Resurrection Christian School in Loveland, Colorado depends on the generosity of the local community to deliver on its mission- to raise up students who are Boldly Christian, Academically Equipped, and Globally Prepared to make a positive impact on their local community, country, and the world. Subaru of Loveland's generosity has been seen across our campus, through gifts to our youth basketball camp, sports programs for kids of all ages, and our annual golf tournament that supports our athletics programs at the middle and high school level.

Here is a story from the Colorado Eagles - Gavin R

The Colorado Eagles and Subaru of Loveland have worked together for the past five years on the team's marquee fundraiser, The Pot of Gold. Annually, a Northern Colorado child with financial hardship created through medical issues is selected as a recipient of the St. Patrick’s Day themed, “Pot of Gold” game. Donations are collected from fans in attendance and game worn jerseys are auctioned to raise money for the beneficiary. In addition, the Eagles and Subaru of Loveland have partnered on the nightly chuck-a-puck promotion and asked fans to toss the foam pucks into the sunroof of a new Subaru vehicle where each puck generates a $100 donation to the family. This, coupled with the percentage of sales the month prior to the game from new vehicles sold, has contributed $7,500 annually to the recipient family. The Subaru of Loveland family by their generous financial contributions, marketing and involvement of personally sharing the story of these families in need have taken this community fundraising program to a whole new level.

Atticus' Story - Atticus H

Atticus joined the Therapy Services (hippotherapy) program at Hearts & Horses in April 2016 at the age of 9. Initially, he struggled with coordination, concentration, self-help skills, and communication due to his diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. Over time his communication skills, balance and coordination improved to the point where he was able to 'graduate' from Therapy Services to our Interactive Vaulting Program. He now greets people appropriately, displays empathy for animals and is making new friends! Always willing to accept a new challenge, Atticus has even created some of his very own gymnastics routines to perform on his horse. Attached is a photo of Atticus on Zulu, our tallest horse at 17 hands! Thanks again for all you do to support Hearts & Horses! With gratitude, Jan

Blue Star Fund - Allis G

With the support of Subaru of Loveland the McKee Wellness Foundation distributed $72,000 and acquired two matching grants to support just under $100,000 in veterans support programs in 2020. When 2020 took a turn in March everyone was left scrambling to find new support avenues and the Blue Star fund was able to step in for veterans across Northern Colorado. The emergency support grants through our partners at Front Range Community College and Larimer County Veterans Services help to bridge the gaps for veterans needing to pay rent, purchase laptops for school, fix devastating water damage, and navigate unexpected family changes. Having people and funds available to step in and say "we've got you!" - truly saved lives. Asking for help is a humbling experience and veterans have already sacrificed a great deal, being able to take care of our veterans in Northern Colorado would not be possible without the support of Subaru of Loveland. Pictured is a check to Vets4Life in part possible because of Subaru of Loveland - this check allowed over 30 veterans to access physical activity and community through CrossFit DNR. This community has embraced veterans and understands the physical and mental support that CrossFit and other activities provide veterans. Allis Gilbert Executive Director

KidsPak + Subaru Of Loveland 2019 Partnership - Maia M

Subaru of Loveland has been an integral part of the success of the Loveland Rotary KidsPak; a weekend food program for hungry students in the Thompson School District. We are entering our 7th year of partnership in fighting hunger in our schools. The Love Promise has created over 282,000 meals as the result of $198,000 in contributions during the Share the Love event. Without Subaru of Loveland’s help, KidsPak would not be a reliable source to fight hunger on the weekends. In addition, Subaru of Loveland delivers each Wednesday to four schools in the district. This is one of fourteen routes that delivers food to schools in a timely manner.Subaru of Loveland also supports our trip to the Disney on Ice in March. To date, 150 students from Title 1 schools have had an opportunity to participate in a special night out. This relationship has made a substantial impact on our community. In return, the KidsPak community has directly impacted Subaru with 23 sales over the last two years.

A Heart for Art and Children - Natalie M

What is the international symbol for love? A heart, of course. And what is inside the word heart? Art. Subaru of Loveland has a heart for Art! Loveland, known as the City with a Heart, is in Northern Colorado and was voted the 2nd best Art town in America, hosting the longest running Artisan Show and largest outdoor Sculpture show in the state. Joe Gebhardt, owner of Subaru of Loveland, has been a strong community partner and long-standing member of the Rotary Club and is actively passing the torch of philanthropy to his close-knit family members. Not only are long established non-profits supported by the Gebhardt family, they have also taken up the task of helping new non-profits reach their goals. Of late, Colorado Kids Create Inc. was sponsored during Loveland’s historic Art weekend which is attended by 20,000+ people! I remember a couple of years back sitting at the Muse, a local coffee shop, with my brain fueled by a double latte and chatting with Suzy Gebhardt about dreams for Colorado Kids Create Inc. At the time, there were only a couple of board members She listened intently as I told her stories about the teachers and students and the beautiful happenings in my journey as CKC’s Founder. Suzy said that if I ever had a fundraiser she would help. She didn’t verbally make a promise but her word alone was as good as gold. When our charity was finally ready to have a fundraiser, Subaru of Loveland came through as a Silver Sponsor for Colorado teachers and students! Colorado Kids Create Inc. is a 501-c3 purposing to encourage artistic self-expression in youth and empower Colorado teachers, raising funds for Art supplies. Money for school Art programs is being slashed across our nation and some teachers in Colorado receive less than $1.00 per student, per year for Art supplies. Colorado students and teachers are helping solve this problem via a state-wide drawing contest. The artwork submitted is used to illustrate grade-school books/e-books about Colorado and Western heritage, a required subject for 4th graders. 100% of book/e-book sales on Amazon goes back to schools for Art supplies. The Carousel of Happiness is a CKC story written about Scott Harrison, a Vietnam Veteran, who ended up working towards peaceful resolve through Amnesty International and carved wooden animals for a carousel in the small mountain town of Nederland. The local joke is that to be a citizen of Nederland, one must have to have a dog and drive a Subaru. One of last year’s drawing entries came from Ethan Yang, a motivated 4th grader who attends Franklin School of Innovation in Pueblo. Born with arthrogryposis, a muscle dis-order that causes multiple contractures and severely impacts the use of fingers and hands, Ethan none-the-less is distinguishing himself as an Artist. His depiction of the Denver, Broncos helmet logo created with markers, was submitted in the CKC contest and Ethan had the honor of having his creation judged on the state level. Loveland is a hub of artistic expression and set to become a fulcrum of creative activity for children as well as adults. Thank you to Subaru of Loveland for believing in individual dreams and start-ups and for keeping promises made in love for the betterment of Colorado communities.

Subaru of Loveland Fights Hunger & Makes Memories

Subaru of Loveland Helps Fight Hunger - Tom C

KidsPak is a Loveland Rotary project that started in the 2009 school year to help provide low income students in the Thompson School District with supplementary food for them to eat at home on weekends. For many students, the meals they receive at school are sometimes the only healthy meals they get. Initially, three schools and 34 students participated in the program. KidsPak continued to grow year after yearas we looked at the needs of each school in the Thompson School District. The Thompson School District which services the towns of Loveland and Berthoud, Colorado has a 40% "free and reduced lunch " rate which translates into 6,500 students. Since its start, KidsPak has methodically added elementary, middle and high schools and just last year we added early childhood sites to our program. KidsPak iscurrently serving 638 students in 38 schools. As the growth of the program continued to rise, Rotarians looked for ways to share our students needs with the community and raise money to help the program meet the growing needs of the local children. Six years ago, KidsPak approached Subaru of Loveland General Manager Chris Gebhardt about borrowing a Subaru to create awareness around hunger. We came up with an idea to fill a Subaru Forester with granola bars (6122 to be exact) and placing it at the local shopping mall to draw attention to how much food is needed to serve our local students. The publicwas invited to guess the numbers of bars in the car and over1,000 entries were received. Through this promotion, we received great press in the local community. That awareness campaign at our local mall grew into a year round partnership with Subaru of Loveland. Not only did the Gebhardt family raise money for KidsPak but they got their whole Subaru of Loveland team involved. Each week, the Subaru of Loveland team packs over 600 weekend meals for local students and delivers them to local schools. When Subaru of America provided retailers the option to choose a “hometown” charity for the annual Share the Love event, Chris Gebhardt reached out to us to see if we would be interested. We were so excited to grow our partnership with Subaru of Loveland and worked hard to use this opportunity to increase awareness of student hunger in the community. We began by making sure every employee at Subaru of Loveland understood what KidsPak was about and the impact Share the Love could help us provide in the community. We worked hard to get the local media and our Rotary members involved and had weekly meetings throughout Share the Love to track our progress. We also held a food packing competition between the Subaru of Loveland employees and local teachers at Subaru of Loveland to kick off Share the Love. Over the last 6 years, Subaru of Loveland has raised over $121,366.00 for KidsPak through the Share the Love program and other fundraising events year round. Each customer clearly understands that their Share the Love Hometown Charity donation creates 67 food bags for hungry students in the local Thompson schools. Going into this year, KidsPak has created almost 35,000 weekend food bags all through the generous support of Subaru of Loveland. Subaru of Loveland is a shining example of a local business working with the community to make a difference in fighting hunger. Our work would not be possible without the leadership of Chris & Greg Gebhardt and the Subaru of Loveland family. Together we are making a difference. Tom Carrigan KidsPak


Subaru Gives Back To America's Kids Belong - Mimi S

Thank You Subaru of Loveland and the Gebhardt Family for making Marisa's dream of owning her own car come true! Marisa is 20 years old and entered foster care a few years prior to aging out of the system and faced starting her adult life on her own with very little supports. She is a quiet and soft spoken young lady but she knows what she wants and is working hard to achieve her goals. Marisa lives in her own apartment , works almost full time and is going to school to become an aesthetician. She loves things revolving around hair, skin, and make up. Marisa was spending anywhere from 2-4 hours a day riding the bus to work and school. Sometimes she would have to use Uber because of the time factor and this was getting very expensive for Marisa. Subaru of Loveland and the Gebhardt Family heard about Marisa's dream to have a car and they surprised her with it at our Be Mine Gala Fundraiser in February. Marisa was shocked and overwhelmed by their generosity and is so grateful for this gift! Thank you for caring about this young lady and supporting her as she navigates life on her own.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Subaru of Loveland and the impact their partnership has had to help us at the McKee Foundation reach new goals. In 2017 Subaru of Loveland partnered on all of our events from a Bike Tour and Turkey Trot supporting our Gala with the donation of a Subaru Outback. Through these events, we were able to reach over 4,200 people and raise almost $300,000 to help community health programs such as the Heart Health Program and Nursing Scholarships. We could not have reached these people without the support of amazing partners led by Subaru of Loveland. Their commitment to the community doesn't stop at the dealership. It is clear the entire team feels a dedication to supporting not only individual customers but also community partners, helping to fill the gaps in our community. I am forever grateful to the whole team at Subaru of Loveland, they have gone above and beyond to help us not only meet our goals but stretch to fulfill the needs of the hospital, patients, and community.

Out of the water - Neil P

We had leased our former Subaru through a different dealership and then took our car for regular maintenance to another dealership. Of the 3 dealerships we have been to, Subaru Loveland blew our expectations out of the water. We cannot wait to go back for our routine maintenance because the team is so great. The person who showed us all the functions of our vehicle was so thorough and knowledgeable. The sales process was smooth and quick and the finance process was the easiest we have been through. We love Subaru Loveland and its worth the drive from Denver because of the high, quality of service we received.

Subaru of Loveland Loves to Help: Pot of Gold 2017 - Chris G

For the second year in a row, Subaru of Loveland had the honor of joining the Colorado Eagles hockey organization in supporting a deserving local family through the "Pot of Gold" fundraiser. During the month of February, our store set aside $50 from each new car sold to contribute toward medical expenses for the Holt family. 12-year-old Chelbi Holt is bravely battling cancer, and funds raised from this event will offset medical expenses and allow her family to be with her during this challenging time. On March 3rd, we attended the hockey game and hosted a Chuck-a-Puck contest. Fans had a blast throwing pucks into our open Outback sun roof, and each puck that made it in added funds to our donation. When all was said and done, Subaru of Loveland was thrilled to present the Holt family with a check for $5,000. In all, the event raised a total of $53,223 for the family, and it was truly a very special night. We are continuing to follow Chelbi's journey and feel grateful for this opportunity to make a difference to a very special and deserving family through the Subaru Love Promise.

Subaru of Loveland Shows LHS Athletes Big Support - Kevin C

Everyone who works in education knows that we are always searching for ways to help our students while operating with limited funds. Then a business like Subaru of Loveland steps in with their Love Promise program and donates almost $3,000 ($25 for every car sold in December 2016) to provide scholarships to cover the fees of all of our winter athletes in need. The fees our student athletes pay go to cover the big expenses involved in high school sports, such as equipment, officials and transportation to games. This generous donation from Subaru of Loveland helped made a great sports season even better for our LHS Indians. We are so fortunate to have Subaru of Loveland in our community to support our schools and students! -Kevin Clark, AD LHS

Worth the drive - Jeryna S

Have had terrible experiences at two other dealerships so this dealership is a pleasure to do business with. I drive 15 miles to do this and it is very worth it. I don't like to wait and so far have always been good with that - they are sensitive and always get my service done in less time than predicted. Thanks Kelsey.
