Exciting news! For the 13th year running, the Meals on Wheels network is participating in the 2020 Subaru Share the Love Event. Over the past twelve years, Subaru and its retailers have helped Meals on Wheels to deliver more than 2.3 million meals nationwide to seniors in need.
Why does Subaru support Meals on Wheels? Too many seniors are struggling to stay independent and healthy. One in four seniors lives alone in isolation and one in seven seniors might not know from where their next meal is coming. This is simply unacceptable, which is why Organization Name provides the nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks to the seniors of area. This vital support keeps seniors in their own homes, where they want to be.
We’re incredibly grateful to Subaru and its Retailers for supporting our organization and the seniors we serve. With that in mind, we thought you might want to learn a little bit more about the Subaru Share the Love Event.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS
This November 19, 2020, through January 4, 2021, for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased, Subaru will donate $250 to the customer’s choice of participating charities.* Meals on Wheels is one of four national participating charities and has been since the inception of the event. Through this event, as a member of Meals on Wheels America, Nutrition & Services for Seniors will receive a share of the donation from Subaru vehicles sold at participating Subaru Retailers.
You might not be in the market to purchase a new car, but if you are, please look into the Subaru Share the Love Event to learn more. If you’re not shopping for a new vehicle, you can still help by spreading the word to your family and friends. A few quick and easy ways to do that:
- Share this blog post/article!
- Share our posts about the Share the Love Event on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/seniormeals. You can also do this on Instagram (@nssmealsonwheels).
And remember: this holiday season you can ensure our senior neighbors are not forgotten, when you purchase or lease a new Subaru and select Meals on Wheels as your charity of choice.
*Disclaimer: Subaru will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased from November 19, 2020, through January 4, 2021, to four national charities designated by the purchaser or lessee. Pre-approved Hometown Charities may be selected for donation depending on retailer participation. For every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased during the campaign period, participating retailers will donate a minimum of $50 in total to their registered Hometown Charities. Purchasers/lessees must make their charity designations by January 15, 2021. The four national charities will receive a guaranteed minimum donation of $250,000 each.

These agencies, along with donations from Humana, Rose Center, , , , , Altus Home Health and have made it possible for thousands of seniors and disabled adults right here at home to receive the tools they need to remain living independently at home, but not alone all year long! Thank you all for everything you do to deliver the difference in our community.

Nutrition & Services is concerned about what a significant outbreak of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Jefferson and Hardin counties could mean for the vulnerable seniors we serve. We are closely monitoring information and resources being shared by the experts in disease control and are putting prevention and response plans into place. We follow health officials’ recommended steps to protect against coronavirus similarly to how we prevent the spread of other illnesses. Staff and volunteers are trained appropriately.
We know the critical importance of preparation in times like this and understand the delicate balance between panic and preparedness. While we do not anticipate a disruption in service at this time, we have shelf stable meals packaged and ready to deliver to clients as needed.
Our senior clients and the volunteers that serve them remain our utmost concern. It is our hope that healthcare professionals will find a way to end this epidemic, but in the meantime, we hope everyone will follow these precautions to stop the spread of this or any illnesses.
