OCO’s home delivered meal program has partnered with Meals on Wheels Association of America to participate in Subaru’s Share the Love event that serves to raise awareness and funds for Meals on Wheels programs throughout the country.

Now through January 3, Subaru will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased to the customer’s choice of the four national charities.

In addition to these partners, Subaru retailers have selected more than 660 hometown charities for their customers to support as well.

As part of this year’s Share the Love event OCO Nutrition Services is offering special activities and events at its Dining and Activity Centers and is collecting non-perishable food items in the lobby of OCO’s main office, 239 Oneida St. in Fulton; its kitchen site at 5871 Scenic Ave. in Mexico; and each of its six Dining and Activity Centers.

All food donations will be used to fill the shelves of its food pantry and the Blizzard Bags that provide emergency food supplies for snow-bound seniors.
