BURLINGTON, WA NOVEMBER 12, 2018 – Dwayne Lane’s Skagit Subaru today announced its participation in the 2018 Subaru Share the Love® Event and selected Community Action of Skagit County as its hometown charity to be added to the list of organizations that customers can select to receive a Subaru Share the Love Event donation.
Tom Lane, owner of Dwayne Lane’s Skagit Subaru, said Community Action of Skagit County was chosen as the hometown charity because of the great work and services they provide to the community. “This organization strives to give people a hand up not just a hand out, working to alleviate poverty and help people attain a level of self-sufficiency, that’s amazing” Lane stated.
The Subaru Share the Love Event will run from November 15, 2018 to January 2, 2019 and allows Subaru retailers the opportunity to select charities operating in their community to be included in a list of organizations that new owners can select from to receive a $250 donation from Subaru of America, Inc. (SOA). For a third year in a row, there will be no cap on the total donation from SOA to its Subaru Share the Love Event charitable partners. At the culmination of this year, SOA and its retailers hope to exceed a grand total of $140 million donated since the creation of the Subaru Share the Love Event.
The eleventh-annual Subaru Share the Love Event will include the following four national charities:
Meals On Wheels America®

In addition to the national charities that are participating, Community Action of Skagit County will be included as a hometown charity for new Subaru owners to receive donations at the end of the event.
“Subaru of America, Inc. has had the immense pleasure of working with a host of national and local charities throughout the life of the Subaru Share the Love Event,” said Alan Bethke, senior vice president of Marketing at Subaru of America, Inc. “Now in its eleventh consecutive year, we look forward to continuing our support of the incredible causes and organizations our brand and our owners care most about, and witnessing how this year’s donations will positively impact the world around us.”
