Lee Subaru Selects Covenant Hospice as

Hometown Charity” for Share the Love Campaign

Fort Walton Beach, FL – On Thursday, Nov. 20 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., Lee Subaru and Cumulus Media will host a kick-off party for the 2014 Share the Love campaign, an annual national initiative of Subaru of America. The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held at Mango’s on the Bayou, 200 Eglin Parkway NE in Fort Walton Beach.

Share the Love allows each new Subaru owner who purchases or leases a Subaru during the campaign, which runs Nov. 20, 2014 through Jan. 2, 2015, to select a charity from a pre-determined list of non-profits with a national scope. That charity then receives a $250 donation from Subaru of America. This year, Lee Subaru of Fort Walton Beach has selected Covenant Hospice as their “Hometown Charity,” to be featured on the list of charitable organizations supported by Share the Love, giving new Subaru owners the option of selecting a local non-profit to benefit from the campaign.

In the last six years of the program, Subaru of America has donated $35 million to a number of charities through the Share the Love initiative. This year’s Share the Love program will deliver donations to the customer’s choice of:

  • ASPCA
  • Make-A-Wish
  • Meals on Wheels Association of America
  • National Park Foundation
  • Covenant Hospice

The kick-off party will celebrate the partnership between Lee Subaru, Cumulus Media, Mango’s on the Bayou and local beneficiary, Covenant Hospice, with food, beverages, live music and a number of “staycation” prize drawings including snorkeling tours, banana boat rides, laser tag experiences and scooter rentals.

Covenant Hospice is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing comprehensive, compassionate services to patients and loved ones during times of life-limiting illnesses. Initiatives such as Subaru’s Share the Love campaign help fund Covenant Hospice’s special programs in Okaloosa and Walton counties. These programs include bereavement services, children’s support programs, chaplain services and indigent patient care. Covenant Hospice accepts patients regardless of ability to pay. In 2013, the organization provided over $1.5 million in care for uninsured or under-insured patients facing a terminal illness.
