What is the Subaru Love Promise?

The Subaru Love Promise is just that. A promise. It is a promise to do right by our community by partnering with nonprofit education, health, community, environment, and animal organizations - to set Subaru apart through our deeds and the deeds of our partners. To be unlike any other car company by doing what is right and good, just for the sake of doing it.

Learn more about the Subaru love promise by reading below or visiting our NJ dealership. Burke Subaru is more than just providing better care, better service, and better pricing; it's about making a difference in others' lives for the better.

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.

We believe in making the world a better place. That's why we build fuel-efficient vehicles in eco-friendly plants.

Love Promise Stories from Burke Subaru

Trout Stocking in Central PA!  –  Francey B

Trout Stocking in Central PA!

We were on a camping trip and had the opportunity to assist a local Ranger and a group of concerned citizens and fishing enthusiasts by helping stock trout in local rivers and streams in Central PA. It was a great experience, and a unique Share the Love story! Fish stockers are Dave Burke, Dealer Operator at Burke Subaru, and Francey Burke, Director of Community Relations.


Burke Motor Group Car, Truck & Cycle Show  –  Francey B

Burke Motor Group Car, Truck & Cycle Show

Burke Motor Group recently held a Car Show which was a benefit event for our local Police Department. We had 192 Cars, Trucks and Motorcycles registered for this event. The event is now in its third year and has become the talk of the Car Show circuit. Each year, we select a local organization to benefit. This year was Middle Township Police Department. We funded a special summer camp they were setting up for the benefit of our area youth. They were so pleased that we were able to raise enough funds for them to hold this program. The day of the show, we had Police Sergeants, the Police Captain, and other officers on hand to help us register the car owners, help direct traffic, serve the BBQ, and even scoop water ice to the 1200 people in attendance. We surpassed our goal of $5000, and were able to raise $6411 that day. We even had our own giant billboards created to publicize this special event.


Women's Only Network at Burke Subaru!  –  Francey B

Burke Subaru hosted the Women's Only Network for an informative seminar that featured a demo of EyeSight, as well as an appearance by a local meteorologist who broadcast live from the dealership showroom.

Burke Subaru hosts South Jersey Girl Scouts  –  Francey B

Burke Subaru was very pleased to host a comprehensive seminar for our local Girl Scout Troops from Southern New Jersey. The seminar included an excellent presentation from a female Middle Township, NJ Police Sergeant, who also represented an outstanding role model for the young girls. The Sgt. spoke to the girls at length about the responsibilities of driving and also presented an interactive demo using "drunk goggles" to focus their attention on the dangers of impaired driving. The message came across! After the demo, the girls toured the service department of Burke Subaru and were instructed about car service and safety during an in-depth session which included being under the hood and also under the car on a lift. Finally, the troop received a quiz to see what they learned about safe driving, automotive care and the history of the Girl Scouts. Here is a sample of what they were quizzed on: -What year were the Girls Scouts founded? ( 1865 * 1939 * 1912 ) -Teens between the ages of 16-19 surveyed, what is the % that talk on cell while driving ( 25% * 55% * 60% ) After the demos, they had a dinner buffet and were presented with special gifts.Parents and Troop Leaders were invited to attend along with the girls. A unique feature of this seminar is that the girls earned an official Girl Scout Badge in Automotive! We were very pleased to bring all the girls and their parents together at Burke Subaru, along with the support of our local police department.

Third Grader Dictionary Day!  –  Francey B

Third Grader Dictionary Day!

As Director of Community Relations, my job at Burke Subaru takes me to a lot of different places and roles in our surrounding neighborhoods. I have been a long-time Rotarian and spearhead a literacy project that puts a brand new dictionary in the hands of every area third grader each year. I deliver hundreds of them personally each year, and always look forward to it. This year was extra special: A few days ago, I was out on deliveries to area schools. One little boy ran up to me upon receiving his book and exclaimed "I've always dreamed of owning my own dictionary and thank you so much for bringing it to me!" He reached in his pocket and gave me a plastic diamond that had been on his desk and was obviously a treasure to him. That diamond now has a place of honor and was one of life's great moments for me. I wanted to share this story with Subaru and reflect on how such simple gestures can mean so much.

Burke Subaru was pleased to host the Women's Only Network to an informative seminar. WON is a group of ladies from all walks of life: business owners, retirees, young mothers, executives. We took the ladies on a guided tour of our service department and discussed car safety and maintenance. We brought in local meteorologist Dan Skeldon who led a spirited conversation about "everything weather" and how it relates to driving in different conditions.

Burke Subaru Welcomes Middle School girls!

We recently hosted the Middle Township Middle School young ladies and their parents at an informative seminar that featured an "under the vehicle" tour of our service department. We were contacted by the faculty adviser of the Pink Panthers, asking if we could provide the young girls a session at the dealership where they could learn about car safety and technology. The session included how to change a tire, tire balance, and basic service and maintenance. The Pink Panthers are a group that encourages and fosters empowerment for the young ladies. They were very excited to take part, along with their parents, and school administration in this seminar. We provided gifts for the girls, and a buffet dinner for everyone. Burke Subaru was proud to be a sponsor of the Pink Panthers!


Burke Motor Group is Driven To Action!  –  Francey B

Burke Motor Group is Driven To Action!

Burke Motor Group is the Proud Founder of Driven To Action (#DTA), a comprehensive program designed at keeping our teen drivers safe on the road. We have a presentation we have taken to area high schools, complete with videos, that engage students in the dangers of distracted driving, texting being the number one concern. We have successfully encouraged over 900 area students to take the Burke Motor Group Student Safe Driver Pledge. In doing so, students are presented with a Rewards ID Card that enables them to receive discounts from area businesses all over town that have generously partnered with us to provide this unique program. We also engage the students who have registered with safe driver tips and video clips, and any time we add a new merchant partner to the over two dozen we currently have. Another important component of this program is the support we have from local Police Departments. They have endorsed our efforts. We presented the program again today, Oct 4, 2016. One student writes about the presentation: "I really respect what you guys are doing here. We need more safe drivers on the road so we can guarantee the safety of our family and friends behind the wheel." We are proud of this program and will continue to promote it to local schools. The #DTA Student Safe Driver Pledge and complete program are also available online for those students who wish to share with others.


Burke Motor Group Helped Protect the Terrapins!  –  Francey B

Burke Motor Group Helped Protect the Terrapins!

The employees of Burke Subaru and their families were up early with their gloves on and sleeves rolled up to help protect the beloved Terrapin turtles at their Subaru Share the Love event on Sunday, May 3rd. Ray Burke, President of Burke Motor Group and Chairman of the Board of The Wetlands Institute said, "We wanted to give back to this community we love so we enlisted the help of The Wetlands Institute knowing that they could lead a volunteer project that would have real impact." The Wetlands Institute has been working to protect and conserve diamondback terrapins for more than 20 years. A key component is the installation and maintenance of barrier fencing throughout local salt marsh roads. From mid-May through July, female terrapins leave the marsh in search of higher ground to nest and lay eggs. This puts them in harm's way as they cross roadways. Burke Subaru and Subaru America donated more than $4,000 to The Wetlands Institute as part of the Subaru Share the Love program. The program also included a volunteer event to help The Wetlands Institute repair barrier fencing to prepare for the upcoming nesting season. For several hours, volunteers worked hard repairing the barrier fencing along Stone Harbor Boulevard. Volunteers from both Burke Motor Group and the Rotary Club of Mid Jersey Cape repaired fencing and did a trash cleanup. Bike Patrol and Event coordination was provided by Francey Burke, Director of Community Relations for Burke Subaru.

Burke Motor Group supports our Veterans!

Burke Motor Group is a proud supporter of our local Veterans! Two years ago, we were able to raise enough funds through various benefit events to purchase them a fully equipped van to be used for medical transportation. Countless Veterans have used this transportation service since the van was donated. Since then, we have held annual Car, Truck & Motorcycle Shows at the dealership to further support them. We also provide special ongoing discounts to all Active and Retired Military in our service department. We are honored and privileged to be able to be of service to those who serve our country. We were recently recognized by the New Jersey State Senate for our dedication to local Veterans.

The tournament provided VIM with its first computers, much-needed medical equipment, prescription medicine coverage and more.
