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.

Love Promise Stories from Hatfield Subaru

Subaru and Hatfield Subaru believe in making a positive impact on the communities in which we live and work. We uphold that belief through our Love Promise Community Commitment. Every month, we select inspiring stories from customers and partners from around our area who strive to support our collective commitment and feature them here

Hatfield Subaru Supports Cancer Patients  –  Camille C

Hatfield Subaru joined The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Central Ohio Chapter this summer to deliver Subaru Loves to Care blankets, craft kits and care cards to The Ohio State University’s James Cancer Hospital & Solove Research Institute. The dealership was greeted by cheers from James’ nurses, doctors, researchers and administrators who received the gifts on behalf of the patients. This year celebrates the fourth year Hatfield Subaru participated and contributed immensely to this cause. Thank you, Subaru, for your commitment to cancer patients and survivors! We value your partnership and your constant will to make a difference in the lives of those battling cancer.

A second chance for more pets  –  Megan R

Thanks to the generosity of Hatfield Subaru and their sponsorship of RescuedOhio, my foster Fry and many more dogs like him this year will live to start their new lives with families, rather than be euthanized in a shelter. Fry came to me after being dumped at Franklin County Dog Shelter. I pulled him the day he was scheduled for euthanasia due to medical reasons. He had undiagnosed masses all over his body and fractured teeth, but he had such a bright spirit that he was a volunteer favorite at the shelter. After 2 surgeries to remove and biopsy the masses, and fix his teeth, Fry is cancer-free and thriving. He is a very sweet older dog who loves meeting people, children, and other dogs, and he is alive and well thanks to everyone at Hatfield!

Hatfield Subaru to the rescue for RESCUEDohio!  –  Sheri K

I am a volunteer with RESCUEDohio, a central Ohio all volunteer dog rescue. We were so blessed to have Hatfield Subaru select RESCUEDohio as their local charity for Subaru's Share the Love event this past year. We take in and care for so many dogs, many needing expensive medical care and treatments as well as supplies and everything a foster home and pup needs to get off to a good start. Our volunteers spend much time and effort in fund raising and getting our dogs seen and adopted but we still can't keep up with the need. So when I saw the final Share the Love contribution to our rescue I was stunned and amazed by the generosity of Hatfield Subaru. I hope all who contributed in any way know they were involved in saving the lives of many dogs and helping them find great homes that not only helps the dogs but brings such love to their new families. You did more than "share the love" you shared life. Thank you.

Impactful Donation  –  Anita D

Hatfield Subaru is making a difference in our community with their “Share the Love” donation program. Their generous donation to RESCUEDohio enabled the rescue to save many dogs in need of homes. Food, medical care, and everyday supplies were provided to the foster dogs and helped these dogs find forever homes. RESCUEDohio had many foster dogs with complicated medical issues in 2018 and the donation from Hatfield Subaru enabled the Rescue to help these dogs. Thank you for your support!

Possibilities  –  Beverly S

Possibilities...that's what the generous contribution from Hatfield Subaru allowed RESCUEDohio give to many helpless dogs in 2018!¿¿ Those with more than the usual laundry list of vetting needs could get the extras...surgeries, amputations, mending broken bones, transfusions...the list goes on and on. Oh, what a difference you made for many abandoned and lost pups who needed the "love" the donation provided. Love is what so many rescued dogs need and want most - snuggles, a warm bed, toys to enjoy, daily meals, and most of all a place to call home! Generous donations such as the one you contributed do so much more than you could ever imagine. From a RO volunteer and lucky adopter of one of those loving souls you helped save - as the pictures depict...from sad with a fractured fibula to happy boy!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Saving more lives with RESCUEDohio  –  Jillian L

Subaru Hatfield chose RESCUEDohio as the charity for its hometown Share the Love event. RO is a central Ohio dog rescue that rescues between 550-600 dogs a year. In 2018, we were able to save just as many lives as in previous years, but the lives saved were much more meaningful because of the donation we received. We were able to treat more dogs with medical conditions whereas, in the past, we would have been forced to say no. We helped Lucky, a German Shepherd mix, whose owner tied him outside and a rope was cutting off the circulation of his leg. Lucky was rushed to our vet where he stayed for weeks. The doctors were worried about him losing his leg, but because of the fast acting efforts of rescuing him, Lucky’s leg is healed and didn’t need amputating. We rescued Badelia, a hound mix who was left outside by her previous owners and had complications from her spay. She had several surgeries and spent a few nights in the doggie ICU. She is healed and in her foster home waiting for a forever family. We were able to pay medical bills for Ollie, a young beagle mix who was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. Ollie spent weeks visiting specialists for his disease, but unfortunately, he passed away. A good Samaritan found a dog on the side of the road who had been hit by a car. They rushed him to our vet where he spent days in the ICU. The vets were somewhat optimistic about him turning around, but he took a turn for the worse and we had to make a very difficult decision to put him down. The point in telling these stories is not to sadden anyone, but show how much the money has helped our organization. We hate turning any dog away but pride ourselves on paying our bills on time every month. As one of the directors of RESCUEDohio, I know we will be forever grateful for Hatfield Subaru for the donation that has been made.

Subaru and NWF Love the Earth!  –  Susann W

Our students love to sit on the bench and read their favorite books in our new garden. They have taken complete ownership by weeding, planting and caring for the plants. The Kindergarten students even created signs to remind their friends not to step on the flowers and take time to smell the flowers.

Capital Area Humane Society - Share the Love  –  Emilie Z

The Capital Area Humane Society was honored to be selected as Hatfield Subaru's Hometown Charity for the Share the Love event. Your generous support of the Capital Area Humane Society will make a huge impact on the lives of the animals that come through our doors every day. Our animals come to us in a variety of ways, from Good Samaritans bringing stray cats into our Animal Support Center to our dedicated Humane Agents rescuing dogs, cats, rabbits, pigs and more to our partner shelters throughout Ohio transferring dogs to us through our EmBARK program. No matter how they come to us, our entire team of staff and volunteers provide them with the veterinary care, socialization, and treats they need to ensure they are happy, healthy and ready to find their new homes! Your gift makes this work possible and will help save the lives of so many animals this year. Thank you Hatfield Subaru for your support. We are so grateful!

Tricks N' Treats: Pet Adoption & Appreciation  –  Julie S

We were lucky enough to partner with Grateful Hearts Senior Dog Rescue from Chillicothe, Ohio on Saturday, October 24th for our Tricks N' Treats pet adoption & appreciation event. Grateful Hearts specializes in rescuing dogs from abusive situations or from euthanasia at high-kill shelters across the nation. They believe that every dog deserves to live a happy, healthy life until its natural end. We were joined by 4 of their loving, adoptable dogs and by the Columbus branch of BarkBox, who supplies boxes of high-quality dog products delivered to customers monthly. Dog friendly prizes were raffled off with all proceeds benefitting the ASPCA. Grateful Hearts walked away with several pet supply donations and some monetary donations and 1 of the 4 dogs was adopted. Ari, a senior Chihuahua and the longest resident at Grateful Hearts, finally found her forever home with customer, Carolyn.

Wagfest  –  Mike P

Hatfield Subaru in Columbus, Ohio was one of the main sponsors for the annual WAG, A Dog-Friendly Festival held Saturday, August 22 at Prairie Oaks Metro Park. The free festival featured many dog-related exhibits and activities, dozens of vendors with product samples and treats and several dog rescue groups and organizations with animals for prospective dog owners to adopt. The event provided dogs and their owners a unique opportunity to get valuable pet information, products and view demonstrations and performances.

Adopt A project  –  Whitney S

This upcoming school year will be my 5th year teaching at Franklin Heights High School as an Intervention Specialist. I will be teaching resource room English this year (which is a smaller class for kids who need a bit more support than the regular education classroom can provide). I will have the seniors this year, and was planning on implementing a senior project in which students would be required to research career fields, build portfolios, make meaningful contacts with potential employers, and complete community service (in an area of interest if at all possible). I was thrilled to hear that Hatfield had chosen to support my students and I; I will now be able to provide the supplies for my students to create long lasting portfolios and overall, give them the tools that they will need to obtain and keep a job in an area of interest after high school. I will also be able to buy the supplies that I need for literacy stations that I plan on using not only with the seniors, but with the sophomore class that I have as well. Many students are performing at different levels, and stations will allow them to work independently on goals specific to their needs while I work either one-on-one or in small groups with students. Having funds available will make this process much easier, and I think much more effective! We have some amazing kids at Franklin Heights, and I am so thankful to have the funds to make this year even more successful! I can't thank Subaru enough!

Share The Love At Its Finest  –  Haley D

The decision for us at Hatfield Subaru to select Nationwide Children's Hospital for our Share The Love Hometown Charity was simple. We raised nearly $13,000 to benefit the children who have been stricken with life-threatening illnesses. As we have an associate who has a child at our dealership who suffered through leukemia, we felt obligated to Share The Love with Nationwide Children's Hospital and look forward to continuing this great relationship into the future.
