The 2020 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.

Pets

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. 

Environment

Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.

Since 2018, Subaru has partnered with TerraCycle.  Participating Subaru retailers collect hard-to-recycle trash that was headed to local landfills. We collect approximately 2 tons of this hard-to-recycle trash monthly, which will be converted to furnishings and other usable items and donated locally.

Education

It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.

Since 2015 Subaru, in partnership with the American Association for the Advancement Science, donated over 277,600 award-winning science books.  In addition, through our partnerships with Staples and Adoptaclassroom.org we supported teachers and students with donations of S400,000 in gift cards and school supplies. 

Community

In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.

In 2020, Subaru and its retailers made a donation to Feeding America to provide 50 million meals to help feed people in need during the COVID-19 crisis,* making meals available at 199 local food banks across the country.
*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks. 

Health

We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.

Since 2016, Subaru and its retailers have partnered with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to donate over 167,000 blankets and 21,500 arts & crafts kits and reached nearly 150,000 patients in more than 780 hospitals nationwide. 

How is Jensen Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve it as well.

Jensen Subaru helps Hope Center  –  Gary B

The Hope Center opened in January 2020. Jensen Subaru started helping before the Hope Center even opened in the fall of 2019 with a food drive and providing cloth grocery bags to encourage food donations. When the Covid 19 pandemic hit in March the number of people needing food assistance doubled and the Hope Center is now serving in excess of 400 households per week. Jensen Subaru has continued support for the entire year, responding positively to any and all requests for help from the Hope Center. Jensen Subaru has encouraged employees to help as volunteers, donate food, and the dealership has hosted food drives to promote community awareness. Jensen has also provided transportation and repair service as needed. Jensen Subaru goes above and beyond Sharing the Love and working to reduce food insecurity in the area.


Jensen Subaru support of Hope Center  –  Gary B

This week the Hope Center received the following handwritten note. Thanks to the generous support of Jensen Subaru the Hope Center has been able to purchase food to assist families in a difficult time. "I just want to say thank you for all the groceries we have received. My husband has Alzheimer's and we are on a fixed income. We just moved here in November and we are broke and need help. Someone recommended the Hope Center to us. We will never be able to repay you for your kindness and generosity shown to us. God Bless You All"


An unexpected blessing  –  Robin M

One of our staff people knew the owner of Jensen Subaru. We were all familiar with the Share the Love program and how incredible it was. We were able to make the connection and be chosen as a recipient of this program. The timing was perfect, as we are a domestic violence shelter, and we had seen a dramatic increase in our census. This gift went directly to help those in need that were fleeing violence in their homes. It was an unexpected blessing, and the money went a long way!


Jensen Supporting Women and Families  –  Susie E

Jensen Dealerships has been a valued partner with our organization for many years. Bob Jensen has a hugely generous heart and desires to make a difference for good in his community, which means he not only supports us, but he supports numerous non-profits in our area. Jensen Dealerships knows the value of strong families which is why he has given his support to our parenting program and our pregnancy care services. A particular client of ours, enrolled in our parenting classes, shared how she had had to raise her siblings when she was young, as her parents were addicted to drugs. When she became pregnant, she was terrified about being a mom. One day after meeting with her mentor and watching a lesson on parenting essentials, she gratefully shared, "I am so thankful for this program. I did not think I could do this since I had no role model in being a mom. Thank you for giving me the tools to raise our son to become a contributing member of our community. And thank you for allowing me to 'spend' my earned points on supplies I need for him." This is what Jensen Dealerships in Sioux City is committed to - giving individuals a hand-up to better their situation for themselves and their families, and providing the tools necessary to aid in their success. We are so grateful for their support. Susie Edgar Executive Director, Her Health Women's Center


A little meant a lot  –  Eliese H

I am in the middle of a nasty divorce. My husband of 44 years kept taking the keys to my vehicle away and telling me to walk. That's when I decided to buy my first car all by myself. I went onto Jensens of Sioux City's website and found the car I liked. My sales person found me the exact color and extras I wanted, the loan officer made loan process so simple and informative and the manager made sure I had no questions that went unanswered. Everyone was thanking me and all I wanted to do was hug them all. When I drove off I got 2 blocks away and started crying and had to pull over. That was the start of ME becoming the stronger new me. THANK YOU

Share the Love to Share the Smiles!!  –  Sarah M

At Camp High Hopes, we are thrilled Jensen Subaru chose us as the 2018/2019 Share the Love recipient! Jensen Subaru does so much for the community and we are proud to be a part of that. It's so heartwarming to see a local business donating back to the community that supports them. This Share the Love gift will be used to directly benefit our campers enrolled in 2019 Summer Sleep Away Camp programs. It will help to cover the cost of things like adapted activities, specialized equipment, healthy meals, medical supplies, and transportation. It allows campers to experience things they've never had a chance to before! Thank you, Jensen Subaru, for helping enrich the lives of people with disabilities in Siouxland! You have given campers life-changing opportunities and have helped Camp High Hopes to share the smiles with our amazing campers!


Subaru's Loves to Care Program  –  Keena R

On behalf of LLS, we would like to Thank Jensen Subaru for this continued partnership with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the local cancer center. On June 13th, 2018, Jensen Subaru staff presented June E. Nylen Community Cancer center with 80 blankets, care cards and 10 craft kits. Jensen Subaru and the Nylen Community Cancer staff have a great relationship as this is the second year for the deliveries of blankets and just this last year they donated $6,000 to the cancer center from their Share the Love Program. LLS looks forward to continuing this partnership with both entities and is Thankful for all the work done by Subaru!


Share the Love with the Nylen Cancer Center  –  Barb F

We thank Jensen Subaru in Sioux City for their generous donation of over $6000 to be used for technology here at the June E. Nylen Cancer Center with the "Share the Love" program. Between the months of November 17th to January 2018, customers who bought a new Subaru could choose to donate to the local charity with the dealership; donating $400 from each sale. For the Cancer Center, it provides the opportunity to fund new technology for their patients. “Everyone has been touched by cancer in one way or another, and without local community support like Subaru we wouldn't be able to do the things that we do to support our patients and families, it's mission critical to have gifts like this and we are just very thankful to Subaru for reaching out to us and selecting us to be the love campaign charity,” said Karen Van De Steeg with June E. Nylen Cancer Center. Thank you Subaru!

Jensen Subaru Partners with LLS  –  Keena R

On July 19, 2017 LLS and Jensen Subaru staff delivered 80 blankets, care cards and 10 craft kits to June E Nylen Cancer Center in Sioux City, Iowa. The staff at the Cancer Center was extremely touched and excited about the partnership. They also mentioned how appreciative they were that all the blankets were pre-wrapped, and in great storage boxes making it convenient for the hospital. While on the visit, I also learned that Jensen Subaru choose the Cancer Center as their hometown charity, and is going to continue the partnership with them helping the cancer patients. Tracie Blatchford, from Jensen Subaru, also mentioned “That all of the employees have been touched by cancer in some way, and she hopes we can continue this partnership both with LLS and the Cancer Center.”
