Catholic Charities joins Meals on Wheels America and Subaru in Sharing the Love this Holiday Season
Subaru’s tenth annual Share the Love Event ® will help deliver nutritious meals and compassion to Central Minnesota seniors
St. Cloud, MN- Catholic Charities of the Diocese of St. Cloud is proud to announce that it will be participating in the tenth annual Subaru Share the Love Event as a member of Meals on Wheels America – one of four national Share the Love charitable partners supported through the promotion. From now until January 2, 2018, Subaru of America will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased to the customer's choice of participating charity.
Catholic Charities Meals on Wheels Program will receive a share of the donation raised by Subaru in Minnesota. The organization has partnered with St. Cloud Subaru to raise awareness for the popular year-end sales and giving event, and drive support for Meals on Wheels.
“For the past ten years, Subaru of America has partnered alongside the Meals on Wheels network to deliver nutrition, companionship and comfort to our nation’s most vulnerable seniors,” said Ellie Hollander, President and CEO, Meals on Wheels America. “Since 2008, Subaru’s Share the Love Event has helped deliver more than 1.7 million meals to seniors served by Meals on Wheels. Funds raised through this year’s event will come at a critical time for the Meals on Wheels network, allowing our boots on the ground to deliver even more of these critically needed services.”
This year marks the automaker's 50th Anniversary in the U.S. and, for the second year in a row, there will be no cap on the total donation from Subaru of America to its Share the Love charitable partners. 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.
By purchasing or leasing a new Subaru during the Event and selecting Meals on Wheels America as your charity of choice, you can help deliver nutritious meals and other important services to seniors right here in Central Minnesota.
