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.
Grappone in the Community Sarah Touchette, Grappone Toyota Express Service Advisor, volunteered at Make-a-Wish® New Hampshire on Wednesday, February 4th. Sarah had this to say about her day of volunteering. “While I was at Make-a-Wish, I was able to take a tour of their facility and learn about what they do. They did make sure to clear up any misconceptions about how children are picked for the program. They do NOT have to be terminal to qualify, which was comforting. They are finding that giving children their wish helps greatly with the healing process. It helps them to forget about what they’re going through and get back to being a kid again. That fun helps them be a little stronger. Before the tour and then following, I helped with office tasks. I organized the supply closet, blanked out folders so they could be used again and sorted files. It was nice to help take some work off their hands so they could focus on the important things.” Did you know that every 4 days Make-A-Wish® New Hampshire grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in New Hampshire? They believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. It inspires them and changes their lives. To learn more about Make-a-Wish® New Hampshire got to www.http://wish.org/. Thanks for volunteering, Sarah!
