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.

Love Promise Stories from Ramsey Subaru

Subaru and Ramsey Subaru believe in making a positive impact on the communities in which we live and work. We uphold that belief through our Love Promise Community Commitment. Every month, we select inspiring stories from customers and partners from around our area who strive to support our collective commitment and feature them here

Ramsey Subaru  –  Lisa G

Community Impact: Ramsey SubaruEvery parent wants the best for their child whether that child is 2, 22, or 42. That driving need is what led Ramsey Subaru owner’s Beth and Arthur Picciano to REED Academy, a private, non-profit school in Bergen County, New Jersey, for individuals with autism ages three to 21. Like so many other parents, they were desperate to find the right education for their young daughter.While their daughter graduated from REED Academy over a decade ago, Beth, Art, and the entire Ramsey Subaru team have remained a steadfast partner and an integral part of REED’s DNA. “REED has given my family so much over the years, and early on I felt it was my job to give back,” Beth has explained. “We are all part of this community, brought together because of a common goal—and each of us can contribute different things to keep the community strong and help it grow.”New Jersey has the highest rates of autism in the country, with a staggering rate of 1 in 34.Through numerous initiatives, Ramsey Subaru has stepped up in support of REED and the autism community at large. In 2008, the team helped to launch Go the Distance for Autism, North Jersey’s largest charity cycling event. Since its inception, the annual family-friendly event has raised over $7 million, which has benefitted four leading programs for individuals with autism (REED Academy among them). At REED, Go the Distance for Autism funds have gone directly to ensuring we have the latest communication-enabling technology for students, securing save transportation for students into the community, and providing life-saving swim instruction. Beyond their generous sponsorship, Ramsey has rallied the local community year-after-year to ride, donate and volunteer. Their support hasn’t stopped there. As the 4th-time recipient of Subaru’s Share the Love program, their donations have gone far in helping REED move beyond the school setting to support adults with autism. At age 21, public resources for this population virtually disappears. They’re no longer eligible for state-funded education, and adult programs and services are few and far between. Without daily assistance, these young men and women can lose their acquired skills—from daily care habits like making their own lunch and getting dressed by themselves to crucial life skills like language. Support for this population is critical. In 2018, thanks to the generous support from Ramsey Subaru, REED launched is first day program offering clients pre-vocational and vocational training, volunteer and paid employment opportunities, community integration, peer mentoring and assistance with daily life skills.And this summer, our partnership has truly gone full circle as Beth and Art’s daughter joined REED’s college internship program! Thanks to the entire Ramsey Subaru team, and their unwavering commitment, we can continue to support individuals with autism throughout their lifetime so that they can learn, live, work and thrive in their communities.


Ramsey Subaru champions Pony Power Therapies  –  Kerry B

Ramsey Subaru has been a steadfast supporter of Pony Power Therapies, donating $15,000 to the organization in the past two years. Pony Power is a nonprofit organization in Mahwah, NJ that uses horses and an accessible farm to enhance the physical, social, and emotional well-being of children and adults in need of extra support. We provide therapeutic horseback riding lessons, horse-assisted learning, and nature-based activities to over 180 individuals a week, thanks to the generosity of our community partners, including Ramsey Subaru. Ramsey Subaru is one of our biggest supporters! They sponsor and participate in our 2 biggest fundraisers each year - our Horse Show & Community Fair and our Golf & Tennis Outing. We rely on these events to make up a significant part of our annual budget. The funds raised allow us to offer programs to a variety of people in the community, including, but not limited to: people with Autism Spectrum Disorder, children battling cancer, inner city girls experiencing mental health crises, teens with social anxiety, medically fragile children, folks with cerebral palsy, and adults with developmental disabilities. Thank you, Ramsey Subaru, for helping us use horses to help people!


Employees deliver warmth to Morristown Medical  –  michelle e

On June 4th, Subaru employees enjoyed visiting the patient art show at Morristown Medical and delivered blankets to those patients. The patient artists walked all of us through their projects and what they were feeling at the time when they made them. It was very special to be part of the art show.


Subaru and NWF Loves the Earth  –  Julia O

Our garden got off to a late start but it is flourishing! The school courtyard lacked the biodiversity necessary for a healthy habitat but with help of Ramsey Subaru and NWF we were able to plant native species that would draw pollinators. With pollinators on the way we also planted vegetables so that our special summer pre-school program could take advantage of those pollinators to grow healthful foods for themselves. We can't wait to get back in the fall to see how our garden grew! Thank you Ramsey Subaru and NWF.


LLS & Ramsey Subaru  –  Michelle E

Ramsey Subaru teamed up with LLS to deliver blankets, care cards and craft kids to patients at the Carol G. Simon Cancer Center at Morristown Medical Center on June 12th.The delivery was during a patient Art Show, facilitated by the Art Therapy program, where patients who created art work during therapy groups showcased their works to other patients.During this event, Joe from Ramsey Subaru, as well as LLS staff, handed out blankets and care cards to patients whose art was showcased as well as patients in the infusion waiting area.Craft kits were given to the Art Therapist who commented on how this donation would give her the chance to give art supplies out to her patients during group sessions and so they could continue to their art therapy at home.All patients were grateful for the blankets and care cards and several mentioned how much the inspirational messages on the care cards help keep them going.One patient said she would keep the care card in her car to look at as a reminder each day.One particular patient named Liz, who was diagnosed with AML in 2015 and attended the art show with her 5 yr old daughter Emma, has just reached one year in remission.She talked to the hospital reporter about how her entire focus has changed since her diagnosis.She used to think “I ‘have to’ do this or that” but now she thinks “I ‘get to’ do this or that.Liz gave Joe from Ramsey Subaru a very appreciative hug upon receiving her blanket and is grateful for supportive programs like this.
