What is the Subaru Love Promise?

Subaru and our retailers believe in making the world a better place and the Subaru Love Promise is our vision of respecting all people. This is our commitment to show love and respect to our customers and to work to make a positive impact in the world.

The Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment

We believe in being a positive force in something bigger. And it all starts right here in our community. Not just by our donations, but by our actions.

That's why we stay true to our Love Promise Community Commitment by partnering with a wide variety of community nonprofits and charities.

Every year, we join hands with our owners in the "Share the Love" event, giving back to our community-a community that's given so much to us.

So, every day, we strive to ensure our love is felt not just by our customers, but by all in our community. We do this because we feel it is the right thing to do.

We are proud to participate in the Love Promise Community Commitment. We're grateful, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve and support the causes and passions that are closest to our hearts, right here in our neighborhood.

All of the organizations we support have one thing in common: the unwavering dedication to improve the world and the lives of ­its people.

How is Landers McLarty Subaru - Huntsville dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Landers McLarty Subaru's Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non- profits. We are so very grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve in it as well. Our commitment to our community is reflected in our Annual Partners. We have dedicated ourselves to supporting select Charities each year by standing with them through donations, events, drives, and shining a light on their organizations. One such partner is the Greater Huntsville Humane Society, this partnership has given us the opportunity to donate supplies on behalf of our customers through donations for every Subaru Sold, we have been able to hold Drives (year around pet food drive, kitten toy drives, newspaper drives, etc), support their fundraising events, as well as promote them and raise awareness of their organization through various marketing efforts. Annually we as a dealership and as committed members of our community reach out to Land Trust of North Alabama to sponsor their various fundraising efforts. We are constantly engaged in various opportunities that benefit our communities. It is our goal to allow our community to know that we are not just another car dealership but that we are a company that wants to establish a long lasting partnership with the community that helps to support them.

Subaru Love Promise Heart

Love Promise Stories from Landers McLarty Subaru - Huntsville

Stepping Up for Kittens in Need  –  Shannon S

Cat toys are expensive when you need enough for 20+ cats. They also wear out, as toys do. At the Greater Huntsville Humane Society, we desperately needed to replenish the cat toy supply. All of the toys for the cats were worn out and the supply was almost gone. However, replenishing the supply can get very expensive and take dollars away from animal care. Landers McClarty Subaru stepped up to help. The Greater Huntsville Humane Society cats received a plethora of new toys. The toys were delivered in a very large plastic tote. The cats were so excited that several of them just climbed right up into the tub. The playing started right away. Thanks to the support of Landers McClarty Subaru, the shelter cats will have an ample supply of toys for quite some time.

Subaru Improving The Lives Of Homeless Pets  –  Rebecca G

I wanted to share how impressed I am with my local dealership's commitment to homeless pets. During a service visit, I heard about their partnership with the Greater Huntsville Humane Society - including how they were heading up a toy drive for kittens. This led to me learning more about their thoughtful contributions to the cause and how they serve as a drop-off point for donations. My family loves animals - all of our pets were rescues, so seeing their dedication was heartwarming. They informed me that one of the humane society's needs is newspaper. As luck would have it, I have a large excess of newspapers every week. It has become my weekly routine to drive 45 minutes each way to the dealership and drop off the newspapers, which they then deliver for me. As a woman, I never thought I would become comfortable at all in a car dealership, let alone comfortable enough to voluntarily go there regularly. The atmosphere there is unlike any other car dealership I have been in. I am always greeted warmly and the entire staff - from Nathan in sales to Kim in parts to Mark in service - treat me wonderfully and I have come not only to fully trust them with my car (my first Suby!), but to genuinely respect their service and devotion to bettering the community. This time last year, I did not know what a Subaru was, but I definitely know now. It is what all of our future vehicles will be - and Landers McLarty will be where they come from. Love. It's what makes a Subaru, a Subaru.

He was lost, but now he is home!  –  Darcy H

He was lost, but now he is home!

A missing 89 year old man with Alzheimer’s and heart issues in a rural area. A frantic family and a police department and rescue squad who need additional resources to look for him. That’s the mission of the North Alabama Search Dog Association. We train and field dogs that can find missing people. Our training is time consuming, requires specific certifications and for each handler to have certain gear and equipment. Landers McLarty Subaru supported our team with a fundraising drive to allow for more training and to assist with costs for certification. That support translated directly to one of our dogs teams locating the missing subject within 2 hours of deployment. Alive. In times of need, NASDA can stand ready to serve at a moment’s notice because Landers McClarty Subaru supports us and their community. We couldn’t do it without your support!

Disaster Relief - Kittens Rescued  –  Shannon S

Disaster Relief - Kittens Rescued

When a natural disaster occurs, animals are often displaced and in need of help. After hurricane Harvey and hurricane Irma, cities were in desperate need of help with animals that were left in the floods and nowhere to go. Shelters throughout the southeast, pitched in. One Georgia shelter needed to make room for animals from the areas affected by the two hurricanes. The Greater Huntsville Humane Sociey (GHHS) offered to help. However, we were in need of a transport vehicle that could hold all of the kennels that were necessary to transport the cats from Georgia back to Alabama. Landers McClarty Subaru stepped up. The dealership provided a large van for the trip. The van offered the room necessary to transport 23 cats and a multitude of kittens back to GHHS.GHHS is grateful for the help given by Landers McClarty Subaru. The dealership is always willing to lend a helping hand when GHHS has a need. Their generosity helped to provide a comfortable, safe place for these cats until permanent homes can be found.

Three Sisters  –  Jennifer L

Three Sisters

Recently three sisters, all under the age of 11, came from another part of the state to live with their aunt and grandmother in Huntsville. Their father is not involved in their lives, their mother is battling a substance abuse problem, and they have been homeless for a time. The aunt and grandmother, already working hard to care for two children and an elderly relative with dementia, were almost overwhelmed by the many needs of the three little girls. Thanks to your support, HEALS is addressing the medical, dental, and optometry needs of these children. The girls received the lice treatments and immunizations they needed. They are now enrolled in school, and the expanded family is doing well. With the support and generous partnership of Landers McLarty Subaru with HEALS, Inc., you’re extending a helping hand to children in our community who can’t help themselves. 09/08/17

An Unexpected Harvest  –  Josie T

An Unexpected Harvest

North Alabama Riders Saddle Club held a back-to-school supply drive to give back to local area schools in underrepresented communities. Landers Mclarty Subaru dealership was most gracious in hosting our supply drive event. Now, in our growing city of Huntsville, Alabama, it isn’t every day that you see horses at a car dealership. It was such a pleasure sharing our love of horses with the community and staff that day – even garnering a photo op with the owner & our little star – Sassy – a mini horse! Even though having the horses onsite at the dealership was intentional, there was one unintentional encounter that was a touching reminder of why we share our love for these animals with others. A mother and her daughter stop in to visit with us that day. The daughter was wheel-chair bound due to cerebral palsy and had underwent horse therapy several years ago and had not been in their company since. Too see how this young woman’s face lit up with the biggest and brightest smile of the day was a most unexpected harvest of gratitude for all parties involved. The young woman and her mother stayed and supported us to the end of our event – the young lady petting and loving on our “horse babies” the whole way through. Even though smiles are free, it feels as if they come at a premium sometimes – this premium, however, was priceless. Thanks to Landers McLarty Subaru for helping us bring in a harvest of supplies those in need – and an unexpected harvest helping us touch lives.

Committed to Healing with Heals - Emma's Story  –  Jennifer L

Committed to Healing with Heals - Emma's Story

At age 5, *Emma didn’t make eye contact and her speech was difficult to understand. There were concerns about autism. She wasn’t in kindergarten because she wasn’t potty trained. Her older siblings exhibited developmental delays and were in Special Education classes. Her parents seemed to have similar delays. The HEALS nurse advocated on her behalf, and soon Emma was enrolled in school. HEALS medical staff provided a complete physical examination, and referred the little girl to specialists for thorough evaluations of her vision and speech-language. Today, with glasses, speech-language therapy and some assistance at school, Emma has the opportunity to learn and grow to her full potential. With the generous partnership and support of Landers McLarty Subaru through HEALS, Inc., children like Emma receive the special care and attention they need. Your kindness and compassion touches the lives of children, not just today, but for many healthy tomorrows. (*name is changed) 08/04/2017

Blankets of Hope  –  Kate S

Blankets of Hope

On July 6th, Landers McLarty Subaru showed just how much Subaru “Loves to Care” for our community’s cancer patients. Algernon Hampton, Nicholas Greene, and Carmelita Iglesias of Landers McLarty Subaru, loaded up a special delivery into their Subaru Forrester, bound for Clearview Cancer Institute (CCI). For the second year in a row, Landers McLarty Subaru partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to deliver 70 blankets and care packages to cancer patients being treated at CCI. We were fortunate enough to be able to hand-deliver a blanket to a patient currently being treated at CCI. She was so excited to be given this gift of comfort, not only because it provided physical warmth, but because it symbolized the love and well wishes of people in her community. Landers McLarty is the perfect face of the #Lovestocare campaign, showing love to patients who need it more than ever! Thank you, Landers McLarty!

"Find Frank" on Land Trust Trails  –  Melanie M

Landers McLarty Subaru partnered with Land Trust of North Alabama this summer to get people out on our trails. They hid two Frank bobbleheads on the Land Trust’s Monte Sano Nature Preserve. We invited the public to “Find Frank” and return him to the dealership for a chance to win a prize pack. The prize pack included some Subaru swag and a Land Trust membership. Both organizations shared the search on Facebook, including hints about where the bobbleheads were hiding. The promotion highlighted one of our properties and raised awareness of the Land Trust’s work in our community, including the importance of membership. We saw great interaction on social media, including lots of comments and photos from the winners when they discovered each bobblehead. This was a fun, simple way to encourage people to visit our preserves and spread the word about our mission! Thank you to Landers McLarty Subaru for supporting us!

Newspapers for Puppies  –  Shannon S

Newspapers for Puppies

At the Greater Huntsville Humane Society, there are always puppies. We have a wonderful patio where our puppies can roam and play during the day. However, putting them in their kennels at night, can present a messy problem. We are always in need of newspapers for the puppy kennels to help keep them dry. It is such a simple thing, yet the shelter is always in need. Thanks to Landers McLarty Subaru, we are stocked. They collected newspapers for us in their showroom and delivered them to the shelter. This was during the height of puppy season when we had at least 2 large litters of puppies and a number of puppy pairs and individuals. The Landers McLarty Subaru team’s donation and continued support with newspapers, will help us a great deal and provide our puppies with dry kennels to sleep in at night.

Subaru and NWF Loves the Earth  –  Becky W

Subaru and NWF Loves the Earth

A HUGE Thank You to Landers McLarty Subaru for bringing us some garden goodies today!! We can't wait to put them to good use!!

Subaru and NWF Love the Earth!  –  Carolyn W

Subaru and NWF Love the Earth!

Amazing experience, we love our garden!

K-9 Emergency Solved  –  Stacy B

K-9 Emergency Solved

Thanks Landers McLarty Subaru for the first-aid kits provided to our K-9 unit. These kits will be used to protect our four-legged partners who put themselves in harms way to protect our officers and the community. Our dogs run the risk of injury just as our Human Officers do, unfortunately there are no ambulances for Canines. During emergency situations their human partners must administer emergency care until the dogs can be taken to a Veterinary. These First-Aid kits are specifically designed to contain items needed for dogs and the injuries they encounter. We only had two such kits, and Landers Mclarty Subaru stepped up and donated enough kits so that each K-9 team had one. HPD appreciates the continued support for our officers and the city we serve.

Protecting the Protectors  –  Stacy B

Protecting the Protectors

Big thanks to Landers McLarty Subaru. They recently purchased ballistic vests for the Huntsville Police Department’s newly formed Anti-Crime Unit. These vests will help better protect our officers as they serve and protect the community. These officers engage in highly tactical situations where regular vests do not provide enough protection. The metal plated vests aid in the protection of higher caliber shots such as riffle fire, keeping our officers protected. Thanks again Landers McLarty Subaru for your support of HPD in ways that directly impact our officers and for thinking outside of the box for ways to provide support to the community.

"I love my job"  –  Nathan H

I constantly comment that "I love my job", one of the many reasons for this, is the work we do with The Greater Huntsville Humane Society. Having Ursa in our show room, interacting with the sales staff, and our customers, you couldn't help but smile seeing her wagging tail, goofy grin, and bright eyes. Little things like this have a huge impact on the sales staff, knowing that we do more than just sell a great vehicle. Thank you Subaru, for allowing projects like this to happen.

Finding Ursa a Home!  –  Shannon S

Finding Ursa a Home!

The Greater Huntsville Humane Society often receives animals who have behavioral issues that have to be solved before the animal is ready to go into a permanent home. Ursa was one such animal. In order for her to be able to go into a loving home, she needed to work on her social skills. The challenge was that just the shelter was not going to be enough. Landers McLarty Subaru stepped up to help out. Ursa was able to spend a week at the Landers McLarty dealership with the staff and all of the clients. She was picked up at the shelter each day by a Landers McLarty staff member, spent entire day at the dealership, and was dropped back off at the shelter at the end of the workday. This was a wonderful, enriching experience for Ursa that also provided her a great deal of exposure in front of possible adoptive families. She crossed paths with a number of people between showroom staff, service staff, and all of the clients at the dealership.The goal was to socialize her and get her away from competition to hopefully find her forever home! Having the opportunity to spend a week at the dealership, helped Ursa to become a well socialized dog who was ready for adoption. This would not have been possible without the efforts of Landers McLarty. Now Ursa is ready for a forever home. Thanks to everyone at Landers McLarty for giving Ursa the time and attention she needed to ease her anxieties and prepare her for a happy life.

Puppies + Kids = Love  –  Danielle E

Puppies + Kids = Love

What could be better than kids, puppies, and books? When Landers McLarty Subaru found out about the "Paws for Reading" program (where kids are invited into the animal shelter to read to the animals), they just knew that they could help. LML Subaru connected us, the Greater Huntsville Humane Society (GHHS), with Country Day School and The Valley CW, a local TV station. Together, we organized a simultaneous puppy/kitten visit & literacy event. The kids were so excited to see the puppies and kittens in their library. The Valley CW filmed the event to promote the "Paws for Reading" program to our community. We've had so many new sign-ups for the program, and we owe it all to LML Subaru! What an amazing day & amazing connections!

Sharing the Love  –  Dorothy H

Sharing the Love

Kids to Love offers sincere thanks to Landers McLarty Subaru for sharing the love with us! The latest “Share the Love” campaign raised more than $16,800 to support Kids to Love programs and services. Landers McLarty put customers in the driver’s seat, allowing them to select which charity would receive $100 from each car sale. Kids to Love was among local charities on the list. We are honored that both Landers McLarty and its customers believe so strongly in our commitment to meet the needs of foster children. Kids to Love meets the needs of foster children, and operates multiple programs to carry out this purpose. Programs include providing school supplies and Christmas gifts during those seasons, offering college scholarships to students who want to continue their education, and a workforce training initiative called KTECH. Soon, Kids to Love will open Davidson Farms, a home for girls living in the foster care system. Kids to Love is a 501(c)3 foundation. You can read more about our purpose at www.kidstolove.org

Paws For Reading-GHHS  –  Stacie L

Thank you to Landers McLarty Subaru for promoting the Paws for Reading Program by the Greater Huntsville Humane Society. This program offers children the opportunity to read to shelter animals so they can improve their reading skills while helping to socialize all the animals up for adoption at the shelter.

North AL chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers Professional Chapter would like to thank Mr. Frank Williams, Carmelita Beaver, and Danny Justin, along with all of their staff, for their support of the 2nd Annual Golf tournament on July 29th of 2016. With their support and dedication, our chapter was able to provide students with scholarships and opportunities to attend space camp.

We, the North Alabama chapter of NSBE professionals, cannot thank you enough for the assistance that you and your staff provided throughout the tournament to help make the golf event a HUGE success.

Dawson Elementary Field Day  –  Yolanda D

Dawson Elementary Field Day

On 4/24/ 17 I went to Dawson Elementary to pay for my niece and nephew an 8$ wristband for Field Day on 4/28/17.. After paying I ask were all the students arm bands paid for and was told no, I asked what will those students do? Once again told they will not get the armband value which was Pizza Cotton Candy Chips and a Drink. I was crushed thinking my children would have and another child wouldn't. I reached out to some friends who said they would help as much as they could to purchase at least two for the kids. Then I called my friend Mr. Frank Williams over at Subaru, explained the situation and without hesitation Frank stated "How much is the total to make sure all the kids are taken care of? I gave him the total of 1600$, he replied come get the check! Thanks to Frank Williams Subaru of Huntsville Alabama Dawson Elementary School Field Day was a Total success! All the kids had a great time and no child was left without! Thank You SUBARU for giving back to our community. Sincerely, Yolanda De

Ability Plus & GHHS Partnership  –  Lindsey S

Ability Plus & GHHS Partnership

Landers McLarty Subaru has done it again! Not only do they continue to pour back into the community, they have helped to facilitate a working relationship between our company, Ability Plus, and the Greater Huntsville Humane Society (GHHS)! Because of their match making capabilities, we are now partnered with GHHS to allow some of our special needs individuals to love on the shelter animals once a week. This is something that our individuals thoroughly enjoy and I can imagine the animals feel the same way. Thank you again, Landers McLarty Subaru, for giving back to the community in more ways than one.

2017 Ability Plus Fun Bowl  –  Lindsey S

2017 Ability Plus Fun Bowl

A huge THANK YOU to Landers McLarty Subaru in Huntsville for sponsoring our 2017 FUN BOWL! Since 2004, Ability Plus has provided specialized services for intellectually and developmentally disabled individuals, offering residential care, day habilitation services and full time assistance throughout North Alabama. The Fun-Bowl event was aimed at raising money for our special needs individuals but it turned into much-much more. Not only did we raise $5000, but our Consumers had a BLAST making new friends and bowling alongside of them. Several of our individuals have already asked when the next event will be and we will be sure to host it again next year. Because of Landers McLarty’s generosity, we have established a new event to honor our individuals while promoting awareness of the special needs community in Huntsville, AL.

Saving Brinkley's Life  –  Danielle E

Saving Brinkley's Life

The Greater Huntsville Humane Society (GHHS) often receives pets that need love & medical attention. When one dog arrived with a medial emergency, we immediately contacted Landers McLarty Subaru for support. Brinkley, a 2yo american pit bull, suffered from a deeply embedded collar that cut off her airway. With Landers McLarty's support, we were able to raise $2250 towards Brinkley's life-saving surgery. A very big THANK YOU to everyone at Landers McLarty Subaru for sharing Brinkley's story & giving her a second chance at life!

Pet Food Donation Drive  –  Danielle E

Pet Food Donation Drive

As a no-kill animal shelter, the Greater Huntsville Humane Society (GHHS) is in constant need of pet food & donations. Landers McLarty Subaru hosts a year-round food donation area & donation box to help support the animals. All donated pet food is placed in our King's Kitchen program, the largest pet food bank in Alabama. Last year, we distributed 30,000 pounds of food to low-income families.

Puppy Party!  –  Danielle E

Puppy Party!

Landers McLarty Subaru helped new puppies & new cars find their forever homes! As a local animal shelter partner, the Greater Huntsville Humane Society (GHHS) was invited to the Impreza launch. We brought 4 chocolate lab puppies to promote our foster program. We had so many visitors and people interested in fostering, which will expand our reach & care for more animals. Thank you to Landers McLarty Subaru for lending a helping paw!

Subaru goes Red for Heart Month  –  Stephanie C

Subaru goes Red for Heart Month

Working with Landers McLarty Subaru in Huntsville has been amazing. They have allowed us to help save many lives in the future in Huntsville.On behalf of their customers, they donated a portable CPR kit for every Subaru sold during the month of February. CPR can triple your chances of survival during cardiac arrest. The problem we find is people are not familiar enough with CPR to preform it on someone until paramedics arrive. CPR kits are being distributed throughout churches and various organizations in Huntsville because of our partnership with Subaru. The American Heart Association can train 3 people with 1 CPR Hands Only kit allowing the public to become the first responders first responder.

Subaru Loves to Read  –  Renee H

A huge THANK YOU to Landers McLarty Subaru for donating over 150 books to Monrovia Elementary School. All 150 nonfiction books were distributed to our classrooms.

We are extremely thankful for your support in our community. Please let us know how we can support you as you support our community.

Green Team Supplies to Keep Huntsville Beautiful  –  Green Team H

Green Team Supplies to Keep Huntsville Beautiful

More than 80,000 people volunteered with Operation Green Team last year to maintain our beautiful, clean and green city! To keep the program going this Keep America Beautiful and Keep Alabama Beautiful affiliate provides a lot of supplies. Green Team is very grateful for the donation from Frank Williams and his team at Landers McLarty Subaru! With this donation we are able to provide reusable small canvas bags for individuals to place in their vehicles to help prevent items from being littered. We also can continue to provide litter pickup tools, vests and gloves for volunteers who want to make a difference at their school, in their neighborhood, along a street or in a park.

A New Bed for Every Shelter Dog  –  Danielle E

A New Bed for Every Shelter Dog

While we try to make life at the Greater Huntsville Humane Society as comfortable as possible, some home comforts are out of our reach. But Landers McLarty Subaru made a dream come true: a brand-new bed for every single dog in the shelter. The new Kuranda beds are designed for shelter use, which means they’re comfortable for our dogs as well as easy to clean. Most of our dogs were sleeping on well-worn beds or even blankets. Now they lounge & nap away the day on their new beds, and life is a little bit more normal. Our pups sometimes have to wait weeks or months before finding their forever home, but Landers McLarty Subaru has made sure they’ll have a nice warm bed to call home until then.

40 Dogs Adopted with $1000 Donation  –  Danielle E

40 Dogs Adopted with $1000 Donation

(Huntsville, AL) Landers McLarty Subaru has figured out the key to happiness: puppy kisses! For every Subaru sold in June, Landers McLarty donated to the adoption fees of the Greater Huntsville Humane Society. In the end, Landers McLarty donated $1000 to the GHHS adoption program! GHHS was able to offer discounted adoption fees for 40 dogs, which is huge for our small no-kill animal shelter. That’s forty homes with a new family member, and 40 doggie hearts that are happy at last. GHHS takes photos of the new families before they leave the building, and everyone loved posing with a Subaru bandanna & bobble-head of the local owner, Frank Williams. Landers McLarty Subaru believes in love promises that last a lifetime, and our community is so thankful for their support.

Free to Teach  –  Linda B

Free to Teach

Thank you. Two simple words defined as an expression of gratitude. Free 2 Teach is thankful and deeply grateful to Frank Williams and Landers McLarty Subaru for their Distinguished Partnership donation in support of our community’s public school teachers and their students. Free 2 Teach connects teachers in Madison County’s three public school systems with a multitude of resources to enhance classroom instruction and ensure that every child has the necessary supplies to succeed in the classroom. Free 2 Teach operates a teacher resource store filled with supplies funded and donated by the community, and made available for free to more than 3,800 public school teachers and their 52,000 students. It’s because of Frank and the Landers McLarty Subaru team that we are able to continue to support teachers like Amanda Garvin who shares that “Most people do not realize how much money teachers spend out of their own pocket for their classrooms each year. Free 2 Teach provides the basic supplies and so much more, which makes it possible to provide more instructional tools for the students.” Thank you Landers McLarty Subaru for your commitment to our students, our teachers and our community!

Childrens Miracle Network  –  Cayleigh C

Childrens Miracle Network

Children’s of Alabama and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals would like to thank Landers McLarty Subaru for its generous support. Landers McLarty Subaru graciously donated $100 per every car sold during a specified campaign time to benefit Children’s of Alabama. Since 1911, Children’s of Alabama has provided specialized medical care for ill and injured children, offering inpatient and outpatient services throughout central Alabama. Ranked among the best pediatric medical centers in the nation by US News & World Report, Children’s provided care for youngsters from every county in Alabama, 41 other states and eight foreign countries last year, representing more than 677,000 outpatient visits and more than 15,000 inpatient admissions. Your support is an investment in the future of children in this state and puts us one more step closer to ensuring that all children in Alabama have access to world-class health care - children like Miles Brown of Biloxi, Miss. Miles is an active boy who enjoys ports and playing outdoors, but a few years ago, his activities were limited by constant pain and limited mobility caused by juvenile arthritis. Soon after beginning treatment with pediatric rheumatologist Dr. Matthew Stoll at Children’s of Alabama, he began to improve. Today he plays soccer – and successfully battles imaginary ninjas.Our patients, their families, and our staff thank you for making miracles happen. Thank you again for your support!

Be a Hero

Monte Sano Elementary School is pleased to have the support of Landers McLarty with the "Be A Hero Project" from Subaru Loves the Earth. Monte Sano Elementary is located in Huntsville, Alabama and backs up to the Monte Sano State Park. We are certified by the National Wildlife Federation as a Certified WILDLIFE Habitat. The school property provides the four basic habitat elements needed for wildlife to thrive: food, water, cover, and places to raise young. We have on our property a Butterfly Garden, an Outdoor Classroom, and two bat houses. The collaboration with Landers McLarty is well needed, because it will allow our 2nd grade students to plant butterfly milkweed seeds in their 2nd grade planter boxes. They will take the "Ranger Rick Pledge" and check out the great adventures from Ranger Rick's Notebook. These activities are perfectly aligned with the curriculum that is provided to our school from the National Wildlife Federation, and the hands-on component is exactly what the students and teachers enjoy at Monte Sano Elementary School. Thank you so much Landers McLarty Subaru! Melissa Veasy-Lindsey, Principal Monte Sano Elementary

Flint MI Water Drive  –  Dave G

Flint MI Water Drive

Landers McLarty Subaru and Frank Williams not only care about the Huntsville community, but are willing to step up and help when other areas are in need as well. The Cumulus-Huntsville radio stations partnered with the Flint (MI) Huntsville radio stations to do a water drive for the crisis happening up north. Frank, Carmelita and the entire team at Landers McLarty Subaru immediately jumped on board and served as a drop-off location for the residents of the Huntsville community to contribute. Over 2,500 cases of water were collected and will be delivered to residents of Flint. This event could not have happened without the generosity of Landers McLarty Subaru and the people of Huntsville. Thank you for being such a great partner! Dave Greene Vice President / Market Manager Cumulus Media Huntsville, AL

Driving out Cancer  –  Emily T

Driving out Cancer

In October 2015 Landers McLarty Subaru held a month long event to "Drive Out Cancer". Customers could come in and test drive any car on the lot and make a donation to the Liz Hurley Breast Cancer Fund at Huntsville Hospital Foundation. Landers McLarty Subaru would then match that donation. They topped it off with a personal appearance and special test drive by Liz Hurley herself! We advertised this so that customers could come by to meet and have pictures made with Liz while she was there doing her own test drive. Landers McLarty Subaru and the community raised $2000 from this event and donated it to the Liz Hurley Breast Cancer Fund. This gift will go toward purchasing cutting edge equipment for the Breast Centers at Huntsville Hospital and Madison Hospital. We thank the team at Landers McLarty Subaru for their friendship and support in this program and look forward to making it an annual event.

Cold Weather, Warm Hearts  –  Cassie S

Cold Weather, Warm Hearts

Christmas Charities Year Round is so thankful for the generosity of Landers McLarty Subaru and Pinhook Provisions for partnering together to bring warm coats to our clients during this extremely cold winter. One of the biggest needs for pre-k and school-aged children is warm coats. Many times when we arrive early in the morning to start serving at a school, we notice many children are outside waiting for the doors to open without warm clothing. This is due to their parents not being able to afford a coat for all of the children in their household. Since we started our Mobile Closet, we have been able to donate over 2500 articles of clothing to our Title I schools in our community. During December and January, it is extremely hard for us to keep enough coats to supply our children in need. That is the reason this event with Landers McLarty and Pinhook was so important. It helped us restock our coat closet so that we could continue to serve our children in the community. After giving a little girl a coat at Morris Elementary, she replied with glee, "Now I do not have to share a coat with my sister. We can both wear a coat on the same day!" Once again, it is because of organizations like this that we are able to continue our mission to serve those less-fortunate in the community.

Dog Ball  –  Danielle E

Dog Ball

Landers McLarty Subaru upped the ante this year at our biggest annual fundraiser, The Dog Ball. This cocktail event features 50 of the best & brightest local dogs strutting their stuff down an elevated runway. The Dog Ball also includes a sizable silent auction and live auction of real fire hydrants painted by local artists. The Dog Ball typically generates over $100,000 for the Greater Huntsville Humane Society, and we are so excited for its 47th year, themed "Puparazzi" with an old school Hollywood feel. Subaru sponsored this spectacular event and also brought out a show-stopping SUV with dog photos placed in the windows! Our guests loved the pet-themed Subaru, and it integrated well with the pet-loving crowd. Thanks again to Landers McLarty Subaru for sponsoring such a special night!

Dog Food Drive  –  Danielle E

Dog Food Drive

I work at the Greater Huntsville Humane Society, and we are so thrilled to partner with Subaru. When we first met with Landers McLarty Subaru, we exchanged many ideas and event plans with long leadtimes, but they also immediately started a food donation bank. Our pet food pantry, King's Community Kitchen, distributes over 30,000lbs of food a year to needy families. Many local people can't afford to feed their animals, and pets starve while in their care. The program is short-term, with a 6-month limit, and helps many people get through a financial slump while also ensuring the health of their animals. King's Kitchen is run solely off public donations, and we sometimes run out of food, since the need is so great. Since Landers McLarty started gathering food, we haven't run out in over 3 months. They've given a tremendous amount, and have coordinated and communicated at every step. We count ourselves very lucky to share our community with them, and look forward to future efforts. Landers McLarty Subaru is truly saving lives of animals, and we think of them every day. Attached is a photo of our small food storage room, completely packed with donations.

Landers Mclarty Subaru car show/Grand Re-Opening  –  Lee M

Landers McLarty Subaru revved up its commitment to Kids to Love in September, hosting a fundraiser to benefit the charity in conjunction with the dealership's Grand Re-Opening. A Family Fun Day complete with food, prizes and a car show brought out a crowd to support Kids to Love. Car enthusiasts competed for top honors in various categories, and the general public took their chances with a raffle, taking home gifts ranging from Subaru merchandise to a big screen TV. The big winner of the day, however, was Kids to Love and the foster children they serve. Donations for the day totaled nearly $700! Landers McLarty's partnership with Kids to Love is 4 years strong, and growing. The company is a leading sponsor for Kids to Love's annual programs, including a school supply and Christmas drive. Their financial commitment reaches into the thousands, but their dedication to the greater good through charity is priceless. www.kidstolove.org
