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.

Love Promise Stories from Faulkner Subaru - Bethlehem

Delivering Hope one Meal at a Time  –  Meals on Wheels o

Delivering Hope one Meal at a Time

In celebration of its 50th anniversary, and in keeping with its philosophy of supporting local communities, Subaru of America Inc. is donated 50 new 2018 Subaru Outback vehicles to Meals on Wheels of America. Meals on Wheels of Northampton County was selected to receive one of the new vehicles because of the significant impact it will have on the county including the delivery of countless additional meals to 40+ seniors per year. Not only did Faulkner Subaru of Bethlehem facilitate the delivery of the new Outback we also donated $250 worth of gas gift cards to get started. Faulkner Subaru of Bethlehem team members will also be delivering meals to the local community next month.

Every Child Deserves to Play Baseball  –  Miracle League o

Every Child Deserves to Play Baseball

Faulkner Subaru Bethlehem partnered with Northampton County's Miracle League to show their community appreciation. Miracle League provides children and young adults with intellectual and physical disabilities an opportunity to play baseball at a beautiful venue which is specifically designed to meet their unique needs. The facility is custom designed with 100% latex free, flat, rubber field with no barriers to accommodate those who are visually impaired, in wheelchairs, walkers, and other assisted devices with the idea in mind that everyone deserves a chance to play baseball. Northampton County's Miracle League has over 250 players and the organization focuses on each athlete's abilities to create positive life experiences. Every athlete has a chance to bat, score, and the last player hits a grand slam so that every athlete left on base has a chance to run to home base. Each Faulkner Subaru Bethlehem employee, or family member, who participated paired with an individual athlete to play catch to warm up, assist with running the bases, and kept athletes entertained during down time. Both the athletes and participants had a GREAT time! Faulkner plans to continue this partnership with Miracle League for future events.

Grow, Raise, Catch  –  Faulkner Subaru B

Grow, Raise, Catch

Nelson Mandela once noted "Education is the most powerful weapon in which you can change the world." Faulkner Subaru of Bethlehem couldn't agree more. Upon learning that most teachers pay for their own school supplies we asked our sales and service customers to donate school supplies to the local ASA Packer Elementary School. We had a collection of pens, pencils, notebooks, hand sanitizer, and more that we were able to donate for the classrooms to share. Subaru of America generously donate over 100 books of all different reading levels so each grade level would have something to read and enjoy. Not only did we drop off the donations but members of our team spent time interacting in the classrooms and reading the 4th and 5th graders one of the books called Grow, Raise, Catch. The book taught the students about farming and where we get our food. Faulkner Subaru of Bethlehem looks forward to working alongside our future leaders and scholars and investing time where it matters most.

Faulkner Subaru in Bethlehem Loves to Care. Faulkner Subaru partnered with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to donate blankets to the Cancer patients at the St. Luke's Cancer Center. We asked our service, parts, and sales customers to fill out a Messages of Hope to be placed with each blanket donation. Not only did we donate blankets we also donated lunchboxes with craft supplies in for the children. Members of our team put the messages of hope with the blankets and lunchboxes and took the donations to the hospital. We were able to meet a cancer patient and personally give her the blanket donation. The patients at the center were very thankful for the donation as they get very cold during their treatment. Faulkner Subaru looks forward to partnering with the Lukemia and Lymphoma Society for future events.

The students were so excited about planting the beautiful plants for the bird garden with you. We have already enjoyed watching the birds visit the garden.

It is Faulkner Subaru Bethlehem's belief to always find ways to invest in our local community. As an extension of the Subaru Loves the Earth initiative Faulkner Subaru of Bethlehem partnered with Asa Packer Elementary School assisting students in their school garden. Students prepped the garden by pulling the weeds, tilling the garden, and laying out the plan. Our team members helped the students plant flowers Subaru of America generously donated. While working alongside the students our team members were able to explain the importance of preserving the ecosystem for future generations and positively impact the students learning experience. When our team left the school the students even asked for our autographs. Faulkner Subaru of Bethlehem is looking forward to partnering with Asa Packer for future events.

Saving Planet Earth One Step at a Time

This Earth Day, April 22, Members of the Faulkner Subaru Staff gave up their Saturday morning meeting to give back to the Community and Planet Earth. Everyone met at the Local Hanover Township Community Park where we cleaned up trash, swept off the side walks, and cleaned out the drains. We found a lot of bottle caps and small plastic pieces that animals or children could've choked on while playing on the playground equipment. We are thankful for the community we live in and glad we were able to give back this way.

LLS Team Captain/Subaru Owner Gives Back  –  Sandy M

LLS Team Captain/Subaru Owner Gives Back

Sandy Moran, long-time Light the Night team captain and Subaru driver, jumped at the opportunity to join the Eastern PA Chapter in delivering blankets to her local hospital's cancer center. Sandy, created and has led her walk team, Twin Angels, for the past several years in honor of her identical twin daughters, Jessica and Christa, who were diagnosed with a rare blood disorder as infants. The girls fought this battle among several others into their twenties. Jessica passed of anorexia days after her 21st birthday. Christa's blood disorder developed into leukemia, and weeks after receiving a bone marrow transplant, she also passed. Doctors confirmed Jessica would have also developed leukemia, had she lived. Sandy is grateful for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and knows that research gave her more years with her children than the doctors thought possible. They called them ….. "The Miracle Twins". It was with gratitude, Sandy was able to participate in the blanket delivery and thank Subaru for their very generous contributions to LLS and local cancer patients. Sandy was able to hand deliver blankets to patients and give back to those going through the challenges her daughters had.

Faulkner Subaru supports Red Cross!

The team at Faulkner Subaru are great supporters of the American Red Cross of the Greater Lehigh Valley. This year was the third year in a row that Faulkner chose our Chapter as their local donation option for the Subaru Share the Love program. Through this program, Subaru has donated over $25,000 to the Greater Lehigh Valley Chapter in the past three years. This year Faulkner Business Manager Dave Kopew and Subaru District Sales Manager Adam Woodhull extended their support by providing lunch for our staff and volunteers at the Chapter, and then capped off the day by presenting donations totaling $10,000. These funds will be used to provide assistance to families affected by home fires and other disasters, help keep families safe through our Home Fire Preparedness Campaign, support first aid and preparedness training, and help provide support to our military members and their families. Faulkner Subaru also hosts a Red Cross Blood Drive each year, encouraging their team members, customers, and the community to provide the gift of life-saving blood. The American Red Cross is not a government agency and relies on the generosity of donors such as Faulkner Subaru and Subaru of America to be able to provide services to our community. We value their ongoing support and look forward to continuing a great relationship for many years to come!

Butterfly Heroes  –  Jill W

Butterfly Heroes

My mother Janet Martin was going to my son's 4th grade class on Monday 4.25 to visit and deliver a lesson for the kids. She wanted it to be educational and fun and timely since it is finally spring. She had read an article in the local paper about "Butterfly Heroes" and the relationship with Subaru, in particular Faulkner Subaru. Dave Kopew was quoted in the article and she figured she would give him a call to see if she could get more information on the program. She called the morning she was supposed to go into the classroom, and asked for Dave. She explained that she waited until the last minute and she needed the information for her lesson at 12:30 that day. Dave was kind enough to meet her at the front door of the dealership, give her enough packets of seeds and information for all kids in the class. She made it in time to the school and the kids loved it. Dave and Faulkner Subaru went above and beyond anything he had to do for my mother and my son's class. My mom is not a past customer of the dealership and he did not have to help at all, but he did. I truly appreciate that we have businesses in the Lehigh Valley like Faulkner Subaru, makes it a better place to live and work. Thank you Dave and the Faulkner Subaru team!

Meals on Wheels  –  Nancy M

Laps for Leukemia  –  Erik R

Laps for Leukemia

Our partner Adams Outdoor advertising held their second annual laps for Leukemia race at the Lehigh Grand Prix in Allentown Pa. Faulkner Subaru was one of eight dealerships that raced to help donate funds to the Leukemia and Lymphoma society. This fundraising event is one of the most popular events for our employees as they get to compete on the track vs seven other dealerships. During the qualifying laps we were feeling great with our number two pole position. We were in the middle of the pack most of the race, but with a few unfortunate penalties and some pit stop mishaps we fell to seventh place in the end. No worries! We had a great time for a great cause.

March for Meals  –  Janet S

March for Meals

Meals on Wheels of Northampton County participates in the national "March for Meals" campaign. I was fortunate to be invited to help out in this years campaign, which is an annual month-long event, sponsored by the Meals on Wheels Association of America. It is designed to generate awareness about senior hunger and isolation and to celebrate the invaluable services provided by the more than 5,000 Meals on Wheels programs across the country. This annual campaign is also intended to help recruit new volunteers from our community and to increase fundraising from local businesses and supporters. For more information visit www.marchformeals.com. I helped deliver meals to 12 people in the Lehigh Valley and I can truly say this was a humbling experience. Hunger is out there, whether it is a financial hardship or the inability to shop and/or prepare a meal on your own, but Meals on Wheels is certainly doing its part to help our community.

"Stuff a Subaru"  –  David K

Meals On Wheels of Northampton County partnered up for a second year in a row with Dave and his team at Faulkner Subaru for the Share the Love event. Due to last year's success, again we "Stuffed a Subaru" with white paper bags (depicting our cold bag dinners) and visitors to the dealership had the opportunity to guess how many stuffed white bags were in the car. Guests entered their guess in a box at the Faulkner Subaru dealership at the Meals On Wheels display table. The persons guessing the closest to the number correctly each won a $100 Visa gift card. Our relationship with Faulkner has flourished over the past two years and Dave is coming back for a second year to deliver meals for our upcoming March for Meals Campaign as a Community Champion.

Our "Share the Love" blood drive  –  David K


Faulkner Subaru of Bethlehem was pleased to partner with the American Red Cross of the Greater Lehigh Valley for a second consecutive year during Subaru's "Share the Love" campaign. In our first year of partnership we were able to create a better awareness of the important functions of the Red Cross in our community. At the same time we were able to raise $4,000 for this worthy cause that supports our military families, is the first line in disaster relief, collects life saving blood donations, and among other things is involved in health and safety services. This year we decided that we would do a little more and hold our first blood drive. Along with the Red Cross we set out for a modest goal of 15 pints of blood with the potential to help 45 people. In the end we collected 20 pints of blood with the potential to help 60 people. Thank you to everyone who donated. The results for the financial contributions are still coming in, but we do know that we significantly surpassed last years donation.
