Share the Love for Meals on Wheels this Holiday Season

November 14, 2019
Our Senior Nutrition Programs are excited to announce that we will be participating in the 12th annual National 2019 Subaru Share the Love Event through Meals on Wheels America this holiday season. This is a unique revenue share opportunity where our program has a chance to receive some extra funds for our local Meals on Wheels programs. 

From November 14 through January 2, 2020, Subaru of America will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased to the customer’s choice of the four participating national charities. Meals on Wheels America, the national organization we are a member of, is one of those charities.
  

Participating Meals on Wheels America members, like our local programs, will receive a share of the donations raised by Subaru in Wisconsin. We have connected with Chilson Subaru in Eau Claire, the closest Subaru retailer to us, to help raise awareness of how important our Meals on Wheels programs are. Not only will this increased awareness help generate donations from the community, but we are hoping that we succeed in recruiting Meals on Wheels volunteers as well! 

Meals on Wheels provides daily nutritious meals, nourishing companionship, and critical safety checks to our community’s homebound seniors. Any donation our programs receive, whether it’s from a participant, community member, organization, or business allows our program to reach MORE seniors as well as enable them to age with independence and dignity in their own homes – where they want to be. 

Over the last 11 years, Subaru of America and its participating retailers have donated more than $145 million to its charity partners nationwide.  This year’s Subaru Share the Love Event is on track to bring that total to over $170 million, proving there’s no limit to the amount of love we can all share. By purchasing or leasing a new Subaru during the Share the Love 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 Barron, Rusk, and Washburn Counties.
