The 2018 Subaru Love Promise Customer Commitment Award

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 Subaru of Glendale dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Love Promise Stories from Subaru of Glendale

Expanding Possibilities  –  Monica A

Expanding Possibilities

AbilityFirst is grateful to Subaru of Glendale and its customers for partnering with us through the “Share the Love” sales event. By supporting AbilityFirst, you stand alongside people with disabilities and their families. Together, we can fulfill our vision of a society that values each individual and provides the opportunity for all people to live full and productive lives: looking beyond disabilities, focusing on capabilities, expanding possibilities. The funds we receive from you will support AbilityFirst programs for children and adults with disabilities like autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, other intellectual/developmental disabilities, and other challenges. The AbilityFirst after school programs in Glendale and East Los Angeles (and four other locations in Los Angeles County) foster independence and community participation for children and youth who have moderate to profound disabilities. It also gives their families vital respite and support and a safe child care option. Program participants are between the ages of 6 and 22 years, and require significant personal care, have minor behavioral challenges, or are too old for traditional child care programs like the YMCA. (Youth with developmental disabilities can remain in high school, and in our program, until they reach the age of 22 years.) The program empowers children and youth to develop and discover their interests and abilities, and supports their personal and social growth. Activities include community outings, sports and recreational activities, shopping and cooking projects, music and dance, swim and water safety lessons, and special holiday events. Participants make friends, have fun, and learn to become more independent. Our staffing ratio of 1:5 allows us to provide full care as necessary, including feeding, changing, toileting, and transferring. Participants enjoy a culturally sensitive and stimulating environment that is also flexible and creative enough to encourage learning and fun. Your generosity will help youth like 17-year-old Caroline, who has been coming to the AbilityFirst since she was 7-1/2 years old. Caroline has two rare conditions that affect her growth and development. She communicates with some sign language, gestures with her head, and a smile that lights up the room! When she first came to AbilityFirst, the time, she used a wheelchair to get around. Today, she enjoys walking in the neighborhood with her friends at the center! Ten years ago, her mother never imagined that Caroline would one day be able to enjoy a movie at the theater, go shopping at the grocery store, help with the laundry, or climb on a the jungle gym in the center’s back yard! With support from our staff Caroline has learned to feed herself, make friends, play, and swim. Every year, AbilityFirst programs reach more than 2,000 children and adults with disabilities across greater Los Angeles. Community support and participation has sustained our work for 91 years. Thank you for being our partner and helping hundreds of individuals in our neighborhoods realize their potential and lead full and productive lives! AbilityFirst provides targeted programs that have a common mission: to help people with disabilities realize their full potential throughout their lives. Formed in 1926 to help children affected by the pre-vaccine polio epidemic, AbilityFirst pioneered some of the first community services in California for children with disabilities. Over time, programs expanded to include services for adults as well as children, and to reach individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities as well as physical challenges. Our programs are changing the lives of more than 2,000 individuals with disabilities and their families every year, and include: after school and full-day summer enrichment; adult life skills development; camping; job preparation, training and placement; AbilityFirst College to Career; social/recreational programming; warm water aquatics; and two group homes.


Subaru & California Southland Chapter of LLS  –  Toni H

Subaru & California Southland Chapter of LLS

When we here at the California Southland (CalSo) Chapter of LLS heard about the Subaru Loves to Care partnership, we immediately knew that we had to send the blankets to City of Hope. We have had a so many patients who are near and dear to us treated at City of Hope. One patient in particular who has truly inspired our chapter is five-year-old, Aubrey. She was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) at age 2 after experiencing a week long on and off temperature concentrated in her stomach area. Aubrey was treated at City of Hope, where she completed treatment on July 12, 2015. She will begin first grade in August, and she loves going to hula dance lessons and ballet. Her favorite color is blue. And because of amazing partners like Subaru, we know that Aubrey will one day fulfill her dream of seeing the Eiffel Tower. I have attached her picture. When we shared this partnership with our Chapter, all of our campaigns wanted to be involved to show their thanks and support. Your generosity has meant the world to not only our LLS volunteers, but to the staff and patients at City of Hope. We documented this journey from sign making to blanket delivery to Subaru’s impact. Thank you to Subaru National and the four dealerships from our area who donated the blankets: Puente Hills Subaru, Sierra Subaru of Monrovia, Subaru of Glendale, and Timmons Subaru. We hope you enjoy what this small chapter from Los Angeles has put together for you!


Doing Our Part To Save The Butterflies  –  Glendale S

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, Anytown 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 lifecycle from egg, caterpillar (larva), chrysalis to the delicate yet resilient butterfly is wonderfully intriguing for students and teachers alike. Anytown 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!


Going an Extra Step Foundation  –  Gladys M

Going an Extra Step Foundation

I would like to start off by saying"Thank You" for being a faithful supporter of "Going An Extra Step Foundation". As you know every year I link up with South Park Elementary located in South Central area, to seek out families who are in desperate need of a helping hand. Due to your kind generosity we were able to bless over 20 Families with Christmas Toys, Clothing and Fruit for this holiday season. God Bless you all and your families for having a giving heart! Respectfully, Pastor Gladys McGilber Godfrey


Helping to End Homelessness in Our Community  –  Sarah J

Helping to End Homelessness in Our Community

We are very honored to be supported by Subaru of Glendale; we know that business leaders in our community are a vital partner in Ascencia's work to end homelessness in the greater Glendale area. Every year we provide housing and support services to over 1,200 homeless men, women and children. In fact, we are the only comprehensive homeless service organization in the greater Glendale region. Our homeless clients come from throughout LA due to our inclusive admissions and range of services and housing. Ascencia primarily services homeless families, with an additional focus on chronically homeless adults, U.S. veterans and frequent utilizers of emergency medical services. We are proud to have led the reduction of veteran homelessness in Glendale to a functional zero in the City! With the level of comprehensive services we provide, we rely on support from our community in order to support our clients every step of the way out of homelessness. In December we were pleased to host a panel of nonprofit leaders where our Executive Director Natalie Profant Komuro shared about our participation in the "Share the Love" event. The panel was convened to discuss important social welfare issues in our community and included many important figures in nonprofit leadership. Again, we thank you for your support and we look forward to more opportunities to partner with Subaru in the coming year!
