Subaru donates Outback to Tabitha Meals on Wheels

Experiencing first-hand the difference a meal makes, the Duteau team Mike Minnick, Lynn Sunderman and Eric Klein along with Tabitha Foundation’s Heath Stukenholtz and Gina Cotton get ready to take the car out for its first round of meal deliveries.

Tabitha Meals on Wheels’ long-standing program has served up door-to-door compassion with hot nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks to the Lincoln community for over 50 years. In recognition of this lifeline service, Tabitha has been honored with a generous donation of a 2018 Subaru Outback from Subaru of America in partnership with Meals on Wheels America, both also celebrating their 50th anniversaries.

“Delivering food to 500-plus friends and neighbors throughout Lincoln who count on us each and every day is no small task,” shared Tabitha Chief Development Officer Heath Stukenholtz. “The donation of this Subaru means we have a safe vehicle to rely on as we make our rounds across the city. So much more than a meal, this program delivers independence and peace of mind. Tabitha Meals on Wheels is extremely grateful for this kind gift from Subaru of America, along with more than 1,000 devoted Tabitha Meals on Wheels volunteers who power this program.”

Subaru donated 50 new 2018 Subaru Outback vehicles to select Meals on Wheels programs throughout the country, to be used in the delivery of meals across 39 states. Subaru has supported the Meals on Wheels America network for the last nine years through its annual philanthropic event, Share the Love campaign.

“Subaru’s ‘50 Cars for 50 Years’” vehicle donation will enable Meals on Wheels programs, like Tabitha’s, to expand its reach to the city,” said Ellie Hollander, president and CEO, Meals on Wheels America. “This latest act of care and kindness further underscores Subaru of America’s longstanding commitment to giving back to communities large and small.”

The Subaru and Meals on Wheels partnership is part of Subaru Loves to Help, a pillar of the automaker’s larger Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment effort dedicated to making a positive impact on local communities across the country.
