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 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 Stohlman Subaru 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. Please take a moment to appreciate these organizations and the good that they do everyday.

Love Promise Stories from Stohlman Subaru

Subaru and Stohlman Subaru 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


Stohlman Subaru came out and joined forces with us as leaders in the community taking the initiative in cleaning up our parks & streams in Herndon Virginia. It's nice to know that the Stohlman Family still loves and cares about our town. Stohlman was a huge dealership in our Old Town of Herndon providing numerous jobs and, cars & services to our friends and family. I have my forester I bought from Fernando & still get it serviced at Stohlman in Tysons because I work out there. They have since moved to a gorgeous building in Sterling, but their hearts are still here in Herndon. I smile every single time I see a Stohlman License plate, thanks for your commitment to our community for all these years.

Proud to do good  –  Jessica A

Arriving at Inova Fairfax Children’s wing is always heartwarming. The hospital boasts a colorful playground out front, and large crayons and colorful caterpillars dot the wall. Just as it had two days earlier for our delivery with a different dealership, the oppressive D.C. heat kept families indoors, but the scene was cheerful nonetheless. Taylor, the hospital Community Coordinator, and I waited for Adam from Stohlman in the lobby and she said that they had already handed out all of the blankets from two days earlier and that patients who didn’t receive one were eager for one. And then, just like magic, Adam arrived! Adam expertly staged the photo, and then we all discussed how lucky we are to get the chance to bring light and comfort to children in treatment. Three interns were present and one shared that a little girl who was in treatment said the blanket was the softest she’d ever felt. Adam and his colleagues beamed – it was clear that they really embody Subaru’s philosophy and it was very touching to see.

Book Donations and more from Stohlman Subaru  –  EL Haynes S

We have a passion for teaching and learning here at E.L. Haynes. With the help of Stohlman Subaru, we now have many more books to add to our library, which has helped us provide more of a variety for our students. Stohlman has such great employees to come down and carry all these boxes of books and interact with the students & staff. We have quite a few Subaru owners here and some are purchased from Stohlman! Thank you for all your support!

Herndon's Arbor Day Celebration  –  Cindy R

Once again with Stohlman’s generosity, including the help of you and your staff, the second Town of Herndon Shred Event was a success! Herndon Parks and Recreation Department is grateful we were able to provide a secure shredding service for local community members. This service was a perfect addition to our Annual Park and Stream Clean- Up, and our Earth Day/Arbor Day Ceremony. The attendance for all three events on Saturday was robust. Over 100 people participated in the park and stream clean-up. Thanks again for supporting our department in our goal to be good stewards of the environment. It is wonderful to experience a local auto dealership going the extra mile to preserve the outdoors. It was a joy to work with you and your event staff. An extra big thank you to the Stohlman Family for their continued assistance with our community-wide special events.

It's how you finish the race  –  Carrie N

Every family deserves a fair shot at getting to the other side of cancer. The fact is, families fighting cancer often find themselves unable to make ends meet at the end of the month. Thanks to Stohlman Subaru our official Finish Line Sponsor, we were able to surpass our goal of $50,000+ at this years JUST TRYAN IT TRIATHLON in Northern Virginia. The excitement all your staff volunteers had for every one of our athletes as they crossed the finish line was heartwarming. These funds will go directly to the families that need them most. We could not have done it without your support Stohlman!

Thank You Stohlman for Sharing Hope & Warmth!  –  Jenny H

Stohlman Subaru arrived at INOVA Fairfax Children’s Hospital on Wednesday, August 1st not knowing quite what to expect. They had participated in the Loves to Care blanket deliveries in previous years but this was their first time delivering to INOVA Fairfax. They were incredibly excited because this hospital was much closer to their retail location and they were looking forward to helping patients right in their own community. The INOVA Fairfax and LLS staff were on hand to greet them as they arrived! We had a special guest to help the INOVA Fairfax staff accept the donation. Tyler Demille, a lively young LLS Honored Hero, and his family came to share about their cancer journey along with how much LLS and the Subaru deliveries mean to patient families just like them. Tyler was proud to announce he is 11 years cancer free and truly enjoyed delivering blankets. The Stohlman Subaru team was very moved and gave a blanket to both Tyler, and his sister Meadow, to keep as a souvenir of this special day.

Stohlman Subaru surpassed their Love Promise to us  –  Brian B

For the second year, we have been blessed as recipients of the Stohlman Subaru of Tysons Share the Love campaign. We are devoted to developing better solutions for urban education, and that has both its triumphs and its challenges. Through the assistance of our generous community, we continue to see our students develop skills, both inside and outside the classroom, that will become lifelong habits. Education is the key to a better future, and while our students may have walked into our school with challenges and experiences not everyone understands, they are surely leaving our community with the tools, confidence, and education needed to make changes in the world. Thank you, Stohlman Subaru of Tysons, and to your customers who so generously picked WJA as their Share the Love recipient. You are changing lives, and putting so much love into all of our hearts!

Stohlman Subaru Loves to Care!  –  Jenny H

Stohlman Subaru of Tysons shared the love at Novant Health UVA Health System in Manassas, VA on July 10th where they delivered 80 blankets, 10 arts & craft kits and messages of hope for patients. When we arrived upstairs Ali Avera, a registrar in the Oncology Center, and Gail Behrle, a staff member from one of the in-patient units were there to greet us. They were both incredibly pleased and grateful at the prospect of having blankets to give to incoming patients. They both expressed that they believed the care cards and blankets would help keep patients’ morale up and stay warm. Kelly Persons, director of Novant Health’s foundation, explained how, “It will be so meaningful to our cancer patients to know that they are thought of by the folks in our local Subaru dealerships. Through the Subaru Loves to Care donations, our cancer patients at Novant Health UVA Health System are being cheered on, with blankets and care kits, during their journey to good health!” Rich echoed similar thoughts and told us that the value of a blanket is so important to patients for many reasons. He told us that not only do the blankets help patients stay warm, but also give them hope. They let patients know that people in the community truly care about them and their health. Rich explained to the Stohlman Subaru representatives that the blankets they were delivering were going to make a world of difference to the patients in the hospital.

Stohlman Subaru Puts A Little Love in Our Heart!  –  Suzanne A

WJA is dedicated to creating an inclusive learning environment for boys in low-income communities in the DC Metro area, where the only question that remains is, “What more can we do for our students, our families and our community to change the face of urban education?” We are honored by the support from the dedicated faculty and staff of Stohlman Subaru, support that is vital in our mission. With the support of Stohlman Subaru and customers, we were able to answer that question while providing top-level educational services to these bright stars. The Subaru Share the Love program has allowed us to see the motivation of the students, faculty, and staff of WJA grow. We feel fortunate to have such a positive influence in our midst, one that enables us to pass along important lessons, whether academic or life lessons, to our students. We were so inspired by the generosity of Stohlman Subaru and the DC Metro area, we made a special song for the occasion.

E.L. Haynes Thanks Stohlman!  –  Sharlene S

We want to express our gratitude to Stohlman Subaru for their generous donation of 250 books to our school.

The books donated by Stohlman are helping our students fulfill the E.L. Haynes mission to reach high levels of academic achievement and be prepared to succeed at the college of their choice. Thank you, Stohlman Subaru, you help make a difference for our students!
