Kidd Ford makes donation

Kidd Ford donated $6,000 to Project Graduation 2012 Thursday through its Drive One 4 UR School program.
“We are happy to be giving this donation to project graduation,” said Kidd Ford owner Terry Kidd. “This is the first time in a while that we’ve been able to donate the full $6,000. We would like to give the maximum every time.”
The donation reached the max due to support from the community. While the program costs nothing to those who participate, it does require that up to 300 adults test drive a Ford at the dealership during specific program hours. For every test drive taken, the amount donated increases by $20, up to $6,000.
The Drive One 4 UR School program was developed by Ford as a way to help schools raise money to support their sports and extracurricular activities. Project Graduation, a graduation night event that is meant to provide a safe place for students to celebrate the accomplishment of graduating high school.
“We want to thank Terry Kidd and all the employees of Kidd Ford in their continued support to the school,” said David Britton, a member of the Project Graduation Committee. “This donation, and those in the past, have been very much appreciated.
Britton says nothing drives quite like a Ford.
“I’ve been a dedicated Ford owner for more than 20 years,” he said. “I love mine. The next time the Drive One 4 UR School program is offered, drive one. You will see why I love mine, while supporting local schools.”
Kidd Ford’s dedication to offering the program has succeeded in donating approximately $70,000 to local schools since 2007.
