LEE'S SUMMIT SUBARU SUPPORT MEAL ON WHEELS - JASON B

LEE'S SUMMIT SUBARU IS HELPING DELIVER HUMANITY THIS HOLIDAY SEASON. Millions of our grandmothers and grandfathers are setting the table for one this holiday season. They are more isolated and more alone than ever. Older adults are unable to see their own friends, family, neighbors, and loved ones as they try to stay protected from COVID-19 – which shows no signs of slowing. You can deliver humanity to struggling seniors with a gift today.

Not all pets live equal. While some may enjoy a healthy life with loving humans, others may not be as lucky. That's why we're celebrating Subaru Loves Pets by supporting a month-long, nationwide effort to help the last-to-be-adopted pets find loving homes - your home. Every day in during the month of October we will be sharing a pet currently available for adoption at Midwest Animal Resq. For every dog that gets adopted during the month of October, Lee's Summit Subaru will be donating $200 to Midwest Animal Resq. We will also be accepting donations from our customers to give to Midwest Animal Resq in November, along with what we hope is a giant check. To see a list of needed shelter items, please go here. https://www.midwestanimalresq.org/wish-list.html In addition, on October 22nd, Subaru will be celebrating our 2nd annual National Make A Dogs Day by inviting all dog lovers to do something extra special for their favorite dog. #MakeADogsDay.

Lucky’s second chance at life - Erin Q

When Lucky was surrendered to our shelter you could tell that he wanted someone to love him. He would curl up in your lap (even though he was 50 pounds!) and just soak up all the love you would give him. Prior to coming into our shelter, Lucky was spending most of his time locked in a kennel; only let out once a day if given the opportunity. Lucky needed love. Lucky needed a lucky break. Luckily for him, he ended up at our shelter. From the minute Lucky came to us he was immediately a staff favorite. He was such an easy dog to fall in love with. When Subaru presented the opportunity for us to partner with them, we knew Lucky would get adopted in a heartbeat! Because of Subaru’s generosity and ability to post Lucky on social outlets someone saw his picture and decided to come meet him. They, as we all did, immediately fell in love with Lucky and took him home!! Lucky has now been in his new forever home for two months and the adopters still keep us updated on how he is doing. As you can see, he has a new best fur-friend and is getting all the love in the world! We are so happy that Lucky finally found his forever family.

9TH PET ADOPTION ¦ MIDWEST ANIMAL RESQ - Erin Q

Every year we host an in-store pet adoption event with Midwest Animal ResQ. They are amazing people and love everything they stand for. What Does Midwest Animal ResQ Do? Since 2009, Midwest Animal ResQ has been rescuing dogs from inhumane conditions, in particular saving them from puppy mills and large-scale breeding facilities. Initially focused only on those unfortunate dogs, now with support from the community and businesses like Lee’s Summit Subaru, Midwest Animal ResQ has grown into a rescue group that saves a wide range of animals in the Kansas City area. In 2015, the Midwest Animal ResQ adoption center was opened in Raytown, MO. It serves as a sanctuary for animals that need time to recover from living in inhumane conditions. These animals often need special behavioral help or medical attention before they are ready for their new, loving home. While at Midwest Animal ResQ, animals are fed with locally grown produce from Nature’s Select Pet Foods, they have daily socialization, playgroups with other animals, and they are taught basic training and manners. Midwest Animal ResQ also works with an incredible network of fosters who look after these poor animals until their true home is finally found. Stray dogs in Raytown that are unclaimed are saved from death thanks to Midwest Animal ResQ, and Raytown is considered a no-kill city thanks to Midwest Animal ResQ, the fosters, and your donations. Choosing to adopt from Midwest Animal ResQ means you will be adopting an animal that has had full veterinary exams, has had all vaccinations appropriate for the animal’s age and is microchipped. Comprehensive pet care coverage is also available direct from Midwest Animal ResQ.

Annual "Shop with a Cop" Campaign 2018 - Michael R

At Lee's Summit Subaru, we're proud to support the annual "Shop with a Cop" campaign, which helps build strong community bonds by pairing Lee's Summit Police Officers with teacher-selected children from local schools. The officers take the kids to Wal-Mart to shop for Christmas gifts, helping each child make sure that they get something for everyone in their family, and also providing them a little gentle encouragement to get something for themselves while they're at it. Afterward, the Officers take the kids back to Police Headquarters in Lee's Summit to wrap the presents with the help of Police Department employees and volunteers from the community. The kids also get to meet Santa and eat dinner with the Officers and volunteers. Once everyone has had a full meal, the kids are either picked up by their parent or parents, or the Officers take them back home and help deliver some Christmas cheer to their families!

http://mow.lsmo.us/subaru-share-the-love-event/?fbclid=IwAR2UVw-m_DyIsVM-jVgqYV_FiEnJY5-TFjij1zpMM_MIgFf43LRLOLd3-4Y Exciting news! Meals on Wheels of Lee’s Summit is partnering with Lee’s Summit Subaru for the Subaru Share the Love Event. Over the past ten years, Subaru and its retailers have helped Meals on Wheels to deliver nearly 2 million meals nationwide to seniors in need. Why does Subaru support Meals on Wheels? Too many seniors are struggling to stay independent and healthy. One in four seniors lives alone in isolation and one in seven seniors might not know from where their next meal is coming. This is simply unacceptable, which is why Meals on Wheels of Lee’s Summit provides the nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks to the seniors of the area. This vital support keeps seniors in their own homes, where they want to be. We’re incredibly grateful to Subaru and its retailers for supporting our organization and the seniors we serve. With that in mind, we thought you might want to learn a little bit more about the Subaru Share the Love Event. HERE’S HOW IT WORKS This November 15, 2018, through January 2, 2019, for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased, Subaru will donate $250 to the customer’s choice of participating charities.* Meals on Wheels is one of four national participating charities and has been since the inception of the event. Through this event, as a member of Meals on Wheels America, Meals on Wheels of Lee’s Summit will receive a share of the donation from Subaru vehicles sold in Missouri. You might not be in the market to purchase a new car, but if you are, please look into the Subaru Share the Love Event to learn more. If you’re not shopping for a new vehicle, you can still help by spreading the word to your family and friends. A few quick and easy ways to do that: Share this website article! Share our posts about Share the Love on the Meals on Wheels of Lee’s Summit Facebook page. And remember this holiday season you can ensure our senior neighbors are not forgotten, when you buy or lease a new Subaru and select Meals on Wheels as your charity of choice. *Disclaimer: Subaru will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased from November 15, 2018, through January 2, 2019, to four national charities designated by the purchaser or lessee. Pre-approved Hometown Charities may be selected for donation depending on retailer participation. Certain participating retailers may make an additional donation to the Hometown Charities selected. Purchasers/lessees must make their charity designations by January 31, 2019. The four national charities will receive a guaranteed minimum donation of $250,000 each. See your local Subaru retailer for details or visit subaru.com/share. All donations made by Subaru of America, Inc.

Midwest Animal ResQ is conscious that the adoption process is a two-way street – you need to be happy with your new family member and they need to be happy being there! It is for this reason that pets going to a new family will first start there on a two-week trial to ensure that the new family unit is perfect for all involved. The adoption center is open to the public between Wednesday and Friday 4 pm to 7 pm, and on Saturday and Sunday between 10 am and 5 pm. What Does Midwest Animal ResQ Need? Running a non-profit animal rescue group isn’t easy and requires support from animal lovers like you. Midwest Animal ResQ has let us know the top items they would absolutely love to receive, and there are as follows: White copier paperKong toys (medium-large)High-efficiency liquid laundry detergentClorox brand bleachPaper towelsNew dog collars and leashes (they’re particularly short on small and medium sizes at the moment)Cat treatsSoft dog treats used for trainingDog biscuits (small and medium)Gift cards for stores that sell items for pets (such as Home Depot, Lowe’s, Petco, Brookside Barkery & Bath, Costco, Target, Sam’s Club, and PetSmart) Other items that are much appreciated are toys for cats and dogs, rope-style slip leads, large dog toys, large and extra-large litter boxes with hoods, large ceramic food bowls, waterproof grooming aprons, towels, hand towels, washcloths, 32-ounce spray bottles, OdoBan, digital weight scales for kittens and puppies, and digital thermometers.

Dog collars, cat donut beds, dry cat and dog food in unopened bags, high-grade pet shampoo, 6-foot and 11-foot white tables, sponges, scouring pads, batteries, stamps, and Air Wick plug-in refills are other ideas for donations. You can donate to specific causes at Midwest Animal ResQ. Donate to the Jellybean fund to help rescue dogs from bad breeding facilities. Donate to the Special Needs Medical Fund for those animals that need extensive medical care. Otherwise, simply donate to the general fund to benefit all animals rescued at Midwest Animal ResQ. All donations are tax-deductible by law. Furthermore, you may be able to help by donating your time rather than items. If you are an electrician, floor waxing service, brochure printer, professional banner printer, mason, or mechanic, you can choose to offer your services to Midwest Animal ResQ. Volunteers are also needed at the rescue center, so please feel free to talk to someone about this when you come into the event at Lee’s Summit Subaru on Friday, May 18. Whether you are interested in perhaps adopting a needy moggy or doggy, you want to help the cause by donating some much-needed goods, or simply want to get involved by entering the raffle and getting a load of free Subaru goodies, come to Lee’s Summit Subaru between 4 pm and 8 pm on Friday, May 18.

It is aimed at making our actions and the actions of our partners stand out.

In fact, families who enter Hillcrest Transitional Housing's program have a 95% chance of being self-sufficient at graduation, and an 80% chance of remaining so in 5 years' time! That's an impressive track record, and Lee's Summit Subaru is proud to help support the fantastic work that Hillcrest Transitional Housing is doing in Eastern Jackson County and across the region!

Put a little love in your heart! - Jason B

We started the year 2017 by inviting the representatives from each of the Subaru Love Promise events that we participated with all year of 2016 to come in and perform the song "Put a little love in your heart". Lee's Summit Subaru loves Hillcrest Transitional Housing, Summit Pointe Elementary, Midwest Animal ResQ, and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!


LLS & Subaru Loves To Care - Danielle S

Today LLS staff joined Jason Brink from Lee’s Summit Subaru at Lee’s Summit Medical Center to drop off 60 blankets, 50 care cards, and 10 care kits to patients currently going through cancer treatment. Jason took a moment to share with LLS and the Cancer Center staff why Lee’s Summit Subaru gives back, “We love giving back to the community because it lets people know we aren’t just another car dealer. We care about our community. Any dealership can spend money. We just chose to spend our money in our community.” Thank you Lee’s Summit Subaru!

This is our 2nd in store Pet Adoption Event this year in 2016 with Midwest Animal ResQ. All of the animals they brought this year all got adopted! The store manager even adopted one of them! There was so much love being shared that day, with all of the donations, spreading the word of what Midwest Animal ResQ does, and cars were even sold! Love, what makes a Subaru, a Subaru.

Lee's Summit Subaru loves to help - Jason B

Sometimes you run into a family that needs a little support and don't know how to get it or where to look. When we see a family struggle with illness, financial hardship, and manage all of it without a vehicle - it doesn't make sense to not help when we have the ability to do so. Families that love each other and support each other no matter what is exactly what the Subaru brand is built on - love. They need a car, we are there.

Butterfly Heroes - Jason B

During the Subaru Loves the Earth Initiative in April 2016, we sponsored the National Wildlife Federation’s Butterfly Heroes program. The National Wildlife Federation’s Butterfly Heroes program is designed to help increase monarch butterfly populations through the planting and building of habitats butterflies need to survive, while also raising awareness that 1 out of 3 bites on our dinner plates is made possible by pollinators. To support the effort, Subaru and our retailers worked to establish additional butterfly habitats in local communities across the country Check out the video Here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9ntFrplyhA

THE ALL NEW LEES SUMMIT SUBARU - JASON B

We started off the year with a complete new staff in almost every capacity. While recognizing the growth opportunities, we still embraced everything that Subaru Brand is accomplishing and the meaning behind the Subaru Love Promise Pledge. Doing so, we were able to accomplish the following: Donated to the Meal on Wheels, and the Lee's Summit School District and filled a Forester on the showroom with food and teacher supplies. We participated in the local Charity "Alex's Lemonade Stand" hosted by Alex Gordon with the Kansas City Royals. We hosted 2 separate bike events that raised charity for M.S. and a local food shelter called Crank out Hunger. In October we hosted our Pet Adoption event, pictured here. To end the year, we donated $2500 to Hillcrest Transitional Housing.
