As part of Subaru’s 2020 Share the Love Campaign, Schaller Subaru donated $7,675 to Klingberg Family Centers. This money will impact the programs that serve thousands of children and family members in our region.
Schaller Subaru chose to partner with Klingberg Family Centers for the thirteenth annual Subaru “Share the Love” national campaign, during which Subaru pledges to donate $250 to a charity with every new Subaru purchase or lease. The Share the Love event ran from November 14, 2020 until January 4, 2021. The buyer of a new car was able to choose the local charity or a national charity.
“Although this year was more challenging due to the pandemic, we are glad to support the fine work of Klingberg Family Centers again,” said Art Schaller, Jr., President of Schaller Auto World. “I am especially proud that some of the money is from our employees who personally donated to the work done for children in our community.” Schaller continued, “As a family business ourselves, we care about keeping families in our community together and have long admired the work that Klingberg does for children and families.”
Mark Johnson, Vice President of Development at Klingberg Family Centers, says, “Our relationship with the Schaller family goes back many years. Schaller Auto World is a longtime sponsor of the Klingberg Vintage Motorcar Series, which raises money to support children and families.”
