Amos the Rescue Pup and Johnston’s Subaru: A true Love Promise Story - Kim N

The Johnston’s Subaru crew is nothing short of amazing. They are a group of the kindest people I have met in my 10+ years in Rescue. We just completed our third annual Subaru Loves Pets adoption event at Johnston’s and not only did we have so many successful adoptions, but the donations are going to help sweet Amos get closer to a diagnosis for his condition. His neurologist and cardiologist call him a medical anomaly and he is still in desperate need to have more medical testing, and Subaru is helping to make this possible. Thank you Subaru, from the bottom of our hearts at Barking Back Rescue.

Special Needs Support - Christopher M

Steve Jardine and Johnston's Suburu have been amazing with their support and sponsorship of the Orange County Interscholastic Athletic Association's Tyler Muise MVP Award for many years. Tyler was a special needs student who absolutely loved the sport of football. The school and the players got Tyler involved as the team's manager. Tyler inspired the team with his support and pushed them to work hard and put forth their best effort on the field. But Tyler yearned for more - he wanted to play the game! On a crisp fall Friday night, Tyler's dream came true. The team came up with a special ceremonial play for Tyler and when he took the handoff and powered up the middle of the field, the crowd on both sides of the field was cheering for him. When he broke free and crossed the goal line, the crowd erupted and players from both teams celebrated his touchdown together. It was a moment that stood alone - a moment that made everyone realize how important Tyler and those like him are to not just sports, but to our communities. When the idea for the award to honor special needs students that are involved in athletics was presented to Steve Jardine, he immediately jumped at the opportunity to support it. So many schools have a "Tyler Muise" that love sports and love being involved with teams. The comradery and friendships that are formed translate to acceptance and inclusion of special needs students throughout the school. Johnston's Suburu makes the winner of this award feel incredibly special. They are presented with a trophy and a giant check, and the school also receives a plaque and a donation for their athletic programs. It is a life changing moment for these students, as they now know that they make a difference and matter to their schools and communities. The exuberance on the face of the award winner is worth more than anything. Steve always gives back to the community, but this opportunity opens up another avenue of support for all of our special needs students. We are so grateful to Steve and Johnston's Suburu for their continued support of our programs and their giant footprint in our community. We are so lucky to have them in our corner!

Steve Jardin and Johnstons Subaru Local Champions - Paula B

Jewish Family Service of Orange County New York is proud to nominate Steve Jardin of Johnstons Subaru in Middletown, New York, for his support of the JFS KidsConnect Program. For the past eleven years Jewish Family Service of Orange County KidsConnect respite program has supported local Orange County New York families of children with disabilities. The two-week hiatus, between summer school ending and the school year beginning in late August, is one of the most challenging times of the year that families have limited options for support, respite, childcare, and supervision for their children. That is exactly when KidsConnect springs into life, welcoming children with varying levels of ability, to a supportive and fun, camp-like experience situated centrally in Middletown, New York on the grounds of Braeside Camp. KidsConnect is alive with engaging activities including modified sports, music, art, swimming and more, staffed with Special Education educators, paraprofessionals, social workers, and volunteers. Historically, KidsConnect was created with the full support of a large private grant, specifically geared for programs for children with special needs. When the funding dried up JFS turned to the local community and other resources to find funding to continue providing this essential service. This privately funded program did transition to depend primarily on the Medicaid waiver which paid for some of the participants who qualified, however this funding does not provide for all participants who needed this program. Since 2016, Steve Jardin and Johnston Subaru has “Shared the Love” by contributing almost $25,000 to help sustain the KidsConnect program, allowing JFS to continue to offer the high-quality camp-like experience for all children needing this support. We are grateful for Steve and his team at Johnstons Subaru for their dedication to supporting agencies and programs throughout Orange County. JFS doors are open to the entire community and relies on national grants and local donations to provide services to children and adults with disabilities and older adults throughout Orange County.

We at Barking Back Rescue are so thankful to Johnston's Subaru and their amazing animal loving staff. Subaru really shares the love for animals in need and goes above and beyond to help. We cannot thank them enough for what they do for us and our pups, from amazing adoption events and donations to Chris helping fly our pups to safety.
