Palmetto Ford Lincoln raising money for Lowcountry Food Bank

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A West Ashley car dealership is using test drives to raise money for the Lowcountry Food Bank.

Palmetto Ford Lincoln on Savannah Highway is participating Saturday in "Driven to Give", a national fundraising initiative by the Lincoln Motor Company. From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. the dealership will donate $20 to the Lowcountry Food Bank for every test drive of a new Lincoln.

Those able to test drive a Lincoln will be able to do so without a sales person peaking over their shoulder. The only person who will be riding along will be a Lowcountry Food Bank staff member.

In addition to the test drives, a number of food trucks will be on site, including Outta My Huevos, Dulce, Roadside Seafood, Autobanh Mi, and Cast Iron. A portion of their proceeds will be donated to the cause.

There will also be a DJ at the dealership spinning music.

Palmetto For Lincoln is located at 1625 Savannah Highway in Charleston.
