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.

One in Eight  –  Cristi M

One in eight women in the US will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime. Research has shown that early screening and detection is vital for diagnosis and treatment. It is our belief that no mother, daughter, sister or aunt should have to forego a lifesaving mammogram because she cannot afford one. Pensacola Breast Cancer Association has been a fortunate recipient of Anderson Subaru's Share the Love event since 2015. We are a local non-profit organization with a volunteer Board of Directors that raises funds to pay for mammograms for uninsured and underinsured women in Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties in Florida. All of the money raised by Pensacola Breast Cancer Association stays local and is donated to the two area non-profit hospitals. Since its inception in 2003, Pensacola Breast Cancer Association has donated over $650,000 to our local healthcare organizations. Anderson Subaru has been a faithful donor to Pensacola Breast Cancer Association and since 2015 has donated over $56,200. Their donations have provided diagnostic services to over 500 area women. With the help of companies like Anderson Subaru, we are able to help save the lives of mothers, daughter, sisters and aunts in our community.

Anderson Subaru Hosts Service Dog Graduation  –  Emily T

On January 24th Anderson Subaru hosted the Service Dog University Inc., service dog graduation. This January there were 4 graduates who will then go on to work with their partners. The purpose of these service dogs is to help enhance the lives of individuals with disabilities by helping improve their independence, dignity, and quality of life. Each dog has been matched based on several factors including temperament, service strengths, and the unique needs of their handler. Each service dog graduate received their new service vest, certification, and cupcakes to celebrate their reaching this important milestone. Anderson Subaru was proud to partner with Service Dog University by providing a location for the 2019 graduation event as well as the necessary supplies for the hosting of this event. As part of our continued commitment to Subaru Loves Pets this event reminds everyone here at Anderson Subaru to celebrate the great work that so many in our community are involved in, including the great work our 4 legged friends here on the gulf coast!

Dream a Subaru then go to Anderson Subaru  –  Joyce G

I have been a long time fan of Subaru; but for reasons beyond my control over the years, I was unable to even think of owning one. About a month ago, my son and I were thinking of buying a new car and as people so often do, we went to the dealer where I bought my last car. We hesitated and on the way home, I said " why don't we stop and look at the least we'll know whether or not we want to consider a Subaru. We drove in very close to closing time and met Brian Jones and after talking to him and test driving the Forrester, we are now the proud owner of a Subaru; my long time dream finally realized.I want to say that first of all, Brian Jones is a true professional. He knows the product from beginning to end. He was so informative, we felt we knew why he showed such enthusiasm. In addition, he was attentive and friendly. We also had the pleasure of meeting some of the other personnel but Brian was the one who handled our transaction. Very impressive employee. We love our Forrester and will definitely use Anderson Subaru in Pensacola, Fl for all service on our vehicle.Like I said, Dream of owning a Subaru then visit Brian Jones at Anderson Subaru in Pensacola.

2nd Annual Happy Home For The Holidays Event  –  Laura B

Friends of the Escambia County Animal Shelter is so grateful for all the support we receive from Anderson Subaru. From Kennel Partnerships to semi annual adoption events, we know we can always count on them for help when our furry friends need it. We are excited every year for the annual Happy Home For The Holidays Event and the dogs love a chance to have a day away from the shelter! Thank you Anderson Subaru!!

GUlf Coast Tri Initiative 2016 – GCTT  –  GCTT

Living the Subaru Love Promise, Anderson Subaru partnered with the GC Tri Team for a Charity Bike and Triathlon initiative for two local Title 1 Schools – Oak Crest Elementary and Avalon Middle. The goal is to promote healthy lifestyles through multi-sport events by providing of bikes, helmets, and race entries. The Charity Initiative introduces youth athletes to athletic pursuits they may not have otherwise had the opportunity to discover. More than providing bikes to schools; this coordinated effort targets successful completion of multi-sport events (education, training, goal-setting). The members of the Team ascribe to the notion that their own participation and love in the sport has provided valuable insights that can be applied to life. Goal setting, preparation, sportsmanship, appreciation of “if you believe it, you can achieve it” – the adopted motto of the Initiative: Dream It. Believe It. Achieve It. Central to the program was keeping funds local, where the impact would be felt first-hand. GCTT reached out to Anderson Subaru – who came on board immediately. Anderson Subaru shares the vision, drive, motivation central to the mission of this Initiative. Without the support of Anderson Subaru, the program would not have realized it’s first year success: 17 bikes donated, 2 school-based programs, 40+ youth multisport event finishes. More importantly, the smiling faces of the kids finishing their races said it all.

Blown Away by Subaru's Generosity  –  Stacey P

Anderson Subaru had their customers hand-write cards with words of encouragement and hope for patients going through treatment or who were recently diagnosed. On June 27th, several members of Anderson Subaru’s staff and Mr. Anderson met with members of LLS to visit Sacred Heart Cancer Institute. With their visit, they presented Sacred Heart with 60 beautifully hand-made blankets and care cards.The hospital staff was blown away by the compassion and generosity of Subaru. During our interaction with the hospital staff, they told of stories of how patients receiving chemotherapy get together in classes and are often times cold. Anderson Subaru’s staff were very touched by these stories and offered to come back and personally present a blanket to each patient within these groups and give them a personal message of hope and courage. The nurses and administration spoke in great length of how much that would mean to these patients. I was aware of Subaru’s commitment to the community through various programs, however I had no idea how far their philanthropy reached. The goodwill of the company flows down from the top; every member of Anderson Subaru’s team had a spirit of compassion that is rare in today’s sales driven society. My respect for Subaru is now tenfold, they are the real deal, if you have any doubts just walk down the hall of Sacred Heart’s Cancer Institute and look into the eyes of those receiving these gifts of warmth, love and compassion. Subaru indeed, Loves to Care!

Meet A Neighbor In Need: Rachel's Story  –  JoAnn H

Rachel* is a young mother struggling to take care of two small children, 3 year old Aiden and 7 month old Joshua. Since having the baby she has been unable to return to work. She has no family in the area to help with the kids and she can't afford childcare. Fortunately her boyfriend has a job that provides for their basic expenses, such as rent, utilities, car and insurance payments. Once the bills are paid, there just isn't enough money left over for food. Each month, being able to provide enough food, much less nutritious food, takes a backseat to the bills. Thanks to generous donors like you, MANNA was able to provide a 5 day supply of nutritionally balanced groceries to Rachel and Aiden, and formula and baby food for little Joshua. She was also encouraged to apply for SNAP benefits until she was able to return to work. Rachel is just one example of many in our community who struggle to pay their bills and provide enough food for their families. On average it takes roughly 3 pounds of donated food or $5 per day to feed someone in need. Thanks to the generous $500 contribution we received from Anderson Subaru following the flood that destroyed our facility in April 2014 and the 329 pounds of donated food we received from the food drive in July 2015, we were able to help another 210 people in need. Thank you Anderson Subaru for helping us fight hunger in our community! *Names are changed and stock photos are used to protect client confidentiality.
