Choose to Share the Love with vulnerable seniors

Staff Report

For the 10th year running, the Meals on Wheels network is participating in the Subaru Share the Love Event. In the past nine years, Subaru of America has donated over $12 million to Meals on Wheels — that’s the equivalent of more than 1.7 million meals to seniors across the country.

Why does Subaru support Meals on Wheels? Because too many seniors are struggling to stay independent and healthy. Ten million seniors in America face the threat of hunger, and millions more live alone in isolation. This is simply unacceptable, which is why YVEDDI provides the nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks to the seniors of Yadkin and Surry counties. This vital support keeps seniors in their own homes, where they want to be.

YVEDDI officials said they are incredibly grateful to Subaru and its retailers for supporting their organization and the seniors they serve.

Here’s how it works: Nov. 16 through Jan. 2, 2018, for every new Subaru vehicle leased or sold, Subaru will donate $250 to the customer’s choice of participating charities. Meals on Wheels America is one of four national participating charities and has been since the inception of the event. Through this campaign, as a Member of Meals on Wheels America, YVEDDI will receive a share of the revenue earned in North Carolina.

Remember — this holiday season, residents can ensure their senior neighbors are not forgotten when they buy or lease a new Subaru and select Meals on Wheels America as the charity of choice.
