Deering Memorial Community Center in South Paris gets donation

SOUTH PARIS — Ford Motor Company’s Drive 4UR community campaign recently donated $440 to the Deering Memorial Community Center. In July, Ripley and Fletcher Ford of South Paris hosted a Drive 4UR Community Campaign at its dealership to raise money for the center.
Ford donated $20 to the community center for each person who test drove a new vehicle that day at the dealership and completed the before and after surveys.
The money raised will be used to help replace and insulate the communitycenter’s roof.
