Fill the Ascent for Shepherds Green Food Pantry - Ryan M

Amidst COVID, A. Crivelli Subaru reached out to Shepherd’s Green Food Pantry, a ministry of St. John’s Episcopal Church, to see what could be done to help those during this time. An idea was formed to see if the community could fill up a Subaru Ascent with food and hygiene items, which was dubbed “Fill the Ascent”. This ended up providing over 4 boxes of food for members of the Franklin area, as well as giving the community more opportunity to give back, despite what was going on around them. This was the first year that A. Crivelli partnered with Shepherd’s Green Food Pantry, and when the food was ready to distribute, Joe Hawthorne, Subaru Sales Consultant, and Kasey Zerbe, General Sales Consultant, delivered the food to the parish where Rev. Elizabeth Ivell received the food, they were was grateful for the donation. The ministry continues to grow, along with the community, and will continue with the help and support of A. Crivelli Subaru and Subaru of America.

Subaru Loves the Venango County Humane Society - Bethany R

Every year, the Venango County Humane Society saves nearly three hundred animals. The coronavirus brought both triumphs and tribulations. Due to more families staying at home due to the orders of the state government, we were lucky to see an uptick in adoptions. So much that at one point, we only had 3 dogs available! We partnered with a transport from Tennessee/Kentucky to transfer over 20 dogs from rural high-kill shelters to our facility in September and again in November. Nonetheless, our usual money-raising events had to be cancelled for the safety of our local residents. Sadly, our funds decreased exponentially. We still had the desire to rescue but looked for other ways to pull funding from our local businesses and community. The Subaru Loves Pets campaign provided us with an avenue. With every animal adopted in October, we were able to raise the Humane Society $3100. Due to A-Crivelli Chevrolet Subaru in Franklin, we are now able to continue our mission to rescue the neglected, the abandoned and the unloved and give them a new chance at life. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts from the staff and the paws, both past and present.

A. Crivelli is 519strong since 2018 - Ryan M

It started with one man who had a heart for others, on and off the racetrack. Who inspired a generation of people with his fight when racing and his fight against cancer, Jeremy Coast. It sparked an organization that wanted to spread the same positive nature that Jeremy embodied. To help those who are going through hardship and to make the burden easier, while giving them hope and a light no matter what they would be facing. Since 2015 519strong has been a beacon in Venango County and has stayed dedicated by offering over 20 scholarships to local high school students heading into college. While focusing locally with toy drives to give kids in the hospital some cheer among chemotherapy and tests that they endure. These simple acts of assistance are there to help those in need, when no other hope seems to be found. Which is in keeping with the spirit of Jeremy. In 2018 A. Crivelli joined forces with 519Strong to help bolster the already generous charity that they were giving, by donating $250 dollars per Subaru that was sold during the Subaru "Share the Love" event. This helped to give 519Strong a great reach leading to the donation of $5,190.00 to the Kirtland Foundation to assist in cancer research and various other organizations during the Oil City V. Cancer event in Venango County. A. Crivelli has continued this tradition in 2019 and has raised over $3675 that has been given from the generosity of customers buying new Subaru's and donation. Continuing a partnership to help out the local community in ways that are beyond getting from point a to Point B.

A. Crivelli Brings Hope, Warmth to Cancer Patients - Breanna S

This was the second year in a row that A. Crivelli Subaru partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) on their month-long “Subaru Loves to Care” campaign. Jim Boburka, General Sales Manager, and Larry Smith, Subaru Sales Manager, had the opportunity to distribute donated blankets to everyone receiving outpatient cancer treatment at UPMC Northwest on July 18. A. Crivelli Subaru gifted a generous 80 blankets to the facility, so the cancer center also set aside dozens of blankets to give away to additional patients over the coming days. The UPMC staff told Jim and Larry how happy their patients were after last year’s delivery and how much the facility appreciated being chosen to receive these blankets again. Staff from both organizations agreed that it was a heartwarming experience for everyone involved. LLS owes a debt of gratitude to everyone at A. Crivelli Subaru and Subaru of America for making this program possible. Thank you for joining the Western Pennsylvania & West Virginia Chapter of LLS in our mission to cure blood cancers and to improve the lives of patients and their families in our area.

A. Crivelli's Support of the Barrow-Civic Theatre - Mary Ann R

Hi, my name is Mary Ann Richardson, and I represent the Barrow-Civic Theatre, located in beautiful Franklin, Pennsylvania. I have served on the Barrow/FCOA Board of Directors since 1960 (55 years), 25 of those years as Chairman, and currently, am 2nd Vice Chair and Fundraising Chairman. I am here to sing the praises of "The Auto Giant" A. Crivelli. He truly is "The Auto Giant" of Northwestern Pennsylvania, in more ways than one. A. Crivelli has been a major sponsor for the Barrow-Civic Theatre. In October, 2014, for our major fundraising production, A. Crivelli donated $1,000 cash for the grand prize. In March of this year, for our B&B Dinner Theatre, which we did as a joint effort with Belles Lettres Women's Club of Oil City, Pennsylvania, A. Crivelli donated 4 gift certificates valued at $500 each, which were awarded to the 200 patrons attending the dinner theater. The A. Crivelli organization, because of their major donations, have greatly contributed to the success of the Barrow-Civic Theatre, helping us to provide affordable, top-notch theater productions in the Northwestern Pennsylvania area from Pittsburgh to Erie. We thank you, A. Crivelli, from the bottom of our hearts.
