Subaru donates new cars to nonprofit groups

Grand Junction Subaru and Subaru of America donated new vehicles to two nonprofit organizations as part of the Subaru Love Promise campaign.

Representatives from Grand Junction Subaru and Subaru of America presented 2018 Subaru Outbacks to Gray Gourmet and the National Ski Patrol.

“At Subaru we want to do all we can to help others,” said Ron Bubar, owner of Grand Junction Subaru. “We created the Love Promise campaign because we believe in making the world a better place, and we can do that by showing love and respect to all people. We are thrilled that these two great organizations will have new cars to drive while fulfilling their missions.”

A nutritional meal program for seniors sponsored by St. Mary’s Medical Center, Gray Gourmet provides 2,250 meals weekly.

“We are incredibly grateful to Subaru and Meals on Wheels America for this brand new Subaru. This car will help the program complete it’s mission of promoting the independence, health and well-being of the elderly in Mesa County through quality nutrition services,” said Amanda DeBock, Gray Gourmet program manager.

The National Ski Patrol operates the largest winter education organization in the world, providing education, outreach and credentialing related to outdoor recreation and safety.

“Subaru is one of the biggest partners we have. Without their support we wouldn’t be able to fulfill our mission to help keep people safe in the outdoors,” said Patrick Trimm, Rocky Mountain Division director of the National Ski Patrol.

Grand Junction Subaru is located at 651 Market Street near the intersection of Market Street and 24 Road. For more information, call 241-2414 or visit
