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.

How is Fiesta Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

For the past 5 years we have given a car to a family that could benefit from a reliable vehicle. We have partnered with local churches and clinics around the city to find these families. Each year we also sponsor families to provide presents to them and make sure they have a Christmas. Throughout the year we have sponsored local youth sports programs to help promote an active healthy future for the younger generation. We sponsored everything from women’s H.S. Soccer at Albuquerque High all the way to baseball, football, and other soccer team We have committed to Subaru to build a new facility and in that we will incorporate multiple energy saving items and use green technology.

Helping a fellow Subaru Retailer in Louisiana - Chad T

We are kind of lucky living in New Mexico. The weather is amazing most of the time, we don’t have very many catastrophic storms and we definitely don’t have to worry about Hurricanes. So, when Hurricanes threaten other parts of the country, we watch from afar and don’t really understand what circumstances people in those areas are coping with. Having many friends at Baldwin Subaru in Louisiana we prayed and hoped for the best as Hurricane Ida made landfall in Louisiana last month leaving homes and businesses with out electricity. We were happy to hear from our friends at Baldwin Subaru, but also saddened to hear about the destruction to homes and businesses in their community. They told us about their efforts to get supplies to families that did not have water, food, first aid supplies or whatever they could get their hands on that people were needing in Covington. However, one thing they were unable to find and that was in short supply were tarps to put on damaged roofs and gloves for people to protect their hands while working to rebuild or clear debris. We knew that we could probably get many of these items here in New Mexico. So, we immediately went to our Local Home Depot and purchased 100 Tarps and all the Work Gloves they had in stock. We sent them out the same day to Baldwin Subaru in Covington, LA hoping they would get there in time to make a difference! Hearing how much these items were able to help people in their community made us feel as though we were helping people in our own community. Even though we are over a thousand miles apart, we were able to work together to make an impact in a community in need showing the true purpose behind the Subaru Love Promise, being committed to the lives around us no matter how close or how far those lives may be!

Fiesta Subaru - Back to School Event - Fiesta Subaru T

The majority of students in New Mexico have not participated in "in person" learning for over 18 months. Getting prepared for the first day of school in 2021 is like no other year that any of us has experienced. Many parents in New Mexico had been Furloughed, laid off or had their hours cut during the Covid-19 pandemic and have struggled getting their children ready for that BIG first Day. Teachers are running into the same problem getting their classrooms ready with limited supplies provided by their districts. On Sunday August 8, 2021 Fiesta Subaru invited any student that needed help obtaining a backpack and basic school supplies to come out and get a free backpack. We put the basic supplies in each backpack, like pencils, rulers, erasers, glue, scissors, etc........ Students from Kindergarten to High School all came out to get their backpacks! We also called for all Teachers that were having a hard time getting supplies for their classrooms to come by and get a $100 Visa gift card to help buy supplies needed that they otherwise wouldn't be able to get. After the event was over Fiesta Subaru handed out over 500 backpacks to students of all ages and 35 $100 Gift cards to teachers from all over Albuquerque and the surrounding communities. Another group of students that Fiesta Subaru wanted to lend a hand to were on the reservations. The Jemez reservation has been locked down since the pandemic started back in 2020. Restricting travel on and off the reservation to the most necessary travel needed. These children were unable to come to our event, so we went to them. One of our employees is a member of the Jemez Pueblo (still needing an escort) traveled to the reservation and delivered 70 backpacks with supplies to the students attending Sand Diego Riverside Charter School. Finally, being partnered with Apache Elementary School for Subaru Loves Learning, Fiesta wanted to make sure they had some backpacks for any of their students in need. We put aside and delivered 50 backpacks to Apache for any student that came to the first day of school without one or had one that may not be quite up to par. After all pickup and deliveries of Backpacks, Fiesta ended up handing out over 600 Backpacks with the basic school supplies and 35 $100 Gift Cards for Teachers. The event was a huge success getting students and teachers of New Mexico off to a great start for the 2021 School Season!

Fiesta Subaru Helps Teachers Heading back to Class - Kerri T

With many teachers in New Mexico going back to their classrooms for the first time in almost a year and a half, getting all the supplies they need could be a very tough challenge. Especially when they don't have enough supplies during a regular year for their classrooms. But, this is not a regular year. With covid disrupting the end of the year in 2020 and students moving to virtual learning, the supplies they would normally see were disrupted as well. Fiesta Subaru during Subaru Loves Learning month has decided to give back to the teachers in New Mexico. On Sunday August 8, 2021 we invited teachers to come out and receive $100 gift cards (during our Big Backpack Giveaway) to help get last minute supplies before school officially starts on August 11, 2021. We had an overwhelming response from New Mexico teachers, handing out over 35 gift cards in a 3 hour period. We hope to have future events making them bigger and better each year for our amazing teachers in this state and awesome students!

Generous Donation to Watermelon Mountain Ranch! - Kerri T

The past year during the Covid-19 pandemic has left many Non Profits fighting for donations to stay a float. When Watermelon Mountain ranch first partnered with Fiesta Subaru for the Share the Love event, they never thought that a donation of this magnitude would be coming. Watermelon Mountain Ranch, New Mexico's Largest No Kill Shelter, first partnered with Fiesta Subaru at the beginning of 2020 shortly after the Share the Love Event of 2019 with the plans to be their partner in 2020. The covid-19 pandemic put a lot of their plans for 2020 on hold while the nation coped with getting the virus under control. As November and the 2020 Share the Love event finally arrived, it was then got put on hold once again by the State of New Mexico due to an uptick in Covid cases. Fiesta Subaru was left with just 4 weeks of the Share the Love Event. In March of 2021 Fiesta Subaru received news of the 2020 Share the Love Donation amount and received the check to give to Watermelon Mountain Ranch. With no expecting that the check would be in the amount of $19,450.00!! A check presentation was put together to award the ranch with the money that will eventually go toward Molly's Mercy Missions to rescue animals from High Kill shelters and get them to WMR!

Fiesta Subaru Supports Locally Owned Restaurants - Chad T

When the Covid-19 pandemic started to hit and New Mexico began shutting down, local businesses were hit hard. Especially locally-owned restaurants that completely relied on being open in some capacity to generate revenue. Employees were laid off and some local restaurants started to just close their doors completely. In late May 2020, the state government started to allow local restaurants to offer a drive-up service. At that time Fiesta Subaru decided to start buying gift cards from local restaurants and give them away in our Service Department ($5 cards for an oil change) and in our Sales Department ($100 cards for a car purchase). Hoping that customers would take that $5 gift card and spend $25 at that restaurant. In all Fiesta Subaru ended up giving out over Ten Thousand Dollars in local gift cards during the month of June 2020!
