Here’s what the campaign entails:

  • Subaru chose four national charities— Make-A-Wish, ASPCA, Meals on Wheels America and the National Park Foundation— and each Subaru dealer chose a fifth local charity.
  • From November 17th and January 3rd, customers who purchased or leased a new vehicle had the opportunity to donate $250 to the charity of their choice.

Our Subaru of Monroeville team partnered with Family House. They raised a total of $14,832 for the non-profit. Team members also collected a number of food and toiletries with the help of the Supply Tree in their showroom.

Since 1983, Family House has provided an affordable “home away from home” for patients and their families who are receiving medical treatment in Pittsburgh. The donations will be used to make families that much more comfortable.

For the second year in a row, Subaru of Butler teamed up with our friends at the Butler County Humane Society. Team members presented the no-kill shelter with the $14,371 check. They also helped raise awareness for the animals in need of a forever home with an

The shelter has provided refuge for homeless dogs and cats for more than a century, without any government funding. They rely solely on donations. The money raised will be used for facility maintenance as well as raising pet care awareness.

Hometown charities in the Philadelphia zone— like Family House and BCHS— received a total of $855,000 from local Subaru dealers. In total, Subaru of America has donated more than $93 million to the causes they support.

We thank our customers for helping us with our commitment to making our communities better.
