Love Promise Stories from Subaru of Puyallup

Subaru and Subaru of Puyallup 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

Supporting our Local Food Banks - Shawn M

Our business leaders are truly the great patrons in our community, for two reasons. One, companies like Harnish Auto Family and Subaru of Puyallup provide high-value jobs to hundreds of families in our region. Two, they selflessly give resources to financially support our neighbors in need. Great jobs reduce the need for a food bank. Great food banks connect clients to great jobs. As apart of the November Food Drive, Subaru of Puyallup and the entire Harnish Auto Family were able to donate over 13,000 pounds of food to the Puyallup Food Bank!

School Supplies Fundraiser 2022 - Melissa P

This August, with the support of our customers we were able to fundraise for and donate school supplies to local teachers through DonorsChoose. "Thank you so much Subaru of Puyallup for fully funding this project to give my classroom extra options for our small reading groups. I am excited to be able to offer all levels of students beginning, middle, or high, an option to work on during groups to best support what academic skill they are focused on. Learning through games seems to make my students feel like they are playing and when they get to "play" they love learning, which makes my job much easier! Thanks for your generous support to the students, classroom, and myself! I appreciate you very much!"

PTSD Foundation: Race for a Soldier - Leslie M

Each year, the Permission to Start Dreaming Foundation puts on their annual Race for a Soldier 5K and Half Marathon event. One of the most impactful moments for the runner though exhausted but exhilarated, is to be greeted with smiles and congratulations by our wonderful partners and their volunteer squad from Subaru of Puyallup. Joy spreads across their face as they are handed their very own finisher dog tag medal and much-needed bottle of water. There is something pretty special about being greeted by one's community peers after achieving such a monumental effort for a great cause! The Subaru of Puyallup team is a force multiplier and the Race for a Soldier would not be the same without them! - Leslie Mayne, PTSD Foundation

Kiwanis Club "Cruise in For Youth" Car Show - Bill H

Each year, the Kiwanis Club of Daffodil Valley hosts a “Cruise in For Youth” car show where the proceeds go to local high school scholarships. This year we gave away four scholarships, three towards college and one towards a trade school. Our classic car show each year showcases a variety of cars with items donated from local companies. This year we’re happy Harnish Auto Family got involved – they provided 10 Harnish Auto Family buckets that had a Subaru blanket, a Chevrolet Buick GMC grill set, a Volkswagen phone charger and the necessary items for washing a car. We used these 10 buckets for door prizes and for auction items. Subaru of Puyallup also donated a swag bag full of cool Subaru items that we also used as an auction item that included a Subaru hat, coffee cup, Thule backpack, coasters, pins and air fresheners! We appreciated and valued Subaru of Puyallup’s support and we feel that their donations helped with making the event a success, which was greatly appreciated! Thank you for supporting our local youth and we look forward to the 19th Annual ‘Cruise in For Youth’ Car Show – coming again in 2023!

Subaru of Puyallup Supports Washington's National Park Fund - Laurie W

Subaru of Puyallup has been supporting Washington’s three national parks – Mount Rainier, North Cascades, and Olympic National Parks – through Washington's National Park Fund for years. The Subaru team shows their love of the earth, of learning, and of helping by giving to the parks’ highest priorities. Most recently they proved their love for both Mount Rainier National Park and Olympic National Park by supporting these parks’ night skies programs. They came together with other park supporters and collectively, everyone’s gifts were MATCHED by a kind donor! Funding provided by Subaru of Puyallup is enabling both parks to launch their night skies programs for the summer of 2022. These programs give visitors the opportunity to look through some VERY high-powered telescopes that bring the planets within reach. Imagine seeing the rings around Saturn. On a dark, clear night up at Rainier’s landmark Paradise you CAN! Imagine seeing the Milky Way from Olympic National Park’s infamous Hurricane Ridge? Thanks in part to Subaru of Puyallup, you can see the pink, smoky hues emitted by this “spiral galaxy.” These programs are the result of Subaru of Puyallup stepping up and in with other national park fans to make things happen. Here’s a flat hat ranger salute to our friends at Subaru of Puyallup! Sincerely, thank you!!
