Sharing Warmth - Christine L

Subaru of America teamed up with Beantown Blankets to provide warm, weather resistant blankets for the local homeless shelters. We chose to make our donation to Crossroads Shelter in Portsmouth, NH. We knew our store was moving to Portsmouth only a few short weeks after the scheduled donation time, and our whole staff thought it was important to pick a shelter in our new hometown. We were able to deliver 80 blankets to our local families in need! We look forward to continuing to support our Portsmouth community.

Make A Wish New Hampshire - Christine L

McGovern Subaru partnered with the New Hampshire chapter of Make A Wish this December, with a goal to stuff an Outback full of toys for local NH children! Christine Loan, Sales Manager, coordinated with Libby Giordano, Director of Seacoast Development in a joint effort to help as many children as possible. To date, this has been by far our most successful toy drive! We look forward to continuing to partner with Make A Wish and helping any way we can.

Sharing The Love, Even Through Adversity - Christine L

This year has been full of unexpected surprises for all of us. McGovern Subaru takes pride in our annual donation to the New Hampshire SPCA, and we LOVE going to visit the staff and adoptable animals at the shelter when we make our annual donation. Unfortunately, the Covid pandemic had other plans. Through Share the Love, McGovern Subaru raised $12,000 and collected dozens of donations including new pet parent kits for the SPCA! Unfortunately, all in-person communications were on hold this year, so we weren't able to host our typical event. With generous help from Subaru of New England, we were able to expedite the donation funds directly to the shelter when they needed it most at the end of March! In a time of so much uncertainty, we are proud to be able to continue to support our local community so that we can all thrive as one.

McGovern Loves to Care - Christine L

At McGovern Subaru, we decided it was important to bring theentire team together at the dealership and discuss which charities we feltwould be a good fit for our part in the Subaru Love Promise initiative. For2019, we collectively agreed to stay with the SPCA as we have in years past,but this year we also decided that partnering with the Leukemia and LymphomaSociety was important to us. We partnered with Portsmouth Regional Hospital’sCancer Care Center where we were lucky enough to meet some of the patients andstaff and get to hear what their lives are like on a day to day basis. We delivered blankets, care cards from our staff andcustomers and lots of well wishes to the patients in the hospital. This was byfar one of the most fulfilling initiatives we have been lucky enough to partnerwith, and sincerely look forward to joining them again next year.

Charity Dog Wash - Christine Loan L

McGovern Subaru is a team committed to improving the community, and that includes pets, too! Thanks to the dedication of our staff,members of all departments volunteered to work on a hot Sunday in August where we hosted our 2nd annual Charity Dog Wash. Through social media marketing alone, we had nearly 100 guests visit the dealership to participate in the dog wash! In addition, we collected several boxes of donations and over$600 in cash for the New Hampshire SPCA. The event has drawn in an incredible amount of positive feedback from our community, and we plan to continue this Charity Dog Wash for many years to come!

McGovern Loves to Care - Christine L

McGovern Subaru, along with Subaru of New England, was fortunate enough to partner with Portsmouth Regional Hospital as part of the Subaru Loves to Care project. We delivered blankets to the hospital to comfort and aide the patients as they fought to go through Leukemia and Lymphoma treatments. It was a heartwarming endeavor as we were able to deliver the blankets and come face to face with the hard-working staff at PRH who work so hard daily to keep their patients comfortable and happy while they go through their difficult journeys to recovery. This program will stay in the hearts of the staff at McGovern Subaru as we continue to work on our charity efforts moving forward.

McGovern Helps the New Hampshire SPCA - Christine L

When McGovern Subaru was given the opportunity to join Subaru to raise money and awareness for the New Hampshire SPCA, we could not wait to get on board! With a dealership filled with animal lovers, this was a case that hit home for most, if not all, of the employees at McGovern Subaru. Through the combined efforts of our sales staff diligently spreading awareness of our promotion, as well as the advertising backing from Subaru of New England and a generous sponsorship from the owner Matt McGovern, we were able to donate a check for $15,000 to the New Hampshire SPCA! Though the funds were so exciting to deliver, a close second best “moment” of Subaru Loves Pets initiative was the adoption event held right in our dealership. The dog they brought on site, Spike, an elderly Rottweiler was adopted the same day to a family in Maine. The Love Promise initiative sparked our interest in even hosting a dog washing event where we raised additional money for the SPCA. It has started a whole new interest in charity work for our employees, and they have carried the Love Promise message and made it their own. I am proud to say we are back in the Subaru Loves Pets initiative for 2018 and are well on our way to setting up our second on-site adoption event, and another large donation to the New Hampshire SPCA.
