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.

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.

Love Promise Stories from Subaru of Dayton

Subaru of Dayton and LLS Blanket Delivery  –  Cris P

Subaru of Dayton and LLS Blanket Delivery

What should have been one of the most joyful days of Andrew Rourke’s life – the birth of his daughter Nora Rose - was turned upside down. Just two hours before little Nora Rose made her entrance into the world, Andrew received word that test results showed he most likely had cancer. It was a Tuesday and little Nora was born healthy and happy. On Thursday she went home with her family. The following week Andrew started treatment for Stage 3 Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Today as members of the LLS staff, Kettering Hospital and Subaru of Dayton delivered blankets to patients at Kettering Cancer Center, there was much to celebrate. As Andrew finished his last cancer treatment he was surrounded by several family members and a giant bouquet of purple balloons. Andrew was presented with the blanket, care card and craft kit from Subaru of Dayton. “When you get a cancer diagnosis, you feel like your life is over. Then you find out your prognosis is good and you are going to get your life back” … Tears of joy and relief overtook Andrew and he had to pause. He continued by saying “when I see Nora Rose, I will always look at her as my little angel.” As we were leaving, Brad Hamilton, General Manager of Subaru of Dayton, gave Andrew a big hug, told him that it was an honor to meet him and to be able to deliver blankets to those in the fight of their life.

June 2017 - Subaru of Dayton Loves to Care

During National Cancer Survivor Month (June), Subaru of Dayton supported The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) in an effort to make a positive impact on the health & wellness of our local community. Throughout the month of June, Subaru of Dayton customers and employees wrote personal messages of hope for patients fighting cancers in the local area in support of Subaru Loves to Care. And in the beginning of July, Subaru of Dayton & the LLS delivered over 200 messages alongside blankets and arts & crafts kits donating them to patients undergoing treatment at Kettering Medical Center. We LOVED getting to help brighten the day in a small way for those going through treatments. We even got to meet & celebrate a dad who's last day of treatment was that day -- that is what Subaru Loves to Care is all about! Ch 2 covered the event.

Subaru of Dayton Loves Teachers!  –  Bethany H

Subaru of Dayton Loves Teachers!

In August 2015, Subaru of Dayton launched a campaign to raise funds for Ms Bethany Hamilton's preschool class at the Kettering Early Childhood Education Center in Moraine Ohio. From Miss Beth - "I am so extremely grateful that I have been chosen for this opportunity. I struggled last year with not having a fully supplied classroom and had to ask parents to donate any old toys they no longer wanted for the preschool children to use. If I don't change out the toys every week the children become bored and difficult to keep engaged. I also struggled with having enough toys to meet all of their developmental and physical needs because they have varying disabilities. Some are still in the infant/toddler stage and others are ready for kindergarten!" With help from our customers, we were able to buy a large portion of her wish list and show our community's children we love learning!
