Community Volunteer Teams Make a Difference - Liz W

Meals on Wheels of Central Alabama would not be able to serve homebound seniors throughout Jefferson County without strong community partnerships. This October, a group of parishioners from Saint Luke's Episcopal Church stepped up to form a team of volunteer drivers and adopt a route. A lead volunteer will coordinate scheduling and communications within the team to ensure a long-term commitment to serving elderly neighbors in need. At volunteer orientation, the new team met one of Meals on Wheels of Central Alabama's biggest stars--the trust Subaru!

Subaru "Loves to Care" with UAB - Katherine F

On June 10, 2019, the Alabama Gulf Coast Chapter and Jim Burke Subaru had the opportunity to deliver 80 blankets to the O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center at UAB. Upon arriving at the center, I met Danya and Hilary, Corporate Development & Special Events Coordinators. Cherita and Sean from Subaru also met us at the entrance with the blankets. These blankets will be distributed to patients at the cancer center to comfort them in their darkest hours. The O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center was very welcoming. The Cancer Center is the only National Cancer Institute-designated center located in a four-state area which includes Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Arkansas. They treat about 5,000 patients each year. Hilary let us know that many of the patients had been complaining that they were cold because they had actually run low on their stock of blankets at the center. We could tell that this delivery was very appreciated by everyone involved. Thank you to UAB O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center and Jim Burke Subaru, not only for providing and letting us distribute these blankets and messages of hope, but for helping LLS spread its mission to see a cancer free world.

Shelby Loves Subaru - Cassidy P

Jim Burke Subaru has been a valued partner of Shelby Humane Society for more than 6 years. As a non-profit organization, the monetary donations we receive each year obviously make a huge impact on our organization, but Subaru's impact means so much more than that. This partnership is special to us in that this dealership is a county away - yet year after year, in collaboration with the ASPCA, invite us to their location for adoption events that see an increase in adoptions each and every year. Because of this, our reach has grown well past the confines of our county - and Jim Burke Subaru's commitment to Shelby Humane and animal welfare as a whole means so much to our organization and our community. We look forward to continuing this life-saving partnership for many years to come.

Jim Burke "Loves to Care" - Kate M

On August 16th, Jim Burke Subaru reminded our community how much they “Love to Care.” Jim Burke staff pulled up in a beautiful 2019 Subaru Ascent, fully loaded with a special delivery for UAB cancer patients and their families. For the third year in a row, Jim Burke Subaru has partnered with the Alabama chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to deliver beautiful, soft blankets to those in their darkest hours. New in 2017, Subaru realized the need for comfort extended beyond the patients and began sharing art kits filled with markers, crayons, and other supplies to keep the little ones busy while their loved one goes through treatment. Care packages were delivered to UAB’s Young Supporters Board to be distributed to patients being treated in the UAB Cancer Center. Caring is in the very DNA of Subaru, and both LLS and UAB appreciate all they are doing on behalf of cancer patients in our community.

Subaru Delivers Nutrition with a Smile - Trish H

On August 2nd, the Meals on Wheels of Central Alabama’s Subaru Outback delivered goodness in the form of non-perishable food to community seniors. The Meals on Wheels Outback went to Birmingham’s New Pilgrim Baptist Church to pick up food donated by the church to share with seniors in Birmingham’s West End area.Candice Harris, staff member of United Way of Central Alabama and volunteer with Meals on Wheels said, “Over the weekend, the church’s youth group had a crowd of more than 50 kids working together to sort and package bags of food for community seniors. The kids gave to a great cause and had fun doing it.”Thanks to the giving spirit of New Pilgrim Baptist Church, as well as Subaru, the pantries of seniors in Birmingham’s West End are a little fuller today.
