Food Bank - Johnstown Food Distribution - Michelle M

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. It is thanks to your efforts that we are able to continue to meet the need of individuals in Johnstown and surrounding areas who need food assistance. On the behalf of Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and the people we serve, thank you so much for your willingness to volunteer.

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!

On November 21, 2020, over 20 families came out to Spangler Subaru to participate in the 2nd Annual Reindeer Photoshoot. Spangler Subaru came up with this amazing idea last year and with all of its success, we knew we had to do it again in 2020. Even during a Global Pandemic Spangler Subaru continued to be a big supporter for the Western PA/WV Leukemia and Lymphoma Society/Greater Alleghenies Light the Night. We appreciate their dedication to helping LLS get one step closer to our mission - a world without blood cancers.

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.

Spangler Subaru Drives Books into Hands of Kids - Kerri B

With a generous donation of 150 science books to The Learning Lamp in October, Spangler Subaru displays they stand behind their goal of making the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible as part of their Subaru Loves Learning initiative, a component of their month-long “Subaru Loves to Care” campaign. The books, covering a wide variety of topics from ocean exploration to volcanoes, have been distributed to The Learning Lamp's preschool programs across Cambria, Somerset and Bedford counties, inspiring in children a love for books and science. Preschoolers in Richland are thrilled with the books and enjoy carefully looking though them, identifying the photographs, asking a lot of questions and even telling us a story - or two! With the help of community partners like Spangler Subaru, we are lighting the way to a brighter future for children in our community.

Spangler Donations Help Johnstown Cancer Patients - Breanna S

Spangler Subaru wants to show local cancer patients that they aren’t alone in their fight against this terrible disease. So for the third straight year, Spangler partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) on their month-long “Subaru Loves to Care” campaign. On June 14, Forrest Spangler, the dealership’s owner, and General Manager had the opportunity to deliver blankets to patients receiving treatment at Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center in Johnstown, PA. Spangler Subaru generously donated 80 blankets to the facility along with numerous messages of hope. The Conemaugh staff was thankful to receive these blankets because they’re so useful for patients who get cold during treatment. Along with the blankets, Spangler brought heartwarming notes written by Subaru customers, meant to inspire these patients throughout their battle. The experience was moving for all involved, including Angelina, an LLS staff member and blood cancer survivor who was treated at Conemaugh. LLS owes a debt of gratitude to everyone at Subaru of America and Spangler Subaru for making this program possible. Thank you for joining us in our mission to cure blood cancers and to improve the lives of patients and their families throughout our local communities.

For the second year in a row, Spangler Subaru teamed up with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to deliver care packages from their Subaru Loves to Care event to Conemaugh Hospital. LLS Campaign Assistant Angelina Shilcosky, a blood cancer survivor, was able to hand-deliver Spangler’s donation to her own oncologist, Dr. Ibrahim Sbeitan.

These care cards are designed to show patients that, despite never having met, members of their own community wish them well and want them to win their battle against cancer. Spangler generously included 10 arts and crafts kits for children, as well as 80 blankets to make treatment more comfortable for those receiving chemotherapy at the hospital. Many thanks to everyone at Spangler Subaru and Conemaugh Hospital who made this July 6 donation possible.
