Little Angels Service Dogs - Melody N

Our new friends from the "Little Angels Service Dogs" based out of Bartlett, NH, made a visit to our North Attleboro location. (They heard about our love for dogs.) We are all familiar with dogs that assist people who are visually impaired, but these canines are trained for additional skills. Thru scent and their keen sense of smell they alert their owner who may be diabetic, or an epileptic, that they are on the cusp of having a seizure. With 10-15 minutes warning time, the owner can take preventative measures, medication, or contact caregivers. It is quite amazing. Long story short, Development Director Melody Nester and Executive Director Josh Drew came down with one of their dogs, “Nellie”, to share their story and detail their program. We had announcements on social media, and flyers in the showroom. That day, we went into the service waiting area and invited in all of those customers. Josh made a nice presentation and then took a lot of great questions. The Patriot Automotive Group followed up with a donation of $1800 to Little Angels. We appreciate their efforts, and all the good that it does to help people with special needs.

Cars For Community - Patriot S

The first annual Patriot Subaru North Attleboro "Cars For Community" Event was held Sunday, May 23rd 2021, at the New England Wireless and Steam Museum, East Greenwich, RI. Over 60 amazing cars and trucks were on display, from classics to contemporary, luxury to exotic, sports, antiques, and muscle! In addition, we raised $2000 for the Museum! The idea started on Patriot General Manager Mark Perryman's weekly radio show on WPOR AM. "You Auto Know" is a one hour broadcast that discusses everything about the automotive world. A fan of the show, Randy Snow, is also the President of the Wireless and Steam Museum. They connected on-air, and the idea to do a car show was hatched. Restrictions for Covid had been lifted, the timing was right. With less than a month to prepare, the word went out to the car collector's community. We did not charge for space, and we did not charge the public to come and enjoy, it was all free. We did ask for donations for the Museum, which had been closed for over a year due to the pandemic. It all came together, on a hot, sunny day - everyone thrilled to get out and participate. The Museum is located on a fairly quiet country road, a wonderful spot. Many visitors were local residents who said - We've lived here for years, and never knew the Museum was here! Between the cars, the weather, great food from area food trucks, and a big raffle courtesy of Patriot Subaru, (including four flat screen TV's!) it was all a huge success!

Booking Around Town - Malcolm M

Patriot Subaru North Attleboro has been working for several years with “Read With Malcolm” founded by former New England Patriot and Super Bowl champ, Malcolm Mitchell. The RWM mission is to transform the lives of children through literacy by introducing book ownership to students who may not have access, or the means, to buy a book. To date, Patriot Subaru has purchased 650 copies of Malcolm’s book, “The Magician’s Hat”, and distributed them to students, primarily 2nd graders in the greater North Attleboro area. Associates from Patriot have made deliveries to the Amvet Elementary School, Community School, Falls Elementary, Roosevelt School, and Martin Elementary School. We coordinated with the school teachers and administrators, and it was a surprise for all the students when they were handed their very own book. Fantastic! We have been so pleased to have received cards and letters from these young students, thanking us. Keep on reading!

Supportive Food Drive For Shelter - Colleen J

As described in a previous Love Promise chapter, Patriot Subaru was able to donate a supply of blankets to the Community Care Alliance/ Woonsocket Homeless Shelter. While organizing that event, we coordinated with their Director of Communications and Development, Colleen Joubert. We told her to please reach out to us in time of need, and we would make our best effort to help. Several months later, Colleen did just that. She informed us that with homelessness rising, and support weakened due to the pandemic, supplies were getting very tight. In response, Patriot put together a food drive at the dealership. To broaden our reach, we contacted another local group, Missions That Matter, to join us in collecting canned goods and non-perishables. Social media and flyers produced by Patriot helped to spread the request to donate. Together we were able to collect 52 boxes of food, Associates from Patriot Subaru team loaded it all up and delivered and unloaded the items at the shelter. Love Promise, kept.

Patriot Subaru Loves NA Animal Shelter - FNAAS - Laura S

On behalf of all of us at Friends of the North Attleboro Animal Shelter (FNAAS) and the North Attleboro Animal Shelter, we want to express our immense gratitude to Patriot Subaru of North Attleboro for supporting us in the Subaru Loves Pets program in October. The North Attleboro Animal Shelter is a small municipal no-kill shelter and donations are crucial to maintaining their no-kill shelter status. The Shelter relies on fundraising and donations to help provide a stable and safe place for homeless animals and assure they receive proper veterinary care. Because of the pandemic, FNAAS had to cancel our major fundraising events this year, including what would have been the twentieth annual Strut Your Mutt Summer Festival, and what would have been our eleventh annual PAR for PETS Golf Tournament in the fall. Patriot Subaru of North Attleboro’s invitation for us to participate in the Subaru Loves Pets program could not have come at a more perfect time! We especially want to thank Patriot Subaru of North Attleboro’s marketing director Tom Talbott, the dealership’s general manager Mark Perryman, and last but not least, Patriot Subaru owner Adam Arens. Tom, Mark and Adam are incredibly generous, animal loving people who lead a company that truly walks the walk and talks the talk! We were also thrilled that the Subaru Loves Pets program was graciously opened up to include both cats and dogs. Since our shelter traditionally houses more cats than dogs, through Subaru’s generosity, the North Attleboro Animal Shelter was able to surpass the goal of 31 adoptions in October! Patriot Subaru of North Attleboro donated $100 to FNAAS for each of the first 20 dogs or cats adopted and Subaru of America donated $100 for each of the next 11 adoptions for a total of $3,100! One of the most important services that the North Attleboro Animal Shelter offers to the community is “Get Your Fix” which is a low cost spay and neuter program through the Animal Rescue League of Boston's mobile Spay Waggin'. This program helps to reduce the number of dogs and cats that end up in our shelter and other local shelters. The “Get Your Fix” program also provides vaccinations, flea/worm treatment and microchipping which are all vital for the health and well-being of the animals. This program serves numerous local pet owners each year and relies heavily on annual fundraising and donations to subsidize the costs. Thanks go to Patriot Subaru of North Attleboro and the Subaru Loves Pets program for helping us maintain the “Get Your Fix” clinics during this challenging time when individuals and families are relying on us more than ever. We are forever thankful to Patriot Subaru of North Attleboro and Subaru of America for their outstanding support. Partnering with such a big-hearted, like-minded company - one that even allows team members to bring their dogs to work - truly means the world to us and the pets we aim to find homes for!

Timely Delivery of Blankets To Shelter - Patriot S

On a brisk November afternoon, Patriot Subaru of North Attleboro donated and delivered 80 blankets to the Community Care Alliance, specifically their Serenity Center in Woonsocket, RI. With colder days approaching, the need for blankets is high on their list, and will be distributed to those in need. Turns out on the very day we called the CCA, they had just come out of a meeting where one of the topics was to find additional blankets for the homeless this season. The timing was very good, but the needs are so much deeper. During our delivery to the Serenity Center, we listened and learned from Colleen Joubert, CCA Director of Communications, and Lynn Mosher, Serenity Supervisor, about the role the Center plays in the community, the daily needs, and the struggles to keep up. We thanked them for all they do to help those who are homeless, those with addictions, and more. This is another step of the Subaru Love Promise / Subaru Loves To Help program. Nationally, Subaru will distribute 50,000 blankets this fall, from dealerships down to the local organizations that are in the best position to get the blankets to people. Joining for a photo, L-R, Mark Perryman/Patriot Subaru, Colleen Joubert and Lynn Mosher/CCA -Serenity Center, with Jacob Coyle, Kaysi Lombardi, and Matt D'Ambra from Patriot Subaru.

Subees! A Honeybee Rescue Mission - Mark P

August 2020 - a violent storm rocked the Providence area. In the nature conservation area to the side of our Patriot Subaru North Attleboro store, an old ash tree succumbed to the high winds. It did damage, and cut off access to our parking lot. General Manager Mark Perryman was in his office and heard the crash. Later that day, the Patriot team ventured out to survey the area, and noticed an abundance of bees swarming the area. Recognizing them as honeybees, Mark called everyone back in, deciding it would be best to let the bees settle down. Our next goal was to take steps to save the hive. We googled "Bee Keepers", and were disappointed to hear from several that we should just cut up the tree, clean up, and move on. No chance. Luckily one of our customers is an amateur beekeeper and they recommended the Charlton Bee Company. Scott Herbert and Chad Whitcomb manage 45 bee colonies in MA. They educate customers on how bee colonies survive, and the benefits to our environment. The mission was to find and extract the Queen, and the other bees will follow. The colony would then be transported to a new area, with an experienced beekeeper to take care of them. Mark Perryman donned full bee-gear and joined in the efforts. Chainsaws, with surgical precision isolated the hive, cutting it open, and though there were an estimated 20,000 honeybees, the larger Queen was located. We were witness to the inner comb, where bees were hatching in front of our eyes. Subees! The entire episode was a great experience to see. The mission was a success, and the hive was moved successfully. Our own National Geographic moment!

Share the Love, Share the Gloves! - Patriot S

With the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic in March 2020, there was an immediate need to find supplies of personal protection equipment. Gloves, masks, hand sanitizers, disinfectant wipes, and so on - quickly disappeared from the shelves, and suppliers ran dry. Patriot Subaru North Attleboro was able to tap one of our automotive vendors who supplied our service department, for a healthy supply of latex/ non-latex medical grade gloves. 5000 pairs to be exact! We made a call to the Providence VA Medical Center, to check on their needs, and they were in fact facing critical shortages Patriot General Manager Mark Perryman, and Cliff Oliveira/Service Director, packed up and made the delivery. Share the Gloves! On the receiving end at PVAMC were Donna Russillo/Chief Volunteer Services and Deb Veasey/ Volunteer Services. Because security was so tight, the delivery had to be made in the parking area. Mark and Cliff are both veterans, Army and Marines respectively, so it meant a lot to them to be able to deliver these items. In addition to the gloves, Patriot Subaru took up a collection at our store, asking associates, customers, and friends, who might engage in a hobby or craft that uses PPE goods, to share any new, unopened boxes of gloves, masks, or items of that nature. The collection was relatively small, but one item is better than none! We appreciate everyone who participated, and know that the PVAMC was able to put all the items to excellent use.
