From November 17, 2016 to January 3, 2017, Subaru will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased to the customer’s choice of participating charity.

 

“”Meals on Wheels, Etc. is pleased to partner with Mastro Subaru this holiday season to help fight senior isolation and hunger.” Sherry Fincher, Executive Director, Meals on Wheels, Etc.

 

Participating Meals on Wheels America members, like Meals on Wheels, Etc., will receive a share of the revenue raised by Subaru in their state. Meals on Wheels, Etc. has partnered with Mastro Subaru in Sanford, Florida to raise awareness for the popular year-end sales and giving event, and drive support for Meals on Wheels by delivering meals to homebound seniors and supporting the Annual Senior Holiday Party for 150 local seniors.

 

“Since its inception, Share the Love has helped deliver more than 1.4 million meals to seniors served by Meals on Wheels. It is our hope that this year’s event ensures that even more seniors receive the nourishment they need to continue living independently at home.” Edie Hollander, President and CEO Meals on Wheels America.

 

This year, for the first time throughout the life of the program, there will be no cap on the total donation from Subaru of America to its Share the Love charitable partners. By the end of this year’s event, Subaru hopes to exceed a grand total of $90 million donated since the creation of Share the Love.

 

“We at Subaru are thrilled to support our national and hometown charity partners for the ninth consecutive year,” said Alan Bethke, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Subaru of America Inc. “Through the Share the Love platform we are proud to continue our commitment to the causes our customers care about most and look forward to exceeding a grand total of $90 million donated through this initiative.

Happy Mother’s Day
My mom is sweet and kind, humble in spirit, the backbone of our family unit.  She is fun, loves to give of herself and dances anywhere to Johnny Cash.  She is 93 years young and when she puts on her high heels you can’t keep up.
