Rescuing Rosie - Linda A

The Animal Rescue Foundation, (ARF) in Beacon, NY is very thankful that Mid-Hudson Subaru has supported our animal shelter and rescue program this October by donating towards adoptions of cats and dogs in need of forever homes. Rosie, a Pocket Pitbull mix, is one of those dogs recently adopted. Rosie, who is approximately 5 years old, was dumped in the middle of a New York heatwave in August 2022. It’s unknown how long she was out there to fend for herself, or how many people passed her by due to her appearance and breed. She was sunburned, dehydrated, limping badly, and covered in ticks when a young woman saw her, gave her food and water, and brought her to the Animal Rescue Foundation. It was obvious to shelter volunteers that she had probably been used as a breeder, and the ER Veterinarian confirmed that she had given birth to her last litter just 8-10 weeks earlier. Rosie spent several days in the hospital and despite how poorly she must have been feeling, she was friendly to everyone she met. She stayed with one of ARF’s volunteers for almost two months while healing both physically and emotionally and is one of the most loving dogs you could ever meet. Rosie is a true underdog with a huge heart. When I met Rosie, I knew immediately that she would be a perfect addition to my family. I am so happy that I was able to adopt her, and she will spend the rest of her days safe and loved. And she now has a bulldog sibling, and lots of cuddly blankets to snuggle with! Thank you Mid-Hudson Subaru for partnering with the Animal Rescue Foundation to help homeless pets. Your support truly makes a difference, especially to smaller, 100% volunteer, no-kill rescues like ARF, who depend solely on community support to continue their efforts to rescue pets in need of just the right forever homes. Please continue your commitment to our community. Your partnership with ARF really does demonstrate the idea that Subaru Loves Pets! Joe S.,

Excellent customer service that goes above and beyond - Gay F

On July 20, 2019 my Dad and I came to Mid-Hudson Subaru, and I lease a Subaru Impreza . When my car arrived from having to wait seven weeks, I came to take the car. I was so excited. I really enjoy and love my new Subaru Impreza. The lease will end July 20 2022, so I decided I want to finance the Impreza I currently have. I applied online with the bank but I did not get approved. I called Mid-Hudson Subaru and I spoke with Bill Brinckerhoff, I was upset and crying because my dad is very sick and he had a stroke on both sides of his brain. He is in the hospital and he cannot talk or move. I was worried how I will be able to finance the car, Mr. Brinckerhoff was patient and assured me everything will work out. Mr. Brinckerhoff was willing to help me to get the car financed. Mr. Brinckerhoff is genuinely friendly and caring. He said, "I hope your dad will get better. I will keep him in prayer." I felt this was so nice of Mr. Brinckerhoff. Mr. Brinckerhoff asked another employee, Erik Slotnick to assist me to finance the car. I got a call from Mr. Brinckerhoff and he told me everything has been approved. I told Mr. Brinckerhoff, “Thank you, I appreciate everything you and Mr. Slotnick did to help me get the car financed." Mr. Brinckerhoff's compassion show he likes to help people and he provided excellent customer service that goes above and beyond. Mr. Brinckerhoff is truly an asset to this company. We need more people like Mr. Binckerhoff which will make the world a better place. Mr. Brinckerhoff made my customer experience exceptional and made such a great impression that I genuinely will remember forever. Also, Mr. Slotnick is patient and understanding. He said if I have any questions, I can reach out to him. He also helped to make sure I got the car. I say "Thank you Mr. Slotnick. You are truly an asset to this company. Mr. Slotnik I am grateful for all you have done for me." Mr. Brinckerhoff and Mr. Slotnick I wish both of you many good blessings in your life. Sincerely, Gay Flood

Spreading Warmth to Patients - Daniela V

We have partnered with Mid-Hudson Subaru to spread the hope, love and warmth to patents at Montefiore Nyack. We were able to donate 80 beautiful blankets to the hospital to spread to their patients. Patients are in the infusion center for hours at a time and these blankets keep them warm as they are going through treatments. The staff at the hospital were very appreciative to be chosen for the blanket donation. Thank you Mid-Hudson Subaru!!

Hope for Youth - Jim W

My name is Jim Witt. Some people might know of me because I taught for many years at Lakeland High School in Shrub Oak, N.Y. There I taught science and started a weather club that became internationally famous. Students from the Lakeland Weather Club are now working for the National Weather Service and are changing the way weather is forecast. Others may know of me because of my association with 100.7 WHUD-FM radio. My tenure as a meteorologist on WHUD will reach 50 consecutive years this coming February 2022. Still others may know of me for my connection to the HOPE for Youth Foundation. I founded HOPE in 1986. This organization raises money primarily by selling the HOPE for Youth Foundation long-range weather calendar. With this money we currently assist thousands of children each year by donating money to 38 organizations in the Hudson Valley who help children who are mentally or physically challenged. In addition, HOPE provides scholarships to seven deserving graduating high school seniors who have “given back to their school and community”. I have purchased my automobiles from Mid-Hudson Subaru for over 15 years. Why? Because they care! They have “cared” for as long as I have been associated with them. This year I met Terrence McGouran. I told him what HOPE for Youth Foundation is all about. There was absolutely no hesitation. He just asked how he and Subaru could help. I told him about the calendars and he immediately figured out how many calendars he could distribute “free of charge” to his clients and then ordered a large number of calendars to help us help children. Terrence is genuine and his staff has caught “the fever”. Stop in, pick up a calendar and meet his friendly staff. They will do whatever they can to insure you will become an exceptionally satisfied customer. MID HUDSON SUBARU HELPS US HELP CHILDREN IN THE HUDSON VALLEY.

Saving Homeless Pets: Dolly's Story - Charlotte B

The Animal Recue Foundation, (ARF) in Beacon, NY was very excited to have Mid-Hudson Subaru support our animal shelter and rescue program this Fall with donations towards adoptions of cats and dogs in need of forever homes. Their sponsorship of our shelter really does support the idea that Subaru Loves Pets! Dolly's Story: Dolly is a friendly 3-month old puppy who loves everyone she meets. She was taken from a small cage when Animal Control went into a house to rescue 30 snakes. When they saw Dolly, who was very young, the owner was asked if he would surrender her as well. Thankfully, he agreed as Animal Control suspected that Dolly was to be snake food. So Dolly got her first chance. She was transferred to a shelter where she stayed until well. Thankfully, this shelter works with the Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF) in Beacon, NY, to transport animals from situations of overcrowding or lack of adoption interest. Dolly arrived at ARF when she was just 10 weeks old. ARF vaccinated/spayed her and advertised her along with Subaru’s pledge to help the Underdogs. And so Dolly received her second chance at finding a home. When I read the news on social media that Subaru was sponsoring ARF during October, and saw her face, I knew I had to act. With the help of Subaru, I could contribute to ARF through Subaru’s sponsorship, and adopt her. Dolly’s third chance. Maybe it’s true what they say about the third time being the charm. She is very much loved. I hope she lives a long happy life and I will do whatever I can to make that happen. Thank You Subaru. Please continue your sponsorship of local shelters. I know it is appreciated. T.C. - Wappingers Falls, NY

Mid Hudson Subaru shares the love and the warmth! - Chuck B

My name is Chuck Benfer and I am the Market President for IHeart Media in the Hudson Valley, NY market. For many years we have launched into the Christmas Season with Mid Hudson Subaru. We have coordinated our change to Christmas music programming with a big kickoff in the parking lot of Mid Hudson Subaru. We feature live performances with local school bands, choruses and professional performers. At 5:00PM sharp we flip the switch to Christmas, Mid Hudson Subaru lights up in Christmas lights, Q92.1 becomes Christmas 92.1 and Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive to meet the families and take pictures with the kids. It is a great celebration. It also is the kick off to our annual coat drive. Mid Hudson Subaru is command central for coat collection, distribution and pick up. We partner with Catholic Charities of the Hudson Valley and local Rotary groups to make sure the coats get out to the needy in our community in a timely fashion. I have found Mid Hudson Subaru to be a generous and engaged partner in the coat drive. Their staff is engaged and eagerly great donors. This year we collected over 3,000 coats plus a remarkable number of hats and gloves. The generosity of the community is overwhelming but the partnership with Mid Hudson Subaru makes this possible. I am grateful for the leadership and the team at Mid Hudson Subaru. Without them, their cooperation and their dedication there would be a lot more people struggling to stay warm in the Hudson Valley. Thank you!
