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 Adoptaclassroom.org 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 International Subaru of Merrillville 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.

Thank you, Subaru!  –  Sue W

On Wednesday, July 25th I was honored to be part of the team at Franciscan Health in Crown Point, IN to meet the International Subaru of Merrillville and Chicago-based Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) Representatives. Subaru in partnership with LLS graciously donated 80 blankets to our cancer patients through the "Loves To Care" initiative. The Representatives were able to meet and provide this “gift” to several of our patients during their visit. The patients were grateful to receive these blankets and appreciated the warm gesture. I have been an Oncology Nurse for several years and I was touched to see the interaction between the Representatives from Subaru and LLS with our patients. It was a big surprise to our patients to have someone they didn’t know take the time to sit and talk with them and give them this “gift”. This caring gesture goes a long way to those fighting cancer and their loved ones. It was very impactful to all of us involved and we’ll continue to give this gift to our patients. I would like to give a heartwarming thank you to Subaru and LLS for choosing Franciscan Health to be part of the “Loves to Care” initiative to spread hope, love and warmth. Thank you.

A Moving Experience  –  Sue W

The fact that Subaru “Loves to Care” by giving back to the community was evident the other day when they arrived, along with a representative from the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, with box after box of blankets to give to our oncology (cancer) patients. The Subaru and Leukemia & Lymphoma representatives presented the warm blankets to the patients and took time to talk with each patient and wish them well. The patients were overwhelmed with joy, smiles on their faces, hope in their eyes as they realized that complete strangers were willing to take the time to visit them, bring them gifts and wish them well on their difficult journey. The generous donation, genuine kindness and thoughtfulness of the representatives brought tears to our eyes. We are so grateful to Subaru “Loves to Care” for supporting their local community through this program and making a difference in partnership with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

A Warming Gesture for Cancer Patients  –  Sue W

As part of a public service campaign in partnership with the Chicago-based Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, International Subaru of Merrillville representatives Chris Smith, sales manager, and Nick Ferguson donated 80 blankets, “to spread hope, love and warmth,” for cancer patients at Franciscan Health-Crown Point. Subaru dealers, through the Subaru, Loves To Care project, are donating 40,000 blankets nationwide. Rick Peltier, local executive director of the Franciscan Health Foundation, expressed gratitude for the donation. “It is amazing what Subaru is doing to give back to the community in such a heartwarming way. To help comfort patients, who are going through a lot of anxiety in their lives, says a lot about the organization.”

International Subaru / Methodist Hospital  –  Kate K

It was great to be a part of this delivery as an LLS employee. International Subaru of Merrillville has chosen Methodist Hospital multiple times as their hospital of choice with regard to the Subaru Loves to Care program. It was great to meet the administrators at Methodist and the wonderful employees at International Subaru.

Indiana Literacy  –  Imran M

When the staff at International Subaru of Merrillville were asked in August of 2014 who they wanted to support as a local charity for the Subaru Share the Love Event, the unanimous decision from all employees was the Indiana Literacy Association. This mostly volunteer organization has tasked itself with promoting literacy of adults across the state by providing one on one tutoring in reading and writing, basic computer literacy skills, and even family literacy programs. International is proud to be able to support such a great cause with a little over $5,000 that was raised during the Share Love Event in 2014 for the Indiana Literacy Association.
