Subaru Helps Feed AZ at United Food Bank - Laura O

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, United Food Bank has seen a major increase in the need for food assistance in our community, and as many as one in six Arizona families has struggled with hunger. In March, five Subaru dealerships in Arizona came together to build 710 emergency food bags for United Food Bank: Subaru Superstore of Chandler, Subaru Superstore of Surprise, AutoNation Subaru Scottsdale, Peoria Subaru, and Camelback Subaru. Each emergency food bag provides about 14 meals to families in need. And with Subaru's support of Feeding America food banks in 2021, United Food Bank will be able to provide about 150,000 meals for Arizonans in need. Thank you to these Subaru teams and Subaru Love Promise for supporting Feeding America food banks and helping us feed families throughout the East Valley and eastern AZ!

Arizona Friends of Foster Children packing party - Rob D

On April 15th the Arizona Friends of Forster Children Foundation held its semi annual packing party at the Subaru Superstore of Chandler. The event was held in the main showroom, and allowed volunteers from the organization to join with Superstore and Subaru employees to put together care packages and encouraging letters to foster children studying for their final exams. A total of eighty one packages were made and readied to be sent out to encourage and help the students finish the year strongly. This is the third year that the groups have partnered together for this event, and we are already looking forward to another packing party in December for fall final exams. A big thank you to everyone involved, and best of luck to the students on both their exams and in the future.

Subaru Made 34 Dog's Day at AAWL - Melissa S

Thank you to Subaru for saving the lives of dogs and cats. At the Arizona Animal Welfare League this October, 2020 we were able to have light shine in on 34 dogs as they found their forever home and had their adoption fee covered thanks to you Subaru. We are so grateful for these partnerships and have appreciated all of the support over the years from Subaru Superstore of Chandler. One particular dog, named Sunshine has the toughest battle, even before she made it to our shelter, but thanks to our community and Subaru, she now is in her forever home and will be loved and cared for. Sunshine was one of nearly 30 other dogs rescued from a hoarding situation by the Arizona Animal Welfare League. Her conditions when we found her were rough. The animal urine situation in the home where she was found was so severe that the uric acid burned her fur and damaged skin around her eyes. The damage could possibly be permanent. She’s on pain medication to help with her hip issues, and she’s getting stronger every day. Her medical expenses were taken care of by the AAWL Medical Miracle Fund, which helps offset the costs associated with medical procedures that go above standard vaccinations and spay and neuter. This Great Dane, Sunshine, didn’t let her terrible situation cloud her outlook on life. For her new family to have the relief of her adoption fee taken care of so that they can continue to care and heal her is all they ever wished for. Thank you again to all of you at Subaru who support our dog and cat lifesaving efforts.

Consistent support when it was needed the most! - Erika K

The Subaru Superstore of Chandler is an invaluable support to Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation (AFFCF). AFFCF is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the self-esteem and enrich the lives of children in foster care in Arizona by funding activities, education and other needs that provide them with quality experiences while they live through very difficult circumstances. AFFCF is incredibly grateful for the Subaru Superstore of Chandler's support both through Share the Love and in the midst of COVID-19. When it was needed the most, the Subaru Superstore of Chandler provided extra support in two significant ways. One of the populations that AFFCF supports are young adults who are aging out (or have aged out) of foster care and are pursuing their educational and career goals. This population was drastically impacted when classes abruptly shifted to online formats and many found themselves unemployed from jobs they had held either on campus or in the service sector. As AFFCF worked alongside other organizations to help address these young adults' basic needs, the Subaru Superstore of Chandler was there to help. Their entire staff went a step above to collect food for the Basic Needs Drive that AFFCF organized in partnership with Thrive Arizona. The food they collected supported young adults who needed extra help during the COVID-19 crisis. Many of those served were part of AFFCF's employment and career development program (Keys to Success) or college students who are recipients of the AFFCF Post-Secondary scholarship. As time went on and students adjusted to online classes, the Subaru Superstore of Chandler continued their commitment to support AFFCF's Post-Secondary scholarship students by providing funding for end-of-semester care packages. Care packages provide encouragement for final exams and let students know that others are cheering them on. While the Subaru Superstore of Chandler was unable to host a care package "packing party" with volunteers at the store as they did at the end of the Fall 2019 semester, it was still wonderful to receive Subaru's support. All of the AFFCF Post-Secondary scholarship recipients (73 in total) received (or will receive) a care package filled with snacks, candy, a Starbucks gift card, socks, and a note of encouragement. Receiving the care packages, especially during this time, meant a lot to the students. As one student wrote: Thank you so much for the care package! I just received it today. It is so amazing to be thought of and cared for during this time. Thank you for your constant support! The thought means so much to me and the hand-written note was a pleasure to receive. Thank you to the organizations that make this possible! AFFCF truly appreciates the Subaru Superstore of Chandler's continued support and especially thanks Lisa Cvijanovich, who always goes above and beyond.

Subaru Superstore of Chandler wants to thank all our customers, vendors, staff and the local community for participating in our Subaru Loves Pets event.

Subaru Loves Learning with Knox Gifted Academy - Michael W

Subaru Superstore of Chandler was so fortunate to get involved again this year with Knox Gifted Academy for our annual "Subaru Loves Learning" event. Our clients and employees donated over 200 books to Knox Gifted Academy on October 11, 2019. The books were picked up by the Dean of Students and the Student Council President...it was so exciting presenting them with the books and to have them in our store.

With more than 700 K-6 gifted students, their vision is to enhance their lives through our core values: seeing the possibilities, acting with empathy, and succeeding as a KGA team.

KGA continually seeks to redefine and redesign innovative instructional strategies, collaborate and network with schools across the globe, and connect with educators that see the possibilities in children as risk-takers, creative thinkers, and “wonderers” of the world.

My Hot 2001 Forester - Penelope J

Family visiting from the east coast and I were stuck in traffic on the 101 at afternoon rush hour. Phoenix hit 103 degrees and the engine temp was moving up.I poured in a couple bottles of water and called Chandler Superstore. Subaru Service arranged for me to bring her at 7 the next morning, when it was cooler. That was Friday and they found her (original) radiator had to be replaced. It had to be ordered, but Monday morning she was fixed up and ready to go for another 19 years. PS thanks for yummy breakfast while I waited.

In partnership with Subaru of America, Subaru Superstore of Chandler selected the Chandler Education Foundation as one of the 2019 recipients of the "Share The Love" event. On Monday, March 25, 2019, we presented the check to Chandler Education Foundation in the amount of $20,805.12. Below are some comments from the teachers who received the Lifelong Learning Legacy Grants. From the "Share the Love" event "I am one of the lucky CEF Lifelong Learning Legacy Grant recipients. Thank you for helping me with funding that will help me continue with National Board Certification. National Board Certification helps me to learn and continually reflect on my practice, and I can say it has been the best professional development. As educators, we encourage our students to be lifelong learners, and I believe we need to practice what we preach. Thank you for your support and for believing in me. I am very grateful." Karla P. 6th Grade. "Thank you so much for contributing to the Lifelong Learner scholarship. I applied for the scholarship to pay for my test in National Board Certification in Special Education. Through this process of completing National Board Certification, I have learned so much about my students and my teaching. It has made me more reflective and digs deeper into my lessons for our students on IEP’s. I look forward to continuing the learning process for myself as a learner and for our students in Chandler Unified School District. Thank you again. Have a great day." Rachel C.

Subaru Loves the Earth / April 2019 - Michael W

The Subaru Loves the Earth initiative continues in April and showcases our promise and commitment to the environment. The Subaru Loves the Earth initiative is an ongoing program throughout the year, which shows our commitment to the environment. The United States generates about 230 million tons of trash annually—and less than a quarter of it gets recycled. The only way to intercept hard to recycle items before they reach the landfill is to collect and recycle them to create something new. Subaru retailers and TerraCycle are continuing our partnership to intercept common, hard to recycle items, give them new life, and turn things like snack bags into usable items like park benches, bike racks and even playgrounds, which can be donated back to local community partners. By supporting environmental causes were helping make our world a better place to live and raise our families.
