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.

Grand Opening  –  Tamara V

The Presidents day weekend Grand Opening Event at McKenna Subaru was an amazing three days. There was food, prizes, birds of prey and a Rock Climbing wall. Everyone should stop over at McKenna Subaru in Huntington Beach to see the amazing building and speak to their experienced staff. We had a wonderful day!


Blanket Delivery!  –  Samantha V

On Wednesday June 12th The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Orange County Inland Empire Chapter and McKenna Subaru had the pleasure of delivering 80 blankets to the Hematology/Oncology Department at a local hospital as part of the Subaru Loves To Care program. This incredible act of generosity was warmly received by thelocal hospital staff who were excited to receive these blankets again this year to distribute these comforting gifts to their patients. They expressed how blankets are the best gift to give to the patients to keep warm during their treatment visits. Many thanks to everyone at McKenna Subaru and the local hospital for supporting LLS’s mission to cure blood cancers and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.


McKenna Subaru Supports HB & Fountain Valley Youth  –  Laura P

Thank you to McKenna Subaru for supporting Boys & Girls Clubs of Huntington Valley for the second time during the 2019 Subaru Share the Love Event. Boys & Girls Clubs of Huntington Valley received a $26,600 donation which will help us keep our Haynes Family Huntington Beach Branch in top condition and continue to make our award-winning programs accessible to families who need them most through low-cost programs, scholarships, and free programs for low-income families. Because of Subaru’s generous contribution, children can pursue their interests through programs focused on STEM, reading, arts, sports, leadership, character development, health, and life skills. Subaru’s kindness and generosity is helping make great futures that children dream of into reality. Thank you, Subaru!


Loves To Care Blanket Delivery  –  Samantha V

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Orange County Inland Empire Chapter partnered up with McKenna Subaru in Huntington Beach to deliver 80 blankets and 25 craft kits to cancer patients at a local hospital on Friday, June 22nd. Staff members Victoria and Marco from McKenna Subaru and LLS staff member Samantha along with volunteer Geno, came together to deliver the blankets and craft kits. The items were delivered to the hospital staff who were going to distribute the blankets to patients to stay warm during their hospital visits. The craft kits were going to be given to children to keep busy while they waited patiently for their parent to finish with their treatment. Hospital staff mentioned that they had been looking forward to our delivery as they enjoy seeing the smiles from patients when handing out the blankets. Patients who received blankets from us last year loved them and were very thankful for the generous gesture. It is great to know that through the Loves to Care partnership we are able to spread love, hope, and warmth.


Partnership with Leukemia & Lymphoma Society  –  Yvette S

McKenna Subaru in Huntington Beach, California partnered with the local Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Chapter in Orange County Inland Empire to deliver blankets to cancer patients at a local hospital on July 6. McKenna Subaru staff met with the hospital’s cancer center patient navigator to learn about how patients are provided with care, linkages to services and referrals. Subaru and LLS staff delivered blankets, craft kits and other items to hospital staff for distribution to cancer patients visiting the facility. As a result of the blanket delivery, Subaru staff learned about the patient services provided to the local community through LLS and the hospital and are currently discussing hands-on volunteer opportunities for staff at the Subaru dealership!

The charity representatives were very surprised and truly appreciative by the amount of the donation. All 4 charities will use this donation to fund various activities during 2017. Stories about how the donations will be used by each charity are following.


McKenna Subaru Loves the Earth  –  Anja G

At McKenna Subaru, we were startled to learn of the sharp decline of the wildlife in the United States. With wildlife declining by over 58% percent due to habitat loss, Subaru and the National Wildlife Federation are raising awareness of this important issue by creating over 400 new Certified Wildlife Habitats at local schools. Thus, for our April Subaru Loves the Earth initiative, we were partnering with Hawthorne Academy of Math and Science and providing items needed to create a certified wildlife habitat in their schoolyard. We had a great experience with all students and we’re glad to make a little positive impact in this world.
