The 2019 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.

Center Subaru Love Promise Drop Off  –  Stephen M

My trip to Torrington was unique, to say the least. On my drive over I experienced heavy rain to the point it was difficult to see. I think that the folks from Subaru experienced this as well. I think that this speaks as a metaphor for just what LLS and Subaru are trying to accomplish. Rain or shine (within the realm of safety) we were not about to let down our obligations to the patients. That is what it is all about. Every day it gives me perspective, and every day I am thankful that I have an opportunity to drive in the rain, and while this world can be wet, or cold, or difficult, we can pull through and find a way together through support and love, and speaks to the Love Promise Campaign. A promise is something you keep, and I was not going to let this rain storm get in my way. On my way out, I received a smile from an individual in the waiting room, and it made me think of how every move we make every single day impacts so many people, and to continue to make that a positive impact.

Subaru helping in the time of need.  –  Timothy W

We are a family of Subaru owners, I have a 2007 Impreza, my husband has a 2005 Baja, My son owns a 2002 WRX and my daughter has a 2011 Legacy. When my husband had his friend stop over with his work truck he parked in our snowy yard and proceed to get stuck. My husband then connected his Baja to the truck and pulled the truck out without any problem. I thought he was crazy and took video to either see if his Baja would be destroyed or if it would really work. (I forgot to mention that the truck was a tractor trailer cab). My husband said that he had faith his Baja could do it and he was right! Below I will attach the video as proof. I think this would make a great video for a commercial. We LOVE our Subaru’s! Sincerely Donna Wilde Plymouth,Ct

Overlook Blacksox 12u Baseball World Series 2017  –  Walter F

With the generosity of Subaru of America, the Overlook Blacksox 12u baseball team out of Waterbury,CT was able to attend the 2017 AABC PEE WEE REECE World Series held in Shelton,WA just outside of Seattle. We were able to use the donation to help offset the travel expense that was incurred by each family to attend this once in a lifetime event. Memories were made for each of the kids and we participated in a total of 5 games with a final record of 3 wins and 2 losses securing third place. We appreciate Subaru’s dedication to the community and willingness to lend a helping hand for the boys. My wife and I have a personal relationship with Center Subaru and recently bought our 8 th vehicle from that location. When presented with the request they did not hesitate to see what they could do to help. It was above and beyond what we could have expected.

Love Promise Delivery  –  Daniela H

On July 26, 2017 LLS staff member Brandy Sinisi met with Marketing Director Kim Bourke and her team from Center Subaru (Torrington, CT), to deliver craft kits, blankets and messages of hope, to Charlotte Hungerford Hospital’s Center for Cancer Care. We were greeted by Pam and a few other of the staff at the facility who very grateful for donation to their patients. Pam was already thinking about how she would be able to reach as many patients as possible with these generous donations. She was excited to be able to give them to the patients they treated in the facility and also share them with the facility upstairs that sees other cancer patients. They were also very touched by the many messages of hope they had received from people who had taken the time to write them out not knowing who they might end up with. Kim and her team were able to move into the facility over 60 blankets and two boxes of craft kits. Pam and her team are so focused on comfort and care for each of the patients that is treated in this facility they were proud to show off the healing garden, koi pond and walking trail they have to offer on their property. These are for use for patients, caregivers and even for those who just need a quiet place to reflect. This indeed was a touching delivery that left everyone who attended relaxed, knowing these donations will go to great use!

Subaru and NWF Loves the Earth  –  Tara C

Our school community has worked very hard to create a beautiful school garden! With the help from Center Subaru, we have created a beautiful habitat for butterflies, bees, birds, and even an occasional bear that wanders in to our school yard with the hopes of getting some bird seed! Lowe’s donated our beautiful fence a few years back. And many local businesses including O & G, Supreme Industries, Thorncrest Farm, and Bantam Tile donated items such as cinder blocks, mulch, manure, tile for decorative purposes on the cinder blocks. We harvest the food that is grown inside the garden walls to make salsa, and other types of food in the fall for our Harvest Festival. The kids have been trying to identify what types of birds visit our bird feeder and live in our bird house!
