We've been nationally recognized for our dedication to our customers, our community, and the Subaru Love Promise.
We're honored to receive the 2023 Subaru Love Promise Customer and Community Commitment Award. This award nationally recognizes elite Subaru retailers who provide an exceptional customer experience at every interaction with Subaru. These retailers have also demonstrated an outstanding commitment to supporting passions and causes in their local communities in important areas such as the environment, community, health, education, and pets.
Subaru and our retailers believe in making the world a better place and the Subaru Love Promise is our vision of respecting all people. This is our commitment to show love and respect to our customers and to work to make a positive impact in the world.
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.

On Tuesday, December 20th, 18-year-old Beau of Sloatsburg, New York in Rockland County received the surprise of a lifetime – finding out that his wish to go visit to the Doppelmeyer Facility in Utah will be coming true, led by Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley and Bill Kolb Jr. Subaru. Beau, who courageously battles a critical, life-threatening illness, was completely unaware that his wish would be revealed on Tuesday afternoon. He thought he was bringing in his Subaru for routine maintenance when in fact we worked with the family and longtime community and corporate partner, Bill Kolb Jr. Subaru, to surprise him right before the holidays. Beau was thrilled when he was given a walkaround tour of the 2023 Outback Wilderness Yeti Edition designed by Bill Kolb Jr. Senior Sales Manager, Joseph Postighone. Because of Beau’s love for science and engineering, the vehicle walkaround tour was a perfect way to start his surprise wish reveal. As Joe showed Beau all the bells and whistles with the vehicle including custom Yeti-designed car logo, headrests and pinstriping – his family and Make-A-Wish staff were quietly getting ready to surprise him. At the end of the tour, when opening the trunk, Beau was presented with exciting gifts from, Pedigree Ski Shop in Bedford, NY, to help prepare Beau for his trip – including goggles, gloves, multi-functional neck tube, and ski socks. Finally, the scene was set to surprise Beau who turned around to see his family and supporters holding a sign that read “Your wish is granted” – the group included Beau’s family along with Make-A-Wish staff, Subaru employees – who together, helped deliver hope and joy into Beau’s life when it needed most. Because of Beau’s interest in science and engineering, the tour around the vehicle foreshadows his upcoming wish experience which will include a visit to the Doppelmeyer Facility in Utah to learn more about the process of how ski lifts are engineered from design to execution. He and his family are also avid skiers, so they will get to ski while they are visiting Utah. As part of the Subaru Share the Love® Event, Nov. 17 through Jan. 3, 2023, Subaru of America will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased nationwide to the customer's choice of participating national charities, including Make-A-Wish. As a proud supporter of Make-A-Wish since 2011, Subaru is honored to support this wish for such an inspirational and resilient child. This year, multiple Make-A-Wish chapters across many Subaru retailer locations have been chosen as hometown charities, to which customers will be able to direct their support. Locally, Bill Kolb Jr. Subaru selected Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley for their hometown charity and will additionally donate $25 to the chapter for each sold or leased vehicle. “We wanted to help make this wish reveal something Beau would never forget”, said, Chris Flood, General Manager of Bill Kolb Jr. Subaru. To learn more about how to join Subaru and others in making life-changing wishes possible for children with critical illnesses, visit wish.org/Subaru.

We have partnered with Bill Kolb Jr Subaru to spread the hope, love and warmth to patents at Montefiore Nyack. We were able to donate 80 beautiful blankets to the hospital to spread to their patients. Patients are in the infusion center for hours at a time and these blankets keep them warm as they are going through treatments. The staff at the hospital were very appreciative to be chosen for the blanket donation. Thank you Bill Kolb Jr Subaru!!
The funds raised during the Share the Love campaign are used to help grant local wishes for kids like Bryan, 17, who wished to go to the 2022 MLB All-Star Game. Due to COVID-19, Bryan’s wish was postponed for two years but his resilience never wavered, he looked forward to meeting his baseball heroes – including NY Yankee, Aaron Judge. While fighting his illness, Bryan anxiously counted down the days until his wish would come true. His wish was recently granted in Los Angeles, and he was able to experience the Futures Game, Celebrity Softball Game, the Home Run Derby, and the MLB Draft in addition to the All-Star Game itself! He had a jam-packed wish, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of community supporters like you, our friends at Subaru.
