At George Coleman Ford, we're proud to be a part of our local community. Our Ford dealership in Travelers Rest, SC, has been around for many years -- since the beginning of Travelers Rest, for that matter. A hardworking entrepreneur named George Coleman opened the doors to our dealership in 1930, around the same time that Henry Ford began mass-producing automobiles. George Coleman worked hard to constantly better the community, even becoming Travelers Rest's very first mayor. Over our many years in business, our family-owned and -operated dealership has carried on this legacy and prided itself on the strong ties to our local community.
We value our loyal customers, and the best way we can think of to show our gratitude is by giving back to the community. That's why George Coleman Ford is always eager to give back to our hard-working neighbors. We not only like to help those in need, but we like to show our loyalty by partnering with a number of organizations and supporting many excellent causes.
Drive 4 UR School
Through the Drive 4 UR School Program, George Colman Ford donates to many local high schools and colleges. The concept is simple: customers just have to come in and take a test-drive, and we'll make a donation to their school of choice. By doing this, we can raise funds for schools to create new programs or for students to participate in sports, booster clubs, music programs and more. Schools that benefit from the Drive 4 UR School Program at George Coleman Ford include:
