It’s the Season of Giving and we have news to share! Meals on Wheels America is participating in the Subaru Share the Love Event. In the past nine years of this event, Subaru has donated the equivalent of 1.7 million meals across the country. You can help us raise awareness about this campaign so we can earn donations to feed our Meals on Wheels clients.
Why does Subaru support Meals on Wheels? Because too many seniors are struggling to stay independent and healthy. Ten million seniors in America face the threat of hunger and millions more live alone in isolation. This is simply unacceptable, which is why Marion-Polk Food Share’s Meals on Wheels program provides nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks to the seniors in Salem and Keizer. This vital support keeps seniors lively independently in their own homes, where they want to be. We also deliver frozen meals on Friday so that meals aren’t missed on the weekend! Seniors can also enjoy meals through our program at Center 50+ and the South Salem Senior Center.
We’re grateful to Subaru and its retailers for supporting our organization and the seniors we serve. With that in mind, we thought you might want to learn a little bit more.
Here’s How It Works
Today through January 2, 2018 Subaru will donate $250 to the customer’s choice of participating charities for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased. Meals on Wheels America is one of four national participating charities and has been since the inception of the event. Through this campaign, as a Member of Meals on Wheels America, Marion-Polk Food Share will receive a share of the revenue earned in Oregon.
If you’re in the market for a new car, please look into the Share the Love Event to learn more. If you’re not shopping for a new vehicle, you can still help by spreading the word to your family and friends. A few quick and easy ways to do that:
- Share this blog post/article!
- Share posts about Share the Love on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram @marionpolkfoodshare
This holiday season, you can ensure our senior and disabled neighbors are not forgotten when you buy or lease a new Subaru and select Meals on Wheels America as your charity of choice.
