Subaru for the Animals! - Jacques D

Subaru Loves Pets Month was a huge success at the Monadnock Humane Society! So many of our adorable pets got adopted and moved into loving and caring homes, we couldn't be happier with the turnout for this generous event! Just one of the great stories from our adoption is the story of Blake. Blake is a dog that was adopted during Subaru Loves Pets Month, and he was taken home by the wonderful people seen in the photo! However, Blake was at MHS for months and while he did get some visitors, no one made the decision to take him home. That was until a group of friends came to visit him and took him for a walk, they fell in love with his playful attitude and happy face! Blake was finally going to a great home and we at the Monadnock Humane Society want to thank the amazing people who took him under their care and of course Subaru for making the adoption of this great pet possible! Thank You!

30th Annual Fenton Family Golf Tournament - Peggy H

The Fenton Family Dealership's Annual Golf Tournament to benefit The Community Kitchen was held this year on June 6th. The day brought clear skies, warm temperatures and all the elements for a great day. It was nice to see many familiar faces and welcome new ones. For the first time since 2019, the tournament began with a shotgun start and ended with a delicious buffet dinner provided by The Keene Country Club. It was a day to get out amongst peers and friends, enjoy a beautiful day and a round of golf, all while benefiting the programs at The Community Kitchen. In 2021 alone, The Community Kitchen’s Pantry Program provided 252,117 meals to 28,085 individuals on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Through the Hot Meals Program, 28,535 meals were served Monday through Friday and on Sundays. Each year with the help of Subaru of Keene, there is a combined effort to continue to raise the bar on this event—our largest fundraiser of the year. This year, two milestones were achieved; we celebrated the 30th Annual Golf Tournament and raised and unprecedented $58,504.22!! This is over $10,000 more than any other year. This keeps The Community Kitchen running for a month and allows us to provide 23,402 meals through the Pantry and Hot Meals Programs! This would never have been possible without the hard work and continued support of Subaru of Keene and the Fenton Family Dealerships. We are extremely grateful.

The Belong Bus - Colleen M

The Keene Family YMCA was in need of a new bus. We provide after school care for dozens of children in our community and they rely on us to provide transportation to and from the local elementary schools. Fenton Family Dealerships went above and beyond helping us find the perfect bus for our program. Not only did they give us an incredible deal on the bus, but they also performed all of the repairs necessary to ensure safe transportation for our kiddos, at no additional cost. Not only that, but one of their employee’s spouses undercoated the bus for free to make sure it was good for the long haul. The generous spirit of Fenton obviously reverberates throughout their organization. Thank you so much, Fenton and JP&B Heavy Truck Service for helping make our afterschool programs more accessible to everyone in our community!

Subaru Greens Up Keene! - Andrea M

For the past several years Subaru of Keene has helped in the annual Green Up Keene event to clear local streets, trails and parks of litter that has gathered over the winter months. Volunteers from Subaru of Keene have adopted a heavily littered area of roadway that is a main entrance into the City. They have helped to make that area sparkle and have continued to beautify Keene with their participation. Thanks for your help Subaru of Keene!

Subaru Love Lifts Us Up - Patty F

This winter Cedarcrest Center for Children with Disabilities was nominated as the Subaru of Keene Share the Love recipient. We were over the moon! We provide care for infants, children, teens, and young adults who live every day with complex medical and developmental challenges. Funding for the children's care, therapies, adaptive technology, and equipment is traditionally funded through Medicaid or the children's school districts. However, there are many expenses such as shared specialized medical equipment, recreational programming and other needs that do not meet the funding criteria. Therefore, we are tremendously grateful for the Share the Love support from Subaru of Keene, Fenton Family Dealerships and Subaru of America. Contributions from individuals, businesses and foundations make it possible for us to meet the needs of the children that otherwise would go unmet. The children are incredible. We learn from them every day and strive to help them achieve anything that their peers can achieve-adapting and being resourceful how that is accomplished. This generous contribution will enable and empower our team to go beyond the basics of care, education, and therapy, and to provide the children with the types of experiences and activities all children deserve. Our Mission: Cedarcrest Center enriches the lives of children with complex medical and developmental needs, supports their families, and collaborates with other community providers to build a continuum of care. As the only provider of this level of care for children and youth in New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine we have a great responsibility - this support from Subaru of Keene and Subaru of American makes our mission possible. Thank you! Your team is incredible and your community impact is unparalleled.

Making the World a Better Place: A New Home for the Homeless - Susan M

Since 2010, Hundred Nights, Inc. has provided assistance to individuals and families who are at risk of or experiencing homelessness with respect, dignity and compassion. Through the generosity of Subaru of Keene and Fenton Family Dealerships, a dollar-for-dollar matching fundraiser was held during the month of April. The generosity of the greater community brought in $5,145, and Bill Fenton doubled his pledge to add $10,000, bringing the total raised to $15,145. These funds support the Capital Campaign of Hundred Nights and the vision of a new building. In the same way that the Subaru Love Promise is a commitment to respect all people, the goal of the campaign is to offer safe, adequate emergency shelter by equally valuing and supporting all community members. The shelter’s capacity will be doubled when the facility opens in Spring 2023. We are grateful for the opportunity to join with Subaru and Fenton Family Dealerships to make a positive impact in the world!

Thoughtful gift from Fenton Family Dealerships - Katherine R

We all know the pandemic has been hard on everyone -- community members and medical staff alike. But caring actions and thoughtful ideas make all the difference here at Cheshire to ease that. Toward the end of December, we had a call from Fenton Family Dealerships (FFD) asking what they could do for our frontline staff. Instead of suggesting food or coffee, they were thinking outside of the box: what equipment would help lighten the load during a demanding day in our ICU or Emergency Department? Leaders in those departments shared that having another cooling blanket would be really helpful. Cooling blankets are used to manage dangerously high fevers in patients, allowing them to recover properly. The blankets come with specialized equipment to control blood temperature and work to quickly reduce patients’ body temperature and then maintain a stable patient temperature. Bill Fenton, President of FFD, said, “Our local hospital has really stepped up to the plate over the past two years to keep our community safe and cared for. We wanted to express our deep appreciation for what Cheshire’s staff has gone through and in some way help to make their lives easier when caring for patients.” Thank you, Subaru of Keene and Fenton Family Dealerships!

2021 Subaru Loves Pets Adoption Event - Kathy C

2021 Subaru Loves Pets Adoption Event - 106 Pets Found New Families! This past October, Subaru of Keene worked with MHS to create an adoption event that took place throughout the month. Together with a grant from ASPCA, Subaru of America and Subaru of Keene, we were able to adopt out over 106 pets! Not only did the grant funding make it possible to offer each adopter a discount, but it covered marketing expenses for the event and indirect costs of care for these pets. Important also to note is the spirit of collaboration with George, Scott, and everyone at Subaru of Keene. They worked hard to make the event successful – designing and producing banners, sharing social media posts, coming to MHS to promote the event (with fun giveaways!), providing “adoption care” boxes, and just being there for us at every step of the planning and execution of the event. They were wonderful to work with – always responsive, positive and helpful. It was clear to all of us that they are passionate about helping MHS. We’re delighted to work together with Subaru of Keene – they *really* do love pets! Pictured is Keller, who found his perfect new family during the Subaru Loves Pets event. He had been at MHS for almost a month before being found by his new mom, who is a dog trainer and is familiar with the Aussie breed. Keller is in great hands and has a wonderful future ahead!

Subaru supports program for babies and toddlers - Pat P

As Rise for baby and family prepared to celebrate 40 years of helping children with developmental delays and disabilities, we wanted to find a way to help both families who might need our help and the community at large understand the services we offer. Rise’s Family-Centered Early Supports and Services (FCESS) program offers specialized care for children up to age 3 with diagnosed or potential developmental delays or disabilities. This care, offered at no charge to families, is provided by physical and occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, educators, and child and family counselors. While the concept of supporting infant and toddler development is straightforward, the actual work is individualized and complex. We knew that capturing the stories of the individuals who are the recipients of this work, through video, would be the best way to explain what we do. We approached Subaru of Keene for assistance and they generously agreed to provide financial support for the project. The result is “Rise,” an eight-minute film that shares the stories of families who received Rise services, helping prospective families understand how Rise for baby and family can assist them. Created by a local filmmaker, it is both moving and educational. When children have developmental delays or disabilities, the earlier they receive services the better: the connections in a child's brain are most adaptable in the first three years. FCESS programs like Rise’s help children achieve developmental milestones and lay the foundation for school and life. We are very grateful for Subaru of Keene’s support for this important project!
