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 Milea Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Milea Subaru Creates Happy Tails - Lisa B  –  Lisa B

Each year, Muddy Paws Rescue works to save thousands of pups in need through foster-based care. We partner with our local animal shelters here in NYC, as well as with shelters in the south to help alleviate those areas facing unprecedented amounts of pet homelessness and overpopulation. We rely on the generosity of our volunteers and incredible partners like Milea Subaru of the Bronx to do this by intaking, caring for, and ultimately placing thousands of animals in forever homes each year. In October 2020, we were incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to partner with Milea Subaru for Subaru's National Make A Dog's Day initiative. Through the program, Milea Subaru made a generous donation in honor of pups who found their forever home that month. Thank you, Milea Subaru! Your generosity means that adorable pups like Milton, who first came into our care in May 2020, get the second chance they deserve to find their forever home. A 2 year-old terrier mix, in need of experienced and patient adopters, Milton had a hard time finding the perfect fit, but we knew his forever family was out there somewhere. Thanks to Milea Subaru's support, Milton finally found his family in October. His doting parents said "We could not be happier with our newest addition to our family! We love him so much already!" After almost 6 months in our care, we're so grateful to be able make his happy tail possible! Thank you!

The Glory of Suburu Comfort  –  Ann A

My dog is name Blaze, and no matter what plush we gave him he didn’t want until he got a Suburu Accent plush. He love it more then the Forester. He loves taken it for a play outside everyday. One day he lost it. My son has the same two on his bed. He went into his room and took just the Suburu Accent. How he knew the difference I don’t know. I can’t tell what it is about the blue accent but thank you for making them. I have picture of Blaze the pug.

Our Subaru Book Fairies  –  Crissy B

What a priceless and memorable moment it was when a fourth grade class at PS 14 Q in Corona opened up a box from Subaru and noticed what was inside. They were so delighted to see hard covered storybooks just for them. Every student was able to have his/her own copy. I want to thank Richard Spaziante for Subaru for his thoughtful donation of books to our school, PS 14 Q The Fairview School in Corona. The books will be used by the classroom teachers to help drive instruction. They were such good quality books, with such rich stories, that our students will be driven through rigorous tasks while exploring and learning. Once again, I thank you for your generosity and your thoughtfulness.

Milea Subaru Spreads Love and Warmth to Patients  –  Monica J

On Tuesday, August 13th the New York City Chapter and the Milea Subaru team had the pleasure of delivering 80 blankets and 50 arts & craft kits to New York Presbyterian as part of the Subaru Loves To Care program. These comforting gifts were accompanied by personalized messages of hope written by the customers and staff of Milea Subaru team.During the visit, we had the opportunity to connect with one of the Patient Services Coordinators along with a Nurse Manager. They shared with us how important these blankets are to the patients and how meaningful it is to them. It allows them to feel that they are supported by so many people and organizations. The unit in which she works has patients of a variety of ages who bring their families along to treatment at times. The arts & crafts kits are able to be given to children of these families and allow for a comfort during what can often be a difficult time. Patients appreciate receiving our blankets because of the great quality and how different they are from the hospital blankets that they are offered. These blankets provide warm and love which means the world to both the patients and the staff.This was such an incredible experience and we are so proud to partner with Subaru to spread hope, love and warmth to those fighting cancer, across the country and right here in the New York City community.

Milea Subaru Grants Life-Changing Wishes  –  Colleen L

Every 20 minutes a child is diagnosed with a critical illness. Every one of these kids needs a wish to give them strength and help them heal. The amazing wish grantors at Milea Subaru partnered with Make-A-Wish to raise over $30,000 to grant wishes in Metro New York, transforming the lives of children in the fight of their lives. A wish isn't just a nice, heartwarming experience. It's a necessity that gives kids the mental stamina to face their illness and fight it. Make-A-Wish is incredibly grateful for the team at Milea Subaru for their amazing support of wish kids everywhere!

Milea Subaru Spreads Love and Warmth to Patients  –  Michelle S

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society – New York City Chapter was delighted to partner with Milea Subaru of the Bronx for the Subaru Loves to Care program to deliver care packages full of warmth and words of hope to patients receiving treatment at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Oncology Treatment Center. We had the opportunity to visit one patient, Phillip, who has been battling cancer for a number of years. Despite all that he has been through, he has such a positive attitude. It was truly inspiring to meet Phillip and his wife that day, and we were honored to be able to give him a small gesture of kindness. Thank you, Subaru, for partnering with LLS to help us bring love and warmth to those who need it the most.

Milea Subaru’s New Pet Owner Donation !  –  Anthony V

The team at Milea Subaru reached out to me to ask if we’d like to receive a donation! Their staff brought us a whole bunch of “New Pet Owner” kits filled with all sorts of pet toys and supplies like treats,leashes, food dishes, bandanas, and squeaky toys. We’ve been handing them out to every person that adopts an animal from us and people have been so happy to receive them! It’s been great because people coming in and adopting a cat or dog are already so happy to be saving an animal’s life and bringing it home to their family, so when they receive the box of supplies they can’t believe it!The Yonkers Animal Shelter is very thankful to Milea Subaru for their generosity this holiday season and so are all of our animals! It’s really nice to see a business like Milea Subaru going out of their way to make this happen and I think it truly shows a sense of community and caring. Thank you!

Helping our Community Together  –  Evelyn P

At Milea Auto Group we are proud to continue to serve the New York City area for over 30 years. Our family owned and operated dealership prides itself on offering exceptional service that has our customers coming back to us for life. As a long standing member of the community, we have seen firsthand the amount of effort it takes for our area to grow and thrive. That is why nothing gives us greater gratification than giving back to the community that has given so much to us. We are fortunate to partner with Subaru because they share those same values that we hold dear to our heart. Through the Subaru Love Promise program we are able to make a direct impact on our community. In the past year we have made contributions to a variety of local charities, hospitals and schools that we care about. We went to our local elementary school, P.S. 14, to drop off school supplies and books. We donated to the local Make A Wish Foundation. We went to NY Presbyterian to hand out blankets to children going through chemotherapy. At Milea Subaru we have learned that small contributions can have a big impact on somebody’s life. That is why we will continue to Share the Love throughout our community. We do this because we believe it is important to do our part in making a positive impact in the world, and it gives us great pride to know our customers feel the same way!
