“I’ve watched Subaru for a long time and they’ve gotten involved in all local charities, and I think it’s out of this world, I appreciate it.I own a Subaru, I like what they do,” says Charlie Garrett, Cancer Patient.

The donation of blankets is part of the company’s Subaru Loves to Care program.

Nationwide, the company has now delivered more than 100,000 blankets to cancer patients across the country.
