Subaru Pacific Enjoys Sharing The Love

Grades of Green Impact-A-Thon

In June of 2019, Subaru Pacific was pleased to host the Impact-a-Thon, sponsored by Grades of Green. On June 2, local elementary school students came to our Subaru dealership in Hawthorne, CA, to present their environmentally friendly science fair projects. These projects were designed to be applied within their own elementary schools, in the local community and even on a global level! Grades of Green works with children around the globe to help them take action to help protect the environment. Their efforts are intended to get students excited and passionate about civic engagement. When the elementary school children were at our Subaru dealership, we saw a range of impactful projects, including one called Ban the Bottle. This project, in particular, highlights the impact of single-use plastic water bottles on the environment and asks people to take a pledge to stop using them. That's just one of the incredible projects we saw, but if you want to see more take a look at our video from the Impact-a-Thon!

Share the Love Celebration 2019

Every month we hold a "Third Thursday" event at Subaru Pacific, and June's Third Thursday was a celebration of some of our favorite partnerships through Share the Love! This month, we were pleased to present checks to some local charities that are making a huge impact on the South Bay community. First up was Grades of Green, a local environmental non-profit that's been a partner of Subaru Pacific for more than six years. Grades of Green works with local students to help them implement environmental projects within their schools and communities that they're passionate about. Additionally, we presented a check to, a foster-based rescue right here in South Bay. The rescue doesn't have a kennel or facility, just homes where they keep dogs to get them ready for adoption. So far, they've rescued more than 1,500 dogs, and we're proud to support them in any way we can! That's not all, though. At this month's event, we also collected school supplies for local classrooms through Subaru Loves Learning. Take a look at the video from June's Third Thursday to see what else happened during the event!

Share the Love Celebration 2019

Since 2012, Subaru Pacific has supported K-12 students who are taking action to protect our planet with Grades of Green. Subaru Pacific has raised over $100,000 through the Share the Love Campaign, which supports Grades of Green as we provide personalized coaching and resources to children who are dedicated to protecting the environment. In the South Bay alone, students have championed banning single-use plastic, educated thousands of their peers about water conservation, and even advocated for a state-wide resolution to stop cars from idling outside of schools in California! Thanks to Subaru Pacific's generous support, our programs can remain free for any student or school who wants to participate by using the resources on our website, joining our Eco-Campaigns and more. Over 50% of the schools we support are from Title 1 communities. Subaru Pacific will also be hosting the second annual Grades of Green Youth Summit on Sunday, June 2, 2019, from 11-2 pm at their awesome dealership - our students love that it is LEED certified! We hope community members will join us at the Youth Summit to see Grades of Green's students showcase their environmental projects, and to learn more about Subaru Pacific's commitment to the environment. Thank you to Subaru Pacific for your ongoing support, and for showing our students what it means to be an environmental leader. We are so grateful to partner with you!
