Itching, Scratching, Hair Loss - Shannon N

Itching, scratching, hair loss. Discomfort, pain, unpleasant smell. We know those are not the happy thoughts that we associated with the holiday season, but it is what can happen to dogs like Jake and Joey when skin conditions go untreated due to neglect or an own that is overwhelmed. Jake came into the shelter in November 2020 smelling of yeast and obviously uncomfortable. With the proper care and medication, his skin and coat look wonderful and he has thrived with the team of staff and walkers at the shelter. Jake is still waiting for his new forever family! Joey was in a similar situation to Jake, but he quickly went into a wonderful foster home with excellent experience with the breed. While being nursed back to health, his foster quickly because a “foster fail” because he adopted Joey into his family! Our partnership with Stocker Subaru has been so valuable to the ability of Pets Come First to help dogs and cats like Jake and Joey get the medical attention they need and find new loving homes.

A Pandemic Can’t Stop The Love - Jennifer K

The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank has seen an outpouring of support from the community that has been incredible. Thousands of generous individuals and companies have helped to Give Hope Now, but our work is far from over. The Food Bank has seen demand for food assistance increase more than 40% in the past year and expects demand to remain at these high levels for the next two years. With a “strong front” to combat hunger, the Food Bank and its more than 1,000 partner agencies and programs provided over 50 million meals this past year. But community support is what gets the job done - volunteering, donating and raising awareness all contribute to addressing food insecurity across Pennsylvania. Thank you Stocker Subaru for your generous donation of 94,179 meals to the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank. Together, we can end hunger. https://www.centralpafoodbank.org/

Paprika's Story - Shannon N

In June 2020 in the midst of the COVID pandemic, we received a call about a dog that was found on the side of the road and had apparently been hit by a car. The finders were able to transport the dog to a local veterinary clinic where she received initial treatment for air on the lungs and she was stabilized. We were contacted by the local vet because the dog needed additional around the clock care. We then transported her to another local vet where she could receive further treatment and be under 24 hour care for multiple days. She had trauma to her head that left her blind and had nerve damage to her front leg. At that point, we did not know what her long-term prognosis would be, and only time would tell how she would heal. After a search, the owner was found and she was surrendered to us to ensure that she could receive the appropriate care that the original owners were not able or willing to provide. We named her Paprika, and she moved into a quiet foster home where she was monitored for 4 weeks to better understand her long term prognosis. She made slow progress at first, but her sight appeared to be coming back and she started trying to use her front leg that had the nerve damage. As you can imagine, we have acquired a significant vet bill from Paprika’s overnight stays. Funds received through our partnership with Stocker Subaru helped to pay her bills and support her care while in the foster home. These funds also go to support the over 500 animals that are adopted from us each year. We are so humbled and appreciative of the ongoing support from both the business and the individual employees of Stocker Subaru. Paprika continued to heal and progress wonderfully, and throughout her time at the foster, we had very many people express interest in adopting her – but one stood out from the others. We are so happy that her new adopter was the first person that found Paprika that day she was hit by the car. We could not think of a more perfect ending to Paprika's story with us, and the start of her new life! We are so thankful to the Good Samaritans that found her and stepped in to help, and to both vets for caring for her in this emergency! And to Stocker Subaru for continuing to support our work for the animals in need in our community!

Great Performance - Molly H

I have to say that not only is Laurie Voinchet a great sales manager but she has Awesome Customer Service Skills which is the main reason I went with your dealership even though I live 2 1/2 hours away. She more than knocked it out of the park for me. She is not like other sales people that just try to sale; she took the time to listen to me about what I wanted. I Love my new Crosstrek. Well done Laurie & I am telling Everyone how great you are. Another family member will be calling you tomorrow for their new car.

Share the Love, Love Your Heart Event - Laurie V

This December 16, 2019 Stocker Subaru held an event to support our Share the Love Charity ~ Mount Nittany Hospital Cardiovascular Wing. Would you know what to do if a family member or friend had a heart attack or might be choking? We had Bob and Cindy from Penns Valley EMS to demonstrate the use of an AED machine, CPR, choking techniques and blood pressure checks.Statics show that many more heart attacks and choking issues happen during this season as we may tend overindulge on holiday foods and traditions with family and friends. Jeff Brown from the BUS radio was here to join in the festivities. Simon Corby from the Mount Nittany Hospital came to speak about the new wing. We held drawings for Subaru prizes and giveaways to customers and radio listeners. Lots of great food too! The Share the Love Event ends of January 2, 2020. You still have time to stop by and purchase a new Subaru and have $250.00 donated to our local charity or one of the other four. Make A Wish, National Parks, Meals on Wheels and ASPCA. Stocker Subaru will donate $50.00 per car to the charities also.

Stocker Subaru & YSB - Share the Love Event 2018 - Zach B

Stocker Subaru, the Stocker family, and their entire team have been longtime supporters of the Centre County Youth Service Bureau (YSB). Making kids matter and giving back are staples of their business and personal values. During the 2018 holiday season, they showed this once again by selecting YSB to be the recipient of funds from their annual Subaru Share the Love Event. Today I am pleased to announce that Stocker Subaru raised more than $18,000 that will go to helping kids and families in our community. YSB is a private nonprofit that has been serving kids and families in Centre County for over 50 years. Programs and services are funded through federal, state, and local dollars, grants, county contracts, and miscellaneous sources. Each year YSB must raise more than $600,000 from public contributions and major fundraising events to help meet the overall goal. Our youth centers, Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring program, and Street Outreach Program are all in need of these public dollars. Thanks to generous donors like Stocker Subaru, we are able to offer an array of services and programs that are not fully funded by other sources. Thank you Stocker Subaru for making kids matter!
