Look Back: 2016 Share the Love With the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank (Updated)

Editor’s note: This post was originally published on 5/19/16 and has been updated for accuracy and comprehension.

2018 was another successful year of our Share the Love campaign.

During this event, we give $250 to the Akron-Canton Food Bank for every Subaru we sell.

Did you know that $140 million dollars has been donated to charity over the past 11 years by Subaru and its retailers?

We also give back to the local community by partnering with:

  • The ASPCA.

  • The Make-A-Wish Foundation.

  • Meals on Wheels.

  • National Park Foundation.

If you’re interested in donating to any of these worthy organizations, get in touch with Serra Subaru.

In 2017, we were able to donate over $35,000!

Let’s take a look back at what our 2016 Share the Love campaign looked like.

For the second consecutive year, Park Subaru chose the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank to be the recipient of its Share the Love Campaign.

General Manager/Vice President Tom Flory and Sales Manager Mike Walker presented Shelly Hinton (VP Marketing and Fund Development) and Leslie Genovese (Senior Manager, Major Partners and Corporate Relationships) with a check in the amount of $27,920, bringing the two year total to over $41,000.

For over 30 years, the Foodbank has provided food and other essential items to members of the community in need of a helping hand.

The Foodbank member programs operate close to 500 food pantries, hot meal sites, shelters and other hunger-relief programs. Sales Manager Mike Walker said that he is proud to work for a company that helps support the Foodbank and the vital role it plays in feeding those in need.

You’re also paying it forward any time you purchase a new Subaru vehicle.

Not only are you supporting the economy by buying a car that’s made with locally-manufactured parts, you’re also helping Subaru to Share the Love.
