Adventure Is For Everyone! - Shep R

Hyman Bros Subaru supports the community, and we are fortunate enough to be part of that support system. Beyond Boundaries provides outdoor adventures to individuals with disabilities, at risk youth, substance recovery programs, and veterans. As you can imagine, our events are not cheap, which is one of the reasons a lot of our participants don't partake in them in the first place. We do a lot of fundraising to offset the cost of our events so that EVERYONE can have these opportunities. Hyman Bro knows the importance of these opportunities as well as the positive impact of brining the community together and seeing someone for their ability rather than disability. They believe is so much that for the 3rd year in a row, they were one of our top sponsors for our largest fundraiser called the RVA RIMBY Festival. RIMBY stands for Right In My Back Yard, and that's where Hyman Bros is, in our backyard. They support the community and we couldn't be happier having a community partner like them! Thank you to the entire HBS family!!

A Home for Father Christmas - Lauren D

Thank you Hyman Bros. Subaru for choosing Richmond Animal League for your Share the Love initiative again, granting RAL a lifesaving gift of $17,856. With your support in 2020, 1,329 homeless pets were transferred into Richmond Animal League’s care and 1,376 pets were adopted out into loving homes that same year. We are beyond thankful to Hyman Brothers Subaru for their continued love and support.Most recently in 2021, Hyman Bros. Subaru sponsored an adoption event, allowing RAL to lower adoption fees to $10 from October 28 – October 31. During this time, 30 homeless pets found the families they had been waiting for. One of the pets adopted was a senior cat named Father Christmas. Father Christmas came to RAL about 8 months prior and arrived with a matted coat and stomatitis, a severe form of oral inflammation. Father Christmas’ case was so bad that he wasn’t eating due to pain (resulting in weight loss) and was also unable to groom himself, thus causing his matted fur. With support from amazing groups like Hyman Bros. Subaru, Father Christmas was able to receive medical care, a personalized treatment plan, and the time he needed to transform into the loving, affectionate cat he was always meant to be. Father Christmas was officially adopted during the Subaru adoption event on October 30th, 2021.Thank you Hyman Bros. Subaru on behalf of Father Christmas and the countless pets just like him who receive second chances each and every day because of YOU!

Helping The Homeless - James D

Years ago I was visiting with some friends, after leaving their home, I decided to stop on the streets to visit some folks...I pulled through some of the usual parking lots where folks were normally sleeping and found no one. I started heading home around 10pm, and from what I was told, folks started showing up in that same parking lot around midnight. On that night, just a few hours after I left, a man would go to sleep and never wake up, he died from hypothermia. There were others around him, that didn’t know what to do from what I am told. A heavier blanket, a sleeping mat, or a piece of cardboard could have prevented his death. The concrete slab he was sleeping on drained his body core temperature, concrete is very unforgiving. A similar situation could have occurred last night, the person in the photo was shivering out of control and had just gotten out of the hospital the day before. I was able to help the man and many others with a blankets donated by Hyman Bros. Subaru. While most of us are not in a position to help thousands, hundreds, or even dozens of people, we are all in a position where we can help at least ONE.....

Heart Your Kidneys and Heart Your Subaru - Dana B

Fueled by passion and urgency, the National Kidney Foundation is a lifeline for all people affected by kidney disease. In October 2019 Hyman Bros. Subaru partnered with the National Kidney Foundation Serving Virginia for the Central Virginia Kidney Walk. The Kidney Walk is a fun, inspiring community fundraiser that calls attention to the prevention of kidney disease and the need for organ donation in the Virginia. It's also an opportunity for patients, family, friends and businesses like Hyman Bros. Subaru to come together. In March of 2020 Hyman Bros. partnered with us to honor those who have been outstanding advocates in the fight against kidney disease in Virginia for the 2020 NKF Honors Awards. Hyman Bros. Subaru continues to remain dedicated in the fight against kidney disease. They not only want you to love your Subaru, they want you to show your kidneys some love through preventative care. When you “heart” your kidneys, you’re taking steps to make sure that they are doing well.

Opal: Today Was A Good Day - Kaicee R

Yesterday Miss Opal, one of our longest term resident dogs, finally found her forever home. RAL Adoption Coordinator, Isabelle, wrote this post about the special day. With her permission to share, here is Opal’s story and a reminder that it takes a village ❤️ “Today was a hard day. Today was a special day. Today was a good day. One of those days where you seem to get nothing done but also do all the things. The first 3 pictures are Opal’s intake pictures from Henrico Animal Control to RAL on March 2nd. A mostly hairless, overbred, bloated and petrified senior lady with infections galore and tracheal damage resulting in a perpetual growl, mistaken at first as aggression. Stranger danger and fear reactivity. HIVES, man! Welcome to RAL, Miss Opal. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. The last video is from today, thirty minutes before she happily hopped into the back of her new mom’s car and stole a slice of pizza, headed for home. Look at that body language. Her trust, built upon 3 months in foster care with a family who had no idea what they were getting into but did it anyway, with no timeframe and no guarantees. A shiny, sleek coat. A lean, muscular frame. Clean ears and a wagging tail. Comfortable and confident in her own skin. A homeless animal, then foster dog, now owned pet. A companion. Welcome to Forever, Miss Opal. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. My coworkers save lives. Our fosters save lives. Our volunteers save lives. Our animal control officers save lives. Our donors save lives. Our adopters save lives. I am so deeply proud of every one of us who make miracles happen for the most downtrodden, the most deserving, every single day. I am so deeply proud of these animals who dare to trust us. Y’all are my HEROES. I MEAN IT.” Hands down, our community and every single person who comes together to help pets like Opal get a second chance is absolutely incredible. Have the very best life Opal girl! You deserve it! 😍

Inclusion and Adventure - Shep R

This year has been challenging for so many reasons. We are Beyond Boundaries, a non profit that provides outdoor adventure and environmental education opportunities to individuals with disabilities, at risk youth, substance recovery programs, and veterans. We work hard at building our community stronger through inclusion, providing a space to see someone for their ability rather than their disability. One of the biggest ways we can do this is fundraising. Cutting the participant's cost is extremely important as most of our groups have a very fixed income and/or spend a lot of money on essential needs like medical costs and equipment. Our largest fundraiser, the RVA RIMBY Festival, allows us to provide so many of our annual programs. Hyman Bros. Subaru has been a sponsor of this event two years in a row, and this year, even when we had to do move it to a virtual platform, they still reached out asking how they can help us out! Having community support like this is what it's all about. We couldn't do what we do without businesses like them. RIMBY stands for Right In My Back Yard, and that's exactly where they are. It shows that they love their community, and even during such challenging times, are eager to help out. We can't thank them enough!

Thank You from Richmond Animal League! - Kaicee R

Thank you to Hyman Bros. Subaru for supporting Richmond Animal League through the 2018 Subaru Share the Love Event for the 5th year. RAL received a life-saving donation of $17,216 which will provide hope, help, and homes for over 2,000 homeless dogs and cats. To date, RAL has received an astounding $67,853.63. Hyman Bros. Subaru’s incredibly generous and critical donation will directly save the lives of animals in need. Animals like Stitch and Stella, two puppies under 8 weeks old who arrived at RAL with mange. They required medication, medicated baths, a safe space to heal, and lots of love. Or Henrick, a senior cat who has received life-saving medical care at RAL, including an eyelid surgery to correct a condition that irritates and scratches his corneas, a visit to a veterinary dermatologist for painful skin condition and chronic allergies, and consultations with a veterinary neurologist and medications for seizures. Or Raymundo, one of 41 dogs who tested positive for and was treated for heart worm disease in 2018. Thank you Hyman Bros. Subaru for being a life-saver! RAL receives no financial support from government agencies or national humane organizations. We rely solely on private donations, adoption fees, grants, and fundraising activities to provide our operating funds. It is only through the support of community members like Hyman Bros. Subaru that RAL is able to provide hope, help, and homes to over 2,000 homeless pets in need each year.

Thank You from Richmond Animal League!

Children's Hospital Foundation - Elaine R

For the second year in a row, Hyman Bros. Subaru supported the Annual Children’s Hospital Foundation Ball as a corporate sponsor. Each year, the Ball proceeds support an important initiative of Children’s Hospital Foundation. Children’s Hospital Foundation works in support of the region’s only full-service children’s hospital, Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU, and the more than 60,000 children it serves each year. The proceeds of this year’s Ball held on November 2, 2018, will support the Pediatric Dentistry Program at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU through the opening of a pediatric dental clinic in the Children’s Pavilion. Funds from the 2018 Ball will be used to purchase dental exam chairs, equipment, and supplies needed for the clinic to be fully functional. The need for primary dental health care in Virginia is significant, and the new pediatric dental clinic will help provide this important part of the overall health and well-being of children. Dental clinic visits are expected to have a 20% increase following the move. Thanks to the support of Hyman Bros. Subaru, more children will have the opportunity to receive regular, convenient, preventive care and learn about the value of oral health in their lives. We are grateful for the continued participation of Hyman Bros. Subaru to support our pediatric programs that improve the status of healthcare and the quality of life for children in our region.
