Caroline's Miracle Foundation: Peace, Kindness, Smiles

Laura Lee Wayland, part of the seventh generation of the Reynolds family presented her first NADA Ambassador Grant of $2,000 to Caroline's Miracle Foundation this past fall. This non-profit organization created in honor of Caroline O'Brien brings smiles to children and their families facing battles with brain tumors. Mrs. O'Brien works diligently to locate and assist families with whatever is needed or wanted to put a smile on their children's face, as they battle childhood cancer. Mrs. O'Brien commented that the ray of light from above that day was Caroline smiling down on us. If you are looking for a caring cause to assist financially or with your gift of time please call the foundation at 860-434-2246 or miracles@CarolinesMiracleFoundation.org.

Galloping with High Hopes

Last November Reynolds' Garage and Marine Inc. partnered with High Hopes in a new way to Share the Love. High Hopes was celebrating five years of their successful holiday market that showcases handmade horse gift items, family entertainment and hayrides. To celebrate five years and to raise additional funds, they offered raffle prizes, the grand prize being a Subaru Crosstrek from Reynolds' Subaru. The event was extremely successful for High Hopes, the Shoreline Soup Kitchen and for the Subaru Crosstrek winner Chip Dahlke. The Reynolds family and staff of Reynolds' Subaru is proud to support local charities in our backyard and will keep sharing the love with High Hopes in 2016.

Subaru, the Innovator of a Cleaner Environment

In May 2016 Subaru of America will be celebrating its eleventh year of being a zero-landfill establishment. Why is this important? Our environment has become heavily polluted by landfills, which are areas that hold nearly 220 MILLION tons of garbage yearly in the United States. This garbage is then layered and buried deep underground which is impacting our environment by: producing green-house gasses such as Methane which contaminates the air, & the waste that contaminates soil and groundwater (Live Life Green, 2009).

Subaru of America located in Indiana, USA is an innovator to many companies in regards to up keeping a clean environment by Reducing, Recycling, Reusing with minimal hazardous waste.  As well, as it's the only plant in the U.S. backed by the National Wildlife Federation that designated a Backyard Wildlife Habitat. "The 800 acre plot is home to a variety of wildlife such as deer, bald eagles, blue heron, coyotes and more" (Markham,2015)  Just another way Subaru has impacted our environment in a positive way. We at Reynolds' encourage everyone to take the initiative to reduce, recycle, reuse and be cautious about just throwing away garbage.
