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 weâ€™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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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

Additionally, we help parents introduce their children to mountain biking by hosting a FREE kids 12 & under race. Summer nights are purely focused on having fun, racing and spending time together, not only as a partnership but as great friends. Mark Miller Subaru and the Mid-Week MTB Series look forward to years of memories and living the culture of Subaru.
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.
