Share the Love with Vulnerable Seniors This Year
Exciting news! For the 15th year running, the Meals on Wheels network is participating in The 2023 Subaru Share the Love Event. Over the past fourteen years, Subaru and its retailers have helped Meals on Wheels to deliver more than 4.3 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 Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels provides the nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks to the seniors of Fort Bend & Waller County. 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
November 16, 2023, through January 2, 2024, for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased, Subaru and its retailers will donate a minimum of $300 to charity, like Meals on Wheels*. 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, Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels will receive a share of the donation from Subaru vehicles sold at participating Subaru Retailers.
If you are in the market to purchase a new car, 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:
- Share this web page!
- Share our posts about the Share the Love Event on Facebook, Twitter (@fortbendseniors), or Instagram (@fbsmow).
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 America as your charity of choice.
*Subaru will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased from November 16, 2023, through January 2, 2024, to four national charities designated by the purchaser or lessee. The four national charities will receive a guaranteed minimum donation of $250,000 each. All donations made by Subaru of America, Inc. 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 12, 2024. See your local Subaru retailer for details or visit subaru.com/share.
