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 John Kennedy Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

John Kennedy Subaru's Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits.

Love Promise Stories from John Kennedy Subaru

Einstein Medical & John Kennedy Loves To Care  –  Monique R

Einstein Medical & John Kennedy Loves To Care

On July 7th, 2017 The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) of Eastern PA and John Kennedy Subaru teamed up to deliver blankets, cards and craft kits to patients going through cancer treatment at Einstein Medical Center East Norriton. Many representative of the Hospital and Subaru retailer were in attendance to present the blankets. Photos were taken upstairs in in the Oncology office in the Minerva D. Braemer Medical Arts Building on the campus of Einstein Medical Center which were then sent for publication in the local newspaper. The Einstein medical staff was very pleased be a recipient of the blankets and appreciative of the Subaru Loves To Care campaign. LLS and Subaru hope that a patient’s spirit was lifted by the delivery of these blankets.


2017 Mostly Muttz Rescue Check Presentation  –  April and Mary M

2017 Mostly Muttz Rescue Check Presentation

We are so thankful to have received this generous donation from John Kennedy Subaru in Plymouth Meeting. A chunk of this money is being used to fund heart surgery for a very special puppy named Gwinnie. Gwinnie was born in our care in November of 2016 and for the first 6 weeks she was a happy, healthy puppy, but then she started not being able to hold her food down. We recognized immediately that she had a condition called MegaEsophagus and on xray, we could see that it was being cause by a blood vessel that had no dissolved properly in-utero which was now constricting her esophagus and not allowing normal puppy kibble to pass into her stomach. Gwinnie was diagnosed with Persistant Right Aortic Arch (PRAA) and surgery is the only way to the fix issue or eventually, she would die from lack of nutrition. We were very lucky that she was a candidate for the minimally invasive surgery at the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary Hospital. Gwinnie had her surgery on April 13th, it was successful and she did so well, she came home the next day! She is recovering well and we anticipate she will live a long and happy life in part from the generous donation from John Kennedy Subaru! The picture below is Gwinnie coming home from surgery.


Valley Forge National Park Recycling Project  –  Scott N

Valley Forge National Park Recycling Project

John Kennedy Subaru is fortunate to be located near one of our nation's most historical sites, Valley Forge National Historical Park. Valley Forge is a fee-free park open year-round and sees nearly two million visitors annually. With more than 3,600 acres of rolling hills and well-worn trails, Valley Forge is now a magnet for runners, bicyclists and picnickers as well as history buffs. Numerous events are held each year including the Valley Forge Revolutionary 5-Mile Run every April. Anthony Barone, the General Manager of John Kennedy Subaru, was visiting the park last year and came up with connecting the dealership and Subaru's focus on the environment with the national park somehow. After speaking to Liz Gustafson, the Corporate Partnerships Coordinator for the National Park Foundation, Anthony's offer to supply recycling bins for park events was warmly welcomed. On April 17, 2016, the John Kennedy Subaru recycling bins made their debut at the Revolutionary 5-Mile Run and was helpful in making the event a little more environment-friendly.


Mostly Muttz Rescue Receives Share The Love Check  –  John Kennedy S

Mostly Muttz Rescue Receives Share The Love Check

With the backdrop of an April snow shower, Anthony Barone, the General Manager of John Kennedy Subaru, presented a check for $6,641 to the Mostly Muttz Rescue for being the Hometown Charity during Subaru’s Share The Love Event at the end of last year. On Saturday, April 9th when the Delaware Valley saw a rare spring snow, the service drive at John Kennedy Subaru went to the dogs; adoptable dogs that is. The wonderful volunteers of Mostly Muttz Rescue brought a bunch of their furry friends with the goal of trying to find loving homes for them. Mostly Muttz Rescue is an IRS registered, 501(c)3, public charity that is an all-volunteer, foster based canine rescue striving to keep man’s best friend from dying alone in the shelter system. They do not limit their life saving efforts to just those dogs that will be the easiest placements, but often choose to save dogs suffering from curable illness within the shelter system. The people at Mostly Muttz believe every dog, regardless of health, deserves at least a fighting chance to live, to love and to be loved for the entirety of their life. If you’re interested in fostering or adopting a dog from Mostly Muttz Rescue, you can visit their website; http://www.mostlymuttz.org or email mostlymuttz@gmail.com.

Home At Last Dog Rescue Meet & Greet Event  –  Lauren R

Home At Last Dog Rescue Meet & Greet Event

What's becoming a tradition at John Kennedy Subaru happened to the delight of many dogs looking for homes and new families. John Kennedy Subaru held a "Meet & Greet Event" in their renovated facility on Saturday, March 14th of this year. The wonderful volunteers from Home At Last Dog Rescue from North Wales in Pennsylvania, brought adoptable dogs for interested families to meet. Applications were filled out to adopt or foster one of the dogs and those who were not ready to adopt or foster but still wanted to help brought food and supplies to donate to Home At Last Dog Rescue. Subaru has a special affinity from dog lovers and that's why John Kennedy Subaru continues their relationship with the good people at Home At Last Dog Rescue. This relationship was highlighted with John Kennedy Subaru naming Home At Last Dog Rescue as their Hometown Charity during the Subaru Share The Love campaign at the end of 2014. This Meet & Greet Event was special this year because John Kennedy Subaru handed over a check for $11,500 to the good folks at Home At Last Dog Rescue as a result of John Kennedy Subaru's participation in the Share The Love campaign. It was quite a surprise for Home At Last Dog Rescue! To learn more about Home At Last Dog Rescue, visit their website at HomeAtLastDogRescue.com
