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

Helping the Children - Susan G

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

"Fall In Love" Partnership - Paws Crossed Animal Rescue J

Subaru White Plains and Paws Crossed Animal Rescue partnered during October 2020 for ‘Subaru Loves Pets’ month. Subaru White Plains generously pledged $100 every single day of the month for one orphaned dog or cat that was adopted. This incredible funding will go towards the direct comfort and care of our pets and in preparing them for their forever home. This includes veterinary visits (spay/neuter and major surgeries), medicines, vaccines, microchips, food etc… We shared a really fun, lifesaving, month together with our friends at Subaru White Plains: (1) We had 67 adoptions! 67 forever homes and new families! Incredible! (2) We did a “Fill the Subaru” supply drive. On October 31 – November 1 we asked people for donations of pet food and supplies. The supplies that were donated will not only be used for our rescue pets, but they will also assist with our Community Kibble Program; the purpose is to help keep companion pets in their homes and out of the shelter system by providing assistance to families that are having financial troubles. Now more than ever, this program is so important to our community. (3) We partnered on a Good Morning America spot on Oct 22nd, 2020 for #MakeADogsDay highlighting some of our beautiful pups! The attached photo is of beautiful Cleo who was one of the pups highlighted on the Subaru’s Underdog segment for the 2nd Annual Make a Dog’s Day on Good Morning America. Our Cleo came from a destructive home setting in Georgia. The woman that surrender her and her two babies said they had belonged to her boyfriend, and when he moved out, he left the dogs with her. She was unable to take care of this adorable family. She said that the boyfriend was continuously verbally abusive (to both her and the pets) and Cleo was terrified of him … and in turn, most people. Paws Crossed volunteers and staff worked non-stop with her to prove to her that people can be good and to improve her comfortability and confidence. She has come out of her shell and is a sucker for a yummy treat! Through patience, consistency and LOVE LOVE LOVE this little girl found her forever family and is much adored. PS: She also loves her Subaru toys! THANK YOU! From everyone and every single orphaned pet at Paws Crossed, THANK YOU for always being a partner in our mission to “Rescue One By One Until There Are None”. We are very grateful to Jeremy Abramson and his incredible team at Subaru White Plains for their continuous graciousness, support and community engagement with Paws Crossed … and beyond! Your impact is always so encouraging and inspiring! #WeAreFamily #TodayTomorrowTogether #BeTheirHero

"Fall In Love" Partnership

Bringing Warmth and Love to Cancer Patients! - Daniela V

Westchester Subaru and The CTWHV Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) have partnered to make a difference in the lives of children battling cancer in the White Plains community. The partnership called Subaru Loves to Care provides warm blankets, kids’ craft kits and loving messages of hope and inspiration written by Subaru customers to patients fighting cancer at Maria Fareri Children's Hospital. HUGE Thank you to Westchester Subaru for donating 80 beautiful blankets and 30 craft kits to Maria Fareri Children's Hospital to spread warmth to their patients. Patients are in the infusion center for hours at a time and these blankets keep them warm as they are going through treatments. The craft kits are a way to help patients and family members keep busy while they undergo treatment. We were lucky to meet Carmen who is a patient at the Maria Fareri Childrens Hospital and was on her way in to receive treatment. The excitement we saw that day and as you could see in the picture was priceless. This little girl touched all of our hearts and it was nice to get to know her and how she was appreciative for the blanket and excited for the craft kit. Thank you Carmen for making this delivery by far the best delivery! On behalf of LLS and everyone fighting or in remission from cancer and the people who love them, huge and heartfelt thanks to Westchester Subaru and the entire Westchester Subaru family for joining the LLS mission to create a world without blood cancer.
