"Hey Doug!"

What is the Subaru Love Promise?

The Subaru Love Promise is just that. A promise. It is a promise to do right by our community by partnering with nonprofit education, health, community, environment, and animal organizations - to set Subaru apart through our deeds and the deeds of our partners. To be unlike any other car company by doing what is right and good, just for the sake of doing it.

The Love Promise starts with Subaru of America

We at Subaru of America stay true to the Love Promise by partnering with a wide variety of nonprofits and charities. In addition to these partnerships, every year Subaru, our owners, and our retailers join hands in the "Share the Love" event, giving back to charities across the country. Over the past 20 years, Subaru of America has donated over 50 million dollars to causes we care about, and logged over 28,000 volunteer hours.  All organizations we support have one thing in common: the unwavering dedication to improve the world and the lives of its people.

 Doug Smith Subaru has had the honor of selecting hometown charities to support as part of our Subaru Love Promise. We have selected to support local pet adoptions, programs, and education through the Humane Society of Utah; to help local families affected by autism by supporting awareness, education, programs and research through the Autism Council of Utah; to support local education programs by supporting American Fork Marching Band, Alpine School District, Highland High School, and Bingham High School; and by helping provide academic, athletic, and therapeutic opportunities to children facing significant physical, emotional, and financial challenges by supporting the Forever Young Foundation.

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 close to $14 million to the ASPCA and helped support nearly 1,000 pet adoption events, resulting in more than 11,500 adoptions to date.

Environment

Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.

Over a decade ago, Subaru became the first U.S. auto manufacturer to become zero-landfill, and now, in collaboration with the National Park Service and the National Parks Conservation Association, Subaru is leveraging that same environmental expertise to help the National Parks reach zero-landfill too.

Education

It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.

Total donations to teachers: $92,233
Over 200 teachers adopted
More than 15,000 students impacts

Community

In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.

Subaru and Meals on Wheels America worked together to make volunteering easier, by launching a tool called the Meals on Wheels Online Volunteer Drive.

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.

Subaru has donated more than $4.5 million dollars to
Make A Wish, helping to grant 610 wishes in the U.S.

How is Doug Smith 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.

Love Promise Stories from Doug Smith Subaru

Supporting the American Fork HS Marching Band  –  Michael H

Doug Smith Subaru is proud to the AFHS Marching Band at American Fork High School. We chose to support the American Fork High School Marching Band because we believe this program cultivates community pride, as well as being a pinnacle for encouraging leadership, responsibility, teamwork, pride, and hard work in the students who participate.


Improving Utah Employment for Autistic Individuals  –  Michael H

Improving Utah Employment for Autistic Individuals

The Autism Council of Utah in partnership with Doug Smith Subaru granted the Center for Persons with Disabilities in Logan, Utah $20,000. The Center for Persons with Disabilities will use these funds to distribute the Autism Speaks employment toolkit to adolescents and adults on the Autism spectrum within several of the communities in Utah. They will hold meetings to help those on the Autism spectrum gain employment, and will train businesses in Utah communities about Autism and how Autistic individuals can be great employees in their organizations. We are very excited about this grant and how it can bring about positive changes in employment for Autistic individuals in Utah.


A Service Dog to Save a Life  –  Kelley R

A Service Dog to Save a Life

At the Malinois Foundation we are so blessed to be able to provide service animals to our Veterans in need. This is the story of one such Veteran we are currently trying to help. "I deployed to Iraq in 2007 & worked in a field hospital. Seeing the things we did in the hospital were ugly in more ways than can be explained. As I returned, it was a battle to return to civilian life. Bouncing from job to job, town to town, I never had a purpose or a plan. At 35 years old, I finally decided to go to school. I am half way through my associates degree. Even in a class room full of students, I still feel alone, depressed & secluded. I try to stay at the school late into the evening.I hate the loneliness I feel. Loneliness seems to be my only companion. I hate being alone. One of the other students has a service dog to aid him. He explained to me the comfort the dog brings him & how it helps keep him calm. The dog keeps him centered. It occurred to me that’s what I need in my life. A service dog to keep me calm, centered, & most of all, away from the suicidal thoughts that join me late at night. I want to be happy; I want to have the same companionship that was in the Army; I want peace. I struggle with school, but the only thing that keeps me going is the bigger long term picture. For me, that is not graduating, but staying alive and not succumbing to the demons that plague me. I want the love of a companion. The everlasting love that can come from a dog. And also a best friend."


Contributing to Golf to Eradicate Cancer  –  Michael H

Contributing to Golf to Eradicate Cancer

Kristin Damon described herself as a mother, wife, author, crafter, baker, designer, zombie slayer, and cancer warrior. In November of 2013, Kristin was diagnosed with terminal cancer at 41 years old. After a brief remission and extensive metastasizing of the cancer, Kristin, her two children, and her husband, sought answers at the Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI). Kristin received impeccable care from Dr. Sharma and his staff at HCI. Though Kristin passed away in February 2016 surrounded by her loved ones, her legacy lives on in The Kristin Damon Project (www.thekristindamonproject.com), which helps combat cancer by selling Kristin’s books and donating a portion of the proceeds to the Huntsman Cancer Institute. After Kristin’s passing, her husband, John, became a member of the Utah Valley Area Golf to Eradicate Cancer program to further benefit the life-saving cancer research at HCI. This May, Doug Smith Subaru is sponsoring The Kristin Damon Project and the Utah Valley Area Golf to Eradicate Cancer Fundraiser at their 2nd Annual Utah Valley Area Golf Tournament where 100% of donations benefit The Primary Children’s and Families’ Cancer Research Center at Huntsman Cancer Institute.


High School Marching Band Celebrates Donation  –  Michael H

Doug Smith Subaru loves our community, which is why we are proud to support the American Fork High School Marching Band. Besides being the premier marching band in the state, having performed at the Rose Bowl, Macy’s parade, and consistently winning top honors in competitions, the American Fork High School Marching Band is also a beacon of integrity and service, donating time in local service projects such as a stuffed animal drive for The Family Support Center’s Midvale crisis nursery, as well as lending their uniforms to an opposing team at a recent competition when the team discovered they forgot two of their own uniforms. Doug Smith Subaru was proud to donate $19,000 to the marching band to help purchase a new drum line. Brad Smith presented the check to band director, Nate Seamons and colleagues on December 22 in a school assembly as the band played “Put a Little Love in Your Heart” to honor Subaru, Doug Smith Subaru, and the Subaru Love Promise.


Family, Hope & Love – Autism Council of Utah  –  Michael H

This year as part of our Subaru Love Promise, Doug Smith Subaru partnered with the Humane Society of Utah to support lifesaving programs, host adoption events and microchip clinics, educate students on the importance of choosing adoption, and sponsor a Pet of the Week program to highlight animals in need of a loving home. This partnership helped 500 pets receive microchips to return to help them return home if they ever become lost, educated over 10,000 students on the importance of pet care and choosing adoption, and helped the Humane Society of Utah save over 11,000 animals in 2016.

Subaru’s Humane Society Pet of the Week

Subaru’s Humane Society of Utah Pets of the Week always have a few things in common: they’re furry, they’re lovable, and they’re in search of a forever home.

Each week, Subaru sponsors the Humane Society of Utah’s pet of the week, helping spotlight homeless animals in need of a forever family and helping pair those animals with loving human sidekicks.

Autism Council of Utah Donation  –  Michael H

Autism Council of Utah Donation

The Autism Council of Utah is excited to announce the Doug Smith Subaru grant to the Center for Persons with Disabilities in Logan, Utah who will use it to take the adolescent and adult employment toolkit for autism throughout the State. In addition, they will train 3 to 4 businesses (potential employers) on autism in each city or town. Thank you Doug Smith Subaru for supporting our families affected by autism.


Blankets to Cancer Patients  –  Ted P

Blankets to Cancer Patients

During the month of June, Doug Smith Subaru partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to provide blankets to cancer patients at the American Fork Hospital Cancer Treatment Center. “Having lost a few family members to cancer over the last year and a half, this is something that touches everybody,” remarked Derek Schwendiman, Doug Smith Subaru Sales Manager. “We all know someone, whether directly or indirectly who is struggling with cancer. This is a hard thing in and of itself, but it would be exponentially harder to do alone. This is why any support we can give becomes so important.” Derek and Mike Smith, of the Doug Smith family, were joined by staff from LLS as well as blood cancer survivor David Kersys as they delivered blankets to the Cancer Center staff. “LLS does a fantastic job enabling companies like Subaru to show their commitment to fighting cancer within their communities,” said Mr. Kersys. “Thanks to Doug Smith Subaru and the two representatives that attended the event at American Fork Hospital. Subaru has shown that they recognize the work that the Cancer Center does for the community. Subaru has also shown that it understands that cancer is traumatic to the people involved, patients, families and friends alike. For them to provide blankets to patients at American Fork Cancer Center demonstrates that they understand, and they care!”


Steve Young, WAS and Subaru  –  Elizabeth J

What do Subaru and Wasatch Adaptive Sports have in common? Mobility is our passion. Whether in an Outback headed to ski in the mountains or in a handcycle riding 10 miles around Liberty Park, this world has a lot to see. Together, we want to make it accessible for individuals of all abilities. On March 12, 2016, the 30th annual Steve Young Ski Classic raised $275,185 thanks to the support of Silver Medal Sponsors, Doug Smith Subaru and Subaru of America. Steve Young of the San Francisco 49ers, along with Kyle Whittingham (Head Coach UofU) and Kalani Sitake (Head Coach, BYU) and other former NFL players took to the slopes at Snowbird to raise money for scholarships for children who ski, snowboard, bike, fish and bowl with WAS. Founded in 1977, Wasatch Adaptive Sports provides recreational, social and educational opportunities to children, adults and veterans with adaptive needs. The love was strong at Snowbird as 356 guests enjoyed the fun of a live and silent auction as well as the emotive words shared by WAS students, Tyler Schilhabel and Gabe Casados. Ninety-seven percent or 3,298 lessons each year are on full-scholarship meaning that neither the individual nor their family pays for the private lesson, equipment, lift ticket, etc. The support of Doug Smith Subaru and Subaru of America powers the scholarship assistance program and mission of Wasatch Adaptive Sports. Thank you!


Subaru Loves Pets Partnership  –  Rich G

Subaru Loves Pets Partnership

The Wasatch Front Subaru Retailers and Doug Smith Subaru never want us to lose our pets! On Feb. 14, 2015, the Humane Society of Utah and Doug Smith Subaru hosted the first quarterly Subaru Loves Pets Event for the year. Free Avid microchips were offered to the public as a community service to increase the likelihood of owners finding their lost furry loved ones. Bringing awareness to the plight of homeless animals in Utah and encouraging the public to microchip their pet as a safe, permanent form of identification, the first Subaru Loves Pets Event was a great success. Over 700 Utah pets now have the means to find their way home in the unfortunate event the pet goes missing. The Humane Society of Utah is grateful for the sponsorship and support from Subaru and looks forward to future collaborative events to service our community and our beloved pets.

Trunk or Treat  –  Ted P

Trunk or Treat

Since 2008, Doug Smith has been involved in organizing an annual Trunk or Treat in conjunction with American Fork Main Street. This was initially realized by an employee at the Autoplex, Joey Di Regelo, and he's headed up the event ever since. What started out as smaller event, has turned into a large community tradition, bringing together approximately 50 local vendors, the fire department and over 3,000 visitors to the dealership every year. There's a lot of candy involved! This event has brought the community together year after year, providing a fun, safe environment for kids and their families to trick or treat, and we hope it will continue to provide this service for many years to come.
