Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy.

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. 

How is Stocker Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve it as well.

Love Promise Stories from Stocker Subaru

Subaru and Stocker Subaru believe in making a positive impact on the communities in which we live and work. We uphold that belief through our Love Promise Community Commitment.

Great Performance  –  Molly H

I have to say that not only is Laurie Voinchet a great sales manager but she has Awesome Customer Service Skills which is the main reason I went with your dealership even though I live 2 1/2 hours away. She more than knocked it out of the park for me. She is not like other sales people that just try to sale; she took the time to listen to me about what I wanted. I Love my new Crosstrek. Well done Laurie & I am telling Everyone how great you are. Another family member will be calling you tomorrow for their new car.

Share the Love, Love Your Heart Event  –  Laurie V

This December 16, 2019 Stocker Subaru held an event to support our Share the Love Charity ~ Mount Nittany Hospital Cardiovascular Wing. Would you know what to do if a family member or friend had a heart attack or might be choking? We had Bob and Cindy from Penns Valley EMS to demonstrate the use of an AED machine, CPR, choking techniques and blood pressure checks.Statics show that many more heart attacks and choking issues happen during this season as we may tend overindulge on holiday foods and traditions with family and friends. Jeff Brown from the BUS radio was here to join in the festivities. Simon Corby from the Mount Nittany Hospital came to speak about the new wing. We held drawings for Subaru prizes and giveaways to customers and radio listeners. Lots of great food too! The Share the Love Event ends of January 2, 2020.

Stocker Subaru & YSB - Share the Love Event 2018  –  Zach B

Stocker Subaru, the Stocker family, and their entire team have been longtime supporters of the Centre County Youth Service Bureau (YSB). Making kids matter and giving back are staples of their business and personal values. During the 2018 holiday season, they showed this once again by selecting YSB to be the recipient of funds from their annual Subaru Share the Love Event. Today I am pleased to announce that Stocker Subaru raised more than $18,000 that will go to helping kids and families in our community. YSB is a private nonprofit that has been serving kids and families in Centre County for over 50 years. Programs and services are funded through federal, state, and local dollars, grants, county contracts, and miscellaneous sources. Each year YSB must raise more than $600,000 from public contributions and major fundraising events to help meet the overall goal. Our youth centers, Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring program, and Street Outreach Program are all in need of these public dollars. Thanks to generous donors like Stocker Subaru, we are able to offer an array of services and programs that are not fully funded by other sources. Thank you Stocker Subaru for making kids matter!

Stocker Surprises Cancer Patients with Gifts  –  Breanna S

For the second straight year, Stocker Subaru partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) on their month-long “Subaru Loves to Care” campaign. On July 6, members of the Stocker team had the opportunity to deliver blankets to patients receiving treatment at the Cancer Institute at Mount Nittany Medical Center. Stocker Subaru donated a generous 80 blankets to the facility, along with 10 arts and crafts kits and numerous messages of hope. Desiree Young of Mount Nittany’s Cancer Care Partnership told LLS that the patients were touched to know that so many others were thinking of them. Mount Nittany’s staff was thankful to receive these blankets because they’re so useful for patients who get cold during treatment. Along with the blankets, Stocker brought stacks of heartwarming notes written by Subaru customers meant to inspire these patients throughout their battle. The experience was moving for all involved, and LLS owes a debt of gratitude to everyone at Subaru of America and Stocker Subaru for making this program possible. Thank you for joining us in our mission to cure blood cancers and to improve the lives of patients and their families throughout our local communities.

We had two grants for this garden, one from Lowes and one from Subaru. We also had massive help from a local organization called Penns Valley Conservation Association. They arranged for the beds to be built and solicited plant donations. We are proud of our little garden! Each grade K-6 had a hand in helping make this possible

An Outstanding Sales Woman  –  Rus B

My wife and I bought a Subaru Outback from a young lady at the Subaru Building. Erin was here nam. I'll never forget it. She was new, fresh, full of knowledge and made our experience great. We are originally from New York and would have never been showed the courtesy she showed us. You have a really great sales staff and I would recommend her and your dealership to anyone. Thank you for providing her with such amazing training and knowledge, but letting her have her own bubbly, happy personality on top of that. We have a dog that is very old and she gave us a toy car that just made my dog extremely happy. Thank you Subaru and Stocker Subaru! A Very Happy and Now Loyal Customer! The Burs

Stocker Subaru and Centre County Paws  –  Laurie V

Stocker Subaru has Shared the Love with our local animal shelter Centre County Paws for the past 6 years. PAWS is a shelter that is committed to finding forever homes for cats and dogs, providing spay/neuter assistance and educating the public on responsible pet ownership. Every December Stocker Subaru partners with PAWS to have an on site pet adoption at our store. We have a Subaru at the shelter to fill with pet supplies and also in the showroom. We also have live radio remotes on site inviting people to come by to donate food and supplies to the shelter and are given prizes from the dealership. In 2013 we raised over $7000. With these funds the shelter was able to employ a part time animal technician to provide medical care for the pets. The shelter is staffed by mostly volunteers and a great number of these people are current Subaru owners. This is also great word of mouth advertising for Stocker and Subaru. We hope to continue this partnership for many years to come.
