Gratitude behind Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac food drive. Plymouth automobile dealership to hold canned good drive for month of November to support local food pantries

Jeff Tracy, president of Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac

PLYMOUTH, MA…

For the second year in a row, Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac has teamed up to fight hunger with the South Shore Community Action Council’s Greater Plymouth Food Warehouse to host a canned food drive at the dealership’s 137 Samoset Street (Route 44) location. The drive will take place during the month of November and all donated goods will go to the Greater Plymouth Food Warehouse, which provides food to more than 30 emergency food pantries and soup kitchens in the greater Plymouth area.

“We’ve always believed that being in business was about being part of the community. As part of the community, we feel it’s important to help out those who might be going through a bit of a tough time,” said Jeff Tracy, president of Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac. “We encourage everybody to stop by the dealership and make a contribution to the drive.”

As an added incentive, Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac is taking $10 off an oil change for customers who come in with canned goods to donate. Customers simply need to present their canned goods when they check in for an oil change and the $10 will be deducted. Depending on the type of vehicle you drive, that can be a savings between 15 and 30 percent.

Containers for the food drive will be located throughout the Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac showroom. All canned goods and other non-perishables are welcomed and accepted.

“Last year’s drive generated 385 pounds of food, which equates to 296 meals. We can’t thank Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac enough for stepping up once again to host a food drive during this critical time of year,” said Steve Bailey, of South Shore Community Action Council. “The winter months and the holidays always present challenges in getting food to the people who need it. We’re hopeful that Tracy’s customers and people in the area will get in the spirit of the Thanksgiving season and give generously to this drive.”

That kind of generosity is nothing new for Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac. Since its founding in 1992, the dealership has been involved in a number of charitable endeavors. That includes supporting The Driven Student Recognition for students at Plymouth North and South High Schools, the Boys & Girls Clubs, and many more.

Plymouth South freshmen get the treatment from upper classmen…Tutoring program mentors receive Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac’s “Driven Student” award.

PLYMOUTH, MA…

 

As a high school student, your freshman year can be the most difficult. New school, new teachers and more demanding homework. To help freshman class members struggling with the heavier workload, Plymouth South High School developed a tutoring program with upper classmen acting as mentors. The upper classmen who participated in this very successful program were honored recently as the Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac Driven Students of the month for May.

 

To honor these students, Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac treated several members of the tutoring team to a pizza party. Those taking part included: Sara Amell, Kiana Barrett, Derek Basler, Josh Begley, John Carroll, Diane Coon, Jackie Davies, Justin Embree, Leah Fahey, Kate Hagenburg, Crystal Jankowski, Eric McCue, Stefanie Morrison, Sean Mulvey, Kelly Noonan, Sean Reid, Brianna Thissell, Taylor Wilson, Matt Mulligan and Thomas Murphy.

 

“The stereotype is that freshman are generally picked on by the upper classmen. With this tutoring program, we have smashed that perception,” said Yvonne Loranger, one of the program’s faculty advisors, along with Matt Carpentino. “These students carry full academic loads as well as balancing other activities and still have taken time out to help their fellow students. That’s beyond commendable. And the bottom line is that it’s benefitted the students they’ve been tutoring tremendously.”

Adds Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac President Jeff Tracy, “Being a high school student is tough enough without adding anything else to your plate. By taking part in this tutoring program, these students are not only helping out this crop of freshman, but setting an example for the entire school. For that, they are most deserving of this month’s ‘Driven Student’ award.”

 

Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac’s Driven Student program recognizes Plymouth high school students for their performance and achievements in and out of the classroom. Awarded on a monthly basis, recipients are selected by faculty and advisors at the student’s given school.

Plymouth North students win Tracy Driven Student award for peer leadership.

PLYMOUTH, MA…

Being a freshman in high school is not easy. New and larger school. New classmates, many of whom are much older than you. It can be intimidating. Yet thanks to a pilot freshman advisory program at Plymouth North, the transition to high school life has gone much smoother—and earned those upper classmen participating in the program the Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac Driven Student award for November.

In its first year in existence, the advisory program pairs volunteer upper classmen with groups of freshmen. Meeting every few weeks, the peer leaders offer guidance and mentoring with regard to all the transitional issues most new high school students face: classes, teachers, social activities, etc. So far the pilot program has been received quite favorably both by the volunteers and the participating freshman students.

“As a new program, we certainly didn’t know what to expect,” said Michelle Lewison, a teacher at Plymouth North and adviser for the peer leadership program. “It’s been quite remarkable from both perspectives. The freshmen students have been eager to participate and greatly appreciate the advice of their peer counselors. On the other side, I’ve seen some of our peer counselors really take to the role and show tremendous growth just in a short few months.”

Students volunteering as peer leaders include: Sarah Bramhall, Kelley Brennan, Joe Brigida, Jessica Brown, Alex Brunstrom, Mark Holmes, Nicole Holmes, Brett Chasnov, Andrew Cullivan, Connor Duggan, Mary Faraday, Shana Follette, Sarah Guevremont, David Ingalls, Terry Jaeger, Pat Kirkland, Kendall Kolb, Shannon Lloyd, Timothy Lockett, Kyle Maynard, Emily McCune, Jessica McIntyre, Rorrie Mellor, Rachael Milroy, Samantha Pickett, Amy Riordan, David Rountree, Sam Rudolph and Stephanie Wilson and Amy Zaki.
As the winners of Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac’s Driven Student of the Month, the peer leaders were treated to a pizza party, hosted by Jeff Tracy, president of Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac. Student also received Tracy hats and polo shirts.

“You can’t give these peer leaders enough credit for taking part in this pilot program. Not only are they taking time away from other activities, but many of them are stepping out of their comfort zone to help younger students. You really have to admire that and that’s why they are worthy winners of the Driven Student award,” said Tracy.
