Carr Subaru Beaverton honored by Providence
Providence's Center for Medically Fragile Children has honored Carr Subaru Beaverton for its ongoing support by naming a resident room for the dealership.
In early April, Carr Subaru Beaverton and Subaru of America donated $124,000 to support the hospital's most fragile patients — bringing their total contibutions generated by the annual Share the Love fundraising drive to more than $400,000 since 2015.
"We deeply appreciate the support of Carr Subaru and Subaru of America," said JoAnn Vance, executive director of Providence Children's Developmental Health. According to Vance, the room will stand as a symbol of Carr Subaru's commitment to the Providence mission of caring for our most vulnerable populations.
Subaru's most recent "Share the Love" drive was held during the winter months, with Subaru donating $250 to certain charities each time a new vehicle was purchased or leased. One of the charities offered by Carr Subaru was the Bill's Kids Fund at Providence's Center for Medically Fragile Children, which is named in honor of Providence Child Center Foundation board member Bill Schonely, who also is known as Mr. Rip City for his three decades as the play-by-play announcer for the Portland Trail Blazers.
"Carr Subaru is a proud sponsor and supporter of this phenomenal organization and the important work that they do for our community," said Michael Parks, digital marketing director for Carr Auto Group. "The commitment and dedication that the team at Providence provides to these fragile children and their families is exceptional."
The Carr Subaru Beaverton donation represents one of the largest contribution in the country made by Subaru to a local charity through the Share the Love event.
