Johnstons Subaru always helps the surrounding communities. - Christopher L

Johnstons Subaru for the past three years has helped our local fly-in event at Montgomery Airport. This event is a community event that brings in hundreds of people and families from all over. Even though it is all about aviation and not cars, Johnstons still sponsors this event by buying all of the food. They are definitely NOT JUST a car dealer! Thank you guys!!

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. Post-Covid times have caused more suffering for animals and the rescues struggling to help them, thank you Johnston's for continuing to support our efforts through it all.

Customer Service - Mike T

I picked up my Subaru Outback and you would think I bought a house in Key West. What a great customer experience I received from Johnstons. This is my 1st Subaru and the staff was more excided them me through the whole process. Even the GM Chris was out in the showroom talking and joking with us and other customers. It felt like we were buying a car from family. Thank you Johnstons Subaru!

Leading kids in the right direction. - Francis S

Young Warriors Boxing Team Academy in Middletown, New York is helping to keep kids out of trouble and off the street. “You feel down, you feel lonesome, you want to talk to somebody, I’m here.” Francis Santiago founded the Boxing Team in 2016 as a way to incorporate his passion for the sport with his desire to help the young kids in the community. Coach Paco, as he is locally known, strives to keep kids off the street and out of trouble. While learning the skills necessary to box, they are also learning life skills such as respect and discipline. He tells his students that many great boxers succeeded because they found a good coach, “someone who led them the right way.” Coach Paco is strict with his students about doing well in school and is in contact with their teachers. He stresses the importance of eating well and staying off drugs. With the generous donation of $40,425.00 from Subaru of America and Johnstons Subaru, Young Warriors Boxing Team Academy can continue to provide kids with a safe place to spend their time after school. New equipment, clothing, shoes as well as travel expenses were all costs that previously were funded out of pocket by Santiago himself. Coach Paco has also paid for many of the children’s basic needs, feeding them when they come to the gym hungry, buying books needed for school as well as clothes and sneakers. Christine Brinckerhof of the Middletown Parks and Recreations has provided the Boxing Team with a space to practice. The Parks and Recreation Center will soon be moving to a new location, sharing a space with the Middletown Police Academy. This community involvement, along with the partnership with Subaru of America and Johnstons Subaru, has given Coach Paco the support he needed to continue to help the local youth become good citizens and students, and perhaps a few good athletes as well!
