Boys and Girls Club of the Mountain Communities - Dennis P

Subaru of San Bernardino donated $52,762 to the Mountain Communities Boys and Girls Club. Subaru of San Bernardino has been a constant supporter of our organization and without their assistance our ability to serve the kid’s and their families would have really been negatively affected. Your support will help us get back to whatever the new normal will become. The Boys & Girls Club of the Mountain Communities works hard to help provide the tools for its members to have a successful life. Most members share about their home life as they grow to trust the program leaders and aides. Increasing unemployment, a lack of parenting skills, drug use and the growing incidence of homelessness all affect many of the children we serve each day, having a profound effect on their ability to cope with school and social interaction. https://mountain-news.com/news/40461/subaru-of-san-bernardino-donates-52762/

Subaru Shares The Love With Operation Grace - Jenai M

In November of 2020 Subaru of San Bernardino, gave Operation Grace a big surprise! Our Women And Children's Shelter had just been renovated and we needed supplies. Subaru came through for us and donated much needed blankets to give to our women and children. It was an amazing act of love. Many thanks to Mike, the General Manager, Sonja who coordinated the love and to the volunteers who rolled up their sleeves and came along to deliver them to us. Operation Grace guides families in crisis to housing solutions with our emergency shelter and housing assistance programs. Our women's shelter serves single women and women with children who are homeless. By the time our families leave the shelter they have done a lot of work improving their lives, obtaining employment, saving money and getting ready for their own place. They receive move in assistance and all the wonderful brand-new home supplies that people have donated to help with the next half of their journey. We are happy to say that our families will be snuggling up with Subaru love when they settle in. Thank you on behalf of our staff and volunteers for your generosity. Jessica Alexander – Chief Executive Officer, Operation Grace

Subaru Loves to Help CAPSBC and Our Communities! - Xiomara H

On September 16, 2020, Community Action Partnership of San Bernardino County (CAPSBC) received a $1,500 donation from Subaru of San Bernardino to help support our mission of “Helping People, Changing Lives.” This donation will help support the agency’s efforts to continue providing vital services such as food resources to low-income individuals and families throughout San Bernardino County. Since 1965, CAPSBC has been developing and implementing programs that address the most crucial needs of low-income residents in the county. The agency’s core programs include the Energy, Education and Environmental Services, Family Development, and the Food Bank. Our Food Bank is the largest provider of emergency food in San Bernardino County with a mission to combat hunger and malnutrition by distributing healthy food to people in need. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have ramped up our Food Bank operations because that is where we have seen the highest increase in demand for services. The pandemic has affected every person, and traditionally stable households who have not previously experienced food insecurity are seeking help for the first time. As part of CAPSBC’s COVID-19 Response, for the period of March 1, 2020 through August 31, 2020, our Food Bank Program has assisted 239,065 households with food assistance. The total number of individuals served within those households total over 1.2 million. The program has distributed over 8,263,901 pounds of food during this reporting period to alleviate food insecurity in our county. “We are deeply grateful to Subaru of San Bernardino for your generous donation to our organization. This year, CAPSBC is proud to celebrate 55 years of providing essential services to our low-income residents struggling to make ends meet. It is only through the generosity and concern of individuals and organizations such as yours that make our mission possible. Thank you for your trust in our organization and commitment to making a difference for our communities during these difficult times. We are truly honored to be a recipient of the donation and will ensure it is used for its intended purpose.” ~ Patricia Nickols-Butler, CAPSBC President & Chief Executive Officer

Craft Kits and Blanket Delivery - Samantha V

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Orange CountyInland Empire Chapter partnered up with Subaru of San Bernardino to deliver 80blankets and 50 craft kits to cancer patients at the Loma Linda UniversityChildren’s Hospital on Tuesday, June 26th. The general manager Mike from Subaru joined us at the delivery along with his wife and staff members, Samantha and Adriana, from LLS. Together we hand delivered approximately 15blankets to patients who ranged from the ages of two to the age of twenty. The smiles on the faces of the children as they received their items/gifts was priceless. The younger kids were eager and excited to open their craft-kit boxes and discover what was inside. Little four-year-old Axel Scheeler was quick to open his craft-kit and turned to the camera with a precious smile as shown in the picture below. Axel is such an adorable child that stole our hearts with his beautiful smile. After a small talk with his mother, she explained that Axel was diagnosed with Leukemia in September 2017. He has been such a brave little fighter since the start and today he has made it to a lighter phase of chemotherapy treatment. Interacting with little Axel was definitely the highlight of my delivery. The children’s parents were all very grateful and appreciative of the small gesture. This delivery was overall a great experience. We were able to brighten the little ones day with these items and the friendly staff at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital contributed to the amazing experience. It was an honor to be able to give back to the community through the Subaru Loves to Care program where we were able to spread the love, hope, and warmth but most importantly, demonstrate the support.

Subaru Loves to Care with LLS - Yvette S

On July 31, 2017 Loma Linda Children's Hospital and the department of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Infusion Center hosted the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society & San Bernardino Subaru for the delivery of blankets and craft kits. We were able to hand deliver the blankets and craft kits to about 5 patients undergoing their chemotherapy treatment on site. Jasmine Moro, 4, of San Bernardino, was just one patient out of many at the LLUCH clinic to receive a blanket and craft kit from the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Subaru of San Bernardino. Jasmine- “Mom I want to show these things to my daddy, they are so cool. Can I color right now?” These were the words that came out of this young little girl. Just hearing Jasmin all excited about her craft kit and pulling all of the things out of the lunch box to show her mom was just a priceless moment. It’s very warming to hear the family being really thankful to San Bernardino Subaru and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Josue Silva, 16, second patient that we interviewed who was also super excited to receive a warm blanket. As he was laying down in his cold room, he was really happy to see us walk in with a blanket to keep him warm. He stated- “Thank you all for bringing smiles to us,I hope you guys continue to do this for other patients like myself.” The presence of Subaru and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society helped provide a resource and a gentle reminder that survivors and family members have a social support network.
