As part of its commitment to “Share the Love,” Findlay Subaru-Prescott gave the Yavapai Humane Society (YHS) a check for $21,116 April 12.
During the ceremony, David “Mac” Macfarlane, Subaru general manager, said, “This contribution represents the long-term commitment Subaru has to supporting worthy charitable organizations in the communities it serves.
“In this case, for every new car sold, Subaru sets aside $250 from the purchase price, adds another $50, and asks the buyers to select a charity where they feel the money should go. During this last fundraising event — November 2021 through January 3, 2022 — buyers selected the Yavapai Humane Society.”
Kirk McClish, YHS executive director, said, “This significant gift will be used to pay some of the expenses we have for rehabilitating and renovating the building we bought from the City of Prescott that adjoined our headquarters at 1625 Sundog Road.”
McClish said this coming year will be the 50th anniversary of the YHS. “Just during the past year, we have cared for more than 3,000 dogs, cats, horses and other animals,” he said.
Macfarlane said that since the “Share the Love” effort began in the United States in 2007, Subaru has given away more than $27 million.
