Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy.
Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.
It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.
In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.
We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.
At North Coast Subaru our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits organizations. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve it as well. With over 35 years of dedication to our community we truly understand what Love is.
North Coast Subaru partnered with the local community to help raise support for the new dog park located at Dennis Brian Murray Park. This is the first official dog park opened by the City of Glen Cove. Two dog runs were setup, for large and small dogs, and a new water fountain will be installed in the spring. Local residents are fundraising to add new features and amenities to the dog park. The Glen Cove Dog Park is a great way for neighbors and pets to safely exercise, play, and keep in touch.
After having a wonderful life, I had gone through some very hard times in the last few years. I guess everything evens out in life. But I’m still here and looking forward to yet another chapter in my life. Subaru has helped me in so many ways toward that goal. After a horrific car accident and a totaled car, I came to them with my story and research in hand about the Subaru’s. North Coast Subaru went above and beyond for me to acquire the car that I wanted. They gave me everything that made me feel safe and monetarily helped with the price and even the financing. Literally guiding me through every step of the way, no kidding! If you didn’t know it, you would not believe you were in a car dealership, but a close relatives place, helping. I am a retired Special Education Art Teacher and a graphic designer, I have worked with and witnessed the needy and the poor and the ill. The amount of heartfelt generosity and caring in the world is just a drop in the bucket and I believe that Subaru is trying to help fill these buckets of so many needy. I had just donated over 200 children’s books and top seller adult books, and Jesse personally pick them up for me and helped dropped them off at a local charity. Subaru will always be my first choice as I know they are helping the community in a very big and special way. I love the home-town feeling of this special place: North Coast Subaru, Thank You!
September is Subaru Loves Learning, and we wanted to do something special for our local community. We had a personal connection with Deasy Elementary School, a few of our employees actually attended there as kids! We partnered with the American Association for the Advancement of Science and donated 125 science award-winning books for the students. We hope that this will raise a new generation of scientists that will work with Subaru and other organizations with the goal of bringing positive change to the earth.
During Halloween weekend, Cove Animal Rescue hosted another successful pet parade. Over 100 families from the community dressed up their pets in an array of creative costumes and marched through downtown Glen Cove into Village Square. A group of judges gave out awards for categories ranging from "most creative costume" to "largest pet." For participants that supported Cove Animal Rescue with pet supplies or monetary donations received a limited edition 2017 Subaru Impreza squeaky chew toy. We also held a raffle for a BarkBox prize pack, branded with Subaru Loves Pets which helps bring awareness to organizations like Cove Animal Rescue and the good they are doing for the animals in the community.
In 2008 I had just bought my first house, a 120+ year old cottage fixer-upper. Getting hardware and tools into a manual 2-seater presented certain problems. I sold my car and purchased a Forester. A few days after its purchase, we made our first visit to North Coast Subaru. We’ve never strayed since! Several weeks ago, I brought the car in for service. Bob noted I hadn’t been in for well over a year. I told him a brief summary of my hospitalizations; 3 months in total, with many more at home in slow recovery. He extended his concerns and well wishes. I then ran into Bill, I filled him in too on my saga, adding that it had been Leukemia that had nearly taken my life. He was shocked but happy to see that I was doing so well. Then he told me about Subaru’s Love Promise and their special program of sending well wishes to patients with leukemia. I was more than willing to make a donation, but he assured me all Subaru wanted were words of encouragement they could send on to the patients. I wrote out my card, hoping my thoughts might help another make it through the emotional roller coaster that comes with such a tough disease. Over the years, North Coast Subaru has provided me with more than great service; they have given me the warmth and security that comes with having a relationship with a family-owned business. I’m so proud of them for extending their help to families struggling with the pain of leukemia. Thank you, Subaru, for being part of my family and of so many others!
Long Island LLS staff were thrilled to meet with Jesse Liang from North Coast Subaru in Glen Cove, NY. We met with the hospital staff at Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola to deliver the care cards and blankets. The staff was so grateful for the donation and knew just how much this would mean to their patients. Jesse has already been engaged with LLS Long Island since our meeting and is looking for other ways to become involved. Additionally, the hospital was so thrilled with Subaru, that we hope to grow our partnership with Winthrop and LLS Long Island further. Thank you to Subaru for their generosity and for putting cancer patients first!
On behalf of Winthrop-University Hospital and its Cancer Institute, we can't thank North Coast Subaru and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society enough for their generous donation of beautiful blankets and notes for our patients in our outpatient hematology/oncology office. In a world that can sometimes be dark and cold, the warmth and kindness of North Coast Subaru and the Nassau County Chapter of the LLS shines bright. We know that our patients will be deeply touched by your acts of kindness and thank you once again for selecting Winthrop as a recipient of your generosity.
It was a pleasure partnering with Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Winthrop-University Hospital for this year’s Subaru Loves to Care Initiative. We specifically wanted to work with Winthrop because the Owner of North Coast Subaru’s wife is the teacher of one of the patients. Mrs. Santoro often visits the hospital to personally tutor her student so she can keep up with her studies. Some of the 127 Message of Hope cards were written by her students because they wanted to help lift the spirits of cancer patients and their families while they undergo a difficult time in their life. We are thankful for all that LLS and Winthrop are doing for these patients and the community.
During Share the Love 2015, we chose to participate in Subaru's new Match the Love Program and was recognized as 44 of 624 Subaru retailers who went above and beyond. We recently helped raise over $21,000 for Cove Animal Rescue during Subaru's 8th Annual Share the Love Event. The donation was put to immediate use for expanding the outdated facility to include an enclosed outdoor play area for dogs and a cage-free colony-like wing for the cats. CAR’s mission is to increase the adopt-ability of homeless dogs and cats through training, socialization and improved surroundings that facilitate transition to a home environment. Thank you for your service to bettering the lives of animals in our community.
During the holiday season, we partnered with the City of Glen Cove, U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, and other local businesses to collect new, unwrapped toys to be distributed to less fortunate children in the community. The Marine Corps Reserve states, “The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens. The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.” On collection day, all participating businesses and individuals gathered in downtown Glen Cove and were lead by the Marine Corps Reserve to Cradle of Aviation Museum, where all the toys were collected for distribution at a later date. Thank you U.S. Marine Corps Reserve for your service to our country and our community!
For almost ten years, the Glen Cove Senior Center and North Coast Subaru have partnered on a unique transportation initiative for Glen Cove residents. In 2007, North Coast Subaru donated a vehicle to provide additional help to meet the community’s needs and covered the cost of the service and maintenance for the Subaru. The Glen Cove Medical Transport program provides free transportation to all Glen Cove residents for doctor appointments, physical therapy sessions and any other non-emergency doctor, hospital, lab or medical center visits. Mayor Reggie Spinello says, “This is another great example of a strong, long-term public-private partnership where a vital service is provided to the residents of Glen Cove through the generosity of corporate sponsors and volunteers.”
Every year The City of Glen Cove and Cove Animal Rescue organizes a pet parade for local pet owners and pets to get together and have some fun. People and pets alike are encouraged to dress in costume and participate in several contests being held. Prizes will be awarded in six categories: Smallest Pet, Biggest Pet, Most Exotic, Best Costume, Most Original Costume, and Best Pet/Owner Costume Combo. At the end of the parade through downtown Glen Cove, a line of vendors await the creatively dressed pets. We partnered with Caring4Paws, a local dog walking company, and gave out treats, Subaru pet gear, informational material from ASPCA, and answered any question about proper pet care. This was a great way for the community to get together and give back to their pets.
According to statistics, "A pair of breeding cats, which can have two or more litters per year, can produce 420,000 kittens over a seven-year period." In an effort to control the population, Cove Animal Rescue has accepted local feral kittens, socialized and neutered them, and adopted them out. This is to prevent further flea infestations, odors from territory markings, and mating behaviors of un-neutered/un-spayed cats. The un-socialized adults are neutered to prevent further breeding and returned to their original location. To help CAR gain more exposure and educate the local community about their cause, we opened up our showroom to host a kitten adoption event. They setup an information booth, portable playpen, and a few kittens that were ready for adoption. They educated some of our customers on proper kitten care and peaked the interest of adoption for others. It was a fun event to host, and we look forward to hosting more adoption events with CAR!
