SSSEVA’s Meals on Wheels Program Receives Donation from Subaru
Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia (SSSEVA) received $7,328.73 by participating in the 2017-2018 Subaru Share the Love Event, held from Nov. 16, 2017 through Jan. 2, 2018.
The donation will go toward SSSEVA’s Meals on Wheels program, which provides fresh and nutritious home-delivered meals to residents over the age of 60 in the Southeastern Virginia region. The Subaru Share the Love event donates $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased to a customer’s choice of charities, and raised a total of $21.8 million in donations from this year’s event.
Joyce Riddick, a participant at one of SSSEVA’s senior center wellness and nutrition sites in Chesapeake, shares the key she decorated for the Share the Love Event. For this activity, seniors were asked to write their names and decorate the page showing how the Meals on Wheels program has been key to helping them live independently and with diginity in their own homes and communities.
