Subaru and Diehl Subaru of Massillon believe in making a positive impact on the communities in which we live and work. We uphold that belief through our Love Promise Community Commitment. Every month, we select inspiring stories from customers and partners from around our area who strive to support our collective commitment and feature them here.
Diehl Subaru has gone above and beyond with supporting local nonprofits. Fundraising has become very tough for some of the smaller organizations like The Perry History Club. When Dustin reached out to let Perry History Club know they had been selected as the nonprofit of the month of September it could not have come at a better time. Our ADA bathroom project had cost overruns of $1,900 and we were working on how we were going to fund the overrun and finish our project. We needed the bathroom complete so we can get our occupancy permit and open to the public at the 1893 one room schoolhouse that we are restoring! Thank you Diehl Subaru for giving back to the Perry Township community and be an amazing blessing to our organization!
Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health (C&A) is proud to continue to partner with Diehl Subaru. This past year. Diehl Subaru has been the title sponsor of the agency's Mike Flood Endowment Fund Reverse Raffle and a sponsor of the agency's annual Let Your Light Shine event. Diehl Subaru's support of youth mental health continues to support the agency's many programs and services C&A provides to more than 4,100 clients each year. The agency is extremely lucky to have community partners like Diehl Subaru who support the community. We enjoy working with Dustin Shahan and his team! Thank you again for helping improve the lives of Stark County's youth and adolescent.
Throughout the year, Diehl Subaru is a generous supporter to many wonderful, local community programs. Perry Helping Perry was selected for the month August. With a great appreciation, we accepted a donation of $1,750. This will allow PHP to continue to meet the basic necessities of the Perry Township community with food, clothing, school supplies and transportation.
Our history reflects our hearts. Whispering Grace Horses, Inc. was founded by Bill and Marcia Shearer over 10 years ago. Starting an equine and human relationship program for youth, their families and anyone who wants to come was a natural for Bill and Marcia who have been involved professionally as Stark County educators for over sixty years and have been horse enthusiasts since their youth. They have witnessed first hand the devastation of young people struggling with relationships and broken families. Throughout their lives they have recognized the ability of horses to partner up with humans and ”heal” the spirit. They established Whispering Grace Horses in 2012, which is an equine and human relationship program serving the greater Stark County Community. Whispering Grace Horses is designed for just about everyone. From foster children and children in need to adults, veterans, and families whose lives need something that is missing. That missing link, as irrational as it may sound, may end up being one of our equine counselors. We have a strategic partnership with Pathway Caring for children who service over 700 families in the areas of counseling, foster children, and adoptions. We also continue to have a strategic partnership with Weaver Leather, The Kimble Companies, Ventrac and the Toro Company. Children and Veterans find the relationship with our horses to be similar to that of their own personal relationships. Horses are so intuitive, they know everything about you, and they never forget you. The challenge is to develop a trusting relationship with your horse, which in many ways brings out lessons about our own relationships and helps our children and veterans learn new ways of being in a relationship. Through the horse and human interaction, children and veterans can relearn how to recognize their feelings, regulate emotions, and better communicate, as well as build trust and come to trust themselves again. We work on patience, bonding, setting boundaries, leadership, responsibility and establishing healthy relationships. During the sessions, the children and veterans work with the horses from the ground, grooming, feeding and learning how to handle, lead and interact with the horse appropriately and effectively. Teaching our children and veterans how to communicate with their horse through body language, energy and pressure lets them develop a greater capacity for empathy, social-awareness and self awareness. Our program presents an opportunity to communicate with another beating heart (the horse) that will not judge or criticize and only show comfort given the right circumstances. Because horses are non-judgemental, they help people open up in ways that traditional therapy cannot. Children and veterans often report that it helps reduce stress, increase confidence, and improves their ability to trust others. Thank you so much for the opportunity to partner with Diehl Subaru. Your donation helps us to continue our mission of providing HOPE to all who come to the farm. Together we can make a difference and Diehl Subaru has definitely helped us at Whispering Grace Horses to continue our programs and help us to change lives. Please feel free to call and set up an appointment to visit the farm. You can find more information at www.whisperinggracehorses.org and also follow us on facebook.
We inquired with Diehl Subaru this summer to see if we could use their showroom for the community to drop off school supplies for Perry Helping Perry's Back Pack Giveaway. Diehl not only said yes, but also purchased two tables full of school supplies. With the help of Diehl and the community, we were able to pick up two car of loads of supplies to help fill 306 back packs.
The Legacy Project of Stark just wants to "Thank" Diehl Subaru for choosing our non profit to receive funds for the month of May.

The American Heart Association was honored to be part of the Diehl Charity of the month program. They generously donated $1400 to help improve the heart health of the Stark County community and help the AHA provide CPR/AED education. We are very grateful for Diehl and the "heart" they have for the community.

Diehl Automotive of Massillon was kind enough to pay for a TEAM sponsorship for our town of East Canton's Little Hornets football league. This means so much to our community, our kids, and our program. The Little Hornets Football league offers so much to our adolescent children. They teach teamwork, bravery, work ethic, what family is and so much more. Thank you so much Diehl Automotive of Massillon!!!

The Stark County Humane Society has proudly serviced Stark County for over 100 years! We continue to speak for those that cannot speak for themselves. The Stark County Humane Society's mission is to protect unwanted animals from cruelty and neglect, and to provide them with safe housing while awaiting placement in a permanent and loving home. In 2022, we serviced 3,691 animals. This would not be possible without the support such as the support of Subaru and Diehl's Subaru. One person makes a difference but a team makes an impact.
We are so happy to be paired up with Diehl's Subaru of Massillon. We receive most of our furry friends from families that are no longer able to care for them. Carl was surrendered due to his family's health issues. He was a 9 month old Bichon/ Shih Tzu mix. With the help of Diehl's Subaru Adoption Event, we were able to find him a forever new home.
Diehl Subaru of Massillon selected Refuge of Hope Ministries as the charity of the month promising $25 for every new Subaru sold in February. They kept their promise and delivered a check for $1600 all because their customers love Subaru! That love is passed on through hot, nutritious meals; warm, safe, shelter for homeless men; clothing, medical care, and HOPE for our neighbors (men, women, and children) who visit Refuge of Hope. That's a lot of love! Thank you!
Homeless men, and hungry men, women, and children come to Refuge of Hope Ministries in Canton, Ohio for shelter, meals, clothing, medical care, and HOPE. During the winter months, getting to Refuge of Hope can be a cold, soggy walk, a puddle-filled bike ride, or a bus ride from one side town to another. Many of our guests arrive with cold, wet feet after trudging through the snow and rain and waiting on piles of slushy snow at the bus stop. Diehl Subaru of Massillon demonstrated how they see the needs of our neighbors by donating 1000 pairs of warm, dry socks and $25 for every new Subaru sold in February totaling nearly $1,000...and that was just this year! The Subaru family has provided much needed blankets in the past, too. Highly rated vehicles bought by loyal customers from thoughtful staff make for more comfortable, happy neighbors. Thank you, Diehl Subaru of Massillon, for seeing our neighbors, loving them, and giving them HOPE with every pair of new socks! #SubaruLovesToHelp and everyone at Refuge of Hope is thankful! 💜🧡
From Unwanted to Happily ever after! We had eight unwanted puppies come in to the Stark County Humane Society. Through the generous donations from our community and our vet, we were able to spay, neuter, as well as microchipped and current on age appropriate vaccinations. With the amazing partnership of Diehl"s Subaru, we were able to find loving homes for all eight of our puppies no matter what their breed. We would like to Thank Diehl's Subaru for their continuous support.
Perry Helping Perry (PHP) is a 501c3 non-profit dedicated to helping the people of Perry Township who need help with day to day living. We provide groceries from our food pantry twice a month, we take in donated bicycles and repair them to give to kids and families in Perry who can't afford one. We have a clothes closet where qualified residents can receive free clothes. Diehl Subaru has helped us immensely with these programs by accepting bikes and food donations from the community. We have received financial support directly through the Subaru Share the Love Event. Without the help of Diehl Subaru we could not do what we do. In the last two years we have received and donated back over 500 bikes. Dustin has been so gracious to allow us to store bikes until we are ready to pick them up. One other program that Diehl Subaru has helped us with is our back to school program. We are able to provide school age kids a new back pack filled with age appropriate school supplies at the beginning of each school year. Diehl has been instrumental in supplying PHP with back packs and supplies to allow us to distribute over 200 back packs. They also serve as a drop off location for non-perishable food items for our food pantry. We have been able to provide food twice monthly to over 150 families, representing over 500 people. Attached are some photos of food, bikes and more from Diehl Subaru.

Hunter came to us in July of 2022. His family wasn’t able to give him the proper attention. Hunter is about 8-9 yrs old so he was a senior fella looking for his new family. He is a very sweet fella that loves to play with toys and to go for walks. On October 25th he finally found his free ride. He is living his best life now, and goes on a lot of rides with his new family. Thank you, Subaru, for your support!

She is on the road to healing and found her happily ever after with a new family. Thanks for the support, Subaru!
