WAUKESHA — On May 6, Griffin Ford and The Lowell Elementary School PTO in Waukesha teamed up and participated in Ford’s “Drive 4 UR Community” event. With the help of many PTO members and students of Lowell Elementary school, the event brought in over 100 drivers to test-drive Ford vehicles supplied by Griffin Ford of Waukesha. For every person that completed a test drive, the Lowell Elementary PTO received $20.

The “Drive 4 UR Community” event was started in 2012 with the goal of making a difference in communities across the country and has since become a top priority for Ford. Each organization selected by Ford for this program has the potential to raise up to $6,000 for their organization. Since the program started, the “Drive 4 UR Community” event has raised more than $1 million for these organizations.

With the PTO’s hard work and support, Lowell Elementary school raised over $2,000 for the PTO during their event.
