West Herr Subaru recently “shared the love” with Meals on Wheels for WNY. As part of the popular year-end “share the love” campaign, in 2013 local dealers had the opportunity to add a local charity to the list of organizations to which purchasers could designate a donation. And West Herr Subaru selected Meals on Wheels for WNY.
On March 13, 2014, representatives from Subaru of America and West Herr Subaru presented Meals on Wheels for WNY with a check for $17,424.95, which represents more than 3,100 meals for the homebound in our community.
“It means a lot to people to know that the donations we are making are going to work in the local community,” Charles Hardy, General Sales Manager, West Herr Subaru, and Meals on Wheels Foundation of WNY board member, said. “And helping homebound, isolated individuals fulfill their basic needs and live with independence is a very easy mission for the community to embrace.”
“We are more grateful than we can say to the West Herr owners, Chuck, the West Herr sales team, and the WNYers who’ve purchased new cars and selected Meals on Wheels as their charity of choice,” Tara A. Ellis, President and CEO, Meals on Wheels for WNY, said.
“We all want to age gracefully with our memories, dignity, and independence as we get older,” Scott Bieler, President, West Herr Auto Group, said. “Meals on Wheels for WNY helps make that possible with their medically appropriate meals, friendly visits and well-being checks. I’m so proud that the support of West Herr and the Subaru Share the Love campaign helps Meals on Wheels close its annual funding gap, making it possible for them to fulfill their mission and to continue serving meals to the homebound seniors and disabled individuals in our community all year long.”
