Loves to Care for Childrens National - Marci H

Hi friends at Fitzgerald Subaru Gaithersburg - I would like to start by thanking you from the bottom of my heart and on behalf of my team here at the Children’s National Hospital in Montgomery County, for the awesome donation of blankets for the children we treat. Getting to meet your team and sharing our site with you was fun. As I am sure you can imagine it is frightening and sometimes painful for the children and families who come here for their healthcare needs. The providers, nurses and staff are always looking for creative ways to ease the children’s pain, comfort them and make them feel more at ease while they are with us. The generous donation of blankets you provided, helps us comfort them while they are here and continues to warm and comfort them at home. The smiles we see on the children’s faces when they receive one of your blankets is priceless! Our nurses and providers who take care of the children love having the opportunity to offer something comforting in addition to their words while ensuring the children get all they need to heal and get well. See the wonderful pictures of our Hematology/Oncology team presenting blankets to several of our patients receiving their chemotherapy just the other day! Please be assured that your blankets will be put to good use to provide comfort to those children right here in our community. Thank you for your generosity and continued support of Children’s National Hospital. With gratitude and sincerity - Marci Harper Scott - Practice Manager and the entire team at Children’s National Hospital of Montgomery County !

Here are some pictures of one of our classrooms using a resource provided by the Subaru donation. We are so excited and grateful to have this sound sorting kit! Students are able to practice sorting initial sounds and identifying with the corresponding letter during small group instruction. This will help them segment and blend words while reading! Thank you so much!

Fitzgerald Gaithersburg Loves Pets - Laura S

During Subaru's Loves Pets month, Humane Rescue Alliance was once again invited by Dottie and the Fitzgerald team to be chosen participants for this campaign. Not only do the funds help us take care of animals in our care by supporting animal care, medical and behavior needs, as well as the rescue work we perform, HRA was invited to host an adoption event at the Gaithersburg dealership. Thanks to the team for pulling out all the stops to make the event autumn themed and enjoyable by animals and humans. We successfully adopted out 14 animals. The staff were so friendly in welcoming HRA, our volunteers and all of the people who came out to the meet our animals.

Family Addition - Tammy M

My name is Tammy and I work for Fitzgerald Subaru. I found out about a pet adoption event thru my job and was assigned to work that day. I was so excited to greet all of the animals that came. I began talking with another family member and sending pictures to her of the animals I had taken with my phone. I began looking at the cats because I thought that a cat would make a great addition to our home...I was unaware of the kitten that was on the truck. After I was told about the kitten I asked to get on the truck to look at her and I FELL IN LOVE IMMEDIATELY!!!!! She was perfect!!! I brought her home to the family and everyone fell in love with her, we renamed her Queen because she rules the house now. It is so great to come home to her little bells jingling as she's running to you to love on you. She loves to cuddle too! I am so happy with her and excited about what she brings to our family. She's all love!!

Subaru Loves Pets Adoption Event at Gaithersburg - Laura S

Through the Subaru Loves Pets campaign and our incredible long-standing partnership with Fitzgerald Subaru, Humane Rescue Alliance (HRA) was able to showcase our many adoptable animals during a Gaithersburg adoption event (safely and securely). We heard from one family who adopted a cat from HRA over three years ago who then joined their two 20-year old beloved cats becoming one big happy family. Sadly, their dear senior cats passed away earlier this year leaving the family heartbroken. The family attended the Gaithersburg adoption event and added two new cats - now named Eleanor and Martha who have brought much joy and happiness into their home. They have bonded well with their adopted HRA alum who are now all friends. "It's been such a smooth transition and their presence has really helped my husband and I heal from the loss of our elderly cats, who we miss very much. And when I need to buy a new car, I will absolutely purchase the car from that Subaru dealership!". Thanks to the Fitzgerald team for helping make this happen!

Fitzgerald Shares the Love with HRA - Laura S

During the 2019 Subaru Share the Love Drive, Dottie Fitzgerald and the team at Fitzgerald Auto Mall raised an incredible $75,000 for the animals of HRA. While we couldn't be together in person, we were thrilled to connect for a virtual conversation and check presentation between Dottie Fitzgerald and Lisa LaFontaine, HRA's President and CEO. Many thanks to the team! We are also looking forward to hosting an adoption event Saturday Oct. 10 from 10am - 1pm at the Gaithersburg location. CDC guidelines apply.

Fitzgerald Makes Special Delivery - Dani R

At the Humane Rescue Alliance, we’re dedicated to protecting animals and to placing and keeping them with caring families, and we deliver on that promise through our broad range of vital services. However, non of our critical work would be possible without the generous support of our community and partners like Fitzgerald. Recently, the Fitzgerald team delivered two Subaru vehicles packed with pet food, supplies, and toys to our adoption center. Adoptable pup Rolo was the first to test out the toys. We were thrilled to report to the Fitzgerald team that he found a loving, new home later that day. Thank you Dottie and the entire Fitzgerald team! We couldn't do what we do without you!
