Maui Humane Society in the Running for Subaru Donation
Subaru Hawaii’s community-based “Share the Love” campaign, in which the dealership will donate $250 for each new 2015 or 2016 Subaru vehicle sold, up to $30,000 to six local nonprofit organizations, ends Dec. 31, 2015.
To sweeten the deal for the nonprofit partners, the public is encouraged to vote for their favorite participating nonprofit organization online. At the end of the campaign, Subaru will award the organization with the most votes an additional $5,000.
Subaru Hawaii’s “Share the Love” campaign has donated more than $100,000 to local nonprofit organizations in the past five years. This year, Subaru continues to extend partnerships to islands with Subaru dealerships on O‘ahu, Maui, Hawai‘i Island and Kaua‘i.
The nonprofit partners in the running are Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawaii, Hawaiian Humane Society, Hawaii Wildlife Fund, Kauai Humane Society, Maui Humane Society and Hawaii Island Humane Society (see details below).
“We are delighted to have such strong community partners join us in this year’s Subaru Hawaii “Share the Love” sales campaign,” said Glenn Inouye, senior vice president of Servco, representing the Subaru Hawaii Dealers. “In addition to again partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawaii, we’re also excited to again support Hawa‘ii’s natural wildlife and companion animal nonprofits, both areas of interest to many of our Subaru owners. We are proud to extend our partnership to all islands where we have dealerships, including O‘ahu, Maui, Big Island and Kaua‘i.”
