Throughout the month of July 2017 employees and visitors at Subaru of Pembroke Pines had the opportunity to handwrite personalized messages of hope to patients, they were also encouraged to visit lls.org/subaru and share online messages. Those who wrote a message of hope at the Subaru retailer dealership received a bracelet to help spread awareness of LLS and the automaker’s goal to provide hope and care, one gesture at a time.
Representatives from both Subaru of Pembroke and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Southern Florida Chapter joined to personally spread love, hope, and warmth to cancer patients and their families. They visited Memorial Hospital in Pembroke Pines, delivered blankets, craft kits and numerous hand-written messages of hope for patients on behalf of their customers and employees. The craft kits were donated for children battling cancer, and blankets were hand delivered to adult patients by the Subaru of Pembroke Pines team, led by Duane Massa, General Manager, and Bryan Medina, Sales Associate, in the hopes of providing comfort as they continue their fight against the disease.
“The Subaru ‘Loves to Care' event allows us as a Dealer to show that we do care very much for our surrounding community. It makes it possible to get out there and be face to face with people in need,” said Duane Massa, General Manager at Subaru of Pembroke Pines.
“Words cannot express the feeling of gratitude and pleasure we’ve received from the patients that we have provided blankets and craft kits too,” said DeAnn Hazey, Executive Director for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. “Going through treatment is hard when you are always cold, and those big, soft blankets are bringing a lot of warmth and relief. The craft kits are bringing hours of distraction for the children too.”
“At Subaru of Pembroke Pines, we aim to support our local community. By donating blankets and craft boxes we provide support for patients who often spend several hours in treatment. Through these hometown partnerships, we can reach more people with small gestures of comfort and care in their time of need, “ said Craig Zinn, President, and CEO at Craig Zinn Automotive Group.
