Spartanburg, SC – In partnership with LLS, Subaru of America and 616 Subaru retailers will deliver warm blankets, arts and crafts kits, and handwritten messages of hope to patients bravely fighting cancer. By the end of the year, Subaru and its retailers will have delivered more than 230,000 blankets and thousands of messages of hope directly to patients. Additionally, during June 2022’s Subaru Loves to Care month, Subaru of America, the largest automotive donor to LLS, is matching online gifts to LLS.org dollar-for-dollar up to $250,000 in total.
On June 28th, Vic Bailey Subaru and The South Carolina Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society delivered 80 blankets and messages of hope to patients at Gibbs Cancer Center. Patients battling blood cancer are in the fight of their lives. Every three minutes in the U.S. a new person joins those diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma. The recovery is long and often leaves patients feeling weak, cold and isolated. The donation of blankets and messages of encouragement from Vic Bailey Subaru is intended to provide hope and warmth, as well as show support for blood cancer patients in the Upstate.
