Announcing a new Charity Partner! - Katie M

For the first year, we are proud to partner with the Ronald McDonald House. As an additional gift during Share the Love, we’ve chosen to pledge another $75 per vehicle ordered. The Ronald McDonald house provides lodging, meals, access to pantries, kitchens and laundry, an accredited K-12 school, and family-focused programing. We cannot imagine how hard it is to have loved ones in and out of the hospital, especially during a pandemic. To help lessen the burden on these families, we are excited to donate an additional $75 from every Subaru order until the end of the year.

Finding Pets their Forever Home - Katie M

Bloomington Subaru was proud to continue our support for Minnesota Animal Rescue & Services, (MARS) for Subaru Loves Pets Month. We were excited to celebrate with an adoption event on Saturday, October 23rd. We were excited to have multiple foster dogs her, ready to find a new home. Before pets can be adopted from MARS, they vaccinate, microchip, spay/neuter, and give the pets the time to adjust, before becoming available. MARS believes that no matter the breed or age of pet, every animal can find a perfect home.

Making a Holiday brighter - Katie M

Every year, Bloomington Subaru partners with Toys for Tots and is an official Drop off Location. We always look forward to giving back throughout the year, but it holds a special importance to us during the holidays. We are so thankful that we can help make a child’s holiday a little brighter, even if it is just a toy to some. Throughout the store, we collected new, unwrapped toys, with both customers and employees donating to the cause. This year, because of COVID-19, after collecting toys for the month of December, the Service department loaded the 4 full boxes of Toys into a festive Red Subaru and brought the toys to the local headquarters. 2020 topped 2019 in terms of toy donations, and plan to top in for the 2021 season.

Blankets to help Homeless Youth - Katie M

In recognition of Homeless Youth Awareness Month, and to kick off Subaru Share the Love, Bloomington Subaru donated 80 new, all weather blankets to Hope Street Shelter for Young Adults. The Shelter located in Minneapolis, offers support to young adults ages 18-22. Hope Street Shelter provides basic needs- shelter, food, and laundry to at risk youth. The average stay at Hope Street is 30 days, and as the weather in Minnesota gets colder, we understand the importance of a warm blanket of your own. We were happy to support them, and packed a Subaru full of blankets to Hope Street Shelter.

Sustainable Options at Bloomington Subaru - Bloomington S

As a store Bloomington Subaru is committed to keeping our planet healthy and believe that little steps can make a huge difference. This year, we phased out the use of Styrofoam cups and implemented a healthier option for our plant. At our coffee bar we now have compostable hot & cold cups, lids, and sleeves. Along with our commitment to Terracycle, the recycling of snack wrappers, coffee and drinkware, Bloomington Subaru’s goal is to limit our waste. We are proud to have taken our part of the 8 million metric tons of plastic that enters the ocean year and switch to a sustainable option.

#SubaruLovesToCare with LLS + Frauenshuh - Celeste L

This was the third year in a row that Bloomington Subaru, Subaru of America and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) came together to spread love, hope, and warmth to cancer patients and their families across the country. On Thursday, June 28, 2018, as part of the national Subaru Loves to Care program, Bloomington Subaru and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society delivered blankets, cards of hope, and arts and crafts kits to patients at Frauenshuh Cancer Center. Noah Joseph, as well as several employees of the Bloomington Dealership, came to represent Subaru. One of the employees is a pediatric leukemia survivor, which made the delivery especially moving to Bloomington Subaru. They lit up the room when they brought in the gifts and brightened everyone’s day with their positive attitudes and smiles. Several patients were available to accept the blankets and expressed nothing but gratitude for the support and gesture of warmth. This program has had a huge impact on communities and their support continues to be a source of inspiration for patients and families. Thank you, Bloomington Subaru!

Subaru and NWF Love the Earth! - Melanie P

At Great River School we love bugs and bees...and fruit and veggies! We added the native plants for pollinators so generously donated to us by Bloomington Subaru to the edges of our existing vegetable garden to give some food to the insects while they also help pollinate our food! The garden will come alive with butterflies and bees all summer and will greet the students when they return at the end of the summer. Thanks Subaru and National Wildlife Federation!
