Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy.
Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.
It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.
In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.
We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.
At Wilkins Subaru we recognize not only our obligation to service the automotive needs of our customers, but just as importantly to support the interests and values to which they are committed.
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!

This Fall, Wilkins Subaru sponsored the Sowebo Landmark 5k race in Baltimore to benefit raising healthy kids. The family friendly 5k run/walk, began in Union Square Park and ran past Hollins Market, through the B&O Railroad Museum and down into Carroll Park and culminates back in Union Square. The Tangerine Orange 2014 Subaru Crosstrek XV was the official pacer car of the Sowebo Landmark 5k! Sowebo community residents teamed up with the Chesapeake Center for Youth Development (CCYD) and the Southwest Baltimore Charter School (SBCS) to stand up and get moving to prevent childhood obesity.

Wilkins Subaru joined forces with 14 local Non-Profit Pet Adoption Agencies, including the Greyhound Rescue, Inc, to create a fun and family environment while promoting the importance of pet adoption! The Wilkins Pet Adopt-A-Thon originated back in 2008 and has been a successful and exciting event that many people (and animals!) look forward to every year. This past year, Wilkins Subaru found homes to over 25 pets! Pet adoption should not stop here! Local animal rescues are continuously working hard to find the perfect family to adopt their lovable homeless animals.

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.
