Mike Brown Subaru Brings an Extraordinary Experience to Local Charities and Organizations

At Mike Brown Subaru, we are grateful to be a part of this close-knit community and therefore, we make every effort to give back to the area. We support Mitchell and the surrounding counties through scholarships, our "Ride with Us" Award for "Teacher of the Year," high school athletics, local Boy Scouts of America, Red Cross Blood Drives, Animal Rescue Adoptions and many other charitable endeavors.
