For the 5th year running, the Sayville Auto Dealer has Disignated the Community Hospital as the Local Charity for Subaru’s National Share the Love Event
Donaldsons Subaru, from Sayville, NY, recently presented a check for $33,150 to Long Island Community Hospital, Patchogue, NY, after naming them as a designated local charity of choice as part of their continued participation in the national Subaru “Share the Love” event. This is the fifth year in a row that Donaldsons Subaru has chosen the community hospital as the designee.
The well-promoted campaign lets buyers decide which of the dealer’s designated not-for-profits will receive $250 for the purchase of a new car over a select period of time.
“We are so grateful for the outpouring of support of our community,” states Long Island Community Hospital President and CEO, Richard T. Margulis, “We are especially thankful for the generosity of our good friends at Donaldsons Subaru through Share the Love, as well as their continued support of all of our signature fundraisers.”
“Through the Share the Love Event, Subaru of America and its participating retailers have donated more than $179 million to charity,” according to Steve Fulco, General Manager Sales Operations, “with customers choosing between four national and over 1,440 hometown charities.”
Over the five-year period, LI Community Hospital has been the recipient of over $179,000 as one of Donaldsons’ Share the Love hometown charities. “As a community hospital, we rely on the contributions of our long-time friends and supporters. As we come through this devastating pandemic, the Donaldsons Subaru family continues to devote their time and talent to raise much needed funds to support our hospital,” states Rachel Schnabl, LI Community Hospital Vice President and Chief Development Officer.
“COVID-19 has shown us all just how important a resource like Long Island Community Hospital is to this community,” says Donaldsons Subaru Owner and President David Donaldson. “This program not only allows us to support this vital resource, but allows us to give back to the community that has supported us for so many years.”
