Subaru Loves to Care
Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy.
Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.
It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.
In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.
We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.
Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits, such as Meals on Wheels, ASPCA, USO, and Susan G Komen. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve it as well.
Kearny Mesa Subaru really knows how to Share the Love and they do so from the bottom of their hearts! Everyone from the General Manager, to the Service Manager, the Sales Team, the Finance Team and all the Support Staff, really give their all in supporting Meals on Wheels’ efforts in making an impact in the community during the Share the Love nationwide campaign. On December 7th, 2016, they hosted a Food Truck challenge which brought approximately 400 hungry people to the dealership to enjoy gastronomical delights and vote for their favorite offering. Local celebrity judges also awarded the “Best Food Truck” trophy. The dealership helped to secure media coverage from radio and television stations and staff worked hard to clear the lot of cars, set up the event and even clean up afterward. Employees went on routes to meet local seniors and delivered meals with a hug and a smile. And, the Sales Team ensured that everyone knew how to vote for their favorite charity after a new car was leased or purchased. These efforts culminated in funds that will provide over 6,000 meals for local homebound seniors! Kearny Mesa Subaru has taken the time to understand the importance of keeping a homebound senior independent and safe in their own home, where they wish to be. They reflect what a “community partner” is all about; one that truly makes a difference. We thank each and every one of their employees for their caring and commitment to San Diego seniors in need.
From humble beginnings in 1960 with a few women deciding to deliver meals to their elderly neighbors, to serving nearly a half a million meals throughout the entire county today, Meals on Wheels is devoted to the health, safety and well-being of San Diego seniors. It is the only agency providing meals 7 days a week, including holidays. Additionally, they cover the entire county, including delivery into the over 3,049 square miles of rural and unincorporated areas. Distributing home-delivered meals and safety checks could not be accomplished without the help of their large and caring volunteer workforce who deliver meals with a hug and a smile and ensure our local home-bound seniors are well. This is why for the past 6 years, we here at Kearny Mesa Subaru are dedicated to helping this fantastic charity by hosting a Meals on Wheels Food Truck Event to bring awareness to the needs of our elderly. During this event, our employees partner up with Meals on Wheels volunteers to help deliver meals to our local elderly residents. Also, during this event, many local food trucks set up on our lot to serve their delicious food. Each truck donates a portion of the proceeds to Meal on Wheels. A huge thank you to each local food truck vendor for supporting Meals on Wheels and believing hunger is unacceptable! Without them, this event would not be a reality each year, and due to their help, this event was nationally recognized in the past which lead to a $25,000 award to Meals on Wheels.
For the 6th year in a row, we have teamed up with one of our favorite local charities, The San Diego Humane Society, to host our Annual Share the love Pet adoption event to help some of the pups there find their way into a loving new home. This event has always been a great way for us to get to know our local families and their pups as well by offering free micro-chipping, names tags, and holiday photos. We sincerely love helping this local charity. Being able to aid in the local community helping as well has been an incredible blessing to us here at Kearny Mesa Subaru. See, here at Kearny Mesa Subaru, we have a passion for helping this great charity. We even work monthly with them to sponsor and promote one dog located there. We continue to sponsor each dog until they are finally adopted. So much fun to get to know these dogs. We realize not everyone can provide a home for a sheltered dog but even if you can’t give a dog a good home right now, there are other ways you can help. You can volunteer at the shelter, or you can donate funds to help aid in caring for these pups. However, if you are looking to give a dog a good home this holiday season, please check with the San Diego Humane Society before going anywhere else. They have pups of all ages and sizes. Each one of these dogs are in need of a safe, loving, and compassionate home. You can check them out at their website at http://www.sdhumane.org/ or by stopping by one of their locations.
Each Month Kearny Mesa Subaru partners with the San Diego Humane society to sponsor a dog that is in need of a good home and family to love. We continue to sponsor and publicize each dog on our social media sites and webpages, as well as, in our showroom until they are adopted. We are passionate about helping these doggies find the perfect companion(s) to spend their lives with. We just love it when they come in for their photo shoot here at the dealership, as it gives us the chance to interact with each of the dogs. This month we would like to introduce you to Lacy who has been at the Humane Society now for a whopping 600 days. She is a bit shy at first but if you give her the time to warm up to you, she brightens right up. She knows a long list of tricks and loves a walk around Balboa Park. To learn more about making her part of your family click here or copy and past >> http://ow.ly/r0OQ305IncI. The Humane Society has a great number of programs and events for families and their pets. Including their PAWS program which helps local San Diego residents keep their beloved pets when times get tough.

We urge you from the bottom of our hearts if you are looking to give a dog a good home to please check out the San Diego Humane Society.

Michael Levinsky is a local San Diego resident and business owner of Paws for a Cause. Michael has been battling cancer for several years now being diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL). His business connects cancer patients, like himself, to with those who are looking to help and pay to have their dogs walked. Michael learned during treatment that dogs do not transmit germs in the same way humans do, nor do most diseases cross between species. So, given this fact mixed with his entrepreneur past, this gave Michael a wonderful idea to start a business that would benefit cancer patients, like himself, to get out and earn an income to help pay medical expenses. Michael came to a point where he realized he needed a new vehicle. He had been looking into a few models Subaru has to offer and reached out to our General Manager David McCracken. Mr. McCracken jumped at the chance to help Michael. Kearny Mesa Subaru along with Subaru of American felt it was crucial to help Michael get into the Crosstrek he wanted that is so important to his business success. We appreciate that Michael reached out to us and we wanted to ensure ensure he had a safe, reliable, and comfortable vehicle for him, his employees, and his clients. If you reside in the San Diego area and looking for a dog walker all while contributing to a good cause by helping local cancer patients, please contact Michael. You can check out his website at http://pawsinthecity.info/ or by calling (858) 583-5389.
The MEYROW Foundation is dedicated to creating programs that improve the lives of those individuals living with Parkinson's and their caregivers. They are committed to enhancing awareness among the younger population and building a fund to financially aid individuals and families living with Parkinson’s. The ultimate long-term goal is to build a Parkinson’s Wellness Center. On May 19th 2016 MEYROW Foundation held The Play for Parkinson’s 7th annual golf tournament at Madera’s Golf Club in Poway, California. The tournament, held since 2009, brings together like-minded individuals who share the MEYROW vision. Kearny Mesa Subaru is a proud supporter of the MEYROW Foundation's vision and hope that we can help bring awareness to the struggles those who live with Parkinson's face as well as the caretakers and family members of those affected by Parkinson's disease. Here at Kearny Mesa Subaru we are fortunate to have an employer which shares the desire to support the MEYROW cause. We hope, with our support, many more individuals will come together to support the MEYROW Foundation. You can check out their website at http://themeyrowfoundation.org/ to see what you can do to help.
This was our first opportunity to participate in the national Share the Love campaign and we were so fortunate to have received more than $21,000 in donations from Subaru thanks to their customers and dedicated staff. To showcase our partnership and offer fun activities for their customers, we conducted a holiday adoption event that included adoptions, microchip clinic, and a holiday photo shoot. Thank you to everyone who participated. These opportunities not only help animals in our care, but animals in need all across San Diego County!
When you see a Butterfly many of us stop and admire its beauty. There is something breathtakingly beautiful about them that make you stop to admire it. But, what if we no longer had the chance to gaze upon its beauty? Well, that could become a reality as the population of the Monarch Butterfly has substantially decreased in the past two decades here in Northern America. Subaru as part of our Subaru Loves the Earth initiative for the month of April has teamed up with the National Wildlife Federation to help save the Monarch Butterfly population. We here at Kearny Mesa Subaru jumped at the chance become Butterfly Heroes. We have teamed up with Ms. Stewart's Transitional Kindergarten class at Ocean Beach Elementary to educate our young and their families about the Monarch Butterfly and how they can help save these precious pollinators. Ms. Stewart's class during the month of April learned about the life cycle of the butterfly and have their own habitats to study how a caterpillar turns into a beautiful butterfly. Therefore, her class is more than happy to also become Butterfly Heroes. Ms. Stewart has also offered to take our Certified Wildlife Habitat that we have taken care of to continue to educate her students about how they can help. Please, stop by our showroom to get your kit and see how you can become a Butterfly Hero so our future generations can admire one of the planets most beautiful pollinators!
Here at Kearny Mesa Subaru we take pride in our community and want to help out in any way possible. This is why we are happy to be a part of the Love the Earth E-Waste Recycling program. Here we believe in more than just being a Subaru retailer; we believe in being an active participant in doing what is right for our community and our environment. Not because it is good for business, but because it simply is the right thing to do. Throughout the month of April we are able to collect quite a bit of electronics that will now be recycled at All Green Electronic Recycling center rather than winding up in a landfill. Everything from old television sets to used batteries and energy efficient light bulbs was collected in an attempt to increase awareness and encourage our employees and the local community to recycle their old electronics. Little do people know, even those greeting cards that play music have an electronic circuit board. These electronic circuit boards are e-waste and should not be thrown away in the trash. If you ever question whether you can or cannot recycle certain items, we encourage you to contact any local e-waste recycling center for answers. It is our hope through programs like these we can raise awareness and help give back and improve the community and world in which we live in.
Kearny Mesa Subaru has been hosting an annual adoption event for the last five years! Not only has this partnership found homes for many dogs and kittens, it has brought more awareness about the importance of adoption. Including San Diego Humane Society in various advertising mediums to promote the event reminds the public how many animals are looking for homes. This partnership has expanded to include the Animal Admirer program, where Kearny Mesa Subaru sponsors an animal working various promotional efforts to share the animal's story to help find he/she a loving home.
Sometimes you are fortunate, and sometimes you are INCREDIBLY fortunate. That is how Meals-on-Wheels Greater San Diego, Inc. (MOWGSD) feels about their relationship with Kearny Mesa Subaru. Every year, during the months of November and December, Subaru America allows customers to give back $250 to 5 nationwide charities as part of their Share the Love Campaign. Dealerships may also select local charities to receive funds from their regional foundation based upon customer selection. This year, the Kearny Mesa Dealership chose MOWGSD as their charity of choice! Customers who wished to keep funds in their local area were allowed to select MOWGSD. This resulted in a check for $11,481 or 3,280 meals for San Diego seniors! For the last four years, Dave McCracken, General Manager/VP, and his team of stellar employees, have given their ALL to help MOWGSD tell the story of need that exists to provide nutritious meals and socialization for seniors in San Diego. They clear their entire front car lot to make room for 10-15 food trucks and the 400-500 patrons who come to vote for their favorite menu. The day is complete with celebrity chefs judging senior-friendly entree selections; quite a gastronomic spectacle covered by the press and TV stations alike. It is amazing that the dealership, one of the largest in the country, puts their philanthropy before the number of cars that could be sold. They are truly committed to making a difference in their community.
Kearny Mesa Subaru embraced Subaru's Share the Love campaign by volunteering with Meals-on-Wheels San Diego. Meals-on-Wheels Greater San Diego, Inc. is committed to reducing the isolation experienced by so many elderly. Meals are delivered to seniors homes by volunteers. Frequently the volunteer may be the only person the senior sees all day, providing human contact and a safety net, particularly for those seniors living alone. Every year for the last 4 years Kearny Mesa Subaru has been hosting The Annual Subaru Share the Love Food Truck Event, raising thousands of dollars for the local Meals on Wheels chapter. The last three Share the Love Food Truck Events drew large crowds, over 400 people, at Kearny Mesa Subaru and have supported Meals-on-Wheels in raising over $40,000. Kearny Mesa Subaru is committed to volunteering and giving to many local charities throughout San Diego it is our privilege and honor to do so.
