The 2020 Subaru Love Promise Customer and Community Commitment Award

What is the Subaru Love Promise?

The Subaru Love Promise is just that. A promise. It is a promise to do right by our community by partnering with nonprofit education, health, community, environment, and animal organizations - to set Subaru apart through our deeds and the deeds of our partners. To be unlike any other car company by doing what is right and good, just for the sake of doing it.

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 Daytona 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.

The Dream Truck  –  Christian Z

In May I had found my dream truck. Unfortunately, it came with some issues that I do not have the time (nor paycheck) to handle. I came into Subaru Daytona and was greeted before I hit the door. They helped me out and got me in the car I wanted with the right numbers for trade-in! The whole experience was how I imagined car buying should be!

Subaru Daytona Supports HHS from Share the Love  –  Barry K

A huge thank you to Subaru of Daytona for becoming an Annual Sponsor and the Presenting Sponsor for our Mutt Strutt 5K Walk/Run (shown below) on the World’s Most Famous Beach event. The funds raised from Mutt Strutt help provide food, medical, and shelter for our community’s animals. Animals like Ferngully (pictured below) who was severely burned when dragged by a car, receive more medical care at Halifax Humane Society thanks to our increased fundraising efforts and support of our sponsors. Thanks to the support of Subaru of Daytona our fundraising goal of $50,000 is more attainable than ever before. Thank you Subaru Daytona!

David Wiggins, executive director of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, North & Central Florida Chapter, Ann Pintiliano of Subaru of Daytona and Halifax Health Oncology Team Member Jessica Scheer expresses the importance of today's donation of blankets and notes of inspiration for our patients receiving treatment in the Center for Oncology. The Cards and notes were all created by customers and staff of Subaru of Daytona with pictures, drawings and well wishes for each blanket. It is so nice to bring just a little joy and smiles to those going through so much


2018 Mutt Strutt  –  Pam C

Every year we partner with the Halifax Humane Society to sponsor the Mutt Strutt. This event allows dogs to go on the beach, so we do a fun 5K run, walk, or Strutt. In attendance is over 1,000 people with over 500 dogs. We have vendors and local radio Dj's, but the stars are all to dogs. This is one of their biggest fundraisers.


LLS & Subaru of Daytona Blanket Delivery  –  David W

Ann met us at Halifax Health in Daytona for the delivery. We were greeted with smiles from the staff at Halifax. The patients were so excited to receive their blanket and notes of inspiration. Ann, LLS and the Halifax staff were humbled by the experience.


After the Storm, the Butterflies emerge!  –  Mary S

Sugar Mill Elementary School planted their butterfly garden. The big mixup last year in the gift to them from Subaru of Daytona to build their butterfly garden, the school was over so they decided to start again in the fall. Well, Hurricane Matthew hit and caused damage and a mess that had to be cleaned up. So early spring they tried again, with much success they had beautiful plants, and best of all beautiful Butterflies! The students all learned how and why to plant a flower garden and how it helps other creatures to flourish. Thank you, Mary Speidel principal, teachers and your students. Your pride in your school is outstanding! POP (Port Orange Pride)


THANK YOU!  –  Maria M

Subaru of Daytona recently did a food drive at their location. The food they collected was donated to our organization, we are so excited to be able to provide a few families in need with the food, so their food budgets are not strained as kids are home for the summer. We are locals helping locals and we couldn't do it without wonderful companies that strive to help their community like Subaru! Thank you! We look forward to more join ventures in the future!


Cleaning up Volusia County.  –  Ann P

"Subaru Loves The Earth" event ran for the month of April. Ann Pintiliano, our coordinator of community service here at Subaru of Daytona, was instrumental in making our local campaign a big success. At first, the campaign seemed like a good excuse just to clean out old computer stuff in our storage shed. But then Ann challenged her Chamber of Commerce "Leads" group associates to discard their old tech items with us. She gave it added exposure on her Facebook page, then she created a flyer for our customers who brought in their vehicles for service. Each customer received a specially designed flier that asked, "Have You Earned Your Love The Earth Badge?" One by one our customers and business associates came in with old printers, routers, wires, cords, and even a huge television. One lady brought in 30 monitors! We collected over 2500 lbs to be recycled. We hope Subaru of Daytona has helped keep at least a small part of this refuse out of our landfills. Ann even discovered a couple of local businesses here in Daytona Beach that do this type of recycling all the time. The awareness is awesome. Hopefully, the campaign will have a lasting effect. So, we ask you, "Have You Earned Your Love The Earth Badge?"


April 1-30, 2015 E-Waste Recycling Event  –  Molly M

Subaru of Daytona Employee Participates in Council on Aging's "Celebrity Waiter Event"  –  Priscilla C

Ann, public relations manager at Subaru of Daytona, was asked to participate in a "Celebrity Waiter Event". This event was put on by the "Council on Aging" to help raise money for the Meals on Wheel's program. This program delivers meals to the home bound elderly who are able to cook for themselves. It was the first time Celebrity Waiter event. The job of the waiters was to find 10 people for their table, dress up, and get tips for doing different things. Which this ranged from getting the guests utensils, dressing for the salad, water, also singing, dancing, or anything else the table could come up with. Ann dressed as a fortune teller with her little furry friend Subie her Subaru friend who would tell your fortune. The night went off with lots of fun by everyone. Ann was asked to sing I'm a little teapot and then Respect with two other waiters, asked to be in a hoola hoop contest of which Ann got very imaginative with it. Holding it while swing it around her waist, and stepping through it like a jump rope, then she had to skip around the room but was smart enough the get tips as she went around the room she also help others with dancing, the most fun was heading a Conga Line getting most of the people up and joining in. Ann placed 6th overall and raising for her Subaru $617, all the waiters in total raised $6,333. Great night for a first time event!


Mutt Strutt With Halifax Humane Society  –  Tyler S

This year's Mutt Strutt sponsored by Subaru of Daytona was held on March 29, and at least 1,000 dogs and their owners enjoyed walking, running, playing and mingling on a beautiful sunny spring morning. You could say it was controlled canine chaos on the beach! We take over the beach and set up three large surfboards so owners and their pooches could pose for a photo op picture and take home a keepsake from the event. This year we had several of our employees with their dogs that they rescued there at the event helping to give back. It was fun to see all the dog interaction, and the dogs jumping in the kiddie pool of water that they had after the walk instead of drinking it. During the Mutt Strutt, Ted Serbousek, of Subaru of Daytona, was proud to present the Halifax Humane Society with a check for $26,500. We, at Subaru of Daytona, are proud to support this very worthwhile organization and are proud to make a positive impact in our community.


Share The Love With Halifax Humane Society  –  Tyler S

Last fall during Subaru of America's "Share The Love" event, Subaru of Daytona supported our local charity, the Halifax Humane Society. Almost all of our new-car buyers selected the Halifax Humane Society as their charity of choice. For every $250 donation from Subaru of America, Subaru of Daytona donated a matching $250, for a total of $500 for each car sold. The Halifax Humane Society receives no government funding so this agency keeps all the strays cats, dogs and other critters at bay. This helps Volusia County that they don't have to provide that service for this area. To help generate awareness and enthusiasm, the Humane Society brought us a six-foot-tall poster that we displayed prominently in our showroom. Our connection with them has continued into 2014, as we are a major sponsor of the organization's big fundraiser: the Mutt Strutt 5K On The Beach. Subaru of Daytona and Subaru of America raised $26,500 during the campaign.
