Representatives from the Kelberman Center and Carbone Auto Group recently gathered for a check presentation of over $26,000 to the Kelberman Center. The donation was the result of the annual Subaru Share the Love event. Over the last 12 years, through the Share the Love Event, Subaru of America and its participating retailers have donated more than $176 million to charity, with customers choosing between four national and over 1,200 hometown charities. The Kelberman Center is the local charity selected by Carbone Subaru as part of this national campaign.
Tara Costello, Kelberman Center Executive Director, thanked Carbone Subaru for their continued support through the Share the Love Event. Costello stated, “This significant gift to the Kelberman Center is testament to how committed the Carbone family is to our community and to ensuring that kids and adults with autism spectrum disorder receive opportunities for success throughout their lives.”
