Subaru shares the love with Assistance League

Issue 20, Volume 18.

TEMECULA – For every new Subaru sold, Subaru of America donates $250 to one of five charities, with the choice being made by the buyer. This year’s program ran from November 21, 2013 to January 2, 2014. In addition, Subaru opened up the opportunity for individual Subaru stores to select a unique local sixth charity that works within their local community.

"When Subaru announced that we could choose a local charity to be added to the Share the Love event, we did not have to even think hard about it. Assistance League of Temecula Valley was our first and only choice," said Bill Brumbaugh, vice president/GM of John Hine Temecula Subaru. "They have spent the last 25 years helping those less fortunate achieve a better, more meaningful life. We are proud to have such a wonderful, caring and hard-working organization right here in Temecula."

participating charities. The Subaru Share the Love event was founded five years ago but for the first time a local charity could be added to the list.

John Hine, owner of John Hine Temecula Subaru Mazda, and Bill Brumbaugh recently presented Assistance League incoming president Sue Sampson and current president Dorcas Shaktman with two checks totaling $3,000. One check was the proceeds from the Share the Love event and the other was a donation from John Hine.

"We are very excited and so appreciative of the support," said Shaktman. "This is a perfect example of how businesses and volunteers can work together to provide for those in need."

Assistance League is a 501(c)(3) volunteer organization serving the families of Southwest Riverside County for 25 years. Revenue from the Assistance League Thrift Shop, 28720 Via Montezuma, Temecula, is the main source of funding for their philanthropic programs.
