In celebration of its 50th anniversary, Subaru of America, Inc. has donated a new 2018 Subaru Outback to the Whatcom Council on Aging’s Meals on Wheels and More Program in partnership with Meals on Wheels America.
In honor of the vehicle donation, Dewey Griffin Subaru will host a celebration at their new Iowa Street Dealership on Friday, October 27 at 11:00 a.m. The event will feature the presentation of the vehicle, wrapped with Meals on Wheels America and ‘Subaru Loves to Help’ co-branding, to the Whatcom Council on Aging (WCOA) by a representative of Subaru of America. Immediately following the reception, WCOA and Dewey Griffin staff will join a volunteer driver on the new vehicle’s maiden Meals on Wheels delivery and then on to Bellingham Senior Activity Center for a second celebration at 1:00 p.m.
Why: This fall, Subaru donated 50 new 2018 Subaru Outback vehicles to select Meals on Wheels programs throughout the country, to be used in the delivery of an estimated 53,000 meals to an additional 3,700 seniors across 39 states. Subaru has supported the national Meals on Wheels network for the last nine years through its annual philanthropic event, Share the Love, contributing more than $12 million to Meals on Wheels America and providing more than 1.7 million nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks to seniors.
The Subaru and Meals on Wheels partnership is part of Subaru Loves to Help, a pillar of the automaker’s larger Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment effort dedicated to making a positive impact on local communities across the country.
