The Subaru Share the Love Event

April 2022

We finally had the opportunity to present all the Subaru Share the Love Event checks from the previous three years to our local charity partner The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society - Western Pennsylvania, Western New York & West Virginia!
Thanks to your elections, we managed to present a grand total of $50,196. On top of this, we have also raised an additional $10,200 through our annual reindeer events, for a total of $60,396!



Cleaning Up Route 403 for Subaru Loves the Earth
April 2022

To continue our commitment with Subaru Loves the Earth, we have officially adopted a highway through Pennsylvania's Adopt-a-Highway Program! Our section is a two mile stretch of Route 403 outside of Greenhouse Park, and our first clean up coincided with the weekend of Earth Day. Employees, ambassadors, and family members volunteered together to collect 21 bags of trash to help keep the area litter free.
At a minimum we must schedule litter collections twice a year and the initial commitment lasts for two years. However, we believe this is the start of a long-lasting commitment to keep the roadside, river, creeks, and surrounding area litter free.


Johnstown Soup Kitchen - Saint Vincent de Paul

Collecting Cereal and Cereal Bar Donations
December 2021

Several of our Subaru Ambassadors rallied together to collect cereal and cereal bar donations for the Johnstown Soup Kitchen, part of the Saint Vincent de Paul mission. Throughout December, we aided the ambassadors in collecting and, with the help of our customers, were able to fill up a WRX and Crosstrek to the brim with donations and deliver them right before Christmas. In all we collected over 200 boxes.



Subaru Loves Learning at Maple Ridge Elementary School
September 2021

Subaru Loves Learning looked a bit different this year. We partnered up with Maple Ridge Elementary School, part of the Somerset AreaSchool District, to help provide much needed supplies for students. Through AdoptAClassroom.org, we were able to adopt six different classrooms. Through this partnership, we provided funds to the teachers who then purchased supplies they needed to help further the education of their students. 


4th Annual Pet Trick or Treat

A Benefit for the Humane Society of Cambria County
October 17th, 2021

This marked the official return of Pet Trick or Treat! After halting a year because of the pandemic, we were excited to return to our signature event. Activities included the costume contest, pet portraits by WhatMiaSaw Photography, the Subaru Ambassador Doggy Carnival Games, and of course trick or treating.

There were many wonderful and creative costumes and we just wish that everyone could have won! Not only were we able to raise additional funds for the Humane Society of Cambria County, but we also donated $100 per dog or cat adopted from the shelter in October, up to $3,100.


Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank

Food Drive Held at the Johnstown Galleria
May 12th, 2021

Several of our employees had the opportunity to volunteer with the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank - which serves our local food pantries in Cambria and Somerset Counties.

The food bank, alongside Feeding America, hosted a food drive at the Johnstown Galleria between 12:00 and 2:00 pm. Six employees of Spangler Subaru plus a local Subaru ambassador teamed up to man two loading stations. In all there were twelve separate stations helping 1,100 families not go hungry. About 900 cars, coming from both Cambria and Somerset counties, would enter the lines hungry and leave with 50 pounds of food. This included fresh produce, frozen meats and protein, and dry grains.


Family Reindeer Mini-Sessions

November 21st, 2020

In a year of shutdowns and health conscious decisions, it was a nice treat to have the reindeer back for another photoshoot. Once again we raised funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, our Share the Love partner.

WhatMiaSaw Photography captured these magical moments with the reindeer, provided again by Spruce Run Farm. We supplied the original backdrop for the photoshoot. In all, we raised $3,300 for our partner charity.


Family Reindeer Photo-Sessions

November 16th, 2019

It was a day to remember when we hosted two live reindeer on our dealership parking lot! The reindeer, bred by Spruce Run Farm, hung around patiently while families visited and got professional photography taken by Phil Balko. Families reserved and paid for mini-session slots with all proceeds from the sessions benefitting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Western PA & WV Chapter. This was our way of kicking off the 12th annual Subaru Share the Love Event and helping out our local charity even further. We raised $3,119 for LLS.

October 27th, 2019

We had another successful Pet Trick or Treat at Windber Recreational Park this year during Subaru Loves Pets!

Along with the costume contest, we hosted a basket party, Charlie & Friends brought doggy carnival games, and Pause for Paws provided the treats to be handed out during trick or treating. This is such a wonderful event and we can't wait to host it again next year!


Quemahoning Trail Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

July 31st, 2019

As a part trail-construction sponsor and friends of LHORBA, we had the honor of attending the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Quemahoning Trail. The 17-mile circuit runs its course around the Quemahoning Dam and was commissioned by the Stonycreek - Quemahoning Initiative. The trail had multiple organization contributing in many ways, including the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies who contributed the largest amount financially, the Laurel Highlands Visitors Bureau, DCNR, Hoganas who allowed part of the trail to bypass through the plant's property, and LHORBA who provided many volunteers to help create the trail. We love our outdoor recreation and we are thrilled to contribute to sustainable projects in our area.
