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.

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 Redding Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

At Redding Subaru, our Love Promise to the Redding area can be seen in our partnerships with local nonprofits and charities. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of the Redding community, but to serve it as well.

Blankets donated to cancer center and patients

On Monday, the Solace Cancer Center, part of Mercy Medical Center Redding, received 60 cashmere blankets donated by Redding Subaru and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Rosie Pusnik said she gets cold while undergoing her chemotherapy treatment. She learned a month ago she had leukemia. She said she gets cold while getting treatment at the center at Hartnell Avenue because she must sit motionless. "You get cold, because you are laying back and just thinking," said Pusnik. Joanne and Bill Brooke, from Palo Cedro, received one of the new blankets on Monday as Joanne received her treatment. She said she liked the colors as she dosed off in her seat. The donation was part of the Loves to Care program from Subaru. The car company donated over 30,000 blankets across the country. Jean Haslerude said she usually brings a blanket from home when receiving her treatment, but having one provided is a sweet gesture. "It's nice," she said. "You underestimate the importance of being kept warm sometimes." Story By: Nathan Solis of the Redding RecordSearchlight Photo Credit to redding.com
