Partnership with Subaru Share the Love® Event Pays Off for Local and National Charities
SAN JOSE, Calif. (May 7, 2018) – Del Grande Dealer Group (DGDG.com), the Bay Area’s largest family-owned automotive group, recently partnered with the Subaru Share the Love event to raise $32,000 for Make-A-Wish® Greater Bay Area, a non-profit organization that fulfills the wishes of children between the ages of 2 1/2 and 18 battling life-threatening medical conditions.
Held each year, Subaru donates $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased to a host of charitable partners, per the selection of each customer. This year’s four national charities included the ASPCA®, Make-A-Wish®, Meals on Wheels America and National Park Foundation. In addition, DGDG’s Capitol Subaru participated in the hometown charity matching donation program to support Make-A-Wish® Greater Bay Area.
“The Del Grande Dealer Group as a business and the Del Grande family truly believe that giving back and being a part of the community is extremely important,” said DGDG President Shaun Del Grande. “Being able to support amazing organizations like Make-A-Wish right here in our community is what we are all about at DGDG, we all want to make this a better place.”
Participating in the Subaru Share the Love Event to support Make-A-Wish® Greater Bay Area is just one of the many ways Del Grande Dealer Group gives back to the community through DGDG Does Good – Del Grande Does Good, the charitable arm of the DGDG dealership group. Through relationships and partnerships with charitable organizations, like Make-A-Wish, employees participate to help those in need year-round.
Additionally, last month, Capitol Subaru assisted Make-A-Wish® Greater Bay Area’s Wish Granters to fulfill the dream of 19-year-old Adeline,who is older than most wish recipients because her wish had been delayed due to illness complications. A trunk of a Subaru was opened to reveal a trip to Tokyo, Japan, a cake and other goodies for Adeline. She was completely surprised and grateful for the generosity.
