The 2020 Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment Award

What is the Subaru Love Promise?

The Subaru Love Promise is just that. A promise. It is a promise to do right by our community of Wayne, NJ and surrounding towns by partnering with nonprofit education, health, community, environment, and animal organizations - to set Subaru apart through our deeds and the deeds of our partners.

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. 


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.


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 we supported teachers and students with donations of S400,000 in gift cards and school supplies. 


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. 


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 Wayne Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Thank you Wayne Subaru for helping our community  –  Stuart S

The Wayne Township Memorial First Aid Squad would like to take this opportunity to thank Wayne Subaru and the Lesko family for their generous donation of a 2019 Subaru to the Squad for their annual Car Raffle. In this time of year when we think of giving and of those in need, Wayne Subaru’s donation contributed to both causes. Not only did this gift enable the Squad to raise $50,000 for the purchase of supplies and equipment, but it enabled the Squad to use these items to help those in need of emergency medical assistance. The Squad is a 100% volunteer organization and must rely on the generosity of its friends and neighbors in the community so it can continue to provide emergency medical services as no cost to those who need them. Once again, the Squad would like to thank the Lesko family and Wayne Subaru for their gift. The Squad wishes everyone a very happy Holiday Season and a very Healthy New Year. -Wayne Township Memorial First Aid Squad

Blanket doantion to Chilton Memorial Hospital  –  Michelle E

Today was the second time that Wayne Subaru donated blankets to Chilton Memorial Hospital. It was an inspiring morning as we got to meet with some the social workers and staff members, as well as, one of the oncologists. While although we were unable to meet with patients directly while we were there, Charles Moltane, the Subaru representative shared a story about why he loves this program so much. He explained that several months after last year's donation visit, he was speaking with someone who attends his church who had been fighting cancer for some time and spoke so highly about how generous and supportive Subaru is by donating these blankets. The man explained that when he received the blanket it brought him warmth and comfort through his treatment. Charles explained that this story alone reminded him how many people they are helping.

Wayne Subaru Loves to Care  –  Charles M

Sometimes it is the little things that can make a huge difference. For the month of June, Wayne Subaru placed cards in our showroom and service waiting area for our customers to write down words of hope to local residents who are battling the horrible effects of cancer. Many people contributed in writing uplifting and encouraging words. At the end of the month all the cards were collected and bundled together with blankets to be donated to cancer patients at the Collins Pavilion at Chilton Medical Center in Pompton Plains, NJ. On Monday, July 25th, the blankets and cards were delivered to the Collins Pavilion by Robert Lesko, III and Charles Moltane from Wayne Subaru. They were well received by the staff who immediately began distributing them to the patients. Wayne Subaru wishes all the best to those of our local community who are facing the challenges of this disease.

West Milford Animal Shelter NJ Dog Walk  –  Gail H

I am a proud owner of a Subaru Outback. I believe this in my 6th one. I purchased this one at Wayne Subaru in NJ. They are friendly and professional and take great care of my car. I am also a volunteer at the West Milford Animal Shelter in NJ. We are not a large shelter but we pride ourselves on the care we give our animals, the shelter's cleanliness and our adoption rate which runs between 80 to 90%. We are 100% volunteer so any money from our fundraisers go directly to the care of our animals. In October 2014, we had our annual dog walk. We give out prizes and goodie bags of which all items are donated by local businesses. I was getting my car serviced at Wayne Subaru and approached them about possibly making a donation. They called me back quickly and very enthusiastically donated 300 Frisbees to be given away to the participants. They even took the time to design them with paw prints and the Subaru logo. They were more than kind. As I mentioned we are not a large shelter so we do not have the resources for large fundraising events. Therefore all donations are appreciated. Thanks Wayne Subaru for your help and kindness toward our animals. By the way, the shelter and surrounding communities are located in the Ramapo Mountains in Northern NJ. Driving around you see many a Subaru. There are four on my block alone!
