Community Friend - StepUp Greensboro - Ashley M

Since moving into our new building and updating our furniture to current Subaru designs, we were left with quite a bit furniture we no longer needed. Most of the furniture was in great shape, so we began searching for someone who could make use of it as a donation. At the same time, our community friend StepUp Greensboro was moving to a larger facility. The timing could not have been better! StepUp Greensboro is a local charitable organization that has a mission of motivating, equipping and empowering local individuals to become self-sufficient and stable through employment and life skills training. They have worked with hundreds of men and women since 2011. The basis for the success of their program is compassionate accountability, collaboration, and the firm belief that every person has the right to pursue a better life. We were finally able to tour their new facility on August 4th and we were amazed! With how outstanding they are as an organization, we maybe should not have been amazed at all. More than anything we are grateful to have been of service to a group who does so much for our community!

Capital Subaru Partners with David D. Jones Elementary - Ashley M

For Subaru Loves Learning 2022, we have partnered with David D. Jones elementary school. This school was recommended to us by our much loved Subaru Ambassador Kevin S. and we could not be more excited! Beyond being an English/Spanish fully immersive school, their reading, math and science scores are above state average, they have a phenomenal music program and they have gardens where their students can learn about the earth. You can really tell how much this school cares about their students. We were able to meet the faculty on August the 16th and present our classroom kits. We look forward to getting more involved!

Many thanks to everyone at Capital Subaru of Greensboro and Cone Health Cancer Center at Wesley Long, not only for a memorable day, but for supporting LLS's mission to cure blood cancers and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

Capital Subaru of GSO Supports Golden Rescue - Faye W

Capital Subaru of Greensboro and Triad Golden Retriever Rescue (TGRR) started working together right before the beginning of the pandemic. Capital Subaru sponsored our first Hearts of Gold gala and silent auction event in February of 2020. The Subaru employees were so excited to celebrate rescue Goldens and socialize with others of the same heart. With Capital Subaru’s sponsorship, and lots of donated auction items, we were able to have a successful event and raise over $5,000 for TGRR. In 2020 and 2021 we were delighted to participate in the October 22nd Subaru Loves Pets/Make a Dog’s Day event at Capital Subaru. Ashley Murphy and Emma Phillips helped plan and coordinate the day. They provided social media support, a space for making a few educational videos, and a display Subaru on the day of the event so visitors and volunteers could take their dog's picture in front of a cool new Subaru with fall decorations. Our dogs also loved receiving their stuffed Chewbaru Outbarks at this year’s event! In 2020 we were awarded a generous grant from ASPCA/Subaru for being involved in the Subaru Loves Pets promotion. The grant helped us provide medical care for our dogs, which is typically 75% of TGRR’s costs. Since COVID, we have had increased medical costs from the dogs we take in our program due to people giving up their dogs when they are unable to afford their care. We also have had owners turning in dogs in 2021 that they bought or adopted during 2020 that were not trained or socialized due to the pandemic. We are grateful to Capital Subaru for their continued support.

Capital Subaru Loves our Subaru Ambassadors! - Ashley M

One of our amazing Subaru Ambassadors reached out with an idea on providing Comfort Cases to the Children's Home Society of North Carolina. Comfort Cases is a company that sources and fills backpacks and duffel bags with age appropriate self-care and self-worth items. These bags are geared toward helping our youth enter the foster system with dignity. The Children's Home Society is so very important to our region that we couldn't resist joining him! We are so happy to have learned about Comfort Cases and we owe a huge thanks to Kevin S. for including us.

Now What for Widows - Ashley M

For many years we have chosen Now What for Widows as our Share the Love local charity partner. During a year when isolating was a priority, and considering that this is a part of our community that can already feel so isolated, we appreciated the service that this group offers more than ever. While properly following CDC guidelines, we briefly met with members again to share the donation from 2020's STL Event on May 28th! This group is so gracious, but really, the pleasure is always ours.

Triad LUNGe Forward 5K - Ashley M

For the 5th year in a row, we were able to sponsor the Triad LUNGe Forward 5K in November 2020. This great event is hosted by the Lung Cancer Initiative of North Carolina. They had to do it a little differently this year due to Covid-19, but we all made it work with a live stream of the run and virtual booths.


Make a Dog's Day 2020! - Ashley M

We had so much fun during this year's Make a Dog's Day. During the week of the event we were able to promote our Pet Partner, Triad Golden Retriever Rescue and some of their friends. Through TGRR we were able to make a connection with Dog Gone Fun, Tri City Canine and The ArcBarks Dog Treat Company. We hosted a social distancing block party on the 22nd with all as our guests and in front of our new facility. Through the event, and accompanying grant, we were able to help 5 special needs/elderly dogs get adopted. This year was even more rewarding than the last!

Frontline Healthcare Hero - Ashley M

In June of 2020 Capital Subaru of Greensboro proudly awarded a local frontline healthcare worker with a New Subaru. The selection process was determined by community nomination and the winner was chosen with an online contest held from May 1st-15th. The prize was a delivery of a brand new 2020 Subaru Forester to drive for a year, at no cost to the winner. This was the way that our dealership felt they could give back to the healthcare community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our winner was Ms. Wendy Munro!
