Lawrence Subaru-Pack the Outback and Celebration of Wishes Event

Last December, Lawrence Subaru in Hanover, PA, celebrated the holiday season with local wish kids and families.

Lawrence Subaru has been a long-time proud supporter of Make-A-Wish® Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia. From November 17th through December 8th, Lawrence Subaru held their first-ever Pack the Outback campaign, a toy drive dedicated to donating toys to children living with life-threatening medical conditions. With the help of the Hanover community and volunteers, the Outback was packed with tons of toys for girls and boys, ages two and up.

The Pack the Outback campaign was followed by Lawrence Subaru's Celebration of Wishes, a party just for wish kids and their families to enjoy. Wish families along with local businesses, volunteers and Subaru employees participated in holiday festivities and kid-friendly games. We cannot begin to thank Lawrence Subaru enough for all the hard work they do to spread strength, hope and joy to our wish families. 

We would also like to thank Loving Memories Photography & Design, LLC for capturing these moments.
