Carr Subaru in Beaverton is a long-time community supporter of the Providence Center for Medically Fragile Children through Subaru’s “Share the Love” campaign. For the past seven years, Carr Subaru has donated to the Bill’s Kids Fund, which benefits children and young adult residents at the center.
Named for Portland celebrity Bill Schonely, the retired play-by-play announcer for the Portland Trail Blazers and an emeritus board member of Providence Children’s Health Foundation, the fund has raised nearly $650,000 for CMFC, including $62,400 in the 2020 “Share the Love” year-end event.
Carr Subaru customers can select which organization to support when they buy or lease a car this holiday season, now through Jan. 3. When they do, $250 will be donated in their name to the charity of their choice. CMFC is one of the charities that Carr Subaru supports.
“Share the Love” gifts to Bill’s Kids Fund at Providence will support round-the-clock care at the center for young people with significant disabilities and complex medical needs.
“We are honored to support the residents of the Center for Medically Fragile Children,” said Brad Preble, president of Carr Auto Group. “Our customers are enthusiastic supporters of Subaru’s ‘Share the Love’ campaign, which raises money to support important community organizations, such as Providence Child Center. The center improves the lives of children with special needs and their families. We are proud to help such a worthy organization for so many years.”
“The Center for Medically Fragile Children is blessed with many community supporters, including the very generous Carr Subaru and its customers,” said JoAnn Vance, executive director of Providence Children’s Developmental Health. “We are deeply grateful for Carr Subaru’s support. Their gifts make a difference in the lives of our young residents and their families.”
During the past 13 years, Subaru of America and its participating retailers have donated more than $176 million to help those in need.
