Ford Driveby Benjamin Gidaro, PBL Public Relations Officer

Montgomery County Community College’s (MCCC) chapter of Phi Beta Lambda (PBL), is partnering with Ford Motor Company and Bergey’s Ford to raise up to $6,000 for student scholarships.

Ford’s “Drive 4 UR Community” is a new program designed to help local community groups and nonprofit organizations raise funds. It is modeled after Ford’s successful “Drive 4 UR School” initiative, which has raised more than $16 million for local schools since its inception in 2007.

PBL will host a Drive 4 UR Community event at MCCC’s Central Campus, 340 DeKalb Pike, Blue Bell, on Nov. 15 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. For every person who takes the wheel and test-drives a new Ford vehicle, Bergey’s Ford and the Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to MCCC’s Foundation for student scholarships.

The test-drive event is part of Student Philanthropy Day, which aims to educate the student body about the importance of philanthropy at MCCC and in the community. All proceeds will support the Foundation’s Student Scholarship Fund, which provides critical financial aid support to deserving and talented students.

Test drives will be held in the parking lot adjacent to DeKalb Pike (Route 202). Participants must be 18 years of age or older and must have a valid driver’s license. All test drives will last approximately seven to 10 minutes. There is a limit of one test-drive per household. For additional information, visit bergeysford.com.

Phi Beta Lambda is a student-led, collegiate-level organization of the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA). To learn more, visit fbla-pbl.org.
