Glanzmann Subaru Helps Dozens of Families Take a Break From Cancer!
“SHARE THE LOVE” WITH GLANZMANN SUBARU HELPS DOZENS OF LOCAL FAMILIES TAKE A BREAK FROM CANCER
PHILADELPHIA – May 13, 2016 – During their Share the Love Event from Nov. 19, 2015 to Jan.2, 2016, Subaru donated $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased to the customer’s choice of five national non-profit organizations. In addition to the five national organizations, Subaru retailers have the opportunity to add a sixth local charity for customers to support. Glanzmann Subaru in Jenkintown, PA has supported For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation (FPS) for the past 3 years.
This year, Glanzmann Subaru customers raised $35,583 for FPS! Since the inception of this partnership in 2013, Glanzmann Subaru has contributed over $75,000 to help local families take a break from cancer.
For sixteen years, For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation (FPS) has been dedicated to improving the lives of families battling cancer by providing respite vacations to adult cancer patients (ages 24-55) and their loved ones in beautiful settings. Since its inception, FPS has partnered with over 325 oncology professionals to serve 6,100 patients and their families by providing respites to Florida, the Poconos, West Virginia, the Jersey Shore, the Carolinas, Maine and the Caribbean. Upon the patients’ return, FPS continues to provide ancillary support to patients and their families as their battle with cancer persists.
“We have been honored to partner with For Pete’s Sake for our Share the Love event over the past 3 years. We chose FPS because their mission matches so well with our goals of “Sharing the Love” and that is exactly what this partnership has done… Shared the Love by raising over $70,000 over the past 3 years and directly impacting the lives of cancer patients and their families by giving them a break from dealing with the horrors of this disease,” said Jeff Glanzmann, General Manager at Glanzmann Subaru.
FPS was established by Marci Bossow Schankweiler in 1999 in memory of her husband, Peter R. Bossow, Jr., whose heroic fifteen-month battle with cancer ended on September 1, 1999. FPS enables adult cancer patients and their families the opportunity to strengthen, deepen and unify their relationships by creating unforgettable and lasting respite vacations.
