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!

Kindergarten classroom gets generous donation - Jennifer H

I wanted to express my gratitude to Southern Oregon Subaru for selecting my classroom to receive a generous donation of $500 through Rocky Rawstern, from Southern Oregon Subaru, came to our school in September delivering gift boxes to each teacher that was chosen for this amazing scholarship. I presented the gift box to my class and together we opened the box and added the supplies to our shelves. The students were very excited that our class was awarded this special gift. We then talked about community and how our local community members care about our schools and want to see everyone be successful. As a kindergarten classroom, we use a lot of supplies and manipulatives each year and through this donation, I will be able to provide more of what my students need in order to learn. Thank you again, Jennifer Hawkins

Our staff gives back - Rocky R

Our Digital Media Manager, Rocky Rawstern, is a regular blood donor, and today he donated his 96th pint (12th gallon). Rocky says that giving back to our community comes in many forms, from donating blood, to volunteering where needed, to mentoring youth. Everyone can give back to their community in some way, and in return, make this a better world. Thank you, Rocky, you did good!

Therapy Dog Team Rosa & LuLu - Rosa R

Rosa and LuLu have been a Therapy Dog Team in Southern Oregon since 2017 when LuLu was just 4 months old. Our desire is to make a difference in the lives of others through our therapy work. Visiting the sick and the elderly has changed our lives! When Covid hit in early March 2020 we were disappointed, since we were no longer able to visit the patients and staff we grew to love and appreciate so much. So in order to brighten their days we started taking funny photos of us doing every day things and sending them off to the four facilities we used to visit and around a dozen hospitals throughout the US. The response was overwhelmingly heart touching! We have recently published some of those pictures in our book, “The Adventures of Rosa & LuLu”. So it is with great appreciation that we thank Southern Oregon Subaru for sponsoring us and donating 33 copies of our book to Doernbecher’s Children’s Hospital in Portland, Fruitdale Elementary in Grants Pass and Helman Elementary in Ashland. Your kind generosity will reach many children and make their day a little happier. Thank you very much Southern Oregon Subaru for giving back to your community through the Subaru Love Promise 🦮💕💕🦮

Hearts & Vines Foundation thanks you!! - Christin S

Hearts & Vines Foundation was established in 1993 when community members recognized the need to support our local Domestic Violence shelter, when it was in danger of closing. Since then, the foundation has grown and expanded to support numerous local programs with the focus on education, elimination, and supporting victims of Domestic Violence. Since then, we've raised almost $4 million with the help of organizations like Southern Oregon Subaru! We thank you!

Southern Oregon Subaru knows what it means to truly be community leaders as they continue to demonstrate the importance of arts and entertainment in our region. We are so grateful for their support, with our four choruses, as they continue to help us enrich, educate, and entertain those in the Rogue Valley. We see them as a true partner in our region as they understand the value in not only what we do as an organization but what our fellow arts partners offer to our community. We are thankful for the continued support and look forward to our partnership for years to come.
