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 Bud Clary Subaru Longview

Subaru and Bud Clary Subaru Longview believe in making a positive impact on the communities in which we live and work. We uphold that belief through our Love Promise Community Commitment. Every month, we select inspiring stories from customers and partners from around our area who strive to support our collective commitment and feature them here

Helping Families Find the Resources They Need  –  Wendy K

As an infant, Erebor experienced a “near-SIDS” episode that will impact him for the rest of his life. In talking to his parents, Ernie and Samantha, they will tell you that Erebor is 2/3 brain dead and not just anyone can take care of him. “For over a year, it was just Ernie and I with him. Then we heard of a parent counseling group called Holland. The first time we handed Erebor over to strangers, we were right down the hall from him, but still, it was very nerve-racking. Every session, they did better and better with him. Now we can just drop him off for respite care and not worry one bit.” Ernie and Samantha connected with LifeWorks through a word of mouth referral. It’s families like them that LifeWorks is aiming to impact. So many families have very few options for a starting place. A place that can give them the assurance of safety for their child, so that they can take a few hours each week to get information and support to move into the proactive side of raising a child such as Erebor; rather than simply always having to wait for the next unknown issue to arise. There are more families out there like Ernie, Samantha, Erebor, and Eden. Our job is to reach them and make a difference. Perhaps the most impactful thing that Samantha said to me is “Having a stranger watch my disabled son is nerve-racking, as it would be to any parent, but the people at Life Works are no strangers, they make you feel like friends and family”. It’s pretty clear why we at Life Works are inspired to help as many families as we can. Subaru Share the Love and Bud Clary Subaru are helping families like Erebor's to find the resources they need to live successfully in our community. LifeWorks is proud to partner with Bud Clary Subaru to extend our reach to more families in need.

Longview Schools Love Learning  –  Susan C

Please accept a big “THANK YOU” from Longview Schools for the fabulous selection of non-fiction books for our elementary students. Upon review of the titles and quantities of books, I wanted to let you know how the generous donation will be put to best use. We are trying to increase availability in classrooms of non-fiction titles so the books are being distributed to classrooms at each of our eight elementary schools consistent with the books’ reading levels. Specifically, all second grade classes will receive a copy of Tiny Creatures; third grade classes a copy of Mission Mars; fourth grade a copy of Keeping Chickens; and fifth grade a copy of Octopus Scientist. We received one copy of How to Clone a Mammoth, and we will send that to the RAL library. We have a some books remaining, and we are sharing them with our education partner, St. Rose School. This program has been a big boost to our classroom libraries, and we are very appreciative. Again, many thanks!


Making a Difference Now and Tomorrow  –  Wendy K

Bud Clary Subaru has been supporting Life Works to help children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities thrive and achieve their goals regardless of personal challenge for the last 5 years. They take part in our annual fundraiser called "Jeans & Jewels", and they hire people with disabilities that we support to live and work in the community. The Bud Clary Subaru staff are always helpful, kind, courteous, and make it a point to be a part of our community. As a result of their assistance to Life Works, we have been able to extend our reach to over 5000 children and adults with disabilities in our community annually. We could not ask for a better partner to help our community's most vulnerable citizens and their families.


Bud Clary Subaru takes the Butterfly Hero pledge  –  Danaus P

During the month of April, Bud Clary Subaru is proud to bring the National Wildlife Federation's Butterfly Hero program to our local community.

Bud Clary Subaru will host a Certified Wildlife habitat planter in our showroom throughout April and pass out seed packets and information kits to our customers. We want to inspire our neighbors to take action and create their own backyard habitats that will help keep monarch butterflies coming back for many years.
