We're All Arkansans - Danielle D

On the afternoon of March 31, disaster struck the capital city of Arkansas. At approximately 2:30 pm an EF3 tornado, the strongest to hit central Arkansas since 1999, tore through 13 miles of the city. In the aftermath of the destruction many people lost their lifelong homes, numerous pets became lost and displaced, countless people suffered injuries, and five people lost their lives. The cities of Little Rock and North Little Rock were forever changed that afternoon with 2100 residents directly affected and over 2600 structures damaged. The next morning the strength of the city became apparent. As the team at Subaru of Little Rock sprang into action, opening their doors as a collection site for donations, going into communities to help with debris cleanup and deliver tarps, boxes, and other items needed to prep for more incoming storms, they realized they were joined by many others in the community. Arkansas isn’t that big of a state and when something happens to our beloved state, all of us feel it. In an effort to help, Adventure Subaru, one of only two Subaru stores in Arkansas, reached out to Subaru of Little Rock to see how the residents of Northwest Arkansas could help. After some discussion between Adventure Subaru’s Marketing Director, Danielle Dotson, and Subaru of Little Rock’s General Manager, Mike Wilson, the stores decided to hold a joint donation drive between April 10 and April 17. During this time, they would work together through social media and their customer base to ask the Arkansas community to help those in need — and the community responded. On the morning of April 18, Adventure Subaru’s Love Promise® Champions Dee Gardner and Hayley Willis along with Danielle Dotson loaded a Subaru Ascent and a Subaru Forester with the items they had collected over the past seven days. As they embarked on their 200-mile journey to meet the team at Subaru of Little Rock it was apparent that the community in Northwest Arkansas wanted to help. Each vehicle was filled to the roof with the back seats folded flat! After the three-hour trip, they arrived at Subaru of Little Rock where they were greeted by Mike Wilson and his team of Love Promise Champions, Melanie Cavender and Patrick Tibbitts, solidifying their commitment to each other and their community. The teams then packed up an estimated $10,000 worth of clothing, canned food, bottled water, pet food, hygiene products, baby diapers, and household items filling up four Subaru Ascents and one Subaru Forester. That afternoon the teams made their way to the Little Rock City Center (a drop-off/donation center) where it took nearly 10 flatbed trolleys to unload all the items from the Subarus! They were met with great gratitude and appreciation from all the volunteers at the Little Rock City Center!

Champions for Kids - Adelaide S

Thank you for your very generous sponsorship to Champions for Kids provided this year! Your very generous contribution plays a significant role in helping Champions for Kids continue to strengthen and expand our “I Finished Strong Reading Champion” programs in NWA. Your sponsorship helps us expand our Spring and Summer programs to more high poverty K-8 Schools in Fayetteville and Springdale schools in 2023! Your partnership has been instrumental in helping 486 students finish strong in reading in 2022. Your partnership ensures that we will be well on our way to helping over 1000 youth in 2023 finish strong academically, with laser focus on reading. As you are well aware, student reading scores plunged during COVID-19. Student reading scores in Arkansas are some of the lowest in the nation. Adventure Subaru is helping students in NWA change the trajectory of their life by inspiring and rewarding youth to finish strong in reading. It is exhilarating to partner with teachers each semester who are beyond grateful for these programs. Your amazing partnership and contribution make possible the program’s continued reach and impact. We are deeply thankful for Adventure Subaru’s friendship, long term support and your very kind and generous partnership. With our deepest appreciation to you for your years of support for Champions for Kids! Thank you for being Champions for Kids! Adelaide Schaeffer

Your Gift Helps Us Cast a Lifeline to Veterans in Need - John L

On behalf of our Veterans and military service members who are supported in their healing journey through Project Healing Waters (PHW) activities, we thank you for your generous contribution received for the NWA program. Your gift is an inspiration to us all and helps us cast a lifeline to Veterans in need. PHW used the restorative activities of fly fishing to help our participants adapt, heal, and discover Post-Traumatic Growth. Our programs offer a very special kind of rehabilitative therapy: a therapy based not only on the fly rod and vise, but also the incredible healing power of camaraderie among fellow Veterans and the mentoring and friendship provided by strong, caring volunteers. The PHW program is free for participants, so financial and in-kind donations are critical in providing us with the resources needed to sustain and grow our programs. Your gift will help us purchase the equipment and supplies necessary to support ongoing, year-round fly fishing instruction, classes and trips. You are helping us change lives and you can trust PHW to be responsible stewards of your generous donation. John “Saint” Langford, CEO Project Healing Waters

Hydration for Life - Rhonda W

Thank you so much for your continued sponsorship of our programs to promote proper hydration and prevent heat illness. With your help in 2022, we donated over 5,000 water bottles, 16 cool tubs and provided education at 62 schools, 8 after school/summer programs, and 12 various community events. In addition, we’ve begun to expand our education outreach to school band programs, as well as other local athletic groups and leagues. Your investment helps us plan for another year of education and growth as we continue to create solid education programs for people of all ages, such as: hydration education for aging adults, posters for elementary schools, and providing squeeze bottles to every second grader in Northwest Arkansas. YOU are making a difference in the health and safety of another generation. Thank you.

"All I want for Christmas is KALE AND THIS DIP!" - Mary T

Thank you for your contribution to Apple Seeds. We are honored to have built a partnership with Adventure Subaru. You truly make a difference for us, and we are extremely grateful. Because of your unwavering commitment to our mission over the past few years, our program has successfully navigated a worldwide pandemic and continued to service students in the most crucial times. Through your support, our program has grown and put us on a path to serve even more students facing food insecurity with nutrition programming in 2023. Your support makes all the difference for those we serve like “Maggie.” Maggie is a second grader from Walker Elementary. After preparing a snack with kale at Apple Seeds, she exclaimed, “All I want for Christmas is KALE AND THIS DIP!” As you can see, students are getting excited about fresh veggies at Apple Seeds and through our work, we are building a foundation for health for the youth of NWA. Speaking of kale, over 64% of students say that they will eat a snack with kale in it after visiting the farm. There is a common misconception today that children just do not like vegetables; however at Apple Seeds, we see the contrary everyday. Students do like vegetables– and they like them even more when they have a hand in growing, harvesting, and preparing them. When students are given the chance to have a hands-on experience with vegetables, their outlook on healthy foods changes. Suddenly, they are curious and excited about the radish they see at the grocery store. Or they can’t wait to prepare a nutritious meal for their family with the produce they have received from Apple Seeds. Impact like this can create generational changes in the health of individuals and families, and that is why your support is so important. THANK YOU for being part of all this. We look forward to a continued partnership with Adventure Subaru.
