Subaru - Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Blanket Drop Ann Barshinger Cancer Center - Krissy H

On July 13, 2022 I had the honor of meeting Eric Shellhamer from Lancaster County Motors Subaru for his sixth blanket drop! Eric was so proud to be part of Subaru and their generosity back to the community. Eric brought 80 blankets and 30 creative kits that brought smiles and joy to every teammate we met at the Ann Barshinger Cancer Institute with Penn Medicine, Lancaster General Health. Rebecca McCarron from the Cancer Institute was so inclusive with her invited her colleagues who work directly with blood cancer patients in many capacities. We shared time with the nurse navigator, infusion room nurses, social worker and a few from the special events team. Each one shared their appreciation and love for the soft blankets to keep patients warm, the metal box full of markers, crayons and more to help with patient's creativity. The Lancaster County community is so generous, and Lancaster County Motors Subaru leads the way in Corporate leadership. Thank you, Eric for consistently being the one to deliver the Subaru full of warmth and sunshine to those fighting blood cancer right here in Lancaster. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is proud to stand with you in partnership. Thank you for all you do!

Yes, We Can Help! - Lynn W

I received a phone call today. A woman, married, with 2 children sharing tearfully her journey of trying to come to grips with her situation. Her husband was fighting the horrible effects of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis better known as ALS, a slow, unrelenting illness that will take his life within the next few years. Her words, staggered through tearful sobs were, ”I just don’t know how to keep going” and then as if she realized she had almost admitted defeat, she said, defiantly “we’re not quitting, we’re not giving up, but I need.… no, we all need a break”. A friend told me about A Week Away. Is this something you do? Can you help us”? The answer is yes!! Because of Subaru and the Share The Love Campaign, we at the A Week Away Foundation have the funds to send this exhausted family on a much-needed, week-long Respite. Theirs will be a very complicated, expensive trip, custom-designed to meet their every need. The true value of a stress-free time away for this family, cannot be calculated in dollars… Its value will be priceless!! Respites provided through the A Week Away Foundation are necessary but costly. That is why we are so grateful to Lancaster County Motors Subaru. They have embraced our mission to bring rest and hope to families who are battling life-threatening illnesses and have sponsored 16 Family Respites. We simply could not do what we do without their help and commitment to AWA and to our community. The hope that is given to us through the amazing donation we received as a Home Town Charity this year, we are able to pass on and “Share the Love” with those that need it most. Thank you Lancaster County Motors Subaru!!

Community volunteers United Way 'Day of Caring' - Kyle G

For 30 years, United Way of Lancaster County has brought thousands of volunteers together to participate in Day of Caring. This annual, two-day opportunity gives individuals, families, and teams of volunteers from local companies and organizations a chance to be a part of a county-wide effort to give back by rolling up their sleeves and completing special projects for a non-profit organization. This fall, over 400 volunteers participated, we followed employees at UGI Utilities and students at Millersville University as they helped with projects throughout Lancaster County. United Way of Lancaster County is privileged to be able to help organize these volunteer opportunities throughout the area. With the support of Lancaster County Motor Subaru and selecting United Way of Lancaster County as a Hometown Hero we are thrilled to be able to connect with the community.

Celebrating Subaru with LancasterHistory - Annie W

Subaru Loves Learning and shares that love each year with LancasterHistory, Lancaster County’s home for history. As a key supporter of the museum’s annual Valentine event, Subaru helps LancasterHistory bring public education to learners of all ages. Thanks to Subaru’s support, visitors have access to a Museum and Research Center containing 2 million artifacts and archival items, and the home of President James Buchanan (Wheatland), while a museum dedicated to Congressman Thaddeus Stevens in the works. Subaru’s love fosters continuous learning. Robin Sarratt, Vice President of LancasterHistory, fondly remembers an instance when a guest at the annual holiday event was on the way home from the museum when she was in a serious car accident. The car she was driving—not a Subaru—was totaled, and she sustained minor injuries. Not knowing who to call in the moment, she phoned the main desk at the museum, where word reached our President & CEO about her predicament. He left the party and picked her up in his Subaru Outback, and made sure she was delivered safely home. Impressed by her ride, she went right out and bought a Subaru the very next day! To this day, she, too, supports LancasterHistory’s educational programs, loves driving her Subaru, and always remembers the love she received in a moment of need.

Food is Love - Feleen N

Meals on Wheels of Lancaster has seen an increased need for freshly prepared, home-delivered meals throughout the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic. With this increased need, we have also experienced an outpouring of love and support from the Lancaster County community. Opportunities to partner with organizations, coalitions and business-- such as Lancaster County Motors Subaru-- allows Meals on Wheels to expand its efforts to alleviate food insecurity. This work would not be possible without the contributions from donors and volunteers alike. This year, we have provided more than 185,000 meals to over 900 seniors in Lancaster County. We have benefited from the service of more than 600 volunteers who have driven over 106,000 miles. At Meals on Wheels of Lancaster, we provide more than just a meal. We are focused on building relationships and eliminating social isolation. Thankfully, programs, such as the Subaru Share the Love event, give us an opportunity to share these stories and have a stronger impact on the lives of individuals in need.

Subaru Supports Local Trail Race - Patrick B

Thank you to Lancaster County Motors Subaru for supporting the first annual Training Grounds 4 Mile Trail Run hosted by the Northern Lancaster County Game & Fish Association. The donation provided by LCM Subaru helped to offset the cost of race shirts and awards. It also helped to keep programs, such as the fish rodeo put on for children, running at the Game & Fish association. The 4 mile trail run and the Northern Lancaster County Game & Fish Association rely on outside support from individuals and businesses to maintain operations. Lancaster County Motors Subaru also donated a car to be used at the race for transporting supplies to the water station, carrying course markers, and to be displayed along the route. This race would not have succeeded to the extent it did without the support we received. We look forward to more future partnerships with Lancaster County Motors Subaru.

The Outpouring of Love - Carrie M

Lancaster County Motors Subaru came through for Brittany’s Hope in a time of great need for a two-year-old boy, named Duc. He was abandoned at birth in a hospital in Viet Nam, born with Down Syndrome. Weak, with a soft head, large belly, and laying to one side, his medical diagnosis was grim; however, he was an overwhelmingly happy and content baby. Brittany’s Hope is a 501c nonprofit organization committed to recognizing the fundamental rights of all children. We empower families and communities to make real and lasting change in the lives of orphaned and at-risk children through international special needs adoption grants and humanitarian initiatives. Like many non-profits struggling financially through the lingering effects of the pandemic, it was difficult for us to hold many in-person fundraisers. Because of this, we have not been able to make the impact on families that we have in the past. Lancaster County Motors Subaru pledged to help Duc find his forever family through a gift of $2,500. We, and Duc’s family, couldn’t be more grateful. Families’ adoption costs and fees have been amplified, due to the pandemic, causing a delay in bringing their children home. Lancaster County Motors Subaru stepped in with their generous gift to Brittany’s Hope’s adoption grant program making a life-altering transformation for Duc. The outpouring of love Lancaster County Motors Subaru has shown to us has been immeasurable. They found a way to provide their love across an ocean to another country and bring it back safely. There is no deeper affirmation – thank you for your Love Promise!
