Thank you Dwayne Lanes Skagit Subaru - Carol B

Deception Pass State Park And the Deception Pass Park Foundation are so grateful to Dwayne Lanes Skagit Subaru for both their financial support and volunteer participation . For the past several years the main entrance to Deception Pass State Park has been pretty worn and tired looking with plants that are either dead or way past their prime . Celebrating 100 years as a State Park this was not a very fitting entry for one of Washington’s most beautiful parks . In honor of Earth Day and with funding from Dwayne Lanes Skagit Subaru and their hardworking volunteer team, the Deception Pass Park Foundation was able to restore the area to what I’m sure will grow into a beautiful and fitting entry .

Subaru invests in Skagit Valley youth - Kat L

Subaru and Dwayne Lane's Skagit Subaru selected the Skagit Valley Family YMCA's Oasis Teen Shelter as their local charity for the Share the Love campaign this winter. YMCA Oasis supports at-risk youth and youth experiencing homelessness ages 13-17, providing overnight shelter and wrap-around services in the form of case management, educational and vocational support, and immediate clothing, meals, showers and other assistance. This 9-bed shelter program is the only temporary housing option for teens in Skagit County and for a 30+ mile radius, and the program relies greatly on community donations and grants each year. The generous gift of $17,400.00 raised by Dwayne Lane's Skagit Subaru provides the flexible funding the program needs to keep our doors open every night of the year. Funds will go back into supporting youth by covering meals, activity supplies, and unexpected costs like emergent transportation. YMCA Oasis is also striving to reach a full 24/7 operating schedule by summer 2022. This donation provides a big leap forward in reaching this goal by ensuring the Y is able to cover the anticipated costs of expanding the Oasis Teen Shelter! "We are honored to have been selected as a beneficiary of Subaru's Share the Love event this year, and we loved working with Sheila, Bart and the whole Dwayne Lane's Skagit Subaru team. Their investment today makes a real difference in the lives of young people tomorrow!"

BIG Thanks to Dwayne Lane's Skagit Subaru!! - Brad T

All of us at Skagit Valley College and SVC Foundation are so grateful to Dwayne Lane’s Skagit Subaru for their generous support of Skagit Valley College’s Food Pantry. In 2018, the Associated Students and Phi Theta Kappa groups at SVC recognized food insecurity among our students was a growing need. These groups together operated the Food Pantry as an annual project. As demand for the Food Pantry has grown over the years, the Student Life department has since taken over operations with support from the Associated Students. Thanks to the support of Dwayne Lane’s Skagit Subaru, our Food Pantry is now well-stocked. Thank you Dwayne Lane’s for your generous support for SVC students and for all you do throughout our community!

BIG Thanks to Dwayne Lane's Skagit Subaru!!

Dwayne Lane's Skagit Subaru Support Homeless Pets! - Sarah C

The NOAH Center is grateful for the support Dwane Lane's Skagit Subaru shows us through event sponsorships, Subaru Loves Pet's Adoption Events, and more! This year, DL Skagit Subaru has been a powerful partner to our organization, supporting our important work of saving at-risk pets from euthanasia. Our Subaru Loves Pet's Adoption Event this year was a success, finding homes for numerous "under-dog" pets who, without The NOAH Center and the support of businesses like Dwayne Lane's Skagit Subaru, would have otherwise faced an entirely different fate.

Supporting Foster Families - Holland W

Youthnet, located in Mount Vernon, is a non-profit foster care agency supporting children, youth, and families in the Skagit Valley and beyond. For the 4th year in a row, Dwayne Lane's stepped up to help Youthnet support families and youth in our community. Dwayne Lane's partnered with Youthnet to donate turkey dinners with all of the trimmings to our foster care families. It was a great joy to be able to deliver these meals to our foster families. We are so appreciative of all that Dwayne Lane's does to support our community!

Skagit Subaru Loves Friendship House - Jen H

With the incredible support of Dwayne Lanes Skagit Subaru, Skagit Friendship House was able to put together an awesome livestream venue of our annual benefit auction, fashion show fundraiser. Last year, we were not able to meet in person and this year, we learned at nearly the last moment that the same would ring true. Eager to find a way to present our auction and fashion show to the community we were able to team up with a production studio and made the entire program go live stream...the bidding platform and studio costs were higher than the usual night out in Skagit for a gala event and the support from our friends at Skagit Subaru and the Dwayne Lanes team, helped make it all come together. Recent circumstances have given us opportunities to learn new ways to achieve goals together as a community. One thing we know for sure at the Skagit Friendship House, that doesn't seem to change in a world of constant newness, is that Dwayne Lanes is all in for it's communities. Thank you for helping us make this show and fundraiser possible in 2021. We were able to raise over $27,000 through the auction and sponsorship support. The impact of your generosity is seen daily in the community! The Friendship House

Dwayne Lane Subaru Partnership = Mission Success! - Ranger K

The Mission Statement of our all-volunteer 501-c3, Rick Epting Foundation for the Arts (REFA), is "Enhancing the quality of life in Skagit County and surrounding areas through the arts." When our team sought to do just that by bringing the first-ever Art CARnival to Skagit County, we turned to Dwayne Lane Subaru (DLS) to inquire about using their location to hold the event. Although the company's marketing and public relations director, Sheila Countryman-Bean, hadn't ever heard of art cars before our call, she professionally investigated the info and photos we sent her, in addition to confirming the professionalism and past projects REFA had undertaken. Once she knew the details, Sheila was, as she said, "All in!" DLS went so far as to build their own Subaru art car, Subie Love, so it could be the 'host art car' for our event. Over its 15 years of existence, REFA has partnered with a variety of local businesses in our mission to increase the accessibility and amount of art in our area. However, none have surpassed the professionalism and ease of working with the folks at Dwayne Lane Subaru. In these times of corporate takeovers and cookie cutter businesses, it was great to find an organization with hometown values and a willingness to give back to the local community. I have no doubt that those who purchase their vehicles from DLS will encounter the exact same type of quality customer care and support for what is one of the premier vehicle brands in America, Subaru.

Dwayne Lane's put on such a fun photo shoot for the Subaru Loves Pets! I got to take my Golden Gryff to the store and get professional photos taken! Donations went to NOAH, which has always been a great animal protection organization within our community. The photo's turned out amazing and Gryff got his very own Subaru Toy, which he proceeded to take with him everywhere. Amazing Staff. Fun Event. Great Cause. Fantastic Results!
