In November 2017, Crews Subaru of Charleston presented East Cooper Meals on Wheels with a 2018 Subaru Outback as part of the annual Share the Love event, a national effort that donates to causes in the local community. The vehicle will be on display at Oysters in the Outback.

Guests will enjoy live music from The Sayer McShane Band while shucking oysters provided by The Noisy Oyster. Local chefs and organizations also will compete for top prize in the barbecue competition. Hot dogs, beer, wine and soft drinks are also included in the ticket price. Purchase tickets online at www.ecmow.org.
