What is the Subaru Love Promise?

The Subaru Love Promise is just that. A promise. It is a promise to do right by our community by partnering with nonprofit education, health, community, environment, and animal organizations - to set Subaru apart through our deeds and the deeds of our partners. To be unlike any other car company by doing what is right and good, just for the sake of doing it.

The Love Promise starts with Subaru of America

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.

The charities' varying focuses and passions include:

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 Hanson Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve it as well.

Love Promise Stories from Hanson Subaru

Subaru Helps Deliver Meals!  –  Jolene B

Subaru Helps Deliver Meals!

For almost a decade the Hanson Subaru team has been supporting the Senior Nutrition Program at Senior Services for South Sound. Oct - Dec each year Hanson Subaru holds a food drive to support Blizzard Bags that are delivered to homebound seniors in Thurston and Mason County. “When we started the food drive, we were able to deliver about 100 bags to our seniors, now we are able to deliver over 350 bags of emergency food rations to homebound seniors, and support our Senior Food Bank for most of the year through the food that is raised during the Share the Love Food Drive at Hanson Subaru.” Cathy Visser, SNP Director shared. Beyond the Food Drive, the Hanson Subaru team has picked Senior Services as their Hometown Charity. “By choosing us as a Hometown Charity, Hanson is not only supporting our cause monetarily, but also drawing awareness to the needs of seniors in our community. Each year we are able to deliver over 110,000 meals to seniors in our community because of the support that is provided through Share the Love.” Cathy continued. The Hanson Team also makes time to come and serve lunch at our centers, and helps to put together the Blizzard Bags for delivery. “They are coming and serving for multiple hours out of their day to support seniors.” Eileen McKenzieSullivan, Ex Dir said. “They are supporting us all year, in all the ways that you can give—monetary, raising awareness, and by volunteering in person-- and we are grateful for their ongoing support.”

2016 Senior Services of South Sound  –  Jolene B

2016 Senior Services of South Sound

It has been eight years since Vince Hanson started helping with our Annual Food Drive to provide food for the Meals On Wheels client's at Senior Services for South Sound. This not only supports the Senior Meals on Wheels program but also the Senior Outreach and the Senior Food Bank of Thurston County. All of these programs are vital safety nets to support Seniors and their ability to stay healthy and survive. "The first year we brought one van load of food," Vince remembered, "This year we had to rent a box truck to bring all the food". Vince and his team brought all that food into the Olympia Senior Center on a very rainy afternoon this December. "They were all drenched!" Cathy Visser, Senior Nutrition Director, recalled. "It was the most food we've seen for a food drive. The "Emergency Food Bags" wouldn't happen if it wasn't for Hanson Subaru and the Food Drive." Subaru of America, allows Hanson Subaru to choose one local charity and thankfully they chose to support us. I've seen some of our past clients receiving meals at the Senior Center, this is our opportunity to give back to them." Vince said about choosing Senior Services. This past year through the Share the Love Drive, Hanson Subaru was able to present at check to Senior Services for $33,500 representing donations made through the campaign. This year Hanson Subaru was one of our March for Meals Sponsors and assisted at the Olympia Senior Center during one of the March meal days to help serve a lunch.


Hanson Subaru Helping Save Butterflies  –  Rob L

Hanson Subaru Helping Save Butterflies

Doing Our Part to Save the Butterflies! Did you know the monarch population in the United States has declined by more than 90 percent in recent years? For the month of April, Hanson Subaru is partnering with the National Wildlife Foundation for the Butterfly Heroes Program. Butterfly Heroes seeks to bring awareness to the declining population and connect our community of gardeners and kids, families, and schools alike to help the monarchs and other pollinators. Creating monarch and pollinator habitat is a wonderful opportunity for observing one of nature's most miraculous occurrences. The unique transformation the monarch butterfly undergoes during its life cycle from egg, caterpillar (larva), chrysalis to the delicate yet resilient butterfly is wonderfully intriguing for students and teachers alike. Hanson Subaru will have a butterfly habitat planter on site and be giving away seed kits. Stop in and check it out. We also encourage you to be a butterfly hero and grow your own butterfly habitat at home. It's a great activity for the kids or grandkids!


Subaru Loves/ Learning  –  Hanson S

Subaru Loves/ Learning

Hanson Subaru was excited to support local communities in need, by collecting school supplies and funds during the month of August. Our focus was on local communities who have been hit hardest by the terrible fires that have plagued our state this year. Hanson Subaru was able to donate over $500.00 for school supplies through the Okanagan County Community Action Counsel. It is the hope of all who belong to the Hanson Subaru Family, that this assistance will in some small way lessen the burden on those hardest hit by this natural disaster.

Community Champions Week  –  Jolene B

Community Champions Week

On March 16, 2015 we were excited to host Hason Subaru at the Olympia Senior Center as our first Community Champions of 2015. It was quite the kick-off. The Hanson Subaru Team of Vince Hanson, Rob Little and Frank Kersul helped serve lunch and milk to the seniors at the center. After serving, they weren't done though, they then presented a check to Senior Services for South Sound for $19,198 from Subaru of America, Inc. to help the Meals On Wheels Program at Senior Services for South Sound. This check will help provide over 2,700 meals to seniors in our community! Thank you Hanson Subaru and Subaru of America, Inc.


Senior Emergency Food Drive for Meals On Wheels  –  Jolene B

Senior Emergency Food Drive for Meals On Wheels

Each year between October and December Hanson Subaru collects food at their dealership for the Senior Emergency Food Drive for Meals On Wheels. The food collected through this food drive is delivered to home-bound seniors in Mason and Thurston County who receive Meals On Wheels. It is provided to them as emergency food rations in case they are not able to receive their normal meal delivery due to weather conditions. This is truly a safety net for over 250 seniors in this community. In 2015, we were completely blown away when Vince Hanson and the Hanson Subaru staff delivered over 1,000 pounds of food to our Olympia Senior Center for distribution. The staff not only brought in the food but stayed and helped package the food and helped deliver some of the packages to our home bound seniors. This is such an important part of our Meals On Wheels program that couldn't be completed without the Hanson Subaru Team. We are so grateful for the ongoing partnership we have with Hanson Subaru. Thank you Hanson Subaru Team!

March for Meals Thurston County Kickoff

This is the second year that Hanson Subaru has hosted the Thurston County March for Meals Kick Off. This event kicks off a month long promotion raising awareness about Meals On Wheels and Senior Hunger in our community. Hanson Subaru staff help serve cake, set up for the event, and attend the event. They really make us feel welcome in their facility and help promote awareness about our programs in the community. Thank you Hanson Subaru for giving us a great start for this monthly long advocacy event!


Hanson Subaru Raises Awareness for Senior Services  –  Hanson S

Hanson Subaru Raises Awareness for Senior Services

During the December 2014 Subaru Love Promise Event, Hanson Subaru in cooperation with Senior Services of South Sound worked diligently toward raising awareness for all the Services that are provided for seniors in the Olympia Area. Senior Services was awarded $15000 through the Love Promise Event and the generosity of Hanson Subaru Customers giving back to our community. These direct contributions allowed Senior Services to expand their Senior Meals on Wheels Program and their Senior Outreach Program to additional Seniors in need. This also contributed to the Senior Food Banks ability to increase the number of meals provided for local Seniors on a daily basis.
