What is the Subaru Love Promise?

The Subaru Love Promise is just that. A promise. It is a promise to do right by our community by partnering with nonprofit education, health, community, environment, and animal organizations - to set Subaru apart through our deeds and the deeds of our partners. To be unlike any other car company by doing what is right and good, just for the sake of doing it.

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 Tindol Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

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

Love Promise Stories from Tindol Subaru

Tindol Subaru Is All About Giving Back  –  Cathy B

Tindol Subaru Is All About Giving Back

For the second year in a row, Tindol Subaru spread the warmth by donating blankets, kid's craft kits and Subaru customer care cards filled with messages of love and encouragement for patients at Levine Children's Hospital (LCH) in Charlotte. The day might have been a typical hot and sticky Charlotte summer day, but we know that cancer patients receiving chemotherapy are sometimes cold during their infusion and so blankets are the perfect, practical gift. The day started off with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, NC Chapter staff and volunteers arriving at Tindol Subaru to take photos with the team, and then loading up 2 Subarus with 80 blankets, 10 kid's craft kits and customer care cards-too many to count- and caravanning over to LCH. The hospital was excited for the deliveries, and so grateful to Tindol and LLS for the thoughful gifts. We look forward to many more years of making a positive impact on the lives of local patients TOGETHER with Tindol Subaru.


Tindol Subaru Loves to Care  –  Robin A

Tindol Subaru Loves to Care

I made my own love promise the day I married Nicole and that promise happily extends to our boys, Josh and Zach. Zach was diagnosed with leukemia in 2014 and the feeling of not living up to my promise was nearly unbearable. Everything about a Subaru spoke to me, especially its safety record. If I couldn’t protect my youngest son from leukemia, I sure was going to take him to his life-saving treatments in a safe, dependable vehicle. I had my heart set on a blue Forester, standard with a sunroof and finally found it in Chicago, of all places. I was making plans to drive there to pick it up when Robin Anderson at Tindol Subaru called. She was very aware of what our family was going through and did not want me to take one moment away from my son to drive to Chicago. Fast forward to today. Zach is thankfully in remission and a very active 5 year-old with one more year of maintenance therapy. On June 26th, my family joined hands with LLS NC and Tindol Subaru to deliver blankets and messages of hope to Levine Children’s Hospital. Zach continues to receive treatment there and we all wanted to give back in some small way. Nicole might have been adamant about having a sunroof, but I know choosing Subaru was the decision that helps me every day to fulfill my love promise.

My Love Promise- LLS volunteer, Steve Yudin

I made my own love promise the day I married Nicole and that promise happily extends to our boys, Josh and Zach. Zach was diagnosed with leukemia in 2014 and the feeling of not living up to my promise was nearly unbearable. We had been driving Hondas for years and it became time to replace my Accord. Everything about a Subaru spoke to me, especially its safety record. If I couldn’t protect my youngest son from leukemia, I sure as hell was going to take him to his life-saving treatments in a safe, dependable vehicle. I had my heart set on a blue Forester, standard with a sunroof and finally found it in Chicago, of all places. I was making plans to drive there to pick it up when Robin Anderson at Tindol Subaru called. I had test driven the car there and when Robin realized I was serious about Chicago, she matched their price. She was very aware of what our family was going through and did not want me to take one moment away from my son to drive to Chicago. Fast forward to today. Zach is thankfully in remission and a very active 5 year-old with one more year of maintenance therapy. On June 26th, my family joined hands with LLS NC and Tindol Subaru to deliver blankets and messages of hope to Levine Children’s Hospital. Zach continues to receive treatment there and we all wanted to give back in some small way. Nicole might have been adamant about having a sunroof, but I know choosing Subaru was the decision that helps me every day to fulfill my love promise.


Take Them With You  –  Dottie S

Take Them With You

In 2014, Dottie Scher, the executive director of Prevent Child Abuse Gaston, bought her second Subaru in 14 years, a 2015 Subaru Outback. She chose this one because it was an Outback and it is Prevent Child Abuse blue!Part of their program focuses on teaching parents and caretakers never to leave their children alone in a hot car. Now they demonstrate the dangers of leaving children alone in a hot car by cooking s'more on the dashboad of a hot car. Prevent Child Abuse Gaston uses Mrs. Scher's blue Outback for that demonstration. On Thursday, June 16, 2016, Prevent Child Abuse Gaston, Safe Kids Gaston and the Gastonia Police Department demonstrated cooking s'mores in front of the Walmart on West Franklin Blvd in Gastonia, NC. Using a thermometer from the NC DMV which displays the temperature inside and outside a car. The outside temperature that day was 94 degrees F, the temperature under the tent was 104 degrees F, and the highest measured temperature inside the car was 165 degrees F. The car was parked near the front of the Walmart, in direct sunlight, for over 2 hours. It would have been an oven for anyone of any age. We hope you choose to use our story and to help Prevent Child Abuse Gaston. Dottie absolutely LOVES her Outback!
