Subaru donates delivery vehicle for Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels America

Subaru of America, Inc. donated a 2018 Subaru Outback to Coconino County Community Services Department in partnership with Meals on Wheels America, the only one donated in Arizona.

Coconino County Community Services drives 2,515 miles on average each month to deliver meals, and the donated Subaru will enable the staff and volunteers to reach 64 more seniors and serve 1344 more meals each month. The vehicle was presented to Coconino County today at Flagstaff Subaru during a special ceremony.

“The Meals on Wheels initiative in Coconino County is extremely important to our community and we appreciate the immense generosity of Subaru of America for recognizing that value,” said Chairwoman of the Board of Supervisors Liz Archuleta. “We appreciate the new Subaru Outback and look forward to using it to distribute food to county seniors.”

This fall, Subaru donated 50 new 2018 Subaru Outback vehicles to select Meals on Wheels programs throughout the country, to be used in the delivery of an estimated 53,000 meals to an additional 3,700 seniors across 39 states. Subaru has supported the national Meals on Wheels network for the last nine years through its annual philanthropic event, Share the Love, contributing more than $12 million to Meals on Wheels America and providing more than 1.7 million nutritious meals, friendly visits, and safety checks to seniors.

“Subaru’s ‘50 Cars for 50 Years’ vehicle donation will enable Meals on Wheels programs, like Coconino County Community Services, to expand its reach to many Coconino County seniors in need,” said Ellie Hollander, president and CEO, Meals on Wheels America. “This latest act of care and kindness further underscores Subaru of America’s longstanding commitment to giving back to communities large and small.”

The Subaru and Meals on Wheels partnership is part of Subaru Loves to Help. Each 2018 Subaru Outback donated will be delivered to local retailers and wrapped with Meals on Wheels America and ‘Subaru Loves to Help’ co-branding.
