For the fourth year in a row, a partnership between East Cooper Meals on Wheels and Crews Subaru of Charleston has earned the nonprofit a grant to sustain its meal delivery programs.
As part of the annual “Share the Love” campaign, Subaru of America encourages its dealerships to partner with local Meals on Wheels organizations during the busy holiday season.
This year’s activities helped East Cooper Meals on Wheels earn a $4,000 grant.
In December, employees from Crews Subaru took time to pack and deliver meals on three routes, and they also hosted a “Stuff the Trunk” food drive that collected much-needed breakfast items for the pantry program at East Cooper Meals on Wheels.
Both the dealership and Meals on Wheels promoted the partnership through social media. The partnership extends beyond the annual campaign, as many Crews Subaru employees are now qualified to serve as substitute drivers on the nonprofit’s meal delivery routes.
