LG Subaru Loves Pets: Teddy and Theo - Debra and Jacob F

May 2022: From cats and dogs to fish and frogs, Lester Glenn Subaru customers and employees share a love of the animals and pets that have truly become a part of our families. That’s why this May, when Kathy Ottmer - one of our Service Advisors - adopted her rescue pup Teddy, she brought him to meet her fellow animal lovers and longtime friends, Debra and Jacob Fernandez…who met Kathy 15 years ago when they brought their Subaru in for service! Debra and Jacob decided quickly that it was time for them to add to their family as well, and made the decision to adopt Teddy’s brother, Theo. The pups were reunited at Lester Glenn Subaru for our sweetest Subaru Love Story yet!

LG Subaru Loves the Earth: Cedar Run Wildlife - Emily W

April 2022: Lester Glenn Subaru was proud to support Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge, a non-profit organization based in New Jersey. This organization is a non-profit dedicated to the preservation of New Jersey’s habitats and wildlife through conservation, education and rehabilitation. Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge sits on 171 wooded acres on the edge of the New Jersey pinelands. Cedar Run includes the Woodford Nature Center, an outdoor Wildlife Housing Area with nearly 60 native residents, and a Wildlife Rehabilitation Hospital. The overall mission of Cedar Run is to serve as a community resource on the important of enhancing and protecting healthy ecosystems for all. To that end, Cedar Run engages in: ecologically based land management; the operation of a Federally and NJ State Licensed hospital facility that cares for more than 6,000 displaced, injured, or orphaned native wildlife each year; the education of over 20,000 students annually through our various on-side and outreach programs; and serves as an active resource to the great New Jersey community on all habitat and wildlife related issues and questions. Throughout the month Lester Glenn customers and employees teamed up to collect donations for the education program, office, and wildlife hospital and thanks to everyone’s efforts, we were able to fill a Subaru Forester with our collected items. Cedar Run was also kind enough to share day passes to their refuge that Lester Glenn was able to share with our customers, and one generous donator even one a Family Membership for one year to Cedar Run! Donations we delivered to the organization on Sunday, May 8th in Medford, New Jersey by Emily Wiggins, Customer Care Manager, and her family. We are excited to work together with Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge in the future!

LG Subaru Loves the Earth: Memorial Garden CleanUp - Emily W

April 2022: With Earth Day approaching, Lester Glenn Subaru was looking for a special way to give back to our community and planet. We were honored to be invited to assist with the clean up of the Children's Memorial Garden located in our home town of Toms River, New Jersey. The Children's Memorial Garden is a community effort built in memory of all the children of Ocean County taken too soon from this world. Stones are engraved throughout the garden with the names of loved ones lost, statues placed in memory of those grieving, and wind chimes fill the air. Lester Glenn Employees worked together to prepare the flower beds, shaped as dragonflies and butterflies, for the upcoming planting of 3,000 flower buds to welcome all back to the garden this spring. Employees came with their children and families to assist with the cleanup and together we enjoyed the beautiful sunshine as we gave back to our planet. A very special thank you to Mr. Bruce Jones for sharing this sacred place with us, we look forward to working together again in the future.

LG Subaru Loves Animals: Mama the Mouse - Emily W

March 2022: Lester Glenn and Subaru share a commitment and passion to help all those around us, whether big or small, and this month we found one of the smallest creatures who needed our help. When a returning customer brought their vehicle in for maintenance, Service Technician Andrew Nuzzo noticed a moving air box during the vehicle inspection. He carefully moved the front of the air box, replacing it with a thin box that just fit, and scooped what seemed to be a nest into the box…and quickly after, a field mouse and her four pups followed! Faced with the difficult decision of what to do with a vulnerable field mouse in a high traffic area, Service Advisor Kathy Ottmer and Customer Care Representative Jesse Iaquilino worked together to make a temporary home for the mice, with nesting, water, and even peanuts from Kathy’s lunch! At the end of the day, Jesse – a mother herself! – decided to add ‘Mama’ the mouse and her pups to her own family, and we have another happy ending to a Subaru story.

LG Subaru: Letters of Support to Armed Forces - Lester G

February 2022: Lester Glenn Subaru was proud to support Operation Yellow Ribbon, an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in New Jersey. This organization shows support for our United States Military Forces serving overseas through the collection of supplies as well as coordinating, facilitating, and promoting welcome home events for local veterans. Throughout the month Lester Glenn employees reached out to local schools to collect artwork, cards, and letters of appreciation, gratitude, and support to send along with our donated supplies through Operation Yellow Ribbon. Nicole Damiano, service advisor, sparked the idea by reaching out to her children’s school, leading to several employees doing the same...all of whom were happy to have their students participate! All in all, over 120 pieces of art, cards, and letters were collected in support of our active military members. Our hearts were touched to see the hard work these students put into their contributions, and we look forward to this number growing throughout the years! * Special thanks to Bayville Elementary School, The Goddard School of Route 70 in Toms River, and various other participating schools for joining in our support of Operation Yellow Ribbon.
