Music Drives Us - The Gift of Music
The #1 Volume Subaru Dealer in New England, Manchester Subaru in Manchester, NH, has launched its newest fundraising campaign of 2015 supporting Ernie Boch Jr's Music Drives Us. Music Drives Us is a New England-based non-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to improving lives through the gift of music. The organization's mission is to support and preserve music programs that make a positive impact in the lives of our children and our community. Since its inception in 2006, Music Drives Us has been able to enhance the lives of people by donating over $1,000,000 to hundreds of organizations throughout the region.
This year Todd Berkowitz and Manchester Subaru will donate a portion of each car sold to the Music Drives Us Foundation. Together, the monies raised will directly support music programs in Manchester, NH and the surrounding community.
