Each year we have been able to increase our giving which brings our staff and customers together to benefit these great causes. Charity and giving is not just over Thanksgiving and the holidays, but is ongoing which means that our gifts and the organizations that are so integral to our community must be supported throughout the year.

Dan Perkins Subaru Garden - Avrom S

This Spring our team at Dan Perkins Subaru worked hard to plant a beautiful vegetable garden at our retail facility. They cleared an area and planted heirloom and cherry tomatoes, melons, peppers, eggplant, squash, zucchini and chili peppers. We also have peach trees and plum trees. All this for the benefit of our staff and customers. Everyone is welcome to harvest the bounty. What a bounty it has been. Throughout the summer and through fall the garden has been incredible. The tomatoes and eggplant have been a huge hit as well as some unexpectedly super hot chili peppers. The feed back from our customers has been great, too. Comments like, "I fried up some of the long eggplant and they were delicious" as well as "what a treat to add those tomatoes to my salad for lunch." It took some hard work by our staff, but the rewards were well worth it.

Adopt a classroom - Avrom S

Over the years, Dan Perkins Subaru has sponsored and adopted classrooms from our local schools. We have donated books to the libraries in Bridgeport, Ct, Milford, Ct and Ansonia, Ct. In addition to books these schools have also been able to utilize monetary donations to benefit their students. Subaru of America and the Subaru Loves learning initiative were instrumental in making this program such a success. The best part for us as a Subaru retailer is not only the fact that we can help these schools, but the awesome notes we received with personal signatures from the kids.

Connecticut beach clean up - AVROM S

September 18th 2022. Gulf Beach Milford, Ct. What an awesome event and thanks to all the volunteers who gave their Sunday morning to clean up one of the most popular beaches in our community. Save the Sound was on hand to coordinate the event with absolute precision. At first glance, the beach looked clean with very little debris. Our volunteers scoured the beach for about two hours and collected about 70 pounds of garbage including an amazing over 2500 cigarette butts. Lots of plastic straws, small pieces of plastic and plastic bottle caps also made up the bulk of the items collected and even though these items are small, they have a huge impact to the health of our shoreline and our marine animals. We had families, friends and staff come out to help which made the event a lot of fun. Thankfully, other than a lot of wind the weather was perfect. We are looking forward to next year. Meanwhile enjoy our natural resources by cleaning up. Leave with only photographs and leave behind only footprints. DAN PERKINS SUBARU

Connecticut Humane Society - Avrom S

Dan Perkins Subaru is proud to have sponsored the adoption of many pets in need of great homes for many years through the Connecticut Humane Society . This year is no different as we prepare for Subaru Loves Pets. In fact the support and hard work never stops. The Humane Society is always looking for new homes for animals. Jojo’s “Mewsic” Saved Her Life Jojo story page She wasn’t easy to spot. And she didn’t realize her tiny “mews” would catch the attention of anything other than the mom she was looking for. Instead she caught the attention of the two-legged, human variety. Jojo, a little black kitten, was stuck in a storm drain. She had tried and tried to get out, but it just wasn’t possible. When a local animal control officer responded, Jojo really hoped her scary, miniature hiss was enough to frighten him off until she could find her mom to help. But alas, the human had caught her! With no mom in sight, Jojo was headed to a shelter. And it’s a good thing, too! Jojo was too tiny to be on her own. The animal control officer turned to the Connecticut Humane Society for help. She was underweight suffering from an upper respiratory infection, and struggling with an upset stomach—imagine all of that, on top of being a shy and scared little kitten! The staff veterinary team treated her infection and prescribed her a regimen to grow big and strong—and off to a foster home she went. With time and patience, Jojo’s foster mom was able to give her the love and snuggles she deserved. Her warning hisses soon gave way to loud, happy purrs and, before long, she found her new family. When a pet is found outside, injured or lost, it’s hard to know what kind of care they’ll need. With complications of soaring summer heat, it makes a pet’s plight all the more urgent. Thanks to your kindness, pets like Jojo can rest easy, knowing a fresh start is ahead because people like you never give up on them! We encourage all to support this great organization. One of the ways we can do this year round is by donating food and pet supplies at Dan Perkins Subaru, 1 Boston Post rd, Milford, Ct
