Paws on the Mountain Greyhound Rescue, Inc - Peter - Peter D

Paws on the Mountain is the new name for Greyhound Rescue, Inc. We have been participating with Wilkins Subaru in their Pet Adopt-a-Thon festival held for every year shortly after it began. We place retired racing greyhounds in their forever home. At these events Wilkins Subaru generously provided tables and chairs and plenty of space for these large dogs to set up inside the show room when it is hot outside. Wilkins Subaru went out of their way to make the dogs and owners comfortable. Wilkins Subaru contacts outside vendors to donate goods and each dog goes home with a bag of goodies. Wilkins Subaru successfully advertises in local newspapers and other media and attracted many people to come and visit the dogs. Over the years Paws on the Mountain got from 2 to 6 potential adopters at every event. Late last year Wilkins Subaru was a great help in obtaining from National Subaru a very generous money donation early this year which was greatly appreciated. This year the National Subaru promotion is with "Underdogs" or dogs with physical disabilities. Although the greyhounds are healthy we do get dogs that have been injured in the past. One such dog was "Caught Ya Lookin" who was heavily scarred om both sides of his body because he tried to escape and got caught in barbed wire. He is now happy and healthy. Other dogs just enjoy their new home such as "Rancho Blue Bayou" who likes to relax by burying himself in leave, We look forward to a continuing relationship with Wilkins Subaru and their generous support in the future.

Helping to make Summer Camp free for local youth - Jennifer L

Thanks to Wilkins Subaru, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County was able to offer a free seven week Summer Camp. Camp helped alleviate summer learning loss for youth and gave them access to mentors, life-changing programs, nutritious meals, field trips, and the chance to be kids again as we emerge from the pandemic. Boys & Girls Clubs play a powerful role in making summer a time for learning and developmental gains for youth, so providing camp for free this year was critical. We couldn't have done it without the ongoing support of Wilkins Subaru.

Paws on the Mountain Greyhound Rescue, Inc - Peter D

Paws on the Mountain is the new name for Greyhound Rescue, Inc. We have been participating with Wilkins Subaru in their Pet Adopt-a-Thon festival held for every year shortly after it began. Greyhounds are heat sensitive and require a temperature controlled environment if they are going to be at any event for a long period of time. Wilkins Subaru generously provided tables and chairs and plenty of space for these large dogs to set up inside the show room particularly when one year the outside temperature reached 100 deg. Wilkins Subaru went out of their way to make the dogs and owners comfortable. Wilkins Subaru contacted outside vendors to donate goods and each dog went home with a bag of goodies. The goal of these events is to spread the word about these wonderful dogs and get potential adopters to come in, meet the dogs and learn about them. Wilkins Subaru successfully advertised in local newspapers and other media and attracted many people to come and visit the dogs. Over the years Paws on the Mountain got from 2 to 6 potential adopters at every event. Because of Wilkins Subaru generosity the dogs were happy, well behaved and very glad to be there.

Subaru is "All In" for Youth - JENNIFER L

Thank you to Wilkins Subaru for supporting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County (BGCAA) and all of the amazing connections you’ve made with, and for, our newest Clubhouse in Glen Burnie, Maryland. The Subaru Share the Love Event has blossomed into a year-long partnership with direct and immediate impact on local youth. Wilkins Subaru not only chose BGCAA as their local charity for the Share the Love Campaign but donated books, games, legos, and backpacks to our newest Clubhouse on opening day in December, 2018. That was quickly followed by a donation of gently used hats, jackets and winter necessities for BGCAA members who were in need of warmer winter attire. BGCAA now feels like part of the Wilkins Subaru family and enjoyed a wonderful Pizza Party for Club staff and Club members during the “Share the Love” check presentation. Club members in turn did their own “Love Presentation” back to Wilkins Subaru, thanking them for their donation, pizza and hands-on support. Most recently Wilkins Subaru donated tickets to the National Aquarium to the Boys & Girls Club at Glen Burnie as a summer field trip. Thirteen Summer Campers, two BGCAA staffers, and one Wilkins Subaru team member enjoyed this special field trip that was made possible by Wilkins Subaru. Many of the campers had never been to the Aquarium before and are already wondering when they can go again. Thank you to Wilkins Subaru for opening up a new world to our Club kids. Thank you to everyone at Wilkins Subaru for making BGCAA part of your family and continually going above and beyond to support youth who “need us most” in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. With your help we can continue to inspire and enable ALL young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. Thank you for making GREAT FUTURES possible for local youth.

Subaru loves Service Dogs - Beth L

I am a disabled Veteran. In 2009 I was a Public Affairs Army Non Commisioned Officer serving in Egypt. I was struck in the back of the head by a light pole and suffered a career ending injury. Many years later I have a service dog in training named Alister. He was a rescue from West Virginia when he was taken into a loving foster home by a local rescue Canine Humane Network. I knew I wanted a rescue dog to be my service dog. When I began looking for a car to replace my current SUV I wanted to make sure the car company I chose exemplified my values. Helping rescue dogs just like Alister. I worked with Wilkins Subaru and couldn’t have been more impressed. Every step of the way the were honest and professional, even giving me pieces of information that saved me money. I couldn’t be prouder to drive a Subaru Crosstrek- I feel safe when driving and it has the perfect room for Alister and I. And I know that by supporting Subaru I am also supporting the many causes your company gives to. Thank you!

Wilkins Subaru teamed up with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Maryland Chapter to present 80 blankets and care cards to the Tate Cancer Center at the Baltimore Washington Medical Center to keep patients warm while undergoing treatment. Because Leukemia is the most common form of cancer in children, and 12 art and craft kits were presented for those kids in treatment. Of course, this would not have been possible without the support of our amazing and caring Wilkins Subaru customers. This gesture of warmth was presented by Sarah Fullerton, Product Specialist Manager, Wilkins Subaru joined by Sheronda Booker, Donor Development Director, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to Crystal Edwards, Executive Director, Tate Cancer Center, Dr. Cherif Boutros, Medical Director, Tate Cancer Center, and the Clinicians and Medical Team of BWMC’s Tate Cancer Center.
