2022 Patriot Subaru Loves NA Animal Shelter - FNAAS - Laura S

All of us at Friends of the North Attleboro Animal Shelter (FNAAS) and the North Attleboro Animal Shelter give a BIG thank you to Patriot Subaru of North Attleboro for inviting us to partner with them in the October Subaru Loves Pets program for a third year! We are so appreciative of their continued support! Patriot Subaru of North Attleboro’s dedication to advocating adoption of homeless pets is remarkable, especially adoption of Underdogs and cats that are overlooked in the shelters due to senior age, handicaps and/or special needs. During the month of October, Patriot Subaru of North Attleboro donated $100 for each of the first 31 dogs or cats adopted with a potential total of $3,100. We are so thrilled that the North Attleboro Animal Shelter, with the help of so many caring people, was able to surpass the goal again this year with 42 adoptions! Patriot Subaru of North Attleboro’s generous donation will help provide homeless animals at the North Attleboro Animal Shelter with food, housing and veterinary care until they can be adopted into loving forever homes. This contribution will also help subsidize the Shelter’s “Get Your Fix” low cost spay and neuter program which is offered to the community to help reduce the number of dogs and cats that end up in our shelter and other local shelters. Pictured here in back left to right are FNAAS board members Laura Westcott and Marsha Goldstein and North Attleboro Animal Shelter staff members Brenda Cooper, Donna Thomas and Patty Cavanaugh. In front center is North Attleboro Animal Control Officer Felicia Camara with 13 year old senior and handicapped Underdog Prince (Prince has a pending adoption! 😊). Many thanks again to Patriot Subaru of North Attleboro for their outstanding support! Partnering with such a big-hearted, like-minded company - one that even encourages team members to bring their dogs to work - truly means the world to us and all the homeless pets waiting to be adopted!

Read - Succeed! - Patriot S

While we have done this event several times, it is a mission that has no boundaries, and endless opportunities to make a difference. Patriot Subaru has supported education through a number of programs including donations to fund classroom supplies, donating supplies to after-school food kitchens, and this one -putting books into student’s hands. Books that they can keep as their own. Our relationship with the “Read With Malcolm” literacy program started back in 2018, connecting us with New England Patriot / Super Bowl champ/ children’s author, Malcolm Mitchell. Since then, Patriot Subaru has purchased over 1200 copies of Malcolm’s books, and distributed them to 2nd graders in the greater North Attleboro area. We call it our “Community Reading Day,” with store associates personally touring elementary schools, handing out the books, and then reading it aloud to the entire 2nd grade class. Aside from the book, is of course the fun of having Malcolm with us on the tour. He’s magic with the kids, relating to them his personal story of his fear of reading, overcoming it, embracing it, loving it. Learning to love to read opened many personal doors for Malcolm, and he encourages the kids to do the same. We get the chant going: ”Read, Succeed!” At the end he takes personal questions from the students. “How did you get the idea for the book?” “How long did it take to write it?” “Do you know Tom Brady?” Same questions our Patriot associates asked! The best is a sea of smiling young faces, each one clutching their new book. For many students, this is the first book they have personally owned, so it has special meaning. Patriot Subaru believes futures are changed with education, and education begins by learning to read. You can never do too much. #Read

Legends for Literacy - Patriot S

Patriot Subaru North Attleboro was a sponsor of an important literacy event centered on kids who are “at risk.” The event is organized by the Rotary Club of Providence, under their umbrella campaign, The Jane Babcock Literacy Initiative. Each year, the club has a special event tabbed as the “Legends for Literacy Gala.” This year featured a tie-in with the New England Patriots Alumni and was held at the Marriott Hotel, Providence. The mission of this event is to raise both money and awareness of “at-risk” students, who for a variety of reasons have fallen behind in reading skills. With compromised skills, these students are more likely to fail in school, leading to a host of long-term problems. Statistically, barely 16% of public-school students read at or above grade level. This is more than serious, this is a true crisis with untold impact. This event provides funding to purchase new and innovative literacy teaching materials. Helping students catch-up and develop reading skills pays great dividends to both the individual and our communities. Patriot friend and our local partner in the Subaru Share The Love Event, Malcolm Mitchell, was the keynote speaker at the Gala. Patriot associates Adam Arens and Mary Sweeney, Mark and Stacey Perryman, Matt D’ambra, and Corinne Fox attended the event. Two days earlier, Patriot purchased and distributed over 500 copies of Malcolm’s children’s book to 2nd grade students in the Attleboro area, a fun topic of discussion at the Gala!

Tools for the Classroom - Patriot S

Each August, it’s "Subaru Loves Learning" Month, and Subaru retailers nationwide are on board! Subaru partnered with AdoptAClassroom.org and Patriot Subaru North Attleboro teamed up locally with the M.Virginia Cunningham Elementary School in Pawtucket, RI. Once again, Patriot was proud to donate $3000 to MVC to spend at the AdoptAClassroom online store. This way teachers can purchase the supplies that they feel are specific and necessary for their classrooms. The online store has a wide variety of tools and books so teachers can get the things that work best for their grade and students. You can bet every penny gets spent and is put to good use. All to often, teachers have to dip into their own personal pockets for learning essentials, and that’s just not right. We hope that events like this help to build greater awareness of the AdoptAClassroom program, and other businesses will start similar donation programs. Naturally we loved the letter of thanks, and a great Thank You photo sent by the MVC students. Our pleasure!

Support for Lenore's Food Pantry - Patriot S

Late 2022, and the current economy has sent food prices escalating over the past months. The economic impact is felt at all levels, and that includes community food pantries that depend on donations of food and money to stock their shelves. As times get tougher, the number of people who need assistance from food services also rises, so it’s added pressure. Lenore’s Pantry has served the North Attleboro, MA area since 1978, and has always depended on the generosity of local citizens, businesses, schools, and churches to provide the resources necessary for Lenore’s services to operate. Assistance goes to seniors who need to supplement their fixed incomes, as well as families with food insecurities. Joining in to support the initiative, Patriot Subaru North Attleboro held an employee food drive, collecting items specifically requested by the Lenore’s team, and delivered it to the collection point at the North Attleboro Town Hall. Pictured here, associate Marty Ross checks over some of the supplies getting ready to be transported over to the site. Every bit helps, neighbors helping neighbors, pitching in together.

Keeping North Attleboro Beautiful - Patriot S

“I think that I shall never see, a poem lovely as a tree.” – Joyce Kilmer. That’s the truth. Along that line, Patriot Subaru North Attleboro has enjoyed supporting the Keep North Attleboro Beautiful organization, every year since we opened in 2014. Our donations continue to help their group with new beautification projects in the community, specifically the planting of over 20 shade trees. This summer 2022, three non-fruit bearing chanticleer pear trees were planted at the Amvet Boulevard School. In addition, a variety of perennials were planted in an expanded area near the flagpole. All plantings were diligently provided by Total Lawn and Landscape, Ine. North Attleboro. On this beautiful day we have KNAB Executive Director, Marsha Goldstein, Patriot Subaru Managing Partner, Mark Perryman, new Amvet Blvd. School Principal Alec Ciminello, Patriot Subaru General Sales Manager Matt D'Ambra, and Total Lawn & Landscape Design Manager, Julie Fitzgerald. Principal Ciminello and Amvet Blvd. School staff members expressed their delight with these beautiful plantings. Supporting green initiatives is ingrained in Patriot Subaru, which operates as a zero-land fill facility. We recycle, reuse, or return all waste items, while using a number of energy reducing techniques within the store. We offer customers extra services by taking their waste oils that we can recycle. So as you can imagine, planting trees is really fun, since we can see the growth of our investments growing every year!

Warm Blankets Provide Comfort - Patriot S

Every three minutes, one person in the U.S. is diagnosed with some form of blood cancer. Recognizing this, Patriot Subaru of North Attleboro has always been a strong participant in the Subaru Loves to Care national campaign that has partnered with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We connected with LLS New England Campaign Development Manager, Bridget McEachern, to deliver a supply of 80 blankets to Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro, MA. The package included messages of hope and strength for those suffering from a blood cancer or life-threatening illness. Each hand-written card was made by either a Patriot Subaru associate or a customer. Our team met at Sturdy to make the delivery, and met many of the key personnel from the LLS and the hospital, allowing us the opportunity to thank them for the continuous work and dedication for helping individuals and families through difficult times. On the delivery for Patriot we had Mark Perryman, Matt D'Ambra, George Jenkins, George Gamache, and Maya D'Ambra. From the LLS, Bridget McEachern, and from Sturdy Memorial, Elini Kontogil, Aimee Brewer, Kathy D. Martin, and Rose Antonino. #subarulovestocare

Fundraising For Fur Friends - Patriot S

Patriot Subaru was once again a sponsor and participating vendor at the annual Harvest Fest, a special fundraising event held by the “Friends of Attleboro Animal Shelter”, Attleboro, MA. (FAAS) Anyone who knows our store knows that there's at least one dog in the store at any given time! Patriot's Betty Husted and Destri Desilets set up a great display - we had raffle prizes, treats and fun handkerchiefs for the dogs, while we showed some of the car accessories available to pet owners who like to travel with their pets. The real fun was meeting so many people out and about walking their dogs, taking in the beautiful afternoon. Best of all, the event raised $17,700 to benefit FAAS, with the funding helping to vet, vaccinate, alter and prep current and future shelter pups for new loving homes. Patriot Subaru encourages adoption, particularly for those animals that may have a physical disability, but never an ounce short of love. We’re already looking forward to next year! #PetAdoption

Food Truck Friday - Patriot S

Who says a Love Promise can't have a bit of fun? Patriot Subaru sponsored and participated in a delicious family summer event, "Food Truck Friday," held at Roger Williams Park in Providence. For ten Friday nights between May and September, Patriot joined in the festivities that always saw 15 or more locally sourced food trucks set up to serve enthusiastic food lovers. The program featured family-friendly activities and games, a carousel, train rides, and Hasbro's boundless playground. Each event, Patriot would set up a tent, and include games and lots of fun swag-style giveaways. The most "pupular" item was our dog bandana! While not a charity event, we stepped out of our wheelhouse to support and engage with this local activity, following our suit of supporting local food suppliers who were hit hard by the pandemic. Earlier in the summer we purchased and gave away ten $100 gift certificates to local restaurants while supporting an arts event. We saw Food Truck Friday as an extension of that effort, by doing something fun while providing benefits to others. Helping other local businesses get back on their feet works for us - particularly when we get to eat some great food!

"Beyond Van Gogh", Patriot Turns A Forester Into A Star Car! - Patriot S

Patriot Subaru North Attleboro supports the arts and local businesses, and makes it a lot of fun at the same time! A local radio station introduced us to the national tour of the “The Van Gogh Experience”, which uses the brilliant and colorful art of Vincent Van Gogh combined with cutting edge projection technology. Together it creates one of the most dramatic immersive artistic experiences one can imagine! The event was held at the Rhode Island Convention Center, a 30,000 square foot exhibition, and wowed audiences from mid-May to early July 2022. In fact, 53,000 tickets were sold, the largest ticketed event in the Center's history. So, what did Patriot Subaru do? As an official sponsor of the event, we started by wrapping a Subaru Forester in the same artwork as Van Gogh’s iconic “Starry Night” painting, and placed it right in front of the main entrance to the Convention Center. You couldn’t miss it, it was definitely a head turner! To gain more interaction with the visitors, we had signage asking people to take a photo of themselves with the car, and upload it to a special online portal we created. Each upload counted as an entry into a random drawing, where we gave away ten $100 gift cards to ten of the finest restaurants in Providence. We know these restaurants needed support, given the pandemic and the economy, so we did not ask for donations, we purchased the cards to show our appreciation. The event was a big hit, and show attendees said our “Star Car” was a wonderful tie-in to the entire theme of the show. Our 10 Gift Card winners were announced on Facebook including their photo, followed by making personal contact to arrange for the pickup or delivery of the card. Supporting the arts, and supporting local businesses, that’s a great Love Promise! #VanGoghExperience #SupportArts
