The 2019 Subaru Love Promise Customer 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.

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.

Love Promise Stories from Michael's Subaru of Bellevue

Subaru and Michael's Subaru of Bellevue 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

Michael's Subaru of Bellevue Brings Comfort  –  Katie J

On July 18, 2019 Swedish Cancer Institute in Issaquah received their favorite delivery of the year, the Subaru gifts for their patients. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) exists to find cures for blood cancers and improve the quality of life for patients and their families and we partner with Subaru across the country to bring these gifts to local cancer centers and hospitals. Mark and Lisa from Michael’s Subaru of Bellevue arrived with the many boxes of arts and crafts kits, warm blankets and messages of hope from their customers during the month of June. The messages of hope were so inspirational and many of them were written by children and tugged at all of our heart strings. We were pleased to be joined by Swedish Cancer Institute leadership including their COO, Christopher Beaudoin, MD for this special presentation. The staff at Swedish Cancer Institute and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society personally thank Michael’s Subaru of Bellevue for caring for their patients personally affected by cancer and for helping LLS fund blood cancer research to find more cures.


Youth Eastside Services  –  Madelaine T

Thank you to Michael’s Subaru of Bellevue for selecting Youth Eastside Services (YES) for the second time during the 2018 Subaru Share the Love Event. YES received a $12,811 donation which enables us to provide intensive mental health counseling, substance use and co-occurring disorder treatment, and psychiatric services to thousands of children, youth and family members, regardless of their ability to pay. Youth like Caleb, age 17, who has suffered from depression from a young age. At YES, Caleb gained life-changing skills to manage emotional, behavioral and interpersonal challenges through mental health counseling, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and YES’ free drop-in BGLAD group for youth who identify as LGBTQ+. It is through the generous support of local businesses like Michael’s Subaru of Bellevue that youth like Caleb receive the services they need to recover and lead healthy lives. And for that, we offer our deepest, heartfelt thanks.


Sharing a smile goes a long way!  –  Mark

Michael's Bellevue Subaru has been planning a pet adoption day for the local animal shelter, Seattle Humane. To help spread the word, service greeter Daniel offered to hand out fliers and share information with customers to encourage involvement within the community. Daniel went all out! He filled a table with handouts and greeted every customer with a smile and invited customers and employees alike to participate and/or donate. A couple of days before the event, I found out Daniel was not available to attend, but he wanted to make sure he did everything he could for the animals while he was here! Way to go above and beyond to share the love promise! Since Daniel loves dogs so much, I brought my pup in a few days early to hang out and greet with him for a bit. His smile made my day!


Caring For Patients at Swedish Cancer Institute  –  Katie J

On July 20th, Michael’s Subaru of Bellevue partnered with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for the second consecutive year. They delivered blankets and arts and crafts kits to the patients and kids experiencing cancer at Swedish Cancer Institute in Issaquah. Patients will each receive a beautiful blanket and hand-written message of hope from customers at Michael’s Subaru of Bellevue as well as arts and crafts kits for kids. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society exists to find cures for cancer and improve the quality of life of cancer patients and their families in Washington; and Subaru helps LLS by donating critical research dollars. Thank you again for your care and compassion for the patients at Swedish Cancer Institute; and for helping the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society fund local life-saving research to beat cancer and provide programs and services for patients in Issaquah and beyond.


Michael's Subaru Delivers Care to Local Patients  –  Anne G

Michael's Subaru is a new partner to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Swedish Hospital - Issaquah, and on Thursday, July 13th, Sheree LaRue from the dealership group brought a carload of warm, high-quality blankets to the hospital where they were received enthusiastically, with open arms by Tricia Matteson, MSW, LICSW, and Amy Christian, MSN, RN, OCN who serve oncology patients including those with blood cancers like leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.

Subaru and NWF Loves the Earth  –  Melinda W

At Cedar River Montessori, we go outside into our 12 acre classroom every day - rain or shine! This year, our environmental educator has been focusing on pollinator education with our students (ages 3 - grade 8). Students observed and studied our native bees, built orchard mason bee houses, and added extra flowers with different shapes to our vegetable garden to attract more of our native bees and other pollinators. Thank you to the National Wildlife Federation and Chaplin's Bellevue Subaru for helping us support our pollinators!
