Subaru and Meals on Wheels “Share the Love” to provide food and friendship to homebound residents of Snohomish County.

 

Imagine your parent or grandparent living without basic needs like food – that is the harsh reality for too many seniors in Snohomish County that rely on Meals on Wheels.

 

Through #SharetheLove, Subaru and its retailers will have donated nearly $90 million, making the world a much better place for countless people, places and pets in need.    How does the #SharetheLove Subaru event work? Through Jan. 3, Subaru will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased.

 

The best part: the customer chooses which nonprofit receives the donation resulting from their purchase, and Meals on Wheels of Snohomish County is on the list! That means participating Meals on Wheels America members, including Senior Services of Snohomish County, will receive a share of the money raised by Subaru in their states. So if you were in the market for a new Subaru, plan on SharingtheLove with your favorite nonprofit! If you buy or lease a Subaru, the choice is yours on which charity(ies) to support!

 

Senior Services of Snohomish County operates this vital program throughout Lynnwood, Everett, Marysville, and all cities in the county. 

 

Your support allows the agency to continue serving the over 1,000 people already receiving services, and additional funds = more people and need off the wait list.

Being unable to stand makes it difficult for Lenna Arsenault to cook. As such, she relies on the frozen meals that Senior Services Meals on Wheels driver Jane Slager brings to the door each week.

“It’s a godsend. I’m not kidding you,” she said. “When you can’t get up, it’s just a godsend.”
