Ford Motor Company and Superior Ford partnered to help raise money in support of Zachary High School as part of Ford’s Drive One 4 UR School program. Members of the local Zachary community helped raise $4,000 for Zachary High School by test driving a Ford vehicle. Superior Ford worked with Zachary High School to host the one-day event on Sept. 3. For each participant who came from a unique household, Ford and Superior Ford donated $20. Approximately 200 people raced down to the high school.
Since the start of the program in 2007, Ford’s Drive One 4 UR School program has raised over $3.3 million for nearly 1,000 high schools across the country and has enabled more than 173,000 people to test drive new Ford vehicles. The monies raised during the Drive One 4 UR School program have helped fund extracurricular activities like sports and band programs, helping to ensure that these programs continue in local communities.
