BROCKVILLE – A city public school and a car dealership came together last weekend to help the Champions for Kids Foundation and Alberta fire victims.
Westminster Public School and Riverside Ford raised more than $1,800 at the Ford Drive 4UR Community event on Saturday, May 7, 2016.
Ford Canada donated $20 for every test drive taken at the Brockville dealership and $920 was also raised for the relief effort in Fort McMurray, Alta.
Another $920 was raised for the Champions for Kids Foundation.
Champions for Kids is a confidential service formed in January 2008 by the Upper Canada District School Board to help disadvantaged children and their families participate in sports, arts and other activities outside school hours.
A bake sale by the Westminster students also raised $250 for Coins for Change Adopt a Village program.
