Local Company Presents Check to Shriner’s Hospital
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) – The Shriner’s Hospital for Children received a big donation Thursday.
Bertera Subaru presented a check for nearly $9,000 as part of Subaru of America’s ‘Share the Love’ program.
Customers who bought a new vehicle could choose from a list of charities of who they want to receive a $250 donation. There were five national organizations in addition to the local Shriner’s Hospitals.
“Out of six of them, they were definitely choosing the Shriners’, especially the local people. I’ve heard stories from the customers about when they brought their children to Shriners and they were more than happy to donate,” said Jon Kubik, sales manager of Bertera Subaru in West Springfield.
Kubik said they are very proud to help the hospital with this donation in order to give the children the medical attention they need.
