Subaru of America 'Share the Love Event' Happening Now:  Through the 2017 Share the Love Event, from November 16, 2017, to January 2, 2018, Subaru of America will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased to the customer's choice of four national charities, including Meals on Wheels America, with a minimum guarantee of $250,000. Since 2008, the Share the Love Event has provided funding for 1.7 million meals to seniors nationwide and the Lake County Council on Aging has been the recipient of these valuable grants to provide meals for homebound Lake County seniors.

For more information on the Share the Love Event, please visit your local Subaru dealer, or Meals on Wheels America.

Walmart Foundation Awards Grant to LCCoA:  Walmart and the Walmart Foundation presented a $75,000 grant to the Lake County Council on Aging to support our efforts to deliver more than 15,300 meals over the next year to homebound seniors through our Meals on Wheels program.  The grant was made available through the Foundation's State Giving Council.  These funds will help supplement important federal dollars which continue to decrease, and along with our levy this fall, this donation helps us meet growing needs, specifically with our Meals on Wheels program.  Our sincere thanks to the Walmart Foundation for being such a powerful partner in our fight against senior hunger!  Press Release
