The 2016 Subaru Share the Love Event
Over for the past eight years, Subaru has donated nearly $10 million to the Meals on Wheels network—that’s the equivalent of more than 1.4 million meals to seniors across the country! Here’s how it works: from November 17, 2016 through January 3, 2017, for every new Subaru vehicle leased or sold, Subaru will donate $250 to the customer’s choice of participating charities. Meals on Wheels America is one of four national participating charities, and has been since the inception of the Event. And through this campaign, as a Member of Meals on Wheels America, Friendship Centers of Emmet County, Council on Aging, will receive a share of the revenue earned in Michigan. We know that not all of you are in the market to purchase a new car, but if you are—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. Share our posts about Share the Love on Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/Friendship-Centers-of-Emmet-County-Council-on-Aging-260673383944389/
