstin represents a pet who has shown resilience in overcoming health struggles, is always loving and kind, and remains positive and strong in their journey to finding their forever home. This years finalists were General Erasmus Dickinson (cat) and Mindy (dog) - how sweet is that! This event was not only fun but also a great way for the community to come together to raise support and awareness for APA!. Austin Subaru was thrilled to sponsor this event with $15,000 with the intent of supporting these animals who so desperately need a helping hand. For our team, it's not about simply cutting a check. Rather, we can't help but feel a hit to the heart when we hear about these animals at risk of euthanasia, and we really want to see them thrive in healthy & happy living conditions. We are proud of our partnership with APA! and are thrilled to be part of their important mission. We only hope our donation to this event can make a real difference in a pet's life and inspire others to support APA's mission!

Songs of Hope 2023

This year's Songs of Hope event was an absolute success, and our team at Caritas of Austin is extremely grateful for the overwhelming support we've received from Austin Subaru! Since 2020, Caritas of Austin has doubled our impact, serving over 1,800 individuals in the Austin community who are experiencing homelessness. By having dedicated partners like Austin Subaru, we are able to help people get access to safe/affordable housing, nutritious groceries, education opportunities, and employment with livable wages - ensuring that each person we serve has a stable foundation so they may achieve holistic well-being. Each year, we host our Songs of Hope event benefitting the work we do at Caritas of Austin, and this is a super fun way for everyone to come together to learn more about our organization and support our cause. We really try our best to make the event as wonderful as possible, featuring live music, a silent auction, delicious bites, and personal stories shared by some of the people we've had the pleasure of helping over time. As our 2023 Songs of Hope Presenting Sponsor and Subaru Loves to Help Partner, Austin Subaru generously donated $25,000 to the Songs of Hope event, and they have helped ensure that we can deliver much needed resources to members who have experienced/are experiencing homelessness. As a key supporter of our organization, Austin Subaru has helped us provide people in need with over 500 months of rent, 224 move-in's and transitions out of homelessness into safe/affordable housing, 5,600 mental health counseling sessions, utility assistance for over 1,500 months, prescriptions for up to 2,000 months, and up to 112,000 nutritious meals in our Community Kitchen. Now, how incredible is that!? Just like our partner Austin Subaru, Caritas of Austin knows that our community is most vibrant when we come together to make a difference, and we are so excited for this continued partnership with a brand that is all about love and giving back to the community!

Austin Pride Festival/Parade 2023!

Participating in the Austin Pride Parade this year was an absolute delight for the team at Austin Subaru! It marked an extraordinary day of solidarity with The Austin Pride Foundation, an entirely volunteer-driven organization dedicated to educating, resourcing, and uniting the LGBTQ community here in Austin. At Austin Subaru, we firmly believe that every individual deserves to be accepted unconditionally, no matter their identity. The Austin Pride Foundation has, through its outstanding work, extended that message of acceptance to countless people in need, and we were honored to support them at this years Pride Parade and Festival. The Austin Pride Parade served as a vibrant, joyous platform to celebrate the incredible work carried out by this foundation. For us, it was an honor to express our support through a $25,000 sponsorship, but the excitement doesn't end there. The team at Austin Subaru was not content with simply signing a check, and it was imperative that we get involved with this special day that inspires so many each year. We hit the parade route with our Subaru Ascent, decked out so that it screams "PRIDE" when you see it. It was an exhilarating experience, and we had an absolute blast handing out signature Austin Subaru Pride merch to all of the attendees in the crowd. The day was not just about a parade; it was about coming together as a community to support a noble cause. It was about celebrating diversity, love, and acceptance. It was about standing up for the values that we hold dear. In the end, the Austin Pride Parade was a super fun and heartwarming way to show that, at Austin Subaru, we stand with The Austin Pride Foundation and the LGBTQ community. Together, we can create a world where everyone is celebrated for who they are and where love shows no boundaries!

Spreading Love to Caritas Community Kitchen!

Austin Subaru is proud to support Caritas of Austin, a non-profit organization acting as a beacon of hope for those struggling with homelessness in Central Texas. More specifically, the team at Austin Subaru got together to support Caritas' Community Kitchen which is more than just a place to prepare meals; it's responsible for nourishing homeless people who need it the most, because everyone deserves a nutritious and delicious meal, no matter what they are going through in life. Years ago, the team at Austin Subaru decided to join hands with Caritas of Austin and have been supporting their initiative ever since, but 2023 has been different and more special than any of the years prior. At the beginning of 2023, we pledged to have Caritas of Austin as one of our partners for the year, meaning we support them far beyond Share the Love events; rather, we are committed to serving them throughout the entire year! By supporting the Caritas Community Kitchen, we can provide a sense of dignity, belonging, and possibility to those who need all the support they can get. This organization gives so much help to the community, and Austin Subaru feels it is our responsibility to support them right back. As a result, the team at Austin Subaru did a $30,000 sponsorship for Caritas Community Kitchen, but it's crucial to remember what this sponsorship really means. It represents the promise of countless warm meals, the assurance of a safe space for those who have so little, and the belief that together, we can make a difference in the lives of those living amongst us in this community. We are honored to stand by Caritas of Austin as they continue their incredible work, and we look forward to a future where even more individuals have taken the path from hardship to hope!

Military Family Day at Candelight Ranch!

Our team at Candlelight Ranch is extremely grateful for the love and support Austin Subaru has given to our organization! I'm compelled to write about my experience with Austin Subaru, as their kindness has meant a lot to me, and I hope this story conveys our gratitude for them. For those who are not familiar with our work, Candlelight Ranch focuses on all-things nature because we feel it is so important to be well-acquainted with the environment we live in. We strive to deliver creative, nature-based activities in the beautiful Austin Hill Country, and to do this, we partner with non-profit organizations, schools, and community groups in order to provide interactive learning programs and experiences that will benefit children and their families. One of our many programs is the Military Families in Nature program, which Austin Subaru is generously sponsoring throughout 2023! This fun-filled day gives military families the opportunity to bond together through various collaborative activities, such as guided hikes, team building, low/high ropes courses, zip lines, canyon crawl, fishing, and therapeutic time together in nature. Oftentimes, military families sacrifice the luxury of bonding with loved ones in a meaningful way, so it means a lot that Austin Subaru is partnering with us this year as we help make a difference for these families. Military Day does not only include families of veterans/those still serving - we are here to give our love and support to those who have lost a loved one that served our country. Austin Subaru shares our passion for those actively serving, veterans, and those who have fallen, so this partnership has been incredible in every aspect. Additionally, Austin Subaru donated $20,000 to this program, which helps us so much in providing the tools and resources needed to make Military Family Day go off without a hitch. Candlelight Ranch will forever treasure this partnership, and we look forward to continuing to do great things with Austin Subaru!

Austin Subaru's Continued Support for The Dog Alliance!

On behalf of The Dog Alliance and Board leadership, my colleague Debi and I would like to thank Austin Subaru for enormously contributing to our programs this year! We were honored to have been selected as the 2023 Austin Subaru Loves Veterans Pillar. This alliance has exceeded our expectations as it's truly been a partnership rather than a company writing a check. Austin Subaru has been extremely involved in our cause for the past few years, and we feel lucky to have such a stellar relationship with them. Seeing the Austin Subaru name and logo on the Hounds for Heroes service dog vests has been fun as Panini, Finn, and Ginger have worn them all around Austin! The weekly Public Access Outings to locations including Whole Foods, the Metro station, Kalahari Resorts, Target, and many other businesses draw attention to the importance of service dog training to assist a military veteran. Our handlers and trainers enjoy answering questions from the public about what makes a service dog distinctive from a therapy dog or emotional support dog. It's an educational process and we know folks go away with a better understanding of the role of a well-trained dog. Austin Subaru's extended generosity in supporting Panini with her first litter of puppies is so appreciated! Her delivery date is targeted for mid-November...during Austin Subaru Loves Veterans Month! With an unprecedented demand for service dogs, the required growth of our program lies in producing an increased number of puppies bred specifically for service dog work. We are fortunate to participate with the International Working Dog Breeding Cooperative as a direct benefit of being 1 of only 144 Assistance Dogs International accredited organizations in the world. Together, we follow strict, ethical guidelines for breeding dogs specifically to be trained as service dogs. We are about to set off on a new adventure with our Puppy Whelping Center established to provide consistently appropriate puppies to enter our Hounds for Heroes and Train Your Own Service Dog programs. We're excited to share the energy and excitement with Austin Subaru and its affiliates in the coming months! All in all, Austin Subaru has done an outstanding job as our partner and we are so thankful for their support. From conducting activations for us, to supporting our organization across social media, to simply checking in on us to see how our team is doing and how the dogs are doing, it's amazing how much Austin Subaru really cares about The Dog Alliance. Additionally, we are grateful to be invited to the dealership to visit with their clientele and share information about our service dogs and our therapy dogs. This is an added opportunity extending beyond the generous funding which is invaluable!

Hounds for Heroes 2023

The Hounds for Heroes Program is an incredible way to support veterans, and our team here at The Dog Alliance is so grateful for Austin Subaru's support towards this cause! This year, Austin Subaru generously selected The Dog Alliance to be the very first Austin Subaru Loves Veterans partner, which means the world to us considering we need all the love we can get for our organization. For those who are not aware of what we do here at The Dog Alliance, we offer training sessions for dogs to ensure they are well-equipped to improve the lives of individuals and families in our community. We also offer various programs that focus on more specific groups of people in need, like our Hounds for Heroes program, which provides live changing service dogs for veterans and first responders who were disabled in the line of duty. Everybody deserves to have a companion by their side, especially our veterans who have sacrificed so much for the good of this country. To this story, we attached some photos of Panini, a black lab in training to become a veteran service dog. Panini has been in our program for quite some time, and all of the support towards Hounds for Heroes has contributed to her success. She is doing an amazing job, and she is on track to being one lucky veteran's BFF! Our organization is on the smaller side, so when Austin Subaru was eager to be part of our initiative, we were over the moon! What we love about Austin Subaru is it's never been about simply writing a check for them. They've always been happy to help us with whatever we need, like volunteering in the dog training sessions and sprucing up our outdoor scenery for us. For the Hounds for Heroes program, Austin Subaru did a $15,000 sponsorship, which has not only touched our hearts but has also transformed the lives of veterans and their faithful canine companions! Thank you, Austin Subaru, for your generosity and support.

RBI Summer Sponsorship

At Austin Subaru, we believe our children are the future and it is imperative that we invest all resources into their success. For this reason, we were proud to be the Summer League Sponsor for RBI Austin throughout the summer of 2023! RBI Austin is a local baseball league that has a mission to engage and aid in the development of Austin youth athletically, academically, and spiritually, empowering them to lead the transformation of their communities. When kids have strong support systems in their lives, they gain confidence in their potential to do incredible things, and that is so important for their growth. Children from under-resourced communities have a more difficult time finding sports teams that are affordable and accessible, so RBI Austin's mission is focused around providing support to children who need it most. As part of our initiative to supporting RBI Austin's amazing cause, Austin Subaru was proud to do a $15,000 sponsorship!

5th Annual Raise a Day for APA!

Austin Subaru has strongly supported us at Austin Pets Alive! for several years now, and we wanted to take a moment to come on here and express our gratitude for their generous sponsorship to our annual Raise a Day event! While we are in the business of saving lives and have a passion for doing this year round, we like to have a special day of giving for the animals here at APA! where we invite the community to contribute to our cause. It's also important that the community sees what impact we are making, so for Raise A Day, we give everyone a behind the scenes look at the various live saving programs we have implemented to make our shelter special. Raise A Day is all about getting the community involved in doing meaningful work that you can be proud of, and without the support of Austin Subaru, we would not have been able to pull it off as seamlessly as we did. Austin Subaru is passionate about giving back to the community and encouraging others to get involved in the local non-profit organizations, so having them by our side each year is so helpful. In addition to the work Austin Subaru put in to help us make this seamless, they provided a $2,500 sponsorship for Raise A Day! Thank you, Austin Subaru, for being such a loyal supporter of Austin Pets Alive!

Celebrating the First Annual Do Good, Feel Good Event!

From June 1st to July 4th, Austin Subaru was thrilled to host the first annual Do Good, Feel Good event benefitting some amazing nonprofits in our community. Throughout 2023, our team is committed to supporting 6 incredible organizations - Foster Village, Caritas of Austin, Austin Pets Alive!, Waterloo Greenway, Dog Alliance, and Communities in Schools. Foster Village is working diligently to provide foster children and foster parents with support, along with necessities they need for day-to-day life. Caritas of Austin is targeting the homelessness epidemic in Austin by providing people with the tools they need to attain education, employment, nourishing groceries, and a safe home. Austin Pets Alive! has been a partner of Austin Subaru for almost 15 years, and they are the reason so many innocent, sweet pets in Austin are saved from euthanasia each year. Waterloo Greenway is hard at work to preserve the green spaces and nature in Austin through their 1.5-mile park system. Dog Alliance is a smaller organization in the Austin area, but they are mighty as ever! They utilize well-trained dogs to improve the lives of families, and through their Hounds for Heroes program, they focus on training/pairing service dogs for veterans and first responders who were disabled in the line of duty. Last but not least, Communities in Schools has a mission to surround students with support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve incredible things in life. While completely different from one another, all of these charities are working hard to improve different aspects of our community, and we are so thankful for this! Not only was Do Good, Feel Good an amazing way to give back to these wonderful causes, but it provided an opportunity for the community to get involved right along with us. What's really cool about this is it was similar to a mini Subaru Share the Love® Event . For every new Subaru sold in June, Austin Subaru donated $50 to the client's organization of choice. Afterwards, everyone was given a coin to place in the box of the organization they chose. We understand that opening this up to everyone beyond just our clients was super important, so we had an online voting portal that allowed people to cast their honest vote on who they felt should be our Love Promise partner. It's true that when you do good, you feel good, and we're delighted to say that the first annual Do Good, Feel Good event went off without a hitch! We are so grateful for our amazing 6 Pillar Partners and everything they do for our community.

Phoenix's Triumph over Parvovirus

On behalf of everyone at Austin Bulldog Rescue, thank you to our friends at Austin Subaru for helping a sweet little puppy in need! Phoenix is a French Bulldog puppy who was diagnosed with Parvovirus, and she has been fighting through tough obstacles ever since. As she moved through treatment, it was discovered that the catheter placed in her leg was not managed properly, which caused a serious infection to arise. Parvovirus is a potentially fatal disease on its own, so adding this infection to her fragile little body was extremely heartbreaking for all of us at Austin Bulldog Rescue. Being that we are a smaller organization, we were not sure how we were going to get the resources needed to get Phoenix her treatment. While we certainly were doing what we could, it wasn't enough and it felt like Phoenix's illness was progressing at a rate we couldn't keep up with. This out-of-control feeling is something I would not wish on anyone. Thankfully, the news of Phoenix's dire situation reached the compassionate team at Austin Subaru. Their eagerness to help meant the world to us, and they provided us with news that would change Phoenix's life forever. They told us that they wanted to donate $9,000 towards the Parvovirus vet bills & treatment. This lifted such a huge weight off of our shoulders, and words cannot describe how relieved we were to hear that this adorable puppy would get another shot at life! While Phoenix's condition was on the uphill for a while, she recently had to begin a stronger round of antibiotics due to the infection traveling to her ulna. She is under close observation, and Austin Subaru has been amazing at sticking by our side. With their support, we are able to have peace of mind and put all of our focus into helping Phoenix recover. She even has a group of French Bulldog buddies that keep an eye on her and give her lots of love. We are eternally grateful for Austin Subaru's willingness to support an organization in need!

Raise a Day for APA!

Austin Subaru is a longtime partner of Austin Pets Alive! (APA!), a no-kill animal shelter in Austin, Texas that saves animals most at risk for euthanasia. They also work to locate animals to foster homes and get them paired with their forever homes. In June, the team at Austin Subaru was proud to support Raise a Day for APA!, an annual day of giving where APA! provides an inside look at the various lifesaving programs that make their shelter special. They made this event super easy to support, as just $25 would provide a week's worth of milk for a whole litter of kittens! Austin Subaru loves pets, and we're so happy that APA! has events like this each year to raise support for all the animals in their shelter. In an effort to support Raise a Day for APA!, Austin Subaru was thrilled to provide a $4,000 sponsorship, which is enough to save a critically injured animal with medical/surgical support, provide basic care for a dog or cat, vaccinate 2 litters of puppies, save the life of one dog or cat with daily necessities, and provide a kennel that shelters 13 dogs per year!

Growing the Village is Sweet!

Austin Subaru is a proud supporter of Foster Village, a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to supporting foster families by meeting urgent needs, providing educational and emotional support, and advocating as a collective community voice for children. The team at Austin Subaru is a huge fan of the work Foster Village has done over the years, and we are thankful to have them as the Subaru Loves to Care® partner in 2023. Throughout the month of June, Austin Subaru was proud to sponsor Growing the Village is Sweet, an event that raises funds and awareness for Foster Village by hosting lemonade stands in the community. Those who participated were provided with a lemonade stand kit filled with all the supplies needed to create deliciously sweet, ice-cold drinks for the scorching Texas heat. These kits were provided by Austin Subaru and Foster Village, and each one came with two kids' t-shirts, lemonade supplies, and an educational pamphlet that explains foster care in a respectful and kid-friendly way. Hosting these lemonade stands was a great way for families to get involved in the community and support Foster Village. The opportunities to support this event were endless, as participants didn't have to host a lemonade stand to be part of the cause. Simply visiting one of these stands and getting a cold glass of lemonade raised support for Foster Village, as all funds earned go towards their mission! Additionally, local businesses could get involved by selling lemonade-themed merchandise. Austin Subaru believes that everyone should have the opportunity to support great causes like Foster Village, so this event was awesome because it put a fun, easy, and delicious twist on doing good for the community. To extend the support further, the team at Austin Subaru was thrilled to do an $8,000 sponsorship for Foster Village's amazing work! Thank you to everyone who participated in the Growing the Village is Sweet event!

Revving Hearts and Saving Lives, One Blood Drive at a Time!

The phrase 'not all superheroes wear capes' rings true, as a simple act of kindness has the remarkable power to save lives. On May 26th, Austin Subaru had the amazing opportunity to partner with We Are Blood, a local blood donation organization, to host a transformative blood drive! We Are Blood set up a mobile unit at Austin Subaru to ensure a seamless and convenient experience for donors. While many of the donors were Austin Subaru team members, we reached out to our community and encouraged everyone to come give blood if it was a possibility for them. Additionally, any customers we had in the dealership had the opportunity to donate blood if they chose to, and many did! Austin Subaru's bustling dealership transformed into a haven of hope and altruism as community members from all walks of life gathered to contribute their lifesaving gift. Austin Subaru's team and We Are Blood volunteers worked harmoniously to ensure a smooth flow of donors, addressing any concerns and making each participant feel comfortable throughout the process. This blood drive not only highlighted the importance of giving blood but also emphasized the power of collective action. The team at Austin Subaru is grateful for We Are Blood's assistance in making this a seamless day, and we are thankful for everyone who pitched in with giving blood! Austin Subaru looks forward to doing more activations like this in the future that will support the community.

Celebrating Hardworking Teachers!

Teachers work tirelessly to set their students up for success, and it's imperative to show them how much they are appreciated. Unfortunately, there are too many cases where teachers do not receive the love they deserve, and the team at Austin Subaru believes something should be done about that. On May 12th, Austin Subaru was excited to host an appreciation lunch for the teachers at Wooten Elementary School! As a school located in an economically diverse area, Wooten Elementary needs all the support it can get. This appreciation lunch was Austin Subaru's way of saying 'thank you' to these incredible teachers. Let's be honest, who doesn't love being thanked with delicious food? On this day, team members from Austin Subaru delivered authentic pizzas from DeSano Pizzeria, as well as pasta salad, Greek salad, and quality desserts from Central Market. Wooten Elementary is located just around the corner from Austin Subaru and DeSano, so the pizzas were practically fresh out of the oven when they arrived. Not only was this lunch for teachers, but it was also for everyone at the school who is contributing to the success of these students, including principals, counselors, and custodians. In addition to lunch, each staff member at Wooten received a gift card to Target. Working in the education field has its own set of challenges and obstacles, and it's important to remember that gestures like this have the power to make a real impact on someone's day. Austin Subaru has previously collaborated with Wooten Elementary School, and we were thankful for the opportunity to support them again with this lunch. Austin Subaru encourages everyone to exude kindness, positivity, and support for teachers and anyone working in education. They do so much for our community, and they deserve to be appreciated!

Paddle for Puppies 2023!

Austin Subaru has supported Austin Pets Alive! (APA!) for over 10 years now, and in 2023, we are thrilled to have them as our Subaru Loves Pets® pillar partner! May 7th was a day filled with excitement and anticipation, as we got to host our annual Paddle for Puppies event benefitting the Parvo ICU at Austin Pets Alive!. Parvovirus is a highly contagious viral illness that is passed between puppies and it causes acute gastrointestinal issues. The side effects are pretty unpleasant for these sweet little puppies with this disease, and without proper treatment, those with Parvo will likely pass away. Austin Subaru believes that if there is an issue within the community, it is our duty to take action. As a result, the team at Austin Subaru has held the Paddle for Puppies event each year for the past 12 years! This incredible event took place at the picturesque Rowing Dock on Lady Bird Lake, and participants had their pick between a canoe, kayak, or paddle board to float down a 5 mile adventure. Everyone was welcome to bring their dogs and Austin Subaru took proper measures to ensure each dog was safe and could enjoy this event with everyone. As participants glided through the tranquil waters, they couldn't help but feel a sense of unity and purpose. Each stroke they took was a reminder that they are doing their part in helping vulnerable puppies struggling with parvovirus. Austin Subaru has always held this event close to their hearts, and it was an honor to be able to do this for APA! in 2023. This year also marks the most successful year the Paddle for Puppies event has ever had, as we were able to raise over $28,000 for the Parvo ICU at APA!. 100% of this money will go towards saving puppies with parvovirus, and Austin Subaru is grateful to have been able to hold this incredible event. We cannot wait for Paddle for Puppies 2024!

Volunteer Day at Austin Pets Alive!

As a longtime fan of Austin Pets Alive!, Austin Subaru is proud to have them as their Subaru Loves Pets® partner in 2023. Since 1997, this incredible organization has been working diligently to save the lives of animals at risk for euthanasia. They officially opened the doors to their shelter in 2008, and since that time, they have managed to save over 100,000 pets! Austin Subaru has been supporting Austin Pets Alive! for over 10 years, and we love seeing all of the progress they have made in our community. On May 3rd, the team at Austin Subaru got together for a volunteer day, updating and improving the facilities at the Austin Pets Alive! shelter on Cesar Chavez St. So many sweet, vulnerable animals are living at this shelter right now and Austin Subaru feels it is their duty to help Austin Pets Alive! maintain their space. In addition to volunteer day, Austin Subaru was thrilled to present APA! with all of the money raised for them during the 2022 Subaru Share The Love® Event. We are excited to say that 2022 was the most successful Share the Love year for APA!, as we were able to raise $125,000 for them! Austin Subaru is so grateful for the opportunity to be partners with this incredible organization.

It's Off to the Races with Austin Subaru!

In April 2023, Austin Subaru was proud to be part of the EASB Off to the Races event at Camp Mabry! Genny Hardeman, owner of Austin Subaru, is the President of Elizabeth Ann Seton Board (EASB) and her personal passion and dedication to this organization have managed to trickle down into the rest of the team. The EASB Off to the Races event is held in support of Seton Fund, an organization in the community dedicated to serving the most vulnerable and advocating compassion. They have also been an integral part in supporting the expansion of Ascension Seton Medical Center Austin (ASMCA). The EASB Off to the Races event touches the lives of many, as it aims to raise funds and awareness for mother/baby services and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at ASMCA. Each year, over 5,000 babies are born at this hospital and one out of every four of them will require critical care in the NICU. Needless to say, it is imperative that they have the tools they need to provide essential care to babies and support to mothers. The team at Austin Subaru is passionate about giving back to organizations that are really making a difference in our community, and they felt honored to attend the EASB Off to the Races event. This beautiful day was held at Camp Mabry in Austin, Texas, and it was a great way for everyone to come together in support of the community's well being! As guests started arriving, the atmosphere crackled with excitement as they knew the money raised at this event would go towards providing crucial support to mothers and their newborns. Over $1.3 million was raised for this incredible organization, and as the Presenting Sponsor, Austin Subaru was thrilled to contribute $50,000 to this wonderful cause! Austin Subaru recognizes how lucky they are to be able to support this wonderful cause, and we look forward to supporting their amazing work in the future.

Volunteer Day at Foster Village and Share the Love® Check Presentation!

Austin Subaru loves supporting the community whenever the opportunity arises, and we are absolutely thrilled to be partnering with Foster Village in 2023! This amazing organization has emerged as a beacon of hope for children in the foster care system. With their mission to provide support to foster children and the caretakers who selflessly take them in, Foster Village has become an indispensable resource in the community. By offering practical assistance, emotional support, and educational resources, Foster Village aims to create a stable and nurturing environment for children in need. In April, the team at Austin Subaru was thrilled to spend a day volunteering at Foster Village. The first task at hand was to stock the shelves with essential items that would provide comfort and reassurance to these vulnerable children as they transition into foster care. Austin Subaru volunteers worked diligently, organizing the shelves with care and attention to detail. From clothing and toiletries to toys and books, each item was carefully selected to bring a sense of belonging and normalcy to children entering unfamiliar circumstances. Over $80,000 was raised for Foster Village during the Share the Love event, and Austin Subaru had the opportunity to present this check at the volunteer day. These funds given to Foster Village will be put towards them continuing their amazing work and purchasing necessary items for children like beds, car seats, clothing, school supplies, and more. Austin Subaru is inspired by the Foster Village team's commitment to providing unwavering support to children and caretakers alike. The work they do is impeccable and we feel lucky to have the opportunity to partner with them this year!

Greening the Scene: Celebrating Waterloo Green Day!

Environmental sustainability is so important, and Austin Subaru is passionate about making positive impacts in the community. When we learned about Waterloo Green Day, an event promoting eco-friendly practices and green living, we absolutely had to support. This event is held by Waterloo Greenway, an organization hard at work to preserve a 1.5-mile park system that will soon be home to a wild array of natural and cultural destinations. They are also a Pillar Partner of Austin Subaru for 2023, which means we are committed to supporting them throughout the year & especially during Subaru Loves the Earth® month.

Volunteer Day at Waterloo Greenway

In April 2023, the team at Austin Subaru had one heck of a time getting their hands dirty to help Waterloo Greenway maintain their beautiful spaces! Waterloo Greenway is a park system that stretches 1.5 miles with the power to bring the Austin community together. Once it is completed, Waterloo Greenway will be home to several natural and cultural destinations, so it is imperative to help them keep their spaces healthy. In celebration of Subaru Loves the Earth®, Austin Subaru was thrilled to spend a day volunteering their time to beautify Waterloo Greenway's spaces. Our planet works hard to care for us and provide us with a beautiful place to call home, so we feel it is our duty to care for it whenever the opportunity arises. Rally the Ambassadog was there to support us as well - playing with sticks, running around, and stretching out in the sunlight is a very important task! Waterloo Greenway is also one of Austin Subaru's Pillar Partners for 2023, and we are grateful for the opportunity to support them for Subaru Loves the Earth month!

Austin Subaru Hosts the Caritas Community Conversation

Austin Subaru has always been a proud supporter of the Austin community, and in 2023, we are thrilled to be partnering with Caritas of Austin! As part of this partnership, Austin Subaru hosted the Caritas Community Conversation, an event involving conversations of importance and interest in our community, including how to train on the job. Caritas of Austin is hard at work to end the homelessness epidemic in Austin, and they go above and beyond to support those in need. One of the many amazing things they do is help people transition out of homelessness and assist them in getting housing/employment/etc. This event was such a great way to support Caritas of Austin, and Austin Subaru felt honored to provide the venue and be part of the Caritas Community Conversation. As the event drew to a close, people were leaving with new connections, new knowledge, and a renewed sense of hope for the future of this community. The team at Austin Subaru is so grateful for this opportunity to support!

Flying Kites For a Great Cause!

Austin Subaru is thrilled to be partnering with Communities in Schools all throughout 2023! This year, we were proud to be the Pet Zone Sponsor at the 92nd annual ABC Kite Fest, an Austin tradition that benefits Communities in Schools and Moss Pieratt Foundation. Communities in Schools provides all students, regardless of race, gender, ability, and background, with what they need to reach their full potential in school & life. Moss Pieratt Foundation works to fund research and promote awareness regarding the sudden unexplained death of infants. Kite Fest is an amazing way to support two organizations that work hard to bring awareness to real issues that are happening in our community. As the Pet Zone Sponsor, Austin Subaru had an activation that included a lounge, play area for dogs, pet caricature artist, balloon animal artist, and a coloring book wrapped Subaru Ascent for kids to color on with dry erase markers! Rally, Austin Subaru's Ambassadog, also attended the event and loved all of the attention he received from everyone. To get into the full Kite Fest spirit, we flew our Austin Subaru astronaut kite along with all of the other awesome kites. All in all, this was such a fun way to celebrate two wonderful organizations, and Austin Subaru is so thankful to have been given the opportunity to support. As the Pet Zone Sponsor, Austin Subaru supported ABC Kite Fest with $30,000!

Austin Subaru Amplifies Austin

It is so important to give back to the community and support all of the amazing organizations that work hard to support us.

Volunteer Day at Caritas of Austin & Home Supply Drive!

The homelessness epidemic is a real problem, especially in largely populated cities like Austin, Texas. In 2023, the team at Austin Subaru is proud to be partnering with Caritas of Austin, an incredible organization that is working tirelessly to prevent and end homelessness in the Austin community. More often than not, those who are homeless are forced to go without something most of us tend to take for granted in our lives - a freshly cooked meal. On February 22nd, the team at Austin Subaru spent the day at Caritas of Austin to serve fresh, delicious, well-balanced meals to those in need. There is such an amazing feeling that comes with helping people, and we believe everyone deserves to have access to nutritious meals. In addition to this, the team at Austin Subaru and Caritas of Austin hosted a donation drive for essential household items like cookware, cleaning supplies, and bedroom/bathroom necessities. All items that were donated were turned into welcome baskets for people who are transitioning out of homelessness into an apartment, and to help them turn their new space into a home. Austin Subaru is passionate about supporting the community, and we have been huge fans of Caritas of Austin for quite some time. We are so thankful that they are giving us the opportunity to partner with them this year!

Resilient Reese

At Austin Subaru, we have a passion for supporting the organizations in our community that work tirelessly to support us. One of those incredible organizations is the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and Austin Subaru was recently given the opportunity to support one of their warriors - a little girl named Reese. Austin Subaru was completely moved by her story, and feels as though it should be shared with everyone. Back in 2020, Reese began experiencing recurring fevers and feeling ill. Her parents, Katie and Ben, immediately got in contact with the pediatrician to see what was going on. At the time this was occurring, the COVID-19 pandemic was still new, so appointments by car visit were the only option. For a while in the beginning, doctors were not able to provide Katie and Ben with an exact answer as to what was happening to their daughter. After many more visits to the doctor, a large tumor was found in Reese's chest and her parents were forced to hear some of the toughest words for a parent to face - "Your child has cancer." Reese was very ill when she first began treatment, but thankfully, the team at Dell Children's got the process going right away. Despite the numerous doctors visits, operations, and treatments, Reese maintained incredible strength and positivity as she battled cancer. She soon became "Resilient Reese" due to her ability to fight something as brutal as this with a bubbly smile on her face. Finally, all of Reese's hard work paid off - in 2022, she celebrated her 4th birthday AND last round of chemotherapy! This was an incredible milestone for Reese and her family, and the team at Austin Subaru absolutely had to celebrate this amazing little girl. On Reese's 4th birthday, the team at Austin Subaru decorated their cars with birthday posters, streamers, and balloons and held a parade in her neighborhood. Reese absolutely loves parades, so it meant a lot to do this for her. Reese's mom also told us that she loves ice cream, so the team at Austin Subaru rented an ice cream truck to be at the park Reese was having her party at! All in all, this was a beautiful day to celebrate Reese's resilience through her experience with cancer. Austin Subaru is incredibly thankful to have been given this opportunity! We encourage you to watch this video to learn more about Reese's story - it truly is amazing!

Beautifully Loved Fashion Show 2022

Every child deserves to feel like a shining star, especially in moments where it feels as though all hope is lost. Beautifully Loved is an organization that strives to improve confidence and self-worth for families dealing with pediatric cancer and other chronic illnesses through experiences of wellness, beauty and fashion. This year, Beautifully Loved held their 8th annual fashion show to showcase some amazing & brave kids in the Austin community! This was a spectacular event that was aimed to make all of the kids feel like the superstars they are. All of the kids were provided with custom fashion to wear while they walked the runway, and they were given the opportunity to have their hair and makeup done! While Austin Subaru supports the Beautifully Loved organization as a whole, the 8th annual fashion show, in particular, was a meaningful event because we understand the tremendous impact it had on these children and their families. These kids are fighting battles that no child should have to face, and they endure a ton of pressure on a day to day basis. Despite this, every one of those children has maintained an immense amount of strength and that is truly inspiring to us at Austin Subaru. They deserve to feel like the amazing kids that they are, and the Beautifully Loved fashion show provided them with that moment to shine. Plus, when a child feels supported in their life and confident in their own skin, they are more likely to thrive in everything that they do and exude positivity back into their community. All of that being said, Austin Subaru was proud to support this beautiful event with a $5,000 sponsorship! We cannot wait to see the amazing things that these kids accomplish in the future!

Supporting Central Texas at the Mill Scale Cookout

Austin Subaru is proud to support the Central Texas Food Bank, an amazing organization that works with food donors, financial supporters, and volunteers to support people in Central Texas who don't have access to food. Another key way to support this organization is through events, which is precisely what the Mill Scale Cookout did in 2022! This wonderful event was hosted by Mill Scale Metal Works, and it featured delicious bites from exclusive chefs and live music for everyone to enjoy. A portion of the proceeds were given to the Central Texas Food Bank, which makes for a fun and collaborative way to support a great cause! Austin Subaru is a huge fan of the Central Texas Food Bank, so they were delighted to support the Mill Scale Cookout with a $5,000 sponsorship!

Going Green with Austin Subaru

At Austin Subaru, we understand how crucial it is to care for the planet that works tirelessly to support us. For this reason, we were proud to sponsor the Glow in the Park event with a $20,000 donation! The purpose of this event was to maintain vibrancy and health in the Waterloo Greenway Conservancy, a 1.5-mile park system working to bring the Austin community together. In addition to this, the Glow in the Park event advocates for educational programming and community events that are held in the park. Overall, this organization does a lot of incredible work, and Austin Subaru absolutely had to support them! The Glow in the Park event was a wonderful evening for everyone to come together in support of such an incredible organization, and Austin Subaru is thankful to have had the opportunity to give back to the Earth!

Supporting Central Texas Children in Need

Austin Subaru is a proud supporter of Communities in Schools of Central Texas! This wonderful organization has a mission to provide aid to children in Central Texas that have things standing in their way of learning, such as poverty, homelessness, hunger, and ongoing health needs. Each year, Communities in Schools holds its annual Food for Thought event, a fantastic gathering aimed at supporting children in Central Texas that need our help. Our children are the future, and it is imperative to support them in any way we can. All in all, the Food for Thought event was a great opportunity for everyone to come together to celebrate the success of Communities in Schools students and raise funds for dropout prevention initiatives. The team at Austin Subaru is passionate about supporting hardworking organizations like this, so we were thrilled to contribute with a $7,500 sponsorship! Thank you, Communities in Schools, for doing everything that you do for the children in Central Texas.

Lighting the Night with Austin Subaru!

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is leading the way in finding the cure for cancer, and Austin Subaru has been a huge fan of their work for quite some time! In November of 2022, Austin Subaru was thrilled to be part of the Light the Night Walk, an event that brings light to the darkness of cancer and aims to replace feelings of despair with hope. Each year, Light the Night showcases an Honored Hero, a cancer patient or survivor that has inspired LLS staff, volunteers, and participants. This year's Honored Hero was a 4-year-old girl named Reese, who has been a warrior through cancer and is celebrating her final chemotherapy treatment! Austin Subaru absolutely adores Reese and loves everything that LLS does, so we feel lucky to have been part of the Light the Night Walk. This event was such a beautiful way to bring the community together to support those currently fighting the disease, and remember those very special people we have lost. LLS is such a vital organization in our community, and as much as the team at Austin Subaru loved attending this event, we simply had to support them even further. As a result, Austin Subaru was delighted to do a $15,000 sponsorship that will go towards supporting cancer research!

Successful Subaru Loves Pets 2022

October was a month full of happy adoptions, and thanks to Subaru Loves Pets, full of fun event activations, too! Austin Pets Alive! (APA!) worked with Austin Subaru to create some fun events that showcased all of the amazing animals in APA!’s care. While adoptions were, of course, encouraged throughout the month, our big focuses together were on events taking place on October 22nd, National Make A Dog’s Day! We had both a special event at our main facility and an adoption event at the dealer’s showroom! Subaru Loves Pets takes special care in giving the “underdog” some extra love and attention. Every pet in APA!’s care comes to us from euthanasia lists at other shelters so technically, every pet at our organization could be seen as an underdog; however, we do have a population of pets that might fit more traditionally in the underdog category - pups in wheelchairs! Whether dogs were born with a disability, were hit by a car or some other circumstance brought them to need a wheelchair, APA! believes these pets deserve the opportunity to find their adoptive homes. On National Make A Dog’s Day, together with Austin Subaru, we hosted an event that invited the community to come meet our wheelchair population. This event gave potential adopters the opportunity to ask questions about the logistics of bringing a dog with a wheelchair into their family and to witness demonstrations of getting a dog in and out of a wheelchair! Potential adopters walked away from the event recognizing that the realities of having a dog in a wheelchair aren’t as intimidating as they thought! A few of the dogs that attended the event were Susky, Mindy, Gavin, and Mobley! Along with the “wheelie” event at the shelter, we also set up a special adoption event at Austin Subaru! Since Austin traffic can be a deterrent for many, it was beneficial to set up adoptions “north of the river,” giving potential adopters who live in the north Austin area easier closer access to pups available for adoption! The event had a happy ending for two pups who were born in the APA! Marketing team’s office - Miss Nevada and Miss Florida! These siblings were two of ELEVEN puppies born to Miss America! Soon after the puppies were born, the whole family went to an amazing foster home where the puppies had the chance to receive the nourishment and relationship of mother and siblings. Once old enough, the puppies began going to their adoptive homes - Miss Florida and Miss Nevada being the last of the group. These lucky pups not only found their loving homes at this adoption event, but were adopted together and will therefore have the joy of their sibling for the remainder of their lives! It is always such a joy to work with our community partners and Austin Subaru has always been an amazing champion of our mission! Subaru Loves Pets month was an absolute success!

Austin Pets Alive! No Kill Anniversary

Austin Subaru is a longtime supporter of Austin Pets Alive, a rescue organization that creates a safe place for animals at high risk of being euthanized. They also encourage people to adopt or foster these pets, and Austin Subaru is a huge fan of their work! In October 2022, APA! held their 11th annual No Kill Anniversary to celebrate being the longest-running no kill community in the nation. This incredible event included live music, adorable pets, and was such a great way for everyone to come together to raise funds for APA! so they can continue bettering the lives of pets who need it. Austin Subaru loves supporting this organization, and they were thrilled to contribute with a $5,000 donation!

A Concert Under the Stars

Austin Subaru loves Caritas of Austin, and they were excited to support their annual Songs of Hope event in September 2022! The purpose of this is to raise funds for Caritas to continue their work to prevent and end homelessness in Austin. Bryan and Rebecca Hardeman, owners of Austin Subaru, are longtime supporters of this organization, and their personal dedication has now turned into a passion shared by the Austin Subaru team as a whole. The Songs of Hope event was an amazing evening under the stars that included a live performance from Bob Schneider, silent auction, and opportunity to Fund the Mission. As a way to show their support, Bryan and Rebecca Hardeman matched $100,000 of Fund the Mission gifts, which go 100% towards Caritas of Austin! This organization holds a special place in Austin Subaru's heart, and it felt so great to support them at this incredible event.

Y'all Means All

What a joy it was for Austin Subaru to be included in the Austin Pride Parade! This was such a fantastic day to support The Austin Pride Foundation, a completely volunteer-run organization with a mission to educate, resource, and connect the LGBTQ community in Austin. Every single person deserves to be accepted, no matter who they are, and they have helped many people through their amazing work. The Austin Pride Parade was such a fun way to celebrate this incredible foundation, and Austin Subaru felt honored to support it with a $10,000 sponsorship. Even better - the team at Austin Subaru walked the parade with an Ascent (completely decked out for Pride!) and had such a fun time handing out "Y'all Means All" bracelets to everyone the crowd. Overall, this was a super fun way to come together in support of a great cause!

An Amazing Day at Shoal Creek Social

In September of 2022, Austin Subaru was proud to sponsor the Shoal Creek Social event! This is geared to aid the Shoal Creek Conservancy (SCC), a fantastic organization with a mission to maintain the Shoal Creek watershed. Along with this, they support the 11 mile trail along the Shoal Creek corridor, which is the oldest trail in Austin and must be preserved at all costs. Finally, SCC also provides year-round public programming on conservation and clean-up. There is a bounty of great things to say about this wonderful organization and Austin Subaru feels honored to support them. On September 3rd and 10th, the team at Austin Subaru hit the trail to help SCC make this day special. This was SCC's largest fundraising event of the year, and it had plenty of free, family-friendly activities, refreshments, giveaways and tours. Additionally, Austin Subaru was happy to contribute a $5,000 donation to help SCC continue doing their great deeds in the community!

Thank You to our Veterans!

Our veterans have sacrificed so much for the people in this country, and it is imperative to give back to them whenever the opportunity arises. The Purple Heart Integration Project (PHIP) is a non-profit organization that provides sustainable housing, training, and community integration to our nations wounded warriors, and they recently held their Hell on Reels event in Georgetown, Texas. This was a silent auction featuring a viewing of reels from the Vietnam war, and funds were raised for the PHIP to continue helping veterans recover, learn, and prosper. All in all, this was a fantastic day for everyone to come together to celebrate some amazing people who have done so much for us. Austin Subaru has a passion for supporting wonderful causes like this, and they were delighted to provide a $10,000 sponsorship!

Jordan's Sweet New Ride.

Austin Subaru loves giving back to the helpful and compassionate people in our community that do so many great things. Jordan is one of these very special individuals. As a foster mom who provides a safe house for anybody in need, Jordan works tirelessly every single day to be a support system and give people everyday necessities that, without her generosity, would be very difficult for them to access. She is a kindhearted person that feels as though everyone deserves a place to call "home". Jordan does an outstanding job of taking care of everyone, but there is one thing she desperately needed - her very own car. Knowing how passionate Austin Subaru is about the Love Promise initiative, Riptide and Foster Village reached out to Austin Subaru and asked if there was anything we could do to help Jordan out. The answer was an immediate yes. After figuring out a few logistics, Austin Subaru was happy to gift an amazing 2019 Subaru Ascent to Jordan! In preparation for Jordan's arrival at the dealership, the Austin Subaru team gathered in the showroom to give her a warm welcome and to thank her for everything she does for our community. Pure joy, gratitude, and excitement radiated from Jordan and her family, and it really was such a heartwarming experience to be a part of. Now, with her sweet new ride, Jordan can do all of the things she's been wanting to do for quite some time, such as giving her family a reliable source of transportation. From everyone at Austin Subaru, thank you so much Jordan for doing what you do. We really hope you are loving your Ascent! 

Paying a Special Visit to Leukemia Patients at St. David's!

Austin Subaru loves supporting the people in our community who need it most. In June of 2022, the crew at Austin Subaru had the incredible opportunity to partner with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society at St. David's Healthcare! This involved visiting leukemia patients currently being cared for at St. David's and hand delivering some super soft blankets to help them stay comfortable. Everyone was instructed to wear a mask, stay sanitized, and maintain social distance so that the patients were able to have happy visits while being safe. Staying in a hospital receiving treatment can feel as though you are isolated from the outside world, and it's not uncommon to feel lonely. The Austin Subaru team felt as though it was important to pay a special visit to these people to remind them of how loved and supported they are! While Austin Subaru is a long-time supporter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, this day was particularly special. Seeing the smiles on everyone's faces was so heartwarming, and they were all the sweetest people in the world! Austin Subaru is thankful to have been given this opportunity, and we cannot wait to continue supporting LLS in the future.

An Incredible Opportunity for the kids at RBI Austin!

Recently, Austin Subaru did a $3,500 sponsorship for RBI Austin Youth's 18U Regional Team! RBI Austin is an incredible non-profit organization whose main goal is to engage and develop inner-city Austin youth athletically, academically, and spiritually, empowering them to lead the transformation of their communities. They also work diligently to ensure that kids have a stable mentor in their lives, sports are accessible and affordable to all, people are connected through teams and collaborative work, and the gap is closed between the lower and middle class. Since doing this amazing work, RBI Austin has received many stories from parents and coaches about the impact that being part of a team, growing confidence in a skill, and finding a mentor has had on these kids! Overall, there are 1,400 kids enrolled in the summer programs at RBI Austin, and Austin Subaru was obliged to support them with this donation!

Volunteer Day at Austin Pets Alive!

In June of 2022, the team at Austin Subaru was proud to support Austin Pets Alive! with a volunteer day as part of the Share the Love event! This involved repainting the adoption center, beautifying the Parvo units, and building an enclosure that will serve as a shaded area for APA! employees to see incoming animals. The purpose of this is to provide a nice place for the pets to live as well as a cleaner-looking place for guests to come and view what APA! has to offer. There are a lot of things APA! needs help with, but they don't have nearly enough volunteers for everything that needs to be done. As a very loyal and longtime supporter of this incredible organization, Austin Subaru was quick to offer a helping hand! All in all, this was a fantastic experience for the Austin Subaru crew and everyone had a really fun time while supporting a good cause. In addition to this volunteer day, Austin Subaru was proud to provide an $80,000 donation to Austin Pets Alive! We are so thankful for everything they do for the pets in our community. 

Paddle for Puppies 2022... WE'RE BACK!

May 15th, 2022 was a very special day for the team at Austin Subaru because for the first time since 2018, the Paddle for Puppies event was back in person & on the water! Presented by Austin Subaru, this extraordinary event took place at Rowing Dock on Lady Bird Lake, and it is intended to raise awareness and funds for the Parvo Puppy Program at Austin Pets Alive! Parvo, or "Canine parvovirus", is a highly contagious virus that affects a dog's gastrointestinal tracts. It is extremely painful for a puppy to go through and can be lethal. Austin Pets Alive is doing what they can to help these pups recover from the disease, but they need our help. For this reason, all proceeds from the Paddle for Puppies event went to the Parvo Program at APA! On this beautiful morning, participants got to choose between a canoe, kayak, or paddleboard to take on the lake and have an amazing time while supporting a great cause. Additionally, the blue algae was not at a dangerous level, so people were more than welcome to bring their furry friends on the lake with them! Paddle for Puppies is Austin Subaru's favorite annual event to host, so it was really good to be back this year. As a result of this glorious day, Austin Subaru was able to raise over $25,000 for Austin Pets Alive!

Next, we will be preparing for the TAAPS tournament on April 2nd in Waco! We will also be recruiting and training next year's team. We so are excited to see what the future holds for the MegaKyntes! Thank you again, Austin Subaru, for helping us have this amazing opportunity. We would not have been able to have this experience without your love and support! Sincerely, The MegaKyntes 11093

Austin Subaru Supports: Austin Restaurant Weeks!

Let's be honest - having the ability to go to the grocery store is something you likely take for granted. Shopping for food is, for a lot of us, a normal and effortless part of life, so of course we don't tend to give it much thought. Unfortunately, 1 in 7 Central Texans do not have the privilege of making grocery shopping part of their normal routine. Austin Restaurant Weeks is a fundraiser for the Central Texas Food Bank, and they have a mission to defeat the hunger crisis affecting thousands of people in Central Texas! This two-week-long dining attraction features specially-priced meals and drinks at dozens of bars and restaurants throughout the Austin area.

Titan the Loving Three-Legged Dog

If you met Titan, you’d remember Titan. This big and gorgeous boy is goofy, resilient and full of love. Titan came into Austin Pets Alive!’s (APA!) care in the summer of 2021 in need of extensive medical care after suffering abuse. He had every reason to be closed off to people, but instead, put his trust in his new temporary home at our shelter. After a few weeks in our care, it was determined that Titan would need to undergo an amputation of one of his front legs due to irreparable nerve damage. This strong boy quickly began his recovery process and made a name for himself among staff and volunteers for being a kind, gentle, silly and snuggly soul. Near the end of October, Titan found a home to call his own. A home with two doggy friends and a place where he feels safe and knows he is loved and cared for. While his family still calls him Titan, they also gave him another name - Titus. A dog like this buddy deserves two strong names! We had the opportunity to catch up with Titan’s new family to hear how he’s been adjusting. It seems that he quickly got comfortable and “doesn’t really know that he only has three legs” which is made evident by his “shoulder checks” to his large Great Pyrenees playmate during their “ruff” and tumble games. In fact, these boys have so much fun and Titan/Titus doesn’t seem to have an off button so quiet time was instated in the home. After meals and some play, the pups go into their kennels for 30 minutes of quiet time. This extra sense of structure has really helped to ground our loving tripod and given him even more sense of security. Not only did he become fast friends with his dog siblings, Titan has created a super fun game for the whole family! He likes to take his humans’ shoes outside - never chewing on them, rather simply creating a silly game of hide and seek! His humans love how funny and affectionate he is! Dogs like Titan depend on APA!’s “safety net” programs to ensure they receive the care and life they deserve. And APA! depends on the generosity of our community to support our programs so that we can give pets hope! Community partners like Austin Subaru are paramount to the impact we can have and help make surgeries like the one Titan needed, possible. The generous sponsorships that we receive from Austin Subaru allow our programming the opportunity to give underdogs hope. Dogs (and cats) that have no other place to turn, who just need a little extra TLC, come into our shelter to receive the care they need in order to be adopted into loving homes. Titan's story is just one example of the hundreds of pets that are touched by Austin Subaru's generosity. Sometimes, people feel sad for animals that have lost a limb, but these surgeries not only alleviate pain and help heal the past. For Titan, coming into APA!’s care and receiving an amputation then finding his loving home, he’s finally able to start feeling whole again.

Rose's New Ride

Rose has overcome a lot in her young life, including abuse and neglect and years in and out of the foster care system. With the odds stacked against her, Rose found a way forward to independence. She graduated from high school at 16-years-old and has since gone on to accomplish so much with the financial support, mentoring, and health care services of organizations such as Step Onward Foundation. Rose is currently employed full-time and is a sophomore at a local community college. Even with her busy schedule, she continues to volunteer and help others who share similar stories as her own. "I felt like the stars aligned when Todd called," said Chris Hudson, General Manager at Austin Subaru. "When someone tells you a truly miraculous story about a truly miraculous person, and you are able to help, I believe you are obligated to. This is what our company and our team are all about. More than just selling and servicing cars, we have a responsibility to our community and we take that seriously. When we learned that Rose's dream car was a green Subaru Outback, we couldn't wait to make that dream a reality. It's simple, if you have been blessed, you should be a blessing to others. "Our mission is to create a world where young adults and families who are at risk of homelessness reach their full potential as healthy, happy and independent adults," said Todd Young, co-founder and chairman of Step Onward Foundation. "We do this by filling gaps in needed support through our services and programs. Many young adult survivors of homelessness do not have access to reliable transportation which is a significant barrier to overcoming homelessness. This car is an incredible gift to give to a strong and resilient young woman on her journey to independence."

Drive-Thru Donation for Caritas of Austin

Austin Subaru feeds their Local Heros

Austin Subaru Pup Love!

I have been debating about getting a new car for the last year but kept having one issue after another during the pandemic. I finally decided the time was right and set up an appointment to get my new Crosstrek when I was walking my little pup and he was attacked by a neighbor dog requiring surgery. I called to cancel but Dean offered to do all the paperwork online then drive down with my new Crosstrek. While that was thoughtful and above and beyond, it was the card and dog toy that he brought for my dog Peanut that really touched me. He took the card around the store and everyone wrote sweet messages of encouragement to Peanut. They even offered to make him a pupaccino if he came and visited! The personal messages meant the world to us! It has been a tough year for everyone so it meant a lot to feel supported during such a big purchase.

The loss of the “Love” of my life!

I purchased my first Subaru in 2017, an Outback 3.5R. Immediately I feel in “Love” with this car. You see, I’m visually impaired and this little beauty has everything I needed to keep me driving safely. This past year has been very hard on all of us, but especially the medical community. I am a critical care nurse and I have had very little time, if any, this past year. My career had a slight turn and I agreed to do a gig in Michigan to administer the Covid vaccine but I needed to be there pretty quickly. This meant getting my little black beauty a quick little check up as she does have 94,000 miles (I love driving her!) After the oil change, my service tech notified me that they found a little transmission fluid and it needed to be diagnosed. I immediately scheduled her for the first available appointment which was one week away. I brought her back and was put into my rental-a Subaru Ascent. The Ascent had everything I needed and also the power I loved with my Outback, but I wanted to keep my little beauty forever! I was informed by Sunday that my baby was going to need a new transmission and some work done on the steering column. I now had to make some decisions. I NEVER planned on getting rid of my little black beauty as she was supposed to go to my grandson, and I absolutely “Love” that car! Besides, Subaru doesn’t make an Outback with a 6 cylinder anymore, so even more reason to keep her. However, I needed to be on the road by Thursday to start my new job on Monday. I had purchased the extended warranty, so everything was covered but it would never be done in three days. I made the decision to trade her in that night. I called to speak to a sales associate. Not only did Aryon stay late to start the process, he came in on his day off to make the sale possible the next day. Long story short, I was put in my new Subaru Ascent Limited by Tuesday afternoon and was well on my way by Wednesday night, earlier than planned. Austin Subaru went above and beyond my expectations and although I literally cried the day I had to leave the “Love” of my life behind, I was overjoyed with my new Ascent! She was just what I needed-safety, speed, style, and seven seats! Just the right amount of space for the grandchildren! Although she will never replace my little black beauty, she is a beautiful new addition to the family😘 Thank you to the entire team at Austin Subaru!!! Forever a Loyal Subaru Owner, Roni H. RN

From an Injured Bird to Ladybird: A Parvo Survivor

“When she first came to us, she seemed so fragile and delicate, like a wounded bird. As she started to recover, she developed this very graceful gait and play style, so she went from an injured bird to a ladybird and the name Birdie just stuck.” Hilana, now renamed Birdie, is a sweet black and white border collie mix who came to Austin Pets Alive! at the beginning of October 2020. When Hilana arrived at APA! she was immediately diagnosed with parvovirus and admitted to our Parvo Puppy ICU where she spent a week being treated. Parvovirus is a highly contagious virus that rapidly infects the dividing cells in a dog’s body, most severely in the intestinal tract. Soon after winning her battle against parvo, Hilana continued treatments for other diseases, such as distemper, in foster care. By mid October, Hilana was well enough to be made available for adoption and quickly found someone who wanted to make her a part of their family. Hilana’s sweet brown eyes in her adoption profile photo made for love at first sight for her adopter, Emily. When she first stepped into her forever home she was, in Emily’s words, “so fragile and delicate, like a wounded bird.” Hilana had difficulty walking and suffered from seizures, but in her pain she still cuddled and loved on her new family. As Hilana began recovery, Emily and her family watched her blossom into a healthy, energized, jubilant puppy. Only 6 weeks after her initial admittance to the shelter, Hilana appears to have fully recovered! She loves to play with her 90 pound dog brother, Beaumont, until they both pass out, and she is quickly learning new tricks like sit, stay, and fetch! We are so happy APA! was able to provide Hilana with the care she needed to overcome her diseases and find her a loving home! In the past, any puppy that entered a shelter in the Central Texas area sick with parvovirus, or even suspected to be, was typically immediately euthanized. Since 2008, APA! has offered an alternative to euthanasia for these vulnerable pups, like Hilana, giving them a second chance at a happy, healthy life. In the past 12 years APA!’s Parvo unit has treated and saved around 5,000 dogs, and in recent years treats about 500 dogs from all over Texas each year. Austin Subaru has been an integral part in our lifesaving work via monetary sponsorship to hosting adoption events and helping to spread the message to give the "underdog" a much-deserved second look. This year has been such an unknown, but Austin Subaru's support has been unwavering. The work APA! does at our Parvo unit would not be possible without gracious business sponsors such as Austin Subaru! They have been a long time supporter of APA!’s mission and the support provided allows our innovative programs the opportunity to save lives like sweet Hilana’s.

Paddle for Parvo Puppies: Quarantine Edition

Paddle for Puppies is an annual event that provides financial relief for the Parvo Puppy Program. This year, Austin Subaru, Austin Pets Alive!, and Rowing Dock came together to find a way to continue to support this program while faced with restrictions due to not only Coronavirus, but also Blue Algae in the lake that is toxic to dogs. Paddle for Puppies: Quarantine Edition was a digital campaign aimed at selling limited edition Paddle for Puppies shirts to raise funds for Austin Pets Alive!. Despite the challenges, Austin Subaru was able to raise $20,000 so that Austin Pets Alive! can continue to give puppies affected by parvovirus a chance at life.

KGSR's Woofstock

Back in 2015, the Austin City Limits Radio staff decided to brainstorm the best ways that they could help Austin animal shelters. Because so many of the ACL Radio team had adopted furry best friends at a local shelter, they really wanted to find a way that we could give back to these incredible organizations. ACL Radio decided to do what they do best: throw a concert! But in lieu of purchasing tickets, concert go-ers would need to make a donation to one of the three top Austin animal shelters. It's called Woofstock and it's an epic weekend at Oskar Blues Brewery Austin with live music, great food, and perfectly brewed craft beer.

Feeding Austin During COVID-19

In conjunction with Subaru's national partnership with Feeding America, we hosted a canned food drive in our showroom & service lounge! Customers and employees were encouraged to drop off canned good items throughout May and June to help support our local Austin food banks. Times are difficult for so many people during this worldwide pandemic and the food pantries are experiencing long waits and record-breaking lines across the nation. While Subaru of America feeds our nation, we pledged to do our part to feed Austin. We partnered with our friends at Caritas of Austin to support their in-house Food Pantry & Community Kitchen, located right here in downtown Austin. The Food Pantry at Caritas of Austin strives to ensure that their clients have access to healthy groceries as they transition out of homelessness toward stability. And the Community Kitchen provides a hot meal every Monday-Friday to approximately 250 individuals in need. We proudly donated over an entire Outback, loaded down with donated canned goods, to Caritas of Austin that will go towards keeping the people in our city fed and healthy during these uncertain times. This was one of our most successful food drives yet and we look forward to the next opportunity to help feed our community.

Customers and employees were encouraged to drop off canned good items throughout May and June to help support our local Austin food banks. Times are difficult for so many people during this worldwide pandemic and the food pantries are experiencing long waits and record-breaking lines across the nation. While Subaru of America feeds our nation, we pledged to do our part to feed Austin. We partnered with our friends at Caritas of Austin to support their in-house Food Pantry & Community Kitchen, located right here in downtown Austin. The Food Pantry at Caritas of Austin strives to ensure that their clients have access to healthy groceries as they transition out of homelessness toward stability. And the Community Kitchen provides a hot meal every Monday-Friday to approximately 250 individuals in need. We proudly donated over an entire Outback, loaded down with donated canned goods, to Caritas of Austin that will go towards keeping the people in our city fed and healthy during these uncertain times. This was one of our most successful food drives yet and we look forward to the next opportunity to help feed our community.
