Press Release

Subaru has announced that the company generated $5 million for charities in its third annual “Share the Love” event. From November of last year through early January of this year, Subaru donated $250 for every new vehicle sold or leased. Customers could designate one of five nonprofit organizations to receive the funds, ranging from youth mentoring to environmental protection. The Share the Love event has generated nearly $15 million in donations over the last three years.

Sprint is the only American wireless carrier named to the Environmental Protection Agency’s national Green Power Partners List. The purchase of wind-power energy helped the company secure its Number 19 ranking on the EPA’s Top 50 list. Wind power proves more than 90 percent of the electric needs for Sprint’s headquarters in Overland Park, Kansas. Sprint is also incorporating other alternative energy solutions as solar, hydrogen fuel cells, and geothermal power across its business operations
