Williamsport Christian School to hold 'Drive for the Kids' fundraiser
A "Drive for the Kids" fundraiser, hosted by Chrysler dealership VanCampen Motors Inc., will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Sept. 12 during the fall carnival at Williamsport Christian School, 1730 Four Mile Drive.
For every test drive taken during the hours of the fundraiser, the school will earn $10 from Chrysler brand, which will be put toward enrichment programs in need of funding. More participation equates to more funding from Chrysler brand. The fundraiser will take place in the parking lot of Williamsport Christian School.
Additionally, Chrysler supports the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights in an effort to instill bullying prevention instincts in parents, teachers and students - equal to that of putting on a seatbelt in the car. Bullying prevention statistics, tips and more will be available to take home from the fundraiser.
