Drive 4 UR School event helps ZHS _lowres


Superior Ford is partnering with Zachary High School to present the Drive 4 UR School fundraiser from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 25.

Ford Motor Co. developed the Drive 4 UR School program in 2007 to help raise funds for local high schools.

With the help of a local dealership, schools organize, promote and hold a one-day Ford test drive event.

For every qualified test drive that’s completed at the event, Ford donates $20 to the school with a goal of raising up to $6,000.

ZHS Principal Joe LeBlanc said he needs 300 people to test drive vehicles Wednesday.

“We need the money. We’re having to pay for things now that we never had to before and between state mandates and what we’re losing, this helps bridge the gap,” LeBlanc said.

“It’s not often a school has the opportunity to receive $6,000 without having to sell something,” Superior Ford’s Brian Guidry said. “But that’s what we’re offering.”

Dealership staff will be on hand to assist with the Ford-model vehicles.
