The 2018 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.

Love Promise Stories from Mark Miller Subaru Midtown

1 yr., 15 Imprezas, 60k miles, 8,600 lives touched  –  Mike A

1 yr., 15 Imprezas, 60k miles, 8,600 lives touched

Over the past 12 months, and with the generous support of Mark Miller Subaru, employees and community members of Volunteers of America, Utah have driven more than 60,000 miles across our state, inside of 15 Subaru Imprezas, allowing us to touch the lives of over 8,600 individuals experiencing homelessness, mental illness, and addiction. While these individuals may not have the financial, mental, or physical capacity to own a Subaru of their own, we believe that this should not preclude them from receiving the love and care that a Subaru can so delicately and generously deliver. These Subaru Imprezas empower us to reach those who need our help, and they do so safely throughout the year. This includes, of particular importance, delivering support to individuals who’ve taken shelter outdoors in the mountain valleys along the Wasatch Front.As one of the VOA’s Homeless Outreach Supporters, Mark Miller Subaru has helped to make this outreach effort possible. From assisting with financial contributions to collecting critical resources, such as food, clothing, and health care products, we’re able to aid the most vulnerable humans among us. When others look beyond the timid, lost, and sometimes fearful eyes of those in need of help, Volunteers of America and Mark Miller Subaru embrace these souls with open and devoted arms. That’s because every human on earth is deserving of compassion and love. It’s so fitting that we’re able to deliver care in a Subaru because, after all, it’s Love that makes a Subaru, a Subaru.


Special Delivery: Bleu Spreads Hope & Love  –  Emily M

Special Delivery: Bleu Spreads Hope & Love

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society had an absolute blast with the folks at Mark Miller Subaru Midtown delivering warmth in the form of blankets and message of hope to the patients at Utah Cancer Specialist Clinic in Murray on June 29th. Megan and her crew at Mark Miller brought along their MVP (Most Valuable Puppy) Suba Bleu to help with the delivery. Before heading inside to deliver blankets, we had the unique opportunity to meet Pat who had just received his last Chemo treatment as we arrived for our delivery. As he left the clinic he rang the last treatment triumph bell. Pat and his wife were kind enough to join us for the blanket delivery pictures outside. Mark Miller employees and LLS staff alike celebrated Pat’s accomplishment as he gave his wife a sweet kiss. After congratulating Pat, Bleu and the rest of our gang headed inside to delivery blankets and messages of hope to the patients in the clinic receiving treatment. Bleu was definitely the hit of the day- spreading happiness and cheer to all he came in contact with. “It’s amazing what a nice gift and a dog can do for these patients.” Michelle of Utah Cancer Specialist remarked, “When patients are made happy during treatment, blood pressure decreases and their stress levels are lowered. We love when our patients receive notes of encouragement, a warm blanket or a furry visitor; getting all three today is such a treat!” Bleu was sure to stop at each patient and all the clinic staff to give them a friendly hello. All of us at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society are so thankful for the partnership we have with Mark Miller Subaru and we want to give a special shout out to Suba Bleu, Megan, and the other Subaru employees present at this delivery for being so friendly and loving to the patients at Utah Cancer Specialist!


Getting our hands dirty to help the earth  –  Grace O

Getting our hands dirty to help the earth

Since environmental threats impact everyone, it’s vital to work in many different communities in order to learn what they prioritize and to help them make local changes. But as a small nonprofit, having the resources -- from travel capabilities to staff time -- to do this can sometimes be tight. Luckily, Mark Miller Subaru recognizes the importance of this and took action with us this Earth Day to work in a community outside of our Salt Lake City limits in a way that mattered to the local neighborhood. Ready with work gloves, sunscreen, and determination, we went down to Sandy, UT with Mark Miller Subaru to spend Earth Day cleaning up Dimple Dell Regional Park. The dealership sponsored this community event and as their Subaru Loves the Earth partner, we were able to come along, educate volunteers about our clean air and clean energy campaigns, and get our hands dirty by joining the clean-up! The park has an unfortunate history with people dumping in it, so after the morning orientation and a photo-op with a miniature horse, who was there for moral support, we went into the hills of the 646 acre park with 500 other volunteers to clean up trash that ranged from plastic water bottles to mattresses. At the end of the day, 5.36 tons of trash came out of the park and we, thanks to Mark Miller Subaru’s support, were able to be active in a community in a meaningful way.


Breathe Clean & Flow - A Practice for Clean Air  –  Hannah W

Breathe Clean & Flow - A Practice for Clean Air

Standing up for clean air. Subarus and a pup named Suba Bleu. A thoughtful yoga practice. Who knew these things could come together with such harmony! HEAL Utah is a small environmental nonprofit fortunate enough to be Mark Miller Subaru’s Subaru Loves the Earth partner for 2018. HEAL stands for Healthy Environment Alliance, and with community allies like Mark Miller Subaru, we are able to make an important difference in our state. With a staff of six, we are constantly planning and implementing a range of solutions to help clean Utah’s air, transition to renewable energy, protect our state from toxic threats such as nuclear waste, and addressing climate change. In addition to working on policy and regulatory efforts, a vital part of our success lies in educating the public and giving them the tools to make meaningful changes in their own lives and make their voices heard. Mark Miller Subaru jumped right in to help HEAL get the word out about making our state a healthier place to live, work, and play, with a specific focus on addressing our state’s air pollution problem. As HEAL and the Mark Miller Subaru team planned our Do Good Feel Good collaborations, we learned a special someone ALSO cares a lot about clean air in Utah: Suba Bleu Miller. The dealership’s furry Love Promise Ambassador loves clean air and playing outside, and he knows that all of our pets AND our humans need environments free from pollution to thrive. Bleu wanted to help us educate the public about Utah’s pollution problems, and what better way to be mindful of pollution and our health than through the practice of yoga?! So in one of their random acts of kindness Bleu and Mark Miller Subaru sponsored an evening of rooftop yoga and a happy hour with us at HEAL and our friends at SEEK Studio. Over 60 people came to enjoy this beautiful spring evening to reflect on our air, breathe deeply, connect with the community, and learn about what we can all do to stand up for clean air. SEEK owner Sarah Betts led the practice, saying “In many ways this practice of yoga is a practice of activism, of learning what it is that’s important in your life beyond job titles, incomes, and general busyness of life. You show up here on your mat to practice standing up for something you believe in, and that starts right here in your body - actively deciding to take better care of yourself. And over time, what felt like a small step - a few “down dogs” and some time in half pigeon - turns into something bigger as your practice becomes one of improving not just your body but the world it lives in day in and day out. So, as we flow out here in this incredible evening under the blue sky, breathing in the fresh air, I invite you to become your own activist, starting here in your body to improve the conditions of the vessel that carries you throughout your day, and expanding outward into your community, deciding what it is that you care to improve, for yourself and so many others that share these resources.” After yoga, HEAL shared details about Utah’s air pollution challenges, solutions we are working on, and ways that anyone can get involved to make a difference. Megan and Bleu from Mark Miller Subaru talked about their efforts to share the love and work with organizations like HEAL to spur change. Everyone learned something from Bleu that day. We all left feeling empowered to do good for ourselves, our communities, and the environment. Thank you Mark Miller Subaru for your support of a HEALthy Utah!


PRIDE in their Community  –  Kelley R

PRIDE in their Community

It is no secret that Mark Miller Subaru is a strong supporter of the LGBTQ Community but I don't think everyone knows just how far that impact reaches. Without MMS we would not be able to place the number of Service Dogs we do and one story in particular shows their impact on the LGBTQ Community. Buddy served honorably in the military, but because of his sexual orientation he suffered more personally than many Veterans. While serving his country he endured many hardships including Military Sexual Trauma. Once back home he had severe PTSD and feared to leave his home. This is how Buddy lived for years until he met us (The Malinois Foundation). We immediately knew we needed to help Buddy find his freedom again and set to work. Because of MMS and their incredible support of our organization, we were able to place Marley with Buddy as a service animal. The impact on this life was immediate. This man who risked his life for our freedoms suddenly was regaining his. Without Mark Miller Subaru we would not have been able to help this amazing Veteran as quickly as we did. It is so important to take a stand and show that ALL Veterans matter. Their support is not surface deep. Their roots are reaching the most vulnerable community members and we could not be prouder to be a part of it!


Utah Grizzlies - Military Appreciation Night  –  Kelley R

Utah Grizzlies - Military Appreciation Night

Our mission is clear: Provide as many Active Military and Veterans with life-saving Service Dogs as possible. What isn't always so easy is getting our message to the people who need to hear it most. That is where Mark Miller Subaru comes in. The meaningful, life changing connections we were able to make at the Utah Grizzlies Military Appreciation Night because of Mark Miller Subaru is astounding. There are so many lives that will forever be benefited by the knowledge of how to obtain the Service Dog they need, and we are so grateful to Mark Miller Subaru for giving us the platform to reach the people who needed us most. They gave us the space to invite out the Veterans we have already helped and share their journeys with people who might have otherwise given up hope. They gave a voice to our mission, a jump start to help Veterans in our community, and brought hope to many active Military and Veterans who could really use our help! Every Service Dog we place serves an important mission and because of Mark Miller Subaru we will be able to reach even more people and save more lives; one Service Dog at a time.


Math Adds Up Activity Center  –  Kiki M

Math Adds Up Activity Center

United Way of Salt Lake has been working closely with the City of South Salt Lake to achieve results for the region’s children and families. As part of a strategy to improve 8th Grade Math, a dinner was held at Kearns Jr. High to engage parents and their 7th grade students to explain the importance of Math proficiency and get them excited about the new efforts and energy focused on improving Math at their school. Mark Miller Subaru made many contributions to the successful execution of this event, but most importantly, they volunteered to provide childcare so the parents with younger children could attend without having to employ a babysitter. The childcare was a tremendous hit with both kids and their parents! Mark Miller Subaru staff invited two of their Love Promise Partners, Nuzzles & Co. and the Malinois Foundation to assist with their “Subaru Loves Pets” theme. Between the two partners, the children were able to free play with puppies in a snuggle lounge, and learn how Service Dogs are trained and how people should interact with them. Mark Miller Subaru even brought their own Suba Bleu Miller to perform tricks and deliver treats to the kids! In addition to all of these dog activities, the crew also provided a healthy dinner, and conducted several other activities for the kids including coloring and activity sheets. The childcare was a great service allowing the parents to focus on the presentations and conversations going on upstairs without having to worry about their younger children who were in good hands with the Mark Miller Subaru team.

12 Strays Of Christmas  –  Sean H

12 Strays Of Christmas

Mark Miller Subaru is one supporter of Nuzzles & Co. who always goes above and beyond for the cause. Most recently, they set up a series of radio appearances for our organization with a top local station. For 12 weekdays, a different adoptable cat or dog was featured each day and it was aptly named The Twelve Strays Of Christmas. The radio show gave amazing exposure for these animals through the time on the morning show, and through their online audience. So far, EIGHT of those animals have been adopted! We could not thank the Mark Miller team enough for using their reach to set this up for us, and for being there each morning on the radio to encourage listeners to adopt a pet in need of a home. One cat featured, who was an especially heartwarming case for us, was an nine year old cat named Snaggle. Snaggle is a very special boy with a rough history that left him with no teeth, but a warm personality. He had been with Nuzzles & Co. for quite a long time. Not even two weeks after being featured on the radio show and the station's website, Snaggle finally found his perfect, forever family! It was so special for all of us to see, and, of course, it was very special for little Snaggle! I believe it's this kind of happy ending where the Subaru Love Promise is truly realized. The Twelve Strays Of Christmas radio series was not only transformative for the lives of a dozen animals, but also for our organization as a whole. Since it began, we have gained hundreds of new followers on our social channels. We've seen a renewed sense of energy in our employees as people have come in and recognized their favorite animal from the radio. We have heard from new fans who are eager to become long-time supporters. In a sentence, The Twelve Strays Of Christmas campaign was the perfect way to end a good year that catapults us into an even brighter year ahead. Thank you, Mark Miller Subaru, for the tremendous good that you do for animals in need!


Mark Miller Subaru warms donors hearts  –  Sarah C

Mark Miller Subaru warms donors hearts

The culture and daily life at Mark Miller Subaru exudes the Subaru Love Promise. Their impact on the community can be counted in many different ways, within in all of the Love Promise tenets. But none deserve the attention of Subaru more then in Mark Millers commitment to CARE through their relationship with Volunteers of America and the Homeless Youth Resource Center in Salt Lake City UT. Volunteers of America, Utah is a social services non-profit that provides support services for the community’s vulnerable groups including those struggling with homelessness, mental illness and addiction. The VOA works to reach and uplift those in the greatest need, breaking down barriers and enabling our clients to transform their lives. No organization has provided more support and resources than Mark Miller Subaru. Mark Millers financial donations this year alone have exceeded $60,000, part of which goes towards providing shelter, food and most of all a safe place for despondent and at-risk youth in the community for almost 2,400 nights. Then there are the countless volunteer hours that the team at Mark Miller puts in at the youth center. 27 Mark Miller team members volunteered with the VOA’s Holiday collection and distribution effort for a total of roughly 250 hours. It included an in-store collection effort where employees collected clothes diapers, gloves, hats, wrapping paper, boxes, blankets all to be donated to the VOA. Then they volunteered at the shelter to help sort the hundreds of desperately needed collected items. The items that were collected were immediately distributed to those in critical need especially because the weather is rapidly changing in Utah. Then there are the outreach programs organized by Mark Miller. Mike Aguilar, Mark Miller Subaru marketing manager, created a program with a local LGBTQ resource center called “We See You, and We Love You”. This campaign sought to unify people and raise awareness around the suffering of LGBTQ homeless youth in our community. The goal was to distribute 25,000 rainbow wristbands to safe and affirming people who could be seen as a ‘beacon of hope’ for youth living on the streets. The initiative was so successful that 50,000 wristbands were distributed. Mark Miller also helps by collaborating with other organizations in the community to create additional donations and visibility. Unfortunately, the character limits here won’t allow me to expand further, but their impact and commitment are I’m sure a shining example of what Subaru and Mark Miller stands for.


Project Oxygen plants over 2,000 trees!  –  Amy M

Project Oxygen plants over 2,000 trees!

Project Oxygen, a tree-planting collaboration between Mark Miller Subaru and TreeUtah, was a huge success on October 21st, 2017. Over 60 community volunteers showed up on the brisk Saturday morning to plant 2,000 Cottonwood and Coyote Willow trees along the banks of the Jordan River in Taylorsville. The river in this section will benefit from the stabilizing force of the quick-growing willow roots, which will also allow time for the cottonwood trees to grow up within them to re-establish the forest canopy in the future. The water quality in the Jordan River will improve, and most importantly, our air in the Salt Lake Valley will be that much more clear, thanks to Mark Miller Subaru's Project Oxygen!

By: Cal Tatum, Herald Reporter -For the past 10 years, Subaru has partnered with Meals on Wheels, donating more than $12 million and providing funding for about 1.7 million meals. In celebration of its 50th anniversary, Subaru America is donating 50 Subaru Outbacks to a Meals on Wheels programs, and Uinta Senior Citizens Inc. of Evanston was chosen to receive one of the custom-wrapped cars.To thank Subaru America for its donation, the senior center and the Evanston Choir got together last month and filmed a video of them singing a slightly rewritten version of the theme song from the show “Golden Girls,” titled “Thank You for Being a Friend.” Mark Madia led the vocal group and videotaped the song. Subaru’s partnership with Meals on Wheels is a part of their Subaru Loves to Help program. It is an effort to make a positive impact on communities nationwide.The Uinta Senior Center transports nearly 90 meals per day in Evanston and about 50 meals in Bridger Valley. The centers also serve between 40 and 80 meals per day. Last year Subaru donated more than $23.4 million to national and local charities and throughout the life of the program the car company has donated more than $94 million.Senior center officials loaded up their vans on Monday, Nov. 20, to celebrate in Salt Lake City, where they picked up their new wheels.


Supporting local businesses in Salt Lake City  –  Amanda R

My name is Amanda Robison, and my dream of owning a small business in Salt Lake City has come true, thanks to the support of Mark Miller Subaru. My business, Green City Seam, has a mission to keep local, outdated promotional banners out of the landfill by upcycling them into dog collars, leashes, bags, lanyards, etc. This opportunity has allowed me to use my passion of sewing and creating, into becoming an entrepreneur and small business owner. Mark Miller Subaru doesn’t just say they care about our community and earth, they show it through everything they do, and their support of small businesses is outstanding. I couldn’t be more appreciative of them providing me with this opportunity, and I look forward to growing my business, and helping more organizations throughout the Wasatch Front, like Mark Miller Subaru, take further steps towards being green.


Mark Miller Subaru - Day of Service Field Trip  –  Megan R

Mark Miller Subaru - Day of Service Field Trip

The Mark Miller Subaru team is committed to doing what it takes to make the world a better place, and one of the easiest ways to achieve that is by supporting organizations who have the same goals. On Sunday October 22nd, the employees at Mark Miller Subaru took a field trip to two very inspiring organizations: Nuzzles & Co. Rescue Ranch and the Homeless Youth Resource Center. At the Nuzzles & Co. Rescue Ranch, we were greeted by a room full of cats who are nearing the end of their life, and Nuzzles & Co. is committed to providing them with somewhere to be comfortable up until the very end. After touring their facility and helping with service projects, it is very clear that Nuzzles & Co. really means what they say: EVERY animal deserves a second chance.After visiting Nuzzles & Co., we made our way to the Homeless Youth Resource Center to tour the facility and learn about the resources they provide for those in need. Learning that their permit only allows them to sleep 30 individuals each night so they must turn away any additional youth, seeing a young mom there with her two babies, and learning that most youth end up there because their parents are sex workers, addicted to drugs, or just abandoned them altogether, were just a few of the reasons that made this a heart wrenching experience. Although this is all very difficult to take in, it is reality, and it is an amazing feeling to know that the Youth Resource Center is there for those individuals in need.


A Memorable Evening For Our Homeless Youth  –  Sarah C

A Memorable Evening For Our Homeless Youth

Volunteers of America, Utah is a social services non-profit that supports and empowers our community’s vulnerable groups including those struggling with homelessness, mental illness and addiction. We work to reach and uplift those in the greatest need, breaking down barriers and enabling our clients to transform their lives. Through our partnership with Mark Miller Subaru, we were able to create a memorable and cherished memory in the lives of many of our homeless and at-risk youth. The youth at the Volunteers of America, Utah Youth Resource Center were served dinner by our volunteers alongside new Utah Jazz player, Ricky Rubio. After dinner, the youth got to play some one on one on the court against this local NBA player. "This is the best day of my life, my birthday is in two weeks - I couldn't have gotten a better birthday present!" said one of our youth clients.With everyone's support, we were able to give this special gift to to this individual and others who use our facility - and what an marvelous gift that is!


Suba Bleu Miller's Adopt-A-Versary!  –  Megan R

Suba Bleu Miller's Adopt-A-Versary!

Mark Miller Subaru not only loves pets, they love helping homeless pets find their forever homes! Using financial support generously donated by ASPCA through the Subaru Share The Love event, and by partnering with Nuzzles & Co., 19 animals found their “Furr-Ever” home during Suba Bleu’s Adopt-A-Versary. Suba Bleu himself was adopted by Mark Miller Subaru a year ago from the Humane Society of Utah. This celebration of his life was to recognize him for helping Mark Miller Subaru “Leave A Mark” on people and pets in our community. For his “Adopt-A-Versary” Bleu didn't accept gifts, he helped give the gift of life to other homeless pets. In addition to celebrating Bleu, Mark Miller Subaru excitedly launched the all-new 2018 Crosstrek (Suba Bleu’s favorite car). Taking cues from the new Subaru Crosstrek Commercial, we agree that “Love Is Out There.” We invite people to find it, with an adopted shelter pet by their side. Like Butch from the Subaru commercial, love is easy to find – even in unexpected places. Hundreds of visitors attended Bleu’s Adopt-A-Versary, with some traveling from near and far (there was even a couple from Wyoming!) to meet Suba Bleu, and to find a new addition for their family. Thank you Subaru and the ASPCA for making this special day possible.


Subaru Loves Science  –  Laura C

Subaru Loves Science

Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum has brought science into classrooms across Utah for the past 20 years. Each year, our educators travel to every corner of the state and bring chemistry to nearly 50,000 fifth-grade students and teachers in 614 schools. We are committed to sharing our love of science even if that means driving through a foot of snow or traveling several hours to a school with a single fifth-grade student. Teachers, like Mary Willis at Lake Powell School in Kane School District, appreciate that Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum makes an extra effort to reach the rural and more isolated schools “…where we are so far away from things, our students do not have opportunities to visit places for hands-on experiences.” We are so grateful to have partnered with Mark Miller Subaru to help our education team reach these schools. With a safe and reliable Subaru, educators can focus solely on instilling a love of learning about science in the students.


Veterans and the Subaru Love Paw-mise  –  Kelley R

Placing a service dog has an impact greater than most of us could fathom, but Christine put to words what that impact is for her, “to live and not merely exist.” It is hard to believe that someone’s life can be changed in a moment, but this is what happened for Christine the moment she was handed Tink. The Malinois Foundation was founded to place these life saving dogs with the brave American’s who risked everything for our freedoms. The time, commitment, and cost of doing this, however, leaves this much needed service unavailable to many our Veterans. Despite our countless volunteer hours and fundraising efforts, we could not provide the service we do without incredible community partners like Mark Miller Subaru. I struggle to finds the words to describe the impact their generosity has on our organization and our Veterans. We are not just placing a service animal with a Veteran, we are saving a life. We are giving our Veterans back the freedoms they lost while protecting ours. We are telling our local Veterans that we have not forgotten the sacrifices they have made for us. We are saying “thank you” one service dog at a time, and this would not be possible without community partners like Mark Miller Subaru.


MMS Loves [Houston's Homeless] Pets  –  Becky V

It certainly comes as no surprise to me that Mark Miller Subaru “Loves Pets.” From adopting a homeless dog – Suba Bleu – in an effort to promote “adopt don’t shop,” to saving 85+ homeless animals from Arizona’s Navajo Reservation, Mark Miller Subaru works tirelessly to give homeless animals a voice in our community. This past weekend, Mark Miller Subaru extended a loving hand to a special population of homeless animals in desperate need. While it’s impossible to prepare for catastrophic events like Hurricane Harvey and Irma, Mark Miller Subaru is committed to helping homeless pets at a moment’s notice, wherever they live. With the help of CAWS, a locally based animal shelter, Utah received roughly 140 animals who were homeless in the greater Houston area following Hurricane Harvey. To make room in Houston’s shelters for animals needing to be reunited with families, Salt Lake City flew in some of these homeless animals to help. This made certain that 1) the animals who were missing from families would benefit from the City’s limited resources; 2) that homeless animals in Houston would not be euthanized; 3) that these amazing animals would not be forgotten. Mark Miller Subaru helped cover the cost of a special clinic which provided for the neutering of these pets, all essential vaccinations, and immediate attention to life threatening illness or injury sustained by Hurricane Harvey. These pets, once homeless, scared, & alone because of Harvey, now have a second chance at life.


Making a Difference in Cambodia  –  Cortney W

This summer I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Cambodia for a Medical Outreach trip. While we were there we held six clinics in rural areas for those who are out of reach to receive medical care. We also had the opportunity to go to a Primary school for an education day. We, as a volunteer group, were in charge of preparing the lesson for the students. I talked to people who were from Cambodia and who had lived there themselves in order to plan a lesson that would positively impact the lives of the students. After discussing a few ideas with them I learned that the hygiene in Cambodia is very poor. We made a plan to teach the students about proper hygiene. Thanks to Mark Miller Subaru we were able to purchase 175 hygiene kits to hand out after the lesson to each of the teachers and students. I believe we made an impact on the lives of those who were present. We sent them off with the right tools to stay healthy by practicing good hygiene. This would not have been possible if it were not for the donation of Mark Miller Subaru. Thank you so much for your generosity! It has made a huge impact in the lives of those students and the volunteers who were involved. Thank You!


Saving Sadie: A mission for the most vulnerable  –  Beth L

This May, Nuzzles & Co. Pet Rescue and Adoption partnered with Mark Miller Subaru to make a trip to help save shelter animals at the Navajo Nation Reservation. There are scarce resources to save animals locally, but by collaborating with us, together we saved 86 animals in one day. One of the very special animals in this group was Sadie. This young, homeless mother dog had just given birth to a litter of puppies. While scavenging for food, she was caught in a wildlife trap just several yards away from her babies. Unable to get back to nurse them, she chewed her own leg off to free herself from the trap. She returned to her babies, bleeding heavily but able to finally feed them. She and her babies were on the brink of death when we found them. Mark Miller flew them back to Nuzzles’ Rescue Ranch, where they received live-saving medical attention, including a surgical amputation of the rest of Sadie’s leg. Soon, she was adopted to a loving family and knows comfort and safety for the first time in her life. We celebrated this story at Nuzzles’ annual fundraising gala this month, where Mark Miller Subaru again came through to help raise additional funds. They not only attended, but also helped Nuzzles raise $14k through a drawing for a trip for two to Paris. Every dollar will go to save more animals like Sadie—the most vulnerable who just need someone to take a chance on them. Thank you, Mark Miller Subaru, for giving, time and time again, to help us save those who need us most.


20 businesses 18 charities 1 Subaru Love Promise  –  Jenny C

 20 businesses 18 charities 1 Subaru Love Promise

Charity golf tournaments are common place. But in true Subaru fashion, Mark Miller Subaru (MMS) took the path less traveled and revolutionized a typical golf outing. This year, MMS decided to unite both their charity & business partners under the banner of the Love Promise. Non-profits are usually hyper focused on raising funds to support their missions & rarely have a chance to celebrate the work of other charities. It’s unfortunate because, at the end of the day, we’re all in this together. We all work to make our world a better place. MMS provided us with that unique opportunity! Each hole represented a charitable partner working to “#LeaveAMARK” on our home, and those who participated got to meet all of us! Also, each charity was partnered with a business partner of MMS which wasn’t just by chance; it was with intention. MMS is working to encourage their business partners to incorporate principles of the Love Promise in their own business. Because just like many non-profits exist to improve the world, MMS believes that businesses, specifically their partners, should join in this endeavor. By introducing us to their partners, MMS opened important doors for us, doors that may eventually to sustain our future. While it’s easy to keep things the same, Mark Miller Subaru knows that any opportunity to support one charity should be used to support all charities. I’m proud to say that I saw the Subaru Love Promise coming alive on this special day.


Mark Miller Subaru helps make the arts accessible!  –  Shandra B

Mark Miller Subaru helps make the arts accessible!

Art Access is an organization that works to make the arts accessible for all Utahns by providing creative opportunities for people with disabilities and other marginalized communities and through public engagement in the arts. This year was our first working with Mark Miller Subaru, and we could not be more grateful and proud to partner with Subaru's Love Promise. Not only have they made a tremendous impact on our work, but they do it with such love and support; consistently showing up all around the community with passion for the people we serve. Mark Miller Subaru sponsored our 300 Plates Exhibition and Fundraiser, which funds half of our programs. Thanks to Mark Miller Subaru we are able to run programs like our veterans art workshops, art therapy for survivors of sexual trauma, artist residencies for children with disabilities and professional development for artists with disabilities. The arts are critical for self-expression, self-esteem, community building and building compassion and understanding in our society. Having access to the arts is transformative for those we serve. One of the participants of our art therapy for survivors workshop said "This was an incredibly powerful, positive way to process what happened to me as a teenager in a safe, supportive environment.Thank you so much for providing this kind of healing opportunity". Moments like this would not be possible without the help of the Love Promise and our friends at Mark Miller Subaru, thank you!


Proud to be a part of the Love Promise  –  Monica O

Proud to be a part of the Love Promise

The Utah Pride Center has had the fortune of working with the Mark Miller Subaru team for the past few years. They have sponsored and supported many of our events, helping us to raise awareness for our organization and the unique issues within the LGBTQ community. Additionally, the support they have provided helps us fund essential, lifesaving programs offered by the Utah Pride Center. As part of their Love Promise, Mark Miller Subaru has gone above and beyond to help one of our most vulnerable populations, LGBTQ homeless youth. Developing partnerships with the Utah Pride Center and the Volunteers of America Youth Resource Center, they have provided outreach and resources to provide a strong sense of community and support for this population. Mark Miller Subaru's commitment "to be a positive force in something bigger" is making a significant impact in our LGBTQ community. Their passion for giving is making a huge difference in ALL communities.


United in Art, Celebrated through Love.  –  Mason F

As an artist and member of the Utah Arts Festival organization (UAF), I have the unique opportunity to view the world through the creative eyes of individuals on a daily basis. UAF, for example, brings people together from all walks of life in celebration of their individual world views, regardless of those views, which manifest into beautiful reality through art. UAF’s 2017 theme of “United in Art” sought to elevate our community beyond the political and social spheres towards a dimension of collaboration, celebration, and, above all else, unity. What better brand to unite others than Subaru, the 50-year-old automotive company built on one simple concept: Love. With the help of the Mark Miller Subaru, I developed a large-scale mural which embraces the beautiful Utah landscape & integrated feelings of unity and love, themes embraced by Subaru. I then welcomed members of the community to join me in bringing this artwork to life. A defining moment for me in this process was when children from the local homeless youth shelter assisted my team in creating this masterpiece. These youth have very little in this world. But for a brief moment, and through the power of art, we were able to elevate them to a different universe; a universe where it doesn’t matter who they are, what matters is that ‘they too can make this world beautiful.’ To the naked eye it may seem like a simple piece of art, but to me, Subaru &, most importantly, to the youth who participated: it a symbol of love.

We won a garden from Subaru! We have flowers for a 4'x16' garden, and today they delivered bird feeders, houses, and tools for use with the garden. We are excited to get it in!


Sharing Love Leads To Magical Smiles!  –  Stephanie S

Ronald McDonald Houses are specifically designed to support families while their children are undergoing treatment at nearby medical centers, but we know it is also important to reach out to the young patients, too, as they oftentimes face devastating challenges. For these courageous children, we also want to offer special joyous moments and little pick-me-ups that acknowledge successes and triumphs as well sparking hope during setbacks. And, well, sometimes that takes a little magic. And that magic sparked inside of our ‘House that Love Built’ thanks to Mark Miller Subaru and Subaru of America’s “Share The Love” program! When our local Ronald McDonald House expanded several years ago, we included a special, magical space designed for children: The Magic Room. This special room has become a place where children can go on days of triumph & days of difficulty. In a beautifully decorated atmosphere of fantasy & mystery they choose a special toy to keep for celebration or for comfort, allowing them to simply be children and to spark the glow of wonder that best defines childhood. Stocked with toys to suit every age, the Magic Room is a portal to the imaginary worlds that sustain the young in challenging times. We are deeply grateful to Subaru of America’s Share The Love campaign and to Mark Miller Subaru for their steadfast support of this special Magic Room. When it comes to magic, Subaru makes for wonderfully enthusiastic wizards! So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you!


70 Dogs and Cats, Homeless and Hungry No More.  –  Beth L

70 Dogs and Cats, Homeless and Hungry No More.

Nuzzles & Co. is a Utah animal rescue that focuses on saving the most vulnerable pets in our region’s shelters. The ones in most danger of dying—the injured, the delicate babies, the aging, the disabled, animals with medical needs, and even pregnant mothers. We take a chance on these dogs and cats. They have a lot of love to give, and with a little TLC and medical care, we can get them on their feet and adopted into loving homes. Giving these animals their desperately needed medical care is expensive, but we never met a life that wasn’t worth saving. That’s why we’re dizzyingly grateful for Mark Miller Subaru’s help in raising nearly $11,000 this spring to cover the medical expenses of dozens of cats and dogs we’ve rescued from some of our lowest-funded shelters in the state, on the Navajo Reservation. These dogs and cats have lived their lives on the streets, in snowbanks, behind dumpsters. With minimal scraps for food and hardly any water, they’ve struggled day-to-day, with most dying from injuries, malnourishment, or dehydration. But with the Navajo Nation’s support and incredible help from Mark Miller Subaru, we’ve not only gathered dozens of homeless dogs and cats and brought them back, but now we can truly give them the medical care and treatment they need: broken legs will be fixed. Fleas and ticks removed. Life-saving surgeries performed. Tummies filled. Babies saved. Thanks to Mark Miller, these animals know they’re loved. And that they'll never suffer again.


Conservationists and biologists of tomorrow  –  Joseph D

Conservationists and biologists of tomorrow

In partnership with Mark Miller Subaru, HawkWatch International is creating new generations of conservationists and biologists. Sophie Gauthier just graduated from Waterford School as a Cum Laude inductee, National Merit Scholar, and Scholastic Gold Key Award winner in creative writing. She will be attending Lewis and Clark University next fall to obtain a degree in wildlife biology. Sophie is a Bird Docent volunteer for HawkWatch International (HWI), which means she handles our “raptor ambassadors” and takes them out into the community to provide raptor education programs. She became interested in raptors during her freshman year when HWI staff brought a live hawk into her biology class. HWI’s “Raptor Biology Through the Seasons” is an informal science and math education program that teaches biology students across the state of Utah topics on raptor biology and ecology, research and data collection, environmental issues and conservation, and discusses career opportunities in science and biology. Pictured here is Sophie handling HWI’s Swainson’s Hawk, Aymara, while speaking to freshman biology students about her volunteer work. We are so proud of Sophie and wish her the best of luck in college, and know we will be seeing her again soon.


105 Days of Love  –  Jon W

105 Days of Love

When we came up with the idea of challenging our listeners to do a random act of kindness every day for 105 days, Mark Miller Subaru stepped up in a bif way! They donated hygene kits to a listener who was travelling to Honduras, they helped a Mom who just had heart surgery get her house cleaned and they flew to Southern Utah to help rescue homeless pets. What an incredible team who stepped up the momment we asked for help!


Love UT Give UT's Love Subaru  –  Alex E

Mark Miller Subaru brought Subaru’s Love Promise to life in their local community through a partnership with Love UT Give UT, a 24 hour fundraising event hosted by the Community Foundation of Utah and presented by Mark Miller Subaru. Love UT Give UT’s vision is a day for Utahns of all backgrounds and beliefs to come together to raise funds for the amazing nonprofit organizations and schools who support this great state. Mark Miller Subaru helped create an experience which brought more than 12,000 people across Utah together, raising $1.085 million and bolstering fundraising for Utah nonprofits. Charitable giving is such a major part of the work they do and is valued greatly by their employees; in fact, since 2010, Mark Miller Subaru has given $1,174,846.99 to local charitable organizations. ALL people who donated had a chance to win a brand new Subaru Impreza from Mark Miller Subaru (the "Love Subaru"). Thank you to everyone for spreading the love, and 'Love is what makes a Subaru, a Subaru.' View our video here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/lwd9snmwv8o4jx0/AAD-yQunWcc5KO3L04wr_j6Ia?dl=0)


A dog to save my life.  –  Kelley R

A dog to save my life.

At the Malinois Foundation we are so blessed to be able to provide service animals to our Veterans in need. This is the story of one such Veteran we are currently trying to help. "I deployed to Iraq in 2007 & worked in a field hospital. Seeing the things we did in the hospital were ugly in more ways than can be explained. As I returned, it was a battle to return to civilian life. Bouncing from job to job, town to town, I never had a purpose or a plan. At 35 years old, I finally decided to go to school. I am half way through my associates degree. Even in a class room full of students, I still feel alone, depressed & secluded. I try to stay at the school late into the evening.I hate the loneliness I feel. Loneliness seems to be my only companion. I hate being alone. One of the other students has a service dog to aid him. He explained to me the comfort the dog brings him & how it helps keep him calm. The dog keeps him centered. It occurred to me that’s what I need in my life. A service dog to keep me calm, centered, & most of all, away from the suicidal thoughts that join me late at night. I want to be happy; I want to have the same companionship that was in the Army; I want peace. I struggle with school, but the only thing that keeps me going is the bigger long term picture. For me, that is not graduating, but staying alive and not succumbing to the demons that plague me. I want the love of a companion. The everlasting love that can come from a dog. And also a best friend."


From Homeless to Housing in need of basic needs  –  Britnee D

From Homeless to Housing in need of basic needs

Thanks to Mark Miller Subaru, the Housing Authority of Salt Lake City was able to raise over $12,000 for formerly homeless veterans and individuals that are again facing homelessness because of the inability to pay rent or buy essential items like transit passes, blankets and cleaning supplies. Funding for such expenses have been incredibly difficult to come by, but Mark Miller Subaru was able to provide these to our residents. On top of the money donated, they also provided basic needs such as: coats, clothing, hygiene items, and organized a luncheon to thank our homeless programs that served their country. It was incredible to see each resident talk personally with the representatives from Mark Miller Subaru and feel the love that the program was inspired by. The collection of critical resources for Veteran’s initiative will not be soon forgotten and each of our residents has voiced their gratefulness for all the support provided. One resident was particularly touched by the donations. This individual had served his country in the Air Force and remarked that after coming home from Vietnam, he didn’t feel appreciate for his service. Experiencing homelessness and living on the streets was worse than any wartime he had seen, but he is trying to get things back together at our complex. Seeing the kindness and the donations made him realize how attitudes had changed since he had served. He feels proud again to be a combat Veteran. Thank you Mark Miller Subaru staff!


Mark Miller Subaru takes PRIDE in their giving  –  Monica O

Mark Miller Subaru takes PRIDE in their giving

The Utah Pride Center exists to unite, empower and celebrate our LGBTQ community by providing a welcoming and safe place for education, partnerships, services and events which advance our collective health, wellness and success. Mark Miller Subaru has helped us achieve this mission time after time during 2016. Through their sponsorship of the Utah Pride Festival and our Golf and Halloween event, they helped provide celebration and empowerment to over 135,000 participants in the greater Salt Lake Area. Additionally, they were part of the very powerful “We See You, We Love You” campaign which sent out a loving message to homeless youth and others that were struggling during this Holiday Season. Mark Miller Subaru goes above and beyond in ALL communities and believes we are all unique, worthwhile and loved. We enjoy the partnership with Mark Miller Subaru not only because of the financial help they provide, but because we feel that they genuinely care about the issues, the organizations they support, and more importantly the people we each serve. Mark Miller Subaru is truly dedicated to improving the world and the lives of its people. THANK YOU Mark Miller Subaru from the Utah Pride Center!


Mark Miller Subaru Barks the Bark with HSU  –  Jenny C

We save many animals at the Humane Society of Utah. Of the 11,000 lives we are saving this year, Suba Bleu Miller (Bleu for short) is my favorite story! Bleu was found as a stray by a county shelter, adopted, and eventually surrendered by his new owner to us. His history is a bit of a mystery, but I knew he had plenty of love to share. I also knew Mark Miller Subaru needed a “Love Promise Ambassador” to do just that. Bleu would be the perfect fit as a new employee of Mark Miller Subaru, and it was truly love at first sight. Mark Miller Subaru transformed this dog. Once a deserted, skinny, unkempt shelter puppy, now a happy, healthy, and loved part of the Mark Miller Subaru family. And Bleu loves his new job! He travels to various charities bringing joy to those in need. We love our Corporate Partners who help us share the message of adoption, this helps save the lives of countless shelter pets. Mark Miller Subaru does that, and more! They don't just talk the talk, they bark the bark. I speak for the entire Humane Society of Utah when I say, we could not be happier for Bleu and Mark Miller Subaru. And we know that Suba Bleu will be an incredible ambassador of the Subaru Love Promise for many years to come. View story here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W83Yr7GcXdE&feature=youtu.be

We are off next month to the DockDogs World Championship. This will be the 2nd year we have traveled in our Outback. We love that the car gets great gas mileage, does well in the bad weather since we travel from Utah to Iowa and it fits everything we need. We are excited to compete for the the 5th year in a row and hope to bring home another World Champion. Kona was the 2013 Iron Dog Warrior Champion and we have lots of 2nd and 3rd place finishes and have made finals every year. Thank you Subaru for providing a car that gets us around safely to all these events.


It takes a community to save a raptor  –  Joseph D

It takes a community to save a raptor

HawkWatch International works to protect hawks, eagles, owls, and other birds of prey through research and public education. As part of our American Kestrel Study, we partnered with Mark Miller Subaru in Salt Lake City, UT to host a community event to support this project. More than 100 individuals came to the dealership to help us build 75 nest boxes that will be used in our research study. Individuals and family groups received an "assembly kit", built their nest box, and got to sign the back. The boxes were kept by HawkWatch International to be used in their spring 2017 study season. American Kestrels have been in decline for many years, but we do not know why. These nest boxes are installed throughout Utah and monitored by volunteers to collect important information that may help solve this mystery and protect North America's smallest, most colorful falcon. This was a fantastic event full of family fun, live raptors, lessons on conservation, and, most importantly, a message on living a Subaru "Eco-friendly" life! Thanks for your partnership, Mark Miller Subaru!!


Mark Miller Subaru Embodies the Love Promise  –  Aimee D

Mark Miller Subaru Embodies the Love Promise

The goal of the Utah Arts Festival is to introduce people to a breadth of creative works in an effort to expand their view of art and to illustrate the accessibility and relevance of art as individuals and as a community. To achieve this means creating both artistic and human connections with our audience by offering a space for audiences of all tastes, interests, cultural backgrounds and economic standing to come together. We couldn’t do that without the support of local companies like Mark Miller Subaru who share a similar philosophy and goals. Mark Miller Subaru has a strong history of community involvement and is committed to creating connections that go beyond simply selling cars. Their investment in the 2016 Utah Arts Festival helped make it possible for us to offer free admission to all members of the public on Thursday, June 23, allowing more than 18,000 people to attend for free. Their involvement holds a “stamp of approval” in our community that I believe helps the organizations they support beyond their financial contributions. They see the vision of our nonprofit organization and understand our capacity to impact community when we work together. With their support we did great things this year, and we know that will continue to build on that in the years to come. Mark Miller Subaru embodies the Subaru Love Promise. They have proven that they are genuinely driven by service, not just within the confines of their dealership, but within the community at large.


Building a community through art!  –  Michael A

Building a community through art!

For the first time in the 40-year history of the Utah Arts Festival (UAF), the doors of the Festival were open to all people – free of charge – on the first night of the event! This was only possible because Mark Miller Subaru (MMS) joined a handful of other institutions (including the State of Utah) in underwriting costs associated with Festival admission. While this may seem like a relatively small act of kindness, this was one of the most important element’s of this year’s event. Utah is home to a large minority population (including larger than normal Hispanic and refugee communities) who traditionally cannot afford events like the Arts Festival. MMS decided to support the Festival in making it accessible to all people regardless of their ability to pay. In addition to underwriting admission, MMS hosted a unique “Community Art Project” during the Festival which more than 25,000 people participated in! As the exclusive automotive partner of the Festival, the Outback was named the “Official Vehicle” of the Festival and was wrapped as a giant “Coloring Book” to engage the entire community. This Outback became the most popular, community centered activity of the Festival! It was so popular that members of the MMS team had to continually clean portions of the car to allow for more individuals to participate! The most rewarding part of this community art project, however, was the wide-range of individuals who participated in creating this visually stunning master-piece!

For the last two years, Mark Miller Subaru of Salt Lake City, Utah has been a proud partner of Project Oxygen. This partnership, which also includes Salt Lake County Million Trees and local non-profit TreeUtah, is commitment by the dealership to make a positive impact on the environment by planting a tree for every car they sell. This endeavor is part of the dealership’s Driving Green program where they participate in numerous sustainable efforts to help improve Utah’s poor air quality and give back to the local community. This spring’s tree planting event took place on Salt Lake’s West side near the Jordan River at a new location along the Jordan River, by the Salt Lake Regional Athletic Complex. Along with Tree Utah and numerous volunteers, we were able to plant 2,000 trees and bring the total up to 10,000 trees planted since the partnership began in 2014. Project Oxygen will hold another tree planting event in the fall to continue efforts in making a lasting impact on our environment.

Subaru Loves Pets Partnership  –  Cody B

Subaru Loves Pets Partnership

The Wasatch Front Subaru Retailers and Mark Miller Midtown never want us to lose our pets! On Feb. 14, 2015, the Humane Society of Utah and Mark Miller Midtown hosted the first quarterly Subaru Loves Pets Event for the year. Free Avid microchips were offered to the public as a community service to increase the likelihood of owners finding their lost furry loved ones. Bringing awareness to the plight of homeless animals in Utah and encouraging the public to microchip their pet as a safe, permanent form of identification, the first Subaru Loves Pets Event was a great success. Over 700 Utah pets now have the means to find their way home in the unfortunate event the pet goes missing. The Humane Society of Utah is grateful for the sponsorship and support from Subaru and looks forward to future collaborative events to service our community and our beloved pets.

Your support will help nurture parents and caregivers who, exhausted at the end of their long days, will find not only a warm bed, but nourishing food, restorative activities and above all else, comfort and kindness. Your support will allow families to focus on what is most important their children. On behalf of all who will be benefited by your kindness, thank you!

Mark Miller Subaru's Unique Interest in the Community  –  Summer S

Mark Miller Subaru's  Unique Interest in the Community

My first car was a Subaru. I bought it used and abused and it still ran like a champ. I was in love. Eventually, I had to part ways with my beloved GL but I always knew I wanted another Subaru. Years later as a business owner I was approached about partnering on events with Mark Miller Subaru. I, of course, did not hesitate because although I no longer owned a Subaru, I was still a fan. Time went on and several events later I began to realize several things. Subaru itself was amazing. It really had a unique interest in the community and Mark Miller Subaru not only supported events at my store they also graciously contributed to events for the Sugar House community. Pretty soon I had a Subaru again and more and more of my customers followed suit. Do you blame them? Those who drove Subarus were like some crazy family and it was good to be part of the family again. Before I bought my second Subaru I had been hesitant about buying a new car. Okay maybe hesitant is an understatement-I was actually petrified. At this point, I had never had a car payment in my life and was very hesitant to even consider buying a new car. I began to talk to the Event Coordinator, Chris Woolston about my trepidation. He assured me that buying a car from Subaru would not be the experience I was so frightened of. I finally braved visiting the Mark Miller dealership at Southtowne and quickly found out he was right. I ended up getting exactly what I wanted without feeling like I was


Caring goes a long way  –  Lundy W

Caring goes a long way

To the manager, My name is Lundy Wren. I and my granddaughter Kathryn McKeever came to your dealership on June 10, to look for a car. She lives in Cedar City, Utah and had driven up late the night before. We only had one day to get a deal done because she had to be back for work on Wednesday and by the time we reached your store it was late in the afternoon. Manny came out to greet us and right away I felt at ease with his easy demeanor. I could tell right off there would be none of the high pressure sales tactics we had encounter in most every other dealership we had been to throughout the day. He patiently showed her car after car until she found one she loved and let her drive it. It was a White 2013 Subaru Legacy. He took us into your waiting area and offered us refreshments while we got the process started. Both men were extremely knowledgeable of the products and their jobs and took excellent care of us through the entire process. They really seemed to care about us. If they were just acting then they are extremely good actors. I don't think it was an act, I think they really are good at their jobs and really do care about the people they come in contact with. If these two fine gentlemen are any indication of the caliber of people you have working there then it's understandable why you've been in business so long. Please pass my thanks and kudos on to both of them and thank you so much for having them there to help us. Sincerely, Lundy M. Wren


Huge Success for Mark Miller and TreeUtah  –  Amy C

Huge Success for Mark Miller and TreeUtah

April 21st, 2014 was a huge success for Mark Miller Subaru and TreeUtah. The planting started with Salt Lake County's Mayor, Ben McAdams giving a dedicated kick off speech along with Jeff Miller, General Manager of Mark Miller Subaru. Encouraging words followed by President of TreeUtah, Amy Collins, on how these events truly impact Utah. Together, with all of our volunteers and co-workers we were able to plant 2,000 Trees. A number that marks the half way point to our combined goal of 4,000 trees in Salt Lake County. After all the hard work everyone enjoyed a delicious meal prepared by our cook Jason Greer. The remaining 2,000 trees will be planted this fall, stay tuned and up to date with us as we continue to better our part with emissions and recycling in our day to day business operations and community. We believe in truly making Utah a greener place to live and helping preserve the environment we love so much. Huge thank you to all the volunteers,TreeUtah and other community members. Sincerely, Mark Miller Subaru
