Ford Test Drive to Support Greater Blackville Resource Centre

The Greater Blackville Resource Centre will be hosting a Ford Test Drive event on Saturday, June 3rd 2017, from 10:00am until 2:00pm in their parking lot at 12073 Route 8 in Upper Blackville. For every valid test drive completed at the event, Ford of Canada will donate $20 back into our community for the Greater Blackville Resource Centre sponsored programs such as the Blackville Food Bank. On that day, the GBRC will also be hosting a yard sale, bake sale and BBQ.

Although you can register at the event, the GBRC asks that you please register ahead of time to show Ford that they have enough people interested in taking a test drive. Click the link below – its quick and easy and there’s no obligation.

Launched in Canada in 2010, the Drive 4UR School and Drive 4UR Community programs are Ford’s pillar test drive fundraising programs. They are a fun and exciting way to engage schools and local community causes and support their fundraising efforts. Ford Dealerships partner with a local school or community organization to conduct a test drive event together. For every valid test drive completed at the event, Ford of Canada donates $20 to the cause – up to a maximum of $6,000.

In 2015, Blackville High School received $6,000 as part of their fundraising test drive efforts.
