McDowell County, WV  -- McDowell County Commission on Aging is proud to announce it has partnered with HomeTown Subaru this holiday season to bring awareness to the need of the Meals on Wheels program.  This local effort is part of the Meals On Wheels Association of America's (MOWAA) participation in the national Subaru of America, Inc. "Share the Love" Event.  

Lisa Sanderson, Executive Director remarks "We are thankful for the awareness HomeTown Subaru has brought to the Meals on Wheels program.  We have many seniors on the waiting list for this vital service which helps them to remain independent and stay in their own home.  Mike Karr of HomeTown Subaru helped delivered meals as well as food for their pets to homebound seniors during the months of November and December."

Mike Karr affirms "As a volunteer at the McDowell County Commission on Aging I've seen firsthand the positive effect the Meals on Wheels program has on not only the clients but also staff and extended community.  It's heart-warming to see the excitement when Meals on Wheels arrives and in as much as the clients are happy to receive the hot meals, I see that it is also the conversations and continuation of relationships built by the staff that leave such a positive impact on the community."

As one of the five Subaru "Share the Love" Event charitable partners, the Meals On Wheels Association of America (MOWAA) is awarding $200,000 in "Share the Love" grants to local Meals On Wheels programs that partner with Subaru dealerships in the fight to end senior hunger.  McDowell County Commission on Aging is eligible to win a MOWAA-Subaru "Share the Love" grant of up to $35,000 to help provide nutritious meals to homebound seniors in McDowell County.

"We are honored to be part of ‘Share the Love' for a fifth straight year," said MOWAA Interim CEO, Larry J. Tomayko.  "Subaru recognizes the importance of giving back to the communities it serves. Working together, MOWAA and Subaru are helping to provide more than just a meal; we're bringing warmth and compassion to so many hungry and homebound seniors who would otherwise go without."

The Subaru "Share the Love" Event ran from November 21, 2012 to January 2, 2013.   Subaru donated $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased during "Share the Love" to the customer's choice of one of five charities, including MOWAA. Over the past four years, proceeds from the Subaru "Share the Love" Event have provided funds to MOWAA to support its vision to end senior hunger by 2020.
