Erinn's Wish for a Tree House - Carli C

Nate Wade Subaru was thrilled to team up with Make-a-Wish Utah for their 5th Wish Proclamation! Erinn is 9 years old with a heart condition, she is extremely adventurous and has always wished for a tree house in her backyard. Nate Wade Subaru was able to plan and host a special night for Erinn and her family to escape treatments and hospitals for a bit and celebrate Erinn. The waiting area was transformed into a tree house with balloons, lanterns, blankets and cushions. We had catered dinner, face painting, photo booth, and a story teller that took us on an adventure! The night ended with Erinn finding out her wish for a tree house was coming true! To top the night off, Nate Wade Subaru presented a check to Make-a-Wish Utah for $10,000 to help them continue granting wishes like Erinn's. “Erinn is LOVING her playhouse. She spends every spare minute she can in that little house! One of her favorite things about her Wish Day was the surprise visit from Elsa. She was also surprised that her house had furniture, including a white couch! She didn't think she'd ever have a white couch. The loft is her favorite place to hangout with her sisters and friends right now. We can't thank you all enough for this wonderful gift! She is floating on cloud 9!!” -Jessica (Erinn’s mom)

Pantry Packs for Students - Carli C

Nate Wade Subaru teamed up with Bountiful Food Pantry to provide 3,600 pantry pack meals to students in need. Each weekend, 17,000 kids in the Davis School District go hungry over the weekend when they don't have access to school lunch. Pantry Packs provide up to three pounds of food for these students to eat at home. Nate Wade Subaru was able to give $10,000 to the Bountiful Food Pantry to pay for the supplies and food needed for the pantry packs. Over a three month span, our employees stayed after work to assemble 3,600 Pantry Packs. Not only was it a great team building activity for our employees but a great way to give back to our local community. Thank you Bountiful Food Pantry for providing us with this great service opportunity!

Make-a-Wish Limitless Supercar Shootout - Carli C

Nate Wade Subaru continued their longstanding and impactful support of Make-A-Wish Utah by sponsoring the Limitless Supercar Shootout, which raises funds to grant wishes for children with critical illnesses. This is a one-of-a-kind, high-class event that features 40 of the rarest exotic cars in the region attempting to reach top speed while accelerating over a 3-mile stretch of highway. The high speed was over 200 MPH. Because of COVID, the event was closed to the public this year but broadcast via Facebook Live to thousands of viewers. The highlight of the event was that the race care drivers drove by three homes of wish kids and did a honk and wave. The wish families and their neighbors loved seeing the rare cars on display. Nate Wade Subaru’s $10,000 sponsorship was an integral part of the event’s success and helped Make-A-Wish Utah raise more than $60,000 for wishes.

A BIG Thank You to the Salt Lake Health Department - Carli C

The Utah Health Department has been instrumental in Utah's fight against Covid-19. Contact tracers have been working around the clock to find out where Covid-19 is being spread from. These workers have not been receiving the same recognition as the other heroes helping to fight this pandemic. Nate Wade Subaru wanted to make sure that the employees at the Salt Lake City health department knew that we have seen the work they are doing and we appreciate it. Nate Wade Subaru sent in Thirst Drinks, a local company, to treat the employees at the Salt Lake Health Department. Each employee was able to order a customized drink and treat to enjoy! We were able to serve 100 employees drinks and treats and deliver another round of treats to employees at a different location. We appreciate the time and effort these people are putting in to keep the rest of Utah safe!Thank you to the Salt Lake City Health Department for your hard work!

Hartvigsen Students Love to Learn with Subaru! - Hartvigsen S

The Subaru Love of Learning donation of 150 science books has become one of the greatest resources to our school. Because our students have multiple challenges, finding appropriate books to meet all of the student’s interests and reading abilities can be difficult. From the very beginning, the Subaru team worked with our school to make sure the right books would be purchased. Subaru sent a list of the books and their descriptions for our Teachers to review and determine what would work best with the students. Books with large pictures and limited vocabulary were selected by our Elementary Teachers. One favorite book is A House in the Sky: And other Uncommon Animal Homes. The Speech Therapist and theTeacher use this book with the class to teach the definition of what is a home and how it relates to Thanksgiving and family. The Secondary Teachers are using a variety of books; Trash Revolution, Bug Lab For kids, and What Do They Do with All That Poo? These help to support the functional academics of our educational program. Many of our students have jobs around the school to recycle, take care of plants, and promote hygiene programs. The Teachers use these books to teach basic vocabulary and create activities to engage our students across a variety of settings. Again, we have nothing but gratitude to Carli Claflin and the crew from Subaru. It has been great participating in the Subaru Love of Learning for the past two years. The books are beautiful and greatly appreciated. Subaru, We Love You!

This assembly has the ability to change lives, we have already heard many stories from parents, teachers, and students about how the assembly impacted them directly. Nate Wade Subaru is proud to be part of the effort to bring this organization to Utah school's because it is definitely needed. It's about doing something bigger than all of us in our community, and addressing the roots of suicide, exclusion, dropping grades, isolation and violence in schools: bullying. Everyone in these assemblies pledged to be an UPstander (instead of a bystander) and act more inclusive and respectful!

Delivering Love, Hope & Warmth to Cancer Patients - Stacie K

On July 8th members of the Nate Wade Subaru team came together with staff and volunteers from The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to bring love and warmth to the patients at Huntsman Cancer Institute in the form of blankets, craft kits and notes of encouragement. Jen Murano of the Huntsman Foundation remarked, "this is perfect timing, we just ran out of blankets and our patients love receiving the Subaru/LLS blankets, they are so beautifully packaged and the notes of encouragement that come with them lift their spirits.” After snapping some pictures at the entrance of the hospital Nate Wade employees, LLS staff, and volunteers headed into the infusion center to pass out blankets to patients receiving treatment. “It was heartwarming to see how caring the Nate Wade staff was to each patient. They brought smiles and a few laughs to many of the patients” said Stacie Kulp, Executive Director of the LLS Utah chapter. The team cheerfully passed out blankets in the infusion center and you could see a change in patient’s demeanor's and lightening of moods. The warmth in the room was palpable. The hospital staff expressed how much this annual delivery means to them and their patients. Blankets may seem like a small gesture to people who are not dealing with cancer treatment, but to the patients at the hospital the blankets mean so much more than warmth. In the infusion center alone, almost all the 80 blankets donated were given directly to patients in need; showing just how timely this donation was! All of us at LLS are so grateful to partner with Nate Wade Subaru. We thank them for their willingness to help others including local cancer patients and LLS in our efforts to end blood cancer.

Nate Wade Subaru Sponsors Utah Honor Flight - Carli C

Utah Honor Flight’s mission is to transport Utah’s Veterans to Washington DC to visit those memorials dedicated to honor the service and sacrifices to themselves and to their friends. Utah Honor Flight is a non-profit organization created solely to honor Utah’s Veterans for all their sacrifices.Nate Wade Subaru donated $30,000.00 and fundraised another $10,000 in the community to sponsor a flight of local Utah Vietnam Veterans on November 9-11, 2017. The Utah Honor Flight received countless emails and phone calls after this flight from the Veterans, their families and friends recounting stories from this flight and the changes that were made in the lives of these men after this experience. Many of them have said this is the welcome home they never received and that they finally feel like they have “returned home from Vietnam”. These flights impact the community by giving these men and women the thank you that so many of them have never received and gives them closure from the memories of war that they have fought so hard to suppress by giving them new memories and friendships developed during these flights.
