Cost covered by donation from John Kennedy Subaru/Subaru of America
Colonial's Free Summer Meals Program has been made possible by a donation from John Kennedy Subaru and Subaru of America, Inc., through the Colonial School District Education Foundation. The $18,390 donation was part of Subaru of America's national Share the Love event. Between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day, customers who bought a car could select one option from a small group of local and national charities to receive a donation from Subaru. The total reflects more than 50 people who purchased a car at John Kennedy Subaru during that time, plus a $5,500 donation from the dealership.
"To us, it's about helping the community where we're based. We've been tied to the schools for some time and donated books to the elementary schools," said Anthony Barone, General Manager of John Kennedy Subaru. "When we heard that the donation would be going toward the summer meals program, we were thrilled. It's important to give back locally."
