Drive for the Kids fund-raiser at North Elementary on Aug. 28

IRON MOUNTAIN – Riverside Auto Sales will partner with parents and teachers for a “Drive for the Kids” fund-raiser to help raise money in support of North Elementary School in Iron Mountain at the school’s open house on Thursday, Aug. 28.

From 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 28, parents and guest will have the opportunity to earn a $10 contribution for North Elementary School from the Chrysler brand by taking a test drive in the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country minivan. Any licensed driver, age 18 or older, may drive and earn the donation for the school. Riverside Auto Sales will provide 2014 model Chrysler brand vehicles along with volunteers from the dealership to help with the test drives and answer questions.

“The Drive for the Kids program offers our school a unique way to reach our fund-raising goals without having to ask our families to reach into their own pockets,” noted Jodi Maycunich, a third grade teacher at North Elementary.

“Parents and friends can help us make a difference by donating their time for a test drive. In return, Chrysler brand will donate $10. It’s that easy. We are pleased to be able to have this opportunity from the Chrysler brand and Riverside Auto Sales,” she added.

The 2014 Drive for the Kids Most Drives Contest gives the school the chance to drive up their donation from Chrysler. At the end of the 2014 year, the program will award an additional $5,000 to the school that posts the highest number of test drives in each of five designated geographic regions — Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Centra and West. This means a total of $25,000 in additional funding from Chrysler will be donated through the Drive for the Kids program.
