John Hine Temecula Subaru recently presented a check for $48,251 to Assistance League of Temecula Valley during the “Subaru Share the Love Event”, which ran from November 19, 2020 thru January 2, 2021.
“This is the 13th year John Hine Temecula Subaru has had the opportunity to take part in this wonderful Subaru Campaign” said Tim Anderson, General Manager, John Hine Temecula Subaru. “Since 2007, our first year in the Temecula Valley, with the help of our loyal Hine customers, we’ve donated over $214,250 that directly help families and children in need right here in the Temecula Valley. Assistance League has been such a fantastic partner and we are looking forward to an exciting year in 2022.”
Assistance League is a nonprofit service organization of volunteers committed to identifying and serving the needs of the Temecula, Murrieta, Menifee, Lake Elsinore, Wildomar and Romoland communities through philanthropic programs developed and administered by its members. Operation School Bell, its main philanthropic program, identifies low-income school children (K-12) in the five school districts within their service area. Because of COVID restrictions, the program is collaborating with its partners for referrals for families most in need in their communities (Menifee Valley Community Cupboard, Community Mission of Hope, HOPE Food Pantry, Community Food Pantry of Murrieta). School counselors in the Murrieta and Lake Elsinore School Districts are also providing additional referrals. This fiscal year, 2020/2021, Operation School Bell provided 500+ low-income students with brand new school clothing and shoes.
“We are truly appreciative of the continuing support of John Hine Temecula Subaru,” said Electra Demos, Assistance League Past President/Community Ambassador. “The funds received from the Share the Love Event will enable Assistance League to reach out to more children and families in need.”
Over the last 13 years, through the Subaru Share the Love Event, Subaru of America Inc. and its participating retailers have donated more than $200 million to charity, with customers choosing between four national and over 1,440 hometown charities.
Assistance League Thrift Shop, 28720 Via Montezuma, Temecula, is the main fundraiser. Last year, chapter members volunteered over 31,000 hours of community service on behalf of local families in need.
