I Speak for Them - CASA of the Tennessee Valley C

In the midst of a desperate time in her life, a mother let her boyfriend (the children’s father) care for her children. The father and mother were never married. These two children were only 3 months and 2yrs of age. The children were left with their father who lived in a town miles away from their mother. The Father filed for custody soon after receiving physical custody of the children. When the Father filed for custody the Judge ordered CASA into the home to see exactly what was going on. The CASA Advocate started their investigation. The CASA Advocate conducted home studies at the Father’s home and did a routine background checks. These background checks showed several concerning findings. The advocate diligently searched through medical records for these children and found that these children had not been to the doctor for a well check or immunizations, these children had been medically neglected. After everything that was found and checked by the advocate, there was a court date. The CASA Advocate put into their report findings all that they had gathered and made court recommendations for the father and mother to be drug tested at court. The mother and the father showed up for the hearing. The Judge ordered both to be tested and the test results that day were positive for cocaine, heroin, and marijuana. The children were then put into the states custody. Because of the proactive and watchful actions of the Roane County CASA advocate, these children are up to date on their medical needs and being loved and cared for by some great foster parents.

With their ongoing support, we have been able to rehome so many pets and help get them vetted! Through donations from Earl Duff Subaru and grants sponsored by Subaru and the ASPCA, we have been able to help Roane County Animal Shelter pets have healthier and happier lives. We have been able to spay and neuter, rabies vaccinate and even cover adoption fees for our adopters. Education and resources we have been able to provide along with the help from Earl Duff Subaru and the ASPCA has improved our whole county, and many folks have joined us on our mission to reduce the number of strays in our area. Together, we are making a difference, one pet at a time! Here's a happy tale from one of our adopters: "Just wanted to say a quick thank you again!! Our Luna is sooooo loved already!!! She’s an absolute perfect matching puzzle piece for us, that we didn’t even know we needed!!"

Subaru supports Roane County Students - Nancy C

These are hard times for so very many Roane County students and families. Schools have become the front line access point to many families and children who need help. Earl Duff Subaru reached out to the Family Resource Center at Roane County Schools to see how they can help. They were given a wish list of items students often need to come to school, learn and be successful. We were provided with an entire carload of needed supplies. This included toiletry items, socks and underwear, and gas cards. Many of our students need to attend specialist doctor appointments and mental health services in Knoxville and the family often doesn't have the money for gas to and from these essential services. The items donated will be added to the Family Resource Room that serves all 17 Roane County Schools through the Student Support department. Thanks Earl Duff Subaru for generously reaching out to us to serve our students and families!!!

Helping Hungry Families - Nancy C

Roane County TN Schools' Family Resource Center was very pleased to collaborate with Earl Duff Subaru in Harriman, TN to feed hungry families in our community. On May 20, 2020 Earl Duff Subaru partnered with the RCS Family Resource Center, Compassion Ministries, and Second Harvest of East Tennessee to create emergency food boxes.Because children and families were not able to come into the school due to COVID-19, a drive up food distribution provided much needed food to 100 local families. Because of Earl Duff Subaru, families from all over our county were able to safely drive up to Midtown Educational Center and receive much needed food during this difficult time. All of our lives have been disrupted by this pandemic. Thanks in part to Earl Duff Subaru, families don't have to feel alone. Together we can help students and families in such a clear and tangible way. Hope for a better future and compassion for our struggling families is alive in East Tennessee!

Make A Wish East Tennessee - Garrett W

I wanted to take this opportunity to send our sincerest thanks to everyone at Earl Duff Subaru for supporting the 2019 Share The Love Event. Please share my thanks with Tim and the whole team. Your dealership raised more than $2,300 for Make-A-Wish. We’d love to come by and do a check presentation to celebrate the 2019 contribution. As you know, Make-A-Wish was one of the four national charities that benefitted from Share The Love last year, but what you might not realize is that Make-A-Wish East Tennessee, right here in your neighborhood, receives the funds raised locally. These funds are used to help grant wishes for kids like Lydia, age 17, who wished to have a French bulldog. There’s more information about Lydia’s wish attached. We are thrilled to be one of four national charities participating in 2020’s Share The Love event. We’d love to work with you and your team to coordinate an event in support of Share The Love this November or December. We have several ideas for ways in which we can help drive traffic to your dealership and increase awareness of the incredible commitment Subaru has to helping support local communities and local wish kids. With COVID-19, new health worries are also present, bringing added isolation and vulnerability for wish kids and their families. While fighting their illness, children are now anxiously counting the days until their wish will be granted. Now more than ever, hope is essential. Thanks to the support from Subaru of America and Subaru retailers across the country, just like you, we were able to grant more than 2,500 wishes the past nine years. We look forward to working together this year to bring experiences of hope and joy to waiting wish kids in East Tennessee. Please let me know when you’d be available to set up a call to discuss ideas for the 2020 Share The Love event. Thank you for all that you do to help make wishes come true. Sincerely, Garrett Garrett Wagley CEO Make-A-Wish® East Tennessee

Gabi has been at the Humane Society of NWGA (Northwest Georgia) for seven years. If you asked the volunteers to pick their favorite animal at the shelter, Gabi would win hands down. She does not do well with dogs or cats so must be the only animal in an adult only family. She loves people and will bond very quickly to you. Gabi would make someone a great companion. She is waiting patiently for her forever home.

Earl Duff Subaru Outstanding Community Partner! - Heather F

Ten years ago CASA of the Ninth Judicial District was formed to recruit and train citizen volunteers who advocate for abused and neglected children in the juvenile court system in Morgan, Roane and Loudon counties. Most of these children have suffered enough abuse or neglect that they have been removed from their homes. A CASA volunteer Advocate is a "guardian angel" for that child. The volunteer becomes the voice for that child to make sure their wishes are heard, assists in ensuring that child is in a safe, permanent, loving home as quickly as possible and makes sure that child has all the services he or she needs to thrive and succeed in life. Earl Duff Subaru's support of CASA has made all the difference to the success of our mission. For ten years Earl Duff Subaru has partnered with CASA of the Ninth Judicial District and helped us through annual Share The Love donations, sponsorship of fundraisers, and participation in other events. Earl Duff Subaru has donated thousands of dollars to our program, enabling CASA to train 102 volunteers who helped 645 children over the last ten years in our community. CASA of the Ninth Judicial District and those 645 children would like to thank Earl Duff Subaru for their partnership and support through the last 10 years. Because of Earl Duff, we are closer to our mission of providing every child who is a victim of abuse or neglect with a highly trained, caring, compassionate adult who can truly make a difference in their lives.
