Love Promise Stories from Pape Subaru

Subaru and Pape 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

Pape Subaru Children's Charity - Elizabeth P

Each year Pape Subaru partners with Spurwink to provide gifts through the holiday season. Spurwink’s hard-working, dedicated case managers each have 20+ families they provide services for. These families are battling homelessness, mental illness, asylum, or just overall poverty. The case managers select from their families and ask the kids and adults to provide a list of things they need and want through the holidays. They then anonymously provide the lists to Pape Subaru who then distributes them to Pape Subaru employees, families, friends, and customers. These lists consist of items such as winter apparel, toilet paper, toys, socks, hats, gas cards, and toiletries. The volunteers this year totaled 50 people!! Pape Subaru was able to sponsor a total of 20 families which amounted to 81 individuals!!

Marnie Finds a Home - AHR - Margaret H

Marnie is a five year old Havanese mix. She arrived to Almost Home Rescue from our partner rescue in Louisiana. When they saw her sitting in their local shelter, they just knew that they needed to help her. We are not sure what happened to Marnie to cause her paralysis in her rear legs. She was left at the shelter like this with no visible injuries and no notes to tell her story. Marnie has a very sweet temperament with other dogs and humans. She does not see herself as a special needs dog. She can get around by propping herself up on her front legs. She can create a lot of momentum and can go quite far and almost seems to prefer being self-sufficient. Marnie also has a wheelchair that she uses to get around better. She does not have control of her bladder and wears diapers. This girl is the sweetest, most snuggly, happy girl that does not let her mobility issues slow her down one bit. She is quite capable and able and nothing gets her down! She is strong and determined. Marnie is very fortunate to be adopted by a loving family that takes in special-needs dogs. Marnie is so lucky as she will be getting three fur siblings all with different needs. We are so very pleased that we were able to find Marnie the special family that she deserves! From her adopters: "She is a special, sweet and loving dog and deserves a great life. Her adaptability is incredible and her spirit is strong." Thank you, Subaru, for supporting Almost Home Rescue!

Loves learning - Katie P

The Subaru Loves Learning event allowed Pape Subaru to partner with Skillin Elementary school. This school houses over 600+ students in our community. A large sum of students are learning with English as their second language. As Pape Subaru toured the school with the Principal, Bethany Connolly, the students are polite, and have the largest smiles on their faces. The recent staffing shortage the school has been experiencing does not stop this school from providing top notch care and fundamentals for their students. Skillin Elementary expressed their gratitude, explaining the value the money has towards their school. Pape Subaru is honored to partner with Skillin Elementary!
