Â Fifty-five parents and guests each earned a $10 contribution to the school from Chrysler by taking a brief test drive in a Town & Country, the companyâ€™s award winning minivan. Country Auto Center supplied the vehicles, and volunteers from the dealership were on hand to assist in the fundraising drives.
â€śDrive for the Kids is a mutually beneficial program. Weâ€™re pleased to support our local schools, and enjoy demonstrating a terrific, world class product,â€ť said Joe Martin Jr., owner of Country Auto Center. â€śParents are genuinely interested in testing our Chrysler minivan with all the advanced safety, technology, and economy features; and we are happy to help raise extra dollars for the school. We all work together for the kids. Everyone has a great time.â€ť
Chrysler supports schools in the communities where the company does business. Since 1993, when Chrysler introduced Drive for the Kids, Chrysler dealers have worked with parents and educators in communities across the nation. Chrysler has contributed an estimated $4 million, directly to local schools, for student needs from playgrounds and field trips to reading programs and computers. Chrysler is proud of this tradition of community involvement.
