SUBARU OF CHERRY HILL DELIVERS SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. DONATION TO LOCAL CHARITY THE PHILADELPHIA RONALD MCDONLAD HOUSE AS PART OF THE 2015 SUBARU Share the Love EVENT

Philadelphia, PA April 6, 2016 - Subaru of America, Inc. ("SOA") and Subaru of Cherry Hill presented a check for $25,657.00 to the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House. The Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House was a beneficiary in the 2015 Subaru Share the Love event.

From November 19, 2015 to January 2, 2016, customers who purchased or leased a new Subaru vehicle could select from a list of charities to receive a donation of $250 from SOA.  This year, Subaru of America will donate up to $15 million to participating charities. Over the last seven years, SOA has donated $50 million to a number of worthy causes through the Share the Love event.

SOA selected four national charities: ASPCA®, Make-A-Wish®, Meals On Wheels America® and National Park Foundation. Subaru retailers could also elect to add a local charity and Subaru of Cherry Hill selected the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House as its “hometown charity.”

“We’re so grateful to have been selected as a beneficiary of the 2015 Share the Love campaign. It is strong partners in our community, like Subaru of Cherry Hill, that enable us to provide much needed comfort and hope to over 2,000 families of seriously ill children each year.”  - Susan Campbell, Executive Director, Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House.

The Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House supports families of seriously ill children by creating a community of comfort and hope. Their programs include two Ronald McDonald Houses and Ronald McDonald Camp as well as two Ronald McDonald Family Rooms and a Hospitality Kiosk at local hospitals.

In order to maximize the partnership a little further, Subaru of Cherry Hill also hosted a "Guest Chef Day" on December 27, 2015 at the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House in which eight volunteers from the dealership spent the morning making breakfast for the families and children who were staying at the House.  The spread included veggie strata, turkey sausage, bacon, french toast, pancakes, fruit salad, english muffins, and freshly made smoothies.  This was just another way that Subaru of Cherry Hill wanted to show support for their hometown charity during the Share the Love event.

The check for $25,657.00 was presented to the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House by Ziad Nashed, President of Subaru of Cherry Hill. The donation will go towards the day-to-day necessities at the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House that help keep the families comfortable while staying at the House.
