Organizers at the Portland Rose Festival were excited to announce that Subaru had been named the Title Sponsor of the 2023 Portland Rose Festival Fleet Week. As a part of the partnership, Subaru, Meals on Wheels People and The Portland Rose Festival came together to serve meals to local home-bound veterans.
On June 9 - amidst the backdrop of the Fleet Week events along Waterfront Park - seven local Subaru Dealers teamed up with Meals on Wheels People volunteers and The Portland Rose Festival Fleet Week Chairman, Peter Mack, to deliver meals to veterans throughout the greater Portland area.
"We're thrilled to have partnered with Meals on Wheels People and The Portland Rose Festival to serve meals to local veterans," said Chris Borquist (General Manager from Subaru of Portland) “And we're grateful for the opportunity to give back to our community as a part of Subaru’s Love Promise commitment."
