Lisa and her team do an incredible job providing a hand to the community in need” commented Mr. Alvine. “I’d also be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge all of the customers who bought or leased a new Subaru during the campaign, and, designated New Opportunities, Inc. as the charity of choice for their donation.
