Koeppel Subaru Loves to Help! - Lakia B

Koeppel Subaru's very own Justin Peralta showing his Subaru Loves To Help spirit by distributing blankets & socks at CAMBA - The Kings Inn Family Center! CAMBA’s holistic supports are focused on ending generational cycles of poverty and homelessness. While families are living in shelter, staff provide parents with the skills they need to transition out of shelter including job training and placement opportunities for unemployed parents, and assistance in understanding and supporting their children’s health, emotional well-being and development. Each family has an individualized service plan that outlines their unique set of strengths and needs, along with the steps needed to stabilize family functioning and transition to permanent housing as soon as possible. Emphasis in securing active benefits, employment, searching for permanent housing and securing a better quality of life when returning to the community is paramount.​ CAMBA is one of the first NYC shelter operators to bring in after-school programs for middle school youth, and mental health services to young mothers living in shelter. In 2020 CAMBA placed 316 families into permanent housing.

Boroughbred Dumplin Gets to go Home! - Liliana B

We first met Dumplin in July when she arrived as a stray at the care center. A 1 year old brindled beauty, she was found running around a neighborhood before the police were able to bring her in. She had a gentle air about her and although shy, was a bundle of joy outside of her kennel. The adoptions team had the pleasure of having her placed in the space in front of our office and every morning, we would stop by to say hello. As the days went by, her eyes began to reflect the same sadness we saw in the rest of the dogs’ face; one filled with longing to be in a home and away from the stress of the shelter environment. Nights were difficult as we turned off our computers and made our way out of the room; we could see Dumplin staring at us, always alert and wondering why we couldn’t take her with us. As weeks turned into months, we constantly checked her profile for new applications, hoping that a family would click on her profile and be enamored by her sweet face. That special day that we had all been waiting for finally came in October - right around the time when leaves began to change to orange and red hues, when the prospect of a new adventure could be felt in the air. When we brought Dumplin to meet her soon to be family, she instantly transformed back into her social and bouncy self, giving them kisses before laying down for belly rubs and pets. Her eyes no longer reflected the sadness we grew accustomed to, a spark had ignited in her again and the cloud of depression had evaporated. Her family knew she was going home with them that day and as bittersweet as it was, we were happy to see her go. Dumplin has since been living in the comfort of a home with a loving family. There are countless teams and organizations that strive to help shelter animals get adopted; Koeppel Subaru has consistently supported us in our mission to find homes for every animal that comes through our doors. Through their Subaru Love Promise campaign, Koeppel Subaru helped raise awareness for shelter animals who are traditionally overlooked. Thanks to their Subaru Love Promise campaign, Dumplin and many other shelter animals were able to start new adventures in their forever homes. Thank you Koeppel Subaru!

Koeppel Kares about Teachers! - Jacquelyn S

Koeppel Kares about teachers! During the month of September 2021 Koeppel hosted a Koeppel Teachers Award Contest. The Grand Prize was $1000 with 2nd Place at $750 and 3rd Place at $500. We received nominations from all five boroughs of New York City, each highlighting the amazing ways the nominees went Above & Beyond for their students. Teachers really are the real-life heroes of today! Our 1st Place Winner, Mr. Francis Belizario of St. Bartholomew Catholic Academy, is a champion of FIRST robotics, bringing robotics engineering to students who might not have had the opportunity to be expose to its possibilities. Our 2nd Place Winner, Ms. Erin Manfredonia of P.S. 229Q, a kindergarten teacher for 10 years. Erin was blessed to have her own daughter during the pandemic, and while the world didn’t know what to do, Erin never stopped working! She was so dedicated to the children of her class that she immediately set up remote learning to transition them best herself. Our 3rd Place Winner, Ms. Karen Aguilar of P.S. 143 Louis Armstrong School, a special education teacher, went above and beyond with her knowledge to create new ways of engaging the children she teaches.

Supporting MSABC and the American Cancer Society - Molly D

We are so honored to have Koeppel Subaru as a proud supporter of our Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Chapter here in Queens! The American Cancer Society started Making Strides Against Breast Cancer as a way to unite communities in the fight against this deadly disease. Today, Making Strides is the largest network of breast cancer events in the nation - and we do more than just walk. We raise money to help the American Cancer Society fund groundbreaking breast cancer research and provide patient services like free rides to chemo, free places to stay near treatment, and a live 24/7 cancer helpline. But we can’t do any of this without the help of people like Koeppel Subaru!

Sassy the Wonder Cat - John C

As NYC’s only open admission shelter, Animal Care Centers of NYC takes in every single animal that comes through our doors. Some are found roaming the streets and others are brought in by their families who can no longer care for them for one reason or another. Sassy, a 13 year old cat with mild dental disease, unfortunately could not move with her former owner into a new apartment and found herself at our Brooklyn shelter. While she was certainly dealt an unfortunate hand, Sassy took it in stride and acclimated to the shelter life rather quickly given her age. At first, she was very timid in her kennel, but within a few days she was readily accepting pets and attention from our feline behavior staff and volunteers. Older cats typically stick around longer than the rest of the population, but Sassy’s sweet demeanor landed her a forever home in quick fashion. It was in this home that we learned of Sassy’s true power. Sassy’s newly acquired human brother struggles with Autism and OCD. On her first day home, he had been huddled on a sofa by himself all afternoon, just keeping to himself, making sudden body movements and loud staccato screeches. He then had a huge outburst where several TV remotes went flying as he yelled out in pain. Instead of fleeing, Sassy went over to him and then sat by his feet. She stayed in that position despite more sudden movements, feet stomping, and loud screams. Finally, the brother noticed her for the first time in hours! With guidance, he pet her gently and quickly learned that she enjoyed having her cheeks and chin scratched. Just like that, Sassy’s new brother was back from that faraway place where his family thought he couldn’t be reached. The family was so amazed at how Sassy just seemed to know what to do – just be there for him. It’s thanks to our partnerships with companies like Koeppel Subaru that we’re able to spread the word about our work and our available animals, like Sassy. Without their support and generosity, we would not be able to carry out our mission of ending animal homelessness in NYC. We could not be more grateful to be a part of the Subaru Love Promise campaign with them and look forward to working together again in the future.
