Vic Bailey Subaru Shares the Love Through Smiles - Kathleen C

In a year that the world stood still. Uncertainty overwhelmed many. Many families had to rethink finances and many times health care was put to the side. During the pandemic it was even more important than ever to protect and take care of ourselves and proper oral hygiene is high on the list. Super-hero and past chairman of Healthy Smiles of Spartanburg, Vic Bailey, IV, through the Subaru Love Promise, committed to continuously serve the children of our community with sponsoring our first ever Smile-A-Thon (telethon). Vic Bailey Subaru’s $10,000 sponsorship inspired others to help leverage $137,117 towards Healthy Smiles dental programs. Funding gave 580 low-income, uninsured children smiles during a pandemic by providing much needed dental care; over 32,114 children were encouraged to improve their oral health by receiving the proper tools (toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss, and mouthwash) grab bags at school and community events; 58,480 children and families learned about proper oral health and what it means to your overall health through Healthy Smiles outreach program. Vic Bailey and his family didn’t stop there, no sir, the miles and miles of heart this family possesses hosted the most fun interactive toothpaste drive https://www.vicbaileysubaru.com/smile-drive.htm. The creative staff created “Mr. Tooth” for perspective customers, vendors, and staff the opportunity to provide low-income families with toothpaste. The grace and compassion the Bailey family and their staff provide to our community impacts the lives of so many families in so many positive measurable ways. THANK YOU Vic Bailey Subaru for sharing the LOVE.

Flowcoaster Addition to VBS Bike Park - Emi B

Since the opening of the Vic Bailey Subaru Bike Park at the Rail Yard, many community members have voiced their support and their enthusiasm to have a new recreation destination. This would not have been possible without the help of Vic Bailey Subaru. In late May, Vic Bailey Subaru offered their support, once again, as we added a new kid-friendly track to the bike park. The flowcoaster will allow younger kids to use the bike park as they develop their bike riding skills. Leslie Bailey Calicutt and Emily Weaver helped us by providing snacks and water for our volunteers who helped make this new addition possible. Thank you Vic Bailey Subaru for your continued support and helping make Spartanburg a healthier, more active community.

TerraCycle Success! - Bonnie W

For the past two years Spartanburg Day School has partnered with Vic Bailey Subaru to divert snack wrappers from the landfill through the TerraCycling Program. Subaru generously pays the $50 shipping fee for each box of snack wrappers we collect. We have returned at least 10 full boxes to TerraCycle, recycling thousands of snack wrappers in the past two years. Recently, Subaru donated a beautiful Adirondack chair made from TerraCycle snack wrappers to our school. Given the amount of time we have spent outdoors this year, we are especially grateful for this new addition to our campus! We look forward to continuing our partnership with Vic Bailey Subaru next year.

TerraCycle Success!

Vic Bailey Subaru Enhances Community Trail - Lamar B

Partnering with Vic bailey Subaru for the construction of the Vic Bailey Subaru Bike Park in Spartanburg, South Carolina was such a BLAST!! My name is Lamar Baehr and I am a volunteer board member with the Coalition for Active Youth. Our organization supports community and alternative outdoor recreation for youth. Our projects include the Hot Spot Skate Park, the Rail Tail Dog Park, and the Vic Bailey Subaru Bike Park. Having a major donor and partner like Vic Bailey Subaru is critical to a major project. The team at Vic Bailey Subaru is thoroughly ensconced, emotionally and financially, in the Spartanburg community. When the Rail Tail Dog Park opened years ago, they were there cheering the community on and giving out pet accessories. Vic Bailey Subaru was engaged, helpful and easy to work with during the bike park project – genuinely interested is the best description! They generously donated $25,000 to the project. And, even after the Bike Park was completed, Vic Bailey Subaru is at it again, working with businesses around the Mary Black Rail Trail to expand community recycling efforts with TerraCycle. TerraCycle takes items that are normally hard-to-recycle, such as k-cups, disposable cups and lids, snack wrappers and turns them into quality items - park benches, bike racks, etc. After the recycling is well underway, Vic Bailey Subaru will gift the bike park with a TerraCycle bike rack which costs about $1,400. Again, THANK YOU to Vic Bailey Subaru for trusting the Coalition for Active Youth and Partners for Active Living in this wonderful project It looks great and it rides great!!!


Sharing the Love with SCC - Mark S

Training future automotive technicians is tough job. The technology is ever-changing and equipment is expensive, which makes the need to keep new products and technology in front of students especially challenging. Fortunately, the Automotive Department at Spartanburg Community College has support from local dealerships like Spartanburg’s Bailey family, who have been instrumental in beginning and maintaining the SCC’s automotive program. Vic Bailey Subaru recently donated two continuously variable transmissions for use in automotive classrooms, providing students real-world equipment on which to learn. In addition to this generous donation, Vic Bailey Subaru also provides students with cooperative work experience opportunities, allowing them to work with experienced technicians in an apprenticeship learning environment. This hands-on experience, along with an education and training from SCC, is crucial for the development of skills required of today’s technicians. The dealership’s support doesn’t end in the classroom. In fact, after graduating from SCC, many automotive technician students receive full time positions with Vic Bailey Automotive, that include competitive pay and world-class training opportunities. Given the current shortage of automotive technicians across the United States, SCC students are fortunate to receive opportunities while in college and post-graduation. However, to ensure that this talent pipeline continues, even more partnerships between education and industry are needed to continue filling this auto industry gap. Spartanburg Community College is fortunate to have supportive partners like Vic Bailey Subaru, working alongside our faculty and administration to ensure the education of future generations of automotive technician continues.

Sharing the Love with Kindergarten Students - Leslie C

After connecting with Mary H. Wright Elementary from years of donating the award-winning science books to the school and reading to classes during Subaru Loves Learning month, Vic Bailey Subaru decided to adopt a kindergarten class at the school. The dealership staff members have the best time planning holidays parties for the class which include food, drinks, and activities. Due to COVID-19, the dealership currently creates a "Party in a Box" for each occasion and drops it off at the school. The Valentine's Day Party included chocolate hearts, pretzels shaped like Xs and Os, pink and red M&Ms, cherry-flavored water, fruit snacks, Valentine's craft kits, and heart-shaped plates and napkins. Because of the generosity of Vic Bailey Subaru, these kindergarten students are able to feel the love all year long!
