DeVoe Subaru of Naples and RCMA - Jay R

On August 8th. Emily Reed from DeVoe Subaru and other staff visited RCMA in Immokalee and delivered backpacks and school supplies.

The staff from DeVoe also observed our children learning in the classroom, enjoying nutritional snacks, and playing on the playground. On behalf of RCMA, I personally want to thank DeVoe Subaru of Naples for the backpacks and school supplies that were provided for our students at the Immokalee Community Academy. The notebooks, markers, writing supplies, and other miscellaneous items were a huge benefit for our students. The students were happy and grateful to receive the items at the beginning of the school year.

Helping fill in the gaps! - Emily R

This August, Subaru of Naples adopted 10 Classrooms at Naples Park Elementary through AdoptAClassroom.org. Subaru of Naples is proud to be able to support Naples Park Elementary school by funding the purchase of supplies, materials and tools needed to help their students learn and succeed. “The teachers that applied for the grant with us are so excited, because it gave them the opportunity to get a little more creative outside the traditional resources they have and really expand on the lessons they want to do with their kids. It’s really increasing the level of rigor and the learning that’s going to be happening and giving them the tools and resources to do that!” explained Katie Maya Principal at Naples Park Elementary. According to a study by AdoptAClassroom.org, 92% of classrooms have students whose families cannot afford school supplies. Educators fill the gap, spending an average of $750 a year out of their own pockets. “I think this program and a lot of our other community partners, really help to make sure the kids in this community are well taken care of. We absolutely have kids that come ready with the school supplies and we always have that handful that don’t. So if we can fill that gap to make sure all of our kids have absolutely everything they need, because yes absolutely our teachers go into their own pockets consistently to make sure there are no gaps for the kids and they can all have the best educational experience and they do it to enrich their lessons as well” added Katie Maya Thank you Naples Park Elementary for supporting, educating and enriching the youth of Collier County!

Subaru of Naples Celebrates Earth Day - Emily R

Subaru of Naples celebrated Earth Day and Subaru Loves the Earth, the entire month of April by giving each customer, who purchased or leased a new or used vehicle and service customers, a tree to take home to plant. Subaru of Naples had a variety of palms and hibiscus trees that were purchased from a local nursery for customers to choose from. “We wanted to celebrate Earth Day by giving our customers a tree that would benefit the environment, look beautiful and give back to our community” explained Rich DeVoe, General Sales Manager for Subaru of Naples. When people plant trees they are doing more than just beautifying an area. Trees are beneficial to the environment in numerous ways. They help produce oxygen and filter out pollutants to clean the air. In addition, trees also help preserve water levels in the soil. Planting a tree in one’s own yard is the obvious solution when it comes to where to plant. Fruit and shade trees are a good choice when deciding the type of trees to plant. When planted in the right location, shade trees can help keep a home cool and reduce energy costs.

Providing diapers to low-income families - Jean Ann L

Baby Basics is a simple program that provides diapers to babies from low-income families who are working and do not receive federal or state cash assistance. We give diapers and kindness. To a family struggling to make ends meet we are a helping hand not a hand out. Our families tell us: “Knowing I can count on diapers for my baby every month gives me PEACE”. In today’s difficult world what a gift. Families tell us they use the money formally spent on diapers to buy food. One mom said, “ I could buy my babies some new t-shirts.” Diapers are expensive and so if we can help families provide the necessities for a baby, we know the baby will be healthier and happier with less chance of diaper rash and infections. Thank you Subaru for helping us to make a difference in the lives of these innocent babies. Jean Ann Lynch President


Restoring Christmas Joy to over 200 Children - Skip R

Dear Collier County, All of us at Bikes For Tykes, Inc. want to wish you a Merry Christmas. With all the problems that the virus has presented, I feel the need to let you know, how we were able to make Christmas happen for hundreds of children in Collier County. You may or may not know, that there was no 'Toys For Tots' or Salvation Army Toy give-away this year. Because of this, smaller charities had to step up and try to fulfill the Christmas requests. The pandemic also impacted smaller charities such as Bikes For Tykes, Inc. by way of loss of donations, which allow us to do our work for children. Our goal was to purchase 200 new bikes, which was a small dent in the need (the first week we received over 5,000 application), but we were determined and needed financial help from an “angel” to purchase the bikes. Then 'who to my wondering eyes did appear, but Subaru of Naples with hearts full of cheer', let us help, relieve your plight' so we may fill Santa's Sleigh Christmas Night. How the elves of Bikes For Tykes loved it, as they continued to work with glee, making all the bikes for boys and girls to put under the Christmas Tree. Kind of sounds familiar doesn't it? Bikes For Tykes, is incredibly THANKFUL to Subaru of Naples for their financial help. With every new or used Subaru sold, they donated a BRAND NEW bicycle to Bikes For Tykes, Inc. It truly was a 'Magical Christmas Gift'. The virus Grinch was thwarted and all the children of WHOVILLE (Collier County) will be able to have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS. From all of us at Bikes For Tykes, Inc, Merry Christmas to all and to Subaru of Naples a Good Night Sincerely, Skip Riffle, Head Elf and the 'unsung heroes' of Bikes For Tykes, Inc. Bikes for Tykes mission is to ensure every child in Collier County has a bicycle. Founded in 1987, in Naples, FL, Bikes for Tykes® was developed from the simple idea that any child with a bicycle on their Christmas wish list should receive that all empowering and memorable gift, even if their family cannot afford one. The first child to have his Christmas wish granted was Joshua, age 6. His name was on a paper angel at a local restaurant that was trying to help some local, underprivileged children and have a Christmas they would not otherwise have. Joshua received his reconditioned bike and thus the Bikes for Tykes, Inc. program was born. Since then, close to 19,000 children in the Naples area has received a bright and shiny reconditioned bicycle. At Bikes for Tykes Inc., in Naples, Florida, we sand away the old paint; then primer and repaint the bikes with the current popular colors. We strip the rust from old wheels, replace the old worn tires, pedals, grips and anything else which will make the bike safe and new looking again. BIKES FOR TYKES has become one of the truest forms of “recycling.”
