Meals On Wheels gave 350 Warmest Wishes holiday gift bags to some of its neediest meal recipients on Thursday, December 14. These bags contain toiletries, tissues, homemade placemats, and other practical items, and convey to Meals On Wheels participants that they are not forgotten during the holiday season. This delivery is also part of Subaru’s Share the Love Event. The Warmest Wishes gift bags are made possible by Meals On Wheels, Doyle Chevrolet Subaru, and generous donors.
During this year’s Share the Love event, taking place from November 16, 2017 to January 2, 2018, Subaru will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased to the customer’s choice of the four national charities with a minimum guarantee of $250,000. Participating Subaru retailers can select one or two hometown charities from their local community in which customers can direct their support. This year, more than 660 local charitable organizations are participating in the Subaru Share the Love event. With some retailers adding their own donations to the hometown charities, total donations by Subaru and its participating retailers are expected to exceed previous years. At the culmination of this year, Subaru hopes to exceed a grand total of $115 million donated since the creation of Share the Love to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the event.
