The 2018 Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment Award

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.

So, every day, we strive to ensure our love is felt not just by our customers, but by all in our community. We do this because we feel it is the right thing to do.

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.

Love Promise Stories from Rivertown Subaru

Subaru Delivers Warmth and Hope to Cancer Patients  –  Audrey S

Subaru Delivers Warmth and Hope to Cancer Patients

On June 26, 2018 The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and Rivertown Subaru partnered together to deliver blankets and messages of hope to cancer patients at the John B Amos Cancer Center. Representatives from Subaru shared that several of their team members have had personal experiences with cancer in their families, and getting involved through the Subaru Loves to Care Program is very meaningful to them. They were elated to partner with LLS to help bring hope and warmth to cancer patients, as their family members have been treated at the John B Amos Cancer Center. Rivertown Subaru’s General Manger, Mr. Paxton Nash, shared that his mother, Ms. Sherry, was treated for a cancer diagnosis. Sonya Pettis from Subaru also shared that she lost her mother to cancer last year. Giving back is very important to Rivertown Subaru and they are grateful for the love and support they receive in return from the Columbus, Georgia community. The John B Amos Cancer Center in Columbus, Georgia enjoyed having the opportunity to participate in the Subaru Loves to Care program and spread warmth and joy to blood cancer patients and looks forward to participating again next year.

Subaru Loves To Care For Cancer Patients

Rivertown Subaru’s Steven Henderson and Marcus Thaxton accompanied local LLS staff to the John B. Amos Cancer Center in Columbus, GA as a part of Subaru Cares. We delivered 100 blankets and care-kits to the cancer center, and were joined there by Nancy Price, Manager of Clinical Research, and Connie Johnson, Case Manager Associate. The Rivertown Subaru team also remarked that the manager of Rivertown Subaru, Paxton Nash, was completely committed to supporting patients at the John B. Amos Cancer Center because his mother had been treated for cancer there. We are so grateful for the opportunity to give back to our community through Subaru.

"Where Love Meets Hope"  –  Carole I

We have been devastated, since last August, when we found out a member of our family had Leukemia, but, equally as sadden to learn there is no organization that offers help to a 55-yr-old man with his type of cancer. . . Then, he received a beautiful blanket, with a lovely note of compassion; and it meant so much to all of us, but especially Raymond. With tears rolling down his cheeks, he caressed that blanket, and said, "Subaru cares about me." your generosity will always be remembered. Carole B Ingram, Forsyth, GA

3rd Grade Heros  –  Lisa N

3rd Grade Heros

On 05/17/16 Rivertown Subaru donated several plants to East Smiths Station Elementary. These plants are special, because they are the natural habitat for Monarch butterflies. Specifically, we met with two 3rd grade classes taught by Mrs. Callie Sparks and Mrs. Brandy Montroy. The plants were delivered and the students got to learn about each plant, as well as touch them and ask questions. Then rain moved in. So, we took the lesson inside the classroom. From there, we talked about the Monarch Butterflies and how they play an important role in pollination. How these butterflies are in danger due to their habitats becoming more sparse. We spoke about how each student can play a role in helping the butterflies and, in turn, Earth itself.The children were given Milkweed seeds to plant at home. They also received a Monarch butterfly Coloring page. They learned how to be a Butterfly Hero! East Smiths Station Elementary welcomed the new plants with enthusiasm. The teachers and students were eager to help. The event was so much fun, as well as educational. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this event.

Music fills the air at Rivertown Subaru

On March 18, 2016 Rivertown Subaru hosted a Share The Love event for the Youth Orchestra of Greater Columbus. Several members of the area community were invited to listen to the youth orchestra play live music, eat finger foods, and win door prizes. A check of over $4,000.00 was donated by Rivertown Subaru and Subaru of America to the organization. The Youth Orchestra Of Greater Columbus has been nurturing young musicians for 22 years, and serve over 120 children ages 8-18, regardless of their financial situations. Mr. Bruce Howard, the YOGC Board president, stated "It was a big moment for our organization.What truly made the evening special was that YOGC was asked to perform at the event. What an honor for the young people to have the opportunity to share their music. The gift helps make it possible for the YOGC to carry forward serving the young musicians in the Chattahoochee Valley. Thank you for the investment in our students, our community and our developing musicians. Your gift has made a tremendous impact in the lives of the young people that YOGC serves." We can definitely say that it was Rivertown Subaru's honor and pleasure to have had the orchestra perform for us, and we thank the community for their support.

A total of 100 books were donated to Allen Elementary School for grades K-3. This school was chosen due to a large majority of the students being classified as economically disadvantaged. The event started with the community of Columbus,Ga. When customers test drove a vehicle, had their vehicle repaired, or purchased a part, customers were able to sign their name to a label that went inside each book donated to the school. Thank you to all who participated in this event. It was a great success.
