Love the Experience
Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy. That's why we work with groups committed to that cause, including the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) and the National Wildlife Federation.
Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve the earth and keep it as beautiful as we found it. The National Park Foundation and the National Wildlife Federation are just two of the thirteen environmental organizations Subaru has supported.
It's our belief that education should be accessible to everyone. That's why Subaru backs nonprofits like the Geological Society of America, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and five others who are committed to making the pursuit of knowledge available to all.
In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We have a ways to go, but for Subaru, partnering with groups like Meals on Wheels, the Make-A-Wish Foundation and fifteen others devoted to community improvement seemed like a good place to start.
Subaru believes we should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. It takes funding and research to find cures and improve access to healthcare so we've supported four groups committed to those causes, including the Alzheimer's Association and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
At Mark Miller Subaru, our Love Promise to the Utah and the Salt Lake area can be seen in our partnerships with local nonprofits and charities. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of the Salt Lake community, but to serve it as well.
We were proud to be apart of the 2015 Fall Fundraiser Party in its 22nd year. This is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Utah Avalanche Center and 90% of the event costs are donated, so nearly all of what participants spend for an evening of food, drink, prize drawing, socializing, music, and great auction items goes directly to paying for the avalanche advisories and education that winter back-country users use all winter to have fun and stay safe.
A beautiful day greeted many golfers and supporters on the morning of the 20th annual Mark Miller Subaru Charity Golf Tournament. All proceeds benefiting the Humane Society of Utah and the Children's Center. Over $4,500 was donated to both charities. The donations will provide many amenities to beloved pets and resources to children and their families!
Mark Miller Subaru was proud to sponsor the Urban Arts Festival. We loved the creativity that we saw, from all types of artists. Graffiti Murals littered the area bringing a great artistic vibe to the Gateway Mall. Tons of fantastic local rappers gave us real, local jams and helped us dance our way through the day.
"We've got to be environmental stewards. We've got to protect what we have so it's there in the future for your kids and our future grandkids to enjoy" - Jeff Miller At Mark Miller Subaru we believe who we are is what we leave behind. We need to protect and preserve the world we live in. Subaru is a truly different type of car company and same goes for our customers that love the outdoors and adventure. That's why we went solar, because it's the right thing to do.

Since 2010 we have been a very proud sponsor and supporter of the Utah Pride Festival. This year was the biggest and best yet as the LGBT community gathered in downtown Salt Lake City. We featured a very special piece at our booth in which people could write what "Pride Is" to them on the official Subaru Outback. Mark Miller Subaru plans on supporting for years to come.
On May 14th we had the pleasure of working with a close partner of ours, TreeUtah, to clean up the Jordan River. The Jordan River extends throughout the Salt Lake Valley and is home to many animals and has a great paved bike path. Many use this trail to remain active, relax and picnic with their families.
Subaru of America is truly leading the way for keeping our earth clean and green for many generations to come. During the Subaru Loves The Earth campaign they teamed up with All Green Electronics Recycling for a massive event. Mark Miller Subaru was proud to back that and gathered our own electronics in the showroom. On top of this effort as a dealership we planted another 2,000 trees with TreeUtah to support our own green health in Utah.
Cody, Chris, & Madison have been super supportive of the Utah Avalanche Center and our mission to keep people on top of the Greatest Snow on Earth. They have attended and supported several of our events and made a major donation, all to support the community and a cause they care about. Look at all they are doing for the community and the smart choices they are making to maximize their environmental responsibility - these guys really care about doing well by doing good and have been great to work with. I wish other companies would all be as great to work with.
Partnering with Mark Miller Subaru for the Do Good Feel Good Event 2015 was an absolute pleasure! Mark Miller helped to raise $13,353.75 for CAWS during this event. This donation will help CAWS save the lives of hundreds of kittens during this summer. We are so grateful and proud to have partnered with Mark Miller. It is so wonderful to know that there are businesses working so hard to support the organizations in the community that they serve. Thank you Mark Miller Subaru!!!
HEAL Utah has truly appreciated Mark Miller Subaru's commitment to improving our environment-- whether through adding solar panels to their dealership, planting trees, or partnering with local non-profits like HEAL to make Utah a better place to live. Mark Miller Subaru truly leads by example in everything they do-- and we appreciate the very generous ways they've supported HEAL's mission over the years to promote renewable energy, clean up Utah's air, and protect public health from nuclear, toxic, and dirty energy threats. Finally, Mark Miller Subaru not only sells some of the cleanest vehicles on the market--their PZEV models-- they've encouraged state leaders to adopt overall stricter vehicle standards for new cars so we can all breathe a little easier. Thanks for all you do!
Subaru is not only a car, but a lifestyle. That is why this partnership works in such an organic and promising way. The lifestyle that Garbett & Mark Miller Subaru can offer is going to make a huge impact on the SLC Market! It is a pleasure to partner with a company that is as passionate about sustainability and "Green" living as Garbett, and look forward to have a great future!

To the manager, My name is Lundy Wren. I and my granddaughter Kathryn McKeever came to your dealership on June 10, to look for a car. She lives in Cedar City, Utah and had driven up late the night before. We only had one day to get a deal done because she had to be back for work on Wednesday and by the time we reached your store it was late in the afternoon. Manny came out to greet us and right away I felt at ease with his easy demeanor. I could tell right off there would be none of the high pressure sales tactics we had encounter in most every other dealership we had been to throughout the day. He patiently showed her car after car until she found one she loved and let her drive it. It was a White 2013 Subaru Legacy. He took us into your waiting area and offered us refreshments while we got the process started. Both men were extremely knowledgeable of the products and their jobs and took excellent care of us through the entire process. They really seemed to care about us. If they were just acting then they are extremely good actors. I don't think it was an act, I think they really are good at their jobs and really do care about the people they come in contact with. If these two fine gentlemen are any indication of the caliber of people you have working there then it's understandable why you've been in business so long. Please pass my thanks and kudos on to both of them and thank you so much for having them there to help us. Sincerely, Lundy M. Wren
My first car was a Subaru. I bought it used and abused and it still ran like a champ. I was in love. Eventually, I had to part ways with my beloved GL but I always knew I wanted another Subaru. Years later as a business owner I was approached about partnering on events with Mark Miller Subaru. I, of course, did not hesitate because although I no longer owned a Subaru, I was still a fan. Time went on and several events later I began to realize several things. Subaru itself was amazing. It really had a unique interest in the community and Mark Miller Subaru not only supported events at my store they also graciously contributed to events for the Sugar House community. Pretty soon I had a Subaru again and more and more of my customers followed suit. Do you blame them? Those who drove Subarus were like some crazy family and it was good to be part of the family again. Before I bought my second Subaru I had been hesitant about buying a new car. Okay maybe hesitant is an understatement-I was actually petrified. At this point, I had never had a car payment in my life and was very hesitant to even consider buying a new car. I began to talk to the Event Coordinator, Chris Woolston about my trepidation. He assured me that buying a car from Subaru would not be the experience I was so frightened of.
United Way Day of Caring We're always happy to lend a helping hand. At this event, we spent the morning helping with basic landscaping at Head Start Salt Lake and many other constructive projects.
2013 Rally Into Spring Subaru Meet More than 120 vehicles and 250-plus people attended this fantastic event. A BBQ was available, live music streamed over speakers, and Subaru owners had a great time catching up.
Mid-Week Mountain Bike Race Series The series is founded on offering a race environment for all ability levels at an affordable price - $15. Additionally we offer the opportunity for families to get out together or for a parent to get their children started in mountain biking.
Tree Utah and Project Oxygen For every car we sell in 2014, we're planting a tree with a local organization TreeUtah and the Salt Lake County "Million Trees" foundation.
Utah FACES This year, more than $900 dollars was raised for Utah FACES to help in the fight of pet homelessness.
Coffee Wednesday Mark Miller Subaru reaches out to the community with an event called "Coffee Wednesday" on a weekly basis. Customers and employees suggest a local coffee joint, and we spend two hours socializing and getting to know our community. And the best part? With a simple Facebook "like," coffee is on us. It's a joy to sit down and simply get to know our customers and local business owners! People are encouraged to show us their Subie keys for an extra bit of swag. All are welcome; your choice of beverage or warm cup of joe awaits you. Know of any local coffee shops in Salt Lake City that Mark Miller Subaru should check into? Be sure to email us those suggestions at email@example.com. Don't miss the next stop. Check in on our Facebook page. We can't wait to spend a few hours with our Subaru Fam. Sincerely, Mark Miller Subaru Team
Discrete Clothing My name is Julian Carr, professional skier and founder of Discrete clothing. My work - and 2011 Subaru Outback - take me all over the country. In the last 2 1/2 years, these are all the places I've adventured to in my Outback: Aspen, Boulder, Whitefish, Los Angeles, Yellowstone, Sun Valley, Salt Flats, Breckenridge, Vail, Alta, Snowbird, Solitude, Park City, Snowbasin, Stevens Pass, Bozeman, Missoula, Teton Pass MT, Whistler, Portland, San Francisco, Denver, Ecola Point (Oregon), Bend, Venice, Malibu, Yosemite, Tahoe, and Jackson Hole. I've had many times where I thought I was going to run out of gas in a blizzard in the middle of the night - with the needle so far below empty, it was impossible the car kept going - but it did! I've pulled up to important business lunches, impressing my clients with the car, helping me land new accounts. I've pulled into countless ski resorts with heads turning checking out my incredible wrap job displaying Discrete and Mark Miller Subaru. I could go on. At the end of the day, my car and I have a very tight bond. I am a Subaru driver for life. I love my Subaru Outback. -Julian Carr
Adam Barker Photography My name is Adam Barker, and I make my living as a professional active lifestyle and outdoor photographer. Clients rely on me to produce exceptional work, regardless of the obstacles. I need to be able to rely on my vehicle to get me where I need to be, when I need to be there. I have that reliability with my Subaru Outback. Even better, I have a team of passionate, trustworthy individuals behind that vehicle. Mark Miller Subaru and Subaru of America have been key components in helping me go further, climb higher, and dig deeper in my quest to capture the micro-seconds that define our most memorable moments. My vehicle, and my relationship with the good folks at Mark Miller Subaru have been integral in helping me capture some of my most memorable imagery, like this classic bend of sacred water in Montana. I know that there are very few places my Subaru can't take me. And that's as good as any camera body or lens in my quiver. They say that getting lost is just another way of saying "going exploring". Here's to many more years of getting lost with my Suby! Adam Barker www.adambarkerphotography.com 801-550-9141

Environmental Awareness When the Mark Miller Subaru South Towne and Midtown stores in Salt Lake City say they're green, they mean it. Environmental awareness is part of the business plan. In fact, the dealership group has an environmental mission statement. Mark Miller Subaru has made improvements to the facilities to reduce waste at both locations. The car washes collect and recycle much of the used wash water, which ends up saving about 75 gallons per car wash. Recycled materials make up most of the floor and wall coverings in the dealerships, including the service drives and service bays. The locations adjust lighting in the building based on available sunlight, which reduces electricity usage. Refurbished bathrooms use less water and reduce paper trash.
Do Good Feel Good EventSince 2011, Mark Miller Subaru Midtown and South Towne locations have generated more than $250,000 in donations toward the annual Do Good Feel Good Event. Every April, Mark Miller Subaru donates $75 to a local non-profit for every car sold. Customers can select which charity to support. In 2013, their options were as follows: Boys and Girls Club of Salt Lake, HEAL Utah, The Ronald McDonald House, Special Olympics, Utah FACES, and the YWCA! This year, five brand-new charities will participate in the Do Good Feel Good Event. At the event's close, they hold a gathering at either Mark Miller Subaru South Towne or Midtown to celebrate! Each non-profit has their own booth on site and can teach individuals what they do and how they impact Utah. All proceeds from the event go toward the charities as well. Every year, we look forward to the Do Good Feel Good Event and how much it gives back to our community.
