Subaru Share the Love® Event Enables Life-Changing Wishes for Children Battling Critical Illnesses

Press Release — Irvine, CA (November 14, 2019) – Beginning today through Jan. 2, 2020, Subaru of America, Inc. will give consumers the opportunity to grant transformational wishes for children battling critical illnesses by electing to donate to Make-A-Wish® after purchasing or leasing a new Subaru vehicle.

As part of the twelfth Subaru Share the Love® Event, between Nov. 14, 2019 and Jan. 2, 2020, Subaru will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased to the customer’s choice of participating national charities, including Make-A-Wish. This year will be the fourth consecutive year there will be no cap placed on the total donation from Subaru to Make-A-Wish and other Subaru Share the Love Event charitable partners.

“We are thrilled for the return of Subaru’s Share The Love® Event and honored to be selected as the hometown charity by DCH Subaru of Riverside,” said Gloria Jetter Crockett, President & CEO of Make-A-Wish Orange County and the Inland Empire. “Last year, we were able to grant 360 wishes in the Orange County and Inland Empire region. But for every child who has a wish granted, another child does not. Right now, children are waiting for their wishes to be granted – and these wishes need partners like Subaru and the generous people of Orange County and the Inland Empire.”

Since becoming a national charity partner beneficiary in 2011, Make-A-Wish has received a total of more than $20 million in donations through the Subaru Share the Love Event. These funds have allowed more than 2,200 children nationwide to replace fear with confidence, anxiety with hope and sadness with joy due to the powerful impact of a wish come true.

This year, 15 Make-A-Wish chapters across 22 Subaru retailer locations have been chosen as hometown charities, to which customers will be able to direct their support. Locally, DCH Subaru of Riverside selected Make-A-Wish Orange County and the Inland Empire for its hometown charity and will match Subaru of America’s donation to the chapter.
