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 Morrie's Minnetonka Subaru

Partnering with LLS + MN Oncology for 2nd Year  –  Shannon B

Partnering with LLS + MN Oncology for 2nd Year

In June 2017, Morrie's Minnetonka Subaru and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) spread love, hope and warmth to cancer patients and their families in the local community together. Customers and employees were given the chance to write personalized messages of hope to patients, which were then handed out alongside donated blankets and craft kits to provide comfort and warmth to patients receiving care at Minnesota Oncology clinics. On July 18, 2017 the Morrie's team arrived at Minnesota Oncology with blankets and Dr. Dean Gesme, President of MN Oncology, honored us with his presence for this special occasion. Randall Henkemeyer, LLS Board of Trustees member and recently crowned LLS Man of the Year, was also present for the occasion. Randall was honored to accept the blankets on behalf of Minnesota Oncology patients and their caregivers. He knows the caregiver role all too well -- Randall lost his wife, Cindy, to leukemia seven years ago. “She was such a vibrant and healthy woman – and I witnessed first-hand how quickly a disease like blood cancer can attack and take even the strongest and most courageous people among us” Randall said. Cindy received great care during her cancer journey at Minnesota Oncology by Dr. Eric Weinshel. Randall was thrilled to be a part of Morrie's Minnetonka Subaru's special donation-- in memory of Cindy, and in honor of every blood cancer patient receiving treatment at the clinic today.

The children love to see the garden in the front of school and we can't wait to come back in the fall to see how much has bloomed! We thank you so much for this generous donation!


Above & beyond for #SubaruLovesToCare month!  –  Shannon B

Above & beyond for #SubaruLovesToCare month!

For the second year in a row, Morrie's Minnetonka Subaru, Subaru of America and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) will spread love, hope and warmth to cancer patients and their families in communities across the country. LLS and Subaru aim to reach even patients with small gestures of comfort and care in their time of need by donating blankets and care cards to blood cancer patients currently receiving treatment. But the staff at Morrie's Minnetonka Subaru wanted to do MORE than just their blanket drop. Their leadership team wanted to create a tangible give-back opportunity for their employees in June. They partnered with Memorial Blood Centers and LLS Minnesota to hold a blood drive in the dealership parking lot on June 19, and successfully signed up 22 donors, saving an estimated 58 lives in our community with their donations. Thank you, Morrie's Minnetonka Subaru, for going above and beyond the call for #SubaruLovesToCare for blood cancer patients in the Twin Cities area!


Polar Plunge 2017  –  Ryan F

Polar Plunge 2017

This year the team from Morrie's Minnetonka Subaru was able to participate in the 2017 Polar Plunge. This year's event was held at Thomas Beach at the south end of Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis. The team raised over $4,000 to benefit The Special Olympics Minnesota. Its thanks to great partners like them that provide these athletes with the necessary resources to have a great event and create a lifetime of memories.


Sandwich Project  –  Lauren K

Sandwich Project

The Minneapolis Recreation Development was started in 1967 by Allan Law, who was a teacher in the inner city public school system for 32 years. On any given night there are an estimated 7,000 homeless people in the Twin Cities, and 2,200 of them are children under 17. The goal of MRD is to feed, and provide emergency assistance to as many of them every day as possible. In January, Minnetonka Subaru held a sandwich making event to prepare 150 sandwiches that would be distributed to homeless throughout the Twin Cities. Because shelters are closed at night, Allan hands out these sandwiches between 9PM and 10AM every night, regularly making more than 50 stops. It’s thanks to businesses like Morrie’s Minnetonka Subaru that Allan is able to have enough sandwiches to hand out to those in need throughout the cities!


Stuff the Subaru  –  Amber L

Stuff the Subaru

Prism is a nonprofit dedicated to providing connections that empower people in our community to build healthy, stable lives. Our goal is to help bring basic necessities such as food, clothing and housing to low-income children, adults and seniors. Prism’s has a marketplace food shelf which is free and open to residents of Crystal, Golden Valley, New Hope, Robbinsdale, and eastern Plymouth. Throughout the month of November, Minnetonka Subaru hosted a “Stuff the Subaru” event, completely filling an Outback. They wound up collecting over 600 pounds of food! This incredible donation allows us to keep the shelves of our free marketplace food shelf full. We want to extend our greatest thanks for the kindness shown to us by the staff at Morrie’s Minnetonka Subaru!


Flood the Love  –  Lisa B

Flood the Love

We are a small foster-based animal rescue in Minnesota. When the severe flooding took place in Louisiana in August, we knew we had to help. We loaded up our very old Suburban (with almost 250K miles), borrowed a volunteer's car, and made the 2500-mile road trip to Louisiana to rescue 26 animals and bring them home to safety. That trip showed us the immense need for rescue in Louisiana. We decided to make a second trip. When Dave and Scott at Morrie's Minnetonka Subaru learned of our efforts, they gave us a free loaner car to use as a chase vehicle AND a donation to pay for our travel costs. With a trip this long, the chaser car is crucial for the safety of our team and to ensure we can rescue as many animals as possible! And as a non-profit organization, the donation check meant the world to us, covering the fuel and travel costs for the entire trip. We ended up with a Subaru Forester, and that vehicle transported TWELVE dogs from the euthanasia list to safety. Our second trip brought home 25 dogs in total, thanks to Morrie's! Pictured is Sales Manager Scott Thomas, holding Forest! Forest and his brother Morrie were transported in that Forester, and are now getting ready to start brand new lives with their new families. Thank you Morrie's Minnetonka Subaru and thank you Dave and Scott!


Morrie's Minnetonka delivers hope to MN Oncology  –  Shannon B

Morrie's Minnetonka delivers hope to MN Oncology

On July 7, 2016, LLS ambassador Ken Bailey accepted 60 blankets donated by Morrie’s Minnetonka Subaru on behalf of cancer patients currently being treated at MN Oncology. Ken knows firsthand the importance of spreading hope to patients fighting cancer. In 2005, Ken was diagnosed as having Diffuse Large B-Cell Follicular Lymphoma. After a year of various treatments that included chemotherapy, radiation and an autologous transplant, Ken’s cancer finally went into remission in September of '06. Ken shares that the first thing he did when his cancer went into remission was sign up as a volunteer with LLS. “That [being in remission] prompted me to want to help LLS and seek any opportunity I can to help others going through the same thing as me,” said Ken. “When I started my treatment, my doctor told me there was no cure for what I had,” said Ken, “now, ten years later, with the support of my family and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, we finally made it.” Ken gratefully accepted the blankets from Morrie’s Minnetonka Subaru Sales Manager, Scott Thomas, on behalf of the many patients Minnesota Oncology will see in the upcoming weeks. “We are grateful for this generous donation from Morrie’s Subaru,” said Alicia Wojchik, AOCNP, advanced practice provider at the Chaska Clinic. “These beautiful blankets will be given as gifts to patients at our clinics to keep them comfortable as they undergo chemotherapy treatments.”
