Students love the animal books! - Laura Madrigal - Laura M

To Subaru Santa Monica, Thank you so much for this amazing donation. As a first year teacher it can be quite daunting to build up our classrooms so this will definitely go a long way. I have been looking into flexible seating because it can greatly benefit many students but they can get quite pricy. With your donations I will be able to offer this to my students along with more books to add to our growing library. My students love to animal books so I will definitely purchase a class set. Lastly, I will also be purchasing more classroom supplies like paint, chart paper, and folders. Thanks again, Laura Madrigal Stoner Avenue Elementary School

Adopt A Classroom - Paola Ornelas - Paola O

To Subaru Santa Monica, Thank you so much for this donation! I will be able to use this to provide the students utensils and materials that will encourage focus during lessons. I've been able to gather some fidget and sensory tools/pillows, but this will help me get enough for every one of my students. I will also be able to make this space feel welcoming by decorating with many different colors and posters as well as small reading corner rugs and calling posters. I am so thankful for the opportunity to create a safe, welcoming, and motivating classroom for all of my students. It is important not just for myself as the teacher, but for the school as well to provide students with the time to work and develop their social-emotional needs, which will be addressed by buying them fidgets and motivational/feelings posters. Thanks again, Paola Ornelas Stoner Avenue Elementary School

Adopt A Classroom - Laura Gomez - Hugo Perez - Hugo P

To Subaru Santa Monica, This means so much to me as a new teacher beginning my career! It's been a long journey to now finally reach my dream, and this donation is going to do wonders for my students! Most of our students live in the projects, so many of them don't have the certain supplies that others may. With the donation I have been blessed with, I plan on getting the essentials needed to make them happy and feel as prepared as possible to learn! I want them to know that we care for them and are here to provide them all the support we possibly can. I sincerely appreciate your consideration and donation for our wonderful students, our future! Thanks again, Hugo Perez Stoner Avenue Elementary School - Hugo Perez

Come rain or shine - Annie W

Our pets are with us through thick and thin, providing us with emotional support and unconditional love. They deserve so much more than a life in the shelter, or even worse a life cut short. Luckily, there are those working to help pets in need and on October 15th they showed up in the rain to make a difference, just like our pets show up for us every day come rain or shine. Subaru Santa Monica kindly hosted Karma Rescue’s spay/neuter clinic with Amazing Small Animal Practice. This was followed by an adoption event with Karma Rescue’s adoption partners: Beach City Kitties, Ozzie and Friends Rescue, Earth Angels Rescue, Los Angeles Rabbit Foundation and Above and Beyond Guinea Rescue and their grand total of 45 animals! It was a busy day with all hands on deck from Karma volunteers, Joey and his gracious Subaru staff and Amazing Small Animal Practice’s vet team. Despite the rainy start, it was a huge success. 28 pets were fixed, 16 pets vaccinated, 20 pets microchipped, and our vet partner even found time to squeeze in two dental cleanings and a hernia repair! To end the day, 6 pets found their loving forever homes. Subaru Santa Monica gave Karma Rescue the opportunity to tackle shelter overcrowding and to help pets live healthier lives with their families. Bringing groups together tackles the issue from all angles and ensures pets have brighter, sunnier futures they deserve.

Oktoberfest and Meals on Wheels West - Chris B

Subaru Santa Monica hosted their Oktoberfest customer appreciation event last month. Delicious German brats and pretzel buns were served along with live music provided by The Venice West fan favorite "The Brobots" who were great! One special part of the night was having Meals on Wheels West President Chris Baca speak about their organization and what they're all about. They are part of the upcoming Subaru Share the Love program with Subaru Santa Monica and will have presence at the upcoming LA Auto Show. Overall, it was a great night to have the community gathered together for great food and music.

Subaru Santa Monica - Angie W

On Friday, June 24th, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Greater Los Angeles region and Subaru Santa Monica had the pleasure of gathering outside of Venice Family Clinic to deliver 80 blankets and craft kits as part of the Subaru Loves to Care Program. Included in the delivery were personalized messages of hope written by Subaru customers. This incredible partnership meant so much to the Venice Family Clinic staff, who were appreciative to deliver these items to their patients currently undergoing treatment. These blankets will go to good use with the patients that need them most. We look forward to working with Subaru Santa Monica in the future. Many thanks for Subaru Santa Monica and Venice Family Clinic, not only for the memorable day, but for supporting LLS’s mission to cure blood cancers and improve this quality-of-life patients and their families.
