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.

Autonation Subaru Comforts Cancer Patients  –  Katie J

On Wednesday, June 26, 2019, Autonation Subaru of Spokane Valley partnered with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to give 80 blankets and arts and crafts kits to pediatric cancer patients at Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital. LLS exists to find cures for cancer and improve the quality of life of cancer patients and their families and Subaru helps LLS by donating critical research dollars to save more lives. This is the first year of this partnership and Sacred Heart was so thrilled to be able to hand out these beautiful, warm blankets and arts and crafts kits to their patients. These gifts are treasured by the patients as they are a welcome reprieve from the tolls pediatric cancer treatment takes on the body. Mary Savage from the Providence Health Care Foundation Foundation greeted Gail Swenson, Sales Manager of Autonation Subaru (both pictured here) and accepted the many boxes of items for patients. Sacred Heart Children’s and Providence Health Care Foundation is so thankful to be the recipient of this donation. Thank you for helping the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society fund local life-saving research to beat cancer and provide programs and services for patients in Spokane Valley and beyond.


Above and beyond for meals on wheels  –  mark l

Everyone at AutoNation Subaru has been a valued customer over the last year in either driving routes to help deliver meals to home-bound senior citizens or participating in a number of fundraising campaigns. Last November we teamed up with AutoNation Subaru for their Share the Love event and received a grant for $2500 as a result of their dedication and effort to our cause. Just last week, General Manager Jerry Bick coordinated a "take a test drive" fundraising promotion where autonation donated $10 for each test drive made over a week. That store wide effort raised $470 for the benefit of GSC meals on wheels. These two activities combined for almost $3000 which equates to feeding roughly 30 local home-bound seniors for a month! Both GSC Meals on Wheel clients and staff are impressed, inspired and grateful for the friends that we have made at AutoNation Subaru and we are looking forward to this continued partnership for years to come. It's definitely a win win for everyone!


Meals on Subaru Wheels  –  Mark L

Team Subaru volunteered 11 days,delivered 160 meals over 17 delivery routes across Spokane Valley. The team also helped deliver box fans to those clients who requested them prior to the arrival of the recent heat wave. GSC Meals on Wheels covers the entire county utilizing 40 routes delivering over 400 meals a day - each meal providing ONE THIRD of their daily calories and nutritional requirements. Also, we have determined that for one third of the clients receiving their meals at home, that this lone meal is their only food for the day! And for approximately HALF the clients who receive a meal, the visit by one of our volunteer drivers is the only human contact they have all day!!

On saturday November 22nd one of our sales associate Ethan Berk was driving back from lunch "from the corner of his eyes" saw a 1999 Subaru Outback limited on the side of the road broken down on busy street of sprague ave. He pulled over to assist a very nice older lady 82 years of age, asked if she was ok and then he proceeded back to his dealership "AutoNation Subaru" which is few blocks away to get help. Ethan came back to dealership and brought another sales associate to the trouble 1999 Subaru and both of them push the vehicle to our service department. customer then was given a free loaner vehicle while the vehicle was being repaired. she was very greatful of the kind service Ethan had provided. few day later she pick up her "now" fixed / repaired vehicle and made a side comment to Ethan when she was ready for a new car she would come see him. well; week later on November 29th she came in a bought a new 2015 Subaru Legacy and she is extremely happy with her purchase experience. This sale would have never happen if Ethen did not stop and do a good deed.
