The 2019 Subaru Love Promise Customer and Community Commitment Award

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.

Love Promise Stories from Garcia Subaru East

Garcia Subaru East Presents check for 50k

Garcia Subaru East presented Animal Humane New Mexico today with a check for $50,000 in a celebration that included invited guests, enthusiastic staff and some photogenic dogs at the shelter’s main campus, 615 Virginia St. SE. For the third consecutive year, the local Subaru retailers designated Animal Humane as their Hometown Charity recipient. As part of Subaru of America Inc.’s national Share the Love campaign, participating Subaru retailers select a hometown charity to support through a donation of $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased.“Since we earn or raise 100 percent of our $6.5 million annual operating budget, the impact of such a sizeable gift on our ability to help thousands of homeless pets cannot be overstated,” said Donna Stumpf, Animal Humane’s executive director. “We are beyond grateful to have a community partner so devoted to supporting the work we do.”Garcia Subaru East has again designated Animal Humane as its Hometown Charity recipient for 2018-2019. The campaign runs from Nov. 15, 2018, through Jan. 2, 2019.“We are so fortunate to have the opportunity to partner with Animal Humane,” said Ryan Newhall, executive manager at Garcia Subaru East. “Every member of our team does everything they can to support homeless pets with a majority of us having adopted pets into our own family!”Subaru customers can specify whether they would like their donations to benefit the hometown charity or one of four national charities – ASPCA, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Meals on Wheels America or National Park Foundation. Garcia Subaru East and Newhall have partnered with Animal Humane for the past decade, helping to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars through Share the Love and through other donations provided by the Garcia Group. As the flagship sponsor for Animal Humane’s largest annual fundraiser, Doggie Dash & Dawdle, Garcia Subaru East also recently contributed $25,000 to support the event, set for Nov. 4 at Balloon Fiesta Park

Subaru supports local Cancer patients.

Melissa, at the age of 22, in early April, 2018 had started a family, she, David and their little girl. Life was good, Melissa and David were focused on their future and their new family. That all changed suddenly.Melissa wasn’t feeling well, and after being told by doctors “we don’t like what we see in your blood work,” and sent for more tests Melissa received a lifealtering diagnosis. Melissa was diagnosed with Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia, or APL, a unique subtype of acute myeloid leukemia. APL is classified as the M3 subtype of AML. It accounts for about 10 to 15 percent of all AML casesdiagnosed in the United States each year. Treatment for APL differs from allother AML treatments. Because of advances, thanks in part to the Leukemia &Lymphoma Society, APL has been transformed from the most fatal to the mostcurable form of acute leukemia in adults. Upon diagnosis Melissa was admittedfor an over forty day stay in the hospital to immediately start treatment. Melissa’s chemo has continued on an outpatient basis. Melissa is an incredibly strong determined woman and full of hope for her and her family’s future. On June 28th,2018 the team at Garcia Subaru East and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Societyteam personally surprised patients at Kaseman Presbyterian Hospital with a delivery of blankets and bags. It’s true, Subaru does Love to Care and this is just one example of how Subaru supports our communities. For Melissa, the blanket made her day a little brighter and she will be able to wrap herself in Love during treatments. It means so much to Cancer patients to know they arenot alone, thank you Garcia Subaru East for showing Subaru really does Love to Care.

On July 6th, Subaru East delivered blankets to blood cancer patients. Presbyterian Hospital recently opened their new location in Rio Rancho. Subaru and LLS staff presented the blankets to the medical staff at Rust Medical Center. Phyllis Henderson has been a nurse for over 25 years. She understands that when patients go through chemotherapy, not only do they need a blanket to keep them warm, they need something that they can hold that tells the patients that organizations like Subaru are in there corner. The Albuquerque community cares about our citizens and these blankets represent a small token of hope and care.

Garcia Subaru East Serves Local Cancer Patients  –  Kristja F

Garcia Subaru East Serves Local Cancer Patients

Subaru of America and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society wrapped up a special initiative this past June. Subaru Loves to Care literally brought warmth and hope to patients fighting cancer across the country. Aubry Padilla, of Garcia Subaru East and I worked together on this project. Subaru provided blankets for our patients and encouraged their customers to write notes of hope to local cancer patients. On June 5th, Aubry and I delivered 60 blankets and over 100 Care Cards to the cancer center. We asked Leslie to represent all of our local blood cancer patients. Both Leslie and her brother Keith had been dealing with a chronic cough and sought treatment for their illness. Within a few days of each other, Leslie was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma and her brother Keith was diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma. After the presentation, Aubry was eager to learn more about our efforts in the local community and agreed to join the Executive Challenge for our Light the Night walk. LTN brings the community together for a common goal with friends, families and co-workers forming fundraising walk teams. Aubry won the Executive Challenge by raising over $13,000 for the New Mexico/El Paso Chapter and will be the first person from New Mexico to be featured in Forbes Magazine with other top national fundraisers. With Aubry’s support and Subaru’s commitment to our community, Subaru helped the LLS's efforts to fund research for cures for all blood cancers.

Local Dealer Raises $25,000 for Homeless Pets  –  Ryan N

Local Dealer Raises $25,000 for Homeless Pets

On April 16th, homeless dogs and cats at Animal Humane New Mexico received $25,000 in a generous contribution from longstanding supporter Garcia Subaru. This amount is the highest received by Animal Humane in its 3 years as a beneficiary of the Subaru "Share the Love" program and will make a significant impact for homeless pets in our care. "Thousands of dogs and cats enter our shelter each year," said Peggy Weigle, Executive Director. "Our partnership with Garcia Subaru began in 2008 with support for building the Robbie Jones Memorial Cat House. Their dedication to our mission continues and these funds will help us provide vital medical and behavioral services to pets in need and help us find even more pets loving homes." Two puppies, Nerf and Schools, looked on at the check presentation in Harbor Lights Park at Animal Humane's 615 Virginia St. SE campus. Because Animal Humane receives no federal, state or city funding, contributions like Garcia Subaru's are vital to supporting pets like Nerf and Schools. Both puppies arrived in our care from the Gallup-McKinley shelter through our Project Fetch program, and both received treatment for medical conditions to help them become healthy and ready for adoption. The $25,000 received today from Garcia Subaru can help many homeless pets like these on their way to loving new homes. Garcia Subaru is a longstanding supporter of Animal Humane New Mexico, contributing a wide range of support each year.
