Subaru is dedicated to supporting those who need it the most in our communities. From donating food to Feeding America, providing essential items to homeless shelters, helping Meals on Wheels deliver meals to seniors, or supporting the American Red Cross in disaster response, we believe our communities get stronger when everyone is cared for.
Imagine having to go without something as simple as a pair of socks. It’s something many of us have never had to consider, but for millions of people experiencing homelessness each year, many of whom are children, this is often a reality they face.
This February, Subaru and our retailers helped to support those in need by providing one of the most requested items by shelters, socks. This small item that most of us take for granted, can truly have an enormous impact by providing comfort and maintaining the health of those who are experiencing homelessness.
Through the Subaru Loves to Help® initiative, Subaru and our retailers have donated over 500,000 pairs of new socks, 50,000 of which are youth socks, along with 100,000 warm blankets for adults and children experiencing homelessness.

Right now, millions of Americans struggle to access food for themselves or their families, and one in four children in the U.S. may face hunger. Since 2020, Subaru and our retailers have donated a total of 150 million meals‡ to Feeding America®, one of the largest hunger-relief organizations in the country. These meals were distributed across 199 local food banks to assist families and individuals in need, particularly due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has caused a sharp increase in food insecurity.
We invite you to join us in this effort by making your own donation to Feeding America®. Contributions will be directed to the food bank that serves your ZIP code, giving everyone the opportunity to help their communities.
