At Patriot Subaru in Saco, Maine, we believe that the season of giving shouldn't just be during the holidays. That's why we created our 12 Weeks of Giving campaign, an initiative that supports local charities and community non-profits in our area, 12 months a year. To help channel our giving, we  identify programs and initiatives that support healthy communities and bright futures.  After all, we are only as strong as the community we serve.

In 2021, we donated $16,800 through this program and plan to continue in 2022.


During the first week of every month, we set aside $25 for every vehicle sold during the donation week. We will double the donation if the purchaser lives in the zip code where the organization is located.

Patriot believes that local non-profits work hard to  improve people's lives by mobilizing the caring power of our community. We saw how they unite individuals and organizations around a shared vision, working to improve the education, financial stability, and health for all citizens.  They embody the Patriot Mission Statement: "To Serve", and we are proud to be able to provide them with a bit of exposure as well as financial support.

January 2022 Charity: Rotary Club of Portland, Maine

 

We begin our 2022 "12 Weeks of Giving" program by teaming up with the Rotary Club of Portland, Maine. Rotary is an international service organization, with over 32,000 clubs worldwide. "Service Above Self" is the Rotary motto, and each individual club endeavors to provide both financial as well as much needed "hands-on" support to the needs of their local community. At the Portland Rotary, the local programs are multi-faceted, from preparing and serving meals at neighborhood soup kitchens, collecting and distributing backpacks with essentials to those in need, supporting local literacy programs, green initiatives, mentoring youth, and many more. On an international level, Portland Rotary members have traveled abroad with their professional skills to implement programs for hearing aids, prosthetic limbs, water filtration systems, and more. Rotary welcomes all who are willing to volunteer their time, effort, and abilities to help and assist others. FMI Portland Rotary
