The Merry Moose Fair at the ReStore was a huge success
Tis the Season for shopping and having fun! And shopping they did. 25 local crafters offered many gift giving ideas. The ReStore was buzzing with lots of activity The ReStore was busy all day with people coming to check out the craft and vendor tables at the Merry Moose Fair, to test drive Ford cars and to try to win cases of 50 Back Beer (which will support the Critical Repair Program) and gift baskets. Even Santa was there with his merry elf.
All this to help raise money for our affiliate to build 4 homes on Rock Street in Lowell.
The Drive 4UR Community program was developed by Ford as a fun, engaging way to help community organizations raise money to support their charities and causes. For every valid test drive* completed at Drum Hill Ford on Saturday December15th Ford Motor Company is making a donation of $20 to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Lowell, up to $6,000.
