Hometown Charity Love - Providence Child Center - Crystal L

Providence’s most fragile patients just received some love from Carr Subaru Beaverton and Subaru of America - $62,000 worth of love. Subaru’s “Share the Love” event was held from November to January, during which time Subaru donated $250 for every new vehicle purchased or leased to certain charities. Customers buying or leasing the vehicles were able to select a local charity from a number of choices. One of the charities offered by Carr Subaru Beaverton was Bill’s Kids Fund at Providence’s Center for Medically Fragile Children. The Bill’s Kids Fund is named in honor of Providence Child Center Foundation board member Bill Schonely, who is also known as Mr. Rip City for his three decades as the play-by-play announcer for the Portland Trail Blazers. The $ Share the Love donation will support the round-the-clock care provided at the center for young people with profound disabilities and complex medical needs. This is the seventh year Carr Subaru has chosen Providence Child Center as its local charity, bringing its total contribution close to $700,000. "Only through community support can the Providence Child Center provide services to hundreds of children of all abilities to help them reach their full potential. Carr has engaged and leveraged resources to care for our community's youth and that is invaluable," says Crystal Logan, regional development officer/women’s and children’s health, Providence Foundations of Oregon.

Sharing the gift of warmth together with Carr - Renee B

Good Neighbor Center (GNC) has been caring for families who are housing insecure for over 20 years. We offer emergency shelter, care and resources for families for 6-8 weeks. We assist the families in overcoming the barriers that contributed to their housing insecurity. We employ 10-14 caring staff and in non COVID times, have about 1000 volunteers. We can do quite a bit with staff and volunteer support, however, the real support comes through our partners such as Carr Subaru. We are 100% reliant on funding through grants, donations, in kind items etc. We were contacted by Brad and his team regarding a gift of 80 blankets. Since COVID struck back in March we have not been accepting used donated items. With 9 families in shelter at any given time, we go through a lot of sheets and blankets. When Carr called and asked about accepting the blankets we were elated! Not only do we have the family shelter, but we are also serving housing insecure adults through the South County Severe Weather Shelter so we were able to share blankets with them as well. We are called to be kind. To show love and support to those who need it most. We are incredibly grateful for Carr Subaru's support. Thank you! In Service, Renee Brouse Executive Director, Good Neighbor Center

Carr Subaru supports Indigo Rescue on Halloween! - Heather H

For more than 23 years, Indigo Rescue has focused on catching the most vulnerable dogs that fall through the cracks of the Portland Metro animal rescue system. Our dogs have very special, individualized and often extensive needs—some physical and some behavioral. When shelters call us, it’s because they have run out of options. This is why we are so excited about Subaru’s Underdog Campaign. We are thrilled that Carr Subaru is partnering with us as we prove over and over again that animals with unique needs can make perfect, one-of-a-kind family members—but it’s not easy. It takes resources, time and patience. For all these years, we have relied entirely on our network of foster homes, but we have never been able to keep up with the need. We are now very close to realizing our dream for a brick and mortar facility, Indigo Acres. It will include a “retirement home” for senior dogs, home-like settings for convalescing animals, whelping rooms for pregnant rescues, training areas for behavioral issues, and boarding facilities for tiny, elderly and medically fragile dogs. It will be a place where staff and volunteers will give many of these special dogs their first taste of a loving home. When Carr Subaru supports us with Halloween and Santa photo shoots, we all have a good time. But more importantly, our special dogs have a better chance for a good GOOD LIFE because of them and the Subaru family. We invite you to learn more about our work, our goals, and easy ways to help us with our project! Visit us at: --Heather Hines, Executive Director, Indigo Rescue

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society & CARR Subaru - Michael Scott P

Subaru Share the Love: Together, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and CARR Subaru will spread hope, love, and warmth to cancer patients through small gestures of hope. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and CARR Subaru will donate blankets and messages of hope, written by CARR Subaru customers, to patients at the Providence Cancer Center in Portland, Oregon, and donate arts & crafts kits to children battling cancer. Thank you so much for your time today! What a great opportunity to see the impact of your community support. No sooner did we joke about the timing of handing out blankets in June, when that lovely woman approached us and asked if her husband could have a blanket because he’s a cancer patient and he was cold. It reinforces that it doesn’t matter what time of year it is – a blanket is always a welcome and comforting gift.
