If Subaru is known for one thing outside of producing rugged, reliable, family-friendly vehicles, it’s using its position as an industry leader for philanthropic purposes. This year alone, different branches of the Subaru Love Promise have sponsored and hosted events centered around cleaning up communities, finding homes for frequently ignored pets, and even donated 50 million meals to food shelters across the country.
ASPCA COVID-19 Relief & Recovery Initiative has provided $7.5 million in emergency relief to help pet owners and shelters navigate the pandemic; Emergency relief grant funding made possible in part by $500,000 donation from Subaru of America, Inc.
Earlier this year, Subaru of America, Inc. partnered with the ASPCA to distribute nearly $700,000 in grant funding to support virtual adoption events hosted by animal welfare organizations and local Subaru retailers across the country. Recognizing that a critical level of support is still urgently needed, Subaru is furthering its commitment to animals in need this holiday season by contributing over $500,000 to the ASPCA COVID-19 Relief & Recovery Initiative. This collective generosity is made possible by the Subaru Share the Love® Event.
The Camden-based carmaker said the new program, created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the related use of items like disposable masks and gloves, expands on its current partnership with the Trenton-based firm.
Subaru of America, Inc. and the ASPCA teamed up to help animals in need across the country by hosting their largest grant program ever, in a time when support is needed the most.
