Schram Chrysler Dodge Jeep Inc. in Manhattan helped raise $800 in funding for Bergman Elementary School with Chrysler brand’s Drive for the Kids(r) program.
The fundraising event was held on March 28, in conjunction with Literacy Night & BBQ.
“We are pleased to support our local schools, and enjoy demonstrating a terrific, world class product,” said Jeff Hines, Manager of the Denver Business Center for Chrysler.
“Drive for the Kids allows us the opportunity to work together for the kids and everyone has a great time!” he said.
Participants earned a $10 contribution to the school on their behalf from the Chrysler brand by taking a brief test drive in a 2014 model Town & Country minivan, as well as other Chrysler vehicles.
At the conclusion of 2014 program, the school with the highest number of test drives in each one of the five geographic regions (Southeast, Northeast, Midwest, Central, and West) will win an additional $5,000, for a total of $25,000 in additional funding from Chrysler through the Drive for the Kids program.
Since 1993, when Chrysler introduced Drive for the Kids, Chrysler dealers have worked with parents and educators in their communities.
