Share the Love 2016-2017: $18,766.25

Thanks to the generosity of more than 40 new Subaru owners, $15,443.34 has been donated to support the local Meals on Wheels program! Because of the Grand Forks Senior Center's participation in Share the Love, Meals on Wheels of America provided us with an additional $3.322.91.

Subaru of America hosts its “Share the Love” event annually, from November to January. For each new Subaru sold, buyers can pick one of five charities to receive $250. For the past three years, Meals on Wheels Grand Forks has partnered with Grand Forks Subaru as a Hometown Charity and is the only local charity. 

This generous donation is equal to 1,930 meals for homebound seniors. An average of 95 customers receive a meal each day and pay what they can afford. The funds from Subaru of America will cover the remaining meal cost.    

A BIG THANK YOU to Subaru of America for being so charitable, to Grand Forks Subaru for supporting the local Meals on Wheels program and the Subaru customers for choosing to keep the funds local!
