Subaru of America’s 12th annual “Share the Love Event” supports Chicago’s seniors
CHICAGO, June 25, 2020 – CJE SeniorLife’s CJE’s Home-Delivered Meals program (HDM) is proud to announce it has received a $4,462.97 grant from Meals on Wheels America for participating in Subaru of America’s Share the Love Event. During the event, held from November 14, 2019 to January 2, 2020, Subaru of America, Inc. donated $250 for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased to the customer’s choice of participating charities, including Meals on Wheels America, of which CJE is a member.
Through social media and local outreach, CJE supported Meals on Wheels America as one of Subaru’s longstanding chosen charitable partners. CJE also collaborated with local retailer Evanston Subaru in Skokie to deliver meals to clients in Evanston and Skokie. Meals on Wheels America supports local, community-based senior nutrition programs like HDM to ensure that no senior is hungry or alone. Each donation helps to deliver the nutritious meals, friendly visits, and safety checks that enable America’s seniors to live nourished lives with independence and dignity.
“Each year, support from Meals on Wheels America is critical to maintaining this safety-net service for CJE’s most vulnerable clients,” said Leon Greenberg, Manager, Home-Delivered Meals/Kosher To Go. “Thanks to this generous grant, CJE’s Home-Delivered Meals program will be able to serve more local seniors in need through meal delivery and well-being checks, especially important during these challenging times due to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
If you would like help support CJE’s Home-Delivered Meals program, please consider making a donation to serve even more older adults in the greater Chicago community.
Since 1972, CJE SeniorLife has enhanced the lives of older adults and their families through an innovative, comprehensive network that includes life enrichment programs, supportive resources, healthcare, research and education.
