April 13, 2017: We raised $13,835 for Mobile Meals of Spartanburg during the Subaru Share the Love Event! 

The Subaru Share the Love Event has been around for almost a decade now. From mid-November to early January, new Subaru customers can select one of five charities for Subaru to donate $250 from their purchase to. In recent years, Subaru started allowing the dealers to choose a local charity to add to the list of charity options.

Vic Bailey Subaru chose Mobile Meals of Spartanburg as its local charity. The dealership delivers meals every Thursday morning. Vic Bailey III serves on the organization's Council of Friends and his daughter, Leslie Bailey Calicutt, has served on the Board of Directors since 2012. Vic Bailey Subaru is the Presenting Sponsor of the Hub City Hog Fest, a barbecue festival in downtown Spartanburg benefiting Mobile Meals of Spartanburg.

The dealership is passionate about supporting Mobile Meals of Spartanburg because the organization delivers over 1,500 warm, nutritious meals to homebound Spartanburg County citizens each week day. Mobile Meals of Spartanburg does not receive any government funding so the support of its donors and success of its fundraising events are crucial.

Supporting Mobile Meals of Spartanburg lines up well with the national Subaru Share the Love Event since Meals on Wheels of America is one of the national charities customers can select from. Subaru also supports ASPCA, Make-a-Wish, and the National Park Foundation. The 2016-2017 Subaru Share the Love Event raised a total of $23.4 million for national and local charities. Since the first Subaru Share the Love Event, Subaru has donated more than $94 million!

September 1, 2016: Through the Subaru Loves Learning initiative, it is Subaru's goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible. Bronx Charter School students Amma and Julia wanted to help make their school cafeteria more sustainable. But they quickly noticed a problem-students didn't care about the issue, because they weren't seeing the effect of their actions. So the girls reached out to fellow solution seekers, Subaru and Google, to create a Virtual Reality Landfill, allowing students to see the full impact of their waste habits without ever having to leave the classroom. Watch, and see why you're never too young to make a difference. Go to www.subaru.com/loves-learning#Google-Expeditions to learn more about Subaru's commitment to education
