Northtown Subaru, Subaru of America “SHARE THE LOVE” with WCHOB
Northtown Subaru and Subaru of America teamed up to once again “SHARE THE LOVE”with patients and families at Women & Children’s Hospital with a donation of more than $86,000, one of the top ten donations in the national promotion.
A 3-month sales promotion enables Subaru retailers across the country to offer new car buyers a chance to select a special charity in their local community to receive a $250 donation from Subaru of America.
Local and national leadership gathered at the site of the new Oishei Children’s Hospital on May 18 to present Allegra Jaros, President, Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo with the check and to tour the new facility where they saw for the first time a room named in their honor.
During the past four years, Subaru of America has donated $24,811,191 to worthy cause across the country through the “SHARE THE LOVE” campaign.
According to Subaru of America president and CEO, Thomas J. Doll, "Giving back to the communities in which we live and work is important to all of us at Subaru of America. Being part of such a historic moment in Buffalo, New York by helping to build a brand new children’s hospital speaks volumes about our partnership with Northtown (Subaru) Automotive Companies and the amazing philanthropic spirit of our community.”
“We are privileged to be the recipient of nearly $150,000 from Northtown Subaru during the past four years,” said Allegra C. Jaros, MBA, President, Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo. “As we head to the finish line and the November opening, we reflect on the steadfast support of companies like Northtown and the Schreiber family who have given us a solid foundation on which to build this new hospital. We’re proud to recognize this amazing generosity with a room dedicated in the name of Northtown Subaru.”
The historic $270 million Oishei Children’s Hospital is scheduled to open in November 2017 and will be an integral part of the medical campus, linking with Buffalo General, the Gates Vascular Institute, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, the new University at Buffalo Medical School and more. With 12 floors and 185 beds, the modern facility will allow the hospital to maintain its status as one of only 43 free-standing children’s hospitals in the nation – and the only one of its kind in New York State.
