Love for others, passion for community, selflessness, and caring hearts. It’s what the Osceola Council On Aging is all about. Even the COVID-19 pandemic couldn’t extinguish the Osceola Council on Aging’s mission to end senior hunger or the Meals on Wheels program’s focus on ensuring our community’s seniors aren’t left alone at home.

However, both organizations have felt the financial pressure that the pandemic has caused, making it necessary for them to rely on other organizations to partner with them in their causes.

The Osceola Council On Aging has announced a partnership with Subaru of America and Don Mealey Sport Subaru South in hosting a “Subaru Outback Car Raffle” to substitute the many fundraisers they have been unable to host in 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Having canceled several Osceola Council on Aging fundraisers this year, we are excited to partner with Don Mealey Sport Subaru South to supplement the financial funding needs of our senior population,” said Wendy Ford, Osceola Council on Aging President/CEO. “We are excited to announce that with this upcoming car raffle with Subaru, some lucky family will win a brand-new Subaru Outback.”

This is not the first time Don Mealey Sport Subaru South has supported the Council. They have helped deliver meals to Osceola County’s homebound seniors for many years. We are blessed to have so many generous local business partners like Subaru, who continue to support our Osceola senior population,” added Ford.

“Love. It’s What Makes a Subaru, a Subaru,” said Antonio DeViva, Don Mealey Automotive Group Marketing Director. “All of us here at Don Mealey Sport Subaru South want to do our part to help our community and empower the mission of Charities like Osceola Council on Aging.”

The winner of the OCOA Subaru Car Raffle will own a 2021 Subaru Outback with a beautifully designed interior, economical, safe on the road, and easy on the budget.
