Twin City Subaru "Shares the Love" with the VT Foodbank

Twin City Subaru Share the Love

Subaru of America is to donate an estimated $17,000 to the Vermont Foodbank
, thanks to 70 owners who recently purchased new Subarus at Twin City Subaru.

The donation is the happy result of Subaru's 6th Annual Share the Love event, during which Subaru donates $250 to a charity of the customers' choice for each new Subaru sold or leased.

New Subaru owners from the 2013-2014 rendition had their pick of 5 national charities: the ASPCA, Teach for America, Meals on Wheels, Make-A-Wish, and National Parks, in addition to the dealer's unique local charity selection (Twin City chose the Vermont Foodbank). 
"We are quite proud and grateful to our community for coming together and helping us donate to feed hungry children and families in Vermont. The original goal was to reach $12,000. We weren't convinced that every customer would choose the [Vermont] Foodbank as their charity option.

But the power of local prevailed and over 99% of customers chose to pledge their $250 donation from Subaru to the Foodbank! It's truly amazing how Vermonters stand together and help each other." Twin City Subaru Owner Dave Birmingham said in response to Share the Love's success.

The Vermont Foodbank can distribute a whopping 51,000 local meals with this donation, as the non-profit can turn $1 into 3 meals.

"This event is a great example of what sets Subaru apart as an automaker," added Twin City Subaru Manager Chris Davis. "This donation comes entirely from Subaru - the $250 gift per Subaru sold is not coming out of raised prices, end-of-year gimmicks, or from the customer's pocket.

Subaru simply recognizes that our owners are cause- and community-minded, and lets them literally 'Share the Love' with the charities they feel are most deserving of Subaru's donation(s).

Extra points for letting dealerships choose a unique local charity option for the first time this year. Everyone can feel good about supporting a non-profit that does amazing work right here in Vermont."
