Mid- Columbia Meals on Wheels has been chosen as 1 of 50 recipients in the nation to receive a new 2018 Subaru Outback. Please join us for the vehicle presentation to support our local Meals on Wheels.
Pasco, Washington October 23, 2017, – Several months ago Marcee Woffinden, Nutrition Services Director at Senior Life Resources – Mid-Columbia Meals on Wheels, submitted an application to receive 1 of 50 2018 Subaru Outback’s donated by Subaru of America. She proposed that the new Subaru would be used to increase meal deliveries in our rural area by having it take a different rural route each day of the week.
Subaru has supported Meals on Wheels for the last nine years through 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 in communities nationwide. Subaru announced the donation to its 630-strong retailer body at the company’s National Business Conference in Denver, CO. This was particularly appropriate as Subaru retailers participate in the company’s annual Share the Love event and donate to causes in their local community. The company’s ’50 Cars for 50 Years’ vehicle donation will enable Meals on Wheels programs to deliver more nutritious meals and moments of companionship, expanding its reach to seniors in need.
Mid-Columbia Meals on Wheels staff & board members, McCurley Integrity Subaru and Subaru of America will be on hand this Thursday to present the new Outback to the organization.“It will be the dealerships privilege to deliver the vehicle and help Meals on Wheels start their ownership experience off on the right foot” said Mason McCurley, President of McCurley Integrity Subaru. “We have had a long standing partnership supporting Senior Life Resources and look forward to again supporting the mission this year during the Share the Love event to be held in November and December”.
