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.

How is Spangler Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Love Promise Stories from Spangler Subaru

Spangler Brings Hope, Warmth to Conemaugh Patients  –  Breanna S

Spangler Brings Hope, Warmth to Conemaugh Patients

For the second year in a row, Spangler Subaru teamed up with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to deliver care packages from their Subaru Loves to Care event to Conemaugh Hospital. LLS Campaign Assistant Angelina Shilcosky, a blood cancer survivor, was able to hand-deliver Spangler’s donation to her own oncologist, Dr. Ibrahim Sbeitan. Dr. Sbeitan and the other members of Conemaugh’s fantastic medical team will distribute the gifts along with messages of hope written by Spangler Subaru’s customers. These care cards are designed to show patients that, despite never having met, members of their own community wish them well and want them to win their battle against cancer. Spangler generously included 10 arts and crafts kits for children, as well as 80 blankets to make treatment more comfortable for those receiving chemotherapy at the hospital. Many thanks to everyone at Spangler Subaru and Conemaugh Hospital who made this July 6 donation possible. Thanks also to Subaru of America and Spangler Subaru for promoting LLS’s mission and programs through their Loves to Care program and social media. Their support of our goal to cure blood cancers and improve the quality of life of patients and their families is invaluabl. Pictured, from left to right, are Dr. Ibrahim Sbeitan, Garrett Spangler, Angelina Shilcosky, Ryan Spangler, Forrie Spangler, Mindi Licastro, Shanna Moore, Kathy Smay, Jen Pavelko, and Cathy Stephens.

Driving Full Circle  –  Codi F

Driving Full Circle

When LLS Executive Director Tina Thompson and Light The Night Campaign Coordinator Angelina Shilcosky were on their way to Conemaugh Cancer Center in Johnstown, PA, they had no idea their journey was about to come full circle. Angelina is not only an LLS staff member but also a BLOOD CANCER SURVIVOR! The first group of blankets from Stuckey Ford Subaru were delivered to the CEO of Conemaugh, Scott Becker. What happened next gave the entire office staff chills. While in Conemaugh, Angelina saw someone walking down the hallway just by chance. As he got closer, she realized that she knew exactly who this person was! It was her own oncologist, Dr. Sbeitan! Angelina was able to hand deliver the blankets from Spangler Subaru to her own doctor to distribute to cancer patients fighting the same battle she has thankfully overcome. Angelina was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) in December 2005 when she was 12 weeks pregnant. Today, Angelina’s CML is managed by taking a single pill every day, while her son Isaiah is a happy, healthy 10 year old. This past February, the Shilcosky family celebrated Angelina’s 9th year in remission! Talk about coming full circle.

One weekend in October, mountain bikers, trail runners, kayakers, and even flyfishermen gathered in Johnstown, PA, to engage the mountains, the water and the trails and celebrate the great outdoor adventures found here in the Alleghenies. The fall weekend concluded with none other than the 39th annual Johnstown Marathon. We were so proud to help support this great outdoor weekend. Thank you to those who came out and enjoyed themselves.
