What is the Subaru Love Promise?


At Evergreen Subaru, "going the extra mile" is a mission that reaches far beyond working with customers. We also believe in contributing to a strong community around us. We are fortunate to be in a community with so many worthy organizations doing such important work. And it's important to us to support them in their critical efforts. 

The Subaru Love Promise is just that. A promise. It is a promise to do right by our community by partnering with nonprofit education, health, community, environment, and animal organizations - to set Subaru apart through our deeds and the deeds of our partners. To be unlike any other car company by doing what is right and good, just for the sake of doing it. 

The Love Promise starts with Subaru of America

We at Subaru of America stay true to the Love Promise by partnering with a wide variety of nonprofits and charities. In addition to these partnerships, every year Subaru, our owners, and our retailers join hands in the "Share the Love" event, giving back to charities across the country. Over the past 20 years, Subaru of America has donated over 50 million dollars to causes we care about, and logged over 28,000 volunteer hours.

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

The charities' varying focuses and passions include:

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 Evergreen Subaru

Evergreen, Land Conservation & Outdoor Recreation  –  Shelley K

Evergreen, Land Conservation & Outdoor Recreation

Androscoggin Land Trust(ALT) is truly grateful to have been selected by Evergreen Subaru as the 2016 Share the Love Hometown Charity. The partnership was a perfect fit. Subarus reliably transport ALT’s outdoors-loving members into the natural places we work to conserve! Joining forces with the terrific employees at Evergreen has been a pleasure, and will continue to have a significant impact on our mission. In preparation for the campaign, Evergreen staff took time to hike an ALT trail (across the river from their business) to learn more about ALT. We walked and talked about our shared commitment to the places and people that help our community thrive. Evergreen then created an exciting promotional video. Owners Lynn and Doug Weisz are wonderful, collaborative supporters of ALT. Doug thoughtfully described our work by saying: “We can't take our community's natural resources for granted. It takes volunteers, materials, time and funds to protect and maintain them." Lynn spoke at our annual meeting, sharing words about Evergreen’s commitment to ALT’s work, which contributed greatly to the event. Whenever we stopped in to replenish supplies, the energy and engagement of the sales staff was evident. Evergreen “shared the love” with ALT not only through invaluable funding, but by sharing our mission with its customers. Our appreciation for the support of this wonderful local business cannot be overstated. A heartfelt thank you to Evergreen, and to Subaru’s Share the Love campaign!


Partnering Against Hunger  –  Sarah C

Partnering Against Hunger

On what was the coldest day of the year to date, SeniorsPlus, Western Maine’s designated agency on aging, collaborated with nearby Evergreen Subaru as part of the national Subaru Share the Love program. The two organizations held the “Share the Love Food Drive” on Friday, December 16 from 9 am to 3 pm at Evergreen Subaru at 774 Center Street in Auburn, Maine. Almost 300 pounds of food was collected on what turned out to be one of the coldest days to date this fall/winter. Foods gathered at the food drive are being used by Meals on Wheels at SeniorsPlus to create emergency food packs of non-perishable foods for distribution to individuals in need. People who wished to contribute food to the campaign dropped off non-perishable items at Evergreen Subaru. To catch the eyes of passersby during the food drive, a SeniorsPlus banner was placed in front of the Subaru dealership, as was a Meals on Wheels van decorated with a large red bow. Emergency Food Packs enable SeniorsPlus to divert a crisis hunger situation while longer-term solutions are found. Evergreen Subaru helped to get the word out about the food drive, including hyping the event on social media. Evergreen employees assisted mightily with food collection that chilly day. Through its Meals on Wheels program, SeniorsPlus serves more than 100,000 meals annually to 800 individuals, many of whom live in remote, rural areas. Maine being the “oldest state in the country” so keeping up with MOW demand is challenging.


Evergreen Subaru Supports Boys & Girls Clubs!  –  Ann M

Evergreen Subaru Supports Boys & Girls Clubs!

Evergreen Subaru in Auburn, Maine has been very generous to Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Maine, particularly its Auburn/Lewiston Clubhouse! The Clubs were named Evergreen Subaru's 2015 Share the Love hometown charity and received $25,000 in Spring 2016 to support the purchase of a second 12-passenger van at the Clubhouse. In addition, Evergreen Subaru hosted job-shadowing days for our Club members to get a sense of all the departments at Evergreen. Since then, Evergreen Subaru continues to be very charitable to its local Boys & Girls Club! Evergreen helped furnish the Teen Center with gently used couches and love seats, and is helping to find the perfect van for the Clubhouse's transportation program. Overall, Evergreen Subaru has helped transform BGCSM's Auburn/Lewiston Clubhouse to serve more members, more often, with greater impact in the Lewiston/Auburn community.


Helping Us Help Children  –  Amy M

Helping Us Help Children

Evergreen Subaru in Auburn, Maine has made a very generous donation to our service. Lisbon Emergency is a non-profit organization providing emergency medical care to the residents of Lisbon, Maine and surrounding communities. Evergreen Subaru has made is possible for our service to purchase a new pediatric jump kit. This jump kit will save us valuable time when treating children in an emergency setting. Everyone at Lisbon Emergency thanks Evergreen Subaru for all they do and for giving back to the community.


"No ordinary school supply drive"  –  Sarah D

When you think of a school supply drive, your mind automatically thinks about pens, pencils, paper, notebooks, binders, etc. I bet you didn't consider deodorant, toothbrushes, snacks, and gently used sneakers. Well, Lynn Weisz and the staff at Evergreen Subaru were willing to think outside of the box this fall for their "Adopt a Classroom" campaign. Our school is made up of more than 50% of free and reduced lunch students, which means that more than half of our student population lives in poverty. Of course pencils and paper help children learn, but how can we expect them to learn when their basic needs have not been met? Our school has the "Green Closet". We stock this space with hygiene products, food, gently used clothing and footwear, and winter attire so we can meet the needs of our students and their families. There are SO many students who access these items, whether they come hungry to school, arrive wet from the rain, have hygiene needs, have holes in their sneakers, or so many other reasons. The Evergreen Subaru staff and their customers helped us stock our shelves to prepare for the year ahead. We are SO fortunate to have a business in our community who will work with us and support us to meet our children's needs. We can't thank them enough!
