Share the Love with Vulnerable Seniors This Year

Exciting news! For the eleventh year running, the Meals on Wheels Network is participating in The Subaru Share the Love Event. We're incredibly grateful to Subaru and its retailers for supporting our organization and the seniors we serve. 

From November 15, 2018 through January 2, 2019, 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, Friendship Centers of Emmet County will receive a share of the donation from Subaru vehicles sold in Michigan.

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 quick and easy way to do that is to share our posts about Share the Love on Facebook:

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