Recently the Chrysler brand announced it has become a national sponsor of the National PTA.
“Across the country, PTAs work hard to support their school communities and increase family engagement in education, which has been proven to improve student and community outcomes,” said Jim Accomando, president of National PTA. “National PTA is pleased to team up with the Chrysler brand to help PTAs support their schools and get more families involved in their child’s education.”
For those of you currently or previously involved with your local PTA, you know that fundraising is a big part of the association’s activities each year. To help, the Chrysler brand created a “Cars 4 Classrooms” fundraising program.
Through Cars 4 Classrooms, PTAs and schools can set up test drive fundraising events, featuring the Chrysler Pacifica and Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans. Each participant who takes a test drive can earn the school $10, up to $2,000, donated by Chrysler.
Local, participating Chrysler dealerships will provide the vehicles for the events.
“The Chrysler brand and its dealer network have worked with families and educators on test drive fundraisers in communities across America for more than 25 years,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT®, Chrysler and FIAT®, FCA – North America. “Through our partnership with National PTA, the goal is to give every school in every community the opportunity to thrive. Every test drive in the all-new Chrysler Pacifica will help initiatives like after-school programs, new playground builds and technology updates.”
