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.

Total donations to teachers: $92,233
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.

Make A Wish, helping to grant 610 wishes in the U.S.

Each Christmas holiday the Humane Society's Pets Fur People is blessed to be one of the local charities to benefit from the Subaru Share the Love Campaign.

This fun-filled holiday fundraiser creates awareness for our organization and draws customers to the dealership who otherwise may never visit Peltier Subaru. We are made to feel at home as we prepare for Pet Pictures with Santa Paws at the dealership. Mike Terry and his entire staff are so welcoming to our staff and guests and open their doors to all the dogs, horses and goats that come to visit Santa Claus and have their pictures taken with the jolly old man!


For the Love of Reading  –  Kristine D

As a librarian, I am always working on expanding our collection with books and materials that will be engaging for teens. Most non fiction is read for assignments and projects, not for pleasure. Thanks to an incredible donation from Peltier Subaru, this can definitely change. General Manager Michael Terry and his awesome crew showed up with hundreds of interesting titles for our students! Their generous donation will reach so many of our teen readers and help support literacy and the love of reading. Thank you Peltier Subaru!

Santa Paws  –  Gayle H

Peltier Subaru hosted the Humane Society’s Pets Fur People’s Pet Pictures with Santa Paws Saturday, November 19, 2016.

We have an excellent relationship with Peltier Subaru. In the summer they host our Dirty Dog wash and owner Robert Peltier donates $25 for every dog we wash – this summer we washed 161 dirty dogs!

Bark For Life 2016  –  Martha T

Smith County Relay For Life had their 2016 Bark For Life at the Peltier Subaru Dog park! It was a perfect setup. The whole staff at the dealership was great! The encouragement from the staff was fantastic! We had lots of venders there set up under the trees. The dogs had a great time too with games and lots of pats. Michael and Jereamy and the whole staff were helpful every step of this event.


For the Love of Educating Students  –  Helene C

Every year for the past 15 years as a public school teacher, I begin the fall semester by digging into the depths of my own pockets. The money (and possible bonus lent) that I find is used to fund supplies for my classroom and help needy students who can't afford to buy supplies on their own. This year, however, was much different. Michael Terry, the General Manager at Peltier Subaru, reached out to me offering a donation of $500 to supplement the beginning of the year's costs. With the help of Subaru, I was able to equip more of my teenagers with the supplies they so desperately needed. His donation also helped to purchase necessities in the classroom. Thank you to the Peliter Subaru family for supporting local educators, students, and their needs.


Turkey Trot at Peltier Subaru  –  Michelle P

The 2014 12th annual Turkey Trot was held on Thanksgiving day in the streets of Tyler. Peltier Subaru donated $5,000 dollars to help fundraise this special event that our community looks forward to. This year's charities were Refuge of Light and Meals on Wheels. We at Peltier Subaru were excited to not only encourage exercise and health through supporting this event, but to also spread awareness of these two charities. We were so glad to see the large turnout and participation.
