Prestige Subaru along with all Greater Asheville North Carolina Retailers have teamed up to donate meals to local food banks including a donation of 190,340 meals to the MANNA Food Bank.

As we navigate the uncertainties of the current crisis, one thing we can still do is help. Last year MANNA FoodBank distributed 19.8 million lbs of food in their effort to end hunger in WNC. With many aspects of business disrupted, a simple donation can go a long way, with every $1 providing for 4 meals. Find out more and consider a donation today:

Prestige Subaru is now a drop off site for Manna Food Bank. We have barrels in both our New Car Showroom as well as our Prestige Adventure Center. Consider bringing some items when you come in to purchase a vehicle or to have your vehicle serviced

No act of kindness no matter how small is ever wasted ! 

Our Service Manager recently helped raise money for a cause that is near and dear to his heart: Charlie's Angels Animal Rescue in Fletcher, NC. The following is from their Facebook:

" We are ever so grateful of the help we have in our community. We want to send out a Big Thank You- to Jerry Hagan -volunteer for doing a fundraiser for Charlie's Angels. He raffled off a very expensive toolbox and today he brought by a check to us for $2370.00

This money is a great help to our rescue and our mission of saving homeless animals in Western North Carolina.

Thank you so much. It truly takes a village. "

Asheville Humane Society received two big donations Thursday thanks to Prestige Subaru and Subaru USA.

Nearly $70,000 was donated from the Subaru's Share the Love event, which provides $250 for each car sold with a match from Prestige.

And close to $120,000 was raised through various Prestige events, like Dine to be Kind and Taste of Compassion.

"The donations from Prestige Subaru allow us to do so much, including medical care. We take in every local animal in need. So, we need money for their vet care or supplies for foster. You know, it just helps everything that we do, all of our programs, as well as pets in the community," Asheville Humane Society's Meredith Pitcarin said.

Asheville Humane Society estimates it has received close to $1 million from Prestige Subaru over the last decade.

Congratulations to Rebecca Hutchinson Bodenheimer who is the recipient of our year long 2017 Bellyak Giveaway. Rebecca was the lucky winner out of countless entries for a Play 35 Bellyak. Congratulations!

Asheville is known for its eclectic downtown, its vibrant music scene, its plentiful breweries, and, of course, its award-winning restaurants. Chefs all over the city are curating their menus around what is seasonally available in Buncombe County and its surrounding areas, focusing on what grows natively or locally. The result?

Helping those who cannot help themselves

This past week, our amazing friends at Prestige Subaru presented a $75,851 check to local animals in need!!! Once again, Asheville Humane Society was incredibly honored to be chosen as the Hometown Charity during Subaru of America's Share the Love event! Subaru of America donated $250 for every new Subaru sold or leased to the customer's choice of four national charities or the Hometown Charity, and Prestige Subaru matched each donation at $150. We are so grateful that so many community members chose to 'Share the Love' with our animals! Thank you, friends!!!

In total, Prestige has donated over $100,000 to Asheville Humane Society this past year, which means one in five animals found their loving homes thanks to Prestige Subaru's generosity and support. To show our appreciation, we dedicated our new "Red Carpet Adoption Step & Repeat," featuring Prestige Subaru's logo, during the check presentation. Every adopter can now take their first family photo with their new pet in style! We hope this small tribute will be a constant reminder of Prestige Subaru's continued compassion toward homeless animals in our community.

(And we personally love supporting Subaru you can see from our own parking lot! It's starting to look a lot like Subieville!)

We had a wonderful Wednesday morning delivering blankets to the patients at the Mission Heath SECU Cancer Center as part of the Subaru Love Promise. Thank you Mission Health and LLS for all the wonderful work you do!


Prestige Subaru Blue Ridge Community College donation

Recently Prestige Subaru donated a 2012 Subaru Forester and several sets of Subaru Service Manuals to Blue Ridge Community College for use by future technicians. Prestige hopes to assist their educational efforts and strengthen them as the future technicians that will keep Subaru vehicles in top condition. We hope that this donation, as well as the new partnership with Subaru's Subaru University will create a bond that will urge the best and brightest of Blue Ridge's Automotive students to consider Subaru as their brand of choice for their automotive career.

Taste of Compassion - November 2014

A HUGE thanks to everyone who attended this year's Taste of Compassion in support of the Asheville Humane Society and the amazing work they do here in Western North Carolina! It turned out to be a phenomenal event once again filled with good people, good music, and goodwill united under one roof in support of a truly great organization. We really believe in the passionate work of AHS and are excited to see the continued support and growing success of Taste of Compassion!

Congratulations to this year's live auction winner of a brand new 2015 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium in Lapis Blue! Your support will make many happy animals and many happy homes!

(*Fast Forward*)

In the wake of winning his new Subaru and after some reflection, our Charitable Winner decided to double down on goodwill. A name had popped into his mind earlier that night - that name was Quita - and while the Asheville Humane Society received the proceeds from the auctioned Subaru, Quita Mazzina of Humane Alliance Spay/Neuter Clinic here in Asheville is now the proud new owner of a 2015 Subaru Outback!

Our Charitable Winner had heard of their need for a new capable vehicle, and in an amazing philanthropic win-win, filled that need at Taste of Compassion. Under Quita's stewardship, Humane Alliance has become a national leader in spay/neuter programs and initiatives. We wish you many happy miles in your new Subaru as you continue to make a positive difference in our community!

We'd like to extend our thanks and gratitude to the anonymous philanthropist for his encouraging spirit and inspirational contributions, helping make the world a better place and this year's Taste of Compassion truly one-of-a-kind!
