We're honored to receive the 2020 Subaru Love Promise Customer and Community Commitment Award.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Kids had the opportunity to win a Google Chromebook and an autograph football from Jalen Richard from the Las Vegas Raiders.

We wish him the best of luck during his battle and thank him for his years of service. Scott Pastore is another police officer based in Boulder City.

Las Vegas Healing Garden Subaru Clean Up  –  Aaron L

On October 1, 2017 tragedy struck our city. During a Route 91 concert, we lost 58 lives from a mass shooting. Instead of our city falling to the ground, our community rose from the darkness and created light. In a matter of weeks, the community and volunteers came together and built the Healing Garden. Three years later the Healing Garden stands strong and reminds a place of beauty and peace. Subaru of Las Vegas volunteered to help clean the garden by helping wipe down memorials, pick up trash, clean the pathways, and plant new flowers to inspire hope. The Healing Garden has 58 trees planted to represent the 58 lives that were taken to soon. Today, Subaru of Las Vegas planted a flower by each tree in remembrance. We are so grateful to be a part of a community that has so much strength and resilience. Many lives were affected by Route 91 including many of our staff members. We hope that we are able to make a difference, and help inspire others to volunteer throughout the community. We will never forget the events that took place on October 1st, and we will always carry the 58 that are no longer with us in our hearts.

By the end of the night with the help of Subaru of Las Vegas and their $10,000 donation we were able to help grant Felicia's wish to go to Atlantis, Bahamas. Felicia is an 11 year old girl and was diagnosed with cancer in her leg. Felicia was given the choice to amputate her leg and clear cancer, or keep her leg and fight. She decided to fight, and we are so proud of her. Through chemotherapy, starting school in a wheelchair, losing her hair, and going to countless doctors appointments she always maintained a smile. We wish Felicia the best time in Atlantis, and we are so thankful we were able to help make her wish come true!

Subaru of Las Vegas has partnered with KTNV's 13 Connects Super Summer Rise program as a resource for learning, engaging and educating Las Vegas kids while school is not available to them.

Remembered as a Hero - Joseph Wilcox  –  Andy L

Joseph Wilcox was a good man in the wrong place, at the wrong time, who tried to do the right thing. Two Las Vegas police officers were shot and killed in an ambush while on their lunch break at Cicis Pizza six years ago. Joseph Wilcox also died while trying to stop the shooters in a nearby Walmart. Subaru of Las Vegas had the pleasure of meeting Joseph's mother, Debra, as part of a community outreach to help those who were negatively impacted by the affects of COVID-19. As the sixth anniversary of this shooting approached, Subaru of Las Vegas wanted to let Debra know that her son was not forgotten. Teaming up with Custom Jacks and 96.3 KKLZ, we visited Debra to present her with a beautifully hand-made work of art in honor of Joseph. Remembered and never forgotten.

Subaru Loves to Help During COVID-19  –  Logan W

Subaru of Las Vegas teamed up with 96.3 KKLZ amidst the initial onset of COVID-19 in efforts to help those in the community who were negatively impacted when Las Vegas officially turned out the lights for the safety of the city. Stay-at-home orders left many without employment, resulting in Nevada having the highest unemployment rate in the nation. Subaru of Las Vegas wanted to put a little bit of hope back into the city, so four four-weeks, we set out to deliver $250 worth of groceries per family to those impacted by business closures or layoffs. In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be universal. It all starts with acts of love for others to follow!

Red Rock Search and Rescue  –  Donald M

Red Rock Search and Rescue and the Las Vegas community have both benefited greatly from the SUBARU Share the Love donations to our Team! In 2019 to date, we have been deployed on 101 official agency search missions. 75% are with Las Vegas METRO police (METRO SAR, Missing Persons and Homicide), with the remaining missions assisting the Bureau of Land Management at Red Rock Canyon, Mt. Charleston and Lake Mead, Clark County Coroner's office, Boulder City PD, Henderson PD and North Las Vegas PD.We have also worked with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Air Force. Our entire team and management is comprised of 275 active volunteers, who each put in a minimum of 60 hours per year, in addition to their personal required SAR certifications. Our total volunteer hours to date for 2019 is 30,125! Utilizing the Share the Love donations, we are able to cover some of our basic needs such as our mandatory SAR insurance, fuel and maintenance on our SAR vehicles; without these basics we would not be able to search. In addition, we have acquired state of the art GPS tracking and communications devices that allow the Command Post staff to track the search teams in the wilderness in near real time. This allows for a much higher level of safety for the volunteers as well as provide precise locations when we locate a missing or injured person, and need to extract them via helicopter or ground medical resources. We have also expanded our medical first aid and CPR training to the public including teaching special classes for blind students, Boy Scout and Hiking group leaders and others. Our Hug A Tree children's hiking training classes have expanded into schools and community resource groups. All our public classes are free or at cost, allowing for everyone to be able to learn how to help themselves, family or friends in an emergency. On behalf of the entire RRSAR Team, I thank you for your continued support!

The collective effort raised over 6,000 books for children in need. Their efforts even extended into the financial needs of so many valley residents, offering weeks’ worth of financial education both on-air and online and offered a resource guide to help people better manage their financial health. Finally, through Subaru’s support, 13 Connects is able to award numerous individual in the community who need help during the holiday months or who deserve a reward for great efforts throughout the year.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society  –  Katie D

On July 16th, 2019, the Southern Nevada chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society along with Subaru of Las Vegas, had the pleasure of delivering blankets and craft kits to Summerlin Hospital and Medical Center as part of the Subaru Loves To Care program. Though it is quite hot outside, these blankets were a perfect fit in the cool air conditioning of the hospital. Not only did the blankets warm their outsides but the accompanying personalized messages of hope warmed the patients’ hearts.We met a variety of wonderful Southern Nevadans, both young and old, during our visit. One person in particular stood out. Esther Mason moved to Las Vegas from Huntington Beach, California 25 years ago to be closer to family. She loves spending time each day with one or more of her 13 grandchildren. In late 2017, Esther had horrible neck pain. She went to her primary care physician, a man she really was not crazy about but was on her insurance plan. He could not diagnose what was wrong. He simply referred her to specialist after specialist. The calendar year was ending and in January, she would be switching insurance plans and would have to get a new doctor because her current doctor did not accept her new insurance. Well Esther felt her prayers were answered. Her new doctor, Dr. John Hara, Esther refers to as ‘her angel.’ Esther was finally diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma on February 1st, 2018. Dr. Hara got her on the right path and under the correct treatment and if all goes well, this will be her final round of chemo. Esther truly feels her prayers were answered. LLS of Southern Nevada has proudly been distributing blankets and craft kits with Subaru of Las Vegas for three years now. We are grateful to partner with such a generous company that truly understands what community is all about. KATIE DALEY | Light The Night Campaign Manager


American Red Cross Blood Drive  –  Robert B

The American Red Cross is delighted to continue our partnership with Findlay Subaru of Las Vegas. This is the third year that we've worked together, running six blood drives and saving lives. We value this relationship highly, because it is a prime example of how businesses and non-profits can work together to help keep our community #vegasstronger. We look forward to working together for years to come!


First Responders Award  –  Robert B

Subaru of Las Vegas in partnership with iHeartMEDIA Las Vegas honors local first responders every month of the year! Each month iHeartMEDIA solicits nominations of local first responders who have made a difference in their lives and communities. They invite listeners to go online to each of their four stations websites to make the nominations. Then, from the hundreds of nominations they receive, they select an honoree each month for each station: Sunny 106.5, 95.5 The Bull, 93.1 The Mountain and REAL 103.9. Once the honorees are selected, the fun really begins! A time and date is set and the team from Subaru of Las Vegas joins the radio station on-air talent and crew as we go out to their workplace and honor them in person. We bring each honoree a Subaru “swag bag” and we get to honor them and their entire team! We are proud that we’ve been able to honor Southern Nevada first responders in law enforcement, fire & rescue, trauma and other hospital personnel and EMT’s along the way. It never gets old and we plan to continue to honor those who keep our communities safe and help us in times of dire need.


Discovery Children's Museum  –  Robert B

Where do I begin when I think of Subaru of Las Vegas and their commitment to children in our community? When we began our partnership with Subaru of Las Vegas a little over a year ago, we could not have envisioned a more perfect company to help us inspire a love of lifelong learning for children in the local community. Subaru Loves Learning really does sum it all up: It is our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible. Here at DISCOVERY Children’s Museum, we couldn’t agree more! We believe that every child, no matter their background, should have the opportunity to dream big, have access to the best learning tools and most importantly have a safe haven where they can simply engage in play and be a kid. The Subaru Car Care Center inside the Eco-City Gallery of DISCOVERY Children’s Museum opened this past summer with roaring success. This exhibit is always a favorite with the children and families who visit each day, and has been especially beloved since the Subaru brand has formally taken over the space. The exhibit includes a made to scale Subaru Ascent, a touch screen monitor which shows off the various features of the car, the latest models, updates and information about the Subaru Love Promise. This exhibit is not only vibrant and beautiful to look at, but it also offers children the opportunity to learn about jobs in the automotive industry. There are so many pieces to the success of the Subaru brand and we want them to know it takes many different types of jobs to accomplish that level of success. Children have the opportunity to change a tire, honk the horn, test the battery and even get under the hood of the car. DISCOVERY Children’s Museum is most impressed with Subaru’s commitment to the environment and the way in which their brand teaches sustainability. This is often not a major selling point with vehicles, so to have a brand represented that is eco-friendly is such an honor for the Museum! In closing, the partnership which we have undertaken with Subaru of Las Vegas is nothing short of spectacular. Their staff is one in a million and has been such a joy to welcome into our Museum. Subaru of Las Vegas’ commitment to making our community the best it can be is unmatched. Most importantly, we are so grateful for the stand Subaru has taken with their dedication to serving children through education. This is by far one of the most perfect examples of how people working together can change the world. Caitlin Shea Director of Development DISCOVERY Children’s Museum

CCSD's Title I HOPE Program  –  Andrea K

Dear Subaru of Las Vegas Employees, Title I HOPE is thrilled to be the recipient of the donations raised during the Subaru Love for Learning Event over Labor Day weekend this year. As of September 10, 2019, over 9,000 students in the Clark County School District have been identified as experiencing homelessness and in need of assistance. It is the mission of the Title I HOPE Program to remove barriers for homeless students to enroll in school and educate school personnel, parents, and unaccompanied youth of the educational options under the McKinney-Vento federal law but this program does so much more for students within the Clark County School District that find themselves in homeless situations. Through grant funding, Title I HOPE is able to assist families and students by providing school supplies, toiletries, emergency clothing and food, assistance with transportation, if and when it is appropriate, school uniforms, as well as opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities like sports and other clubs that require payment for participation. The staff at Title I HOPE ensure that students experiencing homelessness receive the same opportunities that any other student would be afforded. This includes our most vulnerable students residing in local shelters or students that find themselves unaccompanied by an adult and homeless, out on their own. As a result of the monetary donation of $6,000.00 from Subaru of Las Vegas, Title I HOPE gains the flexibility to ensure CCSD students experiencing homelessness have access to needed items such as wrestling and soccer shoes. We can also supply more high school seniors transitioning into college with necessary food and supplies such as laundry detergent, toiletries, and bedding as they begin their journey toward earning a college degree. On behalf of the Title I HOPE Staff, and CCSD students you help support, thank you for your kindness and generosity. Sincerely, Meg Pike & Kelly-Jo Shebeck, Coordinator Title I Hope

Subaru of Las Vegas with Camp Cartwheel  –  Taylor B

Each summer since 1996, critically ill children and their siblings, ages 5 to 17, look forward to Camp Cartwheel where they enjoy swimming, hiking, arts & crafts, canoeing, scuba, outdoor games, rock wall climbing and more! This year marked Subaru of Las Vegas’s 4th year volunteering, where we were able to do a little something special for the campers. We provided beach balls, bubble wands, footballs and a $500 gift card for their store to go and restock their shelves with toys for the kids to choose from to take home. Over the years Camp Cartwheel has grown immensely and now offers two camps to meet the needs of critically ill children in the Southern Nevada area. With over 100 children in each session, campers and volunteers come together to create life-long memories and friendships. Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation (NCCF) Camp Cartwheel at Torino Ranch is an outdoor three-night camp experience designed to help children with cancer or other critical illnesses as well as their siblings overcome the physical, mental and emotional obstacles posed by childhood disease. Camp Cartwheel at Torino Ranch provides a relief from the stress of hospitals and the trauma of fighting disease. For patients, it’s a time to have fun with their brothers and sisters and remember what it feels like to be a kid again. This is one of our favorite events of the year and we are counting down the days till next year’s camp. Thank you NCCF for all you do for our little heroes.


Subaru of Las Vegas Loves to Care with LLS  –  Katie D

What does Subaru of Las Vegas do to positively impact Southern Nevada? An easier question to ask the 2018 winner of the Customer & Community Commitment award would be what don’t they do? Throughout the year, Subaru of Las Vegas stays true to the Subaru Loves to Care promise and it was proven again this summer. On August 8, 2018 Taylor Borjesson of Subaru Public Relations and Subaru product specialists, Jen and Coco, joined the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) of Southern Nevada’s Light The Night staffers Katie Daley and Jill Sarcletti to share the love with pediatric patients at Sunrise Children’s Hospital. They were able to visit 20 young patients that day. This group of young warriors hailed from all walks of life and were valiantly fighting an array of battles. One young brother and sister team stood out among the patients and proved just how powerful love can be. In one young man’s room, curled up in a chair next to him, was his teen-aged sister. She was keeping him company while their mom and dad were at work. School was to start in one week and his sister had spent most of her summer break comforting and supporting him through this difficult time. Her goal? Driving him to his first day of school on August 13th. Even though the temperature outside was well over 100 degrees, it was quite chilly inside. As the young man was given a blanket by Subaru, his sister thanked everyone profusely and noted how cold the hospital was kept. She was given a blanket as well, which she initially refused saying that they should go to the other patients. But after much insistence from the folks at Subaru and LLS, she took the blanket. She again thanked everyone, climbed up into her brother’s bed and under the two blankets, they both fell asleep.Thank you, Subaru of Las Vegas, for bringing warmth and comfort to those who need it.

This is just one of the many ways Subaru of Las Vegas is able to give back to our community while maintaining our Subaru Love Promise. This was our first event for 2018 and a great way to kick-start our Share the Love year!

Subaru Loves to Care with Sunrise Hospital  –  Robert S

On July 7, 2017 it was a scorching 118 degrees in Las Vegas, yet the team from Subaru of Las Vegas braved the excessive heat warnings, delivering gifts and messages of hope to the patients and families at Sunrise Children's Hospital. Leadership representatives from Subaru of Las Vegas, including Subaru Love Promise Ambassador Taylor Borjesson, were in attendance as the Subaru of Las Vegas Love Promise vehicle arrived with over 80 high-quality blankets and over a dozen arts and crafts kits. Upon arrival, Taylor said, "We're thrilled to be here, spreading awareness about The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and dropping these little gifts off to our local patients and their families." In a sea of expressions of gratitude, there were two particularly memorable moments. After putting on her gown and mask, Taylor was able to visit and share Subaru’s well wishes, sunglasses, a craft kit, and bracelet with a pediatric patient who was on medical isolation….bringing some much-needed cheer and interaction. Then Marley, a 3-year old leukemia patient asked Taylor to assist her in making a snake from the play-doh she discovered when opening her craft kit immediately upon receipt, and as she had the entire time….Taylor went above and beyond. The entire Subaru of Las Vegas Team was remarkable, and The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Southern Nevada looks forward to additional partnership opportunities in the future that will benefit more Las Vegas patients and their families.

Recycling is the way of future  –  Sharon C

This is the 3rd year that Subaru of Las Vegas has partnered with Nevada Public Radio for the collection of recyclable materials, and we are proud to continue as the Presenting Sponsor of this semi-annual event for the benefit of the Greater Las Vegas area. On April 25th 2015, more than 520 cars braved the wind and cold to participate in the NV Recycling Day which became the weekend destination for many local Spring Cleaners. The event successfully provided a place for the LV community to safely dispose of confidential materials, clean out spaces by making use of large-volume commingled recycle bins and donate their gently used items for others to continue enjoying. As e-waste is a growing problem in this electronic generation, Subaru of LV also situated large collection boxes inside the dealership showroom to collect unwanted computers, TVs, cell phones, and more. Many of our customers and employees contributed their e-waste, and thanks to our social media campaign and word of mouth by our active and environmentally-responsible Subaru owners, the large collection boxes were quickly filled with recyclable electronics. At the end of the day, this campaign engaged many people who wanted to clean out their garages and partner in helping our planet Earth. We are honored to have partnered with our community and customers to make the recycling event a glowing success. Together, we will keep our community greener and make our homes and businesses a better place to live.
