Giving comfort and warmth
to those experiencing homelessness.

Imagine worrying about staying warm as the nights grow colder. For more than 500,000 Americans experiencing homelessness, this is the reality they face every night. Through our Love Promise, which is a commitment to supporting our communities, Subaru and our retailers are taking action by partnering with local homeless shelters to personally deliver water-resistant blankets and warm socks to help those in need.

 

Last November, as part of Subaru Loves to Help, Subaru and our retailer provided 50,000 warm blankets to homeless shelters across the country. This year, we are doing it again to bring our total donation to 100,000 blankets to help those experiencing homelessness. In addition to more blankets, we will also be donating 50,000 pairs of socks. Showing warmth and compassion for those who find themselves without a roof over their heads this season is just one of the ways we are doing even more to make a difference.

 

In addition to blankets and socks, shelters are often in need of other items such as sneakers, boots, pants, coats, hats, and gloves. Contact your local shelter to find out what is needed in your community and how you can help.

 

This year, Subaru and its retailers will have donated a total of 100,000 blankets and 50,000 pairs of socks to homeless shelters nationwide.

Meals on Wheels America

Meals on Wheels operates in virtually every community in America through a network of more than 5,000 independently run local programs. Each program's services and operations are committed to supporting their senior neighbors to live healthier and more nourished lives in their own homes.

 

Giving back has always been part of the Subaru culture, and so to mark its 50th year in the U.S., Subaru of America donated 50 specially wrapped 2018 Outback vehicles to Meals on Wheels programs across the country for the delivery of meals to seniors in need.

Over the past ten years of annual Share the Love® Events, and during our month-long Subaru Loves to Help initiative in June 2015, Subaru and our retailers have helped Meals on Wheels America deliver nearly two million meals to homebound seniors.

American Red Cross – Ready Platinum Program

The Subaru commitment to the Ready 365 Platinum Program enables the Red Cross to activate immediately and provide lifesaving aid across the United States, regardless of cost. In addition to providing shelter, food and care when disasters strike, the investment Subaru has made supports activities in advance of disasters, including training volunteers, securing shelter locations, stocking warehouses with relief supplies and maintaining disaster-relief vehicles.

Subaru of America provides ongoing support to the American Red Cross which this year alone has allowed the organization to serve more than 1,539,139 meals and snacks to people affected by disasters, launched more than 15 large-scale relief operations across the country and abroad and opened 365 new shelters.

Big Brothers Big Sisters

Big Brothers Big Sisters is the nation's largest donor- and volunteer-supported mentoring network, making meaningful, monitored matches to provide children facing adversity with one-to-one mentoring that changes their lives for the better, forever.

As a 2010 Subaru Share the Love Event partner, Big Brothers Big Sisters received $676,754 in donations. These funds helped Big Brothers Big Sisters improve the lives of the nearly 600,000 children, guardians, and volunteers they serve annually.

Boys and Girls Club

Boys and Girls Club of America strives to help all young people, especially those who need support most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens by providing safe places during out-of-school time.

Subaru supported Boys and Girls Clubs during the 2008–2009 Share the Love Event and helped raise the capacity of the clubs to serve more kids more often.

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit whose mission is to help families break the cycle of poverty and build long-term financial security.

A three-time Subaru Share the Love Event partner, Habitat for Humanity received more than $3.1 million from 2008 to 2010. This funding supported Habitat for Humanity’s Global Impact Fund, strengthening families and communities through house construction, rehabilitation, and preservation.

USO

The USO lifts the spirits of America's troops and military families, and is the only private nonprofit organization that serves the men and women in the U.S. military and their families throughout their service.

As a 2012 Subaru Share the Love partner, USO received over $670,000 in donations, which supported programming for those who need the USO most — military families and families of the fallen, wounded, or injured.
