It’s time to Share the Love all over again!
The 2018 Subaru Share the Love® Event is happening now. If you’re new to the Subaru family, you’re in luck: we’re giving you the inside scoop on the Share the Love Event, the national charitable partners, how you can participate and more!
What makes the Subaru Share the Love Event great?
Over the last 10 years, through the Share the Love Event, Subaru of America, Inc. and its participating retailers (like us!) have donated more than $118 million to charity, with customers choosing between four national and over 1,170 local charities. In this, our 11th year, we are on track to bring that total to over $140 million, proving there’s no limit to the amount of love we can all share.
Who did we select as our hometown charity?
Kendall Subaru is proud to have selected FOOD for Lane County as our hometown charity for the 2018 Share the Love Event! FOOD for Lane County is a nonprofit food bank dedicated to alleviating hunger in Lane County by creating access to food.

What are the four national charities?
For the 2018 Share the Love Event, Subaru of America has selected the following as its national charitable partners:
- A leading voice for animals for over 150 years, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®) provides life-saving protection and care to those in need. Whether it’s rescuing animals from abuse and neglect, introducing and enforcing more humane legislation or supporting animal shelters across the country, the ASPCA relies on donations and public support to help animals live better lives. Through the ASPCA, Share the Love has had a significant impact on the rescue, transport and adoption of more than 50,000 animals across the country.
- Research shows when children diagnosed with a critical illness are granted their one true wish, it gives them renewed strength and energy to keep fighting. Their families and entire communities come together. The impact from just one wish has the power to transform the lives of everyone involved. Through Make-A-Wish®, Share the Love has granted the wishes of more than 1,800 kids with life-threatening medical conditions.
- Meals on Wheels provides 2.4 million homebound seniors with the nutrition and companionship they need to age without fear of hunger and isolation. For these vulnerable seniors, the Meals on Wheels volunteer’s daily visit keeps them healthy, connected to their community and able to live independently in the place they love most: their home. Through Meals on Wheels, Share the Love has helped deliver nearly 2 million meals to America’s seniors.
- The National Park Foundation, in partnership with the National Park Service, enriches America’s national parks and programs, safeguarding our heritage and inspiring generations of national park enthusiasts. Through the National Park Foundation, Share the Love has provided funding for critical programs and projects in more than 100 national parks and helped increase public awareness and engagement across our national park system.
