Meals on Wheels is one of four national charities that will benefit from Subaru's Share the Love event this year.

When someone buys or leases a new Subaru, the company will donate $250 to one of the chosen nonprofits: the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the Make a Wish Foundation, Meals on Wheels, or the National Park Foundation. 

Stephanie Watson from the Arrowhead Economic Opportunity Agency says they support delivering hot meals to seniors up to seven days a week. 

"In 2018 alone, we delivered 188,000 meals," Watson said. "Seventy percent of those went to individuals who claim to be alone. So oftentimes, these meals are some of their only social interactions, those brief encounters with their drivers or their volunteers." 

The Share the Love event runs Nov. 14, 2019 - Jan. 2, 2020. On top of the $250 charitable donation, the Miller Hill Subaru location will chip in another $50 to Wildwoods Rehabilitation.
