RAMSEY SUBARU ANNOUNCES $12,000 IN DONATIONS TO LOCAL CHARITIES
Ramsey Subaru officially concluded their holiday sales drive by donating $12,000 to six Central Iowa charities. The locally owned dealership donated $200 for every car that was purchased or leased over the holidays. Organizations that benefited from the fundraiser included: The Special Olympics of Iowa, Youth Emergency Services and Shelter (YESS), Pet Project Midwest, Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity, WesleyLife Meals on Wheels and Make-A-Wish Foundation Iowa. Ramsey also donated 117 meals to WesleyLife Meals on Wheels; one for every test drive that took place during that period. Donations climbed from last year when the dealership donated $7,700 to local charities.
Ramsey's efforts served as a bonus to the nationally recognized sales event Subaru offers annually. For the fifth year in a row, Subaru has celebrated the holidays with the "Share The Love" event. Founded on the understanding that Subaru owners have always given back to the community, the company donates $250 to a charity of the customer's choice for every car sold or leased through January. Customers were able to choose from the following national organizations: Alzheimer's Association, The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Meals on Wheels Association of America, or the United Service Organization (USO). The company has given away approximately $5 million each year, bringing their anticipated national contribution to $25 million by January 2nd.
"The holidays provide all of us an opportunity to reflect on the past year and count our blessings," explains Ramsey Subaru's Tom Carey. "Our employees take great pride in participating in the Subaru 'Share the Love' event and we are very excited to go above and beyond the national efforts as we partner with our customers to support six worthy charities here in the Greater Des Moines Metro area," he adds.
