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 Wilkins Subaru

Spreading Heartfelt Comfort and Messages of Hope

Wilkins Subaru teamed up with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Maryland Chapter to present 80 blankets and care cards to the Tate Cancer Center at the Baltimore Washington Medical Center to keep patients warm while undergoing treatment. Because Leukemia is the most common form of cancer in children, and 12 art and craft kits were presented for those kids in treatment. Of course, this would not have been possible without the support of our amazing and caring Wilkins Subaru customers. This gesture of warmth was presented by Sarah Fullerton, Product Specialist Manager, Wilkins Subaru joined by Sheronda Booker, Donor Development Director, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to Crystal Edwards, Executive Director, Tate Cancer Center, Dr. Cherif Boutros, Medical Director, Tate Cancer Center, and the Clinicians and Medical Team of BWMC’s Tate Cancer Center.


Spirit of Excellence  –  Jeanette B

Spirit of Excellence

I am very pleased with the experience I had at Wilkins Subaru. I would not have ordinarily gone that far from home to purchase an automobile that was available at dealerships closer to my home. However, I am not sure that the others could have given me the confidence that I had in believing what I was told. You see, I am not a little suspicious because I am a recent widow and have been taken advantage of and I had not purchased an automobile in about a decade. Wilkins' team put my mind and heart at ease. The team was, in my opinion, very knowledgeable, raised my confidence, came over as being honest and truthful with me. They answered my questions with patience and explained things in a way that I could understand. I am pleased with the whole transaction. I can say that they have a winning team and I have already begun telling folk what a great car the Subaru is and that they will not be disappointed if they visit Wilkins Subaru. I was impressed with the follow-up call in just 24 hours. A class act team.

Wilkins Subaru in Glen Burnie chose Cool Kids Campaign as its hometown charity for the 2015 Share the Love Campaign. Cool Kids Campaign is a local nonprofit dedicated to improving the quality of life for children with cancer and their families. The foundation is so grateful for the support of Wilkins Subaru. Through Share the Love, they raised $20,000 to be used to help fund programs to help these kids going through cancer treatment and their families. The money that was donated is being used to help start the first ever Cool Kids Camp, which is the only overnight pediatric oncology camp in Maryland for both patients and siblings. We could not do what we do without Wilkins Subaru!

Maryland Food Bank partnership helps sponsor Hungry/Spring Forward Food Drive

During the week of March 1st of 2014, Wilkins Subaru partnered up with the Maryland Food Bank to sponsor the Harvest for the Hungry/Spring Forward Food Drive. We encouraged our employees and community to provide monetary or food donations during this week long challenge! Did you know: donating $1 can provide 2 full meals? That is why Wilkins Subaru made it our mission to donate $500 for every Subaru Forester that was filled high with non-perishable goods. Wilkins Subaru employees love to give back to the community, and it is always great to see our customers do too! Other organizations that participated in the Harvest for the Hungry/Spring Forward Food drive are AARP, Safeway, the Girl Scouts, WBAL, and the post office.
