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. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve it as well.
Inspired by Sacramento’s own Capital Public Radio’s CapRadio Garden at Sacramento State University and their monarch butterfly habitat, Elk Grove Subaru has partnered with the National Wildlife Federation Butterfly Heroes program to bring nature to Elk Grove and Sacramento elementary schools. All butterflies need host plants for their caterpillars to eat. Monarchs feed on nectar, so planting plenty of native wildflowers is key to providing nectar from spring, through summer and into fall. Milkweed is another plant that is vital to monarch caterpillars, and without it, monarchs can’t produce the next generation. Elk Grove Subaru will be donating hundreds of seed packets for both flowers and milkweed to area elementary schools so they may create, use and maintain their own schoolyard habitat for monarchs. The flowers and plants the children watch grow will attract monarch butterflies and other pollinators, both absolutely essential to the environment. The school kids will be creating their own outdoor learning classroom that will teach them invaluable lessons in nature.
Sharing the love at the California State Capitol on August 1, 2015 more than 425 cyclists & over 100 volunteers gathered at the Capitol Dome under the full moon to help foster youth. The 2nd Annual Lunar Lunacy Ride was officially kicked off by the official start car, a Lasher's Elk Grove Subaru Outback. But Elk Grove Subaru did more than start the ride, they were the major sponsor, arose early in the morning for TV pre-event publicity, publicized the ride & had a great group of riders join the fun and made it possible to nearly double the funds raised last year to support foster youth served by CASA-Sacramento & other local children's charities. Their generous "Top Gear" sponsorship will change kids' lives! Lunar Lunacy Ride loves Elk Grove Subaru's commitment to the children of Greater Sacramento.
Over the years Elk Grove Subaru has partnered the Sacramento SPCA, Alpha K-9 and the Sacramento Front Street Shelter. Dasko, the German Shepherd from Alpha K-9 service dog training center has become like a mascot and been featured in many commercials. Elk Grove Subaru has recently highlighted adoptable puppies from the Front Street shelter in their current summer television commercial campaign called Puppy LoveÂ. The response from the community has been overwhelming, with calls and letters thanking us for including the puppies. Not only were the puppies from the shelter adorable, they were adopted right away. Cheddar the Chihuahua and his sister KeeKee were adopted by people from both the advertising agency and Elk Grove Subaru. The Puppy LoveÂ commercials have highlighted our Love PromiseÂ said General Manager Vince Bloom. We are proud to support all our animal rescue charities.Â
Lasher Elk Grove Subaru is a Subaru dealership that prides itself on keeping the Earth green. During the month of April we asked our customers and the citizens of Sacramento to partner with us in the Subaru Loves the Earth e-waste program. The community at large was asked to recycle their electronic waste at our stores for proper disposal. As a thank you participants earned the opportunity to win the chance to have their garbage bill paid for an entire year! "We are truly thankful for our customers and the community's efforts to keep things green," said General Manager Vince Bloom.
Elk Grove Subaru Loves Alpha K9, the non-profit organization that trains and donates service dogs to injured veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome. Many local vets have benefited from the unique service that only Alpha K9 provides. Since their foundation Alpha K9 has placed over 500 Service Dogs stretching across 32 states and Canada. And now they'll be able to help many more. Vince Bloom, General Manager of Lasher's Elk Grove Subaru presented a check for $15,627 to Kevin Cameron, CEO of Alpha K9 for money raised during the Subaru Share The Love Event held November-December, 2014. "We are grateful to Elk Grove Subaru for their continued support. This donation will really make a huge difference in the lives of many veterans," said Kevin Cameron. "We are proud that the work we do will continue."
Elk Grove Subaru has helped plant the seeds of success and health for Sacramento students and Central Valley citizens by sponsoring Capital Public Radio's community project: "The Garden". Growing concerns for the health of our community both physically and financially are all rooted in our food. Sacramento is part of one of the richest agricultural regions in the world-growing approximately 50% of the fruits and vegetables that America eats. To help bring about public awareness to the issues regarding food Capital Public Radio has planted a garden with the help of Elk Grove Subaru. This state-of-the-art vegetable and fruit garden is located right outside the broadcast headquarters and is dedicated to health care and education (food literacy). Sacramento school children will have a chance to roll up their sleeves and dig in the dirt; to learn what healthy food is, how it grows and where it comes from. Eight schools located primarily in South Sacramento (an area that has struggled with unemployment and poverty) have been chosen to participate. They are: Pacific Elementary, Leonardo da Vinci School, Grant High School, Camellia Basic Elementary, American Legion High School, Cristo Rey High School, Harmon Johnson Elementary and Noralto Elementary school. "It is our hope to better the health of our community and participate in the education of our youth,"said General Manager Vince Bloom.
Local Marine Tony Ray Wise, Jr. is a veteran of the Iraq war. For his service and heroic actions during combat Tony was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal with the combat distinguishing device Valor. However, after returning home Tony was diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome. At least 20 percent of American veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars suffer from PTSD. Over half don't seek treatment. Elk Grove Subaru sponsored a special event, Alpha Dog K9 Competition. It was here where Tony and Ken, a specially trained PTSD service dog were paired. Alpha K9 is a non-profit organization, based in Sacramento, CA, whose mission it is to save lives one dog at a time by providing highly skilled and effective Service Dogs and Working Dogs. The event raised over $1,200 dollars. The recognition brought by Elk Grove Subaru, allowed Alpha K9 to raise additional funding that helped them donate 208 services dogs! Not only were Tony and Ken teamed up but 203 other veterans were also able to start a journey of recovery. Today Tony's life is changing for the better. I would like to thank Vince Bloom and Elk Grove Subaru for their dedication to this cause said Tony. In 2014 Lasher's Elk Grove Subaru donated $20,000 dollars and five service dogs to Alpha K9.
Caring for and creating shelter for animals is a "pet" project of Elk Grove Subaru, part of the Lasher Automotive Group. With their sponsorship of the 3rd Annual Polo Classic benefitting the Sacramento Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals they have been able to help animals get the care they need. Their elite fundraiser for the Sacramento SPCA provides an experience most people can't get locally anywhere else and comes complete with the excitement and regalia reminiscent of royal polo matches. The Polo Classic is a major fundraiser for the SPCA. This year they raised over $80,000 dollars. With the monies raised through this event the Sacramento SPCA aims to complete their own "Field of Dreams". The dream for the future is a plot of land slated to include a behavior and training/education center; dormitories for visiting veterinary students and much more. The Sacramento SPCA is a local, independent non-profit organization that does not receive government funding. The funds needed to help both homeless and owned animals in need are raised through donations and events like that of the Polo Classic. Their mission is to foster a loving and compassionate community for animals and people by providing assistance, creating lifelong relationships, and saving lives. "We at Elk Grove Subaru always looks forward to the Polo Classic and in turn time helping our local SPCA," said Vince Bloom, General Manger of Elk Grove Subaru.
