In addition to the national charities that are participating, Boys & Girls Club of Evansville will be gifted a donation check with money raised from new Subaru owners at the end of the program.
“Subaru of America, Inc. and our local retailers have always been passionate about giving back and making the world a better place- not because it’s good for business, but because it’s the right thing to do,” said Thomas J. Doll, president and chief operating officer, Subaru of America, Inc. “In the eighth year of the ‘Share the Love’ program, we are thrilled to once again be supporting tremendous charities that our customers believe in.”
