Adventure Subaru this week donated more than $127,000 in total to two local nonprofits.
The Fayetteville-based dealership, along with Subaru of America, presented checks of $62,192 and $65,168 to Lighthouse Solutions and Single Parent Scholarship Fund of NWA at check presentation events held on Monday, April 24 at Adventure Subaru’s store location at 2269 N. Henbest Drive in Fayetteville.
The donations were raised are part of Subaru’s annual “Share the Love” event, an initiative which lets each customer who purchases or leases a new Subaru decide which of four national charities would receive a $250 donation from the company between Nov. 17, 2022, and Jan. 3, 2023. Adventure Subaru also matched the $250 donation from Subaru of America.
ASPCA, Make-A-Wish, Meals On Wheels Association of America, and National Park Foundation were the national charities selected by Subaru of America this year for their customers to choose from, and Adventure Subaru selected Light House Solutions and Single Parent Scholarship Fund to be their local recipients.
Fayetteville car-buyers once again overwhelmingly chose to support the local groups this year, resulting in the large donation amounts.
According to their website, Lighthouse Solutions is a nonprofit organization that helps “to improve the quality of life for children, teens, and families living in under-resourced communities of Northwest Arkansas.” Single Parent Scholarship Fund “help single parents in Northwest Arkansas create futures for their families by providing direct financial assistance, as well as supportive services for those who are pursuing higher education and live in Benton, Carroll, Madison, and Washington counties.”
Since its inception, the Share the Love program has resulted in over $256 million donated to local and national charities.
