PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth residents may be familiar with Oliver Fordâ€™s â€śDrive One 4 YOUR Schoolâ€ť fundraising events, but this Saturdayâ€™s proceedings will be a little different.
â€śDrive Smart for Your Schoolâ€ť will feature Lincoln cars, with money from test drives going toward the Plymouth School of Inquiry, Plymouth High Schoolâ€™s New Tech school opening this fall. For each person that test drives one of the cars, $20 will be donated to the school by Lincoln. Oliver Ford plans to match this, making a total donation of $40 per test drive.
