  • Local dealership raises funds for Poquoson Middle School

    Pomoco Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Hampton with the Poquoson Middle School Parent Teacher Organization raised $2,490 to purchase laptops and iPads for a “laptop cart” at the middle school. The school has about two or three laptop carts, which teachers can reserve for their students. But the school needs another laptop cart, said Poquoson Middle School PTO President Jennifer Mosteller. The dealership brought several of its newer vehicle models to the middle school during its open house in August, she said. The Chrysler brand contributed $10 to the school’s PTO each time someone test drove a vehicle. “A lot of people are kind of skeptical if they are new to program,” Mosteller said. People are afraid they will be hassled to buy a vehicle later, she added. But she said she has never been pestered to purchase anything. The PTO had planned to split the money it raised from the dealership this year between laptops and a new electronic school sign. However, a city ordinance prevents them from having an electronic sign so they will likely purchase a new sign similar to the existing one and the majority of the $2,490 will go toward laptops. The PTO raised a similar amount of money last year for laptops and tablets and now has one-third of the funds needed to purchase 24 laptops and tablets. Chrysler dealers have been participating in the test drive program for schools called Drive for the Kids since 1993 and have raised more than $5 million for local schools, according to a company press release.
