Share Some Love With Spectrum Generations!
The 2017 Subaru Share the Love Event is officially underway and as a member of Meals on Wheels America, Spectrum Generations is excited to announce that we will be taking part in this year’s event!
Meals on Wheels programs all across the country deliver the nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks that enable America’s seniors to live nourished lives with independence and dignity. But the holidays can be an especially difficult time for so many. FMI about how you can help Share the Love with local seniors, call Angela in the Waterville Area at 660-9263 or Lynda in the Hallowell area at 620-1187.
How does it work? Between now and January 2, 2018, Subaru of America, Inc. will donate $250 to a consumer’s choice of participating charities for every new Subaru vehicle leased or sold. Through this campaign, as a Member of Meals on Wheels America, Spectrum Generations will receive a share of the revenue earned in Maine. By purchasing or leasing a new Subaru during the Event and selecting Meals on Wheels America as your charity of choice, you can help deliver nutritious meals and other vital services to seniors’ right here in central or mid-coast Maine!

Not in the market for a new car but still want to help Share the Love?
The Cohen Community Center in Hallowell and the Muskie Community Center in Waterville have enlisted the help of several of Santa’s elves to create “Bags of Love” for our local Meals on Wheels consumers. The bags include items such as mittens, scarves, placemats, ornaments, lap quilts and candy canes, most items made by local organizations and groups that want to “share the love” and show that our homebound friends are thought and cared for. Special thanks to the Back Road
Quilters for the 230 + quilted place mats, Cohen’s own knitting and quilting group for the scarves, mittens, lap quilts, etc., local schools such as Manchester, Winthrop, Hallowell and Pittston Elementary for creating hand-made ornaments and for many Cohen volunteers that created bags to place the items in and to those that set up and donated items for our December Craft Fair in support of our Meals on Wheels program.
