Food Drive For Bethany VIllage Fellowship - Reverend Daniel D

Patriot Subaru N. Attleboro associates took up a Food Drive amongst ourselves, and took the collection over to some new friends at the Bethany Village Fellowship, South Attleboro. Bethany is pastored by Dr. Rev. Daniel and Ellen Doré, who take in adults with special needs. No matter what you’ve been through or what questions you might have, the fellowship wants you to be a part of their family. They run a food pantry helping those in need, and our contribution was greatly welcomed. We enjoyed meeting, listening, and learning all about their truly inspiring program. Support your local food pantries, where ever you live, supplies are always tight. On the delivery, from the left, Linda Tavares, Mark Perryman, and Patrick Kelly. Thank you Daniel and Ellen for your inspiration and community leadership.

Helping the School Pantry - Krystal V

Patriot Subaru North Attleboro visited the M Virginia Cunningham Elementary School in Pawtucket earlier this fall, part of our Subaru Loves Learning program. At that time we were able to donate $3000 in school supplies to support teachers. Meeting School Principal Krystal Vento, we learned that the school food pantry is an important resource for many students as well as families less fortunate. Mark Perryman, Managing Partner Patriot Subaru said "We'll help!". We collected non-perishables and canned goods, and brought enough down so that 50 bags could be delivered before Thanksgiving. Krystal thanked us, but really it is us who are thanking the school, for all you do teaching and helping young students and families every day. We're glad to pitch in. Down from North Attleboro - Mark Perryman, Corinne Fox, George Gamache, John Rappa, and Ezra Blasing! #LovePromise #FoodDrive

Patriot Subaru Loves NA Animal Shelter - Oct 2021 - Laura S

All of us at Friends of the North Attleboro Animal Shelter (FNAAS) and the North Attleboro Animal Shelter, want to give a huge shout-out to Patriot Subaru of North Attleboro for partnering with us for a second year in the October Subaru Loves Pets program! We want to give a special thanks to Patriot Subaru of North Attleboro’s Marketing Director Tom Talbott, the dealership’s General Manager Mark Perryman, and Patriot Subaru owner Adam Arens for their continued generous support. 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 sanctuary and necessary veterinary care for homeless animals. In addition, one of the most important services that the North Attleboro Animal Shelter offers to the community is the “Get Your Fix” clinics 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. Although some Covid restrictions were lifted in 2021, FNAAS still decided to cancel our two major annual fundraising events for a second year for the safety and health of all who would have attended and participated in the events. So we are especially appreciative of Patriot Subaru of North Attleboro for inviting us to participate in the October Subaru Loves Pets program again. Patriot Subaru of North Attleboro donated $100 to FNAAS for each of up to 31 dogs or cats adopted in October for a total of $3,100. We are thrilled that the North Attleboro Animal Shelter, with the help of so many caring people in our community, was able to surpass the goal of 31 adoptions! Thank you again to Patriot Subaru of North Attleboro for their outstanding support especially during these challenging times!

Patriot Loves To Care Blankets - Colleen J

Patriot Subaru North Attleboro journeyed to the Serenity Center, a substance addiction recovery facility in downtown Woonsocket, RI, delivering a supply of 80 water-resistant blankets for those in need. Serenity is a resource powered by the Community Care Alliance. The CCA provides more than 50 essential services for people and families challenged by basic needs, from mental health and addiction, housing, food, employment, and trauma, 365 days a year. As part of the Subaru Loves To Help national program, Patriot reached out again to the CCA, with the blanket donation. It is but a very tiny fraction of what is needed, and as much as anything we hope to raise some awareness of the importance of supporting, either financially or volunteering time, to shelters in your personal community. The work of organizations like the CCA can not be understated, and we are so thankful for what they do everyday. Thank you to the staff and team at CCA, and the Serenity Center. #SubaruLovesToHelp #LovePromise

Joys of Reading, With Malcolm - Malcolm M

Patriot Subaru North Attleboro teamed up with former NE Patriot/ Super Bowl Champ Malcolm Mitchell for the past several years in support of his literary mission, the "Read WIth Malcolm - Share the Magic Foundation." Malcolm credits learning to read and his discovery of the joy of reading as one of the most important experiences of his life, and has a goal of helping young students realize the same benefit. Patriot purchased 300 copies of Malcolm's new book, "My Very Favorite Book in the Whole Wide World", and with Malcolm at our side, we set off on a tour of five elementary schools in North Attleboro. From there, we met with all of the 2nd graders at each school, giving each student their own personal copy of the book. For many, this was the first book they could call their own. Fantastic time, smiles, laughter, good cheer all around. We visited the elementary schools of Amvet, Community, Roosevelt Ave, Falls, and Joseph W. Martin. The kids were so excited to meet Malcolm! At each school, Malcolm would share his story, and the students would ask questions. Everything from "What Inspired you to write a book?" to "Where did you get your ideas?" Of course, there was , "Were you a good football player?" (Answer - I was pretty good.") Or, "Do you know Tom Brady?" (Yes!) Thank you Malcolm! We appreciate you making this special trip with us. It was rewarding on every level! #LovePromise #ReadWithMalcolm

Who Loves Learning? - Krystal V

Patriot Subaru Loves Learning, and supporting those who teach our young students. Patriot Subaru of North Attleboro visited the M Virginia Cunningham Elementary School in Pawtucket RI, to meet a wonderful team of faculty, teachers, and students. It was also an opportunity to celebrate, as Patriot Subaru, in coordination with the Subaru Loves Learning program, teamed up with AdoptAClassroom to provide school supplies to the school. Patriot donated $3000, which provided 6 of the MVC Elementary with a $500 credit at the AdoptAClassroom.org online store. The teachers were able to shop for the items that best suit their student's needs. Patriot Subaru's Mark Perryman, Matt D'Ambra, Corinne Fox, and Stephanie Ross were greeted by the school's principal, Krystal Vento. We thanked her and all the teachers for all they do to help young students learn and grow. It was a pleasure to visit and see you in action. #SubaruLovesLearning

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.
