The 2020 Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment Award

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. 

How is Napleton 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.

Napleton Subaru 12 Days of giving  –  TODD T

We’ve partnered with Napleton Subaru, Subaru owners, and sponsors to bring services to 58 Winnebago Co pet owners in need! Be on the look out for our giving Subaru sleighs, live FB posts and all the feel good to fill your heart this holiday season. We are so excited to give you a glimpse of what we do to keep pets happy, healthy with their people and out of our municipal shelter! Love. Love. Love. This is what this volunteer Subaru owner of “Napleton Subaru 12 Days of Giving” shared! “We got to meet Bear and his family today. Notice how Bear is sitting for his Sit treat? He got a couple awesome new collars, a "rope" leash, and some toys. With this sturdy leash and a nice collar, this seven month old cutey is ready for long walks around the neighborhood.They were so thankful! Bear is a sweety and loves to be stroked!”


Toy Drive Extravaganza  –  Mary B

Children’s Home & Aid will receive a load of toys as part of a month-long effort. Spectrum was selected by Napleton as its local nonprofit for this year’s Share the Love campaign. Spectrum parents Mary Baldauf and Sonia Chaudhry facilitated this unique project for Spectrum students to participate with Subaru in giving back to the community. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be at the event, and children will be able to do crafts, drink hot chocolate, decorate cookies, and listen to holiday carols from Grace Lutheran School. The Olive Branch food truck will also be present to give discounts to anyone who donates a toy that morning.

Napleton's Subaru + OSF Saint Anthony 07-10-19  –  Michelle M

On July 10, the LLS Illinois Chapter and Napleton’s Subaru had the pleasure of delivering 80 blankets to OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center For: Cancer Care 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 Napleton’s Subaru. This incredible act of generosity was warmly received by the OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center For: Cancer Care staff who were thrilled to distribute these comforting gifts to their patients. 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 Rockford community.


6th Annual Nik's Home Run  –  Brian Lyngaas L

On a rainy Oct. 14, 2017, at Rivets Stadium, in Rockford,IL, Volunteer Coordinator Linda Granneman and over 40 Volunteer CourseMarshals, including myself, Brian Lyngaas, stood by my 2015 Subaru Legacybefore taking our spots for the 6th annual Nik's Home Run 7K race.This event also included a 1.5 mile Fun Walk, Silent Auction, and Virtual Run.It’s the main fundraiser for Nik's Wish, the Nikolas Ritschel Foundation, whichis a 501(c)(3) charity. Nik’s Wish is for young adults (ages 18-24) fightingcancer who are too old for Make-A-Wish. In spite of gloomy weather forecasts,we were blessed with a prolonged break in the rain, which allowed the race,walk, heartfelt speeches, and the awards ceremony to be completed. The rain thenresumed coming down in buckets. A record turnout from the 415 registeredparticipants were cheered on by over 110 volunteers. Many guests also came justfor Grammy's Silent Auction. Though we fell short of our $75,000 goal to fundthe 15 Nik Wishes in progress, we came close. In 6 years, Nik's Wish hasfulfilled over 72 wishes, providing these brave young adults and their familieswith respite vacations (Disney), unique experiences (swimming with dolphins)and/or cherished items (an iPhone). Such a break from grueling treatment regimensrenews hope and strengthens faith to help them get through their difficultcancer battles. Visit Nik’s website for pictures and stories about these courageousyoung adults: www.nikolasritschelfoundation.org.


PAWS Humane Society FurBall Contributions  –  Susan G

Thank you so much for your continued generous support of PAWS Humane Society. We have appreciated your attendance each year at our largest fundraiser, FurBall. Each year we look forward to seeing your corporate table at the event. PAWS is completely funded by the donations of our community, attendance at events, and sponsorships from many outstanding businesses such as yours. With your support we were able to spay/neuter over 1600 animals this year through our low co-pay assistance program. We were also able to adopt 500 dogs and cats through our foster-based adoption program. PAWS also supports over 300 local classrooms by sending the "Kind News" to teach humane education to the children in our community. The money raised at this year's Furball was used to support these three programs and to help us plan to include more services for our community's animals in the upcoming year. We sincerely thank Napleton Subaru for your support. With your help, we can continue to help the many animals in need in our community. Sincerely, Sue Golan Board of Director's

Rockford MELD  –  Karen T

It was early in 2015 when a friend introduced me to Geoff at Napleton. We talked about what MELD does in the community providing programs and services for many young moms, dads and their children. Within a couple of months we were asked to submit our application for Love Your Subaru and then was selected to be the recipient agency to receive the 2015 Love Your Subaru donation. This could not have come at a better time. We had been notified in July 2015 that due to the State budget impasse, MELD would not be receiving funding for some of our homeless programs. Now in May of 2016 and still no state funds, the $15,010 we received will benefit MELD (Mothers and Fathers Establishing Life’s Direction) Programs for young moms, dads and their children including our MELD Homeless Shelter, Transitional Living Program, MELD Young Moms and Dads Parent Support Groups, Education and Employment Assistance Program and Homelessness Prevention/Rapid Re-Housing Program. Our mission is "guiding young parents to build a strong family and lead a responsible life by providing shelter, education and life skills training." The crew at Napleton's is awesome, not only with working hard to help support the cause and MELD, but also with their great service at the local Rockford locations. I ended up buying my new car at Napleton -love my car, the weekly car wash and the exceptional service team. Thanks so much!
