Since 2018, as part of the Subaru Loves the Earth initiative, Subaru and retailers across the country have partnered with TerraCycle® and have collected over 7 million pieces of hard-to-recycle trash from their communities. Items such as snack bag wrappers, coffee cups, or used cabin air filters from service areas have been diverted from landfills and given a second life by TerraCycle when it is converted into durable furniture and other usable items.

Environment

Education

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 369,000 award-winning science books. In addition, through our partnerships with Staples and Adoptaclassroom.org we supported teachers and students with donations of $400,000 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.

Jordan's Sweet New Ride.

Austin Subaru loves giving back to the helpful and compassionate people in our community that do so many great things. Jordan is one of these very special individuals. As a foster mom who provides a safe house for anybody in need, Jordan works tirelessly every single day to be a support system and give people everyday necessities that, without her generosity, would be very difficult for them to access. She is a kindhearted person that feels as though everyone deserves a place to call "home". Jordan does an outstanding job of taking care of everyone, but there is one thing she desperately needed - her very own car. Knowing how passionate Austin Subaru is about the Love Promise initiative, Riptide and Foster Village reached out to Austin Subaru and asked if there was anything we could do to help Jordan out. The answer was an immediate yes. After figuring out a few logistics, Austin Subaru was happy to gift an amazing 2019 Subaru Ascent to Jordan! In preparation for Jordan's arrival at the dealership, the Austin Subaru team gathered in the showroom to give her a warm welcome and to thank her for everything she does for our community. Pure joy, gratitude, and excitement radiated from Jordan and her family, and it really was such a heartwarming experience to be a part of. Now, with her sweet new ride, Jordan can do all of the things she's been wanting to do for quite some time, such as giving her family a reliable source of transportation. From everyone at Austin Subaru, thank you so much Jordan for doing what you do. We really hope you are loving your Ascent! 

Paying a Special Visit to Leukemia Patients at St. David's!

Austin Subaru loves supporting the people in our community who need it most. In June of 2022, the crew at Austin Subaru had the incredible opportunity to partner with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society at St. David's Healthcare! This involved visiting leukemia patients currently being cared for at St. David's and hand delivering some super soft blankets to help them stay comfortable. Everyone was instructed to wear a mask, stay sanitized, and maintain social distance so that the patients were able to have happy visits while being safe. Staying in a hospital receiving treatment can feel as though you are isolated from the outside world, and it's not uncommon to feel lonely. The Austin Subaru team felt as though it was important to pay a special visit to these people to remind them of how loved and supported they are! While Austin Subaru is a long-time supporter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, this day was particularly special. Seeing the smiles on everyone's faces was so heartwarming, and they were all the sweetest people in the world! Austin Subaru is thankful to have been given this opportunity, and we cannot wait to continue supporting LLS in the future.

An Incredible Opportunity for the kids at RBI Austin!

Recently, Austin Subaru did a $3,500 sponsorship for RBI Austin Youth's 18U Regional Team! RBI Austin is an incredible non-profit organization whose main goal is to engage and develop inner-city Austin youth athletically, academically, and spiritually, empowering them to lead the transformation of their communities. They also work diligently to ensure that kids have a stable mentor in their lives, sports are accessible and affordable to all, people are connected through teams and collaborative work, and the gap is closed between the lower and middle class. Since doing this amazing work, RBI Austin has received many stories from parents and coaches about the impact that being part of a team, growing confidence in a skill, and finding a mentor has had on these kids! Overall, there are 1,400 kids enrolled in the summer programs at RBI Austin, and Austin Subaru was obliged to support them with this donation! Recently, the 18U Regional Team had the opportunity to travel to Dallas for the RBI Southwest Regional tournament, and Austin Subaru was thrilled to have been able to help make this happen! This was an amazing opportunity for these kids, and it'll be really cool to see what they accomplish in the future. Thank you RBI Austin for giving the team at Austin Subaru the opportunity to support!

Volunteer Day at Austin Pets Alive!

In June of 2022, the team at Austin Subaru was proud to support Austin Pets Alive! with a volunteer day as part of the Share the Love event! This involved repainting the adoption center, beautifying the Parvo units, and building an enclosure that will serve as a shaded area for APA! employees to see incoming animals. The purpose of this is to provide a nice place for the pets to live as well as a cleaner-looking place for guests to come and view what APA! has to offer. There are a lot of things APA! needs help with, but they don't have nearly enough volunteers for everything that needs to be done. As a very loyal and longtime supporter of this incredible organization, Austin Subaru was quick to offer a helping hand! All in all, this was a fantastic experience for the Austin Subaru crew and everyone had a really fun time while supporting a good cause. In addition to this volunteer day, Austin Subaru was proud to provide an $80,000 donation to Austin Pets Alive! We are so thankful for everything they do for the pets in our community. 

Paddle for Puppies 2022... WE'RE BACK!

May 15th, 2022 was a very special day for the team at Austin Subaru because for the first time since 2018, the Paddle for Puppies event was back in person & on the water! Presented by Austin Subaru, this extraordinary event took place at Rowing Dock on Lady Bird Lake, and it is intended to raise awareness and funds for the Parvo Puppy Program at Austin Pets Alive! Parvo, or "Canine parvovirus", is a highly contagious virus that affects a dog's gastrointestinal tracts. It is extremely painful for a puppy to go through and can be lethal. Austin Pets Alive is doing what they can to help these pups recover from the disease, but they need our help. For this reason, all proceeds from the Paddle for Puppies event went to the Parvo Program at APA! On this beautiful morning, participants got to choose between a canoe, kayak, or paddleboard to take on the lake and have an amazing time while supporting a great cause. Additionally, the blue algae was not at a dangerous level, so people were more than welcome to bring their furry friends on the lake with them! Paddle for Puppies is Austin Subaru's favorite annual event to host, so it was really good to be back this year. As a result of this glorious day, Austin Subaru was able to raise over $25,000 for Austin Pets Alive!

Austin Subaru Supports Hill Country Christian School of Austin

Thank you Chris Hudson and the rest of the team at Austin Subaru for doing a $1,000 sponsorship for the MegaKyntes robotics team at Hill Country Christian School of Austin!

Next, we will be preparing for the TAAPS tournament on April 2nd in Waco! We will also be recruiting and training next year's team. We so are excited to see what the future holds for the MegaKyntes! Thank you again, Austin Subaru, for helping us have this amazing opportunity. We would not have been able to have this experience without your love and support! Sincerely, The MegaKyntes 11093

Austin Subaru Keeps Austin Beautiful!

There truly is nothing better than supporting a great cause alongside your best buds and teammates. To celebrate the Earth Day season, the team at Austin Subaru was excited to dedicate a morning to beautifying the Wooten Neighborhood Park in support of Keep Austin Beautiful! For nearly 40 years, this incredible organization has had a mission to bring all Austinites together to get involved in volunteer work that will benefit our community. This includes adorning green spaces, clearing out waterways, and reducing waste, all of which are crucial in preserving Austin’s natural beauty and quality of life. It’s safe to say that the morning of April 9th was full of clear blue skies and positive vibes! The crew at Austin Subaru had such a phenomenal time refreshing the garden beds, planting flowers, revitalizing a local basketball court, and cleaning up trash at Wooten Neighborhood Park. The end result was absolutely stunning and, all in all, taking care of this green space was the perfect way to spend a beautiful Saturday morning. Additionally, it felt great to nourish a community that works hard to support us each day; loving and caring for our planet is so very important!

A Fun Day at the Shenanigans Scramble!

They provide a way for students to learn to serve their community and, in doing so, they help their fellow students in need. The environment created by The Locker gives at-risk students the opportunity to become involved in the leadership of the organization; many students who received aid from The Locker end up being volunteers for The Locker, which is an extremely powerful model for the organization. The Shenanigans Scramble was a super fun and collaborative way to support this great cause! Austin Subaru knows how important it is to support the children within our community. There was absolutely no question in whether or not they were going to contribute to this event and celebrate all of the amazing work done by The Locker!

The work this organization is doing to help children through teamwork, sportsmanship, and respect is outstanding and we are glad to be a part of it". - Gus Hoelscher, Service Director at Austin Subaru

Austin Subaru Helps to Fight Colon Cancer!

In October of 2021, Colon Cancer Coalition was thrilled to host their 2nd annual Caboose Cup in Austin, Texas, at Falconhead Golf Club! Colon cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer, yet nobody really seems to talk about it.

Austin Subaru Supports: Austin Restaurant Weeks!

Let's be honest - having the ability to go to the grocery store is something you likely take for granted. Shopping for food is, for a lot of us, a normal and effortless part of life, so of course we don't tend to give it much thought. Unfortunately, 1 in 7 Central Texans do not have the privilege of making grocery shopping part of their normal routine. Austin Restaurant Weeks is a fundraiser for the Central Texas Food Bank, and they have a mission to defeat the hunger crisis affecting thousands of people in Central Texas! This two-week-long dining attraction features specially-priced meals and drinks at dozens of bars and restaurants throughout the Austin area. This past October, the Food Bank teamed up with their media partners and the community to raise awareness for Austin Restaurant Weeks. Austin Subaru cares deeply for the community, so they were eager to show their support with a $15,000 sponsorship! For every 1$ donated, the Food Bank can create 4 meals for people in need! "We are blessed and see it as our duty to be a blessing to others. The Central Texas Food Bank and Austin Restaurant Weeks give us a chance to help the hungry within our community.

Titan the Loving Three-Legged Dog

If you met Titan, you’d remember Titan. This big and gorgeous boy is goofy, resilient and full of love. Titan came into Austin Pets Alive!’s (APA!) care in the summer of 2021 in need of extensive medical care after suffering abuse. He had every reason to be closed off to people, but instead, put his trust in his new temporary home at our shelter. After a few weeks in our care, it was determined that Titan would need to undergo an amputation of one of his front legs due to irreparable nerve damage. This strong boy quickly began his recovery process and made a name for himself among staff and volunteers for being a kind, gentle, silly and snuggly soul. Near the end of October, Titan found a home to call his own. A home with two doggy friends and a place where he feels safe and knows he is loved and cared for. While his family still calls him Titan, they also gave him another name - Titus. A dog like this buddy deserves two strong names! We had the opportunity to catch up with Titan’s new family to hear how he’s been adjusting. It seems that he quickly got comfortable and “doesn’t really know that he only has three legs” which is made evident by his “shoulder checks” to his large Great Pyrenees playmate during their “ruff” and tumble games. In fact, these boys have so much fun and Titan/Titus doesn’t seem to have an off button so quiet time was instated in the home. After meals and some play, the pups go into their kennels for 30 minutes of quiet time. This extra sense of structure has really helped to ground our loving tripod and given him even more sense of security. Not only did he become fast friends with his dog siblings, Titan has created a super fun game for the whole family! He likes to take his humans’ shoes outside - never chewing on them, rather simply creating a silly game of hide and seek! His humans love how funny and affectionate he is! Dogs like Titan depend on APA!’s “safety net” programs to ensure they receive the care and life they deserve. And APA! depends on the generosity of our community to support our programs so that we can give pets hope! Community partners like Austin Subaru are paramount to the impact we can have and help make surgeries like the one Titan needed, possible. The generous sponsorships that we receive from Austin Subaru allow our programming the opportunity to give underdogs hope. Dogs (and cats) that have no other place to turn, who just need a little extra TLC, come into our shelter to receive the care they need in order to be adopted into loving homes. Titan's story is just one example of the hundreds of pets that are touched by Austin Subaru's generosity. Sometimes, people feel sad for animals that have lost a limb, but these surgeries not only alleviate pain and help heal the past. For Titan, coming into APA!’s care and receiving an amputation then finding his loving home, he’s finally able to start feeling whole again.

Rose's New Ride

Rose has overcome a lot in her young life, including abuse and neglect and years in and out of the foster care system. With the odds stacked against her, Rose found a way forward to independence. She graduated from high school at 16-years-old and has since gone on to accomplish so much with the financial support, mentoring, and health care services of organizations such as Step Onward Foundation. Rose is currently employed full-time and is a sophomore at a local community college. Even with her busy schedule, she continues to volunteer and help others who share similar stories as her own. "I felt like the stars aligned when Todd called," said Chris Hudson, General Manager at Austin Subaru. "When someone tells you a truly miraculous story about a truly miraculous person, and you are able to help, I believe you are obligated to. This is what our company and our team are all about. More than just selling and servicing cars, we have a responsibility to our community and we take that seriously. When we learned that Rose's dream car was a green Subaru Outback, we couldn't wait to make that dream a reality. It's simple, if you have been blessed, you should be a blessing to others. "Our mission is to create a world where young adults and families who are at risk of homelessness reach their full potential as healthy, happy and independent adults," said Todd Young, co-founder and chairman of Step Onward Foundation. "We do this by filling gaps in needed support through our services and programs. Many young adult survivors of homelessness do not have access to reliable transportation which is a significant barrier to overcoming homelessness. This car is an incredible gift to give to a strong and resilient young woman on her journey to independence."

Austin Subaru Pup Love!

I have been debating about getting a new car for the last year but kept having one issue after another during the pandemic. I finally decided the time was right and set up an appointment to get my new Crosstrek when I was walking my little pup and he was attacked by a neighbor dog requiring surgery. I called to cancel but Dean offered to do all the paperwork online then drive down with my new Crosstrek. While that was thoughtful and above and beyond, it was the card and dog toy that he brought for my dog Peanut that really touched me. He took the card around the store and everyone wrote sweet messages of encouragement to Peanut. They even offered to make him a pupaccino if he came and visited! The personal messages meant the world to us! It has been a tough year for everyone so it meant a lot to feel supported during such a big purchase.

The loss of the “Love” of my life!

I purchased my first Subaru in 2017, an Outback 3.5R. Immediately I feel in “Love” with this car. You see, I’m visually impaired and this little beauty has everything I needed to keep me driving safely. This past year has been very hard on all of us, but especially the medical community. I am a critical care nurse and I have had very little time, if any, this past year. My career had a slight turn and I agreed to do a gig in Michigan to administer the Covid vaccine but I needed to be there pretty quickly. This meant getting my little black beauty a quick little check up as she does have 94,000 miles (I love driving her!) After the oil change, my service tech notified me that they found a little transmission fluid and it needed to be diagnosed. I immediately scheduled her for the first available appointment which was one week away. I brought her back and was put into my rental-a Subaru Ascent. The Ascent had everything I needed and also the power I loved with my Outback, but I wanted to keep my little beauty forever! I was informed by Sunday that my baby was going to need a new transmission and some work done on the steering column. I now had to make some decisions. I NEVER planned on getting rid of my little black beauty as she was supposed to go to my grandson, and I absolutely “Love” that car! Besides, Subaru doesn’t make an Outback with a 6 cylinder anymore, so even more reason to keep her. However, I needed to be on the road by Thursday to start my new job on Monday. I had purchased the extended warranty, so everything was covered but it would never be done in three days. I made the decision to trade her in that night. I called to speak to a sales associate. Not only did Aryon stay late to start the process, he came in on his day off to make the sale possible the next day. Long story short, I was put in my new Subaru Ascent Limited by Tuesday afternoon and was well on my way by Wednesday night, earlier than planned. Austin Subaru went above and beyond my expectations and although I literally cried the day I had to leave the “Love” of my life behind, I was overjoyed with my new Ascent! She was just what I needed-safety, speed, style, and seven seats! Just the right amount of space for the grandchildren! Although she will never replace my little black beauty, she is a beautiful new addition to the family😘 Thank you to the entire team at Austin Subaru!!! Forever a Loyal Subaru Owner, Roni H. RN

From an Injured Bird to Ladybird: A Parvo Survivor

“When she first came to us, she seemed so fragile and delicate, like a wounded bird. As she started to recover, she developed this very graceful gait and play style, so she went from an injured bird to a ladybird and the name Birdie just stuck.” Hilana, now renamed Birdie, is a sweet black and white border collie mix who came to Austin Pets Alive! at the beginning of October 2020. When Hilana arrived at APA! she was immediately diagnosed with parvovirus and admitted to our Parvo Puppy ICU where she spent a week being treated. Parvovirus is a highly contagious virus that rapidly infects the dividing cells in a dog’s body, most severely in the intestinal tract. Soon after winning her battle against parvo, Hilana continued treatments for other diseases, such as distemper, in foster care. By mid October, Hilana was well enough to be made available for adoption and quickly found someone who wanted to make her a part of their family. Hilana’s sweet brown eyes in her adoption profile photo made for love at first sight for her adopter, Emily. When she first stepped into her forever home she was, in Emily’s words, “so fragile and delicate, like a wounded bird.” Hilana had difficulty walking and suffered from seizures, but in her pain she still cuddled and loved on her new family. As Hilana began recovery, Emily and her family watched her blossom into a healthy, energized, jubilant puppy. Only 6 weeks after her initial admittance to the shelter, Hilana appears to have fully recovered! She loves to play with her 90 pound dog brother, Beaumont, until they both pass out, and she is quickly learning new tricks like sit, stay, and fetch! We are so happy APA! was able to provide Hilana with the care she needed to overcome her diseases and find her a loving home! In the past, any puppy that entered a shelter in the Central Texas area sick with parvovirus, or even suspected to be, was typically immediately euthanized. Since 2008, APA! has offered an alternative to euthanasia for these vulnerable pups, like Hilana, giving them a second chance at a happy, healthy life. In the past 12 years APA!’s Parvo unit has treated and saved around 5,000 dogs, and in recent years treats about 500 dogs from all over Texas each year. Austin Subaru has been an integral part in our lifesaving work via monetary sponsorship to hosting adoption events and helping to spread the message to give the "underdog" a much-deserved second look. This year has been such an unknown, but Austin Subaru's support has been unwavering. The work APA! does at our Parvo unit would not be possible without gracious business sponsors such as Austin Subaru! They have been a long time supporter of APA!’s mission and the support provided allows our innovative programs the opportunity to save lives like sweet Hilana’s.

Austin Subaru Presents: Words of Hope

Austin Subaru Presents Words of Hope—Words of Hope is Caritas of Austin's largest annual fundraiser. Caritas of Austin was founded on the belief that all people deserve to have their basic needs met. Today Caritas works to provide stable housing, food services, education, job placement, and veteran assistance to the Austin Community. This year the Coronavirus presented several new challenges for Caritas and their clientele. With job loss and health concerns on the rise, the Words of Hope fundraiser was needed now more than ever. Though they could not hold their usual in-person gala, Caritas pivoted and held a successful virtual event that raised over $400,000! Subaru was proud to be the presenting sponsor of this amazing event that is key in preventing and ending homelessness in our community.

Paddle for Parvo Puppies: Quarantine Edition

Austin Pets Alive! created the Parvo Puppy ICU in 2008, and since then has been giving an alternative solution to euthanizing puppies who contract parvovirus. Despite the world being on hold from the Coronavirus, the Austin Pets Alive! Parvo Clinic continues to operate, saving around 500 puppy lives each year. Paddle for Puppies is an annual event that provides financial relief for the Parvo Puppy Program. This year, Austin Subaru, Austin Pets Alive!, and Rowing Dock came together to find a way to continue to support this program while faced with restrictions due to not only Coronavirus, but also Blue Algae in the lake that is toxic to dogs. Paddle for Puppies: Quarantine Edition was a digital campaign aimed at selling limited edition Paddle for Puppies shirts to raise funds for Austin Pets Alive!. Despite the challenges, Austin Subaru was able to raise $20,000 so that Austin Pets Alive! can continue to give puppies affected by parvovirus a chance at life.

Jennie Crow (pictured on the far left) received a blanket last year while her son was in the hospital post-transplant for leukemia. Her son is doing great now, but the gesture meant so much to them that she came back this year to help pass them out to current patients.
