Each year Subaru participates in the Share The Love Promise, a program where each new car sold during the holidays automatically creates a donation of $250 to a charity of the purchaser’s choice. Subaru is committed to helping communities become stronger by sharing the love they receive with local and national nonprofit organizations, such as the SPCA of Northern Nevada! The event runs now through January 3, 2023.
