Spangler Subaru Adopts a Highway - Jacob B

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.

161,000 Meter Row Challenge for the Food Bank - Michelle M

During the month of February, a Spangler Subaru staff member hosted an online fund drive benefitting Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. Jacob Biss challenged himself to row 161,000 meters, all the while raising money for the Food Bank. By the end of the challenge, Jacob rasied $1,541 dollars, which can provide up to 7,705 meals for our community members in need. With 1 in 7 individuals in our region facing food insecurity, fundraisers like this one make a big positive impact in the lives of the people we serve. On the behalf of the Food Bank, THANK YOU Jacob for your dedication to our mission!

A Random Act of Kindness finds furever for Panda - Jessica S

In celebration of Random Acts of Kindness Day, Spangler Subaru partnered with the Humane Society of Cambria County to make a special day for a special needs kitten being adopted. Panda was found by college students in poor health in October of last year. As a result of her poor health, Panda was determined to be vision impaired as just a young kitten under 6 months of age. Her special needs never held her back, yet people were hesitant to make that lifelong commitment to her. A long time volunteer, Alyssa, had made a connection with Panda. She waited and waited to see if Panda's furever family was out there. But, after 100 days, Alyssa could wait no longer and decided to give Panda what she was waiting for, a furever family and home! Seeing Panda finally be adopted was special in itself. With the help of Spangler Subaru, the day became even more special! Spangler Subaru sponsored Panda's adoption fee and sent Panda to her furever family and home with food, litter, treats, and toys. Panda, Alyssa, and the Humane Society of Cambria County were so grateful for this random act of kindness. It touched all of us! Panda has now made herself right at home with the help of Spangler Subaru.

Reindeer Photoshoot for Charity - Becca G. - Becca G

On November 19th, 2021, over 30 families came out to Spangler Subaru to participate in the 3rd Annual Reindeer Photoshoot benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Spangler Subaru came up with this amazing idea two years ago, and each year it just keeps getting bigger and better. This year it even sold out! During the struggles of a Global Pandemic Spangler Subaru continues to be a huge supporter for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and The Greater Alleghenies Light the Night event. We cannot thank the whole team at Spangler Subaru enough. They continue to amaze us with the unwavering support to help get us closer to our mission – a world without blood cancers.

Pet Trick or Treat Celebrates Subaru Loves Pets - Jessica V

While we partnered with Spangler Subaru for the month of October in celebration of Subaru Loves Pets, Spangler Subaru helped to highlight adoptable animals from the Humane Society of Cambria County by holding their annual Pet Trick or Treat event. The event helps to promote and directly benefits our shelter. Community members dress up both their pets and themselves to join us at Windber Recreation Park to trick or treat for free and many more activities! Participants may enter different costume contest categories like Most Adorable, Spookiest, and Best Overall for their chance to win a Subaru Swag Bag and a Petco Gift Card. In addition, pet owners and their pets can play carnival games with Subaru Ambassadors or have their picture taken by a professional photographer. Pet Trick or Treat has become a must-attend event for not only pet owners but also our entire community. The Humane Society of Cambria County looks forward to Pet Trick or Treat with Spangler Subaru every year! Each year more people and pets attend, allowing our shelter to reach more potential adopters, fosters, and volunteers as well as allowing our shelter to have more educated conversations about responsible pet ownership. And, each year, the costumes are getting bigger and better! Some of our favorite costumes have included a St. Bernard dressed as Cat in the Hat, a group of dog parents and their dogs dressed as an Under the Sea Theme, and a custom made Cruella de Vil costume with her two dogs dressed as Dalmatians. The event extends to pets beyond just dogs. This year we also had a cat and skunk in attendance. Beyond promoting our animals and services, our shelter simply has a fun time at Pet Trick or Treat. Spangler Subaru donates all proceeds from Pet Trick or Treat directly to the Humane Society of Cambria County. These funds help to make a difference for our animals as we begin to prepare for a hopefully busy holiday adoption season. With the support of Spangler Subaru, the shelter is able to prepare more animals for adoption with vaccinations, testing, microchips, spay or neuter surgeries, and any other needed medications or treatments. In the month of October, 124 vaccines were administered, 63 preventative treatments were given, 15 animals were spayed or neutered, and 10 animals received further medical treatment beyond routine steps. The Humane Society of Cambria County is proud to offer the best care possible for our shelter dogs and cats, and without partners like Spangler Subaru it wouldn't be possible.

On Wednesday, May 12th in Johnstown, volunteers from Spangler Subaru helped load 717 cars with 30 to 50 pounds of food (per share). Each car represented one or more families from the area who may rely on this monthly distribution for food support. The volunteers helped distribute 1,150 shares of food, which totals to approximately 69,000 pounds of food.

On the behalf of Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and the people we serve, thank you so much for your willingness to volunteer.

Night Music @ the Library...to GO! - Patty H

In 2021, the Cambria County Library transformed their annual Night Music at the Library fundraiser into a safe, fun drive through dinner and music streaming event. Spangler Subaru supported this reimagined event as a Quarter Note sponsor, helping to bring this beloved tradition to the library’s friends and donors that have patronized Night Music for the last 16 years. The library was able to deliver 180 dinners and a compilation of 15 local bands for Night Music to GO! Thank you for helping to make this unique event a success!

Spangler Subaru supports Stork Fund - Olivia B

Spangler Subaru recently sponsored the Thrift Fashion Event to help raise money for Stork Fund. Stork Fund is a local charity that financially supports fertility treatments and adoption fees. Without the help of Spangler Subaru, the event would not have happened to raise over $3,000. With Covid-19 making it hard to have successful events, Thrift Fashion Event needed to set itself apart. Spangler Subaru sponsored a beautiful first look reception for the event which drew nearly 100 people with presold tickets guaranteeing the charity would make money. With the generosity of people and businesses like Spangler Subaru, the first Stork Fund awardee baby is due in 2021!

Renzo Finds his Furever Family - Jessica V

Renzo was 1 of 6 adoptable dogs of the Humane Society of Cambria County who participated in our #MakeaDogsDay Adoption Event organized by Spangler Subaru. On Thursday, October 22nd, Renzo visited the dealership in hopes of finding his home after spending 3 weeks at the shelter. While at the dealership he received lots of love and attention, and earned his way into the hearts of 4 Spangler Subaru employees. These women decided to sponsor his adoption fee of $75 to help him find his furever home. And, help him they did. On October 31, Renzo was fortunate enough to go home with his loving parents and dog sister, Rosie. Spangler Subaru made his adoption extra special by providing an adoption kit that included a hand painted Christmas ornament of Renzo. We are so happy for Renzo and his new family, and very grateful for the assistance of Spangler Subaru in creating this happy ending.
