Peacock Subaru Donates $4,875 to Greater Bluffton Jasper County Volunteers in Medicine


 
Peacock Subaru has donated $4,875 to Greater Bluffton Jasper County Volunteers in Medicine as part of the annual Subaru Share the Love event.

The funds were raised during November and December 2018. Each Subaru buyer could decide whether to donate a portion of the purchase price to a national charity or Peacock Subaru's hometown nonprofit, the local chapter of Volunteers In Medicine.

With the dedicated service of volunteer physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals, the Bluffton Jasper Volunteers in Medicine (VIM) provides care to friends and neighbors in Bluffton and Jasper County who are without medical insurance. Bluffton-Jasper County Volunteers in Medicine is one of more than 90 independent clinics under the guidance of the National Volunteers in Medicine Alliance.

"It's donations like these that give us the freedom to stop worrying about how we can do it and to start focusing on the people who need it," said Dennis Toney, director of development for Bluffton Jasper County VIM. "We have outstanding nurses and physicians who donate their time and expertise, but it's imperative that we have the financial assistance to make a difference, and Peacock Subaru just made that possible."

The donation will go toward the daily operations of the organization, which is run by approximately 75 volunteers.

"We chose Bluffton Jasper County VIM as our designated hometown charity this year because of the impact they're making in our local community," said Ken Kirby, general manager of Peacock Subaru. "This annual event not only allows our dealership to give back, but it allows our customers to participate in the act of giving."
