Secor Subaru in the New London Community

Secor in Our Community

Here at Secor Subaru we realize that in order for us to be the community dealer here in New London, we need to be an active part of the community. You can't just take from the community as a whole, you have to offer something in return, and this is why we proudly work with several charitable organizations in our community as a sponsor for events or donating our space (our Large Indoor lot) and time to them. Being a proud member of this community is a big part of what makes the Secor Family of dealerships who we are, we live here, we work here and this is where we chose to give back. Here are a few of the local organizations with which we chose to partner.

TVCAA

TVCCA is the Thames Valley Council for Community Action; their mission is to increase the self-sufficiency and economic security for low income individuals and families in eastern CT through collaboration, community and quality. To this end the offer several programs including.

  • Meals on Wheels which brings nutritionally sound meals to the disabled and homebound senior citizens. Food is delivered by volunteers and is a life line for people who have no other support system or social interaction. This is the program with which we are directly partnered and is a Subaru of America partnered charity for the share the love event.
  • Educational programs like Head Start, Little Learners and early head start, all programs designed to give low income families the opportunity to get a jump on getting a good education.
  • Employment programs to help people who are out of work find a job and get back on their feet by combining numerous training, education and employment programs into one single user friendly program.
  • Other programs include Nutritional and Energy Assistance, Housing Programs, Financial Services and case management.

We feel so strongly about the work TVCCA Meals on Wheels does that we Arranged for them to receive a 2018 Subaru Outback donated from Subaru of America and in 2017 alone Donated over $30,000 all of which went to the food services programs. We also have raised over $170,000 over the years for them through the share the love event through Subaru and are happy to sponsor there annual Gala and Silent Auction. We are very proud to partner with this fantastic community organization on many events to ensure that they are able to keep doing the things they are doing for those less fortunate in our great community.

The Connecticut Shoreline Photo Family

The Connecticut Shoreline Photo family is a group of community members who, through the medium of photography, share and preserve the beauty and uniqueness of the CT shoreline. Working solo, in conjunction with other local community organizations and with our Military, they aim to capture the moments that make life special here on the shoreline. We include them in many of the events we host or sponsor, giving them the chance to showcase and sell their photographs, with most, if not all of the proceeds going toward the charity being featured at the event. We feel it is a privilege to be able to work with them, and our very own Paul Holden is a member and often one of the featured photographers.
