Subaru shows the love! - ALISON F

Our Subaru retailer - Colonial Subaru - has been a wonderful supporter of Harley's Haven Dog Rescue. Not only do they share and promote our dogs that are available for adoption, they also help us in the local community by coming to a free pet food pantry and vaccine clinic we were part of in a very underserved area of Philadelphia. Drew Wilson and Erin Smith came to help at our last pantry/clinic in October 30th. They generously brought dog toys to hand out and they jumped right in to help distribute dog and cat food, collars, leashes, and more to pet owners in need.

Committed to serving the local community, Eric Stamps, president of Colonial Subaru in Feasterville, PA, made a donation to the Neshaminy High School cheerleading team to help support their fundraising efforts.

Volunteering at our local Senior Center - Erin S

In a continual effort to support the community, a group of Colonial Subaru employees volunteered their time to spruce up the landscaping around the perimeter of the Neshaminy Activity Center, our local senior center. The Colonial team spent the afternoon cleaning out the beds, weeding, mulching, and trimming the existing plants and shrubs, which helped beautify the exterior, making it more welcoming to those who visit the center. Robin, one of the people who runs the senior center, was so appreciative of the work completed by the volunteers. This is one example of Colonial Subaru working to make a positive impact in the community.

Helping Philly's Pets & the People Who Love Them - Lauren H

After an unprecedented year, PAWS wanted to give back to the local businesses who have been steadfast supporters our lifesaving work. With the help of our sponsors, Subaru of America and Annamaet Petfoods, we were able to raise vital funds for homeless pets in need while also celebrating our beloved community who has been through so much. Every spring we host an event called “Philly Loves PAWS” in which businesses throughout the city support PAWS by donating a percent of their day’s profits. However, after the pandemic shutdown last year we realized that those businesses who supported us needed our help, so we decided to flip Philly Loves PAWS on its head by hosting a week long “PAWS Loves Philly” (PLP) event. Every day from May 17-23, we featured a group of PLP partners, totaling 64 businesses, and encouraged our followers to support them: by buying gift cards, shopping online, ordering food for pick-up or delivery, or even dining onsite safely. Businesses who were able, contributed raffle items, adding to the festivities and allowing us to raise additional funds. The event received a great response from businesses and PAWS friends alike! It was such a beautiful and touching week-long celebration and we are grateful to Subaru for enabling us to show the love! Through event promotion and the amplification of our story by supporters and businesses, we were able to engage new donors and advocates of our lifesaving mission, inform pet owners in need and prospective adopters/fosters about the resources and opportunities to help that we offer, and support and celebrate the small business community who has been so supportive of us over the years. THANK YOU SUBARU OF AMERICA FOR HELPING US MAKE PHILADELPHIA A PLACE WHERE EVERY SAVEABLE PET IS GUARANTEED A HOME!

Colonial Subaru Supporting Local Schools - Margie M

My name is Margie McCurdy and I am the Yearbook Director at Poquessing Middle School in Feasterville, PA each year our graduating 8th graders are provided a free yearbook, which is an exciting and cherished part of their "moving up to high school" festivities. Unfortunately, a few weeks ago I was informed that the source that normally provides the yearbooks would not be able to do so this year. To say the least I was heartbroken because I knew our 8th graders would be very disappointed. In desperation, I decided to send letters to local businesses explaining our situation and asking for assistance. With the current economic situation that has impacted everyone, I asked if they would be able to provide $60 to cover the cost of 4 books. I had hoped to get a reply from at least half of the businesses, but then I received a phone call that changed everything. Mr. Eric Stamps of Colonial Subaru Feasterville called, and we discussed the situations with our students. He said he wanted to help our 8th graders keep the "normal" in their lives. He has 4 children of his own and he knows how important "normal" is right now. Then he said "I will write you a check for $1800 to cover the cost" At first, I wasn't sure I heard correctly, but then he repeated himself. You could have knocked me over with a feather! I was literally speechless! This was not something I had expected. The kindness that Mr. Stamps had shown our students is overwhelming and certainly will not be forgotten. "Love is now bigger than ever" is a statement that means so much to Poquessing - and now we think of Colonial Subaru when we say it as they are now part of our family.
