On behalf of all of us from the Canada family, we would like to thank Quality Subaru, and all of you who helped support us in giving back to our community!

15th Annual Fall Harvest Dinner


Did you know that Make-A-Wish grants more than 15,000 wishes nationwide every year? That’s a lot, yes. But that’s only 50% of the eligible kids. Every hour of every day, on average, three children are diagnosed with a critical illness. Every one of these kids needs a wish to give them strength and help them heal. I’m fundraising so more deserving kids and their families can know the true happiness, relief and renewal a wish can bring. Quality Subaru has donated to the TRAILBLAZER CHALLENGE, a 26 mile hike and fundraiser for MAKE A WISH, one of Quality Subaru is proudly sponsoring Jay O'Connell, a long time and loyal customer and Subaru owner since 1977. Jay will be doing the 26 mile hike at Bear Mountain State Park, NY on September 10,2022. Please consider donating to a great effort to make the lives of the MAKE A WISH children brighter.

The event was a great success and everyone is looking forward to the 13th annual tournament. Founded in 1893, The Meriden Humane Society is a non-profit, no kill animal shelter and rescue facility.

Quality Subaru makes brighter futures for pets - Priscilla C

When the chips were down, the heroes were found at Quality Subaru. Through the 2021 Share the Love campaign, Quality Subaru and its generous customers donated $8,460 to pets in crisis at Connecticut Humane Society. When families need a hand up in caring for their pets, they turn to CHS for low cost veterinary care, its Pet Food Pantry, free community Wellness Clinics, animal care education and more. Pets across the state depend on Subaru donors to share the love and bridge the gap between crisis and solution. And in 2021, it was the Quality Subaru family that made it possible for local pets to stay with their families who love them. When a pet is homeless, injured, or just needs TLC, CHS opens its doors and provides them with medical, behavioral and socialization care as well as a soft bed and a full belly. Pets like Onyx. Onyx is a handsome fellow, so it’s hard to imagine that he was once a bit of a mess. The scruffy terrier mix had chewed his tail to the bone. He had a red, inflamed bump in his eye and a spinal fracture. Because Quality Subaru supports local pets, Onyx got all the care he needed, and as much time as he needed to find the family meant for him. Quality Subaru’s commitment to pets has been making brighter futures for thousands of furry friends since 2015. Over $98,000 and counting in donations to heal pets with nowhere else to turn. They are an amazing friend to the pets and an incredible partner for the CT Humane Society. Thank you friends, we are proud and grateful to work together to improve share the love and improve the lives of pets throughout the state.

Quality Subaru Partners with Pulaski School - Christine L

On November 3, 2021, Meriden Public School honored Quality Subaru for the November Community Support Award. Quality Subaru has partnered with Adopt a Classroom and has generously donated $3000 to support Casimir Pulaski teachers. This year, Subaru has adopted 6 teachers and classrooms at Casimir Pulaski School and provided each teacher with $500 to provide students with enriching educational tools and materials to make learning fun and engaging for students. Casimir Pulaski’s 4 specialist teachers that teach Art, Music, Technology, and Physical Education and along with our School Psychologist and Teacher of the Year each received $500 for their students. These teachers were able to select additional classroom materials such as social emotional learning materials, physical fitness equipment, engaging art supplies, additional musical instruments, and more books for classroom libraries. Students and teachers are appreciative of the extra hands-on materials that enrich their learning at Casimir Pulaski School. Patti Caruth shared, “My students chose the items they were interested in. Some of these included new books for our library, calming bottle kits to make during SEL and take home, colored sticky notes, and new recess equipment. My students are excited to have these new materials to use every day.” Technology teacher Amy Benigni shared, “The Subaru Adopt a Classroom donation enabled me to purchase 5 Code and Go Mice and 2 Botley Coding Robots. My students absolutely love these coding robots and always ask to use them in class! These STEM robots teach kids how to code through teamwork, collaboration, and problem solving.” PE teacher, Rob Kedzior shared, “I have purchased materials to help practice mindfulness and body control which can be used inside the classrooms and outdoors. The activity set offers multiple activities that promote movement and fitness while being in a smaller space and will be beneficial during the cold winter months when PE classes take place inside the classroom.” Music teacher, Hannah Fraser shared, “Thanks to Quality Subaru, I was able to order tools for the music room such as colored coded ukulele strings to make playing accessible for more students, ukulele tuners, and small percussion instruments. Students love having more hands-on instruments in our classroom.” We truly appreciate the support that Quality Subaru has shown to our students and teachers. It is with great appreciation that we provided Quality Subaru with the Meriden Public Schools Community Support award. Thank you to Joe Blichfeldt, Owner of Quality Subaru of Wallingford for his partnership with Meriden Public Schools.
