Subaru Makes 12th Annual Toy Store Possible - Karen H

The Andrew L. Hicks, Jr. Foundation has been hosting a Toy Store for 500 Chester children every December for the past 12 years. Rafferty Subaru's tremendous gift to the Foundation has enabled us to continue this long-standing tradition and even expand it in 2021 to include a Day of Festivities for the children and their families. The elementary school age children are invited based on their families' needs, as identified by their school social workers. The children arrive at the grand Toy Store with eyes wide open and eagerly enter to participate in various activities such as Cookies and Hot Chocolate with Mrs. Clause, photos with Santa, Christmas Story Readings, Arts and Crafts, Letters to Santa, Christmas Card Making, a Coat Give Away, a Bicycle Raffle with over 75 new bicycles, live Christmas music, a 360 degree photo booth and more. No one leave the Toy Store without a bag full of new, wrapped Christmas toys that have been chosen specifically for that child. This event is a great blessing to many families who are struggling with challenges such as unemployment, a family health crisis, housing insecurity, and a host of other issues. Subaru's generosity allows the Foundation, along with 250 volunteers to prepare for the Toy Store, and to gather almost 4,000 gifts for the event. We are so thankful for the partner we have in Rafferty Subaru and look forward to a great relationship for years to come!

French Fry saves two lives - Justina C

Providence Animal Center (PAC) is proud to partner with Rafferty Subaru for ongoing sponsored fee adoption events. At our most recent event, on Oct. 2, during Subaru's Love Pets initiative, an adorable little dog named French Fry was adopted by a woman and her grandson. French Fry was saved by PAC from Philadelphia's overcrowded shelter, and arrived at PAC for a second chance at life, after being discarded by her previous family. Doreen had spent 40 years without a dog - it took her that long to heal from the heartbreak of the loss of her previous dog, Rascal. After her husband and daughter both passed away within years of each other, Doreen, left to care for her daughter's son, was seeking fulfilment in her life, and healing from so much pain. French Fry was just that. It was love at first sight for Doreen and her grandson, who were first in line at the Rafferty Subaru adoption event. French Fry quickly made herself at home - on her mom's chest - and is a constant companion for both Doreen and her grandson.

Holiday Partnership! - JOHN C

In 2018 we launched the Greenhouse Project in Chester seeking long term transformation of individuals, families and communities. Our simple approach is to live side by side with the people struggling in order to create a lasting impact. We seek help to break cycles of addiction, abuse and poverty while rebuilding families. But we cannot do this alone, we needed real partners to step to the plate. The Rafferty Family has been there since the beginning to help offer advice and support. Recently in November of 2020, Rafferty Subaru patterned by donating blankets for our Thanksgiving Food outreach. Not only were we able to help families with food, but help those in need with warm blankets. We are so blessed by Rafferty Subaru and their family’s values, in seeking to help those struggling in local communities. Can't wait to share all the stories of transformation. Thank you for partnering with us!

19 adoptions - including Beauty - despite COVID-19 - Justina C

Every year, Providence Animal Center (PAC), based in Media, PA, hosts adoption events at Rafferty Subaru in Newtown Square, PA. Every year, pet lovers stop by the showroom to meet furry friends. But 2020 proved to be different. How could we have a successful event in a pandemic? Where there's a will, there's a way! Adoptions were pre-booked and no walk-ups were allowed. Masks were required along with 6-foot distancing. Half of the event took place outside, in a covered, heated area. Both the indoor and outdoor locations for the event had a select number of people allowed at any given time. Not only were we able to host a successful adoption event on Oct. 17, we hosted the MOST successful adoption event in PAC-Rafferty event history: in three hours, 19 pets found forever homes, including a 6-month-old puppy named Beauty who was often overlooked in the shelter. A month later, we received the most wonderful happy 'tail' from Beauty's new mom, Jacqueline, who told PAC: "My little "Beauty" was adopted from the Rafferty Subaru Adoption Event. I changed her name to Dottie. She is just wonderful, my best friend, my sweet little baby. Thank you guys at Providence for all the wonderful care you give to all animals." Enclosed, find pictures of Beauty on her adoption day and happy with her forever mom, enjoying daily adventures.

As the president of the local Highland Park Kirklyn Association we are always looking for businesses to partner with us to help our neighbors in needs. In November Rafferty Subaru has worked with our group to get coats to children in need. Rafferty also donated books for the children which uplifted the children to own their own story books. In December Rafferty Subaru employees created a toy drive where children who were then treated to a brunch with Santa. Each child received the toy of their choice plus a warm meal, games and face painting. As a neighborhood civic group donors are so important and Rafferty Subaru is one business we can count on. Bob Rafferty. Kevin and Bobby Rafferty are always ready to help out those in need. In addition to these events for children, Rafferty has helped our group reach out to homeless veterans by donating items to fill backpacks with items such as shampoo, tissues and other personal items.

For Bob Rafferty, Rafferty Subaru General Manager, Subaru’s Love to Care mission was personal, as his sister is a blood cancer survivor. Both of them along with LLS staff and Paoli Hospital personnel shared the joy of helping cancer treatment patients.
