Wood County Committee on Aging, Inc. Awarded $2,500 “Share the Love” Grant from Meals on Wheels Association of America

Subaru’s “Share the Love” event helps deliver nutritious meals and compassion to Wood County seniors


Bowling Green, OH (March 17, 2014) – The Wood County Committee on Aging, Inc. (WCCOA) is proud to announce it has received a $2,500 grant from the Meals On Wheels Association of America on behalf of Subaru of America, Inc. for its participation in the company’s sixth annual “Share the Love” event. For every vehicle sold or leased between November 21, 2013 and January 2, 2014, Subaru donated $250 to the customer's choice of charity. Among the five national choices, the Meals On Wheels Association of America was included for the sixth straight year.

“This grant means so much to all of us at WCCOA,” said Angie Bradford, Director of Food Service at WCCOA. “The money will go directly to the mission of making sure no senior goes hungry.”

During this year’s event, WCCOA partnered with both Yark Subaru in Toledo and Lariche Subaru in Findlay during the 2013 holiday season to raise funds and awareness of senior hunger in Wood County.

“We are overwhelmed by the support of Subaru customers who generously selected Meals On Wheels as their beneficiary,” said Ellie Hollander, Meals On Wheels Association of America President and CEO. “As a result, our hardworking programs all around the country can deliver more nutritious meals, safety checks and smiles that serve as a lifeline to America’s homebound seniors.”

“This event continues to makes us very proud,” said Subaru Chief Marketing Officer, Dean Evans. “Having given nearly $7 million to Meals on Wheels programs over the last six years, Subaru is making a real difference in the lives of seniors in local communities.”

WCCOA has partnered with Yark Subaru of Toledo and Lariche Subaru of Findlay during the “Share the Love” event for the past four years and has received a total of $9,000. This year’s grant will be used to help fund the once a month Saturday meal program at the Wood County Senior Center.
