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.

How is Fred Beans Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve it as well.

Starting the Harvest  –  Eileen A

Starting the Harvest

The Hope of the Harvest is a consortium of farmers and volunteer organizations that help provide fresh produce for the food banks of Bucks County Pennsylvania. The Farmers, who participate, donate a portion of their crops as they harvest them throughout the year. The crops are delivered to a central locations where they are packaged and distributed by volunteers through charitable organizations. Delaware Valley University, in Doylestown Pennsylvania, has a large Agricultural Science Program. They have their own farm and market that features their crops as well as those from local growers. We at Fred Beans Subaru volunteer at the farm throughout the year. Our first assignment this year was planting potatoes. The students work with the volunteers making it a learning experience as well. We've learned a lot about plants and growing. The program is a great example of how volunteerism and education can work hand in hand to develop skills and provide nutrition for those in need. We are very proud to be associated with the farm through our partners at the Bucks County Opportunity Council.


Operation Helping Hand  –  Bucks County O

Operation Helping Hand

Operation Helping Hand is a , a county-wide food drive to benefit the food pantries of Bucks County. Fred Beans Subaru is a participant and will be a dedicated drop off point for all donations. Through the Opportunity Council we were partnered with a local pantry. We thank all of those who participated in our drive. We know the food will go to those in need especially during the upcoming storms. We cherish our relationships with the Bucks County Opportunity Council and The United Way of Bucks County. They do a great service to the community and we look forward to future partnership drives throughout the year.


Tools for Learning  –  Eileen A

Tools for Learning

Fred Beans Subaru sponsored a first grader by purchasing the supplies needed to attend his first big day. The Back to School Sponsorship Program is arranged through the Bucks County Opportunity Council. As a sponsor you receive the list of necessary school supplies for the student. A backpack full of necessities was dropped off to the council for delivery to the student in need. Memories of #2 pencils, glue sticks and pencil boxes all come back from the past. We hope that by fulfilling these needs, a young boy can attend his first day of school with a little less anxiety and be prepared with the tools to learn. Subaru and Fred Beans Love Learning!!

Representatives from the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Fred Beans Subaru presented more than 50 blankets to leaders at The Cancer Institute on June 30. Subaru of America partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) in June, which is Subaru’s “Loves to Care” month. During the month, LLS and participating Subaru retailers across the country provided blankets and messages of hope to patients undergoing cancer treatment at local hospitals and treatment centers. Visitors to Fred Beans Subaru in Doylestown were given the chance to share personalized messages to patients in their community. Those who wrote a message of hope received a Subaru and LLS awareness bracelet, to help spread awareness of LLS and Subaru of America’s goal to provide encouragement for cancer patients. “These gifts and messages are important to our patients as they continue the course of care,” said Laura Heacock, a nurse practitioner with The Cancer Institute’s Survivorship Clinic. “Every thoughtful word and kind gesture means so much as patients look ahead to recovery and survivorship.”

We Are Family  –  Helene E

We Are Family

From the time we parked our car at Puente Hills Subaru, we felt welcomed. Lloyd, our salesman, greeted us like long lost family members. He listened...really listened, and helped us find the perfect car for our needs. We left with a Brand new 2015 Outback that we love! We have taken many road trips in comfort: moving our daughters in and out of their college dorms and enjoying all the southwest has to offer on vacations. My Outback also takes me to school everyday. I would love to fill the car up with school supplies for my second grade class!

Fred Beans Subaru made its second annual contribution to the SPCA of Lahaska upon the culmination of our Fill A Forester Campaign. This year's event ended with an "Animal's as Therapy" gathering at the dealership. No admission was charged but attendees were asked to contribute a food item for the campaign. This final drive helped to fill the Forester to its capacity and made our final drive a plentiful one for the needy animals. We would like to thank everyone that contributed to the campaign. The SCPA of Bucks County is always in need of donations. We are happy to do our part as we know that Subaru owners are pet lovers and appreciate the partnership that we have developed during the campaigns. We hope to build on this relationship and make each year better that the last. We will be kicking off our new campaign in the spring. We are always accepting donations for the society. We offer commemorative leashes and Frisbees for your pets as a token of our gratitude. Attendees at the Therapy Event went home with some doggy bags loaded with pet toys. We?ll be sure to offer the same at our spring event. If you would like to attend or participate in our next Animal Therapy Event, feel free to contact us.

The project uses college land to grow fresh, nutritious food for area food pantries. It was started in 2012 with one acre on Del Val's main campus in Doylestown. During the first year, the project produced nearly 16,000 pounds of produce for people in need in the area.
