Chrysler has teamed up with the National Parent Teacher Association, and through the new partnership the automaker and child advocacy association will support local PTAs across the country in promoting family engagement in education and raising funds for their schools via the Chrysler “Cars 4 Classrooms” fundraising program, which is focused on the all-new 2018 Chrysler Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid models.
We were sort of hoping for something around driver’s education reform, but maybe next time.
“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 in a press release. “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.”
The initiative helps raise money for the schools, as Chrysler donates $10 for every participant who takes a brief test drive (donations are capped at $2,000 per school). The Pacifica minivans are provided by participating franchised dealerships. To find out if your school or dealership is eligible to participate, visit cars4classrooms.com.
In addition to the test drive fundraisers, Chrysler will further support the National PTA by encouraging families to visit their child’s school and get more involved in their education by taking part in Take Your Family to School Week (Feb. 11-17, 2018).
Conveniently test driving family vehicles while also raising money for schools: if you ask us the Cars 4 Classrooms program seems to have a winning combination.
