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.

How is Sangera Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

At Sangera Subaru we believe in supporting and giving back to the community that drives us. We do this through our partnerships with community nonprofits and charities that work for the greater good. Sangera Subaru directly donates time money or goods and/or aids in directing funds to these organizations through the help of Subaru of America. It is through these efforts that Sangera Subaru helps to build a stronger healthier community here in Kern County. 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. 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.

Sangera Subaru helps Victory Family Services - Sangera S

Victory Family Services is a Foster Family Agency, and we support the Resource Families that open their doors to Foster Children in Kern County California. Recently, one of our foster youth was diagnosed with an illness that required immediate emergency surgery. This child was transferred immediately to Children’s Hospital in Madera to address this medical need. During the surgery and following recovery the Resource Parents had to travel the 120+ mile trip to visit and be at the child’s side. One of the Resource Parents had job difficulties because of the numerous trips to Madera. Thankfully, our Subaru was able to transport agency staff and the Resource Family members to be with the child. Thanks to our local Subaru dealership they had selected us for the Subaru Share the Love event. This help made it possible for us to continue the partnership and acquire the vehicle. Today the child is home, recovering well, and thriving. The Resource Parents are very thankful to our agency for helping and we are thankful for our Subaru!

Fostering Hope with Former Foster Youth - Randy M

Covenant Community Services (Covenant) was generously provided a 2020 Subaru Impreza for use and social services for current and former foster youth. Through this philanthropic partnership with Sangera Subaru, Covenant is enabled to continue services and supports that reach our mission of” providing hope and love to restore lives and transform generations of foster youth.” The Impreza is genuinely a love promise completed. Most foster youths leave the foster care “system” without many life skills and support. The lack of “building blocks” often leads to a criminal record, homelessness, hopelessness, substance abuse, unemployment, and other adverse outcomes. Through the provision of a vehicle, Sangera Subaru helps Covenant, and the youth we serve, to change the negative outcomes and build better futures. A driver’s license is a massive issue for any young person and especially for foster youth. The Covenant Coffee Mobile, our nickname for the Subaru, is used for driver education, delivery of coffee and equipment, transportation to events and appointments, and community awareness. It is a beacon of hope and an instrument for transformation! In addition to providing an incredible car, Sangera Subaru purchases freshly roasted coffee from the social enterprise of Covenant Community Services, Covenant Coffee. The Sangera Subaru customer service center has an array of beverages and snacks. One of the items leading the beverage category is Covenant Coffee. We are proud to be the official coffee of Sangera Subaru and blessed that Sangera Subaru provides coffee with the cause to their customers. Sangera Subaru fulfills the love promise with each cup of coffee supplied and helps share the message of “hope in a cup.” The purchase of Covenant Coffee leads to mentoring, job training, and employment for former and current foster youth. Sangera Subaru is a crucial component of the services and supports we provide daily to over 100 foster youth and former foster youth. I can honestly state that without their support, there are many things that we would be unable to do. Partnerships like Covenant and Sangera Subaru are examples of generosity and philanthropy in Kern County. I know Sangera Subaru helps many other nonprofit organizations, and they genuinely complete the love promise daily. We are proud to partner with them and thankful for their generous support. Lives are changed and generations transformed as a Subaru Impreza is used to increase skills and expand opportunities for former foster youth. It could not happen without the love promise of Sangera Subaru and their incredible team. For that, we are incredibly thankful.

T-Town Ride - Hassan H

2021 saw a scaled down version of the annual Tehachapi GranFondo event with the T-Town Ride. Due to all the event shutdowns in 2020 due to Covid, the GranFondo was one of the events that were cancelled. On September 25th the Tehachapi Valley Recreation and Parks District (TVRPD) broke out with a scaled back version of the event called the T-Town Ride. The event offered two courses, an18 mile and a 40 mile. The routes covered areas of town, going through Golden Hills, Alpine, Stallion Springs, and Cummings Valley. All participating riders received a Swag bag, finisher’s medal, chip timing service, and ride technical tee-shirt. Sangera Subaru was one of 4 corporate sponsors of this year’s event. As the Safety Sponsor, we were dubbed as the official pace car that led out the pack of riders down Tehachapi Blvd to begin the courses. This year’s vehicle was a Forester Sport. Although the T-Town ride was a smaller event, you could see the passion in both the riders and the TVRPD committee that worked so hard to put on this event. The Tehachapi GranFondo will be back in the fall of 2022. The event draws riders from all over the western United States to the community of Tehachapi, located just 40 miles east of Bakersfield. Details of the 2022 event will be available in January of 2022.
