 Making an impact on your school!

Every child holds a key to the future.

Drive for Education is truly special. It's a forward looking program created by the employees of Berlin City Auto Group as a way to strengthen the neighborhoods in which we live and work. School is a great place to build the foundation for the future. This initiative supports our schools in hopes it allows educators to shape future scientists, engineers, artists or musicians. Berlin City's Drive for Education has supported the purchase of library books, interactive whiteboards, music programs, audio equipment and automotive testing equipment. In 5 short years Drive for Education has donated over $400,000 to schools all over Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire.
