An Adoption Story - Elyse L

Through our partnership with Hawk Subaru, we hosted an adoption event during the month of October. We brought three dogs to the trunk or treat at Hawk Subaru, and by the end of the event, Wags 2 Wishes and Hawk Subaru helped Winifred find her perfect, loving home. Thanks to Jennifer and everyone from Hawk Subaru, we were able to adopt out even more dogs to some of the other attendants at the event. Winifred is an adorable little beagle mix puppy that came to Wags 2 Wishes after being at a high volume animal control in Kentucky. Her new family fell in love when they met at Hawk Subaru and were able to adopt and take her home that same day. She loved all of her goodies that Hawk Subaru sent home with her- especially her “Chew-baru” toy. We at Wags 2 Wishes so grateful for all of the hardworking people at Hawk Subaru and the Subies of the Corn community that helped make the event a success.

Subaru Adoption Event - Dainty Meow - Daniel R

We had never been to/administered an adoption event at Subaru before and who knew it would be the first of many to come. The staff was so incredibly welcoming and accommodating. They treated us with true collaborative respect and we couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity. We were offered ample space to fully facilitate all the adoption event offered. To be welcomed back numerous times has been so heartwarming and truly showcases the commitment Hawk Subaru has to supporting the four legged friends that need our help the most. The rescue/foster/adoption space has always faced uphill challenges when attempting to secure sufficient opportunities to find forever homes for at-risk domestic animals. Subaru provided such a warm, inviting space for us and we couldn’t be more excited how our inaugural adoption event went so smoothly. We look forward to collaborating again and showing the community the good we all can do with just a bit of effort and open hearts - all with Hawk Subaru’s support! :)

The event was held in conjunction with the Subaru Ambassador’s National Make a Dogs Day, part of the Subaru Loves Pets initiative. Subies of the Corn members filled the lot with decorated Subaru vehicles and handed out candy and treats to the ghouls and goblins trick or treating. Wags 2 Wishes Animal Rescue and The Dainty Meow brought dogs and cats, all looking for a fur-ever home. The highlight of the event was seeing Winifred find her fur-ever home. Winifred is an 11-week-old hound mix puppy and will receive lots of love at her new home. Additionally, Subies of the Corn presented Wags to Wishes with a donation of $330, which was raised during the event in honor of Subaru Loves Pets. “I can’t thank Hawk Subaru enough for their support of this event”, stated Subies of the Corn co-founder Christine Hill. “Hawk Subaru is more than just a car dealership!

Hawk Subaru helps Subies of the Corn raise $3,000 to help provide meals and care for area homeless. - J Mykel H

Hawk Subaru was the Title Sponsor for the 2022 Subies of the Corn Scavenger Hunt, which was held on May 21, 2022. The event raised $3,000 for MorningStar Mission, which provides food for the hungry, clothes for the needy, and shelter for the homeless. They provide services for those in the Joliet and Will County area in Illinois. Hawk Subaru served as the host location for the start of the event, and participants “hunted” the dealership for the hidden riddle, which provided the next location in the Scavenger Hunt. Once determined, participants were led on a cruise to the next stop to begin the process of hunting for the next riddle. “Hawk Subaru has been instrumental in assisting Subies of the Corn with the Scavenger Hunt over the years, and this year was no exception”, stated J. Mykel Hill, Subaru Ambassador and Co-Founder of Subies of the Corn. “Through our partnership together, we raised $3,000 which will help provide meals and care for 1,200 people in our area. Our event wouldn’t have been so successful without their support, and we are truly grateful for how much Hawk Subaru Loves to Help!” A check for $3,000 was presented to MorningStar Mission on June 25, 2022, coinciding with the Subaru Ambassador Day of Caring. Kevin Watson, Assistant Director at MorningStar Mission, stated “Thank you, Subies of the Corn, for your generous donation to help those in need at MorningStar Mission here in Joliet, Illinois. It's really cool to see people who have a passion for their Subarus use that passion to benefit those in need. Being a "Car Guy" myself, I am inspired and challenged to use my love of cars to benefit the less fortunate and accomplish a greater good.” In addition to their Title Sponsorship of the event, Hawk Subaru also provided Subaru-themed raffle and silent auction items to help raise additional dollars for the charity. Their donation of a Giant Four in a Row game drew a ton of attention from the participants and generated some pretty stiff competition competing for the item in the silent auction. Thank you Hawk Subaru, for your support of the 2022 Subies of the Corn Scavenger Hunt and we look forward to Sharing the Love of Helping Others in future events!

Within the 13-county service area of Northern Illinois Food Bank, one in 12 residents — and one in nine children — experiences food insecurity.
