A $1000 Grant was awarded on Oct 10th, by Sunbelt Ford Sylvester, for BFHS’ participation in their Drive 4 UR Community event at Piggly Wiggly on August 9th, wherein BFHS met (and exceeded) the 50 test driver goal. Drivers simply had to take an entrance survey, test drive a Ford vehicle with a representative from the charity of their choice, and take an exit survey. In return, Sunbelt Ford Sylvester donated $20 per driver to the respective charity (this year up to 50 drivers per charity). The annual Drive 4 UR Community event has been continually successful for all involved, and helps provide much needed funds during a time of year when it’s needed most. We thank Sunbelt Ford Sylvester for their generosity and support of their community!
