Subaru of America hosted a special kickoff event to celebrate the return of the Subaru Share the Love Event, the automaker’s annual philanthropic event aimed at supporting charities across the country.
Employees at the Subaru of America headquarters in Camden, NJ partnered with the Food Bank of South Jersey to donate and pack a record-breaking number of “KidzPacks” containing items that can produce up to four nutritionally-balanced meals and snacks for children in the local Camden community.
The event resulted in more than 6,600 “KidzPacks” being donated; enough packs for impacted children to last an entire school year.
