Share the Love
Help us Share the Love this holiday season
You can help us provide the nutritious meals, friendly visits, and safety checks that enable seniors to continue living nourished lives in their own homes.
The Subaru Share the Love Event has made a huge impact in the lives of seniors. Over the past eleven years, Subaru and its participating retailers have donated more than $145 million to help those in need. Here’s how it works: Through January 2, 2020, for every new Subaru vehicle leased or sold, Subaru will donate $250 to the customer’s choice of participating charities. Meals on Wheels America is one of four national participating charities, and has been since the inception of the Event. And through this campaign, as a Member of Meals on Wheels America, Berks Encore will receive a share of the revenue earned in Pennsylvania. If you’re in the market for a new car, please look into the Share the Love event and choose Meals on Wheels as your charity when you purchase your new Subaru.
Become a Meals on Wheels Angel
Berks Encore provides our Meals on Wheels consumers with holiday gifts. The agency is asking for individuals and businesses to donate gifts for clients throughout the county. Items like gift cards, non-perishable food items, everyday household items and cleaning products are some of the things our clients need the most. We encourage school and church groups as well as Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops to create handmade cards and greetings for distribution to the county’s seniors. A Meals on Wheels route or area can be “adopted” via this program; confirm your participation with Lori by December 1. Donations will be accepted until December 13; please contact Lori Smith for more information at 610-374-3195, x220.

For every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased through January 2, 2020, Subaru will donate $250 to the purchaser’s choice of participating charities. Since its inception, Share the Love has helped deliver more than 2.2 million meals to seniors served by Meals on Wheels!
