Share the Love with Old­er Adults This Year

Excit­ing news! For the 14th year run­ning, the Meals on Wheels net­work is par­tic­i­pat­ing in the 2021 Sub­aru Share the Love Event. Over the past thir­teen years, Sub­aru and its retail­ers have helped Meals on Wheels to deliv­er more than 2.5 mil­lion meals nation­wide to seniors in need.

Why does Sub­aru sup­port Meals on Wheels? Too many seniors are strug­gling to stay inde­pen­dent and healthy. One in four seniors lives alone in iso­la­tion and one in sev­en seniors might not know from where their next meal is com­ing. This is sim­ply unac­cept­able, which is why KYC pro­vides the nutri­tious meals, friend­ly vis­its, and safe­ty checks to old­er adults in Elk Grove and Schaum­burg Town­ships. This vital sup­port keeps seniors in their own homes, where they want to be.

We’re incred­i­bly 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 about the Sub­aru Share the Love Event.

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS

This Novem­ber 18, 2021, through Jan­u­ary 3, 2022, for every new Sub­aru vehi­cle pur­chased or leased, Sub­aru will donate $250 to the customer’s choice of par­tic­i­pat­ing char­i­ties.* Meals on Wheels is one of four nation­al par­tic­i­pat­ing char­i­ties and has been since the incep­tion of the event. Through this event, as a mem­ber of Meals on Wheels Amer­i­ca, KYC will receive a share of the dona­tion from Sub­aru vehi­cles sold at par­tic­i­pat­ing Sub­aru Retailers.

You might not be in the mar­ket to pur­chase a new car, but if you are, please look into the Sub­aru 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:

And remem­ber: this hol­i­day sea­son you can ensure our senior neigh­bors are not for­got­ten, when you pur­chase or lease a new Sub­aru and select Meals on Wheels as your char­i­ty of choice.

*Dis­claimer: Sub­aru will donate $250 for every new Sub­aru vehi­cle sold or leased from Novem­ber 18, 2021, through Jan­u­ary 3, 2022, to four nation­al char­i­ties des­ig­nat­ed by the pur­chas­er or lessee. Pre-approved Home­town Char­i­ties may be select­ed for dona­tion depend­ing on retail­er par­tic­i­pa­tion. For every new Sub­aru vehi­cle sold or leased dur­ing the cam­paign peri­od, par­tic­i­pat­ing retail­ers will donate a min­i­mum of $50 in total to their reg­is­tered Home­town Char­i­ties. Purchasers/​lessees must make their char­i­ty des­ig­na­tions by Jan­u­ary 14, 2022. The four nation­al char­i­ties will receive a guar­an­teed min­i­mum dona­tion of $250,000 each.
