Chrysler Drive for the Kids: 20 Years & Nearly $5 Million Strong

Chrysler Drive for the Kids: 20 Years & $5 Million Strong

There are two things that all of us here at the Chrysler brand particularly enjoy: (1) Doing our part to give back to the communities in which we live; and (2) getting potential new Chrysler fans behind the wheel of our vehicles.

It’s no coincidence then that Chrysler Drive for the Kids—a program celebrating its 20th year—combines these two passions in one event where local schools benefit each time another person test drives a Chrysler Town & Country, the most awarded minivan ever*.

Here’s how it works: During a typical Drive for the Kids event, which the school signs up for in advance, any licensed driver, age 18 or older, can personally earn a $10 contribution for the school from the Chrysler brand by taking a test drive in the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country minivan and other 2013 model year Chrysler vehicles. In other words, with each test drive that happens, a $10 contribution is made.

In the two-decade history of Drive for the Kids, millions of dollars have been raised and donated to deserving schools all across the nation. To do your part, start by visiting the Drive for the Kids website, where you can learn about enrolling your son or daughter’s school in a Drive for the Kids event of its own. Or, check out the current Drive for the Kids schedule to find an event near you. Please note that certain events may be invite only; contact the host school for more information. Note also that the event schedule is updated monthly, so be sure to check back.

Watch highlights from last year’s Traverse City Drive for the Kids event to get a sense of how the program works. Highlights from the Sacramento and Delhi, New York, events are also available on the Forward Look blog.
