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.

Sendell Donation Helps Local Cancer Patients  –  Breanna S

Sendell Subaru, in partnership with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), recently provided a much-needed donation to the Arnold Palmer Pavilion. On July 10, representatives from the dealership delivered “care cards” hand-written by customers and 80 blankets to the Greensburg-based cancer center. The cards and blankets will be distributed to patients receiving chemotherapy, who often get cold during treatment, making the blankets a source of comfort even in the middle of a warm summer. The dynamic brother-sister duo of Bill Mohler and Chris King, Sendell Subaru’s owners, were on hand with three members of their staff to personally deliver the donation. LLS Board member and Senior Vice President of Hefren-Tillotson Jim Beck also made time to stop by and help with the blanket delivery. The nurses at the Arnold Palmer Pavilion enthusiastically thanked the Sendell team, telling Bill and Chris how much the patients love the blankets, and how this gesture brightens the day for so many people. The Arnold Palmer Pavilion medical staff are testing so many patients in the community that they estimated that the blankets would probably all be given away in only a day or two.Thank you, Sendell Subaru and Subaru of America, for partnering with LLS on this program for three wonderful years! We appreciate that you continue to join us in our mission to cure blood cancers and improve the lives of patients and their families right here in Western PA. Pictured, from left, are Jim Beck, Kevin Winwood, Tom Pyo, Bill Mohler, Henry Bochorski, John Bistline, and Chris King.

Joy for Me, Joy for Others  –  Katy D

Meet Callie (short for Caledonia, honoring her Scots heritage), a Shetland Sheep Dog who was a purchased puppy, but who "adopted" me by curling in my lap, falling asleep the day we met. Callie's sweet personality, never having met another human she doesn't love, are the characteristics that show how well-suited she is to becoming a Therapy Pet. We will continue with her training, eventually taking that love to those in need of that rich & unconditional loving some special dogs can offer to those in need of healing & comfort.

Sendell Brings Hope, Warmth to Cancer Patients  –  Breanna S

This was the second year in a row that Sendell Subaru partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society on their month-long “Subaru Loves to Care” campaign. Owners Chris Mohler-King and Bill Mohler along with three other members of the Sendell team had the opportunity to pass out blankets to patients receiving cancer treatment at Arnold Palmer Cancer Center – Mt. View. Sendell Subaru donated a generous 80 blankets to the facility, so the center also set aside dozens of blankets to distribute over the coming days. Alexis Kolman and Jennifer Mooney of UPMC told Chris and Bill how happy their patients were after last year’s delivery and how much the facility appreciated being chosen to receive these blankets again, a comfort to patients who get cold during treatment. Along with the blankets, Sendell brought 10 arts and crafts kits for any kids receiving treatment, along with stacks of heartwarming messages written by Subaru customers to inspire cancer patients throughout their battle. Staff from both organizations and patients all had fun with the experience!

Typically, the animals showcased on WHJB (a local radio station) during the Adoptable Pet of the Week are the more difficult to place animals or the ones that have been at the no-kill shelter for an extended period of time.

The Survivor Meets the Patient  –  Codi F

Brother-and-sister team Bill Mohler and Chris Mohler-King, owners of Sendell Subaru, joined our 2016 Girl of the Year Olivia at The Arnold Palmer Cancer Pavilion in Greensburg, PA, to pass out #SubaruLovesToCare blankets delivered via a Subaru Outback! Olivia is not only a special needs child, but is also currently in remission from acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Olivia was diagnosed in June 2006, shortly after she turned two years old. However, Olivia’s journey began the day she was born. Her blood work revealed blast cells, so the next two years brought countless lab visits which involved tracking and monitoring her blood work. After her formal Leukemia diagnosis, what was thought to be her final round of chemo in December 2006, a relapse in October 2007, and her first bone marrow transplant in February 2008, Olivia just celebrated her 12th birthday and is ready to tackle the world. Karen, pictured, was receiving chemo during our visit. She told her nurse that she would be happy to join us for a photo to thank Sendell for thinking of her and all cancer patients by donating these blankets which will keep them all warm during treatment. Without hesitation, Karen grabbed her blanket and chemo pole and headed outside to get in the picture with her nurse following quickly behind. If you look closely, you can see Karen’s pole and IV bag in the photo!
