WCCOA Partners with LaRiche Subaru to "Share the Love"
Wood County Committee on Aging,
Inc. Partners with LaRiche Subaru of Findlay to “Share the Love” this Holiday
Subaru’s “Share the Love” event
helps deliver nutritious meals and compassion to Wood County’s seniors
County Committee on Aging, Inc. (WCCOA) proudly partnered with LaRiche Subaru
of Findlay this holiday season in an effort to help fight senior isolation and
LaRiche Subaru delivered meals to older
adults in southern Wood County on Thursday, December 10 at the North Baltimore
Area Senior Center.
The event was all part of an effort to raise
community awareness and participation to support local seniors in need. This
local effort is part of Meals On Wheels America’s participation in Subaru of
America, Inc.’s national year-end “Share the Love” event, designed as a way for
Subaru retailers to give back to their local communities.
“We are very pleased that Subaru and MOWA
have joined forces again this holiday season to ensure that no senior goes
hungry,” said Angie Bradford, Director of Food Service for WCCOA.
As part of a national partnership with
Meals on Wheels America, Subaru will donate $250 to the purchaser’s choice of
participating charity – one of which is Meals on Wheels – for every new vehicle
sold or leased from November 19, 2015, through January 2, 2016. Since the Share
the Love Event began in 2008, Subaru and its participating retailers have
donated more than 1.2 million meals, safety checks and friendly visits to seniors
being served by local Meals on Wheels programs across the country. For more
