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 Ed Shults Subaru

Shults Always Caring and Sharing  –  Megan B

Shults Always Caring and Sharing

When it was brought to our attention that Shults was partnering with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to bring messages of hope to patients, we were excited they reached out to us, UPMC Chautauqua WCA Cancer Care Program. Shults has always been a big supporter of the hospital, but to consider our patients to ensure they received comfort and warmth during their treatment was an exceptional gift to us. Many of our patients come for treatment with the unexpected and no matter what age you are, there is always a discomfort and a feeling of being scared. While they fight their battle, they sit in an infusion chair sometimes for hours receiving their chemo and radiation. During this time, it's been a blessing for our patients to receive the comfort of not only a blanket, but the comfort knowing that Shults cares. Giving patients a continued hope in their personal journey to health is essential in their recovery. Without the help from Shults Auto Group and the kind people behind the cause at the dealership (thank you Darren Hills), we would be able to provide the comfort and care for our patients to not only have during treatment but to take home with them. In the Peanuts comics, Linus always had his blanket as a comfort everywhere he went, there's something to be said about one small token that can give the gift of comfort and hope. Thank you again Shults Auto Group for partnering with LLS, we are glad you "Loved to Care".


Shults' Donations Help Local Cancer Patients  –  Breanna S

Shults' Donations Help Local Cancer Patients

This was the second year in a row that Shults Subaru partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) on their month-long "Subaru Loves to Care" campaign. Sales Manager Darren Hills had the opportunity to deliver 10 arts and crafts kits and 80 blankets to patients receiving treatment at UPMC Chautauqua WCA Cancer Treatment Center. The blankets will provide warmth to patients who get cold during treatment, and the art kits can be used by any children receiving treatment or who accompany their parents or family members to oncology appointments. Shults also brought stacks of heartwarming messages written by Subaru customers, meant to inspire patients throughout their battle. Both staff and patients at the hospital were so happy and grateful that the Shults team said they can't wait for next year's Subaru Loves to Care event! LLS sincerely thanks Shults Subaru and their customers, Subaru of America, and the staff and patients at UPMC Chautauqua WCA for making this wonderful program possible. Shults Subaru especially has our gratitude for your generous gift, which will bring hope, love and warmth to cancer patients and their families throughout the community.


Jamestown High School's "Gardeners of Weedin"- GOW  –  Cheryl J

Jamestown High School's

Darren Hills the sales manager at Subaru 46 partnered with JHS and donated gardening items from the National Wildlife Foundation. We planted several perennials that we received. We also placed the bird bath and bird houses in front of the high school. When the flowers are in mid bloom we will deliver them to the Fenton Park Nursing Home. This is a very rewarding experience for the students and a great way for them to give back to their community. Their way to.. pay it forward. Flowers that we delivered to the Fenton Park Nursing Home.


Subaru Helps Senior Shut-in Get Food  –  Barrie Y

Subaru Helps Senior Shut-in Get Food

Fifty-eight-year-old Leslie Priest of Mayville, NY, can thank Shults Subaru and Subaru of America for the two home-delivered meals he receives each day from Meals on Wheels of the Jamestown Area. Mr. Pierce, who is home-bound, is awaiting an essential brain operation that will help him return to a more normal life. His deteriorating health forces him to remain at home and use countless numbers of oxygen tanks in order to breath better. But he also gets Meals on Wheels each day that allows him to get the nutrition he needs. Jamestown Meals on Wheels has partnered with Shults Subaru and Subaru of America to promote “Share the Love,” an opportunity for Meals on Wheels and Subaru to show communities the value of Meals on Wheels locally. By federal regulations, Mr. Priest doesn’t qualify for federally-subsidized meal delivery from Meals on Wheels – he’s too young. “Thanks to the effort that Shults Subaru in Jamestown and Subaru of America have made, we can feed Mr. Priest,” said Barrie Yochim, Meals on Wheels executive director. “We wouldn’t be able to get him any food, let alone give him the opportunity to stay in his own home or receive a daily visit.” Because of his medical concerns, Mr. Pierce is a very private individual – not wanting to have the outside world see him on a regular, nor even on an infrequent, basis. But because of Meals on Wheels, and the funding that Subaru has provided for his meal delivery, Mr. Pierce can remain safely in his home.
