Newest Gold Corporate Sponsor Lends Helping Hands - Keith F

Last year the Westmoreland Yough Trail Chapter of the Great Allegheny Passage lost a gold corporate sponsor. The chapter also lost all its fund raisers due to the pandemic. This was at a time when the trail probably had its greatest number of users. Despite the loss of funds, there was still about twelve miles of trail to maintain which included purchasing new equipment, maintaining and fueling the equipment, and finding new replacement workers. Some area chapters may have more populated and affluent communities to help them, but our chapter will take our dedicated trail members and fantastic corporate sponsors any day of the week. For example, Kenny Ross Subaru became our new corporate sponsor and their financial contribution was more than welcomed. They also had their employees and family members spend a day last fall and this spring working on the trail. Kenny Ross also participated in our trail appreciation day by having employees hand out bottled water to trail users. But it doesn't end there. Kenny Ross Subaru intends to continue with their financial help, participate in our fund raising activities, and send work parties to help with trail maintenance. With the continued support of Kenny Ross Subaru, the Westmoreland Yough Trail Chapter of the Great Allegheny Passage will continue to be a safe, secure, and family friendly place to enjoy nature when walking and riding.

Support to Norwin Area Meals on Wheels - Joyce M

Kenny Ross Subaru dealership and their employees have provided assistance in our time of need. Before we received their help we were struggling to meet our goal of maintaining a $5.00 charge for our meals. Thanks to their financial support through the Share the Love campaign, Norwin Area Meals on Wheels has, over the past two years, been able to maintain the cost that we charge our meal recipients. Effective July 2021 we are now able to reduce this charge by 20%, resulting in a savings of up to $20.00 per month to those who receive meals daily. In addition to their financial support, Kenny Ross Subaru employees regularly volunteer delivering meals with a friendly smile and conversation to our recipients who often have no other visitors. Our partnership with Kenny Ross Subaru has benefited not only our organization but also the Norwin community. We are truly grateful for their continuing support.

Shop with a Cop - Stephen L

I was blessed to be contacted by Carly Painter at our local Kenny Ross Subaru dealership. She notified me that Kenny Ross is dedicated to helping out locally and inquired about our charity. She later told me that Kenny Ross would be willing to assist law enforcement take children of unfortunate circumstances shopping. Carly, the owner and other employees came to the store and not only did they help officers take children shopping, but they picked up the ENTIRE tab that day which was well over $10,000! That was 3 Christmases ago. It was truly a Christmas miracle for all of us!!! To this day we have continued with that partnership. I am impressed with the Kenny Ross Staff at how gracious they are with their time, how generous with their donations, and how dedicated they are to giving locally. Hundreds of children were able to have a better Christmas because of them, and I look forward to working with them in the future to provide a better Christmas for hundreds more!

Bataan Memorial March Donation - Shaylie C

Each year, the Junior ROTC Unit at my high school hosts a Bataan Memorial March, an event which raises money for a veteran-centered charity while simultaneously memorializing those who walked in the Bataan Death March in 1942. This year, the charity we are donating to is called Mission 22, which focuses primarily on veteran mental health. For the second year in a row, the Subaru dealership close to our school has donated $300 to our cause. As the head cadet assigned to this event and with family in the service, I know how impactful and important any amount of money can be towards a cause such as this. Having local support for our event is a great thing, and is beyond appreciated every year.

Kenny Ross Cares about Kids at Christmas! - kelly D

The McKeesport Agape Center collects and delivers food to neighbors in need. Often times those who need food the most lack access to traditional food banks because they do not own cars so they can't get to them. We are a 100% volunteer non-profit who focuses on fighting hunger. We began our work at the beginning of Covid 19 when even neighbors with cars became shut in due to health concerns with the virus. We deliver food to hundreds of families locally per week. This Christmas the McKeesport Agape Center is providing Christmas to 424 families. We are calling it "The BIG M.A.C. Christmas." Thank you to Kenny Ross Subaru for providing gift bags and wrapping paper for us this holiday season! We are very thankful for your giving spirit. Kelly Doyle, Executive Director The McKeesport Agape Center.

Saving Jeffery! - Courtney N

Jeffery is a 2 year old border collie that was brought in from Kentucky with an unknown past. He was brought in on transport and went direct to his adopter. His adopter was in love with him before she even met him. Unfortunately, shortly after arriving Jeffery collapsed on a walk and had to be rushed to the emergency vet. After a quick exam Jeffery was rushed to a specialist emergency vet where he had to stay overnight and was given an MRI in the morning. It was discovered that Jeffery had a spinal stroke. This could have been due to previous trauma to the spine that left a fragment floating around. He had lost the ability to walk and go to the bathroom on his own. Luckily, his adopter was dedicated and stuck through this tough time with Jeffery. She had only known this dog for a short 24 hours but did not waiver for a second at the challenge of supporting him through this and getting him back to walking and relieving himself. As a rescue a vet bill this large can be very daunting but with the support of Subaru, we didn’t have to think twice about doing everything we could to save this boy and give him his happily ever after. After seeking another specialist and a few weeks on in-home care Jeffery is making great progress and has been wagging his tail and happy to see his Mom throughout the whole process. Jeffery could not have found a better forever home! Within the next few weeks, he is expected to make a full recovery!

Kenny Ross cleans up Youghiogheny Bike Trail - Carley P

The Kenny Ross Subaru Service team spent last Saturday afternoon cleaning up trash along the Youghiogheny Bike Trail. The 150-mile trail, part of the 333-mile Great Allegheny Passage, is maintained and promoted exclusively by volunteers belonging to a Trail Council or Chapter of the Regional Trail Corporation. With united effort, volunteers are responsible for keeping the trails in operable condition for runners, walkers and most notably cyclists. During the Kenny Ross cleanup, an estimated 200 pounds of trash was collected, from cans and bottles to furniture and clothing. An environmentally friendly activity, the afternoon also increased safety along the trail. Team members assisted with cleaning rock debris on the trail right of way, a product of recent heavy rains. Thanks to the efforts of the Kenny Ross Subaru Service team, and our youngest cleanup supervisor Ben, the Youghiogheny Bike Trail is clear of trash and safe for enjoyment for seasons to come!

Kenny Ross Aids Cancer Center for 4th Year - Breanna S

Through their fourth annual “Subaru Loves to Care” partnership with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), Kenny Ross Subaru recently made a heartwarming impact on local cancer patients and the dedicated nurses and medical professionals who care for them. Representatives from the dealership arrived at Arnold Palmer Medical Oncology at Norwin on July 8th with a goal of making an immediate, tangible impact for patients undergoing treatment. One unpleasant side effect of chemotherapy is that some patients constantly feel cold. To make their treatment more comfortable, Kenny Ross donated 80 cozy new blankets. In addition, the dealership gifted 30 arts and crafts kits filled with Crayola products meant for any children receiving treatment or who accompany their parents or family members to appointments. LLS owes a debt of gratitude to everyone at Subaru of America and Kenny Ross Subaru for making this program possible. Thank you for continuing to join LLS in our mission to cure blood cancers and to improve the lives of patients and their families throughout our local communities.

Kenny Ross Cares: Comforting Cancer Patients - Breanna S

Kenny Ross Subaru once again partnered with Arnold Palmer Medical Oncology to donate blankets and messages of hope to cancer patients undergoing treatment in the North Huntingdon/Irwin area. The team at Kenny Ross saw the need to make patients more comfortable during treatment, and worked together in conjunction with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) as part of the “Subaru Loves to Care” program this summer. The goal of Loves to Care is to help people live healthier lives. The staff at the Arnold Palmer center were excited to receive the 80 blankets, delivered with care by Kenny Ross Subaru General Manager Jimmy Dull. The blankets will be helpful because many patients get cold due to their condition or as a side effect of their medication. Arnold Palmer Medical Oncology is less than 15 minutes from the dealership, meaning that Kenny Ross was able to give this gift to their neighbors in their time of need. All of us at the Western PA & WV Chapter of LLS are extremely grateful to Kenny Ross Subaru and Subaru of America for partnering with us to spread love, hope, and warmth to cancer patients right here in our own hometowns.
