In honor of Subaru Loves the Earth month, Burke Subaru team members and representatives from Subaru of America's Eastern Region – PHL Zone headed to the beaches of Avalon early one April Saturday morning to participate in Avalon's yearly dune grass planting. Each year, the borough of Avalon holds this event in which volunteers span the beaches and plant dune grass for coastal sustainability. The dune grass serves as a line of defense against storm surges and limits coastal flooding, as well as holds the sand in place to avoid beach erosion.

A dream is a wish..... - Phillip B

The tail of Adrianne Never underestimate the power of a kind deed. Adrianne "the cat" came to the Humane Society of Ocean City NJ shelter under unfortunate circumstances. With a whole lot of love, patience and the help of our friends @ Burke Subaru, together, we made this wish come true. She was featured during a Subaru Loves Pets giving event and not only did the shelter receive a much needed and appreciated donation ADRIANNE FOUND A HOME.... ....and they all lived happily ever after Here is the featured post that help Adrianne find her home: Meet Adrianne! Adrianne came to the Humane Society of Ocean City after her owner passed away and the family was not able to care for her. The HSOCNJ picked her up to try and get her into an appropriate home. She is very shy, but loves to be pet and brushed. The stress of the shelter keeps her hiding under her blanket throughout the day. She needs a home without other cats or with a single cat that isn’t going to bother her (her previous family said the cats picked on her), and without dogs or kids. She is a very sweet cat and is sure to be a great companion to the right home.
