Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy.

A partner since 2008, Subaru has donated over $28 million to the ASPCA and through Subaru Loves Pets has helped support the rescue, transport, adoption and well-being of over 230,000 animals across the country. 


Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.

Since 2018, Subaru has partnered with TerraCycle.  Participating Subaru retailers collect hard-to-recycle trash that was headed to local landfills. We collect approximately 2 tons of this hard-to-recycle trash monthly, which will be converted to furnishings and other usable items and donated locally.


It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.

Since 2015 Subaru, in partnership with the American Association for the Advancement Science, donated over 277,600 award-winning science books.  In addition, through our partnerships with Staples and we supported teachers and students with donations of S400,000 in gift cards and school supplies. 


In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.

In 2020, Subaru and its retailers made a donation to Feeding America to provide 50 million meals to help feed people in need during the COVID-19 crisis,* making meals available at 199 local food banks across the country.
*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks. 


We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.

Since 2016, Subaru and its retailers have partnered with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to donate over 167,000 blankets and 21,500 arts & crafts kits and reached nearly 150,000 patients in more than 780 hospitals nationwide. 

How is Classic Subaru of Atlanta dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve it as well.

Classic Subaru of Atlanta soaring into action.  –  James S

An early start to a great day! Jan 20th 2020, Quinton Manston joined forces with Angel Flight Soars to get a young man in need of medical care across the state! Quinton is always eager to donate his time, plane and skills as a pilot to assist. Classic Subaru is proud to support Angel Flight Soars. Have questions about Angel Flight or want to know how you can help? Simply stop into Classic Subaru of Atlanta and ask for more details. Classic Subaru loves to care! What a great way to combine a love of flying with a passion for helping! ANGEL FLIGHT SOARS is the original volunteer pilot organization serving those who reside in, are travelling to or through the states of: • Georgia • Alabama • Mississippi • Tennessee • North Carolina • South Carolina We also have angels throughout the country to work with when needs extend beyond this region.Our missions include: routine treatment flights, compassionate care, and other medical-related flights as referred to us by health care providers. The ANGEL FLIGHT SOARS philosophy is that the cost of travel should never stand in the way of people receiving medical care.

Cameron's Birthday Celebration  –  Katie S

In 2018, just before starting kindergarten at Landmark Christian School, five-year-old Cameron Ward was diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma. His treatment required six months of chemotherapy, which meant several hospitalizations and many frightening, uncomfortable hours of treatment. When Cameron would get scared or homesick for his four older siblings, his mother, Erika, would show him videos to distract and entertain him. One of those videos was watching people swimming with pigs at Pig Island in the Bahamas. It was the first time Cameron’s mom had seen him laugh in a long time. Cameron, now cancer-free and a vibrant first-grader at Landmark Christian School, could not stop thinking of those pigs, and wished that he and his family could all go to Pig Island some day. Thanks to Make-A-Wish Georgia and their partnership with Classic Subaru of Atlanta, that wish will soon come true! Cameron and his classmates were surprised with the first leg of the wish journey, a celebration of Cameron’s 7th birthday. The elementary halls were adorned with elaborate balloon towers and arches befitting a grand celebration. Cameron’s parents, grandparents, and siblings joined the entire elementary school in lining the walkways to cheer for Cameron and his classmates as they made their way outside for a very special field trip. As part of Subaru’s Share the Love EventTM celebration, Classic Subaru of Atlanta provided vehicles for Cameron’s family to travel to their dealership, where the surprise birthday celebration was held, and the Landmark bus, filled with Cameron’s first-grade class, followed closely behind. Upon arrival, Cameron was greeted by a room full of Classic Subaru staff members wearing matching t-shirts that read, “Happy Birthday, Cameron!” The showroom was decked out with all of Cameron’s favorite colors in an island theme to celebrate his wish. They served pizza to all guests and friends and even had a petting zoo of mini piglets for Cameron to enjoy. Of course, a birthday celebration wouldn’t be complete without presents. During the party, Cameron received the biggest surprise of all: the news that Make-A-Wish Georgia was sending his family to the Bahamas to swim with his beloved pigs! It was a fantastic afternoon for all who attending including unsuspecting customers of the dealership who couldn’t help but join in on the festivities. An incredible effort of team work and dedication to a mission that brings hope, strength and joy to not only the wish kids we serve but the entire community. It takes a village to grant a wish and we’re so thankful Classic Subaru of Atlanta is part of ours! Since 2011, Make-A-Wish has participated in the Subaru Share the Love event as a benefiting charity. Over the past 9 years, the event has raised more than $145 million and granted more than 2,200 life-changing wishes nationwide. This year, to strengthen local impact and outreach, Classic Subaru of Atlanta chose Make-A-Wish Georgia as their Hometown Charity for the 2019 event. As a kickoff to the campaign season and highlighting the invaluable role this partnership plays in bringing joy to a child’s life, Classic Subaru hosted a show-stopping celebration for local Georgia wish kid, Cameron.

Classic Subaru Gathers Items for Mutt Maddness  –  Karen T

Classic Subaru and Tri the Parks athletes gather items for Mutt Maddness, a local dog rescue that Classic has worked closely with for almost a decade. On Wednesday October 23, over 150 athletes and their families gathered at Classic Subaru to see their 2019 Triathlon season come to an end. They laughed, they caught up with old friends, they celebrated and they donated. Thanks to their kindness, Mutt Madd-ness went home with a Subaru full of donations for their rescue.

Classic Subaru Honors Triathletes  –  Ann C

We are so grateful for our partnership with Classic Subaru of Atlanta. Classic has supported our local grassroots triathlon race series (Tri the Parks) for over 10 years and we couldn’t be more grateful. The incredible support of Classic goes beyond measure. Not only do they support us financially, but their team attends every one of our triathlons. Our athletes have come to know the team through building relationships, cheering & encouraging, and even their fun chalk art along the race course. One of our favorite nights of the year is our end of season awards banquet hosted by Classic in one of their showrooms. The event is spectacular with awesome door prizes, swag, food and community. They always combine the party with a fundraiser for Mutt Madness where we get to fill a Subaru with much needed pet supplies for a local dog rescue. It is a truly unforgettable event! Classic Subaru has become a part of our Tri the Parks family. Without their support we would not be able to provide our athletes with the quality of triathlons for which our series is known. We are so thankful to be a part of Classic Subaru of Atlanta’s love promise!

The Mutt Madd-ness Family - Dog Approved!  –  Karen T

Classic Subaru of Atlanta has been our go-to since we started our Dog Rescue - Mutt Madd-ness in 2009. They helped us get our Mutt Mobile which has made transporting dogs from shelters to adoptions so much easier. And every year they are all-in with us on a fundraising promotion for our dogs. Their October "Subaru Loves Pets" has helped us pay for 100's of spays and neuters. And when the holidays roll around "Their Share the Love" program has always done just that...our Pancake Breakfast with Santa held at Classic Subaru is always a hit and has brought our rescue much needed revenue. If we are ever in need, they have always been there for us. The Classic Subaru Team, Mike Domenicone, Owner and Tera Bains and her Marketing Team are family to our rescue. Their compassion for what we do is lifesaving. We are so grateful for their ongoing support in helping us save more dogs. Classic Subaru of are DOG & MUTT MADD-NESS APPROVED!

Subaru and LLS Support Cancer Patients  –  Sydney T

On July 11, 2019, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society - Georgia Chapter and Classic Subaru of Atlanta had the pleasure of delivering 80 blankets and 10 arts and craft kits to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite as part of the Subaru Loves to Care program. James Smith, General Sales Manager, and his staff delivered these comforting gifts along with personalized messages of hope written by the customers and staff of Classic Subaru of Atlanta. This incredible act of generosity was warmly received by the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite staff who were thrilled to distribute these comforting gifts to their patients at the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorder Center. The patients were so grateful to receive these gifts. LLS is proud to partner with Subaru to spread hope, love and warmth to those fighting cancer, across the country and right here in the Atlanta, Georgia community. Many thanks to everyone at Classic Subaru of Atlanta and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite, not only for a memorable day, but for supporting LLS’s mission to cure blood cancers and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

Classic Subaru helps childhood cancer patients  –  Paula C

Classic Subaru of Atlanta is helping childhood cancer patients reach for their dreams. CURE Childhood Cancer is honored to have been selected for their local 2019 Share the Love event. Classic Subaru remains engaged in the local community, and they continue to support our mission to find a cure for childhood cancer and to walk beside local families who are on this journey. They have helped Maylee continue to dream and reach for the stars. When three-year-old Maylee Highland of Lagrange, Georgia was diagnosed with leukemia in 2015, she received seven months of harsh chemotherapy that had no chance of working. Of course her doctors didn’t know it at the time, but due to a genetic trait Maylee carries, the standard treatment she was given was ineffective and she relapsed two years later. This time, something had changed. Thanks to a grant from CURE Childhood Cancer, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta was able to establish a precision medicine program in 2017. When Maylee came back to the hospital, her genes were sequenced to see if her cancer’s genetic makeup would provide clues as to the best path of treatment. When they got the results, doctors were able to tailor a new treatment designed just for Maylee – who is in remission now! Because of donors like Classic Subaru, CURE is working to provide personalized medicine for every child diagnosed with cancer. We believe that this will help them to reach for their dreams and we couldn’t do it without you.

Classic Subaru Loves to Care  –  Audrey S

On behalf of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and the patients we serve, thank you for partnering together for the 3rd annual Subaru Loves to Care campaign. It was a pleasure to work with you this year to bring hope and warmth to cancer patients at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite. Since 2015, Subaru and their retailers have partnered with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to donate over 105,000 blankets and 12,465 arts and crafts kits to those fighting cancer at hospitals and cancer treatment centers across the country. Your support is incredibly meaningful and we hope to have the opportunity to partner together again next year. Warm Regards, Audrey Skopitz LLS- Georgia Chapter

Subaru Delivers Warmth and Hope to Cancer Patients  –  Audrey S

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and Classic Subaru of Atlanta were thrilled to partner together to deliver blankets and messages of hope to cancer patients at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta-Scottish Rite. The delivery took place on July 9, 2018, and Tricia Hernandez, LLS Senior Manager of Patient Access, facilitated the event. Hasna Babajic, the sales representative of Classic Subaru of Atlanta, shared that she was proud to work for Subaru and honored to be part of the delivery that day. Patricia Yike, a customer of Classic Subaru of Atlanta, was so inspired by the program that she personally filled out many of the cards with messages of hope and also attended the delivery. She was touched that her Subaru dealership was so involved in the community and thought the Loves to Care Program is a great way to help others. The staff of Classic Subaru of Atlanta was honored to be able to personally deliver the blankets and messages of hope to pediatric cancer patients and their family members who were at the clinic that day. It was inspiring for all involved to be a part of this wonderful event. Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta-Scottish Rite thanks Classic Subaru of Atlanta and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for the 3rd consecutive year of helping bring warmth and hope to their cancer patients through the Subaru Loves to Care Program.

Classic Collects to Help End Hunger!  –  Tera B

Your support during the 2017 – 2018 Share the Love Event means the absolute world to us!! The funding completely exceeded our expectations and will go a long way to help us in our mission of ending senior hunger in North Fulton. Thank you again for your support, and please let Ben and Madison know their volunteer efforts really paid off for us!! We want to thank you and your organization for your efforts and participation in the Share the Love Event. Because of your dedication to creative ideas, community engagement and generation of local media attention, this year's campaign has been a great success.

Thanks to Classic Subaru for Creating Smiles!  –  Tera B

Thanks to Classic Subaru for creating smiles and transforming lives! Dear Eric and Tera- We could not be more grateful for your continuous support of wishes through the Share The Love event each year. With each wish you help grant, you transform the lives of wish kids, their families and the communities you serve. Your support of Make-A-Wish not only helps grant life-changing wishes to children with critical illnesses, it also helps them improve their emotional and physical quality of life. Through our partnership with Subaru, you've helped us raise more than $6366-uniting Subaru drivers and employees in the Make-A-Wish mission and bringing communities closer together. Thank you for making more wishes possible for children battling critical illnesses.

Classic "Stuffs the Subaru" for Local Seniors.  –  Tera B

Subaru is "Sharing the Love" with local senior citizens this holiday season. The holiday season is a special time to make memories and gather with family and friends around the dining room table. For some North Fulton seniors, however, the holidays bring isolation and hunger.Senior Services North Fulton is a nonprofit that supports and cares for adults age 60+ in the North Fulton community. Meals on Wheels is one of the many programs offered by the nonprofit and the deliveries are expedited by nearly 300 volunteers who bring meals and a caring smile Monday through Friday.In 2016 Senior Services North Fulton delivered over 32,000 Meals on Wheels in North Fulton. “I think people are surprised by that number”, said Heather Terry, Community Relations Director for SSNF. “When you think of cities like Alpharetta, Milton, Roswell, and Johns Creek, senior hunger and need don’t come to mind.“ The truth is 1 in 8 seniors in Georgia are food insecure and worry where their next meal will come from.“The holidays can be hard for many of our clients”, Terry continued. “But we always get a huge surge of generosity from the community and philanthropic companies this time of year.” We are thankful to partner with Classic Subaru and Companies like Subaru of America, Inc., which is celebrating its tenth anniversary of their annual Share the Love Event.

Life's Better with a Rescue Dog!  –  Tera B

When Classic Subaru made a promise to our organization in 2009 to be there to support us with our dog rescue efforts we had no idea as a new group what this meant. Years later their "Love Promise" constantly inspires us to keep pushing. Dog rescue can be difficult in the best of times, but the team at Classic Subaru is always there when we hit a low. They came to us recently with the idea of sponsored T-shirts to help with our medical funds. Who knew that a few T-shirts could have such a profound impact on rescue dogs! Classic Subaru created, sponsored and supplied a wonderful RESCUE T-shirt to Mutt Madd-ness, our dog rescue and the sales from the shirt have had wonderful results in the growth of our medical fund. Our adoption fee covers basic medical - vaccines, spay/neuter and chip, but not the unique situations that arise with shelter dogs. A recent example is when one of our pregnant pups needed an ultrasound, T-shirt sells helped pay for it. It's great knowing that the shirt you put on your back has given back twofold. From one of our biggest supporters - Annie and her mom Karen. Annie had surgery last week and as you can see Mom is taking good care of her! "Rather than wearing the dreaded Cone, Annie's incisions are fashionably covered by wearing a Mutt Madd-ness "Life's better with a Rescue Dog" t-shirt. So true!" Feel better soon Annie!

Classic Subaru helps "Make-A-Wish" for Paxton!  –  Tera B

Classic Subaru was happy to grant Paxton's wish to see the Star Wars characters in Disney World. To kick off his journey, we welcomed Paxton with a "Star Wars Themed Sendoff Party!" He and his family joined us in the showroom as we helped him celebrate his wish by sending him off in an exciting way that included Star Wars characters, treats, cake and lots of fun! In 2016, Paxton was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation – a structural defect of the brain. Through the many different treatments, Paxton could always count on action-packed Star Wars movies to lift his spirits! When volunteers asked Paxton what his perfect wish would be, he immediately knew that he wanted to travel to Disney World because he loves all things Disney, especially Star Wars! Paxton and his brother got to live the true Star Wars experience and become Jedi’s for the day through Jedi Training! After perfecting their Jedi abilities, they put their skills to the test and came face-to-face with the notorious Star Wars villains, but they were no problem for Paxton and his brother because they were already experts! Paxton’s wish trip was full of fun and adventure and a well-deserved escape from the daily complications of living with a medical condition. Paxton’s wish had the power to rejuvenate his strength and willingness to continue to fight. Paxton’s wish was truly a dream come true!

Classic Subaru Loves to Care for Cancer Patients  –  Chantal R

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society – Georgia Chapter joined forces with Classic Subaru of Atlanta’s General Manager, Eric Fritsch, and his daughter, Amanda Fritsch, to bring Subaru care packages containing blankets, craft kits, and care cards to the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite Hospital on the 21st of June. We were able to connect with and deliver blankets to patients directly, which was outstanding and heartwarming in and of itself, but what was unique about our experience at CHOA Scottish Rite was the mode of transportation with which the blankets were delivered. The hospital utilizes little red wagons (pictured) instead of wheelchairs to transport patients, because they are a “familiar sign of childhood and bring comfort to the little ones who need it”. These noble chariots were what we used to deliver the blankets. Thanks to the amazing staff at CHOA, we were able to deliver blankets to 10 families in the waiting room. No words can truly describe the brief moment of pure happiness and pleasure that graced these families’ faces upon receiving an item as simple as a blanket; it was a moment that we will remember for many years to come. We can’t thank Subaru enough for giving us this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

Classic Subaru helps to Make-A-Wish!  –  Make-A-Wish G

Paxton is a young and energetic boy who loves adventure. In 2016, Paxton was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation – a structural defect of the brain. Through the many different treatments, Paxton could always count on action-packed Star Wars movies to lift his spirits! When volunteers asked Paxton what his perfect wish would be, he immediately knew that he wanted to travel to Disney World because he loves all things Disney, especially Star Wars! Classic Subaru helped Paxton kick off his wish journey with a red carpet, Star War characters and a bunch of yummy cake! After the party, he couldn’t wait to head out on his wish trip! Soon enough Paxton, along with his mom, dad and brother packed their bags and were on their way to Orlando! After a few days of exploring the different Disney Parks, Paxton and his brother got to live the true Star Wars experience and become Jedi’s for the day through Jedi Training! The Jedi Knights took Paxton and his brother under their protection to teach them how to use the force to wield lightsabers. After perfecting their Jedi abilities, they put their skills to the test and came face-to-face with the notorious Star Wars villains, but they were no problem for Paxton and his brother because they were already experts! Paxton’s wish trip was full of fun and adventure and a well-deserved escape from the daily complications of living with a medical condition.

Classic Shares the Love with CURE!  –  Mark M

Classic Subaru of Atlanta stands by its promise to be more than a retailer of automobiles, but to also be engaged in its community in real and meaningful ways. As a neighbor, CURE Childhood Cancer is proud to be associated with them. They have been a faithful supporter of our mission to find a cure for childhood cancer and to walk beside local families who are struggling with the disease. We were honored to be selected, once again, as a recipient of their Share the Love event and thrilled to meet some of the people at the dealership who are making a difference. We couldn’t do what we do for families fighting cancer without Classic Subaru of Atlanta. Thank you.

Classic Subaru helps CURE Childhood Cancer  –  Kate M

A part of the Subaru Share the Love event, for each person who bought or leased a Subaru between November 19 and January 2, each dealership donated $250 to a local charity that benefits its community. CURE Childhood Cancer was selected, yet again this year, as Classic Subaru of Atlanta’s hometown charity. At the end of this campaign, which has raised more than $65 million across the US, CURE received a check for more than $19,000. This generous donation will go far in furthering our mission to find a cure for childhood cancer. We are eternally grateful for the Share the Love Event, and the hardworking team at Classic Subaru of Atlanta, for their compassion and support. Together, we will find a cure for childhood cancer in our lifetime.

Classic Subaru Gives Back to John Tanner Park  –  Chuck D

Since 2010, Classic Subaru of Atlanta has sponsored our Tri the Parks Race Series that hosts over 5000 racers and spectators at State Parks throughout Georgia. We have always been thankful for their focus on community, but this year tops it as we joined forces to implement a trail clean up during the first race of our series. The clean-up, lead by Classic Subaru Street Team, comprised of race participants and spectators, ranging from young and old alike. This initiative gave athletes and spectators an opportunity to serve their community and give back to the State Park that had been hosting our races for so many years. We always strive to leave our facilities clean, but with this Classic Subaru clean up, we left it in better shape than when we arrived. In addition, Classic Subaru provided our athletes with re-usable water bottles and re-usable multi-use bags to help cut down on the amount of waste generated. Thanks to all who gave so graciously of their time and to Classic Subaru for helping us "Love the Earth." We look forward to serving together again to help make a difference in the communities where we race!

John Tanner Blessed with Subaru Trail Clean Up  –  Trudy C

We are always happy to have Blue Sky Sports in John Tanner Park for the triathlon and were doubly blessed this spring to be part of the Subaru Loves the Earth initiative. It is a welcome blessing to see a company such as Subaru give back to the environment and their efforts in cleaning an area around our trails and lake were much appreciated given our limited resources. We applaud Subaru in all they do and look forward to continued cooperation in the future. Trudy Crunkleton Carroll County Parks Director

Classic Gives Back to John Tanner State Park  –  Kari G

Being a member of the military and working in the field of Public Health, fuels my passion for the environment and community well being. That’s why it is easy to recognize businesses such as Classic Subaru of Atlanta, who go above and beyond the normal sponsor duties. I have competed in the Tri the Parks racing series for three years and each year Subaru has played a huge role in making these events possible. Classic Subaru is not only a generous sponsor for these events, but they also play a role making a positive impact on our neighborhoods and communities through the Subaru love promise. This past race at John Tanner State park Subaru teamed with racers, spectators and the racing committee to clean up a portion of the park. We picked up multiple bags of trash, keeping the trail clean. This is just another great example of how Subaru gives back to the community. I really enjoyed teaming with Subaru to give back to the one thing that always keeps giving…. The Earth. Always, Kari Giles.

Loved the Trail Clean-Up at Tri the Parks  –  Mari F

It was so great having Classic Subaru of Atlanta as a sponsor of the John Tanner Sprint Triathlon (Tri the Parks) this past Saturday, April 30th. I was so excited to take part in the trail clean-up they organized after the race. It was PERFECT! For starters, this was a great way to give back to the park for hosting our event. Next, I was pleased to see Subaru’s commitment to the earth and involving the athletes. Also, I got a warm and fuzzy feeling about the folks at Tri the Parks for their partnership with Subaru. I am looking forward to seeing these folks at the next Tri the Parks race. When Subaru is sponsoring an event, I know I am in the right place!

Classic Subaru Loves Learning!  –  Tera B

As part of Subaru's Love Promise, a pledge to do right by the communities in which we all live and work, Subaru introduced the Loves Learning Book Donation Event. Partnered with the American Association for Advancement of Science AAAS, Classic Subaru presented Autrey Middle School with more than 8 boxes of books. The Owner and Operator of Classic Subaru, Mike Domenicone is pictured here during the delivery. These books are designed to supplement existing curriculum by supporting K-12 Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. This Loves Learning Initiative is helping to build reading and literacy skills as well as creating a connection with our community, and we are thankful to have been a part of it. A quote from Autrey Middle School: "Thanks so much for both the books. We are currently using the books as part of our Pollinator Garden Project. Our 7th grade students are designing and building a pollinator garden (primarily for butterflies) on an unused area of our campus. We are very excited to see help from our community and we are very well aware of how Subaru gives back to the community."

Classic goes "Top Shelf" for Endurance Concepts  –  Dan A

Thank you does not begin to touch the surface for what Classic Subaru has done for not only the triathlon community but for Endurance Concepts. As a small business owner, I rely on partners that are highly involved and beneficial to not only the TeamEC brand but to my athletes on a personal and professional level. Since 2014, Classic Subaru has provided Endurance Concepts with not only a location for a lecture series to benefit the triathlon community but also catered it and had their staff on hand. This says a lot to me. On a personal level the support through items that are very useful and needed in the completion of our sport does not go unnoticed. We go through many water bottles in a year and Classic provides them at a rate which is superior. Once again, they could easily go the easy route and purchase bottles that would not last, but instead you, like the Subaru brand, go top shelf. Having the opportunity to show my athletes what a Subaru can actually do is vital to Endurance Concepts as well. Being able to have an Outback for training camps, daily athlete meetings and throughout the year gives a specific face to not only the Subaru brand but the Classic brand in the triathlon community. Without the personal relationships that I have developed at Classic Subaru and the sponsorship help they have provided for many years we would not be able to do half of what we do. Thank You does not even begin to scratch the surface.

Classic Subaru and IMBA-SORBA together again!  –  Lisa R

Dear Classic Subaru of Atlanta, Thank you for your continued support of the Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association (SORBA), Woodstock Chapter in 2016. Your donations to our organization has helped to cover trail maintenance costs for 30 miles of trail between Blankets Creek and Rope Mill Park. We enjoyed having you at our mountain bike events and greatly appreciate the reusable tote bags that you provided for our participant swag bags, as well as the cowbells, energy gels and other goodies that you made available to our event participants.Thank you again for supporting cycling in our community! SORBA Woodstock

Classic Loves the Earth and Heritage Sandy Springs  –  Sarah P

Classic Subaru of Atlanta was a generous sponsor of our recent Rhythm & Brews event, a fundraiser for Heritage Sandy Springs, which provided an opportunity for hometown musicians and businesses to gain exposure. Fundraisers and community support like this allows Heritage Sandy Springs to present many meaningful, community-minded initiatives throughout the year, including a weekly Farmers Market, care and upkeep of nearly 4 acres of gardens, Community Gardening programs, Educational Children's Programs and much more. With Classic Subaru's focus this month on Subaru Loves The Earth, they were on site during this event greeting the community and handing out re-useable totes and re-useable water bottles. Beyond that, Classic Subaru has helped Heritage Sandy Springs gain exposure for our Weekly Farmers Market which will open for the season April 16. We are thankful for local support such as this, and are looking forward to a continued partnership with lots of benefits to our community.

Classic Subaru Supports Team in Training!  –  Carly R

Classic Subaru of Atlanta continues to be a huge supporter of Team In Training (TNT). TNT is the flagship fundraising program for The Leukemia Lymphoma Society (LLS) and the only endurance sports training program for charity that raises money for blood cancer research. For two years in a row, Classic Subaru has been a Gold Level Sponsor of our marathon team. This sponsorship ensures that our teammates are able to have a safe, fun and effective training season. Classic Subaru's sponsorship helped six participants meet and surpass their fundraising commitment. After months of fundraising and training, our team headed to San Juan for the Puerto Rico Marathon and Half Marathon. There, TNT chapters from across the country gathered to celebrate the money raised toward blood cancer treatment and research. The Georgia Chapter alone raised nearly $150,000. There was not a dry eye in the room when a leukemia survivor shared her story the night before the race. In the morning, the team took to the streets of Old San Juan to run 13.1 or 26.2 miles, proudly displaying the Classic Subaru logo on their shirts.

Hundreds of Seniors Benefitted from the Love.  –  George L

When Senior Services North Fulton contacted Classic Subaru of Atlanta to seek their support on an idea for a Share the Love event, Eric Fritsch and Tera Bains were all in. Times two in fact providing a pair of brand new vehicles, as well as cases of Subaru branded giveaways for the events. In its 25 years, Senior services North Fulton has served thousands of seniors in North Georgia, with programs like Meals on Wheels, transportation services, community centers and Friendly Visitors. All of their services are free to the seniors funded through the county and by donations from businesses and individuals in the area. Subaru has a long history in supporting Meals on Wheels and happily took on our plans for donation collection sites. The goal, at a local Walmart and a nearby Petsmart, was to Fill the Subaru with Love. At the Walmart, volunteers collected critical essentials for the seniors, like protein supplement powders, bedding, clothing and the like. At the Petsmart (and in support of a program called Meals on Wheels for Pets) donations of every shape and sort were stacked into the Subaru Outback SUV. By the end of the day, both the vehicles overflowed. Clearly, these events would not have been possible were it not for Classic Subaru's generosity. In a classic example of They didn't have to do it Classic Subaru did it. And because they did, hundreds of North Fulton seniors benefited from the Love they Shared.

Classic is definitely DOG TESTED. DOG APPROVED.  –  Karen T

Classic Subaru of Atlanta does all year for Mutt Madd-ness Dog Rescue! They are the gift that keeps on giving....Classic Subaru contacted the rescue about doing a Breakfast with Santa Fundraiser -- well, it turned out UNBELIEVABLY GREAT! Classic Subaru set up their showroom with a beautiful Christmas tree, all the tables were set with poinsettias and holiday music was piped in! Santa was gorgeous - looked like the REAL deal; the turnout was amazing, pancakes and more. Through their efforts, marketing and promotion - our dog rescue raised over $15,000 towards our medical fund! Classic Subaru has continued to support this seasonal event by supplying us with the event T-shirt; this has allowed the rescue to continue to raise funds at our regular events and dog adoptions. Mutt Madd-ness has many dogs that require specialized treatment due to a ruff start and these funds are crucial to us. Whether it's a c-section for a dog in crisis, specialized care for a puppy with pneumonia, heartworm treatment, behavioral evaluation...the medical list is endless and once in our rescue they are cared for as our own. We could not ask for a better partner - Classic Subaru of Atlanta is definitely DOG TESTED. DOG APPROVED. Mutt Madd-ness could not be more grateful to be backed by such a super team; we hope they realize how much they mean to us! Wet Noses & Warm Hearts, Mutt Madd-ness Dog Rescue Marietta, Georgia

Southeastern Endurance and Multisport Expo-SEE-ME  –  Mike L

Dear Classic Subaru of Atlanta: I cannot begin to list out all the "thanks" for the store's support of the Southeastern Endurance and Multisport Expo (SEE-ME) for the past several years. As you know, this event not only brings together the endurance sports community in the southeast, but more importantly serves as a key fund-raiser for The Getting2Tri Foundation (G2T), a charity that uses "sports" as the key ingredient to creating opportunities of confidence for individuals with physical disabilities such as limb loss, paralysis, and spinal cord injuries. Classic's annual support has allowed hundreds of disabled individuals and able-bodied volunteers alike to participate in G2T's community-based events for the greater good. Thank you, Classic Subaru of Atlanta, for stepping up and helping out with your time, talents and treasures. We are truly grateful. Most sincerely, Mike Lenhart Founder & President The Getting2Tri Foundation

Wet Noses- Warm Hearts, Mutt Madd-ness Dog Rescue  –  Karen T

Dear Classic Subaru of Atlanta, Thank you for ALWAYS jumping in with all paws for Mutt Madd-ness Dog Rescue! You've been our rescuer since 2009 when we first came to you with our Subaru rescue story. You were instrumental in our obtaining our rescue vehicle the "Mutt Mobile" and helping us raise funds and awareness through your "Share the Love" program. You've opened your hearts and dealership for dog adoptions and we can't think of a single time when we've heard no, it's always been "Sit, Stay and Shake on it!" Your team at Classic Subaru from the top down - are top dogs in our books. Your recent participation (financial and physical) in a fundraising golf tournament at crack of dawn - in the middle of who knows where we were - was a testament to the extent you go to support our efforts. Thank you Classic Subaru for always coming to the rescue, your support has helped us save more dogs from Georgia's high kill shelters; we could not do it without the support of a great business like yours!

The American Red Cross is excited to partner with Classic Subaru of Atlanta by hosting a blood drive. Come out and donate blood on July 1st, 2015. You don't need a special reason to give blood. You just need your own reason. Some of us give blood because we were asked by a friend, some know that a family member or a friend might need blood some day or some believe it is the right thing we do. Whatever your reason, the need is constant and your contribution is important for a healthy and reliable blood supply. And you'll feel good knowing you've helped change a life. It feels great to donate! You will be someone's hero - in fact, you could save up to three lives with just one donation!

Classic Subaru of Atlanta and CURE  –  Lauren S

CURE Childhood Cancer's mission is clear: to find a cure for childhood cancer in our lifetime. Each year, CURE dedicates more than $2.5 million to specific research projects aimed at solving cancers which affect children, as well as offers crisis-oriented support to patients and their families. This year, CURE was chosen as Classic Subaru of Atlanta's Hometown Charity and received a check for more than $18,000. "Less than 4% of federal cancer research funding is dedicated to pediatric cancers," says Kristin Connor, Executive Director of CURE Childhood Cancer. "So that means our kids are relying on people like you and me - and companies like Subaru - to raise the funding needed to save their lives. We are eternally grateful for the Share the Love Event, and the hardworking team at Classic Subaru of Atlanta, for their compassion and support. Because of them, we are one step closer to achieving our mission."
