Nonprofits to benefit during Subaru ‘Share the Love’

MEDIA RELEASE

Subaru Hawaii once again is including a nonprofit from Hawaii Island in the fourth annual “Share the Love” sales campaign.

Subaru Hawaii will donate $250 for each new 2014 or 2015 Subaru vehicle sold through Dec. 31, 2014 to the Hawaii Island Humane Society, as well as, a group of Hawaii nonprofits: Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawaii, Hawaii Wildlife Fund, Hawaiian Humane Society, Maui Humane Society, and Kauai Humane Society.

In addition to raising funds for the nonprofit partners, the “Share the Love” sales campaign helps each local charity get its message out to the community.

“The educational outreach opportunities we gratefully receive from Subaru Hawaii’s Share the Love program helps Hawaii Island Humane Society step up efforts to educate our community on the importance of pet spay and neuter, animal adoption, humane education and humane treatment. Share the Love helps us fulfill our mission,” said Hawaii Island Humane Society executive director Donna Whitaker.

To sweeten the deal for the nonprofit partners, the public is encouraged to vote for their favorite participating nonprofit organization at Subaru Hawaii’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/SubaruHI starting November 1. At the end of the campaign, Subaru Hawaii will award the organization with the most “votes” an additional $5,000.

“We’re excited to participate in Subaru Hawaii’s Share the Love event once again,” said Whitaker. “The support we receive through Subaru Hawaii’s Share the Love program helps us communicate our island’s pet overpopulation problem and that spay and neuter can prevent more homeless pets. Share the Love offers many pets a second chance at finding a loving home.”

For the past four years Subaru Hawaii has partnered with Hawaii nonprofits donating more than $100,000 through the Subaru Hawaii’s “Share the Love” sales campaign. The partnership has helped build a strong sense of community with Subaru owners. The “Share the Love” sales campaign allows owners to combine two things they love, their Subaru vehicle and their community.

“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, Servco representing the Subaru Hawaii Dealers. “In addition to again partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawaii, we’re also excited to support Hawaii’s natural wildlife and companion animal nonprofits, both areas of interest to many of our Subaru owners. And this year, our partnership extends to all islands where we have dealerships, including Oahu, Maui, the Big Island and Kauai.”

Subaru Hawaii sells vehicles across a network of five dealership locations statewide – Big Island Subaru – Hilo and Kona; Servco Subaru Maui in Kahului, Maui; Servco Subaru Kauai in Lihue, Kauai; and Servco Subaru – Honolulu and Kaimuki on Oahu. Subaru is the only automotive manufacturer to receive the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) Top Safety Picks for all models for the past five years.
