Safe Kids Ocean/Monmouth, - Denice G

The Pine Belt Subaru Share the Love program has made a positive impact on child passenger safety in Ocean County. Throughout 2020, Safe Kids Ocean/Monmouth, which is led by Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus (MMCSC), continued to work to prevent and reduce childhood injury through education and by providing safety equipment to families in need. Our team of nurses and health educators collaborated with the Ocean County Health Department Women, Infant and Children (WIC) Office, which enabled the team to identify families with a demonstrated financial and material need for a car seat(s). Once a needs assessment was given, determine the appropriate size(s)seat, families were directed to an Ocean County Child Passenger Safety Seat Program. There a Certified CPS technician provided parents and caregivers with a one-on-one tutorial demonstration of the proper installation and instructional use of their specific child safety seat(s) ensuring that the latest car seat guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the NHTSA were being followed.

Caregiver Canines Still Bringing Joy to Seniors - Danielle M

Caregiver Canines®, visiting therapy dog program, and Pine Belt Subaru of Lakewood have been sharing the love even amidst the current pandemic. As the recipients of the 2019 Share The Love event we were able to provide over 2000 hours of therapy dog visits to our community of homebound senior citizens in Ocean and Monmouth Counties. With the money awarded we were able to recruit and train even more therapy dog teams now done completely virtually, provide all our volunteers with insurance to keep their dogs safe when they are out volunteering in the community and equip all volunteers with PPE. Caregiver Canines® is honored to have been chosen again as a partner of Subaru. Our clients have been even more isolated due to Covid-19 public health crisis. Weekly therapy dog visits are often the highlight of their very lonely days. Pine Belt Subaru and the Subaru brand understand the important role that dogs play in the everyday lives of people all over the world and we are proud to be a partner in the fight to end loneliness during these uncertain times by Sharing The Love in the year ahead.

Pick Your Paw Animal Rescue/Pine Belt Subaru - Tammy B

Our Love Promise Story Our story started at an annual pet adoption event at Pine Belt Subaru in Lakewood. An employee volunteered to be a foster for one of our dogs. Pine Belt Subaru allowed this dog to come to work with foster mom as part of our partnership. The dog was part of the PB Subaru family and regularly greeted and interacted with customers and employees. After a successful adoption, the employee continued to foster other dogs who ultimately were adopted. All dogs were adopted by either a Pine Belt employee or customer. All dogs also rode to work every day in a Subaru! Pine Belt Subaru was extremely instrumental in finding homes for four of our dogs by allowing these dogs to be on site and visible. Our pets received the ultimate benefit from this partnership as our agency received exposure by our pets being visible to the Subaru community. This also allowed more people to learn about us and visit our website to inquire about other animals available for adoption. Our first dog to be fostered by PB Subaru did not respond to her name, so foster mom named her “Subi”, in honor of Subaru, which she immediately responded to. This dog was indeed a true Subaru fan and lover! We continue to receive updates on all the adopted dogs, as they regularly visit Subaru when their parents come for service/parts/sale. Former foster mom lets us know she saw them and sends new pictures and updates on their lives. Attached are pictures of all the dogs hanging out in the booth at work at Subaru

The delivery was met by enthusiastic hospital staff including Sarah Manning, Patient Care Director- Outpatient Infusion, and Victoria Rivas, Patient Navigator as well as Stacy Kreizman, Senior Patient Access Manager at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

The staff also expressed how much they love being able to hand a patient having a rough day a blanket and a craft kit they can use for therapeutic art as well.
