Fred Beans Subaru Meet and Greet with Lindy - Carolyn P

Lindy's early life wasn't the greatest. Her owner's moved and left her to die tied up in a laundry bag in their yard. Neighbors heard her after 3 days and brought her to the local shelter in SC. One of the shelter volunteers fell in love with her and adopted her. They had a great life together. Lindy would go to work with her mom and everybody loved her. Unfortunately, earlier this year, her mom died from cancer and Lindy had nowhere to go so she joined Almost Home Dog Rescue in July but hadn't found the right family for her. Lindy went to a meet and greet event at Fred Beans Subaru in October and everyone loved her, several staff members wanted to take her home, including the volunteer who picked her up from the event to go back to her foster home. It turned out that that volunteer adopted Lindy and she had several other takers if it fell through. The entire dealership just fell in love with this special dog. She is now a beloved member of a family. Pictures of her with her new dad and watching her mom sign her adoption papers are included. Thank you Fred Beans for helping to get her to her new family!

Make A Dogs Day - Carolyn P

Thank you to all who participated in our Meet & Greet adoption event. Our Subaru Loves Pets Initiative is always a big hit with our customers and the Doylestown Community. Despite the current climate of the pandemic, the turnout was amazing! The beneficiaries were our furry friends, like Lindy who were able to be placed in caring homes. Lindy, an older dog, can also be hard to place, but her temperament made her a "Fan Favorite" among the dogs hosted by our Charity, Almost Home. Fred Beans Subaru was happy to provide the facility and we hope donations will help offset the hard work by our local volunteers. Thanks for all you do!

Lunch & Learn - Jacqui M

Autism Cares is our designated hometown "Share the Love" Charity... We were invited to speak to our community and employees about the services that they provide to those on the Autism Spectrum. Managing Director, Jacqui Makowski, was our featured speaker. She explained the challenges that are now presented to families with post-high school age citizens with autism. Where does support pick up when school is over? How can we help them become functional in the working world? Are there vocations they can learn? And most importantly who is going to take on the task? This is where Autism Cares steps in. They offer services to post high school aged men and women with Autism, teaching them ways to become self-sufficient and lead a purposeful life. Jacqui also talked about the continuous group events that they organize and how much families appreciate being with other families who understand what it takes to care for people with special needs. Everyone in attendance now has a greater understanding of the struggles, they face every day. It's an amazing commitment where parents to try to find balance in their lives while tending to the special needs of their loved ones. We can only hope that our contributions through "Share The Love" and the exposure to the community will help Autism Cares help those in need. If you would like more information on the program feel free to reach out to them with any questions @ https://autismcaresfoundation.org/

Starting the Harvest - Eileen A

The Hope of the Harvest is a consortium of farmers and volunteer organizations that help provide fresh produce for the food banks of Bucks County Pennsylvania. The Farmers, who participate, donate a portion of their crops as they harvest them throughout the year. The crops are delivered to a central locations where they are packaged and distributed by volunteers through charitable organizations. Delaware Valley University, in Doylestown Pennsylvania, has a large Agricultural Science Program. They have their own farm and market that features their crops as well as those from local growers. We at Fred Beans Subaru volunteer at the farm throughout the year. Our first assignment this year was planting potatoes. The students work with the volunteers making it a learning experience as well. We've learned a lot about plants and growing. The program is a great example of how volunteerism and education can work hand in hand to develop skills and provide nutrition for those in need. We are very proud to be associated with the farm through our partners at the Bucks County Opportunity Council.

Tools for Learning - Eileen A

Fred Beans Subaru sponsored a first grader by purchasing the supplies needed to attend his first big day. The Back to School Sponsorship Program is arranged through the Bucks County Opportunity Council. As a sponsor you receive the list of necessary school supplies for the student. A backpack full of necessities was dropped off to the council for delivery to the student in need. Memories of #2 pencils, glue sticks and pencil boxes all come back from the past. We hope that by fulfilling these needs, a young boy can attend his first day of school with a little less anxiety and be prepared with the tools to learn. Subaru and Fred Beans Love Learning!!

We Are Family - Helene E

From the time we parked our car at Puente Hills Subaru, we felt welcomed. Lloyd, our salesman, greeted us like long lost family members. He listened...really listened, and helped us find the perfect car for our needs. We left with a Brand new 2015 Outback that we love! We have taken many road trips in comfort: moving our daughters in and out of their college dorms and enjoying all the southwest has to offer on vacations. My Outback also takes me to school everyday. I would love to fill the car up with school supplies for my second grade class!
