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

Wildlife Habitat  –  M H

A local beekeeper visited my classroom to speak with my eighth grade students about the importance of pollinators. We were all struck by the importance of honey-bees in our food chain. When The National Wildlife Foundation offered my students a garden sponsored by Subaru, we were especially eager to play a role in sustainability. We were thrilled to receive 18 locally friendly plants that contribute food to pollinators, and funding to create a habitat for them. It's been very exciting working on our garden, and yesterday we saw the first monarch butterfly land there! Thank you, Subaru, for helping us to do our part to sustain the planet!

I Love My Subaru  –  Melena B

Several years ago I traded in my Subaru for a vehicle I thought would give me more bang for the buck. It didn't take long to realize I made a mistake. Whenever anyone asked if I liked my vehicle, I'd reply "Yes but it's not a Subaru." Today I traded in my vehicle for a 2017 Subaru Forester and I couldn't be happier. Working with Linda Manning was like meeting up with a long lost friend. She was attentive to my request and found me the perfect Subaru. Linda additionally took time to provide me detailed instructions on all the features in the Forester & answer my questions. I couldn't have asked for a friendlier sales consultant. My Forester fits me like a comfy pair of shoes. Not only do I love how the vehicle handles on the road, it also looks great inside and out. I drove out of Riverhead Bay Subaru with a huge smile on my face and no regrets. When anyone ask if I like my vehicle I will eagerly reply "I LOVE MY SUBARU!"

Giving Back To A Place That Hits Home  –  Jamie G

Imagine a child lying in the hospital diagnosed with cancer. They are likely scared, angry & confused – a dark time for any cancer patient, let alone a child. The hospital rooms look all the same, white sheets, white walls, and having something special like a warm blanket & a care card with a message of hope livens up their room & brings comfort. The Long Island Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) partnered with Riverhead Bay Subaru to deliver blankets & care cards to pediatric patients undergoing cancer treatments at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital. For Riverhead Bay Subaru’s GM Anthony Mauro & GSM George Reveliotis it was also personal. George’s mom lost her battle to breast cancer five years ago. Anthony’s mother, Susan, 62, was diagnosed with lymphoma in the spring of 2016 & was treated at Stony Brook. For three months, Susan endured six rounds of chemotherapy and is currently preparing for a transplant in September. “Going to Stony Brook Hospital to offer blankets to patients going through the same situation as my mother was a reminder to me of how delicate our lives really are. I hope that we offered hope to those mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, children, and grandchildren whose families are fighting against the odds,” said Mauro. LLS is also thrilled to be chosen as Riverhead Bay Subaru’s Hometown Charity for their Share The Love program.

Riverhead Bay Subaru and Long Island LLS  –  Jamie G

The Long Island Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) was thrilled to work with a company as generous as Subaru. LLS staff met with dealers, Anthony and George from Riverhead Bay Subaru in Riverhead, NY. Unfortunately, Anthony’s mom was recently diagnosed with a blood cancer and George’s mom passed away from one. For Anthony, we were happy to provide him with resources to share with his family and his mother. Both dealers were proud to work for a company as philanthropic as Subaru especially with a charity that hits so close to him. The LLS staff, Anthony and George met with the staff at Stony Brook University Hospital Cancer Center. One of the staff members, was child life specialist, Lauren, who works with children and their families to help them cope with the challenges of their illness. The Long Island Chapter of LLS has worked closely with Lauren as she recently raised nearly $100,000 for our Man & Woman of the Year campaign, a 10 week fundraising competition benefiting LLS. Since Lauren works with so many children, she was beyond thrilled to receive the care cards and blankets from Riverhead Bay Subaru. She knew what a difference these would make and was happy to provide these children with a special gift. It has been wonderful working with Subaru overall, but especially Riverhead Bay Subaru as they generously chose us as their 5th local charity for their Loves to Care program. We are humbled & honored and hope to continue this partnership with Subaru.
