The team at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet came across this local news story explaining Oasis NC's need to purchase a bus, as their only form of transportation now is the teachers personal vehicles. As one of their main missions to explore Wilmington, North Carolina to improve the students' learning and development, we wanted to do our part in helping the school raise more money quicker to reach their goals.
Chevrolet launched a nation-wide campaign encouraging everyone to use the extra day (Leap Day) to do something a little bit extra for one person, or several people in your community. One part of Jeff Gordon Chevy's #DayItForward campaign was to give these kids a day to remember and help spread the word about their fundraising efforts. The Wilmington Hammerheads Youth FC
staff gladly offered to give these a couple hours of fun at their indoor facility. We also contacted Enterprise Rent-A-Car who was eager to loan the school two Transit vans for the day to get them to and from the facility.

To further the campaign to raise funds, Jeff Gordon Chevrolet launched a campaign giving people the chance to win a new car for donating.
