Subaru Loves to Care
Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy.
Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.
It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.
In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.
We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.
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.
Subaru Concord is delighted to support R Brown McAllister STEM Elementary School through multiple facets of the Love Promise initiative created by Subaru of America. Beginning in Fall 2015, the Subaru Concord team delivered books from Subaru Loves Learning in support of the STEM program. The books were initially delivered to the school system's district office and the partnership was born. In the Spring of 2016, the delivery of a butterfly habitat for the school's garden was completed. The habitat, also pictured in Fall 2016, is thriving in the school's garden. Fall of 2016 brought a second delivery of science-themed books. We are looking forward to future activities in support of R. Brown McAllister STEM Elementary!
Subaru Concord enthusiastically jumped on the opportunity to participate in Subaru Loves Pets activities in 2016. We reached out to a new community partner, Cabarrus County Animal Shelter, as our beneficiary of puppy adoption kits, thoughtfully put together by Subaru of America, and pet food donations from our team members and customers. In addition to the pet food drive and adoption kits, we attended Dogs Day Out for the fourth consecutive year and invited the Shelter to share our space and highlight adoptable pets. The wind howled the day of the event, which is an annual fundraiser produced by Concord Parks and Recreation. In spite of unusually cold weather and tent-damaging winds, everyone persevered to raise funds and collect donations. Our favorite activity during this event is the pet costume competition. Several Subaru owners stopped by with their costumed canines to say hello and tell us how much they and their pets love their Subarus!
Subaru Concord visited the Levine Cancer Center in Concord to deliver warm blankets and messages of hope to members of our community undergoing chemotherapy. The blankets and messages are a part of the Subaru Loves to Care activation. Visitors to our facility were encouraged to write messages of support and hope to those fighting cancer. One member of our team is a cancer survivor and was overjoyed to participate in delivering the blankets directly to those receiving treatment. We are grateful to Subaru of America for creating this nationwide event and providing us with the opportunity to connect with and positively impact the lives of everyone involved.
This year's Subaru Loves to Care initiative allowed us to provide warmth, through blanket donations, along with messages of hope to members of our community who are undergoing cancer treatments at our local hospital.Sixty warm blankets were delivered on July 25, 2016 to the Rejuvenation Center that is part of Northeast Medical Center's Levine Cancer Institute in Concord. Many handwritten messages of hope were delivered at the same time. These messages were written by our staff, our customers, vendors and other visitors throughout the month of June.We are pleased that Brenda Porter, part of our Subaru Concord family and a cancer survivor, was able to participate in the blanket delivery and offer warmth, caring and her very own personal message of hope to the patients that were in the infusion center the day of our delivery.We would like to thank Levine Cancer Institute-Concord for allowing us to visit and personally make the donations. We also wish to thank Cathy Bloomberg of the North Carolina Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for coordinating the deliveries and providing the necessary support and connections to successfully complete the deliveries.
This year marks the third year that Subaru Concord has been a sponsor of Dogs Day Out. The weather was perfect for the contests, including our favorite: the costume contest! We are pleased to support our community through such a fun event. Ace, Service Dog, from Swiftdogz had the best seat in the house for the contests! Many participants went home with a new flying disc to play with. Congratulations to all of the contest winners.
Subaru Concord donated 100 books to Cabarrus County Schools. Customers and employees participated in the Subaru Loves Learning book drive during the month of August. The book donation event was designed to provide outstanding, prize-winning books to schools with the goal of engaging young learners in the world of science and inspire them to want to learn more. The books are will supplement existing curriculum by supporting K-12 science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education, while also helping to build reading and literacy skills.

Subaru Concord hosted a bloodmobile from the American Red Cross on Monday, August 24, 2015 as part of an effort by Subaru of America and Subaru dealers nationwide. 24 donors successfully provided a life-saving donation and also had the opportunity to join the National Marrow Donor Registry and learn about the importance of becoming an organ donor. In addition to the Red Cross, Be The Match and Lifeshare of the Carolinas participated in the event and provided materials for our guests. Pictured is our first donor of the day, Chuck Ende, and the Red Cross volunteer. Donors were offered a discount of 50% off of their next oil and filter change as a thank you for participating.
Join us in our Subaru Loves Learning initiative during the month of August! We are partnering with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in donating science books to Cabarrus County Schools. All of the books that will be donated have been recognized by AAAS as some of the best science books in their field. Contact us to learn more information.
We would like to thank our customers for participating in our E Waste Recycling event during the month of April. With your help, we were able to prevent 2,090 lbs of carbon emissions from polluting the atmosphere. This is equivalent to saving 81 trees, 356 gallons of gasoline, 3,030 plastic bottles, and 13,936 aluminum cans. Thank you for helping strengthen the Subaru Love Promise!
Cabarrus Meals on Wheels will use the Share the Love Donation to pay for nutritious meals for home bound seniors who are unable to pay for their own meals. These are clients that live on a fixed income of $800 or less per month. The funds will provide 2,300 meals to our clients. We are extremely grateful for the partnership with Subaru. "ÂShare the Love"Â is a great program that allows our local community members to give to local agencies in a unique way. -Kimberly Strong, Executive Director
Throughout the month of April, we are hosting an E-Waste Recycling Event in our store to collect unwanted electronics.

We will accept: LCD Monitors, Cell Phones, Laptops, Tablets, CRTs up to 40", Video Games/Consoles, Fax Machines, DVD/VCR Players, Printers, Computer Peripherals, Switches/Routers, Cords and Wires.
Since 2008 we have supported Classroom Central, a free store for teachers located in Charlotte, NC. Teachers spend an average of $500 out of their own pocket every year to provide supplies to their students and to create an atmosphere conducive to learning. Classroom Central receives donations from the community so that teachers in need can go shopping for the items they need. From book drives and competing to collect the most schools supplies during the annual "School Tools" collection, to becoming the only drop off location in Cabarru's County for community donations, we stand behind the idea of making a difference and equipping at-risk students with the proper tools to help them complete their education and break the cycle of poverty.
Subaru's "Share the Love" event has helped raise money for charities both locally and nationally. Wilson from WCCB Charlotte was at Subaru Concord where Cabarrus Meals on Wheels was chosen as our local charity. Concord's Mayor Scott Padgett even joined Wilson holding a can of Beenie Weenie's. Wilson can get people to do some of the strangest things. Mayor Padgett talked with Wilson about the program, local charities and the importance of volunteering with local charities. See the link below for a recap of the Rising Show kicking off Share the Love and our food drive to support CMOW. http://www.wccbcharlotte.com/rising/wilsons-world/Sharing-the-Love-with-Wilson-and-Subaru-Concord-284507241.html
