VERMONT SCHOOLS RECEIVE $13,500
Berlin City Auto Group Awards Five Local Schools with a Donation from its
Drive for Education Program
WILLISTON, Vt. – December 4, 2013 – Today, Berlin City Auto Group and its Drive for Education Program, a forward-thinking campaign created by the employees of Berlin City Auto Group, has announced the grant recipients in its Drive for Education program, donating $13,500 to nine area Vermont schools.
To be considered for the program, a school had to submit an application and essay to Drive for Education by the middle of November, 2013 explaining how their school would use a donation of up to $3,500. Berlin City Auto’s Brand Ambassadors, a group of employees that lead the dealerships’ community involvement campaigns, evaluated each of the school’s applications and selected the winners accordingly.
“We’re humbled and honored to have the ability to pay it forward. In 3 short years this program has been able to give our schools in New England a total of $247,290,” said Yegor Malinovskii, Vice President at Berlin City Auto Group. “We believe in giving back to the community and helping our local schools succeed.”
On December 18, 2013 at 11am, a presentation ceremony will be held at Berlin City Kia in Williston, Vermont. The Drive for Education program will honor these schools:
• Braintree Elementary School — Randolph, Vt.
• Dothan Brook School — Sheldon, Vt.
• Edmunds Elementary School — Burlington, Vt.
• Fairfield Center School — Fairfield, Vt.
• Franklin Center School — Franklin, Vt.
• Richmond Elementary – Richmond, Vt.
• Rick Marcotte Central School – South Burlington, Vt (2 grants)
• Winooski Middle School – Winooski, Vt.
• St. Albans Town Educational Center – St. Albans, Vt.
From each vehicle sold at its six dealerships throughout New England, Berlin City gives a portion of the sale to the Drive for Education program. This year, the Drive for Education Foundation has awarded $42,595 to New England schools with a total of $247,290 donated since June of 2011.
