Make-A-Wish® and Subaru of Wakefield Host Surprise Wish Celebration for 10-year-old Anatole - Peg W

This past December, Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island and Subaru of Wakefield surprised 10-year-old Anatole Pham Nguyen of Newton, MA with a celebration of her upcoming wish trip to go to Hawaii. Anatole recently completed treatment for a brain tumor and her wish was inspired by her love of beaches, sea creatures, and conservation. She aspires to be a marine biologist and hopes to see fish, turtles, and lava on her trip. Cecile Pham, Anatole’s mother, describes how Anatole’s wish has impacted her. “I really don't think Anatole realized how amazing and brave she was to undergo such a long medical treatment process. Make-A-Wish celebrating her made her realize that the journey she just accomplished was hard and she is amazing for going through it with such positivity,” she said. A child’s wish can be a key component in helping them get through their treatment and it serves as a celebration of the child’s perseverance through navigating the difficult treatment process, as Anatole’s mom discusses. Subaru of Wakefield hosted the Hawaiian-themed wish celebration for Anatole in their showroom as part of their ongoing Subaru Share the Love campaign. The party included all of Anatole’s favorites: tropical décor, Polynesian food, and a treasure hunt, which led to different activities, including face painting and signing a beach towel for Anatole. She even got a visit from Santa! This is Subaru of Wakefield’s sixth year partnering with Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island. The dealership and its customers have contributed over $215K to support local wish children over the past five years. Sal Barbagallo, Managing Partner and General Manager of Subaru of Wakefield said, “Of all the charities that Subaru of Wakefield and I support, Make-A-Wish is my favorite. It’s a joy to put smiles on the faces of an entire family and to provide them the opportunity to take a well-deserved break from it all.” Nationally, since 2011, Subaru has raised over $29 million in donations in support of Make-A-Wish through the campaign. Sean Holleran, CEO of Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island, emphasized his gratitude for the collaboration that makes every wish possible. “Every wish we grant involves a community of individuals and businesses, coming together to make the seemingly impossible possible and to bring joy and hope to children and families who are on difficult journeys. We’re so thankful for this great show of support for Anatole and for Subaru’s phenomenal generosity toward our mission through the Share the Love event and all year long,” he said. Through supporters like Subaru of Wakefield, Make-A-Wish can continue its mission of granting life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

Subaru Loves Pets October 2022 - Joanne W

We at Forever Home Rescue New England thank Subaru of Wakefield for sponsoring our rescue during their October Subaru Loves Pets month. Our Love Promise story is of a little dog named January, who was found as a stray in Tennessee. She had extensive hair loss over her body so when you pet her, she is just all skin. This made her unappealing to many prospective applicants, who preferred a soft, fluffy dog. January is sweet as can be though. She was lucky enough to find a prospective adopter, but that adopter’s cat got ill so she had to put off adopting a dog. The adopter remained interested in January and requested that we run some labs on her to be sure she was healthy. January’s labs showed mild kidney impairment, which meant that she would need to be on a kidney protection type diet for the rest of her life and also that she would be even more difficult to find a home for. When the prospective adopter heard about her kidney problem, she immediately decided that she would adopt and care for her (the cat had improved by now.) With the donations that we receive from Subaru during this month, we are able to help dogs like January, who needed extra bloodwork and special food. January is one lucky little girl to have found someone to adopt her with her two issues and very lucky that Subaru provides us support to help her.

Big Thank you to Justin Grant and Subaru of Wakefield. - Linda G

I just wanted to write you a quick note to thank you for your honesty, dedication and for going above and beyond while selling me my first ever Subaru last week. (Subie Sue as she is called.) It was the easiest transaction and I could not have asked for a more patient and kind sales person (Justin Grant.) He knew exactly what I was looking for, did not try and sell me more than I could afford and handled all my questions with complete and thorough knowledge like the professional that he is. I have a Subaru dealer closer to my home, but Wakefield came highly recommended by several friends who have purchased there and pointed me in their direction. They (and Justin) did not disappoint. Again... thank you for going above and beyond. Much appreciated with all the help and the 5 star treatment I was given.

Big Thank you to Justin Grant and Subaru of Wakefield.

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.
