On June 7, Subaru of America, Inc. (“SOA”) and Spangler Subaru today presented a check for $10,816 to the Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center (JMBCC) at Chan Soon-Shiong Medical Center at Windber (CSSMCW). The JMBCC was chosen as a beneficiary in the 2017 Subaru Share the Love event.
From November 16, 2017 to January 2, 2018, customers who purchased or leased a new Subaru vehicle could select from a list of charities to receive a donation of $250 from SOA. This year marks the automaker’s 50th Anniversary in the U.S. and, for the second year in a row, there will be no cap on the total donation from Subaru of America to its Share the Love charitable partners. At the culmination of this year, Subaru hopes to exceed a grand total of $115 million donated since the creation of Share the Love to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the event.
For 2017, SOA selected the four national charities: ASPCA, Make-A-Wish, Meals On Wheels America, and National Park Foundation. Subaru retailers could also elect to add a local charity; Spangler Subaru selected the Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center as its “hometown charity.”
