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.

How is St. Cloud Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

We here at St. Cloud Subaru have taken great pride in our community from day one. We believe in being more than a Subaru retailer. We believe in being part of our community. In setting an example. In building lifelong relationships. And in ensuring the love is felt not just by our customers, but by all. Not because it's good for business. Because it's the right thing to do. Along side of Subaru, St Cloud Subaru is proud to sponsor a local recycle program. In the past year, we have provided numerous recycle containers around the local community. We maintain these containers and have seen great support for our efforts. Look for our containers at many local parks. It is important for us all to do our part in keeping our planet green! St Cloud Subaru is also a proud sponsor of the St Cloud State University Athletic Program. Look for our displays at many SCSU Home sporting events including one of our cars on the ice at every home Husky Hockey game! "Subaru The Safest Car On Ice!" St Cloud Subaru also sponsors many other local activities and events such as the Big Brother & Big Sisters, the Annual Apple Duathlon and Earth Day Marathon. Look for more events in the near future, as we are always looking for new ways to help our community in any way we can!

Love Promise Stories from St. Cloud Subaru

Subaru Loves Learning  –  Anna W

Subaru Loves Learning

Subaru donated 150 science based books to our library at Kennedy Community School. Students in grades PK-8 now have access to additional titles and texts that help them deepen their learning and explore science. Thank you Subaru!


Where art and nature invite you for a walk.  –  Jenny K

Where art and nature invite you for a walk.

Imagine hiking through the forest, surrounded by the beautiful fall colors just starting to pop. From over the hill you hear sounds of guitar music, or around the next bend you stumble upon a community painting asking you to add your inspiration. At our annual Collegeville Colors festival in the Saint John's Abbey Arboretum, we take the most inviting time to go for a hike and make it even better with arts, crafts, live music, and nature activities all along the trail. This year St. Cloud Subaru sponsored the fall festival and even joined the festivities with a demo campsite for visitors to explore. While the weather was not very cooperative this year, the event still brought hundreds of people in our community together- for nature, for art, for outdoor family fun (rain or shine!). And that's a Subaru Love Promise.


#SubaruLovesToCare w/ LLS + Coborn Cancer Center  –  Shannon B

#SubaruLovesToCare w/ LLS + Coborn Cancer Center

In June 2017, Subaru of America and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) spread love, hope and warmth to cancer patients and their families in communities across the country. Customers visiting St. Cloud Subaru were given the chance to write personalized messages of hope to patients in their local community. Those care cards were then handed out alongside a donated blanket to provide comfort and warmth to patients being treated at Children's Hospitals & Clinics of Minnesota. Local survivor, Neil, was present to accept the blankets on behalf of blood cancer patients like himself. On New Year’s Eve 2015, Neil started chemotherapy for non-Hodgkin lymphoma at Coborn Cancer Center. “The next day, I felt like a freight train had hit my body. Every bone in my body hurt,” Neil remembers. But today, after a long few years with two sessions of six rounds of chemo each, he says he’s feeling fabulous and keeping the cancer at bay. He’s incredibly thankful for his care team and Dr. Lemma at who got him here. Neil said, “I think this is a fabulous deal what Subaru is doing, giving these blankets out to patients who need them. When I first came to Coborn they gifted me a blanket and I still have it. I use it often, and I really appreciated a warm blanket during chemo. It acts kind of like a security blanket. You bring it home and feel some comfort, and think about all the wonderful people at the cancer center who are helping you get through this.” Thank you, St. Cloud Subaru!

Timberwolves  –  Elizabeth R

Timberwolves

I'm Brandonlee and I belong to Big Brothers & Sisters in St. Cloud. I had a chance to go to The Timberwolves game Friday night against the Mavericks. My tickets came from Subaru and they were the best seats ever. I got to see things so up close it was like I could touch players. I and my mom went to the game. I play traveling basketball for big lake and it's my favorite sport. Some of my teammates were at the game and with my snap chat I shared my videos with them and the rest of my teammates. I can't thank you enough for the donated ticket to me. I had a blast. Thank you, Brandonlee

Subaru is committed to supporting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Minnesota’s academic success programs. Every day, more than 1,500 young people participate in programs and services provided by Boys & Girls Club at 15 KIDSTOP sites and 3 Club facilities. Hundreds of youth rely on our staff for help with homework, reading and literacy support, and career development opportunities.

Thank you, Subaru, for your love promise to help our community’s young people achieve success in school!


Jacob  –  Shannon O

Jacob

Hi there I just wanted to write in about Jacob. He is a part of the Big Brother Big Sister program and he was assigned to be a big brother to my son Mason. I have only met Jacob a couple of times but during those couple of times he has been nothing but super nice and a real gentleman. My son Mason couldn't be any happier than he has been since he's been spending time with Jacob. My son will come home from school the days he meets with Jacob and is super excited to tell me about the time he spent with Jacob. He has definitely brought my son up from a sad place to a very happy place. I just can't thank him enough for what he has done for Mason. He has really shown Mason that there is so much fun and happiness in life.

Subaru is helping Boys & Girls Club feed the kids!  –  Mark S

Subaru is helping Boys & Girls Club feed the kids!

Thank you to all our friends at St. Cloud Subaru for helping the Boys & Girls Club feed an evening meal to the hungry kids who attend the Club. Subaru recently donated over $12,000 for the Club's Meal Program. That means the Boys & Girls Club can serve an additional 8,232 meal this year. When Subaru talks about sharing the love...they mean it. A lot of kids in the St. Cloud Area won't go to bed hungry tonight because Subaru cared enough to help us feed the kids! Thank you Subaru!
