The Drive 4UR Scool program is a nationwide fundraiser sponsored by Ford Motor Company. For the second time this year, Lasco Ford partnered with a Fenton area high school to help raise funds via Ford’s test drive-program. This past Saturday, August 19th, students from Fenton High School teamed with Owen Road neighbor Lasco Ford to earn over $4,800 for the school’s Marching Band.

Fenton High School Campus Activity

The event, held on the Fenton High School campus, gives individuals an opportunity to drive one of Ford Motor Company’s exciting models. Drivers could put the redesigned Ford F-150 pickup truck through its paces. Drive the luxurious Ford Expedition family SUV. Experience the ride of Ford’s popular Fusion. Feel the power of the iconic Mustang or preview the economical Ford Focus.

Students Work to Raise Funds

The school’s faculty and students promoted the fundraiser. Lasco Ford provided the cars to drive and their employees helped to coordinate the logistics of the event. This year’s donation pushed Fenton High School over the $25,000 mark in total program funding. The contribution benefits the school’s Music Department.

Since 2011 Lasco Ford has helped area schools earn more than $55,000 with the Drive for Your School initiative. Ford has contributed over $35 million to nonprofits in the United States and Canada. Drives fund organizations such as schools, food banks, hospitals, and animal shelters. Ford Motor Company is passionate about the program. Returning a portion of Corporate income to the communities that support the manufacturer and their local dealers. Like Lasco Ford.
