Public Invited to Share the Love for Seniors
Subaru Donations Include Facebook Campaign Tied to More Funding
Three rural Meals on Wheels programs supported by Grand Rapids-based Area Agency on Aging of Western Michigan have been awarded money from the Meals on Wheels Association of America and Subaru through their ‘Share the Love’ campaign.
St. Ann’s Lake County Senior Services, Ionia County Commission on Aging and Montcalm County Commission on Aging were all awarded grants under the Subaru essay contest. The second round includes getting the most “likes” through Facebook. The essays are posted at http://mowaablog.org. The top organization will win an additional $500 and those placing 2nd through 10th will receive an additional $250.
“The funding from the Subaru, ‘Share the Love’ campaign will help serve seniors in rural counties who may not be able to provide meals for themselves,” says
Each agency plans to provide different meal related services with the funding they received from the Subaru ‘Share the Love’ contest.
The “Share the Love” grant is tied to Subaru’s Share the Love Event. The Share the Love Event will run from November 20, 2010 – January 3, 2011. Subaru will donate $250 to the customer's choice of one of five charities for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased.
