Subaru Loves Learning 2017

This August, Subaru of America, Inc. will once again spotlight its “Subaru Loves Learning” initiative, part of its Love Promise philanthropic platform dedicated to supporting causes and passions that Subaru and its customers care about. As part of the automaker’s commitment to education, Subaru retailers will work alongside the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to provide students with award winning science books. Through Subaru Loves Learning, this year more than 75,000 books will be donated by Subaru retailers.
