During the 2017 Share the Lov
e event, Subaru of America, Inc. donated $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased to the customer’s choice of one of four participating national charities, including Make-A-Wish.
Massachusetts and Rhode Island was thrilled to partner with local dealers Bertera Subaru of West Springfield
and Subaru of Wakefield
as part of the Subaru Share the Love
event to help grant even more life-changing wishes to children with critical illnesses. Both of these dealers chose Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island as their “Hometown Charity of Choice," which provided customers with the opportunity to designate their $250 donation to their local Make-A-Wish organization.
Bertera Subaru of West Springfield has selected our organization as its Hometown Charity for four years in a row, and the dealership generated over $64,000 this year alone for wishes - bringing its four-year total raised to over $227,000!
This year, we were thrilled that Subaru of Wakefield also selected us as its Hometown Charity and raised an impressive $40,000+!
“Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island and our wish families are sincerely grateful for the support of Bertera Subaru of West Springfield and Subaru of Wakefield,” said Charlotte Beattie, CEO of Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island. “This year alone, they have raised enough to grant eight transformational wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses.”
That's a lot of love! Thank you, Bertera Subaru of West Springfield and Subaru of Wakefield!
