Artic Freeze Temperatures - Gemma R

February 3rd 2023... I received a staff email that stated the following. "We've been plunged into a severe Arctic blast with temps in the teens as I write and wind chills well below zero. Our outreach team has been working all week to help those in our community who don’t have a warm, safe place to go find shelter this weekend. Please keep everyone who is out in the elements in your thoughts during this extreme weather event." I am the Director at The Carriage House Shelter in North Falmouth, I work for Housing Assistance Corporation. As well as the three family shelters on Cape Cod, we also have an incredible outreach team that seeks out homeless people living on the streets, to offer them support, services, and when possible shelter. Atlantic Subaru, generously donated and equipped our outreach team with 500 socks. What a difference it is to have warm, dry feet when you are constantly living in the elements. Thank you Atlantic Subaru for your thoughtful donation to HAC and your ongoing support to the Cape Cod Community.

Saving dogs AND saving Veterans - David C

Saving dogs AND saving Veterans because of Atlantic Subaru’s and the Subaru Share the Love Event.-22Mohawks 22Mohawks is a local nonprofit that brings awareness around veteran suicide and helps veterans lead themselves to find purpose through companion dogs, parachuting, and life enhancing classes such as finance and investing, mental health and suicide prevention courses. A recent study done by America Warrior Partnership, Operation Deep Dive found that organizations like, 22Mohakws that give dogs to veterans there is a 0% suicide rate. Meaning any veteran that has received a dog is still alive. Atlantic Subaru’s dedication to help 22Mohawks achieve our mission of “Saving a Dog, to Save a Veteran” will give us the ability to save 54 lives. Not only will their Subaru Share the Love Event save 27 dogs, but it will save and truly enhance the lives of 27 veterans. Thank you, Atlantic Subaru of Bourne, Ma for your support and helping us to achieve our overarching mission of ending veteran suicide.

Turkeys for Christmas Dinner - Wendy L

Atlantic Subaru and Representative Steven Xiarhos contacted the Cape Cod Synagogue and delivered eight turkeys, stuffing, and cranberry sauce for our annual Christmas Dinner for those in need. We will be cooking for St. Joseph's House Shelter in Hyannis on Christmas Day for the people who live there. We are very grateful for this generous donation to help us offset the cost.

Gift of Kindness - Jane F

When reached out to Wareham Cooperative Alternative School to inform me that Atlantic Subaru would be giving $3,000 dollars in supplies to our PASS night school diploma program for students seeking a non-traditional path to graduate, My staff and I were so excited. Six teachers were able to purchase $500 in classroom supplies. This may not seem like much but our night school program has a very tiny budget and this money was truly a gift of kindness. That being said Atlantic Subaru also collected supplies and donated them to our 21st CCLC after school program called CARE for students in grades K-7. The CARE program is a grant funded program from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. We provide two sixteen-week sessions after school and a six- week summer program for students that are economically disadvantaged, students with disabilities and students at risk. Over 400 students each year participate in the program. It is academic/enrichment programming focusing on hands on, project based learning. Again any extra support is greatly appreciated. My staff and I are so grateful for the generosity of Atlantic Subaru

I Beg you - Robin H

Today I was contacted by Representative Steven Xiarhos who made a visit to A Baby Center (the Cape Cod and Islands Diaper Bank), I am the Director my name is Robin Hayward. We were so excited to receive 25 turkeys from Atlantic Subaru in Bourne, Massachusetts. We were delighted as another organization had donated all of the Thanksgiving fixings the day before. Every family that came in today were offered these beautiful turkeys for their family. At the end of the day we had a few turkeys left. I called around to a few partner nonprofit programs to see if they needed turkeys. I was directed to Jeni Wheeler at the Family Table Collaborative who was cooking for 1200 over the next few days. I loaded up 79lbs of Turkey plus one extra into my car and delivered the turkeys to Jeni. They were so grateful she will make sure individuals and families all over the Cape will have a delicious Turkey dinner. Then I headed home. I was coming up to a light and I noticed a young woman begging with a sign that read “No food, No gas, No money, No help” I waved her to my car and opened my car door in the middle of traffic. She came to the door with a trusting smile. I said I do not have any money but I do have a Turkey dinner. We both giggled as she tried to lift the 20lb Turkey out of my car. It took all of her strength. I passed her a bag of food to go with her Turkey and watched her walk away with a big smile. She waved at me as I went by and the light changed to green. I cried all the way home. I love when people work together, and do not judge but just offer help and offer hope. Thank you Atlantic Subaru in Bourne. Thank you Gegam and Lanni. Thank you for bringing us together!

Kitten evacuated from Florida hurricane finds a new family in Massachusetts - Heather R

When Hurricane Ian made landfall in Florida in late September 2022, the powerful category 4 storm left behind devastation across the state. Thousands of people were impacted, and in turn pets were left homeless, too. The MSPCA-Angell, the country’s second oldest animal welfare organization, reached out to animal shelters across the state of Florida to offer assistance. The southern shelters were already at max capacity prior to the deadly storm, and shelter staff expected that number to increase with animals displaced by the storm that were unable to be reunited with their owners despite all efforts, or surrendered by people who had lost everything and could no longer care for their pets. In collaboration with several humane organizations, the MSPCA-Angell relocated dozens of cats from affected Florida shelters to New England to find new homes. Many of the cats arrived at our MSPCA-Cape Cod adoption center, where they underwent a mandatory 48-hour quarantine and then received necessary medical care prior to adoption. Thanks to our good friends at Atlantic Subaru in Bourne, MA, we were able to host a pop-up adoption event to find homes for dozens of these cats in a single weekend. Once word spread about the special event, potential adopters began to reach out, enabling many of the cats to find homes even before the event. One of the cats adopted through the event was four month old Angel, who arrived just a week after the hurricane had hit. Soon after her arrival at the MSPCA-Cape Cod, Angel was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection that required medical attention. Fortunately, Angel recovered just in time to meet her new adoptive family at our adoption event sponsored by Atlantic Subaru! We recently received a lovely update from Angel’s new family, who wrote, “ My husband and I are beyond happy that we made the appointment last Saturday and found this little girl. We immediately loved her and she is the sweetest kitty. She is cute, super playful and snuggly. She has settled in very nicely in our home. Thank you to all the nice people at the MSPCA and for all you do! We are very grateful.” We’re grateful to the nice people at Atlantic Subaru too, who helped us find homes for so many of these cats who had traveled thousands of miles to get a chance at a new life. In fact, the event was so successful that we made room for yet another transport of cats within a day of the adoption event, enabling us to help even more cats in need. Hats off to Atlantic Subaru, and to all of the wonderful adoptive families who have opened their hearts and homes to new pets this month!

Birthday Love! - Kevin C

As a per diem "runner" for Atlantic Subaru, I reported to work at 9AM, for a parts "drop off" in Eastham on August 2, 2022. Coincidentally, this day was my 75th birthday! Once the job was completed and while I was punching out I noticed a growing group, from various Atlantic department members, suspiciously, gathering in the main showroom. I seemed to be the focus of their assembly! Almost blocking my exit, the group all at once erupted into song, singing "Happy Birthday" to me! I was presented with a card, which was signed by most in attendance, a Birthday Cake and "well wishes" from many who were in attendance. I was flabbergasted! However I shouldn't have been as I always felt very comfortable with my ability to observationally assess situations (sizing up a room, reading body languages etc.) Additionally, I had a nothing but a wonderful feeling about ALL employees that I have worked with at Atlantic Subaru! So, while I was curious about growing group in the showroom I paid little heed" to that activity and I busied myself with leaving for the day. That is when my colleagues sprang the surprise! This "happening" was about me..."in first person"! I was totally unprepared and off guard! I was wonderfully aghast! I had a wonderful career in public education spanning 40 years! I was involved, primarily, with building and program administration. I blended that with years of some years counseling and, of course, starting with classroom teaching. In retirement from public education, I felt the strong personal need to continue to work in some capacity to keep me "centered" as it were. Consequentially, I worked with Adult Special Needs Programs in Boston and on the South Coast and in the Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation field (with nearby Gosnold Recovery programs.) When COVID hit, my Primary Care Physician and my children insisted that I get out of the substance abuse rehabilitation field...which I loved. Of course they were correct and I found myself "legless" without work and no relatively "safe job" in sight! On a suggestion from a co-worker at Gosnold, who had started some work with Atlantic, as a runner, I applied and met with Rick Tully, at Subaru and the rest is history! Knowing absolutely nothing about car sales and dealerships, I had nothing to do but learn and drive{safely}. Three plus years later, I still know very little about the car business but then again, I am not looking to start a new 75 years of age!. However, I have realized a deep appreciation for the people that I have met at Atlantic Subaru. While their work acumen is tenacious, it ALWAYS is beautifully blended with empathy, understanding and professionalism for customer and colleague, alike! This, I am sure, is the product of a "top down" but humanitarian hierarchy that all employees (which I have met) exude on a daily basis. In closing and as I said at "My Birthday Party," " I love coming into work at Atlantic Subaru in the morning!" and that "Subaru slows the aging process!" Thanks for a great gig! Kevin P, Connolly

Birthday Love!

Subie The Bearded Dragon - VREJ K

Saphira was one of my best friends for the past decade of my life. Not only did I love her, but she helped me face my depression and become who I am today. I don’t know if I would still be studying biology without her. To see her go was very hard, and being able to show a softer side to my fellow employees and be met with such kindness and comfort was truly touching. I could never have expected the next morning to walk in to Atlantic Subaru, happy to be greeted by my girls, but also to have Subie the bearded dragon waiting there for me. Never in my life have I felt so well loved by a group of people outside of my own family. The amounts of joy in the air that day I believe will resonate in the hearts of all involved. Subaru says “feel the love” and I can confirm that day and my whole work experience that they meant it. My friends there have done their best to make it feel like a family, and one that I am more than proud to be a part of.
