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 Apple 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. We believe that who we are is most evident in how we help others.

Apple Subaru Customers Help Feed York  –  Debbie K

The York County Food Bank’s mission is to end hunger in York County by working with partner agencies to increase the quantity of—and dignified access to—high quality, nutritious food for everyone who needs it. Here in York County, Apple Subaru is doing their part to eliminate hunger in our community. During their recent “Share the Love” Campaign, the local dealer collected and donated 545 pounds of food. The donated goods will be given to those in need through the York County Food Bank’s Food for Families program and sent to partner food pantries and agencies throughout York County who provide for those in their direct communities. Thanks to community-focused business and organizations like Apple Subaru, the York County Food Bank was able to distribute more than 2 million pound of food last year. Executive Director, Jennifer Brillhart states, “The problem of not having a sufficient food supply at home will not go away on its own. We feel so fortunate to that Apple Subaru realizes the importance of each and every family in our community having adequate food to meet their needs. They took action to help us assure that none of our neighbors go to bed hungry.” The York County Food Bank gives tremendous thanks to the Apple Automotive Group and all those who donated to the Share the Love Campaign. Thanks to their efforts, we are one step closer to eliminating hunger in York County.
