Valenti Subaru supports the arts & new tradition! - Lisa K

Valenti Subaru supports the arts and helped launch our globally recognized Lobster Trap tree! The Ocean Community Chamber of Commerce created its first ever Stonington Lobster Trap Tree which is a public art installation featuring the professional works of art of over 110 artists from CT and RI. This free admission attraction has been visited by over 20,000 people so far and made global headlines with BBC news. Our major sponsor this first year was Valenti Subaru and Bruce Morrow has donated a great deal of time to support the project over the last year. We are so grateful for their financial help, volunteer contributions and community spirit. Truly, they helped put Stonington CT on the map! Additionally, Valenti Subaru supports our Fusion bodypainting event, another artistic endeavor that reached a record high attendance this year.

Education and Leadership – two Priorities of Valenti Subaru Philanthropy! The Ocean Community Chamber Foundation is indebted to Valenti Subaru for all of their support of our programs.

Valenti Subaru is a vital community partner - Ruth T

Valenti Subaru is far more than another business in town. Bruce Morrow is committed to making the greater Westerly area the best it can be by helping our non-profit organizations that provide so many vital services to residents.The Frank Olean Center is dedicated to improving the lives of our friends, neighbors, and family members with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Center’s dedicated staff helps our participants realize their dreams by providing the support necessary for them to achieve greater levels of independence, productivity and inclusion in the community.We are grateful to Bruce for selecting the Frank Olean Center as a recipient of the Valenti Subaru Share the Love Event this year. Inclusion is a vital part of what we do at the Olean Center, and this significant opportunity for fundraising can provide so many outlets for community participation by our participants.Bruce’s generosity will provide funding for a wide range of community activities for our participants, and the very costly transportation program we support. We operate five handicapped-accessible vans to help disabled individuals with everything from shopping to attendance at cultural and educational events and employment opportunities.In my conversations with other leaders of non-profit organizations in our community, Bruce’s name is always at the forefront when it comes to seeking support for our various missions. But Bruce and Valenti Subaru provide so much more than monetary contributions. Valenti Subaru is a vital community source of dedicated volunteers. Bruce and the Valenti Subaru Team are the essence of community involvement, doing their best to respond to the needs and support the goals of non-profits in the Greater Westerly region. Bruce has dedicated countless hours as a leader in the Ocean Community Chamber of Commerce for years. He has donated his time, talent and treasure to our schools, food banks, homeless shelters, animal rescue efforts and many cultural institutions that add so much to the rich fabric that makes up our community. The Westerly area offers a desirable, enriching quality of life, and it is not an exaggeration to say that Bruce Morrow and Valenti Subaru play a vital role in ensuring that quality of life is accessible to all.

Valenti Subaru Keeps Its Neighbors Warm - SUSAN S

Bruce Morrow, General Manager at Valenti Subaru serves on the Board of Directors at the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center. Our agency can rely on his good judgment to help us make decisions that will benefit the community. Last month, Bruce unexpectedly dropped off boxes of blankets and socks for our clients. This thoughtful gesture exemplifies the way that Bruce, and Valenti Subaru do business - always in a generous and unassuming way. Winters in New England are cold and many of our clients struggle with heating bills. It is a luxury to have a new, warm blanket to keep oneself warm. A percentage of our clients are homeless. Can you imagine how happy they must feel to have warm socks? Valenti Subaru often donates in large ways. But, it is often the little things in life that make the biggest impact. Thank you Bruce Morrow and Valenti Subaru for remembering that the smallest act of kindness can go a long way.

THANK YOU for Adopting State Street School - Audrey F

It was an amazing moment when Bruce's email came to my inbox! During this Covid crisis our students and their teachers are facing unprecedented challenges. Subaru's Adopt a Classroom was an amazing opportunity for some of our teachers to get $500 in classroom supplies. As the principal, I knew our special education teachers and social worker needed engaging supplies to support our young elementary students, some who had been out of in person learning for more than a year. Thank you Valenti Subaru for thinking of the teachers at State Street School. Your gift goes a long way!!

Auto Dealer that gives back to the community - Daniel A

The management and support staff at Valenti Subaru are truly community-oriented. The staff members have been willing and extremely active participants in service organizations that include the Westerly Pawcatuck Chamber of Commerce (Bruce Morrow,President) and the Rotary Club of Westerly. While the volunteer staff are dedicated to the goals of such organizations, the management willingly provides financial backing for each and every event whenever solicited including a free car for a ‘Whole-in-one’ Annual Rotary Golf Outing. The company is likewise eager to assist at organization outings by providing an extensive charcoal grill as well as staff to handle the grilling. Always willing to ‘give back.’ As one drives around the Westerly community, it is quite apparent that the community appreciates the Valenti Company simply by counting the vast number of Subarus - both on the roads as well as in the various shopping center parking lots. They tend to ‘advertise’ themselves. It seems as though everyone must believe that the Subaru is a great car…and they are correct!

Subaru supports education!! - Bethany k

We are so grateful to Valenti Subaru for supporting St Michael School this year for one of our biggest fundraisers, the annual 5K. St Michael School is the only local private Catholic school around servicing preK through 8th grade. We do not receive any state or federal funding and therefore rely heavily on fundraising. Valenti Subaru was so generous to support the St Michael's students education. We are so grateful for their kindness and generosity as a platinum sponsor!!! We understand how tough it has been for businesses during the COVID 19 pandemic however Valenti Subaru's generosity is unfailing. Please make sure to give back to Valenti Subaru by supporting their business as they care and support our community in so many ways. Bethany Kennedy

Valenti Subaru Loves Pets ~ Just as Much as We Do! - Deb T

Bruce Morrow and everyone at Valenti Subaru – thank you for choosing Stand Up For Animals in Westerly as a participant in your Subaru Loves Pets Campaign! We have had the opportunity to work with Valenti Subaru since 2017 and the relationship and support only continues to grow. Bruce Morrow, General Sales Manager, has and continues to make a tremendous positive impact in our local community. His support of local non-profits, as well as the individual members, is like no other and he is to be commended on many levels. He’s always ready to lend a helping hand and never without a smile! Their Subaru Loves Pets showroom donation drives have provided food, fun dog toys, and basic necessities for many animals. We are honored to have Valenti Subaru as a major part of our community. In 2020 and again in 2021, this collaboration expanded to include an October promotion that donates funds for every dog or cat adoption occurring at the shelter. Part of our vision at Stand Up For Animals is to create a place where animals will be treated with compassion and dignity, and where suffering and abuse will not be tolerated. We are proud to have Valenti Subaru in our corner helping us achieve our vision! We are humbled and grateful that Valenti Subaru has selected Stand Up For Animals as part of their Subaru Loves Pets event. To Bruce Morrow and to Valenti Subaru and its employees – thank you for caring about the non-profit organizations, animals and humans in our community!

VALENTI SUBARU TAKES CARE OF ITS NEIGHBORS - Susan S

Last year the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center (PNC) was honored to be the recipient of its Share the Love campaign. That money was used to provide basic human essentials, including food and heat, to our neighbors. Valenti Subaru continues to support the PNC through Bruce Morrow who is an active board member. Bruce is prepared to get the job done - even when that means bringing his own grill to a picnic fundraiser, and grilling the burgers and dogs himself. This year, Bruce and Joel Valenti were instrumental in helping the PNC to purchase a 12 passenger, handicap accessible bus for our Senior Transportation program. This program provides free, door-to-door transportation to medical appointments, grocery shopping and rides to the PNC Food Pantry and Senior Center. We are grateful to Valenti Subaru for sharing in our mission of "neighbors helping neighbors". They go above and beyond to take care of the most vulnerable in our community.
