Love Promise Stories from Johnson Subaru of Cary

Subaru and Johnson Subaru of Cary believe in making a positive impact on the communities in which we live and work. We uphold that belief through our Love Promise Community Commitment. Every month, we select inspiring stories from customers and partners from around our area who strive to support our collective commitment and feature them here

Johnson Subaru 'Shares the Love' with CFOH  –  Lori S

Children’s Flight of Hope is rounding out three decades of providing air transportation for children in need of specialized medical care. As we reflect upon the past 29 years, ‘Community’ consistently comes to mind. The families we serve do not have a choice in the conditions they face, however, our partners do have a choice in the missions they serve. We are honored that Johnson Subaru of Cary chose to support the CFOH mission through its Subaru Share the Love program. The results of these philanthropic efforts contributed to our delivery of 1,336 flights for children in 2019. As we commit to existing families for the entirety of their children’s treatments, the support of Subaru also allow us to welcome new families in 2020. CFOH assists children such as one-year old, Edel, who travels from Eagle Mountain, Utah, to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to treat Retinoblastoma. Her parents, Spencer and Abigail, note that our services “have been such a light during so many difficult and trying months. It has been such a blessing to our family, and has given us the time and energy to focus on finding the correct treatments and doctors to help save our little princess. Thank you for helping our daughter travel to receive life-saving treatments. Because of you and your generosity, our daughter is well on her way to being cancer free and has a chance at living a normal and happy life. We are forever indebted to you and your service.” These words of gratitude extend to the entire CFOH community especially those who supported the Johnson Subaru of Cary’s Share the Love event.

SPCA of Wake County - Roxy's Story  –  Sarah S

From providing toys to donating funds for lifesaving care, Johnson Subaru of Cary has been there for the homeless pets at the SPCA of Wake County. Roxy, a 12-year-old dog, featured in this photo with her new mom, came into SPCA Wake’s care when another local shelter reached out to us for help. Roxy was suffering from severe dental disease and also needed to be evaluated for a heart murmur, requiring resources that the shelter did not have. Because of supporters like Johnson Subaru, we were able to take Roxy into our care, and, on Subaru’s first-ever National Make A Dog’s Day, Roxy was adopted and sent home with her “New Parent Kit,” also generously donated by Johnson Subaru. We are so grateful for Johnson Subaru’s partnership and know with their continued support, we can make an even greater impact in the future for the pets and people in need in our community.

Books!  –  Hannah W

Our school is blown away by the generosity of Johnson Subaru of Cary. They graciously brought boxes of brand new award winning books to our school! Student and teacher faces lit up with excitement and curiosity as they were handed out. Students gathered around the books with "oohs" and "ahs". The selected books fit perfectly with student interests and even a variety of grade level standards. Illustrations and stories are beautiful and enriching. These books have been an amazing addition in our classroom libraries and continue to build a love for reading in our students! Thanks again to Johnson Subaru of Cary for these amazing books!

Make a Dog's Day  –  Andy A

Subaru is proud to establish the first-ever National Make A Dog’s Day October 22nd. As part of Subaru Loves Pets month, we’re inviting all dog lovers to do something extra special for their furry best friends. Plus, Subaru will be focusing our efforts on helping the hardest-to-adopt shelter Dogs –those with special needs-find homes. Get ready to fall in love withThe Underdogs. #MakeADogsDay Meet Gabi! Gabi has been at the Humane Society of NWGA (Northwest Georgia) for seven years. If you asked the volunteers to pick their favorite animal at the shelter, Gabi would win hands down. She does not do well with dogs or cats so must be the only animal in an adult only family. She loves people and will bond very quickly to you. Gabi would make someone a great companion. She is waiting patiently for her forever home. If you have room in your heart and your home for this sweet girl then please fill out an adoption application, highlight and right click this link: #MakeADogsDay #SubaruLovesPets #TheUnderdogs

Johnson Subaru Provides Flights for Sick Kids  –  Lori S

In its 5th anniversary, the popular Triangle Hops for Hope beer competition benefiting Children’s Flight of Hope (CFOH) recently held its most successful event to date. Sponsored by Johnson Subaru of Cary, the event raised over $160,000 to provide air transportation for children in need of specialized medical care. This year, 26 corporate teams were paired with 24 local breweries to create an original beer. Participants showcased their creations to 1,500 attendees on September 14 at Coastal Credit Union Midtown Park in North Hills. This year’s expanded event included an exciting flyover by the Bandit Flight Team, three bands on stage, a vendor village, local food trucks, and games on the lawn for kids. Children’s Flight of Hope has provided a record 1,040 flights to date in 2019. We assist children like Zeke (pictured), who requires specialized medical care far from his home. His dad, Derek, recently shared his gratitude: “There are so many difficulties to having a child with cancer, but having CFOH come alongside us and purchase our flights has alleviated one of the burdens. We don't have to worry about whether we can afford the flights, whether the travel makes the trial an impossibility or anything else, because we know that CFOH has our backs. When we don't have to worry about logistics, we are more free to love.” Thank you, Johnson Subaru, for supporting our efforts to assist families like these during a time when they need it most.

Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina  –  Janis N

Madison's wish to be a marine animal trainer was an experience she'll never forget, and by the looks of it, she's a natural! Madison got to spend two days behind the scenes with trainers in Key Largo learning all the special tricks! Madison's mom shared the following. "This experience was truly unforgettable. Madison now has a goal for the future to be an animal trainer too!" A wish helps children see the impossible as possible, it helps them look beyond their illness. Thanks to the support of partners like Johnson Subaru of Cary, more life-changing wishes, just like Madison's, are being granted in eastern North Carolina! We are so grateful for their support!

LLS & Subaru deliver touch of home to Family House  –  Meredith J

Katelyn Paul, from Johnson Subaru, and Meredith Johnson from The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, NC Chapter delivered 5 boxes of blankets to the NC SECU Family house at UNC hospitals on July 24th. We were greeted by Janice McAdams, Executive Director for Family House, with a warm smile and big enthusiasm for receiving the blankets again. She exclaimed “we love to get the call that Subaru blankets are being delivered!” While the Family House is undergoing a major renovation currently she shared how much the residents truly appreciate these blankets and give them a touch of home while staying with a loved one in the hospital. She can’t wait for next year when we will be able to deliver blankets to a beautiful new facility and the impact these deliveries have with their staff and families year after year!

Johnson Subaru Gives Hope to Children In Need  –  Haley T

Children's Flight of Hope is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing air transportation for children to access specialized medical care. Over the last few years, we have been honored recipients of the "Share the Love" event during the holiday season, which has grown each year and has helped our organization provide nearly 250 flights for ill and injured children. Children's Flight of Hope, alongside our devoted partner Johnson Subaru of Cary, is changing the way kids with serious illnesses and injuries are treated through our mission of love, joy, and hope. Providing air transportation for young patients and their families gives access to specialized medical care that might otherwise be out of reach, which in turn encourages faster and safer recoveries. We are so grateful to Subaru for using their platform and promise to bring awareness of our mission to their customers, and raise money to support the children and families we serve, like Christian's parents who wrote to us: “We just wanted to take the time to tell you Thank You! We appreciate the generous support you've provided our family over the last year. Our lives would be very different without you. Honestly, I don't know if we would ever have been able to seek this lifesaving treatment for our son without your organization. You gave us the means and the courage to travel from our home to his treatment hundreds of miles away. We pray God blesses each of you just as you have blessed our family!”

Peak Lab Rescue Loves Johnson Subaru  –  Sharon G

In 2018, Peak Lab Rescue celebrates 10 YEARS of saving Lab and Lab Mixes from abuse, neglect, abandonment and high-kill shelters throughout North Carolina. Great partners like Johnson Subaru have helped us save more than 1,000 dogs this year. By collecting monetary donations and dog care items throughout the month of November, Subaru supported our cause and made a difference right here in our community. Our service area was hit by not one but TWO hurricanes this Fall, displacing many pets. Peak Lab Rescue took in more than 100 dogs who were left homeless by Hurricanes Florence and Michael. The dog food, beds, leashes, collars, and toys collected during the Subaru Share the Love event will be used by these dogs while they await permanent adoption. Collecting these donations at the dealership allowed us to thank employees personally for taking the time to care. We brought along Porter, a Black Lab saved by Peak Lab Rescue. His family owns TWO Subarus! Porter enjoyed meeting staff as well as customers and took home his very own squeaky Subaru toy to play with. Thanks again, Johnson Subaru, for making this community a special place to live.

LLS and Johnson Subaru share the warmth!  –  Meredith J

Katelyn Paul, from Johnson Subaru of Cary, and I arrived at the SECU Family House at UNC Hospitals together and unloaded the blankets provided by Subaru in to the newly renovated care facility for families needing to stay near the hospital during a loved one's extended hospital stay. We were welcomed by the very warm and caring development staff and coordinators at Family House! While unloading the blankets a sweet woman from Greenville, NC and her grandson, who have been staying at Family House while her husband is being treated for lymphoma, stopped to talk with us. We listened to her story, give her a blanket for him, and shared LLS literature. She was very hopeful and grateful! Family House guests look forward to receiving the amazing blankets for a piece of comfort during their stay or warmth during treatment. The staff at Family House look forward to this wonderful gift from our partnership!

National Parks Adventures...indoors!  –  Emily B

Marbles Kids Museum and Johnson Subaru's experiential partnership brings MacGillivray Freeman's National Parks Adventures to the giant screen and adventure play to the museum! Through 3-D technology in Marbles IMAX and back-to-basics pretend play in our museum, kids and families have created their own adventures to the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone and Yosemite. Research shows that when children become truly engaged with the natural world at a young age, the experience is likely to stay with them in a powerful way—shaping their subsequent environmental path and growing up to be adults who care more about the environment! Thanks to Johnson Subaru, Marbles has been able to offer engaging and accessible opportunities for families to experience the great outdoors - without having to leave Raleigh!

Subaru Loves Peak Lab Rescue  –  Sharon G

Peak Lab Rescue is proud to work with Johnson Subaru to help save Labs and Lab Mixes from homelessness and high-kill shelters in our state. Thanks to great partners like Subaru, this year we will save nearly 800 dogs! We've worked together in lots of ways - The Subaru Loves Pets program provided us with lots of New Adopter Kits full of goodies to send home with dogs starting their new life as part of a family. And Adoption Events at the dealership are a great way to meet lots of new adopters. Our "Stuff the Subaru" donation drive resulted in an Outback full of much needed dog food and supplies. And most of all, as Title Sponsor of the "Raise the Woof Comedy Show", Subaru helped us raise nearly $5,000 to save Labs and Lab Mixes from abuse, neglect, abandonment and high-kill shelters throughout North Carolina. Subaru is clearly dedicated to serving our community. Our partnership has changed the lives of lots of Labs in need and it's great to know that we can always count on them!

LLS helps Johnson Subaru spread love & warmth  –  Meredith J

I met Katelyn Paul and Chad Chapman both of Johnson Subaru of Cary at the SECU Family House at UNC Hospitals. Family House is a home away from home for patients and families of patients that live more than 50 miles away but need to be near the hospital for an extended period for treatment. Janice Ross of Family House was very enthusiastic and excited to receive the blankets, craft kits and care cards from Johnson Subaru. We got to see her pass out a blanket and care card to a caregiver as she passed by and the joy and sweetness of her face showed how much it meant to her.

Johnson Subaru's vision of family and pets  –  jacklyn k

Thanks to Johnson Subaru's vision of family and pets, they have made it possible for us to hold Jackie's Puppapalooza for the last four years. This event helps the canine community come together for a dog-friendly and family event. Puppapalooza is an afternoon of fun and education; homeless dogs are adopted, money is raised to help the SPCA, with local pet stores and vets volunteering their expertise. Our goals are to help pets find their forever homes and inform pet parents on the steps to creating a happy, healthy home. The event gives everyone the opportunity to engage their pet in a fun and safe environment. Johnson Subaru is dedicated to families and their pets, and their support has helped this event grow every year- thanks to them, we've grown to expand to a new, larger space and will be hosting Puppapalooza in 2018 at the Dorton Building at the NC Fairgrounds. We hope to see you there!

Johnson Subaru of Cary Gives the Gift of Hope  –  Chase M

Children's Flight of Hope is a locally based non-profit that provides air transportation for children to access specialized medical care across the country. When families can't afford to travel to the best care, CFOH is there for them, thanks to our supporters like Johnson Subaru of Cary. As a longtime partner, Johnson Subaru has sponsored CFOH's special events and chosen CFOH as its hometown charity of choice for the popular Subaru Share the Love event for the past four years, raising over $11,000 in 2016 alone. Johnson Subaru's financial gifts to CFOH give children access to life-changing medical treatment that they would otherwise have to go without. With Children's Flight of Hope, Johnson Subaru gives these children the most important gift of all: the gift of hope. Over the years, Johnson Subaru of Cary has raised enough money to provide more than 60 flights for sick and injured children and their families. They have truly changed the lives of members of our community, and helped ensure that all children have access to the care they need.

Chatham County Council on Aging  –  Melanie G

In December, 2016 the Chatham County Council on Aging hosted a Subaru Rodeo! For the event, Johnson Subaru let us display a brand new Outback, while we had a local rodeo performer do tricks with animals, we had corn hole, hot chocolate and were selling raffle tickets for a canoe that the Great Outdoor Provision Company of Chapel Hill donated. Johnson Subaru has partnered with the Chatham County Council on Aging for the last several years for the Meals on Wheels campaign and has even supported our volunteers by sponsoring our annual Volunteer Dinner. We are grateful for our relationship with Johnson Subaru and this year, our Meals on Wheels program was the recipient of a wonderful grant through Meals on Wheels of America and the Subaru Share the Love campaign. Thank you both!

Johnson Subaru Loves Learning!  –  Katelyn P

This summer, Johnson Subaru of Cary was proud to partner with Apex Elementary School for Subaru Loves Learning. Johnson Subaru knows the deepest learning happens when students have the tools they need to inspire new ways of thinking and seeing the world. Through the Subaru Loves Learning initiative, we were able to donate award winning science books to nearby Apex Elementary School. We were told by the teachers that the books would be great for the non-fiction book reports that the students are required to write!
