The 2020 Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment Award

We've been nationally recognized for our dedication to our community and the Subaru Love Promise.

We're honored to receive the 2020 Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment Award. This award nationally recognizes Subaru retailers who are making the world a better place while demonstrating an outstanding commitment to supporting passions and causes in local communities. These efforts are focused in important areas such as the environment, community, health, education, and pets.

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 by partnering with nonprofit education, health, community, environment, and animal organizations - to set Subaru apart through our deeds and the deeds of our partners. To be unlike any other car company by doing what is right and good, just for the sake of doing it.

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 Freehold 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.

Freehold Subaru Sponsors Center in Asbury Park  –  Father Robert K

The Center in Asbury Park held their Jersey Shore AIDS Walk on October 4, 2020 and with the support and generosity of Freehold Subaru we raised over $33,000! Due to COVID-19, our 2020 fundraisers were cancelled and a large part of our Ryan White funding was cut. This was our singular fundraiser in a year and Freehold Subaru's sponsorship was needed more than ever to help our clients and residents as they navigate this Pandemic. Our priority at the walk was to keep everyone SAFE! The entire event was held outside and we adhered social distancing. All those that participated wore a special Center/Subaru AIDS Walk mask. With Subaru's support we can continue to provide support services for people living with HIV/AIDS. THANK YOU!

FARE Hometown Heroes Walk, Manalapan  –  Jennifer S

A big thank you to Freehold Subaru for being a sponsor of the FARE (Food Allergy Research and Education) Hometown Heroes Manalapan walk for the past 2 years. With the support of Subaru our walk has raised about $30,000 these past two years for FARE. FARE’s Hometown Heroes Community Virtual Walk exists to recognize the courage and determination of food allergy families, and to empower these everyday heroes to end food allergy fears for good. Through widespread fundraising and walks across the country, thousands of families come together to unite behind their commitment to FARE’s mission and raise funds that will change their children’s lives through research, education, advocacy and broad awareness. We are very grateful to have the support of Freehold Subaru.

2015 Center a la Carte  –  Father B

Welcome to Center a la Carte 2015! Or should I say "Center a la Circus" We're really gathering under the Big Top to celebrate another year of being a community of people who realize our connection to one another. In an early "Vision Statement" of The Center, from the very first years we said, We believe that we are all one, that we are brothers and sisters together; we believe that we are responsible for one another and have been sent to care for one another; we believe that in serving one another we become more whole, more complete; we believe that in attempting to heal one another with love we heal ourselves and experience love ourselves; we believe that the time is now to use the energy of goodness and love to turn back the attitudes of fear and separation. This was the early vision that formed The Center and drove us on. And after twenty-three years we are a community of folks dedicated to living our Mission and caring for one another. Of course as usual we thank the many who have made Center a la Circus possible: the restaurants and liquor vendors; our sponsors; the many volunteers who worked hard to make it all happen; and all of you who join under the Big Top. Have Fun and Thanks for being part of the Mission "for living the Vision" for believing in The Center in Asbury Park. Peace, Fr. Bob
