Douglas County Senior Services Joins Meals on Wheels America

and Subaru of America in Sharing the Love this Holiday Season


16th Annual Subaru Share the Love Event helps deliver nutritious meals and compassion to Douglas County seniors


(Douglas County, Ore.) Douglas County Commissioners Tom Kress, Chris Boice, and Tim Freeman are pleased to support our Douglas County Senior Services Department as they participate in the annual grant program offered by the Subaru Share the Love Event.  As a member of Meals on Wheels America, Douglas County Senior Services operates seven senior dining and delivery meal sites in Douglas County that serve over 78,000 meals a year.  Meals on Wheels is one of the four national Share the Love charitable partners supported through the Share the Love grant campaign.  For any new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased at one of the more than 630 Subaru retailers from Thursday, November 16, 2023, through Tuesday, January 2, 2024, Subaru will donate a minimum of $300 to the customer's choice of participating charities. Participating Meals on Wheels America members, like Douglas County Senior Services, will receive a share of the donations raised by Subaru in our state.  Retailers can also add up to two local hometown charities to receive an additional $50 for each vehicle sold or leased. Additionally, 417 participating Subaru retailers nationwide will donate an additional $5 to their registered hometown charity partner for every routine Subaru vehicle service visit during the campaign period. 


Meals on Wheels America is proud to partner with Subaru of America for the 15th consecutive year to enable more seniors to live with independence and dignity,” said Ellie Hollander, President and CEO, Meals on Wheels America. “We’re enormously grateful to Subaru and its retailers for their long-standing commitment to Meals on Wheels and the millions of seniors who depend on it for nourishment and companionship.”


Subaru is the largest automotive donor to Meals on Wheels America. Meals on Wheels America provides leadership to local, community-based programs dedicated to fighting hunger and isolation among our nation’s homebound seniors. Through our partnership with Meals on Wheels during the Share the Love Event, Subaru and our retailers have helped deliver more than 4.3 million meals and friendly visits to vulnerable seniors across America.  Over the last 15 years, Subaru of America and its participating retailers have donated more than $256 million to their charitable partners and supported over 2,100 hometown charities to help those in need. This year’s Subaru Share the Love Event is on track to bring that total to over $285 million, proving there’s no limit to the amount of love we can all share. 


By purchasing or leasing a new Subaru during the Subaru Share the Love Event and selecting Meals on Wheels as your charity of choice, you can help deliver nutritious meals and other important services to seniors right here in Douglas County.
