Continental Subaru Donates $43,000 to Catholic Social Services
Clare House and Charlie Elder House supported through “Share the Love” event
Anchorage — Subaru of America, Inc. (“SOA”) and Continental Subaru today presented a check for $28,000 to Clare House and $15,000 to Charlie Elder House. Both Catholic Social Services’ programs were a beneficiary in the 2015 Continental Subaru’s “Share the Love” event.
From Nov. 19, 2015 to Jan. 2, 2016, customers who purchased or leased a new Subaru vehicle could select from a list of charities to receive a donation of $250 from SOA. This year, Subaru of America, Inc. donated nearly $20 million to participating charities nationwide. Over the last eight years, SOA has donated close to $70 million to a number of worthy causes through the “Share the Love” event.
SOA selected the four national charities: ASPCA®, Make-A-Wish®, Meals on Wheels Association of America® and National Park Foundation. Continental Subaru elected to add two local charities and selected two Catholic Social Services’ organizations: Clare House and Charlie Elder House as its “hometown charities.”
Both checks were presented by Derek Adolf, Dealer Principle Continental Subaru and James Aikman, Subaru of America, and received by Catholic Social Services Executive Director Lisa Aquino.
“We’re overwhelmed by the amazing support of Alaskans and Continental Subaru to donate to our mission in providing help and compassionately serving those in need,” said Aquino. “These checks represent the chance for individuals and families to move out of homelessness and experience productive and fulfilling lives.”
