Field Elementry School PTA

Yesterday, May 14, 2008, Jason Scott had the privilege of presenting a check to Field Elementary School in Canton, MI. The PTA used Dick Scott Dodge to raise funds by sending people to test drive new Dodge Journey vehicles. They earned $5 for every test drive. The school’s Principal, Pete Kudlak, and PTA President, Ann Marie Rockov, were kind enough to stop by the dealership personally.

The program was a huge success, not only for the dealership but for the PTA who earned a check for $880.

”Drive for the Kids is a mutually beneficial program. We’re happy to help the school, and we really enjoy demonstrating a terrific product, said Jason Scott, General Manager of Dick Scott Dodge. “Parents are genuinely interested in testing the versatility of the minivans, and appreciate the extra dollars for the school. I think everyone had a good time.”

Drive for the Kids was introduced in 1994. Since then, Dodge dealers have worked with parents and educators to conduct thousands of school fundraising events in communities across the nation. These events help to fund student needs from playgrounds and field trips to reading programs and computers.

It’s another way we show that we’re committed to this community.

Plymouth YMCA Father’s Day Run

Dick Scott Dodge will be sponsoring the 29th Annual Plymouth YMCA Father’s Day Run. The event will take place on June 15, 2008. This run has become a tradition for many families in the community as well as many from Canada, Florida and New York. Last year, over 1500 runners took to the streets of Downtown Plymouth.

The Father’s Day run is not only important because it is a tradition; it is also a huge part of the Strong Kids Scholarship program. This provides children with life changing experiences that would not be possible otherwise.

To further support the Plymouth YMCA, Dick Scott is having a used cell phone drive at all of our locations. We will have donation boxes set up in the show rooms of each of our dealerships to collect your old cell phones. All proceeds will go to help the Plymouth YMCA. If you would like to volunteer to work or run in the event please go to the Plymouth YMCA website for more information.
