Drive your way to a donation with Dutro Ford on Saturday.

If you head down to Dutro Ford on the 18th from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and test drive a car or truck the Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to the United Way of Muskingum, Perry and Morgan Counties. Dave Wallace, Manager at Dutro Ford wants people to know that this event is purely fundraiser for United Way,

"It’s not a sales event, we aren’t here to sell cars to you when you come in. Test drive a car and raise money for United Way. You know, United Way does a lot of things locally here for us" said Wallace.

The goal is for at least 100 people to test drive cars at the "Drive 4 UR Community" event. After you test drive a car you can enjoy some food and drinks while you fill out a quick survey. Audrey Foster from United Way says that this is the first year of this event and the partnership with Ford.

"Boy! This has got to be one of the easiest things for people to do. Just come out, test drive a car and $20 then will be donated to United Way"said Foster.

The United Way of Muskingum, Perry and Morgan Counties helps fund 25 local programs that help over 35,000 people in the community.
