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 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. 

Environment

Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.

Since 2018, Subaru has partnered with TerraCycle.  Participating Subaru retailers collect hard-to-recycle trash that was headed to local landfills. We collect approximately 2 tons of this hard-to-recycle trash monthly, which will be converted to furnishings and other usable items and donated locally.

Education

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 277,600 award-winning science books.  In addition, through our partnerships with Staples and Adoptaclassroom.org we supported teachers and students with donations of S400,000 in gift cards and school supplies. 

Community

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. 

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.

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. 

How is Atlantic Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

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.

Love Promise Stories from Atlantic Subaru

Subaru and Atlantic 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

"The Light Foundation is incredibly grateful"  –  Brandi S

"The Light Foundation is incredibly grateful for Atlantic Subaru’s generosity in "Sharing The Love" with our organization! We strive to instill the values of responsibility, accountability, and hard work by providing at-risk youth with unique outdoor experiences that help them learn and grow. Our events and programs serve kids and families in New England and Ohio (in Matt Light's hometown). Our flagship program, Camp Vohokase, is held at our 500-acre facility called Chenoweth Trails. We help kids from all over the country to build strong leadership skills and become better students, friends, and members of their communities. Our programs include the Light Project, Youth Wild Turkey Hunts, Youth Football Camp, Youth Timber Frame Camp, and Camp Vohokase. Thanks to Atlantic Subaru’s donation, we can continue to offer these programs so that more kids who need it most can reach their highest potential in life."


Thank You for the Gift of Warmth and Love – Amy  –  Amy H

For 100 years, the VNA of Cape Cod has played a vital role in caring for people on Cape Cod. People throughout the Cape know the VNA of Cape Cod has been an integral part of the healthcare landscape here for decades. It's amazing to think that this all started with a single nurse on a bicycle, delivering babies and caring for the sick in their own homes. Today they really seem to do it all, whether it is a newborn or a 102 year old patient. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society was privileged to partner with Atlantic Subaru, to provide Cape Cod Healthcare and the VNA blankets and craft kits for their patients. Thank you to Gegam Sarkisian, Sam Tsimortos and the entire Atlantic Subaru for presenting Jeanne Sarnosky and the VNA with this amazing donation! Thanks to all of you for helping us make someday today with the Love Promise campaign!


Atlantic Subaru Assists in Creating Peace of Mind  –  Kim L

Atlantic Subaru’s generous donation from Share the Love allowed Wicked Good Cause, a local non-profit, to establish the Peace of Mind program, offering care packages and year-round financial assistance to families on the South Shore affected by the unforeseen accident, illness or tragedy. Peace of Mind packages varies depending on the family’s circumstances. For a child recently diagnosed with an illness, we provide items such as HERO blankets, toys and activity books to ease the child’s mind, a gas card for the parents for the many hospital trips, and gift cards for takeout food to unburden the parents; for a sick parent we can provide meals, laundry services, house cleaning services and money for babysitters. Our grants assist families whose circumstances have put financial strain them such as one family the organization assisted after a rare auto-immune disease attacked the mother's kidneys. Married with two young children and unable to work due to her illness, this recipient and her family risked losing their home. Her cousin who nominated her to Wicked Good Cause wrote, “She would never ask for money, but money is what her family direly needs. So please, I beg you, give her a break for once in her life. Let her fight this fight with a little dignity.” Atlantic Subaru’s donation allowed Wicked Good Cause to help ease the financial burden for this family and continues to assist Wicked Good Cause in supporting other families across the South Shore in their time of need. Thank you to Atlantic Subaru without whom our Peace of Mind program would not exist.


Subaru Loves to Care: Cape Cod Hospital  –  Laura W

Thank you to Atlantic Subaru for delivering warmth and hope to patients at Cape Cod Healthcare on June 21st! They delivered warm blankets and messages of hope cards to patients undergoing cancer treatment through the Subaru Loves to Care Program. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is grateful for this amazing partnership and thanks Atlantic Subaru for their efforts in the community!


Thank you, Atlantic Subaru!  –  Mary Ann S

The A.L.S. Family Charitable Foundation and the patients and families we serve are incredibly grateful to Atlantic Subaru for their generosity and compassion. Funds received from the "Share the Love" Program will help us continue to provide adjustable mattresses for bed bound patients; make payments on heating bills, mortgages and rent for those still able to remain at home; provide medical guardian devices to call for help when home alone; purchase communication equipment; provide respite care grants; and provide funds to help with holiday expenses, college scholarships, and vacations for families with children. We regularly receive thank you notes from our families: “…thank you so much for your recent help with back to school shopping, the van repairs and our gas bill! Sometimes it all overwhelms us and the financial strain makes us feel ever more helpless and hopeless. A.L.S. Family has done so much for us over the years, and you are a ray of light and a beacon of hope on an otherwise dark journey.” Larry and Kathy W. Our Foundation was founded by and is operated by family members of loved ones afflicted with Lou Gehrig's Disease or ALS. Having been through this experience ourselves, we are truly aware of the physical, emotional and financial devastation this debilitating and fatal disease causes. The generosity of folks like Atlantic Subaru make it possible to assist our families, and we are honored that you have joined our “ALS” Family!


Atlantic Subaru helping animals  –  Mary Sarah F

The MSPCA-Cape Cod is humbled and grateful to be the Hometown Charity for Atlantic Subaru's 2016 Share the Love program. The money generated will support all areas of our mission, including animal adoption, animal sheltering, education, socialization services for US veterans and children in hospice, advocacy, low-cost programs for pet owners, and law enforcement. The MSPCA-Cape Cod is the only open admission shelter on Cape Cod and no domesticated animal in need is ever turned away from our doors. We accept all breeds, all ages, and all health and behavior issues, and provide them the medical care, behavior training, and enrichment that they need to feel safe and happy as they await their new homes and families. We thank Atlantic Subaru for helping thousands of animals in need within our great community.
