Subaru Loves to Help 2023

February 1st, 2023 by

As we welcome a new year, Competition Subaru of Smithtown is looking forward to another year full of incredible community events! Our #SubieCommunity and #CompetitionSubaruFamily are full of the most amazing and considerate members. We take immense pride in aiding our local businesses, non-profit organizations and charities. For February, join Subaru and Competition Subaru of Smithtown as we partake in one of Subaru’s Love Promises: Subaru Loves to Help. We are so lucky to be a part of something so special!

Historically, Subaru and its retailers (like us!) aid those in need across genres and genus every single year. In 2020, Subaru and its retailers provided 50,000 warm blankets to homeless shelters. For 2021, we announce with great pleasure that the number of donations doubled. The Subaru Loves to Care initiative collected and donated 100,000 cozy blankets as well as 50,000 pairs of socks nationwide!   

Personally, Competition Subaru has worked with the Suffolk County Department of Social Services for the Subaru Loves to Care initiative during the year of 2020. During November of 2021, Competition Subaru teamed up with the Pax Christi Hospitality Center through Hope House Ministries. From everyone at Competition Subaru of Smithtown, we are so excited to begin working with this Long Island emergency center again for February of 2023!

What is the Pax Christi Hospitality Center?

The Pax Christi Hospitality Center is one of the various campaigns and housing services being offered by the Hope House Ministries non-profit organization. The Pax Christi Hospitality Center has been helping Long Islanders for over 40 years and is a compassionate, temporary residence. This 25-bed emergency center is specifically for men over 16 who are struggling with homelessness. These civilians will find solace, safety, food and shelter, and aid in their crises. The Pax Christi Hospitality Center also offers services, advocacy and networking. This emergency shelter can handle crisis situations such as: 

  • Homelessness
  • Addiction
  • Juvenile Delinquency
  • High School Dropouts
  • Teen Pregnancy
  • Evictions
  • Domestic Violence
  • Sexual Abuse

Both Hope House Ministries and the Pax Christi Hospitality Center offer additional services for those in need. Such services include:

  • Case Management
  • Drug and Alcohol Counseling
  • Mental Health Counseling
  • Linkages to Benefits and Resources in the Community

How can you help? 

Last year, Competition Subaru of Smithtown collected toiletries for the Pax Christi Hospitality Center. These products made a substantially positive impact throughout the emergency center for its residents. For the year of 2023, Competition Subaru of Smithtown is humbly accepting:

  • Socks
  • Blankets
  • Toiletries 

We appreciate and thank all of those who are able to join us in the #SubaruLovestoHelp promise this year! We are so excited to create an even bigger impact with even more donations! If donations are not in the realm of possibility, please feel no pressure. We are inexpressibly grateful for any consideration, time, or products that our #CompetitionSubaruFamily brings to our collections! Thank you again to those who have donated in the past and/or plan to in the future. Competition Subaru of Smithtown is looking forward to a fruitful February together!
