Tri-Star raises money for elementary school
Tri-Star Chrysler-Dodge-Ram-Jeep of Blairsville recently helped raise $2,600 for Blairsville Elementary School through the Chrysler’s Drive for the Kids program.
Each of the 210 parents and guests earned a $10 contribution to the school from Chrysler by taking a brief test-drive in a Town & Country, the company’s award-winning minivan. Tri-Star Auto Group then added a $500 bonus, supplied the vehicles and provided volunteers from the dealership to assist in the fundraising drives.
Since Drive for the Kids was introduced in 1993, Chrysler dealers have worked with parents and educators in communities across the nation. Chrysler has contributed over $4.5 million for student needs
– from playgrounds and field trips to reading programs and computers.
Chrysler Group LLC is proud to continue this tradition of community involvement.
