Burch Creek Elementary - Skylar F

We were very fortunate as a store to be able to donate to Burch Creek Elementary this year. We put together kits of pencils, markers, crayons, notebooks and delivered them to the school. These go to specific teachers that have a need for these in their classrooms. Along with that, our team took the time to right these teachers notes of encouragement for the school year. These teachers are helping the future generations with their learning and we want them to know how much we appreciate all their efforts.

Comfort in Cancer - Skylar F

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, Love is a noun meaning strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties, and a "promise" is a declaration that one will do something special. Working and volunteering for a company that is so passionate and supportive of members of our community is so valuable that I knew it was vital for me to be a part of our June outreach project. Our managers gathered in our regular morning meeting and mentioned the need for blankets and handwritten notes of encouragement at our local hospital, Ogden Regional. These gifts were immediately welcomed as comfort items for cancer patients. I thought this was so admirable because I remember the days when my grandfather was sick with pancreatic cancer. I remember seeing his frail body laying so limply without much to look forward to daily and the countless hours our family spent with him. Although it has been over a decade since my family lost our beloved patriarch, I still remember how his face lit up when my aunts, uncles, cousins, and I would walk into his hospital room with cards, drawings, and jokes. My hand shot up when asked who would want to deliver the blankets and the notes my coworkers and I had written because I knew this was bigger than me and our dealership. I had to be there. Ten of my coworkers and I loaded up in vehicles and headed that way. When we arrived, the hospital staff immediately welcomed us with open arms. Danice, a patient who happily came out to the lobby at first sight of smiling visitors, was just as accepting as the nurses. When I presented her with the gifts, her face lit up the room and filled my heart. It reminded me of all the times my grandpa's face lit up when we visited him. Before we left, a nurse approached us with teary eyes and explained that their Cancer Center is one of the smaller wings in this area. Most facilities have hundreds of patients, while Ogden Regional has less than 100 patients receiving treatment monthly. She said it is touching that their small facility would ever get recognition, and our employees' time spent on these thoughtful gifts was extraordinary. I am so glad that Subaru has such a commitment to uphold a Love Promise. Not only did I have the opportunity to show affection for others in my community, but I used this experience to feel close to my grandpa once again.

Weber High School Food Pantry - Jennifer B

Weber High School opened a food pantry at their school to help students with food insecurity gain access to food when it is needed. In Weber County alone, there is about 19.5% of children experiencing food insecurity. This includes students needing a quick snack during school as well as those that come in frequently having the chance to take pantry items home to their families. Young Subaru had the opportunity to go to our local store and pick up food for this pantry. This included things like protein shakes, fruit snacks, granola bars, trail mix, and apple sauce. When the food was delivered to the school, it was amazing to see the student involvement and having them join us in filling up the pantry.

Lantern House Non-Perishable Goods - Stacey G

During the winter months, it gets chilly here in in Ogden, Utah. The Lantern House is a refuge for those needing food, shelter, and critical emergency services. Young Subaru along with Subaru of America teamed up to keep these residents warm and stomachs full. We were fortunate enough to donate many blankets and socks. Along with that, our store took donations for non-perishable food items. Customers, employees, and those just passing through came in to donate to the cause. After we had gotten many donations, we went to our local store and purchased five carts full of food. On one frosty Friday morning, the Young Subaru team loaded up the trailer with these supplies and took them to the Lantern House. Thank you again for giving us the opportunity to serve those in our local community.

Backpack Packing Event - Weber School D

Young Subaru along with Young Caring for Our Young donated all the materials like notebooks, pencils, pens, and backpacks to those needing them for the school year. After those donations were gathered we packed them up into backpacks and fortunately we ended up putting together 100 backpacks full of school supplies for the kids in Title 1 Schools. There ended up being 60 Elementary and 40 Junior High students that were able to get the backpacks in Weber School District.

Benny's Second Chance Thanks to Young Subaru! - Shannon E

Hello, hoomans! I’m Benny and boy, do I have a story to tell you! I came to the Humane Society of Utah in mid-September, hoping to find a new home. Over the last two years, I’ve been hospitalized twice due to an infection in my legs. I have severe allergies, too, that have to be treated with antibiotics. When I came to HSU, I showed sensitivity to being handled by strangers, although I grew to love the foster team there so very much! I just needed a little time to warm up to people, but sometimes I’d get overly exuberant while playing ball. Fortunately, HSU worked with me through positive reinforcement training, and I improved with time. Because of my situation, I’m considered an 'underdog", so it took a little longer for me to find a home. In October, Young Subaru offered to promote and support underdogs like me through their Subaru Loves Pets program. Thanks to their support, I can now report I’m healthy and happy in my new home!

Rosco the "Underdog" - Zane J

Zane, a loyal customer of Young Subaru for years came in one day with his “underdog” Rosco. He told us he rescued “Rue” from a breeder who was going to let her starve since she had an injury and was the runt of the litter. Zane said that she instantly became the best dog he’s ever loved. Rue has a spinal injury which doesn’t allow her to walk so Zane has to carry her everywhere. We knew we wanted to help Rue and Zane, so Young Subaru’s staff donated their time and funds to help purchase a dog wheelchair for Rue, as well as every dog accessory Subaru offers. Zane told us this changed his life as well as Rue’s. Young Subaru is more than just a car company. For the full story, please watch this video.


Treehouse Museum Check Donation - Skylar F

The Ogden Treehouse Museum is a place near and dear to our hearts here at Young Subaru. They are a local reading-oriented museum that encourages kids to "step into a story" via hand-on activities and exhibits. Some of these exhibits include a diner where the children can wait on customers or flip burgers on the grill. Another is shopping at a grocery store or even building castles and playing with knights! Young Subaru had the wonderful opportunity of presenting the Treehouse Museum with a check to help with any upcoming events or future exhibits.

12,500 Pantry Packs - Skylar F

Young Subaru along with America First Credit Union, Young Caring For Our Young, and the rest of the Young Automotive Group got together to help children in the state of Utah and Idaho. 1 in 5 kids are food insecure. That means that they might not have something to eat on the weekends when school lunch and breakfast aren’t available. Each store in the Young Automotive Group got together and assembled 500 pantry packs each. These packs are meals used by schools to sustain youngsters over the weekend. We had such a great time working together at Young Subaru to put these together for the children!
