Care For The Most Vulnerable In Our Community - Nikki M

The donation of nearly 100 thermal, water resistant blankets from Yark Subaru will have a lasting impact on Cherry Street Mission Ministries and individuals experiencing homelessness. We can rest assured that should an emergency occur, like the usual cold weather we can expect in Northwest Ohio, we can respond to it.

Supporting Outdoor Experiences for All! - Ally E

Yark Subaru is a truly incredible community partner! Thanks to Yark Subaru’s support, Metroparks Toledo was able to build the incredible Cannaley Treehouse Village, which opened to the public this year. The Treehouse Village is an entirely unique outdoor experience that includes overnight and daytime experiences within a six-person, a four-person and two two-person treehouses plus three tent platforms. The Village provides a close, safe and unique experience in nature, which has become even more important during these times. But that’s not all! In addition to helping fund the treehouse construction, Yark Subaru has provided support for our summer campers to experience the Village each year and for outdoor activities, like the Outdoor Expo. Yark Subaru is an incredible partner in helping us engage our community with high-quality outdoor experiences. We are grateful!

Yark Subaru helps PPI Save Lives - Doy D

There are two things Planned Pethood, Inc knows for sure. First, in a year of unprecedented hardship and struggle, the vast needs of homeless cats and dogs are amplified. Second, we can always count on the help and support of Yark Subaru. Period. When the phone call came from Dave Boehm telling us that we had been selected to benefit from the October Yark Loves Pets event, we were beyond thrilled, honored and THANKFUL! This kind of support energizes us. It confirms that we're doing the right thing, that our mission is important. And that we're being heard. The help of Yark Subaru allows us to bring in a dog like Ziva (pictured), a puppy who was paralyzed in her back legs due to an injury and would need the help of our experts. The help of Yark Subaru allows us to bring in pregnant dogs and cats that will require extensive care and vetting. The help of Yark Subaru allows us the luxury of being able to provide proper training to dogs with behavior issues. We can never and will never take this help and support for granted. We will continue to strive to be the best partner we can possibly be.

Always Above and Beyond for Animals x 2 - Doy D

Year after year, Yark Subaru has shown the love when it comes to supporting Planned Pethood in its mission. 2019 was a big year for PPI, and Yark Subaru was by our side every step of the way. Our annual Paw Hoorah was the best ever (seriously....what a party!), much in part because of the corporate support we receive. On top of that list sits the name of Yark Subaru. Their donation is generous and their participation enthusiastic. They don't just send a check. They attend, they enjoy and they spend! 2019 offered a second opportunity to help us out. This year marked 40 years that Planned Pethood has been advocating spay and neuter as well as finding forever homes for dogs and cats. Throwing a party for the community was a no-brainer....we had to! But, again, we needed help. Without a hesitation, Yark was 100% yes. AGAIN, always there for us. The best! Thank you!

Yark Subaru Loves Animals - Charley L

Toledo Animal Rescue was thrilled to be invited to Yark's October Pet Adoption Event. 2018 has been a year full of change for the Rescue. We updated our brand and reached out to several businesses like Yark to help get the word out about Toledo's oldest, most-respected NO-KILL rescue. Our goal is to make sure Toledo and the surrounding areas think of our Rescue FIRST when considering pet adoption or the surrendering of an animal. We value all our sponsors, donors, volunteers, and local animal supporters! We thank Yark for the opportunity to meet your team and your customers. We were only there for a few hours, but several people and their rescue dogs stopped by to see us! We look forward to future partnerships opportunities. Without businesses like YOU, it wouldn't be PAWssible.

Yark Subaru supports fitness community in Toledo - Phil C

Team Toledo Triathlon Club was established in 1985 to promote multi-sport and fitness. The club has grown over the years to be one of the largest triathlon clubs registered with USA Triathlon. Our current membership tallies 300+ triathletes competing locally and worldwide in anything from 5k runs to Ironman Triathlons. Our club also has the proud distinction of being the USA Triathlon Mideast Regional Champions for 8 of the last 10 years. Each year Team Toledo hosts around 20 open water swims. These swims are easily one of the most recognized and well-attended fitness events in the greater Toledo area. Each swim sees an average of 80-100 athletes offers multiple distances to accommodate both new and veteran swimmers. Our Club works very hard to create a safe and friendly environment for new and veteran athletes alike. We provide several lifeguards, instruction and lots of encouragement and comradery at every event. This unique offering consistently draws athletes from all over our region. In 2017 Yark Subaru stepped up to become the title sponsor of our swims and returned to sponsor us again in 2018. This sponsorship covers our club's total expenses related to hosting each swim. This has been a tremendous help to our club. It allows us to keep our membership costs low, making our club affordable and one of the best fitness values around. With this sponsorship, we have been able to offer more swims in more and new locations making our events more accessible to our community. These funds are a double win four our community as most of Team Toledo's expenses are to our public parks where we hold our events. Our parks can in-turn use these funds to offset the cost of water treatment, lifeguards and other expenses related to the care and maintenance of the grounds. The entire membership of Team Toledo is extremely grateful for Yark Subaru's continued support. This sponsorship has improved our ability to give back to our members and the community as we attempt to inspire people to get out and get active. THANK YOU YARK SUBARU!!!

Racing for Recovery - Todd B

This picture is of 5 people (and Todd Crandell), that we pay for (because of the kind donations of amazing organizations like Yark & Subaru) to have lodging and be involved in our program. These people recently traveled to southern Ohio to cheer on Todd Crandell as he completed another Ironman Triathlon. Some of the comments that were made during the weekend trip: -"I have not felt this good in over 10 years!" -"My father said he has not heard me sound this happy in a very long time" -"I want to participate in a triathlon now" (made by 3 of the people) Every donation that we receive goes back to helping the people that walk through our doors to have a better experience in their time involved at Racing for Recovery. We would not be able to do what we do at the level that we are, without the very kind and generous donations that we have received from both Yark and Subaru. Our next big goals are: -to be able to have a house that we can keep people in (instead of putting people up in a hotel). -complete a total renovation and upgrade all fitness equipment at our facility. -to acquire an endless pool (a treadmill for swimming) so that more people can train and achieve their goals of completing an Ironman also. Racing for Recovery simply aims to help everyone see that "With Sobriety, Anything is Possible"! Thank you!

It's a Small World - Kerri P

You could almost hear "It's a Small World" as connections were made during Yark Subaru's visit to ProMedica Hospital in Toledo. While delivering blankets, craft kits and notes of support our Northern Ohio LLS staff met patients and their families who were grateful for the support provided by so many. One patient had been recently diagnosed with leukemia and her son, an anchorman from the CBS affiliate in Fort Worth, TX was there to support her. Back in 2016, he had participated in a Team in Training event raising more than $500,000 for the mission of LLS. A small world indeed. It is an honor to partner with Subaru of America and Yark Subaru each year. Their commitment to making their community a better place allows us to further our impact in the greater Toledo area. Thank you for caring, Yark Subaru!

I honesty feel that if Planned Pethood needed anything, Yark would be there for us.They have, without hesitation, supported our annual fund raiser,the Paw Hoorah, since its inception.

Yark Subaru Hosts Pet Adoption Event with LC4 - Gabby V

We were extremely grateful and appreciative for the opportunity to display a few of our adoptable dogs at the Yark Subaru Adoption Event. As the municipal shelter in Lucas County, there is often times a stigma or reputation for our department to be very "rough", so when we are given the chance to showcase our great adoptable dogs and interact with members of the community, it does wonders for both our dogs, staff, volunteers, and department as a whole. Since we operate in a shelter, our dogs are normally seen in kennels. This setting is extremely stressful for dogs, so they react differently when they are in a kennel and do not always have the opportunity to show their wonderful, loving personalities. Being able to bring some dogs to Yark Subaru is a tremendously important way for our dogs to socialize outside of the shelter and meet new people. It allows the dogs to relax, decompress, and simply enjoy the company of humans. "Pit bull type dogs" are often judged based on their appearance and reputation so to see a family smiling from ear to ear and enjoying the dog for who they are on the inside. Each dog is an individual and being able to showcase their true colors in a friendly, welcoming setting can truly be life changing for these shelter dogs. We are so thankful for Yark Subaru hosting these adoption events and allowing us to share our story and help find our dogs a loving, forever home.

Yark Subaru Supports Reynolds Elementary - Bill H

The staff and students at Reynolds Elementary are thrilled that Yark sponsored us for the Subaru Loves Learning event. The school supplies that were donated go along way to support our students who struggle to provide all the items they need for school and also helps relieve some of the burden from our teachers who often donate their own supplies to support their classrooms. These supplies have already been put to use in our clubs for art projects and crafts. Community partners like Yark and Subaru and the donations you have supplied help further our students' education, engage them in their classes and brighten their days. For this, we are so thankful!

The Maumee Valley Wheelmen Thank Yark Subaru! - Nick M

Yark Subaru was one of the first business to step up and sponsor the Maumee Valley Wheelmen this season. With Yark Subaru's support, the Wheelmen were able to bring back a competitive race team to the Northwest Ohio area. The 2016 season was a great success for the team and included multiple podium appearances in road, mountain, gravel, cyclo-cross, and even fat-bike races. We also could not have hosted the annual Sylvania Cycling Classic without Yark Subaru's support. This race brought racers and fans across the region together for a full day of racing in downtown Sylvania. The event enjoyed the largest turnout in its 6-year history! Again, the Maumee Valley Wheelmen would like to thank Yark Subaru for their support to the club and local community. We couldn't have done it without you! Respectfully yours, Nick Mossing.

Yark Subaru is a proud sponsor of Cooper, a 4 year old Yellow Labrador from Green Bay, Wisconsin. Cooper stared off his Dock jumping at the early age of 10 weeks, when he jumped off the dock at Boyne Mountains in Michigan Deer Lake. Since that time, Cooper has enjoyed many activities including running ahead and leading the group on mountain bike rides, sunrise runs up the ski area, and running along side me as I ski! His favorite is when we go to the Ultimate Air Dogs Dock Jumping events. During the work week Cooper can be seen greeting customers at the door of Mountain Man Sports in Toledo, Ohio with a wag and a smile. Cooper's my best friend! Cooper and our family enjoy owning Subaru's and especially traveling between Michigan and Colorado. We have owned 6 Subaru's total: 4 Outbacks, a 2002 WRX with 298,000 miles on it which I have not passed on to my son Andy in Colorado, and my own personal favorite ride is my 2008 Subaru STI.

Recycling Event at Yark Subaru to Benefit PPI - Nikki M

Yark Subaru has been a long time supporter of Planned Pethood and its mission. In an recent fundraiser, Yark Subaru hosted a recycling event for Planned Pethood. This involved people in the public bringing their unwanted electronic equipment to Yark Subaru. Equipment was donated to Planned Pethood to raise funds for our mission work. The unwanted equipment is recycled rather than taking up space in landfills; leaching heavy metals and chemicals into the soil and ground water. Through this last event we collected almost 1,000 pounds of electronics. With the help of Yark Subaru, our environment is a little better place while raising funds for an animal rescue group (another form of recycling and upcycling).

In January 2014, Yark Subaru of Toledo, OH generously hosted a fundraising event for 4 Paws Sake in order to help Sarge, a neglected White German Shepherd raise money for a hip replacement surgery that he desperately needed. At the young age of 4 years old, Sarge was on pain medicine every day and his hip bones were almost completely disintegrated. The event was a huge success and, thanks to this partnership between Yark Subaru and 4 Paws Sake, I, as Sarge's new mom, am blessed to get to see him happy, pain free, and enjoying life to the fullest as he runs like a puppy throughout his big backyard. I am proud to feel the Subaru Love every single day of my life through the joyful spirit and healthy body of my boy, Sarge. I will be forever grateful! -Nora Solomon (Sarge's mom)
