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 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.

Love Promise Stories from Sheehy Subaru

Sheehy Subaru Loves to Care!  –  Jenny H

Sheehy Subaru Loves to Care!

The Subaru delivery on Wednesday, July 12th was an especially important day for Andrew Yeboah from Sheehy Subaru of Springfield. For him, it was more than a day where he and his colleagues delivered 80 blankets, 10 arts and crafts kits, and messages of hope to the INOVA Fair Oaks Infusion Center. Andrew arrived with a huge smile on his face that never faded while he was at the hospital. He shared how he had sickle cell anemia when he was younger and had been treated at hospitals around the D.C. Metro Area, including Children’s Hospital and INOVA Fair Oaks. Andrew shared with us: “I’m really excited that I was able to give back to a hospital that helped me and I can’t wait to do this again next year. Thanks to my treatments, I no longer have sickle cell anemia. I can keep up with our clients, who are known for being very active, go for runs and live out my passions: food, travel, photography and dancing!” He is also very involved in his community raising awareness and providing support for children with sickle cell anemia. Andrew has been with Subaru for about two years and loves that he is able to help Subaru share the love and give back to the community. INOVA’s Dr. Ashish Chawla was also incredibly grateful for the donation, thanking each Sheehy Subaru representative individually. We could sense, simply seeing his face, how important and meaningful this delivery really is.

Participants also got to enjoy a handful of educational stations sponsored by the AHA, including Hands-Only CPR, Simple Cooking with Heart, and healthy vending games while on their walk. Over 100 participants joined AHA, Sheehy Auto Stores and Springfield Town Center to celebrate National Walking Day


Subaru supports our community and helps in rescue  –  Pat C

Subaru supports our community and helps in rescue

Accidents happen and it’s good to be prepared. At a youth mountain bike race, one of the youth fell and it appeared they had broken their arm. The ambulance was called, but when it tried to leave, it got stuck in the soft grass in the woods. Thankfully, TrailsforYouth.Org's Subaru Outback was parked nearby and was able to transport the child to another ambulance for medical treatment. Just like our Subaru Outback, Sheehy Subaru is right there in the moment when you need them. This year, TrailsforYouth.Org was a local community charity for the Share the Love campaign. Because of their support, we will be able to provide hundreds of outdoor experiences for local kids to get outdoors and active. We are there for the kids and Sheehy Subaru is there for us and the families in our community. Thank you from TrailsforYouth.Org, from the kids we help get outdoors and from our community for helping us building stronger, healthier kids and families and for being there when it matters.


To the White House  –  Julie C

To the White House

Brandon, Angela and Sheehy Subaru, TrailsforYouth.Org (TYO) would like to express tremendous gratitude for your support in helping us get local at-risk youth outdoors, active and physically getting them to the trails and biking opportunities. Subaru has been a part of TYO from the beginning. Our first vehicle (still in our fleet), a '98 Subaru Outback has helped us serve thousands of youth for the past 15 years and accompanied us to one of our greatest highlights. In recognition of our efforts, we were invited to the White House to teach mountain bike skills to inner city youth. That day, youth from Thurgood Marshal HS in Southeast DC rode the bike course for hours. From this event, we started a weekly program with the school, continuing to teach youth for two more years. They were most likely the first inner city high school mountain bike club in America. While they learned cycling, they also learned about nature, team work and life skills. Without our resources, these youth could not get to the trails and enjoy the wonder that is our natural environment. Our programs teach youth to overcome obstacles on the trails and in life. They stand prouder for their accomplishments and carry their new found confidence into their daily lives. The results of providing opportunities and changing children’s lives are as proven and reliable as that ’98 Outback. Again, thank you Sheehy Subaru for helping us provide opportunities that transform lives of the at-risk youth in our programs.


Bully Love  –  svenja l

Bully Love

Brandon, Angela and the rest of the staff in Springfield have so welcoming and kind with our Dog Rescue group, Bully Paws! They graciously feature a monthly adoptable Bully by allowing us to show them off on a beautiful wall hanging for all to see! They also are encouraging us to bring a few pooches in for an adoption event. This week, when I came to post the monthly poster, they offered items as a donation to us...dog beds, toys, food. This generosity will be returned...all of my friends who are in the market for a new car...guess what? Springfield Subaru it is!


Wonderful service  –  Judy A

Wonderful service

I'm posting this a little late but I still wanted to share. I was looking for a particular 2015 WRX and at the time customers were apparently having to place orders, then waiting close to 6 months to get them. Basically, it was nearly impossible to get the exact color and options I wanted in the 2015 WRX. One evening, I got a call from Sheehy Subaru of Springfield about a car that was just delivered and they asked if I wanted to see it in person even though it wasn't the color I wanted. Got to the dealer, feel in love with the color but was too late because another customer was already in finance getting paperwork done for it. I left the dealer sad and empty handed but got a call 10 minutes later saying the deal fell through. This was such an emotional roller coaster. The Sheehy Subaru team gave me an awesome trade in deal for my 2011 Impreza and I drove the car I wanted home that night. The team at Sheehy Subaru were all very thorough, extremely kind, and just down right amazing during the entire process of my purchase. I'm glad they were so proactive about finding the car I wanted. I have and will continue to send anyone I links looking to buy a car to Sheehy Subaru of Springfield. Thank you Sheehy Subaru! I love my WRX!

H.A.R.T. Pet Adoption Event  –  Dirk V

H.A.R.T. Pet Adoption Event

On Saturday, December 20th, Sheehy Subaru sponsored a pet adoption event with H.A.R.T., a local rescue organization from Fairfax Station, Virginia. H.A.R.T. (Homeless Area Rescue Team) is a no kill animal rescue and support group that takes in and rehomes abused and unwanted dogs and cats. Subaru is helping our local canine friends receive the much-needed attention that they deserve. Sheehy Subaru felt that this was a wonderful opportunity to embrace the "Share the Love" campaign with dog enthusiasts because we all know that this "love" extends to the family dog! We felt that this was a good opportunity to raise awareness of the local organization and for the ASPCA. Subaru has included the ASPCA in the "Share the Love" Event for the last seven years! Sheehy Subaru was proud to donate $1000 in addition to sponsoring this event for the HART association. Sheehy also agreed to pay the $365 adoption fee for any one who decided to take home one of the rescue dogs.
