Blankets and Craft Kits Delivered to Patients at Two Local Cancer Centers through Peacock Subaru Loves to Care Program in Support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
Public Wrote Messages of Hope for Packages
(HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC) Peacock Subaru once again partnered with Subaru of America and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to support cancer patients through the donation of blankets and craft kits at two Lowcountry cancer centers, Hilton Head/Bluffton Center Radiation Oncology and South Carolina Cancer Specialists on Hilton Head Island, both part of St. Joseph’s/Candler’s Nancy N. and J.C. Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion.
Blanket donations were given to adult cancer patients to keep warm during their chemotherapy treatments, and craft kits were delivered to children. Visitors to the Peacock Subaru dealership were given an opportunity to write a message of hope and encouragement to patients.
“This campaign adds a little warmth and comfort to the lives of those undergoing cancer treatment. Cancer treatment is financially stressful and can be lonely and isolating, too. That’s why we want these patients to know they are loved and cared for,” said Lauren Mathews with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Georgia Chapter.
This is the fourth year the three partners — Peacock Subaru, Subaru of America and the LLS — have worked together on the Loves to Care initiative. LLS and Subaru have reached more than 100,000 patients in nearly 700 hospitals, with the help of 500 Subaru retailers nationwide. This year, a record 542 Subaru dealerships participated.
Peacock Subaru participates in the larger campaign in a variety of ways, including its support the Palmetto Animal League, the Jasper Animal Rescue Mission, the Hilton Head Humane Association, and Volunteers in Medicine, in addition to its work with LLS.
“We are proud to do our part to fulfill the Subaru Love Promise, with its commitment to show love and respect to our customers and to improve our communities by working with various charities and nonprofits,” said Warner Peacock, Chairman and CEO of Peacock Automotive.
