As Henry Ford so eloquently said, “A business that makes nothing but money is a poor business.” And true to his example, Ford Motor Company is one of the most successful businesses in the US. And here’s a good reason why. Twice a year, we participate in the Ford Motor Company Drive 4 UR School events. This is an event that is targeted primarily for high schools across the country. For one day, students, parents, relatives and friends along with teachers, coaches and staff, take a quick 10 minute, no pressure test drive in a brand new Ford vehicle and Ford Motor Company donates $20. Then, for a quick FREE inspection of their own vehicle in our Quick Lane station, Ford Motor Company donates another $10. So, $30 from Ford Motor Company donated to a school program or organization for a brief 20 minutes of someone’s time. A total of $7,000 for the day, and all that’s required is a simple test drive and vehicle inspection.And true to Henry Ford’s precedence, The Seattle Region (Ford Motor Company) and Northwest Ford Dealers Association are sponsoring the Scott Firefighter Stairclimb on March 8th in Seattle, WA to help raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. In conjunction with our Drive 4 UR School event, the Northwest Ford Dealers Association will donate $20 to the LLS per test drive as well.So, come on out to Gresham Ford, March 14th 10am-4pm, and not only to support your schools, but also a great cause as well.
Henry Ford’s vision was as far reaching as the stars themselves. The sky is the limit when you understand that community is the foundation and our children are the building blocks of the future. His insight for the investment in our schools and our kids is truly about making more than just money!
