The Autobarn Subaru of Countryside Brings Love and Hope to Cancer Patients - Shelby W

This July, the Autobarn Subaru of Countryside team and myself had the pleasure of delivering 80 blankets and 25 arts & craft kits to AdventHealth’s Cancer Institute in Hinsdale, IL as part of Subaru’s Loves to Care program. Items of comfort like these show support and love to their cancer patients as they navigate their diagnosis and treatment journey. Many thanks to everyone at Autobarn Subaru of Countryside for your continued support of LLS’s mission to cure blood cancers and improve the quality of life to patients and their families, and to the Cancer Institute team for all that you do for your patients! We hope these donations make your patients’ days and give hope for a brighter future!

Subaru's Love Promise to Make-A-Wish Illinois - Stephanie E

Autobarn Subaru of Countryside, its owners, employees and customers truly embrace the Share Love Promise, not just during the holiday season, but throughout the year. Make-A-Wish Illinois is extremely proud to be one of the chosen charities for their annual Share the Love promotion. During their 2020-2021 campaign, not only did they raise more than $20,000, but the owner, Gina Fisher, generously MATCHED the amount, for a total of $40,130! In May of 2022, Autobarn Subaru welcomed Wish Child Kyleigh and her father Jim to share in their celebration with Make-A-Wish. Jim shared about Kyleigh’s wish to go to Orlando to visit the theme parks where her favorite characters lived. Kyleigh’s wish experience was incredible. She was able to participate in much more than her parents initially thought. Jim said, “Her wish opened up a world of things for us, things we didn’t even know she was interested in. As a result, we’ve gone back to Florida as a family, because we know now that we can do that with her.” Thank you to everyone at Autobarn Subaru of Countryside and your amazing customers for believing in the power of a Wish! Because of supporters like you, many more children like Kyleigh will soon have their greatest wishes come true.

Thank you Subaru Loves to Help from BEDS Plus Care - Valerie V

A heartfelt thank you to Subaru Loves to Help! The initiative donated four boxes of warm blankets and masks that will be given to clients. Our Street Outreach team also will give the blankets and masks to those experiencing homelessness on the streets this winter. The blankets and masks will be much appreciated by those we serve during the cold winter months, and will help to block the chilly wind. We love our community partners!

Sharing the Love for the Wish Journey - Wendy S

The Autobarn Subaru of Countryside, its owners, employees, and customers truly Share the Love and embrace the power of wish, not just during the holiday season, but throughout the whole year! Make-A-Wish Illinois could not be more grateful for the support of this amazing company. Their support means that even during a global pandemic, Make-A-Wish was able to grant more than 400 life-changing wishes this past year for children in Illinois with critical illnesses. During the Share the Love 2020 Event, so many Autobarn Subaru customers who purchased or leased a Subaru selected Make-A-Wish Illinois to receive the Share the Love $250 donation, that they raised more than $20,000! And Autobarn Subaru of Countryside generously MATCHED the amount raised during the event by its customers!! And at the height of the pandemic when practically all wishes were paused, Autobarn Subaru, its owners and employees, came out in force to celebrate wish child Lyla's birthday with a car parade, presents, and a proclamation from her town that it was Lyla's Day! They truly understand that a wish is not just a fleeting moment in time, but a journey that provides hope, strength and joy to children when they need it most. This is the best Promise that Subaru and Autobarn Subaru can make to the children in our community -- that they will be there to ensure that their wish journey will be a magical experience of discovery and joy. Thank you to everyone at Autobarn Subaru of Country and all of your amazing customers for believing in the power of a Wish!

Odetta the Underdog - Deborah K

Hinsdale Humane Society is proud to share Odetta’s story with our friends at The Autobarn Subaru of Countryside. Odetta came to us from Chicago Animal Care and Control. A 7-year old pit bull with mammary tumors is a true underdog, and one we knew we had to help. There was a 50/50 chance her tumors would be benign. The only way we would know was to remove them. While some were benign, others were cancerous. But thankfully all were removed with clean margins and only a 5% chance of ever coming back. Odetta was a sweet, lovable girl who just needed her second chance at a great life. She found that second chance during Adopt a Dog Month when a family came forward to welcome her into their lives. Thanks to Subaru’s pledge commitments and promotions, we were able to find homes for 50 dogs and 81 cats! We are so grateful for the support we received from Subaru in sharing the message of helping the underdogs. Our thanks to all of you!

Concrete & Subaru - A Rock Solid Friendship - Deborah K

Hinsdale Humane Society and our buddy Concrete would like to thank The Autobarn Subaru of Countryside. Concrete came to us as a stray, his feet covered in concrete from romping through a nearby construction site. He is the biggest, most lovable, goofiest pup, but was having a hard time finding his forever home due to his sheer size. The Autobarn Subaru of Countryside allowed Concrete to visit the showroom, which gave him added attention and visibility from potential adopters in the community. Subaru’s pledge to donate $100 for every dog adopted from HHS during the month of October was beyond generous and allowed us to find homes for 33 dogs, including Concrete. We are so grateful for the support, encouragement and promotion of the importance of adoption. It’s wonderful to have partners in the community like Subaru that care so much about animal welfare!

Make-A-Wish Illinois - Michelle A

Richard and the team at Autobarn of Countryside Subaru have been beyond supportive of our local Make-A-Wish Illinois. We are truly grateful for this partnership and their willingness to make our local chapter their 5th hometown charity. Their willingness to do this allows us to grant life changing wishes for kids like Milo, in the photo attached. Wishes are more than just a nice thing. And they are far more than gifts, or singular events in time. Wishes impact everyone involved - wish kids, volunteers, donors, sponsors, medical professionals and communities. The impact varies. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments. Our corporate partners are an enormous factor in granting these wishes. Thank you, Subaru, for SHARING THE LOVE!

Autobarn of Country Side + AMITA Health Cancer Ins - Michelle M

On July 15, 2019, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Greater Illinois Chapter and The Autobarn Subaru of Countryside had the pleasure of delivering 80 blankets to AMITA Health Cancer Institute and Outpatient Center as part of the Subaru Loves to Care program. These comforting gifts were accompanied by personalized messages of hope written by the customers and staff of The Autobarn Subaru of Countryside. This incredible act of generosity was warmly received by AMITA Health Cancer Institute and Outpatient Center staff who were thrilled to distribute these comforting gifts to their patients. Nursing staff described their patients as “the best around” telling stories of a devoted group of people who support and care deeply for each other and the entire staff. Representatives of The Autobarn Subaru of Countryside also had the opportunity to visit with several patients to personally offer comfort, well wishes,and support. One patient noted that she had just been searching for her favorite blanket which had gone missing, so it was perfect timing to receive this cozy blanket from Subaru. LLS is proud to partner with Subaru to spread hope, love and warmth to those fighting cancer across the country and right here in the Hinsdale, Illinois community.
