Meals-on-Wheels Greater San Diego this week announced it received a $20,000 grant from Meals on Wheels America for its participation in Subaru of America’s “Share the Love” campaign.
During the event held from Nov. 20, 2015 through Jan. 2, 2016, Subaru of America, Inc. donated $250 for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased to the customer’s choice of participating charities, including Meals on Wheels America.
The local chapter also partnered with three local Subaru dealerships during the campaign, which included Kearny Mesa Subaru in San Diego, Frank Subaru in National City and Bob Baker Subaru in Carlsbad. The chapter received $15,000 from Kearny Mesa Subaru in San Diego from customers who selected the agency as their local charity of choice.
The funds will benefit the local Meals on Wheels America Member organizations throughout the year through additional grant opportunities, Annual Conference scholarships and by sponsoring the organization’s annual March for Meals campaign.
