Patrick Subaru of Shrewsbury went above and beyond with the 2018 Share the Love event. Each winter participating Subaru dealerships across America “Share the Love” by donating a portion of sales to a local charity. Why Me was chosen as one of two charities for Patrick Subaru support this year, raising a record $40,738.
“We were so excited to partner with Why Me & Sherry’s House for our annual Share the Love event, because they are a truly important and reputable charity.” said Michelle Bourget, Marketing Coordinator at Patrick Subaru. “I personally didn’t realize how vast the volume of ways that Why Me helped families was, nor the amount of thoughtfulness they put into making sure that these children and their families are taken care of in as many ways as possible.”
In addition to the financial donation, staff of Patrick Subaru have been donating their time. Service department staff came to the house to help with this year’s annual appeal. While at Sherry’s House helping stuff our annual mass mailing they noticed that there was not a television in the game room and decided to donate one. Their thought was that if this is a game room for teens there needed to be a television to play video games on or watch sports while playing pool.
Employees have been sprucing up the play room with new paper cranes and brightening the outside with colorful planted flowers. Bourget went on to say “Working with the staff at Why Me has been a true pleasure. They are thoughtful, kind and genuine. All of us at Patrick Subaru are looking forward to a continued friendship with these wonderful people!”
We are thankful for the support we have received from Patrick Subaru, they continue to go the extra mile for Why Me.
