Heiser Ford Lincoln will collect funds for Autism Speaks for every valid Ford test-drive completed that Saturday. The $20 donation per test-drive comes from Ford Motor Company, who will pledge up to a total of $6,000. It is an easy way to support the local charity, especially for those already in the market for a new vehicle.
Ford Motor Company acknowledges it takes a lot of dedication and funding to make a difference in the community. Chris Meyer, General Manager of Heiser Ford Lincoln, believes programs such as “Drive 4 UR Community”, allow volunteers to conduct a simple fundraiser that involves a network of supporters. “This is the second year that Heiser Ford Lincoln has held this type of event and we are thrilled to be taking part in it again” stated Meyer. “Ford already has great products. Now with their support of great programs like “Autism Speaks” they are truly making a difference.”
There are two ways those interested in joining Heiser Ford Lincoln in supporting Autism Speaks can contribute. Test drive at the dealership at 1700 W. Silver Spring Dr. on December 8th. Or, “like” Heiser Ford Lincoln on Facebook and click on the “Donate & Join” box to submit directly to the team’s efforts. Either is a great way to promote goodwill in the community.
