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.

Love Promise Stories from Kirby Subaru of Ventura

We Have Your Back  –  Ashley B

We Have Your Back

Americans are still very aware of the Police shootings in Texas last year. Five officers were gunned down in an ambush style attack. Bullet proof vests are no longer strong enough to stop rounds from a high-powered rifle. Prevention of these murderous acts is almost impossible, however preparing our officers is not. Hence, the “WE GOT YOUR BACK” program here at the Ventura Police Department. Waiting for the budget approvals is not a timely solution. Why wait to save a life? So we went to the public sector. Armor plated vests are designed to withstand multiple hits in the same area and still not be penetrated. Heroism is not always physical strength or a brave deed, sometimes it arrives as a distinguished act of kindness and generosity, which is the example here. The President of Kirby Subaru, Jeffrey Sukay, did not hesitate to participate by providing 6 of these Military Grade Protection Vests. Kirby Subaru is very involved in our community. Jeffery, realized this was an immediate need. “Our customers live here, our employees live here, it is important to keep all of us safe, and prevent harm coming to our first res ponders”. Kirby Subaru really does have many backs with their continued involvement in our community. Subaru & the Kirby Auto Group do love to help. Seeing Kirby Subaru in the community with their “Loves to Help” banner, is a most fitting slogan to prevent families from experiencing the loss of a family member, for a lifetime.


Subaru Loves to Share Best Ideas  –  Heather S

Subaru Loves to Share Best Ideas

I am the Programming Manager at the University of California Santa Barbara arts & lectures. I am also the very happy owner of a Subaru. This makes me familiar with the “Love Promise” event that Subaru does on a national level, each year from the end of November to early January. One of the recipients of the Love Promise is the National Parks. The arts & lectures series here at U.C.S.B. for 2016 -2017 opened in September with the screening of “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea” and completed in April of 2017. Since our motto is to educate, entertain and inspire, we were able to do that with the following list of lecturers, Ken Burns, Q.T. Luong, Dayton Duncan, Douglas Brinkley, and wrapping it all up with Terry Tempest Williams. ( I so encourage each of you to Google each of these wonderful lovers of these magnificent landscapes we call our National Parks.) I am very well aware of the Kirby Subaru Dealership in Ventura. They are a tremendous partner in the community and I believed they could be a great partner bringing this series to our over 55,000 patrons. I was not disappointed! The dealership arranged for vehicles to be at the screening and the lectures when space permitted. With the participation of Kirby Subaru, U.C.S.B. arts & lecture series was able to share some wonderful history and majesty with our patrons. Thank you Kirby Subaru for bringing the National Parks to our backyard in so many unique formates.


Love Is Brewing  –  Catherine K

Love Is Brewing

I wanted to personally thank the Kirby Subaru Family for coming out in the rain for the gathering of community members that are very committed to reducing the rate of domestic violence in our region. YOU are the reason that victims are willing to say something and come forward because they have access to safe shelter and advocates on call 24 hours a day. 2-1-1 is the "command center ", call center that can help our victims to get help so they can awaken and heal from the nightmare and trauma associated with domestic violence and human trafficking.I would like to thank Kirby Subaru AGAIN!, for the van they donated to Interface over a year ago. As you can imagine, reliable transportation is essential for Interface. We just received a report from our family violence intervention team that one of the donated vans is being used and on call 24/7 to assist with transporting victims of human trafficking to emergency shelter, out of county court dates and transitional housing facilities. The "Share The Love Campaign" which was created by Subaru of America,. I think, so amplifies the true goodness of the Subaru Brand. Kirby Subaru of Ventura continues Sharing the Love with their generous participation in our community. Without sounding redundant.......Thank you to Jeff Sukay, President and Gil Alcala, Partner & Excutive Manager for Sharing your LOVE of community and giving back.!


Earth Day is Everyday  –  Mary G

Earth Day is Everyday

April 29th 2017 was Earth Day. Here at Ventura Charter School, we believe Earth Day is everyday, in so may ways. Our students continually score higher than the local school district and 99% of our students feel safe at school. Ventura Charter has a highly effective and visionary administrative staff. We are proud of our qualified teaching staff committed to a common vision, and community involvement. These are just a few of the many reasons that Kirby Subaru was the perfect choice to partner with our event. Our Earth Day event is run, organized and maintained by all volunteers from teachers to parents to students. We were so grateful to have Kirby Subaru sponsor our Earth Day event. (We know Subaru Loves the Earth). They provided wonderful education to our kids about Subaru and the "Born Green" theme that exists at the Subaru Factory. The "Spirit of Kaizen" and the continuous waste reduction efforts of Subaru made Kirby Subaru a perfect match for our Earth Day event.Thank you sooooo much to Jeff Sukay, President, Gil Alcala, and Bruce Holley, who managed the event with his wonderful cars and staff. Their assistance will help with student field trips, art supplies, music, Spanish education, teacher classroom grants, 7th-8th grade elective courses, Promotion (graduation) ceremony, and several school outdoor events. Thank you to the Subaru family for the incredible participation in our planet and our future.

Kirby Subaru Loves Carpinteria Learning

The Carpinteria Education Foundation is necessary to ensure quality educational opportunities for all Carpinteria Unified School students. We are fortunate to be part of a supportive community that fosters a strong commitment to the schools and Carpinteria children. To protect and enhance the quality of life in our community and to insure the value of our homes and property we must continue to provide supplemental support for the educational and cultural enrichment opportunities for all students of the Carpinteria Unified School District. The Board now follows the three-fold mission statement 1. To Promote Excellence in Education. 2. To Channel Private Sector Resources to the Carpinteria Unified School District. 3. To Inform and Involve the Community in the Needs of the School District. We are overjoyed that Kirby Subaru of Ventura has decided to assist CEF with our dedicated Mission Statement. Our "Triple Crown for Education", which are 5 & 10 K's, are productive races for us. Jeff Sukay, President and Bruce Holley, Event CEO, are special volunteers. Not only with donations but with time. Bruce is always on site handing out water and encouraging all the runners of all ages toward the finish line. While we will NOT see the immediate rewards from Kirby Subaru donations, we very grateful for their participation and helping our students achieve greatness, in the future. Thank you Kirby Suabru of Ventura!!


Kirby Subaru Loves The Arts & The Earth  –  Joan K

Kirby Subaru Loves The Arts & The Earth

The Ojai Valley Land Conservancy (OVLC) is a nonprofit, non-governmental, land protection organization supported by private donations. They work to protect the views, trails, water, and wildlife of the Ojai Valley for current and future generations to enjoy. The OVLC protects Ojai’s open spaces and preserves the valley’s natural beauty. As the CEO of Ojai Performing Arts Theater, (OPAT), we wanted to bring a Tony-Award winning musical to Ojai and send the net profits to the Land Conservancy. We thought GRAND HOTEL, which takes place in 1928 Berlin, Germany, would be such a musical. We were so fortunate to have it directed by a Broadway veteran William Szobody, whose extensive career in musicals includes important work on Broadway. We sold out the last 3 of the 6 performances, so William and the assembled cast really brought us a great show. Kirby Subaru was a big part of our success with their donation to help bring this wonderful musical, to Ojai, which in turn, allowed OPAT to make a generous donation to the Land Conservancy. Thank you William, thank you to all the amazing cast, and thank you Kirby Subaru and Jeff Sukay, President, for your participation. With your fondness for the Arts, we helped our Earth. Everyone knows Subaru Loves the Earth.


Making A Difference  –  Mike A

Making A Difference

In early December, Kirby Subaru participated in in the Can-Tree Food Collection at RiverPark. Not only did they participate as a local business, they teamed up with the local non-profit, Interface Children & Family Services, as a joint-effort to help their local community. It's great to see local organizations supporting the community and each other. Especially during the holidays!


Sharing the Love Has Many Heart Beats  –  Catherine K

Sharing the Love Has Many Heart Beats

Our definition of the Subaru Share The Love is Kirby Subaru of Ventura. As we begin our 3rd season with Kirby Subaru and the Share the Love Program, we wanted to announce how much more than thankful our family here, at Interface, feels, to be a recipient of Share the Love donations. Subaru of America provides a generous opportunity for thoughtful new Subaru owners to make a donation, on their behalf, toward some national charities or our local one here in Ventura County. Interface knows why so many people decide to purchase a Subaru, the reason are obvious and many. However, when the very same new owner decides to select Interface, as the charity to receive a donation made by Subaru, the reasons are not as obvious, but the benefits to our programs and families are gigantic and so appreciated. We are very excited to announce, Interface now has the facilities to assist with pets during the uncertain family transitions. Interface provides a critical safety net for children and families across many areas that include mental health services, youth services, family violence interventions, 2-1-1 information and much more. Both Interface and Kirby Subaru have the video talking about the Pet Care addition. Thank you Subaru of America, thank you Kirby Subaru and a warm blessings to all the new Subaru owners who have or will be participating in the Share the Love event for this Holiday Season.


Teacher of The Month- Ventura  –  Bruce H

Teacher of The Month- Ventura

When school gets underway here in Ventura,CA, so do the Teacher of the Month Awards for the Ventura Commerce & Education Foundation. For September 2016, the first recipient was Karen Reynosa of Ventura High School. She was 1 of 10 teachers selected out of 800 for this award!! Student comments: "She made chemistry fun and exciting. I actually understand what I'm doing now!" "Awesome teacher and person. She is very personable and her lovable attitude makes students want to learn." Every year she takes kids to the Ventura County Science Fair. Some go on to the CA State Fair! Her positive attitude is contagious. She Started & implemented the Summer Enrichment Academy. She has 3 wonderful kids who went to Ventura H.S. and have graduated or are attending Cal Pol SLO. For 18 years she has played guitar in a band called FIDO. Not in any order she finds time for tennis, hiking, books and gardening; in her spare time she is surfing and going to see various bands. Her two dogs, wonderful family and fantastic friends keep her youthful attitude. "Our time together is short. Love one another and pay it forward... we are all in the same boat," she tells us. Supporting kids and education WILL make a much better future for all. Congratulations Karen. If you think you can catch up to Karen, please say THANK YOU!! for helping to shape a bright future.


Blue Jean Ball-Subaru Loves to Help  –  Jennifer C

Blue Jean Ball-Subaru Loves to Help

As the Events Manager for FOOD Share of Ventura County, I wanted to donate a story on behalf of Kirby Subaru and their perpetual willingness to assist FOOD Share in our fight against hunger. On September 15, 2016, some very special and caring people gathered at the Walnut Grove in Moorpark for the inaugural Blue Jean Ball. The Blue Jean Ball was FOOD Share’s first ever signature event. It was an evening of love, fun and of course, some good ‘ol blue jeans! I am very excited to announce that the evening was a huge success in support of meeting our goal! A few quick stats on hunger and the choices families have to make each and every month just to get by. Every month, we feed over 75,000 people with the help of about 400 volunteers! However, households are stilling having to make sacrifices: 69% choose between food; utilities 66% choose between food and medical care; and 31% choose between food and education. These are people just like you and me. To use the tag line “Subaru Loves to Help” couldn’t be any more appropriate or any more of an understatement with Kirby Subaru. I would like to thank all our amazing volunteers and attendees for your participation in the fight against hunger. Thank you, Kirby Subaru, for assisting with making this event successful! Yours truly, Jennifer Caldwell, Events Manager

Subaru Loves to Restore  –  Bruce H

Subaru Loves to Restore

April of 2016 was the month Subaru selected as the month to assist the National Wildlife Federation with the Butterfly Heroes Program. As partners, we are bringing awareness of the declining Monarch Butterfly population and together we will educate, inspire, and restore. These beautiful pollinators contribute to the beauty and health of our planet. They lay their eggs on the milkweed plant, which is poison to butterfly predators but the milkweed is also being eradicated by urbanization, speeding up butterfly extinction. Perhaps the biggest losers due to a monarch extinction would be humans. We love the monarch. It's beautiful and inspiring and is the state insect for several US states. They are used to teach children about metamorphosis, migration, and more. As a Subaru Dealership, Kirby will be inspiring people to take action in their own backyards and communities. We continue to offer milkweed seed packages, until the end of May 2016. Kirby's very own Butterfly Habitat will be donated to the Museum of Ventura County, which has a permanent Monarch butterfly display. Kirby Subaru is a neighbor to Camino Real Park which is a huge Overwintering Butterfly Park.

Boy Scout Troop 503 Is Going to Camp  –  Anthony P

Boy Scout Troop 503 Is Going to Camp

I am the Scout Leader of Boy Scout Troop 503. Sunday April 3rd 2016 was the 13th Annual April Fools Car Show, which attracts classics 1980 and earlier. It took place on the grounds of the Chaparral School in Downtown Ojai. I am very, very grateful to all the participants, this event allows our Scouts to learn organization, leadership, and communication skills. The Scouts also make announcements over the PA System for the raffle prizes which takes place all day and this exercises their public speaking skills. The weather was perfect, the sunshine created an enhanced mirrored shine for all the car owners who had their love for their automobile on display. Speaking of Love, Kirby Subaru was most generous to have made a donation to cover the cost of the event space. "Subaru Loves to Help." Love, its what makes a Subaru, a Subaru. Kirby Subaru's donation will make it possible! Entire proceeds of this years event go towards our trip to summer camp. "The Boy Scouts motto is to "Be Prepared" and having them responsible for this event is preparing them for life." The fact they are so involved making their summer camp possible brings a huge degree of "emotional satisfaction", said Anthony Thank you Kirby Subaru!!


Kirby Subaru Loves Special Dogs  –  Mike G

Kirby Subaru Loves Special Dogs

Dear Kirby Subaru, Thank you for your interest and support of the Ventura County Sheriff's Search & Rescue K9 Team. As an all-volunteer team, we are repaid solely through the joy of working with our dogs and the satisfaction of serving our community. We would like to share with you a recent accomplishment by our team. K9 Roscoe was instrumental in finding a missing boy in August. Ten-year old Sammy went missing on a hot, 90+ degree day in Ojai. After several hours of searching by frantic family members, friends, and local authorities, a request was made for assistance from the K9 Search & Rescue Team. K9 handler Mike Grossman responded with his 5-year old bloodhound, Roscoe. During the search, at an intersection where the road branched off into several directions, Roscoe made a strong indication up the hill. His handler followed this lead and soon caught up with Sammy, trudging along the side of the road. Sammy was hot, tired, and a little bit frightened, but was soon reunited with his relieved family. Thank you Kirby Subaru for your continued loyal Support.


Kirby Subaru Loves Pets  –  Samantha M

Kirby Subaru Loves Pets

Every year the Avocado Festival attempts to seek financial assistance for our Doggie Day Care temporary shelter. This begin about 6 years ago as visitors were leaving their pets in their vehicles. (The Festival does not allow pets due to the sheer volume of visitors.) As we know Subaru Loves Pets and Kirby Subaru in the Ventura Auto Center was so very gracious this year and donated the monies to build our Doggie Day Care Shelter. They also permitted our small town animal related businesses to put up banners at no cost!! Staffed with volunteers from D.A.W.G. (Dog Adoption Welfare Group), a no kill shelter in Santa Barbara, our Avocado Visitors had a GREAT place to leave their pets while attending the Festival. We want to tell Ventura County, Santa Barbara County, and all our Festival visitors how grateful we are to Kirby Subaru and their generosity for the 2015 Avocado Doggie Day Care Shelter!!! Next time you are in Kirby Subaru with your 4 legged companion, check out their very own Dog Park. Be sure to check out www.sbdawg.org and the wonderful things they do. Thank you Kirby Subaru!
