Molly Stark Elementary Donation - Chrissy B

Dear General Manager Pauquette and staff, Thank you so much for your generous donation to Molly Stark! The kindergarten, first, and second grade teachers decided to pool our money together to get some playground equipment. We wanted to bring a different activity to the playground that more than one student could participate in. We have bought a funnel ball set that will arrive in the spring, as well as some sand toys, footballs, kickballs, and balance boards. Without your help, this would not be possible! As you can tell from the pictures, many kids have benefitted already from your kindness. I will update you in the spring with our funnel ball set up. I will also document the pure excitement of the kids enjoying a new piece to the playground thanks to all of you! Happy Holidays! -Chrissy

Lundgren Subaru and the Bennington Dog Park - Susan M

When word that a dog park was in the works in Bennington, one of the first businesses to step up to the plate to help make it happen, was Lundgren Subaru. How could a company that lets dogs drive Subarus, not take part in the building of a dog park? The idea was spawned in July of 2020 and by June 26, 2021 the grand opening took place. Hundreds of Bennington's dog lovers sent in donations, but it took some large players to get that fence built, add beautiful wooden benches and doggie bag dispensers. It is truly a place of beauty where a line of pine trees grow down the middle of the grassy space. It's on a hill in Willow with lovely views. It brings dog lovers and their dogs together for play, conversation and a creates a special kind of camaraderie. Lundgren Subaru donated a bench; their name appears on a thank you banner and on the sign near the entrance to the park. Cheers to Lundgren Subaru for helping this dream become a reality.

Lundgren Adopt a Classroom - Gavin M

During the month of August Lundgren Subaru of Bennington collected backpacks and all types of school supplies for our adopt a classroom project. We collect these supplies to help students who may not have access to materials they may need. We collected everything from pens and pencils, to notebooks and crayons. We were also able to collect enough different types of backpacks so everyone can find a backpack they enjoy. Throughout the month, we collected these types of supplies and more. When August ended, we packed an Outback Wilderness full of all the school supplies and dropped it off at Molly Stark Elementary. Along with a bus poster where customers and workers left notes for the teachers and children entering the school year.

Bennington Dog Park - Gavin M

Lundgren Subaru of Bennington is one of the proud sponsors/supporters of the Bennington Dog Park. This park was funded through $25,000 in private donations. This great addition to our community allows our furry friends to be free in a safe environment and make new friends. The park is self-governing, meaning users are expected to follow all rules and pick up after their dogs. The park itself is 1/2 an acre with a smaller section for elderly dogs. Shaded by pine trees and next to the volleyball court in Willow Park.

Community Commitment that Makes a Difference! - Victoria L

BROC Community Action is known for their robust food shelf, their effective weatherization program, and their housing & homelessness program. Other, fewer known programs are helping make a difference in the lives of everyday Vermonters with the help of Lundgren Subaru. For example, BROC Community Action recently assisted a veteran who did not quite meet the guidelines for fuel assistance and did not have the funds from their fixed income to purchase heating fuel to keep their home warm. BROC Community Action was able to help this individual using donations from the community and from businesses in their community, like Lundgren Subaru, to get them fuel. Many people do not realize that large corporations like Subaru directly helps their friends and neighbors who are facing a real need and are in crisis within their communities. When Subaru says they are going to Share the Love, they mean it. We have been able to help hundreds of people in Bennington County directly because of Lundgren Subaru and their Share the Love Event. BROC Community Action has programs available that can help remove barriers that seem insurmountable. Their caring staff are there for Rutland and Bennington county residents when they are facing crisis or poverty, as well as to help navigate a path forward. More information can be found on social media, online at or by calling 802.775.0878. We sincerely thank Lundgren Subaru for their commitment to helping those within their local communities.
