DeLacy Ford held a Drive 4 UR Community Event in cooperation with Marilla Primary School, located in Marilla, NY. We encouraged customers, friends and community supporters to come out and test drive a new Ford vehicle. The test drive lasted approximately 10 minutes and for each test drive, Ford donated $20 to the school for each test drive and DeLacy Ford matched another $20 giving them $40 per test drive. The school ended up receiving a combined contribution of $6,440. The school determined that the funds earned were raised for the 2013/14 springtime field trips and to bring the Skydome Planetarium to Marilla Primary.
The Drive One 4 UR School program was founded in 2007 and has generated over $12,000,000 for schools around the country. Help spread the word so we can make this a huge success.
