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.

At Wildlife Safari we host a variety of events throughout the year. As one of Safari’s most important events, Day of Discovery welcomes those with special needs and considerations for a care free day at the Safari. It is a free day for adults and children with different challenges and disabilities to come out and enjoy the park. The event includes animal appearances and keeper talks, free train rides around the Safari Village, and free drive through tickets. Through their generous sponsorship, Southern Oregon Subaru helps make this annual event possible! Subaru helps us with the important role of providing a stress-free day of new adventures for guests who don’t get often get to do things like this. We thank them for their support and contribution!

The Medford Food Project Thanks Subaru! - Scott P

Southern Oregon Subaru has been supporting the Medford Food Project since October of 2013. Without their support we simply could not carry out our vital mission to build community and feed the hungry in our region. The Medford Food Project is the largest volunteer organization in Southern Oregon with nearly 3,000 volunteers donating and collecting food for the hungry in our community. Every 2 months, on the second Saturday of the month, our Neighborhood Coordinators pick up bags of healthy nonperishable food that neighbors have left outside their front doors. They leave empty green bags for next time, and take all the food to local Food Banks. The project began in January of 2011 and to-date we have collected over 1.8 million pounds of food. In 2021 alone we collected 220,865 pounds which provided an estimated 176,692 meals for hungry children, families and individuals in the greater Medford region. Although we are an all-volunteer organization, there are costs associated with doing this important work. We provide sturdy, bright green bags to our donors which they fill with food and leave out for us to pick up during our every-two-month pick up dates. We need Thank You cards printed to thank those generous donors and remind them of the next pick-up date. Southern Oregon Subaru has graciously provided funds for those kinds of expenses and that ongoing support is absolutely vital. Simply put, without that support we could not do this work. The Medford Food Project sends a big THANK YOU to Southern Oregon Subaru for your generous, ongoing support!

Thank you so much to Southern Oregon Subaru - Deanna W

Thank you so much to Southern Oregon Subaru for their support for Rogue Valley Farm to School. On a whim I pitched some of our projects about local food and seed capture to Stephanie, when I was there for an oil change. She, in turn, pitched to her manager and we received a generous donation! Rogue Valley Farm to School is an organization dedicated to garden education and improving access to quality, locally grown nutrition for local children. Recently we partnered with Phoenix High School culinary program to prepare 100 pounds of locally grown beets to serve to 7 Rogue Valley elementary schools. This introduced tasting beets in a fun way, taught students how to prepare them and benefited local farmers. We hope to partner with Phoenix High School again to process watermelons for food, juice and seed for our community in the Summer. This donation will help us greatly to continue to serve our community with access to the best local food. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts!

Thankful for involvement and support - Cara F

RISE Volleyball, Inc. is a Southern Oregon non-profit indoor volleyball club. In March of 2020 our volleyball season was cut short with the arrival of COVID-19 and as events would unfold, all gyms would close for the following year eliminating any hope the athletes had of continuing to play their sport. An opportunity arose to rent an open air pavilion and an indoor volleyball court and we jumped at the chance to keep kids playing sports without knowing how we would pay for it. Southern Oregon Subaru came to the rescue with a donation that helped make our crazy idea possible. We were able to conduct an entire season, scrimmages with other teams, camps, clinics and just recreational play for hundreds of athletes. Southern Oregon Subaru's commitment to the community kept young athletes engaged in physical activity, socializing with other kids in their community and practicing the sport they love in a safe and healthy environment during a time when this was quite literally impossible to do. We will always be thankful for Southern Oregon Subaru's involvement and support for our program and the children of Southern Oregon and the idea they helped make a reality. Cara R.

Porchfest Shares the Love of Music and Community - Janie D

Porchfest Grants Pass is so grateful for the support of Southern Oregon Subaru – a key sponsor of our event. Porchfest brings community together for a free music festival, which takes place each year on the front porches of an historic Grants Pass neighborhood. Attendees are encouraged to walk or bike the neighborhood, listen to a variety of local musicians, shop the craft booths and pick up lunch from one of many food vendors. This family-friendly, free, community-building event raises funds for multiple youth programs in our area. We couldn’t do this without the generous sponsorship of local businesses. Rogue Gateway Rotary, the club that puts on Porchfest Grants Pass, would like to say, once again, thank you Southern Oregon Subaru for sharing the love with the youth, music-lovers and community of Southern Oregon!
