We're honored to receive the 2019 Subaru Love Promise Customer and Community Commitment Award.

The 2019 Subaru Love Promise Customer and 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.

Subaru Loves Learning  –  LoRia N

Tuesday, we received a wonderful phone call informing us Valley Middle School was chosen to receive a donation of 150 prize-winning books to support our science curriculum! This call was from Grand Forks Subaru in conjunction with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)! Their goal is to encourage continued growth in learning through reading in our schools. What a great surprise and an awesome example of businesses within our community supporting education! A BIG Thank You to Grand Forks Subaru & AAAS for this donation! LoRia Novak, Media Specialist Valley Middle School Grand Forks

Grand Forks Subaru "Loves to Care" Event  –  Hudson T

Subaru partnered with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to help show they “Love to Care”. Bags with blankets and messages of hope, and craft boxes will be passed out to patients and their families facing these diseases. Altru Cancer Center was more than happy to help us spread love and hope to ONE VERY SPECIAL BOY (“epic” as he would say)!! We had the absolute pleasure of spending time with Hudson Tanabe, who was diagnosed with Acute-Lymphoblastic Leukemia in March 2017. Look at that smile! How can he not brighten your day! From all of us at Grand Forks Subaru, keep on smiling Hudson! Your courage and strength are truly an inspiration!

#SubaruLovesToCare with LLS + Altru Health  –  Celeste L

For the third year in a row, Grand Forks Subaru, Subaru of America, and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society have teamed up for the Subaru Loves to Care initiative, a cause that spreads hope, love and warmth to those fighting cancer through gestures of caring. On Friday, June 15, 2018, Matt Bredemeier represented Subaru at Altru Health System and brought 80 blankets, along with arts and crafts kits and cards of hope to patients. One such patient was Hudson Tanabe, a five year old who was diagnosed with b-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in 2017. Hudson is just over a year into treatment and has been able to maintain somewhat of a“normal” life. He finished preschool at Sacred Heart this spring, and he will attend kindergarten at Holy Family - St. Mary’s School in the fall. Hudson was surrounded by family as he accepted the blanket from Subaru’s Matt Bredemeier with a huge smile on his face. The Tanabe family is grateful for all the support and love they have received, saying, “We have been truly blessed by our family, friends, and this Grand Forks community. We have been loved, fed, prayed for, embraced, emotionally supported, given gifts, and helped with our other boys in order continue to help Hudson heal.” The Subaru Loves to Care Event is just another reminder to the Tanabe family of how compassionate and supportive their community has been.

Addressing Senior Hunger Locally  –  Becky C

The enthusiasm Matt Bredemeier and his team at Grand Forks Subaru have for supporting our local Meals on Wheels program is so genuine. The Grand Forks Senior Center Meals on Wheels program has partnered with Grand Forks Subaru through the"Share the Love" event and March for Meals program for the past three years. The employees chauffeur our regular volunteers in brand new Subaru vehicles to deliver meals multiple times a year. They are also willing to get into the holiday spirit, wearing Santa hats and singing carols to deliver meals and goodies plates in December. This always puts a smile on our clients faces! Matt is quick to remind me that he has no problem finding employees to volunteer with Meals on Wheels because other employees have had such a great experience. When our regular Meals on Wheels volunteers won a statewide group volunteer award from the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Grand Forks Subaru readily provided a vehicle to transport the honorees to the award banquet an hour away. Whenever we reach out to Grand Forks Subaru, we're always greeted with a smile and a willingness to do whatever they can to help support this critical program for our community. In 2014, Grand Forks Subaru sponsored the local Meals on Wheels chapter as a Hometown Charity for the Subaru "Share the Love" event because they truly believe in keeping dollars local. We appreciate how Grand Forks Subaru embraces the Subaru Love Promise in our community.
