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.

Love Promise Stories from Gerald Jones Subaru

LOVE is a four legged word  –  Chenin S

Gerald JonesSubaru had a howling good time providing a space for the Dog Networking Agentsof Augusta to hold a very successful “Meet and Greet” dog adoption event! Allof the dogs that are rescued by the Dog Networking Agents are placed withfoster parents and are analyzed for their specific needs. Families orIndividuals who want to adopt are required to fill out an application andschedule a home inspection to make sure they are able to care for their new petproperly. So many shelters are becoming overloaded with animals from owners whofind they are unable to provide a proper home for their pets, and the Dog NetworkingAgents are working to eliminate their rescues from being displaced again afterthey become adopted. Gerald Jones Subaru had a tremendous turnout for the “Meetand Greet” event, and every pup that was on site received at least one adoptionapplication. The Fantastic Four pups, who were rescued from the side of a road,stole everyone’s hearts and each one has found a “Fur”ever home of their own!Reid, a calm and loyal companion, is happy to have found someone to love himthe rest of his days. Izzy, a spunky bully mix and her puppy, Milkyway, wereadopted as well! Supporting the Dog Networking Agents is an honor and GeraldJones Subaru is looking forward to hosting more “Meet and Greet” events soon!

Subaru Loves to Care for Cancer Patients  –  Chantal R

Subaru Loves to Care for Cancer Patients

Gerald Jones Subaru and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society – Georgia Chapter partnered to bring care-kits to the Augusta University Medical Center on the 27th of June. Georgia Cancer Center Director, John Cowell, Cancer Center Service Line Director, Daniel Albo, Chief of Staff, Albert Dallas, Associate Director of Clinical Research, Sharad Ghamande, hematologist, Jeremy Pantin, and center social worker, Susan Doughtie were in attendance to deliver the packages. We were able to provide blankets to two patients: Meryl Edwards and Brandy Stephens. LLS has supported Meryl since her AML diagnosis in 2010; she is in remission after undergoing a stem cell transplant. Meryl is a tireless advocate for increasing awareness about blood cancers and lifesaving treatments and became a First Connection Volunteer in 2013. Brandy was diagnosed with ALL in 2014 and has undergone a pediatric clinical trial and a stem cell transplant. She continues to recover from the late effects of the treatment and is the proud mom and wife to Les. Like Meryl, Brandy has joined LLS as a volunteer, leads an active Light the Night team, and has been an Honored Hero. We were extremely grateful for the opportunity to give back to these two women. Gerald Jones Subaru staff, Chenin Sacino and Jamilah Dukes, were excited and grateful for the opportunity to partner with LLS. We thank Subaru for bringing us together to support a worthy cause!

A Habitat for Learning  –  Leeann F

A Habitat for Learning

The children here in Augusta, GA are getting ready to dive into summer break and are ready to trade books for swimsuits. Before the bells rang, Gerald Jones Subaru was able to reach out to Baker Place Elementary and implant the importance of preserving the earth. As part of the Subaru Loves the Earth initiative, we installed a Certified Wildlife Habitat with Principal Fleischauer and a few of Baker Place Elementary’s 5th grade students. We planted several butterfly bushes, placed a toad house, set up a bird bath, birdfeeders, and birdhouses. The students will water the plants the rest of the school year and one of the teachers has volunteered to care for the habitat over the summer months. When the students return in August, the habitat will be growing in and abundantly providing food and shelter for the wildlife in the area.Classrooms will have the chance to take their science studies outside and learn hands on how a natural habitat is maintained. Gerald Jones Subaru is excited to provide such a wonderful learning tool for our community’s youth!

Subaru Share the Love  –  Nicole S

Subaru Share the Love

From now until January 3rd, if you purchase or lease a new Subaru, a $250 donation will be made to the charity of your choice. This year, the hometown charity for Gerald Jones Subaru is New Hope Bridge Ministry. Their mission is to love and care for inner-city poor and homeless men by providing food, clothing, hygiene, shoes, winter apparel, outdoor equipment, and basic needs. Every Saturday we serve 350 hot meals under a bridge in downtown Augusta, GA to the homeless and poor, also providing necessary supplies and sharing words of encouragement and hope. We believe love unlocks the fullness of life; it turns a meal into a feast, and it turns a stranger into a friend. Choose New Hope Bridge Ministry to receive a donation from Subaru, and Gerald Jones Subaru will donate an additional $50 for each sold or leased vehicle. You can also donate to one of the national charities such as ASPCA, Make-A-Wish, Meals on Wheels America, and National Park Foundation. Put a little love in people's hearts this holiday season.

The Bridge Ministry  –  Jason W

Feeling hopeless and lost is something everyone struggles with at some point in their lives. Most of us have something or someone to help us cope. For many, that encouragement never comes. People living in poverty are not just homeless and hungry. They are left feeling unwanted and unloved. Pastor Roger Gardner started the Bridge Ministry in 2007 to give people with nowhere to go somewhere they can connect and gain confidence. Every Saturday, The Bridge Ministry sets up under the 15th Street Bridge to feed, clothe, and share the gospel with hundreds of homeless and poverty stricken families. A bridge is defined as a connector from one place to another over an obstacle. The Bridge Ministry is the connector for people who feel alone to find hope, love and compassion. Gerald Jones Subaru is proud of our ongoing partnership with this amazing ministry. A big part of our partnership is made possible by the Subaru Share the Love event and the Subaru Love Promise mission. Stuffing backpacks with back to school supplies for children in August, Feeding thousands of people on Thanksgiving, and bringing gifts to joyous children on Christmas are just a few of the things that The Bridge Ministry is able to do with the partnership of Gerald Jones Subaru and 30 local organizations in the CSRA. Giving back to this ministry makes it possible for more people to be reached, cared for and given the hope for a better tomorrow.

Knitting Our Hearts Together  –  Chenin S

Knitting Our Hearts Together

Connie Jones describes our busy lives as a “rat race”. This simple term summed up how she felt about her own life the moment she witnessed the day to day lives of the people in La Source, Haiti. The commotion of text messages, emails and phones calls; or the concern of how to pay rent and where to eat will never be a part of a La Source Haitian’s life. Instead, pure survival is how their every day is spent. Connie is the wife of Andy Jones, the owner of Gerald Jones Subaru, and she has a remarkable mission. After spending the first several trips to La Source as a medical aid, Connie found her calling through the relationships with the women she helped deliver, and often times bury, their children. She started teaching the women how to knit washcloths, coin purses and small totes. In April 2012, 10 women started knitting with Connie and today over 80 La Source Haitian women sell their products to provide for their children! Over 6,600 wash cloths, coin purses and totes have been sold by Knitting Our Hearts Together, providing over $25,000.00 to the women of La Source! Connie and her team continue to make 3-4 trips a year to supply the women with yarn, knitting kits and needles. With each trip, La Source becomes less about surviving and more about progress and growth. Gerald Jones Subaru couldn’t be more proud to be an advocate and contributing partner to such a worthy cause!

Backpacks for Success  –  Roger G

Backpacks for Success

Our hometown charity, The Bridge Ministry, constantly inspires us at Gerald Jones Subaru. Roger Gardner and his wife started this project by having Bible sessions with people under the 15th street bridge in Augusta, GA 8 years ago. Soon after, they began feeding everyone that joined them. As more people came so did the volunteers and eventually it grew into a ministry beyond the Gardner's imagination. This past Saturday, August 8th, over 400 people showed up to be a part of their weekly mission. The people that come here are often homeless and have gone without food for days. A lot of the time, there are entire families in a situation where the parents are unable to provide essentials for their children. With the school year approaching, Gerald Jones Subaru geared up to help. Throughout the month of July we accepted donations and hosted a school supply drive to fill backpacks. Among the 400 people that showed up this past Saturday, 150 of those were children and each one was able to walk away prepared for the school year ahead! Gerald Jones Subaru has helped contribute over $20,000 in aid toward The Bridge Ministry this year. Our goal is to double those contributions in the year to come! The greatest success we'll know is helping others succeed and grow-Gregory Scott Reid

Subaru Loves to Save Local Lives  –  John L

Subaru Loves to Save Local Lives

One of the best things about being a part of the Subaru family is all the ways that Subaru gives back to the community. The Shepeard Community Blood Center is a non-profit organization that collects, processes, and distributes blood to 20 local hospitals in Augusta, GA. On July 11, 2015 Gerald Jones Subaru partnered with Shepeard Community Blood Center and hosted a blood drive. In three hours we were able to collect enough blood to save 45 local lives! Gerald Jones Subaru wants to thank all of the volunteers and everyone that came out to donate for making this a huge success.

A Father's Day Meal  –  Richard S

A Father's Day Meal

Father's Day is typically a relaxing enjoyable day spent outside, barbequing with family. This year in lieu of a day off, Mark Boyd, our General Manager of Gerald Jones Subaru, decided to spend his time with his son serving others. Making sure someone else has what they need can make an impact far bigger than what it seems. The Master's Table Soup Kitchen feeds over 300 people daily 365 days a year. The people that come here are from all walks of life but they have one thing in common, hunger. This may be the only meal of the day for them. The Golden Harvest Food Bank and the help of up to 40 volunteers a day make it possible for people to enjoy a hot meal, inside and for a moment, relaxed. Here at Gerald Jones Subaru we give full support to such a selfless organization and look forward to contributing again to this great cause!

Knocking out hunger with Food4Kids  –  Julie M

Knocking out hunger with Food4Kids

It's easy to take for granted the little things in life, a place to call home, a new summer outfit or even a meal at the end of the day. How often do you find yourself grabbing a snack from the pantry simply because you can. The staff and volunteers at Columbia County Community Connections see firsthand what it's like for people to only hope to eat today. Food4kids, a joint effort by Golden Harvest, Columbia County Cares and local churches to ensure children in Columbia County have enough food. I had the opportunity to spend a day with Pat Grice, the Food4Kids coordinator, and get a glimpse at what it takes to provide for these children. What I took back from the experience was nothing short of humbling. The dedication and compassion Pat conveys is astounding. She embraces each challenge with patience and the love for her work. During the 2015 school year 531 kids at 26 schools in Columbia County received food for the weekend. This summer 222 children are registered to receive 5 meals a week. These numbers will only grow. Gerald Jones Subaru decided to make a contribution to give back to this organization and donated $5,000.00 towards the purchase of a van. With the extra space, Pat will be able to deliver more food to more families than ever before. Gerald Jones Subaru will also continue to rally behind Columbia County Community Connections and offer support when it's needed. For all the little things in life we can only hope to make a big difference.

Gerald Jones Subaru continues 4 year partnership with New Hope Bridge Ministry  –  Roger G

Gerald Jones Subaru continues 4 year partnership with New Hope Bridge Ministry

Gerald Jones Subaru and I have partnered with the New Hope Bridge Ministry for the past 4 years. They provide meals and clothing for the homeless and impoverished in the Augusta area each Saturday under a downtown bridge. The warm food, a care package of food for later, an article of seasonally applicable clothing, child care and prayers are offered at each event. We provide the truck that delivers the food at no charge to the ministry. Three times per year there is a special service. In August, children are given backpacks and school supplies. In Novemeber, a Thanksgiving meal is prepared and warm clothing and NEW coats are given away. In December, a Christmas event is planned and toys are given to children and additional warm clothing for the winter. It is truly something to see when 50-100 people lay down their personal agenda each Saturday to help others. This is especially touching when it is the invisible and forgotten in society.
