Fresh Out of the Box - Mitc J

Nearly a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, Food Bank of the Rockies is redoubling our efforts to meet the increased need for food assistance in our communities. In 2020, we distributed over 100 million pounds of food which was a first in our 42-year history. Although this level of demand is unprecedented, we are committed to continuing to distribute food until everyone in our service region thrives. Food Bank of the Rockies is able to meet the increased need during the pandemic thanks to its generous partners like Subaru of America. The recent donation of 100 million meals to the Feeding America network through “The Subaru Love Promise” program helps food banks meet the challenges of food insecurity meet all people where and when they need us most. Together, we can truly make a difference. Community Story: Monica If you have visited our mobile pantry distribution site at Hinkley High School, Monica or one of her children has likely loaded your car with food. For the past five years, this Hunger Hero has helped nourish both her community and her family through volunteering. “And since the pandemic, we have been doing more and more,” Monica confessed. “They need more volunteers and more help.” On average, more than 200 families rely on the mobile pantry distribution site where Monica volunteers. “Some of them didn’t know what they were going to get, and they’re amazed when they see the meat or all the fruit they’re getting. Everyone is so grateful and happy. This is helping them a lot,” she observed. When times become challenging, Monica also leans into this community for food assistance and support. “I’m thankful to get some food for my kids, too.” Community Story: Jeanette “Money was short,” Jeanette disclosed. “Without [the mobile-pantry], we wouldn’t have been able to get food.” In March, just as the COVID-19 pandemic began to affect our community, Jeanette was injured from a fall. When her income was cut short, her household needed help to make ends meet. Facing food insecurity for the first time in years, Jeanette was unsure where to turn for assistance. Fortunately, she and her family heard about the Food Bank of the Rockies’ distribution in Morgan County. She, along with her partner Shane and dog Spuds, visited our special, holiday mobile-pantry the Sunday before Christmas. Food Bank of the Rockies wishes to thank Subaru of America for its unwavering support of food banks across the nation to help us all help our neighbors.

Determination and Dedication - Dominic's Story - Jocelyn K

When we met Dominic Scrivner, he was bald – his hair a victim of chemotherapy. Hair, however, was the least of his worries. Husband and father of 3 (plus 2 dogs!), he was 3 months into a battle with stage 3 testicular cancer and fighting for his life. Some dates from what Dominic called, “a whirlwind life-changing experience”: May 4: Dominic informed by his family doctor that his CT Scan indicated cancer May 7: Biopsy performed May 9: Biopsy results: Stage 3 testicular cancer. May 10: Surgery shortly thereafter Dominic embarked on a 4 cycle, 21 day-per-cycle chemotherapy protocol. In June he came across B Strong Ride on the internet. Moved by the work of the event’s beneficiaries, B Strong became Dominic’s mission, both: To raise funds to support the event's beneficiaries, as well as To ride - an audacious undertaking with chemo scheduled to end only 12 days before the ride. Nonetheless, Dominic went to work. He created a fundraising page and told his story, writing, “Hopefully, my final treatment is July 30th. This ride will without a doubt be difficult for me a mere 12 days after chemo, but I feel compelled to do what I can for the multitudes of people affected with cancer that need financial, spiritual and psychological support. The beneficiaries are the perfect organizations to supply these resources for people afflicted with cancer.” “Scans will be completed days after B Strong to determine the necessity of surgery or further treatment. As of today, my tumor markers are within normal ranges and tumors have had significant improvement. Thank God!” “compelled to do what I can”...again, this in the midst of fighting for his own life. That August, Dominic completed B Strong ride. It took everything he had to make it. From B Strong Ride Director Paul Balaguer: At the post-ride ceremony, I introduced Dominic to the crowd and told a small fraction of his story, acknowledging him as both the event’s highest personal donor as well as top fundraiser. I knew I would struggle to do this dry-eyed, and when I looked out and saw tears in Dominic’s eyes, I knew I was done for. I did my best to express our appreciation, knowing I lacked the words to communicate how truly grateful we were for all he had done when he was battling cancer as well. Then, in a moment that still warms my heart, the crowd rose to their feet in an ovation that lasted well over a minute – their appreciation for Dominic, who, amazingly, had personally raised over $20,000. Mike Shaw Subaru is a presenting sponsor of the B Strong On Demand.

Tee It Up for Dawg Nation - Dominic S

Dawg Nation Hockey Foundation is an amazing organization that we have come to know. By accessing the unique power and compassion of the hockey community, we celebrate life and provide help in times of need. The help they provide to such a diverse group of people is incredible. What started as an idea to honor a fallen friend and “make a difference” has blossomed into an important resource for families in need. Their motto is Play Hard. Play Fair. Give Back. Mike Shaw Subaru volunteered at over 20 games this year at Sled Hockey for the Women's Division. This event was a golf tournament fund raiser where Mike Shaw Subaru was the hole in 1 sponsor for Dawg Nation.

Creating Smiles and Transforming Lives! - Madison M

Mike Shaw Subaru Team, Thank you so much for supporting Make-A-Wish during the Share the Love campaign. Amy is a bright and artistic 18-year-old girl who has lymphoma. Her diagnosis hasn't affected her personality, nor has it taken away from her sense of ambition! Colorado gave her the opportunity to have a wish granted, she immediately envisioned herself taking on the city that never sleeps: New York! One of the most memorable moments was when Amy visited The Rink at Rockefeller Center. The ice skating staff shut down the rink so Amy and her father could enjoy skating together on open ice, which is something they loved to do before her illness. Your donation of $3,087.50 will stay here in Colorado and will help us continue to grant wishes to kids like Amy. We are so grateful for your team's support and the support of all of your customers. Best Wishes, Madison Montgomery

Mike Shaw Subaru & The LLS - Beth M

On July 9, 2018, Mike Shaw Subaru partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to work with the Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children and show their patients that their community wants to give back. The patient population at the Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children greatly benefitted from the blankets. While bringing the blankets to the Hospital, Jocelyn, a representative from Mike Shaw Subaru, and the Rocky Mountain Leukemia & Lymphoma Society team had the chance to see the direct impact the blankets have on the patients. During the delivery of the blankets, a young girl and her sister expressed great excitement about opening their “presents” and having their picture taken. The staff and patients were very appreciative of the donation and really enjoyed the delivery.

Where Love Meets Hope - Julie J

In an effort to make a positive impact on the health and wellness of our local community, Mike Shaw Subaru supported The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society during the Subaru Loves to Care Event in June. Every three minutes, one person in the United States is diagnosed with a blood cancer and Leukemia is the most common form of cancer in children. This year, Mike Shaw Subaru had the opportunity to partner with Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children in Thornton, CO. Throughout June, team members from Mike Shaw Subaru asked customers to share personal messages of hope with those fighting cancers and handed out a co-branded reusable tote bag in an effort to raise awareness. Mike Shaw Subaru is proud to support these children in our local community by donating and delivering these messages of hope as well as 80 blankets to cancer patients at Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children. Together, Mike Shaw Subaru and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society wish to spread hope, love, and warmth to those fighting cancer through the Subaru Loves to Care initiative.

Subaru & LLS Deliver Blankets to Cancer Patients - Beth M

Mike Shaw Subaru, in partnership with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, participated in a “Share the Love” campaign to help blood cancer patients at Rocky Mountain Cancer Center - Thornton. Team members from Subaru, LLS and RMCC - Thornton donated 80 warm, fuzzy blankets with care cards and messages of hope from the community. They also delivered 10 care kits to younger patients so the children could draw, do crafts and break away from hospital life. The program is a great way for LLS and Subaru to connect with local hospitals and help blood cancer patients. “It was a rewarding experience to be able to brighten the patients’ day and wrap them in love by providing the Subaru blankets! The cancer journey is tough, so to lift their spirits is a wonderful feeling,” LLS Sr. Campaign Director Beth Muehlethaler said.

Dear Mike Shaw Subaru, I'm writing to you today because I would personally like to say thank you for the donation you provided for Medical Day. Our Program was very blessed by this kind act of yours. The money that was given has been used in so many ways like field trips, iPads, supply. With the iPads we are able to further our learning experience something which I am thankful for. Also the field trips have also been a big part of this program and they wouldn't have been possible if it wasn't for your donation. We are more than blessed to have someone like yourself bless a program like Medical Day. So thank you so much once again. Yours Truly, Andrea Lara
