Partnership is a success - Darren H

After 29 years in the Automotive business some moments have stood out more than others and our partnership with Meals on Wheels of Jamestown is one of them...you see back in 2013 Shults Subaru partnered with MOW of Jamestown to support the local charity and the service it provides to those in need. Fast forward a couple years later and I was asked by Barrie Yochim the Director if I would be interested in joining the Board of Directors to which I gratefully accepted. After joining the board and having the opportunity to engage with the recipients (mostly senior citizens) of the meals as well as other board members my eyes where opened to the commitment Meals on Wheels made for our local community. Each December during the Share The Love campaign Barrie made it possible for us to physically deliver the meals and be a part of the process in seeing the faces of those who receive them...I decided that bringing my children along to see the dynamics of those in need and the impact Meals on Wheels made in our County, they were more than helpful and loved to be there to see the smiling faces of those we delivered to. Each year during the Share the Love our dealership Subaru team put in 110% effort to help the MOW overall charity be successful and after 9 years of supporting this great campaign we are proud to know that our Share the Love contribution total is $122,028.42...we are so proud to a part of Meals on Wheels Jamestown community commitment and recently after serving for a handful of years on the Board of Directors I was nominated to be the Board President to which I humbly accepted. There are so many wonderful people who are part of this story including those we serve, our employees, our fellow board members, those behind the scenes preparing the meals and delivering them, our financial supporters and many others...we are grateful and appreciative for you.

CCHS and Shults Subaru Loves Pets Campaign - Brian P

The Chautauqua County Humane Society and Shults Subaru in Jamestown are teaming up to help Eliza find her forever home during the annual Subaru Loves Pets Campaign. CCHS Partnership Director Brian Papalia said, “Eliza is an energetic girl who loves nearly everyone she meets. She is looking for an active home where her adoptive family will be willing to learn to work with a deaf dog. She really would do best in an active home where she can get the extra attention she deserves. If she is the girl for you, please fill out an adoption form at Chqhumane.org.”Shults Subaru Internet Business Development Bev Lubi says: "We are so happy to be collaborating with the Chautauqua County Humane Society to help find Eliza a home. A core principle of our Subaru Loves Pets Initiative is an ongoing commitment to help all pets find a loving home. Subaru is proud to have donated over $30 million to support the adoption, rescue, transport, and health of more than 250,000 animals. We would love to see Eliza find her forever home." CCHS Partnership Director Brian Papalia said, “We are so thankful for the dedication and support shown by the team at Shults Subaru year after year through Subaru Loves Pets.” Find out how you can become involved with the Chautauqua Humane Society at Chqhumane.org and learn more about Subaru Loves Pets at Edshultssubaru.com.

COI Safe House receives Subaru Donation - Peg O

Chautauqua Opportunities, Inc. would like to send a huge thank you to Beverly Lubi and her team at Shultz Nissan Subaru for their donation to our Youth Services program! The Shultz Nissan Subaru team donated 68 blankets to Chautauqua Opportunities, Inc.’s Safe House in Jamestown, NY. The blankets will be given to youth who stay in the Safe House or Transitional Independent Living Program (TILP) apartments. The Safe House is a 12-bed runaway and homeless youth shelter that is licensed by NYS Office of Children and Family Services. Homeless youth under the age of 18 may stay up to 21 days while staff work to reunite the family or find other appropriate living arrangements. Homeless youth ages 16-21 staying in the TILP apartments learn independent living skills while working or going to school. COI is grateful to Shultz Nissan Subaru for their generous donation to benefit the youth of Chautauqua County!

Shults Subaru Partners with Local MOW - Barrie Y

During the last nine years, Shults Subaru of Jamestown, Subaru of America, and Meals on Wheels America have provided nearly $110,000 to Jamestown Meals on Wheels to help deliver essential meals to homebound seniors in Chautauqua County, NY. This funding, raised through Subaru’s “Share the Love,” allowed Meals on Wheels to deliver 27,000 nutritious meals to seniors in the community, allowing them to remain happy and healthy in their own homes. The funding was even more important during the last 18 months as the Chautauqua County community faced COVID head on, as Jamestown Meals on Wheels continued to provide daily and emergency meals to seniors throughout the community who had no other alternative for food and who hadn’t had a need for Meals on Wheels services until the pandemic hit. Jamestown Meals on Wheels saw no lapse in service and remained open each day, thanks to Subaru. Without funding from “Share the Love,” Jamestown Meals on Wheels wouldn’t have been able to react as quickly to provide essential meals – and there most likely would have been a reduction in service to some seniors as a result, at a time when providing essential food to area seniors was most critical.

Humane Society partners with Shults Subaru - Brian P

The staff at the Chautauqua County Humane Society is always excited to work with Darren Hills and the staff at Ed Shults Subaru for Subaru Loves Pets which culminates each year in a great adoption event just before Halloween. The crew at Ed Shults Subaru is always very welcoming and gives a lot of attention to the shelter pets that get to spend that afternoon at their Fluvanna Avenue location. The added bonus is all of the fun toys and give-a-ways Subaru provides for adopters. Over the years a number of pets have found their way to adoptive families because of the efforts of the folks at Ed Shults Subaru. CCHS is located just down the road from Shults Subaru and we are so happy to have such great neighbors that are so willing to support our mission.

Shults Subaru & Meals on Wheels of Jamestown Team - BARRIE Y

During the last eight years, Shults Subaru of Jamestown, Subaru of America, and Meals on Wheels America have provided nearly $100,000 to Jamestown Meals on Wheels to help provide essential home-delivered meals to homebound seniors in Chautauqua County, NY. This funding, raised through Subaru’s “Share the Love,” allowed Meals on Wheels to deliver more than 25,000 nutritious meals to allow seniors to remain happy and healthy in their own homes. Plus, during 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic, funds provided by Shults, Subaru, and MOWA helped Jamestown Meals on Wheels provide daily and emergency meals to seniors throughout the community who had no other alternative for food and who hadn’t had a need for Meals on Wheels services until the pandemic hit. Jamestown Meals on Wheels saw no lapse in service and remained open each day, thanks to Subaru – in fact, the program successfully delivered 10 percent more meals in 2020 than in previous years. Without funding from “Share the Love,” Jamestown Meals on Wheels wouldn’t have been able to react as quickly to provide essential meals – and there most likely would have been a reduction in service to some seniors as a result, at a time when providing essential food to area seniors was most critical.

Shults Subaru and Share the Love Make Impact - Barrie Y
