LAFAYETTE, La. - Dreams Come True of Louisiana, an organization dedicated to making dreams a reality for Louisiana children with life-threatening illnesses, received a $20,000 donation from Giles Automotive and Subaru of America. The donation by Giles and Subaru is an annual contribution to help Dreams Come True of Louisiana continue granting dreams for more and more kids in Louisiana.

As a part of The Subaru Share the Love Event, started in 2008, Subaru of America donated $250 per car purchased or leased from November 19, 2020, through January 4, 2021, to hometown charities in their dealership's communities as well as major charitable organizations across the country.

We do our very best to lend a helping hand locally and globally in any way we can, whenever we can, and I encourage everyone to get out there and Give Back however they can. Dreams Come True of Louisiana is an amazing group of people giving amazing gifts to children, and they deserve every bit of support we can give them."
