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 to Care  –  Kacie F

On Thursday, June 28, 2018, I, Kacie Francois, had the pleasure and honor of representing the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in presenting Lafayette General Hospital’s infusion center with blankets sponsored by Subaru of Baton Rouge. Representatives from Subaru of Baton Rouge supplied eight boxes of beautiful plaid blankets to be handed out to patients in the infusion center. Also included was a box asking individuals to leave a message of hope for those battling cancer. As a former patient that has spent numerous hours in an infusion center I know the value of both a warm blanket and a message of hope. While we were not able to personally hand out the blankets to patients due to restrictions we are satisfied knowing the staff of Lafayette General appreciates the gift and will hand them to patients as needed. Thank you, Subaru, for including me in this great act of generosity and for standing behind your words…”Subaru Loves to Care”.

The Patriot Shootout for Folds of Honor  –  Frank G

I helped start a golf event for The Folds of Honor Foundation along with a lot of help from John and David Fabre, owners of Subaru of Baton Rouge 7 years ago and our Title Sponsors for The Patriot Shootout. The Folds of Honor is a non-profit organization that provides educational scholarships for Louisiana children and spouses of military men and women disabled or killed while serving our great nation! To date, we have raised over 1 million dollars that translates into approximately 200 scholarships. The Subaru "Share the Love" program during the Christmas holidays has helped us a great deal. I just wanted to thank both David and John for their support for The Folds of Honor!

Subaru Supports CAAWS  –  Libby H

In the fall of 2017, Subaru of Baton Rouge contacted the Capital Area Animal Welfare Society asking how they could help our homeless cats and dogs. What started as Subaru posting pictures of our adoptable dogs on their Facebook page turned into a relationship where they attend all of our major fundraisers, help promote our events, and even donate to our organization. In January 2018, Subaru of Baton Rouge donated a percentage of their car sales to the CAAWS Heartworm Treatment Fund. This fund allows us to pull heartworm positive dogs from kill shelters, treat them, and get them adopted into loving homes. CAAWS is thankful to Ben Ledet and Kaci Melancon at Subaru of Baton Rouge for their generosity and truly caring hearts.

2017 Dreams come true for terminally ill children  –  Michael M

Subaru and NWF Love the Earth!  –  Eric S

We are excited about our new garden plants and elements. We are looking forward to staff and students from our summer program working in the garden and making observations of animals, bugs and plant growth.

The Great Car Caper  –  Melet K

What can I say? My first experience with Subaru of Baton Rouge started off with a bang. I decided to buy my mom a new car for Mother's Day/Birthday, and in her birthstone color. After finding the perfect automobile, I turned to see Missy (a saleswoman) walking up with the most welcoming smile. So,the plotting began. How do I get my mother's car without her noticing it? Missy agreed to ride with me to the house and snatch the car! As I snuck to the car port, Missy crouched down beside my car, beneath a crepe myrtle tree! Her plan was to run around to the back of the house, in case my mom came to the front door! I jumped in my mother's car and pulled up to the side of the house to retrieve Missy. Missy hopped in the car and we sped off like two gangsters! Mission accomplished! Ms. Jackson was very professional and accommodating. She was just as excited as I was to pull off the heist! Everyone was so kind. I truly enjoyed the experience. Missy was kind enough to follow me back to the "scene of the crime" and surprise my mom with her new Subaru Forester, complete with a red bow. I tricked my mom into coming outside, and the rest is history. Missy stayed and helped my mom get oriented to the car, and met my baby bird. The bird (a boy) then proceeded to flirt with Missy. After convincing him that she was married, Ms. Jackson laughed her way back to her car. It was freaking awesome! Thank you Subaru of Baton Rouge, and thank you Missy for everything! - Melet K.

Trick AND Treat Pawty  –  Jason H

BREC Dog Parks held its Howl-o-ween costume pawty on October 21st at the Raising Cane's Dog Park at Forest Park Community Park. When we found out that Subaru may be interested in participating, we immediately reached out. Unfortunately, this was about 2 weeks before the event date. Caitlin and Subaru, said "no problem" and were an AMAZING addition to the event. They were at the event participating by handing out treats for both the kids dressed in costume AND the four legged dogs competing in the contest. We look forward to growing our relationship and bringing even better events to the people of EBR. Thank you Subaru! Jason H.-BREC Extreme Sports/Dog Parks

Why Love IS what makes a Subaru, a Subaru  –  Paula W

My story begins back in SC where I bought my 2002 Outback from Prestige Subaru. I brought her home on Christmas Eve and was quite promptly told on the drive home that her name was Pearl. Yes, my girl Pearl and I went every where together and she became a wonderful geocaching companion!! As fate would have it, I wound up returning to Louisiana to live. One of my biggest concerns was where I was going to take Pearl. I finally called Subaru of BR for an oil change and had fun talking with Tracy in service. When Pearl and I got there, Aaron greeted us outside, held the door open for me to get out and to go in. I met Tab, he worked on Pearl, and Maria who is over parts. I truly felt I had found not just a great Subaru Dealer, but a new home. What I loved is that everyone always remembered Pearls name because I adore that car and had no plans of trading her in. But on Easter when we arrived home, a HUGE oak tree had fallen on top of her during a storm. I felt my heart had broken......and still do sometimes. There were power lines down and I couldn't get to my dear friend. I cried on and off all week. So, I called BR Subaru and spoke with Aaron. I went out there and we all looked at the pictures of Pearl. They were compassionate and supportive. I now drive a 2015 Outback that has more buttons than I know what to do with. If you have an older Subaru or a new one, let Subaru of BR become your new home. I'm glad I did because they have become like family :-).

sponsor  –  Tim B

I would like to thank Subaru of BR for sponsoring me in the Jambalaya Festival cooking contest in Gonzales, LA this past weekend. It shows their support in past traditions. The traditions of the Festival are being kept alive by businesses like Subaru of BR showing their support of their customers and potential customers. Thanks again for sponsoring me and for keeping traditions alive.

Pets and Santa Paws  –  Paula U

Subaru of Baton Rouge Hosts "Pictures with Santa Paws" Event  –  Paula S

Last Saturday, Subaru of Baton Rouge partnered up with its local chapter of Friends of the Animals to host our annual "Pictures with Santa Paws" Event. Santa took pictures with all of his Subaru family, and one of our dealers even got to adopt a puppy of his own! Thanks so much to everyone who came out, and we can't wait to see you all next year!
