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 Diablo Subaru of Walnut Creek

Blankets for local cancer patients  –  Fran I

Blankets for local cancer patients

On June 26, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Greater Bay Area Chapter partnered with Diablo Subaru of Walnut Creek to deliver 80 blankets and 10 arts & crafts kits to John Muir Medical Center, Walnut Creek. At John Muir, we were enthusiastically greeted by representatives from the Child Services department and the 5A Oncology/Respiratory unit. The nurses and social workers were thrilled to be receiving these beautiful gifts and could not thank Subaru enough! We also met Greg, who was diagnosed with AML when he was only 18 years old. After going through chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant, Greg is now a survivor of over 20 years! Everyone was inspired by Greg's story and was reminded how much small things – like a word of encouragement or a blanket – can help people going through difficult cancer treatment. Aaron and Garen from Diablo Subaru kindly helped us bring the boxes up to the fifth floor, where the rest of the Oncology/Respiratory unit staff came out to thank them for their generosity. We are so grateful to Diablo Subaru of Walnut Creek for supporting cancer patients in the local community!

Thank you Diablo Subaru of Walnut Creek for the beautiful blankets. Just as we were unloading them, a nurse from our Pediatric Intensive Care Unit asked if she could bring one to a child who had just suffered a near drowning so they are already being put to great use! I wanted to offer the opportunity for you and any members of your team to come tour either our Walnut Creek Campus or Oakland Facility in further detail. Thank you also for the wonderful assortment of "message of Hope" cards from your customers and team members and families.

Diablo Subaru of Walnut Creek has had a Food Bank barrel for collecting nonperishable food donations in their service department. They have collected a fantastic 1,294 pounds of food. This equates to 1,078 meals, and makes it possible for us to provide food to those in need. How do your donations help? John Jr. (age 6) and Marianna (age 8) are doing much better in school thanks to the healthy food they are receiving. John Sr. works hard every day but one income does not provide enough money to cover all of their expenses especially food. Mom Katerina saw our Food Bank truck driving by and gave us a call (the phone number is on the side of the truck). The family now visits one of our monthly food distributions, our mobile produce truck and a food pantry to receive additional nonperishable food (all made possible with the food you collected). Now that the children are both in school, mom Katerina, is going back to school to help provide a second income. At the end of the year of education and job placement, things will be looking much better for the family. Our community helps feeding this wonderful family and they will remember the food you provided that put them on the road to self-sufficiency. Next time Diablo Subaru of Walnut Creek's customers are in for service, please bring in a couple of nonperishable food items or even a full bag of food to donate. Together the Food Bank, Diablo Subaru of Walnut Creek and our community are ending hunger!

Diablo Subaru of Walnut Creek Loves Education

When Subaru of America added The SUBARU LOVES LEARNING event, I thought to help my daughter's school, Hope Academy for Dyslexics. My daughter Mariette is one of the original students that attended Hope Academy when it opened in 2007. I remember my wife and me donating endless hours for this school and wanting it to be able to reach out to all children that have dyslexia and other learning disabilities. Our General Manager Scott McAllister wanted input from local employee families for the event beneficiary. When I found out that Hope Academy was selected for the SUBARU LOVES LEARING event, I was very humbled and excited. My family and the faculty at Hope Academy are very grateful for this event and the donations and school supplies provided for this special school. Scott also offered to have my daughter Mariette join us and attend the day's event when we dropped off the donations and supplies to the school. Mariette was very excited to see the facility and teachers and be there as a recognizable face with Diablo Subaru of Walnut Creek. Again, I am very grateful for Hope Academy for helping my daughter succeed and for Diablo Subaru of Walnut Creek helping Hope Academy during the SUBARU LOVES LEARNING event. Darrell Grans

The Greenest Commute  –  Scott M

The Greenest Commute

Sometimes making the right choice means you might have to break a sweat. Many of us here at Diablo Subaru of Walnut Creek go the extra commute mile...by bike! That's right, as part of our green initiative we are taking to the streets on two wheels. Like most Subaru owners, we care deeply about the impact we have on our planet and when we're not out exploring the environment by Subaru on our days off, we do our best to preserve it by commuting when we can via the original no-emission vehicle: bicycle. The Greenest Commute at Diablo Subaru of Walnut Creek, it's who we are. Scott McAllister (General Manager) - rides a LeMond road bike. He also has a Trek mountain bike and a thick framed Fiore tandem. Dionysios Tsirkas (Sales) - Major, avid cyclist. Alan Wolfe (Service Technician/Shop Foreman) - rides a DiamondBack. 9.5 mile one-way commute Asif "Adam" Chaudhry (Internet Sales) - rides a DiamondBack mountain bike. 6 block commute. REALLY! Darryl Grans (Service Advisor) - rides a Giant Sedona road bike. 7.5 mile one-way commute.

Diablo Subaru partners with Tony La Russa's ARF

Diablo Subaru of Walnut Creek is so excited about their Share the Love hometown charity organization, Tony La Russa's Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF), that they held a pet adoption event. The entire team at Diablo Subaru of Walnut Creek is focused on helping ARF find 'Forever Homes' for pets who have run out of time at public shelters. Collectively, they then bring people and animals together and make Forever Homes. The team at Diablo Subaru of Walnut Creek feels strongly about this organization, so they contributed all of the adoption fees for this event to make it even easier for families wanting to take pets home. The ARF organization and Diablo Subaru will continue their partnership and charity offerings to find Forever Homes for these pets!
