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 Valenti Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve it as well.

Love Promise Stories from Valenti Subaru

Subaru and Valenti Subaru 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

Town of Westerly is Lucky to have Valenti Subaru!  –  Suzanne G

On behalf of the Town of Westerly I would like to say that Valenti Subaru is an exemplary business that goes way above and beyond to support our community. I have been so impressed and grateful for the many demonstrations of support they have shown our citizens, our non-profits and the Town itself. From providing bikes to needy families to supporting the local Lions Club and Rotary Club to being a major supporter of the Towns 350 anniversary this year, they are a tremendous asset. The owners should be commended on encouraging their staff to get involved, make a difference and give back. They genuinely care. Share the love is not a tag line or motto. It’s a way of everyday business. We thank them and we appreciate them.

monumental support to Westerly 350 Anniversary  –  Lisa K

Westerly Rhode Island celebrated its 350th anniversary this year and executed a tremendous series of large scale events. Valenti Subaru was a major sponsor and their support made a number of free community events possible including an Olde Tyme Fair, Light Parade, Time Capsule event, unity bell ringing event, several movies and more. They even sponsored a gigantic cake for the fair that was served free to everyone!! It was about 12 feet long and had 3 d town buildings on it. At every Westerly 350 event there were volunteers from Valenti Subaru to promote, help set up, attend, clean up and more. Their team is awesome and their culture of community support is second to none. We are so grateful for their generosity, their hands on approach to volunteerism, their energy and their steadfast leadership. Thank you for your consideration! Cheers to making this an amazing year!! Lisa Konicki Westerly 350 Committee.

Best Car Dealer  –  Louis C

We had such a great experience with Valenti. Carlos Pineda is our favorite Subaru guy. Hands down. He made car buying easy and pleasurable. This is our second Subaru. Both of them were purchased through Carlos. Everybody at Valenti was friendly and courteous. And we highly recommend them to anybody looking to buy a car.

Subaru Loves to Care-Spreading Hope & Warmth  –  Laura W

Valenti Subaru continued their long standing support of the community by donating warm blankets and message of hope cards to cancer patients at Westerly Hospital on June 27, 2018. Hospital staff were on hand to accept the donations on behalf of the patients from Bruce Marrow, General Sales Manager at Valenti Subaru. Almost everyone walking by knew Bruce by name which is a testament to how much Valenti Subaru makes an impact in the local community. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society thanks Valenti Subaru for their continued partnership!

Spreading Warmth and Love to Cancer Patients  –  Amy H

On 6/29/2017 The team at Valenti Subaru delivered blankets and craft kits to Westerly Hospital as a part of the Subaru Love Promise initiative in partnership with the the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. These items, along with cards of hope from Valenti Subaru clients really do help to spread warmth and love to cancer patients. Thank you Valenti Subaru for your generous donation!

Subaru and NWF Loves the Earth  –  Hilary

Our Wildlife Habitat Garden is part of a maze designed and built by 7th and 8th grade students as our Class Gift to the school. It is 37 feet in diameter and is planted with a variety of perennials, native wildflowers, and herbs. The maze is mulched with pine bark mulch and wood chips from trees cut down nearby during the creation of our school's Garden of Ideas in which the maze is located. At the center of our maze is the beautiful bronze birdbath provided by Subaru, and bird feeders and birdhouses hang within the maze and on posts surrounding our nearby Dahlia Garden. While it is still a work in progress, students, families and school staff have already begun to use the maze garden as a place to explore or just to sit, reflect and enjoy the peace and beauty of nature.

Valenti Subaru assists the Jonnycake Center  –  Bruce M

Valenti Subaru would like to extend a HUGE thank you to all those who donated to the Jonnycake Center during our 2017 Subaru Impreza Launch event.

General Manager Bruce Morrow and his team at Valenti Subaru are proud to continue with the Subaru Love Promise. Every month the team at Valenti Subaru will be working with a local organization in our community to help those in need. The Subaru Love Promise is a commitment Valenti Subaru has made that states: I believe in being more than a Subaru retailer I believe in being part of my community In setting an example. In building life long relationships. And in ensuring that the love is not felt just by our customers, but by all. Not because it is good for business. Because it is the right thing to do.
