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:

Subaru Loves Pets

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 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.

Environment

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.

Education

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

Community

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.

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.

Subaru has donated more than $4.5 million dollars to
Make A Wish, helping to grant 610 wishes in the U.S.

How is Clements Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

We're lucky we live in such an awesome community. It has so much to offer. So we do what we can to support the community we love. We want to be involved. Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits.

Love Promise Stories from Clements Subaru

Dogs get their Day in Downtown!  –  Jenna B

Dogs get their Day in Downtown!

First, thank you for your continued support of Dogs Downtown. Without you, this event would not be possible. I am excited to share that we had an estimated 9,000 in attendance at Dogs Downtown 2016! As you may recall, last year our attendance was 3,300. We are absolutely thrilled with not only the turnout, but the positive responses we have been receiving. This event was FREE and open to all of our favorite four-legged friends and their humans! Everyone enjoyed the activities, performances, games and give a ways. Congratulations on a successful event. We value our partnership with Clements Subaru and hope to have the opportunity to work with you again next year.


Fun for Everyone!  –  Brent A

Fun for Everyone!

Thanks so much for your sponsorship of this year's ROCHESTERFEST GRAND PARADE! The parade is one of the most popular summer traditions in the Med City. We had great weather, thousands of great spectators who had loads of fun. The generous support of great sponsors like CLEMENTS SUBARU make it possible for Rochesterfest to exist and for this annual "Celebration of a City" to continue to connect people through a variety of wholesome, entertaining community events. This year, with more than 60 different events over the nine-day celebration, it was "Fun for Everyone!" My sincerest thanks.


"Pop Up Play" Welcomed by Community  –  Karen C

The first "Pop Up Play" for the Museum was welcomed by the community. All guests were able to play, socialize and innovate with us at Forager. Adults and children alike were able to experience the Power of Play. The generosity of our corporate community is vital to the success of these kinds of events. On behalf of Minnesota Children's Museum Rochester and the Event and Sponsorship Committee, thank you for Clements sponsorship of the 2016 JUMBOJenga at the Platinum level. We hope that you will continue to enjoy playful learning by utilizing the JUMBOJenga set with your staff!


Successful Football Season for Med-City Freeze  –  Storm S

Successful Football Season for Med-City Freeze

It was a dream of ours to bring amateur football back to the city of Rochester and surrounding communities, and to create a safe, fun and exciting environment fans could be proud of. The community showed major support to Med-City Freeze, and at the top of the list was Clements Subaru. You supported us. You believed that we could start a new team from the ground up. The Freeze went 7-2. We outscored foes 254-95 during the regular season. Thank you for being present at the games - helping to make Mother's Day extra fun with giveaways, throwing out footballs during halftime, etc. We showed our appreciation by helping out at non-profit events, picking up litter, and we plan to do more. It was a tremendously exciting first year! We are grateful. Med-City Freeze is a full contact 9-man semipro football team based out of Rochester, MN - a member of the Southern Plains Football League.


We 'Dig" our new Subaru Dealership!  –  Rita D

We 'Dig

Look at our faces. We're excited. We're proud. We're building a new eco-friendly state of the art sales and service facility! This was our groundbreaking ceremony complete with gold shovels and hard hats. It was a beautiful June day. Customers, Chamber Ambassadors, VIPs and media were on hand to celebrate with us. Our $8-million dealership is being built on a five-acre parcel of land. With construction underway, it should open in December. We'll add 20 new positions, generating more than one million dollars in new payroll. Clements Managing Partner John Wade said, "As one of the fastest growing car brands in the USA and Southern Minnesota, Subaru is experiencing its 53rd consecutive month of growth. This expansion is what we need to keep up with the service and sales demands of our customers."


2016 Stellar Care Award  –  Rita D

2016 Stellar Care Award

The wall in our service drive boldly says, "Providing you a truly exceptional experience." That’s our goal. Not only in our service department but in all areas of Clements Subaru. We earned the coveted Subaru Stellar Care Award for 2016 and we are so proud! It's not easy to achieve. Only an elite group of Subaru retailers achieve this recognition each year. To earn it our dealership must achieve and maintain Stellar Care performance standards and objectives. The list is long and the expectations are high. We must pass continual review by our customers and meet annual objectives established by Subaru of America, Inc. in many areas. What does this mean to you? The best dealership experience possible, one that we hope will have you coming back for many years ahead. Thank you for being our customer.

Annual Spring Fest by Friends of Oxbow  –  Peggy M

Annual Spring Fest by Friends of Oxbow

Thank you for once again being a sponsor for our annual Spring Fest at Oxbow Park - and also for the basket for the silent auction. We had a great day and raised a record amount for Oxbow Park and Zollman Zoo. All money will be used for a future expansion and renovation of the Nature Center - long overdue. Oxbow Park was founded in 1969 and is one of Olmsted County's premier parks. There's no admission charge for the park or zoo and more than 70,000 people visit annually. Again, thank you for your generosity. It is greatly appreciated.


Furry-Friendly Pet Walk Supports Paws & Claws!  –  Jenna M

Furry-Friendly Pet Walk Supports Paws & Claws!

Thanks so much for your support. The 22nd annual Pet Walk raised a little over $20,000 this year. The Pet Walk was packed with fun activities for pets and their humans including free food and beverages, doggy bandannas, temporary tattoos, and of course, a wonderful walk in the sun. All proceeds benefited Paws and Claws Humane Society - committed to partnering with the community to shelter, protect and seek adoptive homes for abandoned or lost companion animals. Local pet-friendly businesses, like Clements Subaru, added to the event. Your guys were so much fun and I hope we can continue with this tradition in years to come. Thanks again! We couldn't do it without support from sponsors like Clements Subaru!


Record #litterbitbetter Pick-Up Week!  –  Rene L

Record #litterbitbetter Pick-Up Week!

Check out the haul of trash that Clements Subaru bagged up, saving it from the ditch and the Zumbro River. Thanks for being out there and involved in Rochester. This was the 10th Annual Help Make Rochester a Litter Bit Better! Event. 6.58 tons of trash (burnable waste - goes to Waste to Energy Facility). 2.09 tons of metal, tires and electronic waste (to be recycled). 1.00 ton of recyclables (bottles, glass, cans, cardboard - to be recycled). TOTAL = 9.67 TONS ... 19,340 POUNDS ... Less waste collected than last year! Over 122 TONS of litter have been picked up by volunteers thru the last ten years of the event. Thanks again for Making Rochester A Litter Bit Better!


Help Protect the Monarch Butterflies  –  Rita D

Help Protect the Monarch Butterflies

Thank you to everyone who visited Clements Subaru during the month of April. We handed out 200 milkweed seed packages so customers could pledge to help the monarch butterflies thrive and become a butterfly hero. Did you know that one out of three bites on our dinner plates is made possible by pollinators? We must protect the monarch butterfly! All of us at Clements Subaru are proud to have a National Wildlife Federation's Certified Wildlife Habitat. Stop by and check out our commitment to the environment. #SubaruLovestheEarth


Perfect Day for a Plunge  –  Kevin T

Perfect Day for a Plunge

Despite single digit temperatures, the Rochester Polar Plunge saw 935 people jump into the icy water and raise more than $245,000 for Special Olympics Minnesota. The Polar Plunge is part of Minnesota law enforcement's yearround Law Enforcement Torch Run fundraising schedule to benefit Special Olympics. All proceeds go to Special Olympics Minnesota and are dispersed throughout the state. Among first-time plungers were football players Marcus Sherels of the Minnesota Vikings and Tim Nela of the Rochester Freeze/Clements Subaru. The pair jumped in with members of the Rochester Flyers, a local Specials Olympics team that serves more than 250 athletes. The athletes that got to plunge and meet you at the Polar Plunge were very excited and still are. Thank you.


A Chair Affair Breaks all Records!  –  Jennifer T

A Chair Affair Breaks all Records!

Wow! What a fantastic event! We continue to reach new heights because of your support. I thank you. Our staff and volunteers thank you. And the kids of Boys & Girls Club of Rochester thank you. A Chair Affair 2016 was a spectacular evening, raising $391,646 for kids! As we continue to serve youth in this community, I am filled with pride and hope - pride in all that we have already done to support kids, and hope as we embark on 2016 with such an incredible start. Your support allows hundreds of kids to have a positive outlook in life and believe in themselves to be all that they can be.

Big Turnout for Business After Hours

Business After Hours (BAH) is Rochester's award-winning, premier networking event held at a different Chamber of Commerce member's place of business each month. BAH, which won the Rochester Convention and Visitors Bureau "Known for Networking" award in 2007, brings together upwards of 250 businessmen and women for networking, door prizes, hors d'oeuvres and refreshments.

Great Snow Ball celebrates the Power of Play!

On behalf of Minnesota Children's Museum Rochester and this year's Great Snow Ball committee, thank you for Clements sponsorship of the 2015 Great Snow Ball. The generosity of our corporate community is vital to the success of this event. We are thankful for Clements ongoing support. It was a wonderful evening celebrating the Power of Play. We raised nearly $17,000 to support the "Play for All" program, making the Museum more accessible to everyone in the community.


Pet Adoption Fun!  –  Tanya J

Pet Adoption Fun!

Paws and Claws Humane Society has a tremendous impact on Rochester and its surrounding communities. It's a busy place. We can provide care for 125 lost or abandoned companion animals on a daily basis. That means we average about 100 pet adoptions a month! It was fun to partner with Clements Subaru. October was Subaru Loves Pets month and Clements Subaru provided us with bright orange Subaru Loves Pets drawstring bags filled with goodies. People LOVED them! Thank you so much!


Football Friday Tailgate Party!  –  Scotty M

Football Friday Tailgate Party!

Nothing brings a community together like their unwavering love for high school football, and the 2015 season promised to be a banner year for all four Rochester teams Mayo, Lourdes, Century and John Marshall High School. We teamed up with Clements Subaru for the first ever Football Fridays. It was a huge success! Each week 106.9 KROC was live at one of the games for a tailgate party. Fans turned out to show their school spirit and for fun, music and prizes. Minnesota Vikings and JM alum Marcus Sherels was even on hand signing autographs and taking pictures with fans. Clements Subaru was great to work with. We wouldnt have been able to showcase our local schools without their support. Hopefully this will become an annual partnership with Clements.


RCTC celebrates its 100th anniversary!  –  Greg S

RCTC celebrates its 100th anniversary!

When Rochester Community and Technical College asked KSMQ Public Television to produce a documentary celebrating their Centennial Anniversary and History we accepted! To help with costs of production we looked for sponsors. Clements Subaru jumped at the opportunity to help make the story about an important part of their community possible. Clements Subaru also supports quality and excellence in their community by sponsoring local public television programs on a regular basis.


Helping Meals on Wheels  –  Brenda W

Helping Meals on Wheels

Partnering with Clements Subaru in June to Stuff the Subaru was a great experience. Not only did we gather needed items for Meals on Wheels survival kits, Clements loaned us a vehicle for the Rochesterfest Parade! Family Service Rochester looks forward to our continued work together. Earlier this year our Meals on Wheels program received a grant of $1,750. It was made possible by the Subaru Share the Love event, through which Subaru donated $250 for every new vehicle used or leased to a participating charity of the owners choice. Thank you Clements Subaru!


Rochester Tailgate Party supports at-risk youth  –  Darrell T

Rochester Tailgate Party supports at-risk youth

Bolder Options is celebrating 21 years of changing the lives of youth in Minnesota. This year's Rochester Tailgate Party was a huge success. Without donations like yours, we could not continue our mission of "teaching youth to succeed in ALL of life's races." Thank you for supporting the youth of Bolder Options.


Willow Creek Lifelong Learners  –  Josie W

Willow Creek Lifelong Learners

Clements Subaru adopted my EL classroom. I cannot express enough how grateful I am on behalf of my students. It means so much for them to know that there are people out there who care about their success and want to invest in their futures. We will work everyday to become future members of society who seek to be lifelong learners. Thank you.


Doggone Good Day!  –  Jenna B

Doggone Good Day!

The Rochester Downtown Alliance (RDA) partnered with Clements Subaru on its first ever Dogs Downtown. Our vision was to create a place for pet owners and dog lovers alike to gather and enjoy family fun activities at Peace Plaza in the heart of the city. The day was a hit! Through our Eco-Counter we estimated 3,300+ people attended Dogs Downtown. That was just people and not our 4-legged friends. Activities ranged from training demonstrations, dog pampering, guest speakers and giveaways of doggy treats. It highlighted the great pet resources offered in Rochester, MN. We enjoyed the partnership and support of Clements Subaru. We heard lots of wonderful feedback and we appreciated their energy with this inaugural event.


Clements Subaru sponsors Grand Parade!  –  Carole B

Rochesterfest has been the citywide celebration in Rochester for 30 plus years. This nine-day celebration has something for everyone - with the Grand Parade being the highlight. A huge "thank you" to Clements Subaru for sponsoring the Rochesterfest Grand Parade. The thousands who lined the Parade route join us in saluting your great community involvement. Clements has always been a leader in supporting Rochesterfest and many other local groups.


LITTER Bit Better  –  Mike K

LITTER Bit Better

One week every April, thousands of volunteers work together across Rochester to scour ditches, parks, waterways and boulevards to pick up tons of trash! Service groups, businesses, scout troops, schools, faith groups, and neighborhoods pitch in to make A Litter Bit Better! an annual event in the City of Rochester. This year Clements Subaru joined in and picked up litter along the West Side of the Zumbro River from 16th Street SW to 12th Street SW. Thank you all again for all of your time and hard work! More than 3,800 pounds of recycling and 27,000 pounds of trash were collected by volunteers during this year's event. That's a combined total of over 15.44 tons! Your efforts, combined with those of over 3,000 participants, resulted in yet another successful year of A Litter Bit Better!
