Ford Canada’s recent Drive 4UR Community event will see over $500,000 go to the Fort McMurray wildfire relief effort.

Victory Ford Lincoln in Chatham-Kent was one of many dealerships across the country that donated $20 for every test drive they gave on May 7. The Drive 4UR Community project raised $171,000, which is being matched by Ford Canada.

The company is forking out an additional $100,000 and the Canadian Ford Dealer Association is contributing an additional $200,000, bringing the grand total over $500K.

Victory Ford held their test drives at Ursuline College Chatham, with donations also going towards the school. All proceeds will be given to the Canadian Red Cross.
