Local Charity Receives Check From Share the Love Campaign

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

A local charity receives a check thanks to Rimrock Subaru and the community. The check for Family Service, Inc., worth more than $6,500, was the result of Rimrock Subaru's Share the Love campaign. During the event, customers who bought or leased a car were able to designate $250 to the charity of their choice.

Ernie Lee with Rimrock Subaru says more than a third of customers chose the local charity out of a choice of 5 national charities and one local. Jane McCracken with family service says the money will go to the agency's food program for seniors. Jane says, "We will be buying non perishables to add to those boxes that we take to seniors homes and provide them the opportunity to have fresh food in their home to eat." Ernie Lee says about Family Service, "They make sure that when a family is in crisis they're there to help and we're here to help our community because if we make a better community it's healthier for all of us."

This was the first year Subaru allowed local dealerships to choose a hometown charity option.
