Tri City supports Veterans - Paul A

This Fall, our veteran's American Legion Post 79 was looking for more ways to help veterans in our community. Front and center in that endeavor was Tri City Subaru in Somersworth, NH. Not only did they become a prime supporter of our first annual Golf Outing by offering a vehicle for a hole in one, but they also joined as players, backers and benefactors as well. The tournament was the single most successful one at the golf course they ever had. As we were working with them on the golf outing, they suggested that we be the the organization to benefit from their planned 5k Run for veterans. Their cooperation, spirit and eager organizational skills made the day a huge success and raised over $23,000 for area veterans and veteran's causes. Plus there is more to come. The people at Tri City are both amazing and dedicated to our community and we are so pleased by the way they stood up for veterans and truly became a huge benefactor in our towns.

Subaru Love Promise Story- Mary's Dogs Rescue & Adoption - Kelly G

Nov 15, 2022 Dear Subaru. During the month of October 2022, Mary’s Dogs Rescue & Adoption of Northwood NH had the privilege of partnering with Exeter Subaru in Exeter NH and their wonderful staff. Lauren Parks was the point person and she clearly has a passion for our dogs and helping us find their forever homes. We are a non-profit dog rescue and adoption organization relying heavily on donations and volunteers. The exposure that Exeter Subaru gave us on their Facebook page, website and in the showroom was incredible. We brought adoptable dogs to the dealership once a week for the month of October. This allowed the public to come meet them and get to know our staff and fosters. Over the 4 weekly events, 13 dogs attended and several of them got adopted! One of the pups had approved adopters interested in meeting her and it was through the Subaru meet n greet event that they fell in love! Her name is Blaze and she and her sister traveled all the way from Arkansas to be adopted to a loving family here in New England. She and sister Bren had a rough start in life, an unwanted litter abandoned and left to fend for themselves on the side of the road. A southern rescue group took them in and nursed their neglected little bodies back to health. When they arrived here in NH, they were scared and very shy and timid. They needed time to trust us and feel safe, we worked with them and earned their trust so that they could be successful in a home. Blaze’s family reports that she is thriving and is just the sweetest, smartest and most amazing dog. Blaze’s new family with out help has been able to connect with Bren’s adoptive family and the sisters have playdates regularly! Thanks to Exeter Subaru in Exeter, NH and their Subaru Loves Pets program, little Miss Blaze found her forever home and will only know love and security for the rest of her life. Attached is a picture of Blaze. We thank Subaru for the continued support you have provided over the years to rescue organizations across the US and especially Mary’s Dog Rescue and Adoption! (Please note, per their request, we are unable to share any pictures that include the adopters nor their names. There are past issues involving a stalking incident and legal recourse and we wish to respect their privacy. Please accept these pictures of Blaze: heading to the Subaru event with out Foster Coordinator, playing at Subaru of Exeter during the event and having a play date following her adoption with her sister Bren!)

Kids Get Outside! - Sh P

Tri-City Subaru Loves Learning and recently supported a local school's outdoor learning program called TimberNook. This is the first year the Seacoast Charter School out of Dover has partnered with TimberNook. TimberNook "provides nature-based, child-led play experiences that challenge the senses and inspire creativity, independence, and imagination in the great outdoors." All students kindergarten through 8th grade get extended outside time in creative settings to explore, build and work together. Tri-City Subaru donated tires and other supplies to give the students materials to work with and Tri-City followed up with a volunteer day to help clean up the forested areas and build a bridge. Cheers to the Seacoast Charter School and their new TimberNook partnership and getting kids outside! Enjoy!

Tri-City Subaru is always there for MSNE students! - Amanda M

It is not an exaggeration to say that the team at Tri-CIty Subaru is ALWAYS there for the students of the Monarch School of New England. From hosting Vocational Program students for community-based instruction, to participating in MSNE's annual golf event, to bringing vehicles to campus for a Touch a Truck event - whatever MSNE asks for support with - Tri-City Subaru is there. And amazingly, for FIVE years in a row now, Tri-City Subaru and their community has "Stuffed a Subaru" full of school supplies to help MSNE's teachers and students have everything needed to start the school year off on the right foot. This annual event is part of their Subaru Loves Learning initiative and is a tremendous support to the school. MSNE is a nonprofit, specialized, day school for students ages 5-22 with significant disabilities. As a nonprofit school, community partnerships are essential. Community partners provide resources, support and opportunities to help ensure that students with special needs can grow to reach their greatest potential. Tri-City Subaru continues to demonstrate that they believe in our students' potential, and helps to support the work that we do. Working together, we are creating unlimited possibilities for students with special needs. Thank you so much!

The Great Garlic Mustard Pull - David J

SELT's awesome Tri-City Subaru friends (and their families) came down to our new home at Burley Farms in Epping, NH for a full day of hugely helpful forest floor management. The Tri-City team unleashed their volunteer horsepower to pull the invasive weed, garlic mustard, which is a particularly aggressive plant that can choke out an understory (the layer of vegetation beneath the main canopy of a forest) and negatively impact a forest's health. This type of volunteer activity, in conjunction with the always-impactful Share the Love Campaign, adds up to a tremendous positive influence on SELT's mission to save, share, and steward the lands we all love!

Teachers lunch delivery from Tri-City Subaru - Elizabeth C

From our team to yours, THANK YOU! For some, it was the receiving of an unanticipated gift. For others, it was the act of service – the knowing they didn’t need to make a lunch for the next day. For others it was the extra incentive to stop in the midst of a busy season to share a meal with a colleague. For some it was the acknowledgement and affirmation that our work is noticed by others in our community. For each of us, it was an unexpected act of kindness that brought us encouragement and connected our team to your team with appreciation and gratitude. Thank you for the delicious meal and all that it meant to each of us. Sincerely, Team Idlehurst.

Tri-City Subaru Helps Home Fire Victims - Shannon M

Every day, hundreds of families are devastated by home fires and other disasters that strip them of their essentials—shelter, food, and warmth. In New Hampshire, the American Red Cross responds to these disasters, most commonly a home fire, every 17 hours. Driven by our humanitarian mission, our volunteers meet survivors immediately after a fire- often finding a family grieving the loss of their home, belongings, and sense of security -- sometimes with the only clothes on their backs. Survivors are in a state of shock—unsure of what to do or where to go. Our Teams work side-by-side with families until their needs have been met. Preventing and alleviating human suffering in the face of emergencies is the vital mission of the American Red Cross, and home fires are the most frequent type of disaster we respond to in the state of New Hampshire. We also deliver critical fire safety and prevention tools and information to families and communities, helping to prevent more needless losses. During the month of March – also Red Cross Month – Tri-City Subaru stepped up in a big way to help support our work and home fire clients with a campaign. For each car sold in March, Tri-City donated $25 to the Red Cross and ended the month with a total of $5,745. With this gift from Tri-City Subaru, we will be able to provide direct financial assistance to 9 families. On average, the Red Cross provides $605 in financial assistance to each household impacted by a home fire, but we tailor assistance amounts to family size and livability of the home. Financial assistance is crucial in the immediate aftermath of a home fire when families may lack emergency funds or cannot immediately activate their insurance. This financial assistance empowers clients with the means to purchase what they most need – an important first step toward their longer-term recovery. This partnership with Tri-City Subaru enables the Red Cross to provide critical services to people throughout the Granite State who have been impacted by home fires, along with the lifesaving tools and information to support home fire prevention efforts. The American Red Cross provides all emergency relief services free to residents, and we do not receive annual federal funding. Thank you, Tri-City Subaru, for joining us in saving lives, reducing injuries, and preventing needless losses due to home fires. This gift will help us continue our critical work and keep our lifesaving promise in The Granite State. Because of our partners, the Red Cross assisted Granite Staters in the following ways last year: · Responded to 329 home fires. · Provided support to 142 families affected by a home fire or other disaster. · Provided over $200,000 in Financial Aid to home fire and disaster victims. · Trained over 1,100 youth throughout NH in Emergency Preparedness

Daisy and her Nine Puppies - Deborah S

Each animal receives an intake examination that includes updating their vaccinations, giving them preventative treatments for heartworm and also for fleas and ticks and spaying or neutering them. For cats the cost is $100 and for dogs it is $200. Every animal is different, and some will only need the basic intake exam while others need significantly more care which can be very expensive which may include dental procedures, surgery, drug treatment to control seizures, or special food to control allergies before they can be adopted. One dog that needed extra care was Daisy. Her story is below. Daisy and Sadie were surrendered together in late December. They were given their intake exams and it was determined that Daisy was pregnant! We immediately scrambled and got her into a foster home so she could destress and get ready to have her puppies. Sadie was able to be put up for adoption and found her new home right away. After being in foster for a few weeks Daisy gave birth to 9 healthy puppies! We had to purchase puppy food and make sure Daisy was fed the right diet to have the energy to feed and care for her puppies. The puppies will be available for adoption in late February and Daisy will be once she is spayed.
