MN Adult & Teen Challenge Rochester - Matt M

If you've paid any attention to the news lately, you'll know that drug and alcohol addiction has been plaguing our community. In fact, in 2020 over 1,000 MN residents lost their lives to overdose, not to mention the countless more who struggle with addiction each day. At MN Adult & Teen Challenge, our mission is to help these men, women, and teens find freedom from addiction. Our Rochester campus opened in 2014 with a 100 bed treatment facility for men. In 2017, we opened a 74 bed women's facility. Within our walls, our clients find life transformation and are able to return to our communities as productive members of society. Subaru of Rochester helps this change happen by supporting us every year as one of our corporate sponsors for our Gala. This support helps us to cover the costs of putting on this event, which is our largest fundraiser of the year. Without this Gala, we would not be able to do what we do. Thank you Subaru for helping us to save lives!!!

Paws and Claws Loves Subaru - Tanya J

Paws and Claws has been a part of this community for 42 years. During this time there have been different challenges as well as opportunities for growth. We have been so blessed to have such wonderful community support, not only from adopters and volunteers, but also from businesses like Subaru. Subaru’s support for shelter pets and adoption is so welcome, even more so in the trying times that COVID has brought upon all of us. Paws and Claws relies solely on donations and community support, as we receive no government funding. The donations from Subaru to Paws and Claws have been so helpful, and the adorable New Pet Parent Kits also put smiles on many adopters’ faces (not to mention the dogs!)! Support from businesses like Subaru help Paws and Claws to continue to grow, and continue to help animals in need, even during challenging times.

Subaru Supports Franklin Elementary Classrooms - Sam P

Franklin Elementary has been incredibly fortunate to receive a $5,000 Subaru Loves Learning donation. This donation has directly benefitted the students in our school community. Through these funds, ten teachers each received $500 to purchase classroom resources to better support our students' learning and educational needs. When our school staff first found out about this generous donation, they were overwhelmed by the amount of this support and generosity. Every day our teachers work to meet the educational needs of our students. Having the additional resources provided by this donation has been incredibly helpful for our classrooms. We are especially grateful to Subaru of Rochester for thinking of our school community for this generous donation. This donation has had a profound impact on the students within our school community. In gratitude, Sam Pearson Franklin Elementary & Montessori at Franklin Principal

Rochester Farmers Market - Savanna C

We are so thankful to Subaru of Rochester for being one of our title sponsors for our Power of Produce (POP) Program this summer! POP is a farmers market incentive program for children ages 4 to 12. Each week, children receive a $2 token to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables. POP engages children at the market and empowers them to make healthful food choices, and has been demonstrated to help in building healthy, prospering communities. We aim to create a social norm around farmers market shopping and promote an equitable space for all community members, benefiting families, our local economy, and southeastern Minnesota farmers. With the support of local businesses, community partners, dedicated volunteers, and private donors, last season we offered POP at the market for 14 weeks and reached over 400 children! In addition to promoting healthy choices, POP provides an excellent opportunity for our community partners to interact with families each week. We loved having Subaru come out and join us at the market and share that Subaru love with our customers. We could not have done this program without the generosity of Subaru of Rochester! Thank you!!
