Pets

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. 

Environment

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.

Education

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 Adoptaclassroom.org we supported teachers and students with donations of S400,000 in gift cards and school supplies. 

Community

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. 

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.

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 Hudiburg 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.

The Story about Pizza Dog  –  Robert A

Pizza Dog became a huge part of the Hudiburg Subaru family and we are so happy he found his happy forever home!!


HUDIBURG SUBARU  –  Robert R

My Family has purchased 12 New Subarus from Hudiburg Subaru Starting with former, & hopefully returning soon salesman Paco. Currently working with Nathan & Ryne & Paula from Finance. This is the best combo for leaving happy in a new Subaru. It’s a very simple process. I tell Nathan what I want and he finds it. Ryne tells me how the car works and discusses options to find what is most important as far as accessories so that I feel equipped for what I need the car for. Paula & I catch up on current events in the world and with family and then we make a deal after she find the best possible scenario regarding credit an the loan. I drive away happy. Then repeat it’s that simple. As long as that sales and finance team is working at this dealership it will be my only dealership. Currently the family has 2-2020 Ascents, (touring) 2-2020 Outbacks touring & onyx , a 2020 Forester Sport, 2016 BRZ,& my daily and favorite a 2018 STI slick top. So find the Subaru that is right for you and go to Hudiburg.


Helping Through Love, Kindness, and Attention  –  Tarah W

Tenaciously Teal (T. Teal) has been blessed to have the support of our friend's at Hudiburg Subaru. I was a Hudiburg customer long before the dealership began supporting T. Teal, a nonprofit near and dear to my heart. Through the entire car buying process the dealership provided exceptional service, and I told my husband then that I would be a Hudiburg Subaru customer for life. The core of Tenaciously Teal’s mission has always been to help those in need, while providing, love, community and empowerment to cancer fighters. In 2014, that mission grew to include our Board Designated Fund, established to meet the extenuating financial needs of those fighting cancer who had been unable to receive support elsewhere. Over the years, this fund has assisted fighters with items such as utility bills, hotel stays, medical equipment, and even a therapy dog for an adolescent cancer fighter. Through the generous support from Hudiburg Subaru's Share The Love event we have been able to double the Board Designated Fund the last two years. This month, the fund stepped up to support Jeanette with some basic needs that can be out of reach for many cancer fighters. We received a referral from a hospital social worker for Jeanette, who had been placed on palliative care, or end of life care, to keep her comfortable during the final leg of her fight with cancer. The social worker from the cancer center had requested assistance purchasing a mattress for a hospital bed for Jeanette and stated the hospital bed was being delivered to the patients’ home by Jeanette’s case manager.Upon further investigation we learned that the case manager had not ordered a hospital bed and the wait time would be at least sixty days for the next free one to become available. Jeanette didn’t have 60 days of suffering left in her. She was sleeping on a tiny couch downstairs because she was too weak to make it upstairs to where her bedroom and only bathroom were located.Our Board of Directors jumped into action and approved the rental of a hospital bed, which was delivered the same day. Jeanette wept when she received the bed and expressed how much pain she had been in from awkwardly sleeping on the love seat that was not nearly long enough for her tall frame. Through conversation, we learned she also had a need for adult diapers, bed pads, and medication for bed sores. She also only had one pair of pajamas that were stained and had holes in them from so much wear. Thankfully we were able to help provide supplies to Jeanette as well as a couple new pairs of pajamas and, of course, a few comfy T. Teal shirts. Furthermore, when asked if there was anything else we might be able to help her with she said, “If I had some fresh fruit to make a smoothie that would make me so happy”.Since Jeanette does not have a car it is a six hour round trip via multiple buses to get the groceries and supplies she can afford on her disability income. Jeanette a large supply of fresh and frozen fruit as well as a blender to make smoothies. Jeanette agreed that her story should be shared as an example of the many cancer fighters whose needs continually fall through the cracks. Hurdles such as income level and lack of knowledge regarding the medical system can create difficulty for fighters to advocate for themselves. On behalf of Jeanette and the men and women T. Teal continues to support, I want to say thank you for giving us the opportunity to help them in a tangible way when they had nowhere else to turn, and more importantly, giving us the opportunity to be an advocate for those who need an ally. Your support helped Jeanette’s suffering be a little more manageable through some love, kindness, and attention. Thank you Hudiburg Subaru!

Hudiburg Subaru Loves To Care!  –  Sara M

Hudiburg Subaru Loves to Care! OU Medical Center Adult Oncology. On July 10, 2019 – John Houston, Matt Pringle, and Amanda Boykin of Hudiburg Subaru met Sara Mason, LLS Senior Campaign Manager and Kristi Colclasure, LLS Campaign Manager at the OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to meet with adult oncology patients to bring warmth, love and hope to those affected by blood cancers. Hudiburg Subaru of Oklahoma City loves to support their local community through the Subaru Loves to Care program – focused on making a difference, in partnership with the LLS-Oklahoma Chapter. John Houston was especially excited to be a part of the Subaru Loves to Care blanket delivery, he is a Delivery Specialist at Hudiburg Subaru and is a lymphoma survivor. Houston told LLS, "For the longest time I thought that MS was one of the worst things that I could have even been diagnosed with, I was wrong. In August of 2016 I noticed a spot on the inside of my left arm near my elbow. Two weeks later I saw my doctor and they did a biopsy, which showed I had a rare and aggressive form of lymphoma. I was terrified and thought my world was crashing in around me. As a single parent I was extremely concerned for my children.” John completed a full course of radiation treatment for his lymphoma. After numerous follow up appointments, John’s oncologists and dermatologists confirmed that he was all clear of his cancer. “Now I just see the Dermatologist once a year and will not see the Oncologist unless it’s needed and I hope it never is. I am extremely grateful that my lymphoma presented itself where it did. It humbles me that Subaru is such an active supporter of LLS and the support it provides to others. I am a proud employee of Hudiburg Subaru and very happy to be part of the Subaru family." John Houston, Delivery Specialist, Hudiburg Subaru. The Hudiburg Subaru and LLS Teams were joined by Michele Abbitt, Adult Oncology Manager who had set up seven in-room visits with patients currently battling blood cancer. The team passed out the blankets, message of hope cards from Hudiburg Subaru customers throughout the community and the LLS “Here to Help" palm cards. The palm cards were also placed within the patient areas and shared with all information desks on the Oncology Floor so that patients and their families can learn about the information, educational and support services that LLS provides. It truly was a great way to let patients know that Hudiburg Subaru and people in their community, who they don't even know, support them and are sending wishes of hope, strength and courage as they battle blood cancer.

LLS & Subaru Love to Care  –  Libby K

It was a day of celebration and laughter as employees from Hudiburg Subaru and staff from the Oklahoma Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society delivered blankets, craft kits and care cards to patients at OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City. Subaru employees were able to interact with patients currently in treatment while delivering blankets and brought smiles to their faces as they shared the inspirational words from their customers. The patients were inspired by the messages of love and hope left by Subaru employees at the Hudiburg location. The execution of this partnership made a real impact in the lives of patients currently in treatment.
