Pilger dealership contributes to ECHS football program

Jason Pilger Chevrolet of Atmore announced a financial contribution to the Escambia County High School football program on the Chevy Youth Sports program, according to a release.

The partnership features a one-time monetary contribution to assist ECHS’s football program with registration fees, equipment costs, facility maintenance and other administrative fees. The program also provides an opportunity for community members to earn additional funds for the league via a test drive fundraiser.

“Being involved with sports helps kids develop skills like leadership, cooperation and sportsmanship while bringing families and communities together to show their support. Jason Pilger Chevrolet of Atmore and Chevy Youth Sports are proud to help Escambia County High School football bring so many smiles to kids and families in Atmore,” said Ben Jackson, general manager for Jason Pilger Chevrolet of Atmore. “Chevrolet believes in the power of play as a way for young people to build the skills needed to be successful in the future.”

The Chevy Youth Sports program gives Chevrolet dealerships the opportunity to provide support for youth athletic programs across the country. In 2020, nearly 500 Chevrolet dealerships will participate in the program nationwide, according to a release.

“Chevrolet vehicles are designed and built with busy families in mind, featuring a comprehensive suite of available safety features; technologies that make the journey more comfortable and engaging for the entire family; and the space and flexibility needed to haul people and cargo. We would encourage everyone to come take a look at what Chevrolet has to offer,” Jackson said.
