Farrish Subaru Loves Learning - Brittany D

Farrish Subaru had the pleasure of donating six supply filled boxes to Daniels Run Elementary School! We also had our team and customers write little notes of appreciation to all the teachers to show how much we care. The supply kits included things like pencils, dry erase boards & markers, headphones, Lysol wipes and more! The box afterwards can turn into a beautiful butterfly habitat. We happened to stop by on their open house day right before school starts next week. Mr. Smith, the principal, was kind enough to also take us on a little tour around the school and introduce us to a few teachers. This school hosts 1st grade all the way to 6th grade. Everyone in the front office was extremely pleasant and excited to put up our school bus and appreciation notes on display for everyone to see.

Blanket & Art Kit Donation - Brittany D

Farrish Subaru helps INOVA Schar Cancer institute almost all year round! This month we donated blankets and art kits to the children and patients in their facility. In conversation we found out that the children really enjoy the art kits. They include paint, markers, crayons, chalk, and glitter glue! This gives them something to enjoy and express their creativity. We really enjoy working with the team at Inova, everyone is always so wonderful and positive!

Keeping our Parks Beautiful - Brittany D

The sales department from Farrish Subaru took a half day and dedicated their time to tidying up their community park. Nottoway Park is located in Vienna, Virginia about a 10 minute drive from the dealership. A lot of our staff and client base spend time with their families in the outdoors and frequent this local park so keeping it clean is a must. There are so many awesome outdoor activities available at this park. We were able to spread out and cover a lot of ground and managed to remove a decent amount of litter. Farrish Subaru is committed to contributing to keep our Parks beautiful.

Healing Loss - Kristen L

I adopted Kent after losing a cat that was very important to me suddenly to cancer. I went online and search of the perfect cat but never really thought Momo could be replaced. Momo was really special companion cat for me, a "lap kitty" in the only one I had ever known or had. After Hours and weeks and months of searching for the perfect cat, I drove 2 hours to be introduced to Kent. He was called lap kitty when there are so few of them out there. I know right one meeting him when he crawled into my lap that he was the one for me. And right after taking him home, I learned that this cat was the special one who could heal the hole in my heart. We've been inseparable ever since. Thank you Rescue Angels of Southern Maryland for giving me Kent and thank Ourisman Subaru of Waldorf for choosing to donate to this wonderful rescue!

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.
