The 14th annual Subaru Share the Love® Event will help deliver nutritious meals and compassion to Medina County’s seniors
Medina County Office for Older Adults (MCOOA) is proud to announce that it will be participating in the 2021 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 campaign. From November 18, 2021, through January 3, 2022, Subaru of America will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased to the customer’s choice of participating charities.
“Partnering with the Subaru Share the Love Program has been a positive community experience over the past three years. From creating senior gift bags, to sending out greeting cards to spreading the word about this excellent donation program, the activities created to support Subaru’s Share the Love Program have emphasized our commitment to the seniors in Medina County and to Meals on Wheels America. We look forward to the 2021 campaign to promote the Share the Love Program while providing essential services to the most vulnerable to our community,” said Laura Toth, Director of MCOOA.
Participating Meals on Wheels America members, like MCOOA, will receive a share of the donation raised by Subaru in their state.
“Meals on Wheels America is proud to partner with Subaru of America for the 14th consecutive year to enable more seniors to live with independence and dignity,” said Ellie Hollander, President and CEO, Meals on Wheels America. “Since 2008, the Subaru Share the Love Event has helped deliver more than 2.5 million meals and friendly visits to vulnerable seniors nationwide. We’re enormously grateful to Subaru and its retailers for their long-standing commitment to Meals on Wheels and the millions of seniors who depend on it for nourishment and companionship.”
Over the last 13 years, Subaru of America and its participating retailers have donated more than $200 million to its charity partners. This year’s Subaru Share the Love Event is on track to bring that total to over $225 million, proving there’s no limit to the amount of love we can all share.
