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 Herb Gordon Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Herb Gordon Subaru promises to be a strong advocate in our community, and not just an automotive retailer. We will continue to support those organizations we currently are engaged with, including the Holy Cross Homecare & Hospice and the American Cancer Society. We believe that these vested relationships are an essential element to our civic duty. We pledge to continue to build upon our philanthropic efforts because we understand the value of doing what is right not for the business but for the lives we positively affect.

Love Promise Stories from Herb Gordon Subaru

Herb Gordon Subaru Loves to Care!  –  Jenny H

Herb Gordon Subaru Loves to Care!

July 17th at the Children’s National Medical Center was a meaningful day for Jason Withrow from Herb Gordon Subaru. “Everyone we met was so nice and welcoming. I was awed by the strength of the kids we met. They are truly heroes to be fighting so hard and still have such high spirits. It feels good to help in any way possible. It is a wonderful cause and we were honored to be able to partner with LLS.” Jason told us. With him that day was Ed Sarecky, and together, they delivered 80 blankets, 10 arts and crafts kits, and messages of hope to Children’s. Also joining us were Honored Hero, Mason Mazzuca, and his mom, Keli. She shared with us that Mason had returned for in-patient treatment at the Center and so they were grateful to have some time away from the unit.


Butterfly Garden  –  Patricia W

Butterfly Garden

Laurel Elementary School is a certified Maryland Green School dedicated to teaching our students about environmental stewardship. Our students are actively engaged in our school recycling program and many of our students plant and maintain vegetable gardens around the school. As part of our Science curriculum, students study the life cycle of the butterfly. We have learned about the decline in the Monarch butterfly population and realized that with all of the construction and building around Laurel, one of the reasons for the Monarch decline is the loss of the milkweeds and other nectar plants that used to grow in the areas that are being developed. Our students wanted to help the butterflies by creating gardens with plants that would attract and sustain them here at our school. A local Boy Scout volunteered to build a raised-bed garden for our Butterfly Garden. By the time the garden was built, the few funds we had were depleted. We did not have enough money to purchase plants for the garden. We saw the Subaru Loves the Earth program and applied. We were very excited when we were chosen as a partner school. We had the infrastructure - all we needed were the supplies, which Subaru so generously provided.Our students planted all of the perennials we received and have been diligently watering and weeding the flower bed. We can't wait to install the bird boxes next.


Helping the Elderly Keep Their Pets  –  Lynn M

Helping the Elderly Keep Their Pets

Herb Gordon Subaru is partnering with Thankful Paws to provide pet food and supplies that will help the elderly keep their pets happy, healthy and in their forever homes. Thankful Paws is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit organization founded in 2011 with the primary mission of helping to prevent the surrender of beloved family pets simply because they could not afford to provide them with the proper food. Thankful Paws helps over 350 animals each month and in the last 5 years, has delivered over 2 million meals! The elderly people Thankful Paws helps each month are so appreciative of the support and encouragement they get. They are now able to be more confident and secure in their ability to provide for their constant companion and best friend. Thankful Paws also helps those who are suffering from homelessness and domestic abuse situations with the much needed pet food and supplies. Thankful Paws appreciates your help and support.

Holy Cross Hospice Love Promise Story  –  Susan F

Holy Cross Hospice Love Promise Story

Hospice Service promotes life. Holy Cross Hospice offers those living with terminal illness a unique and holistic approach to their care with a team of medical professionals specializing in symptom management aimed at improving quality of life. Hospice is about defining what comfort means to you and about being surrounded by who you want, where you want. It is about experiencing the love of family and friends in your own way and even about getting to eat that cake or ice cream. Hospice is about life and living it the way you want for as long as you can. No endeavor compares to the difficulty of caring for a loved one with terminal illness and we witnesses the promise of love every day during our care. It is lived out in the teenage children who sing their mom her favorite song at her bedside even though she can no longer sing with them. The love promise is in the daughter who takes her mom, oxygen and all, to Atlantic City for one more go at the slot machines. And it is in the adult daughter who moves back to her childhood bedroom to assure mom is eating breakfast and taking her medications. Our promise of love and support doesn't end when our patients die. We provide Grief and Bereavement Support for those walking the often tumultuous path of grief. Holy Cross Hospice is thankful for the privilege to serve our community. We thank Herb Gordon Subaru for their support in our endeavor to journey with those during a very intimate and meaningful time of life.
