What is the Subaru Love Promise?

Subaru and our retailers believe in making the world a better place and the Subaru Love Promise is our vision of respecting all people. This is our commitment to show love and respect to our customers and to work to make a positive impact in the world.

The Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment

We believe in being a positive force in something bigger. And it all starts right here in our community. Not just by our donations, but by our actions.

That's why we stay true to our Love Promise Community Commitment by partnering with a wide variety of community nonprofits and charities.

Every year, we join hands with our owners in the "Share the Love" event, giving back to our community-a community that's given so much to us.

We are proud to participate in the Love Promise Community Commitment. We're grateful, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve and support the causes and passions that are closest to our hearts, right here in our neighborhood.

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

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 Sewell Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits. We are grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve it as well.

Love Promise Stories from Sewell Subaru

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

Sewell Subaru Loves Pets and SPCA of Texas  –  Laura M

The SPCA of Texas is so thankful for the continued partnership with Sewell Subaru during the annual Subaru Loves Pets adoption events. Our mission is to provide every animal exceptional care and a loving home, and Sewell Subaru help us achieve that. At the most recent event, one special underdog named McLovin found his forever home! McLovin is an owner surrender. As a pitbull terrier mix, his breed often faces restrictions for many renters, limiting his potential adoption options. Additionally, he tested positive for heartworms. The SPCA of Texas provided the heartworm treatment for him, as well as the time, space and TLC for him to recover. We are happy to report that McLovin (now known as Bear) is healthy and thriving with his new family and they are completely smitten with this sweet boy. He is a fast and eager learner and is already 100% potty trained! Bear has also learned several commands since arriving in his new home. In the photo provided, you can see that Bear went as a Dallas Maverick for Halloween and was a huge hit! Thank you again, Sewell Subaru. We appreciate your hard work and compassionate partnership in finding loving homes for so many animals in need!

Supporting Harry C. Withers Elementary  –  Ashley R

Thank you to Sewell Subaru for their kind words of encouragement to our teachers and staff at Harry C. Withers Elementary in Dallas, Texas. Our teachers are patient, active and engaged but the continued weight of COVID safety protocols and the ever- evolving climate has added stress to their educational commitment. Sewell Subaru and their customers contributed positivity in our hallways to show support for our staff by delivering a yellow school bus with optimistic notes. Our PreK- 5th grade students thank you for thinking of us and for boosting our teachers to keep turning the dial, one student at a time!

Sewell Subaru Supports the SPCA of Texas  –  Travis H

We couldn’t be more thankful to Sewell Subaru for their continued support of the SPCA of Texas and our mission to find loving homes for the countless animals in our care. We were honored to be part of the Subaru Loves Pets campaign – and we’re happy to say that dozens of animals found new and loving homes throughout the duration of the campaign! Which gives us the opportunity to make space for other animals in need of a loving home. So thank you for supporting pet adoptions and making it possible for homeless pets to find loving homes across North Texas!

Sewell Subaru Supports Vogel Alcove  –  Greg B

Vogel Alcove’s mission is to help young children and families overcome the lasting and traumatic effects of homelessness. Our two-generational programming focuses on both the child and the parent as we work to break the cycle of poverty for the homeless children and families in our care. Our comprehensive services rewire brains, repair hearts, and restore families. One of our focus areas is health and wellness. Quality sleep is a critical component for brain development in young children, and it helps improve memory, reduces anxiety, increases energy, and boosts the immune system. It is often a challenge for children affected by homelessness to get quality rest each night due to the often noisy and unpredictable environments where they sleep. Sewell Subaru’s generous gift of blankets will help create a more comfortable and cozy experience at naptime during the day and bedtime at night for the children of Vogel Alcove. We are grateful for Sewell Subaru!

Sewell Subaru helps local gain a Guide Dog  –  Frank W

Zachary “Zack” Thibodeau was 8 years old when he first started going blind. Living with the constant stress of uncertainty about his future became his new normal. His mother, whom he calls his greatest advocate, contacted Guide Dogs for the Blind (GDB) to see how we could help. Zack was too young for a guide dog, but the perfect age for our K9 Buddy program, which matches children and young adults with special dogs to be their companions. Once the folks at Sewell Subaru found out - they helped raise the cost to transport Natura to Zach! His K9 Buddy Natura changed his world. “From the moment I met her, she calmed my fears, helped me build my confidence and made me realize that I wanted a guide dog of my own,” says Zack. A few years later, Zack attended Camp GDB, a weeklong summer camp at Guide Dogs for the Blind that gives teens ages 14 to 17 the opportunity to meet other teens from across the country who are helps are blind or visually impaired. In addition to participating in fun activities like bicycling, hiking, and kayaking, teens explore the companionship, independence, and responsibility of having a guide dog. Zack’s summers at Camp GDB further solidified his goal to get a guide dog. In late 2019, Zack’s dream came true when he was paired with Namath, a black Labrador Retriever. Now age 18, Zack and Namath have been a guide dog team for a year. Fast forward to the fall of 2021, Zach is now enrolled in Dartmouth and ready to attend in stride with Namath by his side guiding the way. All of this started with the generous folks at Sewell Subaru helping with the transportation of his buddy dog - Natura.

Unmatched Service at Sewell Subaru  –  Matt A

Just wanted to give a big shout out to Brad with Sewell Subaru. As my dad was on his way to pick up my mom from work last night, he got a really bad flat tire due to hitting a curb from a construction area. Luckily, he was only a few miles from Sewell Subaru and our plan was for him to drop off the car in the parking lot and me pick him up from the dealership. Luckily Brad was there, took great care of my dad, and was even able to grab him a loaner car! This was at 9:30 PM last night! Always great service with Sewell Subaru and this was greatly appreciated as always!

Sewell Subaru Supports the SPCA of Texas  –  Victoria A

The SPCA of Texas is extremely grateful for the support in helping homeless pets’ dreams come true this holiday season from Sewell Subaru as part of their Share the Love Program. With their help, we were able to find over 31 pets homes, just in time for the holidays. Sewell Subaru’s partnership allowed us to do everything necessary to prepare these pets for adoption, including spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchips and all the other medical they needed to get them healthy, happy and ready for a new home. The SPCA of Texas works to rescue, heal and find homes for thousands of animals each year, and we could not this work without the help of companies like Sewell Subaru. We are so appreciative to be one of the non-profits that they support, and their charity makes a huge difference in the lives of animals and people in our community.

Sewell Subaru Loves North Texas Pets  –  Coleen B

The SPCA of Texas is grateful to partner with Sewell Subaru during the annual Subaru Loves Pets adoptions event. Our mission is to provide every animal exceptional care and a loving home. During the weekend event, with Sewell Subaru’s help, we received funding to provide veterinary care to adoptable animals and 27 pets found new, loving homes! Because of the pandemic, the event was virtual, but Sewel Subaru stepped up to help publicize pets needing homes. One special pet who found his home during the weekend event was Bruno, a six-year-old pit bull mix. He was at the SPCA of Texas for months without hardly any interest, primarily due to his age and breed. But the Subaru Loves Pets adoption event hosted with Sewell Subaru turned out to be his lucky break. He went home on a Saturday afternoon and his family adores him! We are so happy. Sewell Subaru exemplifies the motto “more than a car company;” they truly care about the pets and families in our community. Thank you, Sewell!

Sewell Subaru Supports Vogel Alcove  –  Greg B

Vogel Alcove’s mission is to help young children and families overcome the lasting and traumatic effects of homelessness. Our comprehensive programs and services address the multitudes of needs facing our families, and our success depends on the support of our community. Sewell Subaru recently donated 80 blankets to help keep our children warm and comfortable during the winter season. Research overwhelming shows quality sleep is a critical component for brain development in young children, and it helps improve memory, reduces anxiety, increases energy, and boosts the immune system for both children and adults. It is often a challenge for our children to get quality sleep each night due to the often noisy and unpredictable environments in which they live. Sewell Subaru’s generous gift will help make naptime during the day, and bedtime at night, a much more comfortable and cozy experience for the children of Vogel Alcove. We are grateful for Sewell Subaru! Thank you for taking the initiative to support and partner with local charities in North Texas.

Memorable Experience at Sewell Subaru  –  Laura D

I wanted to quickly reach out say how much my husband Dennis and I enjoyed our experience purchasing our new Subaru Outback from Clay last week. Working with him was a total pleasure and we found him to be trustworthy, transparent, knowledgeable and all-around fantastic to talk to. My parents purchased a Subaru from Sewell and JD three years ago and had a positive experience, and I had submitted my credit information online in advance, so my expectations were that our car-buying experience would be painless, but it’s always a surprise to have high expectations exceeded! Kudos to Clay and your finance manager who helped us to have such a pleasant and memorable experience.

Unparalleled Customer Care  –  Elizabeth M

Words cannot appropriately express my thanks for your help in repairing my car. Normally, for an act such as this, cookies would be in order. Really good cookies. However, in the time of COVID, I think for everyone's safety, words will have to do. My Outback is not much to look at anymore. After thirteen years of pool chlorine, dogs, a growing boy, Canadian snow, Texas heat, and multiple school parking lots, it's really showing some age. However, all of those little dings in the hood, scratches in the paint, and discolorations of leather are part of its life story. It's been a good life so far, and I'm hoping for many more years to come. Nowhere else can I find a car that meets my desire for a little speed, a lot of control, and necessary utility. Even with those signs of age, Sewell Subaru service representatives (including Charlie) have always treated me and my Outback with respect and care. I know when I go into Sewell, I will receive an honest answer, a fair assessment of what needs to happen, and consideration for our budget. Whereas I have had to worry in the past about other Subaru dealerships' dealings, I have not worried once when I have had to bring my car in to Sewell's service department. So, again, thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Your generosity and customer care are unparalleled, and it makes me want to stay a Subaru driver and a Sewell customer.

Technology  –  elizabeth f

The car I left to purchase my Impreza was 14 years old. So, little to no technology. Sewell provided a private appointment with Trevor Rice to orient us to the new car. He was: knowledgeable, personable and efficient. Thanks you !! Beth Farren

Sewell Subaru Supports LLS of North Texas  –  Renita S

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of North Texas had the amazing pleasure to partner together with Sewell Subaru on June 28 for their Subaru Loves to Care Program. As one of 8 neighborhood retailers, Sewell delivered 80 blankets to Parkland Memorial Hospital, while also conveying hope, warmth, and uplifting words of encouragement to those currently being treated with and battling for their lives. Each blanket came along with a personal note of hope written by the customers and staff of Sewell that the patients absolutely loved reading. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of North Texas is beyond appreciative for the kindness and commitment of Sewell Subaru not only for our mission but also to those in our local community. Seeing the joy on patients’ faces as the blankets were personally delivered was extremely rewarding and heartwarming. We are honored to collaborate with an organization that offers back to the absolute most meriting individuals and carries light to the darkness of a cancer diagnosis.

Puppies and Subarus. What Could be Better?  –  Frank W

Again this past holiday season, Sewell Subaru stepped up and Shared the Love with their continued support of Guide Dogs for the Blind - Dallas Puppy Raisers club. During the event last December and January, our raisers brought their puppies-in-training to the dealership where we greeted (and rubbed noses with) customers who were shopping for a new vehicle. In addition to the invaluable socialization and enrichment opportunities this provides for the puppies, the money raised makes it possible for us to provide transportation and support for the dogs as they continue their journey towards becoming a guide dog and changing a life. Sewell Subaru truly makes our community – and the world – a better place with their love and commitment. The Dallas puppies love Sewell Subaru!

Sewell Subaru Supports The Birthday Party Project  –  Paige C

We are so grateful for the ways Subaru gives so generously through their Share the Love Program! With the support of the Sewell Subaru team, The Birthday Party Project is able to continue celebrating birthdays for children experiencing homelessness in Dallas and around the country! The gifts and party supplies collected will directly impact the thousands of kids and families we celebrate with each month. Our parties are more than a celebration, they are a loud exclamation point that children matter. Our parties give homeless families and volunteers a chance to connect through celebration, and we are thankful that Subaru once the power of building a JOYful community.

Once Again Sewell Delivers in Charitable Donations  –  Chris F

The Humane Society of Dallas has a lot to be thankful for this holiday season as Sewell Subaru has, once again, delivered in generous donations to support our shelter. As the only no-kill shelter in the city of Dallas, the Humane Society of Dallas, a non-profit organization, relies heavily on the support and charitable contributions of Sewell Subaru's Loves Pets program. Their support allows us to elevate our continued care and attention for all our animals here. This not only benefits our animals directly but in providing for our animals, it helps to engage them in socialization exercises and training, which is critical to their new forever homes. The Humane Society of Dallas, it is our continuous goal to strive toward a better life for all animals in our community and with Sewell Subaru's Loves Pets program, we are able to continue to meet that goal. A heartfelt thanks from all of us here: staff, volunteers, board members, and animals for their continued support and generosity.

Sewell Subaru Partners with KERA  –  Paula A

KERA is honored to work with Sewell and cannot express how much the partnership means to us. The $150,000 raised through the Sewell Subaru Raffle is invaluable in helping KERA achieve its mission to educate, engage, inspire, inform, and entertain our North Texas audiences. Warmest thanks once again for making this possible.

A Puppy's Love for Sewell Subaru  –  Frank W

A big heartfelt thank you and plenty of warm puppy nuzzles go out to Sewell Subaru for their continued support of Guide Dogs for the Blind and the Dallas Puppy Raisers as one of the non-profit organizations in their Share the Love Program. Because of their overwhelming generosity and gracious hospitality during this last holiday season, our puppy raisers were able to bring their puppies to the dealership throughout the campaign to meet and greet customers and have their photos taken with Santa Claus. This not only helps with socialization and enrichment for these future guide dogs, but our organization was also the recipient of a generous donation from Sewell Subaru which provides transportation and support services for our guide dog puppies in training. The puppies, their raisers, and the people who will eventually require the services of a guide dog thank you. It is companies like Sewell Subaru that truly make a difference in our local community. And the impact of that support will be felt around the world.

Lone Star Guide Dog Raisers  –  Beth A

Guide Dogs for the Blind and Lone Star Guide Dog Raisers are grateful for the continued support from Sewell Subaru. Sewell Subaru and the Share the Love program have made it possible to raise future guide dogs in Texas. In 2010, with Sewell’s help, we brought six Labrador puppies to Dallas. With Sewell’s continued support, there are currently over 150 guide dog puppies in training in Texas. Sewell and Subaru have been very supportive and have given us the opportunity to provide the necessary transportation and support that our puppies and raisers need. Our puppies in training frequently visit the Sewell Subaru store for socialization experiences. We are truly overwhelmed by the kindness, friendship and professionalism of the Sewell organization, Eric Underall and every employee who continually “Share theLove”. Thank You! Beth Adams

We look forward to our partnership with Sewell continuing to grow in years to come. Thank you, AGAIN. Janet Willson Counselor
