YMCA receives funds for youth transportation - Shelly M

The Cumberland YMCA was so grateful to be awarded the funds from the Subaru Share the Love Event this past spring. The YMCA offers a mentoring program for youth ages 11-14 years old which helps youth learn the consequences of good and bad choices as well as career exploration, resume writing and even making their own business cards. Students also have the opportunity to hear from a guest speaker who is from our community and now plays football in the NFL and also completed this same curriculum when he was in middle school. Students are able to learn and ask questions about the person and what it took for them to become successful in the career field they chose. The program is given by trained facilitators and transportation and food are provided. Students also receive designated time for guided recreational activities at each session. Since we live in a rural area, these funds helped us provide the needed transportation for these students. Each student graduates upon completion of the program and they are awarded their personalized portfolio from the class as well as an incentive of recreation equipment of their choice. We are anticipating 80 students will graduate from the program this summer. Current graduates will have the opportunity to return as junior counselors to assist this summer. The Y is so appreciative of the donation from the Thomas Automotive Group that allows us to transport these students to and from the program. Without this service, many students who live in these rural areas, would simply not be able to attend the program. Thank you Thomas Automotive Group for partnering with the YMCA in building and investing in healthy communities!

Share the Love 2019 - Cathy G

Thomas Cumberland Subaru and Subaru of America, Inc. through the Share the Love Event cared enough and reached out to help children. Thomas Cumberland Subaru and The Children’s League joined in working together to make a difference in the lives of children. The proceeds from the Subaru Share the Love Event gave tremendous financial support to The League and their mission of caring for and serving children with a focus on special needs. Being passionate about children and compassionate about their care is what The Children’s League is all about. Through the Share the Love Event Thomas Cumberland Subaru mirrored that same compassion and love for children. Their support helped The Children’s League in caring for over 500 children in 2019. Children with an orthopedic, cerebral palsy, cleft lip/palate, speech-language disorder or physical therapy need are served and cared for at The League. Seeing that happen each and every day makes caring for children so very special, but being able to make that happen each and every day makes The Children’s League who we are today. Because of the financial support from Thomas Cumberland Subaru and the Share the Love Event, The League was able to continue what they love to do and that is caring for and serving children. Thank you Thomas Cumberland Subaru for reaching out, for caring, and for supporting The Children’s League.
