Test driving a Ford this Saturday could earn up to $6,000 for Covenant Academy.
It’s part of Ford’s program called Drive One 4 UR School and it’s taking place Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Kidd Ford dealership at 5917 Manchester Highway.
For every test drive that’s taken, Ford will donate $20 to Covenant Academy, up to $6,000 for 300 test drives. Kidd Ford owner Terry Kidd applied to have this ninth local installment of Drive One 4 UR School and Ford approved it.
Covenant Academy is a K-9 school that was first established in 2002. Current enrollment is 115 students, up 25 percent from last year, with Alan Smith serving as headmaster.
“I’m a firm supporter of public education and high school athletics, but there’s also a place in our community for Christian education,” said Kidd. “For people looking for that type of atmosphere, Covenant Academy is a great place for children to get a quality education and we’re glad to support their efforts.”
Drive One 4 UR School is a way to provide financial support without making a monetary donation. All it takes is a few minutes of your time for a quick test drive and $20 will be allocated to Covenant Academy.
Kidd says there will be several vehicles available to test drive. In addition to providing financial assistance for the school, it’s also an opportune time for local residents to familiarize themselves with the latest products Ford has to offer.
“Ford is a market leader in technology and fuel efficiency and is putting some great vehicles on the road,” said Kidd.
Ford first launched the Drive One 4 UR School program in 2007.
Separate from the Drive One promotion, Covenant Academy will be conducting an iPad drawing for everyone who takes a test drive Saturday.
