Ford Motor Company and its dealers have launched a new program called Drive 4 UR Community, which is designed to help raise much needed funding for local community groups and nonprofit organizations.
Drive 4 UR Community is very similar in concept to Ford’s successful Drive 4 UR School initiative, which has raised more than $20 million for local schools since its inception in 2007.
Two Rivers Ford is bringing Ford Motor Company’s Drive 4 UR Community program to the Mt. Juliet community in an effort to raise up to $6,000 for the Kiwanis Club of Mt. Juliet and West Wilson Cheer. For every person who takes the wheel and test-drives a new Ford vehicle at West Wilson Middle School on Saturday, Sept. 13, Two Rivers Ford and Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to the Kiwanis Club of Mt. Juliet and West Wilson Cheer. The funds will go toward supporting the community involvement activities of the Kiwanis Club of Mt. Juliet and the competition and travel expenses of the West Wilson Cheerleading Program.
“We know funding for community programs is hard to come by, and we want to do our part to help make sure these programs remain available,” said Tommy Crockett, general manager at Two River’s Ford. “We’re excited to raise money to help children in our community become tomorrow’s leaders and role models.”
The event, which will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., will feature many vehicles from Ford’s impressive line-up. “Whether you are looking to test out our fuel efficiency vehicles, like the Fusion or Focus, or are more interested in an electric vehicle, like the C-MAX, we will be able to put you behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle,” Crockett said. Dealership staff on site will be able to assist with all Ford vehicles and provide additional information about each vehicle available for test-drive.
To participate in this event and get behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle, visit West Wilson Middle School, 935 North Mt. Juliet Road, Mt. Juliet, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 13.
Participants must be 18 or older and have a valid driver’s license. There is a limit of one test-drive per household. All test-drives will last approximately 7-10 minutes.
