Amanda Jenkins, Grappone Toyota Express Service Advisor, volunteered on Friday, February 20, 2015 at Pope Memorial SPCA. Last April, Pope Memorial SPCA relocated to their new three million dollar facility in Concord, NH. The new facility allows them the capability to help over one hundred animals at any given time. Amanda was amazed to see all that goes into the process of running an animal shelter. She arrived at 9 a.m. and started her shift helping the morning cleaning crew. Most of the staff begins work at 7 a.m. at the SPCA in order to have everything cleaned and ready to open the facility at noon. There was a room full of cats with the flu so everything had to be removed and bleached twice before new animals could go into this area. She also sanitized dishes, cleaned laundry, removed trash, organized food, and swept and mopped floors. After the cleaning chores were finished, Amanda assisted with data entry by inputting volunteer hours and filing new volunteer applications. There are over 300 active volunteers at the SPCA alone, which makes this non-profit organization a well-oiled machine. Volunteer positions range from dog walking and cat technicians to fundraising and special events. Amanda was very impressed by the passion and dedication that each volunteer displayed and she was glad to be able to be a part of helping the animals in need.

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!
