Helping Homeless Pets at the Mary S. Roberts PAC - Molly S

Shout out to the amazing employees from DCH Subaru of Riverside who volunteered their time helping at the Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center Thrift Store. While at the store, they organized racks of clothing, rehomed misplaced merchandise, added donated items to the sales floor, and even treated the Thrift Store staff to some delicious muffins. Then they stopped by the Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center to drop off lots of donations (so many items, that they filled a Subaru). We are so grateful for the pet food for our Pet Food Assistance Program; we'll keep our adoptable pets busy with enrichment activities made from the chicken broth, applesauce, and treats you brought; and we can't wait to put the cinch-sacks, collars, leashes, and bandanas to use. Everyone from your dealership was so friendly and generous that we just couldn't let them leave without showing them around and sneaking in some puppy snuggles. From all of the staff, volunteers, and pets of the Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center, we thank you all so much!

A special wish to meet the Oakland Raiders - Maria Z

Make-a-Wish and DCH Subaru of Riverside granted Josiah a special wish to meet the Oakland Raiders. Josiah M., a special kid with a heart condition since birth wanted to meet the Oakland Raiders, his team that he never misses watching a game. After he flying to Oakland, he became an employee for a couple of days, spending time with the team and others within the organization. His favorite players are #52 Khalil Mack, and #4 Derek Carr. For gameday, Josiah got to be in the locker room and tell different players what he wanted them to do that day. Then he got to participate in the coin toss, team huddle and be on the sidelines during the game. The Raiders beat the Broncos 30-20 that day, and was the culmination of a fabulous wish granted.

Sharing the Love with Local Make-A-Wish Chapter - Maria Z

On Friday, December 16th, DCH Subaru of Riverside hosted a Share the Love event with the local chapter of Make-A-Wish of Orange County and the Inland Empire. Our volunteer Bryan Allen and I represented Make-A-Wish at the event. Years ago, Bryan’s son Adam Allen was diagnosed with a non-operative brain tumor and was a recipient of a granted “Make-A-Wish” that sent Adam to meet Green Bay Packer’s receiver Donald Driver, along with quarterback Aaron Rogers during his rookie season at a game at legendary Lambeau Field. Today, Adam is 22 years old, and has very fond memories of that day in Wisconsin. This granted Wish made such an impact that Adam along with his dad, sister and mom have become Make-A-Wish volunteers. Giving back to the charity that granted Adam his wonderful experience truly helped Adam in dealing with the operations, doctors and his recovery. We thank DCH Subaru of Riverside the opportunity to share Adam’s story, and the work that Make-A-Wish does on a local level like this. Thanks for bringing their customers and employees into our mission for children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

Girls help save the monarch butterfly - Jeffrey F

Monarch butterflies are in trouble. Over the last few decades, populations of these iconic orange and black butterflies have declined by over 90 percent. Like all butterflies, monarchs lay their eggs on select plants, called “host plants.” These are the only plants their caterpillars can eat, and for monarchs, milkweed is their only host plant. In an effort to make a difference for monarchs, Alyssa and Kaite took it upon themselves to reach out to their local neighborhood where, as recently as the early 1980's, had a rich history of agriculture and citrus fruit production. Today, a major of the portion of the neighborhood has transitioned from agriculture to suburban neighborhoods altering the region's landscape. After hearing about the Subaru Loves the Earth and the plight of the monarch butterfly at DCH Subaru of Riverside, the girls decided to go door to door delivering Butterfly Milkweed Seeds provided by DCH Subaru of Riverside. They urged the community to plant milkweed in their yard or garden in an effort to strengthen the ecosystem that monarchs rely on for survival. Katie asks, “Who wants to live in a world with no butterflies?” You can help be part of the solution too. Come to DCH Subaru of Riverside, where you can pick up a pack of Butterfly Milkweed Seeds to plant in your yard or garden.
