Anchor Subaru Sponsors 12 RISPCA Adoptable Dogs! - Stephanie V

Last October the Rhode Island SPCA joined Anchor Subaru to celebrate Subaru Loves Pets®. During this month-long event, Subaru also honors "underdogs" especially on National Make a Dog's Day. This year, Anchor Subaru honored not one, but 12, underdogs at the RISPCA by sponsoring the adoption fees for 12 of our longest kennel residents. We are so happy to announce that on April 26, 2023 our last Anchor sponsored dog, Brooklyn, was adopted by her forever family! Brooklyn came to us on June 10, 2022. She had five puppies while in our care (all were quickly adopted), we spayed her, but then struggled to find her a home. However, she quickly became a staff and volunteer favorite and we patiently waited for her "persons" to find her. Ten months later they did! We want to say Thank You to Anchor Subaru for supporting Brooklyn and all of our underdogs! Adoption fees can be a hurdle for some potential adopters so thanks to Anchor we were able to remove that road block getting these dogs one step closer to their forever homes!

The Northern Rhode Island Food Pantry - RICHARD T

The team at Anchor Subaru has always been known for its generosity and commitment to the community. This year, Anchor Subaru chose the Northern Rhode Island Food Pantry as one of the recipients of the annual Subaru Share the Love® Event. The Northern Rhode Island Food Pantry, a 501(c)3 all-volunteer run pantry, was thrilled to be a part of this event. The Anchor Subaru team worked tirelessly to promote the Share the Love initiative, spreading the word through their social media channels, the newspaper and radio stations. For every customer who purchased or leased a new Subaru during the campaign period, Subaru donated $250 to this hometown charity. By the end of the campaign, the Anchor Subaru team was proud to announce that they would be donating an amazing $50,000 for the food pantry. This was a significant achievement, and it meant that the Northern Rhode Island Food Pantry would be able to extend the life of its additional monthly food distribution program. The food pantry team was overjoyed with the results of the campaign. They had been challenged to keep up with the increasing demand for their services, and the additional funds would make a significant impact on their ability to help those in need. The money raised will be used to purchase essential food items to be distributed to families in our community. Many Rhode Island residents have been struggling with food insecurity, and the Northern Rhode Island Food Pantry's efforts are more important than ever. The success of the Share the Love campaign showed the power of community and highlighted the importance of coming together to support those in need. In the end, the partnership between Anchor Subaru and the Northern Rhode Island Food Pantry was a success story that highlighted the importance of corporate social responsibility and community engagement. The funds raised would allow the food pantry to continue to provide essential services to those in need, and the partnership between the two organizations would continue to make a positive impact on the community for years to come.

Keeping our neighbors in need warm through Subaru Loves to Help® - Rachel S

We are so grateful to our friends at Anchor Subaru who donated over 1,000 pairs of socks to Crossroads for the men, women and children we serve. This donation was made possible through the Subaru Loves to Help initiative. Through their campaign, Subaru and its retailers donated 500,000 pairs of new socks to adults and children in need. This effort can truly have an enormous impact by providing comfort and helping maintain the health of those who are experiencing homelessness. Thank you, Anchor Subaru! We are so appreciative of your partnership and commitment to helping those in need.

The Rhode Island SPCA LOVES Anchor Subaru - Stephanie V

Anchor Subaru is one of our biggest supporters especially during Subaru Loves Pets month. This year we had 12 dogs we considered to be “underdogs” because even after several months of promotion, none of the dogs were adopted. During Subaru Loves pets month, Anchor decided to sponsor all 12 of these “underdogs” by covering their adoption fees. In addition, they gave Subaru bandanas to all of our dogs and provided Subaru bark boxes to go home with each “underdog.” Unfortunately, only one “underdog” was adopted during October. Hearing this, Anchor Subaru decided to extend their support of these dogs until the end of the year. As of today, only three “underdogs” have found their forever homes while the other nine continue to wait patiently here at the shelter. The very first “underdog” to be adopted with our little Iggy. Iggy came to us at eight months old with only three legs. One of our volunteers took him to an adoption event for special needs dogs where his new owners fell in love with him. They were so happy when they learned Anchor Subaru was covering his adoption fees. Iggy is now very spoiled in his new home and even loves his kitty siblings. Thank you Anchor Subaru for loving all pets!

Claribel's Story - Ric W

Thanks to the generosity of Anchor Subaru, Crossroads can work with clients like Claribel, a vibrant mother of six who came to Crossroads' Family Center after her landlord sold her family's home and they had nowhere else to turn. Through hard work and perseverance, and with the help of our Crossroads staff, Claribel and her family were able to find housing and settle into a safe and affordable place to call their own. Today, Claribel helps Rhode Islanders experiencing homelessness, through a job placement with AmeriCorps, and pursues her GED so she can attain a degree in human services. Claribel is a tremendous example of strength, resiliency, and hope, which we see in so many of the clients we serve as they work to overcome their homelessness. The support Crossroads receives through the Share the Love campaign will help many others like Claribel to achieve safe and stable housing.

Donated grabbers aid in town clean up event - Scott H

My name is Scott Hawes, I am part of the organizing committee for North Smithfield Clean & Green Day. For 20 years now our organization has been putting together town clean up events to remove litter from roadsides all over North Smithfield. Typically our feature event is held in late April and sometimes an additional smaller scale cleanup in the fall. This January, Gladimir Guerrier reached out to me about our needs for the event and how Anchor Subaru could assist us. The committee decided that adding trash grabbers to our event was always something we would have liked to do, but funding the purchase proved challenging. Working with Gladimir was very easy due to his excellent communication skills and positive can do attitude. Gladimir got all of our info together and in coordination with owner, Brian Benoit, they approved donating the funds to purchase 100 of these tools to assist our volunteers. Our event was held April 23rd and we had a great turnout of over 200 volunteers. Many chose to sign out a trash grabber to assist them in their cleaning. The grabbers provide a safer way to collect debris as it creates a separation between person and trash. Grabbers also make the job easier with less bending, which lends to longer cleaning times for our volunteers and much easier on backs! We had a great weather day and filled a 30 yard dumpster by the end of the event that afternoon. The committee heard many positive comments regarding the helpfulness and quality of the newly added trash grabbers. On behalf of our organization and the entire town, I would like to thank you for your very generous donation this year and hope to continue working with you in the future. Thank you Anchor Subaru!

Paxton the Underdog - Stephanie V

When we think about an Underdog, we don’t think of a dog that is less than, or “broken.” We think of a dog that needs a little extra understanding, support and time. That is exactly what Paxton needed to succeed. Being a young, anxious hound in a loud, forever changing setting is unsettling and hard to adapt to. With time and patience, Paxton went from a shy wall-flower, to a spunky, frolicking boy who couldn’t get enough of the outdoors and other dogs. This is perfect, since his new family has another dog, and his mom is VERY active and even works in a barn! To those who have watched his journey with us, we thank you for your support. We especially thank Anchor Subaru for sponsoring Paxton during their Subaru Loves Pets Campaign. Anchor Subaru graciously committed to paying for Paxton's adoption fee as well as his post adoption medicine and training for 2 months. Paxton will receive 7 sessions of training with Handsome Dan's Rescue. The adopter was so excited to learn that the adoption fee was covered that she exclaimed, "well, now I have extra money to spend on Paxton in other ways!" Thank you Anchor Subaru for truly loving all pets!

Sharing the Love on two wheels with 1PVD Cycling - Edward R

2020-21 has been an amazing year for 1PVD Cycling and we continue to owe much of our success to Anchor Subaru. Several years ago we started a competitive cycling program for inner-city youth in Providence. Our goal was to provide all the equipment, training, transportation, and expertise to put public high school students in Providence, RI, into a sport they would otherwise never have the chance to experience. For the second time in 4 years Anchor Subaru made a large donation that allowed us to purchase new uniforms. It is difficult to express the impact this has on our young competitors. 1PVD races against other youth and adults, some wealthy and professionally ranked, and without a uniform the group wouldn’t feel as cohesive or competition-ready. With our beautiful new 1PVD jerseys, we are definitely a team, and a powerful one. Our team members are drawn from schools all over the city, and the uniforms help them develop a fellowship that would not be possible otherwise. We are proud of our non-profit’s capacity to build bridges, nurture confidence, open new worlds for young people, not to mention the number of podiums they overcome. We simply could not do it without the Love and Promise of places like Anchor Subaru. Thank you!
