Subaru recognizes front line workers - Mark H

Landers McLarty Subaru partnered with a local TV Station, WAFF, to shine a light on those who sacrificed so much throughout the pandemic. Nominations of local front line workers were submitted from January to March, each week a winner was selected to receive $250! These workers went above and beyond the call of duty during these trying times! Landers McClarty Subaru believed it was important to give back to those who gave us all so much over the past year. Shalea Riggs, a first responder who received the $250, administers anesthesia for emergency surgeries shared that " Covid-19 has impacted my life drastically and the world as we know it, I am so ready for life to get back to normal! Being recognized by my community and Landers McLarty Subaru brought so much love and happiness back into my life! Thank you!" Latoya Holmes, a nurse at a nursing home, and received one of the weekly $250 donations, said "I never imagined myself living & working through a global pandemic, especially with those who are most at risk. I work with those who are most at risk, people I love and care for daily! I was worried, scared, and nervous every day going into work! But I have to feed my family, put a roof over our head, and most importantly care for those who no longer can care for themselves, the residents. So, I go to work daily. Even with all the precautions taken at the home ( PPE, eliminating family visitors, constant testing) we still had positive cases. The positive cases meant I could no longer come home and kiss/hug my girls which broke my heart daily. This has been a truly difficult time for my family, myself, and the residents. Having been chosen as the recipient of the $250 gift gave me a glimmer of hope that I could make it through this and my community is behind me. Thank you Landers McLarty Subaru! WAFF would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Landers McLarty for this gift to our community!

Feeding the Community through the Love of Subaru - Bobby B

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen a surge in people seeking food assistance for the first time in their life. From an older couple in Albertville who had to make the hard decision to leave work in the early days of the pandemic because of medical risk, to a grandmother in Huntsville trying to make sure her young grandchildren have enough to eat while school was out to a family in Tuscumbia trying to learn how to find food assistance for the first time. Because of the help Subaru has provided to us through the Subaru Loves to Help campaign, we've been able to distribute more food than ever and help more people in need than ever. Because of the support of corporate partners like Landers Mclarty Subaru, we were able to distribute over 13 million pounds of food last year both directly to people through our increased mobile pantry program or through our network of over 250 feeding partners, including homeless shelters, halfway homes, women's shelters, food pantries and soup kitchens.

Subaru Activity Boxes for the Kids! - Regina M

We would like to express our deepest gratitude to Landers McClarty Subaru for the activity lunchboxes! Our Toddler scholars used them for a fun afternoon activity. They were so excited to open the boxes and explore the contents! Their faces lit up and they were thrilled to find new crayons, markers, and the activity/coloring books! We even added some additional activities for math learning as well! Our scholars will be able to take these home and enjoy them with their families. Thank you, Subaru for the dual-use lunchboxes and education activities!

Subaru makes a child’s dream come true - Tracy G

I’m a single mother with two children serving in the military. I have a passion for adventure and I realized it was my turn to give back to the community. I got involved with the Alabama Make-A-Wish foundation. I will be representing Madison County as I train, raise money and walk in the 2021 Trailblazer challenge, a one-day 26.3 mile hike. I’m fundraising so more deserving kids and their families can know the happiness, relief and renewal a wish can bring. Thanks to Landers McLarty Subaru for partnering with me to help give back to our local community. There are currently over 275 individuals, with critical illnesses on the wait list. The wishes range from a deep-sea fishing excursion, being a super hero, meeting a famous athlete, a hike, or as small as building a snowman. My passion is to dream big and always have something to look forward to. Frank Williams and his team at Landers McLarty Subaru has helped this dream come true and has put smiles on faces across our local community. I encourage everyone to get involved with Alabama Make-A-Wish. It will absolutely change your life by showing you how much your time and energy can help the community’s most deserving children. The staff at Landers McLardy Subaru has been truly amazing for supporting my weekly hikes at Monte Sano, Rainbow Mountain, Green Mountain, and Blevins Gap in support of my upcoming 26.3 mile hike. The goal is to grant more than 95 wishes this year. These life-changing wishes are only possible because of supporters like Frank Williams and his Subaru team. A wish experience can truly change a child’s life, and so can we. PS, Dream Big!!

Christmas Love from Subaru - Hollie B

The Harris Home for Children is more than just a foster home; it is a private, non-profit agency providing full-time foster care services and crisis support for neglected adolescent children in and around our community. As the only emergency crisis agency in the state of Alabama, when children unexpectedly find themselves without a safe space to sleep, or wondering where their next meal will come from, the Harris Home for Children is often the only place to turn. The Harris Home for Children has served hundreds of children throughout its numerous decades serving the Huntsville community and the state of Alabama as a whole. Many of the children are with us a short time, while others spend months or even years living with us. Due to this many of our youths spend their holidays in our care. In 2020, as the Covid-19 Pandemic spread throughout the country, and around the world, the Harris Home for Children faced budgetary challenges. This could not have come at a worse time as the Board of Directors had recently made the decision to purchase a new home located on more than 6 sprawling acres in order to provide a home for more children. To date, the Harris Home has seen a loss of approximately half a million dollars. This budgetary shortfall was becoming even more clear to us as the holidays approached and we were deeply concerned about how we would provide a Christmas for these children. It is tremendously important to us that these children have a Christmas, just as any other child would. These children have found themselves living with us due to no fault of their own. Oftentimes they are required to leave their homes with little notice and come with very few possessions. They are confused, angry, and hurt. Here at the Harris Home for Children we believe in providing a living situation that is as close to “home” as possible. This includes celebrating holidays, birthdays, and other major events in these children’s’ lives. So as the holiday season approached, we were of course, genuinely concerned, but that is when Landers McLarty Subaru presented us a wonderful opportunity to be a Hometown Charity partner! Through this partnership we were able to receive not only $250 for every new Subaru sold, but they also hosted a Christmas stocking drive for our children! We usually house anywhere from 30 to 40 children in our various programs and Landers McLarty Subaru took on the challenge to make sure they all had a wonderful Christmas morning. We were able to ask the children what they would like to receive in their stockings and their wish lists were attached to their empty Christmas stockings and placed around the Landers McLarty Christmas tree in the showroom. Throughout the months of November and December Subaru’s amazing customers and employees took their empty stockings and filled them with love! While we needed, at most, 40 stockings, by the end of the drive Landers McLarty Subaru had collected almost 200 stockings filled to the brim with everything a pre-teen or teenager could want. From the highly sought-after headphones and gift cards, to the simplest luxuries like new socks and underwear, the employees and community members truly made a difference for our children this year. On Christmas morning the children excitedly met in their living room and looked for the stocking with their names. Inside they found not only the wonderful gifts, but also hand-written notes reminding the children of how much their community loved and supported them. This small act of kindness makes all the difference for children who are truly looking for love and comfort in what has become a confusing world for them. Things like, “This is the best day I have had this year!” and “I really can’t believe I got these!” were heard throughout the morning. Hearing things like this really mean the world to us as we always strive to bring not only food and shelter to these children, but joy as well. Frank Williams and the team at Landers McLarty Subaru helped to make that happen this year. The Harris Home for Children provides room and board, educational support services, life-skills training, and transportation. The Harris Home for Children could not be more appreciative of the generosity and support that we have received from Frank Williams and Landers McLarty Subaru. Happy Holidays!

Subaru - The Gold Standard in Giving! - Regina M

We would like to express our deepest gratitude to Landers McClarty Subaru for the Share the Love- Hometown Charity Campaign. During this time, Village of Promise was able to set up an angel tree to request items for the children and families we serve. When we arrived to pick everything up, we could not believe it! We received thousands of items including: diapers, wipes, classroom & office supplies, lunch boxes, snacks, and clothes for the kids! As the coronavirus COVID-19 Pandemic continues everyone is trying to stretch a dollar. These donations will help us continue to serve our families. We have many families that take advantage of our daycare programs, and many of these families are unable to provide diaper bags or changes of clothes. These donations will allow us to keep the children in our care dry, clean, and healthy! This amazing act of generosity would not be possible without Landers McLarty Subaru. The thousands of items will allow us to serve families attempting to break the poverty cycle while keeping much needed funds to be applied elsewhere. We would like to thank Mr. Frank Williams, and his team for giving us the opportunity to share our organization with their amazing customers. They have become the gold standard in how to run a successful campaign, and we graciously thank them for their partnership.

Dear Subaru, a letter of love - Jessica L

I would like for you to know the impact that the YMCA has had on not only my children’s lives, but on my life as well. I am a single mother with two children, and I relocated to Alabama seeking to start my life over, including removing myself and my children from an abusive relationship, I had with their father. The YMCA is located within minutes from my parents’ house, and I decided to look into the childcare options there so that I could seek employment. The YMCA Director gave me multiple options for financial assistance and was able to enroll my children in the daycare at very little cost to myself. It was such a blessing. My kids learned a lot and were able to interact with other children on a daily basis, and this majorly helped their development. If I had any issues with payment, the staff worked with me, including providing scholarships that I now understand are funded by donors in our community, like Landers Mclarty Subaru. We have come a long way since moving to Alabama, and I feel that none of this would have been possible without the assistance, kindness and compassion we found at the YMCA! Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do for my children and myself.- - a YMCA Early Childhood Education Scholarship Recipient from Frank Williams and Landers McLarty Subaru

Being selected as a Hometown Charity Partner for the Subaru Share the Love event has been a huge opportunity for the Harris Home for Children as the organization can receive a $250 donation for every car sold. We know that can add up quickly! We are grateful for this amazing program that we know is going to make a significant impact on the challenges the organization is facing. In addition to the financial donation, Landers McLarty Subaru has also facilitated a donation drive which will provide Christmas stockings for all of the children who live at the Harris Home. Their generosity of Frank Williams and his team means that not only are they helping to ensure these children continue to have a place to call home, but that they also have something under the tree on Christmas morning. These children, who have ended up in foster facilities at no fault of their own, deserve a Christmas just like any other child, and Landers McLarty Subaru is making that happen. Currently the Harris Home for Children provides room and board, educational support services, life-skills training, and transportation. The support of Landers McLarty Subaru means that the children will have what they need including furniture, toiletries, bedding, linens, cleaning supplies, food, and of course, the Christmas that they deserve. The Harris Home for Children could not be more appreciative of the generosity and support that we have received from Frank Williams and Landers McLarty Subaru. Happy Holidays!

Thank you Subaru, for lighting up our Community - Regina M

The Village of Promise is a Family Advancement Center founded to address the needs of children and families in distressed, high poverty neighborhoods. Together, with our community partners and investors, we provide educational programs, sustainable tools, and opportunities that empower children and their families to advance out of poverty. We provide a continuum of educational programs and services, birth to career, with the goal of leveling the playing field between socioeconomic backgrounds. How do we help families move forward? Each Village of Promise family develops an “Individualized Family Advancement Plan” that addresses four key areas of their lives: Education, Social and Emotional Growth, Physical Health & Wellness, and Professional Development. We provide programs and a support system that empowers each family as they strive to reach their goals. Like many organizations, the impact of COVID-19 has required adjustment. The Village has restructured our educational offerings and implemented new safety measures to better serve our community. This transition would not be possible without the support of partners like Landers McLarty Subaru. We are honored to have been selected as a recipient of Subaru’s Share the Love Event. Frank Williams and his team make resilience possible and have helped The Village be a resource for our community when they need us the most. Thank you Landers McLarty Subaru, for being a light to our community!

Subaru makes sure students still get field trips. - Bart W

Like most educational systems throughout our nation, north Alabama’s educational systems have been forced to make operational policy adjustments in order to provide safe and healthy environments for their students and faculty. While all the new policies are important and must be in place, they have caused the school experience to be vastly different than in past years. During this unprecedented time, schools in the north Alabama community have been restricted from taking school/class field trips. We can all remember the excitement that we had, as students, when it was “field trip day”. As a class we got to go to a museum, a zoo or maybe a theater performance – it was by far one of the best days of the school year and we never forgot the experience. Realizing the educational and social importance of field trips, Frank Williams and his Landers McLarty Subaru team set out to make a difference. In partnership with the EarlyWorks Family of Museums, Subaru created a field trip scholarship fund that provided “family field trips” to local students and their families. Since schools are currently prohibited from taking field trips, Frank Williams and his team made it possible for more than 600 families to experience a “Family Field Trip,” at no charge, during the first two weeks of November. “This was a very special time for so many kids, and their families. Thanks to Landers McLarty Subaru, not only did students still get to go on an educational field trip, but they got to experience the EarlyWorks museum with their family members,” stated Bart Williams, Executive Director of EarlyWorks. Frank and the team at Landers McLarty Subaru are true community partners, they are always stepping up to help. Whether the issue is big or small, Landers McLarty Subaru is always there to help.

Subaru’s #PayItForward Saves Pets During Pandemic - Lane C

Like many nonprofit organizations, the Greater Huntsville Humane Society has struggled to adapt to the challenges presented by the Coronavirus pandemic. We strive to provide the best care to all the animals that enter our shelter but with funds dwindling, we desperately needed assistance. Once again, Landers McLarty Subaru stepped in to help raise money through the #PayItForward campaign where with every Greater Huntsville Humane Society adoption through the end of October Landers McLarty donated back $100 to care for the pets still at the shelter. They also helped by taking donations at their dealership, delivering food and toys on Make a Dog’s Day and Make a Cat’s Day, and sponsoring weekly Pet of the Week segments on WAFF 48 News so that our adoptable animals could be seen by the community. As a result of slowed adoptions, likely due to coronavirus as many are quarantining and not coming in to view adoptable pets regularly, we are not only faced with limited funding but also limited space. Homeless animals do not have the luxury of staying home with their families like we do during this time because they simply do not have one. This is just one of the stories of the underdogs that Subaru helped us save this month. In early October, we were approached about a cruelty case that included a senior dog who had found herself homeless and pregnant at a very old age. She gave birth to nine puppies who all, unfortunately, became ill with parvovirus. Just like coronavirus requires us to quarantine, so does parvovirus. As such, this mom and puppies had to be quarantined from the rest of the population at GHHS. They were in isolation in our thrift store, our biggest fundraiser, which has been closed since the beginning of the pandemic. The quarantine period is followed to ensure that parvovirus isn’t spread to other puppies in our care--after all, puppies can’t wear masks! On top of treating her puppies for parvovirus, GHHS also performed a heartworm test on the mother dog and it came back positive. Heartworms are extremely costly to treat and fatal if left untreated. These types of special medical cases simply would not be in our budget at this time if Subaru had not stepped in to help but also to make their day!

Subaru provides meals and care for the Elderly - Cathie M

Many Tennessee Valley businesses and nonprofits have been hit hard by the effects of the pandemic and the Senior Center is no exception. Our services are provided to Seniors age 60+ at no cost, so fundraising is critical. In 2020, the Senior Center replaced two fundraising events that normally raise $50,000 each with virtual fundraising in order to keep the Senior Center fully functioning so we will be here for our members when we re-open. We reached out to the community for help. Landers McLarty Subaru is known in the Tennessee Valley as having a servant leader heart. Frank Williams and his Landers McLarty Subaru staff answered our call for help and generously donated over $10,000! These funds will not only bring food to those who are among the most vulnerable via our Meals on Wheels program, but will also help us provide Center for Adult Day Care, homemaker services, Rock Steady Boxing for Parkinson’s patients, and a wide variety of physical fitness and recreational activities to keep our members functioning as fully as possible. For over 46 years Huntsville-Madison County Senior Center has been a community jewel, providing a unique combination of care services and enrichment programs for those 60 and older. We seek to improve our clients overall health by providing exercise and creative classes, recreation opportunities, and wellness education. Subaru autos are known for being among the safest cars on the road. Just as their cars help save lives, it is partnerships with caring community friends such as Frank and his team that often makes the critical positive difference and adds so much to our quality of life in North Alabama. Thank you for caring!

Part of the Solution - Heather M

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. Due to COVID-19, we had to suspend operations at two of our four medical clinics from March through September. All of our dental services were suspended entirely for the first two months. We were able to continue operations at our two busiest clinics Martin Luther King, Jr and Madison Cross Road Elementary. This allowed us to provide continuity of care for children in the City of Huntsville and Madison County. Despite the impact from COVID-19, we have seen 358 dental visits and 444 medical visits from April through September. However, this was a significant decrease from the same time last year when we saw 641 dental visits and 519 medical visits. Because of this decrease in operating revenue, we now rely heavily on our community donors like Landers McLarty Subaru to help fill that gap. Due to their donations, we are able to sustain operations and also open all of our medical clinics. We have also had to increase the amount of personal protective equipment (PPE) in order to keep our staff and patients safe. You can see one of our dentists and hygienist pictured here with multiple layers of PPE now required to care for a child. This also increases our cost of operating the clinics. We have had to rely on donations to be able to sustain the amount of PPE required. We are very grateful for the continued support from Landers McLarty Subaru. It is this great partnership that allows us to continue to provide medical, dental and optometry care to children living in poverty within our community.

COVID-19 threatens childcare, Subaru saves it! - Jessica L

During the COVID-19 pandemic, our Huntsville area experienced another crisis as well: a lack of affordable, quality childcare for families who had to return to or continue to work. The Heart of the Valley YMCA reopened our Early Childhood Education Centers with hygiene, mask and social distancing policies in place to protect our children and teachers, and we continued providing scholarships for families in need. Though we will never turn a family away for the inability to pay for our programs, we needed help fundraising for our scholarship program this year. That is when Landers McLarty Subuaru stepped in. They committed to matching every dollar we raised (up to $10,000), and all of these funds will go directly to our families who need financial assistance in our Early Childhood Education Centers across north Alabama. To date, we have raised $27,000 and provided scholarships for over 50 families! This would not be possible without the support of Landers McLarty Subaru and their willingness to ALWAYS give back to our children, to our families, and to our community. The Y is so grateful that parents do not have to choose between providing for their families and keeping them safe while they continue to learn and grow.

Subaru brings love and nourishment to the hungry! - Megan L

A determined mother with a family of six receives a lifeline through encouraging words and food from the Rose of Sharon Soup Kitchen. Every month Mrs. Perkins comes and receives a food boxed filled with non-perishable food items, produce, milk and meat. She knows that in her life filled with children, a husband always on the road for work and struggling financially, she can always depend on the smiling faces at the Rose of Sharon. In Mrs. Perkins testimony she calls The Rose of Sharon “a major blessing” and the staff “truly God sent people”. Landers Mclarty Subaru became the answer when they graciously offered a vehicle to the Rose of Sharon after our van broke down after many years in service. This van is the soup kitchen's means of picking up food to distribute these food boxes to those like Debbie in our community. In fact, the Rose of Sharon provided 358 food boxes to families in June of 2020. These families are not the typical families we usually see. Since the Covid-19 pandemic our number of people served has increased by 30%. Including families from a different social-economic status that would have never reached out for assistance. Furloughed engineers, nurses, and food service personnel have flocked to the Rose of Sharon to get the needed food to sustain their households. Since the pandemic ravaged our community in March of this year, 11,762 meals were served through our ministry. In July alone, 4,140 were served onsite at the soup kitchen to those struggling to feed their families. The Rose of Sharon Soup Kitchen strives to be a ‘Haven of Hope’ during these uncertain times. Without an operating vehicle, it would be impossible to pick up the food needed to distribute. Thanks to Landers McLarty Subaru and Frank Williams, The Rose of Sharon Soup Kitchen can bring love and nourishment to those who most need it in our community.

Subaru stands against Child Abuse! - Cynthia P

Pinwheels are symbols of childhood, summer light, breezes, that sense of abandonment of a child; they are also the symbol for Child Abuse Prevention month and of the National Children’s Advocacy Center(NCAC). Each spring, pinwheel “gardens” are planted to recognize and honor supporters of the children served at the NCAC, and as a reminder to all that our children are our most precious gift. Landers McLarty Subaru was the site of a pinwheel garden in late Spring of 2020, in thanks for the support for the children of our community who have suffered sexual or physical abuse. When a child discloses abuse, they come to the NCAC for care, healing and support. At the NCAC, a multidisciplinary team works collaboratively to investigate the case, provide medical care, therapy services, family support, and prosecution of the abuser – all at no cost to the child and their family/caregiver. It is a tough day indeed when a child comes to the NCAC for the first time, but over the course of time and treatment, each child is able to recover from their abuse and move on to lead happy, whole lives, unblemished by the abuse. This care is made possible, this healing is reality, because of the support of the team at Landers McLarty Subaru! The NCAC and the children of our community thank you for your selfless generosity and care!

Puppy Emergency Solved by Subaru - Anne C

The Greater Huntsville Humane Society is an organization dedicated to saving as many animals from abandonment, displacement, cruelty, and neglect as we can. This spring and summer have been among the toughest we’ve experienced. For example, in June we received a litter of eight puppies that were approximately 6 months old. They were covered in sores and cuts and many were missing the majority of their hair. Turns out, they were diagnosed with demodectic mange. This diagnosis came along with being positive for parvovirus and many other ailments. Treating just one puppy for these illnesses, in addition to providing our standard vaccines and intake vetting, is incredibly expensive. Multiplying that cost by eight makes it nearly impossible for us. We are completely funded by donations, sponsorships, grants, and fundraisers. The cost to bring these puppies back to full health was nearly impossible for us to cover, especially after suffering the economic impact of Covid. We began a fundraising campaign in an attempt to collect the money needed. And just when we were running out of time, Landers McLarty Subaru stepped up to cover the medical care needed! Without the emergency support from Landers McLarty Subaru, these puppies would not have been given a fighting chance and we are unspeakably grateful. Landers McLarty has been a longtime supporter of our mission and them granting us this money during a time of crisis speaks volumes to their commitment.

Subaru provides a Home - Reginald M

The Harris Home for Children, located at 1210 Church St. in Huntsville, is more than just a foster home; it is a private, non-profit agency providing full-time foster care services and crisis support for neglected adolescent children in and around our community. As the only emergency crisis agency in the state of Alabama, when children unexpectedly find themselves without a safe space to sleep, or wondering where their next meal will come from, the Harris Home for Children is the only place to turn. Since its founding, the Harris Home for Children has provided a home and support services for more than 3,000 neglected children and those in crisis situations. We strive to be more than a foster home by providing these children with more than a bed to sleep in. Currently the Harris Home for Children provides room and board, educational support services, life-skills training, and transportation. The Harris Home has recently purchased a new home in order to provide a safe space for more of our area’s children! Located at 9906 Memorial Parkway, this new home will house 9 boys between the ages of 13 and 18 and will free up space for more children at the organization’s current location on Church Street.The support of Landers McLarty Subaru means that the children will have what they need including furniture, toiletries, bedding, linens, cleaning supplies, food, and more.

Fighting Food Insecurity while Sharing the Love - Jessica B

Monday, April 20, 2020 - The timing could not have been better for CASA of Madison County to receive some good news from Subaru of America and Landers McLarty Subaru. Last year CASA of Madison County was selected as Landers McLarty Subaru’s “Hometown Charity” for Subaru of America’s Share the Love Event. During the months of November and January, customers who purchased or leased a new Subaru vehicle selected from a list of charities to receive a $250 donation from Subaru of America, CASA of Madison County was one of those options. Landers McLarty Subaru also hosted a community wide wheelchair ramp build and coordinated a needs drive that focused on food insecurity among seniors. During the needs drive customers were encouraged to bring in items like food storage containers, paper products, and cleaning supplies. Those collected items were able to help dozens of clients in the month of March as CASA prepared isolation kits for their most vulnerable clients. This past Friday, CASA received a special delivery from Landers McLarty Subaru. Ann Anderson, CASA’s Executive Director, was excited to receive a check in the amount of $34,889.33 presented by Frank Williams of Landers McLarty Subaru. “Typically we like to present these checks with a little more celebration and community involvement, but in the current climate and in respecting the guidelines of social distancing, we knew it might be a while before that could happen. It wasn’t something that could wait; CASA needed these funds to keep delivering their mission. We all could use some good news right now!” At the culmination of this year Subaru of America and its retailers hope to exceed a grand total of $170 million donated since the creation of the Share the Love event to celebrate the twelfth anniversary of the event. The success of this event is the result of a hard working dealership with great sales people and great staff making sure the customers know about the opportunity to help support worthy causes, like CASA of Madison County.

Subaru aiding final mile of recovery for Graduate - Jennifer G

Brenda's quality of life is dramatically improved due to the purchase of a hearing aid, thanks to the generous donation from Frank Williams. Brenda completed a year-long recovery program at the Downtown Rescue Mission in Huntsville, Alabama but struggled with successful employment after graduation due to a significant hearing impairment. As a recipient of the Frank Williams' Graduate Scholarship, Brenda can hear her colleagues at work and no longer suffers from dizziness. The Frank Williams' Graduate Scholarship Fund is an assistance opportunity for graduates of the 12-month Life Transformation Program of the Downtown Rescue Mission. This scholarship program helps graduates overcome significant financial obstacles that might otherwise prevent them from moving to the next, independent chapter in life. Examples of scholarship funding include, but are not limited to: furniture and/or other household items, utility/security/rent deposits, work attire, dental expenses and tuition assistance.

A Drive to Provide the Basics - Jessica B

What did you get for Christmas? I bet it wasn’t toilet paper and cleaning supplies! Due to limited and fixed incomes, often our aging community faces difficult decisions between medication, food and household items, among other monthly bills. This holiday season many of our aging and homebound neighbors in Madison County, Alabama received gift packages stuffed filled with the most simple basic, needs thanks to our local Landers McLarty Subaru dealership. During the month of December our local Subaru dealership, Landers McLarty Subaru, shared the love with the Care Assurance System for the Aging and Home-bound (CASA) of Madison County to collect household items addressing the needs of an often-forgotten population. CASA of Madison County serves the aging and homebound by helping them remain safe and independent in their homes as they age in place. The donations collected resulted in a mountain of the most basic of household items that will help our neighbors stretch their limited incomes. The donations included dozens and dozens of paper towels and toilet paper, multiple packs of face tissues and disinfectant wipes, and several packs of food storage sets to help with safely storing leftover food. These resources will be delivered to some of the most vulnerable among the CASA clients to prevent infectious diseases and reduce some of their financial stress. CASA of Madison County has been caring for the aging and homebound for 40 years and requires the support of the local community to provide the needed services. Through partnerships with our local businesses, like Landers McLarty Subaru dealership, this agency can have a greater impact on an underserved population. It is great to have Landers McLarty Subaru SHARE THE LOVE with their aging and homebound community to show they care for those who have cared for us.

The Josh Willingham Foundation - Amy Y

As a former MLB player, Josh Willingham and his family have been blessed with the opportunity to travel all over our nation and meet many people of all backgrounds. However, Josh and his foundation is dedicated to giving back to his hometown community and surrounding area known as the Shoals Area of North Alabama. We would like to tell you little about The Josh Willingham Foundation. Our foundation is dedicated to providing support, education, clothing and other assistance to at-risk children in The Shoals Area in North Alabama. in 2014, we announced our flagship program by the name of “Isaiah’s Call; Mission 58”. This mission is based on Isaiah 58 of the Old Testament. The Josh Willingham Foundation and its many volunteers meet weekly to fill unmarked bags with food for the weekend for children in our area who are “food insecure”. This term refers to the many children who do not have enough food to eat while they are not at school. Isaiah’s Call differs from other backpack programs in that we provide full meals for entire families for the weekend. This school year, we are already filling over 200 bags per week. Landers McLarty has very generously donated $1,500 to our foundation to be used for the Isaiah's Call Program. We are so grateful to Landers McLarty for the support and generosity.

Subaru is building a Community! - Jessica B

The Care Assurance System for the Aging and Homebound (CASA) of Madison County started as a grass roots effort in Huntsville, Alabama, 40 years ago. There was a concern for our aging community members who needed help getting out to appointments, grocery shopping, and other needed errands. Over the years CASA has grown to include multiple programs that continue to assist not only our aging neighbors, but also individuals in our area who are home-bound or bed-bound at any age, their mission is to provide volunteer services to help them remain safe and independent in their homes as they age in place. Not long after volunteers began to transport these individuals, they realized many of them could not even get out of their homes without assistance. At that time, the volunteers began working to devise plans and best practices for safe building of wheelchair ramps. Fortunately, Huntsville is a city filled with engineers, rocket scientists, and skilled craftsmen, so over the years there have been many, many improvements to the building process thanks to the advice and instruction given by these professionals. On average, CASA of Madison County installs 100 or more wheelchair ramps in a given year. These are all built and installed by dedicated volunteers. Each ramp build is led by a trained CASA volunteer who provides their own tools and skill-set to get the job done. Behind each wheelchair ramp installation is a community member who was trapped in their home, filled with fear and worry, and depending on others to be able to get out. The story for each build is unique and different, but the wheelchair ramp build on Saturday, November 9th was really special. Our local Subaru dealer, Landers McLarty Subaru, opened its doors to CASA and the community to host a one of a kind opportunity to “Share the Love”. The wheelchair ramp building operation was brought to the general public with a chance to educate them on the importance of safety in the homes of our aging and home-bound neighbors and families. Thanks to the numerous community volunteers, Subaru employees, and the local Subaru Ambassadors, a family in Madison County is now living with more confidence and independence. Ann Anderson, CASA of Madison County’s Executive Director and proud Subaru owner, says “It is great to see the effort of neighbors helping neighbors, especially when a local business can help take care of those in their own backyard. We thank Landers McLarty Subaru for sharing the love with CASA clients.” CASA of Madison County offers individuals ways to put their caring into action through their volunteering opportunities, like the wheelchair ramp builds. Results are life changing and are helping those who have cared for us. Frank Williams, and the whole family at Landers McLarty Subaru, understands the value of our aging community and have not forgotten them even when they are often unseen.

Landars McLarty Subaru works with a number of charitable organizations in our area. The Greater Huntsville Humane Society (GHHS) is grateful to be one of those organizations. Aside from supporting us on all sorts of activities throughout the year, Landars McLarty sets aside the month of October to focus on GHHS and the needs that we have.This year Landers McLarty kicked off our “Compassion for People and Their Pets” campaign with a bang!

They collected pet food, collars and harnesses, pet beds, grooming tools, blankets, toys, cash donations etc. In addition, the collected donations that will be used to purchase further items for the drive.Our King’s Community Kitchen program distributes pet food to low-income and homeless families.

Subaru funds a wish at inaugural Wish Night 2109 - Lacy F

September 20, 2019 was a night to remember in Huntsville, AL as over 250 people gathered together for the inaugural Wish Night in North Alabama for Make-A-Wish Alabama! It was a night of celebrating our Wish Families as well as raising funds to create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. The night was full of magic including a silent auction, live auction, Wish Kid appearances and testimony from Wish Families! Although all of those aspects of the evening were spectacular it was our Fund A Wish that left everyone in awe. Mr. Frank Williams set the tone when he took the stage with Make-A-Wish Alabama President & CEO, Tracy Bennett Smith, and pledged to match up to $8,000 for our Fund A Wish if others would also open their hearts for our mission! The crowd applauded knowing that if we could raise at least $8,000 that two wishes were guaranteed to be granted with the funds raised. Little did we know this was just the beginning as one person after another made donations. Within minutes we had raised over $60,000 just in Fund A Wish! Not to mention, we surpassed our fundraising goal for the entire evening with over $150,000 being raised. That is a LOT of wishes! The impact of Wish Night 2019 will be felt for years to come for families within our community. Thank you Landers McLarty Subaru and Mr. Frank Williams for supporting Make-A-Wish Alabama!

Subaru Star Teacher - Risha S

It was best said by Nobel Laureate, Malala Yousafzai, “One child, one teacher, one book, and one pen can change the world.” At The EarlyWorks Family of Museums, we believe that teachers are agents of change. Teachers are easily considered the foundation of our society. Teachers impart knowledge and values on students with the intention of creating self-sufficient and socially responsible citizens.Thanks to our partnership with Landers McLarty Subaru, we have established an initiative to honor and reward educators around the Tennessee Valley – a program named the Subaru Star Teacher Award. This endeavor celebrates outstanding elementary school educators for the quality of their teaching, their professional leadership, their engagement with families and the community, and their potential for even greater contributions to the healthy development of children. On October 10, 2019, four educators were announced as the recipients of the Subaru Star Teacher Award. Each teacher was awarded $250 from Frank Williams, Operating Manager of Landers McLarty Subaru, along with an opportunity to bring his/her classroom on a field trip to The Early Works Family of Museums, presented by Executive Director, Bart Williams. Landers McLarty Subaru shares EarlyWorks’ enthusiasm to bring attention to these classroom heroes; serving as validation, motivation and inspiration to current and future quality educators. The EarlyWorks Family of Museums is proud to work with Landers McLarty Subaru, an organization that is a living example of the qualities we are trying to impress upon the next generation.

SUBARU makes sure Teens are Prepared for Class - Beth M

Starting a new school year is hard enough on teens, but to arrive without the supplies they need for class adds to an already stressful day. Thanks to Landers McLarty Subaru, that will not be our Boys & Girls Club Teens. Everyone knows that kids need supplies as they start back to school and the children we serve at our local Boys & Girls Clubs look to us to supply these basic tools for them to be prepared for the classroom. Many don't have the resources at home to "fill those backpacks" so we do our best to provide this for our children. Often, the donations that we receive from our community are geared more toward the younger children we serve while our teens are still in need of many basic items. Our mission at the Boys & Girls Clubs is to insure that our children graduate High School with a plan for the future! Landers McLarty Subaru partnered with Boys & Girls Clubs of North Alabama during the month of August with a School Supply Drive to help us reach this mission . On Sept. 26th, Landers McLarty Subaru arrived at our Cavalry Teen Center with boxes of school supplies for our teens including backpacks, binders, calculators and much more. Our teens were gathered together for a "Back to School Bash" and the supplies were a wonderful way to kick off our event. Thanks to the support of Subaru, our teens are prepared to succeed in the classroom which prepares them to succeed in life.

Country Day Kids Love Reading - Jessica H

The students at The Country Day School will be blessed for years to come with the donation of books that are both entertaining and educational for the students to read. These books provide insight into the fascinating world of science while increasing the love of reading. This event shows our students that not only do teachers and educators value reading, but community members do as well. The students were excited to help unpack boxes and listen to Mr. Nathan read a book to them! You could really see the excitement of receiving new books as the children began flipping through the pages and reading. This is an excellent event and one that CDS is very thankful for!

Subaru helps grant wishes to local children! - Lacy F

Huntsville, AL is lucky to have a wonderful Landers McLarty Subaru in our town. They take the words “hometown dealer” to the next level. They are constantly going over and beyond to support local non-profits in our area. Through the support of Landers McLarty Subaru and the Share the Love Campaign Make-A-Wish Alabama has continually been able to grant wishes to critically ill children in our area. This year the donation tripled from the year before which is fantastic. These funds will help us grant wishes for Wish Kids like William from Town Creek who wishes to go to Disney World. Make-A-Wish Alabama currently has more than 250 kids waiting on a wish, with more kids waiting on a wish in the North Alabama region than any other region in the state. With the continued support of the Landers McLarty Subaru team we know that we can drastically lower that number and touch more families. We believe that one wish can transform a life. Research shows that wishes have the possibility to give kids the hope and strength they need to fight harder. Wishes give children and their families the opportunity to believe anything is possible.

Subaru Loves to Care Blanket Delivery - Katherine F

On June 9, 2019, the LLS Alabama Gulf Coast chapter and Landers McLarty Subaru had the pleasure of delivering 80 blankets and messages of hope to the Cancer Center of Huntsville as part of the Subaru Loves to Care Program. Carmelita, the coordinator from Subaru, met me there with Subaru employees and one Subaru Ambassador. Our contact at the hospital, Sonia Ratliff, is the Office Administrator for the cancer center and handles different events and deliveries like the Subaru Blanket Delivery. We had never worked with Cancer Center of Huntsville in the past, and upon arrival were delighted at how welcoming they were. We weren’t sure what to expect since we had never visited this center before but Sonia immediately directed us upstairs where there were a few patients receiving chemotherapy. There were only about 4 patients in the room as it was the afternoon and Sonia said many of them come in the morning to get it over with. We were able to hand out blankets to those in the center which was extremely rewarding. All of them seemed so grateful, especially an older woman who was the only one that allowed us to take her picture! She was extremely thankful and excited telling us, “I needed that blanket I was cold.” She was there alone with no one to accompany her, and it felt like we had made her day coming in there and giving her a little love and company. We are so happy to have support from Landers McLarty Subaru and the Cancer Center of Huntsville! Thank you for partnering with LLS.

Sweating for the Aging - Jessia B

The Jackson's are both in their 80s and have multiple health concerns. Getting out in the HOT Alabama summer to do yard work is just not possible! CASA of Madison County was honored to have members of the Landers McLarty Subaru Ambassadors help our clients with some much needed T.L.C. for their yard. Four wonderful Ambassadors volunteered for one and half hours to get the yard mowed, edged, and even managed to get the bushes trimmed and the debris cleared from the walk ways for their safety. These volunteers did a lot of sweating but they had fun and reportedly felt good after they were done. The Jackson's were grateful and couldn't believe all the work this group was able to accomplish. Thank you to the caring people of Landers McLarty Subaru and the Subaru Ambassadors for caring for our aging and homebound in Madison County. The Care Assurance System for the Aging and Homebound provide volunteer services to individuals 60 years old and older, or individuals who may be homebound or bedbound at any age helping them remain safe and independent as they age in place. Services are provide at no charge thanks to the generous donors who support CASA of Madison County. Thank you to local businesses like Landers McLarty Subaru for their support!

$100,000 raised for community children! - Jessica L

It was more than just your usual Saturday night concert on June 22nd at the Dealers Auto Auction of Huntsville location: on top of well-known country stars, food trucks, and fun, there was a deeper meaning. Landers McLarty Subaru brought the Heart of the Valley YMCA into a partnership with DAA of Huntsville, and their Early Childhood Education program were blessed to be a recipient of the money raised at the benefit concert that Saturday. At the charity auction the following Tuesday, YMCA parent Gela Pride spoke to a crowd about what the YMCA and Landers McLarty Subaru’s support had done for her family.While working on her Master’s degree, Gela was diagnosed with cancer. She was regularly driving to the University of Alabama-Birmingham for medical treatments, and also suffering from related ailments that kept her from work and from her normal life. She was worried that the person most affected was her daughter, Camilla. She needed reliable care for her daughter while she received treatment, but her daughter was also in need of developmental help. The past year had put both mother and daughter into survival mode, and, at age 4, Camilla still needed a diaper and was falling behind in Kindergarten Readiness. Gela found the YMCA Early Childhood Education Program, and she found the help she needed. Not only did she have safe, reliable care every weekday for her daughter, but she also saw immediate improvement in Camilla’s developmental and social skills. Beaming with pride, Gela brought Camilla to attend the charity auction and share their story. With the support of Landers McLarty Subaru as a partner, the benefit concert and charity auction raised $109,000 in support of the Heart of the Valley YMCA’s Early Childhood Education Program, as well as their partner charity, Best Buddies of Madison County. This will allow us to help families like Gela and Camilla with fee assistance, and ensure those in need of safe, quality childcare won’t be turned away based on their inability to pay.

A dry place to sleep - Shannon S

The Greater Huntsville Humane Society has been overwhelmed with puppies this spring and summer. Our puppies play out on our puppy patio during the day. But, at bedtime, the puppies go into large kennels together for the night. We like to keep our puppies dry in their kennels and newspaper does a fantastic job of absorbing moisture and keeping it away from the puppies. However, that means that we are constantly in need of newspaper for our puppy kennels.Thanks to Landers McLarty Subaru, we remain stocked with newspaper for our puppy kennels. They keep a large bin in their showroom to collect newspapers for GHHS. They encourage their employees and clients to bring their newspapers to the dealership and place them in the bin. Each time the bin is filled, someone from Landers McLarty drops the newspapers off at GHHS and the bin goes back out to be refilled. Their continued support is invaluable to use knowing that we will always have a newspaper supply to keep our puppies dry at night.

Lighting the Path to Independence - Tonia B

Downtown Rescue Mission is so excited about the partnership with Frank Williams and Landers McLarty Subaru. Recently, we teamed up with the Landers McLarty staff, to gather a handful of local employment experts for a Career Day at the Mission. They shared the state of employment in Huntsville and the resources available to get good jobs. Our residents were engaged and asked lots of questions. Frank spoke about focusing on the future instead of the past and was wonderfully encouraging. We are thrilled to partner with someone who is so deeply concerned with helping our community thrive. The Career Day was a product of the Subaru Graduate Fund which provides funding for those who have completed a life rehabilitation program and are still facing obstacles in their path to complete independence. Obstacles that could include: transportation, funding for childcare, health concerns, etc. The Graduate fund steps in and provides funding for that last step needed to independence. Providing support and education through the Career Day gave the graduates clear and precise steps to take to find fulfilling careers upon leaving the mission.

Subaru Reads for the Future - Wendy R

Village of Promise (VoP) is a Family Advancement Center. We guide and support children and their families as they advance out of poverty, utilizing a two-generational approach. Every family that comes to VoP develops an Individualized Family Advancement Plan focusing on the educational, social-emotional, physical, and professional development goals of each family member.Through our continuum of services we provide the sustainable tools, resources, and opportunities for families to advance and then give back to their community. We appreciate Landers McLarty Subaru for impacting educational success with our community’s under resourced youth and their families by investing in our summer reading program by donating to our upcoming One Table Thanksgiving event. Research shows children from low-income homes hear as many as 30 million fewer words than their more affluent peers. By age five, a typical middle-class child recognizes 22 letters of the alphabet compared to nine letters for a child from a low-income family. In addition, 61 percent of children from low-income backgrounds have no children’s books at home.Reading creates a foundation for learning across all academic areas, including math, science, and social studies. That’s why VoP works with the Children’s Defense Fund (CDF) Freedom Schools program, a 6-week summer program for 100 Pre-K through 8th grade scholars. In 2018, our scholars improved their reading skills with an average growth gain of eight months within six-weeks.Our goal is to promote an environment that supports young scholars so they develop a love for reading and believe in their ability to make a difference. Parents are included through participation in monthly workshops through the summer program. More than 800 families have been touched by VoP’s continuum of services since its inception in 2011.

Subaru solving the Puzzle of Child Care needs! - Jessica L

The Heart of the Valley YMCA serves over 300 infants, toddlers and Pre-K students each year through our Early Childhood Education programming, providing over $300,000 in fee assistance to our community. Over 75% of our families are living below the poverty line, and 67% of those families are headed by a single mother. We know that for these parents, childcare is not a choice, but their only chance to break the cycle of poverty. However, we also believe that their children deserve the same opportunities to grow, learn, and thrive in a safe, caring environment as do children whose families can afford the best care. We work hard to make our Early Childhood Education Centers secure places, with quality curriculum and the same level of resources as full-pay centers. That is why it is amazing to have a partner like Landers McLarty Subaru. Their recent donation drive allowed the YMCA’s Early Childhood Education Centers to set out bins for supplies and support items for our kids in their dealership. The response from Subaru customers was unbelievable and a true blessing to our babies. From Kleenex and baby wipes, to coloring books and crayons, the donations overflowed our bin. We hope Landers McLarty Subaru and the Subaru owners who donated know what an impact it had on our centers. Every time one of our toddlers plays with a dump truck or puts together a puzzle that was donated through this drive, we will think of Subaru and their giving hearts.

Subaru Loved the Earth in a BIG way! - Melanie M

In celebration of Earth Month and Subaru Loves the Earth, Landers McLarty Subaru partnered with the Land Trust of North Alabama to get people out on the trails to enjoy nature! Landers McLarty Subaru contributed funds to purchase picnic tables for an outdoor pavilion at our newest nature preserve and provided volunteers to assemble the tables. Visitors to the preserve now have a comfortable spot to take a break or enjoy a picnic. Landers McLarty Subaru promotions throughout the month encouraged residents to learn more about Land Trust trails and start exploring and a display inside the dealership provided maps, information about where to go, and some hiking tips to help plan your adventure. As another fun way of engaging the community, a Frank Williams bobble head was hidden on Land Trust nature preserves and a prize was promised to the person who could “Find Frank” and return him to the dealership. We shared hints through social media about where Frank was located and each time he was returned within 24 hours! This was a creative way to get people outside who might just need a little encouragement or direction. One participant said, “I really enjoyed Find Frank! I’m a hot-natured person and prefer hiking in late fall, winter, early spring. I don’t hike much in the summer but Frank motivated me and my husband to get out anyway and we had a blast finding him! Plus we got to check out some trails we had never been on before.”

More than just a car Company! - Heather M

Landers McLarty Subaru is more than just a car company, they are family! HEALS was selected to be the beneficiary of the Subaru Share the Love campaign this year. The contribution of $26,360 we received will provide medical care to 175 children living in poverty in our community over the next year. Without support from Subaru, these kids would not receive the much needed medical care to keep them healthy and in school. It is because of organizations like Landers McLarty Subaru that we are able to help a child 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. We wouldn’t be able to help “Sam” who is homeless and lives at the Downtown Rescue Mission see the NOVA counselor for his mental health issues without their support. We were having trouble getting his mother to complete the necessary paperwork for NOVA to see the child. She too has mental health issues and no transportation. Our staff used our transportation van and brought her to school to complete the paperwork so that Sam can get the treatment he needs. We are very thankful for the support so that we can continue to provide the care that Katie and Sam need and the other thousands of kids just like them.

K9 Unit "Puppy Basket" Donations - Josh S

What an incredible month it has been for the Huntsville K9 Unit! Landers Mclarty Subaru pointed a bright spotlight on us and invited the entire Huntsville community to take notice of us. As part of their annual partnership program, we received our Focus Month during the month of March and Landers Mclarty Subaru initiated a “Puppy Basket” Program. This program was designed to get the community to take notice of our department and what we do, all while inviting customers and the community to build baskets for each dog and filling them with much-needed items such as training aids, brushes, treats, and food. All of our officers are responsible for the care of their dog and these baskets provided much-needed relief for each officer and an exciting present for each dog! Included in each donated basket was the life-saving narcotic antidote “Narcan” provided by Landers Mclarty Subaru. This antidote protects our drug detection dogs from overdosing when they come in contact with uncontained substances. These baskets were filled with joy and life-saving aids, we are forever grateful to Landers Mclarty Subaru and our community for taking notice of those who serve each day to keep everyone safe! A total of 23 Baskets were collected for our 9 dogs so each dog received multiple baskets. These are the types of efforts that make retailers a part of their community and not just a car dealership; this is what makes them FAMILY.

Subaru warmth - Heather M

It’s currently 29 degrees in Huntsville, Alabama. Imagine your child’s shoes look like the ones pictured below and you have no means of buying them a new pair. You are currently struggling to provide food for your child and shoes aren’t a priority. This is the reality for many of the patients we treat at HEALS. This was the reason one of our nurses started the Heels for HEALS program several years ago. This program provides our children with a brand new pair of tennis shoes when they come for their annual visit. It is a great way to get the parents to bring the children for these important visits, and also helps them by providing the child with a new pair of tennis shoes. Last year, we provided 2,000 children with those much-needed shoes. It is because of the generous support of our community partner, Landers McLarty Subaru that we are able to provide so many children with new shoes. Landers McLarty chose HEALS as their hometown charity for the month of November and December and did a shoe drive for us at the Subaru dealership. Carmelita Iglesias, Marketing Director, also coordinated efforts with Parkway Place Mall, Santa’s Village, Atlanta Bread Company on our behalf. Because of their tremendous efforts, we collected:• 220 pairs of tennis shoes• 87 pairs of socks• Various hygiene items. This will allow us to provide 220 children living in poverty with a new pair of tennis shoes this year. This will not only give the parents a sense of relief, but also these 220 children will not have to wear worn out or too small shoes to school. Thank you Landers McLarty Subaru for all that you do for the children in our community!

Freedom for the Holidays - Jessica B

CASA of Madison County has concluded another successful December Ramp Blitz. During this annual event, volunteers commit to building as many wheelchair ramps as possible in the month of December, giving the gift of freedom and independence during the holidays. This December our volunteer teams battled terrible weather conditions to provide 24 ramps to our aging and homebound neighbors in Madison County. Volunteers spent a total of 1,039 hours working in the CASA warehouse preparing for the builds as well as onsite designing and building the wheelchair ramps. In addition to our committed volunteers, having local support, like our community partnership with Landers McLarty Subaru, makes it possible for us to provide these home safety features helping our clients age in place safely. Thank you to Landers McLarty Subaru for sharing the love and supporting our mission to care for seniors and homebound in our community!

Downtown Rescue Mission has been helping people in the Tennessee Valley get back on their feet since 1975. Many times, graduates of the recovery program are doing well but have difficulties overcoming the last hurdle to independence. Frank Williams Landers McLarty Subaru saw the challenges and stepped in to help. The FW Subaru Graduate Scholarship Fund will help graduates take the next step to independence. People like Chris. “In October of 2012, I was released from jail and I had a life-altering decision to make. Go back to the way I was living or seek some kind of recovery program. A couple days later I found myself checking into Downtown Rescue Mission for their year-long faith-based program” said Chris. He recounts, “The look of joy on my mother’s face when I asked for that bible and the thought of visiting with my children through the glass at the jail and not being able to hold my little boys flashed thru my mind. No way was I quitting and going back now”. Chris has been moving forward ever since! With the gracious gift from Subaru of Huntsville Chris is furthering his education so he can share his story, as a beacon of hope, and effectively counsel others at Downtown Rescue Mission who are in the same dark and lonely place he was once in. “This will change my life dramatically being able to continue my education in the field of counseling. Words can’t even express how much this means to me. Not just for myself, but so that I can more effectively help others.”

Subaru helps grant a wish! - Christina Z

Make-A-Wish Alabama is a non-profit organization that grants wishes to children with a critical illness. Make-A-Wish currently has more than 250 kids waiting on a wish in Alabama and one of those wish kids lives in the same neighborhood as Landers McLarty Subaru. Nine-year-old wish kid Khushi was diagnosed with neuroblastoma and after her two-year battle, Make-A-Wish Alabama came into her life and asked if she had one true wish what would she wish for? Khushi wished to be a princess for the day! Landers McLarty Subaru was one of the companies that helped make this wish happen. When Make-A-Wish Alabama asked Marketing Director, Carmelita Iglesias, if they would like to participate, they jumped at the chance! Khushi would be picked up from school on December 4th and would make multiple stops along her royal quest to gather various items for becoming a princess. We knew we wanted Landers McLarty to be one of her stops. Princess Khushi and her family drove up in their limo to the dealership. Khushi was welcomed with posters, and cheers from the staff standing outside waiting for her. One of their employees even dressed as a knight to read a royal scroll that proclaimed Khushi would be given a key to her royal castle! All the employees treated Khushi like a true princess. Make-A-Wish Alabama is so grateful Landers McLarty played a role in a little girl’s wish to be a princess for the day. What Khushi will cherish most is not her ball gown, or her key to the castle, or her crown, but her community taking the time to cheer for her and let her know she is not alone in the fight for her life.

Subaru putting a stop to child abuse - Cynthia P

When children and families come to the National Children’s Advocacy Center, the beginning of their journey is often scary, overwhelming, confusing, and more. Children come to the NCAC when there are allegations of sexual or physical abuse, a report of exposure to extreme violence or trauma, or neglect – circumstances unimaginable to most. While the children and their families focus on healing, one of their closest allies are the donors. Donors are truly investing in the lives of our community’s most vulnerable children. Frank Williams Subaru’s contribution to support the full services in Fall 2018 made all the difference to two children. Mother to one of the NCAC’s teen clients, Sherry recently said, “my daughter is alive today, literally, because of the NCAC, and getting the help she needs.” Without the support of FW Subaru and the NCAC, this 16-year-old might still be a runaway, struggling to survive. Another mother of two children abused by a neighbor stated, “My children are great today. The man who did this to my babies is in jail. He pleads guilty. Finally, he pleads guilty and my children are putting this behind them with the help of the NCAC and so many others.”Without the support of Frank Williams’ Subaru, these success stories wouldn’t be possible. Frank Williams Subaru and the NCAC are putting a stop to child child at a time.

A Place for the Pups to Play! - Shannon S

Landers McLarty Subaru is always involved in their community. Not only are they concerned about the people of their community; they are also concerned about the pets in their community. So, one of their latest undertakings is the building of a dog park for the dogs in this area. However, they didn’t stop there. Instead of just planning on their own dog park, Landers McLarty Subaru also included the Greater Huntsville Humane Society in their plans. The Humane Society has been very focused on keeping the animals in the shelter engaged and occupied as the behavior of animals in a shelter setting can change drastically if they are not stimulated. So, Landers McLarty started a “Build a Park, Give a Park” campaign to help the Greater Huntsville Humane Society build a dog park for the dogs in the shelter. In addition to committing a sum of money for the park, displays representing a dog park were set up in the showroom and Landers McLarty has focused on helping GHHS to raise the additional funds necessary to build the park. In fact, Landers McLarty volunteers will be on hand to help when the time comes for the actual construction, Landers McLarty is also lending a hand in securing agility equipment for the park as they purchase equipment for their park. This will help GHHS a great deal as the equipment for a safe and secure park for the dogs, is very expensive. The new park will help dogs like Claire who is a 7-year-old American Pit Bull who has been in the shelter for 6 months. Claire, although a senior for the size of dog that she is, enjoys the opportunity to be active. A dog park would be the perfect setting for a dog like Claire who seeks opportunities to venture out and satisfy their curiosities in order to break away from the monotony of shelter life. She enjoys a challenge as most dogs do and the dog park would offer the equipment needed to challenge dogs like Claire, as well as others and keep them happy during their time in the shelter. We are so grateful to Landers McLarty Subaru for helping us follow this dream for our dogs and see it through to a reality. As they have done in the past, they will be along with us for the entire ride and will help us reach the end goal. Our appreciation and gratitude are beyond words. We are so thankful for this wonderful group of people who so genuinely want to help the animals in our shelter.

Enabling Smiles with the help of Subaru - Heather M

Please meet Tim Tipton, a vibrant 13-year-old boy in the 8th grade. Tim was recently placed in the custody of his grandmother. We met him in October when he came to see one of our dentist, Dr. Jayashree Srinivasan (Dr. Jay). This was Tim’s first ever visit to see the dentist. As you can expect, he was a little nervous, but the compassionate staff reassured him and he did great. However, during his cleaning, the staff discovered that he had severe enamel loss and 15 cavities. Tim had one tooth that had 5 cavities and several others with 2-3 cavities per tooth. Due to his extensive tooth decay, he will require multiple visits to our HEALS’ clinic. We have already repaired the tooth with the 5 cavities and have him scheduled over the next few months to complete his treatment. In addition, Dr. Jay has referred him to an orthodontist for braces. As you can imagine, the cost to provide Tim with a smile he can be proud of is very expensive and one that his family cannot afford. He even requested a toothbrush and toothpaste because he did not have any at home. His total care, including his braces, could cost more than $3,000. Tim and many other kids like him are why our partnership with Landers McLarty Subaru is so important. We could not provide care to him and the other underprivileged children in our community without their support. Landers McLarty Subaru chose HEALS as the hometown charity for the 2018 Share the Love Campaign that started November 15th. In conjunction with the Share the Love Campaign, Subaru is sponsoring a shoe drive this holiday season for our Heels for HEALS program. When children come for their annual check-up, we trade in their old worn out pair of shoes for a brand new pair of shoes. This is also an incentive for the parents or guardians to bring the children for this much needed visit. Last year we provided over 2,000 pairs of shoes to our children. Our need for new tennis shoes is enormous. The awareness and financial support that Landers McLarty Subaru provides for HEALS make it possible for us to provide quality care for needy children in our community. Our relationship with Subaru extends beyond the Share the Love campaign. It is truly a partnership. This is evident by the commitment of their Marketing Director, Carmelita Iglesias. Carmelita committed to being a 2018 STAR for our annual fundraiser, STARS Dancing for HEALS. This is a huge commitment to not only raise money but to also learn a dance and perform in front of hundreds of people. Carmelita raised $43,165 for the children in our community. This will provide medical and dental care of 123 children over the next year. We are very thankful for Landers McLarty Subaru and everything they do for HEALS and our community.

Prior to USPCA National PD1 Trials we hosted 9/27-9/21, Landers Mclarty Subaru donated $1,000 for food and lodging as well as several raffle items to help raise funds during the trials. Thanks to their generosity, the money donated went towards food and hotel expenses we had for hosting the trials. The Raffle items and the donation helped us offset the cost of the event and allowed us to have a successful K9 Field Trial! This event allowed police dogs from around the country to show up their skills and win awards. Having the opportunity to interact with other police departments helps everyone learn new skills, practice, and over all improve our dog and handler relationship. Thank you so much to Landers Mclarty Subaru for always partnering with us!

Subaru Launch Celebration Gives Back - shannon s

Landers McLarty Subaru recently celebrated the launch of the new Subaru Ascent and Subaru Forester. The Greater Huntsville Humane Society was invited to take part in the event. We were able to provide information to participants about the shelter and our services and introduce them to some of our adoptable dogs. Landers McLarty Subaru is always looking for ways to support and promote the Greater Huntsville Humane Society. Giving us occasions to be in front of different audiences helps us spread the word about our mission and provides us with opportunities for our adoptable dogs to be in front of different groups. These are invaluable to our organization. Landers McLarty Subaru continuously champions the causes of the Greater Humane Society. It is with the help of organizations like Landers McLarty that we are able to provide services in our community and offer so many second chances to animals year after year. We are grateful for all that Landers McLarty Subaru does throughout the year for our organization and for the second chances that they help provide.

Build a Park, Give a Park - Shannon S

Landers McLarty Subaru is a civic-minded organizations. One of their latest ventures is building a dog park on site for the four-legged members of their community. True to their usual giving spirit, Landers McLarty Subaru has included the Greater Huntsville Humane Society in their dog park plans with their “Build a Park, Give a Park” campaign.During the month of October, Landers McLarty Subaru is helping the Greater Huntsville Humane Society raise funds for a dog park for the dogs in the shelter. They have provided space in their showroom for a mock dog park to promote the campaign and are using their social media platforms to spread the word. The dealership has also committed $2,500 to the Greater Huntsville Humane Society for the dog park in addition to helping us raise funds. The Greater Huntsville Humane Society seeks to provide excellent care for the animals in the shelter. Giving the animals as much enrichment and socialization as possible helps them be better prepared to be in a home. Having a dog park on the shelter grounds for the animals to enjoy will be an invaluable asset to our program. We are grateful to Landers McLarty for leading this campaign and their consistent, sincere interest in the animals here at the Greater Huntsville Humane Society.

Imagine your child arriving to class without the paper, pencils and pens they need for class. Thanks to Landers McLarty Subaru, that will not be our Club kids!!! Subaru partnered with Boys & Girls Clubs of North Alabama during the month of September with a School Supply Drive. The campaign allowed for all new Subaru owners to come into the dealership and "stuff" a bag full of school supplies for our Club kids. The display we set up at Subaru helped us to share our message and mission with the community. On Sept. 28th, Landers McLarty Subaru arrived at our Seminole Boys & Girls Club and not only delivered a CAR LOAD of school supplies and backpacks but they spent the afternoon with our kids. Frank Williams and his Subaru crew focused on our education programs but they also found time to build block towers with our little ones and play Foosball with our big kids. There were lots of smiles, songs and hugs for the afternoon. These school supplies provided our children with a chance to start their school year off right. Thanks to the support of Subaru, our kids have the tools they need to help them succeed.

Landers McLarty Delivers Hope to CCI - Kate S

Caring for the community and environment are at the core of the Subaru community. This was on full display on July 16th when ambassadors from Landers McLarty Subaru pulled up to the entryway of Clearview Cancer Institute (CCI) in Huntsville, Alabama. They were there to deliver hope. For the last three years, Landers McLarty has partnered with the Alabama/Gulf Coast Chapter of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) and Clearview Cancer Institute to show support for patients going through cancer treatment. Along with boxes full of beautiful blankets were hundreds of hand-written letters of encouragement and hope – all from customers and employees at Landers McLarty Subaru.These blankets and notes of encouragement will be delivered to patients at CCI who are going through cancer treatment, at a time when they need it the most. New in 2017, Landers McLarty and LLS realized that their goal was not just to provide warmth and comfort for the cancer patients at CCI, but also for their family. For every patient that goes through treatment at CCI, there are countless friends and family that rally behind them. In addition to the blankets and hand-written notes, children’s art kits were added to this very special delivery. They hoped to bring a bit of distraction and happiness to the children who will spend countless hours at the hospital with a family member of friend who is going through treatment. We’ve discovered they are a pretty big hit with the adults, too! Clearview Cancer Institute and LLS send a big “Thank you!” to Landers McLarty Subaru for continuing to give hope to Huntsville cancer patients

Life Changing trips for Kids with Subaru - Jessica L

For the second year in a row, the Heart of the Valley YMCA will take ten teens to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience - one that also could change the course of their lives. Christian Values Conference takes place in Black Mountain, North Carolina at the YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly. It is a place where over 500 teens from across our nation come together to learn about fellowship, faith, and leadership - learning to value meaningful friendships with other teens from different places and from all walks of life. Each day includes morning and evening devotionals, small group activities and near-constant games and exercises that show them how to expand their minds while also expanding their network of relationships. This year's theme is "You Are Not Alone," an important reminder in today's world. The Heart of the Valley YMCA exclusively offers Christian Values Conference to teens whose families could otherwise never afford an experience like this for their children; half of our teens are returning participants, with a mix of 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders attending this year. The Heart of the Valley YMCA pays the total cost for this trip, which makes finding support an integral part of providing this for these teens and their families. This year, Landers McLarty Subaru subsidized the ENTIRE cost of travel for our teens, providing two vans to take them and their chaperones to North Carolina. Without their help, the Y would not have been able to provide safe, comfortable accommodations for our teens - who deserve to truly immerse themselves in this experience with no worries for them or their families as to how they will get from Huntsville, Alabama to Black Mountain, North Carolina. We are so appreciative of the constant and consistent support of Landers McLarty Subaru - they never miss an opportunity to make the lives of the children we serve better. Who knows how life-changing this trip could be a for a teen who has never left their neighborhood and seen what the world has to offer? Thank you for providing that opportunity.

A dream to Swing realized by Subaru! - Laurie S

Ability Plus is a non-profit organization that maintains residential homes and day habilitation for individuals in North Alabama with intellectual and developmental disabilities. With 4.6 million Americans diagnosed with ID (intellectual disabilities) and the enormous expense required for proper care, the cost is on the rise. Many adults with ID/DD must live on Supplemental Security Income (SSI) which provides an average monthly payment of $600 for people ages 19-64. With such low monthly payments, people with disabilities struggle to enjoy the very basic activities that we take for granted. In June 2018, Landers McLarty Subaru embarked on a mission with Ability Plus to help fund two new wheel chair swings for our disabled clients. Most of us take an activity like swinging for granted. But for our special clients, the joy and exhilaration that they will be able to experience will forever put a smile on their faces as well as all of the people who know and care for them. Landers McLarty Subaru is always on the front line to help Ability Plus reach these goals to make the lives of those who cannot fully help themselves a priority. We are very grateful for their generosity and willingness to help change lives! Landers McLarty is helping us raise $11k to purchase and install these swings. We are honored to be a community partner and look forward to changing the lives and experiences for our clients so that they can have a beautiful life. Thank you Landers McLarty Subaru for helping a Dream to Swing come true!

Subaru helps Open the Door to Freedom - Jessica B

Often the simplest things in life are taken for granted. Take for instance the commonly used saying, “stop and smell the roses.” What if you were unable to get out of your home to do just that? CASA client, 57 year old, Ms. H, is wheelchair bound and has relied on her family members to help her in and out of her home for many years. Recently a group of CASA volunteers installed a wheelchair ramp which freed her and allowed her to enter and exit her home by herself. Upon finishing the ramp build, she immediately made her way to her roses and began smelling the newest blooms. She was overwhelmed with appreciation as she wept and thanked our volunteers. One of those volunteers commented that as he watched her smelling those roses for the first time in a very long time, he could only imagine how sweet they must smell. The materials used on every wheelchair ramp is made possible by monetary donations, just like that of Landers McLarty Subaru. The wheelchair ramp donation from Frank Williams Dealership Landers McLarty Subaru will help our neighbors be able to enjoy those simple things in life and open a new door to mobility, freedom, and safety. From our clients, their families, our volunteers, and staff, thank you for caring about our aging and homebound community.

Planting Trees - Melanie M

In celebration of Earth Month, Landers McLarty Subaru partnered with the Land Trust of North Alabama on a campaign called “Buy a Car, Plant a Tree.” For each car sold throughout the month of April, Landers McLarty Subaru contributed to fund tree plantings at Land Trust nature preserves. Our efforts were specifically focused on a property that we plan to open to the public later this year. The preserve included a former home site that was once cleared of trees. The money donated will provide native trees to fill this space, restoring the natural forest. This was a project that we hoped to complete before the preserve opened but was on hold until funding was available. Now we are excited to be able to open the preserve with this exciting project completed! As a kickoff to the campaign, we partnered with a local outdoor retailer to create a display inside the dealership showroom. The display included information about the new nature preserve and details about how to support our organization by becoming a member. We shared the display on social media through a Facebook live and photos. The “Buy a Car, Plant a Tree” campaign helped raise awareness about our organization and educated the public about our mission of environmental conservation. It was also an excellent opportunity to introduce our new nature preserve and get the community excited about its opening later this year. Lastly, this campaign resulted in a donation of 20 Full Size (6ft or more) trees as well as 200 tree seedlings for our new preserve! This fall, we plan to plant the trees purchased as a result of the campaign in coordination with the preserve’s grand opening. This will give Land Trust volunteers and supporters an opportunity to plant a tree themselves and experience a tangible connection with the property that they’ve helped us protect forever.

Landers McLarty Support to Asbury Car Show - Lee W

Landers McLarty Subaru contributed Subaru mugs that were given away as door prizes during the 5th annual Asbury Community Car Show that was held on April 21, 2018 in Madison, AL. This event attracted sports cars, exotics, muscle cars, hot rods, classics and antiques, along with trucks and motorcycles. Local car clubs participated, including Vets with Vettes, Mustang Clubs, NACCC and EuroBrit. The show was open to all vehicles and promoted on Facebook,, and car clubs’ message posts. Initially, the event extended the men’s ministry by attracting the "car community" for a day of fellowship. The event was so successful that a free lunch and children’s activities were added and it was made an annual community event. “You can get to know your neighbors and see some really cool cars — from old VWs to million-dollar Porsches, national car show winners, and antiques to modern high tech". This year we had over 140 cars and served over 800 free lunches. All participants and spectators were eligible for door prizes, such as free oil changes, detail kits, tools, hats, shirts, mugs, and car-care buckets, that local merchants had donated. Attendees voted to select trophy winners in 11 classes: first-, second- and third-place trophies for 1940 and older, 1941-1960, 1961-1990, 1991 and newer; first and second place for Kid’s Choice, truck and motorcycle; along with longest travel, club entry and overall favorite. The Madison Fire and Police Departments presented a fire truck and service vehicles for children to explore, and the Kid’s Zone in a separate area offered inflatable slides. The annual car show serves as a community outreach program to all who attend and the entry fees from participants provide monetary support to: - the Asbury Free Oil Change Ministry that provides oil changes, routine maintenance, and basic auto repairs for single women who are elderly, low income, or spouses of deployed service personnel, and - the Asbury ministry providing missions work with refugees in Nashville.

Regaining Independence with the Help of Subaru - Jessica B

Going Home - Ann A. When a serious car accident sent Lora to the hospital and rehab for months on end, she thought the trip home would be a welcomed trip. Instead, she began to wonder how she was going to care for herself and began to fear being in her own home. Then one day a friend recommended she call CASA of Madison County. The Care Assurance System for the Aging and Homebound was able to come to her home and find out what she needed and provide her with information she never knew existed in our community. The visit left her feeling empowered and more confident, but nothing compared to when she received the durable medical equipment that allowed her to regain her independence in the bathroom and getting around her home. This experience is not one of a kind, many of CASA’s clients experience that same feeling of fear and uncertainty when their situation changes and they no longer feel safe in their own home due to illness, injury, or just aging. As a sponsor of our Night for CASA fundraiser, Landers McLarty Subaru will help make it possible for CASA further its mission to help our aging and homebound neighbors remain safe and independent in their homes as they age in place. The funds raised that night will provide enough to potentially build 17 more wheelchair ramps, provide transportation to medical appointments for 27 CASA clients, provide 15 clients with durable medical equipment, along with additional services throughout the year. CASA of Madison County appreciates Landers McLarty Subaru’s commitment to this often-forgotten population.

Never Ending Needs, Never Ending Support - Shannon S

As a nonprofit organization, the Greater Huntsville Humane Society has consistent needs. We always need newspapers to help keep our puppy kennels clean and dry. We are always in need of pet food to stock our pet food pantry for low-income families. Of course, our biggest need is always money. We are so grateful to organizations like Landers McLarty Subaru for their constant support in helping us continually fill these needs.Recently, we put out a call for newspapers as our puppy kennels were full. But, our newspaper supply was gone. Landers McLarty Subaru collected papers and delivered them to us. However, they did not only deliver the papers. They had also purchased pet food for our King’s Community Kitchen Pet Food Pantry, and collected money in their “dog bank.” Typical of Landers McLarty Subaru, they not only met our needs but also, went the extra mile. We are indebted to this group of fine people. The Greater Huntsville Humane Society is so appreciative of all that Landers McLarty Subaru does to help our organization.

Providing Healthcare for Local Children! - Jennifer L

HEALS, Inc was fortunate enough to be chosen as the hometown charity for Lander’s McLarty Subaru’s ‘Share the Love’ campaign. Because of the generosity of Landers McLarty Subaru along with the new Subaru vehicle owners of Huntsville, AL, we were recently awarded $28,884! This generous donation will go such a long way to help the patients of HEALS receive the healthcare and services they need to be well and feel confident in school. With such a wonderful donation, 50 children will receive the dental care they need for the next year. HEALS can also provide 50 children with the medical care they need for the next year. As part of the Heels for HEALS campaign, HEALS can purchase brand new shoes for over 200 patients to receive on their annual well-child checkup, in addition to the almost 100 pairs of shoes & 170 pairs of socks that we received from the Share the Love shoe drive that Lander’s McLarty hosted for us. With this donation, HEALS can not only supply each dental patient a new toothbrush and toothpaste to take home with them, but also provide supplies for dental screenings at each of the five schools where our clinics reside! In addition, we will be able to staff the medical clinics with medicine to treat our patients, such as Band-aids, allergy & pain medicines, lice treatment kits, cold medicine, etc. HEALS is so thankful for the community partnership that we have with Landers McLarty Subaru, for the awareness that they bring to our organization, and for their huge heart for HEALS!

On March 27, 2018, Landers McLarty Subaru organized an auction with Dealer Auto Auction of Huntsville in support of the Heart of the Valley YMCA Early Childhood Education (ECE) Scholarship Program. Together, they raised over $22,000 for children and families. Landers McLarty Subaru not only initiated the idea for this auction, but they provided a vehicle that toured the YMCA's three Early Childhood Education Centers to be painted by all the children; this was then the centerpiece item auctioned at the event.In 2017, the YMCA's ECE Centers provided over 330 children ages six weeks to five years with almost $250,000 in childcare scholarships for families living below the poverty line. These scholarships help parents to afford safe, quality care at a state-licensed center while they work or attend school. At this event, YMCA ECE Center parent Jessica Scott spoke about how the ECE Centers prepared her daughter to attend a prestigious private school for elementary education, while allowing Jessica to earn a bachelor's degree. She now has a son enrolled in the program, and recently was able to receive her Master's Degree while working full-time."The YMCA ECE Program helped me get ahead, so that now if I were to have a third child, I could afford to pay for their childcare and, in turn, free up a scholarship for another needy family," Jessica offered.This event and the $22,000 raised will have a huge impact on the YMCA's ability to offer scholarships that provide families and children; it would not have been possible without the dedication and commitment of Landers McLarty Subaru to the YMCA's mission of leaving no child or family behind based on an inability to afford their services.

Going from Homeless to walking the Runway! - Shannon S

The Greater Huntsville Humane Society relies on donations and fundraisers to care for the animals in our shelter. Our largest fundraiser each year takes place in February and is called the Dog Ball. The evening includes dinner, a silent auction and a live auction. But, the highlights of the evening are the VIDs (Very Important Dogs.) Each of the 50+ dogs walks the runway and through the crowd of dog lovers.This event not only raises much needed funds but it also serves as a platform to show success stories from our adoptions to the community in hopes that all shelter animals get adopted each month!The Dog Ball is a wonderful and necessary evening that would not be possible without help from corporate sponsors like Landers McLarty Subaru. With their support, we are able to generate the funding necessary for basic, daily care needs for the animals, medical care, emergency care, vaccines, long term treatments, community education programs, monies to help families who need emergency medical care for their pets, etc. etc. etc. The list goes on. We are thankful for partners like Landers McLarty Subaru who so generously support the Greater Huntsville Humane Society’s efforts to care for homeless pets.

Uncommon Adventures: Why Kids Need Camp - Jessica L

Landers McLarty Subaru has committed themselves to making sure that every child has the ability to experience once-in-a-lifetime adventures, no matter their family background or income. The Heart of the Valley YMCA provides an unforgettable experience to children in North Alabama with their Camp Cha-La-Kee Resident and Day Camp. Hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, a ropes course, archery, or bouncing off of the giant inflatable (nicknamed The Blob) floating on scenic Lake Guntersville are just a few of the activities that campers can experience. But not every child can afford a summer at Camp; the Y knows this, and Landers McLarty Subaru and General Manager Frank Williams wanted to be a part of bridging the divide. In February, they offered their “Send a Kid to Camp” promotion for every car sold, and because of their commitment, children who otherwise never would have this opportunity will form friendships, memories and life-changing ideas about what they are capable of.But don’t take it from us. Listen to Matthew, whose family could never have afforded this summer experience for him and for his siblings without partners like Subaru.“Thank you for the opportunity to go to camp. I loved it and I intend to be a Counselor-in-Training next year, and then a Counselor. It just confirmed me wanting to be a teacher and working with children. Thank you again from Matthew (or Big Foot, my Camp name)”

Heels for HEALS - Keeping kids feet warm and dry - Jennifer L

One of the great responsibilities for those working at HEALS, Inc.’s administrative office is the task of filling shoe orders for the clinics. Each child who visits a HEALS clinic for his or her annual physical receives a brand new pair of athletic shoes. While this may not seem like a significant thing to most people, the families of the children we serve are rarely able to afford brand new shoes each time a child grows into a new size. It is a privilege to head to the “Shoe Room” at administration, working to find just the right pair for each child who is scheduled to see a HEALS physician. We often take a moment to think about that specific child in order to select the perfect pair for them.Our “Shoe Room” is stocked through donations from the community. Here is one example of this: As one of our clinic nurses was walking into work, she noticed some pale bare feet with black straps wrapped around them. The temperature was thirty degrees outside. She asked the little fellow his name and teacher. That morning, he was escorted to the HEALS clinic and given a new pair of shoes for the winter. Unbeknownst to HEALS, his family was living in a shelter. We sent a note home encouraging the family to call HEALS for further assistance. Several times throughout the year that sweet little fifth grader came by the clinic just to say hi. Recently, it has been difficult to fill orders because our shelves were a little bare. We often find a few sizes are more in demand than others, and it’s always difficult to tell our clinics we are not able to send the shoes they requested. In turn, the child has to wait until we can get the size in stock.Imagine our great relief when we saw the fantastic response to our shoe drive at Landers McClarty Subaru! We are pleased to report our shelves are once again stocked and shoes are being distributed across the city of Huntsville and Madison County as quickly as we are able to fill the orders! Thank you to Landers McLarty Subaru, Frank Williams, and the rest of the community for helping HEALS, Inc. to keep our patients feet warm and dry!

North Alabama Rescue Transports – Jeffrey R - Jeffrey R

During the first year of Subaru ownership, I experienced a little more Love in my Heart by aiding in multiple animal rescue transports passing through Northern Alabama. My Subaru story began shortly after finding my new passion of moving animals from high occupancy/high kill shelters to other locations willing and able to support/shelter/foster/forever home these animals needing a second chance on life. It was then that I realized my current vehicles were coming up short and I made a visit to Landers McLarty Subaru – Huntsville to purchase my first and definitely not my last Subaru Outback. With my new spacious cargo area, comfortable ride and undeniable safety features I completed 17 transports carrying 58 animals over 3,198 miles during 2017. It wasn’t until I joined the Subaru family that I found out how committed the Landers McLarty team is to helping local animal shelters and organizations as part of the Subaru Love Promise. This was further solidified during my last vehicle service when I was introduced to Danny from public relations and he donated five Shelter Kits to help my cause after hearing my story. It was these starter kits full of treats, toys, bowls and leashes that found their way onto my last transport of the year as five dogs headed North. Each kit provided them with the essentials for their much-needed new start on life. Thank you, Landers McLarty Subaru – Huntsville for showing compassion for these animals that have nothing but unconditional love but no voice to be heard.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

K-9 Emergency Solved - Stacy B

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

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.

"I love my job"

Finding Ursa a Home! - Shannon S

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

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

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

Dawson Elementary Field Day - Yolanda D

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

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.

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.

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!

Subaru goes Red for Heart Month - Stephanie C

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.

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 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

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

(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 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

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!

Ability Plus Fun Day - Chasity P

Ability Plus could not thank Frank Williams and Landers McLarty Subaru enough for sponsoring our Consumer Fun Day. This special event was filled with love, laughter, smiles, and happiness. Here at Ability Plus, we strive each and every day to help our consumers reach their highest potential and with the help of Landers McLarty Subaru, we were able to do just that. The event took place on May 15, 2016 and consisted of activities such as: Carnival games, face painting, inflatables, food, a DJ, Huntsville Fire Department and cars featured from Landers McLarty Subaru. Our consumers also had the opportunity to dunk Frank Williams and our own CEO, Dr. Karockas Watkins, in the dunk tank. Everyone had a blast!

Be a Hero - Melissa L

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

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

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

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

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

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.
