The 2019 Subaru Love Promise Customer 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.

Brave Heroes Fighting Cancer One Day at a Time  –  Jacqueline R

It was a warm summer day with the sun shining bright as the Gillman Subaru crew set forth on a day that would change their lives forever. Jason Chapa led the crew on a selfless gesture in hopes to help brighten the day of children fighting the worst battle imaginable, cancer. Children’s Hospital of San Antonio Pediatric Oncology unit was filled with children and their family along with the hospital staff who greeted Jason and his crew upon their arrival. Buster the Blood Drop, the San Antonio chapters’ mascot, accompanied Gillman’s crew who had blankets, messages of hope cards and craft kits in hand to gift these beautiful souls with small tokens filled with love and encouragement to help them on their journey to healing. Jason and his crew were humbled to “be in the presence of true heroes.” These patients are brave forces of light that bring inspiration to all as they fight for their lives. The Gillman crew ensured these children that they are rallying behind them to conquer this battle. To show their commitment to helping save lives and these children, Gillman Auto Group sponsored $7,500 to San Antonio Light The Night. Their generosity didn’t end there. Gillman Subaru will be the Mission Chariot Sponsor and honor a patient/survivor by chauffeuring them as they lead San Antonio Light The Night on October 13, 2018. Gillman Auto Group loves to be involved in the community. “We show our community that we do things for a purpose.” What greater purpose than supporting Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to help find a cure and eliminate this horrible battle. “These kids are going through their toughest battle they will every fight. The least we can do is offer support, encouragement, and hope. Our hope is to make sure they know we think of them daily.” Jason expressed with genuine adoration for all the lives touched on this special visit. Each child was in awe and excited to receive their craft kits, blankets, and the opportunity to be photographed with Buster. June 28th, 2018 is a day the Gillman Subaru crew will keep in their hearts forever as they continue to support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s mission with their Subaru Loves to Care initiative. Through this partnership there have been over 105,000 blankets and 12,465 craft kits gifted to those fighting cancer at hospitals and cancer treatment centers across the country.

Children's Hospital of San Antonio Visit  –  Jessye P

On July 18th, Jason Chapa, the general sales manager of Gillman Autogroup, delivered blankets, messages of hope, and arts and crafts to Children’s Hospital of San Antonio Oncology Unit. This is the second delivery Jason Chapa has done, but the first time to meet and personally deliver blankets to patients. Two patients in particular, gave us a brief background of themselves. One patient who is eight years old, told us how much he loved his Hot Wheels. He even showed us his collection of Subaru cars he enjoyed playing with. When it was time to go, he gave Jason a huge hug and thanked him for the blanket and even joked about getting a Subaru car donated for next year’s delivery. The next patient was a fourteen year old who enjoyed reading Harry Potter books and has read all of them more than six times while in treatment. He also told us that he still had last year’s blanket to keep him warm during chemotherapy. After all the deliveries, Jason was touched and overwhelmed in meeting patients and their families. “Seeing their smiles truly warmed my heart,” says Jason. “We aren’t looking for our name to be on our blankets. In fact, we want to help out the community more. It is our mission to continue to assist our community, one way or another. This was an experience I will never forget as a Sales Manager here at Gillman Autogroup. We are excited what we can help with next year with LLS.”

US Army Specialist Abdullah Savage  –  John H

Retired Specialist Abdullah Savage served his country faithfully in the United States Army's 10th Mountain Division. Later in his deployment, his unit was hit by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) killing other Soldiers in his unit. SPC Savage was injured but he survived with a severe Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). He was awarded the Purple Heart for injuries he sustained while performing combat operations. He was brought to Brooke Army Medical Center (Today known as, San Antonio Medical Center) located in San Antonio, Texas where he spent 3 weeks in a coma and an additional 9 months there before being released. In 2012, the Audie Murphy VA Hospital called us, Military Warriors Support Foundation, asking if we could provide transportation for a veteran named, Abdullah Savage. The VA Hospital needed us so he could stay on track with his treatments as they were critical to his recovery. We are now in the year 2016 and we are proud to say that Specialist Abdullah Savage was released from his treatments. Mr. Savage, with heartfelt expression, says THANK YOU to us and Subaru; a partnership that has provided him with 3 years of faithful transportation to and from his VA appointments. He has made such tremendous strides and improvements in his health, that his neurologist and case manager have cleared the way for him to resume driving. The very next day we took Mr. Savage to the Texas Department of Public Safety, where he received his driver's license.
