How is Belknap Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve it as well. We are a sponsor of the Easter Seals Land and Lake Poker Run. This annual event raises money to help Easter Seals fund it's numerous programs for Children with special needs, veterans, and others who might need help! This event raises money in a part of the state that really needs help. We are also proud to participate in the Cash for Cans program. This program helps raise money to help feed people in the Lake's Region during the holiday season. We work with Jeffrey Levitan and Jeff Fisher, of the Northeast Radio Group...they are the heart and soul of this effort. We Support Barbara Blinn and her program at Winnisquam Regional High School, the Tilton Dare program and many other smaller groups. Our customers love their pets, and so do we, supporting local shelters, like the NH Humane Society, and offering a pet friendly environment at our dealership. We love the arts and are sponsors of the Winnipesauke Playhouse, and the Interlake's Theater company. This year we have selected Every Child id Ours, a local charity the seeks to make sure no child goes to bed hungry!

Liberty House NH - Bill Z

To Belknap Subaru: Just a brief note to thank the people at Belknap Subaru for their generosity and support of our homeless veterans facility here at Liberty House. Your generosity and concern for our homeless veterans is much appreciated by both the veterans and staff as well. It is encouraging to know that there are individuals such as yourselves that can find it in their hearts to support America's veterans, especially those that have fallen on unfortunate times. In addition to the monetary value, the morale of our veterans also receives a tremendous boost, knowing that people out there who still care about their service and sacrifice. At a time when homeless veterans are rock-bottom on America's priority list, you should be very proud of your decision to come to the assistance of some very needy and forgotten people here at Liberty House, many of whom are quiet and unassuming combat veterans. Once again our most heartfelt gratitude, and be rest assured that your compassion and concern for our homeless Veterans will not be forgotten. We at Liberty House consider you as being true allies of ours in our constant battle against homelessness amongst our Veterans. For The Staff and Veterans, Bill Zarakotas Director, Community Relations Liberty House

Love Promise Kept - Christine P

Easter Seals works hard to provide services to communities that are often underserved, or worse, without any services, for those who need it most. We work with families, many of whom are overwhelmed by issues that would be difficult for anyone to handle by themselves. We are there to help them navigate to a better place. Our services include Child Development Centers and Family Resources, Early Supports and Services, Autism Services, Residential & Educational Services, Transportation Services, Camps and Recreation, Community-Based Services, Workforce Development, Military & Veterans Services, Senior Services, and Substance Abuse Treatment. We could not do these things without the support of long-term partners who understand our mission and are willing to help raise the funds that pay for these critical services. Belknap Subaru is a great partner. Mark Johnstone, Scott Ives, and his team can always be counted on to help get the job done. Year after year they have worked on the HK Powersports Land and Lake Poker Run. They run one of the check points…they call it the Pit Stop. It is a place for our participants to register and have some fun. The staff at Belknap Subaru run a barbecue. Hot dogs, smiles, prizes, and games to keep our supporters enjoying the day. As one of our sponsors they have consistently provided financial support and are active participants in the event. Belknap Subaru keeps the Love Promise…and we are extremely grateful to have them as our partners! With Thanks, Christine Pederson Senior Director of Events & Corporate Relations Easterseals New Hampshire, Inc.

Our Community Cares, Every Child is Ours - Lisa D

Share the Love…to us at Our Community Cares, Every Child is Ours, it means my local Subaru Dealer understands the challenges we face. It reminds us that businesses aren’t just there to make money for themselves. It means that when big problems present themselves, good people can make a difference. Hunger is a real problem. It is especially sad when it is a child. As a local organization, we used to spend hours, and hours, of time, trying to raise money to help feed hungry kids! Even after spending a lot of time doing that, we used to have a very limited ability to make an impact. Subaru, and Belknap Subaru changed all that…Our mission is to feed hungry children…it is to provide for those kids in our community who through no fault of their own, have no food in the home. We do that, discreetly, through our local schools. Teachers know who comes to school without food, or without a winter coat, or any number of things we view as essential. Because of Share The Love, and Belknap Subaru, we now have the means to make a big difference. We help kids all over our school district, get the food, and essentials, many take for granted, in a way that does not embarrass, or single out the child. Subaru, and Belknap Subaru are partners we can rely on…and the children we serve, may never know about your generosity, but we do…and we are ever grateful for the difference you make! Gratefully Yours, Lisa and Chuck Drew

Saving EVERY SINGLE ONE! - Charles S

Belknap Subaru and the New England Subaru group have done such amazing things for our community and region and, particularly in the way of caring for pets. New Hampshire Humane Society is one of many organizations in the New England region that has benefitted from Subaru's generosity, compassion, and passion and we wanted to share a story about Buddy and Oliver. Buddy is a very good boy who was hit by a car. A neighbor realized Buddy's owner had left Buddy without care for several days so Buddy ended up with us. He was malnourished, covered in fleas, and his back leg was badly broken. Even in horrible pain, his tail wagged constantly but he needed care. Around the same time, our new little friend Oliver was brought to us. He had been abandoned alone in the basement of an empty house. We found him emaciated, with a badly injured leg, and scared. With our love and care, he is now ready for a new home and loving family. Both of these pets have been saved and rehomed during the Subaru Loves Pets partnership and support from Subaru allows us to continue providing life-saving care. There are so many more pets just like Buddy and Oliver and we want to help EVERY SINGLE ONE! With help from Subaru, we are another step closer.

Greater Tilton Family Resource Center - Michelle L

This evening I was reading numerous write-ups of many of our local community partners to Belknap Subaru who were grateful… and I sit here also thankful for their many contributions to community needs, programs and goals. I think it is no wonder that they have been recognized nationally for the great contributions and outstanding commitment they have shown to our local community. The Greater Tilton Area Family Resource Center and Franklin Area Family Resource Center are the latest beneficiary of their generosity. Our mission is to empower individuals, families and the greater community to wellness and self-sufficiency through community collaborations, education and support. Our programs vary, but our view that everyone needs a little help sometimes is often realized and supported by our being a connector of resources to individuals who could use the help the resource represents. This holiday season, we are excited to say that Belknap Subaru stepped up after a conversation our director had with their ‘director’ (or GM as the position is referred to in the Automotive Dealership world), and cases of blankets were delivered by the Belknap Subaru team for distribution through the community just in time for the cold season to hit our neighborhoods. In the age of COVID-19, it has been difficult to collect needed items to beat the cold because of the concern of community spread. We have not been able to collect and deliver the donated gently used items of the past because of the precautions necessary to protect our community. Having these new blankets meets a great need in our community, and we are very grateful to the team of Belknap Subaru for making this happen. Thank you… while these will provide physical warmth to many, they have also warmed the hearts of staff here as they pass on these blankets to those who will use them. From the Director Michelle Lennon, and our staff of the Greater Tilton and Greater Franklin Area Family Resource Centers
