Milnes Ford brings Drive 4 UR Community at three events to support local programs

LAPEER — Ford Motor Company and its dealers are working together to benefit communities nationwide. Drive 4 UR Schools/ Community events are designed to help raise much-needed funding for local community groups and nonprofits. To date, Ford dealerships across the United States have helped raise more than $35 million for local schools and nonprofits, thanks to their hard work and the Drive 4 UR School and Drive 4 UR Community programs. In fact, Milnes Ford of Lapeer has driven more than $41,700 into the Lapeer area since 2011.

Milnes Ford is bringing Ford Motor Company’s Drive 4 UR Community/ Schools programs to the Lapeer community in an effort to raise up to a maximum of $6,000 for the Lapeer Area Chamber of Commerce, North Branch Schools Band and Lapeer Area Citizens Against Domestic Assault (LACADA). For every person who test-drives a new Ford vehicle, Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to these organizations.

“We know funding for community programs is hard to come by, and we want to do our part to help make sure these programs remain available,” said Blake Milnes, general manager at Milnes Ford. “We’re excited to raise much needed money for the Lapeer Community.”

Dealership staff on-site will be able to assist with all Ford vehicles and provide additional information about each vehicle available for a test drive. Additionally, all participants will qualify for a Direct Offer Rebate from Ford for up to $750.

To participate in these exciting events and test-drive your favorite Ford vehicle, visit these events:

• Lapeer Area Chamber of Commerce: April 22 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Lapeer Center for Innovation;

• North Branch Schools Band: May 12 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the North Branch Middle School
