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.

100% Adoption Rate  –  Stefanie M

I wanted to thank you for inviting Northeast Ohio SPCA to Subaru's adoption event this weekend. I am so thrilled that all 4 pups we brought with us found their new homes. 100% adoption, woohoo!! It means so much to us to have partners in the community that are as committed as we are to finding homeless pets the loving forever homes they deserve. If you are ever having an adoption event again or, just want to see a furry little face, please let me know. We'd be happy to come out and see you. Thank you again. You and the Subaru team are doing amazing work!


Rid-All Loves Ganley Subaru  –  Tim L

Hi, my name is Tim Lewis, and I am an Urban Farmer from Cleveland, OH, who had the opportunity to work on the Subaru Loves the Earth campaign back in 2019. Being apart of the movement opened up doors of opportunity to show kids the importance of living a sustainable lifestyle and how cool it could be. I was able to take kids that had never left their neighborhood throughout Ohio & show them the difference between Urban Farming & Rural Farming & how they both play a part in the bigger picture of sustainability and agriculture while driving a 2019 Subaru Forester provided By the dealership. The experience changed my life & gave me a platform & opportunity to open the kid's eyes up & expand their views on sustainability and how Cool Subaru vehicles are. I'm looking forward to what the future has in store for the "Subaru Loves the Earth ”campaign. Peace Love & Growth -Tim Lewis


July 2019 - Subaru offers hope, love and warmth!  –  Lindsay S

Major Harrison and Jeff Rosen of Ganley Subaru of Bedford were thrilled to visit The Seidman Cancer Center at University Hospital Minoff Health Center. Armed with blankets and cards, Chesley Cheatham of University Hospital guided Major and Jeff along with Executive Director, Lindsay Silverstein from the Northern Ohio Leukemia & Lymphoma Society chapter to visit with patients and their families/friends where they offered hope, love, and warmth. Between those individuals receiving treatment and those waiting in the waiting room, everyone was really touched to receive such a nice gift from the Loves to Care Program. Thank you to University Hospital in Cleveland and Ganley Subaru Bedford for joining LLS in leading the way to cancer cures.

A Satisfied Customer Sees the Impact of Subaru  –  Kerri P

Major Harrison and Brandon Boro of Ganley Subaru of Bedford were thrilled to visit The Seidman Cancer Center at University Hospital. Armed with blankets and lunch box sized arts & crafts kits, Chesley Cheatham and Marge Galla of University Hospital guided Major and Brandon along with representatives from the Northern Ohio Leukemia & Lymphoma Society chapter to patients and their families where they offered hope, love, and warmth. A highlight of the visit was meeting Maureen Kline a nurse on the oncology floor. Unbeknownst to Major and Brandon, Maureen had recently purchased a new Subaru Forrester from their location! Maureen had a very positive experience when purchasing her car and was now watching that Subaru is more than cars. Subaru shows love and respect to all people and makes the world a better place. Thank you to University Hospital in Cleveland and Ganley Subaru Bedford for joining LLS in leading the way to cancer cures.


Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Blanket Delivery  –  Rebecca H

University Hospitals patients who were receiving cancer treatment received toasty warm blankets, craft kits and care cards hand-delivered by a team from Ganley Subaru of Bedford and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Staff members from both groups interacted with patients, family members and caregivers, offering them a bright spot during a very difficult time.


visiting university hospitals  –  chloe b

University Hospitals in the greater Cleveland area welcomed guests John Romeo, Sales Manager and Chloe Babcock from Ganley Subaru of Bedford to visit their hospital for the Subaru Loves to Care event. Alongside some members of the hospital we visited patients fighting cancer and gave them a little bit of hope and a beautiful blue blanket donated by Subaru of America. Not only was it a blessing to see the patients light up when we presented them with the blankets, it was nice to see that even though they are fighting cancer they still had a reason to smile and laugh. Who knew that a little blue blanket could bring so much happiness? We were also able to visit the children at Rainbow Babies and Children’s hospital to give them a lunchbox full of art supplies. John and I got a tour of the facility where we were shown the beautiful grounds. The hospital has an outdoor area for the children to play in and the library is full of books and movies for them to choose from. Inside is a small stage events the children participate in. Not only was it a moving experience for Mr. Romeo and myself, it was an experience that neither one of us will forget for a long time to come.


Ganley Subaru of Bedford earth event  –  Gearity E

Ganley Subaru of Bedford was invited on May 16th to Gearity Elementary School to celebrate the earth! The fabulous Jackie Taylor who is the STEM coordinator explained to the Ganley Subaru representatives John Romeo and Chloe Babcock that Gearity Elementary is a STEM based public school. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Jackie explained that the school is very hands on when learning about the environment. The students enjoy taking care of a greenhouse on school grounds. They also learn the benefits of growing their own vegetables, taking care of insect based plants, and tending to the plants to keep them healthy. The students understand why protecting the earth is so important and how humanity can coexist with nature. The second graders of Angela Hoang’s class were very excited about the bird feeder, frog pond, bird baths, and plants that Subaru sent over. They already planted the insect attracting plants and look forward to hanging up the bird feeders and bird bath to study the birds and see how they interact with nature. Mr. Romeo spoke to the students about the Subaru plant in indiana explaining what the plant does and how it coexisits with nature. He explained how we can, in our community create the same environment as the plant in Indiana.


Children and Teen Volunteers saying Thank You  –  Yosef M

The Holiday spirit was in the air when a bus full of children stopped by Ganley Subaru of Bedford to thank the incredible team of salespeople who were sharing the story of Friendship Circle to customers as part of the Share the Love event. Friendship Circle recruits teenagers to befriend children with special needs, and engages them in a full range of social and community activities. The children are enriched through these friendships, by giving them joyful moments, self-confidence, and important life skills and social skills lessons for the real world. Teenagers describe their involvement with Friendship Circle as transforming, because the feeling you get from helping a child through a challenge is so self-rewarding as well. During the two-week school break, teens dedicate their time to participate at Friendship Circle's Winter Camp. On Thursday, December 22, camp was returning from a trip of bowling, and were excited to make a stop at Ganley Subaru of Bedford to present a large Thank You Card to general manager Michael Friedman and his team. They were in for a surprise when all the staff at Ganley Subaru hander the children ready-made packages of gifts and chocolate, as a Holiday gift for the children. There was much laughter, singing and joy, which left an uplifting positive impression on the staff, the campers and the customers that were lucky to witness this touching encounter.

Subaru Finds Homes for Over 25 Homeless Animals  –  Anna Marie V

On October 8th, Ganley Subaru East and Lake Humane Society partnered for the 3rd year in a row for a mega adopt-a-thon. Together, we found homes for 28 dogs and kittens in need! Time and time again, Ganley Subaru East has shown us that they genuinely care about their community. They are a dealership with not only great customer service, but great philanthropy. We are proud partners of Ganley Subaru East and can't explain in words how much we appreciate everything they do to make this world a better place.


Ganley Subaru Shares the Love Again!  –  Jennifer S

For the seventh year in a row, Ganley Subaru of Bedford teamed up with the Rose Centers for Aging Well to help raise awareness for senior hunger. This year Ganley Subaru collected non-perishable food items at their dealership and helped deliver meals to low-income and homebound seniors in the community. On the day of the drive, Ganley Subaru employees rolled up to Southeast Clergy Meals on Wheels in four Subaru vehicles. Ganley employees were paired with Meals on Wheels volunteers to deliver hot meals, frozen meals and special holiday gift bags that were donated from local churches. Many seniors commented on the new delivery car in their driveway as Ganley Subaru employees and volunteers arrived at their doorsteps. Many of these seniors live below the poverty line and are often very isolated in their home. Their meal delivery driver may be the only social interaction they have all day. Seeing the smiles on their faces and the appreciation from the seniors receiving meals made everyone's day.
