Chrysler raises $1,540 for Houlton school

Hudson Chrysler LLC helped to raise $1,540 in funding for Houlton Elementary with Chrysler brand's Drive for the Kids program. The fundraising event was held on Nov. 10 in conjunction with the Fall Festival event.

"The Chrysler brand and our local dealerships are committed to giving back to the communities where we do business," said Chrysler representative Jeff Hines. "We are extremely proud to support both schools and organizations, as they encourage student development and growth."

One hundred twenty-nine participants earned a $10 contribution to the school from Chrysler brand by taking a brief test drive in a Town & Country minivan. Hudson Chrysler LLC supplied the vehicles, and volunteers from the dealership were on hand to assist in the fundraising drives.

"Chrysler supports schools in the communities where the company does business," said Hines. Since 1993, when Chrysler introduced Drive for the Kids, Chrysler dealers have worked with parents and educators in communities across the nation. Chrysler has contributed over $4 million directly to local schools for student needs, from playgrounds and field trips to reading programs and new computers.
