Supporting organizations that support Rochester - Annie W

Next Chapter Ministries of Rochester, MN would like to extend our sincere gratitude for the generous donation from Subaru of Rochester. We are a non-profit organization that has provided support to the Rochester community for over 20 years. It is only through the generosity of others who believe in the work we do that this has been possible. We were recently blessed with a generous donation which helped cover part of the expenses for our annual fundraising dinner. This donation allowed for the donations we received to immediately and directly impact the men, women and teens in this community who are impacted by the cycles of incarceration. Thank you Subaru for believing in and supporting the mission of Next Chapter!

Subaru of Rochester takes the Polar Plunge - Savanna C

Subaru of Rochester team members took the Polar Plunge in Foster-Arend Park on Saturday, March 20 in support of Special Olympics Minnesota. The team managed to raise $2,364 which will help provide year-round training and services to over 8,100 athletes across the state. “I want to do my part in raising as much money as possible for these incredible kids and what they are going through, because it takes more heart than what I have. All I’m doing is jumping in a frozen lake,” said James Albien, organizer of Subaru of Rochester’s team. “It’s not about us, it’s about the kids.” The Rochester Polar Plunge had 481 plungers who raised a total of $167,948 for Special Olympics Minnesota.
