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. 


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.


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 we supported teachers and students with donations of S400,000 in gift cards and school supplies. 


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. 


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. 

How is Subaru Antelope Valley dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits. 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 Subaru Antelope Valley

Subaru and Subaru Antelope Valley believe in making a positive impact on the communities in which we live and work. We uphold that belief through our Love Promise Community Commitment. Every month, we select inspiring stories from customers and partners from around our area who strive to support our collective commitment and feature them here

Tugging On Heart Strings  –  Los Angeles County A

All dogs and cats want is a loving, caring home, and nothing tugs at humans' heartstrings more than when they see an animal abused or without a home. At their best, these animal adoptions restore your faith in humanity, fully exhibit the trans formative power of love, and serve as a reminder that we don't choose our pets so much as they choose us. At Subaru Antelope Valley we teamed up with LA County Animal Control for our annual pet adoption, and found so many great families that wanted to give these animals a home, that it was sure to make you shed a tear. New Parents were given blankets, bowls, toys, and information on training their new family member. We are so fortunate to be a apart of great events like these!

Getting A Jump On Learning  –  Janet R

At Subaru Antelope Valley we believe that the children of today will shape our world tomorrow. That's why we're excited to join Subaru of America in their efforts to make knowledge attainable and accessible for all children. With the help of our staff and our customers, we are proud to donate 125 science books to Janet Renteria's class at Linda Verde Elementary. These award-winning books have been made possible by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and are sure to help the students get a jump on learning.

Making The World a Better Place  –  City Of Hope L

One of the best things about Subaru Antelope Valley is how dedicated we are to supporting so many incredible causes in our own community. We’re excited to be teamed up with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to spread hope, love and warmth to those fighting cancer. Today, Subaru Antelope Valley donated over 60 blankets, arts and craft kits, and cards of hope to cancer patients at the City of Hope, Lancaster. Subaru Antelope Valley, the City of Hope, and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and multiple cancer survivors chatted with patients and presented gestures of hope for a speedy recovery. The patients were touched by the cards written by our Subaru customers and employees, and thanked us continually for the warm blankets and art kits. These blankets were a special reminder to them that someone is thinking about them as they undergo their treatment and work towards getting well.

Good To Be A Green Kid  –  Janet R

Recycling with kids is an incredibly important thing to do, and a good concept to promote. Through the Recycling Partnership between Subaru Antelope Valley and Linda Verde Elementary, students are taught an invaluable learning experience. Each day student’s put their snack bags and bottles into the recycle bin so that they can be turned into something new. By re-purposing items before throwing them away, kids learn that making new items from recycled ones takes less energy, and fewer resources than making products from brand new materials. These same students eventually become the stewards of our community, and our precious environment. Not only are they likely to pass on the practice of recycling to their peers and members of their household, but they will become lifelong advocates for greening our environment.

Subaru Antelope Valley Shares The Love  –  Desert H

Today, Subaru Antelope Valley presented a check to our local charity Desert Haven, for $25,725 through the "Share The Love" event. The sales team at Subaru Antelope Valley welcomed the challenge, and from the moment we met, they made a commitment to help Desert Haven. The goal was to be able to maximize the potential and independence of consumers at Desert Haven with developmental disabilities through vocational training and job placement. The consumers enjoyed a special "Love" song by Subaru personnel and were overwhelmed with the generosity of the money which they were going to put to good use and try to buy a bus for transportation. Desert Haven has been a labor of love to persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities since 1954. Established by a group of parents, who wanted their children to have every opportunity for an independent, productive, and fulfilling life…just like anyone else…Desert Haven provides vocational training, job placement, supported employment, and daily living skills and community integration skills training to some 550 adults with disabilities throughout the Antelope Valley. To that end, the agency partners with local businesses, both for-profit and non-profit, to provide these critical training opportunities, as well as job placement, for those participating in DHE’s various programs. “Unfortunately, the State of California is falling short with respect to fulfilling its due diligence to uphold the Lanterman Act, which guarantees that Californians with disabilities will be supported and afforded every opportunity to live life as any Californian would, by ensuring systems and supports, like Desert Haven, are in place and funded to assist them, “ DH executive director Jenni Moran shared during the ceremony. “As a result, programs and services like ours are literally fighting for their lives and, sadly, many throughout the state have already closed their doors. It is because of the wonderful relationships and partnerships among businesses, like Antelope Valley Subaru, and other interested individuals, who truly care and demonstrate corporate citizenship and boundless generosity, that Desert Haven has been able to survive and continue to provide these vital services. There simply are not enough words to express the depth of our gratitude for this incredible gift. Thank you, Subaru Antelope Valley for sharing the love with Desert Haven! We are humbled, honored, and blessed,” Moran said. Desert Haven will use the funds to assist in the purchase of a mid-size bus, with several wheelchair bays in order to transit persons, who must use a wheelchair for mobility, to and from their vocational training sites.

Sharing The Love  –  Desert H

At Subaru Antelope Valley we believe that work plays an integral role in the lives of human beings, and through work, people become productive and contributing members of their community. People with intellectual and other developmental disabilities are no different. They, too, desire and seek the opportunity to work and gain feelings of self-worth, self-confidence, and self-respect through work experience. The sales team at Subaru Antelope Valley took on the task to sell as many cars as they could during the Share The Love Event, in order to enhance the lives of those with developmental disabilities through our local charity Desert Haven. Our team not only was up for the challenge but felt very rewarded after meeting everyone at Desert Haven.

Making A Difference With Kids  –  Linda V

Through coordination with Linda Verde School, Subaru Antelope Valley was able to donate science books to local students, to inspire them to learn. When we heard that the students read these science books with as much interest and engagement as they would when reading a fictional storybook, we are reminded that our job of satisfying students’ hunger for science literature is very rewarding. And as we work towards this goal, the teachers at Linda Verde School are the people who truly make our goals a reality.

Best Friends  –  Marissa C

As local animal shelters were brimming with happy, healthy animals waiting for someone to take them home, Subaru Antelope Valley stepped in to make it happen with their annual Pet Adoption. There is no bond quite like the one between a human and an animal, and our staff and management witnessed this first hand. More than 22 families put their love into action by adopting a cat or dog, and our staff made a lot of new friends along the way. The community response was overwhelming with calls coming in about the animals’ weeks before. New animal parents and volunteers were treated to lunch, and introduced to their new family members. Animal parents left with Subaru dog toys, bandannas, bowls, and a new parent kit courtesy of the dealership. Subaru Antelope Valley enjoyed their day and are proud to be a part of our local animal shelter.

Subaru giving back to a true hero  –  Shaun M

It was a normal day for most in Antelope Valley on May 11th, but not for those at Highland High School. At approximately 7 am that morning, a former 15-year-old student enters Highland High School with a rifle, and shots began to ring out across the campus. Carlita Mieure was dropping her daughter off at the school when a wounded student ran up to her car bleeding heavily; he was shouting “He shot me! He shot me! I don’t know why he shot me!” Without hesitation, Carlita told the boy to get into her car, she drove him to a nearby hospital where he had suffered a gunshot wound to his shoulder. As Carlita’s 2017 Subaru Legacy was filled with blood, she contacts the Parts Manager at Subaru Antelope Valley for ways to clean it up. As management hears about the story they immediately stepped in to help, providing Carlita with new seat cushions, and interior door panels installed in her Subaru. This was a token of our appreciation from the team at Subaru Antelope Valley; we wanted Carlita to know how she made a difference in our community, and how much we were inspired by her selfless act of kindness.

Subaru Antelope Valley & LLS Deliver Some Hope  –  JJ O

Subaru Antelope Valley teamed up with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's California Southland Chapter to donate and personally deliver craft kits and blankets to City of Hope, Antelope Valley. Our mission at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society does not just find a cure but to help improve the quality of lives for our patients and we know that these gifts from Subaru Antelope Valley will provide comfort to patients on their cancer journey. This incredible act of generosity was warmly received by the staff at City of Hope, Antelope Valley, who were elated to receive so many comfort items to distribute to patients and caregivers in need. It was amazing to have the support of Subaru Antelope Valley and it truly made these patients and their families day!

Love Meets Hope  –  Melissa N

Sometimes the simplest gifts are the most meaningful, and that was the case today at the City Of Hope, Antelope Valley. Subaru Antelope Valley presented blankets to the City of Hope patients, letting them know that our staff and management are thinking about them. Realizing that cancer can put patients into an isolated and lonely place, our Subaru customers helped to write messages of encouragement to the patients, giving them a personal touch of hope. Kids received art supply kits to entertain and comfort them, as well as the children of patients who accompany their parents to treatments. We truly hope that both the art kits, blankets and messages of inspiration help provide comfort and warmth, as many patients continue their fight against cancer.

Stomp Out Hunger  –  Los Angeles Food Bank .

People struggle with hunger every day in our communities, and food donations are needed year round. The staff and management at Subaru Antelope Valley teamed up with Subaru to collect food for those in need through the Feed SoCal Food Drive. The folks in Antelope Valley were very generous in helping hungry families in southern California, and supplying them with nonperishable items to distribute to those less fortunate.

It Shouldn't Hurt To Be A Kid  –  Children's Center .

No one wants to believe that a child would be intentionally harmed, physically, sexually or emotionally, but unfortunately, it happens every day. Since the moment we met the staff at the Children's Center of Antelope Valley, we made a commitment to help raise money so that the center could provide services that are desperately needed by families in our area. Our salespeople not only enjoy helping people with their transportation but feel great that they could help families break the cycle of abuse with the money raised thru the Share The Love Program. Our team raised $26,367 to help children of the Antelope Valley and their families.

Supporting Antelope Valley's Youth  –  Boys and Girls Antelope Valley .

In our community, an increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision, as parents make their way down the freeway to provide for their families. Young people need to know that someone cares about them and that is why Subaru Antelope Valley donated $10,000 to the Boys and Girls Club of Antelope Valley. The Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow – all while having fun, it is where great futures are started each and every day. Our money will go to provide life-changing enrichment programs covering the focus areas of Healthy Lifestyles, Academic Success and Good Character & Citizenship of our local youth. We look forward to a long-lasting relationship with the youth of Antelope Valley.

Subaru Antelope Valley Loves Pets  –  Dept. of Animal Control .

Subaru Antelope Valley hosted a Pet adoption to help our local shelter find homes for many displaced animals. No matter what type of dog or cat you were looking for, Subaru Antelope Valley was here to help you get it. The turnout was amazing, and so many animals found good homes. New pets owners received gifts from Subaru Antelope Valley including a new owner’s pet kit and dog toys, a local pet store donated dog food, and a local pet obedience school was on hand to give pointers to the new owners while they enjoyed a complimentary lunch. A fun day for all!

Subaru Antelope Valley Loves Learning  –  Desert Montessori Academy .
