Jennifer Spinney, Grappone Toyota Appointment Coordinator Team Leader, volunteered for the Merrimack Valley Football Boosters on Wednesday, August 10th. When Jenn first arrived, she attended the team meeting with the coach, athletic director, trainer, assistant coaches and players. They spoke to the players about respect, grades, behavior, and team work. She was impressed by the response from the team as they listened to their peer’s valuable lessons, which included a conversation on adopting healthy lifestyle choices. She was amazed at how the Merrimack Valley Football Boosters philosophy mirrors ours, here at Grappone Automotive Group. Jenn helped wrangle up the boys, created an attendance sheet for the coach, as well as, documented where the players stand with completion of their impact test, sports physical, camp registration, and IIE agreement. She also assisted with lunch preparation, serving, and cleanup. At the end of her day of volunteering, Jenn presented the Merrimack Valley Football Boosters with a $250 donation from Grappone in the Community, on her behalf.
Laura Evans, Grappone Toyota Appointment Coordinator, arrived at Live and Let Live Farm in Chichester, NH, on Friday, July 22nd, to meet with Terry Penny, a volunteer at the farm. She watched a short film on the history of how the farm came to be. She then went straight to work, at the Tack Shop, sorting rain sheets, turn out sheets and light blankets, and binning them up according to size. Laura’s next project consisted of unloading the truck’s inventory used at the Deerfield Fair Grounds the prior weekend for the Deerfield 250th Celebration. She also worked with Terry to saddle a horse for the very first time. Finally, Laura cleaned out the puppy pens and exercised the puppies to help release some of their built up energy! At the end of her day of volunteering, Laura presented Terry Penny with a $250 donation from Grappone in the Community to help support the farm. Live and Let Live Farm is “A non-profit, Volunteer Rehabilitation, Rescue and Sanctuary for animals”, which relies solely on volunteers to run the farm. Laura had a wonderful time and is looking forward to returning to the farm again soon!
