We collect approximately 2 tons of this hard-to-recycle trash monthly, which will be converted to furnishings and other usable items and donated locally.


It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.

Since 2015 Subaru, in partnership with the American Association for the Advancement Science, donated over 277,600 award-winning science books.  In addition, through our partnerships with Staples and we supported teachers and students with donations of S400,000 in gift cards and school supplies.

In 2020, Subaru and its retailers made a donation to Feeding America to provide 50 million meals to help feed people in need during the COVID-19 crisis,* making meals available at 199 local food banks across the country.
*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks. 


We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.

Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC) thanks Vic Bailey for helping area audiences of students and adults see classical music in a new and charmingly absurd way. In November, 2019 audiences throughout the foothills were inspired and delighted by the talent and exploits of The Mozart Group, an internationally known string quartet that creatively blends lighthearted comedy with the fine art of classical music. Tryon Fine Arts Center’s mission is “to serve as the creative driving force for performances, art education, exhibits and community collaboration in the foothills”. With support from Vic Bailey, TFAC was able to present two performances of Mozart Comes to Town: one to area schools and one to the public as part of the Main Stage Series.

We rely on donors and sponsors to get much of this important work accomplished. Vic Bailey Subaru has been a major supporter of ours for years and we are so grateful for their support! We can always depend on them to be a major sponsor of our two annual events. Our events are so important to gather together and get excited over our mission and build relationships with folks who care deeply for this environment. Recently, we reached out to Vic Bailey Subaru about a very exciting project that we'll be wrapping up soon! In June 2019, SPACE embarked on a fundraising campaign to restore the boardwalk that stretches over the wetlands of the Cottonwood Trail. The Cottonwood Trail is a 50-mile nature trail on a 116-acre preserve that SPACE owns and maintains. It's located just moments from downtown Spartanburg. The preserve includes a wetlands area with a 550 foot boardwalk that stretches out across it - perfect for nature lovers to hike across and observe nature from. The structure was in desperate need of repair but we are very close to having it fully restored! We are thrilled that our fundraising is almost complete for this project and proud to have Vic Bailey Subaru as a major supporter of the boardwalk restoration project. Their contribution is allowing us to open by August 1, 2020! The Cottonwood Trail is free and open to all visitors, dusk until dawn, 365 days a year. Please visit the Cottonwood Trail and when you see the folks from Vic Bailey Subaru know that they are committed to keep Spartanburg WILD!

Food for The Bridge at Green Street  –  Valerie F

Vic Bailey Dealership held a food drive for The Bridge at Green Street, a community center that cares for low income families. They collected over a ton of food for our center. At The Bridge, families can come once per month to get food. They can choose from the food available, much like going to the grocery store. When the food from Vic Bailey arrived, our shelves were bare. Without this food, we would have had to purchase food to feed the 400 families who needed food the first week in January. This drive was so very successful, in part because each employee brought a food donation with them to the Vic Bailey Christmas Party! Thank you for being a part of the community and for giving back to those in need of food at a time when the food was desperately needed.

We are so grateful to Vic Bailey Subaru and certainly blessed with their focus of giving back to their community.

Vic Bailey Subaru LOVES Pets Adoption Event  –  Angel C

Our annual Vic Bailey Subaru Adoption Event was held on October 18, 2019 and it did not disappoint! The crowds were gathered with excitement as we unloaded our van and got the event set up and rolled out the animals! This year we had a whole litter of puppies, several kittens and a few large dogs too! Every year this event grows larger and larger as the word spreads about the great animals and the great deals available that day. As the CEO of the Spartanburg Humane Society, I am always so confident that the best families will be there to adopt our animals. Some families came to enjoy the puppy snuggling while others were there to add to their families and bring home a brand new furry family member. Each adoption came with 6 nights of free boarding at SouthPort Kennels, every animal was up to date on their vaccines, spayed or neutered, microchipped, adult dogs were tested for heartworm disease and all dogs came with 6 months of heartworm prevention, cats are all tested for feline leukemia and feline aids. Also, Papa Johns gave everyone a free pizza so you could enjoy your first night at home without having to worry about what to make for dinner. All kittens and puppies were also given a voucher for a rabies vaccine at 4 months of age. Everything was provided for everyone of these amazing animals through a grant from Subaru and the ASPCA. The amazing staff at Vic Bailey Subaru is always, well...amazing! Everyone helped get everything set up, showed everyone around and made sure everyone had a great time and got to enjoy every single animal. We look forward to this wonderful event every year and are already getting our calendars cleared for a nice, warm Saturday next fall.

Vic Bailey Subaru Counts Down to Kindgergarten  –  Emily S

Thank you so much to Vic Bailey Subaru of Spartanburg for sponsoring Countdown to Kindergarten at The Children’s Museum of the Upstate-Spartanburg! Thanks to their generous donation, we were able to host a free, community-wide event that celebrated rising kindergarten students and their families. These four and five year old future students joined us a few weeks before the start of the school year to visit a mock classroom, practice carrying a lunch tray, and to check out the inside of a school bus. Families were also able to meet local vendors and service providers that offer critical resources to young children. From healthcare and wellness providers to social activity groups, parents made connections to help their children succeed in their first year of school. Vic Bailey Subaru was onsite handing out books to kindergarteners and working with advocates to show car seat safety demonstrations to parents. Most importantly, all of these resources were available free of cost to attendees thanks to Vic Bailey Subaru, allowing us to serve over 300 individuals. At The Children’s Museum we know how critical kindergarten readiness is to the success of students throughout their school careers. Thank you so much to Vic Bailey Subaru for leading the way in our community of Spartanburg to ensure all children are given a great start to kick off kindergarten!

Leukemia & Lymphoma Society blanket delivery  –  Allison R

For 50 years, Vic Bailey Automotive has been helping the Spartanburg community move and grow. With 6 franchises and a collision center, they consistently provide trustworthy and reliable service. Vic Bailey is family owned, family operated, and family first, with three generations working together. Several Vic Bailey employees have family members affected by blood cancer, and nearly everyone knows someone who has been impacted, so this initiative holds a special place for the company. “We want to give back to the community, and we love that Subaru encourages dealers to give back;” says Leslie Bailey, “our staff is proud to sell Subarus.” On the morning of the delivery, an excited crew of salesmen gathers to load boxes of blankets into cars. Vic Bailey Subaru customers have been writing messages of hope throughout June, with cards ranging from inspiring messages of strength and hope to hilarious jokes and encouragement, and we bring these for the patients as well. There are barely enough seats in the two SUVs for everyone to make the short drive to our delivery location, and we pile in. The Gibbs Cancer Center in Spartanburg provides an unprecedented level of care for their patients. We walk into the bright lobby, arms full of blankets and coloring books, to be greeted by the soothing sounds of a string quartet playing Haydn. Sharon Bartelt, MDC manager at Gibbs, is part of the welcoming party of nurses and community engagement staff who will be distributing the blankets on our behalf. “Patients in treatment are under immense stress, and these beautiful blankets are a great reminder that there are people who will support them through their cancer journey,” she explains. “Chemotherapy treatments are often cold, so the blankets are practical as well.” While we are unable to personally distribute the blankets and cards, we know that they are in good hands.

Gibbs Cancer Center donation  –  Baker M

The Vic Bailey Subaru team paid a visit to Gibbs Cancer Center & Research Institute last week to donate blankets, books, and notes of encouragement for patients. We are so grateful. These high-quality blankets help patients undergoing to feel more comfortable. Perhaps more important is the message community members care. As one of the cancer center managers put it "Patients are typically stressed when they start chemotherapy. This is a reminder that there are people who will support them through their journey."

The Pace Car on the #fastestnight  –  Laura R

In late April downtown Spartanburg is the scene of Nascar on two wheels - a professional bicycling race known as a criterium on a half mile course. Throughout the event, there are six races with the final one circling for 70 laps by a cyclist from around the globe. And along the course, there were 95 tailgating tents in 2019 with more expected in 2020. Vic Bailey Subaru generously provides a pace car that leads the pelotons for almost 6 hours. This long standing partnership has become a staple of the event and is critical for the safety of the riders. This event is part of a larger effort to promote health, wellness, and environmental stewardship throughout the Spartanburg community by incorporating it into Spartanburg's largest festival called Spring Fling. Thank you, Vic Bailey Subaru.

Elizabeth & Tabouli Love their Subaru Crosstrek  –  Elizabeth G

"The Subaru Crosstrek is a really neat, sleek-looking car. It has a great design. Tabouli loves it! It's easy for Tabouli to get in and out of the car. I feel that since it is so safe, if there was an accident, he would be safe. The price they gave me was great on the first shot. There was no haggling. It was a no brainer.
