ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Lifescape Community Services is proud to announce it has partnered with Napleton Subaru, 449 N. Perryville Rd, Rockford, this holiday season to collect canned food to help feed area seniors.
This local effort is part of the Meals On Wheels Association of America’s (MOWAA) participation in the national Subaru of America, Inc. “Share the Love” Event. The food drive runs from November 21 to January 2, 2013. For every two cans donated, Napleton’s will offer a $5 discount from the service bill.
Lifescape is also accepting $5 cash donations, the actual cost of a home delivered meal.
As one of the five Subaru “Share the Love” Event charitable partners, the Meals On Wheels Association of America (MOWAA) is awarding $200,000 in “Share the Love” grants to local Meals On Wheels programs that partner with Subaru dealerships in the fight to end senior hunger. Lifescape is eligible to win a MOWAA‐Subaru “Share the Love” grant of up to $35,000 to help provide nutritious meals to home-bound seniors in our four‐county service area.
Subaru is donating $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased during “Share the Love” to the customer's choice of one of five charities, including MOWAA. Over the past four years, proceeds from the
Subaru “Share the Love” Event have provided funds to MOWAA to support its vision to end senior hunger by 2020.
