The 2018 Subaru Love Promise Customer Commitment Award

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.

We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.

“Love Changes Everything” by Sr. Theresa Sullivan  –  Emily H

“Love Changes Everything”  by Sr. Theresa Sullivan

“Love Changes Everything” by Sr. Theresa Sullivan, Director of Daybreak,A Project of Depaul USA April 5, 2018 Subaru of Macon wowed Daybreak, A Project of Depaul USA by their $20,000 check, the fruits of “Share the Love.” Thank you to Subaru of Macon and to everyone who purchased a Subaru. Your “love changes everything.” I hope you enjoy your Subaru as much as our participants will appreciate the fruits of this donation. 100% of this donation goes directly to providing basic necessities to our brothers and sisters who are homeless. Each year Daybreak, a Project of Depaul USA needs to raise 100% of our expenses. Think of the basic things you have each day: shower, food, laundry, medical care, technology… In 2017, Daybreak served a total of 1,522 men and women. These individuals visited Daybreak a total of 19,793 times. Daybreak also provided 19,588 meals and 11,311 hygiene services. It assisted 67 participants obtain employment and 20 secured permanent housing. An additional 21 participants moved to “better” living situations (i.e., from the streets to shelter or from a shelter into temporary housing). The Health Clinic at Daybreak, a partnership with Georgia College and State University and First Choice Primary Care Federally Qualified Health Center, saw 363 patients and provided 4,005 health services last year. Each of these services are acts of love which can “change everything.” Some of those 19,588 meals were served by Subaru of Macon employees. Daybreak is proud to be connecting with Subaru of Macon who truly has a heart for the community. In so many ways they have put their “Love Promise” into action. Our homeless brothers and sisters here at Daybreak have been touched by Subaru of Macon employees who came to serve breakfast and collected supplies we need at Daybreak. The night of our “Greater Macon Sleepout” 11 Subaru of Macon employees slept outside in solidarity with those who are homeless. General Manager, Ken Grinstead, demonstrated servant leadership; by the way he accompanied his team in setting up his tent and sleeping out. I love the song “Love Changes Everything.” I believe that we can and we do change the world through acts of love and kindness. In Macon we are blessed to have companies like Subaru who believe in the community and model how together we “share the love” and change the world. Thank you Subaru for being part of Daybreak mission and sharing your love with our participants who often feel the world’s scorn rather than love.


Subaru loves safe shelter  –  Theresa S

 Subaru loves safe shelter

On these cold winter days and yes, even on Macon’s beastly hot days, where do our homeless brothers and sisters find shelter? Subaru of Macon’s team has shared their time, talent and treasure with Daybreak, a project of Depaul USA, which is a day resource center for people experiencing homelessness. Each day at Daybreak, we count on our partners to assist us in alleviating the crisis of homelessness by providing laundry, showers, and access to computers, printers, and telephones, as well as clinic services and case management. Over the past few months, Daybreak participants were greeted by members of the Subaru team who woke up early so they could join the Daybreak team as they opened their doors at 7:30am to serve breakfast to people in Macon experiencing homelessness. In addition to that, Subaru collected and filled our pantry with supplies we use every day, including laundry detergent, coffee, canned fruit, sugar, shampoo……. At our holiday party, when Emily Hubbard placed a “Subaru and Outback" ornament on our tree, it was clear that the ornament represented what the tree was all about: a promise of love. Subaru, thank you for allowing Daybreak to benefit from “Share the Love,” a program that lives up to its name. Thank you for helping to support the over 1,200 people who come to Daybreak for shelter each year.

We were joined with Cancer Center director, Peyton Anderson, Ron Lazar, and several staff members to give patients their blankets. While we could not meet all the patient recipients for the blankets, we did have the pleasure of meeting Oslen Ware and Emmett Walker. Oslen is diagnosed with diffuse large B cell lymphoma and Emmett is diagnosed with a myeloproliferative neoplasm. Both Oslen and Emmett received care from the Georgia Chapter of LLS; Oslen has been a recipient of LLS Patient Support Services and Emmett recently received travel assistance. The Georgia Chapter is proud to have been involved with Subaru for such a noteworthy cause.


He lived and loves his Subaru  –  Dustin H

He lived and loves his Subaru

My brother is a single father of three he has had his eye on a Subaru for a while. I started working here at Subaru of Macon last year which made him excited. He came down and bought his very first Subaru, a Crosstrek. He was very impressed with his car and loved driving it. Three weeks into owning his first new car he was on his way to work at 3:45 am. He was traveling on 85 south just outside of Commerce, GA when he went to pass a truck and was struck head on by a man who was running from the police. The guy was driving an Audi A4 going approximately 120 mph. My brother Kyle said he just held on as his 2016 Crosstrek spun and rolled 8 times coming to a stop about 175 feet from the point of impact. He was able to open his passenger door and crawl out of his car, he walked away with minor scraps on his legs and bruising from being tumbled around in his car. He called me later that morning to explain what happened and said he will never drive anything other than a Subaru he was thankful and that his Subaru saved his life. Kyle wanted to know how soon we could get him approved for another Subaru he just wanted a Forester this time. I spoke with my sales manager Scott Chambers letting him know what happened, he got to work on the deal right away and bent over backwards to get him into his 2017 Forester the very next day. Since this accident Kyle tells everyone they need to buy a Subaru.

Subaru and Jay's HOPE  –  Christie J

Subaru and Jay's HOPE

When 7-year-old Kaitlyn stepped out of the shower, she noticed her leg was swollen. Her mom immediately took her to the hospital in her small town. Doctors referred Kaitlyn to a hospital in Macon, nearly two hours away from her home, and they were told she has cancer. For months, she has been traveling several times a week to appointments and treatments, close to 150 miles round trip each time. Aside from the emotional toll of her diagnosis, Kaitlyn's family quickly learned they would face major financial burdens. Thanks to supporters like Subaru of Macon, the Jay's HOPE Foundation is able to offer Kaitlyn and her family gas and meal cards for their trips to treatment. This is just one of the many ways your "Share the Love" campaign is helping our families with children battling cancer. Because of your donation, we can also offer support services like: -Tutoring for children who are homebound -Monthly social events -Mortgage and utility assistance -Care packages ...and much more. On behalf of our families, we would like to thank Subaru of Macon for their continued support of the Jay's HOPE Foundation.
