Fairway Subaru has announced that it has chosen Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Carolinas for its annual Share the Love Event this holiday season.

From Nov. 14 through Jan. 2, 2020, Fairway Subaru will donate $250 to RMHC of the Carolinas for each new Subaru car purchased or leased by customers.

“Ronald McDonald House does tremendously important work in our Upstate community, and we are thrilled to support their mission,” said Foster McKissick IV, president of Fairway Subaru. “The Share the Love Event really gives customers the opportunity to support a local cause in the community they live in and help others during the holiday season.”

McKissick said the work Ronald McDonald House does by keeping families close to their sick children is critically important.

“We are honored to have been chosen by Fairway Subaru for this amazing event,” said Marti Spencer, CEO and executive director of Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Carolinas. “It is through local companies like Fairway Subaru that we are able to offer a home of hope for hundreds of families each year, keeping them close to their sick child.”

The Ronald McDonald House, located on Grove Road, opened in 1989. Since that time, it has served close to 13,000 families from the Carolinas and beyond whose children are receiving treatment at nearby medical facilities. On June 21, 2018, a 17,000 square-foot expansion added an additional 12 guest rooms, a larger kitchen, extra common areas, more laundry services and an expanded guest check in space. Today, RMHC of the Carolinas is able to serve 24 families at a time.
