Subaru of New England aids Washington nonprofit

WASHINGTON — In honor of its golden anniversary and in celebration of 50 years of its love marketing campaign, Subaru of New England has provided support to Shepaug Valley Partnership.

Subaru of New England has worked alongside some of its retailers to fill 40 backpacks for this Washington nonprofit organization. Each backpack contains a first aid kit and toiletry bag that support the nonprofit’s mission of assisting teenagers in their transition from school to adult life.

“At Subaru of New England, we’re proud to be more than a car company,” said Executive Vice President and General Manager Jeffrey T Ruble. “We take pride in supporting organizations that are dedicated to helping the local community. We hope when receiving these backpacks, students know that they are not alone in this crucial chapter of their lives.”

2021 marks the 50th year since Subaru of New England was established as a privately owned automotive distributorship.

Shepaug Valley Partnership’s transition program began in the 2018-19 school year. The program is for students 18-22 years old that have met their academic requirements to graduate but need to continue to develop their vocational and independent living skills. Each transition plan is individually created to the strengths, interests, and vocational preferences of each young adult in the program.
