Blythe’s Larry Green Auto Group team will host another Ford Motor Company “Drive 4 UR School” benefit event Friday, Oct. 11, at the Twin Palm High School (TPHS) campus (811 W. Chanslor Way), from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Organizers and volunteers will be coordinating quick and free test drives on any of the day’s provided vehicles, with $20 donated toward the continuation school for each.
“Larry Green Ford invites our community to come and support this fundraiser to raise money for Twin Palms High School. The money will help build a ‘Scorpion Den’ and support incentive programs like field trips, sports tournaments, and other incentive programs. We look forward to seeing you on this day and thank you for your support,” stated Palo Verde Unified School District (PVUSD).
The Larry Green team has hosted the “Drive 4 UR School” benefits since the fall of 2017.
The interactive fundraiser has helped bring outside corporate funds into the Blythe community toward the greater goal of supporting local youth.
This year, the April “Drive 4 UR School” benefit at Felix J. Appleby Elementary School saw $8,000 donated from the program.
“Being in business in Blythe, it’s super important to support our local schools. We’re watering the plants around us — that’s how we all grow and benefit and advance so that our kids move forward. And when they grow up, they remember to do the same for their next generation of kids,” said Larry Green Auto Group Business Manager Patty Johnson following the Appleby donation. “By continuing to buy cars from us, you’re contributing to the community. When you buy a car or get your oil change at Larry Green, you’re giving back locally. We promise to continue these programs as long as we’re here in Blythe.”
Palo Verde High School (PVHS), Ruth Brown Elementary School, and Margaret White Elementary School have all been previous beneficiaries as well.
On Sept. 25, the Larry Green team presented the Joe Wine Recreation Center with $5,120 from the “Drive 4 UR Community” event in October.
“Drive 4 UR School and Drive 4 UR Community showcase what Ford is all about. We are proud to have the Ford name on our vehicles and to make such a tremendous impact in communities. These donations make a difference every year across the United States and Ford Motor Company is here to help schools and organizations reach their loftiest goals,” stated Ford Motor Company’s Director of U.S. Marketing Matthew VanDyke.
