W and L Subaru raises more than $40K for Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital

W&L Subaru in Northumberland recently presented a check to Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital for the annual Subaru Share the Love event held from Nov. 14, 2019 to Jan. 2, 2020.
During the event, customers who purchased or leased a new Subaru could donate $250 to the children’s hospital or the charity of their choice. W&L personally matched donations to the children’s hospital as their hometown charity for the event. W&L also held a special event on Nov. 23 at the dealership, which included a live radio broadcast from KISS FM, holiday-themed dance routines by Karen Gronsky School of Dance, face painting and balloon making as well as a visit from Santa Claus and one of his reindeer.
The entire Share the Love event raised $40,103 for Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital. Donations from the campaign have been used to fund equipment, like transport incubators for Geisinger Life Flight. Donations have funded programs like the Child Life Department that helps to offer distractions and comfort for children while in the hospital. Funds have allowed for services such as Geisinger’s Child Advocacy Center (CAC) in Sunbury, which serves the children who are victims of child abuse throughout the area.
This year the Subaru Share the Love event will run from Nov. 19 to Jan. 4 at W&L Subaru, 535 Point Township Drive, Northumberland.
