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 Subaru of Kennesaw dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Our Love Promise can be seen through our on-going 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 Subaru of Kennesaw

Subaru and Subaru of Kennesaw 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 brings HOPE to dyslexic learners!  –  Susan S

Thank you to Subaru of Kennesaw for sponsoring our GRACEPOINT Annual Restoring Hope for Dyslexic Learners Gala! Every year at GRACEPOINT, we find that there are dyslexic students who desperately need the help that our school can provide, but do not have the funds to attend. To address that need, our school holds this annual auction to raise tuition assistance funds for those students needing financial help. Over $50,000 was raised and we are so grateful to Subaru of Kennesaw for supporting our students! Your generosity is changing lives and giving HOPE!

Subaru Goes BEYOND!  –  Kimberly O

We are forever grateful for the love shown and the community vision shared with us by Subaru of Kennesaw. With their generosity, Beyond Limits Therapeutic Riding had the privilege of bringing 18 riders to travel and compete in the Special Olympics horse show in Gainesville, Georgia. Months of hard work and preparation go into this competition each year, including the development of riding skills, pattern memorization, and physical and emotional strengthening, preparing each individual to proudly display what has been learned and accomplished. Riders and their loved ones are able to bond and cheer on their teammates as well as those on opposing teams, because above all else, this competition unifies the special needs community for a celebration of shared achievements. Beyond Limits also strives to unite members of our local community by hosting an annual Beyond Autism Horse Show. Riders living with disabilities ranging from autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and a variety of other diagnoses, are able to come together and compete alongside typical equestrians in our community. Our goal is to embrace and embody Subaru's 'Share the Love' promise by providing an all-inclusive equestrian competition for all to participate, learn, and grow. From Special Olympics, to our Beyond Autism Horse Show, to summer camps that GO BEYOND, Subaru has truly shared the love by touching the lives of countless individuals. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting not only Beyond Limits, but an entire community that is reached through your generous donations.

Camp feels the love thanks to Subaru of Kennesaw!  –  Liz L

Subaru of Kennesaw, you have truly made us feel the love at Camp Twin Lakes. Share the Love 2019 raised more than ever before in support of the 10,000 campers with serious illnesses, disabilities, and life challenges we serve each year! In these uncertain times, this gift is especially meaningful to our organization and more importantly, to our campers. The need for adaptive, supportive programming is more pressing than ever, and thanks to Subaru’s generosity, Camp Twin Lakes will be able to meet the unique needs of the children and families we serve. While we are unable to serve children in-person now, your funding allows us to provide innovative virtual programming to our campers. Campers will have opportunities to interact with their peers, learn new skills, and achieve personal goals through adaptive online programs…just like they do when they attend Camp in-person each year! Camp is eager and ready to serve our campers again in-person once it is safe to do so, and this meaningful gift will provide camper scholarships, ensuring that Camp is accessible to all children. Thanks to Subaru of Kennesaw, our campers will continue to turn challenges into triumphs, and for that we are truly grateful!

Make a Dog’s Day  –  Andy A

Subaru is proud to establish the first-ever National Make A Dog’s Day October 22nd. As part of Subaru Loves Pets month, we’re inviting all dog lovers to do something extra special for their furry best friends. Plus, Subaru will be focusing our efforts on helping the hardest-to-adopt shelter Dogs –those with special needs-find homes. Get ready to fall in love withThe Underdogs. #MakeADogsDay Meet Gabi! Gabi has been at the Humane Society of NWGA (Northwest Georgia) for seven years. If you asked the volunteers to pick their favorite animal at the shelter, Gabi would win hands down. She does not do well with dogs or cats so must be the only animal in an adult only family. She loves people and will bond very quickly to you. Gabi would make someone a great companion. She is waiting patiently for her forever home. If you have room in your heart and your home for this sweet girl then please fill out an adoption application, highlight and right click this link: #MakeADogsDay #SubaruLovesPets #TheUnderdogs

Subaru and LLS Support Cancer Patients  –  Sydney T

On July 18, 2019, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society - Georgia Chapter and Subaru of Kennesaw had the pleasure of delivering 80 blankets to Kennestone Hospital Cancer Center as part of the Subaru Loves to Care program. Jennifer Cope, Public Relations representative for Subaru of Kennesaw, and her staff delivered these comforting gifts and personalized messages of hope written by the customers and staff of Subaru of Kennesaw. This incredible act of generosity was warmly received by Kennestone Hospital Cancer Center 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 Kennesaw, Georgia community. Many thanks to everyone at Subaru of Kennesaw and Kennestone Hospital Cancer Center, not only for a memorable day, but for supporting LLS’s mission to cure blood cancers and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

Subaru of Kennesaw Shares with Love with Camp!  –  Anna H

We can’t believe the love from Subaru of Kennesaw! Through Share the Love 2018, Subaru is sending 41 kids with serious illnesses, disabilities, and life challenges to Camp Twin Lakes this summer. Camp partners with more than 60 other nonprofit organizations to serve 10,000 kids and young adults with cancer, Type I diabetes, brain injuries, hemophilia, auditory impairments, developmental disabilities, sickle cell disease, Celiac disease, Crohn's and colitis, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, limb deficiencies and amputations, arthritis, as well as kids in foster care, children with an incarcerated parent, children in military families, and kids who have lost a loved one - just to name a few! Thanks to Subaru, our kids will turn challenges into triumphs, break isolation, grow in independence, and discover new skills and capabilities during their time at Camp. As one camper said, “When I’m at Camp, I am no longer different from everyone else. At Camp Twin Lakes, different becomes normal, and for me that’s a dream come true.”

Subaru of Kennesaw goes Beyond!  –  Kimberly O

Impact. By definition, Mr. Webster explains it as “to have a strong effect on someone or something.” We all impact lives every day; sometimes on purpose, and sometimes it's unplanned, often unnoticed. We at Beyond Limits Therapeutic Riding have experienced an impact that has rocked us to our core. That impact has had a ripple effect in the lives of those we serve, as well as their family and peers. Thanks to the impact and vision of Subaru of America, and Subaru of Kennesaw, we were able to host an event that will continue to inspire, encourage, and show, that with a little help from our friends, we can all go Beyond! At Beyond Limits Therapeutic Riding we get the privilege to work with the Special Needs community; riders of all ages, abilities, shapes, and sizes, that come together with a love of horses and big dreams to go with it. Because of the impact, Subaru has had on our program, and with their support, we were able to bring the community together with our Beyond Autism Horse Show. Riders living with disabilities ranging from autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and a variety of other diagnoses, were able to come together and compete alongside the typical equestrians in our community. The vision of the event is an all-inclusive equestrian competition, which walks hand and hand with Subaru’s inspiring title of ‘Share the Love.” It was a day full of love, compassion, and a community that cares. Our riders were joined with other local riders from nearby farms. Some, their classmates, that now know they are more than just their diagnosis. Others, just horse-crazy kids who realize the joy their presence brought to others, and will now be regular volunteers on our schedule. Parents, who are tired and weary, were revitalized as they watched their child, who may need assistance walking on the ground, trot independently on their horse around the arena. Subaru may never truly know the whole impact they have on the individuals who are recipients of their ‘Share the Love’ vision, but I promise you, it’s more than just a check. It’s a smile from a non-verbal rider when they see their horse walk into the barn. It’s a tear that falls off a mother’s cheek when her daughter, who struggles in school, comes running up with a blue ribbon, confident in her success. It’s a young boy in a wheelchair, being carried by strangers across the finish line in a stick horse race as if it were the Kentucky Derby. These are the moments we live for, these are the moments of impact. Thank you, Subaru of America, and Subaru of Kennesaw, for trusting us to be good stewards of our community’s gifts, and for being a champion for us all.

Street Dog Dash 5K  –  Haley W

Subaru Kennesaw gave to the Street Dog Dash in its inaugural year when our race and cause was not well-known. Subaru generously gave to our community event and believed in our vision. The success of our first race would not have been possible without the support of Subaru, and because our race was such a success, we were able to send much-needed funds to non-profits over in Asia working to end the cruel Dog Meat Trade and save innocent lives, and also to local animal shelters. Subaru truly cares about the community and they support so many great causes in order to make the world a better place. I’m so thankful that they chose to partner with Street Dog Dash, and I look forward to working with them again for our second annual race on April 13, 2019!

Subaru Loves Mostly Mutts  –  Marie H

Many thanks to Subaru of Kennesaw General Manager, Louis Kaissieh, Salesman Richard King and PR Professional Jennifer Cope for making this holiday season a little brighter for Mostly Mutts and the many homeless animals in our community. On Sunday, October 28 Subaru of Kennesaw rolled out the red carpet for Mostly Mutts volunteers and several of our adoptable dogs. Subaru staff and customers were able to meet adoptable dogs and learn about our mission of rescue and adoption in our community. Subaru staff donated a van load of pet supplies, toys and dog food to help care for animals in need. On November 9 Richard King and his wife attended Mostly Mutts Cabaret Night Fundraiser and presented our Executive Director Tammy Turley with a $500.00 donation from Subaru. Mostly Mutts is honored and gratified to accept such a generous donation. With the help of Subaru, Mostly Mutts will Be able to even more animals in our community in 2019.

Subaru Delivers Warmth and Hope to Cancer Patients  –  Audrey S

The delivery took place on July 12, 2018; the cancer center staff expressed great appreciation for the gifts they received. Tricia Hernandez, LLS Senior Manager of Patient Access, facilitated the delivery.

The Cancer Center at Kennestone Hospital thanks Subaru of Kennesaw and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for the 3rd consecutive year of helping bring warmth and hope to their cancer patients through the Subaru Loves to Care Program.

Subaru of Kennesaw sends kids to Camp Twin Lakes!  –  Merrick B

Subaru of Kennesaw has blown us away again this year! Through Share the Love 2017, Subaru is sending 42 kids with serious illnesses, disabilities, and other life challenges to Camp Twin Lakes this summer. We partner with 64 other nonprofits to serve children with muscular dystrophy, asthma, heart disease, spina bifida, cancer, diabetes, autism, developmental disabilities, as well as kids in foster care, transplant recipients, kids who have lost a loved one, and many other challenges. Thanks to Subaru, these children have the opportunity to build confidence, gain independence, connect to a community, and experience healing through the joy of camp. Thank you, Subaru of Kennesaw!

Donations to the Humane Society of Cobb County  –  Sarah C

Yes, Subaru does love pets! Jennifer partnered with us to find out what our immediate and most common needs are. Just a few weeks later a supply of cat and dog food, paper towels and much, much more arrived at our door to help us take care of the animals in our community. Being a no-kill, non profit animal shelter, we greatly rely on the generosity of others to help whenever it's possible. This donation has helped our organization in many ways. Thank you Subaru and your clients for making this possible; you have made a positive difference in the lives of animals in need and those that care about them.

Generous Donation @ WES  –  Kimberly M

The staff at Woodstock Elementary School was amazed at the very generous donation of beautiful books that were given to the school. We received a wide variety of both fiction and nonfiction hardcover and paperback books that will be used in a variety of ways! We will use the books for read-alouds, in our STEM lab, to research science and apply in our garden and for guided reading. Subaru of Kennesaw is a strong supporter of public education and your efforts are appreciated. Our Instructional Lead Teacher (Deb Havens) will distribute them to our classrooms for an early holiday gift. With Appreciation, Kim Montalbano, Principal Principal

Sami & Her Service Dogs ¿¿  –  Aisha A

Hi Jenny, After speaking with you earlier, I just wanted to share how wonderful the team it has always been at Subaru of Kennesaw! My daughter Sami has many medical issues which has required that she have two service dogs: Athena and Aries. My daughter Sami named them of course! :-) The vehicle I owned before we got her service dogs was just not large enough to accommodate her service animals. So, we needed to trade it in for a larger vehicle, to accommodate their growing size, as they are both full-blooded German Shepherd's. Mickey, Lewis and the other staff members at Subaru of Kennesaw, made this transition very easy affordable and hasslefree! Coming from a one parent household with a daughter who has a multi-disciplinary illness, has made my budget very strenuous at times. So, Sami and I just wanted to thank you all for the excellent care and customer service you have all given us throughout the years! And Samantha's service dogs thank yoy too, as they have plenty of room when they take a ride with Sami, which is quite often! Many thanks to all of you Subaru of Kennesaw! Sincerely, Aisha Alnizarr, Samantha Lynn Dupree AND Athena ¿ & Ares ¿ ( Athena is shown in the picture below, taking a break from training at K-9? international training center in Canton GA .)

Subaru Loves To Care For Cancer Patients  –  Chantal R

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society – Atlanta Chapter and the Subaru of Kennesaw team recently joined hands to deliver blankets to the WellStar Kennestone Medical Center in Marietta, GA. We delivered multiple boxes of care-kits and blankets to the front of the hospital and were able to take them inside through the facility. There was so much love and support from Jennifer Cope and the Subaru of Kennesaw team who were able to join and assist in delivering blankets and care-kits, the LLS team, and hospital staff Rachel White, Michelle Guibault, Susan Willard, Leena Nehru, Gigi Bellamy, and Ginger Peterson. We are so grateful for the opportunity that Subaru has given us!

Camp Twin Lakes loves Subaru of Kennesaw!  –  Merrick B

Camp Twin Lakes is incredibly grateful for Subaru of Kennesaw's partnership through Share the Love 2016! Camp Twin Lakes provides camp programs for children with serious illnesses, disabilities, and life challenges. In 2016, 313 of our summer campers came from Cobb County, and Subaru's generous donation of $20,000 will cover the camp costs for 36 of those campers (4 whole cabins) this year! What an incredible impact! While at camp, those campers will get to climb our rock wall, ride horses, learn to swim, and more, all while meeting friends who are facing the same illnesses and challenges. In the words of one of our campers, "Camp gives me the strength to face another year." Thank you, Subaru of Kennesaw, for giving our campers strength, confidence, and joy!

Subaru of Kennesaw Has Gone Beyond!  –  Kimberly O

We are so honored to be a part of this years Subaru Share the Love Event! Thank you so much for your generosity and support of our program and the amazing riders we serve. At Beyond Limits Therapeutic Riding we strive for community awareness of the awesome abilities those living with Special Needs have, especially on the back of a horse. The outstanding gift from Subaru will help us continue our goal and keep our riders on the saddle! Thanks again Subaru, for helping us Go Beyond!

Woodstock Elementary School Garden  –  Josie W

On behalf of Woodstock Elementary School, we are incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to partner with Subaru during their Subaru Loves Learning event. Subaru helped our school establish Phase 1 of the new school garden. Thanks to our partnership with Subaru, we have been able to build and install plant beds and purchase picnic tables for the garden area which will serve as an outdoor classroom. Subaru has also contributed garden supplies, books, and a garden wagon for our classes. The students love them! The administrators, faculty, and students are so excited about this endeavor!

Subaru Supports Boarding for Breast Cancer  –  Lee E

My family business, Ambush Board Co., hosted a benefit event to raise money for Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC), a charity dedicated to helping those in the action sports community that are effected by breast cancer. Two of the three women in the Ambush founding family are breast cancer survivors. So, in a gracious effort to pay it forward for those who have not been so fortunate, we came up with the idea to raise money for B4BC. Subaru of Kennesaw gave a large cash donation and contributed an amazing prize for our silent auction/raffle. With the help of Jennifer Cope and Subaru of Kennesaw, we raised $6,624 for Boarding for Breast Cancer. We could not have done it with our the support of Jennifer and Subaru. My family and I are incredibly grateful for their donations.

Keeping America Beautiful  –  Subaru of Kennesaw S

Thank you for giving us your junk! We are pleased to announce that the 2015 Subaru E-Waste recycling program was a great success. Appreciative community members took full advantage of the opportunity to dispose of old electronics in the environmentally safe and COST-FREE program. We are proud to share Subaru of America's environmental commitment and aim to leave the land beneath our feet in better condition for the next generation. After all, driving an AWD Subaru is much more inspiring on beautiful off-road trails than the congested streets in between landfills.

April 1-30, 2015 E-Waste Recycling Event  –  Molly M

For six weeks annually, Subaru donates $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased to the purchaser's choice of participating charities. The mission of MUST is to serve those in need while transforming lives and communities.

MUST Ministries loves Subaru's support!  –  Cara R

The money raised (almost $13,000 so far) is used to help our neighbors in need by providing housing, clothing, food and employment services in four locations in Cobb and Cherokee counties. Subaru is an awesome supporter!

Subaru of Kennesaw Supports MUST Ministries  –  Rev. Dr. Ike R

What an amazing act of generosity MUST Ministries received from Subaru of Kennsaw! We are humbled by the sheer impact that the thoughtful gift will make in the lives of thousands of people in need. The Lord continues to bless MUST Ministries as we strive day in and day out to follow his teachings of "serving our neighbors in need"-transforming lives and communities in response to Christ's call. Just in the past year, almost 34,000 people living in poverty have been served in an eight county area, and 15,000 of those are children. The heartbreak of financial instability is taking a toll on our community, but MUST is here to provide a work recovery shelter, hot meals, groceries, job assistance, education, housing, summer lunches for hungry children, clothing and more. Please let each and every one at Subaru of Kennesaw know that your gifts have empowered MUST Ministries to help break the cycle of poverty. This gift will transform lives that feel lost or forgotten. As Jesus said in Matthew, "Truly I say to you, inasmuch as you have done it on one of the least of these my brothers, you have done it to me."

Subaru of Kennesaw Enthusiastic and Great Service  –  Mike C

I'm not sure I can appropriately express how sweet this car is.... Let's just say we're very happy! Our salesman and the finance guy are great and I have to tell you that the lady in the service department simply puts you guys in another stratosphere! I forgot her name, but it's hard to overstate how wonderful it is to have someone like that who seems so excited about making sure everything is done quickly, efficiently and with an infectious enthusiasm. She's a jewel for the dealership. Between your efficiency and knowledge and her enthusiasm, it makes me want to come buy another car just for the fun of it.... Thanks again for the great service.
