Denton ISD

Schools earn dollars

in Chrysler campaign

Classic Dodge Chrysler Jeep in Denton partnered with two Denton ISD elementary schools this fall to raise money for classrooms.

Through the Cars for Classrooms promotion, the dealership donated money to McNair and Stephens elementaries for every adult who took a test drive of the Chrysler Pacifica minivan. McNair received $270 in donations while Stephens received $2,100.

The company’s test drive initiatives have raised more than $7 million for schools across the nation since they first began in 1993, according to a press release.
