Monteagle Elementary receives $2,400 through "Drive For Kids" program
MONTEAGLE, TN (WRCB) -
Monteagle Elementary received $2,400 thanks to Chrysler's "Drive For Kids" fundraising program.
The fundraiser was held May 16 in conjunction with the school's field day.
Chrysler made a $10 contribution to the school whenever someone took a test drive in the 2013 model Town & Country minivan as well as other Chrysler models available for test drive.
"The Chrysler brand and our local dealerships are committed to giving back to the communities where we do business," said Al Gardner, Director of the Southeast Business Center for ChryslerGroup LLC. "We are extremely proud to support both schools and organizations, as they encourage student development and growth."
At the conclusion of "Drive for Kids," the school with the highest number of tests drives will receive an extra $5,000. There will be five schools total in five regions.
Moss Motor Company Inc. provided the vehicles for the test drive.
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 nearly $5 million directly to local schools for student needs, from playgrounds and field trips to reading programs and new computers.
