An Evansville car dealership is giving a big gift – hoping to help out Tri-State children. D-Patrick Ford donated $2,500 to Junior Achievement of Southwestern Indiana on Wednesday.
The donation is part of their monthly test drive giveaway.
Junior Achievement says the money will go towards funding their programs which help teach children about career-readiness, financial literacy, and learning how business operates.
Stacy Carr with Junior Achievement says, “We rely on community support, so a $2,500 donation from an organization like D-Patrick is a great asset for us. It allows us to do the great work that we do, and we couldn’t do that without D-Patrick and the other organizations in our community.”
In July, Junior Achievement would receive $10 for each test drive of a new Ford at D-Patrick.
This is the third time Junior Achievement has received this award from D-Patrick.
