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 over $28 million to the ASPCA and through Subaru Loves Pets has helped support the rescue, transport, adoption and well-being of over 230,000 animals across the country. 

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.

Education

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.

Subaru of Kings Automall Loves to CARE!  –  Christina B

The Tri-State Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is proud of its Loves to Care partnership with Subaru of Kings Automall.

Subaru Love Story - Most Valuable Kids  –  Sherri F

Thank you Kings Subaru for your continued support of Most Valuable Kids (MVK) during the Share the Love Event. Because of your generous support, MVK has been able to expand our services to meet the growing needs in our community associated with childhood poverty. This includes the creation of extra-curricular experiences that, for the majority of kid-focused, non-profit agencies in our community, saves them critical dollars to focus on other areas of need (70 % state MVK saves them money/impacts their bottom line) In 2018, your donation provided 22,747 at-risk kids in our community with the opportunity to enjoy an experience they would otherwise be unable to afford. These experiences reward hard work, strengthen relationships, enhance self-esteem and encourage kids to dream big! From the magic of a live performance at a theater to great seats at a sports event, MVK and Subaru understand the importance of creating childhood memories. Additionally, MVK creates programs that introduce kids to jobs, healthy eating, exercise, race/police relations and female empowerment with our very own Girls with Pearl's program at eight schools. Our impact is best said in the words of a teenage recipient, "Thank for making my birthday the most valuable memory that I will ever have. Words cannot express how much it meant to me. I will cherish that moment for the rest of my life. By receiving tickets to the theater, I saw kindness that sticks with people forever. I also grew closer to my aunt and developed a deeper love for the arts. I have never felt more appreciated in my life.” Thank you Kings Subaru, we couldn’t do what we do without you!


Subaru Love SPCA  –  Courtney B

In the spirit of the Subaru Loves Pets initiative, Kings Subaru organized an on-site adoption festival with the SPCA of Sharonville. On August 18th, 2018 representatives from Kings Subaru and the shelter gathered on the grounds in an effort to bring awareness to the increasing number of animals that spend weeks, if not months at a time, in shelters throughout the country. This event included music, food, custom tag engravings, and resulted in the adoption of 12 dogs and 6 cats. The event was in full swing with members of the community congregating with the intention of helping the shelter animals find their forever homes. Kings Subaru took additional measures to secure funding, with the assistance of SAF, to sponsor the SPCA foster program for a one-year time span. This special sponsorship of $5,867.77 will allow the SPCA to provide food, toys, and medical care to many of the animals from the shelter that are placed in the care of foster parents. The staff of Kings Subaru was grateful for the opportunity to meet the hard-working members of the Sharonville SPCA and to learn of their mission to place each animal in a loving home where they will receive all the love and care needed to prosper.

MVK "Share the Love" Program for At-Risk Kids  –  Sherri F

Subaru of Kings Automall is an important partner of Most Valuable Kids of Greater Cincinnati (MVK).

MVK collaborates with more than 90 non-profit agencies, providing them with once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

In addition to the tickets, MVK kids are seated in a special section, receive t-shirts and hats and are featured on the Jumbotron! To make this experience even more impactful, MVK created an incentive program that encourages the kids to "Share the Love" in their community in order to be rewarded with the tickets. Thanks to Subaru of Kings Automall, in addition to these experiences, MVK received a generous donation to assist in our continued efforts to provide for agencies that serve kids in foster care, living in homeless shelters, teens living in rehabilitation facilities, mentoring programs and schools who serve kids living below the poverty level.
