Many seniors are struggling to stay independent and healthy. One in four seniors lives alone in isolation and one in seven seniors might not know from where their next meal is coming. To help alleviate these challenges, Springwell provides nutritious meals, friendly visits, and safety checks to the seniors in Belmont, Brookline, Needham, Newton, Watertown, Wellesley, and Weston. This vital support keeps seniors in their own homes, where they want to be.

Today, Nathan White, General Manager of CitySide Subaru joined the Springwell staff at the Belmont distribution site to lend a hand loading meals in cars for delivery and to hand out meals and greet seniors who participate in the “grab and go” meals program that is currently offered instead of community dining due to COVID precautions.

CitySide Subaru of Belmont supports Springwell in their efforts to serve older adults in our community. Nathan White, General Manager of CitySide Subaru notes that “in our conversations with our customers, we often hear stories from people who could benefit from Springwell’s services. At Cityside Subaru, we are proud to be a part of such a strong community, and happy to support Springwell as our local Meals on Wheels partner for the Share the Love Event during this extraordinary year.”  Springwell provides over 800 meals daily and has safely continued delivering meals throughout the COVID pandemic.

Through the Subaru Share the Love® Event, from November 19, 2020, to January 4, 2021, Subaru of America is donating $250 for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased to the customer’s choice of the four national charities, including Meals on Wheels. Locally, CitySide Subaru has partnered with Springwell to support Meals on Wheels.

You might not be in the market to purchase a new car, but if you are, please look into the Subaru Share the Love Event to learn more. If you’re not shopping for a new vehicle, you can still help by spreading the word to your family and friends.  Learn more about Springwell’s home delivered meals program here.
