The 2019 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.

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.

Lithia Subaru of Oregon City Grants Wishes  –  Mallory T

Clementine is 6 years old, loves reading, dancing, pirates and princesses. She also experienced a very serious, life-threatening hemorrhage of blood vessels in her brain earlier this year. Thanks to a successful surgery, she is recovering and has regained mobility. Tony's team at Lithia Subaru joined efforts with Make-A-Wish Oregon to grant a very special wish for Clementine to go to Walt Disney World Resort to be a princess! This opportunity will allow her family to spend time together and heal. On June 21, Clementine was surprised as she walked through the doors at Lithia Subaru and was welcomed by a crowd of employees, friends and family members who shared that her one-true wish was becoming a reality. Huge thanks to our friends at Lithia Subaru for hosting a special princess-themed celebration in her honor complete with Miss Oregon and Miss Outstanding Teen Oregon. Make-A-Wish Oregon grants the wishes of children 2 1/2 - 18 years of age who are battling a critical illness. Wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give a child a higher chance of survival. We are thankful for community partners like Lithia Subaru for making wishes come true for these very special children. Thank you!

Clackamas County Foster Parent Appreciation Dinner  –  Brianna W

May is National Foster Parent Appreciation Month and on May 1, Clackamas County DHS organized an appreciation dinner to honor foster parents from Clackamas County. Our goal was to send each family home with a gift or two from a local business to increase their feeling of community support. We were able to accomplish our goal, due in large part to Subaru’s generous donation of restaurant gift cards and movie tickets. General Manager, Tony Jimenez, was eager to contribute to our cause and was instrumental in helping us give back to our foster parents. Thank you Tony and Oregon City Subaru, for partnering with us to serve our community this year! And thank you to our foster parents! Every child deserves to be safe and in a caring and loving home. Learn how you can help: helpafosterchild.oregon.gov.


Subaru and NWF Love the Earth!  –  Lisa N

Our habitat project involved over 25 students weeding, planting and cleaning up the space. It is now a beautiful space with plants, flowers, a bird bath, a little path and is a wonderful space outside our building. This project has inspired others to create a raised bed project. So we also have added six raised beds to our ongoing efforts! We are very excited about our habitat and garden spaces.


Lithia Animal Lovers Power OHS Snuggle Express  –  Jane M

Oregon Humane Society (OHS) just finished its 4th year of Snuggle Express, a program where OHS brings kittens and puppies to local businesses to bring joy to all and reduce stress for employees during the holiday season. Some businesses choose to donate so that the Snuggle Express can go to local schools. We are able to raise money for a great cause and provide awareness for animal adoptions and all of the things we at OHS do. Lithia Subaru was instrumental by providing a fleet of Subarus to transport these furry little buddies to local businesses. Oregon City Subaru has been our partner in this endeavor since the inception. This year Mother Nature made Snuggle Express much more challenging. If had just been the storms alone, our friends at Lithia Subaru and their intrepid Outbacks and Foresters would not have let a little thing like snow get in the way of OHS transporting puppies and kitties. But the weather in Portland was so severe all schools and businesses were closed; roads were impassable. In the following weeks, storms caused us to reschedule the Snuggle Express Days over and over, til we could visit all of the companies and schools who were signed up for the Snuggle Express. In their generous spirit, our friends at Lithia Subaru, allowed us to continue to borrow their vehicles for the Snuggle Express. If it were not for the compassionate animal-lovers at Lithia, Snuggle Express would not have become a reality.


Christmas 911 - Oregon City Police Department  –  Chris W

Thank you Ryan Vaughan for supporting our Christmas 911 Project at Oregon City Police Department.


Oregon City Police Department Christmas 911  –  Chris W

Christmas 911 started with Tom Gaumer, a retired deputy chief for the Stockton Police Department in California who investigates cold cases for the Oregon City Police Department. The first toy drive was small and unnamed. Gaumer collected donations from local churches and Oregon City residents. Police staff wrapped the gifts and the officers delivered them. In 2012 the program was named Christmas 911. Police Officers and Detectives have the opportunity to recommend children they have worked with during the past year for the Christmas 911 project. Oregon City residents and businesses adopt these children for the Christmas season. Gifts are purchased and delivered to the police department for distribution the week of Christmas. This year OC Police was fortunate to have Oregon City Subaru partner with OCPD and held a toy drive. These toys were delivered to the police department and then wrapped for the Police Officers to hand out to children through the holiday season. Oregon City Police Department is fortunate to have such a great partnership with Ryan Vaughan and Oregon City Subaru! "OCPD really does have Santa's in Squad Cars"
