The Subaru Share the Love Event runs November 14, 2019 - January 2, 2020. For every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased during the event, purchasers can designate one of four participating charities to receive a $250 donation from Subaru, including Make-A-Wish. Last year alone, Subaru and its customers donated more than $3.6 million to Make-A-Wish through the campaign!
We're pleased to once again be the Hometown Charity for Bertera Subaru of West Springfield and Subaru of Wakefield this year. This gives you the opportunity to designate your Share the Love donation directly to Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island!
And, both dealerships will be hosting special Make-A-Wish toy drives!
Bring a new, unwrapped toy, gift card, or travel-related item to give joy to wish children:

Toy drive donations will be used by Make-A-Wish volunteers when they visit wish children (ages 2.5-18) to begin their wish experience. As more than 70% of our wishes are travel wishes, items that relate to travel are of highest need. Below are some suggested items.
