Grappone in the Community with Stevenna Pisapia

Amanda Osmer Uncategorized

  Stevenna Pisapia, Grappone Human Resources Assistant, had a blast volunteering at The Upper Room’s 14th Annual Family Matters Auction on Friday, November 6th to benefit southern NH children and families. While there she helped set up the tables for the auction, did registration, entered the bid numbers, and cashed everyone out at the end of the night. Stevenna said it was inspirational seeing the community come together to support such a great non-profit during a fun night of silent bids, live bids, raffles, and games. And on top of all of that fund raising, 75 children were sponsored directly at $250 a piece per child; the Grappone in the Community program directly sponsoring one of those children. The Upper Room is a non-profit Family Resource Center located in Derry committed to the development of strong individuals and families in the community. Stevenna has previously volunteered and interned at The Upper Room and is very thankful she had an opportunity to go back through the Grappone in the Community program. She’s excited to volunteer again next year at The Upper Room’s 15th Annual Family Matters Auction!  

Grappone in the Community with Jenna Wible

Amanda Osmer Uncategorized

  The weather was quite chilly, but the atmosphere was fun and welcoming when Jenna Wible, Grappone Ford/Mazda Parts Warehouse Representative, arrived at the Autism Speaks Northern New England 13th annual Walk on Sunday, September 20th. Jenna signed in and headed over to the Children’s Activity Area to set up and decorate the tent. She spent most of her time helping the children with coloring, making bookmarks and Halloween pictures. Each child got a sticker once they completed a craft which they could trade in for a prize. She also spent some time at the bounce house; when the children were finished bouncing she gave them each a lollipop. Families from Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont gathered on the campus of Southern New Hampshire University to support Autism Speaks’ mission to fund research and increase awareness to advocate for individuals with autism and their families. Special guests included: the UNH Men’s basketball team, WLNH 98.3 DJ “Mya,” and representatives from the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon. Jenna was proud to be a part of this event, and at the end of her day of volunteering she presented Autism Speaks with a $250 donation from Grappone in the Community, made on her behalf.

Well at Work

How long do you sit every day? By now you likely know that sitting for too long seems to fly in the face of what your body was designed to do. I’m not a trained professional but I do have personal experience in a lifestyle that involves lots of sitting or being still, and one that includes daily movement….lots of movement.  As with anything in life, I believe you should follow what inspires you but fact check along the way.  The chart featured here may bring up questions which can lead you down your own path of discovery, which is a gift in itself.  But I did not write it, so I can’t vouch for 100% accuracy; it simply led me to wanting to tell you about an event that changed the way I look at the role of fitness in my life. I feel strongly as a wife, mom, and business leader that we should all make the time each day to move if we are able.  This last statement hits me deeply, as I’ve just watched for three years as my brother Greg‘s body suffered the worst that cancer and its treatments had to offer, breaking him down to the point where he literally couldn’t take a deep breath or move beyond a severely limited range of motion.  He died on May 1 due to complications from a stem cell transplant in which I was his donor.

Downtown Concord’s Market Days

Amanda Osmer Amanda Grappone Osmer, Community, Uncategorized

  Back in the day, we called it “Old Fashioned Bargain Days.” It always marked what seemed to be the hottest, muggiest days of the summer, and promised treats like fried dough and ice cream. With Main Street’s facelift well underway (looking good! Congrats to the hardworking team…), this year’s Market Days in downtown Concord have been vibrant, fun, and not quite so hot. I vote to keep it a June event. I’m proud to be a Concord native and talk to out-of-towners and newcomers about what a wonderful place this is to do business and raise a family. Happy summer… Amanda

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!
