Subaru of America, in cooperation with Frederick Subaru, recently presented Hospice of Frederick County with a donation of $11,873. As part of their “Share the Love” event, Subaru donated $250 to Hospice for every new vehicle purchased or leased from Nov. 20, 2015, through Jan. 2 at Frederick Subaru.

“Subaru continues to support the community every day nationwide. One of the things I think is great, is that Subaru allows their dealers to work with local charities,” said Pat Blackwood, Frederick Subaru sales manager. “Frederick Subaru is more than happy to choose Hospice of Frederick County for our hometown charity. We know it is an organization that touches many lives, from the individual receiving the care, to the families involved.”

This is the second year Frederick Subaru chose Hospice as its hometown charity. “We are humbled that Subaru of America, Frederick Subaru, and area Subaru customers donated to Hospice of Frederick County through the Share the Love event,” said Laurel Cucchi, executive director of Hospice of Frederick County. “This most generous donation will be applied towards non-reimbursable costs at our Kline Hospice House. Families always tell us the house is a jewel in our community — bringing them comfort at the most difficult time in their lives. Donations like this make a place like Kline House possible, and when someone is measuring their time in days, each moment is priceless.”

Donations help offset the cost of patients unable to pay Kline House’s full room and board fee, offered on a sliding scale for those applicable.
