Cold Night.... - Emily S

From time to time we get people to donate food and other materials. Gurley Leep Subaru is notorious for not only donating but for coming to serve as well. This past Tuesday night, on one of the coldest nights of the year, 6 employees of the Gurley Leep Subaru, Mishawaka came to serve our guests dinner. On the menu was tacos with green beans, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cheese, apples and cookies. This Team always jumps into action to serve. We are truly grateful for their time and on-going commitment to The Center for The Homeless, South Bend, Indiana.

Sloppy Joes! - Kierstin M

The General Manager at Gurley Leep Subaru called an asked us if his Team could be of service to us! And of course we said yes. We gave Mike Anderson a grocery list of items to make Sloppy Joes for our guests. But it didn't stop there! A crew from Gurley Leep Subaru came and cooked the Sloppy Joes with Macaroni Salad, chips, and dessert! Its great to have helping hearts and hands to lighten the burden for families that are away from home tending to their sick child/ relative. Thanks Gurley Leep Subaru for a cooking!

Wow Gurley Leep! Wow - Emily S

Gurley Leep Subaru reached out to us to let us know that they were going to be donating blankets to our organization (Center for the Homeless, South Bend). Of course we were happy, but it didn't stop there. They also informed us they were doing a food drive on our behalf. They had employees and members of the community donate two vehicles of food, and other personal hygiene products. They donated games and their time. 5 of the Gurley Leep team members served food to our residents and visited with them while one of their employees Joe Uthe brought his guitar and performed songs for us! AND HE WAS AMAZING! WOW WOW WOW!!! This place has been buzzing since the Team's visit! So many people have come to me to let me know how great the evening was. Joe's performance has really rejuvenated this place! We are so grateful for Gurley Leep Subaru! Thank you for caring!

Pet Adoption At Gurley Leep Subaru - Pamela C

We were contacted in September 2021 by Gurley Leep Subaru. The General Manager asked if they could host a pet adoption inside the dealership. At first I thought this was crazy- but to my surprise, it was amazing! Gurley Leep Subaru made posts on social media and they also made a commercial highlighting the event! When we arrived, they helped us get set up on the showroom floor by the cars with almost 30 cats and dogs ready for loving homes. Several cats were adopted, and multiple applications for dogs were also submitted. The real wow factor was all the food and pet supplies that were donated to us. We are truly grateful for Gurley Leep Subaru.

Giving Back... - Aaron C

Gurley Leep Subaru is committed to giving back to the local community, and they showed this in a big way on Wednesday, September 16. Three staff members visited Ronald McDonald House Charities of Michiana to take the Coffee Cart over to Beacon Children’s Hospital in South Bend, Indiana. This small act of kindness makes such a difference in the lives of kids and families who are going through their most difficult moments. Gurley Leep Subaru and RMHC Michiana have formed a strong community partnership that supports the mission of RMHC Michiana – to keep families close in their time of need. Gurley Leep has been a loyal sponsor for RMHC Michiana, including providing the sponsorship for the charity’s therapy dog program and their House dog, Gus. Partnerships like this help those who are most in need, and they strengthen the fiber of local communities. RMHC Michiana is so grateful for the support from Gurley Leep Subaru and for their continued partnership.

Gurley Leep Subaru Shares the Love... - Nancy S

Since 2015, the Subaru Share the Love campaign has donated $147,403 to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Michiana, which has translated to more than 1,000 overnight stays and accommodations for local Michiana families in their time of greatest need. When a family checks into RMHC Michiana, they are stepping into a home-away-from-home for the duration of their ill or injured child’s hospital stay. Families are provided with hot meals, private overnight rooms, basic toiletries, and all the comforts of home – at no charge. Below is the story of one family’s experience, which mirrors so many: In late 2019, a family whose teenage daughter attempted suicide checked in to RMHC Michiana, unsure of what journey they were about to take. They spent almost two weeks here and received an outpouring of support from far and wide as friends and family members took turns caring for the family’s two other children, including 9-year-old Hayden. Hayden’s mom reached out to us to see if there was anything he could do around the House to keep him busy while some tough decisions needed to be made regarding his sister’s prognosis at the hospital. He came to help at the annual Cookie Walk and made quite the impact, jumping right in to restock cookie trays, put away donations, take photos, and walk guests through the process. It was a great day for him and the staff a like. A few days later, his sister passed away and the family came to the House one last time to gather their things and check out. On her way out, Hayden’s mom shared the following: “As horrible as this experience has been, RMHC was a saving grace for Hayden. Now, instead of looking back at this time as the day his life was ruined and he lost his sister, I hope he looks back and sees the good that came from his stay here. I hope he sees this as the moment his passion for volunteering grew, and I hope he chooses to continue to give back.” While every story isn’t a happy ending, the glimmers of hope that come from the services provided thanks to the support of community partnerships allows RMHC Michiana to fulfill its mission of Keeping Families Close, providing a safe haven in even the darkest of times.
