Meals on Wheels of Lehigh County is proud to announce it has received a $16,896 grant from Meals on Wheels America for its participation in Subaru of America’s ninth annual Share the Love Event. During the event held from November 17, 2016 through January 3, 2016, Subaru of America, Inc. donated $250 for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased to the customer’s choice of participating charities, including Meals on Wheels America, of which Meals on Wheels of Lehigh County is a Member.
Michele Grasso, Director of Development and Communications, said: “This year we need to raise $650,000 to meet the need for home-delivered meals, friendly visits and well-being checks for 450 homebound seniors and adults with disabilities each weekday. We cannot thank Subaru of America enough for supporting our program and hundreds across the country so that we may meet our mission of helping our clients to live nourished lives in their own homes, where they want to be.”
Meals on Wheels of Lehigh County partnered with Ciocca Subaru during the 2016 holiday season to raise funds and awareness of senior isolation and hunger in Lehigh County. Subaru employees delivered meals and learned first-hand the importance of this service that helps people live independently in their own homes for as long as possible.
