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. 


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.


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 we supported teachers and students with donations of S400,000 in gift cards and school supplies. 


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. 


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 Farrish 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.

Love Promise Stories from Farrish Subaru

Subaru and Farrish Subaru believe in making a positive impact on the communities in which we live and work. We uphold that belief through our Love Promise Community Commitment. Every month, we select inspiring stories from customers and partners from around our area who strive to support our collective commitment and feature them here

Subaru Loves Learning  –  Kayla D

In October of this year Farrish Subaru had the pleasure to announce Daniels Run Elementary School in Fairfax, VA as the recipient of books for their students during the Subaru Loves Learning Campaign. The students received books geared toward science. The donation event was a great success and we are happy to know that the books are available to the minds of young readers. This Elementary School is unique because it is an Eco-School that has its own Eco-Code that encourages a green world. This school is well deserving of this donation because of their diverse curriculum and attitude about learning. Congratulations and Happy Learning!

Adding comfort to a beautiful space  –  Jessica A

The Schar Cancer Center at Invoa hospital is brand new and STUNNING. I brought a very new member of our team (it was just her 2nd day) along with me and she exclaimed “this is a hospital!!?”.As we waited in the lobby for the Farrish representative to arrive we talked to the hospital leads about the great resource this new cancer center is to patients and caregivers. Rather than having to go to many different facilities for various appointments, patients have everything they need right at their fingertips. When Kevin arrived from Farrish, we took a quick photo with all of the blankets and art kits and then had the pleasure of getting a tour of the facility from our hospital lead, Allison. The natural light, tree-top views, and beautiful art, made the Center feel less like a treatment center and more like a spa. Kevin shared a similar sentiment and Allison remarked “and your blankets only add to the feeling we are trying to cultivate for our patients”.It is so rewarding to get to facilitate a partnership that not only gives patients physical comfort, but also emotional.

Farrish Subaru Pet Adoption  –  KEN M

On Saturday, November, 10th, Farrish Subaru had the great privilege hosting the Friends Of Homeless Animals,(FOHA) for several hours allowing our local community and Farrish customers to potentially take in a loving homeless animal. The event was a huge success and we can't wait to host FOHA again in the very near future!!! - Ken McAlpine Farrish Subaru Sales Manager

Thank you Farrish Subaru for Sharing Hope & Warmth  –  Jenny H

Monday, June 25th was an exciting day for INOVA Fair Oaks! Spirits were high as hospital staff prepared for the blanket donation delivery from Farrish Subaru. Ralph Perkins from Farrish Subaru had helped make the delivery for the past two years and was looking forward to bringing hope and warmth to patients for the third year in a row. The LLS staff gathered out front to help Ralph unload the blankets to bring inside. A very special honored hero and proud Subaru owner, Dave Adler, was joining the delivery too. Dave is a cancer survivor and took some time to speak with Ralph about the incredible gift of hope and care that Subaru gives to patients. Dave shared with Ralph how he is doing well in remission and how glad he was to own a Subaru car!

Farrish Subaru Loves to Care!  –  Jenny H

The July 12th delivery day at INOVA Fair Oaks Hospital was filled with positive energy and a fun coincidence. During the delivery of the 80 blankets, 10 arts and crafts kits, and messages of hope, INOVA’s Allison Ewing shared with Ralph Perkins of Farrish Subaru that the crafts kits would be enjoyed by children in the family waiting area, and Dr. Mary explained how helpful the cards are to patients in staying positive.Dave Adler, an LLS Honored Hero, explained how he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 1999 and then only a year later was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in his shoulder. Now, in 2017, he is cancer free! When we asked why he wanted to support the Subaru delivery day, his reason was a nice surprise for Subaru. In 2007, he became a Subaru Outback owner because the car reminded him of his family’s station wagon when he was young. It has also provided the space he and his wife need as “Snowbirds” when they travel to Florida each year. Because of his connection to LLS and Subaru, Dave jumped at the chance to volunteer with the Subaru Loves to Care initiative. Seeing all the good Subaru does in the community, especially for hospitals, makes him feel proud to be a Subaru owner.
