Drive a new car for the kids

Gresham Ford is inviting residents to test drive a new Ford vehicle and support the football program at Centennial High School.

From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22, Gresham Ford will donate $20 for every test drive taken at the dealership, 1940 E. Powell Blvd.

The event is part of Ford Motor Company’s Drive 4 UR School Program, which annually raises money to help area schools. For the past five years, Gresham Ford has hosted test drive events twice a year, netting between $2,500 and $4,000 with each event. In October 2011, the drive raised more than $4,700 for student organizations at Gresham High School.

For more information, call Gresham Ford at 503-665-0101.
