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 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. 

Environment

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.

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 277,600 award-winning science books.  In addition, through our partnerships with Staples and Adoptaclassroom.org we supported teachers and students with donations of S400,000 in gift cards and school supplies. 

Community

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. 

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.

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 Heritage Subaru Owings Mills dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

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.

Love Promise Stories from Heritage Subaru Owings Mills

Subaru and Heritage Subaru Owings Mills 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

Heritage Subaru serving the Hope Lodge residents  –  Shawn D

Greg Jacobson and Shawn Davie had the pleasure of serving the residents of Hope Lodge in Baltimore. For anyone who does not know, the Hope Lodge provides lodging for patients who are receiving cancer treatment at any of the cancer facilities in Baltimore. They also provide transportation to and from the cancer facilities as well. We had a great time serving some great food and hearing some of the stories of how cancer has affected their lives and how they are fighting this terrible disease. The mood was very positive as the patients we encouraged one another as they enjoyed the food. This is a great charity in the city of Baltimore and helps people in their time of need. I would encourage everyone to take a look and consider helping out as the Hope Lodge is making a difference right here in our city.


Heritage Subaru Owings Mills Hope Lodge Dinner  –  Vivienne S

Last September, the thoughtful employees of Heritage Subaru of Owings Mills hosted a lovely Italian dinner to the guests at the American Cancer Society’s Baltimore Hope Lodge – a free home-away-from-home for cancer patients who travel from out of town to Baltimore for cancer treatment. Heritage Subaru staff spent the evening serving dinner to patients and caregivers at the lodge and joined them in the dining room to share food, fellowship and good conversation. The dinner was one of 12 wonderful monthly dinners hosted by members of MileOne Autogroup at Baltimore Hope Lodge during 2019. This fabulous partnership with the American Cancer Society will continue through 2020 and helps support patients through their treatment journey. The lodge has a kitchen so that guests can prepare their own meals, however when community groups, such as Heritage Subaru of Owings Mills, host dinner, their gesture alleviates the work of meal preparation and offers welcome companionship for the lodge’s residents, most of whom stay for many weeks or even months during extensive cancer treatment. Baltimore Hope Lodge is one of 32 American Cancer Society Hope Lodges across the country. Photo, serving food: Robert Lee (dark hair), General Manager; Shawn Davie, General Manager.

Owner and Dealer Loyalty goes a long way  –  Greg J

On October 1, 2018, a woman was in “very serious” condition after being shot during a road-rage incident on the Beltway, according to Baltimore County police. The incident took place just after noon on Sunday, in the inner loop of Interstate 695 near the Harford Road exit. Police say the drivers of two separate vehicles — a white van and a dark-colored Nissan — were arguing, when a third vehicle, a 2018 Subaru Outback, attempted to pass them. Police said that either a passenger or driver of the Nissan then fired a single shot in the direction of the Subaru, which hit the car’s driver, a 58-year-old woman. The 2018 Outback then pulled over, and a passenger in her car called 911 and provided details to police. The woman was treated at the scene and taken to the hospital. She was in very serious condition with possible life-threatening injuries, according to police. That following Tuesday, Sales Manager Greg Jacobson was notified by the victims spouse about the incident and what he can do to repair and clean the Outback. Customer purchased the Outback from Heritage Subaru just months ago and was advised to bring it in to see what we can do. General Manager Shawn Davie hears about the story and immediately stepped in to help, providing the customers with a new 2019 Outback and trade in the 2018 Outback. After a week in the hospital customer is now home and was surprised about a new Outback in her driveway. Owner and dealer loyalty goes a long way.
