The 2018 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.

Over 200 teachers adopted
More than 15,000 students impacts

Community

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

Subaru and Meals on Wheels America worked together to make volunteering easier, by launching a tool called the Meals on Wheels Online Volunteer Drive.

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.

Love Promise Stories from Hassett Subaru

Thank You Hassett Subaru from LLS  –  Jaime L

Thank You Hassett Subaru from LLS

Hasset Subaru joined the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to deliver blankets, craft kits, tote bags and messages of hope from their customers to patients being treated in the Infusion Center at NYU Winthrop Hospital. Matt Fusco from Hasset Subaru met with the clinical nursing staff along with hospital administrators at the outpatient treatment center. The hospital staff shared how comforting it is for the patients they treat to receive such a beautiful gift and were so thrilled to begin giving them to patients that very day. They stated how wonderful it is to be able to give patients such a comforting gift. Most patients are at the treatment center for several hours at a time, and often they are coming in daily for long treatments. They are often feeling cold while receiving their medication and are truly grateful for this donation.


HASSETT SUBARU JOINS PET LOVERS ACROSS LONG ISLAND  –  Liz M

HASSETT SUBARU JOINS PET LOVERS ACROSS LONG ISLAND

Every Spring, animal-rescue advocates, gather to raise a toast, and their voices, in recognition of the selfless, year-round efforts of non-profit rescue organizations, and animal shelters who provide care, hope, and forever homes to the abandoned, abused, and helpless creatures of Long Island— desperate animals who crave only a small morsel of TLC from loving, local families. On April 27th, the annual “Unleash the Love” charitable event was celebrated at the Crest Hollow Country Club, and, as usual, the emotional response produced some smiles, a few tears, and more importantly, plenty of generosity, and support, for the volunteers whose tireless efforts are making a difference in the lives of rescued animals… and the pet-lovers who choose to open their hearts, and share their homes. Of course, the team from Hassett Subaru was on hand to “share the love”, in support of their charitable partner… Pet Peeves— “the voice of L.I. Pets,” and a long-time, non-profit, umbrella organization that raises funds, and awareness, for Long Island’s struggling animal shelters and rescue groups. On behalf of Hassett, Sales Manager, Matt Fusco graciously presented a very large check to the organization in the amount of $40,177— the largest donation in more than three years! General Manager Marc Zergebel, addressed attendees— sharing the dealership’s appreciation, and respect, for the exceptional work of Pet Peeves, their volunteers, and the dedication of founder Janine Dion. He succinctly summed up the mission of Subaru’s “Love Promise”, and how Hassett applies that charitable mission throughout the year. “Like Subaru, we believe in making the world a better place. Our support of Pet Peeves and all of our charities is our way of showing love and respect for our customers, as we strive to make a positive impact in the world. Hassett is not just about selling cars, but how we can give back to the community we serve… in meaningful ways.” In addition to the Zergebel family, and Mr. Fusco, the Hassett Subaru team was represented by Service Director Bob Spalletta, and Tricia Reisig, Subaru District Sales Manager. Each year, Hassett Subaru generously supports a number of charitable causes that benefit from our “Share the Love” Event that runs from November 19th to January 2nd. On behalf of Pet Peeves, and the needy animals they continue to save and protect, Hassett extends a personal “thank you” to the loyal customers who’ve made Hassett Subaru their dealership of choice. For every car that was sold during the “Share-the-Love” Event, $300 was donated directly to one of five charities. That impact continually resounds… throughout the community and beyond. There’s no better way to lend a helping hand… than by treating yourself to the best ride ever… in a fabulous, new Subaru. What’s not to love about that?

Subaru Donation Keeping Patients Warm  –  Jaime L

Subaru Donation Keeping Patients Warm

Thank you to Hassett Subaru who joined the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in visiting NYU Winthrop Hospital to donate 80 blankets and 10 arts and crafts kits to oncology patients being treated at the hospital. In addition, the patients will be receiving care cards with messages of hope from Subaru employees and customers. The physicians and nursing staff at Winthrop were thrilled to receive such a wonderful and generous donation. They explained how patients often are in the hospital for extended periods of time and readmitted throughout the course of their treatment and will really appreciate a nice warm blanket they can have with them during their hospital stay and at home. The arts and crafts kits will also be used as supplies for a support group the staff in the hospital is starting. Thank you Hassett Subaru!


Humanity, Compassion...Yes, It Exists!  –  Lisa D

Humanity, Compassion...Yes, It Exists!

A few years ago, I was given an opportunity to have the job I´ve always wanted. That meant taking a big pay cut. My husband and I discussed ¨the move¨ and we thought, ¨Well, the car is paid off, so go for it!¨As a result, the quality of my life was much improved. Recently, though, my Outback needed a new transmission. I freaked out. Then, I cried. I thought, ¨What are we going to do? Hassett had the answer. Are you ready? You´re NOT going to believe this...they put in a new transmission...AT NO COST!Not even the labor. So, the next time you think about badmouthing dealerships, think about the generosity, kindness, and compassion Hassett Subaru showed me and my husband. Hassett, we are eternally grateful to you. Thanks for helping me keep my dream. Sincerely, Lisa D.

Loving My Crosstrek and Hassett Subaru  –  Renee B

Loving My Crosstrek and Hassett Subaru

I purchased a Crosstrek from Hassett Subaru a few months ago and it was the best decision I ever made. It's the first Subaru I have owned and I can't believe the amazing level of customer service that I have received. I was reading about Subaru's Love Promise and I felt compelled to share my story. I attended an event for Pet Peeves where I saw Hassett Subaru make a very generous donation. They were truly giving back to the community of pet lovers which is not something that happens every day. It was at that moment that I decided to go road test a car since my lease was coming up. The sales person listened to my needs, answered my questions, and helped me figure out what vehicle would best suit me. There was no pressure. I rolled out of the dealership in my new blue Crosstrek and I have been smiling ever since.


Thank you from Winthrop  –  Leanna C

Thank you from Winthrop

On behalf of Winthrop-University Hospital and its Cancer Institute, we can't thank Hasset Subaru and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society enough for their generous donation of beautiful blankets and notes for our patients. As we graciously accepted these beautiful gifts in our newly appointed Infusion Center recently, a patient who was receiving treatment looked on and remarked, "That's so nice of them to think of the patients." We couldn’t agree more. In a world that can sometimes be dark and cold, the warmth and kindness of Hasset Subaru and the Nassau County Chapter of the LLS shines bright. We know that our patients will be deeply touched by your acts of kindness and thank you once again for selecting Winthrop as a recipient of your generosity.


Hassett Subaru and Long Island LLS  –  Jamie G

Hassett Subaru and Long Island LLS

LLS Light The Night Walk staff met with the staff of Winthrop University Hospital Infusion Center in Mineola. The facility itself was beautiful as it is a place separate from the main hospital where patients come in to receive their chemotherapy. The infusion rooms were filled with patients when we arrived, so we knew that the blankets and care cards from Hassett Subaru in Wantagh would go to good use. While meeting with the staff, a patient asked what was going on. She was thrilled to hear that Subaru was doing such philanthropic work as she was a proud Subaru owner herself. The hospital staff was beyond thrilled to receive the blankets and so thankful for Subaru’s generosity. They said they hope to partner with Subaru and LLS and in the future. Later that day, one of the staff members sent us an incredible photo of a patient who received the blanket. It was shared that this patient went home that same day and the blanket put such a smile on her face. It is so heartwarming to hear a story like this and we cannot thank Subaru enough for that.


Hassett Subaru supports Pet Peeves  –  Matt F

Pet Peeves is a volunteer-driven, nonprofit organization that raises funds, and creates awareness, for the work of numerous local animal shelters and rescue groups in both Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Hassett Subaru is proud to be a sponsor and supporter of their mission on behalf of homeless and abused animals. Matt Fusco, Subaru Sales Manager spoke about the ongoing commitment of this popular car-maker. "Everyone at Subaru of America stays true to the Love Promise by partnering with a wide variety of nonprofits and charities. In addition to these partnerships, every year Subaru owners, and retailers join hands in the "Share the Love" event, giving back to charities across the country. Over the past 20 years, Subaru of America has donated over 50 million dollars to causes we care about, and logged over 28,000 volunteer hours.” Lou Evans, General Sales Manager at Hassett, chimed in, "All of the organizations we support have one thing in common: the unwavering dedication to improve the world and the lives of its people." The check of nearly $37,000 that was presented to the Pet Peeves organization will certainly go a long way to improving the lives of the homeless and abused animals that this dedicated non-profit supports.
