Community Service

Reflecting on our 2023 season, we take pride in the cumulative impact of our collective community service efforts. The smiles we’ve elicited, the lives we’ve touched, and the positive change we’ve catalyzed serve as testaments to the ethos that defines CVR.

Looking ahead to 2024, our commitment remains resolute. We stand ready to continue our legacy of service, leveraging our passion for the Porsche brand to help create positive change within our community. With each mile we drive and every initiative we undertake, our dedication to making a meaningful difference in the lives of those in our communities remains unwavering.

Porsches@The Rock Puts a Dent in Hunger

In keeping with CVR’s motto, “It’s not just the cars, it’s the people”, over 1000 people attended the Porsche at the Rock event and made non-perishable food and/or monetary donations to support The Corner Food Pantry in Lakeville, CT.
All of their funding and food comes from private sources. CVR was pleased to fill Dave Vaccaro’s trailer with food and provide The Corner Food Pantry with a check for $1000.
A big THANKS to those who brought food and/or donated money to benefit this excellent organization. To learn more about the Corner Food Pantry please see The Corner Food Pantry

Drivers Education

Drivers Education (DE) held two very successful food drives in 2023 to benefit the Corner Food Pantry in Lakeville. The Food Pantry included a thank you in their newsletter to recognize CVR’s continued support.

 

The CVR People’s Choice Concours

On October 14th CVR hosted its annual People’s Choice Concours at the Farmington Polo club in Farmington, CT. The theme of the event was a Celebration of 60 Years of the Porsche 911 and 75 Years of the Porsche Brand.
CVR Community Service partnered with the People’s Choice Concours to support Protectors of Animals (POA), a non-profit, primarily volunteer, no-kill organization whose mission is to increase the quality of life for all dogs and cats in the communities they serve.
We collected over 700 pounds of dog and cat food as well as over 100 pounds of kitty litter, treats, toys and monetary donations for the Protectors of Animals. The Region also presented Protectors of Animals with a check for $1000. To learn more about POA please visit Protectors Of Animals
