Ford Motor Company is collaborating with Donley Ford Galion to host a Drive 4 UR Community event to raise funds for American Red Cross of Crawford County

Galion, OH May 2016 – Much like the Drive 4 UR School program, Ford Motor Company’s program, Drive 4 UR Community, is designed to help raise much-needed funding for area charitable organizations. Donley Ford Galion, with the assistance of Chris Copper, Major Gift Officer II, American Red Cross – The Ohio Buckeye Region, have planned the following event:

Drive 4 UR Community will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday at Donley Ford of Galion, 702 Charles Street. Drive 4 UR School and Drive 4 UR Community programs have raised more than $20 million for local schools and community organizations since the inception of Drive 4 UR School in 2007. Drive 4 UR Community came into existence in 2012 to provide the same opportunity to community organizations in need as was offered to area schools.

During Drive 4 UR Community and Donley Ford Galion will team up with Red Cross and many volunteers to complete the test-drive fundraising event. Donley Ford of Galion will provide new Ford cars to be test-driven and work together with Copper of to organize and publicize the event.

For every valid test-drive completed, Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to the Red Cross of Crawford County (up to 300 test-drives), providing the opportunity for Red Cross of Crawford County to receive up to $6,000 to help with disaster relief in the community.

“The Drive 4 UR Community program is a great example of how Donley Ford of Galion can and does go further in our community to help meet the local needs of our community. We take pride in the opportunity for consumers to test-drive and not have to worry about a sales pitch,” said Tim Waddell, General Sales Manager.
