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 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.

Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.

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 Brandon Tomes Subaru

Subaru Brings Warmth to Cancer Patients  –  Alyssa W

Subaru Brings Warmth to Cancer Patients

On July 11, Brandon Tomes Subaru partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) of North Texas to deliver warmth to patients battling cancer at Medical City- Dallas. Brandon Tomes Subaru generously donated 80 blankets along with a number of arts & craft kits to patients at the hospital. While we were there, nurses from the oncology and children's floors came to deliver the blankets to patients. Before we left, the nurses came back for a second round of blankets and told us how excited the patients were to receive such a kind gift of love. Subaru supports the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in their mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS and patients across the country thank Brandon Tomes Subaru for their generosity towards our community! Because of you, our patients feel supported through their treatment and in survivorship. Thank you, Brandon Tomes Subaru!


Subaru and NWF Love the Earth!  –  Newly G

Subaru and NWF Love the Earth!

We honored and grateful to have the opportunity host a beautiful native wildlife garden at Nell Burks Elementary! Like a team sport or mascot, providing our students with this amazing and hands-on gardening opportunity has offered a symbolic locus of school pride and spirit. Gardening offers schools a way of helping children to identify with their school and to feel proud of their own individual contribution. Students had the opportunity to discuss and learn about which plants they helped to plant, and they are extremely proud of their finished product and hard work. This experience has provided us with the ability to foster school spirit and each student's attitudes toward the positive school culture and ownership.


The Samaritan Inn - Share The Love  –  Jillian F

The Samaritan Inn - Share The Love

Brandon Tomes Subaru took the Share The Love program to another level this year. Sales, service, management, and office employees took time out of their day to tour the only homeless shelter in Collin County and physically gave back to their hometown charity by volunteering. Brandon Tomes Subaru had an unbelievable time learning first-hand what exactly The Samaritan Inn does for their community and were able to be apart of serving lunches, stocking the pantry, unloading donations, and mingling with the residents. These experiences were shared with their customers during Share The Love which assisted them in raising over DOUBLE the amount they were able to raise last year for The Samaritan Inn! Congratulations!

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society  –  Jillian F

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

Brandon Tomes Subaru recently partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to help out and provide support to cancer patients at the Medical City Dallas. I wanted to send a note and share with all of you how grateful I am to have such amazing and thoughtful people in our community! The donation of blankets from Brandon Tomes Subaru to our Oncology Program has been a powerful testament to these patients here at Medical City Dallas. These blankets are letting them know that even though they are in a frightening and sometimes uncertain place, there are people out there who care! We have delivered almost every blanket and each time we take the box in and the patients open it they are wowed!! The cards truly have made people smile and given so many a much needed bright spot of hope in their day. Please let everyone involved know how moved everyone was by this generous project - this touched not only the patients, but also touched our staff! Thank you again for your heartfelt generosity. From: Kimberlee Hann, Director of Oncology Services

Annual Krewe of Barkus  –  Amy R

Annual Krewe of Barkus

For 14 years the Krewe of Barkus parade has been a tremendous source of civic pride and community involvement. It is one of the most highly publicized family-friendly events in all of north Texas. Newspapers, television, and radio stations from Dallas and Fort Worth cover the event each year and the positive publicity our city receives is priceless. Brandon Tomes Subaru was there to participate in this family event in downtown McKinney on February 6, 2016. The theme this year was "A Salute to All Things French". McKinney's Krewe of Barkus is patterned after the Mystic Krewe of Barkus in New Orleans, which was established to help abused and abandoned dogs.

Adopt-A-Classroom Program  –  Danielle S

Adopt-A-Classroom Program

The start of school is an exciting time for students everywhere, but this year, a special classroom of Kindergartners received an unexpected surprise! Brandon Tomes Subaru in McKinney made a generous donation to my class at Finch Elementary. Through the Adopt-a-Classroom program, they donated $200 to purchase classroom materials. I was able to get some much-needed educational tools for my kindergartners. These included literacy activities, math manipulatives to help with hands-on learning, and books! These materials will help increase engagement, which translates to increased student achievement! In addition, Brandon Tomes Subaru solicited school supply donations from its customers, and FILLED a Subaru vehicle with markers, folders, pencils, index cards, glue, supply bags, crayons and paper! They also donated $95 to purchase additional supplies! The kids were over-the-moon with their excitement, as was I! They were so grateful for the help with materials and couldn't wait to get to work using their new school tools. Finch Elementary is a Title I school located in east McKinney, and has a large population of English as a Second Language and bilingual students. The kids (and teachers) were touched by the generosity of Brandon Tomes Subaru because it means that people all over McKinney and surrounding cities want them to be successful, and it shows them that their community cares!

Brandon Tomes Subaru was the exclusive Automobile Dealer for the Krewe of Barkus parade on February 15, 2015 in Historic Downtown McKinney. From Baquettes to beignets, from the fun and food of the French Quarter in New Orleans to pooches in Paris, the 2015 Krewe of Barkus saluted all things French! The McKinney Artistic Krewe of Barkus 2015 called on all four-legged canine friends and their best buddies to share in the excitement for this year's event. The theme this year was A Salute to All Things French, berets and bon bons, the fashion, the food, and the fun. Embarking on its 13th annual successful year, Krewe of Barkus was a howling hoot. In past years, more than 200 dogs participated in the parade alongside more than 4,500 spectators in awe of costumes, creatures and creativity. Patterned after the Mystic Krewe of Barkus in New Orleans, which was established to help abused and abandoned canines, Krewe of Barkus featured a parade, vendor booths, interactive activities and prizes for costumes.
