HARVEST, Ala. (WHNT) – Across the United States, many vital arts, music and sports programs are being cut due to growing budgetary constraints and lack of funding, causing today’s youth to miss out on valuable opportunities to expand their knowledge and diversify their interests, as well as the chance to have a little fun!

Woody Anderson Ford wants to keep these opportunities available for our local students at Sparkman High School.

Woody Anderson Ford is bringing Ford Motor Company’s Drive 4 UR School program to the Harvest/Monrovia community in an effort to raise up to $6,000 for Sparkman High School. For every person who takes the wheel and test-drives a new Ford vehicle at 2612 Jeff Rd on April 20, Woody Anderson Ford and Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to Sparkman High School Softball team.

“We know funding for school programs is hard to come by, and we want to do our part to help make sure these programs remain available,” said Bobby White, General Manager, at Woody Anderson Ford.  “We’re excited to raise money for Sparkman’s softball teams.”

The event, which will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., will feature many vehicles from Ford’s line-up. “Whether you are looking to test out our fuel efficiency vehicles, like the Fusion or Focus, or are more interested in an electric vehicle, like the C-MAX, we will be able to put you behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle,” said Don Wessels, new car Sales Manager. Dealership staff on site will be able to assist with all Ford vehicles and provide additional information about each vehicle available for test-drive.

Since the start of Ford’s Drive 4 UR School program in 2007, more than $16 million in donations have been generated for high schools nationwide.

To participate in this exciting event and get behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle, please visit Sparkman High School  between  9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on April 20.
