Bridgewater, N.J. (April 27, 2017) Located in Somerset, NJ Victory Subaru donated $30,000
grant to Visions and Pathways. The donation is part of Subaru’s annual Share the Love
campaign.

“Victory Subaru’s generosity is remarkable,” said David Walker, Visions and Pathways’ CEO.
“The donation will be used to support our Street Smart outreach and Prosperity independent
living skills programs” Walker continued.

Through grassroots outreach, Street Smart identifies youth who are experiencing a crisis at
home or at school – kids who are at great risk of using drugs and engaging in other harmful
activities. Street Smart outreach workers helps youth get the help they need to successfully
emerge from the crisis. After the crisis subsides, Visions and Pathways’ Prosperity program
helps youth obtain employment, continue their education, pursue vocational training and take
the steps necessary to live independently. The programs serve youth throughout Central and
Northern New Jersey.

Brandon Baker, Subaru President, “We at Victory Subaru have proudly donated over $30,000 to Visions and Pathways! The Visions and Pathways mission is to provide abused, neglected,
homeless and missing youth with housing, a stable environment and supportive services that
help them become self-sufficient. Thank you all for allowing us to give such support to these
remarkable charities!”
