Subaru Supports Local Loss Families - Lacey S

Ryker’s Rainbow is a Huntsville-based non-profit committed to serving families who suffer pregnancy, newborn or infant loss. Partnered with 8 hospitals in North Alabama, we offer bereavement boxes filled with gifts of remembrance, provide Sibling Support, and offer burial or final arrangement assistance. Ryker’s Rainbow was chosen as the 2021 Share the Love Event Hometown Charity by Lander’s McLarty Subaru and just recently we were rewarded with a check from the event. For every Subaru sold $250 was awarded to a charity of choice by the purchaser and we were floored when we received a check for over $24,000! With this generous donation, Ryker’s Rainbow will be able to assist over 250 local bereaved families in numerous ways, and most importantly, allow us the opportunity for our name to be out in the community as a resource for families who suffer such a great loss. Because of the support from Lander’s McLarty Subaru’s, countless doors have been opened for our organization from being connected to families during a time of need, to a spotlight shining on our organization as a local resource for many. We cannot thank Lander’s McLarty enough for the support of not only our organization, but also for their support of local families. We will forever remember and be grateful for the generosity of Frank, his employees and dealership, and the Huntsville community.

Bringing Light to the Community with Subaru's Help - Lacey S

To be chosen by Landers McLarty Subaru as the 2021 Hometown Charity for Subaru’s Share the Love Event has been an honor for our organization, Ryker’s Rainbow. Ryker’s Rainbow is a local non-profit started in memory of our son who passed away in June of 2020. Through our nonprofit, we support families who suffer pregnancy loss, or the loss of a newborn or infant by offering gifts of remembrance and meaningful keepsakes. Our assistance to families also extends to offering sibling support and financial help for final arrangements, a marker, or medical bills. Speaking out on the loss of a child comes with a number of challenges, but Landers McLarty Subaru gave us an incredible platform to not only increase awareness in our community, but to be a voice for all local bereaved families; an opportunity that does not arise often. In addition, it has allowed many to learn that an organization such as ours exists, and requests of our help for local bereaved families greatly increased since partnering with Landers McLarty for Share the Love. The loss community is a tight-knit group and the support within it is very strong. We have had a multitude of families reach out to us, in awe and so encouraged by the love that Landers McLarty is showing local bereaved families. We are forever thankful for Frank Williams, Carmelita Iglesias, and the entire team at Subaru. Every single person welcomed us, encouraged us in our “showroom takeover” and many even donated to our cause. The mission of Ryker’s Rainbow is to “Be the Light”. Landers McLarty Subaru has been just that, the light, for us and for so many families like ours. We currently have 7 hospital partners in which we support any family who suffers a loss while in their care, and also assist any family connected to us through the non-profit. With the help of Landers McLarty Subaru and the Share the Love Event, Ryker’s Rainbow will be able to assist far more families in 2022 than we ever imagined possible and has room to grow into even more partner hospitals.

Subaru Happy Tails - Rochelle S

After being pulled in late July from a hoarding situation, Ivy went straight into foster with one of the GHHS staff members. Her mange was one of the worst cases we have seen in a long time, and it took some time to put weight on her bones. On October 2, she was finally cleared to hit the town as a healthy, fully vaccinated pup – the Landers McLarty Subaru event was one stop she had to make! Although she was not adopted on-site her photos drew interest. Finally on Sunday, 10/17 she went home with her FURever family after a special meet and greet with her new human sister – who we have been told she is taking very good care of! Thank you Landers Mclarty Subaru for helping us create so many Happy Tails this month and over the years!

Blankets of Hope - Donna J

Blankets are an integral part of life. We all need the warmth that blankets provide. The Downtown Rescue Mission is grateful to be the recipient of a donation of blankets for our residents and those who are in need in our community. A blanket not only provides warmth, but it can also provide hope to someone in need by providing the comfort of knowing that others care. Whatever the cause of becoming homeless, there is always a human element to be considered and the smallest deed performed can provide hope and make the greatest difference to someone that goes beyond the moment.Thank you Landers McLarty for sewing a seed of hope in the heart of broken souls!

Subaru Loves the Animals at GHHS - Rochelle S

Year over year, Landers McLarty Subaru has gone above and beyond for GHHS. During October “Adoptober” 2021, our partnered campaign “Giving S’more to GHHS” was supported more than we could have ever dreamed. “Adoptober” kicked off with an adoption event on-site at Landers McLarty Subaru featuring adoptable dogs and cats on October 2nd. Additionally, over the course of the month, three carloads of pet food and supplies were donated and delivered to the GHHS animals – how PAWSOME is that?! Moreover, Subaru’s Pay it Forward program supported 52 GHHS animals finding their furever homes. THANK YOU, Landers McLarty Subaru, for your championing dedication to GHHS and animals in need!

Subaru continues its dedication to the Environment - Melanie M

Landers McLarty Subaru funded the installation of two new dog waste stations at Land Trust of North Alabama nature preserves. The stations, located at trailheads where visitors begin their hike, offer bags and a waste basket so pet owners have everything they need to clean up after pets and keep trails clean for everyone. By providing helpful amenities for visitors, we create convenient and welcoming spaces for the community to experience all the benefits of nature, including four-legged friends. Keeping all trails free of animal waste ensure both our environment and our trail guests are kept safe from any contaminants that could be spread through animal waste.

Subaru supports youth sports - Bryan D

PALS (Partners for Athletes and Leaders in Schools) loves Landers McLarty Subaru and greatly appreciates their commitment to be the title sponsor of our inaugural golf tournament in September 2021! PALS is a local non-profit whose mission is to provide supplementary assistance to teams, organizations and students involved in Huntsville middle and high school sanctioned athletics and band. In our 11-year existence, we have been able to support 53 grant requests totaling nearly $100,000 in support of such programs like band, football, cheerleading, cross country, baseball, golf, softball, bowling, etc. in the city’s school programs. These grants have reduced the burden of under-funded programs to purchase new uniforms, equipment, etc. Additionally, our grants have potentially lowered the fees associated with kids’ participation in school band and athletics for families that might not otherwise be able to afford their children’s participation. PALS’ grants have impacted hundreds of student athletes and band participants and enhanced their experience in these programs. Our inaugural golf tournament netted a profit to PALS of nearly $12,000. This is more than twice our previous annual fundraiser and 100% of that will support our mission of kids’ participation in band and athletics. Thank you, Landers McLarty Subaru, for your incredible generosity in supporting our inaugural event and giving back to the fine youth in our community!

Adopt a Classroom with Landers McClardy Subaru - Cheryl A

Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School Loves Landers McCLardy Subaru! I would like to personally THANK Landers McClardy Subaru for partnering with Adopt-a-Classroom and donating $3000 to our school. I received an email back in April of 2021 stating that MLK had been selected to receive this wonderful donation. Six teachers (ranging from Kindergarten to 5th grade) were selected to receive $500 each to purchase STEM items for their classrooms. They had 30 vendors that were available for them to "shop" and choose appropriate items for their individual grade level. Community partnership is extremely important. Having a strong connection with the community enhances economic growth. THANK YOU Landers McClardy Subaru for your partnership. We appreciate your generosity

Subaru cleans up 250lbs of litter! - David W

I want to personally thank Landers Mclarty Subaru for partnering with Operation Green Team to hold a cleanup event. We collected 63 bags of litter and approximately 250lbs of other debris with the help of your employees. During the cleanup we were also able to clear 3 storm water drains to help with water pollution, as well as possible flash flooding issues from drains being blocked with debris & litter. Subaru is an asset to the City of Huntsville. Not only does the company create jobs, offers great services & products but more importantly the company shows it CARES! Keeping Huntsville beautiful is the primary goal of Operation Green Team and without fine folks at Subaru we could not do so. Operation Green Team looks forward to working together with Landers McLarty for the betterment of our Community

Subaru helps to keep kids healthy all year long - Risha S

HEALS, Inc. non-profit organization in Huntsville, Alabama dedicated to providing accessible, quality, school-based, primary health care for children through collaborative efforts with the Huntsville City/Madison County school systems and the medical community. During these times of uncertainty, it is more crucial than ever that our services are available to the children of Huntsville City/Madison County to mitigate Emergency Room visits, treat chronic illness, and provide a safe and reliable place for their medical, dental, and optometry needs. Without partners like Landers McLarty Subaru, we would not have the ability to continue that mission. Landers McLarty Subaru is not only a champion for the community, they are part of the solution. Funding from Landers McLarty Subaru has helped us to continue to provide these services to children that need it the most. Throughout the last five years we administered over 3,500 vaccinations, provided over 5,000 medical visits, provided over 3,500 dental appointments, over 2,000 dental screenings, and over 500 optometry appointments - between all HEALS clinics. It is because of organizations like Landers McLarty Subaru that we can help children like “Katie” with severe asthma receive the medications she needs to survive. Unfortunately, our staff had to report Katie’s mother to the Department of Human Resources because she was not caring for the child properly and not filling her medications. Our physician, Dr. McDuffee was able to obtain samples from another physician in town and give them to Katie. Without your support we would not have be able to help “Maurice”, a fifth grader, was brought over from class for this exam, which includes hearing and vision screening. When Andrea, the nurse, began the vision screening it quickly became apparent that Maurice had a significant visual problem. Concentrating and cooperating as hard as he could Maurice could recognize no letters below the second line of the Snelling Chart! Andrea immediately phoned Maurice’s mom who said that Maurice’s grades had been getting worse and that he had complained of not being able to see well. She was surprised to learn that Medicaid would pay for vision exams and for glasses and eagerly asked for a referral to an optometrist that accepted Medicaid patients. When Andrea checked back with the mom later that day, she had already made an appointment for Maurice to receive the care he needed. She expressed her gratitude to Andrea and how happy she was that we were able to take care of Maurice without her having to take off from work. Without the convenient access to this routine screening, there’s no way to know how long Maurice would have struggled in class because of a physical condition easily diagnosed and treated. With corrected vision, he’s on the road to improving grades and being a successful learner. We sincerely thank Landers McLarty Subaru for their support which allows us to continue to provide the care that Katie and Maurice need, and the other thousands of kids just like them.
