What is the Subaru Love Promise?

The Subaru Love Promise is just that. A promise. It is a promise to do right by our community by partnering with nonprofit education, health, community, environment, and animal organizations - to set Subaru apart through our deeds and the deeds of our partners. To be unlike any other car company by doing what is right and good, just for the sake of doing it.

The Love Promise starts with Subaru of America

We at Subaru of America stay true to the Love Promise by partnering with a wide variety of nonprofits and charities. In addition to these partnerships, every year Subaru, our owners, and our retailers join hands in the "Share the Love" event, giving back to charities across the country. Over the past 20 years, Subaru of America has donated over 50 million dollars to causes we care about, and logged over 28,000 volunteer hours.

All of the organizations we support have one thing in common: the unwavering dedication to improve the world and the lives of its people.

The charities' varying focuses and passions include:

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.


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.


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


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.


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 Reynolds Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

At Reynolds' Garage & Marine, our allegiance to the community began over 150 years ago on Hamburg Cove in Lyme, CT. For six generations, the Reynolds family has always felt it was their duty to support these organizations. Our Love Promise continues to grow with dedication and commitment to the Shore Line Community by building lifelong relationships with local nonprofits and charities, many of whom are friends and customers. Big enough to serve you. Small enough to know you.

Love Promise Stories from Reynolds Subaru

Express Your Love  –  Cassie S

Express Your Love

In conjunction with our Share the Love Hometown Charity partner, we collected art supplies during the Share the Love program from our staff and customers for their youth grief counseling expressive arts program. Center for Hospice Care of Southeast CT offers FREE art therapy for children 5-17 years old at their facility and in local areas to assist children in meeting their emotional needs during the loss of loved one. Each art bag, some even made from recycled Subaru banners, contained a personal note of encouragement from a Reynolds’ Subaru employee. Our love promise to our community is to take each new partnership and find a way to give back locally and continue to make our world a kinder, gentler place. The bags were presented along with our Share the Love check presentation to Hospice of SE CT.

Keeping Our Community Heart Healthy!  –  Cassie S

Keeping Our Community Heart Healthy!

Our inspiration this month for our Love Promise to our community came from our very own Subaru Ambassador Elizabeth Joss. Elizabeth shared her frightening story of her history with heart disease with Reynolds’ “If someone would have told me at the age of 42 that I had to have emergency double by-pass heart surgery, I would have thought they were crazy! However, that is exactly what happened in May of 2004. The doctors were as surprised as I was, even though I have a long family history of heart disease I was not diagnosed with red flag indicators such as: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high BMI, or Diabetes.Warning signs that lead me to seek out professional care were: extra fatigue, occasional pain in my jaw, broke out in cold sweats, sporadic pains in my chest/upper back, and heart palpitations.” In her honor and for the millions of others suffering from heart disease, we hosted a heart healthy day and collected donations from customers all month long for The American Heart Association. We partnered with our 2014 hometown Share the Love charity, The Middlesex Hospital. Their trained staff volunteered their own time and came on Saturday Feb 11th to offer free blood pressure readings and education to our attendees. Food and beverages were generously donated by our neighboring local family owned and operated shops! Our Love Promise is to keep the circle in motion, continuously offering our support for the community we call home!

A Community Partner and Neighbor  –  Sean M

A Community Partner and Neighbor

Serving Lyme, Old Saybrook, Norwich, New London and the Middletown communities since 1859, Reynolds Subaru has always prided themselves with quality cars and customer service. They call our community home and know how important it is to provide quality products and services to their friends and neighbors. They also know how important it is to support many causes that their neighbors in need count on and Center for Hospice Care is fortunate to be one of them. For Reynolds’ Subaru, Center for Hospice Care is very personal. The family lost their father, Gary, to a brain tumor almost four years ago, and Center for Hospice Care aided their family with many aspects of his care. The Reynolds made the decision to bring Gary home for his end-of-life care, but could not have done so without the support of Center for Hospice Care. Without the guidance of hospice, the level of care Gary received would not have been possible. Reynolds Subaru has long been advocates and contributors to our mission and recently Reynolds Subaru chose our cause to become a beneficiary through Subaru’s Share the Love program. It’s their intent to financially support Center for Hospice Care for the foreseeable future and promote our meaningful work to more residents in our community. From sponsoring our GALA, contributing to our Special Care Fund and the Share the Love promotion, Reynolds Subaru continually looks for new ways to further strengthen its partnership with Center for Hospice Care.

Reynolds' Subaru Gallups with High Hopes  –  Hayden R

Reynolds' Subaru Gallups with High Hopes

Our dealership has been a proud supporter of High Hopes, a non-profit organization that provides therapy to children and adults with disabilities through the use of their numerous horses. This program changes their lives by expressing themselves through offered programs such as therapeutic horseback riding, equine assisted activities and therapies, and training and education (Balfour, 2016). Last November Reynolds Garage and Marine Inc. partnered with High Hopes in a new way to Share the Love. In additional to their continual annual financial support of at least $1,000 annually, High Hopes was celebrating five years of their successful holiday market that showcases handmade horse gift items, family entertainment and hayrides. Free to attend, all they ask is for a canned food donation to our very local Shoreline Soup kitchen. To celebrate five years and to raise additional funds, they offered raffle prizes, the grand prize being a Subaru Crosstrek from Reynolds Subaru. 1,500 tickets were sold at $50 a ticket and Reynolds generously discounted the car for additional fundraising potential for High Hopes. The event was extremely successful for High Hopes, the Shoreline Soup Kitchen and for the Subaru Crosstrek winner Chip Dahlke. The Reynolds family and staff of Reynolds Subaru is proud to support local charities in our backyard and will keep sharing the love with High Hopes in 2016.

Reynolds Subaru Contibutes to The Trust for Public Land  –  Alicia S

Reynolds Subaru Contibutes to The Trust for Public Land

A big thanks to Reynolds Subaru for a generous contribution of $5,000 to The Campaign to Save the 1,000 Acre Forest. The Trust for Public Land and partners are raising $10 million to save The Preserve, a critical coastal forest in the communities of Old Saybrook, Westbrook and Essex Connecticut. We're all working together to protect the forest so that it remains a great place for kids (of all ages) to hike, snowshoe, birdwatch and play! (picture credit: Mim Adkins)
