Grateful for SOSubaru sponsorship - Evan S

We could not be more grateful for SO Subaru's sponsorship and contribution to this year's Roxy Rumble. As a first year event, we were looking for a way to bring together this amazing running community for a new and exciting race format, and to celebrate getting everyone back together after pressing pause on all our events for 2020. The SO Subaru sponsorship made it possible for us to not only create a new race logo and secure the proper permitting and insurance for the event, but provided a finish line atmosphere complete with food and beverages for all the runners and spectators. We were even able to purchase a few raffle items and award several participants with prizes. Our goal is to continue to grow this event and create a race series up on the Roxy Ann trails with proceeds benefiting our community. We appreciate SO Subaru's commitment to the community and are honored to partner with such an amazing organization.

Share the Love 2020 - Ryan J

The annual December Share the Love Adoption Day is SoHumane’s largest and most successful adoption event. Our partnership with Southern Oregon Subaru has enabled us to rescue hundreds of dogs through our Saving Train program. The Saving Train transports pets in danger of euthanasia from overcrowded shelters to SoHumane where they receive a second chance to have a forever home and family. During a most unusual year, Southern Oregon Subaru has been unwavering in offering their support for pets who are homeless. Their generosity creates many happily-ever-after’s for the dogs and cats. Our community is richer for the kindness they show to animals and animal lovers.

Medford’s oldest tradition! - Darcey M

The Pear Blossom Festival is a 66-year tradition here in the Rogue Valley. We are Medford’s oldest tradition and have grown the festival from a small 25-entry parade, to a 4-week, 10 major event festival. We could not have done this without the generous support and loyalty of our sponsors and community partners. For many years, Subaru sponsored T-shirts for our hundreds of loyal volunteers that make this festival happen. When we created a new event 6 years ago, the Pedals N Pears Bike Event, with 4-ride distances for every bike enthusiast, Subaru was one of our first generous sponsors to believe in us and help make this event happen. With their generous support, we can provide bike enthusiasts, both single and families, with a wonderful bike riding event that draws riders from all over Oregon. We are able to showcase our beautiful valley during the rides and provide a unique experience for families with children at our family ride. Our vision is to support our youth, families, and our community, and with all the Subaru supports in our valley, we know they share that vision as well! Thank you Subaru, for believing in us, and helping us grow and carry on Medford’s oldest tradition! Darcey Mann-Self Pear Blossom Festival President

SOSubaru has been an amazing community partner - Chad S

Southern Oregon Subaru has been an amazing community partner at our regional triathlons and bike races. At those races, Southern Oregon Subaru is always at the front and center of our race culture, standing beside us in our mission to utilize races to inspire the community to get outside and give kids an opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors. Proceeds from our races give hundreds of kids to an opportunity to attend summer camp, and plants the seed for kids at a young age to experience outside recreation in Southern Oregon. Thank you to Southern Oregon Subaru for helping us make this happen!

They truly believe in the Love Promise - Karen E

Puff was surrendered to the Southern Oregon Humane Society with a group of small dogs when their guardian could no longer care for them. Sweet dogs, they all suffered from a variety of ailments. Tiny ten-year-old Puff had ear mites, a yeast infection, a heart murmur, and periodontal disease. Her fur was dirty and her nails extremely long. She was in desperate need of dental attention, a situation not uncommon for older small dogs. SoHumane staff gave Puff medications and parasite preventatives, updated her vaccinations and made note of her need for specialized dental care. Her adoption during our month-long Subaru Loves Pets event was a time of celebration for staff and volunteers. Southern Oregon Subaru shares their love for the dogs and cats at SoHumane throughout the year by being the Toast for Tails Saving Train Sponsor, hosting an annual Share the Love Adoption event, and promoting adoptable dogs and cats on social media. Their generosity creates many happily-ever-afters for the dogs and cats. During a most unusual year, Southern Oregon Subaru has been unwavering in their support for pets who are homeless. Our community is richer for the kindness and generosity they show to animals and animal lovers. They truly believe in the Love Promise commitment they have made to their Southern Oregon community.

Making our community better - Taneea W

Southern Oregon Subaru has been a long-time Direct Involvement Recreation Teaching Sponsor and we are incredibly thankful for that. But what does that mean to our community? It means that kids and parents are able to learn about the environment and how to care for it at no cost to themselves and our community gets to educate and teach each other, creating mutually beneficial relationships that nurture and build community connections. It means that people like you get to participate in making your community better, changing the climate you live in and spreading hope and joy. Thank you and thank Southern Oregon Subaru!!

We are better for their partnership! - Dee Anne E

One of the first calls I received to offer help after the devastating Almeda and Obenchain Fires was Southern Oregon Subaru. It didn’t matter what we drove or rode. They simply deliver on the promise of love of community! Southern Oregon Subaru showed up with $25,000 to help with the beginning of our long-term recovery fund. The fires ran from Ashland to South Medford with devastating impacts on Talent and Phoenix, Oregon. We have lost 3,003 structures and 1,628 vehicles and yet these are remarkable times of devastation and generosity. Thanks to their early leading gift, United Way of Jackson County’s fund is already at $1.4 million. Yes, they’re in the car business and more importantly, they’re in the love and community business! We are better for their partnership! Dee Anne Everson, CEO/Executive Director United Way of Jackson County

“Though he be little, he is fierce.” - Kena S

We say this quite often, the children selected for the Sparrow Clubs program (we lovingly refer to them as “Sparrows”) are some of the most medically fragile humans we know, but also some of the bravest heroes we know. This is Sparrow Gabe. He was born with a rare and very severe form of juvenile arthritis and a condition called MAS. MAS basically affects his entire body, especially his heart, kidneys, and liver. Gabe has nearly lost his life on many occasions. Because of his many health challenges, Gabe is extremely medically fragile, but as I mentioned, he is also extremely brave. The day Sparrow Clubs introduced Gabe to the student body of Cascade Christian High School was a day that changed that entire student body. Gabe’s story, Gabe’s life, Gabe’s perseverance inspired these kids so much that it instantly placed Gabe in “Hero” status with these students. He became the catalyst to the heart change these students experienced during that assembly. Life is full of challenge, many ups and downs, set backs, losses… but determination can get you through it all. During an assembly, Sparrow Clubs will challenge the students to complete one hour of service in honor of their Sparrow. This one hour of serving the community will unlock sponsored funds that will go directly to helping their Sparrow get through their medical journey. In Gabe’s case, if students of Cascade Christian would choose to serve others for one hour they would help him fight his battle. Every student attending that assembly jumped to their feet. It's incredible to watch a little boy witness an entire group of high school students physically show that they are on his team, they are going to fight with him, encourage him, and be inspired by him. Students did just that. They immediately went to work serving the community and unlocking the funds sponsored by SO Subaru. It did not end there, however. Gabe truly became their hero. This little boy was asked to lead the charge each Friday night as the players entered the field to face their opponent in the weekly football game. Gabe did indeed lead these players out onto the field, but as a Sparrow, Gabe led all the students of Cascade Christian to something greater than a game. “Though he is little, he is fierce.” Gabe, like all of our Sparrows, powerfully led students to compassion, empathy, kindness, generosity, and service. It is because of the generosity of Southern Oregon Subaru that this club was possible, giving hundreds of young people the opportunity to be part of something bigger than themselves, to tap into compassion, and to make a real difference through serving others. Not only was Gabe able to receive funds that has helped him medically, he also had community. Thank you SO Subaru for being a Hero to Sparrow Clubs!
