 Premier auto group delivers food to W.H.E.A.T.  Rick Marino and Nate Glazewski delivering food 
 February 10, 2021 - Rick Marino (Representing the Premier Subaru Team) and Nate Glazewski (Representing the Premier Kia Team) donated a van full of food to the West Haven Emergency Assistance Taskforce (WHEAT) in West Haven.  This collection was the culmination of more than a month of efforts by both the Premier Subaru and Premier Kia teams to assist needed organizations in our community.  During January, 2021, both showrooms had vehicles available to store donations - from employees and clients alike - for donation.   The efforts of the Premier team led to a van full of non-perishable food being collected.

WHEAT is a non-profit charity, located in West Haven, CT., that exists on donations of food and funds and has been in existence for more than 45 years.  It is a volunteer organization that assists more than 5,000 households and families, including those that are unemployed, underemployed, disabled, seniors on a fixed income, veterans with limited benefits and children.

Food is delivered to W.H.E.A.T.

We appreciate the kindness of our team and clients to help WHEAT out.  We also thank our Premier teammate, Barbara Brown, who introduced us to this amazing organization.

Premier Subaru, Premier Kia and the entire Premier Automotive Group, remain committed to the communities in which we serve.
