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 Marin 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.

The Center focuses on prevention and wellness, activation of the body’s innate healing powers as well as conventional medicine during illness and recovery. MarinHealth Cancer Care is located in the Center and is where Subaru made its blanket delivery this year. From prevention to diagnosis, treatment, and recover, the Center provides the heist level of care. We had the pleasure of meeting with Alison Garrett, Manager of the Center for Integrative health and Wellness as well as Tori Murray who is director there. Doug Gold, General Manager and Alejandro Martinez, Product Specialist at Marin Subaru delivered the blankets and stayed for pictures.Upon following up with the Subaru team, Alejandro started a Light The Night team and he and Doug are encouraging other employees to join their fundraising efforts.

Thank you to Marin Subaru for honoring Whistlestop as its Hometown Charity for the third year in a row during the 2018 Share the Love Event. On July 9, the Marin Subaru Team visited Whistlestop’s Jackson Café, our on-site restaurant serving older adults healthful lunches at subsidized prices. Marin Subaru presented a check for an outstanding $14,625, which will give older adults across Marin access to home-delivered meals, healthful groceries, and affordable lunches through Whistlestop’s vital nutrition programs.

LLS & Marin Subaru Blanket Delivery  –  Megan M

On July 9th, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Greater Bay Area Chapter teamed up with Marin Subaru to deliver blankets and arts & crafts kits to Marin General.At the hospital we were greeted by Tori, who helped us to unload the blankets. After a quick photo op. she took us to a staff huddle where we were introduced to their cancer care team. The thing that struck me, was how many people they had dedicated to helping patients navigate more than just treatment. There was a clear passion for helping their patients not just survive, but thrive during and after treatment. Everyone we met was very gracious for Marin Subaru’s generous donation, and it was clear that the blankets will get put to wonderful use by their patients. Thank you to Marin Subaru for making a difference!


Subaru Love the Earth  –  Marin S

Two Subaru earth lovers went on a scavenger hunt in their neighborhood and where surprised with the quantity of treasures they found. Their neighbors where a bit surprised, but where happy to empty their garages. Our encounter with this event is proof that it only takes two people to change the world.


Marin Subaru Supports the San Rafael Pacifics  –  Jennifer C

Marin Subaru has been a supporter of local events and organizations for many years. The desire to support the community comes from the belief that it is not only important to give back to the community that supports us, but also to stay engaged with individuals within the community. Marin Subaru is proud to sponsor for the third year, the San Rafael Pacifics, a minor league baseball team. Sporting events bring together individuals from all walks of life, young and old, and for a brief period during the day, they come together as a community and a team. With the Marin Subaru logo on every baseball, we have had an ongoing tradition of letting home run and foul balls, be redeemable at the dealership for Subaru gifts. We encourage these participants to keep their baseballs as souvenirs. The San Rafael Pacifics where Champions for the year 2014.
