Subaru and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Spread Hope and Warmth to Cancer Patients Nationwide

 

Subaru of America and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) are both organizations that are committed to positively impacting the communities they’re a part of, and for the fourth consecutive year these two organizations have partnered to send hope, love, and warmth to patients fighting cancer. The two organizations hope to achieve a new record in participation and donations during the 2019 Subaru Loves to Care month in June.

 

Subaru and LLS will deliver blankets and messages of hope with arts & crafts kits to cancer patients and their families in communities across the country. Over the past three years through Subaru Loves to Care LLS and Subaru have reached more than 100,000 patients in nearly 700 hospitals all with the help of 500 Subaru dealers nationwide.

 

“At Subaru, we are passionate about showing love and respect to all who interact with our brand through the Subaru Love Promise and meaningful partnerships with organizations like The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society,” said Thomas J. Doll, President and CEO, Subaru of America, Inc. “This year, I am honored to take on the role of Light The Night Corporate Walk Chair for the New Jersey Chapter of LLS. Our goal is to accelerate corporate support and help this annual fundraising event have an even greater impact, in order to move closer to a world without blood cancers.”

 

Throughout June, Subaru and LLS will bring the Subaru Loves to Care initiative to life at a record 542 Subaru dealers nationwide. Visitors to participating dealerships will be given the opportunity to write personal messages of support to patients in their local communities, and anyone can send an online message at www.lls.org/subaru.

 

At the end of the month the participating Subaru retailers will partner with local LLS chapters across the county to deliver more than 43,000 blankets and 9,500 arts and crafts kits as well as the messages of hope written by customers to those fighting cancer in hospitals and treatment centers across the country.

 

According to Dr. Louis J. DeGennaro, president and CEO, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, “LLS was founded by a family for families 70 years ago, and we are closer than ever to cures. Curing cancer takes collaboration. It requires all of us, together. Working with Subaru, it is our combined dedication and heart that is helping to bring us to the ultimate frontier: cures for families today, and for generations to come.”
