The 2018 Subaru Love Promise Customer Commitment Award

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 DuTeau Subaru

Subaru Outback 50 Cars for 50 Years- Tabitha  –  Michaela Y

Subaru Outback 50 Cars for 50 Years- Tabitha

On November 15th, Tabitha unveiled the Subaru Outback through an event at Tabitha Meals on Wheels where we invited news crews and our local Subaru retailer. At the event, Tabitha had a volunteer who has been delivering for 50 years that shared the impact of Meals on Wheels. Eric Klein from Duteau Subaru shared how seniors rely on Meals on Wheels and how excited Subaru was to take part in this event. Gina Cotton, from Tabitha discussed how thankful Tabitha is to Subaru for the donation. Immediately following the event, 10/11 news filmed meals getting packed up in the Subaru Outback and driving off for the Meals on Wheels delivery with Mike Minnick (President of Duteau) and Eric Klein (Subaru Sales Manager) from Duteau Subaru. 10/11 news proceeded to go on the Meals on Wheels delivery with Gina, Eric, and Mike with Gina mic'd up. Tabitha was able to spotlight that Meals on Wheels is more than just a meal, it is also a safety check and often times the Meals on Wheels volunteer is the only person the recipient sees every day. This news story ran on the 4pm, 5pm, 6pm, and 10pm news on November 15th. Tabitha also shared the story as well as photos from the event on social media.

Spreading Warmth and Hope  –  Alisha P

Spreading Warmth and Hope

On July 6th, 2017, together for the second year the DuTeau Subaru in Lincoln, Nebraska met up with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to spread hope and warmth throughout Southeast Nebraska Cancer Center. After unloading two Subaru’s full of 80 blankets, the team set out to deliver blankets to patients receiving treatment to provide comfort, hope and warmth. Southeast Nebraska Cancer Center was very thankful for the donation. "This is a terrific community-wide project that we are excited to be a part of with DuTeau Subaru and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We are eager to start giving these special packages to our patients." Steven G. Dunder, MD, Medical Oncologist. LLS is grateful to the generosity of Subaru and their customers for being true community partners and sharing the love with cancer patients and their families! We look forward to continued partnership!

Helping Keep Cancer Patients Warm  –  Brianne K

Helping Keep Cancer Patients Warm

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) – Nebraska Chapter was proud to partner with DuTeau Subaru in Lincoln, Nebraska in June during Subaru Loves to Care month to provide support to patients fighting cancer. DuTeau Subaru provided 60 blankets to be donated to local cancer patients to provide comfort and warmth. Subaru staff and customers were encouraged to write a message of hope to local patients through “care cards” and receive a LLS/Subaru bracelet to help spread awareness of LLS’s mission to find a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and myeloma while improving the quality of life of patients and their families. We had a great experience working with Eric Klein, Sales Manager at DuTeau Subaru. Eric and I (Brianne Kemp with LLS) had the opportunity to deliver blankets to Bryan Health and meet with Ruth VanGerpen, who leads the cancer support groups at Bryan Health. She looks forward to delivering the blankets to patients at the support groups, and knows they'll be put to good use both at the clinic and at patients' homes. Bryan Health was so thankful for the donation (and enjoyed exploring the Crosstrek pictured!). I'm also excited to be working with Eric at DuTeau to get myself into my first Subaru - an Outback! It has been a pleasure working with Eric and DuTeau Subaru, and I look forward to continued partnership!

Share the Love 2015  –  Kara F

Share the Love 2015

DuTeau Subaru is always doing wonderful things for the community. This past year the Lincoln Children's Zoo was picked for the Share the Love Event. A check of $15,000 was presented to the Zoo, even Johnny the African Serval came out to show his appreciation! Can't wait to see what DuTeau is going to do next!

The Gift of a New Home  –  Robert D

The Gift of a New Home

Subaru of America presented us with a check for $11,927.00 on behalf of DuTeau Subaru. On average it costs Capital Humane Society $250.00 per unwanted pet to find a new home. This includes spaying/neutering, microchipping, vaccinating, other surgeries that might be needed, grooming, dental work, etcetera. This generous gift helped approximately 50 pets find new homes. Beyond the 50 pets this gift has enriched the lives of the people who are impacted by those pets. We are truly grateful to DuTeau Subaru and Subaru of America for helping make this possible. Sincerely, Robert A. Downey, President/CEO Capital Humane Society

Going the extra mile  –  Barbara F

Going the extra mile

John did an excellent job of helping me with this purchase and making sure that everything was explained clearly once the vehicle was purchased. Also, the gentleman who explained extended warranty options was extremely helpful. We changed our mind about purchasing an extended warranty and ding repair because of his sincere manner and clear explanations. I also am "sold" on this service department at DuTeau. I love driving my new Subaru!
