The Wood County Committee on Aging, Inc. (WCCOA) 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 Nov. 21, 2013 and Jan. 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.
"The money will go directly to the mission of making sure no senior goes hungry," said Angie Bradford, WCCOA's director of food service.
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.
WCCOA has partnered with the Yark and Lariche dealerships 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.
