It is back to school time, which means celebrating our teachers, students, and volunteers. We have all heard the saying, "children are our future," and here at Metro Ford of OKC, we believe it!
Metro Ford of OKC partnered with the Foundation for Oklahoma City Public Schools (http://okckids.com/)
With our combined efforts and the willingness of our visitors at Metro Ford of OKC, we raised over $500 for the Oklahoma City Public Schools! The Metro Ford of OKC team was so excited when our first test driver of the morning happened to be a teacher at Taft Middle School. He couldn't wait to test drive the 2018 Ford Transit Passenger Wagon to earn $30 for his students!
One family of five happened to be shopping for a Ford F-150 and decided to sign up to earn $20 for Oklahoma City Public Schools even though they homeschooled their children in Chickasha!
Another family test drove a new Ford Flex to earn money for their Oklahoma City school! They heard about the Ford Drive 4 Your School event from their child's first-grade teacher and decided it would be a fun way to help their school and the Oklahoma City community.
It was exciting to have Matt Meyer from 98.1 WWLS-FM The Sports Animal (http://www.thesportsanimal.com/
The Metro Ford of OKC team is grateful to the Foundation for Oklahoma City Public Schools and The Sports Animal for volunteering their time and energy. We are also so happy to represent such a giving car brand at Metro Ford of OKC! This is our fifth test driving event with Ford overall, and this event marks the third time we have given back to the OKC community this year.
It means a lot to us that we are able to give back to our teachers and volunteers, and provide for the students of the Oklahoma City area!
"We've had so much fun today," said Emily Taylor, the Director of Marketing for Ted Moore Auto Group, "The teachers, volunteers, and staff [at Metro Ford of OKC] have been having a great time enjoying the weather, the food, and the vehicles. We can't wait to do this again."
The OKC metro is home to many of our employees so when we give back, we are beyond happy to give locally.
We hope to see you soon for your own test drive and our next events! To learn more about our Community Involvement check out our website (https://www.metrofordofokc.com/
