What is the Subaru Love Promise?

The Subaru Love Promise is a commitment to always do the right thing for our community by entering into partnerships with nonprofit organizations in areas such as health, education, animals, community, and the environment. It is aimed at making our actions and the actions of our partners stand out. We want to be different from other car companies by doing the good and right thing for no other reason other than the pleasure of doing it.

The Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment

Subaru of America keeps the Love Promise alive by entering into partnerships with many charities and nonprofits.

Subaru, retailers, and owners come together in the 'Share the Love' event every year that gives back to many charities all over the country on top of the partnerships. Subaru of America has logged more than 28,000 volunteer hours and donated more than 50 million dollars to the cause over a period of more than 20 years. All organizations supported by Subaru have a steadfast dedication to improving the lives of Kansas people and people of the world in general.

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 Lee's Summit Subaru

LLS & Subaru Loves To Care  –  Danielle S

LLS & Subaru Loves To Care

Today LLS staff joined Jason Brink from Lee’s Summit Subaru at Lee’s Summit Medical Center to drop off 60 blankets, 50 care cards, and 10 care kits to patients currently going through cancer treatment. Jason took a moment to share with LLS and the Cancer Center staff why Lee’s Summit Subaru gives back, “We love giving back to the community because it lets people know we aren’t just another car dealer. We care about our community. Any dealership can spend money. We just chose to spend our money in our community.” Thank you Lee’s Summit Subaru!

2016 Subaru Love Promise Finale

We believe in making the world a better place. It's a pledge to do right by the communities in which we all live and work. This is our promise to continue making a positive impact in the world and our neighborhoods. Hillcrest Transitional Housing is our local charity of choice and will encourage our customers to choose them to receive $250 per new car sold. This will be the 7th year in a row we have partnered up with them. To honor the relationships we developed throughout the year, we did our best to duplicate the "Put a little love in your heart" song with of our Share the love partners from 2016!

2nd Bi-Annual Pet Adoption Event

This is our 2nd in store Pet Adoption Event this year in 2016 with Midwest Animal ResQ. All of the animals they brought this year all got adopted! The store manager even adopted one of them! There was so much love being shared that day, with all of the donations, spreading the word of what Midwest Animal ResQ does, and cars were even sold! Love, what makes a Subaru, a Subaru.


Lee's Summit Subaru loves to help  –  Jason B

Lee's Summit Subaru loves to help

Sometimes you run into a family that needs a little support and don't know how to get it or where to look. When we see a family struggle with illness, financial hardship, and manage all of it without a vehicle - it doesn't make sense to not help when we have the ability to do so. Families that love each other and support each other no matter what is exactly what the Subaru brand is built on - love. They need a car, we are there.

Hillcrest Transitional Housing  –  Jason B

Hillcrest Transitional Housing

As a family-owned new car dealer in Kansas City, Lee's Summit Subaru is proud to be a part of the Kansas City community, and we think it's important to give back to our friends and neighbors. That's why we support a variety of community outreach programs, including Hillcrest Transitional Housing of Eastern Jackson County. Hillcrest Transitional Housing is a 90-day transitional housing program that not only gives homeless families a safe and comfortable place to stay, but also helps them to achieve self-sufficiency 6 years later and over $30,000!

LEUKEMIA AND LYMPHOMA SOCIETY

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is the world’s largest health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education, and patient services. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is working to someday cure blood cancers, and through their research, they are hoping to make someday, today. So we supported the local Lee's Summit Hospital by donating over 600 blankets to the Chemo treatment department.


Pet Adoption Event  –  JASON B

Pet Adoption Event

Twice a year Lee's Summit Subaru chooses a local Animal Shelter that is underfunded and runs solely on volunteers and donations. Midwest Animal ResQ is our shelter of choice. We host the pet adoption event here in the store with all of their pets, free Subaru gear, and free hot dogs. We will even match the adoption fees!


Butterfly Heroes  –  Jason B

Butterfly Heroes

During the Subaru Loves the Earth Initiative in April 2016, we sponsored the National Wildlife Federation’s Butterfly Heroes program. The National Wildlife Federation’s Butterfly Heroes program is designed to help increase monarch butterfly populations through the planting and building of habitats butterflies need to survive, while also raising awareness that 1 out of 3 bites on our dinner plates is made possible by pollinators. To support the effort, Subaru and our retailers worked to establish additional butterfly habitats in local communities across the country Check out the video Here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9ntFrplyhA


THE ALL NEW LEES SUMMIT SUBARU  –  JASON B

THE ALL NEW LEES SUMMIT SUBARU

We started off the year with a complete new staff in almost every capacity. While recognizing the growth opportunities, we still embraced everything that Subaru Brand is accomplishing and the meaning behind the Subaru Love Promise Pledge. Doing so, we were able to accomplish the following: Donated to the Meal on Wheels, and the Lee's Summit School District and filled a Forester on the showroom with food and teacher supplies. We participated in the local Charity "Alex's Lemonade Stand" hosted by Alex Gordon with the Kansas City Royals. We hosted 2 separate bike events that raised charity for M.S. and a local food shelter called Crank out Hunger. In October we hosted our Pet Adoption event, pictured here. To end the year, we donated $2500 to Hillcrest Transitional Housing.
