The Drive One 4 UR School program was developed as a fun, engaging way to help high schools raise money to support their academics and extracurricular activities. Ford and Lincoln Mercury dealerships partner with local high schools to conduct test-drive fund raising events.
On Saturday, Warsaw Community High School PTO and Rice Ford in Warsaw are partnering for the Ford’s Drive 4 UR School event. At this important event, members of the local Warsaw community can support WCHS simply by taking a test drive in any brand new Ford vehicle.
For every test drive taken, Ford Motor Company and Rice Ford will donate up to $20 to WCHS PTO. Show your support for WCHS on Saturday, Sept. 22, by coming to the WCHS parking lot and test drive a new Ford Escape at no cost. A total of 300 test drivers are needed and you can sign up to win a Ford Escape and an iPod Touch.
WCHS is looking to fill 300 test drives from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. For every valid test-drive completed, Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to the participating high school, up to $6,000!
During the fall 2011 session of Ford Motor Company’s Drive One 4 UR School program, 25 high schools were engaged to participate in a student video contest for the chance to increase Ford’s donation to their respective booster club(s). Eleven participants accepted the challenge, and were tasked with creating original content that would capture the spirit of their event along with highlighting Ford’s commitment to their local communities. WCHS is taking part in the contest.
