The Warwick Valley Athletics Department recently accepted a $6,000 donation, thanks to the Leo Kaytes Ford Drive 4 UR School Program.

During homecoming week, every test drive generates a donation from the Ford Motor Company. Leo Kaytes of Warwick – and specifically Leslie Culkin and Leo Kaytes Jr. – spearhead the effort for Warwick Valley. This partnership is in its 10th year, and the District and Warwick Valley Athletics is greatly appreciative.

Athletics Office Manager Heidi Thonus organized the district’s efforts and has been a champion to this cause. The money has supported various projects, including improvements to our fitness center, the end-of-season awards banquet, and contributed toward a utility vehicle to be used at the cross country course. Participating teams received additional funds to purchase supplies, and the fundraising effort was extended to extra-curricular clubs such as Interact, Crew Club, Athletic Trainer Club and performance groups.

Thank you to Ford Motor Company and our friends at Leo Kaytes Ford for their continued support of Warwick Valley schools!
