FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Webster, MA — Subaru of America Inc. (“SOA”) and Long Subaru presented a check for $20,002 to the Boys and Girls Club of Webster-Dudley. The Boys and Girls Club of Webster-Dudley was a local beneficiary in the 2017 Subaru Share the Love event.
The Boys and Girls Club of Webster-Dudley is a non-profit, compassionate organization dedicated to offering a variety of recreational, educational, and cultural activities for local kids, as well as to provide experiences which give opportunities for choice, individual achievement, development of self-confidence and fun.
"The generous donation made by Long Subaru and Subaru of America is tremendous, the generosity is beyond our wildest dreams and the funds donated will go to support continual programs such as Passport To Manhood, Smart Girls, and the Street Smarts. All programs focus on drug, alcohol prevention, and academic success,” said Lamel Moore, Executive Director, Boys and Girls Club of Webster-Dudley.
Long Subaru has been recognized for a strong dedication to their community and has notably received the Subaru Love Promise Customer & Community Commitment Award for 2018. Only elite Subaru retailers who exhibit remarkable dedication to both pillars of the Love Promise — exceptional service to their customers and extraordinary work in their communities — can earn this prestigious award.
“The heart of our dealership is reflected in our commitment to our community. The Share the Love event has been a huge year end focus for us during the ten years it has been available,” said Scott Barry, Dealer Principal, Long Subaru. “We have been working closely with the Boys and Girls Club of Webster-Dudley for several years and we’re honored to be able to do our part to help them out. Teaming with SOA during this event is a great privilege and results in bringing much needed funds to our local community.”
From November 16, 2017 to January 2, 2018, customers who purchased or leased a new Subaru vehicle could select from a list of charities to receive a donation from SOA. SOA selected the four national charities: ASPCA®, Make-a-Wish®, Meals on Wheels America, and National Park Foundation. Subaru retailers could also elect to add a local charity and Long Subaru selected the Boys and Girls Club of Webster-Dudley as its hometown charity adding a $50 per vehicle match. For a second year in a row, there was no cap on the total donation from Subaru of America to its Share the Love charitable partners.
The check for $20,002 was presented by Scott Barry, Dealer Principal, Long Subaru and Joe Altavilla, District Sales Manager, Subaru of New England and was accepted by Lamel Moore, Executive Director, BGCWD and Gerald Fels on behalf of the Boys and Girls Club of Webster-Dudley.
