Community

In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.

In 2020, Subaru and its retailers made a donation to Feeding America to provide 50 million meals to help feed people in need during the COVID-19 crisis,* making meals available at 199 local food banks across the country.

*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks.

Community

Environment

Subaru and our retailers are committed to protecting and preserving the Earth, not just by our words, but also by our actions.

Since 2018, as part of the Subaru Loves the Earth initiative, Subaru and retailers across the country have partnered with TerraCycle® and have collected over 9 million pieces of hard-to-recycle trash from their communities. Items such as snack bag wrappers, coffee cups, or used cabin air filters from service areas have been diverted from landfills and given a second life by TerraCycle when it is converted into durable furniture and other usable items.

Environment

Health

Subaru believes we all should have a chance to lead a healthy life. That's why Subaru and its retailers, like us, partner with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society® (LLS) and their local hospital or cancer treatment center to give warm blankets and encouraging messages of hope, written by retailers and Subaru customers in their stores, to support patients facing cancer. Through our partnership with LLS, we've supported nearly 300,000 cancer patients nationwide. We're proud to be LLS's largest automotive donor.

Health

Education

Subaru and its retailers, like us, are continuing our support of education and high-needs schools in our communities through Subaru Loves Learning(R) by providing teachers across the country with funding to purchase the school supplies and resources they know are needed to help students thrive in the classroom. Through our partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org, Subaru and its retailers will have supported more than 470,000 students nationwide and are proud to be their largest corporate supporter.

Education

Pets

Subaru believes all pets deserve a loving home. That's why Subaru and its retailers, like us, host adoption events and donate $100 to our partner shelter for every pet adopted during the month of October*. Through our partnership with local and national organizations, we have donated over $51 million, which has supported the adoption, rescue, transport, and health of over 420,000 animals. We're proud to be the largest corporate donor to the ASPCA.

*Subaru retailers will donate $100 for every pet adopted from partner shelters from October 1, 2023 through October 31, 2023 up to $3,100 per retailer.

Pets

The Subaru Share the Love® Event

Subaru and its retailers believe in giving back to our communities. That's why for every new vehicle sold or leased during the Subaru Share the Love event, Subaru and its retailers, like us, makes a donation to national charities that our owners care about and to over 2,100 local charities where Subaru owners live and work.

Now, after 15 years, Subaru and our retailers have donated over $256 million to charity all to give back and to make the world a better place.

The Subaru Share the Love<sup>®</sup> Event

How is Schomp Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

The commitment Schomp Automotive has to its communities spans the decades the business has been in existence. Giving back continues to go hand-in-hand with our business’s success. The Schomp SPARK community initiative focuses on Education, Wellness, and Stewardship in our community. Stewardship - Schomp Automotive understands that people in our communities experience unforeseen challenges. We’re there to react and offer support in a myriad of ways. Whether it is responding to a natural disaster or making sure that our local little league team can afford new uniforms, we’ll be there to help. Health & Wellness - Healthy people make for healthy communities. We focus on children’s health and wellness. Our major effort in this area, extending over 29 years, is Schomp’s support for the Pediatric Burn Center at Children’s Hospital Colorado. We keep the words of our CEO, Aaron Wallace, in mind: “If we are going to give, let’s give to the weakest, the most helpless, the most injured, those most in need.” Education - We are passionate about children and education. Our charitable efforts in this area focus on vocational education, teaching life skills, and basic adult preparation. That’s why we support our local public education foundations, such as Arapahoe Community College, and have two annual award programs, Teacher of the Year and Coach of the Year, to recognize outstanding educators in our community.

A Dragon's Tail

On October 1st 2023, a scared little dog was handed over to Denver Animal Protection because the owners no longer wanted the 8lb scruffy ear dog. He was terrified in the shelter and hid in the back of his kennel which made him not an option for adoption. Denver Animal Shelter reached out to Paws on the Ground Colorado, a rescue who they transfer the non-adoptable dogs to in order to give them a better chance for adoption. Paws On The Ground Colorado had a foster pick up this poor little boy and instantly was in love with his sweetness. The foster immediately thought of a family who would be an excellent home for and reached out asking for their young daughter to give him a name in which she chose Mushu, after the dragon from Mulan. The foster knew exactly how Mushu would be adopted, so she invited the family to the Event at Schomp Subaru on October 29th, 2023 called Bark-a-Boo, an annual fundraiser which Lindsay Sandoval has headed up the last two years for Paws on the Ground Colorado. While all the volunteers worked to get the silent auction items together, Lindsay from Schomp Subaru helped organize all the advertisement, food, and timing logistics, along with accommodations to help raise funds for the foster animals in the foster care of Paws on the Ground. As the behind the scene work is coming together, the foster of Mushu has orchestrated the perfect costume, a set of dragon wings for Mushu and the foster to be a bigger dragon. Leading up to the event, the silent auction kicked off on line to enter a drawing for Avalanche Hockey Tickets, the entries were pretty slow coming in until Lindsay upped the PR for the event and the support started to pour in! October 29th had arrived and brought the first big snow which did not keep Schomp Subaru or Paws on the Ground from setting up the costume contest, grab bag, food, face painter, balloon artist, drink station and silent auction which included an autographed Peyton Manning Jersey. The event was a hit and brought in much needed funds for the senior dog in need of a dental, the dog who was needing a blood transfusion and to help pay the outstanding bill for the puppy mill bred poodles in dire condition. Without the significant contribution from Bark-A-Boo at Schomp Subaru and October being Subaru loves pets month, Paws on the Ground would not be able to continue serving the animals so desperately in need. Every year Paws On The Ground Colorado looks forward to October at Schomp Subaru in Aurora Colorado on Havana Street to hold our annual Bark-A-Boo!

Dress for Success Denver launches Butterfly Bus mobile program

Through a generous donation from Schomp Subaru, Dress for Success Denver (DFS Denver) launched the Butterfly Bus mobile transformation program. This 20-foot box truck donated by Schomp Subaru was retrofitted into a mobile boutique that will allow DFS Denver to expand programs across Colorado. On October 26th, the program debuted by partnering with the Wounded Warrior Project in Colorado Springs. 40 female Veterans received professional attire, interview prep, professional headshots and 'mini makeovers' provided by Ulta Salons. Rachelle Chapman, a proud military spouse and Director of The Adecco Group US Foundation & National Military Liaison partnered with DFS Denver to launch this mobile program and serve so many Veterans looking for work. Because of Schomp Subaru's donation, DFS Denver will be able to serve women living in pockets of poverty across the Denver Metro Area and Beyond.

Driving Change: Schomp Subaru and Beyond the Blackboard Unite to Empower Lansing Elementary

In a heartwarming collaboration for Subaru Loves Learning, Schomp Subaru teamed up with our friends at Beyond the Blackboard, a local business in Aurora, to make a significant difference in the lives of Lansing Community Elementary School's students and educators. This year's partnership wasn't just about donating school supplies; it was about igniting a spark for learning and creativity. When we looked at partnering with Subaru of America on this program, it’s something we’ve done many years before and have really enjoyed. This year, however, we had the opportunity to give in the form of gift cards—ten of them, to be precise. But we didn't want to stop at just ten teachers; we wanted to do more, to create a ripple of impact. So, in collaboration with the school's principal, we decided to double the number of teachers receiving gift cards to twenty. But the question remained: Why stop at gift cards when we could provide supplies that would truly make a difference? That's when inspiration struck - if we could impact one classroom positively, why not ten? And if ten, why not twenty? The answer was clear - we should adopt the entire school. With the unwavering support of Beyond the Blackboard, we embarked on a journey to furnish Lansing Elementary with an abundance of school supplies and educational kits. We worked hard with Beyond the Blackboard to assemble unique kits designed to make math exciting and engaging through games. These kits weren't just about textbooks and pencils; they were about sparking curiosity and unleashing the potential of young minds. Each classroom was given the tools they needed to inspire and educate the future generation. In addition to the kits provided by Beyond the Blackboard, we donated ten school supply kits provided by Subaru of America and Adopt a Classroom to further support the teachers at Lansing Elementary. In total, Schomp Subaru and Beyond the Blackboard proudly donated over $10,000 worth of supplies that will benefit the students and their dedicated teachers. As part of Subaru of America's Adopt a Classroom initiative, we also contributed $250 to 20 teachers at Lansing Elementary, further empowering them to make a difference in their classrooms. Lansing Community Elementary School is home to 307 remarkable students in grades P-5. Over 85% of them qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, and more than half are English Language Learners. The impact of our partnership reaches far beyond the school walls, touching the lives of these incredible children and educators. We are immensely proud to have collaborated with one of our cherished small businesses in Aurora, Beyond the Blackboard, to create a powerful and positive impact on our local community. This partnership isn't just about donating supplies; it's about nurturing a love for learning and empowering the leaders of tomorrow. Together, we've fueled education and left an indelible mark on Lansing Elementary. Watch the full video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaYTsGLTFrU

Schomp Subaru Supports Colorado Pet Pantry to Keep Pets in Loving Homes

Colorado Pet Pantry is so grateful for the opportunity to partner with Schomp Subaru this year. Thanks to Schomp Subaru, Colorado Pet Pantry was able to provide an additional 2,000 cats and dogs with a full 30-day supply of food this year -- WOW! Colorado Pet Pantry exists to keep family pets in their loving homes and out of the shelters by providing pet food assistance to those in need. Just $5 feeds a pet for a month, while shelters report that the cost to re-home an animal in 2023 is as much as $2,000. At Colorado Pet Pantry, we are dedicated to ensuring that no pet suffers due to lack of resources or care. This year marks a decade of service in Colorado, and our pet food assistance program has become a lifeline for countless pet owners. With shelters across the state nearing capacity and pet surrenders at an unprecedented high, our aim is to provide resources pet families need to keep pets in loving homes and out of the shelters. Thanks to Schomp Subaru and countless other generous sponsors who share our passion for animal welfare, we are able to continue this vital mission. If you’ve ever wondered how your financial contributions help, the heartfelt words of families whose pets have benefited from Colorado Pet Pantry services reveal your impact. When Tom R., a retired veteran started experiencing medical issues leaving him hospitalized and incapacitated, his first thoughts were with his service dog, Miss Rachel. Miss Rachael was rescued at three weeks old by Foothills Animal Shelter after her litter had been placed in a box and thrown into a greenbelt. Tom struggles with PTSD and Bipolar disorder and after he adopted her at eight weeks, together they spent three years in service dog training. Miss Rachael now provides constant physical, mental and emotional support to Tom every day. Tom expresses his thanks to Colorado Pet Pantry donors, grateful that our support alleviates some burden and knowing he has access to the resources he needs to keep and care for his vitally important and beloved pet. David from Trinidad shares, "My boys found their forever home with us years ago. Colorado Pet Pantry has been invaluable in providing a portion of their sustenance. Thank you for supporting rescued pets!" Testimonials like David's echo throughout our pet food banks across the state as families struggle to keep up with rising costs of food, utilities and housing. Community contributions have been nothing short of extraordinary in sustaining our efforts to keep family pets in forever homes across the state. With your help, over the past 10 years, we have: -Served 30 million meals to pets in need -Provided assistance to X pets and X families, ensuring they can feed, care for, and keep their beloved pets -Established over 100 pet food banks across Colorado -Extended our reach to more than 31 counties -Assisted 100+ animal welfare organizations, primarily animal rescues, with pet supplies and food -Responded to a wide range of urgent situations including natural disasters such as Marshall Fire and East Troublesome Fire, and by providing for people affected by domestic violence, homelessness, and medical emergencies. At Colorado Pet Pantry, we believe pets are family. That is why we’ve provided over 9 MILLION meals this year alone to support pet parents experiencing economic hardship. Demand continues to increase across all locations by as much as 50%, requiring more resources to source, store, transport and distribute food and supplies to those in need. Mariah in Bayfield expresses, "Colorado Pet Pantry has been a lifeline for our fur babies during our recent financial and family challenges. It's a blessing not to worry about dog and cat food this month, in addition to putting food on our own table. Thank you to all the donors who make this program possible!" Together, we can be the change that makes a world of difference for pet families experiencing hardship. Your generosity and kindness have not only transformed their lives, but improves the stability of communities across Colorado. Your compassion and dedication to our mission have already touched so many lives, and we are profoundly grateful for your investment in our cause. We look forward to continuing this journey with you and making an even greater impact in the year ahead. Thank you, Schomp Subaru!

Thankful for our partnership with Schomp Subaru!

We are immensely grateful for the incredible partnership we have forged with Schomp Subaru. Their unwavering commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship has had a profound impact on both our company and the world at large. Schomp Subaru's decision to offer customers the option to offset their carbon emissions by planting trees is nothing short of inspiring. By actively reducing their environmental footprint and investing in reforestation efforts, they have demonstrated their genuine concern for the Earth and its future. During the month of April, Schomp Subaru took their dedication a step further by planting an additional 15 trees for every car sold. This gesture of generosity not only celebrated Earth Day but also highlighted their commitment to making a tangible difference. The trees planted, as a result, have begun to create a ripple effect, restoring habitats, purifying the air, and contributing to the overall health of the planet. The impact of our partnership extends beyond the environment. Schomp Subaru's influence on their community is immeasurable. Their actions have not only created a cleaner and more beautiful environment but have also inspired others to follow suit.

Von's Vision & Schomp Subaru Gifting Sight to Children in Need

Von's Vision has been making a difference in Denver and the surrounding communities for 11 years and would not be successful if it was not for great supporters like Schomp Subaru. There are many kids in need who do not have appropriate access to eye care examinations and prescription glasses. Von's Vision, with the support of Schomp Subaru, has been able to provide over $5.2 million in eye exams and stylish prescription glasses to over 9,500 children. This shows Schomp Subaru's dedication to making a difference in the community and giving children the tools and confidence to succeed.

Schomp Subaru invests in youth financial literacy

At Youthentity, we believe steadfastly that in order to succeed as adults, young people need early introduction to building life skills that are foundational for future stability and happiness. Youthentity’s youth programs are built on a base of experiential learning and mentorship, and we are always in growth mode: our mission is to reach as many students as we can with our financial literacy education, career exploration opportunities, and life planning programs. Sustained growth, however, requires solid partnerships. When we met with Lindsey Sandoval at Schomp Subaru, it was immediately apparent that she and Schomp just “got it”. It was refreshing and heartening to connect with an organization so genuinely committed to advancing organizations making a difference in their communities. Beyond financial support, Lindsey and her team were ready to help make connections and introductions that would help Youthentity to better serve the Denver metro area with youth programs. With Schomp Subaru, we feel we have a true partner – and we are so grateful for their support.

The Butterfly Bus Takes Flight

By 2022, Metro Denver’s population is anticipated to increase to more than 3.3 million residents. There are some positive aspects to the anticipated growth related to community revitalization; however, Dress for Success Denver’s (DFS Denver) clients are mostly impacted by involuntary displacement or the negative impact of gentrification. By causing low income residents to relocate, gentrification in some neighborhoods is contributing to “pockets of poverty” in other neighborhoods - a key factor that impacts DFS Denver’s future planning. DFS Denver’s Executive Director, Amara Martin had a vision to create a mobile transformation as an extension of the DFS Denver programs. This ‘Dress for Success’ on wheels could travel across the Denver Metro Area as well as the entire State of Colorado. The vision was shared and became a key milestone in DFS Denver’s Strategic Plan. As Amara shared the vision with staff, supporters and the community; everyone was bought into the idea. But central to this vision was the need for a vehicle to create the mobile center. Bernadette McClair, DFS Denver Development Manager was enrolled in a Nonprofit Development course at a community college. This course required her to connect with a nonprofit and pursue donations. Once she heard about the mobile unit, she knew this was an ideal project and donations for her to pursue. A former client of DFS Michigan, Bernadette has first-hand knowledge of the empowerment and necessity of DFS Denver programs. She used her connects to the community and family to arrange a meeting with Schomp Subaru leadership in Denver. During the virtual meeting in May of 2022, Bernadette explained her project and the vision of DFS Denver. She asked Aaron Wallace, Dealer Principle for assistance with finding and purchasing a box truck that could be retrofit into a mobile transformation for DFS Denver. Aaron immediately said yes. The entire team of Schomp Subaru loved the idea and desired to partner with the creation of the new program. They embody the Subaru ‘Sharing the Love’ community. The team found a 20-foot box truck and donated $70,000 for the final purchase. Schomp Subaru continues their involvement as DFS Denver pursues community partners to retrofit the truck. Once complete, Schomp Subaru has also offered to host a ‘ribbon cutting’ grand opening of the truck. The ‘Butterfly Bus’ Transformation Center “bridges the gap” in our services by meeting women ‘where they are’ and providing necessary job search skills, professional development resources and professional attire. DFS Denver’s programs and services are increasingly offered on-site at referral agencies to reach clients who are hindered by transportation and/or geographical barriers. Today, the Butterfly Bus Transformation Center is in the process of being retrofit. The generosity of Schomp Subaru, allowed DFS Denver to make this vision is a possibility. It is because of their dedication to our community that we will launch the new program in March 2023.

Von Miller’s A Night to Take Flight Presented by Schomp Subaru

Von Miller’s A Night to Take Flight Presented by Schomp Subaru For the third year in a row, Schomp Subaru has served as Presenting Sponsor of Von Miller’s A Night to Take Flight, benefiting Von’s Vision. Despite Von Miller no longer playing for the Denver Broncos, Schomp Subaru continued its commitment to Von’s mission of providing low-income students with access to eyecare and fashion-forward prescription glasses. A Night to Take Flight was held at Jet Linx & Signature Aviation’s private jet hanger and featured over 200 guests mingling with Von and several Broncos players. The gala raised $325,000, which will go toward the foundation’s Denver-based programs, such as Von’s Vision Day, Von’s Vision Centers, and the new Rural Colorado outreach. This outreach includes the Von’s Vision Center sponsored by Schomp Subaru which was unveiled in 2020. Since last fall – when it was first placed in its new home of Laredo Boys & Girls Club in Aurora, CO – this Von’s Vision Center has provided approximately $12,500 in exams and screenings, $11,000 in prescription lenses and $18,000 in high-end frames to students in need in the greater Aurora community at no cost to the family. This impact would not be possible without the continued generous support of Schomp Subaru! To learn more about Von’s Vision, please visit www.vonmiller.org.

Thank you for your support of the APS Foundation, Schomp Subaru!

The APS Foundation is a nonprofit organization that provides supplemental funding and resources to support possibility becoming reality for every student within Aurora Public Schools.

Schomp Subaru rallies to support Mental Health

Project Helping is a mental health non-profit that focuses on making it ridiculously easy for people to volunteer. We believe that when you engage in your community and do good for others you start to feel good yourself which in turn improves your mental wellness. Schomp has been a dedicated supporter of Project Helping’s efforts to improve mental wellness over the last few years. As a non-profit, fundraising is a huge source of income for the organization, and, when the pandemic hit, fundraising and obtaining sponsorships became increasingly more difficult. We had to get creative with our efforts, but even when finding a solution to host a safe in-person event at a drive-in theater, there were still fewer sponsors than usual. When this was brought to Schomp’s attention, they immediately stepped up and dedicated their efforts to provide us with a sponsorship offer and showed up to our event with their Subaru fly signs and gift basket for the auction. This year we were able to welcome back in-person fundraising efforts and Schomp was there to support us throughout the entire process. As a mental health non-profit we have recognized a large gap in the time dedicated to youth mental health programming and we wanted to dedicate our fundraising efforts this year to this. Schomp recognized our efforts and graciously chose us to be the recipient of the Share The Love Event. A portion of the money we received will go directly to the development of a teen mental health app, which was created by teens for teens with our youth programming partner Ivy Sky. The remainder of the money will go to our Kynd Schools Program which works to put Kynd Kit Kiosks in local middle and high schools and give students access to important mental health resources. The support we have received from Schomp has been incredible and has truly made an impact on our organization.

Community Support

We at Gateway Domestic Violence Services, were so grateful when Subaru reached out to ask if they could partner with us for their monthly donation collection with their customers and employees. The heard about our work after chatting with the Aurora Police Department on what services was needed, the most assistance in the Aurora community and immediately contacted us to pitch in Schomp Subaru dropped of many essentials items like bedding and toiletries as well as $500 in gift cards that we can distribute to the recovering families that need assistance, we appreciate everyone who participated and contributed to our organization, with out individuals and organization such as Schomp employees and costumers we wouldn't be able to continue to do the work that we do, the gifts and contributions is extremely appreciated, and we look forward to partnering up with you all in the near future Thank you, Michelle :)

Thankful for all the support. Paws on the Ground

Paws on the Ground Colorado has been working with Schomp Subaru for several years to raise funds and awareness for our organization through community events held at their dealership, most notably, our fall festival Bark-A-Boo. We are so grateful to Schomp Subaru for hosting such a festive and meaningful fundraiser! From encouraging people to donate or bring needed supplies, to creating custom merchandise for sale, to fantastic Yeti prizes for the pet costume contest, Schomp Subaru thought of every little detail to make the event fun and memorable. Our mission at Paws on the Ground started as an advocacy group to reduce puppy mill commerce, which grew into a foster-based rescue to help animals from high kill shelters by taking in the unwanted, displaced, medically in need and abandoned. We help facilitate transport, rehabilitation, rehoming and medical services for these rescue animals, and adopt them into their loving forever homes. With Schomp Subaru’s support, we found families for eight of our dogs that were looking for homes directly from the event. Not only did Schomp Subaru help with a direct donation, but the awareness they brought with additional media exposure is also invaluable in helping our rescue pets find loving homes and positioning our organization in the community as a non-profit to continue to support. Our volunteers, shelter partners and the animals we love are immensely grateful.

Community Cares Kits & Aurora Warms the Night

Homelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic was labeled a “crisis within a crisis” by the media outlets nationwide, and people experiencing homelessness were projected to be in the highest category of people to contract and die from the virus. Local non-profit outreach efforts through street outreach and low-barrier shelters help navigate these individuals affected by homelessness to work toward stability. Distribution of hygiene kits during street outreach is one of the most effective ways in building rapport and trust with individuals on the street. "Aurora Warms the Night has been on the front lines of addressing homelessness for decades and the pandemic has created additional levels of concern throughout the region that we have never seen before. Addressing these exacerbated needs through willing partners like Schomp, provides us these much needed resources and relief for the needs of those experiencing homelessness.- Gabe Romero, Executive Director, Aurora Warms the Night.

The Beasts & Village Exchange Center

We really enjoyed the Athletic Alliance program with Schomp Subaru! What a great way to give more kids access to soccer. The kids were able to learn so much about the game, teamwork, and leadership. The importance of play is such a huge part of children’s development, and we are so thankful Schomp Subaru made this a priority for the kids at Village Exchange Center. This program is something the kids will remember forever and will continue to impact their ability to learn and grow as they become young adolescents. We look forward to working together again and following the "Beasts" this upcoming soccer season! -Curtis Gardner, Colorado Soccer Foundation

Schomp Subaru & Village Exchange Center

On behalf of Colorado International Soccer Academy (CISA), we are very proud to collaborate with Schomp Subaru Sports Alliance and Village Exchange Center to be part of this great opportunity to the Aurora and Denver youth by providing soccer technical skills development to The Beast soccer team. We had a fantastic time coaching these talented kids the fundamentals of soccer and sharing some insight into player experiences, team values, teamwork, individual soccer skills, and much more. We loved these kids' passion for the game. Supporting their dreams to become something meaningful in sports is very motivating. We enjoyed every practice session. So did our CISA club players who interacted and played scrimmages together with the team. Our communities need more programs with the primary focus of having fun while playing a sport. The festival was fantastic; kids had tons of fun interacting and learning from each other, we enjoyed the delicious treats, and made our soccer community more enjoyable. We highly encourage you to keep moving forward with this program, as it brings opportunities and learning experiences to our communities.- Nelson

The Beast Soccer Club, thanks Schomp

Our recent program with Schomp Subaru was a smashing success. For about a year we have been trying to launch a youth soccer club with our organization and Schomp Subaru comes in, helps us workshop a name and logo and kit color, find a coach and a venue for a starter match, and helped us acquire jerseys and needed gear. Such a creative, engaging and helpful group to work with. We look forward to an ongoing relationship with all involved - especially the wonderful team at Schomp!- Austin Lazek, Village Exchange Center

Subaru Loves the Earth

We were so thankful to have been part of the Subaru Loves the Earth initiative this year with Schomp Subaru. Through the initiative they partnered with three of our Aurora Mental Health Center facilities to build beautiful green spaces for the community we serve. One in five Americans will have a diagnosable mental health condition in any given year, and half of us will experience a mental health challenge at some time in our lives. For more than 40 years, we at Aurora Mental Health Center has used proven programs to help people achieve better mental health. We also provide education that enables people to maintain their emotional health regardless of the personal challenges they encounter in life. These green spaces, a collection of vertical Tower Gardens on site, aligned perfectly with our mission and initiatives to help people achieve better mental health. Our community now has a place that consistently has a beautiful collection of leafy greens and herbs that they can enjoy all year long. At our Stith Location, we are integrating the Tower Gardens into a program with our new community kitchen. Clients are being trained on the Tower Gardens, how to harvest and then incorporate into meals and dishes. The importance of green space and mental health go hand and hand; we are so thankful that Schomp Subaru recognized this and partnered with us to make it a reality. - Lori Banks, CEO

Family Tree and Schomp Subaru

Here at the Family Tree House of Hope, we're dedicated to providing safe shelter and supportive services for adults and children that are experiencing child abuse, domestic violence, and homelessness. We provide emergency residential services, case management and advocacy, therapeutic services, outreach support, housing search and placement, education and employment support, among many other services to the Arapahoe County community. We're so grateful to Schomp Subaru for hand-delivering over 200 large fleece blankets that we can distribute to our patrons to help keep them warm on those cold Colorado nights. These blankets mean so more than just small shelter from the elements. To these individuals, they can mean a feeling of security, a much-needed gesture of kindness, or even just a touch of normalcy that can make such a difference. Their team has gone the extra mile to share our cause with their employees and the community so that more people can be aware of these struggles and the dire needs of their neighbors and choose to volunteer or donate to help. We look forward to working with Schomp Subaru in the years to come. Thank you so much for all you do for our communities.

Thank you Schomp Subaru- from the APS Foundation

Schomp Subaru has been a wonderful sponsor and partner for the Aurora Public Schools Foundation for the past 3 years. This year, Schomp was the Valet sponsor to our 9th Annual Relentless Gala. The dealership provided a professional valet service for all of our guests. Additionally, their team went above and beyond, putting together over 500 gift bags with: snacks, water, and informational cards; to place in event guests’ cars. Such a kind and thoughtful gesture! We are so appreciative of Schomp Subaru’s partnership!

Schomp Subaru's Community Care Kits

We are so thankful for the Schomp Subaru Community Care Kits. The program was an incredible response to the current homeless crisis we are experiencing in our city. To build an impactful program in the community, Schomp Subaru collaborated with us and multiple non-profits focused on providing resources for those experiencing homelessness to understand their needs and what would help support our outreach efforts. Here at the St. Francis Center we provide shelter as well as services that enable people to meet their basic needs for daily survival and to transition out of homelessness. “People experiencing homelessness face a daily struggle to survive each day. Through street outreach our team knows how small gestures of kindness can offer much needed hope in the moment. We are grateful for Schomp Automotive’s commitment to care for our unsheltered community members.” Jim Boberschmidt, Director of Outreach, St. Francis Center of Denver. The Schomp Subaru Community Kits included the following items; Water-Resistant Fanny Pack, Crew Socks, Sunscreen, Lip Balm, Anti-Bacterial Wipes, Shampoo, Conditioner, Deodorant, Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Hair Comb, and Lotion. Street Outreach is basically the craft of community connection that requires rapport-building and trust. The Schomp Subaru Community Cares Kits worked well because I could connect quickly with people, in the moment, and that is key. In addition, the Schomp Subaru Community Cares Kits were so nicely packaged that they were kind of a gift, a treat. This makes rapport-building easier. I didn’t have to fumble around with my outreach gear, in a situation that can already be awkward enough—for all concerned. I was able to simply hand something of value, that was functional and neatly packaged—and folks were truly grateful. Thank you so much to Schomp Subaru for the thoughtful and well-designed community support. The Schomp Subaru Community Cares Kits helped make the connection! - Greyden Charlesworth, St. Francis Center Community Outreach Coordinator.

Cares Kit Program

I am a local social worker and co-responder in Arapahoe county. I reached out to multiple agencies in an attempt to find care kits for our local homeless population. Upon reaching out, Nikki with Schomp Subaru, responded immediately. Schomp Subaru provided me with 50+ care kits within 3 days. The kits included items such as socks, toiletries, and other sanitary items. We are so thankful for the charitable support and prompt follow up from Nikki with Schomp Subaru and would highly recommend working with them in the future.

Supporting Students in Aurora

Immediately upon opening their location in Aurora, Schomp Subaru has been focused on partnering with and supporting the local community. Their investment into Aurora Public Schools students through the 2020 Share the Love event helped catalyst a review and refresh of all financial literacy curriculum for K-12 students. The fact that our students will learn how to balance a budget, understand investment markets and other critical financial skills is a tribute to Schomp Subaru. I cannot say thank you enough for your support of our students and community!

Financial Literacy for Aurora Public School.

The over $30,000 Schomp Suburu generously donated to Aurora Public Schools will go far in impacting the life skills of thousands of APS students in an area that is growing more and more national and state attention - Financial Literacy. Thank you, Schomp, for supporting our students!

Schomp Subaru provides to local college

Schomp Subaru utilized proceeds from Subaru share the love to provide a unique gift to the Arapahoe Community College (ACC) Sturm Collaboration Campus. Schomp will provide around $250,000 over the next 5 years to support innovative programs and student scholarships as the region comes back from the devastating COVID-19 pandemic. Schomp and ACC has had a long-standing partnership with our Auto-tech program, but through our expanded partnership, ACC is poised to provide a talent pipeline to all areas of Schomp Subaru including HR, Sales, Finance, IT, and of course Automotive Techs. Schomp's investment will help countless students through their educational journey as they enter the workforce. Schomp's forward thinking vision matches well with the ACC Sturm Collaboration Campus vision of working alongside the entire talent ecosystem including k-12, community college, universities, workforce centers, and industry. The Sturm Collaboration Campus co-locates these entities to create a more efficient and effective talent pipeline system for both students and industry. Schomp's commitment to their community is second to none, and they demonstrate this through their quality service, outstanding workplace reputation, and of course their commitment to give back and invest in community driven initiatives that will make a tenfold difference in the lives of community members.

Dedicated to their Community

Working with Schomp Subaru was an absolute pleasure. In the winter of 2020 the APS Foundation was a Hometown Charity Partner. We decided the funds raised would go to Personal Financial Literacy for Aurora Public Schools Students. In Aurora Public Schools, many students are first-generation students and financial education is not something their families have. Being able to teach students from a young age how to properly use items like a credit and debit card, what is good debt, how to invest funds. All of these items our students need to be successful in their professional life. Schomp Subaru is truly changing the lives of our students, and their families. We are incredibly grateful.

Schomp Subaru Helps At-Risk Children and Families

Founded in 2008, WeeCycle strives to improve the health and well-being of at-risk Colorado infants and toddlers. We collect, “weecycle” and match essential baby gear – including diapers, baby food and formula – both directly to families in need and through our network of community partner organizations serving individuals experiencing poverty, homelessness, domestic violence, teen pregnancy and under-employment, as well as those serving immigrants and refugees. By “weecycling” baby gear, we help keep children clean and safe and contribute to a healthier environment for their future. While 2020 has been a trying year for all of us, it's been especially difficult for the most vulnerable families that WeeCycle serves. Aside from the stress of the pandemic, these families are faced with not knowing where their next meal is coming from or how they'll pay the rent. Though we were forced to cancel most of our fundraising events due to Covid-19, we were fortunate enough to be able to host our annual Birdies for Babies Golf Tournament in September 2020. Schomp Subaru has a strong history of supporting the communities in which they operate and we were thrilled to receive their support for this event, which raised over $50,000 to help distribute essential items such as diapers, wipes and baby food and formula to vulnerable populations throughout Denver and beyond. We cannot thank Schomp Subaru enough for their support and generosity, and look forward to a continued partnership with Schomp to help make our community a better place for all of us.

Von's Vision Center

My name is Austin Alley and I am the Director of Operations with Von's Vision, the personal foundation of Denver Bronco Von Miller. The mission of Von's Vision is to provide low-income students with access to the eyecare and corrective eyewear they need to be their best in the classroom and in life. Earlier this year, we began a major partnership with Schomp Subaru to launch our latest Von's Vision Center. This Vision Center is a mobile kiosk installed at local Boys & Girls Clubs that house all of the frames, accessories and optometry equipment needed to provide no-cost vision screenings and prescription glasses to in-need students. While we have yet to officially "launch" this program to the public (COVID restrictions at the Boys & Girls Clubs have prevented us from working directly with the kids for the time being), this Vision Center with Schomp Subaru with provide hundreds of students with access to no-cost optometry care and much-needed glasses. Across the entire district, Denver Public Schools has more than 27,000 low-income students who need some level of vision correction. The impact that Schomp Subaru's Von's Vision Center will create will be lifechanging for a number of these low-income students. By being able to see well, the entire trajectory of a student’s life will change. They will perform better in the classroom, focus more outside of the classroom, and ultimately pursue their dreams. This Von's Vision Center will be staffed with local volunteer doctors once a month to perform regular no-cost eye exams to the students at the Boys & Girls Club in Aurora, CO.

Schomp Subaru rallies to support Mental Health

Project Helping is a Denver non-profit that aims to improve mental health in the community around them. As a non-profit, fundraising is obviously a huge source of income for the organization, and as COVID swept the nation, their annual fundraising event was not looking good. Project Helping was able to put together a new idea for a SAFE fundraising event- holding it at a drive-in theater. This came with a rescheduling in date and time, and far less sponsors than usual. A few days before the event, we spoke with Carla from Schomp automotive about tickets to event. She and James immediately got together and within a few hours we had a sponsorship offer from them. While this may not seem like a huge deal- it absolutely was. We were struggling and they were immediately there to help out. Even with short notice, they showed up to our event with their Subaru fly signs and gift basket for the auction. We cannot thank Schomp, Carla, and James enough for their continued support of our mental health programming and fundraisers.

Schomp Subaru boosts kids' creativity in Aurora!

Many thanks to Schomp Subaru for hosting their Art 2C Gala on November 14th to benefit students at Downtown Aurora Visual Arts (DAVA). DAVA is a community art center that provides free after-school art programs for kids of all ages in northern Aurora. Because we are a non-profit that serves hundreds of students, we are in constant need of art supplies to keep kids creating!

Ryan's Make a Wish

My son Ryan who has a muscle disease, reached out to Make A Wish and explained to them how important his car is to him and how he would love to have his car restored. Make A Wish reached out to Schomp Subaru and with their help made Ryan's wish come true. Schomp Subaru went above and beyond all of our expectations. The team at Schomp Subaru completely disassembled Ryan's car, corrected all the hail dents, installed new fenders and repainted Ryan's car. They did new weather stripping around the doors, new heads and resealed the engine. Went through the brake system to make it safe and reliable. When it came to the interior, they installed the seats that Ryan had dreamed of along with new carpet, back seat and stereo system. Rims and tires were also added to bring it all together. Schomp Subaru made Ryan's wish come true. They worked as a team from the body shop and engine shop. The Front office was exceptional at making sure they did all they could to make Ryan's wish a memorable experience. I can't say enough about our experience with Schomp Subaru. They were outstanding with their workmanship, professionalism and everyone working together. Just want to give everyone at Schomp another thank you!!!

Schomp Subaru Helps Family of Fallen Firefighter

The powerful image was broadcast around the world -- the body of my friend, 31-year old South Metro Fire Rescue (SMFR) firefighter/paramedic, Cody Mooney, being wheeled down the hallways of Littleton Adventist Hospital to perform his final “rescue”, escorted by an honor guard, medical personnel, and his heartbroken wife, Emily, who was due to deliver their fifth child. One by one, fellow firefighters, family, friends and hospital personnel raised their hands to salute as Cody’s bed approached on its way to the organ donation facility. “Saving lives even after his last breath … after losing his courageous fight against an aggressive brain tumor,” a spokesman for South Metro wrote in tribute. Cody’s battle began in June of 2017, when doctors discovered a tumor growing on his brain stem. He decided against surgery, since it wasn’t affecting his quality of life or ability to work. This past February, the tumor had doubled in size and needed to be removed. His operation was a success but unfortunately, he experienced complications and his health quickly deteriorated. Cody passed away on Saturday evening, March 19, 2019. My name is Matt Talafuse. I’m an SMFR firefighter and board member of the nonprofit South Metro Professional Firefighters Foundation. Our mission is to provide assistance to local first responders and their families in times of tragedy and crisis. I was aware that as the sole provider for his family, Cody had faced mounting medical bills and couldn’t keep up with car repairs. When I learned that Emily was forced to place her toddler in a car seat through a back window, I immediately contacted the PR director of Schomp Automotive to see if they could provide her with reliable transportation – maybe a short-term lease or certified used car. My wife and I have bought four vehicles from the dealership, and both Cody and I had participated in Schomp’s annual Fire Muster, so I’m well aware of the Schomp Automotive family’s commitment to our community. Schomp’s management team responded quickly with much better news than I had hoped for. With owner Aaron Wallace’s blessing, they unanimously decided to give Emily a spacious new 2019 Subaru Ascent SUV to accommodate her large family.They later learned that Cody worked at Station 18 -- just five minutes from their corporate headquarters in Highlands Ranch!Cody had married his childhood sweetheart and fulfilled his childhood dream of being a firefighter. At Cody’s service, his dad, Kevin Mooney, said his son had also dreamed of moving from his hometown of Tarzana, California because "Cody loved the outdoors and loved Colorado.” So much so that he moved his family to the rustic mountain community of Divide (population 127) at the base of Pikes Peak. He loved camping, fishing, hunting, and exploring nature with his kids and was willing to make the 85-mile commute to Highlands Ranch. Mooney family spokesperson, Justin Perlman, was one of Cody's closest friends. They went through fire academy together, and were once neighbors and members of Littleton Fire Rescue. Justin was with Emily on Thursday, May 23rd, when she was handed the keys to her beautiful new Subaru Ascent. It was perfect timing, since the lease on their home in Divide was ending, and Emily was taking a road trip to visit family in California to plan her next move. In what some might consider Divine Intervention, Emily revealed that her brother would be joining her in his Ascent which Cody had driven and “absolutely loved”. Cody leaves behind Willow, Barrett, Weston, Georgia and infant daughter Cody, named in honor of her brave father. He’d be so pleased to know that Emily intends to take their kids camping in her reliable, rugged, brand-new vehicle thanks to Schomp Subaru.

Subaru & LLS Love to Care!

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and Schomp Subaru delivered tote bags, blankets and arts & crafts kits to children and their siblings at Children’s Hospital Colorado on July 22nd. Schomp has a long-standing relationship with Children’s and were excited to add this to their long list of community outreach with Children’s. The Subaru and LLS staff delivered the blankets to the patients in their rooms. One child was so excited he gasped when he saw the arts & crafts kit. We were honored that we could hopefully take their mind off their hospital stay for a little while. A big thanks to Schomp Subaru for their partnership and their Loves to Care program!

Schomp Loves Access to Knowledge for All

We know that learning matters to Schomp Subaru and our partnership reinforces that they know how to Share the Love in a big way in our community. The Denver Public Library’s mission to provide “Free and equal access to all” embraces this shared commitment to increasing access to knowledge for everyone. Whether decked out in black tie or banned book attire (we saw you, Harry Potter, A Clockwork Orange, 1984, The Scarlet Letter and The Hunger Games fans...among others), nearly 650 guests filled the Central Library this fall in support of the Denver Public Library Friends Foundation’s 2018 Booklovers Ball: Banned for an evening of celebration in the stacks after hours. This annual gala was a great way to introduce the partnership with Schomp Automotive Group and Schomp Subaru while emphasizing the commitment to learning for all. From the moment guests walked the Schomp Automotive red carpet, the evening was filled with energy, glamour, delicious food, libations and more. Spirits were high as we closed out the evening on the dance floor, enjoying the library’s Music and Media area in a spectacular fashion. Guests departed with branded goody bags filled with Share the Love information, highlighting the tradition of community engagement beyond this fun event. We are inspired by the dedication of our corporate partners that make a difference in the lives of our 4 million customers each and every day. • Provide access to a lifetime of learning, free of charge. Libraries are the most inclusive public institutions in our country, serving people of all ages and origins in every neighborhood. This includes programs that provide resources for job-seekers and help recent immigrants learn English. • Raise a new generation of readers. With a commitment to early childhood literacy, strong community partnerships will help every child learn to love books and reading, preparing them to be successful in school and life. • Create community. The library provides meeting spaces for community groups and serves as a welcoming place for civic gathering. • Provide programs and services that inform and inspire. With over 20,000 free programs and services annually, the library has something for everyone. Our team of expert library staff develops high-quality programming to meet the requests and needs of the community, offering resources for learners of every age and demographic. • Preserve Denver's history and culture. Partnerships like ours allow the library to provide unique access to precious historical documents that trace our region's growth. Together, the Denver Public Library Friends Foundation and our friends at Schomp Subaru are making a difference to ensure all community members have the access to information, resources, and programs to make our communities a better place.

Schomp Shows Its Love for the Arts

Schomp Subaru Shared Its Love for Aurora’s Sculptures and Student Arts Programs earlier this month. Sculpture met Subaru November 1st when Schomp Subaru teamed up with the On Havana business improvement district for the “Art 2C on Havana,” gala, celebrating the placement of 13 new sculptures along a 4.3-mile stretch of the busy thoroughfare from Sixth Avenue to Dartmouth. It was a great way to introduce the Schomp Automotive Group, which purchased Schomp and two other dealerships along Havana earlier this year, to the community. Schomp provided the gathering space and a sumptuous array of tapas and beverages for guests including city officials and Havana stakeholders. It also was an opportunity to showcase Schomp Automotive’s tradition of community engagement and giving back, an affirmation as well of Subaru’s “Love Promise.” Art2C gala attendees were asked to contribute art supplies for Downtown Aurora Visual Arts (DAVA), a community-based experiential learning program for children and teens who don’t normally have access to arts programming. Guests were invited to write words of encouragement and interest for the kids who participate in DAVA programs. “It was an engaging piece of ‘Sharing the Love,’ (Subaru’s signature slogan), said On Havana Executive Director-in-Training Chance Horiuchi. “Guests enjoyed it because it comes from the heart.” “We were thrilled when Schomp Subaru contacted us about the gala, and to be chosen as a recipient of art supplies,” said Susan Jenson, DAVA’s executive director. Guests donated paint, brushes and cotton canvas, “the most expensive supplies that we use at DAVA.” “It was so exciting to work with the people from Schomp Automotive,” said Horiuchi. “We haven’t met too many companies with such intentional community support. We haven’t had that relationship with a dealership. When they asked what nonprofit engages students in the arts, the first that came to mind was DAVA, which has won countless awards with its high-quality afterschool programs and workforce training.” The Art2C On Havana program is a partnership between the BID and Aurora’s Art in Public Places program. This is the eighth year for the sculpture competition. The BID puts out a call for submissions to artists every spring. Thirteen sculptures are chosen in a competitive, juried process. The 13 sculptures from the previous year are taken down and replaced with the new works of art, placed in prominent locations along Havana. “The exhibit gives residents and visitors a unique way to experience the District,” Horiuchi said. The top three winners are announced at the November gala. This year’s winners honored at the Schomp Subaru party included: First place – Dale Montagne of Silverthorne for “Time and Space,” located near the Havana Tower near Havana and Florida Ave. Second place – Victoria Patti of Arvada for “La Catrina,” located near Havana and Jewell Ave. Third place – John Wilbar of Pueblo for “Lyric,” located on Main Street at The Gardens on Havana. DAVA was founded 25 years ago on Colfax Ave. in the old downtown area of Aurora. The organization has 8,300 square feet of arts and studio space. Children from pre-kindergarten through high school participate every weekday year-round in both arts and computer programs “We have remarkable results working with a really diverse population that includes 60% Latino, 12 to 15 percent African and African-American kids as well as Asian and white children. There’s an equal emphasis on excellence in the arts and positive youth development,” Jenson explained. “We complement and supplement what the public schools do in the afterschool hours.” “Schomp Automotive has proudly supported education programs for many years. It helps us engage with the community in a very real way,” said Dealer Principal Aaron Wallace. “We were honored we could host this event. It was a great opportunity to introduce ourselves to our fellow business owners along Havana and also provide support for a community superstar like DAVA.”
