Foodnet Support - Megan O

The Foodnet Meals on Wheels mission is to provide meals and other nutrition services that promote dignity, well-being, and independence for older adults and other persons who live in Tompkins County. We provide daily healthy meals, nutrition counseling, and safety checks to over 400 vulnerable seniors. As a 501 (C)3, we face challenges that many nonprofit organizations grapple with daily. The process of acquiring resources can be arduous, with varying results, disrupting our ability to provide services to our clients. Funding from businesses, foundations, government entities, and generous community members is essential and helps us combat inflation and rising costs. Maguire Family of Dealerships goes above and beyond to provide us with resources to enable our mission to continue. We have received monetary support from Subaru of America and the Maguire Family of Dealerships and Maguire Subaru from the national Subaru Share The Love® Event. The local Maguire Subaru of Ithaca team made the campaign process easy and rewarding, demonstrating their commitment to the community where their employees live and work. Throughout the months-long campaign, Maguire selected Foodnet as their “Hometown Charity” of choice, generating donations for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased and raised over $15k for our organization in 2022-2023. Not only does Maguire Family of Dealerships support Foodnet, their staff are very active in so many other charities. While monetary support is helpful, their staff also volunteer for different nonprofits across Tompkins County. There are many nonprofits in our area, and Maguire provides various resources for as many as they can with the resources they have. We are appreciative of their efforts!

A Furever Home for Fonzie - Jackie P

Fonzie was brought to the Humane Society of Schuyler County after law enforcement removed three dogs and another cat from their residence. His body was covered in scabs from flea dermatitis, he had an abscess on his neck requiring immediate veterinary care, and he was FIV positive. Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) is one of the most common and consequential infectious diseases of cats around the world. The primary mode of transmission for FIV is through bite wounds from an infected cat. However, it is important to note that while it is impossible to predict the survival of a cat infected with FIV, they can live very normal, healthy lives for many years with regular veterinary care. From the minute Fonzie arrived he had a purr you could hear across a room. Once he was neutered, treated for parasites and his wound healed he was ready for the adoption floor. Unfortunately, Fonzie had two strikes against him: he was a “black” cat and FIV positive. Several people met Fonzie but upon hearing “FIV positive” they abruptly dismissed him. On October 29, an older woman came to the shelter, accompanied by her daughter, looking for a cat companion. While the older lady found her kitty, the daughter was immediately drawn to Fonzie. With crossed paws we explained FIV but the adopter was undaunted. And so on November 6, Fonzie went to his furever home! Thanks for your support, Subaru!

Maguire Subaru Gives Back to Help Kids in Need - Ashley G

Maguire Subaru partnered with the rest of the Maguire Dealerships and Insurance Agencies to do a toy drive for Cops, Kids and Toys. Cops, Kids and Toys is a local charity organization in Tompkins County, New York that collects, purchases and distributes toys to financially disadvantaged kids in our community for the holidays. Maguire collected toys from November to the early part of December and even had a Jeans Day Event for their staff and employees. This event allowed their employees to wear Jeans on a Friday if they donated a toy for the cause. Due to Maguire's generosity with this toy drive, many children will be able to open gifts during this holiday season! Thank you Maguire for all you do to help others in our community!

Subaru Loves Pets-Humane Society Schuyler County - Georgie T

Ruger came to us from an overcrowdedm rural shelter in North Carolina where he had arrived as a stray, timid and frightened. At just 7 months old, Ruger found himself homeless. With the help of some very caring people, Ruger made the journey to upstate New York with 30 travelling companions. After a few short weeks Ruger gained his confidence (and some weight) and blossomed into a sweet and gentle boy. Several of his travelling buddies were soon adopted, but not Ruger. Until one chilly October morning a family came to meet one of his cohorts, but also met Ruger and it was an instant connection. Just before Halloween he joined his new young family of three young girls. He waits for them to get off the school bus every day, and shares in all of the family adventures! A little love can truly change the world. Thanks to our friends at Maguire Suburu for helping to change life for Ruger.

Maguire Subaru Delivers Support - Georgie T

The Covid - 19 pandemic has had an extraordinary impact on fundraising efforts for not for profits around the area and animal shelters are no exception. At the Humane Society of Schuyler County we work hard to continue to meet the needs of the animals in our care, despite the challenges the pandemic presents. During the October Subaru's Share the Love Event, coordinator Ashley Greenley and the employees of the Maguire Family of Dealerships, pulled out all the stops to support the shelter. While Ashley had initially envisioned a much larger event, the employees pulled together to collect two Subarus full of supplies, food, treats and toys to help us care for our shelter animals. Their generosity was simply overwhelming and has helped us to ready numerous dogs and cats for adoption.
