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 over $28 million to the ASPCA and through Subaru Loves Pets has helped support the rescue, transport, adoption and well-being of over 230,000 animals across the country. 

Environment

Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.

Since 2018, Subaru has partnered with TerraCycle.  Participating Subaru retailers collect hard-to-recycle trash that was headed to local landfills. We collect approximately 2 tons of this hard-to-recycle trash monthly, which will be converted to furnishings and other usable items and donated locally.

Education

It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.

Since 2015 Subaru, in partnership with the American Association for the Advancement Science, donated over 277,600 award-winning science books.  In addition, through our partnerships with Staples and Adoptaclassroom.org we supported teachers and students with donations of S400,000 in gift cards and school supplies. 

Community

In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.

In 2020, Subaru and its retailers made a donation to Feeding America to provide 50 million meals to help feed people in need during the COVID-19 crisis,* making meals available at 199 local food banks across the country.
*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks. 

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.

Since 2016, Subaru and its retailers have partnered with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to donate over 167,000 blankets and 21,500 arts & crafts kits and reached nearly 150,000 patients in more than 780 hospitals nationwide.

Working in partnership with the City of Evansville, Wesselman Nature Society provides environmental education and outdoor recreation experiences designed to awaken the senses and enrich the lives of area residents and visitors. Executive Director, Robyn Johnston-Deem said, “We have a lot of different programs that we run here. We are big on recycling and we also have educational programs that teach children about science and the animals as well as encouraging kids to get outside and disconnect with technology and slow down and go outside and actually play.” At Wesselman Woods they strive to protect, conserve, and be good stewards of the environment. Romain is proud to partner with Wesselman woods and help draw awareness to the great things they are doing around our community.

They are passionate about implementing regular programs on behavioral education in schools and community events and interweaving animals into our local activities to strengthen the human-animal bond. Vanderburgh Humane Society CEO, Kendall Paul said, “I’ve found that this is something that I truly believe in and it inspires me to get up every day because I know what we are doing, is making a huge difference in this community.

Giving Back to The Ronald McDonald House  –  Kendal V

In an effort to spread hope, love and warmth to critically ill children in our local community, Romain Subaru donated 80 blankets and 10 arts & crafts kits to Ronald McDonald House of the Ohio Valley as part of a larger Subaru of America, Inc. initiative called Subaru Loves to Care. Throughout June, Romain Subaru asked customers to share personal messages of hope to accompany the blankets. The Subaru Loves to Care initiative reflects the Subaru goal to improve the health, wellness and lives of those in the local communities where we live and work.

Romain Subaru Shares Love to Patients  –  Shelia G

On June 15th, Romain Subaru and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society celebrated the 2nd Annual Subaru Loves to Care Program at St. Vincent Hospital. Five year old leukemia survivor, Avery Murphy, joined the St. Vincent Hospital staff along with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Campaign Director, Shelia Gustafson, for this recognition in the Prayer Garden. This national partnership between LLS and Subaru provides blankets and art kits to patients who are being treated for cancer. Romain Subaru provided 80 blankets, 20 art kits and Care Cards signed by Subaru customers to give to local patients. When Avery and her mother saw all the Care Cards, they were thrilled. A few years ago when Avery was going through treatment, she received a bag of Valentines Day cards on a day she was getting her chemo infusion. Her mother said the 1.5 hour wait went by very quickly that day because Avery spent the whole time reading the cards. Even though Avery is out of treatment she still has the bag of cards and reads them periodically. Avery and her mother know that the Care Cards will be cherished by the patients who will receive them.
