Together We Can Make a Difference - Kellie C

We are so thankful to have had Kristen, Ryan, and Dustin from Gerald Jones Subaru volunteer at the Augusta Dream Center. In just two hours we were able to distribute over 250 articles of clothing to people who might not otherwise have proper clothing. Thank you for your commitment to making a difference in our city!

Serve Day at The Augusta Dream Center - Kellie C

Charles and Kristen from Gerald Jones Subaru are awesome! They went above and beyond to serve the community by helping them find much-needed clothing items. Many of the people we serve are homeless or they are struggling to make ends meet and getting new clothing is not something they can afford. The clothes closet provides a boutique-like shopping experience for our guests at no cost. Charles and Kristen not only assisted with sorting and organizing clothing, but they provided a personal shopping experience to everyone who was in need.

Social Distancing for Share the Love! - Julianna S

It’s been another great year with Gerald Jones Subaru and the Augusta Canal National Heritage Area. Even with the new lifestyle of social distancing and face masks; this "new real" didn't stop us from finding a way to celebrate our "Share the Love" partnership for the second year in a row! Social media has become a HUGE tool for everyone in this time of COVID-19 and we took advantage of that. Gerald Jones Subaru and the Augusta Canal met on Instagram live for the check presentation back in May! A little background about our partnership: Gerald Jones Subaru has been a community partner with us since 2016. We combined our missions for the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service with the #FindYourPark Festival. This was the forerunner to a great annual event that we've renamed #CanalFEST with Gerald Jones Subaru as our Presenting Sponsor. As the “Share the Love” Hometown Charity, this past November and December, with each car purchased, Subaru donated $250 and Gerald Jones Subaru donated an additional $50 per vehicle to the Augusta Canal. As a result, the community and Gerald Jones Subaru raised over $8,000 for the Augusta Canal. A percentage of the money raised will be combined with a grant from the CSRA Community Foundation in hopes of bringing all 5th graders in Richmond County for a field trip this fall. We did this same project last year and it was a great success! In 2019, the canal used $5,252 of the “Share the Love” funds to bring over 1,500 5th grade students on a field trip. These trips included a tour of the Discovery Center and taking a Petersburg boat ride. Although CanalFEST has been postponed this year, due to the new COVID-19 social distancing regulations, we hope to bring back Gerald Jones Subaru as Presenting Sponsor in 2021. The canal also participated in Subaru’s Terecycle recycling program. We had the entire Enterprise Mill building collecting K-cups to recycle. These were then sent back to Subaru to build environmentally friendly trail furniture. As you can see, this partnership with Gerald Jones Subaru has proven to be a great success in helping our community! The Augusta Canal hopes it continues for many years to come!

Thank you from Project Linus! - Christine N

A great big shout out and thank you for Gerald Jones Subaru for helping the Augusta area chapter of Project Linus deliver blankets to children in need!!! The Project Linus mission is to provide security through blankets, but those blankets take up a lot of room in car. Twice this year Gerald Jones Subaru provided transportation and extra hands to help deliver 290 blankets to the Augusta Dream Center. Your caring and support for our community helped so many children. Thank you so very much!

Juicy Read at Lamar-Milledge Elementary - Alexandria D

Oh what a wonderful time we had with Subaru's team. Mr. Charles Beasley, Subaru’s General Manager came and read “What do they do with all that Poo?” By Jane Kurtz to 1st through 3rd grade while they drank juice. The kids absolutely love it. During his visit he stopped by the cafeteria where our 5th graders were finishing up their lunch. He had them on their feet and chanting. They were so excited and motivated when they left. We want him to come back. Each student were given inspirational book marks that they can use when reading. Subaru also donated 150 books to Lamar-Milledge media center. These books are aligned with our science curriculum. We are so grateful and we welcome you anytime. Thanks Subaru! https://www.wfxg.com/2019/10/09/gerald-jones-subaru-donates-books-local-elementary-school/

Make a Dog’s Day - Andy A

Subaru is proud to establish the first-ever National Make A Dog’s Day October 22nd. As part of Subaru Loves Pets month, we’re inviting all dog lovers to do something extra special for their furry best friends. Plus, Subaru will be focusing our efforts on helping the hardest-to-adopt shelter Dogs –those with special needs-find homes. Get ready to fall in love withThe Underdogs. #MakeADogsDay Meet Gabi! Gabi has been at the Humane Society of NWGA (Northwest Georgia) for seven years. If you asked the volunteers to pick their favorite animal at the shelter, Gabi would win hands down. She does not do well with dogs or cats so must be the only animal in an adult only family. She loves people and will bond very quickly to you. Gabi would make someone a great companion. She is waiting patiently for her forever home. If you have room in your heart and your home for this sweet girl then please fill out an adoption application, highlight and right click this link: https://hsnwga.org/adoption/application-for-adoption/?fbclid=IwAR2Ie18p6U3ryKi-niIuIZFTd-waD98xrySl7IJmiRBXE239WP7dpODubiU #MakeADogsDay #SubaruLovesPets #TheUnderdogs

Subaru Loves Dream Academy - Fancy P

Dream Academy is a non-profit after-school program that serves 40 kids from Euchee Creek Elementary School and North Harlem Elementary School. When Gerald Jones Subaru heard that we were in desperate need of snack foods for our after-school program, they showed up and showed out! Kristen McDowell spent an afternoon loving on our kids and getting to know them personally and genuinely took an interest in them! Then the icing on the cake was when she let them sit in the Subaru Outback! I don't think there are any words to express their excitement of seeing that beautiful shiny new car! Gerald Jones Subaru has an uncanny ability to make you feel like you are a part of their family and they never hesitate to meet a need when they hear of one! They honestly exemplify everything it means to be community driven with a spirit to give back! Our kids are so excited that they can now form a relationship with GJ Subaru and can't wait to invite them to their Dream Academy Restaurant!
