At Monroe County Meals on Wheels, we believe in being more than "just a meal." Here our homebound clients are not just people; they are friends and friends take care of each other. This is especially true doing the holiday season; several of our clients within vulnerable populations across Monroe County are left alone and without human connections during a time of joy and laughter. This is where a new holiday tradition, Santa Squad, was born. With two years under our jolly belt, our organization has provided 700+ gifts to 300+ clients. This accomplishment would be impossible if it not for our dedicated volunteer base, which includes one of our biggest community supporters, Ertle ​Subaru. General Manager Gus Wadsworth & fellow Ertle Delivery driver Eugene Williams took time out to assist in this incredible holiday effort for the second year in a row. When it comes to supporting our mission through volunteering or fundraising, Ertle ​Subaru truly understands what it means to be more than a meal, a friend and community advocate.

Subaru Loves Pets 2021 Underdog Story - MaryLynn K

Ertle Subaru chose us again this year for Subaru Loves Pets. We just wanted to say thank you and share a story about one of the many underdogs that were adopted throughout the month of October. AJ was with his family since the age of 8 weeks old. Domestic Violence in the home led to divorce. The mother and 2 children went to a hotel for woman in this situation. They successfully hid AJ for a week without the owner finding out. When he found the cat he said the cat had to go or they had to go. The family was upset to surrender AJ to us. Happily AJ was adopted by a wonderful woman and he is now her emotional support animal. Thank you Ertle Subaru!

Thanksgiving in Kunkletown - Karena T

When you think of Thanksgiving, you think of family, peace and FOOD! My name is Karena and I am the founder and current director of the West End Food Pantry in rural Kunkletown, Pennsylvania. Once again, Ertle Subaru and his crew helped us provide a full Thanksgiving meal to over 280 local families that are low-income, struggling to put food on their table and desperate for help. Not only did the Ertle crew hand out turkeys from the back of a box truck, but they also handed out a bag of food that was filled to the brim with all the fixings a family may need for a full Thanksgiving dinner. (This even included the ingredients for a pie!) The financial support to bring this to the community is a huge blessing to so many! Without this support, we as a volunteer organization, would not be able to provide such a meal due to the expense. But not only does Ertle Subaru provide the monies needed for such a meal, their crew comes out, gives a Saturday morning, stands out in the cold (because our food distribution is still an outside, drive-thru system due to COVID), and hands out every turkey and meal bag to each family that pulls up! Ertle Subaru completely exemplifies the meaning of “share the love” and bring true community support that is priceless in my mind! Thank you Ertle Subaru for all you do!

Ertle Subaru Sponsors Hole-In-One Prize - Melanie M

Ertle Subaru has sponsored a hole-in-one prize at the 10th Annual Dario Belardi Scholarship Golf Tournament. Held annually, the Dario Belardi Golf Tournament brings together local businesses leaders, groups, and individuals to enjoy the fresh air and friendly competition on the greens. During this un-FORE-gettable tournament golfers get to make new business connections and experience a fun and friendly charitable golf scramble that features: special contests, goody bags, boxed lunch and prizes. This event honors the incredible generosity of man who was a lifetime supporter of United Way. In his name, this tournament continues to cultivate a culture of giving! I am very happy to report that on September 28th, Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau and Pocono Mountains United Way fielded a fun and successful 10th Annual Dario Belardi/2021 Scholarship Golf Tournament at Hideaway Hills Golf Club. Eighty-four golfers joined us for a fun morning and exciting afternoon. “Our deepest thanks to all who chanced the storm and were ultimately rewarded with a beautiful day of golf!” -Michael Tukeva, President/CEO, Pocono Mountains United Way. Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau and Pocono Mountains United Way would like to thank all of the volunteers, participants, donors, and sponsors for making our 2021 Dario Belardi Scholarship Golf Tournament a huge success. Ertle Subaru, family owned and operated for more than 40 years, was proud to support the event and our community through providing a new 2021 Subaru Crosstrek to any golfer who made a hole-in-one on a specified hole during the event. We especially want to thank Ertle Subaru for being a Hole-in-One Prize Sponsor this year. We are extremely grateful to our business and community partners who contributed so much to this event.

Share the Love - Pocono Mountains United Way - Michael T

Pocono Mountains United Way is grateful for Ertle Subaru's gift through the Share the Love event. Through 2020, Pocono Mountains United Way has led the humanitarian response to COVID-19.

We prepare tax returns for households that make less than $56,000/year. All of our programs are free because of folks like you. Your gift to Pocono Mountains United Way helps to ensure... - Children are prepared to succeed in school and beyond. - Individuals are working to improve their financial stability. - People in our community won't go hungry. - No family struggles to make ends meet.

Share the Love - Knights of Columbus Council 7141 - Leo W

Subaru’s “Share the Love” program, through Ertle Subaru, has provided a much-needed boost to our Knights of Columbus Council 7141 financial resources. The $15,356 received will help many of our neighbors in the Monroe County area. Our annual scholarship will now be more solvent with a brighter future to continue for at least five more years. Msgr. Connel A. McHugh Council 7141 recently donated $5,000 to a fund designated for those in need and affected by the Covid pandemic. We have a long-term history of assisting local agencies such as: Pleasant Valley Ecumenical Network, Burnley Workshop, and our own annual scholarship program. In addition, the funds will be used to donate to emergency situations which arise and the families affected by these disasters, as well as those agencies who continually provide to the poor. This generous donation definitely will continue “Sharing the Love” and our council and community cannot express enough well wishes for the continuation of this wonderful program.

Ertle Subaru helps prove COVID Can't Beat Caring! - Ryan L

With special thanks to Ertle Subaru, we can count on having some additional funds to help our programs that because of COVID we struggled to raise. As non profit agencies we count on our connection with the public to be able to put together fundraising efforts to help support our programs. This year is was made close to impossible due to COVID-19 and social distance regulations. Having Ertle Subaru choose us to benefit from the Share the Love event this year was such a blessing! Not only were they able to get great vehicles to the public but allow the public themselves to give back to their community. Many people didn't have extra money this year to give to charities. This event helped everyone! The funds from the Share the Love event will go to support our community programs helping to provide Healthy Food Access, Access to Quality Education and Help with Financial Stability. We love anytime we can partner with the Ertle Family! This event helped people Be the Reason Monroe County stays strong during this crisis!

Thanksgiving Blessings! - Karena T

On Nov. 21, 2020, Ertle Subaru came to the West End Food Pantry to bring cheer and Thanksgiving to 358 local families. They brought their staff and their smiles to personally hand out turkeys and fresh potatoes to each family that came through the line in need that day. We gave out food for 3 hours on this early Saturday morning in the cold; and from beginning to end, Jim and his staff never grew weary, but continued to offer words of cheer to each and every client. Personally, I have heard the words of gratitude directly from many clients. 282 senior citizens on a small, fixed income received turkeys that day and a few expressed that the turkey would fill their bellies for weeks to come. One senior told me her grandkids were coming over for Thanksgiving and she was so worried she wouldn't have any food to give them except a can of soup. She said she was so blessed when she left the pantry with a whole turkey and all of the fixings. She slept well that night and got up bright and early to start preparing their holiday meal. Food insecurity is a real problem in our rural area. Add COVID to the equation, you have hundreds of families worried about their next meal every single day. Thanks to Jim and his crew because not only did they give a meal, they took tremendous stress off of those that would have gone without during this holiday. Adding a little family time and a little joy is what Ertle Subaru brought on Nov. 21 to the West End Food Pantry, which is indeed priceless. I can't express the impact that Ertle Subaru's generosity means to all of my neighbors and friends in need!

Monroe County Meals on Wheels & Ertle Subaru - Stacey K

Monroe County Meals on Wheels provides each of our clients with a gift during the holiday season. These gifts are donated by members of the community. This year because of an increase in the number of clients, our gift delivery was done by members of our "Santa Squad". These volunteers took gifts to over 280 clients during the holiday season!Ertle Subaru General Manager Gus Wadsworth & Eugene Williams, Ertle Delivery Truck Driver, volunteered their time and joined our "Santa Squad" volunteers in delivering some much-needed holiday cheer to our clients. Many of these clients are home bound and live alone so they really appreciated this special delivery. Ertle Subaru & it's employees continue to be strong supporters of our organization through their participation each year in the Share the Love Event and our other fundraisers. We greatly appreciate their continued support!
