We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.
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.
On May 20th Hanson Subaru helped me set up a trade show booth for a school project . I got to interview the owner of the dealership and learn about the car industry. With the help of Hanson Subaru bringing in a Tent, 2016 Subaru Outback, brochures and stuff to give away they made my project a huge success.

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.
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!
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.
During the month of April we had huge success with our E-Waste Recycling Event. We gathered Hundreds of pounds of electronics from around the community to be disposed of properly. We would like to thank the community for their efforts.
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.
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!
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!
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.
