Local dealership gives big check to charity

ALBUQUERQUE (KASA) – Sharing the love. It’s something that the Galles & Davis Subaru dealership in Albuquerque has given a whole new meaning to with a very big check to charity.

That local charity, the Art Has Heart Foundation, received the funds in an event last Friday, giving many young people the chance to further their educations.

Some students looking to the Art Has Heart Foundation for a helping hand in paying for college have Subaru customers to thank for funding.

“Every customer that bought a Subaru from us between Thanksgiving and the first of the year, Subaru of America contributed $250,”:said Lawton Davis. “So you can see $17,600 – that’s a sizeable amount of customers.”

To give a perspective of how much love Subaru has shared over the years, it comes out to $35 million.

For the last two decades or so, artist Amado Pena and his wife J.B. Pena’s Art Has Heart Foundation has been making it possible for young people to continue their higher education through fundraisers.

In being selected as the sixth charity by Galles & Davis Subaru from the Share the Love event, the money is set to go a long way.
