Share the Love with Vulnerable Seniors This Year!
By DebraMcDonagh / November 20, 2019


Exciting news! 

For the 12th year running, the Meals on Wheels network is participating in the 2019 Subaru Share the Love Event. Over the past eleven years, Subaru and its retailers have helped Meals on Wheels to deliver more than 2.2 million meals nationwide to seniors in need.

Why does Subaru support Meals on Wheels? 

  • Too many seniors are struggling to stay independent and healthy. 
  • One in four seniors lives alone in isolation.
  • One in seven seniors might not know from where their next meal is coming. 

This is why the BayPath Elder Nutrition – Meals on Wheels program provides the nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks to the seniors MetroWest communities. This vital support keeps seniors in their own homes, where they want to be.

We’re incredibly grateful to Subaru and its Retailers, for supporting our organization and the seniors we serve. With that in mind, we thought you might want to learn a little bit more about the Subaru Share the Love Event.

Here is how it works.
This November 14, 2019, through January 2, 2020, for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased, Subaru will donate $250 to the customer’s choice of participating charities.* Meals on Wheels is one of four national participating charities and has been since the inception of the event. 

Through this event, as a member of Meals on Wheels America, BayPath Elder Services Elder Nutrition Program will receive a share of the donation from Subaru vehicles sold at participating Subaru Retailers, which includes MetroWest SubaruBayPath uses donations for emergency meal packs that provide homebound MetroWest Seniors with three days of sustainable meals in case of power outages!

You might not be in the market to purchase a new car, but if you are, please look into the Subaru Share the Love Event to learn more. 

If you’re not shopping for a new vehicle, you can still help by spreading the word to your family and friends. A few quick and easy ways to do that:

  • Share this blog post!
  • Share our posts about the Share the Love Event on Facebook:
  • You can also do this on Twitter (@BayPathElder).

And remember: this holiday season you can ensure our senior neighbors are not forgotten, when you purchase or lease a new Subaru and select Meals on Wheels as your charity of choice.
