UCPIE's Team Freedom at Tour de Palm Springs - Calista V

United Cerebral Palsy of the Inland Empire (UCPIE) has been creating smiles, freedom and belonging since 2012 with their adaptive bike program and Team Freedom at Tour de Palm Springs. Each bike is custom made to support the rider’s abilities and helps them meet their physical therapy goals. Riders discover a new found freedom on their bike and also partake in a larger community: from family bike rides, to taking off with friends, to many special events where riders experience a sense of accomplishment and connection. Each year Team Freedom walks and rides in the Tour de Palm Springs, one of the largest cycling charity events of its kind in America. On February 12, 2022 UCPIE’s Team Freedom had over 70 participants both on location and virtually participate in their neighborhoods and communities to participate in the 24th annual Tour de Palm Springs. “It’s amazing, especially with being apart so long to see the unity of a community to support not only local non-profits but health and wellness as a whole.” said Rhea Hoffman, first time Tour de Palm Springs participant. Practicing social distancing but brought together on social media, virtual team members and their families shared photos and videos using the hashtags #ucpie #teamfreedom2022 #tourdepalmsprings. Lori Enroth shares her family’s experience, “While we are still quarantining to protect Andy, our medically fragile son, we got to show our team spirit and be part of the Tour de Palm Springs by walking in our backyard. Thanks to all of our friends and family who supported UCPIE!” UCPIE's Team Freedom would like to thank Palm Springs Subaru for not only sponsoring us at this event but also walking with us! Money raised by Team Freedom helps UCPIE fund life-changing programs and services for many special needs families in the Inland Empire. Everyone also loved the Subaru sunglasses and drink koozies that were included in their bag for the event. Palm Springs Subaru is awesome! For more information about UCPIE please visit ucpie.org.

Subaru Loves Learning at JFK Elementary - Cynthia K

Dear Palm Springs Subaru, I wanted to thank you for the kind donation that allowed me to purchase supplemental items for my classroom. As you know the current pandemic was devastating to our educational system. Many of my students are 2 to 3 years below grade level and with the curriculum that we are given most of the materials do not have enough supplemental materials to help those students get caught up. Your generous donation has allowed me to give my students the materials that they need to help fill those gaps. They truly enjoy being able to take folders back to their desk to work on. The colorful folders are an added bonus for those that are visual and need extra enhancement to complete their tasks. Thank you for making a difference in my classroom!

Lifesaving Blood Drive - Jacob P

The blood drive at Palm Springs Subaru was a great turnout! We now have the potential to save over 50 lives with these donations. There is currently a national crisis as many hospitals have less than a days supply on hand. Blood donations are needed now more than ever to avert the need to cancel future treatments. Thank you Palm Springs Subaru team for rolling up your sleeves to help save lives.

Sandra's CVRM Journey - Scott W

CVRM wishes to thank everyone at Palm Springs Subaru for their generous gift of blankets this fall. These blankets, although some were distributed directly to clients already at CVRM, are primarily being used to support our street outreach teams. Five days a week, our outreach teams are in the field making contact with the homeless community, meeting them where they are, bringing the Mission to them. We provide food, water, clothing, referral services, showers, and an opportunity to be transported back to CVRM for additional services and shelter. We encourage all we encounter to come back to CVRM, much like Sandra, who has made an incredible journey so far Here is her story: Sandra was previously living in Bakersfield where she was working at a group home facility but she was forced to resign which caused her to lose her apartment. She decided to move to Indio where she previously resided. Unfortunately, she lost the apartment she was renting in Indio and she was left homeless. Over the course of interacting with our street outreach teams, she was given food, water, clothing, and a blanket to make her more comfortable on the street. She soon reached out to CVRM seeking shelter and received help through our program staff to get back on track. Since then, she has taken advantage of the resources that CVRM provides and she is very grateful with the staff that motivates her to reenter into the community. She has stated, “The staff at CVRM have motivated me and made me feel that being homeless is not the end of our stability.”

Reunited Rhonda - Catie V

Rhonda was surrendered into Palm Springs Animal Shelter with ear issues so severe she could hardly hear. We were able to call in a specialist to help reconstruct and allow for proper drainage. The surgery was a success however, due to ongoing allergies and potential future ear issues finding Rhonda a forever home was proving to be a challenge. As months passed Rhonda continued to be passed over. Finally, coincidentally, Rhonda was adopted by her former family. She was rehired a few years prior after the family had to move and due to Rhonda's breed she could not go with them. One of Rhonda's owners then saw that she was available for adoption again. Her living situation had changed and the opportunity to add this amazing pup into her family again could not be passed up. Rhonda was reunited with her original family and we couldn't be more thrilled. This underdog is now happily in her forever home - FOREVER!

Rupert Gets a Second Chance at Love - Briana M

Rupert was brought to the Palm Springs Animal Shelter in July, along with his brother Will, when they were both about 4 months old. Both kittens were nearly feral, extremely shy, and afraid of humans. After spending some time in a foster home, both brothers came around to their foster family a bit more and were then made available for adoption. Unfortunately, due to their age and the number of very small kittens we had over the summer, Rupert and his brother were often overlooked. After a while, Will found a home and Rupert remained with us at Palm Springs Animal Shelter. Eventually Rupert was adopted, but unfortunately returned to us after not being outgoing enough for his new family. We took a new approach once Rupert returned. We placed him in a free roaming cat room where he would hang out all day with 4 to 6 other cats his age. With the help of some very dedicated volunteers, we were able to help Rupert come out of his shell even more. After spending two more months in our care, the Palm Springs Animal Shelter held an adoption event thanks to the support of Subaru. Rupert was adopted by a new family who fully understood his timid nature, but had high hopes that with the help of his new cat brother and their quiet home, Rupert would blossom. Last week, Rupert's new family sent a photo of him and his adopted brother telling us that he has already made strides and his adoptive family loves him very much. Rupert is even warming up to letting them show their love through pets and hugs. This second chance at love was made possible by Subaru's support of our annual adoption event. We, Rupert, and hundreds of pets are grateful for Subaru's incredible generosity and commitment to our community's animals over the years.
