Rally for Toys! - Quincy H

Since Winter of 2018, Don Miller Subaru East has partnered up with Madison area Subaru Ambassadors to make a difference in the lives of children in South Central Wisconsin. The Rally for Toys takes place every year for two weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas, and DME serves as a collection point for new toys that are later distributed to Madison area charities and donated to the American Family Children's Hospital at UW-Madison. In 2019, we received so many donations the new Subaru Ascent was overflowing with gifts! The Rally for Toys has become a holiday tradition and the Subaru Ambassadors of Madison thank Don Miller Subaru East for the support!

Foundation for Madison's Public Schools - Laurie S

The Foundation for Madison’s Public Schools is deeply grateful to Don Miller Subaru for selecting us to be the Subaru Share the Love Hometown Charity recipient in 2020. Subaru and the Foundation are natural partners considering our shared focus on community, quality education, and service to educators. This generous program will help the Foundation bring vital supplies to students and teachers throughout the Madison Metropolitan School District. The Foundation for Madison’s Public Schools is a true hometown charity. For nearly 20 years we have supported the education of every child by raising private funds, awarding grants, developing community partnerships, and advocating for Madison’s public schools. We believe that every child deserves a high quality and equitable education. In early 2020, the Foundation launched the Teachers P.E.T.S. (Progress Equity Tools and Supplies) program to create an equitable classroom experience for all students and to relieve teachers from spending their own money on supplies. Then, with the COVID-19 pandemic, school supplies quickly became an urgent need, as thousands of students did not have the supplies required for at-home learning. Since August, thanks to funding from generous community donors, we have raised more than $220,000 to help deliver over 3,723 school supply kits to students in need of resources. Students across every one of our 50 Madison public schools have benefited. However, we are far from finished; the Madison school district estimates an additional 2,000-4,000 students will need supplies and other supports to ensure their wellbeing this school year. The support of Don Miller Subaru’s Share the Love program will help to meet these ongoing needs. To learn more or to donate to the Teachers P.E.T.S. school supply program, visit the Foundation for Madison’s Public Schools’ website: www.fmps.org. We can’t thank our community—and especially Don Miller Subaru—enough for what has already been accomplished; a heartening example of how even in the toughest of times, we can rally behind one of our community’s greatest assets: our public schools!

Starting from humble beginnings in the parking lot of Don Miller Subaru back in 2006, this event has grown from the typical car show to a unique Subaru experience, all thanks to Don Miller Subaru East! This event features a Subaru car show, Rallycross, Autocross, Street-Drags and Overland Playground and offers it's attendees a taste of the variety and capabilities of each Subaru model, all while supporting local charities and resources. As our main sponsor and benefactor, Don Miller Subaru East has provided an immense amount of support over the years. Being 100% charitable, the event is run entirely by volunteers to raise money for the Dane County Humane Society and American Family Children's Hospital at UW-Madison. Since moving out of the parking lot in 2015 for a more expansive venue, Subaru FL4TFEST has raised over $26,000, with 2019 being our biggest year at a whopping $9,000! We will be forever thankful for the continuing support received from DME and look forward to what our future together may bring!

Subaru Shares the Love with JDRF - Lottie B

On behalf of JDRF, I want to thank Don Miller Subaru for giving us the opportunity to be the Hometown Charity for the 2019 - 2020 Subaru Share the Love Event. Through this generous charitable gift, JDRF will provide local and national funding for diabetes research, as well as support for children and families challenged by Type One diabetes. Type One Diabetes, formerly known as Juvenile Diabetes, is an autoimmune disease that affects children, teens, and adults. The pancreas of someone with T1D produces little or no insulin. Insulin is a hormone needed to allow sugar, (glucose) to enter cells to produce energy and maintain health. T1D patients are dependent on artificially injected insulin and must constantly manage the disease to prevent life threatening complications. The money raised during the Share the Love event supports important research throughout the world and locally at the University of Wisconsin Medical Center, in Madison, WI. In the last 50 years, research dollars have brought many life-saving advances, including artificial insulin and many improvements to the management of the disease. Dollars raised are also used to provide education materials, outreach, and support to families in the Dane County area and surrounding communities. Recently, more online information and access to JDRF Toolkits and other resources have been vital to help type one patients and their families, especially, during COVID-19. Thank you again Don Miller Subaru for all of your support! For more information, please visit, www.jdrf.org/wisconsin

Don Miller Employees Shining Examples to All! - Susan H

Thanks could not be enough for all that Don Miller Subaru has done for the American Diabetes Association and those living with diabetes. The Don Miller - East team has worked with us on our Tour de Cure and Step Out Walk events for many years by sponsoring our event and their own employee teams! When we think of shining examples in our midst, Don Miller Subaru comes to light because they truly care about those they serve in our community. They support our children and families living with diabetes by being there to cheer them on and walk and bike along side them. When a Don Miller employee, like Lewis, Carl or Dave, engage with our mission, magic happens. Their participation encourages us all to dig a little deeper and "be like Don Miller"...they show up not only on event day to cheer their team and others on, but, they are there during our planning stages, our set up, our tear down and our celebrations of accomplishment for our Champions. They show their support by being there, right beside us, right beside those who are walking, running and biking--setting the example that your health and community are important. It is not every day, or any company that shows this commitment to home, health and family. And, the Don Miller Team and teammates are some of our most outstanding Champions! The support Don Miller gives not only helps our events but also helps our children go to camp, where they get to be kids, and as some say, "feel normal" around other kids just like them. It helps to support our education, our advocacy and our research. Don Miller and Team's support helps us to reach out to families when they need it most--at diagnosis and beyond. Our retreat for newly diagnosed children gives each family the cornerstone that will build their community of support for a lifetime. When they need us, where they need us, how they need us...we can fulfill our mission, because of Don Miller Subaru. We like to say we are Connected For Life, and we are forever grateful to have been connected to Don Miller for so long, and so proud to have accomplished so much together. Until there is a Cure, we will continue to work together to help people thrive with diabetes.Thank you so much, for all that you do and the example you set. You are incredible stewards in our communities!

Aldo Leopold Nature Center Partners with Subaru - Kelley V

It is thanks to Subaru of America and Don Miller Subaru of Madison, Wisconsin (both East and West dealerships) that we can address what we believe are the two greatest challenges in today’s world: the health of our children and the health of the planet, as the two are inextricably connected. This has been a particularly exciting year for ALNC as we have been steadily working to fulfil our strategic planning initiative: Create Equitable Access for ALL Children Ages 2 through 14. Here are a few ways the Subaru Share the Love Event, through both Don Miller Subaru West and East dealerships, are fulfilling our goals to combat inequality and preserve and protect the environment: -Grew the Wonder Bugs on the Road preschool program from four to 11 off-site locations—community centers where very young children and their parents/caregiver can benefit from multigenerational learning experiences in the natural world -Increased the number of Summer Camp scholarships awarded -Launched Family Access Membership -Continued to grow the free bus transportation subsidies program for qualifying schools -Launched the free monthly Bird & Hiking programs -Offered free Family Events—Fall Fest, Candlelit Snowshoe Hike and Maple Syrup Fest -Continued to offer our popular school Field Trips at a nominal rate -Expanded our partnership with Badger Rock Middle School to better serve this Charter school’s 78% economically-challenged population. The results we expect to achieve are to foster a lifelong commitment to being innovative, involved and responsible stewards of the land, well equipped with creative problem-solving skills, scientific and social literacy, ethical awareness and an understanding of the symbiotic relationship between humans and the environment. As a result, environmentally literate citizens will address the needs of our changing and challenging world. Established in 1994, the Aldo Leopold Nature Center (ALNC) is a non-profit organization providing year-round environmental educational programming. Our mission is to engage and educate current and future generations, empowering them to respect, protect, and enjoy the natural world. Guided by Aldo Leopold’s land ethic, our vision is that: Engaged, educated, and empowered people take action to protect the natural world and create healthy and sustainable communities. ALNC offers interactive and innovative school field trips, after school programs, summer camps, seasonal family programs, scout, home and pre-school programs (both on and off-site), special events, teacher workshops, and interactive science-based exhibits. In 2017, children and their families visited ALNC a total of 63,720 times.
