Making Christmas Bright - Rachel W

Flemington Subaru is proud to help support the hard work of The Outreach Connection during their Adopt-a-Family Holiday Gift Drive. Founded in 2018, The Outreach Connection is on a mission to help those in the most vulnerable situations. They not only offer tangible support in the distribution of food, clothes, household goods, or other essential supplies but also offer programs aimed to assist individuals to acquire the skills that will provide them with a more stable, successful future. Providing essential living items such as food, clothing, hygiene supplies and household basics allows money that would otherwise be used for those items to go towards other necessities including heat, utilities and other bills. In addition, volunteers offer mentor-ships, connections to other resources, and enrichment classes designed to help their clients to acquire personal and professional skills for success. To date they have helped hundreds of families in the Hunterdon and Warren County areas. For more information on how you can help contact the Outreach Connection at https://theoutreachconnection.org/.

Flemington Subaru Loves to Care - Karin C

Flemington Subaru knows its important to take care of those who take care of us. That's why we were proud to share a little love with our Friends at Hunterdon Medical Center this year. A cornerstone of our Hunterdon County community since 1946, the Hunterdon Medical Center has never meant more to this community than in 2020. During the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Hunterdon Medical Center admitted 8,031 patients, had over 26,570 Emergency Department visits, and over 590,000 outpatient visits. 500 individuals were admitted to the hospital with COVID-19 and over 50,000 tests were performed in both the inpatient and the outpatient setting. As a way to show our appreciation for all their staff did, Flemington Subaru donated more than 400 sweet treats to the hospital staff to show their appreciation. Chosen as our hometown charity for Subaru’s Share the Love Promise for the past four years, we are grateful for the dedication and determination of the staff and for all they do for our Flemington area community.

A Promise of Love to An Underdog: Stitch’s Story - Gabrielle R

A Promise of Love to An Underdog: Stitch’s Story The Hunterdon Somerset Animal Rescue Center frequently visits over-crowded shelters in search of homeless dogs and cats in need of rescue. On one particular day, in a busy city shelter, we found the tiniest little dog, Stitch! The two pound chihuahua was so frightened to be in the shelter, and he was very skinny, and missing most of his fur. We knew right away he would be delighted to be rescued, and so we agreed to take him with us. The first few days in his foster home were a challenge; he was skittish and would tremble when nervous. His coat was sparse and he was so dirty, needing several baths to render him finally clean. He was very underweight, yet still, finding food to his liking was difficult. He would eat only one bite of food at a time, so he was fed every three hours, to ensure he would eat as much as possible and as frequently as possible. He was afraid of the other dogs in his foster home at first, and would tremble and hide under the covers of his bed. With each passing day, he became a little more comfortable. First coming out from his bed to eat, then to interact with the other dogs, and finally to solicit attention from the volunteers. Stitch had been found as a stray, and a good samaritan brought him to the shelter to be sure he was safe, cared for and off the street. He was held for several weeks in the shelter prior to his rescue, but sadly no owner ever came forward to reclaim him. Though we did not have much information about his history, as he became comfortable it was clear he was highly domesticated, preferring to be held or sit in someone’s lap, rather than to sit alone. He was a senior dog, and very fragile weighing only two pounds. We were worried that it would be difficult to find someone willing to adopt a senior dog. A couple of weeks passed, and finally we received a very special call. An adopter was interested in Stitch! Her tiny senior pet chihuahua had passed away a few months prior, and her remaining chihuahua was so lonely without a friend. Just as Stitch had somehow lost his home and loved ones, this new family was missing a chihuahua companion. The adopter and her adorable remaining chihuahua, Guppy, made the trip to meet Stitch. They all became friends instantly, each offering the other the love and companionship they had been missing so much. Stitch did so well during his meet that he was offered a place in their hearts and home that very day, and was adopted! HSARC receives updates almost daily showcasing the incredible new life that Stitch now has, with his new mom, Emily, and his very best friend, Guppy! Thank you so much to SUBARU for their incredible generosity and support of shelters and rescue groups; Subaru’s generous donations and promotion of animal rescue helps us meet the needs of a tremendous number of urgent rescue animals, just like Stitch. During the month of October, publicity from SUBARU and Hunterdon Somerset Animal Rescue Center together facilitated the adoption of 37 homeless dogs and cats from over-crowded high-kill shelters. These animals were ALL underdogs for the pure fact that they were homeless and would have been euthanized in crowded shelters if not offered rescue placement. Amongst them, more than half of the animals had special needs, being either blind, emaciated, with serious skin conditions, requiring limb amputation, or needing special emergency surgeries to save their lives, and to provide them with a comfortable quality of life. Thank you so much to Flemington SUBARU for your tremendous part in helping save the lives of so many homeless rescue animals, for your incredibly generous donations, for always standing up for the Underdogs, and for promoting rescue adoptions of homeless animals from shelters and rescue groups!! Thank you so much, Subaru! #SubaruLovesPets #MakeADogsDay #NationalMakeADogsDay #ThankYouSubaru #FlemingtonSubaru

Nomad The Subaru Outback That Did it All - Joseph S

Dear Subaru, I wanted to take a moment to tell you of our wonderful seven year, 207,688 mile 2010 Subaru Outback journey. We bought our used 2010 Subaru Outback at Beyer Ford in Morristown, New Jersey on May 29, 2013 with 46,000 miles on it. Our Subaru has been through everything with my family over the past 151,688 miles and has never let us down, left us stranded and has kept us safe doing it. Everything from cancer treatments, kidney stones, emergency room visits, camping trips, vacations, trips to Beach Haven West, NJ, bicycle rides along the Delaware River and the Jersey Shore, kayaking, fishing, college moves and visits, skiing, food delivery in a foot of snow, driving to work, going to the recycling center, going to food drives, going to beach clean ups, picking up furniture and snow blowers, picking your Mom up for Mother’s day dinner, going on a date with your wife, picking up construction material for your house lifting project, drive 700 miles and 3 states away to pick up a fishing kayak with your son in one day, going to church and funerals and as one of its last missions getting us through a Covid-19 pandemic. Wow! I mean really, whatever my family has asked of this car, it has delivered and then some without a hesitation and just kept going. To say the least, we really loved our Subaru Outback and were very sad to see it go last week. Our Subaru needed way to many expensive repairs like a second timing belt, a new exhaust, tire pressure monitors and a major power steering repair. Last week with the help of a wonderful Subaru Ambassador named Darlene Miller at Garavel Subaru in Norwalk Connecticut we ended our journey with our 2010 Subaru Outback (AKA Nomad as we called her) and started a new Subaru Outback journey. We decided that if our last Subaru was so great that we would just get another Subaru Outback and continue the Subaru Love. Darlene Miller was truly one of the nicest people and Subaru representatives we have ever dealt with. She was a great communicator with emails, phone calls and texts. This was very important since we were traveling 80 miles from Cranford, NJ to Norwalk, CT to buy our used 2017 Subaru Outback from Garavel Subaru. Darlene Miller took the time to answer all our questions in person about the Subaru Outback and observed all Covid-19 health precautions doing so. This was a very big concern of ours and everyone at Garavel Subaru took this very seriously. This really put us at ease. Thank you Garavel Subaru! Darlene Miller walked us through all the safety features of the 2017 Subaru Outback. We are now happier than ever with all the added safety features. We now know that we will always be safe in our 2017 Subaru Outback no matter where it takes us. It’s so easy to give praise to someone who truly embraces what they do with Subaru Love. Darlene Miller is a true ambassador of the Subaru product and totally exceeded our used 2017 Subaru Outback car buying experience. I wish Darlene Miller and the rest of her Garavel Subaru Team a happy, healthy and prosperous 2021. As for the Sokolowski Family from Cranford, New Jersey we can’t wait to begin our new 2017 Subaru Outback Journey. Keep up the great work Subaru! Regards, Joseph Sokolowski130 Mohawk Drive Cranford, NJ 07016

Flemington Subaru Participates in United Way of Hunterdon Diaper Drive - Debbie C

United Way of Hunterdon County Diaper Drive June 1, 2014 According to United Way of Hunterdon County, in a baby's first year he/she will have used an average of 2,788 diapers, at a cost of approximately $1,200.00. 1 in every 3 American mothers struggles to find the funds to purchase diapers for their children, often cutting back on basic needs such as food, utilities, and child care to offset the expense. On the other end of the spectrum, a growing senior population in the County struggles with "adult incontinence". Nearly 3.7% live in poverty. Because they can't afford these products, many incontinent but otherwise healthy adults stop leaving the house, becoming virtual shut-ins for fear of embarrassing accidents. Associates from all departments brought packs, cases and bags full of diapers to the company's annual picnic. Along with its sister dealerships, Flemington Subaru collected 3,816 diapers!
