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 Kerbeck Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve it as well.

Subaru Brings Warmth and Hope to AtlantiCare  –  Stacy K

Humane Society of Ocean City NJ PaddlePAWlooza  –  Phil B

WOW.....As operations and development director for "The" Humane Society of Ocean City NJ it truly is an amazing and rewarding sight to see one of our new events not only be so well attended but so amazingly supported by some of the businesses of our local community. This was the case during our recent paddlePAWlooza hosted by our friends at Ocean City Paddle Company and Peace of Wood with treats by Nauti Donuts...….and AS ALWAYS the great folks of Kerbeck Subaru came out to support our cause 4 PAWS with the Subaru loves Pets pet tag making machine. Not only did they provide free pet tags to the many many people who attended the event with their pets but the also made a bunch more with the HSOC and our shelter phone number on it for the dogs currently housed in our shelter. Matt and his crew at Kerbeck Subaru truly believe and support the Subaru giveback business model and WE at the HSOC are lucky to have suck a great relationship with them and know they continue to help spread the word and our mission of "providing the highest level of compassion and service to our animal friends".


Offering hope and love to cancer patients  –  Marcia M

We were thrilled to have staff from Kerbeck Subaru visit the AtlantiCare Cancer Care Institute in Egg Harbor Township on June 18th to distribute blankets and art kits to patients undergoing cancer treatment. The donation was part of the Subaru Loves to Care initiative and was organized in conjunction with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We know it takes a team to fight cancer and we are blessed to have community members on our team who go above and beyond to offer hope and support to cancer patients. Thank you to Kerbeck Subaru for your friendship and community spirit.


Subaru Supports Science at GTMS  –  Paula J

Yesterday the gentleman at Subaru stopped by Galloway Township Middle School with a generous donation of over 150 texts with a science focus. With a focus on Readers Workshop and STEAM education this school year, these books will be a great support for our curriculum and provide our students with an enriched reading experience. We were also pleased to receive some school supply donations from Subaru as well. It is great to work in an area where local businesses have a passion for supporting their schools. Thank you Kerbeck Subaru! Sincerely, Paula Junker -Principal


Subaru delivers warmth to AtlantiCare Cancer Inst  –  michelle e

On July 24th, Subaru employees delivered blankets to patients at AtlantiCare Cancer Care Institute for the 3rd year in a row. These blankets represent warmth and hope to the patients and remind them that Subaru employees are keeping them in their thoughts.


Barks on the Bay-Pirate Island  –  Phil B

Our Barks on the Bay- Pirate Island FUNdraising event here on our grounds at the Humane Society of Ocean City turned into so so much more when we were contacted by members of the production crew and added to the "Bathe to Save" tour. We met the amazing Amos Family who has been traveling around the country for more than 18 months bringing awareness to shelters like ours and helping animals find forever homes. We can not thank Kerbeck Subaru in Atlantic City enough for being a part of this wonderful event. It is truly heartwarming for us to know that they support and assist with the work we do here at our shelter. Here is the amazing backstory that happened at this event. Baby's Story Baby was found in a small mining town in Virginia after she accidentally ingested rat poison in an old abandoned warehouse. The local shelter caught the wind and got Baby the medical attention she needed. She was vomiting blood and in severe discomfort and nobody thought that she would survive.....but with the help of many great and loving people she did...(miracle #1). Upon hearing about this situation, the Amos family from "BatheToSave" knew they wanted to help. After driving 20 hours to pick her up in this poor mining town they gave her love and affection hoping that along with their journey they could find a loving home for her. Baby was taken to a rescue event at the Humane Society of City with the Amos family where she was adopted into a beautiful loving household! (miracle #2) You may know their names but every rescue has an untold story. Visit your local shelter and help one of these amazing animals find their #fureverhome. Miracles DO happen but sometimes we just have to work harder and together......we thank Subaru for being part of this truly miraculous story!


Donation to AtlantiCare Cancer Care Institute  –  Michelle E

The Subaru delivery to AtlantiCare Cancer Care Institute took place on July 6th. Subaru employees were met by Jane Abbott, RN and Program Manager for Gilda’s Club South Jersey who works out of this facility. In addition, we were also met by Lori Stranges, Program Manager of Noogieland at Gilda’s Club South Jersey. Lori was extremely grateful for the craft kits as she will use them in her work with pediatric cancer patients and/or children of adult cancer patients at Gilda’s Club South Jersey. Jane was kind enough to escort myself as well as Frank and Matt from Kerbeck Subaru around to various parts of the Cancer Center to hand deliver blankets to patients. We first visited patients in the outpatient radiation waiting room before heading up to the infusion center to hand delivery to patients as they were being infused with chemotherapy. As healthcare facilities tend to be cold, many of the patients in the infusion center were happy to receive a blanket they could use to keep themselves warm during their treatment.


Subaru and NWF Loves the Earth  –  Kristen H

In the city of Pleasantville there are not many opportunities to teach our children how to garden and grow food for themselves and their families. There are not many who know how to even plant a flower garden. The purpose of our pallet garden, is to show the students how you can achieve a vegetable garden in a small space and without benefit of a plot of land. From planting the seeds, or the baby plants, the kids are getting hands on experience and pleasure of seeing their plants grow, form the small fruits or vegetables and learn how to take care of them step by step. With the knowledge that they gain from this experience, they can learn how to do it on their own, recipes for vegetables that they have never tried before, or how specific ingredients are used in recipes that they are familiar with.


LLS Donation  –  Nic S

The whole team at Kerbeck Subaru is reaching out to all their customers and patrons in asking them to take part of their LLS donation.

Subarus and Surfers for Amyloidosis  –  Lance M

Kerbeck Subaru is a proud supporter of The "Chip Miller Foundation" charity. We showed our presence and support at last years, "Chip Miller Surf Fest" held in Ocean City NJ. Kerbeck Subaru is also proud to say the Chip Miller Foundation was also one of our chosen charities for our "Share the Love" event. The Chip Miller foundations mission is, "to empower people with the knowledge and understanding of Amyloidosis for earlier detection, ensuring a better quality of life for those afflicted with the disease and to help science find the cures." Kerbeck Subaru finds great importance in supporting charities who's main goal is research and prevention towards rare health conditions and diseases.


Getting Home for the Holidays  –  Danielle T

This year, Kerbeck Subaru, chose "The Humane Society of Atlantic County" as one of our local charity option for our participation in the "Share The Love Event". The Humane Society AC is a private non-profit organization that was established in 1968. It operates an animal shelter, spay clinic, and veterinary clinic at it's Atlantic City location. To date, the busy clinic operates with three full-time doctors and two part-time doctors. The facility has digital x-ray equipment, and up-to-date blood chemistry machines to offer our clients and their pets outstanding veterinary care and service. Kerbeck Subaru's event promoted Getting Home for the Holidays. "Many pets that become lost in our community have no form of identification and sadly aren't reunited with their families" said their way back home. Every "lost pet" story should have a happy ending. Over the past six years, Subaru owners have helped to donate over twenty-five million dollars to various charities with their choice to purchase or lease a new Subaru during the "Share The Love Event".
