Andrea and Nathan called our helpline originally asking for help with a utility bill. When the 2 Visitors came to their home and started talking to them, it became more obvious that was a small part of their need. Nathan had been driving a school bus and Andrea was able to work from home starting with the pandemic. When Nathan was diagnosed with a leg disease that was quite painful and required almost daily trips to the hospital, they could still manage, even though their income was cut due to his illness. Her work was flexible enough to allow her to take him back and forth to appointments. The back breaker came when their car went down with an engine loss. Now they were dependent on medical transportation which was expensive and often delayed because of other patients. Then she was told she would have to return to working at the office to keep her job. Nathan has a sister in the Twin Falls area who was helping as much as she could, but that was temporary. Andrea found another job but it didn’t start immediately and pay would be after that. At this point I contacted Rob Studebaker begging for some help for them and explaining that our car fund was empty. As I have come to anticipate his sympathy for real family needs and the generosity of Treasure Valley Subaru, they now have a nice automobile donated entirely by Treasure Valley. GOD BLESS THEM!!!!
Treasure Valley Subaru, known for its commitment to the community, was set to team up with the Idaho Humane Society for a special mission that would leave tails wagging and hearts smiling. It all began one sunny morning when Rob, the General Manager of Treasure Valley Subaru, received an email from Leah, a dedicated volunteer at the Idaho Humane Society. She had an idea that she believed could make a real difference for the animals in their care. She suggested collaborating with the dealership to provide much-needed pet food for the shelter's furry residents. Rob was intrigued by the idea. He had always admired the work the Idaho Humane Society did for the local community and had a soft spot for animals himself. So, he scheduled a meeting with Leah to discuss the proposal further. The plan was simple: Treasure Valley Subaru would hold a pet food drive at their dealership, inviting both customers and employees to donate dog and cat food. For each bag of food donated, the dealership would match it with another bag, effectively doubling the impact. The food collected would then be donated to the Idaho Humane Society to help feed the shelter's animals in need. Excitement grew as the plan took shape. The dealership began promoting the event, hanging up posters, sending emails, and sharing the news on their social media platforms. Their customers and employees, many of whom were pet lovers, were eager to participate. The day of the pet food drive arrived. Treasure Valley Subaru's parking lot was transformed into a bustling, pet-friendly oasis. Dogs of all shapes and sizes joined their human companions to drop off bags of food. Cats, comfortably carried in carriers, also made appearances, with their owners donating bags of kibble and cans of cat food. As the days passed, the collection grew steadily. The dealership's employees and customers came together in the spirit of generosity, donating hundreds of pounds of dog and cat food. Treasure Valley Subaru matched every donation, doubling the impact of their efforts. Finally, the day came for the official handover. Rob and Leah, accompanied by a few of their canine companions, arrived at the Idaho Humane Society. The shelter's staff and volunteers greeted them with smiles and wagging tails. Together, they unloaded the precious cargo of pet food, filling the shelter's storeroom to the brim. The dogs and cats of the Idaho Humane Society were overjoyed by the delivery. They eagerly gobbled up their freshly donated meals, their happy barks and purrs filling the air. Rob and Leah witnessed the immediate impact of their partnership, knowing that their collaboration had made a difference in the lives of these animals. The collaboration between Treasure Valley Subaru and the Idaho Humane Society will continue, strengthening the bond between the local dealership and the shelter. Together they will organize more events, including pet adoption drives, fundraising efforts, and awareness campaigns to help even more animals in need. The partnership not only helped provide food for the shelter's animals but also created a sense of community and goodwill in Nampa. Treasure Valley Subaru and the Idaho Humane Society showed that when a local business and a dedicated organization unite for a common cause, they can achieve incredible things together, one paw at a time.
Every year Treasure Valley Subaru Teams up with Idaho Humane Society for see spot walk. As the summer sun painted the Boise skyline with hues of gold and crimson, something magical happened at Ann Morrison Park. It was a day eagerly awaited by dogs and their owners, a day of wagging tails, joyful barks, and boundless enthusiasm. It was the annual "See Spot Walk" event organized by the Idaho Humane Society. The anticipation leading up to See Spot Walk was palpable. Dog owners from all over Idaho prepared their four-legged companions for the grand event. They bathed their dogs, brushed their fur until it gleamed, and even got matching outfits. The sense of camaraderie and excitement was infectious. On the day of the event, Ann Morrison Park came alive with the energy of a thousand wagging tails. Families, friends, and their canine companions gathered at the park. Vendors lined the pathways, offering everything from gourmet dog treats to handmade dog accessories. The atmosphere was electric, as people and dogs of all shapes and sizes mingled, forming an eclectic and heartwarming community. A sea of colorful leashes, bandanas, and collars filled the park as dogs and their owners proudly paraded through the designated routes. Spot, the iconic Dalmatian and mascot of the Idaho Humane Society, led the way, showcasing his exuberance and zest for life. Along the winding paths, there were designated stops for games and activities, including frisbee tosses, agility courses, and "Best Dressed" contests. Laughter filled the air as dogs raced through tunnels, weaved through poles, and showed off their stylish ensembles. Prizes were awarded to the most fashionable, the fastest, and the goofiest dogs, adding to the festive spirit. But See Spot Walk was about much more than fun and games. It was also a time for reflection. At the "Rescue Heroes" tent, attendees could meet some of the animals whose lives had been transformed by the Idaho Humane Society. These heartwarming success stories served as a reminder of the event's ultimate purpose: to raise funds and awareness for the Idaho Humane Society's mission of rescuing and rehabilitating animals in need. As the day unfolded, participants took a leisurely stroll with their furry companions, appreciating the beauty of the park and the companionship of their beloved pets. The event encouraged a sense of unity among dog owners and a shared love for the four-legged members of their families. The event concluded with a heartfelt speech by the Idaho Humane Society's director, expressing gratitude for the community's support and the funds raised. The smiles, laughter, and sense of togetherness that See Spot Walk fostered were priceless, reminding everyone of the importance of compassion and empathy for animals in need. As the sun dipped below the horizon, and the park gradually emptied, the memory of See Spot Walk lingered in the hearts of all who had been part of this extraordinary day. The bonds strengthened, the joy shared, and the funds raised would continue to make a difference in the lives of countless animals, proving that love for our furry friends could truly unite a community, year after year.

Treasure Valley Subaru and St. Luke's Children's Hospital have joined forces for a remarkable event known as the 38th annual Scramble for the Kids. This event, which has become one of the hospital's cherished traditions, combines the thrill of golf with the warmth of community and the spirit of giving. Each year, the event unfolds on a picturesque golf course, where participants and supporters gather to celebrate the resilience and strength of the littlest patients at St. Luke's. Teams comprising golf enthusiasts and philanthropists alike come together for a highly competitive four-man scramble-style golf tournament. The tournament, played over 18 challenging holes, is a testament to the dedication of those involved. It's not just about winning; it's about making a difference where it truly matters. With every swing, participants reaffirm their commitment to supporting children facing health challenges. Once the final putt is sunk and the last hole is conquered, the day culminates in a delightful lunch. This moment of respite is not just a chance to savor a delicious meal but also an opportunity for participants to share stories and laughter, strengthening the bonds of camaraderie formed throughout the day. The heart of the event lies in recognizing the exceptional work being done at St. Luke's Children's Hospital. Participants gather to hear about the hospital's achievements, its dedicated healthcare professionals, and, most importantly, the courageous children who inspire us all.

It has raised an astonishing $2.4 million, all of which goes towards supporting the young patients at St. Luke's Children's Hospital. This financial backing has played a pivotal role in expanding the hospital's capacity to provide world-class care and support for children in need. One of the event's most exciting features is the hole-in-one prize—a 2024 Subaru Crosstrek, generously offered by Treasure Valley Subaru. While every golfer dreams of sinking the ball in a single stroke to claim this coveted prize, it remains a challenging feat. Unfortunately, this year, no one managed to achieve this remarkable feat. However, the thrill of the challenge only adds to the event's excitement and anticipation for future attempts. This year's event was particularly successful in fundraising, bringing in over $142,000. These funds will be directed towards crucial initiatives, including Mental and Behavioral Health. Additionally, the money will be used to expand the clinic's capacity, addressing the growing waiting list of children seeking care at St. Luke's.

Treasure Valley Subaru was thrilled to announce its continued partnership with St. Vincent de Paul Southwest Idaho for their annual Summerfest, a highly anticipated fundraising gala that played a crucial role in supporting the organization's ongoing efforts. This year's Summerfest held special significance as St. Vincent de Paul Southwest Idaho commemorated its 25th anniversary of service to the community. Since its official incorporation in the summer of 1998, St. Vincent de Paul Southwest Idaho had been dedicated to improving the lives of those in need. The organization's work dated back even further, and this milestone provided an opportunity to reflect on a quarter-century of outreach, compassion, and transformative impact. On Friday, June 16th, 2023, Summerfest 2023 took place, featuring a captivating "Roaring Twenties" theme in honor of the Silver Anniversary of St. Vincent de Paul Southwest Idaho. The event promised an evening of elegance and entertainment, including mingling, dining, silent auctions, and a live auction featuring extraordinary donated prizes such as trips, concerts, and unique experiences. As a remarkable contribution, Treasure Valley Subaru had generously provided a 2023 Subaru Outback and a 2023 Subaru Impreza to be raffled off to two lucky winners. The night was filled with excitement and anticipation as the winners were announced. Laura, the winner of the Impreza, is about to retire and needed a reliable car to enjoy her non-working life. She had purchased just one ticket at church, never expecting to be the lucky winner. Laura's heartfelt donation went towards an amazing cause, and she was overjoyed to receive this unexpected blessing. The winner of the Subaru Outback, Melody, had experienced a recent setback when she lost her previous vehicle and had been relying on a family member's old car that she couldn't fully trust. Melody's husband, a truck driver who kept his Bible on his dash and saved money for unforeseen circumstances, felt compelled to purchase a raffle ticket after a friend informed him about the event. Their name being drawn as the winners felt like a true miracle and a blessing in their time of need. Tears of joy flowed as Melody exclaimed, "This is truly a miracle and a blessing we needed." The partnership between Treasure Valley Subaru and St. Vincent de Paul Southwest Idaho was a testament to their shared commitment to making a positive difference in the community. Both organizations understood the importance of personal relationships and service in creating a more just world. St. Vincent de Paul's mission, inspired by Gospel values, guided its dedicated members, known as "Vincentians," to offer compassionate support to neighbors in need. Founded in Paris in 1833, the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul had grown into a global network of 800,000 members across 150 countries, with 1,500,000 volunteers. In the United States, the National Council of the Society provided training, education, spiritual formation, and financial support to Vincentians as they assisted millions of individuals and families in need.

The Jayden DeLuca Foundation hosted its highly anticipated 15th Annual Golf Scramble at Eagle Hills Golf Course, commencing with an exciting shotgun start. The event was a resounding success, raising significant funds for the Jayden DeLuca Foundation, which supports Saint Luke's Children's, Children's Hospital Colorado, and the Jayden DeLuca Patient Assistance Fund. All proceeds from the event will go toward aiding children with congenital heart defects (CHDs) and promoting further research and awareness of pediatric heart conditions. CHDs are a group of abnormalities affecting the structure, electrical system, and overall function of the heart. Shockingly, 40,000 babies are born each year in the United States with a congenital heart defect, making it the number one birth defect in the country, as reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In fact, nearly 1 in 110 babies in the United States are born with a heart defect annually, according to the Children's Hospital Pediatric Heart Center (CHPHC). Unfortunately, the cause of most CHDs remains unknown, and there is currently no cure for any of the 40 different types of congenital heart defects. These conditions significantly contribute to infant illness and mortality associated with birth defects. Despite their prevalence, CHDs receive considerably less funding for research compared to childhood cancer. CHDs are approximately 60 times more prevalent than childhood cancer, as indicated by the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Shockingly, in the United States, twice as many children die each year from congenital heart defects compared to all forms of childhood cancer combined. Yet, funding for pediatric cancer research is five times higher than funding for CHDs, as highlighted by the American Heart Association. Approximately 25% of babies born with a CHD have a critical condition, requiring surgery or invasive procedures within their first year of life. The cost for inpatient surgery to repair congenital heart defects exceeds $1.9 billion annually. While congenital heart defects frequently pose life-threatening situations, research funding directed toward this disease is grossly inadequate considering its prevalence. Unfortunately, only a fraction of a penny from every dollar the government spends on medical funding is allocated toward congenital heart defect research. However, thanks to research advancements, including those made possible by the Jayden DeLuca Foundation since its establishment in 2008, death rates associated with congenital heart defects have declined by nearly 30%. Jayden Riley DeLuca, who bravely battled a congenital heart condition called a single ventricle, touched the lives of many during her 2 1/2 years with us. While she underwent two major open-heart surgeries and numerous clinical procedures, Jayden's spirit transcended her heart condition. She lived life to the fullest, enjoying cherished moments with her family, playing with her dogs, and exploring various places, including Disneyland, Las Vegas, and Lake Tahoe. The loss of Jayden deeply affected all those who had the privilege of knowing her. Her radiant smile brightened every room, and her absence left a void in the world. Jayden's incredible spirit continues to inspire her parents, Jeremy and Karalie DeLuca, and led to the establishment of the Jayden DeLuca Foundation in 2008. The Jayden DeLuca Foundation aims to provide support, encouragement, and resources to children and families fighting cardiac diseases. By promoting awareness of cardiac diseases and actively supporting scientific and medical research of pediatric heart conditions, the foundation strives to make a difference in the lives of those affected by these conditions. During the 15th Annual Golf Scramble, Treasure Valley Subaru demonstrated its commitment to the cause by sending a dedicated team of four participants: Rowan Sherman, Jeff Cristler, Tanner Coatsworth, and Nate Andersen. Their skills on the golf course may not have been extraordinary, but their passion for the cause was unmatched. Despite the somewhat rainy day on the course, everyone had a fantastic time for an incredible cause. In addition to sending a team, Treasure Valley Subaru generously offered a 2024 Subaru Crosstrek as a prize for anyone who could achieve a hole-in-one. While no participants successfully completed the challenge, their spirited attempts added to the excitement of the event. The long-standing partnership between Treasure Valley Subaru and the Jayden DeLuca Foundation ensures that children born with congenital heart defects receive the care and support they need. Together, they strive to improve the lives of these children and contribute to advancements in the field of pediatric cardiac care.

Treasure Valley Subaru has once again demonstrated its unwavering commitment to the community through its active participation in the 11th Annual Spring Miller's Mission fundraiser. Hosted by Kevin Miller of KIDO Talk Radio 107.5FM & 580AM, this fundraiser aims to support Boise Rescue Mission Ministries, emphasizing the importance of every penny and the impact it can make when helping those in need. Throughout the week of May 22nd to May 27th, Treasure Valley Subaru, under the guidance of General Manager Rob Studebaker, joined forces with the morning radio broadcast to bring awareness to this noble cause. They rallied behind the mission, encouraging community members to contribute their spare change by collecting pennies in cans, jars, or piggy banks and bringing them to Walmart's Franklin and Garrity store in Nampa. On Thursday, May 25th, the staff of Treasure Valley Subaru went above and beyond their call of duty. Working together, they purchased over $3000 worth of essential supplies for the Rescue Mission and its patrons. Their carts were filled with items such as nail clippers, medicine, diapers, clothing, towels, sheets, pillows, and outdoor activity items. The Subaru staff left their mark on the shelves, making sure that the Mission's needs were met. As a final gesture of support, on Saturday morning, the entire staff of the dealership gathered to express their love and gratitude to Kevin Miller for his tireless efforts in ensuring the ongoing success of Boise Rescue Mission. During this special occasion, Kevin was honored with Treasure Valley Subaru's coveted Red Shoes Living award, symbolizing the dealership's recognition of his authenticity, empathy, and meaningful connections. In addition, he received a pair of red Converse shoes, representing the Red Shoes Living philosophy, which encourages individuals to embrace their uniqueness, show compassion towards others, and foster genuine relationships. By embodying these principles and leaving a positive impact, individuals can lead a fulfilling and purposeful life. This year, Kevin's mission for the fundraiser is to raise funds for The Next Step, Curtis Road - a Transitional Christian Living Community, and the Mission's summer Children's Program. In addition to pennies, the Rescue Mission is accepting non-perishable food, new clothing, and various other essential items to aid homeless and hurting individuals in the Treasure Valley. Donations can be conveniently dropped off at the Mission tent located near the Walmart entrance. The tent provides a needs list for reference and facilitates cash or credit card donations. Since 1958, Boise Rescue Mission Ministries has been at the forefront of restoring faith, hope, and family across the Treasure Valley. Serving homeless and addicted men, women, and children from six unique locations in Ada and Canyon counties, the Mission takes a comprehensive approach to address homelessness. They not only provide food, shelter, and clothing but also strive to nurture the whole person by teaching the Word of God and offering opportunities for recovery. The impact of Boise Rescue Mission Ministries is far-reaching. Each day, the Mission serves hundreds of individuals experiencing homelessness or in need of immediate assistance. The generous support from the community ensures that struggling neighbors can access vital resources such as food, shelter, and clothing on a daily basis. Treasure Valley Subaru continues to stand by the side of the Mission, aligning their values with the goal of ensuring the best for those in the Treasure Valley. Their unwavering commitment to making a difference in the lives of others is evident in their active involvement and support for the Miller's Mission fundraiser. Through their actions, they exemplify the spirit of compassion and generosity that is the heart of the Treasure Valley community. Treasure Valley Subaru's involvement in the Spring Miller's Mission fundraiser is a testament to their dedication to serving the community beyond their role as a dealership. They embody the spirit of community partnership, actively working to create positive change and support those in need. Together, as a community united in compassion, we can uplift and restore faith, hope, and family across the Treasure Valley.
On Friday, May 19th, Treasure Valley Subaru demonstrated its commitment to the community by participating in and sponsoring the 14th annual Treasure Valley Kiwanis Swing for Kids Golf Scramble at Nampa's Centennial Golf Course. The event aimed to raise funds for several deserving charities, and Treasure Valley Subaru made sure to contribute in a big way. As part of their sponsorship, Treasure Valley Subaru offered an exciting incentive—a loaded 2023 Subaru Ascent, complete with a lift kit and custom wheel and tire package—to anyone who could achieve a hole-in-one on a par 3 hole. The dealership's enthusiasm for the event was evident, and they eagerly awaited a remarkable feat on the course. Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of all the participants, no one managed to sink that elusive hole-in-one drive. Nonetheless, the atmosphere was vibrant and filled with excitement as golf enthusiasts gathered to support a noble cause. Not only did Treasure Valley Subaru sponsor the event, but they also fielded a four-man team composed of Brian Fouts, Bret Eshelman, John Carnes, and Jake Rapp. The dealership's team members, including sales managers, a finance director, and a floor manager, showcased their skills and competitive spirit throughout the tournament. However, their primary goal was not to win the tournament but to contribute to the charitable endeavors. Apart from the thrilling golf competition, the event featured a range of prizes and activities, including the highly anticipated hole-in-one giveaway. Attendees were treated to a day filled with fun and camaraderie, knowing that every dollar spent would go towards supporting local charities. The proceeds from the Swing for Kids Golf Scramble will be dedicated to several deserving organizations that aim to make a positive impact on the lives of children and youth in the Treasure Valley community. One of the beneficiaries is The Mentoring Network, led by Executive Director Donna Shines. This organization provides school-based mentoring to at-risk students in rural areas, starting from grades 1 to 8 and continuing through high school. The program focuses on improving test scores, attendance, behavior, and self-worth among students, empowering them to succeed academically and personally. Another recipient is The International Ministry Network, an affiliate of Empty Hand Combat, founded by Cosmo Zimik. This program offers martial arts training to young people, irrespective of their family's income. Through martial arts, participants develop discipline, respect for others, self-respect, and leadership skills, nurturing their personal growth and character development. Breaking Chains Academy, led by Executive Director Luis Granados, is also supported by the event. Luis himself rose above experiences with gangs and violence, channeling his passion and direction towards helping youth break free from destructive behaviors. The academy provides a safe and caring environment for students, equipping them with the necessary tools to pass the GED exam, learn life skills, and explore educational and employment opportunities. Lastly, the Kiwanis Key Club at Skyview High School benefits from the funds raised at the Swing for Kids Golf Scramble. The Key Club is a student-led organization focused on service and making a positive impact in the world. Through volunteerism and community engagement, club members develop leadership skills while assisting those in need, whether it be raking leaves, collecting food and clothing for disadvantaged families, or engaging in other impactful activities. The 14th annual Treasure Valley Kiwanis Swing for Kids Golf Scramble was not just a day of golf; it was an opportunity for the community to come together and support local charities dedicated to improving the lives of children and youth. Treasure Valley Subaru's sponsorship and participation underscored their commitment to making a difference and fostering a stronger, more caring community. With events like this, we can all contribute to creating a brighter future for the Treasure Valley's young generation.
Nampa, Idaho - May 19th, 2023 - In a remarkable display of compassion and community partnership, Treasure Valley Subaru presented a check for $28,092 to the Boise Rescue Mission as part of Subaru's Share the Love® Event. The event, held at the Treasure Valley Subaru dealership, was attended by supporters, local officials, and representatives from both organizations. From November 17, 2022, to January 3, 2023, Subaru committed to donating $250 to the purchaser's selected charity for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased. In 2022, the Boise Rescue Mission was chosen as one of two local charities to receive these funds, providing vital support to their ongoing efforts. The event was hosted by Rob Studebaker, the esteemed leader of Treasure Valley Subaru, and emceed by Kevin Miller of KIDO Radio. Their presence underscored the dealership's commitment to the community and its dedication to partnering with the Boise Rescue Mission year after year. Reverend Bill Roscoe, representing the Boise Rescue Mission, gratefully accepted the generous donation on behalf of the organization. In his remarks, Reverend Roscoe highlighted the exceptional leadership of Rob Studebaker, describing Treasure Valley Subaru as one of the premier businesses in the Treasure Valley. He commended their unwavering support, from serving meals to raising funds, stating that they had always gone above and beyond to assist those in need. The funds presented by Treasure Valley Subaru will have a profound impact on the Boise Rescue Mission's newest facility, The Next Step on Curtis Road. This transitional Christian living community is designed to provide individuals with an intermediate step out of emergency shelters and towards independent living. With the addition of 60 critically needed transitional living apartments, the Mission's Transitional Housing Program will see significant expansion. The renovation of The Next Step will allow the Boise Rescue Mission to offer additional support to individuals and families experiencing homelessness. The facility aims to provide a safe and supportive environment while addressing the challenges faced in finding stable housing after a crisis. By maintaining this supportive atmosphere, the Mission can increase the chances of success for its guests and program members. Boise Rescue Mission Ministries, a nonprofit organization founded in 1958, has dedicated over 60 years to meeting the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual needs of homeless and addicted individuals in the Boise and Nampa areas. Their steadfast commitment to transforming lives has positioned them as a beacon of hope in the community. Impressively, they serve more than half (65%) of the homeless individuals in Idaho. One of the biggest challenges faced by individuals overcoming homelessness is finding stable housing while maintaining a supportive environment. The partnership between Treasure Valley Subaru, Kevin Miller, and the Boise Rescue Mission solidifies their shared commitment to address this challenge. Together, they will continue to assist the homeless population of Idaho and strengthen the community as a whole. Looking ahead, the Boise Rescue Mission eagerly anticipates the continued partnership with Treasure Valley Subaru, Kevin Miller, and other community members. Their collective efforts will undoubtedly bring about transformative change, ensuring that the lives of men, women, and children in the community are truly transformed. As they move forward, the organizations remain steadfast in their mission to provide support, hope, and a brighter future for those in need.
It was a day of celebration for the Treasure Valley community as Subaru and the Idaho Humane Society teamed up for the annual free microchipping event on May 5th, 2023. Pet owners from all over the region came together to take advantage of this amazing opportunity to keep their furry friends safe. As pet owners, we all know that accidents can happen, and sometimes our pets can get lost. That's why it's so important to take proactive steps to ensure their safety. Microchipping is a great option for pet identification, and Treasure Valley Subaru made it accessible to all by sponsoring the first 100 participants, whether they had a cat or a dog. It's heartening to see a local business taking such an active role in promoting responsible pet ownership and safety. Microchipping is a simple and safe process that involves implanting a tiny transponder about the size of a grain of rice under your pet's skin. This unique identifier can be read by a special scanner that animal control officers and shelters have. While microchipping is a great option, it should never be your pet's primary identification method. In the event of accidental separation, identification tags are your pet's first ticket home. The Treasure Valley Subaru and Idaho Humane Society event was more than just a free microchipping service. The atmosphere was lively and fun, with a fiesta-style taco bar provided to add to the celebratory mood. It was a great opportunity for the community to come together and learn about responsible pet ownership while enjoying some delicious food. Subaru's commitment to the community and their furry friends is heartening. By sponsoring events like this, they're making a real difference in the lives of pets and their owners. The partnership with the Idaho Humane Society is a testament to their dedication, and we can't wait to see what they do next. In conclusion, the Treasure Valley Subaru and Idaho Humane Society's annual free microchipping event was a huge success. It was a fantastic opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate the love we have for our furry friends. Remember, microchipping is a great back-up option for pet identification, but it should never be the primary one. Make sure your pet always wears an identification tag to ensure their safety. Thank you, Treasure Valley Subaru, for your commitment to the community and your furry friends!
As you may know, Subaru is more than just a car company. Since 2008, the annual Subaru Share the Love® Event has been highlighting their commitment to giving back to the community. For each new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased at participating retailers, the company donates $250 to a national or local charity of the customer’s choice. For the past three years, Treasure Valley Subaru has been selecting Guardian Paws Service Dogs as their local charity recipient for the Share the Love event. The organization is dedicated to training service dogs for veterans with service-connected diagnosis and rating, specifically for Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSS) and ambulatory needs. GPSD works with veterans and their own dogs, or assists them in finding a dog that is suitable for training, all at no charge to the veteran. The Share the Love event has allowed Treasure Valley Subaru to raise a significant amount of money for Guardian Paws. This year, they were able to donate $29,091.67 to the organization. To celebrate this achievement, Treasure Valley Subaru hosted an event on April 7th to present the funds raised to Guardian Paws. The check presentation was attended by Rob Studebaker, the general manager of Treasure Valley Subaru, Kevin Miller of KIDO, who was the MC of the event, Jay Lynch, district sales manager for Subaru of America, and Tina Day, founder of Guardian Paws Service Dogs. The event was a huge success, with community members, veterans and their animals, members of the press, dealership staff, and customers in attendance. Upon receiving the check, Tina Day expressed her gratitude to Treasure Valley Subaru and Subaru of America for their continued support of GPSD. “In just under three years, Treasure Valley Subaru and Subaru of America have helped with almost $100,000 dollars via the Share the Love campaign. Without the support of the Treasure Valley Subaru Family, we would not have been able to assist as many veterans as we have.” Tina Day also emphasized the importance of the work that GPSD does, especially in light of the rising number of veteran suicides. “In the past it was 22 veterans a day are lost to suicide, it is now 24 per day. GPSD, with the assistance of Treasure Valley Subaru, has not lost a single member.” Treasure Valley Subaru and Guardian Paws Service Dogs are committed to continuing their partnership to raise awareness of PTSS and support veterans in their community. By working together, they hope to ensure that both veterans and the local community are educated and cared for.

Last night, Treasure Valley Subaru proudly sponsored the Idaho Humane Society's Mutts and Meows Mixer fundraiser, which was held at Western Collective. The event brought together pet lovers from across the Treasure Valley to learn about the Idaho Humane Society's programs and support the organization while enjoying beer and snacks. Treasure Valley Subaru staff members were on hand to show off their smarts with some trivia and dance moves during the 90's musical bingo. The company also donated a fabulous raffle basket, which included a car detail and an oil change for one lucky winner. "We are thrilled to support the Idaho Humane Society and their mission to provide shelter, medical care, and forever homes for animals in need," said Rob Studebaker from Treasure Valley Subaru. "The Mutts and Meows Mixer was a great opportunity to bring together pet lovers from across the community and raise awareness for this important cause." The Idaho Humane Society is a non-profit organization that provides a variety of services to animals in need, including adoption, spay and neuter services, and emergency medical care. The organization relies on donations and support from the community to continue their work. "We are grateful for the support of Treasure Valley Subaru and all of the attendees who came out to support the Idaho Humane Society," said a representative from the organization. "The Mutts and Meows Mixer was a fun and casual event that helped raise awareness for our programs and the animals we serve." Overall, the event was a great success, and everyone involved could feel the love and support for the Idaho Humane Society and their mission.
Treasure Valley Subaru is proud to sponsor the Idaho Humane Society's 2023 Valentine's for Paws fundraiser. 100 lucky Treasure Valley pet-lovers will receive Valentine's Day dinner, catered by Albertsons Market Street Caterers, delivered right to their door. But that is not all. Everyone will have hearts in their eyes when they see the package also includes non-toxic flowers, chocolates from Lee's Candies, Sparkling wine from Hayden Beverage, and a spiffy clean car wash provided by Treasure Valley Subaru.
Best Day EVER! One of the amazing things that our staff at West Valley Humane Society appreciates about our incredible community is the beautiful way we are loved and supported. On February 21, 2023, West Valley Humane Society put out a plea for help. Our adult dog food was running dangerously low and we needed more! So many community members immediately sprung into action and the donations began pouring in. One shining example of our community's generosity was exemplified by Treasure Valley Subaru. TVS contacted staff at West Valley Humane Society and eventually spoke to our Executive Director, Jen Adkins. Rob, Tina, and the TVS team let us know that not only had they raised over $1000 for dog food, they had purchased the food AND had several other leaders in our community looped in to help! When we arrived that morning at TVS, we were warmly welcomed by the TVS team with big smiles, warm handshakes and an outpouring of support! We will never be able to adequately express how grateful we are to Rob and Tina and their wonderful team members for being huge advocates of the good work we do at WVHS, but for also putting their words to deed and helping us when we needed it the most! WVHS went through an extremely challenging leadership loss just a few months ago and we know that we would never have been able to overcome our challenges without the care, love, and dedication of sincere animal advocates. Animal advocates like those who make up the TVS team. The biggest and warmest thank you goes out to all of our community supporters; espciallyTreasure Valley Subaru!
Cradle of Hope is a new program of Boise Rescue Mission Ministries (BRMM) to provide a safe haven for moms and babies in crisis and unplanned pregnancy situations, addressing specific needs to strengthen the family, restore a confident personal identity, and revive a culture of life, tradition, and hope for this and future generations. The Cradle of Hope Program aims to fill the "gap needs" in crisis and unplanned pregnancy care in the Treasure Valley while partnering with local life-affirming pregnancy clinics, churches, and other organizations. It is more important than ever to reach out to women and men alike, reminding them that they are not alone, that their lives have value, that life is the first gift from God and the first unalienable right outlined in the Declaration of Independence, and that each human being - including the unborn - is made in the image of God, and therefore infinitely precious. The words of the Psalmist in Psalm 139 say it best. "For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well." We at the Rescue Mission are so appreciative of our wonderful volunteers and donors, such as Treasure Valley Subaru, who make it possible for us to continue serving the beautiful mothers and children (as well as fathers) in our community. Donations, such as changing tables, new baby bottles, clothing, and other baby supplies, are one more way to remind the moms in the Cradle of Hope program that they are not alone. With this help from our community, we can provide the safety, support, and nurturing environment these young families need. It takes time and effort to walk by another's side - but it is this partnership that makes the world go 'round, reminds each of us that there is always hope, and gives credence to the truth of human dignity. Every life is precious.
As part of the Subaru Loves to Care campaign, Treasure Valley Subaru had the opportunity to deliver much needed items to the Salvation Army headquarters in Nampa Idaho. Over 100 pairs of socks, which are a greatly needed item, along with basic toiletries and children's items. There has been a large increase in the homeless population throughout the state of Idaho and the Salvation Army has been at the forefront of assisting this ever-growing demographic. Even families have been affected, which is a huge focus for the Nampa facility. Salvation Army family housing is important during the winter months because it provides a safe and warm place for families who are experiencing homelessness or struggling to make ends meet. The cold temperatures and inclement weather during the winter can be dangerous for families without proper shelter, and the Salvation Army's family housing can help prevent cold-related health problems and even save lives. Additionally, the Salvation Army often provides other services and resources to families staying in their housing, such as food assistance, job training, and counseling, which can help families get back on their feet and improve their long-term prospects. The partnership between Treasure Valley Subaru and the Salvation Army benefits the community in several ways. By donating socks, personal hygiene items, and other basic needs, the dealership is helping the Salvation Army meet the immediate needs of people experiencing homelessness or financial hardship. These donations can help improve the health and well-being of individuals who may not have access to these essential items otherwise. In addition to the direct benefit to individuals in need, this partnership can also help build a stronger and more caring community. It demonstrates that local businesses are committed to giving back and supporting those who are less fortunate. This can encourage others to get involved and make a positive difference in the community, helping to build a culture of generosity and compassion. Finally, this partnership can also help raise awareness of the issue of homelessness and the work that the Salvation Army does to support those in need. This increased awareness can help break down stereotypes and reduce stigma, creating a more inclusive and supportive community for all. Treasure valley Subaru's General Manager, Rob Studebaker, and his team have been strong advocates of the Salvation Army and their cause. And they will continue to help in any way.
On January 14th 2023, the Jayden DeLuca foundation held its 7th annual masquerade ball and silent auction in Boise Idaho. Treasure Valley Subaru once again partnered with the foundation, with the donation of a 2023 Crosstrek to be raffled off. All proceeds of the raffle benefit St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital, pediatric heart research and families of children with pediatric heart disease. The Jayden Deluca Foundation was established in 2008 with the goal of helping other children and their families fight cardiac diseases and offer support and encouragement to all those affected by pediatric heart conditions. Jayden Riley DeLuca was born with a congenital heart condition known as a single ventricle. In her 2 1/2 years of life, she underwent 2 major open heart surgeries and numerous clinical procedures. Losing Jayden affected the lives of everyone she ever came into contact with. Her smile would brighten up any room, and with her gone, the world seemed like a darker place. She is greatly missed by all those who had the privilege of knowing her. The foundation looks to promote awareness of cardiac diseases and to aid in further scientific and medical research of pediatric heart conditions. There needs to be more research and more time devoted to helping those who face this problem. Sadly, the necessary technology that could have saved Jayden DeLuca didn’t exist when she needed it. But that can be changed. The hope is that soon, pediatric cardiac conditions will be completely manageable or will be a thing of the past altogether. In raising awareness and contributing to The Jayden DeLuca Foundation our partnership will continue to thrive. We have hope that more children will have to opportunity to overcome pediatric cardiac conditions. Our very own Rob Studebaker sits on the Jayden DeLuca Foundation community board, and with his leadership, Treasure Valley Subaru will do everything they can to further the awareness of this condition throughout Idaho.
The staff here at Treasure Valley Subaru came to know Samantha when she visited searching for a new family vehicle. Her story is one that hit deep into the hearts of us all. She had recently moved to Idaho to have a fresh start and to rebuild. Last year Samantha and her two young children lost their husband/ father while he was serving in the military overseas. Without assistance, she sold her old house, loaded up the moving truck, and headed off on a new chapter with her kids. As they settled in, it was determined that a new car was required, and that's when she found us. Upon arrival, the staff had the opportunity to get to know her wonderful children and learn all about their love of monster trucks, NERF guns, and Spider-Man. We also got a much deeper understanding of how the loss had affected Samantha and her life. Due to the circumstances, this would be the first holiday season without her husband, and it led to a lot of emotional stress. So everyone at Treasure Valley Subaru pitched in to help relieve some of the pressures. Toys galore, clothes, and even things for Samantha were purchased and delivered by employees. At Treasure Valley Subaru, we truly do believe you get what you give, and that each guest truly does become part of the family. The experience does not end when you drive away in a new vehicle, it continues well after.
Angela originally came to Treasure Valley Subaru as a service customer. Having issues with her old vehicle was making life difficult due to health issues and devoting herself to assisting with her two autistic grandchildren. She has always put the needs of others before her own and carries a "keep your head up" attitude towards life. While working with one of our team members, Colby Lifferth, more of her story was heard. Angela had been going through some tough health issues yet still maintained caring for her daughter and grandchildren. Times were tough and with the added expense of the auto repairs, Christmas was going to be very minimal. Colby knew this was a situation that we could help with and gathered the troops. After discussing Angela's situation with Rob, the general manager, it was decided that we would take care of the repairs on her vehicle. The support did not stop there, as the entire staff rallied to ensure that Angela's daughter and grandchildren had a wonderful Christmas. From toys to clothes to housewares all were loaded up and delivered. After receiving the help and unexpected support, Angela, being the kind hearted person she is, even returned to the store. As a thank you for all we had done she made a massive chili and cornbread feast for the entire crew. Angela is a shining example of the Red Shoes Living and H.E.A.R.T. pillars we follow. Putting herself out there, and caring more for others, even when she is struggling herself. Meeting and helping people like this in our community is what drives us to help more. We are blessed to have met her and her family.
The people here at Treasure Valley Subaru are very passionate about animals, so when the folks at Camp Bow Wow called and said they needed help, it was an easy decision to ask what we could do. Four local charities including the Meridian Canine Rescue, Fuzzy Pawz, Greenheart and the Pet Adoption League were in desperate need of supplies to care for animals waiting to find their forever homes. Upon hearing this, a pet supply drive was immediately started. Employees and customers alike brought in items such as food, bowls, toys, coats and beds. All items donated would be split between the organizations and distributed to the animals in need. Our commitment to the Treasure Valley community does not stop at people. We understand that even pets need help in their process to find the happy ever after they deserve. We want to thank all of our supporters for helping make this drive a massive success.
This November, Treasure Valley Subaru's General Manager, Rob Studebaker, once again partnered up with local radio talk show host, Kevin Miller, from KIDO 107.5 FM and 580 AM for Millers Mission. The goal is to collect donations- food, money, toys, and clothing for the Boise Rescue Mission Ministries. The Boise Rescue Mission has been restoring faith, hope, and family since 1958 all across the Treasure Valley, with six locations in Ada and Canyon Counties. Through community outreach, counselling, food, housing and general goodwill, they supply what is needed for Boise's homeless population. For one week, Kevin Miller, of KIDO Talk Radio 107.5 FM & 580 AM, camped out in front of a Walmart in Nampa, to collect turkeys and non-perishable foods for all six of the Mission’s facilities. The donations received during Miller’s Mission will make a big impact on the kids in their programs and the individuals and families in the rescue missions transitional living program. As part of our commitment to helping, many of the team members at Treasure Valley Subaru went on a shopping trip. They loaded carts to an overflowing level, from basic needs such as toiletries, towels and blankets, to clothes, and diapers. Their continued commitment to assisting the needs of those in our community has blossomed into an amazing cooperative effort with Kevin Miller and the Boise Rescue Mission.
Some of the staff at Treasure Valley Subaru teamed up with the Boise Rescue Mission For their annual Christmas banquet. It is such a good feeling knowing you are helping people in need. We served over 200 meals that day from turkey to pumpkin pies! The mission believes it is critical that women and children across the Treasure Valley have a safe and secure place to go for a hot meal so they aren't alone. For people who are homeless, a hot meal and a warm bed to sleep in there at the Mission can be the first step toward a better life.
Treasure Valley Subaru has partnered with 107.9 LITE-FM on their 2022 Christmas Wish. There's no doubt about it, 2022 has been another exceptionally tough year with many Idaho families experiencing some tough, unexpected, and overwhelming developments. We firmly believe Christmas should not feel like an extra burden for anyone in our community. This is especially true for kids and we believe LITE-FM Christmas Wish is a chance to make sure the joy of Christmas continues for them. Each year nominations open for people to submit a family in need. 107.9 LITE FM goes to work finding business throughout the area to fill the needs and spread the love. Our partnership this has led to us assisting a few families in our community. Something we truly enjoy and love to do. Carrie had lost her husband a few years ago and was struggling to provide Christmas for her 2 young sons. Treasure Valley Subaru leapt into action and went shopping. From toys, clothes and household necessities nothing was missed. Even gifts for mom were taken care of. On top of filling under the tree, we have also provided her with vehicle maintenance to ensure she can get everywhere she needs to go. Several members of our staff were present when everything was delivered to their home. Tears of joy and happiness appeared as Carrie was made aware of everything that 107.9 LITE-FM, Treasure Valley Subaru and other community partners had done. The event was finalized in an emotional moment of her finding out who had nominated her. She had no idea, it was a complete mystery, until her father-in-law's voice came over the phone. There was not a dry eye around.
Treasure Valley Subaru teamed up with The Jayden Deluca Foundation to collect toys for children at The Saint Luke's Cancer Center the Jayden DeLuca Foundation helps children and families fight cardiac diseases by offering support and encouragement to all those affected by pediatric heart conditions. Congenital heart defects occur frequently and are often life-threatening, yet research into them is grossly underfunded in relation to the prevalence of the disease. Of every dollar the government spends on medical funding only a fraction of a penny is directed toward congenital heart defect research. Since the founding of the Jayden DeLuca Foundation in 2008, death rates for congenital heart defects have declined by almost 30% due to advances made through research. Congenital heart defects are approximately 60 times more prevalent than childhood cancer. (source: CHOP) In the United States, twice as many children die from congenital heart defects each year than from all forms of childhood cancer combined, yet funding for pediatric cancer research is five times higher than funding for CHD. (source: American Heart Association) The Jayden Deluca Foundation was established in 2008 with the goal of helping other children and their families fight cardiac diseases and offer support and encouragement to all those affected by pediatric heart conditions.
Nick and Shelene are some of the most kind-hearted people. We had the pleasure of getting to know them when they purchased a Subaru Forester from us in October. We found out that they rescued 4 dogs! 4 Dogs seems like a lot, but they also already had 3 adult dogs. Shortly after they purchased the vehicle they had a litter of puppies, totaling 13 darling dogs! Nick and Shelene live on a large plot of land to cater to all of these animals and their needs. At Treasure Valley Subaru, we believe in helping. We had the pleasure of partnering with Rick and Carly from BoB FM to make it extra special! In the journey of figuring out their needs, we were able to work with Nick and Shelene's boss to make a special appointment to surprise her at work! TVS and Rick and Carly showed up to Shelene's work with as much dog food as we could find! Sending all the love to a family that truly makes a difference! #subarulovespets Thank you, Subaru!
Treasure Valley Subaru loves pets! They are proud to regularly partner with the Idaho Humane Society to pay it forward to homeless animals and provide life-saving medical care! Every gift made right now is doubled up to $1000, so your generosity will go twice as far.
Thank you so much to Treasure Valley Subaru for sponsoring West Valley Humane Society’s Howl’O’Ween event! The shelter was very excited to host their annual Howl’O’Ween event in person for the first time in years, but didn’t have the ability to make the event the best it could be. Treasure Valley Subaru immediately stepped in and helped the shelter host the largest event they’ve had since 2020! Treasure Valley Subaru supplied the shelter with everything to be successful and make an amazing, family fun event possible! Thanks to Treasure Valley Subaru, over 200 community members were able to tour the shelter and get candy, have a chalk art competition, paint pumpkins, decorate cookies and get their faces painted. We are so appreciative of Treasure Valley Subaru for supporting the shelter during this difficult time and helping us to Celebrate the life and legacy of Karly Cantrell while bringing the community together for an amazing and uplifting event.
As a private non profit organization, West Valley Humane Society relies on donations to support thousands of animals every year. When we were planning our annual art auction to help support animals in need, Treasure Valley Subaru immediately stepped up provided support and put together an auction basket to help raise money for the shelter. This amazing auction basket was filled with great items for any dog owner and was one of the most popular auction items. Their generous donation led to auction donations to go directly to support the medical care of animals who need a fresh start. We are so thankful to Treasure Valley Subaru for always finding ways to support animals in the Treasure Valley Community and helping to make our art auction a successful event!
On the last weekend of September 2022, my organization, Guardian Paws Service dogs used the large conference room at Treasure Valley Subaru for a meeting. This room was a great help to allow a presentation of documents so that corrections can be made at the time instead of little ones here and there. We are a very small nonprofit but with the help of Treasure Valley Subaru we are able to act like a larger organization with the projector and conference room. This allowed us to get more work done. I am so pleased that they are going to allow us to work in their awesome conference room so we can bring our organization up to speed. And they also allow us to use the dog park and three acres next door
Since 2020 when they opened, Treasure Valley Subaru has partnered with St Vincent De Paul to help those in need in our community. Mary, a member of the church, spends her days caring for her elderly parents and other members of the church. Performing tasks like shopping and ensuring they make every doctors appointment. Unfortunately, her vehicle at the time broke down and the repairs would be rather costly. After hearing about what she does on a daily basis, and the importance of having reliable transportation, we reached out to our dear friend Rob Studebaker at Treasure Valley Subaru. Rob and his team jumped into action to find a solution that could keep Mary on the road and assisting others. Treasure Valley Subaru was able to locate the perfect vehicle, a Subaru Forester. Safe, reliable and able to get Mary and her passengers where they need to go year-round. They have even graciously assisted in providing continued maintenance to ensure the reliability of the vehicle. Once again, Treasure Valley Subaru has demonstrated their commitment to helping our community and we look forward to a continued partnership with them.
Guardian Paws Service Dogs wants to thank Treasure Valley Subaru for our 3rd annual Veteran’s Day lunch. Our local credit union, Idaho Central Credit Union, joined us this year. We smoked some amazing pork roasts for lunch. And provided a lunch with potato salad, macaroni salad, baked beans, chips, and cake for approximately 200 Veterans and their family members. Our local veterans were so thankful to have a place they could come to enjoy a meal with other veterans, and the We are so excited to start planning our 4th annual luncheon for 2024. Thank you so much Treasure Valley Subaru for giving back to our community in so many ways. We are blessed to call you part of the Guardian Paws Service Dog family.
10-year-old Gertrude was brought into our shelter by a Good Samaritan who found her wandering the streets. She was heavily matted with cheatgrass embedded deep into her fur, causing pain and infections in her legs and paws. Poor Gertrude was also suffering from eye and ear infections. Our Shelter Medical Center sprung to action, shaving her down, removing the cheatgrass, and treating all of her ailments to ease the pain and make her more comfortable. She then spent much-needed time in a foster home for rest and TLC. Throughout the nearly three months of being with us, Gertrude never let anything slow down her wagging tail or hinder her sweet personality. She joined our adoption floor late yesterday afternoon and was adopted first thing when we opened this morning! Congratulations, Gertrude, we are so happy for you! Help us #MakeADogsDay! Join the Idaho Humane Society and Treasure Valley Subaru in making dogs feel extra loved and helping underdogs find homes.
The Idaho Humane Society celebrated Subaru Loves Pets at Treasure Valley Subaru on October 27th! This dynamic partnership ensures pets of all ages, sizes, and species have a chance at happiness in loving homes. The Idaho Humane Society was onsite highlighting their Foster Program with Margo, a bulldog in foster care to treat a few medical issues. Accompanying Margo were Rita and Roscoe, two happy doodles looking for their new owners. Rounding out the fun we had a litter of fluffy kittens looking for all the snuggles. It is important animals have a safe place to rest and recover before they are ready for adoption. Foster animals need varying degrees of time and attention, and we are accepting new loving foster homes. If interested in fostering, you can learn more at idahohumanesociety.org. Treasure Valley Subaru loves pets, and the Idaho Humane Society loves Treasure Valley Subaru.
Treasure Valley Subaru teamed up with Jayden DeLuca Foundation for its 14th annual golf tournament. Participants were given the opportunity to win a 2023 Subaru Crosstrek by getting a hole in one at Eagle Hills golf course. Unfortunately, no one got the job done, but the foundation was able to raise a great deal of money to help with their cause. The Jayden Deluca Foundation was established in 2008 with the goal of helping children and their families fight cardiac diseases and offer support and encouragement to all those affected by pediatric heart conditions. They look to promote awareness of cardiac diseases and to aid in further scientific and medical research of pediatric heart conditions. Treasure Valley Subaru is committed to assisting this organization in their fight to raise awareness and assist those in need.
Treasure Valley Subaru is a “blue-ribbon” sponsor for the 2022 See Spot Walk Fundraising Festival! Not only are they supporting this amazing event, but they also support homeless animals year-round by providing financial support to the Idaho Humane Society. Treasure Valley Subaru teamed up with the Idaho Humane Society (IHS) to celebrate our community of dogs and their people at the 30th annual See Spot Walk Fundraiser and Celebration. As a Blue-Ribbon Sponsor of the event, Treasure Valley Subaru helped raise almost $130,000 to ensure Treasure Valley animals are protected from neglect and cruelty. Treasure Valley Subaru also helps the IHS by donating vehicles and will maintain them to help in the transportation of animals to their adoption center, so they have the opportunity to find their forever home.
On September 23rd, 2022 Treasure Valley Subaru received a phone call from Michael from Guardian Paws saying a veteran named Bill who had recently lost his wife was in need. The car that Bill was living in was broken down. Treasure Valley Subaru’s GM, Rob, talked to him to let him know they would help him. They towed the vehicle to their lot in Nampa and paid to fix it. The service folks at Treasure Valley Subaru jumped in with no hesitation to get Bill back on the road. Rob also called around and got Bill a hotel room for the night so he wasn't sleeping outdoors and gave him money to eat since all he had to eat was spam. Bill is now on his way to North Carolina to live with his brother.
Treasure Valley Children's Theater (TVCT) presented a world premiere play at Treasure Valley Subaru on the custom Mobile Stage on Saturday, Sept. 24. The performances was American Sign Language interpreted and offered for free to families across the Treasure Valley. The 45 minute play, Voyage of the Forgotten, is a new play written by Boise native and TVCT Associate Educator, Noah Charles Moody. Voyage of the Forgotten opens on a unicorn, a dragon and a minotaur who find themselves without a life raft (or ark) to survive the great flood. Just when it seems there's no hope for these three unlikely friends, some visitors from above beam them up for a chance at a happy ending. The play is packed with relatable humor, colorful characters, and - most importantly - a reminder of the values of true friends, saying goodbye, and creating lasting memories. Voyage of the Forgotten will tour local elementary schools this fall. A BIG thanks to Treasure Valley Subaru for providing a space to share this delightful play with our community.
Thanks to Treasure Valley Subaru, Guardians Paws Service Dogs was able to hold its first annual car show. It would not have been a success if we had not been able to partner with them. Not only did they provide the awesome location for the show but they provided man power and several other items. We were able to keep several pools filled with ice and water so that both two legged and four legged alike were able to have cold water. We had a great turnout of both participants and people as well. This show would not have happened without the support of TVS. They allowed us to hold the car show in the grass lot next to the dealership which was a great location because once the cars were set up it drew in people that were just driving by that might have not stopped at the show otherwise. With the help of Treasure Valley Subaru, Guardian Paws Service Dogs was able to raise over $4,000. This is going to allow us to purchase some new training aids to assist in real life scenario training. Most of all it will allow us to outfit over half of our teams with the gear they need to fulfill the duties of a service dog team.
Don and Michelle have purchased tickets the last few years to give back to the community never expecting to win. Michelle had been riding her back to work in this summer heat and never expected to be winning a brand new Impreza. She works as a wildlife biologist for the Fish and Game and there could not have been a better person as someone who cares for nature and the community to win this vehicle.
We got matched with Birch Elementary and adopted six classrooms to donate school supplies to! Each class received lots of goodies including a white board, coloring supplies, and Clorox wipes to help keep everything clean! It was an absolute pleasure to be able to meet the wonderful staff and kids that attend this wonderful school.
Treasure Valley Subaru was honored to donate $1500 to St Vincent DePaul for their annual fundraising dinner. We are blessed to be able to help such an awesome organization!
"West Valley Humane Society is in desperate need of wet kitten food. We are overflowing with kittens, who all rely on wet food to get enough nutrients to stay healthy. In the past 4 weeks alone, we have taken in over 400 cats, who all need our support. When a kitten does not have wet food, their chances of survival decreases significantly. As a young kitten is getting weaned off of their mothers milk, they are not able to chew hard food efficiently, leaving their only option for sufficient nutrient intake through the wet pate kitten food. The first few weeks of a kitten's life is extremely important developmentally for the cat. In the first few weeks, their brains are growing rapidly and their body's get larger very quickly. We need your support to help set these kittens up for success!" Thanks to Treasure Valley Subaru for there donations

Treasure Valley Subaru partnered with the Idaho Horsemen to raise $4,200 for the Alzheimer's Association. Game attendees purchased small, blue footballs and at halftime, threw them onto the field. Standing in the middle of the field as Big J, host of The Morning After on 100.3 The X Rocks. Whoever got closest to Big J won a 65" TV!! But it wasn't just a good time, although throwing footballs at Big J is always a good time. These critical funds forward the mission of the Alzheimer's Association in our community. These dollars work to bring needed care and support to those with Alzheimer's and other dementias and to their families and to advocate on their behalf. The Alzheimer's Association also uses these funds to fund the best Alzheimer's research and to increase awareness of the disease. The Alzheimer's Association is deeply thankful for all those who made this happen. Without partners like Treasure Valley Subaru, the Idaho Horsemen, and Big J, they simply cannot continue their mission of building a world without Alzheimer's and all other dementia. If you would like to join them, you can donate here: https://act.alz.org/site/TR/LongestDay2022/TheLongestDay?team_id=733289&pg=team&fr_id=15144 The Alzheimer's Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research. Stand with us today to help achieve our vision of a world without Alzheimer's tomorrow. Alzheimer's is a type of dementia that affects memory, thinking and behavior. Symptoms eventually grow severe enough to interfere with daily tasks.
Oleh and Iryna and their two kids traveled for a month to escape the conditions of war in Ukraine. This family left home with hardly anything, and came to live with family here in the United States. They had gathered $4000 from a fundraiser put together by a family member that works at The Diamond Girls in Boise and with their help they gathered enough money to hopefully purchase a reliable vehicle. The Diamond Girls contacted TVS and asked if we would be able to help this family find a reliable vehicle for 4k. We knew that with their story we would find them the perfect car, but here at Treasure Valley Subaru we believe in helping those in need. The family came in thinking they were purchasing an Acura MDX, little did they know, it was a gift. We wish them all the happiness of a safe start in America.
Treasure Valley Subaru loves pets! They are proud to regularly partner with the Idaho Humane Society to pay it forward to homeless animals and provide life-saving medical care! Every gift made right now is doubled up to $1000, so your generosity will go twice as far. Thank you, Treasure Valley Subaru!
Treasure Valley Subaru had the pleasure to team up with Alzheimer's association to help donate money we raised $2,843 the first night selling Footballs to throw at Big J in the field at a target. The Alzheimer's Association funds independent researchers worldwide through our International Research Grant Program. Currently, the Association is investing over $300M to more than 920 projects in 45 countries, on 6 continents. Our grants have funded some of the most instrumental research in Alzheimer's and dementia science. One of the most common signs of Alzheimer’s disease, especially in the early stage, is forgetting recently learned information. Others include forgetting important dates or events, asking for the same questions over and over, and increasingly needing to rely on memory aids (e.g., reminder notes or electronic devices) or family members for things they used to handle on their own. This is why Treasure Valley Subaru is so passionate about this association to help fight this disease. Our goal is to help the families and individuals suffering from Alzheimer's.
Treasure Valley Subaru teamed up with the Idaho Humane Society (IHS) to support one of our most vulnerable populations: kittens! This event featured adoptable kittens but, more importantly, discussed the life-saving measures and the number of resources needed to save felines right here in Idaho. In addition, Treasure Valley Subaru asked that visitors bring in kitten and cat food to support the nonprofit's sheltering and feeding of felines. Last year, IHS adopted 3,309 cats and kittens and nurtured 1,765 special needs animals in foster care, most of which were kittens.

Subaru Loves the Earth Celebration Day! We had the pleasure of picking up our beautiful earth around the Treasure Valley! There is nothing more refreshing than blue skies, Subarus, great company, the smiles of kiddos eager to help pick up our planet, our amazing ambassadors, and knowing we made a difference in nature today!
Today Guardian Paws Service Dogs was given a donation check from our Treasure Valley Subaru family. This is by far the most generous donation we have received to date. We were given a check for over $45,000! That is just about twice as much as the donation we received last year from the Treasure Valley Subaru in 2020. I am still in shock that a little program that my husband and I founded almost 7 years ago, received such an amazing gift from such an amazing crew. I know this donation wouldn’t be possible without the phenomenal sales team at TVS. Our sales team is the best and truly cares about Guardian Paws. The money donated to us this year will be used to continue our goal in the Treasure and Magic Valley’s to “Save Veterans One Dog At A Time”.
What a terrific event; the Idaho Humane Society teamed up with Treasure Valley Subaru to help keep your furry friends safe! Treasure Valley Subaru generously donated 100 microchips to community members' pets on March 23rd. A microchip can mean a successful reunion if pets ever get separated from their loving owners! Veterinarians, rescues, and shelters can scan for a microchip to discover owner information such as name, addresses, and phone numbers. As a result, cats are twenty times more likely to reunite with their owners, and dogs are 2.5% more likely to get reunited. Thank you to Treasure Valley Subaru for providing this fantastic event!

We adopted Edison 2 years ago about a year after the tragic loss of our other tuxedo kitty. He’s been the best security for me and my daughter! We almost lost him 2 weeks ago when I came home from work and he was moaning and trying to hide I called everywhere to get him in to avoid ER cost but it was too late in the evening. Ada Veterinary hospital was kind enough to check him for a bladder obstruction free of charge they did that and sent us directly to West Ada Veterinary Hospital as it was the only thing open 24 hours we were told the obstruction could burst and he would die my daughter was beside herself so we rushed him there they assessed him assured us it was just a blockage the catheter him and he should be good to go home the next day that wasn’t the case they continued to catheter him every day remove it but he could not go to the bathroom this hospital would’ve continued to do it over and over and over had I not insisted on taking him to the Idaho Humane Society within two hours of him being at the Humane Society he was diagnosed with a bladder stone which was causing the blockage for him to go to the bathroom we were elated to find out that this was a very easy procedure that would be done the next day had he had not been prodded with a catheter for five days at west vet he could’ve probably come home in a couple of days but because they did that his urethra was scar tissue damage and needed time to heal.. My final bill at West vet was $4000!!! $4000 who can afford that and I would continue to tell them every day I could not afford him being here but they gave me no alternative! How can a hospital full of veterinarians not spot a stone as quickly as Idaho Humane Society is beyond me! I know hindsight is 2020 but I should’ve pulled him out after two days at West vet and taking him directly to the Humane Society I will always regret that Our stress levels are through the roof both mentally physically and financially! Thanks to Dr. Stroap, Dr Brownlee All the clinicians At the Idaho Humane Society for saving our baby, We are so happy to have him home! Thank you To all who helped financially I’m not sure what We would do without you! Tami and Ryian Thompson
Having PTSD can be extremely isolating, so having a place where our veterans feel safe and relaxed is critical while training their service dog. We, Guardian paws Service Dog Family, will never be able to put into words what Treasure Valley Subaru has done for the Veterans of Idaho.

Treasure Valley Subaru Is a proud sponsor to help with suicide prevention. Needless to say Jeret Peterson was too young to die from a self inflicted gunshot wound. Life hit hard at a young age enduring loss at only 5 years old. Blindsided, his (18yo) sister passed away from a tragic accident caused by a drunk driver. Peterson watched in horror as a friend committed suicide in front of him, causing a ripple effect and severe trauma. Unfortunately, these events lead to his first suicide attempt in September of 2007. Several months later in Turin Speedy came out with a vengeance. He wanted to be known for pushing the envelope. He was one of the worlds most risk taking and innovated freestyle skiers. Loved ones called him "Speedy" and have fond memories they'll always treasure. His journey was a roller coaster that sadly came to an end. He took his took his life at the early age of 29 on July 25th 2011. Many have come together to help those struggling with depression to make a difference and help those before it's too late.
Over the last several years, Treasure Valley Subaru has partnered with St Vincent De Paul to help those in need in our community. The president of the organization, Mike Gallagher, and Rob Studebaker, our GM have developed a great friendship. Mike will reach out to Rob when he finds people in dire need of help. Mr. Gallagher reached out to Rob a few weeks ago to let Rob know he had a couple in desperate need of help. The couple, Adam and Jennifer, have been living in their broken down Dodge Caravan in a Fred Meyer parking lot in Boise for a year. The vehicle was barely running and has no heat and isn’t sufficient transportation. Adam lost his job as the facility supervisor at Boise State University during early Covid, and Jennifer was also affected by the pandemic and lost her employment in the hostility industry. Their bad luck continued as the cost of living in the Treasure Valley doubled over the last 18 months, and the late fall cold spell and nasty conditions brought about by winter created a very dangerous situation for Adam and Jennifer. To make matters worse, their van was broken into and all of their worldly possessions were stolen and 2 windows were broken. They did their best to seal off the van with cardboard and duct tape to try to stay warm. Mike knew they'd struggle to survive without immediate assistance. With great perseverance, they both were able to secure employment. Adam found a job with WinCo Foods in their warehouse, and Jennifer is now working for an aviation company, but without transportation there struggle continued. So, with the help of Mike Gallagher, they were able to scrape together $1000 to buy a vehicle from Treasure Valley Subaru, as basic transportation to get them back and forth to their jobs, and to keep them warm as they seek permanent shelter. After hearing their story, our GM, Rob Studebaker and his awesome staff decided to help. Rob and staff invited Adam and Jennifer to the facility at Treasure Valley Subaru for a surprise. After vetting many vehicles in the service department, Kevin Neumann, the assistant service manager was excited to announce he had found the perfect vehicle for them. It was big enough to sleep in if necessary, and has a great heater. Upon arrival, Rob and staff walked Adam and Jennifer to our delivery area to present them with their new vehicle. It was filled with fuel, insurance paid, and it was free. After signing their paper work, Mike, Adam, and Jennifer were invited to the delivery area where they were met by Rob and 50 or so employees who were smiling and waiting for them with a warm congratulatory clap and hugs all around. There was not a dry eye in the building. Treasure Valley Subaru is blessed to be able to help those in need.
63 animals in need of a home at the Idaho Humane Society. There is nothing more selfless than caring for helpless animals. The Humane Society makes sure that these sweet animals are fed, played with, and loved. Caring for so many animals can get expensive and every donation matters. In January, Treasure Valley Subaru has been able to donate a total of 384 lbs of cat food! What a celebration!! Helping one animal one bowl at a time. Thank you for being apart of the Treasure Valley Subaru Family, you make a difference!
Treasure Valley Subaru has been such a blessing to Guardian Paws Service Dogs, GPSD.

We will continue to pay forward their kindness and generosity.

Our ongoing partnership with Kevin Miller, the Boise Rescue Mission and other will continue to grow stronger and help many more people throughout the Treasure Valley.
This little pup was found shivering in the rain, clearly injured, and needing medical assistance. A Good Samaritan brought him to an emergency clinic, where Humane Officers were called to pick up and provide medical care as he was a stray pet without identified owners. Humane Officers arrived quickly and brought him back to our veterinary team for urgent care. The next day, the puppy’s grateful owner came forward and relayed that their puppy had been lost and on his own for a week. We are unsure how the dog had broken its jaw, but knew that the road would be long towards recovery because of the decay that had set in. Later that day, the owner made the hard decision to surrender him to our shelter, unable to provide the long-term medical care and the support needed for recovery. This puppy is just one of the many animals getting new chances at life thanks to supporters like you. This October, Treasure Valley Subaru is proud to be one of those sponsors, providing $100 for every pet adopted at our shelter through the #SubaruLovesPets initiative, up to $3100. We are grateful to give these second chances at our shelter thanks to adopters, donors, volunteers, and supporters! #SubaruLovesPets #SubaruLoves

Every year St Vincent de Paul of Southwest Idaho has organized a raffle to help cover the expenses of annual operation. Treasure Valley Subaru had the pleasure of assisting with 2 vehicles this year. One of the winners has an amazing tale. Claire Little had just graduated from a high school and went to Sunday mass with her family. After hearing about the raffle she decided to use some of her graduation money to purchase a single ticket. Weeks went by and she continually told her family that she was going to win. The day of the raffle her family was unable to attend. None of the family were watching the live stream as they were preparing everything for her journey to start college at Baylor university in Texas. Then it happened. Her parents received a phone call from a friend who was at the raffle event. Tons of excitement and a few phone calls later she found out she had indeed won a Subaru Forester. Ralph May from St Vincent reached out to the dealership to set up a full experience delivery for Claire. Upon arrival the fact she had won still did not seem real. After educating her on the car, showing her how to use every feature and explaining maintenance the time had come. She was handed the keys to HER Forester and told it was time to put some miles on it. The smile never left her face, in fact I think its still there. The next morning she left to start her first year in her training as a nurse! Congrats Claire, and we all wish you the best as you start the next chapter of your education!

Today I had the great pleasure of speaking with 27 year old Mariel Zuspic, the winner of the St. Vincent de Paul car raffle (car being donated by Team Subaru of Nampa). Mariel has a truly amazing story and was in a need of a car. She was previously driving a 2001 Jeep Cherokee that was given to her after he uncle passed. “It was a great car that my twin sister [Emily] and I used to go back and forth to college in Spokane,” Mariel stated. She enjoys having a big car because she works at a non-profit in Boise that requires her to haul big things around in. Roughly two winters ago, she turned on the heat and debris came flying out. When she took it in, the mechanics said that there was a mouse nest around the vents. The mechanics told her that they could not clean it out and they would need to order a new part for it. She went numerous weeks without heat in the winter because of her busy schedule. A bit later, she started having battery problems. Mariel’s battery died six times! When she took it in this time, the mechanics said the same thing, a mouse nest around the engine. The mice had been chewing on the wires and cords of the battery. At this point she knew she needed a different car. She heard about the raffle and decided to enter. Out of 600 entries, hers got picked. “Thank you Team Mazda Subaru and St. Vincent de Paul for this incredible opportunity! Never in a million years did I think I would win! This gift is truly life changing!” Mariel said. Emily, her twin sister, will be getting her Jeep after it gets fixed up. Congratulations Mariel and enjoy your brand new jasper green 2019 Subaru Forester!
Team Subaru was very pleased to present Ron Overton with a 2006 Chrysler Town & Country van on Friday, 5/10/19. It was brought to Team's attention by Operation Grateful Hearts that Ron, a disabled veteran, had no reliable transportation to get to and from his medical appointments after his truck broke down and left him stranded. Ron, who was just released from the hospital this week, was very grateful for the donation and having the peace of mind of knowing that he can get where he needs to go without having to depend on others to accommodate him. What an appropriate coincidence that this event would take place during Military Appreciation month and provide Team Subaru with an opportunity to show our love for our veterans.

TEAM SUBARU OF NAMPA DONATES $1000 TO SUPPORT BOISE RESCUE MISSIONS KIDS CAMP TO SEND UNDERPRIVLEDGED KIDS TO CAMP. WHAT A GREAT ORGANIZATION!
As a kid, I remember driving around the back side of Lizard Butte in Marsing, Idaho looking for milk weed and Monarch Caterpillar eggs that I could take home. I really enjoyed feeding the caterpillars once they hatched. I loved making sure that they had food so that they could grow and I could watch them make their cocoons. My favorite part of all of this was when the butterflies would emerge from their cocoons and I got to release them back into the wild. I was excited to hear that Subaru's Love Promise for the month of April was supporting the Butterfly Heroes Program. I decided to be a Butterfly Hero myself and share with my son the story of these majestic creatures. We were saddened to learn that there is a rapid decline in the Monarch Butterfly population. After learning about the wonderful journey that the Monarch takes each year, my 5-year-old son Michael thought it would be a great idea to plant our milkweed seed in our family garden so that the Monarchs would have a place to lay their eggs and to help attract other pollinators to our garden at the same time.Michael and I had a great time learning about the Monarchs and helping them fight the rapid decline in their population. We cannot wait for our milkweed to grow, so that we can watch for the Monarchs Butterflies come to visit. Thank you Subaru, the National Wildlife Federation and Team Subaru of Nampa for this great opportunity to be Butterfly Heroes!
