Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Memphis - Ellen B

As a teenager, Keishuna not only needs to prepare for graduation she needs to prepare for life beyond high school, and she's not the only one. Even as employers struggle to fill open positions with skilled workers, the unemployment rate for teens and young adults in Memphis is three times higher than the national average. Your investment in the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Memphis puts Keishuna and the 2,100 other teens we serve each year on the path to a great future. We provide opportunities to develop crucial soft skills, gain certifications, explore careers, and learn on the job skills. Your generosity coupled with the programming at BGCM is setting them up for success. I would like to extend my gratitude for your gift of $3,000.00 in support of the 2022 Steak N' Burger Event. Thank you for helping to close the opportunity gap for youth, equipping the next generation with the resources and experiences they need to thrive in school, career, and life. Best regards, Keith Blanchard

Jim Keras Subaru Mentorship - Ellen H - Ellen H

Dear Mentor: Thank you very much for your willingness to take on one of our 8th grade students as an intern. We realize it takes some thoughtful planning on your part, and we appreciate your willingness to invest such considerable time and energy. In developing this project, it is our hope that Grace-St. Luke's students will have the opportunity to experience a few days in a profession of interest to them. As much as possible, we expect our students to undertake meaningful tasks within your organization and learn about the adult world of work We expect them to be prompt, dress appropriately, and contribute thoughtfully while they are in your place of business. Again, thank you for your generous gift of time.

TUNICA HUMANE SOCIETY - Jan C

Penelope was a stray young dog who was found in late August under an abandoned shed in a rural Mississippi town. She had just given birth to a litter of puppies and soon was rescued by the Tunica Humane Society. Because of a "honking" sound that she continued to make, she was taken immediately to a local vet to be examined. After she was seen, a decision was made to have further studies done by the Veterinary Staff at Mississippi State University. It was discovered that her snout was almost entirely crushed, and she is blind in one eye. The injuries were caused by blunt force trauma, but it was not known if this was from being struck by a car, or if she was deliberately struck by someone with a heavy object. The staff at MS State drained her blocked sinus passages and treated Penelope for a severe sinus infection. As Penelope continued to improve, the decision was made to return her to the shelter, but because she had to continue to be cared for and given medication, a lovely couple named Lisa and Pete stepped up to foster Penelope in their home. A few days later, a Tunica Humane Society friend told her friend Angie who lived in New Jersey about Penelope. Her friend told Angie that this was a beautiful dog who needed a forever home. After the adoption application was approved, arrangements were made to transport Penelope to New Jersey but, because of a medical emergency, the transport driver was unable to bring Penelope to New Jersey. Angie then decided to drive 1100 miles from New Jersey to Tunica to pick up Penelope who has been in her new home for about a week. Penelope is an awesome addition to her new family and she has two human sisters who are 9 years old and 6 years old. Penelope takes part in tea parties and in the evening, she probably hears dozens of bedtime stories. She has three cats and some guinea pigs to keep her company too. Her Mom Angie is thinking about getting Penelope certified as a funeral home therapy dog for those who are grieving the loss of deceased loved ones. Penelope was a pet that was adopted during October due to the wonderful exposure created by the Tunica Humane Society’s partner retailer, Jim Keras Subaru, Covington Pike and their promotion of Subaru Loves Pets month. Penelope arrived in New Jersey on Friday, Oct. 22 and this was the same day as Subaru’s “National Make A Dog’s Day”. We believe this date will forever be a significant day in Penelope’s life and her adoptive family. Subaru, you truly made their day! At a time when adoptions are down throughout our community, we believe this promotion significantly impacted our adoption rate so much that we had nineteen adoptions this month. Who would ever anticipate that an injured dog from a small town in Mississippi would ever have such an impact on so many lives? There is a saying "Love lives at the Tunica Humane Society" but we believe that adopters such as Angie and her new pet Penelope show us that love has no boundaries. Thank you, Jim Keras Subaru, Covington Pike and the entire Subaru corporation for remembering the underdogs and cats of this world!

Beating Cancer Is In Our Blood - Fatemeh D

On June 13, we all joined together virtually across the country as ONE LLS to climb the same number of steps that would take us to the top of San Francisco’s iconic Salesforce Tower. 61 stories. 1,762 steps. And if you don’t have access to stairs, that height equals 600 chair step-ups or 8,810 walking strides. Thank you, Jim Keras Subaru Covington Pike for being a sponsor for our event and adapting to the safety and changes during Covid. Thank you from all of us at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society!
