The VanDevere Bunch Thrive & Drive Program

VanDevere Inc. continues to establish a partnership with local area schools and organizations for the VanDevere Thrive & Drive Program. This partnership is a way in which VanDevere can make a contribution to our local communities. Our goal is to raise money through this effort for the children and families of our community. We are teaming up with these local schools and organizations to donate a brand new Chevrolet or Kia vehicle to be used in a raffle to generate funds for a specific school project to be determined by each school.

The funds generated benefit these school and organizations directly by providing supplies, upgrades, renovations, improvements, and scholarship funds and assistance to name just a few. VanDevere would like to thank everyone who makes Thrive & Drive a success in helping these schools and organizations year after year.
