The 2019 Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment Award

What is the Subaru Love Promise?

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.

The Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment

We believe in being a positive force in something bigger. And it all starts right here in our community. Not just by our donations, but by our actions.

That's why we stay true to our Love Promise Community Commitment by partnering with a wide variety of community nonprofits and charities.

Every year, we join hands with our owners in the "Share the Love" event, giving back to our community-a community that's given so much to us.

So, every day, we strive to ensure our love is felt not just by our customers, but by all in our community. We do this because we feel it is the right thing to do.

We are proud to participate in the Love Promise Community Commitment. We're grateful, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve and support the causes and passions that are closest to our hearts, right here in our neighborhood.

All of the organizations we support have one thing in common: the unwavering dedication to improve the world and the lives of ­its people.

How is Ed Reilly Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

We believe in being more than a Subaru retailer. We believe in being part of our community by setting an example and building lifelong relationships. We want to ensure the love is not only felt by our customers, but by all. Not just because it's good for business, but because it's the right thing to do.

Love Promise Stories from Ed Reilly Subaru

Caring for pets is the Subaru style!  –  Pope Memorial S

Caring for pets is the Subaru style!

The Pope Memorial SPCA is dedicated to caring for abandoned and homeless pets, protecting and advocating for pets in need, and promoting the humane treatment of all animals. They envision our local communities as safe havens for animals, where a nurturing human-animal bond is created and animals are always treated with love, respect, and compassion. The SPCA is concerned with the animal’s lifetime care by placing them in loving homes that have been vetted as a good fit. This goal is achieved by evaluating animals medically and behaviorally while providing all necessary veterinary care. Pope Memorial doesn’t euthanize animals for non-medical reasons. Subaru loves animals and in fact, it’s one of our brand pillars. According to the ASPCA®, each year approximately 6.5 million companion animals enter shelters. Whether our animals live in our homes, shelters, or in the wild, we are committed to keeping them all safe and healthy. Every October since 2015, through our Subaru Loves Pets initiative we collect new pet supplies to be donated to local animal organizations. Ed Reilly Subaru has built a great relationship with Pope Memorial SPCA and we’re proud to help them every year. They care for over 1400 animals annually and also run a community pet pantry. Each month there is roughly 80 families that rely on the pantry to keep their pets fed. This year we filled up one of the all-new 2019 Ascents and drove over with all of our supplies. We were greeted by their friendly staff as well as Theo the hound mix! We look forward to next year’s drive!

Ed Reilly Subaru Loves Learning

“Subaru Loves Learning” is one of the brand pillars that Ed Reilly Subaru really likes participating in over the years. During August, as the long hot summer was in full swing, we held an in-store book drive with a focus on science. Many of the books that were donated, help educate students on animals and other interesting subjects in the field of science. We also included some school supplies in our donation, which definitely come in handy during the busy school season. For our second year in a row, we were very happy to partner with the Mill Brook School which is an elementary school located right here in Concord, NH. Mill Brook and the Concord school system overall, are dedicated to helping students develop a passion for learning, experience excellence in their lives, and have the ability to shape the future of their lives and their community in which they live. We believe in that same vision and along with the Subaru brand, are committed to making the world a better place by embracing all people and seeking to always promote learning. We delivered our collected books and supplies over to the school, where some students greeted us with excitement and big smiles. We met with them and their lovely principal and took some pictures. It is always rewarding to see so many young people retaining an interest in reading and learning new information. Ed Reilly Subaru remains proud to be a part of this wonderful event and we’re always happy to contribute to the enrichment of children’s lives.

Defeating Hunger with Love  –  Molly V

Defeating Hunger with Love

Subaru strives to be more than just an automobile company in all aspects and is dedicated to making the world a better place to live in. The Subaru Love Promise is a continued assurance that shows respect to people everywhere and at every interaction with our brand. One of our most popular and longest running national charity programs is the Subaru “Share the Love” event. Since 2008, this program has donated more than $94 million to charity, with customers choosing between 4 national charities and over 660 local organizations. This year’s event ran from November 16, 2017 through January 2, 2018 and each customer who purchased or leased a new Subaru (2017–2018) could designate one of the selected charities to receive a $250.00 donation. With great results achieved for the program’s 10th anniversary, it is Subaru’s hope to exceed the $115 million mark after this year’s results are completely totaled. For our fifth year in a row, Ed Reilly Subaru teamed up with The Friendly Kitchen as our charity of choice. Located right here in Concord, NH, they are an amazing organization that seeks to provide a meal for the hungry in an environment that is warm, welcoming, caring, and non-discriminatory. Through the coordination of community volunteer resources, The Friendly Kitchen has an unwavering commitment to the hungry. Currently, the organization takes food donations from individuals, restaurants, grocery stores, and many service organizations. Financial support comes from individuals, faith communities, trusts, and businesses. Thanks to our customers and our community, on Thursday, April 12th Ed Reilly Subaru was able to present the Friendly Kitchen with a check for $20,000.00 which were the funds generated from this past year’s event. Our five year total, which we are quite proud of, now stands at $102,805.50.This Friendly Kitchen’s story started in 1980 and continues today with the help of dedicated volunteers whom are relied upon heavily. The organization is always looking for people to assist and is constantly accepting additional volunteers from the local community. If you would like to help this group help those that are in need, please give them a call today! They can be reached at (603) 224-7678 or check them out at their website: at Ed Reilly Subaru we thoroughly embrace this wonderful program and look forward to continuing to “Share the Love” for many years to come.

Flood the Love!  –  Ed Reilly S

Flood the Love!

Ed Reilly Subaru showed their commitment to the “Subaru Loves to Care” initiative by hosting a hurricane relief supply drive! In the wake of Hurricane Harvey we partnered with Finders Keepers NH to host a “Flood the Love” hurricane emergency supply drive! Our goal was to fill our two showroom Foresters with supplies of the highest need. For example, diapers, toiletries, pet food etc. We reached out to our customers as well as fans on our social media platforms and the response was heartwarming! We filled both Foresters in no time at all! Many families brought donations handpicked by their children for children effected by the devastating storm and flooding. Donations were collected from September 1st until September 15th. Donations were transported in a 53’ truck to San Antonio, Dallas and Southern Louisiana. The truck and driver were donated by BCB Transport LLC! Our efforts were combined with several police, fire and the New Hampshire National Guard members! Special thanks to the team members at Finders Keepers and our Concord Community for such a successful turn out!

Filling-A-Forester for the Animals in Need  –  Lori T

Filling-A-Forester for the Animals in Need

Recognizing not only a need in our community but that it aligns so well with the Subaru culture, Ed Reilly Subaru went above and beyond this past November when they hosted a "Fill-A-Forester" event for the animals in our care, the Pope Memorial SPCA. Wildly successful, we were floored to see that they packed the Forester to the brim, thanks to their generosity and the support shown from their customers! Not only were the donations used for the animals in our care (1,400+ annually), but they also filled our Community Pet Pantry. Every month, over 80 families rely on our pantry to keep their households going and the mouths of their pets fed, keeping them in their loving and caring homes. The generosity and excitement shown by the Ed Reilly Subaru family was not only extremely appreciated but make an impact community wide. We are so fortunate they chose to support our efforts and we look forward to growing this partnership for years to come. We truly felt the love and can't thank them enough. Thank you, Ed Reilly Subaru!

Fighting Hunger With Friendly Kitchen  –  Phil W

Fighting Hunger With Friendly Kitchen

"Eating Isn't a Privilege - It's a Human Right." This statement on The Friendly Kitchen's website inspired Ed Reilly Subaru, Inc. to suggest this local charity for Subaru's "Share the Love" Program. Ed Reilly Subaru supports many charities, but, near to our heart is feeding the needy. The Friendly Kitchen is the only soup kitchen in New Hampshire's capitol city of Concord. We felt that The Friendly Kitchen certainly fits the goals of Subaru's "Share the Love Program." It has given wonderful exposure to the generous efforts of the 700 plus volunteers that support this smaller local charity. This mission of the Friendly Kitchen is simply stated as..."To feed the hungry." This statement is a simple one, but, it exemplifies the substantial commitment of this charity to accomplish this objective. In 2013, the volunteers of The Friendly Kitchen served over 60,000 meals. M. Philip Wallingford, President of the Board of Directors of The Friendly Kitchen was given a check for over $3,000 from Subaru's "Share the Love" Program. "This is such a special moment for The Friendly Kitchen," said Mr. Wallingford. "The generosity and kindness of Ed Reilly Subaru, our hometown Subaru Dealer, has brought, not only a financial benefit to our cause, but, has brought much exposure to the work of our many volunteers." The Friendly Kitchen is located on South Commercial St., Concord, NH, just off of Route 393.
