LIHUE — Dan Nanbu of Servco Kauai said they love animals.
Nanbu worked with Laura Lee, the development director for the Kauai Humane Society, toward the contribution of $5,000 from Subaru Hawaii Thursday morning at the new Servco Kauai building.
“Subaru Hawaii’s continued support of the Kauai Humane Society through the Share the Love program provides resources which we can immediately use to save the lives of animals that come to our shelter,” said Scott Pisani, Kauai Humane Society executive director. “It is a great way for Subaru Hawaii to positively impact the lives of pets in our island community.”
The presentation to the Kauai Humane Society was part of the $30,000 donated to local nonprofits as part of Subaru Hawaii’s Share the Love sales campaign that has been in effect for six years.
During the campaign, which started Nov. 1 and ended Dec. 31, Subaru Hawaii donated $250 for every new car sold, up to $30,000. The total is divided evenly between six nonprofits in Subaru’s focus areas of learning, animals and the environment.
This year’s recipient organizations included the Friends of the Library of Hawaii, Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii, the Hawaii Island Humane Society, the Hawaiian Humane Society, the Maui Humane Society and the Kauai Humane Society.
Subaru Hawaii also hosted an Instagram contest, #sharethelove808, which gave participants the chance to win a GoPro. Nelson Jacinto of the Big Island is the recipient of the GoPro.
“Our nonprofit beneficiaries are integral to our community,” said Glenn Inouye, Servco senior vice president. “It gives us great joy to support their work financially, and by raising awareness with our annual Share the Love sales event.”
Subaru Hawaii has been a staunch supporter of the Kauai Humane Society, Lee said.
“During our Dec. 3 adoption program, Subaru Hawaii paid for all of the animal adoptions that day,” Lee said. “That resulted in eight adoptions — a greater number than our average daily adoptions. They also were at the humane society in June when we had a promotion for cats, and in April, we had a ‘Fill the Subaru’ program at the Kauai Humane Society’s Fast and Furrious event. We appreciate all of the help they offer in addition to the Share the Love campaign.”
