Floral Heart Project - Loretta L

The Floral Heart Project was started by my sister in law, Kristina Libby, to help provide healing, compassion and sympathy for those impacted by Covid-19. When the pandemic first hit NYC, where Kristina now resides but a Maine native, she was heartbroken that thousands of people were dying without funerals and their families were left without the traditional grieving practices. So, she started to make floral hearts to visualize her grief and to allow others to access their own grief and to have a moment of comfort. She started to place these hearts in different locations from Times Square to The Brooklyn Bridge and they were well received. People came to mourn their lost loved ones and to find the closure they needed. She chose flowers as they are a traditional gift during loss and hearts because they are a simple way to showcase love and support. On March 1, 2021 because of The Floral Heart Project, 100+ hearts were laid across the United States. When Samantha and Mark Politte of Stanley Subaru were first introduced to the idea of sponsoring a floral heart, they didn’t hesitate for a second and fully embraced the project! With their generous support, along with The Bud Connection, a beautiful heart was laid in Knowlton Park in Ellsworth Maine and another at The Town Green in Blue Hill Maine to honor lives lost from COVID-19. I was truly honored to be a part of this event.

Maine Coast Hospital grateful for Stanley Subaru - joann b

Stanley Subaru has been sponsoring an annual fund-raiser called "Test Drives for the Cure" since 2009 for the benefit of Women's health at Northern Light Maine Coast Hospital in Ellsworth, Maine. Every October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Stanley Subaru holds this fund-raiser to support a healthy, thriving community. They've raised over $23,000 for preventative breast health care since the program began. Stanley guests can take a test drive, no purchase necessary, and Stanley donates $10 in their name to mammography scholarships at Northern Light Maine Coast Hospital. This year, due to COVID, every vehicle was sanitized inside and out between every use. Also, Stanley's guests were able to donate $5 and receive a pink ribbon magnet that says, "Driven for a cure," and Stanley matched it with another $5. The $10 total donation was donated to local mammography at the Breast Clinic at Northern Light Maine Coast Hospital in Ellsworth. From all of us at Northern Light Maine Coast Hospital, thank you to all of the folks at Stanley Subaru who have been and continue to be so very generous and supportive towards women's health in our community. Stanley Subaru is truly a leader in helping everyone in our community get the life-saving care they need.

Mulan Met Her Soulmate at Stanley Subaru - Kaitlyn M

While kittens are usually easy to place in homes, Mulan had a couple struggles: for one, her brothers were very fluffy and more outgoing than her, so they stole most of the attention. Mulan’s litter came from a feral mother, and so she wasn’t sure about humans even though she was young when she came to the shelter. She would often hide behind her siblings or bed when someone came to meet her. So we used the opportunity we had at the Stanley Subaru adoption events in October to educate the public on shy cats while also sharing cute photos staff managed to take of Mulan when she relaxed. It didn’t take long after that for her to get adopted by a wonderful woman who has since kept us updated with progress reports on Mulan, now named Lovey because she’s just that sweet!

Ross - Making Wishlist Magic Happen! - Kaitlyn M

Placing kittens in homes isn’t particularly difficult at a shelter - everyone loves cute baby animals, after all. What is difficult is managing the demand for kittens, especially cute and friendly ones like Ross. Ross came from a big litter, so we found the best way to line up perfect homes for them was to create educational materials and flyers about “wish list applications” at the adoption events Stanley Subaru hosted in October. This has helped the community learn more about the adoption process, and as a result, many of our kittens have gone to good homes without having to grow up in the shelter, which is so much healthier for their immune systems and their emotional welfare.

Neptune & Gandalf - Everyone Needs a Friend! - Kaitlyn M

Most people who want a cat want the ones that come right up and play or love on them. Gandalf and Neptune are both young boys, and the interesting thing is they actually didn’t know each other until they met at the shelter community room. Neptune was returned to the shelter because he hid so much his owner felt they weren’t connecting, whereas Gandalf was found as a stray and had a hard time finding a home because of his unpredictable nature - was he going to love you or smack you, it was like a roulette! Then these boys met and connected in a way no one expected, and soon Neptune was always seen trailing after Gandalf and shelter staff knew we didn’t want them to be separated. But they had both been in the shelter for months and were having a hard time being noticed, so how could it work out? We pitched them as a bonded pair anyway and used the opportunities we had at the October Stanley Subaru adoption events to tell people about this amazing pair of cats. And happily, it worked! They were adopted together and now have a family of their own.

Gus & Josie - Friends Fur Life - Kaitlyn M

Finding homes for senior cats can be hard enough, never mind when you have bonded ones, but we knew sweet Gus and Josie had to stay together. Big gray Gus is 16 years old but full of spunk and loves his little sister, Josie, and it was clear that tiny black Josie, who is 6 years old, needed to be by her brother to feel safe. Though they lost their original home, they didn’t have to lose each other, and so we took pictures of the two together and posted them at our adoption events with Stanley Subaru throughout October. Happily, a wonderful family met them and decided to take them home!

Mother Maya & Pups All Find Homes! - Kaitlyn M

Maya came to us with her six newborn puppies and her mom, Josie. While Josie and Maya were sweethearts, neither had received much training in their few years of life, and so although the puppies were quickly spoken for and lined up for homes, it took a little more work to find suitable homes for Josie and Maya. Maya loves everyone but has a tendency to tear through a place like a wrecking ball and needs extensive training to help her learn house manners, so we made sure to feature this mom of six at our adoption events with Stanley Subaru throughout October in hopes we could reach a new audience that might take the chance on her. Fortunately for Maya, her new mom saw her and fell in love, and the two couldn’t be happier together!

Rocky Found a Forever Home! - Kaitlyn M

Rocky is almost 7 years old and an extremely sweet couch potato - when he’s with humans. However, he has such a high prey drive that he can’t coexist with other animals and needs to not only be an only dog but kept away from neighboring pets. He was in the shelter for months throughout 2020, and that was his third long stint here. Finding him a perfect home was difficult, so when we lined up adoption events with Stanley Subaru throughout the month of October, we made sure to feature Rocky prominently and be honest about his needs. Fortunately, this helped spread the word about him to a new audience, and the perfect match showed up to meet him and take him home! Thank you so much, Stanley Subaru, for helping Rocky find his forever home!

Maggie the Medical Wonder Dog - Kaitlyn M

Maggie was surrendered to us as an older puppy experiencing seizures that her family couldn’t afford to treat, and though she was a lovebug, she struggled to read dog cues and find a home. Then she made her first public appearance at a Subaru Loves Pets event in February 2020, and she was adopted shortly after that. Unfortunately, tragedy struck her home, and she ended up back at the shelter - during another month when Subaru was sponsoring the shelter, of all times! This time, she was barely at the SPCA for a day! The perfect family was already waiting for her where one member also experienced seizures and knew exactly how this pup felt.

Teacher Appreciation with The Bud Connection - Barbara C

When seeking a co-sponsor for this special promotion I knew immediately that I wanted to have Stanley Subaru partner with me. I have in the past worked with them on events and they are class all the way. They graciously helped us with the distribution of flowers to the Blue Hill School district and provided support in any way we asked them. The response from the teachers and community has been amazing. I included a picture of one teacher, Dan Stillman at MDI High School, he may have said it best: "You helped to make these difficult first weeks of school feel like a community event! That is what a great partnership like this does to bring the community together. Thank you Stanley Subaru for being so awesome!

A Community Partner We Can Depend On - Vera F

As a small, local organization with big goals, we at the Bar Harbor Food Pantry depend on our community partners to ensure that we deliver on our mission to ensure that everyone has food on their table. And we know that we can rely on Stanley Subaru to help us with the heavy load - quite literally! Each month we receive a truckload of food from Good Shepherd Food Bank that helps us stock our shelves for the month. We all buckle down for a long day of unloading and organizing, prepared for sore muscles the next day. But this month our delivery day looked - and sure felt - different. Working alongside a team from Stanley Subaru, we unpacked our delivery in record time. They were a kind and hardworking crew, clearly passionate about both their work at the dealership and our work at the pantry. Plus, we are pretty sure they bring good luck - it was the first time in months that it didn’t rain on order day! A huge thank you to the folks at Stanley Subaru for their dedication to our community! We so look forward to continuing this partnership.

My service today - Craig W

I was at your dealership today for service on our Forester. I just wanted to take a minute of your time to thank you for all of the safety precautions you extend to your staff and customers. Everyone I saw had a mask on. Even all of the customers! I feel like they took guidance from the atmosphere you created to keep everyone safe. I appreciated the hand sanitizers placed around the seating area, the seat distances, the sanitized keys, pens, safety shields, etc., etc. My service technician was excellent. As I visit a (very) few businesses, as necessity arises, I have found many have slacked in the precautions. Not so at your dealership. Thank you for taking the extra steps and costs to protect us, and your staff, during these difficult times.

Hancock County Healthcare workers Feeling the Love - Kelley C

How nice to pull in to the hospital to be greeted by such a warm and friendly sign. Earlier this month, Stanley Subaru posted "thank you" banners on the Northern Light Maine Coast (Ellsworth) and Northern Light Blue Hill Hospital campuses. Stanley Subaru has been a long-time, devoted supporter of healthcare in our local communities and we are so very grateful for their partnership. During this challenging time (for ALL), they went yet another step further. Knowing that for those working on the frontlines - schedules have been turned upside down, families are patching childcare together, and we are all taking one day at a time...Stanley Subaru is offering free, no-contact pick up and drop off from both our hospitals for scheduled car service (including a disinfectant wipe down). As many of our healthcare workers are not able to prioritize car maintenance, this is a gift of convenience and peace of mind. We are proud to work alongside such a caring business. Stanley Subaru -- Thanks for showing us some love!

Back on the road - Jackie W

You know the saying, “You don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone!” Well, it’s sort of how I felt when our van broke down. I knew I loved it, and I knew I needed it, I just didn’t know how lost I’d feel without it. Especially since it became such an essential part of the store while delivering food to our elderly neighbors or those going without. So for the last week, I have had totes spread out around my kitchen and through my personal van, so that I could make the bags to deliver. It made me love the van even more and miss it like crazy. Stanley Subaru took the van and ended up replacing quite a few parts that went bad and then the engine control module had to be replaced. Needless to say, it would have cost us a small fortune to fix, which with the shut down, would have been scary. Stanley Subaru fixed and paid for the entire thing and I cannot be more grateful to have them as part of the Community Closet family. I hope you guys will help me in thanking them. This van is vital to us and we LOVE it! The ESSENTIAL MOBILE UNIT is back. When we got it back today, my brother and I took inventory, made a shopping list, and got it filled back up and ready to get back out there! Thank you Mark and the whole Subaru crew! You guys are the best!!!!

Subaru Loves Pets SPCA of Hancock County - Nicole M

At the SPCA of Hancock County, we know that we can count on Subaru. Maybe not totally in the way you might think - although since our staff parking lot looks like a Subaru lot, yes, we know we can count on our Subaru to get us to work! But we're thinking more along the lines of how often Stanley Subaru is there for the community and especially for the SPCA and the homeless dogs and cats who call our shelter their - temporary - home. Stanley Subaru helps in so many ways from supply drives, to adoption events, covering adoption fees for special adoption drives, taking care of the service for our much-used shelter van, and much-appreciated financial support. There are so many reasons that we are grateful for Stanley Subaru. They are truly life-savers. The dogs and cats who find their forever homes because of the SPCA of Hancock County are four-footed proof! It is for these reasons that the SPCA presented Stanley Subaru with our Humane Business Award. A huge woof and purr of thanks to you, Stanley Subaru!

Donations Donations - Tom K

Our Subaru Outback has been a huge help for our Meals on Wheels program. Before we had our Subaru, we were always worried about whether or not we had a vehicle big enough to transport donations for our program. Different things like pet food, large amounts of canned foods, Turkey Baskets during Thanksgiving, donated Christmas presents and anything else you can think of were all concerns before our Subaru. Now that we have our Outback, we have the extra space provided by the hatchback area and we can almost always fit donations for our programs. If we can't, we at least know that the Outback can take most of it which helps our staff not have to use their own personal vehicles. We can't say enough good things about our Subaru Outback. Subaru is helping to create a huge amount of impact in our area just by donating this car to programs like ours!

Perfect partners - Nicholas T

It's a dream of any nonprofit Executive Director to start a new position receiving a large donation check. That dream came true when I started at The Grand in Ellsworth and met Mark Politte of Stanley Subaru. I knew very little about Mark and Stanley, but what a great first impression - I thought, "This just might be a great community business and a great community leader". Three years later, I know this IS a great community business and a great community leader". Mark's actions speak volumes more than any financial contributions. He recognizes The Grand as a vital community center for arts and entertainment and an anchor for downtown - it's a great community organization and a great community leader. So we have the Stanley Subaru Stage at The Grand and we have the perfect partners on a mission to enrich and nurture community.

Thank you! - Lesley R

When I reached out to Mark Politte, owner of Stanley Subaru, I never imagined the response that I would get. Comfort Cases is a national charity whose mission is to bring some dignity and comfort to children as they transition into care. These children are often removed from their birth homes with nothing. If they have any possessions, they are generally carried in a trash bag. There is nothing good about that, and Comfort Cases is dedicated to eliminating that practice. I spearhead the Comfort Cases effort in Maine. With the help of Spencer Patterson King, Communications Coordinator, Stanley Subaru put together a fund-raiser to support Comfort Cases. They asked their customers to donate $20 to help pack Cases for children in foster care. They matched these donations, purchased backpacks, and then their staff went out and bought contents for the bags including brand new PJs, blankets, toiletries, journals with pencils and pens as well as books for children ages 0-19. The people behind the push for Comfort Cases at the dealership are Jen Rankin, Becky, Mark, Addie, Dawn, and Jen Cross. These kind, generous, and dedicated people carried Cases throughout the dealership to get donations, shopped for contents, and carefully and thoughtfully packed the Comfort Cases which now are waiting for children in three cars in the showroom. We had hoped for 30 completed Cases at the onset of this project. As we head toward the finish line on August 31, it looks like there will be 150 Comfort Cases to send to deserving children throughout the state of Maine. I am blown away by their success and generosity. I had the pleasure and honor to meet all of the people involved today, and "thank you" just didn't seem like enough. It was clear and so heartwarming to know that everyone involved sincerely wanted to help by putting their hearts, their time, and their pocketbooks into this effort. Stanley Subaru has shown what is possible when a community comes together for deserving children, and Comfort Cases couldn't be more grateful.

Thank you!

Helping a mother out - Rich L

It had a really good vibe down there. Helping people out is a very heartwarming experience, and that's why I personally do what I do. People come into our Parts department asking for help with their vehicle needs and I can provide them with the professional guidance they are asking for. That translates to the Community Closet in many ways. Instead of parts needs, these people are finding much needed clothing and food help. They even have dishes, shoes and toy's for the kids! So lending a hand down there was very good feeling for me. I went down to the Community Closet knowing we were going to help move boxes and totes, what I didn't expect was the guest that Jackie had come in. Jackie's guest told her she knew a young mother going through a rough time and could not afford to by her child anything for his birthday. She went on to ask Jackie if she had anything (clothes, toys) to donate her for the boy's birthday, and I overheard this conversation. I thought to myself, If I were in this situation and needed help what would I do? I promptly interrupted and said get whatever you want and I'll pay for it. The woman was ecstatic! She went and grabbed some clothing for the boy and I went and picked out a couple toys for him. For me it was the least I could do and I thought anyone who heard that conversation would do the same thing I did to help this mother out in her time of need. After that I went back to moving clothing and doing the heavy lifting for the workers. We moved a mountain of donations for the store that day, filled the shelves with good's people could purchase. The store looked good. I learned how essential it is to have a store like the Community Closet to help our neighbors in need. There are so many people out there that don't have the means to live, and I just want to do my part to help anyone I can. That woman spoke up for the young mother and her son, imagine all the people that don't speak up. The long winters we have here in Maine and the cost of heating oil alone could mean choosing between being warm and filling your stomach. If I can make even a small difference for someone (the elderly, homeless, or in this case a young mother) I will help anyway I can. With life being so busy it's easy to forget that there are people out there that need our help, and if we take a step back to think about it, we all could do a little more to help our neighbors in need.

My time helping Community Closet - Jessica W

I had the opportunity to aid twice while Stanley Subaru volunteered time to the Community Closet. I have lived in the Ellsworth area for 10 years now, and I had no idea the grave need this area had for an amazing place like the Community Closet. Jackie Wycoff is open to all wants and needs and takes in anything and everything she can that will benefit another. I was impressed with her ability to move and organize the literal truck loads of material in such a way to have the product quickly and efficiently available for the folks coming. From the perspective of a volunteer, it was a more than eye opening experience. Jackie works with anyone that walks in her doors to assist. She is able to find the right job for each volunteer and seems to do so effortlessly and always with an upbeat attitude. I found myself, on day one, completely emptying the third unit that was donated to Jackie for the summer. It was stacked high with old shelving systems, tables, racks, boxes, bags, etc. and so on. For four hours my group worked non-stop to successfully empty the unit. This unit is now being used to help Jackie pay her heavy heating, lighting, and leasing bills as she will have furniture in this unit for sale. My second trip over was a completely different task and experience of moving and sorting through bags to gender sort and stack so they could be hung and size organized and ready to head over the store. Again, Jackie was amazing with finding our tasks and giving direction to best benefit the folks that come to see her. Although the work was hard and never stopped, at the end of each day, I felt as though I was achieved something really great. While volunteering at the Community Closet I can't count how many times I heard folks expressing thanks and gratefulness for the service being provided. It was a very rewarding experience.I know that I have a place to go to in the event that a tragedy strikes my family. A place with open arms and resources made readily available. Judgment free. EVERYONE is welcome. Jackie will be there with a smile on her face and ready to help in anyway possible. It's truly amazing what is happening at the Community Closet.

My time helping Community Closet

Volunteering at Community Closet - Addie G

Working with Jackie and the other volunteers at Community Closet was an eye opening, inspiring experience.Being a local to Ellsworth, I heard many times of the impact Community Closet was making in our community, but it's another thing to experience it first hand while volunteering there. The outreach Community Closet has to our town is immeasurable - from providing affordable clothing and housewares to people of all walks of life, to providing necessary supplies to those having just lost all belongings in a fire, to providing food and blankets to the homeless 24 hours a day, seven days a week - it's impossible to trace the trickle effect of that generosity throughout our community. I was amazed to learn that Community Closet can serve up to 200 people a day - some receiving items for free, and others leaving what they can to help support the store.Jackie refuses to turn anyone down, and I don't believe the word "no" is a part of her vocabulary - she will help anyone and everyone in any way she can. Jackie truly inspired me to do more to help others. She reminded me that a person in need is an opportunity to help. She reminded me that one person can truly change the trajectory of another life. It was an honor and a privilege to spend time volunteering at Community Closet, and I look forward to volunteering again.


Community Caring - Jacqueline W

I run a non-profit here in Ellsworth, Maine. We focus on making sure that all people have access to their necessities such as clothing and food. Subaru contacted me about coming into a volunteer. Their goal was the same as mine, to make a difference in our community. And that, they have. Every Monday and Wednesday through the month of April, at least 6 employees showed up (each day) to help me refill the store with clothing so that everyone had access to things to wear. They filled the outside food racks so that 24 hours a day, someone who is hungry would have access to food. They filled the blanket racks so that those who are living outside or without heat would have a way to stay warm. During the time they spent in our store they did all of the rearranging and heavy lifting, making it possible for us to expand our store to help more people. The owner of Subaru showed up and worked along with his staff. It’s easy to say that when he left our store, he didn’t stop thinking of us because each day he showed up with great ideas for moving forward. Ideas that would help us pay our $2000-a-month bill, ideas for being more productive, and for connecting with other area businesses. He went above and beyond because I truly believe he is someone who wants to make a difference which gave us a common goal. On the first day, he came to volunteer, he asked me what it was I needed most for him. I told him we needed a vehicle for transporting items in and out of the store and that it was a long term goal of ours. He reached out to other businessmen in the area and before a month had gone by, we had a vehicle which was perfect for what we needed. I never expected to have this goal met and am so very grateful to them for making it happen. During their time volunteering, a lady came to us. A single mom with an autistic child who had a birthday next week had grown out of all of his clothing. One of the Subaru employees heard her talking and went on a mission to find the boy some gifts for his birthday. He found him a ball and bat, a remote control car, and some other toys. And even though we offered the woman any clothes she needed for free, this gentleman insisted on paying for her items. She was so happy with his kindness and compassion. Many of the Subaru employees have returned on their own time or messaged me to say that they were inspired by volunteering and plan on returning, but the truth is the work that they accomplished in one day would have taken me a month alone. They made it possible for a small non-profit to make huge amounts of progress and because of them, on the days they came in, we were able to help 1800 people from our community and more. 1800 people who had access to the things they needed because a group of people cared enough to make a difference, stepped in when they were needed most and I for one am extremely grateful.

Turkeys to employees and Bar Harbor Food Pantry - Dawn C

Mark and I gave out over 750 pounds of turkey to employees today as a token of our thanks to them; they're the best! Several of our employees wanted to donate their turkeys to the Bar Harbor Food Pantry, which came and picked them up just in time to get them ready for Thanksgiving. We've worked with the food pantry for years, and it's always nice when we get to load them up! (And getting a turkey token of appreciation from a conscientious owner isn't bad either!)

Test Drives for the Cure - JoAnn B

Stanley Subaru...you are AMAZING! This is the tenth year of Test Drives for the Cure. For every test drive taken in October, Stanley Subaru donated $10 to Northern Light Maine Coast Hospital's cancer screening and treatment. Since the program started in 2009, Stanley Subaru has donated $17,500 to Northern Light Maine Coast's Breast Health Clinic and Mary Dow Center. This year, Stanley Subaru celebrated another great year with the staff by sharing pink-wrapped Hershey's Kisses. There was one Kiss for every dollar raised in 2018, which meant 20 pounds of chocolate to share among the screening, treatment, and front desk volunteer teams.

Helping the Mary Dow Center for Cancer Care - Kelley C

When Mark said he wanted to donate care kits (including 80 nice, soft blankets!) to the patients at the Mary Dow Center for Cancer Care, it was a surprise but not a shock. Mark and Stanley Subaru have been wonderful champions of Maine Coast Memorial Hospital. From years of Test Drives for the Cure to the Chefs' Gala to the Schoodic Scramble to unexpected donations like these, they do a lot to care for our patients and our team. It's great to have businesses like that supporting such a great mission. Thank you, Stanley Subaru!
