Outpouring of Love! - Kay J

The list of how the Shaw and Subaru Share the Love® donation has allowed for program enhancement and improvement is lengthy. Some of the highlights are listed below. Medical Day Treatment (MDT) primarily serves an at risk, underserved patient population. These children and their families face many psychosocial stressors including single parenting, homelessness, and poverty. Dealing with these stressors becomes even more complicated when raising a child with a chronic or life limiting illness. The ongoing generosity of the Shaw Subaru organization has aided MDT in improving the quality of life for not only our patients but their families as well. The donated dollars have gone toward upgrading technology, new curriculums for both classrooms, prizes for student recognition, materials for individual and group therapy, funds for community outings, purchasing patient medications along with gift cards for food and gasoline, and a wheelchair van that has room for three wheelchairs. Children’s Hospital Colorado and the staff at Medical Day Treatment are so grateful to the Shaw organization. Our clinic would not be the same place without their ongoing generosity and support! Thank you all for keeping our kids in your hearts and supporting our work.

Putting Hammers to Nails for Veterans - Miguel V

Recently, the team at Asbury Cares / Mike Shaw Subaru volunteered their time to help Veterans Community Project (VCP), a 501c3 founded by combat Veterans dedicated to ending Veteran homelessness. VCP provides wrap-around services to Veterans in need: providing support for long-term housing stability, helping to navigate other eligible Veteran support services, getting connected to community resources, and more. In addition, VCP has developed an innovative program of pairing homeless Veterans to intensive case-management services while residing in transitional tiny homes at the VCP Village. The VCP Village (located in Longmont, CO) is home to 26 transitional tiny homes and a 3,000 sq ft Community Center. At the Village, Veterans will get one-on-one case management to identify and overcome their barriers to housing. Once stable and on their feet, the Veteran will then transition out of the tiny home into their own permanent residence, with case managers aiding them every step of the way. Mike Shaw Subaru’s team put hammers to nails, helping to frame, put siding, and paint the tiny homes at the village! The team donated ~100 hours of time towards the construction of the VCP Village. By 4th quarter 2023, a homeless Veteran will have a roof over their head, thanks in part to the time offered by the Mike Shaw Subaru team. VCP Is grateful to the Asbury Cares team for showing their support to our community’s Veterans!

10 Out Of 10 - Dave S

Came to Mike Shaw Subaru to test drive a car of which we acquired details online. My son, wife, and myself were met in the lot by Nathan Hancock. Nathan's character and presentation of whom he is was professional to the highest level in my opinion. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable with all the makes and models of each vehicle we inquired about. Honesty is valued highly for me when purchasing a car. He checked that box and earned my time and business. Throughout the entire experience Nathan exhibited so many traits and qualities you hope for and desire in car sales. Nathan, Thank you...Thank you for your kind persona and your patience with us. You created a fun and easy going atmosphere throughout our visit and purchase of my son's vehicle. You worked a great deal for Blake. I would look at Mike Shaw Subaru in the future for another used car, and I would ask directly to have Nathan do the work again. You get a 10 out of 10 rating from me; Nathan.

Living the Subaru Slogan - Eddy O

"Love is what makes a Subaru, a Subaru" to the outside may seem like a cliché tag line for a big brand, but for Sam Warren at Mike Shaw Subaru, that is his calling. We have worked with Sam twice now, the first time we came in to help sell my mother in laws Ascent. She had decided to give up driving due to her eyesight, Sam immediately connected with her journey and shared so much empathy with her. He was able to get us a great price on the sale, and helped make the process and the bank payoff so quick and easy. Since Sam was an amazing help, my wife and I decided to return to work with Sam to order a new car for her. He was so great and knowledgeable about the differences from her existing Subaru to the new one. The car ordering/reservation process was easy and straightforward, the hard part is the wait for it to arrive! 10/10 recommend Mike Shaw Subaru and Sam Warren. Thank you for being more than just a car dealership!

Brad the Underdog Comes Out on Top! - Kelley L

Through our partnership with Mike Shaw Subaru in Thornton, CO, 2 Blondes All Breed Rescue hosted a meet and greet event on 10/30/2022, complete with costume contest and prizes (graciously provided by Mike Shaw Subaru)! During this event, we made several introductions that resulted in some amazing adoptions, not the least of which was Brad, a Subaru Underdog! Thanks to Jeff Lombardo and his staff at Mike Shaw Subaru, a combined 70 dogs were placed into loving and permanent homes during the month of October! Important to highlight were the SUBARU UNDERDOGS highlighted for the Month of October, which resulted in the adoption of SEVEN senior pets, TWO deaf pets and ONE amputee superstar! Here is the Story of Brad Pit - The Underdog that Came Out on Top! Brad had the odds stacked against him. Size (70lbs), Age (5), Breed (Staffordshire Terrier), Location (Urban, overcrowded shelter in Houston, TX). Time was not Brad's friend while he was in the shelter. As the days, hours and minutes that ticked by brought Brad closer to the dreaded euthanasia list, Brad remained blissfully unaware of his final countdown. But as more than one lady has said, there was just something about Brad Pit... Something that made our rescue want to take a chance on him. Brad is most handsome, but even in pictures, his personality just shined through; he has a smile that literally takes up an entire half of his block head! He is eager to please and friendly to all he meets. When our rescue committed to taking Brad, we marveled at what we interpreted as his "calm" demeanor as he could force himself to relax in even the most stressful of situations and sleep through almost anything (or so it appeared). When Brad finally arrived at our rescue in Denver, we quickly learned that Brad could sleep through anything because Brad couldn't hear anything! Our happy-go-lucky, 70lb lap dog was indeed, deaf! We knew that in order for Brad to be a successful adoption candidate, we would need to teach him basic obedience. And in order to teach him basic obedience, we would need to be able to communicate with him (first) - and what better way to communicate than through sign language. So off Brad went to the Prison-Trained K9 Program! Brad was an amazingly quick study and so eager to learn and please - we were amazed! Within four short weeks, Brad became a star student and completed the program, ready to become a member of someone's family as an ambassador of his breed! Brad was a rock star at the 10/30/2022 Meet and Greet at Mike Shaw Subaru in Thornton! He did so well in fact, that he caught his new mother's eye and heart and became her permanent sidekick shortly thereafter!
