Above and beyond - Eric C

I have the Subaru VIP pricing and spent 2 weeks visiting and speaking with dealers who would accept the program. I pretty much had given up because of the dealer games until I stumbled into Subaru of Wakefield. After walking up to the reception area John had walked by and asked me if I needed help. I had mentioned to him that I had VIP pricing and I was ready to buy a car today. He said no problem and immediately listened to my needs. We were all set to sign and then and then he informed me of the since I lived in NH that I had to come back with the registration paperwork. I was about to walk away from the deal because I didn’t have time to register the car and then go back to pick it up. That is when he went to a manger and they came up with idea that they could meet me at my town hall and deliver the car to me. I was blown away that they offered to do this for me. John and the entire staff just gained a customer for life.

Supporting the Make-A-Wish Mission - Heather D

We’re honored to be celebrating our fifth year as Hometown Charity of Subaru of Wakefield for the Subaru Share the Love Event! The dealership staff and its customers have inspired us with their outstanding generosity and commitment to help grant wishes for children with critical illnesses. Over the past four years, the $177,775 raised through the campaign has enabled 18 local children to feel greater hope and renewed joy and resiliency in the face of life-threatening medical conditions. From wishes to meet favorite celebrities, to have room redecorations, musical instruments, puppies, camper trailers, gaming computers, playsets, and more, we’re so grateful to the Subaru of Wakefield team and its customers for truly helping to transform children’s lives through the power of a wish!

Ziggy! - Joanne W

Ziggy is a 12 yr old long haired chihuahua that we rescued from Boston Animal Control. He was found stray and paralyzed. We were able to do an MRI and found that he had no structural reason for his paralysis so he is now getting Physical Therapy and has a wheelchair to get around in. We could not cover those sorts of expenses for a dog without the help of Subaru of Wakefield. They are donating $3100 ($100 for each of our first 31 adoptions during the month of October 2021)! We are so very grateful. And guess what? Ziggy's family owns a Subaru Ascent! Lucky Ziggy!

Samy the K9 Police Dog - Samy S

Sal Barbagallo and Subaru of Wakefield donated K9 Samy, an English Labrador. Samy will serve the community in a unique capacity: as a comfort dog. Her specialized training will allow her to help reduce anxiety in adults and children involved in domestic violence situations, mental health crises, and other traumatic events. Officer Kelley Tobyne, a School Resource Officer, was selected to be Samy’s handler. Tobyne’s established connection to Wakefield students provides the opportunity for them to have access to the dog when the need arises. Samy is named in honor of Wakefield’s Becca Sampson, a friend of the department, who passed away from leukemia in 2018 at age 13.
