Since 2015, Continental Subaru has partnered with Anchorage’s Salvation Army in ‘adopting’ families that need a hand up during the Christmas holiday. This year, Continental provided for two large families that were identified through various community outreach professionals (schools; counselors; churches; medical professionals) that needed some extra care this season. Adopt-a-Family is a holiday program facilitated by The Salvation Army that pairs up families in need with a sponsor to ‘adopt’ that family. It is a unique program for families who have experienced a devastating tragedy or crisis during the past year. Through the Adopt-A-Family program, Continental became a sponsor of two families that are experiencing severe economic, emotional, or physical crisis. We help by purchasing new winter gear; clothing, toys, household items, and food or grocery store certificates. In some instances, families request a special ‘wish’. In addition to clothing, gifts and food, Continental provided a set of studded snow tires and our good friends and local partner, Mattress Ranch provided five twin size beds, sheets and pillows to our families. Adopting families thru the Salvation Army is just another example of how Continental Subaru Shares the Love with our Anchorage community.
