What is the Subaru Love Promise?

Subaru and our retailers believe in making the world a better place and the Subaru Love Promise is our vision of respecting all people. This is our commitment to show love and respect to our customers and to work to make a positive impact in the world.

The Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment

We believe in being a positive force in something bigger. And it all starts right here in our community. Not just by our donations, but by our actions.

That's why we stay true to our Love Promise Community Commitment by partnering with a wide variety of community nonprofits and charities.

Every year, we join hands with our owners in the "Share the Love" event, giving back to our community-a community that's given so much to us.

So, every day, we strive to ensure our love is felt not just by our customers, but by all in our community. We do this because we feel it is the right thing to do.

We are proud to participate in the Love Promise Community Commitment. We're grateful, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve and support the causes and passions that are closest to our hearts, right here in our neighborhood.

All of the organizations we support have one thing in common: the unwavering dedication to improve the world and the lives of ­its people.

Pets

Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy.

A partner since 2008, Subaru has donated close to $14 million to the ASPCA and helped support nearly 1,000 pet adoption events, resulting in more than 11,500 adoptions to date.

Environment

Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.

Over a decade ago, Subaru became the first U.S. auto manufacturer to become zero-landfill, and now, in collaboration with the National Park Service and the National Parks Conservation Association, Subaru is leveraging that same environmental expertise to help the National Parks reach zero-landfill too.

Education

It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.

Total donations to teachers: $92,233
Over 200 teachers adopted
More than 15,000 students impacts

Community

In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.

Subaru and Meals on Wheels America worked together to make volunteering easier, by launching a tool called the Meals on Wheels Online Volunteer Drive.

Health

We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.

Subaru has donated more than $4.5 million dollars to
Make A Wish, helping to grant 610 wishes in the U.S.

How is Subaru South Blvd dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve it as well.

Love Promise Stories from Subaru South Blvd

Smiles and Sunshine All Around  –  Cathy B

Smiles and Sunshine All Around

It's never a bad idea to begin a weekend putting smiles on other people's faces. Staff and volunteers from The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, NC Chapter (LLS NC) teamed up with Subaru South Blvd. employees to deliver warm blankets (chemotherapy does have a tendency to make patients cold) and messages of love and hope to those battling cancer at Levine Cancer Institute in Charlotte. Glenn Scott, a 20 year non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma survivor and Charlotte LLS NC Trustee, along with his daughter, Hannah; Tom Davis, a 12-year non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma survivor and Patient Access Volunteer for LLS NC; David Hirsch, a Multiple Myeloma support group leader in Charlotte and LLS fundraiser, and Subaru South Blvd. employees, Whitney, John, Doug and Cameron jumped into action handing out blankets and words of encouragement. What better message is there for someone experiencing perhaps the darkest time of their life, that there stands before them people that understand exactly what they're going through and survived. Glenn and Tom brought smiles and sunshine to the patients as testament to the power of positive thoughts. Thank you Subaru South Boulevard for your generosity and thank you, Levine Cancer Institute for partnering with LLS NC!


Subaru South Blvd Delivering Warmth and Hope  –  Whitney M

Subaru South Blvd Delivering Warmth and Hope

We were pleased to partner with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, North Carolina Chapter, to deliver warmth and hope to members of our community undergoing chemotherapy at Levine Cancer Centers. Our team visited multiple locations in the area and presented blankets, as well as messages of hope and caring, written by visitors to Subaru South Blvd in June and July. The blankets were part of an initiative known as the Subaru Love Promise and Subaru Loves to Care.


Subaru South Blvd Delivers Warmth and Hope  –  Whitney M

Throughout the month of June team members from Subaru South Blvd supported their local community's health and wellness by partnering with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Subaru South Blvd asked customers and team members to share their Messages of Hope with those fighting cancers in the local community and provided a co-branded Subaru Loves to Care and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society bracelet to customers in an effort to raise awareness. Subaru South Blvd also committed to delivering blankets to cancer patients in the local community. 100 blankets and Messages of Hope were delivered to Levine Cancer Institute clinics throughout the metro area throughout the month of July. We are indebted to Cathy Bloomberg for coordinating this huge state-wide effort and ensuring the blankets and messages reached those in need.

Subaru Loves Learning Book Drive

In an effort to support education and work to make a positive impact, Subaru South Blvd team members and customers participated in the Subaru Loves Learning Book Drive throughout the month of August as part of a larger Subaru of America, Inc. (SOA) effort called the Subaru Love Promise The book donations provide outstanding, prize-winning books to elementary school students in order to engage young learners in the world of science and inspire them to want to learn more. All of the prize-winning books are science, technology or engineering related. The 150 books collected by Subaru South Blvd were presented to Sterling Elementary School on October 9, 2015. It was a pleasure to meet the dedicated educators of Sterling Elementary and members of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School system's IT department, who have committed to reading to students throughout the year.

Classroom Central's mission is to equip students living in poverty to effectively learn by collecting and distributing free school supplies.

Slide Into Home Pet Adoption Event

Subaru South Blvd participated in a joint mega-adoption event held by CMPD's Animal Care and Control and the Humane Society of Charlotte. A grant from ASPCA made this event possible and the goal was to #EmptyTheShelters at both locations. Our Hometown Subaru Share the Love Partner, The Shelter Pet Enrichment Fund, the official 501(c)3 of CMPD AC&C attended as well.

Share the Love Hometown Charity Donation  –  Dena C

Share the Love Hometown Charity Donation

From its inception, the Shelter Pet Enrichment Fund (SPEF) has sought to provide the resources necessary to assist CMPD Animal Care & Control in reducing the number of animals euthanized and increase adoptions. The generous Share the Love donation will allow us to achieve this goal through various enrichment programs funded solely by SPEF at CMPD-ACC. Additionally, the donation will allow SPEF to achieve a new goal in 2015 of extending enrichment programs to the community by creating a training resource guide on the SPEF website. The goal is to reduce the number of animals surrendered to the shelter due to training or behavior problems. Thank you, Subaru and the Share the Love campaign, for allowing Shelter Pet Enrichment Fund to continue important enrichment programs and opening up our programs to the community. Your generous contribution will save the lives of homeless animals.
