Supporting The Children - Susan G

For the fifth year, Subaru White Plains has named Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital (MFCH) as its Hometown Charity for the Subaru Share the Love Event. Patients and families, staff and leadership are enormously grateful to everyone at Subaru White Plains, a member of The Premier Collection, for this supportive partnership. During the 2021 campaign, more than $84,000 was raised for MFCH. Among the many priorities this funding enables is the expansion of our Level IV Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (RNICU). MFCH is home to the only Level IV Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (RNICU) in the Hudson Valley, serving the entire 6,200-square-mile area between New York City and Albany. As a Level IV facility, which is New York State’s highest clinical designation, we care for the region’s tiniest and sickest babies (neonates). The RNICU is part of Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital’s larger Regional Perinatal Center, which compassionately provides the highest-level of expert obstetrical and neonatal care for mothers and babies with the most complex health issues, including congenital heart disease needing neonatal surgery and other pediatric surgical demands. Each year, we care for more than 700 critically ill neonates. As a unique resource to the Lower Hudson Valley and beyond, we accept every patient who needs our care, receiving transfers from all Hudson Valley hospitals. The average length of stay for babies in the RNICU is more than 30 days, due to their extreme prematurity or highly complex condition. The RNICU also includes a human breast milk donor bank, is a leader in clinical and basic research advances, provides outreach education to improve access to care, and has an extensive long-term follow-up program to ensure all “graduates” have every opportunity to develop normally. Prior to the expansion, the RNICU had 49 neonatal beds, or isolettes, for these fragile infants. On a daily basis we have been at or above that number due to the high demand for specialized neonatal care in the region. The need for expansion was imminent. Work on the first phase of our RNICU expansion, which includes 4 new intensive care areas, two new nursing stations, and two additional family waiting areas, began early in 2022. Phase One has a total cost of $2.2M, and will be funded entirely by philanthropic support from our donors, including our partners at Subaru White Plains. Our heartfelt thanks and appreciation go to Subaru White Plains, The Premier Collection, and to all those who purchased a new vehicle from this dealership during the Subaru Share the Love campaign. Your kindness and thoughtful generosity support us as we ensure the health and wellbeing of our pediatric patients today, tomorrow and always. We look forward to the 2022 Share the Love campaign and appreciate the Premier Collection’s commitment to promoting the health of children across the Hudson Valley. Thank you from your Friends at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital!

Subaru White Plains x Paws Crossed - Julie P

For the fourth year, Paws Crossed Animal Rescue and Subaru White Plains have teamed up for #SubaruLovesPets month. Together, our objective we strive to achieve is becoming a much bigger resource to our community and beyond in solving the enormous problems of staggering pet overpopulation, homelessness and tragically high euthanasia numbers, while greatly bettering our abilities and capabilities for the comfort and well being of the pets in our care by improving our facility and programming. ‘Making our House Their Home Until They Find Their Own’ for the time the dogs and cats are in our care. Here is just one of our amazing tales of 2022. Please meet Maize. This adorable girl was found in a dump site in North Carolina, completely skin and bones. And… she wasn’t alone. She had delivered her seven babies in the dumps and was heroically raising them there, giving them all the nourishment she could! When they were rescued, Paws Crossed received an email about this horribly malnutritioned, tenderhearted girl and her seven little ones. It took no more than a picture, a mere glance, for us to fall in love! Thanks to the assistance of grants through Subaru, we were able to say “Send this family of 8 North!” Each of these sweethearts received the comfort and care they needed and they flourished. Momma Maize and the seven “Potato Puppies” (Au Gratin, Hash Brown, Scallop, Mash, Poutine, French Fry, and Tater Tot) had a huge fan club at Paws Crossed and we are pleased and proud to say, they have all gone on to find their forever homes! Jeremy Abramson and his magnificent team at Subaru White Plains are so much more than just community partners … they are the most incredible members of our Paws Crossed Family. Their deep capacity of compassion for Paws Crossed, as well as numerous other local organizations, cements their presence as such an integral part of our amazing community as a whole. For our pets, their support goes far beyond the month of October … the people of Subaru White Plains are heroes to these pets (and the people that love them) every single day of the year. With much gratitude and an abundance of respect, THANK YOU Subaru White Plains!

My Forever Car- Subaru Forester Sport - Glena B

About 5 years ago at my Grandmother's funeral in St. Thomas Jamaica. I was told about the Subaru, its efficiency, safety and also had the opportunity to experience this first hand. While home we toured the island and encountered in some places inclines that only a dare devil would love. Our driver who was once a Range Rover Sales Representative took us to the beach and traveled long distances quickly and efficiently and then bragged about the vehicle and stated he wouldn't invest in anything else but a Subaru. I wondered about the vehicle we drove in at the time and it was the Forester. I knew that I had to have this vehicle, not only for the incline that I now reside on but also for the recent harsh weathers . Fast forward Dec 2021 in faith I visited White Plains Subaru N.Y in Elmsford, not knowing what to expect. As soon as I walked in, I saw a Sales Representative & she seemed to be on her way to her office but she turned around immediately with a bright smile, greeted me and I felt right at home. I worked with Lena Martinez and her awesome team of Finance Managers and received my awesome Subaru Forester Sport in Jan 2022 . It was worth the wait and it really didn't take long to arrive. Lena was patient, kind, professional and very knowledgeable about the vehicle- did I also mentioned she knows a thing or two about them mechanically. She is super smart and my family and I were impressed. Now my daughters have made plans to drive my vehicle but that'll be a hard "NO" , love them dearly but we will work on getting them their own Subaru :-) We will be back. Thank You White Plains Subaru & Thank You Lena so much - AWESOME JOB.

Subaru Loves Pets - Paws Crossed Animal Rescue Inc - Julie P

This is the 3rd wonderful, life-saving year that Subaru, Subaru White Plains and Paws Crossed have partnered during October, for #SubaruLovesPets month. Not only does Subaru generously pledge and donate $100 for every single day of the month for one orphaned dog or cat that was adopted, they also team up with Paws Crossed to work with the ASPCA towards an incredible grant. This valuable funding goes towards the direct comfort and care of our pets and in preparing them for their forever home. This includes vet visits (spay/neuter and any procedures and any major surgeries needed), all age appropriate vaccines, all medications, microchips, food (including special diets) etc... This funding allows us to say "YES! We can help you", where others have not. The story of Aluli is one such life saving tale of a second chance at life: We received a call from our one of our partners in North Carolina saying they had an emergency situation. A heavily pregnant momma dog needed immediate help ... every shelter/rescue/foster was full and there was not where for this girl to go ... and she was on the brink of giving birth. How could we say no? Could you? By the next day Aluli was on a plane from N.C. to Westchester NY and by the following day Aluli had 8 beautiful, perfect babies (Apache, Cherokee, Cheyenne, Iraquois, Lakota, Navajo, Odawa and Sioux). This adorable family grew up at Paws Crossed. They received all the comfort and medical treatments they needed, but equally important, they received the love and the socialization that our awesome family of staff and volunteers always provide. All 8 babies were adopted in #SubaruLovesMonths and Aluli found her own forever home, that she so deserved, in November. The picture attached is of beautiful, ADOPTED, momma Aluli! Our mission statement is to 'Rescue One By One Until There Are None'. Sometimes when you rescue one ... you truly save so many more! Together, we shared so many fun and critical events in October. (1) First and foremost, we had 77 adoptions! 77 forever homes were created from our amazing partnership. (2) We shared a fabulous segment on Good Morning America with Subaru and ASPCA that aired on September 30th, gearing up for #SubaruLovesPets month. Both pups, Lion and Remington that were featured, were adopted in October! (3) Paws Crossed visited Subaru of White Plains for a wonderful day of sharing information about our rescue and showing off some adorable furry faces! (4) On Halloween we did a 'Fill the Subaru' campaign where our spectacular community came to Paws Crossed with donations of pet food and supplies and filled our President/CEOs Subaru to the brim! and (5) We shared some super cute social media posts throughout the month! We are so grateful that Subaru is such a compassionate and engaging member of our very special Paws Crossed family. But it is truly our orphaned pets that are the thankful ones for your big, kind hearts! Jeremy Abramson and his team at Subaru White Plains never cease to amaze us with their generosity, community support and their love for animals. They make a difference to so many people and organizations every single day. THANK YOU SUBARU! #WeAreFamily #TodayTomorrowTogether #OptToAdopt #OneByOne #UntilThereAreNone

For the fourth year Subaru White Plains has named Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital as its Hometown Charity for the Subaru Share the Love event. Patients and families, staff and leadership are enormously grateful to everyone at Subaru White Plains, a member of The Premier Collection, for this supportive partnership. During the 2020 campaign, more than $182,000 was raised for Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, which has been of enormous value in supporting our work during the COVID-19 pandemic. Reduced family visitation and a curb on in-hospital activities for our young patients demanded extra creativity and time from our staff who gave their all as they always do! Share the Love funds help us continue to provide lifesaving care for the most critically ill and injured children from throughout the Hudson Valley region. Our heartfelt thanks and appreciation go to Subaru White Plains, The Premier Collection, and all those who purchase a new vehicle from this dealership during the Subaru Share the Love campaign. Your kindness and thoughtful generosity support us as we ensure the health and wellbeing of our pediatric patients today, tomorrow and always. We look forward to the 2021 Share the Love campaign and appreciate the Premier Collection’s commitment to increasing its local donation share bringing the children’s hospital $450 for every Subaru sold during the campaign period. Thank you from your Friends at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital!

Together We Are Feeding Westchester - Marissa M

Feeding Westchester is so grateful to the Westchester Subaru retailers like Subaru White Plains for their generous support and participation in the Subaru/Feeding America Love Promise Campaign. As the county’s leading nonprofit hunger-relief organization at the heart of a network of nearly 300 community partners and programs, we are on a mission to nourish our neighbors in the fight against hunger. Last year, Feeding Westchester delivered 22 million pounds of food or 18.4 million meals through soup kitchens, food pantries, schools, shelters, residential programs, and mobile distributions. We are committed to creating a community where all people have access to the food they need today, and the fundamental resources to build a better tomorrow. Subaru’s nearly $20,000 contribution has helped neighbors like Lucy, a Yonkers resident, who lost her job because of the pandemic and never qualified for SNAP benefits. Lucy turned to one of our partner pantries, noting, “Everyone here is very helpful and nice and it’s been such a big help for my family. Whatever we get here that we don’t use, we share with our neighbors.” Thank you to our friends at Subaru White Plains, and across the Subaru organization! Together we are Feeding Westchester.

Generosity & Friendship - Amy P

I am writing to express how grateful we are for the donation of wonderful Subaru blankets for the women in our Women’s Residence. The generosity and friendship showed to us by Subaru White Plains lifted us up and provided comfort for women ages 20-90 that are working to make a better life. This kindness, part of the Subaru Love Promise program, truly demonstrates Subaru’s commitment to community. We truly appreciate your care for the women at the Residence. As we discussed, our Women’s Residence is the largest supportive housing residence in the state of New York, and the only one in Westchester County. Here are words recently shared by one of our residents: “I have a life again. I’m not lonely. I’m not hungry. I have a comfortable place to live, I have beautiful support, I have plenty of food and clothes on my back. I can afford to pay my rent. My day isn’t about survival anymore. My day is about living my best life. Happiness is my reality again.” We enjoyed meeting you and members of your team, and we look forward to inviting you to visit and tour the Residence when the pandemic allows. Warmly, Amy Price Chief Development Officer
