The eleventh annual Subaru Share the Love® Event will help deliver nutritious meals and compassion to the seniors of Hampshire and Hampden County.

Florence, MA., November 15, 2018 – Highland Valley Elder Services is proud to announce that it will be participating in the 2018 Subaru Share the Love Event as a member of Meals on Wheels America – one of four national Share the Love charitable partners supported through the promotion. From November 15, 2018, through January 2, 2019, Subaru of America will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased to the customer's choice of participating charities.

Participating Meals on Wheels America members, like Highland Valley Elder Services (HVES), will receive a share of the donation raised by Subaru in their state. HVES has partnered with Steve Lewis Subaru in Hadley, MA to raise awareness for the popular year-end sales and giving event, and drive support for Meals on Wheels through meal deliveries for consumers and their pets, Stuff the Trunk food drives and also our Kick-off event on November 15, 2018. This event will feature Steve Lewis employees serving meals in the Walter Salvo Community Dining Room at 11:30 am. A celebration cake will also be served to attendees of the event.

“Meals on Wheels America is thrilled to partner with Subaru of America for the Subaru Share the Love Event for the eleventh year in a row,” said Ellie Hollander, President and CEO, Meals on Wheels America. “Since 2008, the Subaru Share the Love Event has helped local Meals on Wheels programs deliver nearly 2 million meals to vulnerable seniors nationwide. We remain proud and grateful to have the generous support of Subaru in helping us ensure that homebound seniors receive the daily nutrition and companionship they need to thrive.”

Over the last 10 years, Subaru of America and its participating retailers have donated more than $118 million to its charity partners. This year’s Subaru Share the Love Event is on track to bring that total to over $140 million, proving there’s no limit to the amount of love we can all share.
