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.

How is Riverhead Bay Subaru 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.

Inaugural "Paws On Parade" and "Ties & Tails"  –  Terrence O

Inaugural

"Paws On Parade" And "Ties & Tails" Took Place Over Columbus Day Weekend. Southampton Historical Museum along with Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation and Riverhead Bay Subaru teamed up over Columbus Day weekend for a duo of new Hamptons happenings. Participants started Saturday off with a pleasant stroll to the Bathing Corporation beach in Southampton during Paws on Parade. The pet-friendly walk departed from the Rogers Mansion for a nice stroll to the beach. After participants make it back to the Southampton Historical Museum grounds, they enjoyed contests, an agility course, auctions, pictures with Bay Street's Frankenstein Follies Halloween cast, face painting, a light breakfast sponsored by Town & Country Real Estate, and much more. Proceeds from the event will support the animals that reside at Southampton Animal Shelter until they find their forever homes and restoration programs at the Southampton Historical Museum. Later on, guests made their way to the Rogers Mansion for Ties & Tails, a Jazz Era themed cocktail party. From 5 to 7 p.m. Party goers enjoyed an open bar and hors d'oeuvres as they explored the 20-room mansion that was developed during Southampton's Gilded Age. Proceeds will support Southampton Animal Shelter, Southampton Village Fire Department, Southampton Village Ambulatory Corps and SYS's Stages Children Theatre Group.

The Mighty North Fork 5k

Our own Subaru sales manager George "The Greek Wonder" Reveliotis ran the Mighty North Fork Vineyard 5k on June 4th 2017 and placed 4th within his age bracket, sources say. He joined up with team TNT (Team In Training) which is the world's most successful endurance sports training program and benefits The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), the worlds largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services. It was a crisp 70 degrees that day. the wind was low an the time was right. While he struggled a bit around the 3.5k mark, he dug deep, powered through and found his stride ending the race with an 8:52 min/m pace. his overall time was 27:29.9 nd both he and the rest of us at Riverhead Bay are proud at the contribution h made to LLS.


Thank You from Stony Brook Cancer Center  –  Terri Q

Thank You from Stony Brook Cancer Center

The Stony Brook Cancer Center and SBUH Bone Marrow Transplant Unit (19S) would like express our deep appreciation to Riverhead Bay Subaru and the Long Island Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) for your tremendous support via the donation of the art kits and warm and cozy blankets with the personal messages of hope and encouragement for our adult and pediatric cancer patients. Your donation has already made a big difference in their lives! Our patients often feel chilled after the treatment or surgery and having a brand new inviting blanket to comfort them is very much welcomed.


Wildlife Habitat  –  M H

Wildlife Habitat

A local beekeeper visited my classroom to speak with my eighth grade students about the importance of pollinators. We were all struck by the importance of honey-bees in our food chain. When The National Wildlife Foundation offered my students a garden sponsored by Subaru, we were especially eager to play a role in sustainability. We were thrilled to receive 18 locally friendly plants that contribute food to pollinators, and funding to create a habitat for them. It's been very exciting working on our garden, and yesterday we saw the first monarch butterfly land there! Thank you, Subaru, for helping us to do our part to sustain the planet!


I Love My Subaru  –  Melena B

I Love My Subaru

Several years ago I traded in my Subaru for a vehicle I thought would give me more bang for the buck. It didn't take long to realize I made a mistake. Whenever anyone asked if I liked my vehicle, I'd reply "Yes but it's not a Subaru." Today I traded in my vehicle for a 2017 Subaru Forester and I couldn't be happier. Working with Linda Manning was like meeting up with a long lost friend. She was attentive to my request and found me the perfect Subaru. Linda additionally took time to provide me detailed instructions on all the features in the Forester & answer my questions. I couldn't have asked for a friendlier sales consultant. My Forester fits me like a comfy pair of shoes. Not only do I love how the vehicle handles on the road, it also looks great inside and out. I drove out of Riverhead Bay Subaru with a huge smile on my face and no regrets. When anyone ask if I like my vehicle I will eagerly reply "I LOVE MY SUBARU!"


Giving Back To A Place That Hits Home  –  Jamie G

Giving Back To A Place That Hits Home

Imagine a child lying in the hospital diagnosed with cancer. They are likely scared, angry & confused – a dark time for any cancer patient, let alone a child. The hospital rooms look all the same, white sheets, white walls, and having something special like a warm blanket & a care card with a message of hope livens up their room & brings comfort. The Long Island Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) partnered with Riverhead Bay Subaru to deliver blankets & care cards to pediatric patients undergoing cancer treatments at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital. For Riverhead Bay Subaru’s GM Anthony Mauro & GSM George Reveliotis it was also personal. George’s mom lost her battle to breast cancer five years ago. Anthony’s mother, Susan, 62, was diagnosed with lymphoma in the spring of 2016 & was treated at Stony Brook. For three months, Susan endured six rounds of chemotherapy and is currently preparing for a transplant in September. “Going to Stony Brook Hospital to offer blankets to patients going through the same situation as my mother was a reminder to me of how delicate our lives really are. I hope that we offered hope to those mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, children, and grandchildren whose families are fighting against the odds,” said Mauro. LLS is also thrilled to be chosen as Riverhead Bay Subaru’s Hometown Charity for their Share The Love program.


Riverhead Bay Subaru and Long Island LLS  –  Jamie G

Riverhead Bay Subaru and Long Island LLS

The Long Island Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) was thrilled to work with a company as generous as Subaru. LLS staff met with dealers, Anthony and George from Riverhead Bay Subaru in Riverhead, NY. Unfortunately, Anthony’s mom was recently diagnosed with a blood cancer and George’s mom passed away from one. For Anthony, we were happy to provide him with resources to share with his family and his mother. Both dealers were proud to work for a company as philanthropic as Subaru especially with a charity that hits so close to him. The LLS staff, Anthony and George met with the staff at Stony Brook University Hospital Cancer Center. One of the staff members, was child life specialist, Lauren, who works with children and their families to help them cope with the challenges of their illness. The Long Island Chapter of LLS has worked closely with Lauren as she recently raised nearly $100,000 for our Man & Woman of the Year campaign, a 10 week fundraising competition benefiting LLS. Since Lauren works with so many children, she was beyond thrilled to receive the care cards and blankets from Riverhead Bay Subaru. She knew what a difference these would make and was happy to provide these children with a special gift. It has been wonderful working with Subaru overall, but especially Riverhead Bay Subaru as they generously chose us as their 5th local charity for their Loves to Care program. We are humbled & honored and hope to continue this partnership with Subaru.
