Spring Cleaning - Brittany D

As the weather starts to warm up everyone is wanting to enjoy the outdoors more and more while social distancing. Our team at Farrish Subaru decided to dedicate our free time to doing a trail cleanup in hopes to leave a clean pathway for our local neighbors to enjoy the sights and the outdoors. Nottoway park is a beautiful 84-acre park located in Vienna, VA. Visitors can make a day out of taking on the fitness trail (complete with training equipment along the path), playing tennis, basketball, volleyball, having a picnic or using their wooded nature path. During the summer months they also host a series of free public concerts weekly. This park is a great place to visit or hangout for the day with family! We’re hoping to be able to assist with these trail cleanups regularly at this park and others to keep our local parks beautiful and show our support for the great outdoors.

Commending Brittany Dibrango, Delivery Specialist - M B

Within a few weeks of purchasing my Legacy on 10/14/18, I first met Brittany for an extended session in which she helped me to understand the finer points of my new car- it's navigation system, radio station preferences, Apple Car play, and the electronic safety features that make my car a pleasure to drive. Brittany was welcoming and patient and explained information carefully. Her knowledge and enthusiasm were obvious. Recently in January 2021 due to an update glitch, a new navigation system needed to be ordered and re-installed in my Legacy. When I picked up my car 2 weeks later Brittany, observing all Covid protocols, met with me to help re-establish the special features that I had come to rely upon and enjoy. A month later in late February, 2021 Brittany met with me again to "tweak" some minor issues that were not clearly explained in the manual. She also made sure I had an easy way to navigate home from a less familiar or new location. Brittany is an expert at explaining the electronic features in direct relatable terms. She is patient and thorough and sensitive to the needs of an older driver. Every visit ends with the comment, spoken sincerely, "Call me if you have any other questions!" You are extremely fortunate to have Brittany Dibrango on your staff. She is an asset to your company, your dealership, and to all who have the good fortune to meet her.

Subaru Loves to Care - Kayla D

This year Farrish Subaru partnered with Embry Rucker Community Shelter to donate blankets in recognition of National Homeless Youth Awareness Month. Subaru and its retailers donated a total of 50,000 blankets to local homeless shelters across the country. Embry Rucker Community Shelter in Reston VA is a fantastic facility with dedicated members and volunteers working year round to assist people in our community and help them to get out of difficult situations. They offer many different services such as shelter from the extreme heat and cold, academic tutoring for children, onsite meals and medical assistance. We are so happy to know that there is such a wonderful place in our area that people can go to in a time of need. We hope these Subaru blankets will help bring some comfort and joy to everyone there this holiday season.

A Special Day for HART's Dogs! - Kim R

Homeless Animals Rescue Team (HART) had the honor to hold a special adoption event at Farrish Subaru on October 18, 2020! The team at Farrish were incredibly welcoming to our volunteers, and to the dogs, puppies, and kittens that we brought in to show potential adopters. It was a great opportunity for us to spread the word about the work we do at HART. The afternoon was spent meeting so many great people and introducing some of our adoptable animals to them. We thank the Farrish Team and hope to be able to hold another event there in 2021!

Subaru Loves Learning - Kayla D

In October of this year Farrish Subaru had the pleasure to announce Daniels Run Elementary School in Fairfax, VA as the recipient of books for their students during the Subaru Loves Learning Campaign. The students received books geared toward science. The donation event was a great success and we are happy to know that the books are available to the minds of young readers. This Elementary School is unique because it is an Eco-School that has its own Eco-Code that encourages a green world. This school is well deserving of this donation because of their diverse curriculum and attitude about learning. Congratulations and Happy Learning!

Adding comfort to a beautiful space - Jessica A

The Schar Cancer Center at Invoa hospital is brand new and STUNNING. I brought a very new member of our team (it was just her 2nd day) along with me and she exclaimed “this is a hospital!!?”.As we waited in the lobby for the Farrish representative to arrive we talked to the hospital leads about the great resource this new cancer center is to patients and caregivers. Rather than having to go to many different facilities for various appointments, patients have everything they need right at their fingertips. When Kevin arrived from Farrish, we took a quick photo with all of the blankets and art kits and then had the pleasure of getting a tour of the facility from our hospital lead, Allison. The natural light, tree-top views, and beautiful art, made the Center feel less like a treatment center and more like a spa. Kevin shared a similar sentiment and Allison remarked “and your blankets only add to the feeling we are trying to cultivate for our patients”.It is so rewarding to get to facilitate a partnership that not only gives patients physical comfort, but also emotional.

Thank you Farrish Subaru for Sharing Hope & Warmth - Jenny H

Monday, June 25th was an exciting day for INOVA Fair Oaks! Spirits were high as hospital staff prepared for the blanket donation delivery from Farrish Subaru. Ralph Perkins from Farrish Subaru had helped make the delivery for the past two years and was looking forward to bringing hope and warmth to patients for the third year in a row. The LLS staff gathered out front to help Ralph unload the blankets to bring inside. A very special honored hero and proud Subaru owner, Dave Adler, was joining the delivery too. Dave is a cancer survivor and took some time to speak with Ralph about the incredible gift of hope and care that Subaru gives to patients. Dave shared with Ralph how he is doing well in remission and how glad he was to own a Subaru car!

Farrish Subaru Loves to Care! - Jenny H

The July 12th delivery day at INOVA Fair Oaks Hospital was filled with positive energy and a fun coincidence. During the delivery of the 80 blankets, 10 arts and crafts kits, and messages of hope, INOVA’s Allison Ewing shared with Ralph Perkins of Farrish Subaru that the crafts kits would be enjoyed by children in the family waiting area, and Dr. Mary explained how helpful the cards are to patients in staying positive.Dave Adler, an LLS Honored Hero, explained how he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 1999 and then only a year later was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in his shoulder. Now, in 2017, he is cancer free! When we asked why he wanted to support the Subaru delivery day, his reason was a nice surprise for Subaru. In 2007, he became a Subaru Outback owner because the car reminded him of his family’s station wagon when he was young. It has also provided the space he and his wife need as “Snowbirds” when they travel to Florida each year. Because of his connection to LLS and Subaru, Dave jumped at the chance to volunteer with the Subaru Loves to Care initiative. Seeing all the good Subaru does in the community, especially for hospitals, makes him feel proud to be a Subaru owner.
