Subaru of Moon Twp donates $25000 to Make-A-Wish - Stephanie P

Dear Maureen, Associates at Subaru of Moon and Customers: We would like to thank the associates of Subaru of Moon Township for continuing to raise funds as the Make-A-Wish Hometown Charity during the Subaru Share the Love Campaign. On behalf of Make-A-Wish Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia, we are acknowledging your incredible gift of $25,803.04, received on March 31, 2021. According to IRS regulations no goods or services were exchanged for this wonderful donation. We are delighted to recognize Subaru of Moon Township as a Wishmaker in the Make-A-Wish annual report, newsletter and on our website. We are thrilled to inform you that funds raised during your campaign will help to grant the wishes of five very deserving kids. For 38 years, our chapter of Make-A-Wish has been successfully granting life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses, and we’re committed to continuing our mission during this current pandemic. We’ve been busy meeting with wish kids and their families through virtual sessions, we’ve stayed in touch with our many wish volunteers, and we are busy creatively planning wishes for these amazing children – wishes that are safe, heartfelt, and full of wonder and hope. Inez At 18-years-old, Inez from Pittsburgh has been through some tough times living with sickle cell anemia. The pain from this disease is startling for this young woman who just wants to be with her friends eating Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, dancing it up to Nicki Minaj and playing volleyball. But instead, she has been spending much of her time when not at the hospital, at home watching Law & Order SVU and cuddling with her dog. When she can go to school, she enjoys her Spanish and African American history classes. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic Inez was visited by her Make-A-Wish volunteers virtually helping her along to find the perfect wish for this teenager. Originally, she had wanted to spend time at the Orlando theme parks – but due to travel restrictions, this wish was not possible, and Inez was determined that she did not want to wait. So, more contemplating had to be done. Finally, Inez decided that a virtual shopping spree would be the best wish. She could get almost anything her heart desired and since she was moving into her first apartment, she needed lots of stuff. She gave her list of items to her excited volunteers and they went to work finding her an iPhone, a new mattress and bedframe, a TV, Ugg boots to keep her warm this winter, a pretty ring, a beautiful new wig and a hair straightener. Inez also received a gift card to Ichiban Steak House to be used at some point in the future. Helping Inez along with her future goals is exactly what Make-A-Wish is for. Now Inez can live comfortably in her new surroundings assured that she is loved and cared for. Jacob At just 10-years-old this young man from Rochester, PA has had a tough life. Most of his time has been spent in a wheelchair due to his diagnosis of Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy. But this does not stop him from cheering on his favorite superhero when watching Batman movies, reading about dinosaurs and playing matching games with his siblings. He can practically eat an entire pizza himself and a quick stop at McDonald’s is the perfect dinner. His referral to Make-A-Wish was extremely exciting, and he could not wait to meet his volunteer team. Before they even sat down during their visit, he told his volunteers that a trip to Disney World would be the greatest. It was decided that the beginning of March 2020, would be a good time for the trip. As it turns out, this was one of the last wishes to the Orlando theme parks due to the rise of the pandemic. The family had the opportunity to stay at Give Kids the World Village, not far from the parks. The villas were beautiful, and this young man got to stay in the master bedroom with surprise gifts left in his room each evening after returning from the themed parties held each night. There was even a swimming pool with a wheelchair ramp he could utilize to get easily into the cool water after a fun-filled day at the parks. March is a busy time at Disney, but due to his Make-A-Wish button this youngster wore everywhere he went – he was able to go to the front of every line making him feel incredibly special. The time he spent with his siblings riding the amusement park rides, watching the 3D shows and meeting his favorite animated characters was joyful and memorable. We’re honored and privileged to have fulfilled the wishes of five special children and we remain so grateful to our generous donors for making what we do possible. Best wishes, Stephanie Pugliese Director of Development

Trick or Treating at Animal Friends with Subaru - Tricia P

Subaru of Moon Township and Animal Friends teamed up on October 25, 2020 to bring tail-wagging Halloween fun to our four-legged friends in the community.

Guests’ pets were also welcomed to pose in front of a brand new car from Subaru of Moon Township, participate in Bobbing for Hot Dogs and Find the Treat in the Pumpkin Patch.

2019 LLS Light the Night Walk - Jonathan B

Every year, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society hosts the Light the Night Walk in cities across the nation. These walks are designed to raise funds for cancer research and patient support services. Below is an excerpt from their website: "The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk funds treatments that are saving the lives of patients today. LLS is making cures happen by providing patient support services, advocating for lifesaving treatments and pioneering the most promising cancer research anywhere. And it's all happening now. Not someday, but today. Each year friends, families and coworkers form teams to raise money in support of our mission." This year, Subaru of North America (SOA) partnered with local Subaru retailers as a corporate sponsor for this event. For three days leading up to the event, SOA drove a 2020 Subaru Outback to each Pittsburgh regional Subaru dealership where employees and customers signed the vehicle and wrote messages of hope to current cancer patients and cancer survivors. Together with individual donors and team donors, the event raised $633,982 for the LLS to further their mission. Subaru of Moon Township is grateful to have had the opportunity to support an amazing cause, impacting lives across the country. To get involved in your local Light the Night Walk, go to www.lightthenight.org to learn more. Thank you to everyone who participated to make this event one to be remembered.

Sending Love to Children’s Hospital - Breanna S

Subaru of Moon Township recently partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Western PA & WV Chapter to deliver warm blankets, messages of hope, and craft kits to cancer patients at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC for the fourth straight year. Sales Consultants Ralph Batykefer and Bryan Bonham personally delivered the donation of 80 blankets and 30 arts and craft kits to Kathi Exler from Children’s Hospital. Kathi and the team at Children’s will hand these gifts out to kids receiving both inpatient and outpatient chemotherapy treatment, as well as those in the Radiation Oncology Department. Kathi thanked Ralph and Bryan on behalf of everyone at the dealership for thinking of their patients once again. The arts and craft kits are always a big hit with the kids, and even in the middle of summer, they can always use blankets because patients tend to get cold during treatment. LLS is grateful to Subaru of Moon Township for making this wonderful program possible! Many thanks to everyone at Subaru of Moon Township and Children’s Hospital for their help, and for supporting LLS’s mission to cure blood cancers and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

Alzheimer's Association Golf Outing - Peter M

I co-host a small charity golf outing for the past six years with a friend of mine. We've been raising money to donate to the Alzheimer's Association for the past few years and have had success in growing each year. The most effective way for us to raise money is through a Tee Sponsor program, where a local business donates money to the charity and in return has a sign in a tee box on the day of the event. After purchasing a vehicle from Day Apollo Subaru and returning again to purchase another one because of the good experience I had, I reached out to the staff asking if they would be willing to make a donation and be a part of our golf outing. Within ten minutes I received a response letting me know that they would be happy to contribute, and by the next day they had sent their contribution. With the help of Day Apollo Subaru and our other 36 Tee Sponsors, we were able to raise $10,000 making this our most successful year by far! It's so nice to have a car dealer that you can trust, and it means even more that they will support you in other ways without hesitation.

Donation to Merakey Allegheny Valley School - Dorothy G

Day Apollo Subaru in conjunction with the Pittsburgh area Subaru retailers and Subaru of America made a $1,000 donation presented to the Merakey Allegheny Valley School in Coraopolis, PA. The donation was presented to Dorothy Hunter Gordon, Executive Director for the School during the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Association’s sponsorship night. Dorothy said she is pleased to have Day Apollo Subaru, the Pittsburgh area retailers, and Subaru of America partner with the school. Merakey Allegheny Valley School (Merakey AVS) is a non-profit organization which provides homes and a full range of services to individuals with all levels of intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). The majority of the more than 800 individuals in our care are diagnosed with severe or profound IDD. In addition, most of the people we serve have multiple physical disabilities, extensive medical complications and may require supports for challenging behaviors. Merakey AVS operates facilities in nine Pennsylvania counties: Allegheny, Beaver, Bucks, Butler, Dauphin, Lebanon, Mercer, Montgomery, and Philadelphia.

Red Cross Blood Drive - Rachel B

We worked alongside the Red Cross to hold a Blood Drive at our dealership. With all the hurricanes and other issues, our country is facing there is a shortage of needed donors and the blood supply is running low. We had the pleasure of working with Rachel Bennett from the Red Cross in setting up this event which turned out to be a huge success. I spoke with the nurses on the coach and they stated to me that the response we received and the number of donors that came out was a surprise to them. We had 40 registered people to donate and the nurses were having a hard time keeping up with the people. To make the event even more fun we asked the help of the Girl Scouts to help pass out gift cards to people that donated. We were very clear to our staff and to the customers that came for the event that the purpose of this was to help with our community. It was not a sales event. We want to make this an annual event and the representatives at the Red Cross are excited to come back.

Day Apollo Delivers Hope to Kids With Cancer - Breanna S

Day Apollo Subaru swooped into Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh on July 13th to save the day. Partnering with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), the dealership provided a surprise for the young patients bravely battling cancer. Brandon Denk from Day Apollo not only brought brand-new tote bags, arts, and crafts kits, and blankets for Children’s patients, but also took the time to deliver these gifts one-on-one and spent time getting to know the cancer-fighting kids. One of the little boys he sat down with had a superhero shirt on, and the two started talking about their favorite superheroes. The patient loves Captain America and thinks it’s cool that Captain America can use his shield to protect himself and throw it at bad guys to keep them away. Brandon told the little boy that his treatment is like Captain America’s shield: it’s a weapon against the bad cancer cells but keeps the rest of him safe. “You’re a superhero, too,” said Brandon as the little boy beamed and hugged his new blanket to his chest. LLS is so grateful to Day Apollo Subaru, Subaru of America, and their customers for making this inspirational (and fun!) day possible not only for this little boy but also for the dozens of other patients who will benefit from the generosity of this gift. This day was a reminder that families who are fighting cancer are never truly alone when they have the support of others around them. Thank you, Day Apollo Subaru, for using your powers for good and caring for your community.

Day Apollo Subaru & Make-A-Wish Foundation - Walter W

This year, Day Apollo Subaru has selected the Greater Pennsylvania & West Virginia as their Share the Love Hometown charity for 2018. I could not be happier with that choice, because I am an employee at Day Apollo Subaru, and have had a personal experience with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Our son Brent M. Winschell was diagnosed with Down Syndrome with a wide range of developmental delays and physical disabilities caused by a genetic disorder also known as chromosome 21. This condition cannot be cured. He was on a heart monitor and oxygen tank for the first six months of his life. He was in the hospital for two weeks and then was transferred to TIC (Transitional Infant Care) in Oakland, PA where he stayed another month before we could bring him home. Brent still has health issues to this day but with medications, Doctor visits and most of them are manageable. When Brent was seven years old we applied to Make-A-Wish Foundation for Brent to become a possible candidate for their program. Our request was granted, and Brent became a Make-A-Wish child. At seven years old and with his problems with oral communications, my wife Linda and I thought Brent would love Disney World because he loves theme parks, the characters, rides and the food. Make-A-Wish granted our family’s wish on Brent’s behalf to Disney World. We stayed at “Give Kids the World” its own gated community in our own single-family home. Every morning there was a gift left at the front door for all our kids. They also had the mayor (also a character) that upon request would come every and any evening to read Brent a bed time story. There were so many rides, games, a restaurant, a couple of pools and an Ice cream parlor within the community of Give Kids the World. We could have stayed there every day and Brent would have loved it. Of course, we then go to Disney World and once again the red carpet was rolled out. We all were wearing t-shirts that said Make-A-Wish on it and a badge “Give Kids the World”. The employees at Disney are trained to give Brent and our family all the attention that anyone could ever ask for. The sincere service and kindness was truly remarkable. Make-A-Wish is an unbelievable charity organization with such a wonderful cause that truly changes the life of the child and family. We are so thankful and appreciative for the kindness of people that contribute to such a great cause, and happy that Day Apollo Subaru is partnering with them to help more people in our area.
