Young Ford is bringing Ford Motor Company’s Drive 4UR School program to Morgan High School at 344 E. Young Street on Friday, Sept. 27 in an effort to raise up to $6,000 for education in Morgan.
For every person who takes the wheel and test-drives a new Ford vehicle at Morgan High School, Young Ford and Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to education. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“This is a great event that will help raise needed money for the local schools, as well as give participants a chance to drive Ford’s newest and most popular models. We need everyone’s help to reach the $6,000 mark that Ford is ready and willing to pay. Come help us out and help the local schools,” says Geoff Grant, Young Ford Sales Manager.
“I am so excited for this event on Friday. The foundation wins because of people like Young Ford who truly care and help the community out in so many different ways.  This is the easiest money to make; it just costs a bit of time out of people’s day to support the teachers, administrators and especially the kids of Morgan School District,” says Brenda Crossley, Morgan Education Foundation Chair.  
The Young Ford team and volunteers will be onsite to help with test-drives and answer questions about the fundraiser.
Since the start of Ford’s Drive 4UR School program in 2007, more than $16 million in donations have been generated for high schools nationwide.  
To take the wheel at this fundraising event, participants can visit Morgan High School between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 27. Test-drives will take approximately 7 to 10 minutes. Participants must be 18 or older and have a valid driver’s license.
