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.

Thank you Ciocca for supporting Special Olympics  –  Alice M

Ciocca Subaru has been a terrific supporter of Bethlehem, Lehigh County, and Northampton County Special Olympics programs serving over 2,000 individuals with intellectual disabilities in the Lehigh Valley. Through the Share the Love Campaign, and Ciocca donations, our programs have been able to start new sports and continue to provide quality sports training and competitions. Northampton County started tennis and equestrian programs as a result of the Ciocca grant. Bethlehem expanded their invitational competitions. Lehigh County and Bethlehem are able to take 40 athletes to a week of sports camp in western PA. Special Olympics is provided at no cost to the athletes or their families, thanks to the generous support of donors like CIocca. This provides access to many who would not otherwise have an opportunity to participate. Through sports and social interactions, Special Olympics brings life-changing experiences not only to the athletes served, but also to their families, coaches, volunteers, and the community. We are so grateful for Ciocca Subaru’s support of our programs.

Many thanks to everyone at Ciocca Subaru and Lehigh Valley Health Network not only for a memorable day, but for supporting LLS’s mission to cure blood cancers and improve the quality of life of patients and their families!

CanJam for Hunger Sponsored by Ciocca Subaru  –  Rene B

This event was held to help raise money for the Second Harvest Food Bank. We were proud to sponsor this event and help our community by helping to raise $9,183 and 1,892 pounds of food. It warms our hearts that the community came out to help our neighbors in need.

Ciocca Subaru Loves to Care LVHN Cedarcrest!  –  Jenn P

It’s always amazing to see smiling faces in blue shirts even though the weather has reached over 100 degrees. Upon meeting with Nicole, Sean, and Christina from Ciocca Subaru, we quickly learned of their kindness and excitement for blanket delivery. The Lehigh Valley Health Network in Cedar Crest met us with open arms and consistent words of thanks to Subaru. Jill, Infusion Center Director, offered to give a tour of the facility and introduce the Subaru team to staff and deliver a blanket to a newly diagnosed patient. During the tour, Jill noted that they have tripled in size because of the need for care of cancer patients and the incredible impact Subaru is having on the many patients that are newly diagnosed. She noted that they give the blankets to patients that are in need of extra love in their first days of diagnosis and treatment. There happened to be one newly diagnosed gentlemen in need of some cheer. The LVHN team allowed the Subaru & LLS staff to bring him a blanket and tote bag and he exclaimed “It’s like Christmas in July!” As we continued our tour, the nurses, physicians, and staff offered so much warm welcome and excitement that Subaru joined them on what would normally be a hot and quiet day in the infusion center.Thank you Ciocca Subaru, for Loving to Care, and for sharing your joy with our patients and families.

Share the Event!!!  –  Amanda S

On behalf of all of all our athletes, we would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Ciocca Subaru for their continued support of Northampton County Special Olympics through their "Share the Love" campaign. It is hard to put into words what their commitment truly means to our program. Instead, our thank you can be seen in the faces of our athletes as they compete in local and state competitions. It can be heard in the cheers of support and congratulations as athletes receive a medal in their sport. But, most of all it can be felt in the hearts and minds of our athletes as they exemplify the pride of what it means to be a Special Olympics athlete. Providing these opportunities to our athletes requires significant financial aid and we simply could not do it without support from businesses in our community. Cioccu Subara continues to be one of our valued community partners and we look forward to working with them in the future

Ciocca Shares the Love w/William Allen High School  –  Rene B

William Allen High School is one of two, large urban, public high schools of the Allentown School District. Ciocca Subaru believes that education is a big part of life and we were very excited to join up with the science students from William Allen High School to donate some awesome science books. All the kids seemed very excited for all the new books and looked forward to reading them. Even the teacher thought that she may add one of the books to the curriculum. It was great to be a part of the Subaru loves learning initiative and we hope the book get lots of use.

Ciocca & LVHN Cedar Crest Loves To Care  –  Monique R

On July 26th, 2017, Ciocca Subaru of Allentown, PA and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) of Eastern PA teamed up to deliver hope and light to patients at the Children’s Cancer Center and Multipurpose Infusion Center at Lehigh Valley Health Network in Allentown, PA as part of Subaru’s Loves To Care Campaign. This new Infusion Center had only opened days before Ciocca and LLS delivered 80 blankets, care cards and 12 arts & crafts kits. The hospital was very excited to receive all these wonderful items. It was great to look thru the care cards to see words of encouragement and the drawings customers did. These care cards will be great encouragement for these young patients going thru treatment. The hospital personnel will deliver blankets along with the care cards to patients the majority of them being children and the arts & crafts kits will be used by the children while they are there for treatment or seeing the doctor. Even though we were not able to personally deliver the blankets we were able to have a tour of the new Center. Thank you to everyone for helping bring light, hope and warmth into these patients lives.

Kutztown Middle School join in creating a Habitat  –  Shelby B

Kutztown Area Middle School began working on a native plant garden in the early 2000's following a school renovation project which left much of the landscape in a monoculture of grass. Through numerous grants and collaboration with local conservationists, our middle school students have created a full-fledged wildlife habitat and oasis within the surrounding athletic fields and farm lands. Students regularly go to the habitat garden for nature journaling, plant and animal studies, and lessons connecting art, math and science. Again, thank you so much for helping us build our wildlife habitat at Kutztown Area Middle School!

Ciocca Special Benefit Performance  –  Hilary S

Dear Gregg: We continue to receive excellent feedback from families, friends and sponsors about their experience at the Run for Woods. There was an energy to the event this year that I don’t think we have had in the past. We had nearly 1,100 people running, walking or rolling -- including hundreds of clients – making our run/walk one of the largest integrated sporting events in Bucks County. More than 100 volunteers staffed the course as marshals and assisted with rest stops, registration, and lunch. We were fortunate that following drenching rain on Friday, the sun broke through just moments before the Opening Ceremony. We were overwhelmed by the hard work of your 9 dealerships that raised generosity of nine Faulkner Ciocca Dealerships that raised a whopping $90,000 for Woods this year, and a record-breaking turnout, a total of $200,000 was raised for Woods Services. Joe Faulkner and Gregg Ciocca were on hand with their families to ensure that Woods reached its goal. Funds raised at the run/walk support services not currently covered or reimbursed by any funding source (including school systems, private insurance, Medicare or Medicaid) like music and art therapy, field trips and tickets to sporting or cultural events in the community or capital improvements to our buildings and grounds.Your generosity is greatly appreciated. Thank you for supporting Woods and our annual Run for Woods 5K. Hilary H. Stephens Vice President, Development Woods Services

Subaru Loves Pets-Thankful Rescue TTAR  –  Heather D

Tattered Tails Animal Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit, non kill foster based animal rescue. As a foster based rescue we rely greatly on local events in order to help find forever homes quickly. Being part of this event allowed us to build relationships with other organizations fighting for the same cause as we are. We were also able to find an amazing potential adopter for the dog we showcased at the event. On top of if all, we continue to get recognition from the event through social media which allows us to get more exposure for other tattered tails in need of forever homes. The folks that arranged the Subaru Loves Pets event were purrrfect to work with. Not only was the event superbly organized and advertised, communication was flawless. We look forward to watching this event grow over the years! Thank you Subaru for helping make a difference!

Subaru loves pets event  –  Jennie M

Thank you so much Ciocca Subaru, for inviting us to your pet adoption event! Hair of the Dog Rescue, Inc. was so excited to be invited to participate in this wonderful event that was located right in our own neighborhood! We are a brand new animal rescue and our mission is one not many have heard about. This kind of positive exposure is invaluable to us. It was a wonderful event attended by not only our volunteers, but by my husband and children and my own personal pets. Everyone had a great time and we were able to inform our community about the Redland Dogs and how we intend to help them. We came home with two big boxes of much needed supplies! Towels and collars and kibble and even treats and toys. Thank you, so much, Ciocca Subaru, and we hope you will continue to hold events like this and we hope that we will be fortunate enough to be invited back. We thank you, and the abandoned pets of the Redlands, thank you. Your generosity is appreciated beyond words.

Subaru-Loving Family Gives Thanks and Brings Hope  –  Valerie A

Garrett was born May 4, 2010. He was a very happy and healthy baby boy – just perfect! At the end of July 2012, Garrett started to complain about back pain. After about one week of Garrett complaining about his back pain, his appetite started to decrease and he began having trouble walking and sleeping. On August 4, Garrett woke up screaming in pain and was unable to walk. He was rushed to the closest ER where they took more x-Rays and blood samples. Garrett was then transported to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for more testing. After reading the new set of x-rays, doctors at CHOP discovered that Garrett's bones were very fragile and he had very high levels of calcium in his blood. On August 7, Garrett was diagnosed with Leukemia. The very next day, Garrett received his port and on August 9, Garrett received his first dose of chemotherapy. Since that day Garrett has proven to everyone just how strong he really is, and how he’s determined to never give up. As of December 2015, Garrett is now cancer-free and has volunteered for numerous Leukemia & Lymphoma Society events. Garrett’s mom, Valerie, a long-time Subaru owner and fan, drives a 2003 bright-yellow WRX Subaru. She has such a great love for the brand, her email address is Valerie and Garrett jumped at the offer to thank the local Subaru dealership in person for their generosity and deliver blankets to patients currently undergoing treatment.

Ciocca Subaru on joining the Eco-Friendly Program!  –  Rene B

Subaru of America, Inc. congratulates Ciocca Subaru on joining the Eco-Friendly Program! Ciocca Subaru has been using Eco-Friendly conscious methods for some time.

Subaru Loves Pets  –  Ali G

Thank you Ciocca Subaru for Loving Pets. Your "Subaru Loves Pets Event" helped The Sanctuary at Haafsville Animal Rescue in many different ways. Not only did you introduce Jed (an older and extra loving beagle from our shelter) to his new forever family, the donations you collected and shared with us helped us feed and provided added comfort for our animals. Also, by allowing us to sell our home-made dog treats we were able to make a little extra money that went towards our vet bills. Our organization runs strictly on donations just like these and every little bit helps us to continue to rescue and care for animals in need. Lastly, your event gave us the chance to share information about our organization and our passion for helping animals with an entirely new group of people. This added exposure is extremely important for us to recruit volunteers and connect with potential adopters. The Sanctuary at Haafsville is excited to be celebrating 5 years of rescuing & caring for animals. Events like this are a key part of our continued success. We are truly thankful to have had the opportunity to share in this experience. Thank You From the Animals & Volunteers of The Sanctuary at Haasfville.

I will get my next Subaru from them These people are the greatest. Had my car serviced last week, and on top of doing a great job on my car, they gave me a lift to work.

Best Car Purchase Experience  –  Edward T

Fantastic experience Fantastic experience. Greg Fichter is the man. So great, we came back later that day to buy our second Subaru (in one day!). - Amilyn Lanning

Great experience all around  –  Keith L

Great experience all around Great experience all around. Everyone was very nice. We were there longer than expected since we decided to get a car while were there. They fed us pizza that was ordered for the staff. And they were even very understanding of my cranky daughter as well. All in all, very happy to tell anyone looking for a Subaru, to come here. We were recommended to come here and so glad we did. My wife drove off the lot in a brand-new Impreza. - Keith Long

A deserving winner  –  Gregg R. C

Lehigh Carbon Community College The last thing you'd expect to find at a car dealership is a pelican. But that's just what Tim Herrlinger drove away with a few weeks ago when he bought a 2014 Impreza at Ciocca Subaru in Allentown. Herrlinger, the executive director of the Lehigh Carbon Community College Foundation, won a 10-foot Pelican Summit kayak as part of a contest presented by Ciocca and the Army Navy Store of Whitehall Township. He said he was at the dealership, on Hamilton Street, looking for a car when he found out about the contest. "My Subaru had 170,000 miles on it, so it was about time for a new one. I went back to the [Ciocca] Subaru dealer and they happened to be having a raffle. I never win those things and wasn't going to enter, but my salesman, Greg Fichter, told me, 'Do it anyway.'" Fichter said he was thrilled that Herrlinger was the winner. "Out of all my customers who came in and bought a car, he was the most excited about the kayak. He wanted it, and he won it. It was awesome." Fichter said Herrlinger is also happy with his new car. "It's a 2014 Subaru Impreza, but he calls it a Subaru Impressive." -Patrick O'Donnell

Ciocca Subaru partners with Special Olympics  –  Patrick O

Bethlehem Special Olympics Treasurer Debbie Kocher was on hand to receive the check on behalf of three local programs-in Bethlehem, Lehigh County, and Northampton County-that have a total of 1,745 registered athletes. The Special Olympics organization has more than 20,000 athletes in Pennsylvania. The donation will be used by the programs to support their athletes in competition, training, transportation, uniforms, and equipment. Ciocca Subaru Owner Gregg Ciocca said he was thrilled to be able to help the Special Olympics teams and looks forward to even more work with the group. -Patrick O'Donnell
