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. 

How is Subaru of Gainesville 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.

Subaru of Gainesville Blanket Delivery  –  Megan R

On June 18th, 2019, the North and Central Florida Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Subaru of Gainesville had the pleasure of delivering 80 blankets and 25 arts & craft kits to University of Florida Cancer Center as part of the Subaru Loves To Care program. These comforting gifts were accompanied by personalized messages of hope written by the customers and staff of Subaru of Gainesville. This incredible act of generosity was warmly received by the University of Florida Cancer Center staff who were thrilled to distribute these comforting gifts to their patients. LLS is proud to partner with Subaru to spread hope, love and warmth to those fighting cancer, across the country and right here in the North and Central Florida community.


Subaru Supports the Alachua Audubon Society  –  Debbie S

Thank you, Subaru of Gainesville, for selecting the Alachua Audubon Society as a recipient of the 2018/2019 Share-the-Love Program. We are excited to use these funds to build some public use facilities at the new High Springs Treatment Wetlands. The town of High Springs agreed to open the new facility to the public as an environmental education and passive recreational area for bird watching, nature photography, and to learn about using treatment wetlands in the water cleansing process if Alachua Audubon could fund the public use facilities. Thanks to the generosity of Subaru, this facility will be opened to the public upon its completion, which is estimated to be in early 2020.


LLS & Subaru of Gainesville Blanket Delivery  –  David W

Jim met us at UF Cancer Center in Gainesville for the delivery. We were greeted with smiles from the staff at UFCC. The patients were so excited to receive their blanket and notes of inspiration written by the Subaru staff and customers. Jim, LLS and the UFCC staff were humbled by the experience.


Subaru and NWF Loves the Earth  –  Cheryl b

We got a lot done in 2 weeks to our garden and the students like to watch the butterflies and bees in the flowers.


Subaru Share the Love Campaign  –  Heather O

In February of this year, Subaru of Gainesville presented a donation from Subaru of America for $21,878.07 to staff members from the Howard T. Odum Florida Springs Institute. The Institute works to provide a focal point for improving the understanding of springs ecology and to foster the development of science-based education and management actions needed to restore and protect springs throughout Florida. Subaru’s Share the Love donation will allow the Institute to continue its research efforts at our springs and provide public outreach through the North Florida Springs Environmental Center, located in downtown High Springs. Thanks to Subaru of Gainesville, the Florida Springs Institute can continue its goal of educating others about the importance of our springs!


E- Waste Recycling Event  –  Jimmy V

As part of the Subaru Love Promise, Subaru of Gainesville collected unwanted electronics free of charge during our April "E-Waste Recycling Event". Throughout the month we invited customers to drop off old TVs, unwanted computers and other discarded electronics to be recycled. By responsibly recycling this E-Waste, our customers have helped us prevent 80 cubic feet of waste from entering landfills and kept the toxic compounds found in those electronics from entering our soil and waterways! Thank you to everyone who participated in the event! We greatly appreciate your support in helping to protect the environment!
