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.

Brown's Manassas Subaru Helps Clear The Shelters  –  Patrick H

Brown's Manassas Subaru Helps Clear The Shelters

Thanks Brown's Manassas for Sharing Hope & Warmth!  –  Jenny H

Thanks Brown's Manassas for Sharing Hope & Warmth!

Novant Health was incredibly excited to welcome Brown’s Manassas Subaru to their hospital on Friday, July 20th. It was going to be Brown’s Manassas third time delivering blankets at Novant Health, but the first time delivering in their brand new space. This space had been under construction in past years that Brown’s Manassas had delivered blankets to patients. After taking a group photo, Kelly Persons, Director of the hospital foundation, gave the Brown’s Manassas Subaru team a tour. We started out in the new lobby and Kelly explained that not only was the new lobby more visually appealing but it also provided much more privacy and comfort for patients. Kelly then took the group to the reflection room and new healing garden, explaining how important having a calming space like that is for patients. Towards the end of the tour, they took us back to the in-patient infusion unit, where Kelly shared that many patients come there to get great use out of the donated blankets from Subaru. One of the nurses on the unit mentioned that being able to provide that little bit of extra warmth to patients goes a really long way. The Brown’s Manassas Subaru team really showed how much they love to care about patients in their own backyard.


Brown's Manassas Subaru and Cougar Elementary  –  Patrick H

Brown's Manassas Subaru and Cougar Elementary

Brown’s Manassas Subaru has collaborated with Cougar Elementary since 2014 to help students reach their highest potential. Cougar Elementary is a Title 1 school in Manassas Park, Virginia with a devoted staff that is challenged by limited resources. Title 1 schools cater specifically to children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging academic standards. Brown’s Manassas Subaru sponsors an annual book drive and color walk, which is the school’s largest fundraiser. The color walk helps to raise funds to kick off the academic year. The holidays can be a difficult time for many families and we embrace the opportunity to spread love and holiday cheer throughout the community. Last year, we volunteered to supply and serve hot chocolate and snacks to student and staff carolers who ended their tour at the home of a student recently diagnosed with cancer. The family was happy to report as of September 2017 that he is doing great – a recent physical indicated his height, weight and health were normal compared to other children his age! Each year, the school holds a fundraiser to ensure every student receives a gift for the holidays. It is with this spirit that Brown’s Manassas Subaru has been so happy to contribute for the last three years. We are also extremely grateful to the wonderful faculty and staff. In 2015 we provided holiday coffee mugs filled with Starbucks gift cards, chocolates and candy canes. Last year, we did matching shirts for everyone to wear throughout the year. This year, after discussing with the Principal, we are going to deliver Tumblers packed with goodies to each team member of Cougar Elementary. We must remember and appreciate the commitment, love and compassion that they give their students each and every day. Teachers in Title 1 schools are often forgotten and do not receive the praise and gratitude they deserve. Each year Brown’s Manassas Subaru shows support and reminds the staff how valued they are by providing delicious desserts and beverages for the Teacher Appreciation Luncheon. This year we are pleased to sponsor the Cougar Elementary Bucket Filler of the Month program that spotlights a teacher who consistently shares his or her devotion with students and fellow team members. There is a trophy display in the main office and each month Brown’s Manassas Subaru will present a Bucket Filler of the Month trophy with a staff member’s name, along with a gift card to show our appreciation. Brown’s Manassas Subaru is extremely proud to be a part of the Cougar Elementary family and their mission to educate, inspire and encourage the students to strive for a successful future! This is the very least we could do to give back to our community.

Cougar Elementary and Brown's Manassas Subaru

We’ve continued our wonderful partnership with Cougar Elementary. We spread some holiday cheer this year by providing and serving hot chocolate and snacks to the students and staff one evening as they set out for a night of caroling on their way to a student’s house who was battling cancer. It was certainly a memorable experience to be a part of such a special evening. Along with our donation for the students of Cougar Elementary, our gift for the faculty and staff was shirts for everyone so they would all match for various events throughout the year. For Teacher Appreciation week this year, we again provided the dessert and drinks for their luncheon and we had a great opportunity to spend some quality time in a few classroom. During this year’s Subaru Loves the Earth campaign, we were able to team up with the Pre-K students to really get a nice garden growing. It was wonderful to introduce such an important part of our lives to them. We look forward to the upcoming year and continuing our Love Promise with the Cougar Elementary family!


Older American Picnic | Brown's Manassas Subaru  –  Patrick H

Older American Picnic | Brown's Manassas Subaru

Brown’s Manassas Subaru decided to show our love for the older members of our community by participating in the Prince William Area Agency on Aging “Older American Picnic” held locally. It was great to see everyone with their Brown’s Manassas Subaru tote bags as they enjoyed a day of fun, good food and entertainment. After being approached on the showroom floor by one of our guests during our Subaru Loves the Earth initiative, and discussing our partnership with Cougar Elementary, we felt compelled to encompass all ages in our Love Promise so we started looking into ways to support our adult community along with our children. After all, everyone loves spending time in their gardens! Furthermore we felt it was important to show our love to the Literacy Volunteers of America – Prince William as Platinum Sponsors of their Food for Thought Dinner and Trivia night. They do great work locally to promote literacy within the adult community and we’re honored to be affiliated with such a wonderful and necessary initiative. Brown's Manassas Subaru was proud to be a Platinum Sponsor for the second year in a row and show support for adult literacy at the Prince William Food For Thought dinner and trivia night. In the photo from left to right is George Kerr, Board Secretary, along with Manassas Subaru team Meredith Eden, Tracy and James Turner, Eric and Nicole Demby.


Brown's Manassas Subaru Loves to Care!  –  Jenny H

Brown's Manassas Subaru Loves to Care!

On July 10th, Honored Hero and Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma survivor, Rich Zavadowski welcomed Patrick Hall and Saugata Mukherjee of Brown’s Manassas Subaru at Novant Health UVA Health System. As Novant nurses picked up a few blankets from the 80 delivered that day (along with 10 arts and craft kits, and dozens of messages of hope for patients), they commented on how soft and warm they felt, and how excited they were to be able to give these to patients as they received treatment. Kelly Persons, director of Novant Health’s foundation, shared with Patrick and Saugata how appreciative the patients would be for the blankets. She later told us that, “It will be so meaningful to our cancer patients to know that they are thought of by the folks in our local Subaru dealerships. Through the Subaru Loves to Care donations, our cancer patients at Novant Health UVA Health System are being cheered on, with blankets and care kits, during their journey to good health!” Rich echoed similar thoughts and told us that the value of a blanket is so important to patients for many reasons. He told us that not only do the blankets help patients stay warm, but also give them hope. They let patients know that people in the community truly care about them and their health.

Subaru and NWF Love the Earth!

The VPI Preschool garden has brought so much excitement to our students. They have been observing how plants start out as seeds and grow with the help of soil, water, and sun! It has been a wonderful hands-on experience to bring life into our playground. The students helped with digging, planting, watering and even saying kind and encouraging words to take care of our plants. Overall, the whole process has been a memorable and continual hands-on learning experience that has been enjoyed by all!

Project Hero  –  Nicole S

Project Hero

On May 30, Brown's Manassas Subaru had the pleasure to be a part of Project Hero - a program committed to helping to improve the physical and mental well-being of injured veterans by offering rehabilitation through cycling. They were grateful for the opportunity to provide lunch for all of the riders as they rode through Manassas as part of their 400 mile challenge from Washington DC to Virginia Beach. In addition to our veterans (who we thank once again for their service for our country), they had appearances by Congress woman Barbara Comstock, Joe Koch from Wanada, the Vice Mayor of the City of Manassas, Councilman Marc Aveni, in addition to the Brown's CEO, Danny Legge. It was a wonderful event and a true highlight of the 2017 year. They were so thrilled to have had a chance to be a part of it.

Brown’s Manassas Subaru Loves Cougar Elementary

We must recognize the importance of investing in tomorrow, today. This is exactly why Brown’s Manassas Subaru has partnered with our local Title I School, Cougar Elementary in Manassas Park, VA. What started with a $250 holiday gift card years ago, to ensure every student had a gift under the tree, has blossomed into our Subaru Love Promise. We recognize the importance of nurturing our community through the educational development of our youth. Over the past few years, we have committed our love to the students and staff of Cougar Elementary. In addition to our holiday donations, we have continued to work closely with Cougar Elementary throughout the year in various ways. Last September, we proudly sponsored the annual Cougar Color Walk which serves as the school’s main fall fundraiser. This past holiday season we spread a little cheer and presented the entire Cougar Elementary staff with mugs filled with chocolates, candies, and Starbucks gift cards. During February and March, we held a book drive and donated a wide variety of books to the school library. We also participated in the Cougar Elementary Teacher Appreciation Week by supplying chips and soda for their luncheon. Additionally, we sent all of the Administrative Staff to a local restaurant for lunch! We enjoy fulfilling our Subaru Love Promise with Cougar Elementary and will continue to do what we can to positively impact our community!
