Myers Auto Group’s three Florida Subaru stores, Subaru North Orlando, Subaru Lakeland, and Subaru South Tampa, announce partnership with the Florida Wildlife Corridor Foundation for the Subaru Share the Love Hometown Charity program to join in a collective effort for a sustainable future.
September 12, 2023 — Subaru North Orlando, Subaru Lakeland, and Subaru South Tampa of Myers Auto Group has announced Florida Wildlife Corridor Foundation (FWCF) as their Share the Love Hometown Charity. The organization, which is based out of St. Petersburg, Florida, strives to protect The Florida Wildlife Corridor, a statewide network of close to 18 million acres comprised of connected land and water that supports the local ecosystem. Through programming such as expeditions, art, exhibits, and more, FWCF raises awareness towards issues that threaten the Corridor and opportunities for keeping it connected.
During the Share the Love event, customers select one of five charities at the time of their purchase, and Subaru donates $250 per new car sold to their choice. But that’s not all, if the customer chooses Florida Wildlife Corridor Foundation at any of the three Myers Subaru stores, the dealership will match that donation. The Subaru Love Promise is composed of five core pillars representing areas the company hopes to initiate positive change: Environment, Health, Education, Pets, and Community. Subaru has been involved with several initiatives related to environmental protection since the 90s, and recent projects include a partnership with TerraCycle® that has led to over 8 million items that would have ended up in landfills being recycled instead.
These three Subaru dealerships are looking forward to further promoting the mission of the Corridor Foundation and highlighting the importance of sustainability through donations and event participation. During the Florida Wildlife Corridor Foundation Summit, Corridor Connect, held later this month from September 26-28th at Caribe Royale Orlando, the three Subaru stores will be officially announcing their Share the Love Hometown Charity.
“It’s an honor that the Myers Auto Group selected the Florida Wildlife Corridor Foundation as Subaru’s Share the Love partner this year, a brand that exemplifies a deep commitment to our planet’s well-being,” said Corridor Foundation CEO Mallory Dimmitt. “With Subaru’s unwavering support during this campaign and at our upcoming Corridor Connect summit, we are driving change and demonstrating that when passionate organizations come together, the future of our state becomes brighter.”
During Corridor Connect, local leaders in business, ecology, and government will join together to engage in productive conversation surrounding Florida’s environmental sustainability and economic growth. This is an opportunity for networking, solution-building, and for various groups to build relationships across industries and further the success of the state as a whole by developing post-summit actionable plans and solutions.
All Subaru employees from event Sustainability Sponsors Subaru Lakeland, Subaru South Tampa, and Subaru North Orlando will be donating their time to furthering awareness of the Corridor Foundation mission by working the event and providing TerraCycle recycling bins along with ecologically friendly drinking receptacles.
The dealerships will also participate in classes and on-site field trips including Prowl Under I-4, a chance to explore the newly completed I-4 wildlife crossing, Journey into the Last Green Thread, a tour of a part of the Corridor located in the center of Walt Disney World, and Explore Landscapes for Living, where attendees will visit over 27,000 acres of a living laboratory working on solutions that merge ecology and economy in the face of mounting development pressure.
“People can sometimes forget that every part of our lives depends on the natural environment around us, and we’re lucky to have such great resources here in Florida.” said Matt Adkins, COO of Myers Auto Group. “As a native Floridian, who has seen the changes to our beloved state, I’m happy to be a part of an organization that is helping to give back to the Earth and remind our community to do what they can to take care of nature.”
As the stores embark on this inspiring collaboration, they strive to underscore the importance of responsible environmental stewardship and inspire others to join the journey towards a greener, more sustainable future for all of Florida.
