Wilde Subaru Helps Raise Money for the Food Pantry of Waukesha County! As you know, Subaru of America has partnered with Feeding America to help address the issue of hunger in the US. Each holiday season, Subaru announces the Share the Love event that allows dealerships to choose a local charity to give funds to. For 2016, Subaru donated $250 to four national charities or a pre-approved Hometown Charity designated by the purchaser or lessee, up to $15,000,000 in total. For the third year, we chose the The Food Pantry of Waukesha County as our hometown charity and we donated an extra $50 for each sold or leased vehicle, up to $7,500 total.
With your help, we were able to raise an amazing $46,001 for our Hometown Charity. Thank you to everyone who purchased or leased a car. We know this donation will go to help local hungry and we look forward to raising money again this holiday season. According to their website, “We started humbly in 1978 in the basement of a volunteer’s home, but we now serve over 5,700 residents a month and foster compassion and hope throughout the community. Waukesha is Wisconsin’s third most populated county, and the number is only growing, meaning we receive new clients every day. In addition to food, we provide goods and services, and we work with clients to make them more self-sufficient. Our clients are mostly children, working poor and people who have fallen under tough times, and we work to improve their conditions, one person at a time.”
