Heritage Subaru Catonsville Loves Fighting Cancer - Vivienne S

Heritage Subaru Catonsville “Shared the Love” with the American Cancer Society and rose to the challenges brought on by COVID-19, making an incredible impact on the fight against cancer. The Subaru dealership did an excellent job of keeping their customers and staff healthy and safe during the pandemic by observing safety protocols while delivering outstanding service. Their team spirit persevered during the 2020 Heritage Subaru Owings Mills Share the Love campaign resulting in an incredible $17,733 donation that comprised a significant part of the $52,327.61 check presented to the American Cancer Society in May. The Share the Love donation will not only help fund free cancer patient services, including free transportation to treatment and the 24/7 American Cancer Society hotline at 1-800-227-2345 that is staffed by trained cancer information specialists, but also fuel new cancer research breakthroughs and discoveries to help find new cures. Heritage Subaru Catonsville Manager Rich Hollander presented the Share the Love check to the American Cancer Society along with two other MileOne Autogroup Subaru dealers: Heritage Subaru Owings Mills and Herb Gordon Subaru that were part of this collective Share the Love gift.

Richard Hollander, General Manager, of Heritage Subaru Catonsville recently had the great opportunity to participate in an inspirational catered dinner at Hope Lodge located in Downtown Baltimore. Hope Lodge is a facility that provides free of charge housing for individuals who are currently receiving treatment for cancer. That evening Richard and several representatives from Mile One Auto Group not only provided a catered meal for the residents of Hope Lodge, but they also had the privilege to serve them their meal and then spent time with the residents as they shared stories of their journey in cancer treatment. Heritage Subaru of Catonsville is proud to be a participant of Subaru's Love Promise and special events such as this dinner for the American Cancer Society and Hope Lodge of Baltimore


Heritage Subaru Catonsville Hope Lodge Dinner - Vivienne S

The American Cancer Society’s Baltimore Hope Lodge – a free home-away-from-home for cancer patients who travel from out of town to Baltimore for cancer treatment – is very grateful for the beautiful Italian dinner hosted by Heritage Subaru of Catonsville last April 15, 2019. Staff from Heritage Subaru had a wonderful experience serving dinner for patients and caregivers at the lodge and joined them in the dining room to share food and fellowship. Friendships were forged and stories of their cancer journeys shared. The dinner was one of 12 wonderful monthly dinners hosted by members of MileOne Autogroup at Baltimore Hope Lodge during 2019. This fabulous partnership with the American Cancer Society will continue through 2020 and helps support patients through their treatment journey. The lodge has 26 guest rooms. Most patients stay with a caregiver of their choosing – a friend or family member. The lodge has a kitchen so that guests can prepare their own meals, however community groups, such as Heritage Subaru of Catonsville, come in regularly with dinners to provide nutritious food and alleviate the work of meal preparation for the lodge’s residents, most of whom stay for many weeks or even months during extensive cancer treatment. Baltimore Hope Lodge is one of 32 American Cancer Society Hope Lodges across the country.Photo (l to r): Tavon Johnson, General Sales Manager; Steve Knolle, General Manager; Rich Hollander, General Manager; Dan Matysek, Director of Operations, shown here with the Jerry Fader Day of Hope poster in the Hope Lodge lobby.

Saving the Bay While Educating the Young - richard h

Subaru of America partnered with the National Aquarium Terrapins in the Classroom Program this year in efforts to preserve aquatic life and teach children to be interested in the bay and how to care for its wildlife. Heritage Subaru Catonsville, part of the MileOne Autogroup, sponsored Evelyn Calamari’s classroom at Northfield Elementary School in Ellicott City, who has participated in the program for two years. Ms. Calamari explained that once the program concludes in April, the Terrapins will be released back to Poplar Island, which has recently been reclaimed as ‘Turtle Island. Prior to release, the Terrapins are microchipped so professionals can monitor and track them if they return to the Island. Richard Hollander, General Manager at Heritage Subaru Catonsville, visited the students during their class, where he was able to meet and learn about the diamondback terrapin, Splash, named by the students. Through Subaru’s partnership with Subaru Loves Learning, Hollander was also able to present the students with three different STEM books (Tiny Creatures, Beauty and the Beak, and The Octopus Scientist) that will be disbursed among the school for other students to enjoy as well. The students were eager to share their learnings and observations of Splash. Check out the fun facts:- Diamondback terrapins prefer brackish water, which is warm water that is neither fresh nor salty.- Splash graduated from eating pellets to fish, which must have contributed to him doubling his size since September (4 cm long to 8 cm long)!- In order to be released, Splash has to learn how to hunt to ensure he will be able to survive on his own once released. He also has to “Bask” at a warmer location in his tank so that his shell does not rot.- To keep his shell from rotting, terrapins need to bask in a warmer location in the tank. Heritage Subaru Catonsville is a proud sponsor of the National Aquarium Terrapins in the Classroom Program and enjoyed experiencing the students’ interaction with the terrapin and cannot wait to hear more updates about Splash!

Heritage Subaru Catonsville Loves Learning - Kevin E

Heritage Subaru Catonsville loves Learning. Learning in the classroom can be fun! Ask Kevin Engle our general sales manager. On behalf of the retailer, he had the pleasure of donating hundreds of books to the Rosemont Elementary School. Kevin had the pleasure of making sure that children from kindergarten through the third-grade hand an opportunity to wrap their hands, eyes, and minds around the magic of printed word. It was amazing to see the excitement that books can still bring to children today. Heritage Subaru Catonsville looks forward to the continuing partnership with Subaru of America in future events like this.

Blue Beauty - Kristen P

I grew up driving around a Pontiac Grandam and a Ford Taurus. Both were ok to drive but never really reliable or a fit for me. The first car I purchased was a Nissan Sentra and I was more then happy driving her around. She got great gas mileage and got me wherever I needed to go. But the minute I laid eyes on the first Subaru Crosstrek it was love at first sight. I knew that minute that one day I was going to own one. And finally ten years later I’ve finally got my dream vehicle. I loved my Nissan but I really really really love my Subaru Crosstrek! My dealership was fantastic and really takes the best care of their customers. They kept me fully up to date on the arrival of my vehicle and had us in and out after purchase. Between my husband and myself we have purchased 3 Subaru’s from them. I simply cannot say enough about my Crosstrek. She is such a beautiful and a fun vehicle to drive. She is reliable and more efficient than I could have ever imagined. Never in my life have I felt so at home behind the wheel of any vehicle then I have my Crosstrek. Every time I climb inside my Crosstrek I know that I have not just the great gas mileage but the perfect space and the greatest safety to offer for me and my future family. Each time I look at my Crosstrek it makes me smile and proud to own her and all the more sure that I made the right decision in purchasing her. I'm one of those crazy owners that has to turn around and take that last minute peek at their beauty before getting to their final destination. If that’s not Love I don’t know what is. But then again she is a Subaru ;).
