BayPath Elder Services' Meals on Wheels - Allison P

Our Meals on Wheels program would like to thank MetroWest Subaru for a 4th year of partnership during the year end Share the Love Event fundraiser. During Share the Love in 2020, BayPath Meals on Wheels received $6200 that funded our emergency meal distribution before the winter storm season. Each emergency pack holds 7 meals for our consumers to use if Meals on Wheels has to cancel delivery in a storm. The emergency packs provide peace of mind for the seniors who depend on our meals. Over the past four years of Share the Love fundraisers, MetroWest Subaru's support has helped BayPath's Meals on Wheels program to raise $20,644 to support the nutrition needs of homebound seniors in MetroWest. General Manager, VJ Donnelly, and the sales staff have been immensely supportive, welcoming an outreach table at the dealership, hosting a food pantry drive, providing speakers to promote Share the Love, and posing for pictures. They are generous and enthusiastic in their support, and we are so grateful to have them as our partner dealership each year!

Thank you VJ and MetroWest Subaru! - Betsy A

Thank you so much for making a difference to dogs in need with your very generous donation of $3,100.00 on October 4, 2021, as a Paws in the Park sponsor. Your donation will help us immensely with special needs dogs that have extra medical expenses. One such dog is Eileen, a spunky 4-month-old Yorkie mix who came to us missing part of her foot as a result of being attacked by another dog. She needed to be evaluated for a possible prosthesis to protect the remaining part of her foot. Eileen has now been adopted by a wonderful family and is running all over the place in her new prosthesis with her new fur friends. Your donation is so much appreciated! Thank you again for supporting Save A Dog’s mission to rescue and re-home abandoned dogs.

Thank you VJ and MetroWest Subaru!

Golf Tournament Boost for Project Just Because - Barb C

The Tee Up for Project Just Because Golf Tournament was held this week at Hopkinton Country Club. We had to cancel last year's golf due to covid, so this was an important fundraiser for PJB. We reached out to VJ Donnelly to see whether he could offer us a leased car for a hole in one as he had done last year, and his response was enthusiastic and prompt! We immediately started promoting this wonderful addition to the tournament, and it helped us fill our roster for our fundraiser. VJ was great in providing the information needed for our social media and brochure and arranged to have the car there early in the morning. The golfers were very enthusiastic and loved the challenge of getting a hole in one. There's no question that the addition of a car to our golf day raised the bar! We were able to raise over $44,000 for PJB, much needed for the food pantry in this difficult year. Thank you so much VJ and Metrowest Subaru for making a difference. We hope we can do this again next year!

MetroWest Subaru helps dogs in need! - B A - Betsy A

Thank you so much for making a difference to homeless dogs with your very generous donation of $3,100.00 on April 12, 2021, through your Subaru Loves Pets program. In April Save A Dog rescued a beautiful 3-year-old Pomeranian named Thor who had an untreated broken leg. It looked like Thor would need surgery to correct the situation. The orthopedic vet decided to try putting a cast on the leg to see if it would heal without surgery. We would know in a few weeks. Despite Thor’s successful attempts at removing the cast, the leg was miraculously healing! We are so happy that Thor did not need surgery. He has now been adopted into a wonderful, loving home where he is continuing his recovery. We are very grateful to MetroWest Subaru’s dedication and generosity to animals that is helping Thor and other dogs with special needs.

German Shepherd Rescue of New England - Deborah S

December 7, 2020 I am a volunteer for German Shepherd Rescue of New England, and recently contacted VJ Donnelly at MetroWest Subaru in Framingham, MA asking for a donation for an event that we were hosting the first weekend in December to benefit our rescue dogs. Without hesitation in the fulling of the “Share the Love Promise” of Subaru of America, Mr. Donnelly and MetroWest Subaru of Framingham stepped up immediately and generously donated to our upcoming December fundraiser to help our rescue dogs. On behalf of myself and the GSRNE Family we would like to thank you for your friendship and support. Without the generosity of companies like yours we would not be able to do what we do. As long as there are homeless German Shepherd dogs in New England we will be there to help them. On behalf of myself and the GSRNE FAMILY we would like to wish all of you a healthy and Happy Holiday Season! Best, Deborah Saperia, German Shepherd Rescue of New England

A special act of kindness - Barbara G

A special act of kindness.... Back in the early part of the pandemic my car was due for service at Metrowest Subaru. Not only did VJ Donnelly pick up my car but he asked if there was anything, I needed from the local grocery store. At first, I said "no" but thank you (thinking not his job)!!!! Persistent, he emailed me while returning my car to me: "Are you sure you don't need anything?" I succumbed and asked for a few essential things. I will never forget his special act of kindness!!!

The other day, during the covid-19 restriction - Bob W

The other day, during the COVID-19 restriction measures, I found that my 2017 Legacy wouldn't start. I called the MetroWest Subaru service department but didn't want to schedule an app't, just wanted some info. 15 minutes later I received a call from V. J., who confirmed my thoughts: I needed a jumpstart. I told him that I was going to call AAA. Since I was only a few minutes away from the dealership, he volunteered to drive to me himself to jumpstart my car. V. J. is the General Manager of MetroWest Subaru! Their advertising is very effective: I see him in my living room almost nightly. My car started and I followed him back to the dealership for a speedy test and replacement. You can't beat that for service! I'm very happy to own a Subaru and am very glad I bought it at MetroWest Subaru.Thanks, Bob W, Metrowest

MetroWest Subaru Supports Future Automotive Techs - M G

The Waltham High School community and the Career and Technical Education Department are very grateful to MetroWest Subaru for their donation of 40 coveralls for our Automotive Program students. MetroWest Subaru's Service Manager, Michael Koster, is a member of our Program Advisory board, and when he saw the need for coveralls for the students, he worked with the General Manager, VJ Donnelly, to organize a bulk donation to help us continue to provide the best opportunities for the students of Waltham. Our curriculum continues to promote rigorous development of 21st Century skills and career pathway preparation, and we would be unable to do this without the community partnership from organizations like MetroWest Subaru helping to provide meaningful experiences for our students. The donation of 40 coveralls has positively impacted the future aspirations of our Automotive Technology student population, and we are so appreciative of MetroWest Subaru's support of vocational education in our community.

Reading with Woodrow Wilson Elementary School! - W W

MetroWest Subaru is constantly looking for ways to give back to their local Boston-area communities in celebration of the Subaru Love Promise. We embody this in our day to day – helping others find the right vehicles, helping others work their vehicles and of course giving back our time to the community whenever able. One of our core goals in supporting Love Promise is the Subaru Loves Learning program – we aim to make a difference and promote healthy development in today's youth. Whether it’s helping teach children in-need at a local math camp, or supporting the academic institutions and education initiatives in local Boston-area communities such as Framingham and Natick – MetroWest takes the pledge seriously. During Subaru Loves Learning month, MetroWest Subaru partnered with Woodrow Wilson Elementary School in Framingham, Massachusetts for a STEM book donation. STEM education creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators, and these books are not always readily available to schools. Through the stem book donation, MetroWest Subaru helps decrease the burden for the teachers and the literacy coach to supply the students with the materials they need. Specifically, each classroom was able to receive 2-3 different titles based on their learning standards, as well as be offered to the IB primary years program for students working on their Exhibition projects. The Media Center also received books for general checkout to those interested! Woodrow Wilson is also saving a few to gift to individual students as rewards for literacy and math achievement. These are just a few of the ways the school plans to use the books donated – they love the titles, the quality and the quantity of the donation. Thank you to VJ, Angela and the staff of MetroWest Subaru for their dedication to our community.
