Smith Ford, St. Joseph School participate in fundraising event

Smith Ford recently presented St. Joseph School with $3,000 generated by a special promotion.

The dealership and school partnered last fall to support education in a Ford Drive One 4 UR School event on the St. Joseph campus. For each test drive, Ford gave the school $20.

This is the fourth time St. Joseph has partnered with Smith Ford for a Drive 4 UR School event, which has totaled more than $20,000 in support of education.

In the past, the money has been used toward the purchase of a new school bus, technology upgrades and student clubs and programs, including the National Honors Society and drama performances. This year, the $3,000 will be used for outreach to the Conway community through service and marketing.

“We are so grateful to Smith Ford for partnering with us for this event,” said Nicole Rapold, development director at St. Joseph School. “Over the past 100 years, Smith Ford has supported education in our community in countless ways. It is through their support that we are able to continue and sustain Christ-centered, Catholic education in the Conway community.”
