  • Portland-South Portland, ME (1888PressRelease) December 12, 2013 - Berlin City Auto Group, a family of dealerships founded in 1980 in New England, and its Drive for Education program, a forward-thinking campaign created by the employees of Berlin City Auto Group, announce the award recipients in its Drive for Education program. Donating $42,595 to 22 K-12 schools spanning across New England, Berlin City Auto Group has exceeded awarding of $247,290 to local schools. Recipient schools will be honored with a check presentation at a Berlin City Auto Group dealership in New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine on December 17, 18 and December 19.
