medford elementary school, loves to learn ! - Steven F

Dear Steve Fulco, Please see the attached photo. It includes five of the six classroom teachers and myself with the Adopt a Classroom bus. The teachers are thrilled to have received the $500 for their students’ needs and were not expecting this windfall! The donation went to the building’s special education teachers; a new program for the Medford Elementary School. Many of the teachers are new to education and this is certainly going to assist them in their ability to provide their students with new materials. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!

During the Subaru "Loves learning" initiative Donaldsons has donated over $3000 worth of much needed school supplies to Medford Elementary school located in Patchogue NY, just a few miles from the dealership.

Donaldsons Shares the Love for a 5th year! - Rachel S

Our hospital has been genuinely touched by the outpouring of support from our community over the past year and we are forever grateful for each and every generous gift made to our hospital. While we have gained new donors, we must reserve a special place in our hearts for our friends and benefactors who, not only stood with us through the pandemic, but were also there for us long before. One of those wonderful supporters are our friends at Donaldsons Subaru, who for the 5th year in a row, have designated Long Island Community Hospital as the local charity for Subaru’s National Share the Love Event. We were honored to be presented with a check for $33,150 from David Donaldson and Bill Donaldson, whose total contribution over the past five years has now surpassed $179,000. We are incredibly grateful to the Donaldsons Team for their support through this wonderful program, as well as for their continuous generosity in the support of our signature fundraising events as a Foundation Partner.

Donaldsons comes through again! - Pat L L

We recently picked up my 4th Subaru from Donaldsons and my salesman zaak fox, we love zaak! We were returning our leased Forester and getting a new 2021 touring model. With all the information and lease return stuff being passed back and forth, I left my extra keys to the new forester on Zaak’s desk. As soon as we walked into our house, zaak was calling offering to stop by after his shift and drop them off. I explained that was not necessary because I was coming back the next day to pick up a pet seat cover that we had ordered from the parts department, as luck would have it, the next day we were hit with a major snow storm that was going to be substantial. I am out shoveling snow the next day, somehow my key fell out of my pocket and we could not find it with the amount of snow on the ground and us tossing the snow all around it could have been tossed anywhere. I work at a local food pantry that does not close and had to get to work, I called Donaldsons and was greeted by Steve Fulco the general manager, he explained they were getting ready to close because of the snow storm but he would do all he could to help us. We hung up, not even 10 minutes later zaak calls us and says he will drop off my extra keys on his way home, we were blown away, the storm was bad but zaak came through, and he had our dogs seat cover from parts with him ! We found the lost key a few days later on the lawn after the snow had started to melt. Thank you to zaak , Steve and Donaldsons for being the best.

Donaldsons comes through again!

TSLI’s programs include Pathways, Special Employment Program (SEP) and Summit. Haven House/Bridges, Inc. (HHB) was formed in 1995 by the merger of two separate homeless housing programs; Haven House which was established by the Huntington Coalition for the Homeless and Bridges, which was initiated by Transitional Services of New York for Long Island, Inc. (TSLI).HHB’s programs provide housing, training and guidance to homeless families, single mothers and their young children, as well as individuals and families affected by HIV/AIDS.

Donaldsons feeds the Hungry for Thanksgiving !!! - mary y

Donaldsons Subaru has partnered with Long Island cares (Harry Chapin food bank) once again for a pre-thanksgiving food drive to feed hungry families on Long Island. The initiative started on November 1st and runs until November 22nd, the outpouring of love and Donations from the local community has been amazing said Steven Fulco G.M of sales operations. We had a huge banner made for outside announcing that Donaldsons was a key drop off point for this drive and people have been randomly stopping in just to drop off bags of nonperishable food items. This food bank feeds over 283k long islanders every year! Donations are desperately needed for the thanksgiving time of year. The end result will be 2 Subaru Ascents filled with the donated food and driven to the food bank and dropped off 4 days before thanksgiving for processing. This event is very near and dear to the Donaldsons family of employees as we all live and work locally, Donaldsons has been selling cars on Long Island since 1955.
