Subaru Loves to Help

At Subaru, we are dedicated to supporting organizations providing aid to communities in need. From working to end hunger to providing donations to first responders, we believe in a world where hope is commonplace, and love transcends our neighborhoods.
Aligns with:
Zero hunger

Blanket and Sock Donation

Imagine worrying about staying warm as the nights grow colder. For more than 500,000 Americans experiencing homelessness, this is the reality they face every night. Through our Love Promise commitment to supporting our communities, Subaru of America, Inc. (Subaru) and our retailers took action by partnering with local homeless shelters to personally deliver water-resistant blankets and warm socks to help those in need. From 2020 through 2021, Subaru and our retailers provided 100,000 warm blankets to shelters across the country, as well as 50,000 pairs of socks. Showing warmth and compassion for those who find themselves without a roof over their heads is just one of the ways we are doing even more to make a difference.

Feeding America

We doubled our efforts in 2021, donating a total of 150 million meals across 199 food banks nationwide as part of a landmark donation to Feeding America. These meals helped communities in areas with the highest rates of food insecurity and were even more impactful because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our partnership with Feeding America has allowed us to make a significant contribution in the following areas:

  • Rescued 4.7 billion pounds of groceries from going to waste.
  • Reached 21 statewide food bank associations and 60,000+ partner agencies, food partners, and meal programs.
  • Helped increase distribution of produce, protein, and dairy by more than 20%.

7,600 pounds of produce donated

Subaru Share the Love Garden provided food to local nonprofit Center for Environmental Transformation
Subaru Share the Love® Garden

Now in its 14th year, the Subaru Share the Love® Garden is located on the grounds of our corporate headquarters in Camden, New Jersey. We work with the local nonprofit Center for Environmental Transformation to select and acquire plants, while a group of Subaru colleagues maintain the garden. It yields an average of 600 pounds of produce every year, and the produce is donated to our neighbors in need at the Cathedral Kitchen soup kitchen. Over the garden’s 14-year lifespan, we have donated about 7,600 pounds of produce.

Fire Department Vehicle Donations

We are extremely grateful to all those who serve in protecting the safety of others. In 2021, we launched a partnership with local first responders, donating 20 vehicles to fire departments to help provide training for firefighters as they prepare to respond to emergencies in their communities.

The opportunity to use new vehicles with such strong construction and materials is unique and allows us more realistic training that builds our skills to the level our community expects from its fire department. The fact that these were new Subarus challenged us with high strength materials and construction as we trained our response teams on rapidly accessing patients in these vehicles to save lives.”

– Chief, Torrance Fire Department (California)

“The vehicles that Subaru was able to provide us allowed us to provide hours of training not only to our newest members, but to our experienced personnel. The hybrid vehicles were of high value because they allowed us to refine our extrication tactics when dealing with hybrid vehicles.”

– Chief, Pennsauken Fire Department (New Jersey)

Furniture Donations in Colorado

When moving facilities this year, Subaru looked for ways to minimize our impact and maximize our benefit to the community. Subaru donated more than 100 pieces of office furniture to Thimmig Elementary in Henderson, Colorado. Teachers and staff received comfortable leather chairs, whiteboards, bookshelves, cabinets, and extra desks delivered to the school by Subaru colleagues.
