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.

Love Promise Stories from Prestige Subaru

Donation to Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center  –  Michelle E

Donation to Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center

Prestige Subaru donated blankets to Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center on Thursday, July 6th. Myself and Kamel from Suabru were brought to their infusion room and although there were no patients there at that time, it was clear that the blankets would be greatly appreciated and a warm reminder to patients receiving their treatments that someone at Subaru is thinking about them and supporting them!


Giving Back Feels Good  –  Cathy B

Giving Back Feels Good

Sometimes we hear that kids these days are all about themselves. That myth was decimated June 28th when brothers, Austin and Anthony Pelle, Jr., of Prestige Subaru, joined The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, North Carolina chapter staff in a visit to a local cancer center in their community. They were both involved in the June Subaru Loves To Care initiative, and took part in delivering blankets, kid's craft kits and handwritten messages of hope and inspiration from their customers to patients during their infusion therapy at Mission Health SECU Cancer Center. This was a “grown up" experience, and the Brothers Pelle brought smiles and hope to people when they needed it most. Their message to the patients they met was to stay strong, think positive thoughts and to know that even people they had never met cared about them and were sending good vibes their way. This is the stuff of “grown ups”, and these young men were a credit to Prestige as well as their age group. Thank you, Austin and Anthony, Jr. LLS NC was proud to work with you.

Thank you  –  Simon W

Thank you

No story here, just want to say thank you so much for your support of Asheville Humane Society. I know every dollar you have helped them raise goes to help animals in our community. Thanks so much for your generosity and commitment to the animals of Asheville.


Subaru Loves the Earth - E-Waste Event  –  Danielle S

Subaru Loves the Earth - E-Waste Event

We would like to thank our customers for participating in our E Waste Recycling event during the month of April. With your help, we were able to prevent 4,180 lbs of carbon emissions from polluting the atmosphere. This is equivalent to saving 161 trees, 711 gallons of gasoline, 6,060 plastic bottles, and 27,871 aluminum cans. Thank you for helping strengthen the Subaru Love Promise!


Olivia's Bus  –  Jason W

It all started with a wish, a simple wish to ride a school bus. For 7 year old Olivia Landreth, those 7 years haven't been exactly easy. On her 7th birthday, she received her 2nd heart transplant, that's right, 2nd. After complications from her first transplant in 2009, Olivia spent much of her time in and out of Duke University Hospital, which kept her from riding the school bus like most kids. So when Make-A-Wish asked what her wish would be, she replied with the simple wish to ride a school bus. Tony Pelle of Prestige Subaru was watching when Olivia's story aired on the local news. Tony and a crew from Prestige set out to create for Olivia her very own school bus that she could ride at will. Having spent her actual 7th birthday in the hospital, Olivia's birthday party would occur in the following weeks once she had some time to recover from her procedure. Finally, the day for Olivia's birthday celebration had arrived. The Prestige crew set out in the bus toward the celebration to be meet little Olivia. When she came out of the building, upon seeing her bus with her name down the side for the first time, her spirited face beamed, and without missing a beat she exclaimed, "Let's Ride!" Olivia is currently doing great! Her mother says she gets in the bus almost every day, and "loves to show it off." She even has some of her therapies in it, and her teachers use it as her classroom.

Taste of Compassion Doubles-Down on Charity  –  Matt G

Taste of Compassion Doubles-Down on Charity

Taste of Compassion proved to be another great success in support of the Asheville Humane Society, and the amazing work they do here in Western North Carolina! It was a phenomenal event once again filled with good people, good music, and goodwill united under one roof in support of a truly great organization. We really believe in the passionate work of AHS and are excited to see the continued support and growing success of Taste of Compassion! The Live Auction of our 2015 Lapis Blue Outback closed at $29,000, with all proceeds going to the Asheville Humane Society. (*Love Bonus*) In the wake of winning his new Subaru and after some reflection, our Charitable Winner decided to double down on goodwill. A name had popped into his mind earlier that night - that name was Quita - and while the Asheville Humane Society received the proceeds from the auctioned Subaru, Quita Mazzina of Humane Alliance Spay/Neuter Clinic here in Asheville is now a proud new Subaru owner, joining the family in a 2015 Outback! Our Charitable Winner had heard of their need for a new capable vehicle, and in an amazing philanthropic win-win, filled that need at Taste of Compassion. Under Quita's stewardship, Humane Alliance has become a national leader in spay/neuter programs and initiatives. We wish you many happy miles in your new Subaru as you continue to make a positive difference in our community! We'd like to extend our thanks and gratitude to the anonymous philanthropist.
