The 2020 Subaru Love Promise Customer and Community Commitment Award

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 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 Glenwood Springs Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Subaru Share the Love supports our local youth!  –  Mindi C

We are so very grateful to Glenwood Springs Subaru for supporting Access AfterSchool during the 2018 Subaru Share the Love Event. Access AfterSchool (Access) received $10,408 which went directly to support SecondShift, an after-school program focused on creative enrichment and positive youth development for elementary and middle school aged youth. Access’ philosophy is that youth thrive when offered experiences that spark their passions, encourage movement and creativity and apply what they learn in school to their lives in the broader community. Since 2009, Access has served 14,202 students, hired 1,567 instructors and provided 1,586 classes from Basalt to Rifle in rural western Colorado. Over half of all Access’ participants are from low-income households and many parents that spend the majority of every day working and commuting experience decreased stress knowing their children are in a safe, supervised and supportive environment. Thanks in part to the generosity of Glenwood Springs Subaru, Access was able to expand to offer programming at an additional location in late 2018, which increased the number of students in Glenwood Springs who benefitted from after school activities by 67% over 2017. Thank you Glenwood Springs Subaru for honoring and supporting our mission to enrich the lives of local youth, support working families, and build healthy communities!


Subaru & LLS Deliver Blankets to Cancer Patients  –  Beth M

Glenwood Springs Subaru, in partnership with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, participated in a “Share the Love” campaign to help blood cancer patients at Valley View Hospital. Team members from Subaru, LLS and Valley View Hospital donated 80 warm, fuzzy blankets with care cards and messages of hope from the community. They also delivered 10 care kits to younger patients so the children could draw, do crafts and break away from hospital life. The program is a great way for LLS and Subaru to connect with local hospitals and help blood cancer patients. “It was a rewarding experience to be able to brighten the patients’ day and wrap them in love by providing the Subaru blankets! The cancer journey is tough, so to lift their spirits is a wonderful feeling,” LLS Sr. Campaign Director Beth Muehlethaler said.

I am the 1st Grade teacher at Highland and the students spent time clearing the area at the front of the building earlier this summer to make way for the garden.


Subaru Adopt-A-Thon  –  Kalli W

Rifle Animal Shelter is a small, non-profit, animal shelter in rural western Colorado. Our facility is a fifty year old building that is just under 1,200 square feet, the facility is falling down around us. Each year we are able to adopt out in to our community, around 1,200 animals and we aren't stopping there. Glenwood Springs Subaru hosts an adoption event each year and invites Rifle Animal Shelter, as well as surrounding animal rescues, to an Adopt-A-Thon. At this event Subaru pays every adoption fee, meaning people who are looking to rescue an animal can do so, free of charge. To our very small facility this makes a large difference in our capability. This year at the event, we took a total of twelve dogs and adopted out nine of them! 2017 held our largest number of adoptions to date! We were then able to transfer in more animals for adoption and save many more lives. This event is our largest adoption event of the year and we look forward to it each spring. Thank you Glenwood Springs Subaru for making such a dramatic difference in the lives of homeless animals, you make the difference!


Glenwood Springs Subaru saves the butterflies!  –  Stephanie W

Butterflies are very important to Glenwood Springs Subaru! For Earth Day 2016, they set up and lounge at the local recreation center, hosted an ice cream social, and invited everyone to learn about why butterflies are so important! Many families came out to learn how we can make a difference and save butterflies. The butterfly starter kits and seeds were very helpful. It was wonderful to see the community come together, learn about a great cause, and leave with the tools to make a difference!

Glenwood Springs Subaru Partners with Challenge Aspen  –  Jay I

Glenwood Springs Subaru partnered with Challenge Aspen, a local organization that provides opportunities for people with disabilities. We were very fortunate to volunteer at one of their week long camps through one of their divisions, Challenge Aspen Military Opportunities. C.A.M.O. provides adaptive and therapeutic recreation, wellness and cultural experiences for injured/wounded warriors with cognitive and/or physical disabilities. C.A.M.O. provides tools and skills for injured/wounded service members, veterans and their families to help realize their life potential, bridging the gap between injuries and moving forward with their new normal life. Together we were able to provide the possibility for 12 women to come to Snowmass Colorado and experience everything C.A.M.O. has to offer. During the week they were able to enjoy world class ski conditions, ski instructors, equipment, meals, therapy sessions, and coaching. One point in the week a local salon pamper the women by styling hair, nails, and makeup before a banquet dinner held to honor them. Throughout the week lifelong relationships were made, wounds of the past were healed, and everlasting memories were made. We continue to stay in touch with some of the women from this camp. We hope to raise awareness about the program and provide the opportunity for more women in future years.
