The 2019 Subaru Love Promise Customer and Community 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.

#1 Cochran Subaru of Butler County Delivers Hope  –  Breanna S

Patients at Butler Health System Medical Oncology on June 24 were overjoyed to receive a surprise courtesy of #1 Cochran Subaru of Butler County. The dealership delivered 80 blankets, 30 arts & crafts kits, and uplifting care card messages handwritten by #1 Cochran’s customers and staff. #1 Cochran Subaru of Butler County’s General Sales Manager Michael McGlumphy and Service Manager John Tofil worked with staff members from Butler Health and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to “share the love” with patients at the cancer center. Michael and John took the time to get to know the men and women receiving treatment personally and handed out the blankets one-on-one. To patients receiving chemotherapy, air-conditioned treatment facilities can feel incredibly cold, and many hospitals rely on donations of quilts, afghans and other blankets to keep their patients warm and comfortable. The arts and crafts kits contain Crayola crayons, markers, and more, and can help patients pass the time on their own, or can be used to entertain children who need to accompany their parents or family members to appointments. This is the fourth year that #1 Cochran Subaru of Butler County chose to partner with LLS to help make treatment a little easier for local cancer patients through their annual “Subaru Loves to Care” program. #1 Cochran deserves recognition for their continuing partnership with LLS, and they have our gratitude for bringing hope and warmth to cancer patients in the Butler area.

#1 Cochran Subaru of Butler Helps Animals In Need  –  Jennifer D

#1 Cochran Subaru of Butler 2019 Share the Love event to benefit the Butler County Humane Society was a smashing success, with $37,027 raised between November 2018 and January 2019. The Butler County Humane Society, a non-profit organization, in association with the Helen Spaide Albig Adoption Center, provides a temporary, safe, no-kill shelter for homeless, adoptable dogs and cats ultimately placing them in loving homes or with caring rescues while increasing community awareness of the humane treatment of animals through education, spay-neuter programs, rabies clinics, and the respect for life. In 2018, BCHS helped more than 505 cats and dogs have a second chance at life through adoption. BCHS operates solely on community support and donations. In addition to supporting operational costs, this donation will allow the BCHS to care for animals that have been abandoned, abused, and neglected and cover a significant number of spay and neuter surgeries for adoptable cats and dogs at the shelter. The generosity of Subaru of America Inc., #1 Cochran Subaru of Butler County, and Subaru customers is truly extraordinary. On behalf of the BCHS staff, volunteers, supporters, cats and dogs, and adoptive families, Thank You!


BCHS Shelter Pets Feel The Love  –  Jennifer D

To date, #1 Cochran Subaru of Butler County has provided the BCHS with over $65,000 as well as thousands of dog and cat supplies to help our shelter population. As the only companion animal shelter in Butler County, BCHS’ mission is to provide a temporary, safe, no-kill shelter for homeless adoptable dogs and cats placing them in loving homes or with caring rescues while increasing community awareness of the humane treatment of animals through education, spay-neuter programs, rabies clinics and the respect for life. Each day of BCHS’ 121 years of service is a passionate adventure wrapped in community service led by a dedicated volunteer Board of Directors, dependent on contributions, grants, and fundraising programs for its existence. The funds provided by #1 Cochran Subaru of Butler County have been instrumental in helping us meet this mission!


Cochran Subaru’s 3-Peat for Cancer Patients  –  Breanna S

For the third straight year, #1 Cochran Subaru of Butler County partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) on their month-long “Subaru Loves to Care” campaign. On July 23, Michael Rizzitano and Matt Reade from the #1 Cochran Subaru of Butler County team personally delivered a donation of new blankets and arts and crafts kits to Butler Health System Medical Oncology.The blankets will be distributed to patients receiving chemotherapy or other medical oncology treatments. Kayla Bylinowski, a physician assistant at Butler Health, told LLS that their patients really enjoy the blankets because the facility is so cold. Patients specifically ask for the Subaru blankets, so luckily, the 80 new blankets will go a long way and last a long time at the treatment center.The 50 arts and crafts kits were filled with Crayola products and can be used by any children receiving treatment or who accompany their parents or family members to appointments. LLS owes a debt of gratitude to everyone at Subaru of America and #1 Cochran Subaru of Butler County for making this program possible. Thank you for continuing to join us in our mission to cure blood cancers and to improve the lives of patients and their families throughout our local communities.

Bringing Warmth to Local Cancer Patients  –  Breanna S

#1 Cochran Subaru of Butler County’s donation of 80 blankets arrived at Butler Health System Medical Oncology at the perfect time. Their treatment area is notorious for freezing staff and patients to the bone, and the facility depends on local churches to contribute afghans in order to keep their patients warm. The facility exhausted their supply a few days before #1 Cochran’s visit on June 27, so the staff was thrilled to receive brand-new, quality throws courtesy of the dealership and Subaru of America. Pictured (L-R): Butler Subaru Sales Manager Mike Rizzitano, Butler Medical Oncology Practice Manager Heather Gault, and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society - Western PA & WV chapter Patient Access Manager Angela Austin.


LLS Donation  –  Nicole S

A heartwarming delivery to patients at Butler Health System Oncology. Butler Subaru Sales Manager Mike Rizzitano & our partners at the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Western PA & WV Chapter delivered blankets, arts & crafts kits and care cards for patients.


Cochran Subaru and Butler Carved in Ice  –  Peggy W

Thanks to Cochran Subaru's support of the Butler CARVED IN ICE festival Feb. 11th, Butler AM Rotary Charities can provide more funds to help Butler's children in need. The Subaru 14-block ice sculpture of one of their sedans was a huge hit at the event, and children and parents "sat" in the sculpture to look out the windows and have pictures taken. The non-profit Charities donates all the proceeds to help fund local programs for children in need such as the Weekend Backpack Program so kids have food to eat over the weekend and special programs for children with disabilities.It also annually supports leadership training events for high school juniors and seniors in Butler County and 2 scholarships at Butler County Community College. Butler AM Rotary Charities provides summer camp funding for local programs serving youth with disabilities and to the PA State Police Camp Cadet program among many others. The 2018 goal for the Charities is to identify a large community project that will provide a positive impact and be a lasting resource for our children and youth in the community. Then many of the festival's proceeds would be directed to help fund the project. We hope that Cochran Subaru will continue to work with Butler AM Rotary Charities to help support Butler's children and youth.


The Love for my son  –  Cheryl W

I recently purchased a Subaru Forester at the end of May. I saw an article on Facebook yesterday that Subaru was supporting cancer patients with blankets and messages of hope. My son has been battling Hodgkins Lymphoma for eight years. I went back to my Subaru dealer today and asked if I could fill out one of the cards of hope for patients. He was so kind and let me have a bracelet and a "Subaru Loves to care " badge. I am so appreciative that the car I love is also making a difference in this world. Thank you, Michael"s mom
