The 2017 Subaru Share the Love Event
Over for the past nine years, Subaru and its retailers have helped the Meals on Wheels network deliver more than 1.7 million meals to homebound seniors across the country, including those in Emmet County! You can help support FCEC's Meals on Wheels program when you buy or lease a new Subaru during the 2017 Share the Love Event. Here’s how it works: from November 16, 2017 through January 2, 2018, for every new Subaru vehicle leased or sold, Subaru will donate $250 to the customer’s choice of participating charities. Choose Meals on Wheels America and 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/
