Wayne First Aid Squad Thanks Wayne Subaru - Stuart S

Once again it is our privilege to say thank you to the generosity of the Lesko Family and Wayne Subaru. Because of the Lesko’s donation of a new Subaru Crosstrek for the Wayne First Aid Squad’s annual raffle, the Squad was able to raise $50,000 for the purchase of equipment and Supplies. This is the third year Wayne Subaru and the Leskos have donated a car for the Squad’s raffle. Because of the current COVID-19 Pandemic, a portion of these funds was used to purchase personal protection equipment (PPE) for Squad members responding to calls. The Wayne Squad responds to thousands of emergency ambulance requests each year. As a volunteer organization, the Squad relies on donations from its friends and neighbors in Wayne Township and fund raisers to meet its day to day expenses. Because all of its members are volunteers, the squad is able to provide its services at no charge to those in need. Volunteers are always needed. Anyone interested in serving their community as a volunteer EMT can contact the Squad through its website, If you are in the market for a new or used vehicle, please consider Wayne Subaru. Their new location is 600 Route 23 North in Pompton Plains. Be sure to tell them you were sent by the Wayne First Aid Squad. Again, we would like to thank Wayne Subaru and the Lesko family for their continued support. Sincerely The Wayne Township Memorial First Aid Squad

Thank you Wayne Subaru for helping our community - Stuart S

The Wayne Township Memorial First Aid Squad would like to take this opportunity to thank Wayne Subaru and the Lesko family for their generous donation of a 2019 Subaru to the Squad for their annual Car Raffle. In this time of year when we think of giving and of those in need, Wayne Subaru’s donation contributed to both causes. Not only did this gift enable the Squad to raise $50,000 for the purchase of supplies and equipment, but it enabled the Squad to use these items to help those in need of emergency medical assistance. The Squad is a 100% volunteer organization and must rely on the generosity of its friends and neighbors in the community so it can continue to provide emergency medical services as no cost to those who need them. Once again, the Squad would like to thank the Lesko family and Wayne Subaru for their gift. The Squad wishes everyone a very happy Holiday Season and a very Healthy New Year. -Wayne Township Memorial First Aid Squad

Blanket doantion to Chilton Memorial Hospital - Michelle E

Today was the second time that Wayne Subaru donated blankets to Chilton Memorial Hospital. It was an inspiring morning as we got to meet with some the social workers and staff members, as well as, one of the oncologists. While although we were unable to meet with patients directly while we were there, Charles Moltane, the Subaru representative shared a story about why he loves this program so much. He explained that several months after last year's donation visit, he was speaking with someone who attends his church who had been fighting cancer for some time and spoke so highly about how generous and supportive Subaru is by donating these blankets. The man explained that when he received the blanket it brought him warmth and comfort through his treatment. Charles explained that this story alone reminded him how many people they are helping.

Wayne Subaru Loves to Care - Charles M

Sometimes it is the little things that can make a huge difference. For the month of June, Wayne Subaru placed cards in our showroom and service waiting area for our customers to write down words of hope to local residents who are battling the horrible effects of cancer. Many people contributed in writing uplifting and encouraging words. At the end of the month all the cards were collected and bundled together with blankets to be donated to cancer patients at the Collins Pavilion at Chilton Medical Center in Pompton Plains, NJ. On Monday, July 25th, the blankets and cards were delivered to the Collins Pavilion by Robert Lesko, III and Charles Moltane from Wayne Subaru. They were well received by the staff who immediately began distributing them to the patients. Wayne Subaru wishes all the best to those of our local community who are facing the challenges of this disease.

West Milford Animal Shelter NJ Dog Walk - Gail H

I am a proud owner of a Subaru Outback. I believe this in my 6th one. I purchased this one at Wayne Subaru in NJ. They are friendly and professional and take great care of my car. I am also a volunteer at the West Milford Animal Shelter in NJ. We are not a large shelter but we pride ourselves on the care we give our animals, the shelter's cleanliness and our adoption rate which runs between 80 to 90%. We are 100% volunteer so any money from our fundraisers go directly to the care of our animals. In October 2014, we had our annual dog walk. We give out prizes and goodie bags of which all items are donated by local businesses. I was getting my car serviced at Wayne Subaru and approached them about possibly making a donation. They called me back quickly and very enthusiastically donated 300 Frisbees to be given away to the participants. They even took the time to design them with paw prints and the Subaru logo. They were more than kind. As I mentioned we are not a large shelter so we do not have the resources for large fundraising events. Therefore all donations are appreciated. Thanks Wayne Subaru for your help and kindness toward our animals. By the way, the shelter and surrounding communities are located in the Ramapo Mountains in Northern NJ. Driving around you see many a Subaru. There are four on my block alone!
