Local Volunteers in Medicine Presented $23,000 from Subaru 2017 Share The Love Event
This marks the fourth year in a row that Peacock Subaru has chosen Volunteers in Medicine to receive a local share made available in conjunction withSubaru of America, Inc.’s Share the Love program, which donates $250 for every new Subaru sold or leased to the customer’s choice of national charities or one hometown charity chosen by the local auto dealer.
“This is not only a wonderful gift from Peacock Subaru, but it is a tremendous contribution to the community,” said Pamela Toney, the non-profit’s executive director. “There are more than 17,000 patients in this area who do not have health insurance, and this money will be put to great use.”
The 2017 program contributions, along with a match of more than $2 million from Subaru retailers, brings the total amount donated during the 10-year-old national program to more than $118 million.
“The program demonstrates a shared commitment by Subaru and local retailers in making the world a better place,” said Warner Peacock, president and CEO of Peacock Automotive. “We believe in being a positive force in the communities where we live and work, not just with donations but with actions that set an example for others to follow.”
Over the years, Peacock Subaruhas led local initiatives to encourage pet adoptions and collect donations for animal shelters. The dealership has also donated blankets and craft kits to local cancer care facilities in partnership with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as part of Subaru’s Loves to Care campaign. Peacock Subaru has also donated gardening supplies and books to local schools.
