We're honored to receive the 2018 Subaru Love Promise Customer and Community Commitment Award.

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.

PMC “Closer By the Mile”

Dear Scott, I would like to thank you for your generous donation & continued support for my PMC ride. It is greatly appreciated. I often tell people riding 192 miles is the easy part of the PMC, the fundraising is the more daunting task. That task becomes easier with the support of local businesses like Long Subaru! Thank you again for your support! We are getting “Closer By the Mile”

Long Subaru & CMAA partner for the BGCWD  –  Scott B

Long Subaru & CMAA partner for the BGCWD

Long Subaru is pleased to announce a grand total of $8,410 raised for the Boys and Girls Club of Webster Dudley (BGCWD) through a partnership event with the Central Mass Auto Auction (CMAA).“We were able to speak with Luke Semmelrock, CMAA General Manager, and explain the needs of BGCWD,” described Scott Barry, Long Subaru Executive Manager. “It seemed a natural extension of our business relationship to involve CMAA in our events as part of Subaru’s nationwide Love Promise campaign. With both companies dedicated to our local community, the BGCWD was a great choice as the beneficiary.” Mr. Barry has been a BGCWD board member since 2008 and instrumental in instituting several annual events to raise much needed funds and donations for BGCWD.“It was a unique idea, and when Scott approached us about it, we were instantly interested,” said Mr. Semmelrock. Funds were raised by advertising the event auction dates and, on those days, a small donation amount was added to every transaction. Buyers and sellers could opt out, but, as Mr. Barry explains, “There was a huge amount of positive feedback. We even had many who donated more than the designated amount. It was very encouraging to see and hear how much our community appreciates and is willing to support the opportunities provided by BGCWD for our local kids.”

2016 Kids Artistic Revue

Thank you so much for supporting the dancers at the Cathy Taylor School of Dance with your Long Subaru advertisement in our 2016 Dance Recital Program. We greatly appreciate your sponsorship! It is sponsors like you who help make it possible for us to compete at a national competition at Foxwoods Casino this July in the Kids Artistic Revue competition. Being a dancer at the Cathy Taylor School of Dance has taught me so much about being part of a team and has bettered my dancing in so many ways. Each time I head to dance, I feel grateful to be able to do what I love with such wonderful teachers and friends. Many of the lessons I have learned through my dance experiences, such as persistence, determination, being a team player, and self-confidence, are lessons I will use throughout my life.
