Ford Motor Company and Freedom Ford are partnering to help raise money in support of Salem High School as part of Ford's Drive One 4 UR School program. Members of the local community will have the opportunity to raise up to $6,000 for the athletic department by test driving a Ford, Lincoln or Mercury vehicle at the high school gymnasium on Saturday, Oct. 16 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
For every person who test drives a 2011 Taurus, Fusion Hybrid or Sport, Fiesta or Mustang, Freedom Ford will donate $20 to the athletic department.
"We're excited for our first event with Salem High School to help raise money for their athletic department," said Jack Yancey, owner of Freedom Ford. "We know it is important that students continue to have opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities, and that's why, over the past two years, it has been a privilege to help support these important programs."
Since the start of Ford's Drive One 4 UR School program in 2007, over 173,000 people have helped raise more than $3.3 million for nearly 1,000 high schools across the country. Locally, Freedom Ford has participated in Ford's Drive One 4 UR School program for two years and raised over $16,000 for local community high schools.
To participate, please visit Salem High School between 10am and 2pm.
Participants must be 18 or older and have a valid driver's license. There is a limit of one test drive per household.
