Matt Slap Subaru Sponsors Delaware Nature Society's Clean Water Campaign


For the seventh annual Subaru Share the Love Event, Matt Slap Subaru chose Girls on the Run Delaware as our hometown charity. From November 20th, 2014 to January 2nd, 2015 customers that purchased or leased a new Subaru vehicle could choose from five national charities that included the ASPCA, Make a Wish Foundation, Meals on Wheels, National Parks Foundation or our hometown charity Girls on the Run Delaware to receive a donation of $250 from Subaru. 

On March 11th, 2015 our owner, Eve Slap visited Thurgood Marshall Elementary School in Newark, DE to present a check to Girls on the Run Delaware for $6,977.00 that was raised during the six week Subaru Share the Love Event. The money raised for Girls on the Run Delaware will be used towards scholarships for girls for their 2015 spring and fall curriculums and events. 

Girls on the Run Delaware is a local non-profit organization that delivers life-changing character development programs for girls in 3rd through 8th grades. Their mission is to inspire girls to be healthy and confident by using a fun experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running. 

Since the organization was founded in 2005, Girls on the Run Delaware has hosted 741 different teams and served 10,057 girls. In 2014 alone the organization was powered by 506 volunteer coaches who dedicated 27,830 hours to the program. It has emerged as one of the most effective Positive Youth Development Programs for girls in the state of Delaware.
