Subaru Share the Love Helps Meals On Wheels
TODAY MARKS THE START OF THE 8TH ANNUAL SHARE THE LOVE EVENT!
Community Cooperative is proud to announce its partnership with O'Brien Subaru this holiday season to help fight senior isolation and hunger, one Subaru at a time. Subaru's "Share the Love" event helps deliver nutritious meals and compassion to southwest Florida seniors.
Community Cooperative helped raise community awareness and participation to support local seniors in need. This local effort is part of the Meals On Wheels Association of America's participation in Subaru of America, Inc.'s national year-end "Share the Love" event, designed as a way to give back to local communities.
As a proud Subaru "Share the Love" event charitable partner, local Meals On Wheels Member programs that partner with Subaru retailers are eligible to earn grants of up to $20,000. This can provide an extra layer of support to help deliver nutritious meals and other important services to seniors in our community.
"Subaru and Meals on Wheels have worked together since 2008, helping deliver more than 1.2 million meals, friendly visits and safety checks to America's seniors," said Ellie Hollander, President and CEO, Meals on Wheels America. "We are truly honored to be one of Subaru's long-standing national charities for the eighth consecutive year. The substantial support generated through the Share the Love Event ensures that our seniors are not forgotten."
For every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased from November 19, 2015, through January 2, 2016, Subaru will donate $250 to the purchaser's choice of participating charity – one of which being Meals on Wheels. By the end of this year, Subaru and its retailers will have donated more than $65 million to charity through the Share the Love Event.
