Community Involvement

"Share The Love 2014"
For every car we sold during Subaru's Share The Love Event, we donated $250 to 
The Monongalia County Child Advocacy Center


In the 2014 season of Share The Love, John Howard Subaru raised donations for the Monongalia County Child Advocacy Center as their local charity of choice. Each year in Monongalia County over 1,000 reports of abuse are made to Child Protective Services regarding child abuse and neglect. The Monongalia County Child Advocacy Center is a nonprofit agency founded in 2005 that advocates for these young victims of abuse and neglect. By providing a child-friendly, safe environment where children and their families can be interviewed, receive treatment and education, children and families can begin to heal. In addition to the fund-raising, we also sponsored a "Fill the Forester" event to collect teddy bears and other stuffed animals for the kids at MCCAC. The John Howard community and it's employees participated in a big way, collecting enough of the furry friends to overstuff this 2015 Forester in our showroom.  To top it off all the employees here at John Howard donated over $600 to the MCCAC in honor of Randy and Rachael, as a Christmas gift from all of us to a very worthy cause.
