Subaru is committed to giving back to local charities and doing their part to protect the environment. That philanthropic spirit is helping to fuel the training and support of Trail Conference volunteers this season.

Liberty Family of Dealerships Shares the Love

During Subaru of America’s annual Share the Love event, Liberty Subaru in Emerson, N.J., named the Trail Conference as a Hometown Charity. From mid-November through the beginning of January, for every new vehicle purchased or leased at Liberty Subaru, $250 was donated to the charity designated by each buyer/ lessee. Liberty Subaru further committed to donating $25 to the Trail Conference for every new Subaru they sold or leased during the program period, regardless of which charity was chosen by the customer. And Liberty made an additional donation to our organization for Subarus serviced in their shop during the Share the Love Event.

Additionally, the owners of the Liberty Family of Dealerships decided to “share the love” at Liberty Hyundai and Genesis in Mahwah and Liberty Kia in Ramsey. When Trail Conference members bought or leased a new car from the Liberty Family of Dealerships and selected us as their charity of choice, Liberty donated $250 to our efforts.

Thanks to the generosity of the Liberty Family of Dealerships and our Trail Family, more than $41,000 was donated to the Trail Conference. Our gratitude goes to Liberty and everyone who chooses to support our mission!

Subaru Distributors Corp. Sponsors Trail University Workshops

Subaru Distributors Corp. has been named the official sponsor of our 2020 Trail University program. Bringing stewardship learning opportunities to a trailhead near you, our Trail University workshops include topics like introduction to trail maintenance, intro to trail construction, invasive plant identification, and much more. Thank you to Subaru Distributors Corp. for their generous sponsorship, which allows us to equip the next generation of outdoor lovers with the knowledge they need to protect natural areas and make great trail experiences possible.

Subaru Loves the Earth

Subaru of America, Inc. and TerraCycle are continuing their partnership to divert waste from landfills. Thanks to this partnership, participating Subaru dealers, as well as the Trail Conference, will be hosting a TerraCycle Zero Waste Box to encourage the community to recycle items that are typically hard-to-recycle, such as snack wrappers and disposable cups, lids, and straws. The collected waste will be repurposed into recycled products like park benches, picnic tables, and playground materials, and donated to Subaru community partners. Bring your trail snack wrappers to our headquarters or a participating Subaru retailer to give them a new life!
