Tuesday April 21st Court Street Ford invites you to join us at Kankakee High School from 11am-6pm to Drive 4 Ur School. Together we can help raise up to $6,000 dollars for KHS. All you need to do is take a test drive or have your car inspected for FREE and we will donate $30 on your behalf. No purchase is necessary there are no gimmicks or strings attached.
The Drive 4 UR School program was started in 2007 when the economy was struggling in many areas as a way for Ford Motor company to work with local communities to help raise money for their schools. The money can be used for anything from sports equipment to desks or school supplies; however the school feels the funds will best be used. The money can also be used to make repairs to buildings and other maintenance needs.
In 2012 the program expanded to become Drive 4 UR Community which allowed the event to be hosted for other non-profits and organizations. In just a few years Ford has helped raise over $25 Million dollars and hosted over 5,000 events. “We congratulate the students, teachers, parents, dealers, nonprofits and communities who worked so hard through so many events to raise money where it is needed most,” said Tracy Magee, Ford Experiential Marketing Manager. “Drive 4 UR School and Drive 4 UR Community were developed as a fun, engaging way to protect important educational programs and community services. Ford and its dealers are proud to continue offering both programs locally through more than 1,000 events annually.”
