We've been nationally recognized for our dedication to our community and the Subaru Love Promise.
We're honored to receive the 2022 Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment Award. This award nationally recognizes Subaru retailers who are making the world a better place while demonstrating an outstanding commitment to supporting passions and causes in local communities. These efforts are focused in important areas such as the environment, community, health, education, and pets.
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.
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.
Subaru and our retailers are committed to protecting and preserving the Earth, not just by our words, but also by our actions.
Since 2018, as part of the Subaru Loves the Earth initiative, Subaru and retailers across the country have partnered with TerraCycle® and have collected over 7 million pieces of hard-to-recycle trash from their communities. Items such as snack bag wrappers, coffee cups, or used cabin air filters from service areas have been diverted from landfills and given a second life by TerraCycle when it is converted into durable furniture and other usable items.
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 369,000 award-winning science books. In addition, through our partnerships with Staples and Adoptaclassroom.org we supported teachers and students with donations of $400,000 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.
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.
Subaru and Lou Fusz Subaru St. Peters believe in making a positive impact on the communities in which we live and work. We uphold that belief through our Love Promise Community Commitment. Every month, we select inspiring stories from customers and partners from around our area who strive to support our collective commitment and feature them here.
"What is Slumber Paw-ty? The second annual Greater St. Louis Area Slumber Pawty will take place on March 5, 2022 for a 24-hour period. This collaborative fundraising event will take place at fifteen participating local animal welfare organizations with all proceeds going directly to help homeless dogs and cats in our community.Here’s how it works: Five Acres Animal Shelter will recruit at least fifteen raving fans who are committed to raising $1,000 each for the shelter. This event is 100% virtual and takes place largely on social media. These individuals will spend the night encouraging their followers to support their shelter by sharing updates with their followers on social media about the Five Acres mission, promote our programs and ask for donations toward their fundraising goal." We were thrilled to be invited to this virtual event! Here at Lou Fusz we chose the top tier donation of 500.00 dollars, donated a handful of new parent Bark Boxes, and loaned them an Ascent to have the pups get out and feel the wind in the hair! We are honored to have such a close relationship with 5 Acres and are so thankful to all they do for all the 4 legged friends we have out there!
Driving home one day one of our Managers (Jessica) noticed what they thought was a young squirrel run across the street right in front of them. She pulled over to see if she could help as it look injured. To her surprise it was a kitten, not a squirrel. When she did end up getting close enough (the kitten got stuck trying to escape) she noticed that the kitten was injured. Jessica then took the kitten straight to the vet. After the look over, it was discovered that she had a broken jaw and needed surgery. Jessica knew right then it needed to happen and that she would take Coco home after! Weeks later, Coco is fully healed and part of the family including two other cats and one new rescue pup! Thanks for what you did Jessica and John! Coco is for sure worth it!
On July 26th, 2022, St. Louis, MO had a 100-year flood drop 8-9 inches of rain in seven hours, breaking a 107-year record. Highways were impassible, basements were flooded, and residents were stranded awaiting water rescues. One of local animal shelters, Stray Paws Rescue, had up to 3 feet of water in their facility. Unfortunately, the storm hit so quickly, some of their resident animals did not make it. This was devastating to so many people in this area, us included. Lou Fusz Subaru St. Peters immediately reached out to Stray Paws to see what they needed. As soon as we got the list, we posted on our social media asking for help. For the next two weeks we collected dog and cat food, additional kennels, seven trash bags full of blankets, as well as miscellaneous items that were lost in the flood. All these items came from our employees, customers, and our local community. We filled up an entire Subaru Ascent full of the items we collected and headed to the shelter. As we were dropping off the supplies, we also donated $3,500 to their rebuilding efforts. While our donations helped address the immediate need, the bigger issue was their facility. While there, we were given a tour of the building and saw firsthand the devastation the flood had caused. After seeing this, we went from donating supplies to assisting in their rebuilding effort. First on the list was replacing the drywall which our local Home Depot graciously donated. As soon as we got back to the dealership our GSM John Molloy called a family member that does drywall to see if he would be interested in helping. Without hesitation, that family member volunteered his time to replace all the drywall! In total, our efforts saved them $4,500 in materials and labor! The last piece that we were able to help with were their custom shirts for their fundraising efforts. Their supplier fell through, so we connected them with our local partner. The rebuilding effort is still underway but we’re happy to say all of their animals have been placed in foster homes and are safe and sound! "Thank you, Lou Fusz Subaru, for the check, food, and blankets. They have been reaching out since day 1 figuring out ways to help us and we couldn't be more appreciative." -Stray Paws
We all love pets here at Lou Fusz Subaru! We have a close relationship with 5 Acres Rescue, the only no kill shelter in St. Charles county. Getting with them, we found out what items they needed the most, and brought them as much that could fit in a Crosstrek! More importantly, we got to spend some time with the "Underdogs!" 5 Acres let us meet the dogs that have been there the longest and spoil them with some toys and treats! More than that though, we got to spread the word though this video to anyone looking to adopt that these pups are ready and waiting for their "Furever" home! Thank you 5 Acres for everything you do, and thank you Subaru for not just saying it, but living it...Love, It what makes Subaru a Subaru...
5 Acres rescue a local no kill shelter put on a 2 day event for animal lovers! It consisted of a Friday night Glow run/walk and a Saturday Paw Parade! Local vendors came out to support 5 Acres and all their 4 legged friends. We were thrilled when they reached out to us at Lou Fusz Subaru to help in any way we could! We participated in both events and handed out pet supplies and toys! We also are getting with them to bring in some Underdogs to our Make a Dogs day at the store on the 22nd. Thanks Subaru and 5 Acres for this awesome opportunity!
Lou Fusz Subaru St Peters wanted to do something positive for our community and Let them know that Lou Fusz and Subaru are more than just a car company. We wanted to give back and we also wanted to have an impact on our city and its citizens. We bounced around several ideas before settling in on one that we felt made sense. We decided to outfit a vehicle and drive around town doing random acts of kindness. We called it Lou Fusz Happy Hour. We decided we could go to local fast food restaurants, and pay for people's food, without them having prior knowledge. We picked 2 restaurants, and decided to pay for customer's orders as they came through the drive thru. It was a hit! People were honking their horns and thanking us for the free lunch. We also had a chance to stop by the Cottleville Fire Department and Cottleville Police Department, and dropped off Crave Cases to them. We thanked them for their public service and handed over the food. The guys were all really great. It went so well that we have decided this will be an ongoing event, so keep a lookout for a Lifted Crosstrek, which could be coming to a restaurant near you soon!
My wife and I have purchased two Subaru's' in the past year and it is all because of Juan Gozalo, a sales person for Lou Fusz Subaru in St Peter's, MO. Juan exemplifies what it means to love Subaru and it shows. He is knowledgeable and speaks from the heart. He ensured we were 100% satisfied when we purchased our 2019 Crosstrek. Because of his enthusiasm for the brand and making me a believer through a year of Subaru ownership, I decided it was time for me to make the leap and purchase my own Subaru, a 2020 Outback Onyx XT. Juan was the first person I called and he made it his own personal goal to help me find the right Subaru. Juan's dedication to his customers and steadfast love for Subaru is what made us a Subaru family for life.
Wow! Thank you so much to our friends at Lou Fusz Subaru! We recently were the lucky recipients of a very generous donation of high-quality Science books. In addition to the quality of the books, we are also so excited about the multiple copies of each book. There is no substitute for engaging literature that gets our students excited about learning, and we are thrilled that multiple students will be able to simultaneously read and explore the science topics covered in these books. These texts support our focus on providing student experiences that get them excited about STEM and enhance our goal to promote learning at high levels. We cannot thank you enough for the generous and thoughtful donation! Sincerely, Mrs. Parn Principal Duello Elementary School
Ed Federman, Jessica Lipe and Landon Bigogno from Lou Fusz Subaru – St. Peters and Jane Smith of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) gathered at Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital on Friday, June 22nd to deliver blankets and craft kits for the young cancer patients at the hospital. Subaru and LLS are partnering during the month of June to help keep patients warm as they continue their fight against cancer, and to help spread awareness of LLS and Subaru of America’s goal to provide hope and care, one gesture at a time. Ryan Jennings of Cardinal Glennon was on hand to accept the 80 blankets and 10 craft kits on behalf of the young patients. Cardinal Glennon will distribute the blankets and craft kits to their patients over the next few weeks. Thank you Subaru for sharing the love and providing warm blankets to the children of Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital! These small gestures of kindness have a huge impact!
Lou Fusz Subaru – St.Peters’ General Sales Manager, Dave Arbogast, delivered 80 blankets and 10 Craft Kits to SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Foundation on Tuesday, July 18th. Ruth DePew, with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society - Gateway Chapter, helped unload the generous donation from Subaru and present them to Aleeza Granote, Hematology/Oncology Social Worker & Case Manager. Aleeza told us that blankets are one of the most popular requests of patients getting treatment in the hospital, they will be greatly appreciated! We visited with Vicky Tomber, Executive Assistant, and learned more about the mission of the Foundation. As we were saying our goodbyes, someone came in and asked if we could drop off a couple cases of blankets to the hospital, they needed them for patients! So, back in the car with two cases of soft, warm blankets - delivered within moments of the request to SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Hospital. Who would have thought that delivering blankets on a triple digit, sweltering summer day in the city of Saint Louis would be a good idea? We do and We did! LLS – Gateway is proud to partner with Lou Fusz Subaru – St. Peters to help provide care, support, and warmth to patients and their families. Thank you Lou Fusz Subaru! #subarulovestocare #gatewaylls #fusz

Subaru has a great reputation for making cars that support healthy and sustainable lifestyles, so when they approached us with an interest in sponsoring the Earth Day Festival, we knew it would be a great fit! Partnering with Subaru and area dealers has shown us how they have earned their reputation. Subaru will be supporting the zero-waste effort at the Earth Day Festival, where we implement numerous strategies, including working with vendors, volunteers and attendees to make sure all possible event waste is diverted from the landfill through reducing, reusing, recycling, and composting. With Subaru's support, St. Louis Earth Day is the most sustainably-produced outdoor festival in the region. The purpose of the Earth Day Festival is to advance sustainability in the region through celebration, education and action. Join us on Sunday April 26, 2015 to learn more about how you can "Share the Love" for the planet, people, and prosperity. www.stlouisearthday.org Thank you, Lou Fusz-St. Peters!
The Lou Fusz organization has engaged the Subaru Love Promise wholeheartedly by supporting initiatives and organizations in our community. In Lou Fusz's two year association with the Humane Society of Missouri, we have assisted in raising $20,000 to help in their mission of education for the general public and finding homes for neglected and abandoned animals. Also in support of this important organization, we at Lou Fusz, provide several other forms of support including two pet adoption events and advertising for the Humane Society to inform the public of their important work. We've also provided a dog park at our Creve Cour location for the use of not only our customers but to the general public. This allows people in the area, who primarily live in condos and apartments to have a safe and secure location for pet exercise. The Humane Society of Missouri is an important partner because they rescue and adopt small animals, large animals such as horses, offer veterinary services to all and seek to stop animal abuse and neglect of all kinds. We're proud to support those efforts!
