Drive For Education Groove Auto


Every Child holds a Key to the Future.

DRIVE for education® is a forward-thinking charity program created by the employees of Groove Auto as a way to make an impact in local neighborhoods where we work and live. It's about enriching the lives of children through education and foundational support. The program is locally targeted and classroom focused, enabling area schools to receive donations during the school year that directly impacts the students, the school's facilities and the teachers. Dedicated proceeds from every vehicle we sell funds our DRIVE for education® program

Our goal with DRIVE for education® is to establish and foster lasting relationships with area schools and educational foundations to provide continual  support in our neighborhood classrooms.
