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.

Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.

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.

Recycled Art Show  –  jane L

Recycled Art Show

For the second consecutive year, John Hine Temecula Subaru was the "Presenting Sponsor" for the 4th Annual "Recycled Art Show" on April 18, 2015. The event was inspired by International Earth Day and brings together established, professional artists and talented middle school through college-level art students creating a rich range of designers, collaborators and mentors. Art students present with and learn from regional designers and artists in a professional, competitive venue. At the event a panel of five outside judges select winners and present awards. Fashion designs are selected based on innovative use of recycled material, expression of humanitarian and ecological statements, craftsmanship, transformation of the model and original design. Designers created dresses with 'recycled Subaru parts & materials' that we donated as well in order to fashion some very creative clothing. In conjunction with Earth Day and the Subaru "Loves the Earth" campaign, John Hine Temecula Subaru Cross promoted the event on social media, Radio & TV spots and that promoted the "Electronic Waste Collection Event" for the month of April. The promotion was a great success and exemplified The Subaru Love Promise in our local region. We look forward to taking part again in 2016.
