Ramsey Subaru supports the community through continued partnership with the Iowa Cubs. The Iowa Cubs provide great summertime family entertainment in the heart of downtown Des Moines.

Father Daughter Dedication - Cara I

Scott and his team continue year after year supporting the Southeast Polk community district. They never waiver in their dedication to make our annual Father Daughter Dance a success. Every year Scott Long makes amazing donations to our raffle where dads along with their daughters test their luck. Our dance is not just a dance. These little girls look forward to this every year. It's a community event where all girls aged preschool to sixth grade are invited to attend with their special person. The raffle is the most exciting event and would not be successful without the partnership of businesses like this. The Clay PTA board could not be more grateful for their continued support in our community and by helping put smiles on so many little girls faces (along with their dads).

Central Iowa Shelter & Services received a huge sock donation from Ramsey Subaru! - Melissa A

Central Iowa Shelter & Services (CISS) has a constant need for socks. In the wintertime, we go through approximately 200 pairs per day! The unsheltered population will stop in to pick up new socks from CISS, even if they choose not to stay, because keeping feet dry and warm not only prevents frostbite but also will prevent individuals from freezing directly to the ground. The Ramsey Subaru sock donation will go far in saving both clients limbs and lives. Thank you Ramsey Subaru!

Mason Kerr Racing - Mason K

Ramsey Subaru was generous enough to donate a vehicle for me to travel in this season for the 2023 Monster Energy Supercross Series. This is allowing me to have one of my best seasons yet, by taking the stress of a vehicle breakdown out of the picture. I can’t thank Scott, Jason and their entire crew at Ramsey Subaru enough for their support. Good support is not easy to come by and I’m glad to have crossed paths with them. For them to back me, a kid from Altoona, Iowa. Shows that they don’t just care about selling cars, but also about their reputation in their community.

Racing to Make a Difference - Chris R

At Riverside Raceway when the helmets come off, the community comes together. Because of the generous support of Ramsey Subaru the events at Riverside Raceway don't stop when the final checkered flag falls. Instead, families gather around the infield and participate in many family-friendly, free, fun events. Whether it is mini bike races, cornhole tournaments, live entertainment, or an Easter bunny hosting an egg hunt; the families all come together to create memories for a lifetime. The race track suffered major damage in 2022 just before the season, and since then Ramsey has went above and beyond to continue to help rebuild and improve infrastructures that were damaged or completely lost in the storm. The sponsorship from Ramsey Subaru helped keep the facility going and continues to invest in the community across the state. Ramsey supporting the local racers who are positive role models, the events, and the race tracks is a blessing beyond words.

We are so thankful for the donation of blankets and craft kits for patients at John Stoddard Cancer Center and Blank Children's Hospital through the Subaru Loves to Care program.

Mason Kerr Racing - Mason K

When my fuel sponsor backed out and I was faced with a difficult situation in the middle of the Monster Energy Supercross season, I reached out to Ramsey Subaru in hopes of them being in the position to help me. Not only did they extend a helping hand. They were also able to become the cosponsor of a prestigious local amateur motocross in Winterset, Iowa known as the Justin Brayton Shootout. Ramsey Subaru has stepped up in more ways than one for me and there’s no doubt that they care about the community and are willing to step up to the plate when it comes to supporting citizens actively involved in events locally or nationally. That is why I choose to refer friends to Ramsey Subaru.

Justin Brayton Shootout - Chris R

Riverside Raceway is one of the region's best motocross facilities and attracts racers from around the country each year. But more importantly, it is a staple in the local riding and racing community and gives Iowa's up and coming talent a place to hone their skills and make a name for themselves. This spring an F4 tornado traveled across Madison County and completely leveled Riverside Raceway just a month before the season was set to open. Track owner Tony Wenck's acreage and home that sits adjacent to the race track was completely leveled to only a hole in the ground where his basement sheltered his wife and daughters whom luckily made it out alive. While already being involved with supporting the local racing community, Ramsey Subaru insisted they do more to ensure the race track could open and operate for the season. A generous donation of sponsorship and support was just the boost that was needed to make sure the race track could not only open, but events like the Justin Brayton Shootout can continue to thrive. Due to Ramsey's support, the head of RacerX; the sport's largest publication and founder of MX Sports that hosts the Pro Motocross series in America as well as the Amateur Nationals was able to travel to Iowa to witness the event and feature the race track in an up and coming issue. Ramsey Subaru isn't just part of the local motocross community, they saved the season for many racers who rely on Riverside Raceway opening their gates.

Trees for Everyone - Scott H

The trees here in Urbandale, and throughout much of the state of Iowa, have had a hard couple of years. The loss of our urban canopy continues to be an issue as we have dealt with everything from the invasive emerald ash borer to some amazing storms including the 2020 derecho. The city of Urbandale has been looking for ways to help replenish the trees along our beautiful trail system and the Ramsey Subaru Team is stepping up to help us do that. Not only are they making a great donation to purchase a large number of trees to plant in our timber areas along some of our creeks and trails; they are also bringing the labor to get them in the ground!! Both of these items, dollars and labor, are always great to have and it is even more impressive when someone comes in and has both. We will be planting over 100 trees this spring with the Ramsey Group that will provide great benefits to our natural habitat as well as our future generations of trail users. A big thank you to the group for looking out for our trails in Urbandale!!!!
