The 2018 Subaru Love Promise Customer and Community 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.

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.

Love Promise Stories from Modesto Subaru

HAVEN Heroes  –  Denise H

HAVEN Heroes

For the past several years Modesto Subaru has partnered with Haven Women's Center to bring Walk a Mile in Her Shoes to downtown Modesto. This community awareness event on the impact of sexual assault is HAVEN's largest fundraiser and it would not be the same without the support and enthusiasm that the sales team and management bring while strutting in their red high heels! As a sponsor of this event, Modesto Subaru plays an intricate part in helping us to ensure that HAVEN's services continue without interruption. It takes a team of like minded individuals to make a positive influence on the work we do. Thank you, Modesto Subaru, for standing with HAVEN, and aligning Love Promise to those we serve. We greatly appreciate all that you do!


Modesto Subaru Love Shared in Neighborhood  –  Rhonda A

Modesto Subaru Love Shared in Neighborhood

Much appreciation to Modesto Subaru for supporting La Loma Neighborhood's dream of developing a native plant garden on a neglected piece of property. Their team of employees provided labor and time to plant, spread rock and mulch and whatever work needed to be done. Modesto Subaru also donated funds to help with the cost of irrigation supplies, acquiring boulders for landscape enhancement, and even a dog waste station for the neighbors to use. Their support made a huge difference in the success of the project! We are grateful for their commitment to the environment, as the native garden provides a habitat for native pollinators and showcases the value of native plants to our community. Modesto Subaru has an outstanding staff, who work hard to share their commitment to improving our community. Thank you for all your support!


Modesto Subaru Shares the Love  –  Jessica I

Modesto Subaru Shares the Love

Our partnership with Subaru and Subaru of Modesto is one of our most valued relationships. Not only do we appreciate them as partners and donors, but we appreciate them as friends who sincerely care about our community. From November 16, 2017 to January 2, 2017, Modesto Subaru participated in Subaru of America's Share the Love Event. During Share the Love, anyone who bought or leased a new Subaru was given the option to have Subaru of America donate $250 to charity. For the fourth year in a row, Modesto Subaru selected Center for Human Services (CHS) as their local charity. CHS' marketing team produced a music video to "Put a Little Love in Your Heart" (inspired by the national campaign) that starred Subaru and CHS employees and was featured on Facebook and YouTube (you can see photos of us making the video here). We had a blast dancing and singing with the Modesto Subaru staff! This year, Modesto Subaru raised close to $61,000 during Share the Love and we are so grateful. The money raised helped support Pathways, CHS' transitional living program for homeless young adults. The transitional living shelter housed 28 young people throughout the year. During their time with us they received job readiness training and support, life skills classes, mentoring, counseling, and more. This was made possible, in large part, due to the support of this event. We cannot thank Modesto Subaru enough for their continued generosity, friendship, and passion for improving our community.

Love Modesto and Modesto Subaru have teamed up to benefit the community.

We are looking forward to the partnership this year with Modesto Subaru heading up many amazing projects such as the La Loma Native Plant Garden, Beautify Home for a Senior Citizen in Need and the Dry Creek Clean Up. To show their support Modesto Subaru has wrapped a Subaru Outback for us to take out to our community events. We are collecting signatures on the vehicle and with each signature Modesto Subaru with donate $1 back to the Love Modesto cause. #SubaruLovesModesto

Modesto Subaru Shares the Love

From November 17, 2016 to January 3, 2017 Modesto Subaru participated in Subaru of America's Share the Love Event. During Share the Love, anyone who bought or leased a new Subaru was given the option to have Subaru of America donate $250 to charity. For the third year in a row, Modesto Subaru selected Center for Human Services (CHS) as their local charity. This year, Modesto Subaru also provided a wrapped car for the event which we drove around the county collecting signatures from community members and friends of CHS. This year, Modesto Subaru raised over $55,000 during Share the Love and we are so grateful. This donation will make a real impact in the lives of youth and families in our community. In addition to the money they raised for CHS through Share the Love, Modesto Subaru donated $2500 for the signatures collected on the car. We cannot say thank you enough to Modesto Subaru for their continued support, generous spirit and passion for improving our community.


beyond the promise  –  James L

beyond the promise

2013 Forester; 56K miles; oil consumption issue. Modesto Subaru handled the entire experience with class. From explanation; "testing"; replacing short block; handing me a 2017 Outback loaner for the duration. All with courtesy and a smile. Amazing service (I've been driving 40 miles for 4 years for oil changes etc and don't regret a minute of it). Modesto Subaru Service Department "models" great service and recovery!

Subaru Shares the Love

For the second year in a row Modesto Subaru participated in Subaru of America's Share the Love event. Anyone who purchased or leased a new Subaru during the campaign was given the option to have Subaru of America donate $250 to charity. Center for Human Services (CHS) was Modesto Subaru's hometown charity once again and we couldn't be more grateful. Because of the commitment from their sales staff and General Manager, they recently presented us with a check for over $50,000. This is far and above what they did last year. Over $40,000 was raised by Modesto Subaru and because they performed so well, Subaru of America added another $10,000. For us, funds like these are critical. Often, the grants and contracts that make our work possible fall short of fully being able to meet our internal needs and the needs of youth and families we serve. These funds will immediately impact the lives of youth and families throughout Modesto and Stanislaus County through our 2 shelters, prevention and education programs, mental health counseling, drug and alcohol treatment programs, and family resource centers. This partnership remains strong. The love and commitment we feel from Modesto Subaru is mutual. Subaru clearly understands the importance of corporate philanthropy and everyone who works there gives back in some way. To all of you, thank you for sharing the love. The lives of many youth and families will be changed because of you and your generous customers.


The Butterfly Heroes at Modesto Subaru! - Modesto  –  Reggie W

The Butterfly Heroes at Modesto Subaru! - Modesto

The Monarch butterfly is a familiar favorite of many of our childhoods. Unfortunately, the decline in milkweed plants that are the only natural home for Monarch larvae has caused the Monarch population to plummet by over 90% in recent years. To help raise awareness to this issue, Modesto Subaru has partnered with the National Wildlife Federation for the Butterfly Heroes program as part of our Subaru Loves the Earth initiative during the month of April. Want to learn more about how you can join us in our effort? Stop by our store to get information on the Butterfly Heroes program and pick up a pack of seeds to start your own butterfly habitat.


E-Waste Recyling Event  –  Brooke I

E-Waste Recyling Event

Modesto Subaru held an E-Waste recycling event with all of their employees and customers. It was hugely successful and we were able to collect many old items for recycling. It generated a great response and support from our Subaru customer base.

Subaru Shares the Love

In late 2014-early 2015, Modesto Subaru participated in Subaru of America's Share the Love event. Anyone who purchased or leased a new Subaru during the campaign was given the option to have Subaru of America donate $250 to charity. Center for Human Services (CHS) was Modesto Subaru's hometown charity and we couldn't be more grateful. Because of their efforts they recently presented our local nonprofit a check for $18,973. For us, funds like these are critical. Often, the grants and contracts that make our work possible fall short of fully being able to meet our internal needs and the needs of people living in our community. This nearly $19,000 will immediately impact the lives of youth and families throughout Modesto and Stanislaus County through our 2 shelters, prevention and education programs, mental health counseling, drug and alcohol treatment programs, and family resource centers. This partnership is strong. The love and commitment we feel from Modesto Subaru is mutual. The Subaru brand is lived by this dealership and the people who work there and it shows in their commitment to our community and to CHS. Subaru, thank you for sharing the love. A difference in the lives of youth and families will be made because of you and your generous customers.
