Big Thanks to Southern Oregon Subaru! - Karen G

Josephine County Search and Rescue would like to give a big shout out to Southern Oregon Subaru! We are so grateful that Southern Oregon Subaru sponsored a full page promotional ad in the Gift Giving Flyer that the Daily Courier publishes every year. Because of this ad, we were able to share our mission and goals with the community. This, in turn, generated donations to use throughout the year. Thanks again to Southern Oregon Subaru. We couldn't have done it without you!

Southern Oregon Subaru is AMAZING! - Cindy G

In late 2021, my husband and I decided it was time for me to get a new car. On the recommendation from my boss at Women’s Crisis Support Team, I made an appointment with Nick Knutson to inquire about buying a Subaru. Excited by the Subaru brand, I ordered a new Subaru Forester which I received in February. It was by far my best car buying experience ever! After talking with Nick about domestic abuse in Josephine County, he introduced me to Randy. Randy asked me to do a commercial about my new Subaru, as well as the work we do at WCST. Our commercial has given great new exposure to WCST even as we have provided services to survivors of domestic and sexual violence in Southern Oregon since 1977. Currently, Southern Oregon Subaru is a matching sponsor for WCST’s annual “Rise to End Violence” campaign. Southern Oregon Subaru’s commitment to help regional nonprofit organizations is amazing. Their staff, their company, and their vehicles are all amazing! Sincerely, Cindy Jantzer Grondahl, Development Coordinator Women’s Crisis Support Team

SOSubaru Supports Education with Loves to Learn - Rocky R

We were able to buy art supplies and books to add to our library. The kids were most excited to use the art supplies because they are something we didn't have in our class. The books added some differentiation to our classroom and the students were excited to read the books. Beau Brown (3rd Grade) Central Point Elementary

Changing Children's Lives - Erin C

Subaru was a recent sponsor of our “Magical Fireflies, Childhood Dreams and Changing Lives” Luncheon event for CASA of Jackson County. Southern Oregon Subaru collaborates with CASA every year to hold this luncheon, which serves as a fundraiser, educational and recruitment event for our program. This year, we raised the highest amount we have ever raised, in addition to giving a formal CASA child a voice on stage to tell her personal story. It was emotional, empowering and healing. We value and appreciate our partnership with Southern Oregon Subaru, and celebrate everything they do for our community.

Compassion is one of the mightiest forces on earth! - Kena S

Sparrow Clubs believes that compassion is one of the mightiest forces on earth and we all have the power to wield it. When we choose compassion, we help others, but we also help ourselves. Sparrow Clubs gives students hands-on opportunities to make real-world differences in the lives of others, and with the help of our sponsors like Southern Oregon Subaru, Sparrow Clubs can reach more students and more children in medical need.

Sharing the love of the outdoors - Steve W

When the pandemic lockdown hit in March 2020, Southern Oregon Land Conservancy's Education Program Manager Tara Laidlaw had been on the job less than a week. Tasked to start a field education program based at SOLC's Rogue River Preserve near Eagle Point, students were all staying home. Tara began with on-line resources and teacher training to prepare for the day when students could resume gathering in person. Two years later, a trip to Rogue River Preserve is a hot ticket: nearby schools have booked all the available dates to explore the Preserve's floodplain forest and oak woodlands alongside the Rogue River. Over those two years, SOLC has hosted nearly 3000 student field days, giving elementary through high school students a chance to experience the magic of nature. Practicing nature journaling in the forest, the students often share that they've never sat so still and quiet before and didn't know that they could. Said Tara, "We're not the only organization with a trail, but for many of these kids, we're the first trail they've experienced." Southern Oregon Subaru's support has helped us fulfill the promise we made when field trips were impossible, to share love of the outdoors with the next generation.

Goofy gets the help he needed - Rocky R

When Southern Oregon Subaru received word that a local dog had been bitten by a rattlesnake and would require expensive surgery, we, along with No Pet Left Behind, stepped up to fund his operation. Happy to report Goofy has recovered from the surgery and is now ready for his forever home. From Roxy Ann Veterinary Hospital: “Goofy is an unaltered male about 6 years old. He was brought to us with a wounded leg, severely swollen from a rattlesnake bite. Dr. Starnes recommended having it amputated as soon as possible. Goofy's owners could not afford the surgery, nor did they have the time to focus on his recovery. They owned multiple dogs on a farm. Their decision was to euthanize Goofy. Luckily, we were able to reach out and received help from No Pet Left Behind and Southern Oregon Subaru. The surgery was a success. Although it took him quite a while to fully recover, Goofy is now in great health. He is wonderful with other animals and loves to run. He is the heart of our clinic but would love a forever home, especially for Christmas. We do not know how he is with children and do ask that he be neutered.”

SOSubaru Supports Education - Cara T

A huge thanks to Southern Oregon Subaru for their generous grant. Our first-grade team used the grant to purchase STEAM materials. Young children benefit so much from hands on learning experiences (especially post COVID-19), and our students were able to receive art materials, manipulatives and a variety of engineering materials through the funds this grant provided. Their learning came to life as they explored and created with these unique materials. Melissa Telford Central Point Elementary First Grade Teacher

Russell The Bulldog - Laura J

When law enforcement executed a search warrant of a property, they found something they were not expecting: a bulldog! Animal Control transported this bulldog to our shelter. On arrival, he was underweight, missing large patches of fur, bleeding form multiple wounds, covered in parasites, and dealing with chronic infections that hadn't been treated. So, we got to work! The vet helped get him on proper medication to help his ailments, and he began a medicated bath regimen. He found a lovely foster mom, who called him Russell--and such began his next chapter. Russell thrived in his foster home, impressing everyone with his sunny personality and goofy antics. He made great strides in recovery, and was looking like a new dog. The next step for him was his neuter surgery, as well as an eyelid surgery to help see unimpeded. Both went smoothly and Russell was ready for his new family! He made a perfect match with his new family, who just love him to pieces. We are so grateful for the sponsorship from Southern Oregon Subaru to help highlight the 'underdogs' like Russell and helped him to find a home!
