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 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. 

Environment

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.

Education

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

Community

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. 

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.

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.

Love Promise Stories from The Autobarn Subaru of Countryside

Subaru and The Autobarn Subaru of Countryside 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

Make-A-Wish Illinois  –  Michelle A

Richard and the team at Autobarn of Countryside Subaru have been beyond supportive of our local Make-A-Wish Illinois. We are truly grateful for this partnership and their willingness to make our local chapter their 5th hometown charity. Their willingness to do this allows us to grant life changing wishes for kids like Milo, in the photo attached. Wishes are more than just a nice thing. And they are far more than gifts, or singular events in time. Wishes impact everyone involved - wish kids, volunteers, donors, sponsors, medical professionals and communities. The impact varies. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments. Our corporate partners are an enormous factor in granting these wishes. Thank you, Subaru, for SHARING THE LOVE!

Autobarn of Country Side + AMITA Health Cancer Ins  –  Michelle M

On July 15, 2019, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Greater Illinois Chapter and The Autobarn Subaru of Countryside had the pleasure of delivering 80 blankets to AMITA Health Cancer Institute and Outpatient Center as part of the Subaru Loves to Care program. These comforting gifts were accompanied by personalized messages of hope written by the customers and staff of The Autobarn Subaru of Countryside. This incredible act of generosity was warmly received by AMITA Health Cancer Institute and Outpatient Center staff who were thrilled to distribute these comforting gifts to their patients. Nursing staff described their patients as “the best around” telling stories of a devoted group of people who support and care deeply for each other and the entire staff. Representatives of The Autobarn Subaru of Countryside also had the opportunity to visit with several patients to personally offer comfort, well wishes,and support. One patient noted that she had just been searching for her favorite blanket which had gone missing, so it was perfect timing to receive this cozy blanket from Subaru. LLS is proud to partner with Subaru to spread hope, love and warmth to those fighting cancer across the country and right here in the Hinsdale, Illinois community.

I know the team at the Institute is so grateful for community partners like you. It truly takes a village when going through the cancer journey, so the little things like a note or the warmth of a blanket can make someone feel the love. Please let your entire team know we appreciate their dedication to caring.


Making Wishes Come True for Illinois Kids  –  Alicea S

Wishes empower critically ill children an opportunity to dream beyond their circumstances, infusing them with hope for the future, strength to carry them through their treatment, and joy to share with their family.

Make-A-Wish Illinois  –  Alicea S

Autobarn Subaru of Countryside chose Make-A-Wish Illinois as their Charity of Choice during this year's Share the Love Campaign. That means that customers could decide to give their donation to help kids specifically in Illinois - the children right here in their schools, neighborhoods, and communities. Autobarn went above and beyond to make sure Make-A-Wish was front and center during the campaign, setting up a beautiful Make-A-Wish display with real wish stories from Chicagoland kids. The results were simply incredible. The Autobarn raised over $25,000 for Make-A-Wish Illinois in just over a month. This simply could not have been done without the wonderful compassion and dedication of the staff. Nation-wide, the Share the Love campaign raises over $3 million dollars for Make-A-Wish. These funds to grant incredible wishes to children battling life-threatening illnesses, to provide them with hope, strength and joy.

As part of it’s on-going support of local communities during their “Share the Love Event”, Subaru of Countryside presented a generous donation to BEDS Plus of nearly $5,000 in a ceremony on April 20th. BEDS Plus was selected by Subaru of Countryside as their "Hometown Charity" during this national event. From November 19, 2015 to January 2, 2016, customers who purchased or leased a new Subaru vehicle were able to select from a list of charities to receive a donation. “We chose BEDS Plus as our Hometown Charity because of the tremendous work they do locally to help the many issues facing our homeless neighbors”, said Gina Fisher, President of Subaru of Countryside. “Since 1988, BEDS Plus has given the homeless a safe place to sleep, hot homemade meals, professional counseling and the job services they need to become self-sufficient. These are people right in our backyard in Lyons, Stickney, Riverside and Proviso townships." BEDS Plus is extremely grateful to Gina, all of the good people of Subaru of Countryside.
