Subaru of America, Inc. in partnership with the Food Bank of South Jersey, donated 15,000 care packages to more than 750 children in Camden County, New Jersey to kick off its annual Subaru Share the Love Event.
Now on its 12th Share the Love Event, Subaru gives back to its local community as hundreds of employees at its headquarters in Camden, New Jersey packed and donated KidzPacks to children who have less access to food and proper nutrition. Each KidzPack includes four nutritionally balanced meals.
"As we launch our annual Subaru Share the Love Event to support national and local charities, we wanted to once again show our dedication to those in our hometown," Subaru of America President and CEO Thomas J. Doll said in a press release. "We hope this special event and landmark KidzPack donation will have a positive impact on the children of Camden, giving them every advantage to grow and learn without hunger."
The event will run until January 2, 2020, during which time the automaker will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased. The donation will be granted to four national charities – the ASPCA, Make-A-Wish, Meals on Wheels and the National Park Foundation – designated by the purchaser or lessee.
Additionally, participating retailers will donate a minimum of $50 in total to their registered hometown charities for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased during the campaign period. To date since its launch, the event has delivered more than 2 million meals, protected over 100 national parks, rescued more than 57,000 animals and made over 2,000 wishes come true.
