Community Involvement

While selling cars is what drives our business, getting involved is what drives our community. At Riverside Subaru, our car dealership values the people (and pets) that make our community special. Whether it's helping those less fortunate than us, or sponsoring a fun event, Riverside Subaru is dedicated to building community through giving.

We support a number of local charities in the New Bern, Havelock, and Morehead City, NC areas, often inspired by the voices of our customers. There's always more one can do to help, and we look forward to contributing to the betterment of the area for many years to come!

2016 Subaru Share the Love - Colonial Capital Humane Society

 Riverside Subaru was excited to award their 2016 Subaru Share the Love award to Colonial Capital Humane Society for the second year in a row!
Colonial Capital Humane Society rescues and relives the suffering of abused, abandoned, and stray animals. They provide their care until forever homes can be found.

This year, with the help of our amazing customers, we were able to raise over $3,000 for this organization. Visit their website to learn more about Colonial Capital Humane Society.

2015 Subaru Share the Love - Colonial Capital Humane Society

Riverside Subaru wrapped up its Share the Love event and donated more than seven thousand dollars to a local charity. In March 2015, the Colonial Capital Humane Society received $7,389 at a special check presentation at the dealership in New Bern.

The Colonial Capital Humane Society is an all-volunteer membership organization committed to the rescue and care of abused, abandoned and stray animals. In 2014 the Humane Society found new homes for more than 150 animals. Subaru says that's why its customers voted to donate to the non-profit.

"All of our customers wanted to give back to them and it says a lot about the Subaru customers," Dustin Tyson said. "They love animals and this is a great opportunity for them to do that."

The humane society says it will use the donations to help pay for vet visits, upkeep of its building and of course finding homes for its pets.

Habitat for Humanity

In the month of December, we are partnering up with Craven County Habitat for Humanity for a Home for the Holidays fundraiser. We are hosting the Sign a Stud tradition where people from our community can come and sign a stud with a prayer or blessing for the family that will be living in the next home built. Habitat for Humanity Craven County has already helped build 61 local homes, and we are excited to be a part of their next one! Please click here to learn more information on the event and fundraiser.
