Subaru Share the Love


A Community Unites to Bring Happy Holidays to the Home Bound

Our community was asked to donate gifts so that Meals on Wheels of Sarasota could deliver holiday presents along with heart-healthy meals to residents who are physically or mentally impaired and unable to shop, prepare, or visit a food pantry for meals. We were delighted with the results, but needed help collecting the gifts. Sunset Subaru came to the rescue! They provided a vehicle to pick up donations at local businesses. Tim Reeher (left) sales manager at Sunset Subaru, met with MOW executive director Marjorie Broughton, and arranged the use of a vehicle. Sales associate Mark Lees (right) volunteered to drive the new Subaru Ascent to pick up donated gifts.

We are grateful to them and to the businesses that collected gifts for our clients: Michael Saunders and Company; Bank of America; U.S. Trust; Merrill Lynch; Tarpon Point Nursing & Rehabilitation Center; Sarasota Magazine; Sarasota County's Supervisor of Elections, Tax Collectors and Clerk of Courts Offices; Sarasota Magazine; and Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP
