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.

Hospital  –  Seth T

We at Bennington Subaru reached out to our local hospital to see what we could do for them. Southwest Vermont Medical Center wanted us to come to their annual fundraiser which we were glad to do. We donated $5000 to help their efforts to raise money.

Subaru and LLS Love Promise Story  –  Christine K

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society was honored to join Bennington Subaru for the delivery of 80 beautiful blankets and 12 craft kits for kids. The delivery took place right outside of the Southern Vermont Regional Cancer Center on Thursday, July 13th. The Subaru was packed to the brim to provide patients comfort and warmth. They also delivered care cards with messages of hope! Thank you Bennington Subaru for all you do.

Local Athletes & Coaches Awarded  –  Jay M

Local Athletes & Coaches Awarded at the first annual Regional All Star Gala held at Bennington College. The 2017 male athlete of the year, Jay McCoy, stands with Gabby Douglas after receiving his award on Tuesday night at the Regional All-Stars Gala sponsored by Bennington Subaru. To start the program, Warren Dews, New England Newspapers' Vice President of Audience Development welcomed everyone to the event, which happened to be a packed house at Bennington College's Greenwell Auditorium. He had all the local gymnasts come up to the stage as he introduced Douglas, who came out to a standing ovation. Afterward, Douglas was gracious enough to sign autographs and take pictures with fans. BENNINGTON — The drama at the end of the night was palpable. Who would be the Athletes of the Year at the first-ever Regional All-Stars Gala? When all was revealed, a pair of three-sport athletes brought home the hardware. Mount Anthony senior Emily Altland was honored as the Regional All-Stars female athlete of the year, taking the title after all-star efforts this season in soccer, Nordic skiing and lacrosse. When New England Newspapers publisher Alan English announced her name, the crowd stood up and cheered as Altland made her way to the stage with some of her teammates cheering as she accepted top honor from this year's guest of honor, three-time gold medal-winning gymnast, Gabby Douglas.

An Edible School Garden in Rockland County, NY  –  Ronald and Ellen S

We began a school garden at Grandview Elementary School (1,2,3 grades) where 98% of the student's are eligible for free or reduced school breakfast and/or lunch. The needs at this school are great and the teachers and principal are the most dedicated and inclusive educators we have ever met. A team of seven volunteer gardeners trained by Cornell Cooperation Extension of Rockland, Master Gardeners and RISE Gardeners, came together to resurect the school's atrium garden. Our goal was to engage all interested students in the work of gardening and the science and joy of growing food and flowers. Our first year we invited interested students to give up a recess period to garden with us. After the first growing season we realized we could also teach about nature, ecology and stewardship of the Earth. Our Garden Club now meets twice weekly involving all students. Our garden has evolved into a true outdoor classroom now including benificial insects, a pollinator garden, native plants, water conservation, organic practices, weather recording, bird feeding, recycling and composting. Tthis summer we will be growing produce for summer harvest so our students can have fresh and healthful food that they have grown themselves. We have learned that young children love to water, weed, watch worms, taste the foods they grow, and bring fresh food home to share with their families. This garden has brought joy, learning and health to our school community and our Subarus get us there!
