We've been nationally recognized for our dedication to our community and the Subaru Love Promise.
We're honored to receive the 2022 Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment Award. This award nationally recognizes Subaru retailers who are making the world a better place while demonstrating an outstanding commitment to supporting passions and causes in local communities. These efforts are focused in important areas such as the environment, community, health, education, and pets.
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.
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 over $28 million to the ASPCA and through Subaru Loves Pets has helped support the rescue, transport, adoption, and well-being of over 230,000 animals across the country.
Subaru and our retailers are committed to protecting and preserving the Earth, not just by our words, but also by our actions.
Since 2018, as part of the Subaru Loves the Earth initiative, Subaru and retailers across the country have partnered with TerraCycle® and have collected over 7 million pieces of hard-to-recycle trash from their communities. Items such as snack bag wrappers, coffee cups, or used cabin air filters from service areas have been diverted from landfills and given a second life by TerraCycle when it is converted into durable furniture and other usable items.
It's our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.
Since 2015 Subaru, in partnership with the American Association for the Advancement Science, donated over 369,000 award-winning science books. In addition, through our partnerships with Staples and Adoptaclassroom.org we supported teachers and students with donations of $400,000 in gift cards and school supplies.
In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.
In 2020, Subaru and its retailers made a donation to Feeding America to provide 50 million meals to help feed people in need during the COVID-19 crisis,* making meals available at 199 local food banks across the country.
*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks.
We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.
Since 2016, Subaru and its retailers have partnered with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to donate over 167,000 blankets and 21,500 arts & crafts kits and reached nearly 150,000 patients in more than 780 hospitals nationwide.
Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve it as well.
Subaru and Bud Clary Subaru 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.
What an awesome partnership we have had over the years. We are very excited about this opportunity and your partnership with us this year will improve all classrooms.
Spumoni came in to us in June with a feral momma cat. She was only three weeks old, momma cat was very stressed and stopped taking care of Spumoni. So one of our foster families was able to bottle feed her and get her ready for adoption. Spumoni was adopted by a wonderful young lady who came all the way from Puyallup to adopt her. We wish Spumoni the best life. Thank you Subaru for having events that help us adopt out animals into their furrever homes! Humane Society of Cowlitz County staff
Jenny has been receiving services since 1990. From July 1990 to September 2001 Jenny lived at Outward Bound. This was a great step for Jenny and she learned many things about living in town; how to get around, banking and budgeting, developing relationships with staff and clients, working and enjoying leisure activities. She was to move to her own apartment years before that actually took place. She has been extremely happy with her apartment, other clients and staff. Jenny always says “I love my staff, and they take great care of me!” As parents that gives us great peace of mind and we have definitely appreciated all the work the staff does to make her life enjoyable!” Alex and Marnee Alexander Because of the support of the Subaru Cares program, people like Jenny can live happy, healthy, and fulfilling lives.
We got so many neat things for our classroom. Thank you Bud Clary Subaru!
Bud Clary Subaru, Me and my Kindergarteners can't thank you enough for your generous offer! I was able to buy a light table and sensory bins for the kiddos in room 14. Thank you!
Bud Clary Subaru continues to support and share the love with Longview's Life Works organization and their mission to serve children and adults who experience intellectual and developmental disabilities in our greater Cowlitz County Community.
We are proud and honored by the generosity of our Subaru customers, and it was our pleasure to present a check and our continued support to Life Works.
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.

Bud Clary Subaru is proud to partner with Cowlitz County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) for the annual Share the Love Celebration. Through the kindness of our customers, we were able to donate over $7,400 to the non-profit organization who help represent children who wouldn't otherwise have help in the dependency court system.
The Humane Society of Cowlitz County is on a mission to save animals in need. Through the kindness of our customers and community, Bud Clary Subaru was able to donate food, towels, blankets, toys and more to aid the cause.
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!
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.
During the month of April, Bud Clary Subaru is proud to bring the National Wildlife Federation's Butterfly Hero program to our local community. We will educate employees and customers about the importance of increasing monarch butterfly population by planting and creating habitats that are crucial to the survival of these important pollinators of US crops and food supplies. 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.
Bud Clary Subaru is proud to support Cowlitz County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate), a non-profit organization tasked with being the voice of abused and neglected children in the dependency court system.
