Creating a Pathway to Car Ownership - Devin W

Refill Jackson Initiative’s mission is to empower young adults so that they are more equipped and motivated to enter the workforce and be self-sufficient. After completing our program, graduates report feeling more equipped to get and keep a job, manage their money, and communicate professionally–and they leave Refill with a clear plan for their future. A barrier that many of our members and graduates continue to struggle with is access to reliable transportation, which often hinders their overall success—not just in work but in life. To address this barrier, we work with our members on developing a plan for car ownership. Our partnership with Paul Moak Subaru is essential in making this possible. By providing our members with trustworthy and expert knowledge, representatives from Paul Moak help our members begin the process of purchasing their first vehicle. The informational sessions provided by John Scarbrough of Paul Moak not only help our members make a realistic plan for purchasing a vehicle but also empowers them to navigate a pathway to car ownership with a sense of confidence and personal agency. Refill Jackson is tremendously greatly for our community partnership with Paul Moak Subaru and look forward to our continued collective efforts in erasing barriers to employment for young adults in Jackson.

NJE Loves Learning and Paul Moak Subaru - Dawn J

North Jackson Elementary teachers were recently gifted $3000 through Adopt-A-Classroom.org by Paul Moak Subaru. These funds not only helped supplement the educational materials in classrooms but also provided a keyboard for the music teacher, making a positive impact on every scholar in our school. These materials support and enhance the learning of our scholars, helping them to reach their full potential. Not only were teachers able to purchase needed materials through Adopt-A-Classroom.org, but were given several PPE and cleaning supplies to help ensure our classrooms are safe learning environments for all of our school family. The notes from the Paul Moak employees and customers are a constant encouragement. We are truly grateful for the generous support of our friends at Paul Moak Subaru!

Walk & Roll for Research - Chris B

For four consecutive years, Paul Moak Subaru has served as a key sponsor of Methodist Rehabilitation Center's Walk & Roll for Research, a unique event in Mississippi for persons living with paralysis and other disabling conditions after a stroke, spinal cord injury or brain injury. Friends and families of these persons form teams and walk (and roll) in their honor. Funds raised go toward research projects, advanced therapy equipment and education events for the rehab center, which is located just two miles from Paul Moak Subaru. This support has literally helped people walk again after intensive rehab and technology. The 2021 Walk & Roll raised over $94,000 thanks to Paul Moak and other generous sponsors, and the dealership is a wonderful community partner. In fact, there is no other automotive dealership in central Mississippi who supports our rehab center as does Paul Moak Subaru. They give back to many good local causes and we are so appreciative for their attention and focus on our work. Their reputation for community involvement is rivaled only by their commitment to customer service (I'm among their many happy customers).

Paul Moak Cycles for Cancer - Martha H

For almost 20 years, Paul Moak Subaru has partnered with Cyclists Curing Cancer Century Ride to help raise funds for Mississippi Baptist Medical Center's oncology patients. It is evident that Paul Moak's sponsorship of the event is more than just a monetary donation. Year after year, Paul Moak, himself, has hopped on his bike to pedal alongside the hundreds of other riders whose participation helps provide necessary resources for those battling cancer. Paul Moak and his team truly embody what it means to be a real community partner and are making a positive difference in our area. Mississippi Baptist Medical Center is very grateful for Mr. Moak’s community-minded spirit, the encouragement he shows to other cyclists, and his dedication to the cancer patients at Baptist. THANK YOU, Paul Moak Subaru!


Supporting Mission First's Ministries - Audry E

Paul Moak Subaru has been a sponsor for many of Mission First's fundraising events. One of the most recent events Mission First held was their annual Sporting Clay Shoot at Providence Hill Farm in Jackson, MS. The turn out for the event was excellent, and all of the proceeds benefited Mission First's ministries. On many occasions, a representative from Paul Moak has visited campus to distribute items to Mission First's youth in its after school and summer programs. Most recently, Paul Moak Subaru staff visited their main campus to distribute individually gift-wrapped gifts—made by local business Buff City Soap and benefiting Friends of Children's Hospital—to their summer middle school and high school students. The Mission First staff and students were very appreciative of the gifts! When corporate sponsors such as Paul Moak Subaru give to Mission First, they are helping to support a ministry where children can attend after school programs and hear the gospel message while building foundational, long-lasting relationships with Mission First staff. These students are given a unique opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally by being a part of Mission First's programs, and so they are grateful for Paul Moak Subaru's generosity!

A Win-Win for Kids! - Rebecca M

Paul Moak Subaru was delighted to spread some rainbow-themed fun to two of our favorite charities supporting children in Mississippi. Throughout the month of May, local business Buff City Soap created a special scent of rainbow bath bombs and soaps for Friends of Children's Hospital, Paul Moak Subaru's hometown charity partner for the annual Subaru Share the Love Event. The dealership enjoyed a shopping spree of sorts, not only supporting a local business but also helping Friends of Children's Hospital raise additional funds. There was no question where to share the fun rainbow items--we knew the students at Mission First, an inner city after-school and summer camp ministry for youth would love them! Paul Moak has been a longtime supporter of Mission First and our staff had a rewarding afternoon visiting the campus and sharing individually gift-wrapped bath bombs and soaps with the campers. We call this a true "win-win," supporting two of our favorite charities supporting children in our state!

Inspiring Children to Let Their Imagination Roll! - Rebecca M

What happens when our children are free to imagine they can be anything? When a child attends Touch A Truck ® Jackson, they’re inspired to be everything they can be. Celebrating its 8th year, Touch A Truck ® Jackson, is a fun and educational experience intended to spark creativity and inspire our young learners to walk confidently in the pursuit of their dreams. Paul Moak Subaru has been a corporate sponsor of Touch A Truck ® Jackson since its first year in 2014! Thank you for your continued partnership in investing in our children and making a positive impact in our communities. For 2021 the virtual format of the event allowed children to see and experience the exhibits like never before! Not to mention free access to reach thousands more than in years past. Children were able to spend the morning exploring vehicles of all kinds – from dump trucks to fire trucks and even storm chasers – enjoying the best Mississippi has to offer. The fun didn't stop there! For the first year STEM kits were available for purchase so that students could interact with the video in real-time, teaching them to think critically, constructively, and creatively. Touch A Truck® Jackson continued to offer Field Trip Friday, an opportunity for school groups to attend the event virtually with a learning resource guide provided. Every school in Mississippi was invited to participate in Field Trip Friday, but don’t let state borders stop you—this resource is a free tool can be made available in English to educators world-wide! Second grade students will have a memorable field trip experience filled with opportunities to learn, explore, and celebrate reading. The video allows students to get up close and personal with the vehicles they love to see on the road or in the field, including construction and utility trucks, ambulances, diggers, commercial farm equipment, and many more! They will also get to meet foresters, emergency personnel, linemen, construction workers, truck drivers, and other community helpers that keep our world turning behind the wheel. Though the event looked different this year, the spirit and purpose remain the same, and the footprint of lives touched was larger than ever before! If we can inspire a child to broaden their imagination and encourage their dreams, then we have been successful! The Subaru Love Promise commitment is on full display with Paul Moak Subaru's 8 years of supporting Touch A Truck ® Jackson. Thank you for the impact on countless students throughout the Jackson Metro and beyond!
