Subaru Hawaii announces the return of its “Share the Love” sales event. The car dealerships will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold from Thursday-Dec. 31 to a group of local nonprofits: Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawaii, Hawaii Wildlife Fund, Oahu SPCA, SPCA Maui and the Hawaii Island Humane Society.
In addition to buying a Subaru during the promotional period, the public is encouraged to vote for their favorite participating nonprofit organization through Subaru Hawaii’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/SubaruHI. At the end of the sales event period, Subaru Hawaii will award the organization with the most “likes” an additional $5,000.
“We are delighted to partner with both our new and returning nonprofits for this year’s Share the Love sales event,” said Glenn Inouye, senior vice president of Servco, representing the Subaru Hawaii dealers. “This promotion is a win-win for our Subaru owners, customers and our local communities.”
In addition to its monetary donation, the Subaru Dealers of Hawaii invite the public to attend “Share the Love” day on Dec. 1, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Dealerships statewide will host events open to the public on behalf of Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawaii, Hawaii Wildlife Fund, Oahu SPCA, SPCA Maui and Hawaii Island Humane Society.
In conjunction, there will be the annual Adopt A Pet, Pet Food and Pet Care Supplies Drive.
The Oahu SCPA, SPCA Maui and Hawaii Island Humane Society will have dogs and kittens looking for loving homes. A $25 Petco gift card is included with every adoption and adoption fees are free for Subaru owners or for those who purchase a vehicle during the event.
The public is encouraged to “Share the Love” and stop by to donate pet care supplies such as bleach, cat litter, dish soap, paper towels, trash bags, old linens (towels, blankets and sheets), pet food and/or treats.
The Hawaii Wildlife Fund will have information about its wildlife adoptions program. The public is invited to “Share the Love” and contribute to the recovery of native marine life. A frameable certificate and turtle-friendly reusable bag are included with the adoption of a sea turtle, monk seal, whale or dolphin.
Big Brothers Big Sisters will have information about how to become a trained volunteer to provide one-on-one mentoring that is professionally supported by a case manager. The public is invited to “Share the Love” and positively change the life of keiki with the invaluable gift of friendship that has positive impact for youth in areas of academics, socio-emotional and behavioral outcomes, high school graduation rates, avoidance of juvenile delinquency and college or career readiness.
The events are open to the public and will take place on the Big Island at Kona Subaru in Kailua-Kona and at Hilo Subaru in Hilo.
