Meals on Wheels of Mercer County is participating in the 10th annual Subaru Share the Love Event as a member of Meals on Wheels America – one of four national Share the Love charitable partners supported through the promotion.

Subaru says from Nov. 16 to Jan. 2 it will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased to the customer’s choice of participating charity.

Program organizers say that participating Meals on Wheels America members, like Meals on Wheels of Mercer County, will receive a share of the donation raised by Subaru in their state. This year, Meals on Wheels of Mercer County has partnered with the Ewing Coleman Auto Group on Olden Avenue to raise awareness for their year-end event though print and social media, and drive support for Meals on Wheels through an informational table held at their location on Dec. 13.

“Checking the box for Meals on Wheels when you purchase a new vehicle at your local Subaru dealership ensures Meals on Wheels of Mercer County can continue to subsidize meals to those who really need them in our community,” said Sasa Olessi Montaño, chief executive officer of Meals on Wheels of Mercer County, in a statement. “Our participation and your purchase has resulted in direct dollars to help pay for meals locally.”
