Conley Subaru Supports the Fort Hamer Bridge Run - Ruthie S

The team at Conley Subaru was a great partner in presenting the 2020 Fort Hamer Bridge Run, in Parrish Florida. In 2020 the race organizers were challenged to find a way to continue the tradition of a live race in the heart of the Manatee County community, and give runners a safe opportunity to race live. Featuring a socially distanced staggered start, runners and walkers completed their 5K over the Fort Hamer Bridge, and celebrated their finish with the Conley Subaru team at the finish line. With the support from Conley Subaru all runners were provided a face buff, adding to the safety precautions taken by race organizers. Proceeds from the race benefitted 3 area organizations; Manatee County Youth Rowing, The Parrish Civic Association and the Parrish Community High School Athletic Boosters. These organizations worked together to produce the race and used the opportunity to promote local small business, by awarding runners gift cards to small business in their community. When charitable organizations, small businesses and runners work together, everyone wins. The Fort Hamer Bridge is a bridge to the heart of the community, and the race team is thankful for Conley Subaru's support in bringing the race to life in 2020.

Zoe Thanks Conley Subaru and Subaru Loves Pets - Cynthia J

October was Subaru Loves Pets month. This year Subaru was focused on getting Underdogs into forever homes. We are so thankful that Conley Subaru sponsored our shelter for this event. During the month, they donated $100 to the Humane Society at Lakewood Ranch for every pet adopted, up to 31 adoptions. We met that total and so appreciate The Conley Family for all they continue to do for us. Of the adoptions, 5 senior dogs found forever homes. The most special was Zoe’s adoption to a wonderful family. Zoe is a 10-year old Labrador Retriever mix, that found herself in the shelter totally confused, but still full of joy and love. Because of her age she had some health and skin issues that meant she would have patches of fur that would never grow back. In came Adrienne, Amy and their little guy to specifically meet Zoe. Her age and health issues didn’t stop them from falling in love with her and providing a very loving forever home! These are very special people that adopt special needs pets and provide them with amazing care. They are over the moon in love! Given the current situation with COVID, this donation could not have come at a better time. Thank You Conley Subaru for your continued support, as we strive to save dogs and cats in our local community!

Keeping the Homeless Warm - Kelly F

Most people don't realize it, but more than 1,000 people in Manatee County are homeless. Some stay in camps and refuse assistance from various agencies who offer help. Others are ready to make positive changes in their lives and seek help at The Salvation Army. It may start by getting a free dinner, or a simple stay inside the warm shelter on a cold or rainy night. Regardless, it's a start. While many return to the streets, others enter a case managed shelter program with the hope of returning to independent, sustainable housing. Most people think of the homeless as men, but The Salvation Army also has separate space in the shelter for single women and families....yes families. As many as five families can come stay in the shelter while they are working hard to get back on their feet and provide a "normal" life for their families. What does this have to do with Subaru and our local Conley dealership? The Salvation Army was blessed to be the recipient of blankets to help keep our homeless warm, donated by Conley Subaru. We are so grateful to have received these blankets, especially as we approach the winter months. While Florida typically is comfortable in winter evenings, the cold fronts can plunge the temperatures down into the 40's and when that happens, the shelter gets very full....The resources for shelters are different than many other businesses - we need bedding, hygiene items, socks and underwear for those who use our services, so when I donation of blankets comes from a local business, it helps better serve those who are truly in need.

Thank You Conley Subaru - Jeff H

Cedar Hammock Fire Rescue in Bradenton, FL would like to recognize Conley Subaru for the outstanding service they have provided our fleet of staff vehicles. When our department became aware of a demolition and remodel of a portion of their facility, our Training Officer Bill Smith obtained permission to allow our firefighters to train in the building prior to demolition. This type of training is very valuable due to the real-world opportunities of forcible entry, survival tactics, and search and rescue. We appreciate Conley Subaru allowing us on the property during their business hours and for seeing the benefit to our firefighters. This type of training only strengthens our ability to serve the public and improve the safe operations of our members. The whole team at Conley took an interest in our training and we appreciate their support.

Conley Subaru Blanket Delivery to FCS - Niki M

On June 25th the Suncoast Chapter and Conley Subaru had the pleasure of delivering 80 blankets and to Florida Cancer Specialists &Research Institute in Bradenton Florida as part of the Subaru Loves To Care program. These comforting gifts were delivered by the Conley Family who have a special connection to this location themselves. Mrs. Conley, a breast cancer survivor knows those halls all too well as she too received her treatment in the same room she was now visiting her fellow fighters in. Every few minutes was a familiar face, catching up with nurses, photos with doctors and more. It was obvious that the Conley family was a staple in this community and has continuously showed their support to patients and families who are going through the battle they once fought. Mrs. Conley had a special connection with Paige, a patient at Florida Cancer Specialist who is currently batting the same cancer Mrs. Conley survived. The two exchanged information to keep in touch and so Mrs. Conley can be a resource to Paige if she ever needed someone to talk to. It became known that Mrs. Conley reaches out to patients on a regular basis to share stories of hope and remind them to keep fighting. It was clear that Paige was not the only one graced with the positive spirit of the Conley Family that day. The rest of the Conley Subaru family and staff met and spent time with all the patients in the chemo treatment room that day giving them warm blankets and brightening their spirits with light hearted conversations. This incredible act of generosity was warmly received by the Florida Cancer Specialist staff who were thrilled to distribute these comforting gifts to their patients. LLS is proud to partner with Subaru to spread hope, love and warmth to those fighting cancer, across the country and right here in the Bradenton community. Many thanks to everyone at Conley Subaru and Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute, not only for a memorable day, but for supporting LLS’s mission to cure blood cancers and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

The doctors of Eye Center, Inc. would like to thank Conley Subaru for their continued support of the Eye Center, Inc. Vision Foundation. The donation of $4692.63 through the Subaru Share the Love Event will go a long way in helping us provide eye care and glasses to underprivileged students in Manatee County. We will also be able to continue to provide glasses for the patients at Turning Points, whose mission is to provide, coordinate, and facilitate services to the homeless in Manatee County, FL. In 2018, we provided free eye exams and glasses to 156 children and 47 pairs of glasses for Turning Points. Those numbers are growing every year. We hope, with continued support, there will be no child in Manatee County in need of glasses. Thank you for helping us "raise Students' Eye-Q's!"

Conley Subaru Supports Hernando De Soto! - Alan C

The Hernando De Soto Historical Society is a community-based organization who annually celebrates the historical significance of the Spanish explorer Hernando De Soto’s landing near the mouth of the Manatee River in May 1539.The historical significance is with his 600 Conquistadors De Soto claimed possession of La Florida on behalf of the Spanish crown and later began his lengthy exploration of what now is the southeastern United States. As part of this celebration, the Society maintains the Sister City relationship with Barcarrota,Spain, De Soto’s hometown. In 1938, the U.S. Government-appointed Swanton commission determined that Shaw’s Point at the mouth of the Manatee River was the most likely spot for the Spanish explorer to have landed in Florida. One year later, the Historical Society was formed and produced its first ever De Soto Heritage Festival.Over the past 80 years, the Festival has created one of the largest annual special events in the region. The annual parade has reported attendance of 200,000, only placing it behind the Gasparilla parade held annually in Tampa. Our family’s involvement with this event goes back to our dealers’ father in law being part of the festivals crew and hosting dignitaries from De Soto’s family to the ambassador of Spain in his home. While our dealership has provided assistance in the past, several years ago, as part of our community outreach, a few years ago, we assembled a motorized parade float to support the Festival. About a month prior to this year’s parade, we experienced some major issues with our float. Quite honestly, we were not sure repairs would be made in time.This year was going to be very special as one of our longtime Subaru salesmen, Al Golabek, was retiring and really wanted to ride in the parade. With the help of many of our employees and some outside help, we were able to make Al’s wish come true. We made Al our official parade Marshall and he and many of our family of employees and some of their families either ride or walk the 2.4-mileparade route, throwing beads, candy and t shirts to the enthusiastic parade crowd. We see many of our customers and feel it’s a wonderful and fun way to support the Festival, our community and certainty an event our employees look forward to and enjoy each year. Finally, the De Soto Festival is one of many community events we are involved with and support during the year. We feel very strong about supporting our community and building relationship like our family has for the past 53 years in Manatee County, Florida. This is one of many Love Promises we make each year.
