Online Staff Report
Napleton Subaru will present a $6,000 check to the Rockford Rescue Mission during a ceremony at its Rockford dealership Thursday, March 20.
The donation is part of Subaru’s annual “Share the Love” event. During the event, Napleton set aside $250 from every Subaru sold or leased between last November and January 2014 for a local charity.
“This is the first year they’ve allowed us to choose a local charity to donate to,” Bruce Fitz, of Napleton, said.
Staff will present the check at 11 a.m.
In the past four years, Subaru has donated more than $35 million to charities across the nation. Dealerships have delivered donations to ASPCA, Make-A-Wish, Meals on Wheels Association of America, National Park Foundation and Teach for America.
Napleton Subaru is part of Napleton of Rockford, 505 N. Perryville Road.
