Berks Encore joins Meals on Wheels America and Subaru of America, Inc. in Sharing the Love this Holiday Season
The 13th annual Subaru Share the Love® Event will help deliver nutritious meals and compassion to Berks County seniors
Reading, PA – In what has become an annual year-end tradition, Berks Encore is proud to announce that it will be participating in the 2020 Subaru Share the Love Event as a Hometown Charity and member of Meals on Wheels America – one of four national Share the Love charitable partners supported through the campaign. From November 19, 2020, through January 4, 2021, Subaru of America will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased to the customer’s choice of participating charities.
“We are grateful to be part of this annual national event, where our local retailer and partner, Steve Moyer Subaru, recognizes Berks Encore as a hometown charity and with their ongoing support is helping to make a difference in the lives of older adults,” said LuAnn Oatman, Berks Encore president and CEO.
Participating Meals on Wheels America members, like Berks Encore, will receive a share of the donation raised by Subaru in their state. Berks Encore has partnered with Steve Moyer Subaru Leesport to raise awareness for the popular year-end sales and giving event, and drive support for Meals on Wheels.
“Meals on Wheels America is proud to partner with Subaru of America for the 13th consecutive year to enable more seniors to live with independence and dignity,” said Ellie Hollander, President and CEO, Meals on Wheels America. “Since 2008, the Subaru Share the Love Event has helped deliver more than 2.3 million meals and friendly visits to vulnerable seniors nationwide. We’re enormously grateful to Subaru and its retailers for their long-standing commitment to Meals on Wheels and the millions of seniors who depend on it for nourishment and companionship.”
Over the last 12 years, Subaru of America and its participating retailers have donated more than $176 million to its charity partners. This year’s Subaru Share the Love Event is on track to bring that total to over $200 million, proving there’s no limit to the amount of love we can all share.
