Subaru Garage Transforms into Bingo Palace - Mark W

GRACE'S inaugural Designer Bags & Bingo event was sold out with over 440 people laughing, snacking and daubing their way through one of most fun events we’ve had in years. All the money raised supports the incredible Transitional Housing Program with much needed funds. GRACE Transitional Housing is a 24-month program for homeless or near-homeless families. The competition was fierce as 10 lucky winners went home with exclusive designer bags! Many players received wonderful door prizes and all received terrific swag bags. We had out-right winners on most games. but we also had a couple ties that had to be decided by drawing cards. One draw came down to a dramatic King vs Ace pull for the win! Our host sponsor Sam Pack’s Five Star Subaru of Grapevine made it all possible!! Along with help from our multi-media wizards at Alford Media Services, we were able to turn Five Star Subaru’s state-of-the-art service garage/maintenance bay into an ultra-unique swankified Bingo Palace! Thanks to Tony Hooman and everyone else at Sam Pack’s Five Star Subaru of Grapevine for helping make Designer Bags & Bingo a unique experience and a great success! The money raised far exceeded our hopes and we can’t thank Five Star Subaru enough for helping us change the direction and purpose of those in the Transitional Housing program.

GRACE is honored and humbled to be the recipient of this year’s Subaru Share the Love event. The GRACE family joined the Sam Pack’s Five Star Subaru of Grapevine family for a parade celebrating this momentous occasion where we were presented with a check for $56,193!

Turbos for Tarrant Area Food Bank - Jessica M

After the Texas freeze in February and seeing the devastating impact it had in our local communities, our team at Sam Pack's Five Star Subaru Grapevine knew that we needed to think of unique fun ways to make a collective difference in bringing people together to help in times of need. After some brainstorming, we partnered with our friends at Kraken Motorsports to come up with a monthly car meet for a cause series taking place on the 2nd Saturday of every month. Adding in our Subaru Love Promise mission to give back and help our community, selecting a local non-profit organization doing amazing work in the community to benefit at our car meet each month became the perfect plan. The first in the series took place on Saturday, March 13th from 7 to 9 pm. It was hosted at Five Star Subaru Grapevine which provided a great space for fellow JDM car lovers in the community to come together to showcase their vehicles. It also continued to help Feed America by collecting donations for our local Tarrant Area Food Bank. Texas families not only struggled with freezing temperatures during the storm, but getting basic grocery items had also been a big challenge to many. Some grocery stores were out of stock of essentials or closed due to power outages for several days. Community Relations Manager, Jessica Maranchello recognized this need in the community. In addition to making grocery store runs in her All Wheel Drive Subaru Forester to help pickup groceries for her neighbors, she reached out to the wonderful people over at Tarrant Area Food Bank to offer assistance in helping collect food items for those in need. By bringing the Subaru community together during Turbos for Tarrant Area Food Bank Car Meet for a cause, we were blown away by the amount of support. Individuals came out in droves with stuffed trunks of food donations. The dealership was packed with lots of compassionate guests coming to enjoy fellowship, great music, delicious food, & really cool cars. After a successful car meet, Jessica Maranchello with 3 of her co-workers Shantai Isom, Nicholas Eyster, & Frankie Saif were beyond thrilled to transport a Subaru Ascent filled with over 800 lbs of canned goods and non-perishable food items collected at the car meet to the Tarrant Area Food Bank. Jim McPhearson along with his team graciously met them to receive the donations and take them for a very informational tour of the Tarrant Area Food Bank facility and services. In an effort to provide families with some relief, the Tarrant Area Food Bank with the help of the National Guard resumed its food distribution right when it was needed the most. Alicia and Sean Rizzo from Kraken Motorsports stated, “I just wanted to take a moment to thank the entire team at Five Star Subaru for providing such an amazing venue for our monthly car meet. The level of support you offer to the car community paves the way for people to come together in a safe and fun way for a great cause. As a small business, it is important to us to not only have a great place for our community to meet but also that we do something positive for the community. It is always so humbling to have the opportunity to partner with a larger company, such as Five Star Subaru Grapevine who shares the same values. We had such an amazing time and were just astounded to see our members bring over 800 food items to the car meet to benefit the Tarrant Area Food Bank!! Thank you for your continued support and for being such an awesome company, built with amazing people!”

Trykes For Tykes - Jessica M

On a sunny December Saturday morning, Five Star Subaru of Grapevine and their team watched as six mobility challenged children received trykes. The trykes are engineered by Grapevine AMBUCS alongside physical therapists giving the gift of mobility and independence. The tryke fits the child's needs and gives them the ability to ride a bike by improving physical, mobility, and social skills. We want to give a big thank you for Five Star Subaru's support and the way you give back to our community. You made this a very special day for us as we all watched the kids riding around your parking lot with big smiles on their faces.

Donation for Grace of Grapevine - Dee B

Transportation is a huge challenge for many GRACE clients. With little public transportation within north Tarrant County, getting to and from work, school, grocers, clinics, and all other destinations is a constant concern. The kind folks at Sam Pack’s Five Star Subaru of Grapevine know how important reliable transportation is. Recently the dealership worked with a customer to turn her trade-in into a donation to GRACE. Sandi Clark stepped onto the Five Star Subaru lot intent on getting new Subaru. When the conversation turned to the trade-in value of her older model car, Sandi saw the chance to help another person in a much more valuable way. Instead of using her car as a trade-in, Sandi asked the Subaru salesman, Calum Allen, if she could donate it to GRACE instead. Calum and Dee Boyett, Five Star Subaru Public Relations Specialist, immediately contacted GRACE.GRACE was recently selected by Subaru as its 2020 “Share the Love” charity—the third year in a row GRACE has been honored in this way. Each year, GRACE and the Subaru leadership and sales team get together to talk about those who come to GRACE for help. The “Share the Love” campaign runs early-November through the first few days of the new year, and Subaru donates $250 to GRACE for every car sold during that time. In total, Five Star Subaru has donated nearly $130,000 to support GRACE services and programs. Naturally, when the opportunity came to help GRACE with the car donation, Calum, Dee, and dealership manager Tony Hooman jumped at the chance. Our thanks to Sandi, for her selfless generosity, and to the folks at Sam Pack’s Five Star Subaru for keeping GRACE in their thoughts.

Subaru Sponsors Duck Race 3 years in a row!! - Dee B

Five Star Subaru is the proud sponsor of the 3rd annual duck race held at Grapevine Parks and Rec. For the past three years, we have been the lead sponsor where proceeds go to help Grapevine and Colleyville High School students with scholarships to help students get computers that normally would not be able to afford one. Especially during COVID is this ever so important for students to have a computer. Students write into GCISD and complete a short essay as to why they can not afford a computer. The Grapevine Rotary gets the essays and with the funds received from the duck race are able to help each and every one of these students receive a computer so they can attend school virtually. Community Relations Manager Dee Boyett aligned with Grapevine Rotary club 3 years ago and is an active member to make sure that all students that need computers will receive one its a main core value of Subaru Loves to Learn. During the pandemic, there have been many teachers who will be asking students how they feel, as a way to gauge the well-being of students during this time. Students that have to worry about food, shelter, clothing, and not being able to have a computer for school have so much more added stress. When they can interact with their peers and teachers they feel a sense of belonging and a feeling of contributing to society through learning. The more students learn the more secure they become and gain a thorough understanding and a sense of well-being which helps to diminish stress levels. Receiving a computer is not only a wonderful gift as it can be life-changing for these students.

Heard it through the Grapevine - Dee B

Several months ago Subaru of Grapevine was asked to sponsor the Grants program for the City of Grapevine. Subaru feels it is our personal responsibility to protect Earth’s natural wonders and encourage our retailers and customers to engage in smart environmental practices. Five Star Subaru aligned with the City of Grapevine to give two different grants away, one for beautification and the other for recycling.There was a meeting held at Five Star Subaru where participants were asked to present their safe and helpful environmental practices for a better future. Sam Pack’s Five Star Subaru Community Relations Manager along with the City of Grapevine listened carefully to all those who entered the grant programs. Two different groups were awarded grants. Grapevine Faith High school implemented two water stations to help with recycling. Cross Timbers elementary school is going to beautify their front entrance. During the visit to our dealership, the City of Grapevine learned about our Subaru Loves the earth program with Terracycle. Dee Boyett, Community Relations Manager, and Cindy Harris from City of Grapevine had a meeting and Cindy was introduced to Kyle Riggs from Terracycle. Kyle mentioned how through their partnership with Subaru, “we have diverted more than 4.200,00 pieces of waste from landfills, he also said,” by transforming collected waste we are able to make recycled benches, picnic tables, and outdoor furniture.”On July 22nd, 2020 Cindy invited Subaru of Grapevine to host a meeting with the City of Dallas, City of Fort Worth, and City of Irving. The meeting was to share with our sister cities how Terracycle can improve their communities too. Subaru of America Ryan Streeter and Kyle Riggs from Terracycle showed a power-point presentation. There were many questions and great feedback. In the end, all cities are aligning with Terracycle and Subaru to make a difference in our world. One small act of kindness to help our community turned out to help many others in a cause that puts waste to good use in our community.

Feed our Kids - Dee B

Today June 19,2020 we at Five Star Subaru showed up with 200 box lunches and and a shave ice cream truck to feed kids that may not have a meal this summer. It is part of Subaru's commitment to our community here in the Grapevine area. With a crossing guard and Subaru team members we enjoyed laughter and smiles galore as each child one by one stepped up to get their sandwich, chip, and juice drink box lunch. But, that was not all we at Five Star Subaru knew it would be a very special touch to have a Tiki Island shave ice cream truck come too. Loaded with reggae music and all kinds of choices kids lined up to receive their ice cream to cool down after their delicious lunch.Community Relations Manager Dee Boyett with two of her co-workers, Casey Pierce and Rutger Kesling enjoyed bringing love to each of these children today. Subaru loves to help, just one part of the Subaru love promise, its one more reason why Subaru is more than a car company.

Covid-19 Strong - Five Star Subaru F

Being a part of a community starts in your backyard and we at Five Star Subaru belong to Grapevine Rotary Club where the motto is "Service above Self!" During the past few weeks we at Sam Pack's Five Star Subaru aligned with Grapevine Rotary to make sure Grapevine Fire Department received 1,000 N95 face masks to serve the Grapevine Community. Chief Darrell Brown was so thrilled that through our connections we were able to find masks and have them made quickly so they could have them within a matter of hours. But, that is not all, our Customer Relations Manager at Five Star Subaru Dee Boyett is on a volunteer club that helps people in the Grapevine area by calling people to make sure they have what they need groceries, running errands, walking dog etc. More importantly, help with needs that might be hard to come by like the Police Chief who needed thermometers to check his staff for the virus. By doing the calling list we found out the Chief of police Mike Hamlin and his crew needed thermometers within a few hours we connected the Deputy Superintendent Brad Schnautz with the Chief of Police and they had 11 thermometers at their station that very same day. Through the connections and partnering Sam Pack Five Star Subaru with Grapevine Rotary we were able to not only help our district but other school districts as soon as they heard of this news are helping their local police stations too!! Next week Dee Boyett with two of her co-members from Grapevine Rotary Jan Ramsey and Darlene Freed will meet to sew and make more masks for the police department and fire department and for the dealership and the Rotary club alike. This is what it means when you become more about community, when we go out of our way to build lifelong relationships, "Subaru's Love Promise, we do this because we feel it is the right thing to do!"

Keep Grapevine Beautiful is excited to collaborate with Sam Pack’s Five Star Subaru-Grapevine on this wonderful opportunity for the community. One of this years winners picked by Grapevine Parks and Rec's and Dee Boyett from Five Star Subaru is Grapevine Faith High School. The representative from Grapevine Faith High School, Mallory Greer gave a presentation that we were very interested in supporting.She had some great facts on just how much waste would be eliminated by installing a refillable water station. Teachers, students, and athletic departments both home and visiting would benefit.The opportunity for Subaru to align with recycle, reuse, and re-purpose came alive at their high school and we installed not one but two water stations!!!The most impressive fact we learned from Mallory Greer was, "With one refillable water station we have saved in one year over 400,000 water bottles from making to the landfill."Pictured above are the two water stations as you can see we are all thrilled to be a part of making a difference to help save the earth!!!!

Subaru Loves to Learn - Dee B

Sam Pack Subaru of Grapevine has championed with the Longhorn Council, Boy Scouts of America, LLC for the past 3 years by donating college scholarships for Eagle Scouts. The Eagle Scouts had to earn the highest level of achievement or rank attainable in the Scouts BSA program while being a member of the Longhorn Council and submit a video explaining, “How Scouting impacted your life as well as your community?” Scholarships have been presented during the “Legacy Breakfast” fundraising event held at the Marq in Southlake and chaired by Sanjay Chandra, CFA, Trinity Private Equity Group. This community outreach fundraiser brought the Cities of Colleyville, Grapevine, Southlake and the towns of Trophy Club and Westlake together to support their local Scouting program. With 2019 being the 100th anniversary of the Longhorn Council we opened the scholarship opportunity to Eagle Scouts in the 23 Counties served by the Council. The Council Camporee was held at the Texas Motor Speedway 11/10/19 where Scouts and their families were able to spend a day experiencing Scouting skills and STEM activities followed by an evening of entertainment and achievement awards. Sam Pack Subaru of Grapevine awarded the two winning Scout scholarships during the evening celebration. We thank Sam Pack Subaru for their generosity in supporting Scouting and helping two Eagle Scouts each year through their scholarship program, to further themselves by attending college. Yours in Scouting, Dietz L. Froehlich | Development Director

On October 1st the wonderful group at Five Star Subaru showed up with so many colorful, informative, and exciting Science books.

"Some people just know how to make things happen and you are absolutely one of those people", says Buddy Teaster CEO for Souls4Soles. I did not want another day to go by without acknowledging all the hard work, time, and energy you invested in our work together. Your efforts made a real difference to people all around the world. Together as a team we were able to help kids in schools and adults at work with shoes. It is amazing to think it all starts with shoes. Without shoes kids can not attend and walk to school and adults can not work. Shoes can actually help with fighting disease in some countries they can offer hope and dignity. When partners like Soles4Souls and Five Star Subaru team up we can and will make a difference in our world it is nice to see that "Subaru Loves to Help!!' With Deepest thanks, Buddy Teaster.

Going Green at Five Star Subaru - Dee B

Eco-Friendly Award recognizes Subaru retailers who complete comprehensive program to minimize environmental impact in DFW. Subaru of America, Inc. (SOA) today presented Subaru of Grapevine with the Subaru Eco-Friendly Retailer Award. This award is given to Subaru retailers who complete a voluntary environmental program designed to make a positive impact on their community and local environment. To complete the comprehensive certification process, Subaru retailers must meet the requirements of a point-based inspection in five areas of conservation: energy efficiency, water conservation, recycling,waste management, and community involvement. Five Star Subaru optimized their facility’s energy efficiency by installing all new LED lighting in the entire facility and programmable thermostats. To reduce water consumption, the facility was upgraded with re-cycled water for the car wash, as well as water efficient landscaping. By recycling material such as paper,metal, cardboard and plastic, waste is diverted from landfills. Their facility continues to ensure proper disposal of other waste material such as oil, coolant, batteries and tires, and Subaru of Grapevines employees are actively involved in community programs focused on preserving and protecting the environment. When you visit the cafe area designed for guests to enjoy on their visits you can observe the terra-cycle boxes reserved for re-cycling.
