White River Subaru has committed to increase our impact by donating to charities and non-profit groups that our Subaru Owners are involved in. Our long time customer Carl Thum recommended Visions because his daughter is a resident. Here is a note from Lucinda Brown Development Manager for Visions. "Brian, Thank you for including Visions for Creative Housing Solutions in White River Subaru’s giving program! Having bought two Outbacks from you in the past 5 years, I feel a special connection to your organization—its nice to “feel the love” in return! When you get to the point where you’re sharing this gift with your network, please feel free to ask for photographs. We have many wonderful pictures of our residents in action and would love to share them with you.Also, when you’re ready, I’d like to follow up on your idea of having us present our CDFA business tax credit opportunity to the Upper Valley Business Alliance. Thank you for your commitment to the cause of providing supported housing to adults with developmental disabilities in the Upper Valley! Warmly, Lucinda"

White River Subaru Loves the Upper Valley Humane Society - Carrie H

On September 3rd White River Subaru hosted a meet and greet with adoptable pets from the Upper Valley Humane Society. We raised over $500.00 in donations in pet food and supplies. Subaru Ambassadors Carrie Cahoon and Courtney Milo came along with donations also. Upper Valley Humane has to complete adoptions at their location so today was a great opportunity for folks to meet the available pets and get a chance to see them play.

White River Subaru Loves Learning! - Brian M

White River Subaru adopted six classrooms at White River School in White River Junction, VT. Doug Kussius has this to say about the donations "What is really nice about the Subaru Loves Learning grant is that teachers can buy things they might not otherwise feel they 'need'-- i.e.-- a little luxury. This has the impact of creating happiness and the kids notice the extra special stuff they wouldn't ordinarily have-- like some cool flexible seating, a new and comfy circle rug, or even just high quality white board markers in cool colors (that actually erase!)."

Choose the Love - Compassion in Action - Christine M

Scarlett Lewis started the Choose the Love movement after the untimely passing of her son Jesse in the Sandy Hook shooting in 2012. White River Subaru helped sponsor the Choose the Love Event on June 7th 2022 in Hanover, NH. Brian Moore of White River Subaru and his daughter Mia ran the Compassion in Action table where children would paint inspiring images for others to have compassion. White River Subaru placed the paintings on display after the event for customers and employees to be inspired by the children.

Visiting Nurses helped by White River Subaru - Lisa O

Through a professional exchange at the Upper Valley Business Alliance network meeting, Brian Moore with White River Junction Subaru and Lisa Orlandini with Visiting Nurse and Hospice of VT & NH started a conversation. Lisa has been a proud Subaru owner and she was also aware of the Subaru Share the Love program. Timing worked when Lisa stopped by the dealership recently to have her car serviced and picked up the conversation with Brian. Brian selected VNH as the recipient of July's Share the Love offering. The generous donation will help support VNH's Maternal Child and Long Term Services programs. VNH's Maternal Child Health program serves the newborn, pediatric, and child-bearing population as well as infants with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS). VNH's Long Term Services program provides and directs care and services to meet individual’s basic needs who want to remain in their community and maintain independence while coping with the effects of a chronic condition like diabetes or stroke. The staff at VNH is grateful to the team at Subaru and we look forward to working together to continue to support our communities.

Choose the Love Movement - Brian M

Brian Moore volunteered to help run the Compassion-in-action table at the Choose the Love movement event in Hanover, NH on June 7th. Scarlett Lewis is the founder of Choose Love, her son Jesse Lewis lost his life during the Sandy Hook shooting. Kids of all ages receive a passport to get stamped at every station, at the end they turn it in for a gift. The activity stations are "courage" (led by the Hanover PD and FD along with their cruisers and a trucks), "Forgiveness " (kids write something down they want to forgive and throw it in a "Self" or "other" bucket), "Gratitude" (write down something they are thankful for and deliver it to someone), and "Compassion-in-action" (paint or draw an inspiring picture for others.) All will be placed on display for the month of June at White River Subaru.
