Barkstock by Beardmore for Hands Hearts and Paws - Debbie D

Thank you for hosting Barkstock on 8/28/22 and selecting Hands Hearts and Paws to benefit. We are a non-profit rescue and function on donations. Events, such as Barkstock, help us continue to take in homeless dogs, take care of all medical needs and keep them in rescue until they find their fur-ever homes. Beardmore Subaru is the best!!!

Holiday Pawtraits at Beardmore Subaru - Kala H

Now that I realize we can share Subaru Love Promise stories, this one is long over due! I can't thank Beardmore Subaru of Bellevue Nebraska enough for hosting our annual Holiday Pawtraits photo fundraiser. As a local pet photographer, this is my favorite fundraiser to do! Everyone loves a holiday photo of their pet, so why not give them what the public what they want and raise money for a local dog rescue at the same time. Beardmore Subaru allows us to use their delivery bay for this event which works out wonderfully. Not only do they donate their space for this fundraiser, but they also donate a Subaru dog toy, (from BARK), which is always a HUGE hit with everyone, (especially the pups!). They also help advertise it as well. They always go above and beyond to help us raise money for Hands, Hearts and Paws Rescue, (a 501c3 all breed dog rescue who takes in a lot of high medical needs dogs). Beardmore has always been great to partner with for this, (and other events), and they are always giving back to their community. Thank you Beardmore Subaru! We appreciate you!

Beardmore Freedom Dog Park Barkstock Event - Kala H

I just wanted to give a shout out to Beardmore Subaru and Beardmore Freedom Dog Park of Bellevue Nebraska for their Barkstock event they held. This was such a fun event that gave back to a local rescue, (Hands, Hearts and Paws Rescue.) They invited several small businesses/vendors to have a table/booth at the event to promote their businesses, (including myself, Dogtography by Kala Howard, local pet photographer.) They had food trucks, (which also donated proceeds to the cause,) a POW/MIA memorial wall, games and raffles with prizes, as well as the vendors. All proceeds raised were donated to HHP, (which is a 501c3 all breed dog rescue in the area.) The rescue was able to attend with adoptable dogs for people to meet as well. It was so great to be a part of such a wonderful cause, that is also near and dear to my heart, (as I also foster for HHP.) Beardmore is a wonderful family owned business always giving back to the community. I'm proud to own a Subaru Forester from Beardmore knowing they are always giving back! I will continue to recommend their company to everyone!

For 20 years Beardmore Subaru has helped lead life-changing Mountain West adventures for area teens. - Ian K

Go Beyond’s extraordinary outdoor adventures bring diverse groups of young people together to facilitate self-discovery and build community through courage, compassion, development, and inclusion. A group of new peers, our 12-15 year-old Go Beyond campers come together from across our wide Nebraska and Iowa community, with a special focus on those impacted by trauma. Each year, three or more 12-camper groups of new peers connect to life-changing opportunities through Go Beyond, along with their Natural Leaders (junior counselors), professional counselors, volunteers, alumni, and families. We connect to nature and outdoor adventure in our local backyard, always encouraging families to join in as we hike Fontenelle Forest, explore our State Parks, or rock-climb at Northstar/Outward Bound. We connect to growth through our multi-year Natural Leader junior counselor progression, including supporting conservation projects across Nebraska on amazing overnight field trips along the way. We connect to science, working with agencies to save North America’s most endangered amphibian on our wetland conservation preserve, partnering each group with a scientists’ field project. And thanks to Beardmore, the highlight of it all - each new group takes on a world-class expedition adventure to our extraordinary Wyoming base camps: our Centennial Ranch under the Snowy Range, and our Alpine Mountain Camp under the Tetons. Whitewater rafting, rock-climbing, backpacking backcountry, hiking, stars, campfires, and summiting a mountain peak - Go Beyond campers and their counselors for decades have said these trips “changed my life!” Open to anyone free of charge, many campers have never had the chance to leave their home neighborhoods. In this totally new group doing extraordinary things in extraordinary places, we all get a chance to know ourselves, and each other, in whole new ways. Leading the way each trip, down Forest Service dirt roads, to river canyons and across deserts, the Beardmore Leadership Car has made this extraordinary opportunity possible for hundreds of area young people. Crossing vast mountain regions, claiming campsites, resupply runs, the occasional needed call home or minor injury - Beardmore’s donation of a lead car means our campers experience the best of the Mountain West, getting away from cell phones and crowds. Balancing accessibility with challenge, and focusing on accomplishing what is possible, Beardmore’s donation to Go Beyond changes lives. For the whole summer season, from our opening in May to closing down our camps in September, at our golf tournament, and through a strong staff commitment to this mission - Go Beyond is made possible thanks to the ownership, management, and team of Beardmore. We couldn’t do what we do without them! As we get ready to grow our impact in our community through more opportunities and more trips west, we know that Beardmore’s commitment to this community and our young people means that together we’ll change lives through extraordinary adventure for generations to come.

School Supplies for Military Families - Lisa W

Getting kids back to school can be stressful for any family. It's especially difficult for military families with limited local ties. Every year we host "Operation Backpack" to provide free school supplies to military kids. Local businesses like Beardmore Subaru helped us hand out over 750 backpacks this year, a new record! Beardmore consistently provides support for our military families, and we're proud to be their partner.

Children's Hospital & Medical Center and LLS - Kate H

June 23rd, Brian Hamilton, owner of Beardmore Subaru, along with Chris Fasbender, Brooke Beardmore, Brian Kucks, Ted Lesiecki arrived full of joy and excitement for their annual delivery after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic. This day was full of reminders why we all do what we do, and how important the fight we are fighting is, because loved ones are being diagnosed every day! The Beardmore team was relentless in their mission to make sure every child on the 6th floor was given a blanket and craft kit, and we are sure they brought smiles to each and every one that received a blanket from the caring team at Children’s Hospital & Medical Center. Beardmore Subaru knows more than ever how important the LLS mission is, and they shared Love, Hope, and Warmth to all the patients and families!

Beardmore’s Fight for a Fix could help 1 in 26 - Alyssa H

Did you know that 1 in 26 people will be diagnosed with Epilepsy at some point in their lifetime? Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that can cause reoccurring seizures otherwise known as “seizure disorder.” Right now there is no cure and only 50% of people who have it know the cause. Raising awareness, educating people about the disease, and raising funds for research is what Beardmore has done to help fight for a cure by partnering with the Nebraska Epilepsy Foundation. During the month of March, we divided up the Beardmore Auto Family into three teams and hosted a “Penny War” to raise funds for the organization. Pennies and bills counted as positive points and silver coins counted as negative points for your team. Employees and guests scrounged up their spare change and Beardmore Subaru ended winning with their jars overflowing with coins. We also hosted a lunch and learn to provide our employees with education on the disease and seizure first aid. (And free lunch of course) The executive director, Kristi Berst, from the NE Epilepsy foundation came out to teach us about what to do and what not to do if we are around someone having a seizure. We learned that 1 in 10 people will have a seizure in their lifetime and this knowledge could help save a life. Kristi also mentioned upcoming events we could help support throughout the year. On a very windy Saturday morning in April, our employees and their families participated in the Epilepsy 26 million mile challenge to help support the 1 in 26 people who will suffer from the disease. We had a blast and are thankful we can be a part of the fight. We are looking forward to breaking out our purple wardrobe for Epilepsy Awareness Month in November!

What's important to you? - Brian K

After attending last year’s Subaru National Business Conference and watching the finalists for Subaru Dealer of the Year, we realized we wanted to be “more than the typical car dealer”. We decided to try to come up with more ways to be Starful on our own. After struggling to come up with our own ideas, we asked a long term employee who is heavily involved in the local dog community if there was anything that we could help with the group he was currently involved with. After a couple of hours of deliberating, he came back with a great idea. That got us thinking that if he could come up with something so quickly that was so important to him, why not ask the rest of our employees the same question. So we decided to make a contest out of it. We then sent out a company wide email explaining that we wanted to know what charities/organizations are important to each of them. We asked for three things: Give us a description of what your Charity/Organization does. How are you currently involved? How can Beardmore help? The contest was as follows: The top 5 submissions would receive an extra personal day of vacation. Once we narrowed down the top 5 we would have a company wide vote to choose the winner. 1st place received a check for $500 2nd place received a check for $250 3rd place received a check for $150 Beardmore would also feature the winner’s submission in our advertisements and or have an event to help raise money for the charity/organization. We had such an overwhelming response from our employees that we decided to feature each and every charity that was submitted throughout the entire year. Attached is our first month’s submission and we plan to do something similar throughout the year.

Beardmore Paints Home for Seniors in need - Sara S

BRUSH UP is a community-based event that provides volunteer teams with the opportunity to paint the homes of low-income seniors who live in Douglas and Sarpy counties. Beardmore Subaru was an organization that stepped up and came together with a team to help Gardenia Davis at her home with a fresh coat of paint. The Beardmore Subaru team found Project Houseworks through a collaboration of “Leadership Bellevue” hosted by the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce. Sara Sabaliauskas of Project Houseworks and Chris Fasbender of Beardmore Subaru were in the class together. Sara inspired the Beardmore organization to get a team together and use their time and skills to paint the home for Gardenia. Beardmore was thrilled to help out the community in a new way and just felt, “fulfilled” after the work was complete and the house was just so beautiful afterward said Candance Dunn of Beardmore. A discussion came up while painting on Saturday August 21st and it was asked why Gardenia was selected and how the process works? One of the volunteers Van Fasbender put up his reasons for volunteering. “Gardenia needed our help, and that is all I needed to know, when someone needs your help, you help them out.” Project Houseworks is very honored to have organizations like Beardmore Subaru be a part of their communities and truly make a difference!

Beardmore supports Food Bank for the Heartland - Travis C

Thank you to the outstanding team from Beardmore Subaru for volunteering at Food Bank for the Heartland and packing community boxes of food for our neighbors in need. The dealership and employees also provide financial support to the Food Bank to make food purchases possible. For the Food Bank, “Beardmore in Action” means providing much-needed help for struggling families across the Heartland. Marilynn and her husband are both on Social Security and are still trying to rebuild their lives after their home flooded during the historic flood of 2019 followed by the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. They recently left a mobile pantry distribution event with a box of fresh fruits and vegetables, shelf stable food items and dairy products to help put food on their table for the rest of the month. They are so very grateful and so are we at Food Bank for the Heartland! Thank you for being a partner in our fight against hunger!
