Rye Subaru Pitches In

"Part of the Solution": Rye Subaru Makes Large Donation


 


Rye Subaru, a family operated car dealership serving New York and Connecticut residents since 1957 recently announced the donation of over $13,000 to "Part of the Solution" (POTS), a charitable organization designed to be a one-stop-shop that helps individuals and families go from crisis to stability, and ultimately on to self-sufficiency. The donation is part of Subaru's Share the Love campaign, with the auto company and its retail partners demonstrating their belief in making the world a better place by showing respect for all people.

Part of the Solution is a parish organization of the Church of the Resurrection that provides food and a soup kitchen, medical assistance, legal help, haircuts, showers, and more to people in the Bronx. POTS has its roots in Rye, NY as money given by Resurrection in 1982 enabled Fr. Edward (Ned) Murphy, S.J. to buy the building at 2763 Webster Avenue in the Bronx that is now a soup kitchen and homeless shelter. The Community Kitchen and Food Pantry provides more than 250,000 meals annually. The organization also helps with substance abuse treatment programs, educational and employment programs and public assistance and food stamps.

"We are so grateful to have been chosen for Rye Subaru's Share the Love event. This meaningful partnership helps POTS aid thousands of low-income New Yorkers on their journey from crisis to stability." said Angela Collard, a POTS' Development Associate. Collard accepted the over-sized check in the amount of $13,685 from a gathering of Rye Subaru team members at a ceremony held recently at the Rye auto dealer.

Subaru's "Share the Love" motto is a perfect fit for the Rye dealership that has been a family owned business for 60 years. Every member of the Rye Subaru team is handpicked for being trustworthy and knowledgeable. They are committed to treating customers like family too, with a full-service waiting area and free rides home. The Rye Subaru staff speaks four different languages, including English, Polish, Spanish and Russian.
