Great Volunteer Opportunities in the Terryville Area

At Terryville Chevrolet, we believe in giving back to our community — a belief we’ve backed up by donating to more than 20 local charities and nonprofits. Volunteering in Terryville is another great way to give back, and here are three of the many organizations in the area that could use your time.

Plymouth Community Food Pantry

Dedicated to fighting hunger in the Plymouth/Terryville area, the Plymouth Community Food Pantry opens its doors three times a week to members of the community in need of sustenance. A few hours a week, volunteers are needed to help stock and hand out items.

Animal Rescue Foundation

Terryville’s Animal Rescue Foundation is a nonprofit, non-destroy shelter devoted to rescuing and caring for the community’s stray, abandoned, and abused cats and dogs. Volunteers are frequently needed at ARF (get it?) to help feed, clean, and play with the animals.

Miracle League of Connecticut

Located in nearby Bristol, the Miracle League of Connecticut centers its mission on the belief that “every child deserves a chance to play.” This nonprofit gives kids with physical and cognitive challenges a chance to enjoy sports and recreation in a safe, accessible way. Volunteers here can buddy up with a child, help staff special events, or help train new bicycle riders at the annual iCan Bike summer camp.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Diesel Engine Wows Experts

We’re still eager to learn about the 3.0-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel engine that will grace the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Diesel sometime this year.

We’re still eager to learn about the 3.0-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel engine that will grace the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 sometime this year. Chevy has thus far been mum on its diesel engine offering — apart from saying that it’ll be the most capable and efficient in the segment — but some experts around the industry have already gotten the scoop on the new Duramax®. What they’re saying shouldn’t come as much of a surprise: It’s great.

Car and Driver’s Joey Capparella writes that the 3.0-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel generates 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque according to an official order guide and specs sheet. That puts the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Diesel well ahead of the 250 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque produced by the turbo-diesel of its blue oval-adorned competitor. What’s more, its makes more torque at a lower rpm — 1,500 rpm compared to the competition’s 1,750 rpm.

It’s still not yet known what the 3.0-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel will produce in terms of towing, payload, or fuel economy, but it’s a fair bet that it’ll stand up pretty well against its competition in the segment.

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Diesel will be available soon at Terryville Chevrolet. Watch this space for more information as it comes.
