Senior Services of Alexandria (SSA) and Beyer Subaru Alexandria are partnering again for the 10th annual “Share the Love” Campaign to support Meals on Wheels. Subaru named Meals on Wheels America as one of four national Share the Love charitable partners supported through the promotion that runs until Jan. 2, 2018. SSA was selected again as the hometown charity to raise awareness around senior hunger in Alexandria.
“Senior Services of Alexandria is honored to partner with Beyer Subaru Alexandria as the hometown charity for the 2017 Share the Love Campaign, said Mary Lee Anderson, SSA's executive director. We intend to raise the awareness of the importance of the program for homebound seniors, and of volunteering to ensure seniors continue to receive meals 365 a year.”
During the campaign, Beyer Subaru will donate $250 to the customer’s choice of participating charities including Senior Services for every new Subaru sold or leased. The dealership is also sponsoring a “Share the Love, Share the Warmth” new blanket drive for Alexandria’s homebound Meals on Wheels recipients. With the donation of a new blanket, Subaru customers can get a $10 discount off repairs.
“Beyer Subaru is thrilled to be partnering with Senior Services again for the Share the Love Campaign this Holiday Season,” said Jordy Coho, general manager of Beyer Subaru Alexandria. ”Senior Services is an exemplary organization and we are grateful to be just a small part of what they do. For more details on the Share the Love and Share the Warmth Campaigns, please see www.BeyerSubaru.com.”
Another aspect of the Share the Love Campaign is to encourage volunteerism. SSA’s volunteers deliver meals every day of the year. This is a wonderful way to give back and make a difference in a senior’s life.
