What is the Subaru Love Promise?

Subaru and our retailers believe in making the world a better place and the Subaru Love Promise is our vision of respecting all people. This is our commitment to show love and respect to our customers and to work to make a positive impact in the world.

How is Schomp Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

The commitment Schomp Automotive has to its communities spans the decades the business has been in existence. Giving back continues to go hand-in-hand with our business’s success. The Schomp SPARK community initiative focuses on Education, Wellness, and Stewardship in our community. Stewardship - Schomp Automotive understands that people in our communities experience unforeseen challenges. We’re there to react and offer support in a myriad of ways. Whether it is responding to a natural disaster or making sure that our local little league team can afford new uniforms, we’ll be there to help. Health & Wellness - Healthy people make for healthy communities. We focus on children’s health and wellness. Our major effort in this area, extending over 29 years, is Schomp’s support for the Pediatric Burn Center at Children’s Hospital Colorado. We keep the words of our CEO, Aaron Wallace, in mind: “If we are going to give, let’s give to the weakest, the most helpless, the most injured, those most in need.” Education - We are passionate about children and education. Our charitable efforts in this area focus on vocational education, teaching life skills, and basic adult preparation. That’s why we support our local public education foundations, such as Arapahoe Community College, and have two annual award programs, Teacher of the Year and Coach of the Year, to recognize outstanding educators in our community.

Schomp Subaru's Community Care Kits - Greyden C

We are so thankful for the Schomp Subaru Community Care Kits. The program was an incredible response to the current homeless crisis we are experiencing in our city. To build an impactful program in the community, Schomp Subaru collaborated with us and multiple non-profits focused on providing resources for those experiencing homelessness to understand their needs and what would help support our outreach efforts. Here at the St. Francis Center we provide shelter as well as services that enable people to meet their basic needs for daily survival and to transition out of homelessness. “People experiencing homelessness face a daily struggle to survive each day. Through street outreach our team knows how small gestures of kindness can offer much needed hope in the moment. We are grateful for Schomp Automotive’s commitment to care for our unsheltered community members.” Jim Boberschmidt, Director of Outreach, St. Francis Center of Denver. The Schomp Subaru Community Kits included the following items; Water-Resistant Fanny Pack, Crew Socks, Sunscreen, Lip Balm, Anti-Bacterial Wipes, Shampoo, Conditioner, Deodorant, Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Hair Comb, and Lotion. Street Outreach is basically the craft of community connection that requires rapport-building and trust. The Schomp Subaru Community Cares Kits worked well because I could connect quickly with people, in the moment, and that is key. In addition, the Schomp Subaru Community Cares Kits were so nicely packaged that they were kind of a gift, a treat. This makes rapport-building easier. I didn’t have to fumble around with my outreach gear, in a situation that can already be awkward enough—for all concerned. I was able to simply hand something of value, that was functional and neatly packaged—and folks were truly grateful. Thank you so much to Schomp Subaru for the thoughtful and well-designed community support. The Schomp Subaru Community Cares Kits helped make the connection! - Greyden Charlesworth, St. Francis Center Community Outreach Coordinator.

Cares Kit Program - Andrea M

I am a local social worker and co-responder in Arapahoe county. I reached out to multiple agencies in an attempt to find care kits for our local homeless population. Upon reaching out, Nikki with Schomp Subaru, responded immediately. Schomp Subaru provided me with 50+ care kits within 3 days. The kits included items such as socks, toiletries, and other sanitary items. We are so thankful for the charitable support and prompt follow up from Nikki with Schomp Subaru and would highly recommend working with them in the future.

Supporting Students in Aurora - Jill R

Immediately upon opening their location in Aurora, Schomp Subaru has been focused on partnering with and supporting the local community. Their investment into Aurora Public Schools students through the 2020 Share the Love event helped catalyst a review and refresh of all financial literacy curriculum for K-12 students. The fact that our students will learn how to balance a budget, understand investment markets and other critical financial skills is a tribute to Schomp Subaru. I cannot say thank you enough for your support of our students and community!

Schomp Subaru provides to local college - Eric D

Schomp Subaru utilized proceeds from Subaru share the love to provide a unique gift to the Arapahoe Community College (ACC) Sturm Collaboration Campus. Schomp will provide around $250,000 over the next 5 years to support innovative programs and student scholarships as the region comes back from the devastating COVID-19 pandemic. Schomp and ACC has had a long-standing partnership with our Auto-tech program, but through our expanded partnership, ACC is poised to provide a talent pipeline to all areas of Schomp Subaru including HR, Sales, Finance, IT, and of course Automotive Techs. Schomp's investment will help countless students through their educational journey as they enter the workforce. Schomp's forward thinking vision matches well with the ACC Sturm Collaboration Campus vision of working alongside the entire talent ecosystem including k-12, community college, universities, workforce centers, and industry. The Sturm Collaboration Campus co-locates these entities to create a more efficient and effective talent pipeline system for both students and industry. Schomp's commitment to their community is second to none, and they demonstrate this through their quality service, outstanding workplace reputation, and of course their commitment to give back and invest in community driven initiatives that will make a tenfold difference in the lives of community members.


Dedicated to their Community - Katlynn D

Working with Schomp Subaru was an absolute pleasure. In the winter of 2020 the APS Foundation was a Hometown Charity Partner. We decided the funds raised would go to Personal Financial Literacy for Aurora Public Schools Students. In Aurora Public Schools, many students are first-generation students and financial education is not something their families have. Being able to teach students from a young age how to properly use items like a credit and debit card, what is good debt, how to invest funds. All of these items our students need to be successful in their professional life. Schomp Subaru is truly changing the lives of our students, and their families. We are incredibly grateful.

Schomp Subaru Helps At-Risk Children and Families - Marnie K

Founded in 2008, WeeCycle strives to improve the health and well-being of at-risk Colorado infants and toddlers. We collect, “weecycle” and match essential baby gear – including diapers, baby food and formula – both directly to families in need and through our network of community partner organizations serving individuals experiencing poverty, homelessness, domestic violence, teen pregnancy and under-employment, as well as those serving immigrants and refugees. By “weecycling” baby gear, we help keep children clean and safe and contribute to a healthier environment for their future. While 2020 has been a trying year for all of us, it's been especially difficult for the most vulnerable families that WeeCycle serves. Aside from the stress of the pandemic, these families are faced with not knowing where their next meal is coming from or how they'll pay the rent. Though we were forced to cancel most of our fundraising events due to Covid-19, we were fortunate enough to be able to host our annual Birdies for Babies Golf Tournament in September 2020. Schomp Subaru has a strong history of supporting the communities in which they operate and we were thrilled to receive their support for this event, which raised over $50,000 to help distribute essential items such as diapers, wipes and baby food and formula to vulnerable populations throughout Denver and beyond. We cannot thank Schomp Subaru enough for their support and generosity, and look forward to a continued partnership with Schomp to help make our community a better place for all of us.

Von's Vision Center - Austin A

My name is Austin Alley and I am the Director of Operations with Von's Vision, the personal foundation of Denver Bronco Von Miller. The mission of Von's Vision is to provide low-income students with access to the eyecare and corrective eyewear they need to be their best in the classroom and in life. Earlier this year, we began a major partnership with Schomp Subaru to launch our latest Von's Vision Center. This Vision Center is a mobile kiosk installed at local Boys & Girls Clubs that house all of the frames, accessories and optometry equipment needed to provide no-cost vision screenings and prescription glasses to in-need students. While we have yet to officially "launch" this program to the public (COVID restrictions at the Boys & Girls Clubs have prevented us from working directly with the kids for the time being), this Vision Center with Schomp Subaru with provide hundreds of students with access to no-cost optometry care and much-needed glasses. Across the entire district, Denver Public Schools has more than 27,000 low-income students who need some level of vision correction. The impact that Schomp Subaru's Von's Vision Center will create will be lifechanging for a number of these low-income students. By being able to see well, the entire trajectory of a student’s life will change. They will perform better in the classroom, focus more outside of the classroom, and ultimately pursue their dreams. This Von's Vision Center will be staffed with local volunteer doctors once a month to perform regular no-cost eye exams to the students at the Boys & Girls Club in Aurora, CO.
