What is the Subaru Love Promise?

The Subaru Love Promise is just that. A promise. It is a promise to do right by our community by partnering with nonprofit education, health, community, environment, and animal organizations - to set Subaru apart through our deeds and the deeds of our partners. To be unlike any other car company by doing what is right and good, just for the sake of doing it.


The Love Promise starts with Subaru of America

We at Subaru of America stay true to the Love Promise by partnering with a wide variety of nonprofits and charities. In addition to these partnerships, every year Subaru, our owners, and our retailers join hands in the "Share the Love" event, giving back to charities across the country. Over the past 20 years, Subaru of America has donated over 50 million dollars to causes we care about, and logged over 28,000 volunteer hours.

All of the organizations we support have one thing in common: the unwavering dedication to improve the world and the lives of its people.

The charities' varying focuses and passions include:

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.

How is Hughes 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 Hughes Subaru

"Share the Love" with our AAHS pets!  –  Jed K

Hughes Subaru continues to support and surprise the Athens Area Humane Society. With the recent "Share the Love" campaign event’s generous donation, AAHS can continue on its mission to save and support the animals in our local community! Almost $24,000 was donated and will go a long way to help the animals in the Athens and surrounding counties. The generous donation has already been put to great use and has helped AAHS to purchase multiple new traps to aid with spay and neuter of feral cats, food for our “Puppy Bowl” program which feeds pets in low income homes, materials and supplies to continue humane education programs that service the community and it's pets. This donation still continues to amaze our staff and we cannot be thankful enough, and we know the furry friends in our community thank them also!


Subaru Digs in for Healthy Communities  –  Krisztian V

Subaru Digs in for Healthy Communities

Athens Land Trust (ALT) is a non-profit organization committed to neighborhood revitalization by developing a sustainable local food system in some of Athens’ most food insecure communities and building unity and wellness at the community level. ALT’s Williams Farm is an urban oasis where we work with community members and volunteers to grow produce, flowers, and herbs for our weekly markets and donations to local food banks and soup kitchens. Hughes Subaru in Athens, GA showed their Love for the Earth by digging in and helping expand the farm this April. The Subaru team enriched the soil with organic compost, built raised beds to maximize plant health, and prepared drip irrigation systems for water in summer’s heat. As a result of Hughes Subaru’s local leadership in sustainability, everyone in our community will have access to safe, nutritious, and local food options. Together, Subaru and Athens Land Trust are getting our hands dirty for healthy soil, healthy plants, and healthy communities.


March for Meals with ACCA!  –  Kelli M

March for Meals with ACCA!

Working with Hughes Subaru for the Athens Community Council on Aging’s March for Meals campaign throughout March was a huge asset to our agency! Thanks to the engaged and compassionate staff, we were able to promote and raise funds for our vital Meals on Wheels program which serves 2,275 meals weekly to older adults in the Athens area. Hughes Subaru found many creative opportunities to support us during our campaign. A local brewery supported us by donating 100% of their sales each Wednesday throughout the month of March to our cause. Hughes Subaru staff showed up in full force to show their support! Their staff also volunteered to assist with meal deliveries which was a great help as all of our daily meal routes rely heavily on volunteers to maintain the level of assistance we offer. ACCA wrapped up the month with a March for Meals 5K with a Subaru bringing up the back of the race! Last but certainly not least, Hughes Subaru coordinated a test drive event in which they donated $25 to ACCA for every test drive that was performed! There were 19 test drives which equated to $475 raised to go towards Meals on Wheels. That is enough money to provide roughly 70 meals for older adults in our program! We are so thankful for our ongoing partnership with Hughes Subaru and their staff! In a county where 1 in 5 seniors face food insecurity, partnerships like this truly make a difference in the day-to-day lives of so many!


Santa for a Senior  –  Kelly M

Santa for a Senior

The Athens Community Council on Aging, a non-profit organization, aims to maintain and enrich the lives of older persons in 12 counties of Northeast Georgia. ACCA’s programs enable older persons to live independently and provide services related to health and wellness, meals and caregiver support as well as opportunities for employment and volunteerism. This past holiday season, Hughes Subaru joined others in the community to participate in ACCA’s Be A Santa To A Senior. Santa to a Senior identifies seniors in our community who may not receive gifts during the holiday season. Local businesses and retailers display trees and wreaths with “wish list” ornaments from these seniors. Community members and other groups purchase presents from the senior’s wish lists. Hughes Subaru provided a Merry Christmas for over 25 seniors in need and helped wrap the gifts as part of the annual Holiday Wrapping Party! ACCA is grateful for our ongoing partnership! Together, we are improving the lives of seniors! Thanks to Hughes Subaru for supporting those in need!


Hughes Subaru LOVES pets!  –  Jed K

Hughes Subaru LOVES pets!

The Athens Area Humane Society is a donor supported no-kill 501(c)3 organization dedicated to lowering area euthanasia rates through rescue, spay/neuter, adoption, humane education and pet retention programs. Hughes Subaru and AAHS have joined forces in this belief and the belief that every homeless pet deserves a loving home. Together, Hughes Subaru and AAHS promote adoption, Spay & Neuter and Humane Education in our community through funds raised during the Share the Love event. During the Subaru loves Pets event, the dealership donated food, toys, bedding and cleaning supplies for our shelter. As a result of our adoption events in 2016 alone, 25 homeless pets have found their 'furever' homes! While supporting their local humane society, Hughes Subaru goes above and beyond for pets in the Athens GA community, and this partnership has only begun. We at AAHS love the Hughes Subaru family for all they have done for us and the animals, we can only imagine the possibilities and adoptions to come!
